Why Blog?

whyblogIt’s funny how many times over the years that I have heard people tell me and others that you need to get “yourself” out there so that others know you – branding “you” is the best way to do this.  Why Blog?  Well let me tell you the reasons that I do and then would love to hear comments on why others blog.

The main reason that I blog is that it gives me a chance to talk to people like you that I don’t always get to on a daily basis – you know the hi, how are you, what you been doing.  Over the years, as you work more online you meet more and more people and it’s hard to keep the personal touch and this is a way that I have found to keep the personal touch.  Me being me – just talking to you like you were setting right here in front of me.

opinionThe next reason is that it gives me a chance to write a review about a new product, site, or tool that I feel needs to be talked about – my way of shouting to the world that his is or is not worth talking about.  AND yes I do not always write positive reviews and the best part about blogging is it’s yours and your opinion and don’t have to be approved by anyone.

For me another reason that I enjoy blogging is that I even get people added to my list without much effort and here is how.  Over the years in learning to brand “myself”, I have learned that blogging is one of the resources that keep giving you results back when you least expect them.  You would be amazed at how many times I have had someone contact me from a post that was done years ago.

google-search-840x560Now this reason is going to sound strange but you know the saying about walking the walk and talking the talk – well I feel that blogs can do this.  When I have someone that I have never met, I Google them just to see what they know and gives me an idea their level of education with online marketing.  The back side to this is if you meet someone that makes it sound too good to be true, Google them especially if they tell you they have been working online for x amount of years – it will be there.

Well I saved the best for last – Why Blog?  EDUCATION  Over the years, I have learned so much by reading others blogs and believe me there is not many things that you cannot put into Google Search and read about.  This has come in so handy for me over the years in answering questions from others – instead of just answering ONE person – blogging your answer will help others also.

commentNow I’m sure there are many reasons out there on Why Blog and can’t wait to hear from all of you yours – don’t be shy

Just write your comment like I sitting across from you and listening because I AM

Prepare – are you ready?

prepareWell finally I can set at this desk long enough to get this post done as I have been wanting to do this for awhile now.  Most of us don’t like to think about this but I do feel that it’s one that everyone should think about Prepare – are you ready?

Most of you know that I have been having health issues and was scheduled to have my thyroid out and was told this was a 24 hours in the hospital and back home.  WRONG, well at least for me.  My 1 day turned into 9 days and when you have an online business you know that you are open 24/7 and 365 days of the year.  Did you prepare – are you ready to be gone from your business that long?

Luckily, preparations were made and things went somewhat smooth – the site stayed afloat, new members joined and I didn’t run out of credits while I was gone.  Lot of times I hear people talk about all the credits that they have built up and this is ONE time that I was glad that I had and had them assigned.

Now for the unexpected?  Prepare – are you ready?  This one took me off guard as I was not as prepared for this one as I went into ER thinking they would give me something for the pain and send me home – wow I was sure surprised to hear that I was going to have to have emergency surgery and this time have my gallbladder removed.

sickcat2The reason that I’m explaining all this as this happened just 36 days later that I was back in for a 2nd surgery and why I want everyone to Prepare and get yourself ready as you really don’t know when things like this can happen.

When emergencies strike and they will and do – Prepare – are you ready?

One Day One Step At A Time

quote-big-achievements-come-one-small-advantage-at-a-time-one-step-at-a-time-one-day-at-time-jim-rohn-92-98-79So often I’m asked how do I get this done and that done and how do I keep up with the things that I do.  Well my answer is very simple one day one step at a time.

Thru the years,  the key to all this falling into place is still simple – find something that you love doing and everything else falls into place.  Is it hard work?  Well I have to answer that with two answers – yea and no.

No I didn’t loose my mind – if you define hard work as long hours, showing up daily, and keep going because you believe in what you are doing then my answer is yes.  But on the other hand – if you find something you love doing, something that the more you do – the more you want to do and you dream about all the things you want to do – then my answer is no.

Keeping this in mind, sometimes a day can get overwhelming and lot of times will not go in the direction that you expected when you started out. So that is why I just keep taking one day one step at a time.

So when you feel like you are stuck in life, you don’t have the energy to keep trying or you are being discouraged by others – hang in there – take one day one step at a time – you will get there.


