PAA and FOK are Still Down!

PAA and FoK are STILL DOWN!!  I briefly peeked at FoK, (don't go there - malware is still popping up), and folks are complaining about lack of access, and the sex ads that are popping up.

Aaron, (the owner/operator), better get off his butt and fix those sites quickly, or he's gonna lose all his audience.

Oh no! PAA and FoK have been HACKED!!

Well this is a bummer!  PAA, (, and FoK, (, are currently hacked.  Please do NOT go to these websites right now!

Since most of my articles that I (allegedly) make money from are one these two sites, that means my "writing career" is, once again, kaput!

Making money online seems like a fantasy right now, and making money writing online articles seems like a fool's quest.

More Payments, and Possibly More Wasted Money

Well durn!  We got some more money from our articles, yet Old Grump got excited and spent some more money on a dubious product again.

First the money Grump spent.  After listening to a podcast hyping up the Amazon FBA program, he purchased the Profit Bandit iPhone application for $14.95 .  Then, and only then, did he listen to Sweetie, who explained to him the many pitfalls of the Amazon FBA program, and how it was NOT something to rush into without doing your homework.

Drat!  It appears that searching for a way to find that "easy money", Grump just wasted some of his own again.

Now on to some better news.  The Crazy Texan paid us yet again!  As before, these payments are little more than rounding errors, but what the heck.  It's better to earn pennies than spend dollars!

ExpertsPages, April/2014:  $0.33

ExpertsPages, May/2014:  $0.20

FullofKnowledge, May/2014:  $0.31

May wasn't a very good month for earning money on articles.  I hope things pick up a bit in June.

Payments, and a Waste of Money

Well this was a pleasant surprise!  Aaron, (aka "Crazy Texan"), somehow managed to cough up some money for our missing January and February views.  (** cough, cough ** -  where's OUR money, AdSense?)  I even got paid for ExpertsPages, which is a first!

Here are the payments breakdowns.  Once again, not enough to retire on, but still a nice symbolic gesture.

ExpertsPages April earnings:  $.03

ExpertsPages Jan/Feb earnings:  $.46

FullofKnowledge April earnings:  $1.91

FullofKnowledge Jan/Feb earning:  $2.76

Assuming I can add correctly, this comes to a grand total of:  $5.16

Unfortunately, I also spent $9.95 on an eBook/course being pushed by none other than King Human.  IT WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY!  Yes, there's some good stuff in there, but nothing that you can't get for free from, delivered in a more usable form, more accurately, and WITHOUT the irritating upsell.

I lost a lot of respect for King Human over this, (he should know better than to promote crap), and I will certainly NEVER touch anything from Alex Jeffreys again.
