Icicles

This is icicles hanging from mountains between Sorrento and Salmon Arm BC. I just took these today.

Something New!

On Tumblr I hid the cash blog and started a new one called Emmanuel Unlimited. That one will give me more room for various topics. So when I start my blog on a different platform it’ll be Emmanuel Unlimited.

It would’ve been a good idea to have done that in the first place.

I had poured over ‘how to’ blogs before I started this one. And it’s a prime example of how we can’t always follow the advice of others. I tried to follow advice on how be successful at blogging. One of those pieces of advice was stick to one topic for your niche. Another one was do your research on the most popular searches and pick a niche out of the most popular choices. Well, for me, I tried to do that, but the idea went bust.

The bottom line is, much of the advice I read, although it might have worked for them, and it might work for some other people, it has been completely impractical for me.

Have you ever tried taking someones advice and it was like trying to use a machine that is completely foreign to you?

I’m a variety person. If I go and read a blog or a book, if I stick to one topic all the time I get antsy or bored. Sometimes I don’t mind romance novels if they’re not too predictable. If it’s a susepense that has romance in it, it’s okay. Or if it is a romance, but the auther has an interesting choice of words, like having a character with a sense of humor, or if there’s an inspiring character full of faith and wisdom, I will get intrigued.

My point is, sticking to one topic goes against my grain.I did say in another post I’m not quitting, and I’m not. I’m going to be here for a time yet, I just don’t know how long. And I’m going to change as much on this blog as I can.

I was going to do my best to stick to this being a cash blog, but that is completely impractical for me. That was why I started other blogs, but then everything wreaked havoc. The other blogs got messed up. So for now while I’m still on this platform I’m doing the best I can to make the most of it. When I get my laptop I’ll be moving to another one. Let’s just say there’s a lot of things that are up in the air, like whether to change the name of this blog or not, whether to continue here still even after moving to another platform or not etc.

I’ll keep you all posted.

This is the logo I chose for Emmanuel Unlimited.

Starting All Over

I’m fixing to start all over. I will be doing it on another platform. Remember, I’m not quitting! I’m just going back to square one on another platform. I’ll keep you all posted.

I just need my laptop. The one I want to go with I need my laptop in order to set it up and edit it. That will take a bit of time, because I also need to fix issues with my laptop. And it’s not with me right now. I have to get it from Calgary.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

It’s up in the air how long I’ll continue here on WordPress. But I’ll continue on social media. You’ll still see me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on Tumblr.

I’m fixing to sell my own products rather than promoting others (with some acceptions). There are some sources I have been using and am really happy with. That, too is up in the air. But the concrete choices right now are my own products, and the other platform.

I just wanted to remind you, for now youaremyniche.wordpress.com

is still up and running, so you can still go there and have a look. I’ll be deleting all the Adfly links. And doing more updates. But that’s going to take time. So I trust you’ll be patient.

Thank you for your understanding.

Update

You might be wondering why I’m always announcing when I’m having tech issues.

It’s about building trust. I care about my readers. When I have content that is intended to help, and then I have tech issues, I’d rather be honest and say I have tech issues.

My travel blog is no more, youaremyniche.wordpress.com seems to be working again. But my travel blog ‘went south’. I guess it needed a permanent vacation.😂

I deleted my hobby journey blog. I’ll keep you all updated. I’m fixing for a better solution, one that’s going to function better in the long run. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The bottom line, things are going to change a lot. Cash blog is going be a miscellaneous blog. I won’t change the URL address, yet.

I’m just going to the drawing board to get things working the best I can.

I will no longer use Adfly. For various reasons. For you skeptics out there, I don’t want to openly throw anyone under the bus.

Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

Earning Cash

Today I’m going to share a story about my sisters and I earning some cash together.

This took place back in the early nineties. I was about twelve or thirteen years old.

It was a hot and sultery Manitoba summer as usual. I was bored and needed something to do. Although I typicaly liked watching movies in the cool basement, I didn’t have money to rent a movie, and was bored of the movies we had. Coming from a single parent home, and my mother working two jobs just to make ends meet, I had to fund my own ‘fun’. So I went around the neighborhood knocking on doors.

Okay, lets rewind a bit, I went over to one neighbors house. She was a schoolmate and a friend. Her and I put our heads together and pondered on how to earn our own cash. She came up with the idea of baking cookies and selling them. That turned out to be a dead end road for us. She dropped out of the ‘team’ and I went solo with another idea. 🍪💵

I went door to door and asked if they wanted their yard work done. A few yards later I came home grinning wide with some cash in hand.

My sisters asked me where I got the cash. I told them about my yard work gigs and they asked if they could join me. I heartily agreed and the three of us happily worked on a few more yards.

The last gig together was our neighbour across the street. We all raked the leaves together and when they were all ready, the guy helped us bag them. He even took us with him on a journey to the dump. when we arrived back ‘home’ I felt I should thank him, but didn’t know how to with out it sounding weird. So I resorted to bluntness, as I often did. ‘Thanks for taking us to the dump’. Came my reply. 🤔

I heard later how he was very amused by that. 😁

Cash in hand, the three of us sauntered to the movie rental place, put our heads together in agreement with three movies and snacks.

One of the movies was Arachnophobia. In a nutshell it was about spiders. And we were all creeped out, as none of us like spiders. I guess that was just our way of getting our thrill for the day.

Watching my sisters intently, I would go over and lightly tickle their skin, and watched them wiggle with fright. They would then do the same to me.😧😂
