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 a personal affiliate link for Toluna, it's a great site and I earn a good few dollars there.
I have no problems 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 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:
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!"

There are lots of free advertising sites listed on my original website
IBO is just one of my favourites...
I'm posting this important development! I signed up with Songtradr (http://www.songtradr.com/raine.carosin) as they offered me a month free, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to create some incoming revenue from selling some of my songs!
It's an exciting venture I'm on... I started selling some of my music via Reverbnation, but I'm finding that Songtradr offers a whole load more opportunities, and an easier paying method (because the pricing suits my pocket).
Well, onwards, eh?
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!
I finally was able to put up some of music for sale, and use some of the buckeroos I'd saved through 2017 to buy my own domain name!

Well, I did a wild thing!
I made a short teevee AD and put it on my YouTube channel (public viewing) and used the url at BRANDZOOKA, along with the coupon code that I received for being a first time user, and GOT AN AN AD PROMOTING MY Music in the USA, UK and Canada! (One can choose one's own countries).
The site is super easy to use, f'sure!
The hardest thing I had to do was to make a video ad! (My equipment is aging, just like me, so my mouse is disobedient and loses the 'cheese' every now and again, and the movie maker has some features that just won't work!) See video above
But, it's done and it feels so good to go to sleep knowing my ad is working around the World! Incredible!
I'll post a coupon code if Brandzooka can give me one to post here for first time users! (CHECK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS WRITING - Yay! I got a coupon for you!)
I had such a blast! Wow! The World certainly can be one's oyster! With my voucher, I didn't have to pay any extra monies and used only the limit of my coupon. If you've got bucks, well, what's stopping you? It's a great medium, f'sure!
GOT A COUPON CODE FOR YOU! Yup, Jenna and the Team there made my day over and over for the rest of my life: check this out - Jenna at Brandzooka wrote to me: "I just made a special coupon for you to share: makeitraine! It's good for $50 towards a campaign and you're welcome to share it with whomever you'd like!"
Me and the gaming site called FantaZ go back long time - but they had some refurbishing to do, and I kinda forgot all about the site until I got an email just now telling me that they're UP AND RUNNING AGAIN!
You're gonna love this site, I just know it!
Join me and see if you can beat my score, if someone hasn't already!
FantaZ Membership also allows you the ability to create Private Tournaments and earn hosting fees, while at the same time building a residual income.
Individuals are not the only ones who can benefit from FantaZ’s incredible ZBO Compensation Plan and technical platform. You can now monetize your business database of customers and employees in a completely new and exciting way. https://www.fantaz.com/join/rainecarosin
They're FREE to play, and I earn from advertising.
This one was hard work for me who's no natural geek, but, in today's climate, it's good I stay indoors and keep myself busy! Try it! You may just create the best game!
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!
