First Book Review for 2019

No Comments

Good Saturday morning my followers. I just finished reading my first book of the year.

Once Upon a Christmas: A Harper’s Corner Series, Book Three

This was a good romance book. I really don’t want to give much of it away. If you want to see more about it go to the amazon link below.

You can get this book free with Kindle unlimited. or pay $1.99 for it. I think it is worth it. I got my book free through one of those advance reader copy review website.

I have a couple of books on Amazon as well. Check ou my profile page.

How much do you make affiliate marketing

No Comments

If you are good at it you might be able to make a lot of money from it.  Apparently, I have not been doing something right.  I have been researching for stuff and I have found this great website for affiliate marketing called Wealthy Affiliate

The free version gives you 9 free lessons. I did the lessons they were pretty good. They teach you how to make a website, how to add google adsense to your site and a lot of other great things you can do to make a website and get your business going.

You can join for free.

They do have a paid version where you can get a lot more out of it, but I think I will wait until later. They do have a sale for the first month for $19.00.
Until I start getting more sales I think I will wait.
See here is the comparison

I wish they would give you a month of more stuff.  The free one is good, but they don’t give you much time to interact with it.

While you are here check out this great book about affiliate marketing.

Harry Potter Fans

I’m doing this post for the Harry Potter fans.  I am a  big fan myself.  I am doing this as a fundraiser for my diabetes walk.

44,607 Harry Potter products on Amazon.  This is just a few items that I would love to purchase myself.

This is my first time that I have done an article on affiliate programs.  I have seen other sites where they have items that are on sale and she writes about it.  I have yet to learn that.  If you are a fan of Harry Potter as I am and you want the items please make a purchase through me.  I will get a percentage.  This will help for my walk for diabetes.

Have you ever wanted something and couldn’t get it.  Not right away anyway.  Last few nights after I went to bed I woke up about Ten o’clock.  It scared me a little bit because I wanted to sleep in more, which I probably could have, but I didn’t want to be late for work.  NOW last night I went to bed figuring I could sleep past ten o’clock since I have the day off.  Well after twelve midnight I went to bed figuring I would do that.  I tossed and turned most of the night.  I didn’t feel like I was going to be able to go to sleep.

“I would like to go home if you don’t mind.” I was telling my friend.

“It is dark outside, You are going to have to stay the night.”  I stayed the night.  Ready to go back home, I really didn’t want to stay the night, but somehow I fell asleep and the next thing I knew it was day light. My dog had pooped on their floor and I knew he hated when the dogs pooped in his house, He is not the only one.  “I am so sorry, I”ll clean it up.”  I cleaned up the mess.  I was looking for my shoes and socks,  somehow they had gotten scattered,  After a little while, I had found them.  Now beats me why I would put on two pairs of panties and I put on a pair of pants.  I got to go home.  I had realized it was a Monday,  “I need to get ready for work.” I called my boss and I told him I should be there n an hour.  I’m looking all over the place for my work clothes.  I find a few that are too small, this is taking longer then I though.  I find a skirt and put it on.  I am running late,  “You should not have told your boss you will be there in an hour.  Maybe you should have asked for more time.”  Later on, We went to a hardware store, (I have no idea why).  I”ve already missed my fair share of days at work, so now here is another day I will miss.  I’m like well I just as well miss it, I can not find my stuff…….

I woke up and I have this alarm clock I bought, these new ones I can’t hear worth a poop, they are so quite.  As I am waking up I hear a little beep beep beep beep.  So I turn off my alarm clock.  This one wakes up my husband so he can walk our son to the bus stop.  Not sure why I keep it set on my days off I never hear it until I’m awake.

So I had managed to fall asleep.  I thought I might be sleeping until ten o’clock or if not later.  Nope, not happening. Could be due to work last night.  I had a pretty easy night.  I only had a few rooms to clean and after a break, I helped out my friend with her stuff.

