It's been a while since my last post and there are several reasons for that. I was constantly sick for over a month. The month began with a sinus infection and the doctor gave me antibiotics for that. Then, right when I finished the antibiotics, my husband and I both caught some bad virus that started out with a very horrible sore throat. It felt like strep, but we didn't have any fever, so I'm sure it was a viral infection. The only thing to do was rest--I slept so much during that time that now I'm ready to be on the go! This stretch of illness put a real damper on my writing here. But now I'm OK and getting back to normal.
Another reason, besides illness, I've not posted so much lately is that I have been experimenting with other ways to make money online. I have a couple of wonderful clients with whom I work on a seasonal basis, but would like to also have some regular clients. I've been working online, in a small way, for a couple of years now, and thought it was definitely time to start branching out a bit more than this blog and my Zazzle and Amazon stores. A friend of mine, Hospitalera, told me it's very possible to make money online with no cash layout. I'm giving this philosophy a try. I've begun writing on a couple of different platforms--EzineArticles (with only one article published there, so far, as a means of promoting my online writing), writing on HubPages, and have even started another blog called Sher's Hub List. This new blog is a support for my writing at HubPages--and provides links back to my hubs. Anyway, I'm viewing these experiments as the equivalent of printing up notices and putting them on light poles and message boards. The more places you are visible online is a good thing...I'm hoping! I have ideas for more blogs and further writing on HubPages, and some other sites where it's possible to sell your writing online. It's a process that takes time and experimenting. That's OK...and I'm doing it. We'll see how it all goes. All in all it's a learning experience, and that's a very good thing.
That's what I've been up to lately, and will definitely keep posting here. There is more of Anne's story that would be fun to share, and some other posts to write sharing life here in the Czech Republic. That's all for now...take care.
Have a great day!