Are you living your life with no regrets?

WOW I just came across couple videos that I think the whole world needs to see and just had to share – this is a real eye opener and should be for all.  Are you living your life with no regrets?

Sometimes a person just needs to step back and look at YOUR life as everyone just gets so caught up in your daily activities – at the end will you be able to say I lived my dream or will you have regrets.


Your Attitude + Your Choices = Your Life

It’s funny how things happen in the day that lead you in a different direction and this is one of them as I know I needed to do a blog post here.  I commented on another blog and decided to expand more as this sure does sum things up YOUR ATTITUDE + YOUR CHOICES = YOUR LIFE

Now you should go back and reread that and really think about it as I remember one of the first things that I was told when I got divorced and thought my world fell apart.  A friend told me this


That has stuck with me over the years and when things don’t go the way that I think they should I remember this quote.  This not only goes for your personal life but also for your business.


Things are never going to be perfect, things are never going to go the way that YOU think they should go but you stay focused, stay positive and try ONE more time – you just might find what you have been looking for.


Are you going to always make the right choices – NO
Learn from ALL your choices and keep moving forward.




Points For You To Ponder

Well most of you know well enough by now that I listen and read what others have to say and then I have to share my two cents so I have some points for you to ponder.

Judging others

judgingcat3Way too often I see or hear about other site owners judging others for something they might be trying especially if it’s out of the norm.  And here lately, it’s because this one might be opening too many sites or another might be asking people to pay them directly to their Paypal account to keep from paying commissions and the list goes on and on.

Well I am still old fashioned enough that I still believe in ye without sin cast the first stone – and I just don’t understand how some can put themselves up on this high pedestal – don’t know about you but my mom always told me that being on that pedestal – there is always someone that wants to knock you off.

Just because you have been around the TE World for awhile, or might have more experience programming your own site, or think that you have learned it all – it still does not give you the right to judge others – period.  In my opinion, you should be focusing that time in figuring out how you can make me happy and get the results that I’m looking for.

Set of Rules to Abide By

peteThis one really gets me as I listen to this “set of rules” that some have come up with and that should be followed when running your own site or in your promoting another site.  Last I heard, we are still in a country where I still have the freedom to run my site the way I see so it will benefit my site and the members. Also, I can promote what program I want – or did we lose our freedom?

Now before you go thinking we are protecting others from being screwed over – and again who made you judge and jury?  Grant you there are some programs out there that are questionable but I don’t feel I’m qualified to decide which they are – just my opinion is I should be focused on my site and know in my heart what I am doing is legal and morally right period.

Stop straddling the fence. Again it’s these same people that talk about others yet do the same behind the scenes and I see that all the time.  How can a person preach one thing and then do the same thing they are saying others should not be doing.  How can a person put down another person for trying it their way and then publically be put down them for it BUT yet keep taking that persons money for an upgrade at their site?


Who wrote the cheaters handbook?  What or who is a cheater?  When should a person be suspended?  AND if you suspend the cheaters, do they still count the that total member total that you brag about? What happened to being innocent until proven guilty?  Did that go by the wayside also?

judgingcatGrant you there are many cheaters out there and yes they should be stopped but the ones that point fingers really should look at the 3 pointing back at them.  Do you really do everything by the book?  Do you not find shortcuts that shouldn’t be used?  Do you not make deals with others behind the scene?  So who is cheating really?  Think about that the next time you make a deal with someone – who are you cheating out of their commissions?

Lifetime Upgrades

Well this one could be a post in itself as I have really caught hell (excuse my English) that I didn’t put out one of those cheap lifetimes on the mailer that I just launched.  Well Just my opinion, lifetimes are just fast money for an owner.  If the owner was serious about their sites, plan on being around for the long haul then there are expenses that go with it.

Lot of owners get in trouble offering these cheap lifetimes and then wonder why they can’t pay the commissions.  When a lifetime is offered and a person is getting 50 % commissions – you just took in 1/2 the money your should and you cut that recurring income out by offering that lifetime.

AND don’t go and make some low upgrade that is just a few credits above what free members get and put the word lifetime on it.  Come on we are not that stupid that we are going to buy that crap – just so we can say we have a lifetime at your site.  AND yes that does happen – people have been brain washed with that word lifetime.  It’s a trigger word just like free, discount, sale, etc.  Make sure that you read the fine print before you buy and that site owner laughs all the way to the bank.

