Will There Be a World War 3? Let's Discuss.

Ever since mankind realized that they were supposed to be counting wars ... people are on the edge because they are rightfully concerned about the possibility and regularly ask this question:

Will there be a World War 3?




There are lively discussions going in many online communities.  I donated my "two cents" to a discussion in a forum.  This is what I said:

* * *
"NOSTRADAMUS predictions for 2018 have foretold one of the worst years in global history with a string of natural disasters, the fall of the economy, and the start of World War 3."
Nostradamus 2018 predictions: World War 3 and disaster BUT survivors could live to 200
Eh! I never believed anything attributed to Nostradamus. Frankly I don't think there will be a 3rd world war because, although the countries possess nuclear weapons, nobody in their right mind really wants to use them. In a nuclear-to-nuclear showdown there are NO WINNERS. The fallout from the use of nuclear weapons is unimaginable. The earth - the land, the oceans and the sky - will be ruined FOR EVERYBODY!!
North Korea warns of nuclear showdown, ...

* * *

Agree or Disagree?

There are many lively discussions and conversations taking place.  Did I mention that you can also earn for contributing your social comments?  It's a social site that pays you to socialize.  Earn money writing short posts, even quips!  Pretty much you donate your two cents and get one cent back.  An easy way to earn some pocket change.  You can get paid in currency or ask for an Amazon gift card.  Hey!  Who doesn't want a little extra money for the holidays, for gift shopping, for daily living expenses, etc.?  The forum community is global and welcomes members from everywhere, not just the USA.

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.

How to Make Money from Virily and 6 More Revenue Sharing Sites (Reblog)

Janice Wald is an award-winning blogger and her areas of expertise are blogging and social media. I follow her blog and I follow her on social media. She is very active on social media and all around the web, and when I see her name, I have to peek! She's simply irresistible. ☺

Her blog, mostlyblogging.com, is loaded with guidance, advice, tips, and tricks, etc.  Everything you need for successful blogging. While perusing the Quora Q&A website, I came across her response to a question - "Do You Blog Outside Quora?" - and that led me to the blog post below. (Treasure hunting is always good when you actually find treasure!)  

I was very interested in reading her review of Virily.com, as I joined this blogging community in June 2017.  It's 2018.  I'm still there.  But I was just wondering if she knew something about the site that I didn't know!  So many sites like Virily have come and gone in the blink of an eye!

Happy to say that her blog post was very encouraging.  Sharing the link to her post and for what it's worth, my additional "two cents" (below the post link).  I think this site is a wonderful social blogging community and I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to newbie bloggers.  If you're thinking of becoming a blogger and you need to start somewhere to gain experience, start with VirilySign up is FREE!







My “Two Cents” About Virily (and the other writing sites):

I am currently a very satisfied blogger in the Virily community. Member since June 2017. I was very hesitant to join. Got talked into joining so many communities just like Virily, only to be disappointed. But Virily has been a pleasant surprise. 

But now I'm like: “Uummm? Should I stay or should I go?” (O.o) LOL. I've been psychologically conditioned by the other sites to expect the site to disappear! But you know what? Right now. It's kind of fun! And it is proving to be profitable.

I think sites built using the revenue-sharing business model, i.e. that primarily rely on ad revenues to stay afloat, can survive. Two things are needed. Honest staff and loyal members. Both are absolutely necessary. Sad to say but my experience with other sites has been that the staff or management was not straight up! The members certainly didn't want the site to shut down!  That was evident!  

By contrast, I have found the Virily site owners, staff and management, to be very involved with the daily administration of the site; they respond to their messages promptly; they keep members apprised of significant changes, and they're based in Estonia. ☺  I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but if the folks from Estonia are as nice as these people, that country is now on my Travel and Vaction bucket list. ☺ 

Regards the other sites mentioned, in addition to Virly?

  • Hubpages was recently acquired and is under new management. My HUBs are articles that are evergreen content and though the earning is slow, I do get paid
  • Tried InfoBarrel and Snipsly. Had no success. Do not make your decision based on my experience.
  • Started with Daily Two Cents when they started and have experienced the changes with this platform. I would recommend joining, although some of my friends did not like it. To each his own.  My experience has been good. 
  • Seekyt was great but when the site changed owners, I deleted my content and left. Wish them success though.  The site looks lovely.

Virily's publishing module is not just for blogging.  You can create quizzes, polls, lists; shared embedded content and videos, as well as write.  It is a very lively social community.  It's like Facebook, only you can earn extra income for most of your social activity.  Just check their FAQ for details.  Below are links to some of my posts, supplied as examples to give you an idea of content that is considered acceptable.

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?

  • 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.”

Use Your Browser to Generate Cash with Qmee Extension

Install Qmee Extension Browser and Earn Rewards
That's what they say!

Many people are installing extensions on their Chrome browser that have a “promise of earnings”. Some of the extensions that I have tried just don't suit my daily online working habits. In other words, the way the extension works interferes with how I do my work. Some of the extensions have a lot of pop-ups.

I installed Qmee Extension on my Chrome browser. Added it because it says you can earn from “searching”. I have to search to do my home biz work anyway, Why not?


