The content shared below is one of my posts contributed to the community.


I have several boards (over 50) and I've been trying to arrange them. I just tried a Pinterest feature that lets you arrange your boards: Alphabetical, Newest to Oldest, Oldest to Newest OR you can manually Drag and Drop your boards wherever! I may rearrange them again but for now, I think putting them in alpha order is best for visitors. I can see the boards in alpha order. What I want to know is:

Q1: How does a visitor to my Pinterest profile see them? Can you look at my Pinterest boards and tell me if you see them arranged in alphabetical order?

Q2: Is that feature available to allow a visitor to rearrange my boards the way they would like to see them? From New to Old, in Alpha Order, etc.

30 Incorrectly Used Words That Can Make You Look Bad | Inc.com

Interesting list.  Most of those words I never had a problem with except for "affect" and "effect".  I can't stand those two words.  They affect my mood, make me angry and have a bad effect on me!

Did I use them correctly? 

You see what I mean?  :)

Social Media Marketing Advice : Use Twitter to Share Affiliate Referral Links

Social networks may have originally been intended for socializing, but if you are a business or a self-employed individual with an online presence ~ you must know the importance of using social media for your business efforts. 

Anybody who tweets for business and income purposes knows that Twitter is an important tool to have in their social media marketing kit; especially if you are an affiliate marketer. Twitter allows account holders to tweet affiliate referral links. But did you know that according to Clickbank “99% of the affiliate marketers on Twitter have zero idea how to market correctly”

I humbly confess to being among the 99%. But I happily admit to not being guilty of using the methods described in the CB article. Whew! My ignorance did not go that far.






My first Twitter account (@cmoneyspinner) was created April 2012. It was not used for affiliate advertising even though I had become an authorized affiliate for several vendors. Why? I didn't know how. (O.o)  Years passed and as I learned more about how to use Twitter, I learned that "Twitter users are big online buyers" AND multiple Twitter accounts are allowed

Following the advice of SMM experts, I created a few niche accounts and began using those accounts for affiliate marketing purposes. My niche accounts were created to advertise/market affiliate products for:


How do I use Twitter for affiliate marketing purposes?


Two methods: indirect and direct.


INDIRECT: I create webpages suggesting affiliate products at sites like Wizzley and Webnuggetz; and publish my own websites / blogs : Everyday Exotic Spices, Insurance Mart and Insurance Smart, My Shopping Channel, and Go Shopping Bees. Then I tweet the post links.


DIRECT: Since affiliate links are allowed, using RSS feeds for affiliate products provided by the vendor and automation tools like dlvr.it and Google Feedburner, tweets are posted to the various accounts. Also, I manually compose specific tweets. Tweets can be created manually either as text; text with photo, video or GIF; or as a poll.


Using both of these methods keeps my tweet stream flowing.


Below is the first tweet ever composed using Twitter's POLL CREATION feature for affiliate marketing purposes.


Twitter is one tool in my social media marketing kit that has proven to be invaluable.

Work at Home Advice, Tips and Tricks

The "cottage industry" (like Etsypreneurs) is not a creation of the 20th or 21st centuries nor did "home-based businesses" come about because of the invention of the Internet. While most of my work at home initiatives are focused mainly on writing and blogging, and affiliate marketing, there are many profitable projects people can do, working from their home. Home-based businesses or working from home was and still is very common.

Online Writing Communities : HUBPages Earnings Can Be Inherited

A while back I read a complaint that someone had passed away but that the site was still earning income from the deceased writer's articles.

First of all, though that may sound not quite “kosher”, there's actually nothing wrong or illegal with doing that. If the writer did not make any provisions for the account to be transferred to a “beneficiary” then earnings go to the site owners. Who else?

Today, however, I found this detailed information that made it plain what the site's policy and procedures are. If you happen to be a HUBPages Contributor, “Your HUBPages Income Can Be Inherited”.  This is not "my story".  It is the journey of another HP Contributor, Amy (Happymommy2520).  If you're interested in my journey, see the links below.