60728294946944041_qNywDCq7_bWell I see that I got long winded again but feel better that got some things off my chest.  If you are looking for an honest, hard working owner, they are out there.  Don’t get caught up in the crap you read or hear about others.  The bottom line is TRACK YOUR RESULTS – this will show you the true facts about sites and where you should be with your advertising.  What works for someone else not always works for you – you have to take the time and find out what works for YOU.

Why Global Ad Share?


Well I finally got a chance to share my newest site that is working for me and when read – keep an open mind and keep reading as I want to tell you why Global Ad Share.

First of all if you have not heard of Global Ad Share – I’m not going into all the details and repeat what it is, how it works etc. when the owner has done an awesome job of this on his own blog – so just going to send you there.  Asher’s Blog

The reason that I want you to go to his blog is to read about the owners, see the programs that he has already been doing and is successful in.  Now I know most of you just cringe with the words matrix, revenue sharing, and cycler.

Believe me I can relate as I also said NO MORE – and yes I was in Just Been Paid, Profit Clicking, Zeek Rewards, Profitable Sunrise and so I know exactly what you are
thinking BUT there are a few things about this one that really caught my eye on being different.

One was a PIF (pay it forward) that was offered to me and the $5.00 mini adpack that was set up for free members.  So what happened was that my sponsor transferred me the $5.00 and said buy the mini adpack and then when it matures it will automatically upgrade you when it matures and you will get 150% return on your $5.00.

Then after you mini adpack cycles and you are upgraded (which it will do automatically the first mini adpack) you have 30 days to watch the program and make your decision on what you want to do.  So how can you say no to an offer like that and where do you get a change to test drive a site that is going to earn you money and it not cost you anything up front.

So I said ok as I trusted my upline and sure enough the mini cycled out, I got my upgrade on auto just like she said – I watched as the money grew and I bought a$10.00 adpack and it cycled out to the 150% which was 15.00.  And since then I have been reinvesting the money earned in more adpacks and also offering friends of mine the same deal with the PIF.

AND yes I did test the withdrawal as it states withing 24 hours – well they are right I put in a withdrawal request and had my money in 6 hours – now I don’t know about you but NEVER did I get my withdrawals from those other companies that fast.

In the meantime, I keep buying adpacks and promoting my traffic exchange (Zaney Clicks) for more exposure as this site is growing and it’s great to be seen on a site that is very active – so it’s a win win for me – promote my site and earn money at the same time – love it.

There is a Skype support room filled with knowledgeable GAS (Global Ad Share) members that are very willing to help you and this room stays active but not very many questions – mostly excited, happy Gassers telling about the money they are making.

So if you would like to join me and my TEAM, Skype me @nancyradlinger or message me @ wisgrandma@yahoo.com with Interest in GAS as I get so many emails and have it filtered for these messages and I will get back with you and go from there.

Also, if you are on my team – I will add your referral link to my GAS referrals rotator and you will be promoted – I believe in helping my team – a happy team is a growing team.


Great Dog Story and Well Worth the Reading!!

They told me the big black Lab’s name was Reggie,

as I looked at him lying in his pen.

The shelter was clean, no-kill,

and the people really friendly.

I’d only been in the area for six months, but

everywhere I went in the small college town, people

we’re welcoming and open. Everyone waves

when you pass them on the street.

But something was still missing as I attempted to settle

in to my new life here, and I thought a dog couldn’t hurt.

Give me someone to talk to. And I had just seen

Reggie’s advertisement on the local news. The shelter

said they had received numerous calls right after,

but they said the people who had come down

to see him just didn’t look like “Lab people,”

whatever that meant. They must’ve thought I did.

But at first, I thought the shelter had misjudged me

in giving me Reggie and his things, which consisted

of a dog pad, bag of toys almost all of which were

brand new tennis balls, his dishes and

a sealed letter from his previous owner.

See, Reggie and I didn’t really hit it off when we got home.

We struggled for two weeks (which is how long the shelter

told me to give him to adjust to his new home). Maybe it

was the fact that I was trying to adjust, too.

Maybe we were too much alike.

