I participate as much as I can to provide comments for members at WA for subjects I am interested. Almost always I ask questions related to the content. It could be to clarify something or ask where I can buy the product if a link was not provided.My question is, should I expect to be notified if the site owner responds? I have never received a notification.What has been your experience?

So I am looking for some feedback/clarfication. Recently I was in need of a new grill brush for stainless steel grates so I googled "best grill brush for stainless steel". Here are some screen shots of my results:When I see the word Ad at the front of the link I assume that is an affiliate link. I assume the Ad is an Affiliate Marketer promoting that product or other similar products. That may not be accurate.FYI, when I clicked on the Ad it took me to the Juniper BBQ company website.What say y

I have not been very active on WA for quite a few weeks and not spending anytime on my Websites. So to get an email from one of my affiliate companies informing me that I earned $40.00 was a nice surprise.It also was inspiring. I hope to get back in the saddle and write blogs about my music interests. Have a great Sunday!

My last blog was said I would be gone for a couple of weeks consulting. Well that has turned into a long time engagement and I am having a blast. I spend about 2 weeks a month in San Francisco and all expenses are picked up by my client. It almost feels like a paid vacation. My wife joins me on the trips and my son who lives in LA will fly up on the weekend to hangout in one of the coolest cities anywhere. Today I got on the WA site after a long hiatus and enjoyed reading several posts WA folk

I was retired by my last company on January 11. I kind of got in the groove of not working. Out of the blue, about 2 months ago, I was contacted by a LinkedIn contact wondering what I was doing. Whatever I want was my response. He tells me my background is exactly what he is looking for and would I be interested in working full time? No I would not was my reply. He asked, what would you be willing to do? We settled on me coming out to San Francisco for 2 weeks to see how it goes. That is where

A Rhetorical Question Right?Anyway, I was looking around internet and ran into an article about making money blogging. It was interesting enough to share some statistics quoted. The author mentioned it took him 16 years to generate a $200,000 per year income from investing but only 4 years to reach the same income blogging. Wow!Why?Low Barriers To Entry - business jargon to say it is easy and inexpensive to get started.Enormous Demand Curve - It is as Kyle mentioned in a post, you can reach bil

I learn so much from my son and I apologize if I may bore you with his attempt to teach an old dog new tricks. Yesterday he turned me on to adding #mondaymotivation to my twitter post for a new blog post. My son said it will be grouped with other tweets under that hashtag. It works, I got more engagement than I have ever received before I added the hashtag. I decided to go on twitter and see what Tuesday looked like and here is my list:#TuesdayThoughts#TuesdayMotivation#TuesdayBookBlogs#Tuesda

My son suggested I watch or in my case re-watch Cameron Crowe's movie "Almost Famous". Set in 1973, Almost Famous is about a 15-year-old music fan who is inspired by the bands of the time. His writing ultimately lands him an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine to interview the up-and-coming fictitious band Stillwater (inspired by the Allman Brothers Band).The interaction between the lead character, William (Patrick Fugit) and his mentor Lester Bangs (Phillip Seymore Hopkins) was my son's in

Net Neutrality is on the chopping block so what does that mean to the independent marketer?The proposal, as I understand, would make it voluntary for providers to uphold net neutrality principles by including their position in the terms of service with customers.One fear of this proposal is that internet speed will go to those that are willing to pay for it. The concern for smaller companies is they won't have the capital to be able to run with the Big Dogs.The fear is they could impede traffic
