Dear Readers,

Today; I decided that I would come back to this site and start  blogging  again; since I started  blogging on my other site  at “My Crazy Jean World” I have been neglecting this site.And there are things that I would like to blog about that would not fit my other site.If you  would like to check out my other site you can here.

In addition; I have decided that I want to try to learn to do Virtual Assistance; which, I am sure that I can learn it; since I have learned how to be a pretty good blogger over the last few months.

I am even working on making my own pdf about ways to make money at home where I discuss  all the different ways that I have either made; or, I want to make money; in addition, what duties you will have to know and /or education.

Since I have left here I have also started doing affiliated links which I strongly  recommend doing this as soon as you start your blog.I think that at the present time I am not putting enough links in my blog; or, something because I am still not making money on this.Put I am hoping to in the near future. I also learned while I have been blogging on my other site is that you want at least have  five places that you can share your blog.I normally use more than  five, though.The five that I use are Pinterest, Twitter, StumbleUpon,  Facebook (I have a page for this instead of using my personal Facebook), Tumblr, Google+.I also post a lot in facebook blogging groups; which, I really like doing because I am able  to interact with other bloggers.

Finiall, thing that I learned while I have been blogging on my other site is that you want at least five places that you can share your blog.I normally use more than  five, though.The five that I use are Pinterest, Twitter, StumbleUpon,  Facebook (I have a page for this instead of using my personal Facebook), Tumblr, Google+.I also post a lot in facebook blogging groups; which, I really like doing because I  get to interact with other bloggers on Facebook.

Don’t forget to  remember to drop by and visit me at “My Crazy Jean World”.

My animals are more then just pets they are like family members to me.In fact; I don’t know if they need me more; or, if I need them more. My  two dogs are the light of my life because they are always doing something that is funny.In addition, they are a really a big help for my depression; especially, when I am really sad and lonely. One of  my dogs I have had for almost three years the other one is only about eight weeks old.In fact; we have not just got one but  two baby puppies because my brother decided to get her sister.

Baby Girl with Gizmo in the back.

I believe that a dog should be named according to the way it looks and how it acts. So this is the reason I named my dog Gizmo because to me she kind of reminds me of Gizmo off of the gremlins.With the way that the white comes down her face and also with her big pointy ears like Gizmo the Gremlin  also had. What do you think is not a cutie pie?

In addition; with the two puppies sometimes it is hard to sleep because it seems like at night is when they like to play the most.They love to chase each other on my bed and wrestle with each other.Although; they are just playing  they also love to try to bite my older dog Cody; which, he really does not find it funny.After they try biting  him he will  then growl a little bit  at them kind of like a warning to say,” hey stop that.” Then he will give me a look that makes me think that he is saying ” Good grief mom can’t you do something about these two little brats and make them behave.”

This is my little man Cody

Here is a picture of my little man Cody that was taken today  I have had him for  about three years.When I first received him as a gift  he was a year old and smaller then what he is now.I honestly don’t know what I would do without him because to me he is like my big baby. He is always around to cheer me up when I am depressed; or, if I  i don’t feel good he always knows.In addition; he is always their  when I am happy and cheerful and like all spoiled dogs he is always trying to be the center of attention.

In conclusion, my animals are family,best friends, and much more.If you are like me and think that your animal is also a part of your family then you can really understand the love and enjoyment that an animals can bring to your life.Also, you can understand  an animal is so much more then something to play with and love while they are young and then abandon when they get older. An animal is a lifetime commitment that needs to be treated as we would treat anyone that we truly care about with love and compassion.


I never noticed how hard it would be to build my blog. In fact, the main reason I decided to build a blog was because my ex had built him one and I felt a little dare like I could do mine better. So today I finaily got my host and domain site built now all I have to to is put my wordpress on it still not too sure what I want or have to talk about.

Guess I will figure it out sooner or later but hay at least I am learning a lot about how to but it all together today my biggest problem was getting my hosting and domain site connected after trying to do it on my own and instant messaging them I decided that I would get on the phone and keep bugging both companies until I was able to get done what I needed to get done.

