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, ...

Entertainment: Movie Review: "The Preacher's Wife" (1996)

In the mood for a movie that is charming, silly and sweet?  Well this film is perfect!  The Preacher's Wife ” is a movie which starred the late Whitney Houston (1963 - 2012) and Denzel Washington.  It's a delightful remake of the 1947 classic which starred Cary Grant and Loretta Young, "The Bishop's Wife".




Yeah! I know. No angel Dudley mentioned in the Bible.


Come to think of it? No angel mentioned anywhere except for this movie!


Ms. Houston's character is married to a preacher. Hence the film's title. Her marital relationship could use some "outside" or even "heavenly" intervention if it is to be saved.





The Preacher's Wife

The movie was OK. Not worth an academy award nomination. But the soundtrack makes it worth watching. Especially this particular song: Step by Step .  


“Step by step. … bit by bit … stone by stone … brick by brick … Don't give up! …”

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.

My Quora 2017 Activity Highlights

Received a wonderful eMail communication thanking me and congratulating me. It was a pleasant surprise. Text of the eMail message from Quora is below.


I reviewed some additional stats and realized that I have been a quora member since 2013.  Someone was nice enough to invite me to join and I can't even remember who!  This is a nice site.  People ask interesting questions, engage each other in intelligent discussion, supply great responses and information, and it has a free blogging platform.  Some insist that Quora can be used to drive traffic to their main websites and blogs.  (See links below.)  I have never used it for that purpose.  For me, it's a research tool and also makes for enlightening reading on a wide range of topics.





Thanks for being a part of Quora in 2017! Let's look at some of the ways you helped share and grow the world's knowledge this past year.

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.

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.

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 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.
