Marketing Resources To Make Life Easier

Today I’m going to talk about marketing resources to make your business life a little more stress free.

Traffic Browser

Traffic browser is a surfing platform that you download to help your surfing to be more streamlined. I’m going to put a video below showing you how it works. If you want to sign up here is the link Traffic Browser

Traffic Codex

This next one is for when you don’t want to click for credits. You just put in the website and it finds promo codes for you. Of course the site has to be working with Traffic Codex to get the codes. It also has a browser add on that automatically detects if there is a promo code for that site. It’s very useful for days when I just want to get it over with. Here is the link to sign up Traffic Codex

Truckload Of Ads

This one is just like Traffic Codex except there isn’t a browser add on and you have to search for the codes manually. But like I said not all of the sites work with Traffic Codex so this is for when that happens. Here’s the link to sign up for this one Truckload Of Ads

Well those are my resources to make marketing a little bit easier. I hope it helps.

Thanks

Why I Started Online Marketing and Blogging

I started online marketing because I hated every job I ever had except when I worked in my family’s store.

My mom started out doing floral arrangements and drawing after she was in a wreck not long after my older brother was born and her back and pelvis was broken so she was deemed disabled. So she had no choice in the matter about what work she did.

She later branched out to doing craft shows and after that opened a convenience store to help out our neighborhood.

Then in 1992 my dad was diagnosed with bone cancer and died 2 weeks later in April. She decided it was best to stop because he was the only person helping her.

She also stopped because I had started working with my dad at the chalk plant where he was the foreman. I hated that job but I had a job working at Hardee’s that I hated also. I quit working at the chalk plant a few months after my dad died.

I wish I could say that was the worst job I ever had but it wasn’t. I started work at Wal-Mart in 1994 and not surprisingly I hated that job too but I stayed there for 5 years and then quit after my son was diagnosed as being developmentally delayed and my mom said I needed to be at home with him. Needless to say I didn’t argue with her because again I hated working there.

Every job I ever had I didn’t get along with anyone except for a few people which made working at those jobs unbearable. My job at Hardee’s was the worst though because the people always talked about me behind my back, even the manager. I know right? It was like being back in school. I hated everyone except a couple of people I worked with. I quit that job too and tried to go back to High school but I’m not good at making friends so I quit again after a few months.

I started the job at Hardee’s because my parents made me when I decided I didn’t want to go to school. I was being bullied to the point of wanting to commit suicide but my parents didn’t understand. I had no idea that working a job was exactly the same. I was naive and thought they would be fully functioning adults but no they were still children just pretending to be adults.

It was later after my son was born and we finally got a computer and internet service that I thought there has to be a way to make money online. I started searching and found that I could sign up for surfing websites and make money just showing my affiliate page. It was easy back then. Now you can’t do that anymore.

I did that off and on a few times then the last time I decided to do it everything had changed. Now thery were saying you had to build a list to make money and have a blog so I did that with a few places until I found the company I’m with now that is inexpensive and a wonderful company. The best I’ve been with so far.

Anyway that’s how I got started in my business.

I Gave Up On My Childhood Dream

I Gave Up On My Childhood Dream

When I was a little girl I dreamed of becoming a wildlife biologist. My mom always made a point to tell me that I could be anything I wanted when I grew up but the school told me you can’t be that if you’re not good at math.

The problem with that is I see people every day overcoming educational struggles to become what they dreamed of.

I still hold on to that dream and so does my daughter and one things for sure I will never let anyone tell her you can’t be that because you’re not good at math.

I will definitely be enrolling in college to get my degree to become a wildlife biologist specializing in big cats, mainly lions.

I chose Lions because I share a kindred spirit with them. Now mind you I love all animals and I watch a lot of different documentaries about animals. There’s just something about big cats that make me happy.

Maybe it’s their power, or beauty or their family ties. Maybe it’s everything. Yeah it’s everything about them. I love everything about these magnificent animals and I will do everything in my power to save them from extinction and to preserve them in the wild and not caged up.

I will pursue my dream and I will achieve it.

Is there a dream you want to pursue? Let me know in the comments and remember you can achieve it and never forget that.

Thanks!

Why Are You Doing Boring Stuff?

Why Are You Doing Boring Stuff?

That’s what my daughter asked when she saw me writing down bills and to my surprise this came out of my mouth

It’s not boring to me.

I couldn’t believe it!

