Don't get me wrong I like to add widgets to my site too. They really make your website stand out, and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors. However, if you have too many on your website it can slow your website down, also it can make it cluttered. It is easy to get addicted to adding them to your site, because I have had to talk myself out of putting up a couple more. It's nothing wrong with adding them but just make sure that they are aiding your site and not crippling it. Here are a few tips on how to pick the right ones for your site:

  • Make sure the widget has something to do with your site or it's topic. If it doesn't than you may want to reconsider adding it.
  • Make sure it is the right size too. You wouldn't want it to be too big or too small for your website. Test out the different sizes to make sure you are choosing the right size.
  • Make sure you choose the right color for your website. If your website is green you want to reconsider the color purple for your widget.
  • Make sure the widget is an asset for your website and not a hindrance. What are the benefits of having this widget on your website?
  • Decide where you will be adding the widget. Will it be on your sidebar or on a particular page on your website?
  • Decide what kind of widget will it be. Will it be one that moves or stands still or is a popup? This is just to make sure you don't have too much going on your website.
  • Do you really need another widget? Or you just adding it too feed your addiction of widgets?

With the economy like it is everyone should be thinking about multiple streams of income. Perhaps you already have that's why you have been reading this blog. No job is secure these days. It's best to have your camel tied. I'm not against going to college, but I don't think going to college facilitates your success in life, because you can be trained to do any job. In fact, you have to undergo training the majority of time before you start a job, even if you have been to college. Often times, many people don't even end up working in the field that they went to college for.

It's best to have more than one way to make money. The internet is a great way to do this. There are many things that you can do to make money online. Many times people fail because they assume that you don't have to do anything to make money online. That is so far from the truth. I don't know where that idea came from, because even when you work a job you have to do something that's why it's called work. It's essential these days to have multiple streams of income. Whether you are selling something for a company, freelance work, blogging, etc. It is absolutely a must these days. You can ask yourself what you like to do or what you are good at. That will put you in the direction of what you can look into doing. I know sometimes people don't even give things a chance. They just write it off without even checking it out. If it can help you make some extra money at least look into it. Don't be so narrow minded. How will you know it won't work if you haven't looked at it or tried it? Probably because the majority of people only think that a job is the only way you can make money.

It's not if you don't already know. I'm not telling you to quit your job if you have one, but I'm saying be looking to other ways to make income as well. You may even get to the point that you can quit your job.If you already are doing other things to make money. That's great! Keep on doing it and don't stop. Even if it's not going the way you want. The tide will eventually turn, because it always does. If it's fear of what people are going to say. Don't tell them, because it's none of their business anyway. If it's laziness get off the couch and start looking. If it's procrastination just do it! You can start by reading this blog if you aren't already. May we all be prosperous!

Self-improvement or personal growth is something that will be part of our lives forever. This is something that everyone needs. If we make the effort, we can and will improve ourselves. It's easy to stay the way that we have always been, however, negative it may be, but it takes a lot of courage to make the changes that we know we need to make. No one can decide to do this for us. We have to do this for ourselves.




One of my favorite books that really helped me is, "The Magic Of Thinking Big" by David Schwartz. It really helped me overcome a lot of obstacles which I felt were keeping me down. I was very shy. A lot of the techniques he advised were very helpful. It's still one of my all-time favorite self-development books. It helped me to overcome my shyness of dealing with people (not being able to ask questions and being able to state my opinion). Anyone knows that if you are trying to promote any kind of business you have to be able to tell people about it. One of the techniques he advised was just to ask the question. What can the person do to you? That really helped me.
It is not easy to feel positive all the time. One day you might be feeling great and the next day you might not be feeling so great. It is like a flower. You have to keep watering it so it will grow. It really helps to apply what you are learning too. Take one thing at a time. No matter how small you might think it is. For instance, it could be something that you want to stop doing like drinking pop. First write that goal down then, proceed not to do it. You will be surprised at the results, because once we put our mind to it nothing can stand in our way. It's really that simple.
Once you start your journey to self-improvement there will be many people who will try to get in your way. Why? Because they do not want to see you improve. If you change who will listen to all of their problems or keep you being involved in a bunch of foolishness. That's why making these changes is so important.
If we can master ourselves we can master anything. Whether it is business, health related or simply just being better human beings. It's really worth the time into developing yourself. Is it easy? It might not be in the beginning but it gets easier as you go along. If you make up your mind to do it then, it can be done. You will want to check out the,"Successful Self-Improvement Tips" page. It has many tips that will guide you on your journey to self-improvement. This page will cause you to think in a whole new way. We all need help sometimes and it's nothing wrong with that. We can help and encourage each other. Let's have a toast! (I have a bottle of welch's sparkly grape juice) To being the best that we can possibly be in anything and everything that we set out to do!

In fact, the money you make will come in handy. Use this money to pay bills, treat yourself or save it for a rainy day. Remember, this is something you can do in your spare time so, you don't have to stress yourself out about it. Set a time of day to login to complete your offers and take surveys. Consistency is  key.

