I have been comfortable after doing what I did yesterday with my roommates and since did picked me up. Just Chilling out as my Dad sleeps and I work on my blogging adventure. Dixie is definitely not a calm dog and my head ache is getting worse since I’ve been up for the last two days.
We’re going fishing in the morning at Grapevine Lake then to lunch and then too Bass Pro Shops. I’m planning on getting a good nights sleep tonight and I’ll probably go to sleep on the couch. We’re planning on getting up early in the morning. Woke up this morning about 6 am I don’t know how I was so comfortable waking up maybe because of the meditation exercises i have been doing.
I was comfortable even though I had only 4 hours of sleep. Bought this domain and WordPress hosting last night from namecheap.com. It’s so much better to have a self hosted WordPress blog. I need to start making some money from blogging since I have blogged since the age of 13 and never made a penny. It’s also the only thing that seems promising at the moment.
My content needs to be king and I want you to be able to take away something new that you’ve never heard of until you have read my post. Sail is one of my boyfriend and my favorite songs that’s fitting in what we do. He’s a tattoo artist and we’re really just cool friends ok so maybe it’s just a crush. I do need to make you the reader feel comfortable with what I write and make you feel welcome and at home at my blog. So it’s ok Johnna is here I will help you in whatever way I can.
This sure beats the marketing gig I had walking around in fancy clothes selling spa packages for Impact. It may be easy to make a sales “centered” but the difference can make my blog thrive. Quality over quantity and the readers come first so please leave a comment and give me some suggestions on what you would like me to help you with. The affiliates I am going to use are from awin.com, rakutenmarketing.com/affiliate, shareasale.com. I am just getting started with becoming an affiliate so bare with me while I learn as much as I can.
Whatever I wrote before my computer got sick and I had to restart it got deleted – hate when that happens. That’s why it’s always important to save your work. Glad I’m not going to school or getting ready to go. Eventually I will and I will get my Bachelors in Public Relations and Advertising but until then I’m studying enough blogging for money stuff to keep my occupied.
Despite not sleeping at all in the last 48 hours I really don’t feel all that bad except my eyes and my butt are sore from sitting on this uncomfortable chair and not blinking often. If I could earn a few bucks for this time I have been working on blogging that would be nice. I could buy a domain or Get a 30-day supply of designer fragrance for $13.95/mo. Get 30% Off First Month, ScentBox.com. Though I’ll have to earn enough to buy the domain WordPress package from earning it from working my blog.
I am searching through other peoples blogs and have been searching for the last several hours how to make money off of blogging. I just have to be persistant and keep finding the keys to figuring this out and most of the articles say that it will tae at least 3 to 6 months. JustlyFound has only been around 2, this will be the 3rd month.
I will have to start taking my laptop to The Center with us when we go during the day. Since there is no wifi access at the group home. Glad I’m not at the group home right now I still need to clean up and everything before Dad comes back from work and his dental appointment. I have been glued to the screen for hours on end. Signing up for all sorts of programs. One program I just signed up for is called Awin along with ShareASale these two should give me a good foundation to make affiliated sales. I greately appreciate all the readers I have had today I am already at what June had at the end of the month on the 3rd of this month.
Entrepreneurship is what I need to be able to attain in the next coming weeks in order to truly get this to work. My father owned a spinner bait shop that I helped out with when I was about 8 that was his business. Unfortunately some horrible guy took off with the business credit card. I keep getting calls about credit cards on my cellphone but I am rest assured I do not have one. So working on making my blog into an assett I can use to really make some money. Though I can still not make over $1000 a month on SSDI. I also have an interview coming up with Lori’s Gifts in Fort Worth.
Making this website profitable will finally mean I’m doing something with my degree choice of PR and ADVT. I will need to pay attention to the news in order not to write like I was when I first opened this blog up and simply stating whims. It will take a whole lot of sacrifice, work, hustle, creativity, and dedication to get this into a profitable blog to where I can be using this blog instead of a real job.
