Pinterest  to be Linked to Glenn’s Way blog

I plan to upgrade my Pinterest  social media account to include some of my gardening ideas and other interests that I have. There are ways to more completely link Pinterest  to my blog. Some day I plan to sell succulent plants along with crafted bottle planters and display them on my social media accounts. Definitely not a get rich quick scheme but I enjoy doing it and I might make a few pesos. First I need my dependents to become more self sufficient so I have a little time to implement my plan. Second I plan to have the giant lump on my back surgically removed before I get to old to be operated on. Every time I schedule this surgical procedure something interferes with it. Maybe I am just destined to keep my grapefruit sized back bulge.

I see succulent plants, herbs and sophisticated bottle planters for my future provided God is willing. I like gardening but currently I just don’t have the time to do anything good because I am usually too ill or taking care of other people/problems. I definitely need to spruce up our yard before I try to pass myself off as a gardener or no one will buy. We have a nice alcove type window for indoor plants which might be a future option. Unfortunately gigantic trees shade the windows so some supplemental light will be needed. Also, my wife is opposed to any type of plants in the house because she is worried about insects and allergies. Hopefully I can convert her to indoor succulent plants because they seem to be a cleaner type of plant and are easy to use in decorating. Herbs are also an option but you need to be careful if you start selling any type of consumable that people eat. You never know about allergic reactions or some crazy person with an attitude. 

Might also sell any excess fruit we have from the native fruits I planted when we got here. People seem to like cherries, jostaberries and gooseberries. The invading Japanese beetles don’t seem to like the foliage on these plants. These plants could also be propagated and sold as starter plants.

All these enterprises may result in enough cash that I could afford streaming TV someday.

Five ways to have a Happy Blog!

…I have learned a few things while configuring Glenn’s Way blog on WordPress.  The first way to have a happy blog is to use WordPress rather than Blogger.  WordPress has better free features and plenty of upgrade potential if you want to pay for more capabilities.  You need to be a little careful what you say on WordPress if you are not self-hosted because WordPress does not seem very tolerant of controversial opinions.  My ancient WordPress blog was turned off eons ago by an automatic process.  It was necessary to contact Lisa at WordPress to get my blog back online.  This irritated me at the time so I switched to Blogger but that was not the best idea I ever had.  Blogger proved to be a long lasting disappointment.

The second thing to consider is that you should use PayPal to collect any donations or payments.  PayPal is safe and easy to implement on WordPress.  Other forms of payment are a little risky and I wouldn’t use them on this blog however a large business/charity would also need to accept credit cards.

Third, do not expect to get rich quick from the proceeds of your blog. Keep your day job for awhile until you show a profit.  Maybe you will be the super blogger that hits it big but don’t bet the farm on it. Also, you can always sell the rights to your blog to someone else for cash if it does not strike it rich. Maybe they will have better fortune than you and you can show a little profit for your work.

Fourth, use a facebook business page to send traffic to your website.  I found the Amazon ebook   facebook marketing made (stupidly) easy to be very useful and I will probably implement many of the ideas in that book for my own facebook page and WordPress blog.

Lastly, have some type of premium content for profit.  Typically this could be an ebook on Amazon or possibly some type of course on your area of expertise.  It is a good idea to give some free samples to your readers so that they know what quality of product you have.

I have a ton or more ideas about blogging that I plan to share in future posts.  Please follow this blog by email if you don’t want to miss any!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

$500 Gander Mountain Gift Card sweepstakes……

via First Cast Sweepstakes

……This is a nice sweepstakes with an easy quick entry.  I entered it for entertainment and it doesn’t cost me anything except my time to enter.  Why waste your hard earned money entering pay lotteries that you won’t win anyways.  There are numerous free sweepstakes that are easy to enter and don’t cost anything.  You may not win but neither do you have to fork over your cash.  I try not to waste too much time with sweeps because I do have other things to do but I enter some of the better easy entry sweeps.  I have won several things over a period of 2o years that were quite nice.
