Still Hustling


I went self-employed in July 2011 and have been working online ever since. But online blog advertising, especially direct ads like the ones I work on placing, have slowed in the last 2 years. What does a lady do when her main business slows down? She either tries to save it and grow it, [...]

When Life Gives You Lemons, Diversify


Google hurt me. Well, technically, Google decided to take a poop on a bunch of bloggers’ and advertisers’ Page Ranks, so now advertisers are gun shy.

Finding a Business Niche


When I quit my day job in mid-July 2011, I thought the key to working from home was going to be having my finger in as many pies as possible. Yeah, that didn’t happen. I have actually seemed to create a marketing empire and now blog as a hobby again, lol.
