Aquaponics For Beginners – Chris Queen Book Review

Chris Queen Book Review. Aquaponics For Beginners by Kevin Justine, was chosen here for review because the subject is pertinent for the world situation under the pandemic protocol. More episodes like this may be repeated. The subject therefore lends itself to survival in the event something even more serious arises.

I am personally interested in the subject of aquaponic growing for myself and my family. It is my intention, therefore to review more literature on the subject toward building my own system and offering know how to help others build their own system for aquaponic growing and farming.

So let’s get to it. I ordered this book, on Books A Million and highly recommend it. The book reveals the information necessary to properly size, stock, chemically balance and maintain a healthy abundant aquaponic growing system. This would put us in good shape if, God Forbid, food availability is severely diminished. Whatever the reason.

One hundred and fifty years ago most people lived on or were still connected to farmland. In our day the percentage of farmers and those connected is minuscule by comparison. We mostly work for large companies with most new employment provided by small business, here in the United States.

Aquaponic gardening is, in basic sticking fish in a tank and using that water for a hydroponic set up. Hydroponics produces food without very much taste and less nutritional value than tradition soil farming. The maximum in tasty organic farming is produced through aquaponic growing.

The book here explains all of this in detail, including the various grow media, essentially rock. The book goes into detail about the best plants to grow, the best fish to stock, how to provide the rich oxygen and the necessary Ph of the water for the health of the fish and the plants.

As a mechanical engineer I was surprised at the detail and the explanation of the various system, setups the mechanisms required such as home made filters and waste removal systems this author recommends.

 

The book provides the carrying capacity for number of fish based on volume of your tank and species of fish used. Detailed information about the optimum temperature ranges for these various species.

The author, highly recommends Rainbow Trout with the caveat about temperature also for Crappie, BlueGill, Koi, Tilapia, Catfish, Pacu, Goldfish and even Guppies and Angelfish which he suggests are hard to kill and very good for indoor systems.

Carefully explaining the need to remove the waste solid from the water for the health of the entire system and exactly how to do this in the least expansive way. He explains how to design a swirl separator as a means to remove solid waste.

 

The system needs to be monitored for chemical levels, however, it is much less labor intensive than ordinary soil farming. The different fish and the various food bearing plants require water in ranges the author has researched and provides.

The last few chapters of the book provides design [parameters and some specific recommendations as well charts and flow diagrams showing his readers exactly how to build their own system.

 

I looked at websites and there the various pumps for water and air and most of the rest of the materials needed to build your own aquaponic gardening setup.  Food tanks are good for larger volume systems.

This is a very good book on the subject giving you a detailed look at every aspect of successful aquaponic growing. The information can be scaled up for commercial sized systems for those who might want to provide produce for market at supermarkets of the local farmer’s market.

It can be scaled down for a fish tank growing system in home for personal consumption.

 

I again heartilly recommend this book as a great place to start educating yourself on the pursuit of an aquaponic garden setup. Judging from this vantage, as an engineer it looks like this author has left nothing out in regard to the necessary ingredients and ingenuity for a great growing set up.

CDBaby Digital Distribution – How 2 Make Lemonade

How 2 Make Lemonade

How 2 make lemonade is the question of the day, in view of the changes in the music industry.and perhaps my initial judgment was hasty. What we have here is the classic case of lemons. What to do? How 2 make lemonade.

A few days ago I posted about BookBaby.com comparing them to booklocker.com, ridiculing CDBaby Digital Distribution. I made an error there. Steaming songs on YouTube is not for free. YouTube is a streaming service just like Spotify, amazon music, iTunes, Deezer and all the rest.

YouTube pays the least of them all, I’m told. But a picture is worth a thousand words, in promotions. The exposure in video is maximized if you produce and distribute interesting content. Users need to be interested.

CDBabyDigital Distribution

The following is a letter from Jay with CDBaby answering my statement about them putting my songs on YouTube and I probably agreed to it somewhere along the way for some promise of monetization. I really don’t recall, however, in fairness CDBaby always seems to ask what course you’d prefer.

