Have You Been Scoping Yet

Have You Been Scoping Yet

Periscope is the relatively new social medium that is growing each and every day (Owned by Twitter and launched on March 26, 2015). I tried my first scope sometime last week and I’m sure happy that it disappeared after 24 hours if you don’t save it for repurposing to YouTube or your own blog.


Donna Merrill (@Donna Merrill on Periscope) introduced me to this great lady, Delilah Taylor and from what I can see and tell, Delilah has become quite an expert in using Periscope.


On Periscope you can find her @Delilah Taylor – The Couch Queen. Delilah also has a great Periscope Basic Training Video on YouTube. 


I’m having a few issues with my Android and my planned scoping schedule but that’s just another “small hurdle” to overcome. I plan on providing updated information on Periscope about Power Affiliate Club (PAC), the Shortcut Quick Tip Videos, writing, advertising and marketing tips. 


I wrote a post on the Power Affiliate Club, going a little bit more in detail about Periscope… Periscope, Reviewing and Learning  


You can find me on Periscope @MonnaEllithorpe and I will be saving my “Scopes” to my YouTube Channel and/or right here on my blog. 


I just finished the first Scope on the PAC Spirit Week Day #1 Member. Oops, the writing on the screen is backwards. Oh well, you live and learn. You can watch it here on Periscope  or later I will be uploading it to my YouTube channel.  


I do remember that Delilah had mentioned something about “things being backwards.” I will be watching her basic Periscope video again. LOL


If you missed the Scope from the above link, then catch the replay on YouTube

How To Change Light Colored Text On Blogs You Read


HowToChangeLightColoredTextOnBlogFor some reason or another it seems that using a gray or light gray text on a white background of blog themes has become the norm.  I know I have mentioned this before and I know these tired old eyes sometimes have a hard time reading when I have been working a lot during the day but to come across a blog you want to read and the fact that you have to highlight the text to read it, is not a good business move in my opinion.

Biz Lady Journal – April 8, 2013

Biz Lady Journal – April 8, 2013

Well it’s been quite a few days since I have updated my blog.  Mostly due to neck and back problems putting me down and playing catch up when I can get back on line.  Seeing my chiropractor now, so should be okay for a while now.

Completed Projects Today:

  • Completed daily checks of email, sites and programs.
  • Hootsuite Tweets are scheduled for the day (although later than usual).
  • Inbox Dollars email done.  I may receive a few more during the day.
  • The other day I did make a short video for my Squidoo lens;  How to Make a Mini Scrapbook Album – Not a whole lot of views so far but again, being off line and out of commission does tend to let the momentum die down or in other words; “Out of sight, out of mind.”  One day things will pretty much stay at an even keel when I get things running and they have been running on their own for a while.
  • As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I am making myself learn how to use Evernote.  I am beginning to see how valuable this tool is when you work online.  Although I am still not totally comfortable with using it yet, that will come in time.  The search feature has come in handy many times since I’m learning and sometimes forget where I have filed something.  The main thing is to absolutely remember to put in keywords or tags when you are saving, so you will be able to find it by searching those keywords or tags even if you cannot remember where you saved it.
  • Remember a while back I mentioned about purchasing an Alphasmart 3000?  Well that is working out great too. I work with it at night before going to sleep and then I can transfer the notes directly into; now get this… Into Evernote.  I had no idea the two would be compatible.  A word of advice though, when you are transferring data to your computer BE CAREFUL what program you have on screen.  I just assumed once I started the transfer I could go ahead and work on something else.  NOT>>>.  The transferring data started printing out in a Skype window.  You have never seen anyone unplug something as fast as I did and then delete the Skype message.  Yep, you got it, when I had hit the enter key in the Alphasmart 3000, it hit enter while transferring and therefore my personal journal went live on Skype for a few seconds.  I am just so relieved that it was in a room that was not active at the time and more than likely no one saw it.  At least I’m telling myself that.  No one saw it; No one saw it!
  • I am also learning to work with the plugin for WordPress called Wishlist where you can set up a membership site.  This is for the Social Pro Revolution group on Facebook that teaches social media branding and list building by Dave D. Williamson.  We don’t have everything set up yet but it is coming along.  So many people have joined our group in the last few weeks and are learning so much about branding and building relationships.  Take some time to check it out.  I promise you won’t be sorry.
  • Per Doctor’s orders, I’m taking it easy tonight and closing up shop and will read for a while before going to sleep.

