My husband graciously pays for my websites, and blogs. So I decided last year around September that I was going to look into affiliate marketing for my sites. Then I had an idea…”Why not turn one website into an affiliate only site and turn it into a virtual marketplace?”
One Retail Therapy was born and I have worked at it diligently since then until now. Contrary to what affiliate marketers and their websites tell you, you can not spend $5.oo with Facebook advertising and have thousands jumping over to your site. And this is not a three-hour a day job, you have to work it!
But for me it was something else.
When you are a creative creature and you stop creating, you almost stop breathing. I felt like I was chewing on card board every day. Don’t ask how I know what it feels like to chew cardboard. No joy, just ho-hum, when will the day be done? And money rolling in by the wheel barrels is also an urban myth. You do make some money, but when you calculate the hours you work by the money you make, one cent an hour is pretty pitiful.
By now, I was going down the road my Lord had warned me about in Romans 12:2.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Renew my mind? My mind was bored and frustrated! My soul gasped for survival!
Yep, I was spiraling down the world’s twisty, turning slide and right into the nasty, sticky muck.
Something has to be done and be done right now!
So, that is what I am doing! I am turning my sites back into inspirational sites.
Please be patient with me as I find my butterfly wings and attach them once more.
God Bless YOU!