Thing is, if you read his letter here below you see the choices are stream your songs or figure out how to promote and sell them yourself. Trouble is the model has changed. No longer do people buy song downloads. They have become accustomed to streaming as the method of user interface.

Lemons, that’s what we got. But maybe not. Knowing what we know about content driven traffic maybe we can make more money with our songs, through competing with ourselves, than we ever could have trying to compete with the talent and the record company resources.

 

CDBaby’s Letter

“CD Baby Artist Services (CD Baby)

Jun 11, 2020, 11:22:41 AM PDT

Hi Chris,

Thanks for getting in touch with us. Sorry for the late reply! With COVID causing everyone to cancel their shows we’ve had more submissions than we’ve ever had before and we’re struggling to keep pace… Clearly we still have a way to go before we get there. Thank you for your patience.

That said, there is no “free YouTube plays”. YouTube Music is a streaming service just like Apple Music and Spotify. You’re paid a small amount per spin. We understand that it’s a very small amount. You’re free to opt-out of streaming if you choose to, but CD Baby has seen time and again that artists who allow their music to be streamed make more money than artists who don’t.

I know this doesn’t make fix the small streaming amounts, but hopefully it can help you understand how things are working.

Best,

Jay

Atención al Artista

The DIY Musician Conference is heading back to Austin NEXT year. It’s all happening August 27-29, 2021″

 

This was in reply to my message in my CDBaby account here:

Chris Queen

Apr 25, 2020, 5:07:09 PM PDT

“Just want to ask here, How are Artists supposed to earn a living with all the streaming and free YouTube plays?”

It Is What It Is, As They Say

I went into Wal Mart tonight to return something. As I was leaving the electronics department I turned a corner and saw vinyl records in a rack perhaps 20 feet long. There below the record selection of real albums on vinyl were numerous varieties of turntables to play the vinyl discs.

About fifteen years ago I read an article how, due to the superior sound some people were returning to vinyl records for their preferred medium of listening pleasure. I asked my friend Paul (a professional and fairly successful recording artist sine 1970) “Hey Paul when are you going to produce your records on vinyl again.” He laughed. Guess what? Paul is on vinyl with his latest album, Branching Roots HEREWal Mart now deems vinyl records as a worthwhile offer once again.

Wouldn’t it be wild if things ended up going full circle back to the superior sound of the vinyl records? About $ 20.00 per album at Wal Mart, to get some great music and it allows you to pick the album to set the mood. Won’t be long until they are building magnetic tape and reel to reel recorders, again for the warmer tone of analog recording. End of the crunchy tin foilesque brittle sibilant digital freeze-dried process?

OPPORTUNITY

All speculation aside, I apologize to CDBaby for my mistake in thinking they were streaming my songs for free when I was actually earning some fraction of a hundreth or a thousandth of a penny for each spin (?) vinyl records and CD’s spin. But hey, whose counting microscopic portions of a penny? Three or Four Million streams and you can afford a book of stamps to write home. But, Just E mail it.

Seeking the recipe, how 2 make lemonade, with the lemons, the sugar, the water. Starting here with several hundred followers I probably would not have if I had not run across CDBaby and the CDBaby digital distribution, a couple guitars a computer a little bit of know how.  I’m at chrisqueen.hearnow.com, with my CD and streaming “Look Up Now.” Or Look Up Now on YouTube, also on Amazon (CD) So let’s give it whirl!  You can sign up for spotify, amazon music, iTunes or Deezer while you are there.

Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for reading my post. Thank you in advance for streaming my songs. I hope they bring you enjoyment and comfort. Please like them, if you like them. Please if you have any comments leave them below. If you have any questions leave them there too. I will reply. Thank you again. Chris.  

Look Up Now.

BookBaby vs Booklocker – Publisher Comparison

Book Baby? CDBaby? Yes they are the same outfit. So I want to make sure you know who you’re dealing with and expose their past indiscretions. Closest I can come is the Bernie Maddoff, of modern digital music. More and more musicians, singer songwriters and bands were convinced to join with their amazing marketing.