I enjoy budgeting?! No way!

But as I sit here and think about it, it’s true, I enjoy budgeting and now that I think about it I always have I just didn’t realize it until my daughter asked me that so enlightening question.

I also realized I think about it more than I should. All month after I’ve done the bills I think about it, night and day. I look through calculating, looking to see where I can save more money. It’s so crazy!

I still can’t believe it! The reason I’m so amazed is because math was never my strong suit but then budgeting only requires adding and subtracting and I’ve always enjoyed that.

So now my question is, should I pursue career designed for people who enjoy budgeting and also what careers would that be?

Let me know in the comments.

Thanks and have a great day.

Why Hashtags Are So Important

Why Hashtags Are So Important

Last night I decided to do an experiment on Instagram with hashtags with my blog post. On one I used no hashtags and the other I used hashtags and the following is the result so far with the experiment.

With the one above I used hashtags and as you can see it has gotten a lot of likes. If you click it you will be taken to the post and see it in real time and also some of my other posts too.

With the one above I didn’t use any hashtags and it has gotten one like so far. If you click it you will be taken to that post to see it in real time also.

This is why using hashtags in your posts is so important and also if you use something like crowdfire that would be good too. It doesn’t have to be crowdfire, that’s just what I prefer because it keeps all your hashtags saved so you’re not having to use something like notepad to keep up with them and that’s a lot easier for me.

I hope you got value from this and if you did please like, share and comment.

Thanks

Why Is Being Consistent SO Hard?!

Why Is Being Consistent SO Hard?!

I mean really?!

I haven’t done anything in a month. It has gotten out of control. I should be advertising but I got sucked down the YouTube rabbit hole and haven’t come out until now.

I have convinced myself that I can do a vlog and what have I done? Everything except vlog lol.

They make it look so easy but when I try to edit I have no idea how to use the software I have. Plus they don’t explain how to use it very well in their videos. It’s so frustrating.

I am however going to eventually learn how to edit and get that ball rolling because I feel it will be much easier for me to get my thoughts out through video than trying to write. I’m not a very efficient typer at all. I type using one finger lol.

Also my daughter is very interested in vlogging and I would really love to do some with her.

I think my first one will be of our excursion to the Christmas Parade in our town next Saturday. I’ve seen videos of it on YouTube but they are of just the parade but I’m going to do it like a vlog and then go from there and just start making it a daily routine.

I think it will be good for both of us.

Thanks for reading and if you enjoyed this please like, share and comment.

P.S. Let me know in the comments if you have ever thought about starting a vlog or if you have any recommendations on editing software and cameras that are easy to use.

I figured Out My Youtube Name!

I figured Out My Youtube Name!

I don’t know if y’all (yes I’m southern lol) have read my post from a few days ago I Need Help Picking Out A Good YouTube Name! But I figured out my Youtube name!

That Crazy Cat Lady!

Yes I love cats, and I am most definitely not a people person, and I would rather be with them than anyone else, except for my daughter of course. She’s the only other person I enjoy being around.

I am very introverted so my cats are the only living beings that get me, so the name suits me.

Thank you for your help.

I Need Help Picking Out A Good YouTube Channel Name!

I Need Help Picking Out A Good YouTube Channel Name!

I came up with Owens Family Values but I don’t really like that name and also a lot of people have the word Values in the name of their YouTube channel and I would really like for mine to be unique.

I came up with these too:

  • My Crazy Family
  • Mary’s Crazy Family
  • Owens Family Adventures
  • Mary’s Adventurous Family
  • Mary’s Vlog
  • Mary’s Family Vlog

That’s all that I could come up with for now. I just need to pick one that I really like. If you have any suggestions please let me know by contacting me or just leave a comment below.

Here’s my YouTube Channel so you can check out the videos to give you an idea of my family to help me with a good name.

I Got My Original YouTube Channel Back!

I Got My Original YouTube Channel Back!

Well I got started late today because I was so darn excited about getting my original YouTube channel back from 8 years ago that I sat up half the night getting it ready. Boy those videos of my kids when they were younger and life hadn’t kicked them in the butt were the best! I really miss those days.

So in celebration of getting access to it back today’s post is just going to be the link to that channel for y’all to enjoy my kids from their glory days. The videos are from 2009 and maybe 2008 or 2010, I’m not sure about the ones where I didn’t say the date so don’t quote me on that.

Any way here’s the link! Enjoy!
