I'm doing something kinda different over on my blog and wanted to extend an invitation to participate to all you awesome WAsIt's called a "Pin Party" - and, in short, I need things to pin to my Pinterest account so I'm reaching out to my readers, and to y'all, to see if you have a post or 2 that you would like for me to pin to my Pinterest account.There's no obligation or anything like that - no need to sign up for anything....nothing fishy going on - it's just an invitation =)My blog is PotPi

Just thought I'd drop in and say hello to all you wonderful Wealthy Affiliate people.It's been quite some time since I've blogged here - it's crazy how time just flies on by.Especially when you're super busy (and I like being busy, don't you?)My hubby and I have two more grandchildren now bringing our grand total up to four.(and no, I am not anywhere close to being "old enough" to be a grandmother...haha!)Both my son and his wife, and my daughter and her fiance, had a baby boy just six weeks ap

I was just reading this article that says that 2014 is the year of the Wood Horse. I was clueless as to what that meant so thought I'd share what I read (emphasis mine): "The Wood Horse year is a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better. Energy is high and production is rewarded. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory. But you have to act fast in a Horse y

By now, I imagine any of you that use - or have heard of - Squidoo have heard that things are going WHACKO over there.Like bat poop crazy kinda "whacko" (sorry if 'bat poop' makes no sense - it's a twist on a Southern expression to avoid saying really bad words...lol!)Rules are changing, new quality filters are in place and running, and lenses (pages on Squidoo) are being caught in these filters and being locked (ie, not live online anyone... one little step away from being totally d

Hey everyone... long time, no post. I've been SO busy. If anyone knows how to clone people, please let me know - I need a "mini me"...hahaha!In the midst of all the craziness, I received this email: Yep, I was fired.Along with other affiliates who happen to live in the State of Georgia.I talked about this whole Nexus Amazon Tax thing before here, but now it's really happening.Thankfully, that merchant is far from a big producer for me (well, one season a year I might miss them), but wh

Ever been writing an article and get stuck trying to find THE word that would work best?Or perhaps you know that using different variations of a word in your article is better than repeating the same word over and over?If so, I tripped across this cool little free tool that helps to "find the words".It's called VisuWords and it's pretty nifty.All you do is type your word into the search bar, hit enter, and let the tool create this diagram that lists out other similar words as well as wor

I live in the State of Georgia in the USA - and apparently, the powers that be have passed an "Amazon Tax" law that would require Amazon (and other online retailers) to collect sales tax on sales that start with my Georgia-based affiliate link and lead to a sale by a Georgia consumer.This whole Nexus Tax stuff is confusing... and a mess... and the State of Georgia's "solution" is horribly flawed.I just posted a long and detailed post on my blog about this situation explaining what this Nexus

I was reading the blog of a fellow WA member (Sundcarrie) today. She had 2 back-to-back posts... one where she was ready to quit all this (ok, was more frustrated than REALLY wanting to quit) and then a follow-up post where it was a new day with a renewed sense of determination.The reason behind these posts? She was feeling pressure from her hubby to "go get a real job".I was about to post a long-winded comment on her post, but decided to blog about it here.Why?Been there. Done that.Before I

In light of all the Google whackiness of late, I've been busy reading all I can, pouring over case studies, and watching webinars by just about anyone who offers info on the topic.Even if I get one little blip of information, it is good enough to drop in my Knowledge Bucket, which, in turn, makes me better able to help others (and help myself).But something funny has been happening - let me share one example with you.I was watching this webinar by someone who had done a very good blog post
