Friday and living the good life.

It’s Friday today, and I’m living a good and relaxing life right now. It’s important to take the opportunities you get to enjoy life. One of the best things I love to do is cooking. I love to do long cooks in company with my wife or good friends. This Friday it’s me and my wife that is cooking together.

Today we will serve a Texas Chili.

As we cook we take a little cooking drink of FireBall and a cold beer with music playing in the background. This is how I like to cook. A creative, tasty and very relaxed way, with a fantastic company.

We use chuck steak to our Texas Chili. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the meat unpacked, so no picture on the meat. But trust me it was a really nice piece of chuck steak.

Garlic and onions.

Added the spices cumin, oregano, spicy paprika powder, chili powder, meat bouillon, and sugar this all will cook together into this fantastic dish Texas Chili in a couple of hours. We usually let it simmer in about five hours.

As an accessory to the Texas Chili, we serve melted cheese covered Cheese Nachos and sour cream for dipping. And of course, a cold beer.

With this, I and my wife wishes you a wonderful weekend.

Presenting a new member of the family.

Hi there!

Today I will do something different. I will present to you a new member of my family. On the 26th of October, Cirkus, the one-year-old cat moved in with us.

This is a picture of our cat Cirkus lying in the living room window.

He is a mixed-race of Maine Coon, Norwegian Forest Cat, and the domestic cat. He comes from another loving home but where the previous owner felt that she hadn’t got the time that Cirkus needs and deserves to attend to his longhair fur.

We are honored that Cirkus was willing to adopt us as his new family and he has settled down in his new home. Today was his first time outside and it all went perfectly well and he returned home after about a 30 minutes scouting of the vicinity. As he came back inside he got some leftovers from daddy’s (mine) pork chops and cream gravy.

Cirkus is testing daddy’s cooking skills.

Cirkus loves to stretch out in the living room window right above the radiator where it is warm and cozy. And he has the most awkward postures where he is twisted to the maximum. I can’t in my life understand how that can be comfortable, but it’s his choice.

Many irons to forge.

Free ads.

I do many different things right now to build my dream life.

I post ads on free ads pages that contain affiliate links to other already successful online entrepreneurs ads. The idea behind doing so is to make affiliate income on already working ads. Ads that are proven to work. I use Clickbank to find good affiliate opportunities where the data tells me that they are converting. I chose those who have good stats and get my own affiliate link which I shorten via a free url shortener to a more handy link. Then I take this link and paste it into an ad that I create on one of the countless free-ads webpages that are out there. This way I have created the possibility for me to gain affiliate commission all for free. It hasn’t cost me a single dollar.

The best thing is.

I am actually doing the author of the original ad a good favor as I help spread this person’s ad all over the internet.

Import/export.

As I mentioned before I am also preparing myself for business on Amazon. I struggle a bit here as it is a bit tricky to activate an account on Amazon Seller Central US. It is really easy to set up an account and start paying them monthly fees to Amazon. It’s a whole other matter to get the account activated for the sales business.

I say this as a person not resident in the US. I believe it’s much easier for US residentials.

Youtube.

I also publish some videos on YouTube. I have started to republish some creative common videos. These are videos free to use for everyone. I am thinking that this might be a way for me to get a little bit more traffic to my channel. I am fully aware that I’m not very organized in my YouTube-channel right now. But I will get there as soon as I got a bit more grip on things.

I reckon I will need to categorize my videos better and that I also will need to keep recreating videos in certain genres. But hey, I will improve as I learn.

This is actually also a totally free way of creating possibilities for income. When I pass 1000 subscribers and 4000 view hours my account gets approved for monetization. This means that YouTube will start showing ads in connection with my videos.

Vlogging.

On top of that, I am also filming myself every other day. It’s hard to film yourself and watch it afterward, haha. The tricky thing is to not be too hard on yourself. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like watching myself on video. This is a tough thing to learn and it needs a lot of practice.

Hopefully, you will be seeing me vlogging here on my site in the near future. I’ve got some sanding and polishing onto my performance in front of the camera prior to my premiere vlog-posting. But eventually, it will be done.

If you are still here by then, please don’t chop my head off, haha.

Learning to create ad-pictures and video sequences.

To get as much attention as possible to your ads and make nice and beautiful commercial advertising videos. There is imperative to know how to manipulate pictures and make use of transitions and intros in videos. Right now I am in the process of learning that as well. Mastering this will allow me to make a bit of money helping other businesses with their advertisings. I need to have the knowledge for my own business so I see this as a bonus.

Sharing of my tools.

In the near future, I will be sharing what tools I use. I will also give you a review of them with the pros and con’s from my perspective. Most likely I will share affiliate links to them under my “Tools” tab for your possibility to get them easily if you should want to.

Wrap this up.

Well, it’s time for me to wrap this up and close the shop for the day. I’ve had a productive day today and I’m looking forward to tomorrow.

Wish you the best, and I hope to see you again soon.