That was about the end of it. I watched a video where a record company guy said CDBaby and other companies, were lucky to have 100 guys sell 2 CDs. I recollect the great sales pitch to get you to sign on. Ever see any advertising to get you buy CDs? Me neither. Record promotion, like book promotion requires online savvy. More about that here tomorrow, please stop back in.

Required online business acumen to sell your record, unless you are CDBaby who closed their CD store. I went to my Facebook fan page and discovered the CD sample player and sales platform with buy buttons was gone. I started looking into it the next day. I went to login to my CD Baby account and discovered the closed explanation.

Then I discovered my songs streaming on YouTube, for anyone who clicked them free. Now, in my case, thanks to Paul Clark and mutual friends I have a pretty rocking Christian record and it cost me about $ 1200.00 or so, to make.

Some people have 20K or 30K in their production costs. So pretty much the same thing happened to all their artists. So then I found their offer of a YouTube Channel, thinking I would have my samples and buy buttons back, I went for it.

My options were: 1) Stream them at chrisqueen.hearnow.com (my YouTube station) minus any way to sell them. No buy buttons; 2) Stream them on Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Deezer or take them down from the special website.

Millions were actually made, we suspect on CDBaby’s sale of the lot of us, as the Brits would say to these streaming pirates. Oh I read a nice story about a Nashville Singer Songwriter who was placed on the Spotify Special list of some name and he made $ 56,000. 13,000,000 streams @ .0043 = 56,000 and of course his other songs benefited one of them earning him 39,000.

Enter BookBaby. My advice is to read the E book and print contract very carefully. Then go over to booklocker.com and save $ 768.00 for a superior self-published book and awesome customer service and retention of all your rights to your book. You won’t find yours on BookTube for free with Booklocker. Tell Angela I sent you. These BookBaby people have already proven themselves as scandalous, the way I see it. I wanted to let everyone know who they are dealing with over at BookBaby. Sue me.

BookBaby Pricing is double what I and anyone else who publishes with Booklocker.com, paid/pay. BookBaby publishing $ 1643. WOW! In all fairness they are nowhere near the most expensive. Booklocker is the cheapest coming in at $ 875.00 Outskirts Press is outrageously expensive at $ 3, 695.00 and you probably get a Styrofoam cooler and beach umbrella with that. You don’t need any book junk. You don’t need some smoke in the tail promotional package like the $400.00 they charged one of their authors at BookBaby. He said it did nothing for him.  You need your self-published book, a website and training to succeed at promoting your book.

Next thing to look at is book quality. If your book is not professionally formatted, appointed, professional cover design and executed in quality printing no one will buy them except your mom, and her sister maybe.

I personally vouch for Booklocker publishing, print prep, formatting, print quality and the customer service is excellent. My book Misquoting Logic What Bart Ehrman Forgot To Tell You About The Coming Apocalypse And Your Place In It is superior in all aspects. As previously shared in this website, Mark Levine author of The Fine Print of Self-Publishing, a must read on the level of oxygen for authors who are planning to self-publish or those who already have done so. Angela rescues those in quicksand who make a mistake elsewhere. Mark says “If you can find a POD publisher who pays a higher royalty than Booklocker Go With It.”

So half the price to produce your book, the best quality you can find, excellent customer service and the highest royalties paid, Booklocker is the best place to self-publish anywhere on the planet.

My E book was distributed in a very short time a few days after formatting and Misquoting Logic was up and available everywhere from Amazon to Book-A-Million and “all points in between” as Billy Gibbons sings. A few days later I got to see my paperback all over the web as well. Of course I make more nickels if I sell it HERE so please buy it here, (20% Off Code) in the video, with the code) on Booklocker.com.

And we have not even talked about BookBaby complaints and they are many. I do recommend you read the complaints in writersweekly.com while also divulging here, the publisher of Booklocker, Angela Hoy, is the publisher of writer’sweekly.com as well. She is proud of both and should be. However, her article, as you’ll see, is made up of independent reviews. The link is here below.

https://writersweekly.com/angela-desk/bookbaby-complaints subscribe while you’re there and learn from her, its better free plus a free E book. She’s a Pro.

