Hi, Welcome to my first ever blog!! I know I know, - I'm a bit behind the times regarding getting started on blogging!
I started a blog first and foremost to promote my various online businesses that I had - but I've just given the majority of them up now!! Why?
Well, I wasn't making any money for a start off! A pretty good reason, don't you think?
I had been trying to make a go of online home businesses for nearly two years now and was surfing various sites to earn credits to promote my websites - it was taking up most of my day! I must admit it was getting a bit tedious and then fate stepped in.....
My Outlook Express email account where all my business was conducted crashed - leaving me unable to even look at an email, let alone click on the links! So in one mighty blow, I was left with no links to any of the 30 sites I surfed at!
I did try to follow some complicated procedure to get it back on track - without success so in a fit of pique, I decided there and then 'enough is enough'!!
I went into my paypal account and cancelled all my subscriptions - I couldn't believe how many I was paying out for!! No wonder I was always overdrawn in my bank account!
Where were all the promised $1000's of dollars I should be making?? Certainly not in MY bank account - more likely lining the pockets of the so-called 'guru's' who sold me their business in the first place with their tempting offers to 'work from home' and earn yourself thousands. Bulls**t!
I must admit, I did shed a tear, but at the same time I knew I was doing the right thing.
Then I got involved with a sure-fire money making idea...... it was clicking on sent emails and get paid for it.......Mmmm, will I never learn? After clicking away for days and months and accumulating 100's of thousands of pounds/dollars I apply to get paid. 'Ooh no, you have to be a'gold' member'. So I pay out £25 to become a gold member, still clicking away, then I apply yet again to be paid 'My' money that I've slavishly earned! The reply..... 'Ooh no, you have to pay a fee to us so we can tell the bank to give you the money'! What the..... that 'fee' amounted to £450!!! I emailed back with the bright idea that they can deduct the fee from the £450,000 they owe me. But no, they can't do that the cheating, robbing, con of all con men! so once again I was pressing my delete button which had my thousands and thousands of pounds owing to me - all that time wasted for nothing.
My dear understanding hubby said 'Just get yourself a hobby babe and stop trying to earn money online, cos it just don't pay out'! Yeah right, so thats what I'm going to do........... Watch this space or blog!
