Medicinal Mushrooms by Clara Myers – Writedge.com

Clara Myers is a friend and fellow freelance writer/blogger. She publishes the “Alternative Health” column for Writedge.com. Sharing this link because the information she supplies is always helpful and healthful.  But honestly, enjoying mushrooms has never been a problem for me! :)




“Research has demonstrated the mushroom’s possible usefulness for HIV, bronchitis, allergies, cancer, inflammation, liver, and protection against radiation.”

Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms have been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for millennia, but in the West we have only studied them for the last 30 years or so. Even in this short period of time, medicines have been patented that come directly from mushroom research.

The successes and the failures. Stop by if you get a chance. And thanks for encouraging me.  (You can also visit my foodie blog.) Your kindness is immeasurable.

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.

Heed Dr. Dobson's Advice on Parenting

Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist who specializes in advice on parenting.


Focus on the Family, his non-profit ministry provide counseling and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters; and he has also authored several books on these topics.

Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist and the founder of Focus on the Family, a non-profit ministry that supplies advice and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters. He describes two types of children: the compliant child - an obedient child that heeds good advice and follows a path to peace; versus the defiant child - who is the exact opposite. He says most children are "in between" those two extremes.


English: James Dobson.English: James Dobson. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Having given birth to eleven children - all living - all raised except for one - I can state unequivocally that Dr. Dobson is correct. Most children are between the two extremes. However, if you happen to get one that is wholly defiant - my advice is ... PRAY!! Pray you survive them until they reach the age of eighteen and then ... send them on their way!


You see children must realize that one day if they live, they will be the same age as mommy and daddy. If they have children of their own, mommy and daddy will no longer have to explain why the "rules" were so flipping ludicrous!! There are many who claim to have programs that work if you happen to be raising a difficult and trying child. Some of them will even offer you their programs free of charge. Quite frankly, everybody has to wade through those muddy murky waters on their own. What may work for your family could cause chaos and mayhem in another person's home. So tread very cautiously.


I can tell you that as a young parent, reading the Dobson books was extremely helpful. Many who might not be of the Christian persuasion probably steer clear of his writings. But the advice he offers is very generic and can be applied regardless of one's religious beliefs or nationality or ethnicity.


As I stated earlier, my babies are all full grown now, with only one remaining. In five more years, she'll be stepping out on her own. Five years? That's half a blink of eye. Really it is. My oldest child has already passed the over the hill mark. Back in my day, "over the hill" used to be age 30. It seems like it was just yesterday when we were teaching him how to walk. Though the memories are sweet, of a truth, my husband and I look forward to the "empty nest years" with great anticipation.


But getting to my point: If you are a new parent, and mommy and daddy are no available for you to ask them about the "rules", pick up a book by Dr. Dobson. No doubt you can find one or more at your local library or even a church library. If not, his books are available for purchase online.

Aesop: unclear biography, unwritten fables, timeless morals

This post shares a link from fellow freelance writer Tolovaj – a magical writer who hails from Ljubljana, Slovenia.  Tolovaj doesn’t just publish written material.

"Tolovaj publishes masterpieces!
You can quote me on that.  đź’“


When you visit the articles, you become instantly mesmerized.  The information is fascinating reading, but the layout and presentation of the images that complement the content is absolutely exquisite! This particular link is to a mini-bio of the famous fabulist, whom we all know as Aesop, but whom we also don’t know very much about.  (???)  To put it in Tolovaj’s words:  "… his fables are much more clear than his biography."

Aesop: unclear biography, no written fables, with timeless morals

http://wizzley.com/aesop/?pr=4530


After reading the article I was moved to remark that if Aesop’s fables are an indication of his character,  he would definitely have been included in my circle of friends. :)
 


Wizzley.com graciously allows me to publish articles at their site.  Take a quick glance at the information on the sidebar.  This is a wonderful online writing community, based in Germany, that welcomes experienced and newbie writers to express their passion! There is no fee. FREE to sign up and you can start immediately.

Residual Income Opportunity - Write for Harlow-McGaw Media

Dec 2017 Update:  The content below the asterisk marks was originally published October 13, 2014. The ladies who owned the site invited me to be a contributor. Since that time they have established several writing sites under the umbrella of Harlow-McGaw Media. There are various writing opportunities. I still have a writer's profile at Daily Two Cents and Writedge but I do not contribute as much as I used to when these sites first began. Other writing work came my way during the year and the projects keep me busy. However, most of my content was evergreen so it is still as relevant in 2017 as it was in previous years. If you are interested in signing up for any of the HM sites, read the post for additional details.

    When charting the course of history or human events, communication is critical.

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.

18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018 | Entrepreneur.com (Reblog)

I am always desperately seeking ways and means to hone my Internet, affiliate and content marketing skills. I try all the tools and resources offered (as long as they are free with an option to upgrade later). I sift through all the advice, tips and tricks from the “experts”. One thing that I have noticed and it's a story that has not changed over the years (Eh!  for about 4 or 5 years). 

It's a prediction about the future of Twitter.

Extracted this quote from an article by Entrepreneur.com titled "18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018".
11. Twitter dies a quiet death.
Twitter has been unable to grow users in 2017. The platform has focused on user acquisition rather than on making improvements to their ad platform. As a result, marketers are already using other social media platforms to connect with prospects. This trend will continue in 2018 as Twitter continues to struggle.

I don't know about other Twitter users but this saddens me. Nevertheless, I keep trying to prepare myself for the "Moment" when I will no longer be able to save or view any more Moments.  If this prediction is true, all I can say is:  
"Dear Twitter,
I am glad that I won't be a student attending university pursuing a business or marketing degree, because your organization will likely be a case study.
You will be remembered affectionately by me."