I hope everyone has a great evening.

Internet Marketing With Smart Goals

Internet Marketing With Smart Goals

As an internet marketer for the last 4 to 5 years, testing and trying out and working with different businesses in order to create passive internetmarketingwithsmartgoalsincome has been my main goal, that will result in me being able to work totally from the internet.  We read, we learn, we download, we create, we think, we write notes, etc. but UNLESS you start internet marketing with smart goals, then you will be pretty much like myself and many others have been for a while; “spinning your wheels.”


Making money has been sporadic for me in the past but then again I also have no one to blame but myself.  I always managed to come up with excuses of why I can or cannot do something.  The main problem is that I did not believe in myself which has affected my success in many more ways than one.


The longer I work on the internet and the closer I am getting to my personal goals and financial goals of being independently working from the internet by June 30, 2012, I’ve realized I’ve been my own worst enemy.  It seems once I set my deadline, things started to fall in place.  I have made myself accountable to everyone that I have told about my goals and I hate to let myself or anyone else down.


internetmarketingwithsmartgoals-1Internet marketing and smart goals are not just words that you throw around and I don’t care how many fancy cars you stand in front of and say “Hey, I’m making a living on the internet.”  You have to do the work, walk the walk and talk the talk; they have to be words you live and breathe in order to get to your personal goals and financial goals.


I have quite a few friends that I value their opinion very much.  Also I’ve realized I do believe in myself and it’s not always necessarily the program you choose, it’s the attitude you have and the mentors you work with;  put this all together, this is what is going to get YOU and I to our independent status that we so richly deserve.


internetmarketingwithsmartgoals-3Creating passive income in internet marketing is the essence of network marketing and affiliate marketing.  If you are not showing yourself as a true leader who believes in yourself, then no one else will either.  As you may or may not know, I am a widow and have had a pretty hard time of it since my husband passed away.  I still miss him dearly but finally realized and in the words of another good friend of mine, “Holli Rovenger,”  I have to “pull my my big girl panties” and get to work towards my personal goals.



As they say “don’t put all of your eggs in one basket” especially on the internet.  Passive income from many sources is your goal, along with providing valuable information to your readers and provide it with integrity and honesty to the best of your ability.
The main point I am trying to make is even though I have had this dream of internet marketing and affiliate marketing for a while, it has never quite come together until I started believing in myself and actually taking action in what I have learned over the years.
In return, I would like to help make that dream come true for others who also may be struggling.  I have a few income sources that are working; maybe all would work for you, maybe none or maybe just one. You will never know unless you check them out and/or call me or contact me; Contact Monna
Unless you decide to “pull up your big girl panties or big boy pants” and start taking action, absolutely NOTHING is going to happen.
I hope you have found this post helpful and encouraging.  I would appreciate any shares or tweets you care to spread around.
To Your Success…

TagVillage Update – Live Tag Trading

Below is a video that my partner, Dave D. Williamson made while I was tag trading on TagVillage on Thursday, 2/10/2011.  Tag trading can change your way of thinking about earning a living from working on the internet.

I have had people ask me about the money in TagVillage.  To answer that question, TagVillage is still in beta, so there are still “tweaks” to be made and improvements and additions to come throughout the whole system as it grows and adds more exciting features.

The money shows in the back office of TagVillage when you fund your account, buy tags and/or keywords and when another member buys tags and/or keyword from you, but until TagVillage is out of beta, it has yet to be determined when the payouts will be made but there is no doubt in my mind that the payouts will be forthcoming and continue.

TagVillage works on the basis of credits.  Each credit is worth $1.00 each.   It is simple and straight forward.  There are no catches or gimmicks.

Sit back and enjoy watching our “first day” trading results with Tag Village from the comfort of your home!

Now that you have watched the live trading in TagVillage and have seen first-hand how easy it is, come join me and let me show YOU how to do the keyword research so you can search for and buy “HOT” keywords so you can profit from them from now on.