I recommend reading writersweekly.com to Gage the integrity I personally attest to with Angela and Richard Hoy and the Booklocker Team. Angela is a lot like me. She tells it like it is, as you’ll see without respect for the toes of those deserving.

TrustPilot also has a BookBaby review with some good and some bad reviews, remembering TrustPilot is also advertising BookBaby so don’t forget they are two times more expensive (875/1643 = 53%) than Booklocker.com. Plus they will try to sell you add-ons nickel and dime-ing as one of their disgruntled authors said. I am one of their disgruntled recording artists. I’m Angela Hoy’s author and wouldn’t have it any other way. Neither should you.

Thank you for visiting me here on my site. Thank you for reading my candid posts. Please come back again soon as I will be writing more soon. Please if you have any questions leave them for me here below and I will answer them. Please leave any comments as well. Thank you again very much. Chris. Eyes wide open.

 

How To Sell Your Books Online – What Do You Like

How To Sell Your Books

How to sell your books online has to do with your own interests. The way to enjoy what you are doing and bring interested visitors to your site is increase your authority in your niche. For instance, a family member is a Chevelle Automobile lover. He started a club for Chevelle owners.

He learned HTML back in the early days of the internet and formed a website. These days people use a theme, usually supplied by WordPress and add images and text in the editor and then publish it. When he did his Chevelle Club website he had to write all the code to create his entire site.

He had thousands of visitors to his site over the years. Eventually the Club sold the website to advertisers for auto related products and services.

Make Your Passion Your Niche

So what you need is a personal interest or a passion to create a Niche. Mine here is selling books and teaching others who create books, records, video, podcasts etc to sell their creations as well. I have another website dedicated to selling my books.

The books I have written are about my interest in the prophetic predictions in the Bible. My books lay out the math from Daniel, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Exodus through to Revelation. Most preachers and therefore most people who believe the gospel are unaware of these mathematical realities.

Realities that are objective evidence proving beyond any doubt that the creator named Jehovah inspired the 66 books of the Bible through 40 writers over the course of 3500 years with specific accuracy landing his predictions precisely on the timeline of history reaching into our day.

Be Authentic And Factual

These are factual claims, though you will not hear many speaking on these issues. This is also predicted in the Books of the Bible. Daniel 12: 3, 4 as example, says:

“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”

Among The Wise

I guess I have somehow found my way into the company of the wise. I did not independently discover most of the math. I studied, and as an engineer (BSME) I recognized time pins in scripture such as Gabriel speaking to Daniel at 12: 9-13:

“He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.

13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”



My Books

That, as any engineer can see is a word problem. The date the sacrifice is abolished sets the anchor then the 1,290 and the 1, 335 describe the timeline until the events come to pass. These two events are laid out and the math is solved in my two books.

Misquoting Logic, What Bart Ehrman Forgot To Tell You About The Coming Apocalypse And Your Place In it” is my first book and it lays out the means to the four possible positions a person can assume in these days. It is self-published through Booklocker.com. (There is a video trailer with a code for 20% off there).

Misquoting Calculus What Isaac Newton Tried To Tell Bart Ehrman” is my second book and it is traditionally published through Abuzz Press. This book lays out 9 specific predictions with the math that is a strike on timeline of history each time.

The odds God did not write the Bible through the prophets is virtually zero. I just solved the math and wrote it in the two books.

Facts Cannot Be Denied

Any reasonable court of law would be obliged, legally, to rule God wrote the Bible, through the 40 authors and that the books are intertwined in detailed complexity, based on this Objective evidence.

Therefore, having the conviction Jesus is who he says he is, I have a duty to share this light with others. That is the reason I wrote the books. First for my family members and then for people at large.

Two of my grandsons have now read these books and reported to me their understanding. That was the primary reason I wrote them.

Salt And Light

Now, having my convictions that there will be good and bad outcomes for people based on their belief about these matters I here make it plain what I am doing. I tell you this is evidence that cannot be denied.

If you are already a believer then these books will serve to provide strengthened faith. On the other side, if you are not a believer then you need to look at the evidence toward a decision.

