Has It Been 5 Years Already? My 5 Year Anniversary with HUBPages

Received this is my eMail today.

You have hit a pretty impressive milestone - your 5 Year Anniversary on the HubPages Network! You've stuck with us through thick and thin. You've braved the writer's block, rode the traffic waves, and hopefully made some lifelong friends. You are truly a veteran Hubber. Happy Hubbiversary! 

Fun fact: Couples traditionally exchange wood gifts on fifth anniversaries. Maybe today is the day for getting a gorgeous new writing desk!


Has It Been 5 Years Already?

I won't be getting a writing desk.  Nevertheless ...

Awesome sauce!

Introduction to Classical Music ~ Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Tchaikovsky

Many of the famous classical music composers that we know of – Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky - are no longer with us.

Popular singers, songwriters and musicians like the late Nina Simone, the late Michael Jackson, Sir Paul McCartney, and Alicia Keys have all said they draw inspiration from or have been greatly influenced by these composers.

The above is regarded by historians as the most accurate surviving likeness of Mozart, painted when the composer was 26 years old. It is a section of an unfinished 1782 portrait by Joseph Lange. The splotchy texture of the composer's cheeks, visible in the original painting on display at the Mozart Museum in Salzburg, was verified by Mozart's contemporaries. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

You heard that most music stores owners are tempted to put their classical music selections in a small room at the back of the store; however, it was just a bit of humor. The least we can do is display their masterful works – whether on the store shelves or in your home music library - in plain view so that their memory of these gifted musicians will live on.

Thinking about experimenting and expanding your musical taste?


You want to listen to classical music, but you don't know where to begin?





The Health Benefits of Classical Music

There is no doubt that there are benefits to be found in many different genres of music. It can often seem to help when nothing else is able to change our mood or motivate us. For thousands of years, humans have been intrinsically linked to music in all its forms. It is part of our mourning, our celebrations, and our rituals.

You Can Earn Income From Writing

I am active in various Facebook Groups and Google Plus communities which share blogging and writing tips and tricks, work at home advice, etc.

One question that pops up consistently is:
  • What are the best sites to earn from your writing?


The question would be a lot easier to answer if everybody agreed on one uniform definition for “best”.

My idea of “best” might be another person's idea of “mediocre” because the particular sites that I think are terrific don't really suit the other person's criteria for making money consistently and achieving their financial goals.

So the “best” that I can do is say the best sites that have worked for me.

perfect gift for teacher, students, professor, business man, writer, blogger 


Forum CoinPostloop, and MyLot are social sites and/or forums that have paid me consistently.  The easiest way to earn at these sites is to just be active.  If you are active on social media and earn nothing; then you can be socially active at these sites and get paid for it.

 My HUBs or articles published at HUBPages generate income.  As do my pages and posts at WizzleyWritedge, and Daily Two Cents.  The income is earned mainly via a Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan.  Publish evergreen content at these sites and then let the content generate residual income, while you work on other writing and blogging projects. 

Medium is a site I use mainly to share republished content and redirect traffic to my primary income-earning websites. However, if you are a good writer you might be able to make good money if you sign up for their Medium Partner Program. I have not signed up as yet, but here is what someone else has said about their experience.


Listverse is another writing opportunity: Write & Get Paid $100. Sound too good to be true? It's true! I checked.

However, at this point, Medium and Listverse are on my To Do List.  I need to work up the courage up to submit my work. The competition is overwhelming and I'm terrified of rejection. I just need to get over it!

Anyway! Don't let my fear hold you back! If you've got the confidence and the skills ... Go for it!

Another potential income opportunity that I have yet to embrace is selling articles. I am at SEOClerks (a forum I joined via Postloop) where I see people selling their articles. I haven't tried it, but if they can make money from selling articles, why not me?  This is an income-avenue to be explored in the future.


FINAL POINT:
There are all kinds of writing opportunities out there and newsletters or blogs one can subscribe to for opportunities. I subscribe to Freedom With Writing. Check out this post: 38 Blogs that Pay Writers $50+ for Guest Posts.