I will be sharing some pictures of the checks that were sent to me. So, you will be getting proof. I'm going to start with my favorite online survey site which is Cashcrate.
Cashcrateis my number one favorite survey site. It is the site that I have been paid the most money so far. With Cashcrate you earn money by taking survey completing offers, watching videos and referrals. For every new member you refer you earn 20% of what they earn and 10% of what there referrals make. Plus, you get a $3.00 bonus when your referrals earn their first $10.00. See my check below:






TreasureTrooperis a fun survey site. It's similar to Cashcrate in a lot of ways because you complete offers, take surveys and you can earn money by getting referrals. You also earn by doing cash tasks and cash surveys. You can also do treasure hunts. You can earn an extra $100 if you win one. Also win you refer people you get an extra 20% of all the offers they complete for life. In addition, you'll get 5% commission from anybody that your friends refer. So, if you like a challenge you will like Treasure Trooper. See my check below:

A freelancer is someone who works as a writer, designer, performer, or the like, selling their services by the hour, day, job, etc., rather than working on a regular salary for an employer.

There are so many programs all over the internet. How do you know which ones to join and which ones to avoid? Every time you look up someone wants you to join a program. Not another program you are thinking to yourself. Are you in so many internet programs that you have just stopped promoting the ones that you really have interest in? If you are it's time to take a step back, and see which ones are really of interest to you, so that you can start promoting them again. It's easy to get caught up in all the internet drama. There are so many programs promising you that you can make lots of money. Before you know it you are in hundreds of programs but making little or no money at all.

What you need to do is go through all the internet programs that you are in and see which ones you are working. You need to clean house as they say. If you haven't promoted a program in more than a year, than I say it is time to throw in the towel. Being in too many internet programs can also be the reason that you are making no money. It's hard to stay focused when you have stretched yourself too thin. Sometimes we join programs just to be joining them. We have no reason at all. We just sign up. If you are signing up in a program that has a downline and not doing anything you are really doing the person who referred you an injustice. After all, that's what downlines are for, to help each other out.

Don't you just hate it when someone you refer signs up under you, and than does nothing? Of course you do. We all do.I'm not saying that you can't be in more than one program, but if you are losing your mind over it than you need to rethink your priorities. Choose programs that you can stay excited about. Revaluate  your situation. Sometimes things that were good for us a couple of years ago may not be good for us anymore. Is this program working for you? This is the question that you have to ask yourself. If you feel it's not than get out of the program, and find something that will. I had to clean house a couple of days ago too. I just wasn't using these programs, and they had to go. Besides, I wanted to focus on the programs that I enjoy doing and spend more time working with them. Another reason is sometimes people are in programs that have nothing to do with their business or niche.

If the programs you are in are not assisting your business than that can be a real bummer. We want to use tools that are going to help our business not hinder it. It's a bad habit just to sign up for something just because someone else did only to find out that it is not working for you. It becomes internet clutter, because sometimes when you sign up for different programs you start getting emails and invitations to join other programs, and it all just becomes exhausting.Use the programs that you are working with, and leave the programs that you are not. It will make a huge difference. Trust me, it will.

Are you looking for great photos for your websites, photos, blogs, and squidoo lenses? I have been too! That's why I was elated when I found Allposters.  They have some very nice photos. The problem that I was having before I found Allposters was I never could find pictures that were the right size for my sites and complimented them at the same time. I wanted nice and vibrant photo's.  Also, with some of the other free photo places you could not alter the pictures properly. Many of the pictures would be small and I would try to alter them, but in doing so they would become blurry. I had two choices. I could have a too small photo or one that was blurry. I didn't want neither.

Allposters has so many great photo's. The pictures are very vibrant and they really compliment your site. You also have the option of having the photo big or small. They do the altering for you so you don't have to worry about that. All you have to do is choose how big you want it. It can be challenging to find the right photo's for your sites. You have to worry about a lot of the pictures being copyrighted and if they are you have to get permission to use them. It can really be a headache. With Allposters you don't have to worry about those kind of problems. With Allposters you can find exactly what you are looking for. Choose the category get the html for the photo that you want. Allposters is also a poster site too. These photos are really posters. You can purchase them yourself or if someone likes a photo on your site or blog that they like they can also purchase that poster. So, you not only get to use free photos but you can make some extra cash too.

People like pictures. That was one of the first things that I learned should be included in your blog posts. Allposters has some very beautiful photos and the best that I have seen. You might consider purchasing some of these posters for yourself or giving them as gifts, because they have all kinds on so many topics which include:  Education, Motivation, Friendship, Success, Hobbies and Maps. These are just only a few.

I read lots of blogs and I am a member of a lot of social media sites. I am baffled when I see that people don't allow others' to contact them. I follow this one particular blogger on twitter and I was going to send him a message because I liked a particular blog post and I couldn't send him a message. I was shocked. I think it is very important for people to be able to contact you. What if they want to ask you a question or just want to to tell you they liked a particular blog post. I've also seen that some people have that you have to ask your question publicly. Instead of it being sent to the reader. Everyone can read it. I didn't like that option either.

It is very unprofessional when people can't contact you. It looks shady too. The people who usually have no way for you to contact them are usually involved in scams. Who wants to be associated with those kind of people? I know you are probably saying to yourself," I am protecting myself from spammers". You might be protecting yourself from spammers but in doing so you are missing out on comments, friends, customers and constructional criticism. That's a big price to pay to keep the spammers away. It's ways you can keep the spammers away without not letting people contact you. If someone spams you give them a warning and if they keep doing it then you can always block them. The majority of social media and email have spam control.

Let people contact you on your blogs, websites, and all of your social media accounts because if you make it hard for people to contact you, you make it hard for people to connect and do business with you. If people have to jump hurdles to contact and connect with you they won't. If you are that popular maybe they will but chances are they won't.

So, before you finish reading this blog post. Go to your blog and add a contact me form if you don't already have one, and go to all of your social media accounts and make sure that people can send you a message.
