Welcome! Obviously, I'm not here personally to chat, and probably hard at work with what I WANT to do and preparing for my future!
In 2012 I discovered what I had to do after about 2 years of wandering around the WWW, not understanding a thing, but knowing only the one thing that was driving me:
* I WANTED TO WORK FROM HOME, USING THE WWW TO CREATE AN INCOME *
I discovered I had to create a list and have a website
But, I had no money!
(For a quick glance at my (untidy) list of 'things to do', here's the ONE url to my first free website which I've built up over the years: http://rcarosin.webs.com/)
I had found webs.com and created that first free website so that I only had to advertise ONE url to the WWW'ebbers, plus have the list handy so that I could consult it every time I couldn't remember which way to go forward with the many sites I'd joined...
Here's the pick of the bunch that I log into every day, sometimes a lot more than once, to collect the pennies and points that add up, like runs in a cricket match...
In order of importance, here they are:
I have no personal affiliate link for Toluna, but it's a great site and I earn a good few dollars there, plus I have the choice to get airtime or some other reward instead.
I have no problems there, and pop in every day.
There are lots more survey sites I've joined and they're listed on my Things To Do website (http://rcarosin.webs.com/)
You're more than welcome to browse on that very long list to where I have the Survey Sites listed, to join and earn more
Here, too, I have no personal referral affiliate link, but with YouTube, I was able to fulfill dreams I didn't even know I had.
Plus, it's an excellent way to advertise, should you wish to do so.
I've been with YouTube since 2011 and they offered to monetize my account.
Gees, I had no idea of what I was doing in that first year!
Yet, here I am, with my stories and jokes and music videos, art attempts, etc., and I'm totally chuffed as, last year January, I finally earned enough to cash out R1000!
Nope, I haven't got any viral videos, but every cent counts!
Maybe you have the imagination to make videos to capture the hearts and minds of many people.
Who knows, but it's definitely worth a thought.
Have a look at what goes viral. Also have a look at how other people have show-cased talents similar to yours. See what YOU are able to create.
Here's the link to my YouTube page:
This site is one of my recent acquisitions.
I am not sure if it is for anyone, but it certainly suits me.
Here I have been able to 'show-case' my talents and skills with people in my area, as well as world-wide.
The site is complicated, to my mind, and of course, there are the scoffers.
Yet, after much hard work and patience, I have slowly started to get to the point where I'm in a profit situation.
That's cool for cats, right?
It's totally up to each individual whether they'd like to join.
It's good for me.
A discipline I like in my every day life.
I've had commissions for my art, music and clay work.
To me it's exciting!
But it's a lot of learning.
If you're prepared to do the work, the rewards, like with all the sites here on this page, shall be forthcoming.

I love IBO TOOL BOX!
It rocks when it comes to FREE ADVERTISING!
There is an upgraded version for those who need more, but I've been happy with my Free IBO and the other sites Kris, the owner, has developed over the years.
Yes, one has to learn the ropes.
There is a lovely network of people there, all who are quite willing to help with information and guidance.
Are you on your own on the WWW?
Of course, yes - because YOU make the decisions.
MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS.
Do your homework and find out for Yourself what works for you.
Build up a name for yourself - whether it be a logo, photograph or just a label. It is your individual fingerprint/identification.
In the Old Days, they used to tell me "The World Is Your Oyster".
Now I'm sure I can easily say: "The World Is At Your FingerTips!"
(You can click the image to be taken to the website to investigate further for yourself)
There are lots of free advertising sites listed on my original website
IBO is just one of my favourites...
IMPORTANT INSERTED UPDATE (10 July 2017)
I went ahead and published two paperbacks, which are also in e-book form at Amazon/Kindle!
I'm so chuffed - another dream come true!
The one to the left, and another one called PITYFUL WANDERER by Raine Carosin...
All for FREE!
PayPal has been like my right-hand Man when it comes to working the finances on the WWW. A totally MUST HAVE to assist with the future of monetary transactions. There are lots of other PayProcessors - find what you need. Remember to do your research before you jump into anything. (You can click the image to be taken to the website to investigate further for yourself)
And this is what I really look like, without the false eyelashes and the make up and the hair blow-dried and the false teeth...
Yeah, image counts a lot in this old vain World.
I do a make-over once a year to keep my public profile pics up to date and looking flashy and dashy and creatively appealing to the eye.
But, I'm also a down to earth, honest person who is not here to fool anyone with false promises and scams.
So, remember: you got your NAME and your IMAGE.
Do the best you can to create something you and Yours may look back on without regrets!