Now, maybe you are one of those fortunate people who has realized your dream already.  Good for you.  Maybe you didn’t have to work for it, maybe it just happened to you.  That is awesome.  Sometimes that is the way things goes.

As for me and probably several others,  we are still working on our dreams.  I have been reading a book  Think and Grow Rich –Napoleon Hill

It is about thinking of IDEAS and putting in your subconscious,  I have done that for years.  I’ve  got a dream of running my own business.  I do run my own business, sort of,  Lil Momma Gifts is my online store,  I’m sure that site will come in handy later.  I still want a brick and mortar store.  I have some items at a flea market as we speak.  Sales are going slow.  I’m sure it will do better if I had more items.  I’m working on that.

Now my big dream I am doing right now, as for my Lil Momma Gifts is to have a Step out for diabetes event for Searcy, Ar, which is my hometown.  I have the idea on what I want to do, I just need the team to help me put this together.

 

 

 

One dream come true

I have always wanted to meet Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison.  My sister was a teenager at the time and I like the same music she liked.  She like KISS, I loved Poison.  I am 39 years old and on October 14, 2016, at The Arkansas Sate Fair Bret Michaels was there.  As soon as I found out that he was going to be in concert I wanted to order the tickets.  I had to wait a little while.  But as soon as I was able to I bought the tickets to get into the gate and the VIP deck for Bret Michaels.  That was like 3 months before.  That felt like a long wait, felt like forever.   I had saved up the money within the last year.  I used this money for the meet and greet and the limo ride.  You will see the limo a little later.

    Look at me, I so happy.  I would post the picture with my family on here, but my dear husband does not want his picture on the internet.   I respect him for that.  It was a great picture too of my family and Bret Michaels.  (I wonder if I put his name on here that it will show up in the search engine for people to find it.  My blog is still new and I have no followers just yet.) This was something.  First time I saw Bret was in Hot Springs, (magic springs)  concert was great but the feeling I had before the show was strange.  My dear husband sits in his chair along with our son.   This  time around it was awesome.  My family and I got to hang out together and chat with Bret Michaels for about 2 or 3 minutes.  I wish it could have been longer.   Next year, maybe he will return,   I’m going to save my money and see if we can do another Meet and greet with him.  Or unless somehow he seems us before then.  I gave him (Bret Michaels) a copy of a magazine that I had done an article in.   Called

 Anyone ever rode in a limo to a state fair.   That would be me and my family.  The Chauffeur said that was the first time anyone has ever paid to have a limo drive them to a fair.

It was nice.  Wasn’t extremely special or anything.  It was like riding in a car.  But it was so comfortable and sweet.   Got a few interesting looks.  Maybe someday we can do this again.

Someday I would love to get away a few passes and a meet and greet to see Bret Michaels,  maybe even let the person ride in a limo with us, but I can’t do that unless I get more sales.  The sell that I get,  some of the proceeds will be going for diabetes.    If you want to see Bret Michaels and you can’t afford it I so understand,  It has been hard for me to save money before I got my job I would have never gotten to go to this concert.   I had put $20.00 into a Christmas club account with the bank that I use.   Just recently I had increased the amount to $25.00.

I know it is hard to save up sometimes and this is a reason why I want to help someone that is well deserving to get to see Bret Michaels in concert,   but I won’t be able to do this on my own.  If you or someone you know wants to see Bret Michaels in concert help me raise money so I can give you a chance to win tickets to his next concert. by sharing my blog or going to my website  or you can even donate to here or even My team Bret Michaels page

That is it for now.  Please share my blog, like my Facebook page for Lil Momma Gifts and check out the websites that I had shared here. Until next time.

God Bless.

