I ruined my hobby!

I’m Done I have quit affiliate marketing. Here are some of the reasons. I have a day job, so there’s not enough time to devote to blogging. I wasn’t willing to focus on one topic. Blogging began to feel like an obligation. I felt like I was letting the affiliate programs down by not posting […]

Do what I can

Compassion for those who know no better I’m trying to understand why people refuse to social distance and wear a mask. Do they think themselves invincible?