I saw the sealed envelope. I had completely forgotten

about that. “Okay, Reggie,” I said out loud, “let’s see

if your previous owner has any advice.”

To Whomever Gets My Dog:

Well, I can’t say that I’m happy you’re reading this,

a letter I told the shelter could only be opened by

Reggie’s new owner. I’m not even happy writing it.

He knew something was different.

So let me tell you about my Lab in the hopes

that it will help you bond with him and he with you.

First, he loves tennis balls. The more the merrier.

Sometimes I think he’s part squirrel, the way he hoards them.

He usually always has two in his mouth, and he tries to get

a third in there. Hasn’t done it yet. Doesn’t matter where

you throw them, he’ll bound after them, so be careful.

Don’t do it by any roads.

Next, commands. Reggie knows the

obvious ones —“sit,” “stay,” “come,” “heel.”

He knows hand signals, too: He knows “ball”

and “food” and “bone” and “treat” like nobody’s business.

Feeding schedule: twice a day, regular

store-bought stuff; the shelter has the brand.

He’s up on his shots. Be forewarned: Reggie hates the vet.

Good luck getting him in the car. I don’t know how he

knows when it’s time to go to the vet, but he knows.

Finally, give him some time. It’s only been Reggie and

me for his whole life. He’s gone everywhere with me,

so please include him on your daily car rides if you can.

He sits well in the backseat, and he doesn’t bark

or complain. He just loves to be around people,

and me most especially.

And that’s why I need to share one more bit of info with you…

His name’s not Reggie. He’s a smart dog, he’ll get used to it

and will respond to it, of that I have no doubt. But I just couldn’t

bear to give them his real name. But if someone is reading this …

well it means that his new owner should know his real name.

His real name is “Tank.” Because, that is what I drive.

I told the shelter that they couldn’t make “Reggie” available

for adoption until they received word from my company commander.

You see, my parents are gone, I have no siblings, no one I could’ve

left Tank with … and it was my only real request of the Army upon my deployment

to Iraq, that they make one phone call to the shelter …

in the “event” … to tell them that Tank could be put up for adoption.

Luckily, my CO is a dog-guy, too, and he knew where my platoon

was headed. He said he’d do it personally. And if you’re reading this,

then he made good on his word.

Tank has been my family for the last six years, almost as long

as the Army has been my family. And now I hope and pray that

you make him part of your family, too, and that he will adjust

and come to love you the same way he loved me.

If I have to give up Tank to keep those terrible people from coming

to the US I am glad to have done so. He is my example of service and

of love. I hope I honored him by my service to my country and comrades.

All right, that’s enough. I deploy this evening and have to drop this letter

off at the shelter. Maybe I’ll peek in on him and see if he finally got

that third tennis ball in his mouth.

Good luck with Tank. Give him a good home, and

give him an extra kiss goodnight – every night – from me.

Thank you,

Paul Mallory


I folded the letter and slipped it back in the envelope. Sure,

I had heard of Paul Mallory, everyone in town knew him,

even new people like me. Local kid, killed in Iraq a few

months ago and posthumously earning the Silver Star

when he gave his life to save three buddies.

Flags had been at half-mast all summer.

I leaned forward in my chair and rested my

elbows on my knees, staring at the dog.

“Hey, Tank,” I said quietly.

The dog’s head whipped up, his ears

cocked and his eyes bright.

“C’mere boy.”

He was instantly on his feet, his nails clicking on the hardwood floor.

He sat in front of me, his head tilted, searching for the name

he hadn’t heard in months. “Tank,” I whispered.

His tail swished.

I kept whispering his name, over and over, and each time,

his ears lowered, his eyes softened, and his posture relaxed

as a wave of contentment just seemed to flood him. I stroked

his ears, rubbed his shoulders, buried my face into

his scruff and hugged him.

“It’s me now, Tank, just you and me. Your old pal gave you to me.”

Tank reached up and licked my cheek.

“So whatdaya say we play some ball?”

His ears perked again.

“Yeah? Ball? You like that? Ball?”

Tank tore from my hands and disappeared into the next room.

And when he came back, he had three tennis balls in his mouth.

If you can read this without getting a lump in your

throat or a tear in your eye, you just ain’t right.


“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in

front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”

As good as a Story this is, it’s just that a story