Time To Set Some Goals After August I want to earn $300, have 500 Twitter followers, 1,000 Pinterest followers, and 50 Instagram Followers, promote affiliates and try to sell 1 – 3 items. In 12 months I would like to earn $1000 a month and double my amount of followers.
Good Solid Content Having the right attitude and knowing what to post and provide for your readers makes all the difference. No one wants to come to a boring website. Post that contain information the reader can really take away after reading. Where they have something to learn from what you/I have written.
Be Willing To Learn Constantly Blogging won’t work unless your willing to put the time and effort into it.
How I’ve Been living for the past year & how my life would change for the better once I can make blogging my career.
I really don’t have too much that’s my own I have a twin bed on a cot at the Group Home on Hitson. Where I pay every part of my SSDI check toward the food, sheltered home, and a nanny to take care of us. I have $100 dollars left after that and that’s too last me for the entire month until about the 3rd.
I have been traveling with my black duffle bag between the Group Home and my parents house. This time I brought my laptop which I have been glued too the entire time. Most of the time my roommates and I are trying to get outside to smoke these cheap $2 a pack cigars called Talons. Although this time when Dad took me to the corner store I bought two packs of Marlboro Black 100s don’t know how long they will last me. Got them yesterday around this time it’s almost 3 and I have only smoked half a pack.
Having a good weekend at my parents with my son and mom gone. It’s quiet around here and I’m working on getting as much done on this blog as I can.
Hopefully when I get back the TV & Wifi are working. I have been using the 4G feature on my cellphone to connect to the internet and haven’t been able to use my laptop in over a month. We normally don’t have anything but tap water to drink. Earlier in the summer we wen’t without AC for a week or two.
It’s so quiet here without Brandon and I’ve had the house to myself with just our two dogs. Which the dog knocked off the Afghan rug that was held up with wooden pegs. Tomorrow Dad wants to go fishing at Grapevine Lake and then eat and go to Bass Pro Shops. I brought my SMOK e-cig with Dragon Juice Candy vape oil in it. You can get your own at Shop SMOK, Joyetech and More!
My life would be different because I would be able to afford the things I need and want. I could afford a car and pay insurance and afford gas. I could pay back my student loans and afford to go back to school again to finish my Senior year. I could buy an apartment for Brandon and I and I could take care of my kid myself. I could get off SSDI and be able to save money for the future while still being able to go to the psychiatrist and being able to go to the hospital and take my so. While also being able to afford medicine, my own food, and my own stuff I need to live a comfortable life. Oh If We we’re all so lucky & won the lottery!
Stop sitting around doing nothing expecting things to change and get better. You have to be proactive and working on my blogging everyday is better time used than sleeping like my roommates do.
I really need something good to happen though the longer I keep sitting around feeling sorry for myself and doing nothing about it. The longer it will be for things to get better. This could really change my life. These stockphotos are from https://picjumbo.com and my sister HB is getting married next year so this is a good time to start working toward these goals.
I didn’t go to sleep last night instead I’ve been working on things to make this a better blog. I can’t simply do a domain name and keep wordpress.com so I am just going to keep it the way it is. When I went to make coffee both the Keurig and the regular coffee maker were broken. Luckily we had some instant coffee stored away. Instagram Live Q&A with Food Blogger Pro One of my new ShareASale Affiliates so please check this brand out.
I used the App Headspace and it is guiding me through 10 days of learning how to meditate. Although to get anything else on the app you have to buy the app. I have been meaning to learn how to meditate for some time now. As well as taking self-care seriously. 10 Mistakes that Bloggers Make – Free eBook! my parents have been trying to eat healthier than usual. My Dad slept through his alarm for work and is still asleep. Good thing he is still going to work.
This blog is pretty new and so far I appreciate the 10 followers I have received. So often when I make myself a new site and get readers I get to the point where I’ll stop and then go to a different blog. Just like with my medication if I didn’t have a nanny to give the pills to me every day.