I have realized having a good blog means being 30% determined, 30% working hard and 30% learning and 10% luck I guess.Because in order to have a good blog you have to be willing to put a Lot of work into it. To me it is like a full time job even though at this point I would say I am still a baby blogger since I only recently got serious with blogging.Even though I have a lot of ideals that I would like to blog about I have decided to blog about me and my crazy life that way I can actually blog about anything and everything and not worry about how am I going to be able to fit this and that into my blog.

Plus, I will  be able to see what does and does not work.Right now I am actually trying out what I should blog about in the next few weeks.If you have any ideals please send them my way.


When you think of Valentine what are the first thoughts that come to your mind.For me I think back when I was a child and in school we always gave out the whole class including are teachers Valentine’s Cards similar to this one:

cards

Then as time passes and we get older and start dating we normally look forward to a candle light dinner and a banquet of flowers.And of course almost every woman loves chocolate.

Nice Romantic Night

Every woman loves the thought of receiving roses and a romantic Valentine’s card

Are you in your late 20’s,30’s,40’s or older and wished that you had went on to college to get a degree in something that you would really loved to do; instead, of being at that boring old job that you are at. Well, I am here to tell you that you can do this and more.Yes, you can go back to school to get your degree in that career that you always wanted.

In fact, their are actually benefits in going back to school that you might not have even thought about; such as, advancing to a higher level at your job, setting a good example for your children,achieving a dream of having a college degree,being able to start that new career that you have always wanted, and more.

By going back to college you will be able to learn the knowledge that you will need to know  in order to achieve a higher paying position in the company that you are working in.Maybe you are a secretary or a housekeeper and you would like to become a manager or business executive; but in order to achieve that you are going to have to go back to college; so that you are able to gain the knowledge that you will need in order to have that career you always wanted.

But did you know that majority of colleges are now offering daycare on are near the campuses to help older students in returning back to college.Plus, with taking your children to the daycare that is on or near the campus they will be able to see what you are doing to help to improve their lives and yours; which, in return will help them a lot more then what you might be thinking because you will be teaching your children that it is never to late to reach your goal and dreams but also that all your hard work will pay off eventually.

In addition, a lot of colleges now have resources to be able to help you get a job on campus while your children our in the on campus daycare that majority of the colleges provide now. Plus, did you know that the workforce center will also help with either paying for your daycare or paying a percentage of your daycare. In fact, their are more programs now days to help non-traditional students with children then there ever has been before.Plus, their are a lot of grants and scholarships that only non-traditional students can receive.

Finally, their are so many reasons to go back to college;  why would you not go back to college? In summerizing, by going back to college you can benifit your life by being able to gain knowledge,money, diploma, and a better life for yourselve and your family.

 

 

 

 

 

 


        

Today I will be reviewing UserTesting is a website that pays people money to navigate website owners websites and to give feed back about how easy or not so easy it is to navigate their site.In order to start working for them you have to allow them to download their files to your computer which I really did not like that.In addition, they also have you test your voice to make sure that everything is working.

After that they walk you through their program in order to give you detailed instructions about what they want and expect for you to do.This part was very simple and easy to do even though my computer kept coming unplugged from the internet.This would not be a good job if you have background noises, since you mainly need to do this in a quite room and it is also a good ideal to have a headset with a microphone on it. in addition, it can take up to a week to see if you qualify to be a Usertester; if you do qualify Usertester will send you an email telling you that you qualify.In addition, UserTesting has jobs that are posted daily to be able to do.

When you work for UserTesting you will get paid $10 for each completed test that you do on a computer and $15 dollars for each testing you do on a smartphone.And a test consists of a 20 minute recording and answering four follow-up written questions. Very rarely (less than 1% of the time), a client asks for a refund because they’re dissatisfied with the user. You don’t get paid when this happens. Payments are made daily for jobs completed seven days earlier.

In addition,It can take up to a week to see if you qualify to be a Usertester; if you do qualify Usertester will send you an email telling you that you qualify.In addition, UserTesting has jobs that are posted daily to be able to do but you have to be fast to grab these jobs; since, these jobs are taken up fast by other users trying to make money.

Overall, this site is a nice site to make some extra money but in no way would you be able to support yourself only by using this website.
