About OldCodger
Joined July 2013
"Old Codger": An elderly, mildly eccentric fellow. Old fashioned. That's me!

An old bloke from the Land Downunder - the World's largest and most beautiful Island! Over a lifetime, have done all sorts of things and now at retirement age. Not much fun, however, existing on a pension! There's me and my dog Jessie to feed, rent to pay, ISP bills - being on wireless internet in a rural area makes it expensive and running an old 1996 Ford Falcon wagon. Fortunately, it has LPG as well, which makes refilling bearable - for now, it's about half the cost of petrol, but always increasing - like everything else!

Nothing left in the $$ reserve tank, but I know there are many people in a worse situation than I am. It would be good to be able to help others who are also in a difficult financial situation - but I have to learn a lot of stuff myself first, being a complete techno-twit and new to anything to do with the Internet and marketing. I'm not on Facebook - you can see why - I don't twitter - just an occasional creak or grunt, and a few select people in my G+ circle. No subscriber list, (that's where the money is, so I'm told - which is why I'm still poor) no fancy phone or pad, just a PC running Windows 7 Pro. With my photography, I'm using an old Nikon D80, a pocket Sony W 630, learning to use Corel PaintShop Pro X6 and PS Elements 10 as well.

Nobody will employ an old codger, so I have to look for my own way forward to survive.

Now and then, I may ask a silly question, with the answer obvious to those in the know and brought up with computers. I was brought up in the age of pen and ink and blotting paper - in the previous century and the last Millenium! So, you can call me "mate" - but please, NOT "dude" - 'cos that ain't me!

My enjoyments come from my photography, a bit of writing and I love to go places when time and finances allow. A wobbly wireless internet connection plus exorbitant ISP rates which I can't escape, mean very little time is available for online chats and watching any videos here and elsewhere. That's my reality.

So, despite these pesky restrictions, here I go on a new electronic journey! I'm always happy to interact with fellow travelers along the way...

OldCodger's Goals 3
Money Goals
Being on a pension of about $300USD a week, less rent & living expenses for me and my dog and my car, doesn't leave much. My first goal would be to earn an extra $100 per week, being realistic, and it won't affect my pension. Then if things get up and running, I would be in paroxysms of orgasmic delight if I could earn an extra $500 per week by the end of 2013. Once again, being conservative and realistic. At the moment, with $50 per 3GB Wireless ISP costs, I can only afford to spend up to 3-4 hours a day on the net.

You will get there. I think that when you get your foundation in place you are truly going to realize how realistic your goals really are and how you are going to be able to achieve and exceed these with some hard work and effort!

G'Day OldCodger and welcome to WA. Maaate... Thanks for the follow and I think we're gunna get on just great. I know exactly what you mean about no-one wanting to employ us oldies so we do need to be proactive and I think we're in the right place. Don't ever think any question is silly and especially don't hold back on questions even if you think it may be silly. There's no such thing as a silly question. We're all here to help you and each other and it's a pleasure to have another fellow Aussie aboard the WA ship. I look forward to helping you in any way I can so we can both venture down this internet marketing path to our own personal riches. Have fun George and stay in touch matey. Cheers, Phil.

G'day Phil - I have replied, but maybe in another section somewhere... I case you don't see it, last year I was down around the Limestone Coast area, near Millicent, and loved the area - esp. around Beachport, Robe and the Coonawarra area. Still struggling with editing my WP site - it seems to do strange things, but that's a total novice for you! I'll be keeping an eye on your progress! :) george

G'day, Carson! can you please explain what's happening with the Private Message system? I've tried sending to two members today - one of whom I'd already sent PMs to and the message keeps coming up to enter a valid recipient name and that they must be Premium members. Both recipients have "Premium" tags next to their names, as do I. Have they "expired" in the last few hours? I was trying to get a review of my first site: http://seniorswealthopportunitiestoday.siterubix.com/ - so if you have a moment to spare, any comments would be most welcome. I don't think it's on the net yet... :) george

Hi George, send me a PM with the names of the users you are trying to contact and I'll look into why you cannot send them a message.

Cheers,

Carson