My last blog before this was http://www.missing-alias.net hosted by Blogger. My site before that was http://www.lifeasacollegemom.net another Blogger website. Although to get a domain on WordPress isn’t cheap and it would cost me my months’ paycheck. Since I only get $100 every month and the rest of my money goes towards my health at the group home.
I’m hoping to turn this blogging thing into a career since I have been blogging since around the age of 13. If I would have stayed with the same blog and not have switched them all the time I’m sure I too could be one of those blogging success stories. Same with jobs if I would have stayed at one job for most of my 20s I would be better off.
I have to be determined to be successful and I have to wake up and realize that the situation I’m in currently is not a dead end. Being in the group home and over at my parents house on the weekends. Not being able to be a responsible parent due to disabilities is hard also.
Being in and out of college and still no degree and tons of college student loans in debt. I need the financial freedom and I need to take blogging as a career path and choice to be a #BossBabe. There’s so much I wish I could do that I either need to wait for the right timing or just know my limits.
Passionately Pursue I have been writing way before anything else. I was always the girl who was caught with a notebook of some kind or an electronic device since a little girl. I couldn’t imagine life without writing. I can focus on making money with my blog but it shouldn’t come in the way of actual writing. What I write about has to make me happy – I love to learn new things every day and share them with the outside world.
Blogging Business & Taking It Seriously I have to treat this blog like it was my actual job because it will be my job. Work often so you don’t lose readers and followers. I need to rise above and prove to everyone I can do what they think I can’t. This lady is a good motivational writer.
Bought me a pair of MIC headphones as soon as I got to the center today. My roommate Laurens’ mom comes to visit on Wednesdays after taking her to the psychiatrist. I remember before I started going to MHMR on Lancaster. My mom would take me and Brandon to Hurst and I would go see Dr. Naus my psychiatrist who I had seen for 5+ years. Then I had Mrs. Mamo then I ran off on the streets.
Yesterday the center had a leak in one of the pipes. Luckily today the center was open.
Have 2 packs of Talon cigars and half my Coca-Cola left. We slept even more yesterday. Lately things have been slow & peaceful.
Pictures of my roommates & I.
Take time for ?? self care & too help those around you.
Are there such things as channels? What about tunnel vision. Why is there water all over my parent’s floor? Now even I am acting too lazy to clean it up or help the fine print of parenting. My parents have done most of the hard work with Brandon including potty training.
While my son (I mean our son ♣️♥️♠️) has a bloody nostril as we all proceed to pile into the bathroom to take care of him. It isn’t my business in the first place is it! Though it sure as heck isn’t theirs to even think about. We’ve already had our run-ins with CPS.
How did prey attack predator when the predator is supposed to attack prey. Geology rocks what pigments do we play. What do the time × force = time? I’ve attempted to take every science course at the University of Texas at Arlington though I wasn’t able to complete even one. I did pass Biology at TCC with a C and I was happy to get out of there.
Is this what we were all counting on & depending on. I am not a piece of pinned up hair with a pin and that is not the door. In which we try to unlock when we know we are not welcome especially not in this suite.
The trials we face become the things we are in the future. If that’s true these last two years would send me down the gutter for sure. Though I can’t think of it that way. I refuse to live in Orange Is The New Black straight jacket life. Don’t put me in a room with white walls and make it so I can always have my meds in the morning.
Though this Spring was messed up, to begin with, I would have failed my test that’s for certain. I was already scoring 43% on them and I may never go back to finish what I already started.
I have used planners for several years of my life. Several of them have been misplaced. We shouldn’t look back at the age of 45 and fall even deeper into the wishing well of things we never even tried to accomplish. I am not your mamma or your guardian after you hit a certain age no one really is.
