SEO Clerks #ObamaCare #FoodStamps #SONA

I started blogging  when my husband was reassigned  in South Korea  in 2008.  A friend of mine  told me that I could earn money from home and she showed me step by step on how to create and start a blog.  I was  hesitant at first because I wasn't sure if I could do it or if I could write articles that would interest others  but I love trying new things so I gave it a try and I am  so glad that I did!  
Earning from blog isn't easy, you have to learn how to   get your articles crawl on the web.  You have to learn the  search engine optimization  and all other aspects that   affect   the traffic of your blog.  The higher the traffic to your blog is, the better because most advertisers  will offer you  online gigs.  You can also sell your blog with high ranking for a good price.

On the  other note, did you watch the State of the Nation Address  of the president?We did not  watch it as  my husband  is tired of what is going on with the healthcare and all.  At  the company where my husband works now, he opted out for the healthcare because we have our own that we previously have  when my husband was still in the service.  For opting out of their health care, my husband receives  a portion of it every pay.  But this year, that said  health benefits has decreased because the company has to pay more for the  Affordable Care Act.  ObamaCare does not  help but instead affects us in a negative way.
Within 5 years, people who are receiving welfare/food stamps climb up  from 9% to 20% within ten years.  You can tell in the graph below  that  from 2004 to 2008 it only increased  2% but after that, the increase is enormous.  
Sometimes, I'd like to think that the system is so unfair.  Don't you think?  One good example is during TAX season.  Those people who pay more tax get back  a little but those who did not pay much, get a bigger amount of income tax return. Now tell me, is that fair?

  4. No!!! It is NOT fair! My husband is self employed and I hate seeing him having to work so hard (we do not get vacation pay and he works 7 days a week trying to do it all) to pay for those that don't even care about looking for a job. Thanks for speaking up-hard to do, I know...

  5. Sounds like some difficult situations for families...especially those who try to generate their own income from self-employment. Somehow, the battler always seems to lose.

  7. It is one HUGE mess. We are retired and have our insurance through the state of VA but won’t be surprised if it goes up. It is one big corrupt mess that will not get fixed in my lifetime. I have quit listening to the news it is so upsetting.

  9. I really am not familiar with blogging. I started blogging to cure the boredom from being stuck at home. Though now I make a little money from blogging and it is awesome. :)

  10. I hate to talk about it, but yes it is unfair. I can just hear my husband steaming about so enough said. LOL! Anyway, I too started blogging when I learned from friends that you can actually earn money. Although I didn't really earn much or still aren't earning much, but at least I still love what I do. Even though I started blogging since 2008 as well, still not an expert when it comes to a lot of things pertaining blogging.
