Hello everyone, sorry for the long gap between posts, that's about to change.
I'm going to tell you an interesting story about making money from blogging. This will take quite a while and I'll post daily from now, 25 June until 25 December. Yes only 6 months till Christmas. I'm no longer working, which is another story, and so have the time to do this seriously.
Let me start by telling you why I've decided to start making money from my blog.
I learned first how to switch the computer on and got familiar with all these weird things like backspace and save. It did take a while but I did eventually get the hang of some of the functions, enough to allow me to open an e-mail address and to send an e-mail to the Cape Nature Conservation head Joanne Jackson. I tried to post a copy of the e-mail here but have no idea how to do that. I have a copy in my e-mail archives. So if you can advise me I'd appreciate it.
Anyway, whether Joanne Jackson got my e-mail is a subject I have no information on, never heard a thing from Cape Nature Conservation. I did however start a blog and signed up to Facebook.
With the failure to connect with Cape Nature Conservation and not understanding what I was doing my first blog post was about God's word and the farm.
I still had no idea what I was doing. I'd practiced a bit in word and then wrote that post. Looking at it now after so many posts, I can see a beauty in it and that makes me proud.
I never did work out how to make money on the net. I could see how lucrative it could be for any project but didn't know how. By the way, what I was trying to do is new and they now call it "Crowd funding". Ahead of my time.
Yesterday I visited my little sister Toni. She had been sent a link to a guy by the name of Yaro Starak, someone I'd never heard of before. He teaches bloggers how to make, not just money but their blogs much more visited and informative. I was sent a link by Toni and have found what I believe is the easiest way to get out of a job I'm very tired of. Heres a link to Yaro's blog page, very informative and worth visiting.
I don't know how to monetize this blog yet but may well do just that. I know my writing is good and my posts are enjoyable so why not capitalize on the links that have formed through this blog? Don't worry, it won't change my blog nor will it be intrusive, there are ways to do that. It might however, become a little more upbeat and active. That will be good.
I will be posting again tomorrow but I need to sort out a whole lot of things before I can do this. I'll write about what those things are and what I'm doing about them.
Until then, Love you lots, Geoff.
P.S. Wish me luck and say a prayer for me.
