Our paths might not always be easySome days it seems like we are moving uphill on a slippery mountain. Other days you might feel that you are sinking in an ocean of "things to do."Some days I've felt like I was running on marbles.Running as fast as I could and not getting anywhere. The truth is, most businesses, not just affiliate marketing, have those days. It's part of the process. Those hurdles provide important learning opportunities. Welcome them, Use them. And keep moving forward.If this

Life changes in the blink of an eye.Most of us struggle in some way with balancing life choices and managing our priorities. The past few days have brought that into the forefront in my life.I've often told my children that we are not promised any time beyond the moment of the breath you now breathe. Live each moment as if it were your last. And remember that when you say good-bye to someone, make it special. It might be the last.No, I'm not a pessimist. I consider myself a realistic optimist.

Some days just don't come together the way I hope. Today was one of those days.Yesterday, one of our daughters was married to her best friend in a beautiful ceremony. We feel quite blessed that they finally found a way to complete their marriage vows, despite the pandemic. He is from another country, so the wait has been long.We had a wonderful time, although we did arrive home quite late. My furkids were so happy to see me! It's been many months since they were all alone for so many hours. The

We know the drill. Write, Edit, PublishBut too often, we are so ready to publish, we overlook the all-important edit.Maybe you are near the end of your work time. Or the phone rings. Perhaps you are just tired and want to get the post published.For whatever reason, you skim through the edit. Or maybe you skip it entirely. This came across a group I am on yesterday. I read it and needed to take a second look before bursting out in laughter. My family was now convinced I had lost my mind. But whe

“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”----Paulo CoelhoWhen you can see your goal, even feel and taste it, you drive straight toward it. Traveling without that focus leads you astray, off on side paths, or even in the entirely wrong direction. Know precisely what you want to achieve. Keep that high level of focus and motivation. This will drive y

My Tuesday Tip for my friends here at WA-- go mobile!Yes, I know most of us have smartphones and we use them frequently. But when we are writing posts and designing our websites, the laptop or desktop usually provides an easier solution.Honestly, I've never tried to use my cellphone for writing an article. I can't imagine doing so.And all that is understandable. We use the technology that is easiest and most efficient.Except...When looking up a product or referencing some information, that pock

I spent considerable time this morning checking on recent rankings and was so excited to see many on page 1 and 2 of various search engines. Google is still being stingy, but I did get a couple to rank (not top pages) but Bing and Yahoo showed me a lot of love!I highlighted this one, not because it was the best (the ones that rank on all 3 SE make me even happier) but I am so happy because this is one of my favorite sites but I had neglected it for a while. It was a strong site but I left it fo

Happy New Year!(Lunar New Year, that is)You may have heard it called the Chinese New Year. But the Lunar New Year is celebrated all over the world, and especially in Asian countries and communities. Because it is marked by the day when the first new moon appears in the lunar calendar, it lands on a different day each year, usually between mid-January and mid-February. This year, that day is February 12.In China, it marks the beginning of a 15-day celebration, filled with festivities and customs
