Making Money, Building Lists and Getting Reviews

Making Money Building Lists

Making Money online and offline doing the things that you want has got to be the best way to get the life of your dreams right? Well that’s what I am striving for.

It is now more important than ever to ramp up my money money efforts. Last week, there were rumblings at my workplace. The company has been sold and it looks like there will not be enough hours for all the staff. That means those on casual contracts (like me), could see their hours reduced to an insufficient amount. So I need to be more determined about getting my own stuff working.

My Money Making Efforts – Online

I am working away at building up content for my PLR store, The PLR Boutique. People are purchasing articles, which is great.

I need to ramp up my work here so that I can increase my earnings. Today I have released a new article pack for the Halloween niche market. I hope that sales go well.

Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor – Kindle Book Offer & Meet Two Great Bloggers

Free Book Offer

Last month I took part in the Book Blog Train, where I was able to advertise the fact that I was giving away free copies of two of my books.

Well today I am doing something a little similar. This journey is called The Blog Hop. This is where you are invited by a fellow writer / blogger to write a post that answers four questions about the writing process. You then link to 2 or 3 other writers who will then give their answers to those questions and then link to other writers and so on and so forth.

Well the lovely Patti Stafford asked me to take part in this blog hop. My first reaction was to say – “No Way – I am not a writer!” This could be somewhat disputed since I have published a few short books available on Amazon and I write and sell articles. It’s just that I don’t think of myself as a writer. Weird right?

Anyway, once I calmed down and took a deep cleansing breath, I accepted the invitation and here I am.

My Memories of Working as a Summer Camp Counsellor in America

10 Reasons To Work as a Summer Camp Counsellor in America – Victoria Virgo

Way back when mobile phones were toys for the rich and for the city boys, I went to work at a Summer camp in America. I kept a daily diary while I was there because I didn’t want to forget the experience. I finally got round to typing up the thing, getting a kindle book cover made and I uploaded it to Amazon.

My Summer Camp Diary is Now a Book

Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor - Working at an American Summer Camp - Victoria VirgoThe book is  Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor – Working at an American Summer Camp. It is a few years now and the kids that I looked after most probably all have their own kids now. Maybe they are even sending their children to the same camp that they used to see as their Summer home every July and August.

I went to a fairly well to do summer camp. I knew from the get go that I did not want to be living in a tent, or have to use some sort of primitive looking outside toilet. No, I was going to work at a camp but I wanted a proper bed, a room with doors and windows, an inside toilet and hot and cold running water.I am happy to say that I found such a camp, situated just outside New York.
