Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland : The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire (Reblog)

Well I know that I'm supposed to be tooting my own horn but why can't I toot about blogs I like as well? It's just as much fun reading other people's blogs as it is publishing my own. Re-blogging a link from a super cool entertainment blog that caught my eye.


The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire: [Irish Week] Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland



Why do I like this blog? It shares entertainment-related tidbits, fun facts, etc. that are of interest to me. I like the post categories; especially “Who Wore It Best?”   

(Loved that contrast photo of Lupita and Beyoncé.  Shared it via my Tumblr.)



I enjoy the “Movie Reviews” category because there are reviews of vintage movies. The publisher uses the word “vintage”. But sometimes we say “movie classics” or “old movies”. 

(I love all things vintage, so I'm happy with the blogger using this descriptive term in lieu of “classic” or “old”.   Shared the review of "Father Goose" via Pinterest where I collect "Everything Vintage". )

Additionally, there are recommendations regarding foreign films (i.e. non-American) and I'm always on the hunt for non-American movies or TV series.


🎬 Movie Review: Your Name. (君の名は。) Your Name. (君の名は。) is a Japanese animated movie, premiered in 2016 and has been written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, who also wrote the novel this anime movie is based on. Fun fact : this movie hit the theatres last year in July in the USA and in August in Japan and managed to become the highest -grossing anime movie, over comin Academy Award winning "Spirited Away".

Medium was launched in 2012 by two of the founders of Twitter.

Started republishing my previously published articles and blog posts at Medium about 3 years ago.  Both sites Medium and Niume) are respected and enjoy a good online reputation.  It is a good way to make your work more visible to the search engines and build your online reputation.



What I like about Medium is that the republishing process is simplified.  You simply import your content, do a bit of editing and hit the publish button.  You can introduce your content to a new audience and connect your social media accounts for simplified sharing as well


"If you're not publishing on Medium, you're missing out on a huge potential audience for very little extra work."

Niume is based in the UK, was founded in 2012, and launched as an open platform in July 2014.

Initiated my republishing efforts at Niume in 2017. My work efforts at this site were mentioned briefly in another post - Work at Home ~ Home Biz Projects : Another Weekend! - UPDATE #1.  But that was in February 2017.  Here it is just two months later (April) and not only is my previously published content considered acceptable for publication but they have also allowed me to publish some original content.  In addition, several of my posts have been featured; what they refer to as "Staff Picked".  This goes far beyond what I expected.  Below is a quick list of my content chosen to be featured by the moderators at Niume.

Work at Home ~ Home Biz Projects : Another Weekend! - UPDATE #1

This time last year, it was another weekend and in this post - WAH! On Top of WAH! Another Weekend! - I provided a status report on my various work at home projects. At that point, I had created several potential residual income streams ( or at least I thought I had). 😉  Quote from the previous post:

"Tsū , myLot , my blogs at - Tumblr, BlogJob and Blogger (or Blogspot ), and online writing communities like  DailyTwoCents , HUBPages , Wizzley, etc."

♦ ♦ ♦  UPDATES:

  • Tsū went belly up!  I'm a tad bit upset because I had written reviews of some movies and TV shows.  Plan to republish the content elsewhere.  Already republished one of the posts at.  Check it out!  Review:  Mary Kom (2014) ~ Fans of Priyanka Chopra.

  • myLot is working out and has actually paid me several times.  This is my most recent discussion.  You don't earn based on starting discussions.  You get paid for interacting with members.  But sometimes to do that you have to start a conversation.

But Suppose We're Not GREAT Again? / myLot


But Suppose We're Not GREAT Again? / myLot

So what happens if Mr. T doesn't make good on his promise to make America great again? (Scoff!) First of all, how dare you even entertain such a thought? But! ... Since you're thinking on it ... (Sigh.) We make plans. We break promises. In this life, one should always have Plan A and Plan B.

  • My blogs at - Tumblr?  Long story short.  My account got deleted.  The old blogs were sent to the Tumblr graveyard.  The company is being acquired by a new owner.  The management and staff is experimenting with placing ads in the blogs, intending to keep the platform free for the users.  Meanwhile, I created two new Tumblr blogs at the end of 2016.  FoxNet2017 and FoodWays2017.  Why?  Because they let me do it!  Plus!  Tumblr is a neat blogging/micro-blogging platform and you are allowed to place affiliate ads to monetize your blog.  Just check their "Help" in the dashboard for more details.  Why wouldn't I want to try again?

