    Checks in the mail

    I don’t know how many of you have considered affiliate marketing as a way to earn some extra income, but today I received a check in the mail from Rakuten/Linkshare and wanted to share info about them with you. I have selectively applied for and been approved to participate in affiliate programs that match my own interests: art, gardening, and education. For example, I’m an affiliate for Coursera, Udemy, Kobo, Rodale, Fivver, and Photos.com/Getty Images through Linkshare.

    Easy Way to Space Seeds or Plants

It has taken a few months, but I have settled in to a new lifestyle as community college professor, working artist, and urban farmer.

    My new training site launches

    with a course for Avon Reps September 19, 2016 at 4 p.m. my first course hosted and delivered from my own website launched. Content Writing for Avon Reps utilizes the Coursepress and Marketpress WordPress plugins from WPMUDEV. Incredible Functionality Just five years ago I would not have entertained the idea of delivering training from my own website. Some options were available, but none of them provided the type of experience I wanted for my students. Coursepress meets my needs and beyond. You can use the free option of the plugin or upgrade to the pro version.  Here are some of the features I love: Embed video directly into the course…
