Date Joined / Last Login

OK. So what am I talking about?

Well…. when I log in to my downline area of CTP these are two of the column headings. When I look down that column I see a good number of direct referrals and random referrals as well. That’s a good thing, but there is a problem. Often the ‘Date Joined’ and the ‘Last Login’ date are the same. For example – 2014-12-30, 2014-12-30.

What is wrong with this picture? I’ll tell you what’s wrong. NO ACTIVITY! Why on earth do we join things and then simply never go back to the member’s area of the program? Well, I’m sure there are a number of reasons for this.

Sometimes we join things because someone asks us to. Sometimes we join things because of the XP we can get. Sometimes we join things because it catches our attention and we intend on checking it out more closely, but for some reason we never do. This is something that needs to change in this industry (among other things – lol).

When we join something like CTP the purpose is to LEARN. How in the HECK can we learn something if we don’t log in, or only log in once in a blue moon? When we join other things there is a reason for it as well – whatever reason that my be for us. The point is, we need to stop just “joining” things.

We need to be as active as we possibly can or use the product/service as often as possible. If we try it and don’t like it then that’s another story, but if we just join it and then do nothing else with it, we have a problem. I include myself in this criticism. I must be a member at about a gazillion places but only actively participate in or use a small percentage of them. Sometimes it’s a thing of finances, but often it’s simply neglect or spreading myself too thin.

Maybe we should all endeavor to be a little more dedicated to things. We need to have more FOCUS. Maybe we should stop joining so many things. The solution is different for each of us. It’s time for us to take our Internet Marketing much more seriously – on all levels. If we all endeavor to do that as individuals, before we know it this industry will actually be worth the cyber space it takes up!

Enough of my blah blah blah – I have programs to join! (lol)

Till next time.

Go Lucky 13 and Lucky 13 Too!!

Monday February 9, 2015

Good Morning!  Good Monday Morning!

Yes it is a great Monday morning.  In spite of itself:)

I live in an alarm clock free zone, so when I go to bed and when I get up is somewhat flexible. Typically on Monday I sleep a little later because I am up a little later on Sunday night.  I did this morning, got up about 2 hours later than normal for me.  No big deal.

Until my coffee maker died.  Yep.  My trusty 2 year old Mr. Coffee assumed the position after a mere 1500 pots of coffee or tea run through it.  Yes, that number is accurate, in fact it is quite low.

I have tried a couple of times to write a worthy tribute to Rebecca Thames and what she meant in my life.  Those words won’t come out quite yet.  It’s frustrating, but normal.

Bad day, right?  Well not exactly:)  The truth is, I have all day to catch up with myself for the extra couple hours sleep.  I have a couple things scheduled on Monday, but lots of hours to work….

Becca’s tribute will come.  In it’s time, in it’s own way.  It WILL come.

And I really, really, really like perked coffee once in a while.  The coffee I am drinking right this very minute is perked in a Comet brand all aluminum stove top percolater that dates to the 1950s.  One of my most treasured camping tools of all time.

So I can have it either way.  Bad Monday or good Monday.  If it’s OK with all of you, I think I’ll chose good.  It is, after all, my choice.

So, it’s like I said at the start.  GOOD Monday to you all!

I’m going to leave you with the ‘quote of the day’ from right here on this website.  Sunny uses this plug in on all her sites, it is only available to ‘administrators’ and is often hilarious.  Today’s is just plain true:

And with that, I’m off to work. Those unicorns aren’t going to feed themselves.

I’m just sayin’


Your Help, Please

Woke up this morning and was so excited that I get to do my Taxes today that I almost forgot about the blog… Well, Ok, not that excited..LOL

After digging out from 17″ of Snow and more to come the ole back is happy to be sitting in this chair with heat on it.  My Granddaughter Emma has been with me for the last 2 day as there was no school and mom and dad work.  Russell I tried to get her to do your puzzle but she took one look at it and said, “Um.. No”  We started working on a 300 pc.  Harry Potter Puzzle, not finished, and she played Star Stables while I surfed.  Which made me think about how far we have come in the last 10 years with computers in this house.  The Gr.Ma now has a window 8.1 desktop and a tablet that syncs to it and Emma is showing me how to work some of it…. geez… she is 10 by the way.

Enough of my rambling..  I would like to install the help of TE land in answering this Question.

Where do you advertise and get good results?

I am trying to get my sites out into other TEs, Coops, etc. that have nothing to do with CTP, and Kore 4.  I have joined several other TEs this week, trying to expand my horizons.

If you could just shoot me an email at I sure would appreciate your advice.

Thank You for your help!!!  GO LUCKY 13 and LUCKY 13 Too!!!!
