Looking for Input – Investing With Little Cash

Generating Income from Home

Generating Income from HomeThis is sort of a continuance on my previous post series, but this time I’m asking for input!  As you know, we’ve been dabbling with different ways to invest for the long-term, things that I can manage.  So, I’m asking – what do YOU do?  If you are in the situation we are in – we can put a little aside here and there, but it’s not like I have thou$ands to invest.  I’ve heard a lot about “hot penny stocks,” but haven’t really done much looking besides a little web window shopping.  Continue reading →

Blog-Less in Seattle No More

It’s great!  Finally I’m back online.  I’m sure you were all just absolutely crushed at my absence.

Truth is, it was ALL MY FAULT.  My domain expired this month so I wanted to transfer it to a different registrar, thinking it would be a one-day process.  Continue reading →

The story on why I stopped eating grains, and what happened as a result

grain free

grain freeSo a while ago I’d mentioned that I’d made some major dietary changes.  If you must categorize what I have done, I am following a mostly primal diet which in a nutshell involves eating no grains and no processed sugar.  There’s a lot of people who eat a primal diet (which is very similar to paleo) who are more restricted than I, but I am trying to make it easy on myself for now.

Maremma Sheepdogs

Little Rambo (front), Ballerina Girl (back) and Gus & Clara, the Maremma Sheepdogs that protect my parents' livestock.

You know, I realize this title is a little deceptive.  It should really be “for the WANNABE homesteader.”  Though I think non-wannabe homesteaders would also benefit from doing this stuff.  But in any case, now we’ve discussed the things I’m working on.

Generating Income from Home Part 1 – Internet Marketing

Generating Income from Home

Generating Income from HomeAlright so the biggest thing I’ve been working on, and working on the most, has been different ways of making income from home using internet marketing.  I started about a year & half ago, trying to figure out how to do this.  It’s hard to differentiate between stuff that actually works and scams that are out there just in order to make a buck off you, the person trying to make a buck!  There is REAL information out there, however.  And the beauty of internet marketing is that it is often residual income – you set it up and let it go and it continues to make money with very little maintenance.  I much prefer this method rather than trying to make money with Swagbucks or online surveys where you make a few dollars per hour.  The beautiful thing about the residual income is that it frees up time, so when we are finally able to move out to the property, we can work at it as we have time and have as much time for homesteading projects as we want to.  And many of those homesteading projects will make money as well!  It’s win-win.  So, here’s what I’ve tried so far.
