Cold and Crisp and 13 degrees

Last Update: January 27, 2021

It was raining last week, now it only got to 13 degrees F today. It is about 0 at night. We go from one extreme to the other anymore.

The top picture shows pink light of sunset with the moon rising. The photo doesn't do it justice. It looked much more pink in real life.

Here was the crisp blue sky and frosted trees earlier.

We went for a walk in the sun. I have hardly been in the sun for months so I didn't even mind the 13 degree temperature! With a scarf around my face I was fine. Our days are finally getting longer!

I had to catch up with my regular job so no time to work on website posts today but I always manage to get some time in at night. Today was one of one a few days in the last 5 weeks that I have not worked much on my sites. I am quite proud of how much I have accomplished. I am getting many of my sites switched over to new affiliates.

It has been great reconnecting with many of my old WA friends here since I have been back.

Onward and upward!

Wow Jessica. I give you credit for venturing out when it's so cold. It's raining here in CA this week which is much needed. I know what you mean about feeling proud of yourself for getting back to working on your sites. I need to focus on switching my affiliates as well.

Hi Erica,

It's even colder today (6 degrees) so I am glad we got out yesterday!

It was a major roadblock that I avoided and put off for too long. Now that I am digging into changing my affiliates I am so glad I did. I just hope the sales come in soon! I only have small ones so far. That is because I switched many of my links to PetCo however which was a mistake since they only pay 0.08%!!!

Amazon was nice when I could get 8% in the pet and home categories!

I hope you get yours switched over too.

Nice to see you again!

Jessica

Yikes! 6 degrees is brutal. Almost all of my sales have been on Amazon and I'm still getting my 4% which doesn't add up to much. The irony is that our daughter has a great job at Amazon. At least someone is bringing in the bucks!

Cheers and try to stay warm!

6 isn’t too bad when you have seen -60!

All my sales used to be through Amazon too. I would have stayed even at 4% if I could but they shut me down for writing about supplements that could potentially help with Covid. I stated I was not a doctor and said there was NO cure. I cited academic studies showing how the supplements worked against other corona viruses like SARS. I was too early though. I was number one for keywords like “supplements for coronavirus”. The FCC threatened me, Bing stopped ranking my posts and Amazon shut down my account. Now those same supplements are recommended even by government sources but I was just a few months too early and became a convenient target in their war against shady people promoting cures. The worst part is they owe me money for sales and I don’t make anything for sales from my cat site either since it was through the same affiliate account. So that’s why I had to switch all my links. I still think Amazon is the best place to start out though. I never had any other problem with them.

I lived in northern Canada for many years and remember the treacherous roads after an ice storm.

Beautiful pictures, Jessica. Alaska is one of my favorite places o n the planet. I'll probably never get there, but I love to see and read about it. I've been busy doing research. I actually love to do research. I have to stop myself or that's all I'll ever do. It's about time to begin writing.

Thanks Barbara. I know how you feel. I always want to know about a product before I write about it. I have learned how to balance that now I think...
