Working from homeI have been trying to get traffic to this new website. It has been a lot harder than I was expecting. I have spent hours trying to get into directories. Doing this only let me know that a lot of them want money to be listed. I guess everyone has to make a living and successfully working from home is always trying to show other people how to make money and that is there way. Up to this point most of my money from working from home has been from real estate. I have been buying and selling real estate projects for over ten years now. I am now trying to concentrate more on the internet business side of things. I am working on affiliate marketing to see if it pans out. I will keep everyone up to speed on how things are going. So far I have only had a few people to the website.

Up to now, I have bought the website as you can tell. I used godaddy to buy the website and have been very pleased with there sevice, at least up until now. I paid about $10 a month for the domain name (website name) and about $15 a month for the blog hosting service. The down side to this is that you have to pay everything up front. You can elect to buy it by the month or by the year/years. Take a look and see what you think if you are interested in starting your own website. Make sure you do your own research on everything before you sign the bottom line. Their website link is on my page to the right.

I installed wordpress (a program/software that allows you to operate the site). This task can be as simple or complicated as you want to make it. I have choosen to use a more complicated theme (application that tells wordpress how to act).  This is an ongoing, ever revolving construction site. I am constantly trying new things to make the website better. Let me know what you think.

I have tried to use google adwords but so far have been rejected due to an infraction of there policies. I have tried to fix the problem on numerous occasions, but can’t get google to take me out of the suspended status.

Keep in touch if you want to continue to follow my new blog website.

Would you like to start working from home but you don’t know where to start? Don’t worry it’s easy to learn the basics.

How to Choose the Right Online Business for You 

To be truly successful, you will need to choose the right online business for you. It’s a whole lot easier to make money doing something you enjoy, so think about your hobbies, interests, skills and experience.

Could you turn any of your ideas into a successful online business that would allow you to work from home? If not, perhaps there is something you have always wanted to learn more about. So why not give it a go? If you’re really passionate about what you do, you’re less likely to give up when the going gets tough.

Do You Need Your Own Product or Service? 

In the beginning, you may worry that you don’t have the necessary skills or resources to develop your own product or service to sell. But don’t let that put you off. Many successful home business owners start out by selling other people’s products through affiliate marketing and make commissions as high as 50%.

Do You Need Your Own Website?

You should aim to have your own website eventually, but for some types of online businesses, it isn’t essential from the beginning. If you want to sell your own products online, you can promote them on sites like Zazzle, Etsy and Ebay.

And if you’re interested in selling your own services, you can find customers on sites like Elance, Rent-Acoder and PeoplePerHour.

But if you are serious about building a successful online business which allows you to work from home, you should aim to have your own website as soon as you can. It really isn’t all that complicated or as expensive as you might think.

The Basic Tools You Need to Build Your New Website

  • A Domain Name: This is the address that people will use to reach your online business.  For example, A domain name like will cost you around $10.
  • A Hosting Account: You will need a hosting account to store your website online. It’s easy to find hosting accounts online for bargain prices and most allow you to pay monthly. I would recommend
  • A Website: If you’re not at all technical, don’t let this put you off, there is plenty of help online. There are many tools available to simplify the process of building your own website. You don’t need even need to learn any complicated coding. And if you don’t want to build your own website yourself, there are plenty of creative people online who can do it for you.

Don’t let technical worries and lack of experience keep you from trying. If you’re determined to escape the rat race and start a successful online business, you can get started in no time, work from home and begin with minimal start up costs.