Appreciate the clarification. Good to know and good to know what to do with my HUBs. The content is evergreen and my HUBs do earn income, slowly but surely. There's no need to delete them after I'm gone.  No doubt the residual income would be welcomed.

Can Gandhi find a place in today's Corporate and Management world? | Anas Ebrahem (Reblog)

Gandhian methods, characteristics, ideas, and ideals? Rituals of visionary leaders? Gandhi was a lawyer so finding a place in today’s Corporate and Management world would likely not be difficult for him to do. But his visionary methods of leadership would probably also get him kicked out of that same world! :) 

Sharing this excellent post by Anas Ebrahem.

Can Gandhi find a place in today's Corporate and Management world?

To worsen the state of their minds, a question of...

The Year of the Publisher: 5 Ways to Monetize Your Content – Infolinks (Reblog)

Article sites “challenges” which likely impacted your content marketing strategy, beginning its list with ad blockers and then posing the question: How can these be overcome?

Most popular methods will be:

  • since more people search on their mobiles there is a trend towards responsive ads; 
  • eMail marketing is being enhanced; 
  • using brand journalism and affiliate marketing with the aim of giving the client or customers an extra value-add and turning traffic into shopping.

The most encouraging statement was made at the conclusion of the article, i.e. “the good news are that it’s not impossible to do.”

4 Things Women in Business are Told (that Men aren't) | Project Eve

Worked a 9 to 5 job for several years in the corporate workplace and don't remember being told this, Also don't remember being doggedly pursued to be offered a management position. If you're going to be an executive perhaps that's when this type of advice is volunteered. Volunteered? Yes. The "4 Things" don't seem like advice that any working woman would actually ask for. If these tips were offered to me, my responses would be:


  • To Thing #1: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #2: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #3: You're telling me that? WHY?
  • To Thing #4: Uuuhhh ... WHY?

4 Things Women in Business are Told (that Men aren't)

The glass ceiling is still very much in place, there's still not equal pay, and women aren't sure if they should lean in or lean out. As a woman moving up the ranks in a business, starting her own company, or treading into executive territory, they're told some things that men never hear.

Blogjob.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted? (Post Update #2)

Two years today I joined a blogging community called BlogJob and shared my first impression in this post:

A year later I published my revised first impression in this post:
Ah well! It's been a year and it's time to revise my revision of my first impression AGAIN!

Hey! My first impression was right and I'm sticking to it! Sure the site owners made changes. But they haven't SHUT DOWN!  They get an A+++ in my book just for hanging in there! They also get my sincerest thanks because they didn't delete my blog or ask me politely to move on. That is extremely gracious of them. Don't you think so?  Currently publishing two blogs via their platform (My Pain, Your Gain and My Shopping Channel) (post feed below); still being allowed to participate in the Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan; and also being allowed to use affiliate referral links and keep 100% of the earned commissions.  Also, ever once in a while, they let me share my opinion.

Work-at-Home Lifestyle Blog | Express Yourself! on Tumblr is Now FoxNet2017

Out with the old. In with the new. "So you're trying hard. Well, try again." ~ Curtis Mayfield

Sometimes where not sharing dispensable thoughts here, I'm at my other blog on Tumblr expressing myself.  If you ever have time to visit, you're welcome there, just like you're welcome here.

UPDATE Sep 2017:
During 2016 my Tumblr account was deleted.  They got their rules.  Follow them or leave! By the end of the year, a new Tumblr blog was set up.  They only deleted my blog.  They didn't banish me!  Evidently, I didn't commit an unforgivable sin, so they let me create another account.  Frankly, I find the Tumblr Staff folks to be very reasonable.  They always answer my messages.  That's very professional and courteous, considering I got a free account.  Wonder how they treat their paying customers.

My new Tumblr blog is called FoxNet2017.

Much like the other blog it can be considered a lifestyle blog or placed under a general category or niche like "Society and Culture" because it shares whatever happens (current events) or has happened (history) in our world.
