Wealthy Affiliate

We all have a hobby or something that gets us excited and motivated when we think about it. It only takes one idea to create a very successful business online. Don’t have any ideas? No problem, Wealthy Affiliate will help you choose a direction of your business from over 1,000,000 different niches.

Want to know if it works?  Everything you see here and everything linked here was created on WordPress through Wealthy Affiliate. They provide everything you need to create a beautiful and profitable platform.  A FREE Starter Account will more than get your foot in the door and includes TWO FREE websites plus an entire course of training.  The community is incredible and makes it easy to get help, feedback, and advice at every step.

Looking for a side job, passive income, or a full-time job at home?  This is no get-rich-quick scheme – it is true self-employment.  It requires work, dedication, and self-motivation, but like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it.  The tools, training, and support are there, and they work.  I’ve been involved in website design and blogging for over fifteen years, but never have I found a more approachable, organized system for online marketing where truly anyone can succeed.  That’s my two cents, anyhow.


The Smoking Monkey

I love the experience of smoking cigars, but I’m just a Regular Joe(L). I don’t have any fancy sponsorships or a highly developed palate, and I wanted to share my experiences with others who are maybe just getting into cigars or just looking for something satisfying to smoke. Other Regular Joe’s, just like me.

I spend a lot of time watching videos and reading reviews from folks who do have highly developed palates and can recognize a hundred flavors in a cigar. I learn plenty from those videos, and I am grateful that they so willingly share their expertise. At the end of the day (or the beginning of the day, or the middle of the day, or at 3:26 in the afternoon…), I just want a good cigar experience…


Hell Is A Lie

Jesus tells us nothing about eternal torture or fiery torment after death. Eternal life or death are the only two options. Eternal hellfire is a cruel, wicked lie, and dishonors YHVH to such an extreme that people view HIM as evil!

We just want to spread the good news that salvation is about restoration of His people to the state of sinlessness that was lost in the garden of Eden. Love based on fear of hell and eternal torture is extortion! Do you truly believe that the Most High God, who loved the world so much that he sent his Son, Yeshua to DIE for its salvation would do such a thing to His creations, made in His own image..?