Once it was installed a follow-up eMail was received describing the product further.  The communication said that you earn rewards for shopping and searching online and earn cash for each survey that you successfully complete.

This extension does not really interfere with my daily online search activity. So far I am very happy with it. My account shows a whopping 8 cents! 💲

Clearly reaping the rewards for my online searches as I have not done any shopping or taken any surveys. 

The owners also claim many users earn hundreds a year just by completing surveys.

I'm passing this information on because I know there are people who like to take surveys. Quite frankly, I never have much success with surveys.  However, maybe I'll try a survey via Qmee and see if I have any success.

The real plus for using this extension:
Cash out your rewards whenever via PayPal as there is no minimum cash out amount.  It's kind of like having a piggy bank or having a cash stash for a rainy day.


What do you think? 
Sound like something of interest to you? There are people making money using all kinds of apps on their mobile devices. But there are some old fogies like me who still use a laptop and some even “older fogies” that use a desktop. Why can't we earn for surfing the Internet or shopping or sharing our opinions?

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.

Social Sites That Pay : ForumCoin and Postloop

Followed the advice of a friend and signed up at a site called ForumCoin.com. This is a site where newbies and beginners trying to publish blogs can get advice and tips on affiliate marketing and blog monetization, suggestions on sites where they can make money online, etc. Members can even play games, share music, and just chit chat. You can create an income stream by being an active member of this site because for all of your various social activities you can earn money.


At ForumCoin, I found a discussion thread about a site called Postloop. You sign up free, follow the instructions carefully to open the portal and from there you proceed to qualify so that you can gain access to more blogs and forums where you can earn money for publishing posts and/or making comments at posts. You sort of have to pass a “test” first. The Postloop owners are looking for people with fairly good writing skills who can publish posts and/or provide comments that contribute to ongoing discussions in the forums or at the blogs. You don't earn money to get qualified. But once you are approved (or qualified), you will receive an eMail with a link that directs you to other forums and blogs you can sign up for that do pay you for your contributions.



When I received my eMail, I subscribed to two forums. Now I can invite others to join those forums. You don't have to go through Postloop. You can use my referral link (below). However, if you do use my link, then you will only have access to the forum you chose to sign up for. Whereas, if you go through the Postloop qualification process, you can have access not only to the forums I joined but you can view the complete list of forums and blogs and pick one or more. You may not want to join the forums I joined. There may be other topics that interest you. These two forums were of interest to me. One forum I joined to learn more about SEO. The other forum I joined because they have a wide range of general topics for you to provide your comments.  Do you already read blogs you like and leave comments?  This is the same thing only you can earn money for making a comment.

My Sign Up Referral Link for Postloop:

Once you are approved or qualified via Postloop, you can then subscribe to the forums like the ones mentioned in this post and start earning.  As stated earlier, you can publish posts and/or make comments at these forums. Most of the time I comment; especially at the SEOClerks forum since I am not really an expert webmaster. But just to give you an idea, at the end of this blog post is a list of some of my published posts at SuperiorThan that the owners approved.  Some are Versus.  Some are Debates or Discussions.  Just click on the appropriate tabs.


This was a brief introduction to my experience with social sites that pay; legitimate websites where you can make money online.  There are more sites out there (also mentioned at ForumCoin).  But these are the sites where I have found my experience to productive and profitable.  Hope this helps you.  Let me know if you have any questions about anything I've written.

Freelance Writing Opportunities : WWW : Wizzley Welcomes Writers

Online writing communities are mushrooming all over the worldwide web. The majority of them are free to sign up, have a revenue-sharing plan, allow you to work at your own pace and you can write on any number of topics. Some are pay-per-view. Some are pay-per-click. Some are based on actual product sales. Usually, the only stringent criteria is a certain number of words required to publish a post. The main thing is they are legitimate work-at-home opportunities.
 

Wizzley Welcomes Writers
Newbie or Experienced 
Join Today!  



This blog entry discusses one of those communities, Wizzley.com, which is based in Germany. Since the Internet is worldwide, where a company's headquarters is located is irrelevant. This post is the beginning of a series of posts which will showcase these different sites and my own experience.  Wizzley.com is not the first site that I published for, but it is one of the current websites where my articles are still live for public viewing.
 
My first article was published May 2013, so next month will be my first anniversary. To date there are 34 “Wizzles” to my credit. The site owners and the writers in the community are supportive. The publishing platform is easy to use and their revenue-sharing plan is reasonable and money can be earned via VigLink, Amazon, AllPosters, Zazzle, Google Adsense or Chitika. Text referral links from other affiliate advertisers like ShareASale or Commission Junction are also allowed. Those are the highlights.

Some of my fellow bloggers have a passion to write about their wanderlust.  Reblogging this list provided by Erica Verrillo, publisher of Publishing ... and Other Forms of Insanity.


Idea? 💡 

  • Perhaps you can turn some of your memorable travel photographs into works of art and resell them as art. It's a thought.





If you are not a travel writer, do not despair.  Here are links to other income earning writing opportunities.  Perhaps there is one for you (and me).