  • BlogJob stopped their Points Program but I was undaunted.  Not only did I keep my blog - My Pain, Your Gain - up and running; but I started a new blog for affiliate marketing purposes:  My Shopping Channel.  The site owners are OK with members using affiliate referral links.  Currently the site owners are experimenting with Google Ads, in the hopes of generating more revenue.  Hope these experiments are successful.  The platform is good to use but whereas, it used to be a social community where you could sign in and not only go about your blogging business but interact and chat with fellow bloggers, the "socializing" aspect went Bye Bye when the Points Program ended.


  • Blogger (or Blogspot)?  In addition to this blog, at the end of 2016, I set up a foodie blog called Food Ways Presented by Everyday Exotic Spices.  A friend of mine and fellow food blogger visited and gave me lots of advice, tips and feedback on how to make the blog look more visually appealing.  It looks pretty to me!  Also, I am able to use Amazon Native Ads on Blogspot blogs.  No surprise.  If you can remember way back, the Blogspot platform used to have a feature that allowed the blogger to incorporate relevant links to Amazon products.

As for the online writing communities?  My aim was to publish evergreen content (content that is relevant and not restricted to a specific period of time) so that I could set it, forget it, and appreciate whatever residual income is generated by the pages.  I revisit from time to time to check for broken links and update any info that may have changed.  Here are links to my writer profile at the various sites:  Daily Two Cents; Writedge; HUBPages; Wizzley; and Webnuggetz.  Most of my revenue is earned via the Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan.  Commissions are also being earned from sales of affiliate products.  ("Slow but steady wins the race."  😀) 

During the year (2016), signed up at two new sites.  One is a blogging community:  Literacy Base.  This site is good because you earn for blogging, for commenting at blogs, for participating in groups and forums, for updating your profile timeline.  You even earn for just logging in to your account.  Have received payment.  This is my most recent post:



The other site, Niume, is a collaborative blogging platform created to help you promote your blog.  In other words, republished content from your blog is accepted.  It's also a good place to share your original content.  Examples:
You can not use affiliate links and your earn revenue for referrals and for views.  Learn more:  How Does Niume Revenue Work.

  • My referral link if you sign up through me:  Join Niume! Where it says "Create a Post", click on it and the sign up form will pop up.  You must use a valid eMail address.

Closing off this update with another reminder from another previous post.  Remember that Pinterest can also be used as a blogging/micro-blogging platform and affiliate links are allowed.



If you want to earn extra income, hope you find this information useful.

Niume Promises to Help You Promote Your Blog (UPDATE #1) STRIKETHROUGH

Strikethrough everything. The site closed its doors October 2, 2017.

UPDATE January 30th, 2017 ~ I confess that I had not expected to share an update to my previous post (link below) so quickly. However, a lot has happened within less than 30 days that must be shared in order to present a true picture of this wonderful blogging platform and community.



Finally got brave enough to dive in and start posting via Niume.

Want my advice? Jump in! 


The water is delightful and warm. You can use it to promote your blog. Many members do use it for that. But it's a great community for making friends and socializing and you can also use it as your blog. There are so many ways to take advantage of this wonderful platform. To date, my profile shows 7 short posts (See quick list below). Will write more as soon as I get more organized. But these are doing just fine. I'm loving the fact that people are actually leaving comments. There is nothing so discouraging as spending your time and effort publishing blog posts or articles and then nobody visits to read them!





Niume is a social blogging platform, created to help bloggers promote their blogs, writers, promote their content, artists and photographers share their work, and more!  You can earn residual income for your activity.

Niume Promises to Help You Promote Your Blog

Post UPDATED January 30th, 2017: UPDATE #1

Niume is a collaborative blogging platform, established in 2014 with the goal of assisting bloggers with blog promotion and monetization efforts.


 


Have you heard about the newest kid on the block in the wonderful of social blogging communities? (The site was started in 2014 and a site that's 2 years old is still practically brand spanking new! 👶)  According to ZDNet, Niume, a new collaborative blogging platform “is taking the web by storm”. The goal of this platform is to help bloggers successfully promote and monetize their blog VERSUS struggling to maintain a stand alone blog which will likely drown in the ocean of over 250 million other blogs that are out there, along with you, trying to swim to the top and stay afloat.

Niume is a content syndication site and the owners actually pay you to syndicate your blog posts at their site. (Read more: mostblogging.com)  


Real Wire describes this site as “All the pleasure of blogging but with instant reach”.


Do I have an opinion?  
But of course!  Published it via Quora.
