Amazing Fact Generator

This website is extremely popular so the information presented in this post may not be news to many of you. But for those who have never heard of it, check out this site called “Mental Floss”.


Better yet, need ideas for something to write about?


Have a go at the tool they refer to as the Amazing Fact Generator.


For example: 
  • FACT! Every film John Cazale appeared in was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.



That's Fact No. 48639



Isn't that cool?



So my only question now is: 
  • Who is John Cazale? (O.o) 

Need to do a little bit of research to find out, but he could be mentioned in my next blog post. Who knows?  :)

Literacy Base Blog Posting Goal Accomplished! (UPDATE Aug 2017)

To quote the wise philosopher, singer/songwriter Nellie Furtado:  

  • "Why do all good things come an end?"


The site Literacy Base has bid farewell.  As of Aug 2017, all links that were supplied below in this post are outdated.  Hopefully, I can find a new home to republish.

Eh!  It happens more often than we would like.  Fun communities and sites bite da dust!



The content below was published Oct 27, 2016.


Accomplished my goal of getting twenty (20) blog posts approved and published at Literacy Base.  This is a blogging community where you can earn residual income not just for blogging but for almost all of your activity.  I'm not kidding!  Even if you just log in to your account, you can earn.


Your activity can consist of participating in groups or forums, updating your profile page, commenting on blog posts, etc.  If you share links via social media and a visitor comes to the site because they clicked on your link-share, you can earn for that!  That means even if you don't want to publish blog posts, and just want to interact and make friends, you can still generate some passive income.


The cash out is $10.  It's a good site if you need some extra cash and also because the folks in the community (including Admin and Support) are very nice.  As of today, there are about 1200 members.  Want to sign up? Click here.  It's free to join!






Below is the list of my posts.  Gives you an idea of some of the things you can blog about.  Of course, if you have a specific expertise or passion, that's even better!

Asian-Pacific American Blogs | Grace Hwang Lynch

Celebrating Asian / Pacific - American Heritage Month (and the widespread Asian influence).

Celebrating Asian-American Contemporary Artists

Giana Nguyen-Foster is a Vietnamese-American singer/songwriter. We connected via Facebook back in 2011, the same year her debut solo EP, "For Now ", had been released. At that time she was promoting herself by collaborating with other musicians, and performing at shows in the Southern California area.


The Legend Bruce Lee (Nov 27, 1940 - July 20, 1973)

God bless the Internet and especially social networks, bloggers, and online writing communities. So there's this really cool guy - Nathan Bernardo, aka NateB11 - and he is a loyal and devoted martial arts disciple. He knows a lot about MA and writes articles on the topic.


Will The Tiger's Apprentice Ever Be an Animated Film?

Laurence Yep writes books for children and young adults. Many know him for book series calledGolden Mountain Chronicles . Screenwriter David Magee (Finding Neverland (watch trailer) ) was or is (??) adapting Yep's book - The Tiger's Apprentice (Book One) - into a feature film in 3D animation.


Good Fortune: Okyo's Cranes Now on View | Unframed (Reblog)

" ... Maruyama Okyo (1733-95), a painter who revolutionized the practice and taught or influenced generations of Japanese painters." (NOTE: At the time of the posting the paintings were on exhibit; not at the time of this reblogging.) The Okyo artwork motivated me to search for more pictures, photos, and illustrations of cranes.


My Five (5) Good Fortunes

We can all write our fortunes. In my case my daughter wrote 5 good fortunes for me. Her predictions for my future are greatly appreciated and if her advice is heeded no reason why they won't come true. :) Next time you have a party, consider giving out homemade fortune cookies.

Experimenting with Blogspot

Gave my blog a little “cosmetic surgery”. This is what happens when you are in “self-teach learn as you go” mode.


Use a do-it-yourself tool or application for years and then one day you have an “Ah hah” moment because you finally figure out what the “button” is for!


Usually my attention is devoted to my Tumblr blog, but decided that there was something not quite right with the look of my Blogger ( Blogspot ) blog. 



Hmmm … ? What can I do that I haven't done before? Have you ever changed the fonts for the blog post titles and dates or added highlights? It's a simple thing but for me it was a revelation!


Well I didn't want to get overly ambitious since it was my first time but clicked on the “Customize” button for the template dared myself.


Clicked on “Advanced” and boldly went where I have never gone before!


Changed the font for my post title so that it could stand out more and increased the font size for the dates and even highlighted it in blue. That was it! Didn't dare go any further for fear things might get screwed up. Very pleased with my blogging adventure!

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.



Great Weetend To All

Blogjob.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted?

Don't know if you will trust my judgment on this but my first impression of Blogjob.com is: “Oh yeah! I can work like this!”

Blog Cloud clip art



Some of the features that make me want to use this site:
  • Free blogging platform (uses Wordpress)
  • Reward and Points system (earn rewards or points then redeem for cash or other) ~ Cash incentives program discontinued.
  • Google Ads allowed (revenue-sharing 25%; 1 out of 4 times your ads show, and three times, ads belonging to the site owners show.  It's fair!  They bear the expense of maintaining the site.)
  • Affiliate referrals and advertisements allowed.  No revenue share.  What you earn from affiliate marketing is 100% yours.
  • Zemanta plugin works (can pull in related content from around the web)*
  • Learn a lot of tips and tricks via forum discussions
  • Nice management or staff support and nice community of members


* Zemanta TIP:  When you selected Related Articles to share, check the link and make sure the post still exists.  Sometimes the database does not update and posts that appear with thumbnails, are no longer pubished.  Important blogging tip!  Posts you share should enhance your content and not contaminate it with links to nowhere!



Have only been there for about a month, but the experience has been positive.  The blog I created at this site is called:  Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging.  (Hope you subscribe.)
