April 2020 ~ Working From Home is Still a Struggle But Proving to be Fruitful
My last post in this community is dated February 2018. I had just started my Joie de Vivre Magazine lifestyle blog. I have maintained my social connections with many of the members here. But I just have not been active at this site.
2018 was a good year. 2019 was a better year, except for the month of December. My husband passed away. His heart finally gave out of him. I am blessed to have been married for 4 decades. I carry on because I know that's what he expects me to do.
So now it's 2020 and we are in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most people are staying at home and working at home. For me, there were no adjustments to be made because I've been working from home since 2007.
My newest project is publishing a newsletter: T_Fox's Newsletter . (I'm working on coming up with a more catchy name. That one sounds kind of drab, huh? LOL.)
There is a super easy-to-use tool provided by Substack, Inc . You can create an account free. You can set up your newsletter as a free subscription or a paid subscription. I set my newsletter up as a free subscription. My plan IF I get enough subscribers is to charge a small monthly fee or an annual fee. This is a long-term plan. After all, ever since ad blockers, it has been very difficult to trying to monetize your websites and blogs. In addition, this health crisis has totally changed the way everybody does business.
My short-term plans include continuing with my work-at-home efforts that are showing some profit. These projects include:
article writing ( HUBPages , Medium , and Vocal.Media ),
affiliate marketing (mainly via Twitter ),
social blogging and forums ( Virily and Forum Coin ),
dabbling in bitcoins , and
So as you can see … I haven't been here. But I have been staying busy.
Until next time. Take care. Wish you all the best!

I am sure that I will in due time. I started this project on March 30, 2020. I am currently promoting it via social media. The Substack link is respected by the search engines. So I have hope that this project won't be a waste of time.1
I appreciate your condolences.
