It's just about every writer's dream to be able to start up a blog, write short articles and earn money. Not just a bit of money, but enough money to live on.

But how easy is it?

If you've never done it before and you don't know what you're doing, it can be hard.

There are three things that you need to do:

Book Review: Abundance Now: Amplify Your life and Achieve Prosperity Today

I recently read the book "Abundance Now: Amplify Your life and Achieve Prosperity Today" by Lisa Nichols & Janet Switzer

Did I like it?

Not one bit.

Usually, I don't write a negative review of a book. If I don't like it I  just don't say anything.

But this time I thought it was worth giving my opinion of it to warn others because I felt like this book wasn't what it was supposed to be.

I've heard the author, Lisa Nichols, on 'The Secret' (I have the audio version) several years ago so I was intrigued to read a book of hers when I saw it.

Sadly, I wish I hadn't bothered.

This is how my review starts:

"I borrowed this book from my local library and all I can say is, thank goodness I didn't buy it because it would have been a complete waste of money."

You can read the rest at https://ruthiswriting.com/reviews/abundance.html.

I read a lot of books but this one was one of the most disappointing.

I hope you have better luck with whatever book you're currently reading.

I've just started reading Psyco Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. I'm only a few pages into it but already it's got me intrigued and I can't wait to read more.

How to find FREE Images, Sound, Music, and Videos – that you can use LEGALLY Use

When you are blogging, you absolutely need free images – that you can use legally. When you are podcasting, you need a sound effect or a piece of music once in a while. And even when you are creating videos, you might from time to time need a snippet of video that you can’t shoot yourself.

In short, when you are creating anything for the online world, you absolutely need third-party content to make your own content awesome.

If you don’t know what you are doing, you are entering a legal minefield. And if you aren’t careful, you may receive a friendly letter from a lawyer with a DMCA takedown notice. Or worse.
