Check out 'V' Season 2 on DVD

'V' Season 2 is finally out to purchase on DVD and Blu-ray both! This show is one that fans have missed ever since they took it off television.

Season 2 is great! This is the one where Hobbes shows his true colors. He is calling out Ryan for being a traitor on this season. The truth is that Hobbes is worse than him really if you look at the facts. He caused Joe to die, slept with Erica, and even killed humans. Have you ever had to deal with someone telling you are wrong all the time even though they aren't perfect either? It can sure be annoying!

I have been hired by Warner Bros. WBWord division to promote V Season Two on DVD."

The Things that People Search for Online

As a writer, I am quickly learning the things that people look for online. It is shocking to me what some of the popular topics are honestly. If it is strange or weird people love it! As an example, one of my best articles on Examiner is about a woman who ate her husband's ashes after he died. The article is titled 'My Strange Addiction' Woman Can't Stop Eating Dead Husband's Ashes. You can read it here. People must just love shock factor!

Another thing that surprises me is how much people want to follow people from reality shows long after the show is over. People care about Blake Julian and Holly Durst from "Bachelor Pad 2" so much! This recent article is called 'Holly Durst Starts Using Fiance as New Dentist.' You can read it here.  Why on earth do people care so much who cleans her teeth? They really do care though!

Do you have any things you write on that you are surprised do so well? Are you shocked at what interests people sometimes?

Here is another example of something everyone loves to read about right now. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore Back Together and Camping

How I Found my First Work at Home Jobs

I knew I wanted to work at home the second I started having children, but everything seemed like a scam. It was really hard for me to find a work at home job that was legit. Here are a few things to remember when looking for a job.

  • Never pay someone to work for them. If they ask you for money, it probably isn't legit.
  • If you don't find something at first, keep looking. There are a ton of opportunities out there.
  • Don't be afraid to try something new! I never thought I could make a living as writer and look at me now.
  • Don't put all of your eggs in one basket. In other words, it is not a good idea to only work one place. You never know when a place might close so get a few different jobs just in case.
One thing that helped me out is a forum called Work Place Like Home. It is amazing! You will find other men and women looking to work at home. They will be honest with you about their experiences and can help you in your journey.

 'V' Season Two is coming on DVD and fans of the show could not be more excited! I know I can't wait to enjoy this show again!

Season 2 is the one where we see Anna trying to fool everyone. She will end up putting her daughter into prison and don't forget that she takes the life of her own mother! She is crazy, but everyone can not see that. She just pulls the wool right over their eyes. Do you think she is one of the best villain's of all time? If not, who do you think is in your eyes? 

You can pick them here on DVD or Blu-ray.

Garage Sale - One Tired Momma!

This weekend we had a garage sale. It was well worth it! I got rid of a ton of stuff in my house and also made a few hundred dollars. The only problem with it is that now I am one tired momma! I am just exhausted and now I still need to get some work done. I am glad we had a successful weekend though! If you need extra cash, it is always a good idea to clean out your house and have a garage sale! I should have taken pictures of all the stuff we got rid of :)

My Facebook Fan Page - What is Yours?

As a writer, I have started a Facebook fan page. I use this page to reach out to people who enjoy my writing and to share articles. I also use it as a place to post articles that I know need a little bit of help and need people to click on them. I feel like this is a great way to get new readers, but to also make my writing more personal. 

Do you have a Facebook fan page? Do you think it helps you in your Work at Home Adventures? If so, please share it in the comments so that I can make sure I have liked it for you!

Here is my Facebook fan page if you are interested in it.

'The X Factor' Isn't On Tonight!

I am a huge fan of 'The X Factor.' I love to watch this show every week, but I also love to write on it. I will admit this show does well for me. Well now tonight it is not on because of baseball. I mean seriously?? Who wants to watch baseball over 'The X Factor'? I guess some men do, but not me :) If you want to know when it will air, you can find out here. Hmm, now what to do tonight?

What Ever Happened to Break Studios?

As a writer, I used to love Break Studios. I could do easy articles and get paid good for them. I have to ask other writers, what happened here? I log in, but can't ever find any articles at all in the queue. I will try again in a week or so and still nothing. Does anyone have an idea?

Just Wanted to Share - Best Month Ever!

I feel like I am finally figuring it all out. I just wanted to share with all of you that I just had my best month ever working from home. I am coming close to making what my husband does and it is an amazing feeling! I am pretty much dividing my time between Gather and Examiner, but I do throw a bit of Associated Content in there still. I also write for a small newspaper, but I only do 1 article a month for them. I am super excited with the success and just wanted to share! Never give up on your dreams because you can do it! I never would have thought I could make what I am writing about celebrities and television.
