    with my blog!! I shouldn't laugh because I really was excited! I believe there is a God and He loves me! I have earned 58 cents as of today and I set my blog up the 2nd of this month. I know I know, it's pennies, but for someone like me that is starting from (what's lower than scratch? That's where Im starting from, LOL!)

    Anyway, don't give up on your dreams and hopes. I have found things on the web, all free, that have allowed me to get started. Im almost glad I didn't have a bundle of money to start. I wouldn't have learned so much so fast. The hardest part is finding out what truly works, and makes me "feel good and proud" to be part of it.

    Yesterday was a difficult day. My ISP was not "providing" and I ended up literally turning my pc off and going somewhere, anywhere to just clear my head. I have been blessed with high-speed internet most of the time but then, there are days like yesterday. Im very "rural" so I have only 2 choices for service out here. One I can't afford, yet[​IMG] But what I did manage to do before I gave up fighting the download times, was look at a friends website. It was just great and to the point(niche). I also respect him and all he is doing to succeed. So I looked down at the bottom of the page to see how he built his website and found a name of a company[​IMG] I went straight there and found so many awesome things I could use and also, afford. So now, denise has a real, live website "Under construction". I feel my blog has not been in vain since I have learned so very much by building it. Mostly, I am learning from my mistakes[​IMG] Mistakes I hopefully won't make with my website. More later...........[​IMG]

    Congrats - who cares if it is only 58 cents - a lot of people give up before they ever earn a dime so keep up the good work! [​IMG]

    Yes, that is right! It doens't matter how much your first sale is. The only thing that matters is YOU DID IT! [​IMG] You know you are doing something that really works and now all you have to do is wash, rinse and repeat,etc.

    Congrats to you![​IMG]

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Likewise,
    the road to Internet success is paved with lots of pennies. I'd say you
    are on your way! [​IMG]

    and that's the truth[​IMG] I need to do a search on here and see if anyone has talked about copyright issues? I was on a temp job in Alabama, right when Katrina hit? Hard to forget that time. Anyway, it was in NW Alabama so we didn't get but a breeze from Big Kat. The job I was doing was so boring I asked if I could bring in something to do and they said sure. So I brought in a dozen or so magazines, old ones people left at the church for anyone who wanted them. I cut out pretty pics, a whole file-folder full! LOL!! I wanted to use one on my new website for background but I know there could be issues with doing that.

    ttyl Hermas!!![​IMG]

    Julsy: Congratulations!
    Mornin Julsy! Did you see me link to the 7 Steps to a good blog, something like that[​IMG] I found it by googling and it was actually "through" a forum on 5-Star Affiliate Program. But it's just a blog and it's free. The guy is doing a whole series on his blog and I am gonna check back and see what all he is writing. Anyway, someone at 5 Star said you can use the very, same principles to do a successful website. Those steps are what I did to find my niche. It was easy when I followed the steps, LOL!! I hate to follow instructions, I'd rather make it hard on myself, LOLLLLLLLL, NOT!!!

    By the way, I did my blog wrong in sooooooo many ways, LOL! Found the 7 steps "after" the fact[​IMG] Not too late for my website though[​IMG]

    See you soon, denise[​IMG]

    Hi Denise,

    I have seen many of your post and I think you are new like me??? Anyway congradulations!!!! I made my first $3.00, not a lot but the fact that I did it is encouraging. I was so overwhelmed that I decided to sit down for a couple of hours and work on just one thing that I did understand. 24 hours later I had $3.00.

    My first attempt at anything like a web page was a disaster. I was on twitter because of the a reccomendation by the 30 day challenge which has taught me a lot. Before I knew it, someone was following me and advertising all over my page. lol. Anyway good luck!!!

    Congrats on your first $0.58! Hopefully if you keep the great attitude you have it will turn into much much more!

    One of the problems with a lot of people is they expect BIG money, with LITTLE effort, very QUICKLY! Since when did this work? Since when is this what we're "owed"??

    I think your attitude is refreshing b/c you've chosen to see the positives in your progress and aren't playing the victim b/c you're earning weren't $58,000 in the first day!

    Keep at it!