Hope you found this post informative.

Most Beautiful Islands: Croatia-Dalmatian Islands (REBLOG)

So very pleased to share this link about the Croatia-Dalmatian Islands. Found the World's Most Beautiful Islands (mostbeautifullisland.blogspot.com) blog a couple of years back. It appears that neither the blog or the Facebook page has been updated since 2012, but no matter as the information provided about the most beautiful islands in the world is enough to whet your appetite and make you hunger and thirst for more. Never been to Dalmatia but one reference to this place in the New Testament and ever since it has been on my wish list of  "Places I'd Like to Go.

When the Apostle Paul* was preparing for his execution in Rome, he sent final instructions and words of encouragement to Timothy, a young man he referred to as his “son in the faith”. He told him what he expected of him and what needed to be done to carry on the missionary efforts. In what is believed to be one of his final letters to the young minister, he made mention of his “other son”, Titus. He said that Titus was on his way to Dalmatia to continue spreading the gospel message. Just that one mention of the place and my heart was captivated. 

(*REF:  Paul and Friends)
  • If you have ever been to Dalmatia, please share some of your experiences?  Provide comments below or let's discuss a guest post.  Thanks!  Thanks!!  Thanks!!

California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

California cuisine?  What's that?  Uh (???) … duh??  Food prepared by California chefs.

Wild guess!



Each bullet point presented below has been explored in much further detail by fellow freelance writer Om Paramapoonya and presented in an article titled:








  • The term “California cuisine” was first used by food critics and magazine editors.
  • California has diverse agriculture and people. Thus, the cuisine reflects the variety of local produce and seafood, and the fusion of ethnic diversities, mainly, Mexicans, Europeans, and Asians/Pacific Islanders.
  • Californians have a health-conscious culture and food artisans, farmers' markets and organic farming are highly respected, valued and appreciated.
  • Signature dishes served in restaurants typically highlight: artichokes, avocado, dry jack cheese, goat cheese, roasted garlic ("stinking rose"), sourdough bread, sun dried tomatoes, and … whatever produce is in season, at the time.
  • California classic dishes – such as Cioppino (a fish stew), Oyster Cocktail, the California roll and California-Style Pizza – each have an interesting history about their origins.


The facts are fun!  Did not the story of how the California-Style Pizza came to be.  Know it now!  :)

California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

"What is California cuisine?" my boyfriend skeptically asked, as I told him I was going to write about it. In spite of having lived in California his whole life, he still wasn't sure how to describe the style of cooking in this region. I guess it's not that strange for many Californians to feel this way.

Since we're on the topic of pizza.  October is National Pizza Month in the USA.  So this post isn't dated October and the celebration is either a little early (too soon in the year) or a little late (missed it last year).   Eh!  I'm sure pizza celebrated all year round in Italy.  You've got two choices.  Pretend it's October OR pretend you're in Italy.  (Of course, if you are in Italy, no need to pretend.)

Women in History : The Story of Santa Lucia

Awesome find resulting from my “one thing leads to another” Internet travels. Searching for HUBs written by fellow freelance writer and blogger, Susan Duffy on HUBPages, and clicked the link on her profile which led me to her website, Senior at Large In a Sicilian Kitchen (published at susanduffy.com).  Her writings are impressive.  And … she’s from  Australia!  Never been there.  It’s on my bucket list.  But have crossed paths online with some really cool people who live there.

Just read an horrific story about a woman who is now honored as Santa Lucia.

Her  remains were finally laid to rest in Siracusa (Syracuse).  “Venice was home to her for so long that the gondoliers’ song “Santa Lucia”, originally from Naples, has become part of that city’s identity.”

10 Hackers Who Drastically Changed the World

#1 is Julian Assange ... #10 is Anonymous


"Yes, literally. While hacking is as amoral as science or mathematics, and therefore couldn't possibly be morally wrong, it is indeed literally wrong. Hacking, in the broadest sense of the word, is to attempt to interact with a system (any system) in a clever, innovative, and challenging way that the system was not intended to be interacted with, or the wrong way."