We are selfish by nature and we are tempted every hour of our lives. We float between the ups and downs of life. Pain and sorrow can last forever and it takes work to get over past hurt. It is necessary to listen, forgive, be humble, and also be loving. Personally people will always be wanting to critique your work and mock your obedience.
We need to begin by obeying our parents, couches, teachers, respectful relationships. If not there will be a lot of heartache and regret for years to come. We need to be learning every day and spending time on something worthwhile. Take some time to look up self help articles and do research on topics that struck your needs.
Time for work, play, balancing our finances and then the fun part of shopping. I bought some new outfits for this summer and my laundry is in the washer. Everything comes with a cost, as a child my parents would tell me that nothing in this world is free. As a growing young adult I used to be very self sacrificing and hard on myself.
I am starting to lighten up as I’ve been fortunate to light up these cigarettes my parents have bought me. Since I’v woken up the hard truth that even cigarettes are expensive at times. We can chose to be selfish or giving the choice is ours and no one can make it for us. Don’t listen to them and be careful who your friends are.
How dare you complain especially about things that are not yours. In those difficult times its best to get away. Read, or take a walk, or take a relaxing shower. There is a big difference between love vs. lust and life vs. death.
Don’t be too distracted by what is kinda of important but do your best to stay focused on doing what is best for you and those around you.
Eventually, we have to grow up and we just have to stop all childish behavior we’re constantly changing. God helps us along the way but we have to give Him the chance to move and help us. I have stopped writing on my last blog which was ?? http://www.missing-alias.net. Simply because I wanted to change to WordPress for the community aspect of having the following and read option.
Here’s to growing up I’ll be 31 next month ?. I have a great family that is being supportive ???? and even that has been a changing environment right now. I left my parents house in March after dropping out of University of Texas at Arlington and having a run-in with the law in which I went to jail. I ended up going to jail three times last year and don’t plan on going back or stepping out of line of the law again.
I am currently living in a Group Home, in Fort Worth – Texas ?. I was able to move back home and I was there for December and January. Though I had to drop out of University of Texas at Arlington again after getting sick at school. I was then sent to the group home after I spent fifteen days in Millwood.
An earlier discussion I had with my mother ?? when she dropped me off at the halfway house was about how we grew up spoiled. Or at least how we need to be thankful for every blessing we have.
My Dads in the military ? my family has had it’s up and downs. Now it is my turn ? Adult life.
My family, boyfriend, and friends that have known me (well for the most part) have helped a lot in the last 7 years to get over my childish fears.
We have to plan out and try to stay as close to our true values as we can. One of the hardest things in life is to figure out yourself. You really have to dig in and set out and know what you want. When I was young I didn’t have it all figured out although a lot of young people think they do. My 4-year-old son has been a blessing to our whole family.
This weekend was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. I no longer want to discuss what I use to do about partying and drugs and it really isn’t anyone’s business. When we fall down we have to be able to pull ourselves up again. I hope not everyone goes through this but living on the streets can teach you a lot too. Though the concert the church I attend was able to go to the AT&T stadium and enjoy Harvest America.
Harvest America with Greg Laurie and listening to Switchfoot was great. Blessed my parents helped me out last night financially. As I look for a job and get ready to start paying off these large student loans. I have an interview at Bankers Life on Wednesday I’m needing part time work. Since I am on SSDI and can’t earn more than $1,000.
When I was younger I thought that was a lot of money. In the adult world that isn’t really enough to live off of. Most of us will work until the day we die. My father wakes up at 4:30am to go to work and I really look up to him. Today Brandon had Tennis Camp and Saturday a Tball game. I couldn’t be anymore thankful for my parents providing these things we have grown up with and taking care of my son.
As we grow older we find that we are recieving more respect the better we do. It is too easy to slip up on what we are supposed to do. There are so many in the crowd pointing fingers that we coulda, woulda, shoulda done especially ourselves. We can get so hard on ourselves we end up on our death bed – remember it is NEVER too late.