Hopes and dreams

Have you ever wanted to run your own business? What about have your own blog? I sort of have both, although I’m not sure if I am doing a good job or not. I have not sold anything online in a long time. Here is a quick lesson I learned, though. I was making a granny square Christmas afghan. I put it up on eBay for sale. I thought I would have it done by the time it sold. I was mistaken. I sold the afghan. I’m just fortunate the person who bought it off of me was patient with me. I worked hard for the next month to get that thing done. I’m not going to post anything for sale before I am finished making it. Lesson learned.

I don’t know what I would want to do if it were not for my dreams. I am hoping that someday I can get an actual store for Lil Momma Gifts. I sell things now and them in person. I ordered a candle fundraising kit. It said not up front cost. Well, I have to sell 150 of them in order for them to waive the $65.00 shipping. Honestly, now I am a bit afraid to even try to sell the candles. What if I don’t sell enough and have to pay the $65 dollars. Have you ever done that before? Yes, my self-confidence is a little low. But if you tried and tried and tried and feel like giving up. Well, sometimes I just take a break from things and find other stuff to enjoy for the time being.
I love to read and I enjoy writings. My grammar may suck, but you know I found this really cool program called Grammarly. I like it. I just hope it makes me a better writer. I just have to be patient. If it is meant for me to have my business that it shall happen. I don’t know when. But this is all I can dream of. Just don’t know what to do otherwise.

I just created this page. I was wondering how to become a part of Team Bret Michaels. Now, I finally have a page. https://www.crowdrise.com/ruthpearson2 (I think the 2 is for the fundraiser page and my first name is the profile or the about my page. Not sure why they did it like that.) Check it out when you have time.

I’m passionate about learning about diabetes and how to live a more healthy lifestyle. My mom was a diabetic and she was unable to get the help she needed. I know my father did the best he could, the best he knew how. He didn’t know much about that either. A few years after both my parents had passed my aunts and uncles were becoming diabetes or being diagnosed with diabetes. My mom was in her 40’s when she found out she was a diabetic. I’m almost 40.
So I’m expecting somewhere within the next ten years they could say you are a diabetic. Yes, it is hard trying to figure out what to do. You are probably like oh my God what am I suppose to do. All I can say is take baby steps.
I know I am. With Lil Momma Gifts I hope to raise money for myself and if I get a certain dollar amount I want to help others who are in the same situation my mom was in. I want to be able to help them out. Right now I have to learn to eat better for me so I can later help out you.

If you want to follow along with me go ahead. Sometimes we just have to practice. I’ve had my little business since 2011. It is going slow and I am surely not rich, but I will mention and talk to people about my business. I’m thinking later on if I do get me a place that people will be waiting at the door. Wondering what the hype is all about.

I’m grateful I got me a “real job” it does help. Now I’m doing ok with my money, but I would like to do better. With practice, I’m sure I can get this mastered. I talked to my bank and got a Christmas club savings. They say save money for yourself first, so this is what helps me.

I also have a few “get paid to read email” sites that I belong to. I’m sure the more I talk about it the more people I can get. I get several emails a day from them and I get pennies for each one. Sure I only have like $10. or $15.00 with one, but that is a start and later on I can cash out my money. You have to have like $30.00 in order to request your check. I’ll share with you a few of them that I am with. I have gotten paid before and that is why I am sharing. I won’t share anything unless I have experience from them. But just so you know, what works for me might not work as well for you. You have to try different things out to find out what you can do.

Obviously.  I was just thinking about my blog here.  I don’t know about you but I’m kind of tired of reading all about how I made. $1,000.00 or $100,000.00 off of a blog, by doing this and doing that.   I’ve tried a lot of things and had no luck with make a thousand a month other the get a job. Now I do have a few sites that I have joined quite a while back where I got some money from.  My points for starters.  Is one of the first ones that I have joined.

I have done a blog before, usually, don’t write to much. I’m going to do the best I can. You will have to bare with me as I am new to this. I love writing, but my grammar isn’t always the greatest.

I have been studying diabetes for quite some time now,  although I feel as if I have not studied all that much.   As things start to go I’ll share with you what I have learned.
