Well. Not really sure what to say...
I never really planned on doing anything like this, on-line marketing & business. However, I now have a disease called Trigeminal Neuralgia, which has turned me into a homebody (a bit like a hermit - lol!) If you searched Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) you'd find that it's referred to as the most painful disease known to man & has been referred to as the suicide disorder. I'm left with debilitating nerve pain on my face; like permanent shingles - on your face!! Two years ago I had the brain surgery that is usually effective for most TN patients, but the surgery was unsuccessful. I actually ended up at home with more pain????.
We have three wonderful kiddos and I am trying to find a way to supplement our income. Due to the pain, I obviously can't work full time, but I need to do something!!
Because of how stir-crazy I was getting, I challenged myself to start a blog (on January 1, 2015) and my challenge was to write a post every day of 2015. Despite the bad days, I have not missed one day in 2015!! (Yay me!!) I was just writing it for myself. I wasn't really expecting many followers, just family and friends. I really enjoy writing and the fact that I'm doing something. I decided to look into doing more than my blog online. So I started looking for a way to make an income on-line. Basically all I've found so far have been scams that have cost us money - I haven't earned anything. Finally I came across Wealthy Affiliate and thought I'd check it out. I don't really know what to do to generate an income, I just thought I'd give it a shot!!
Oh also, my blog is a Wordpress bog!
December 11, 2015 - update:
Finally bought my domain and got it set-up!! I'm pretty excited about it!! It took a few weeks, not because the directions were hard to follow, just due to time (either not feeling well or too busy with the kids, or both). But now it is done and it feels really good. So, just one step at a time. The only time-table is he one I set for myself!!
To help with research and treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia please go to http://www.tnnme.com (Trigeminal Neuralgia and Me) to sign a petition to have the World Health Organization (WHO) add Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) to their "Health topic list.
JennKC's Goals 3
Any amount of money - lol!! I'd be happy just having followers on my blog. Hmmm... just an extra $500 or so, enough to cover the costs of my middle daughters dance - it's crazy expensive!!
Ecstatic earning...almost anything. I don't know... a couple grand.
I am at home so I have the time. My youngest is now in afternoon kindergarten, so I have more time just for me. The only thing that holds me back is the bad bad pain days. It's difficult to commit when you can't guarantee that you can even get out of bed!!