Having shared the gospel with many in my life it is unfortunate that many times the conversation must begin with explaining what Jesus and the gospel is not about before it is possible to communicate what the gospel is about.

Faith To Believe

Paul was the apostle appointed by Jesus in Acts 9: 15 to reveal his name to Gentiles (non Jews) their kings and rulers (Paul stood before Caesar) and the people of Israel (after 70 A.D. when Jerusalem was destroyed).

Paul tells us in Romans 10: 4:


“Christ is the culmination (end of the law) of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”

Romans 10: 9-13 Paul tells us:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Amazon Is Lost In Space – Danger Danger Will Robinson

I was going to start a sister site to this one, with URL selling your book on amazon Dot Com. I actually own that domain. The site was built with one post I had written. However, Amazon is lost in space. Truthfully, here you will benefit from the humor of information I share here today.

Truly I can hear the robot relaying his famous hazard message here, “Danger, Danger Will Robinson.” Ironically Will Robinson, as I cast him here, owns more robots than anyone on the face of the earth, I suppose.

Their primary error was the recent decision to modify the affiliate commission structure range of payout commission from 3 to 6% down to 1 to 3% or somthing like that. Affiliates will be shaking the dust off their feet and moving for better commissions.

NOT SECURED FOR SPENDING???

Tonight I was trying to BUY, not Sell, BUY three books I’d found on Amazon. I don’t go there often, occasionally my Author Central page. So trying to buy books the “cookie heads”, as I call IT storm troopers, have it set up over there all goofy.

I hit forgot my password. They sent me the text like I expected. I plugged in the six digit code. Then they wanted more

security information. Then we went through four of their (PARDON ME) stupid, no I did not stutter, I said STUPID Captcha fouled up cartooney (LOONEY TUNES) letter and number spaces thingies. It never gave me the car pictures tile.

Then unbelievably, it informed me “too many failures, access denied.”  WHAT? I am here trying to buy something. I looked at my wife and shook my head in utter disgust.

 

NIGHT JANITOR SECURITY PROGRAM

The continuing saga. Several years ago I worked at Boeing as an engineer. I had something like 40 separate computer applications in the Wichita division computer system. So in their great wisdom (stand back Solomon … it splatters) they refused to let me access it all with a single password I could remember and instead made me access everything with unique passwords for each application.

Therefore, I wrote the name of each app and its unique password on a piece of common ordinary notebook paper. Then I placed it in the middle drawer in my cube. Now I call them a Rube Farms. Or the drool pool. A bunch of ladies and male impersonators gossiping over sack lunch as though chained to their desks.

Point is the amazing security team and their insistence we have far too many passwords to remember gives the night janitor complete access to all apps in the Wichita system assigned to engineers.

Amazon likewise as result of the same thing in the free world as opposed to the cubical corporate environment where, in the once free world after using a single password on every platform I accessed for many moons, the IT set found out somehow and started making me change my passwords.

Now Goofball, as I call them periodically repeats this loonacy in the name of increased security. I’ll say, I cannot even spend my own money to get a book to read and review.

This reminds me of a vending machine executive (broke down van full of candy, his dog, some pop and those little peanut butter cracker thingies) whose focus in life was making sure no one got peanut butter crackers on a slug (fake coin) or a counterfeit bill of some kind.

He had all the sensors and readers so tightly adjusted you could hardly buy anything out of his machines. The sandwich vendor and I used to laugh about this.

Likewise, an intelligent friend told me how much she paid out in credit card sale fees. A lot. But her sales are over $ 8,000.00 per month. She says without the merchant account she would pay out nothing. But the $8,000 would look more like $2500.  Add it up.

Years ago, I sold a credit card machine and processing to a Chiropractor friend of mine because he called me up and said his staff thought they needed to accept credit cards. The next month he called me and said, Oh Man I want to thank you. He informed me his sales increased the first month accepting credit cards by $ 30,000.

When, if you sign up for the Wealthy Affiliate free trial. FREE. FREE, I said free trial and are, as I know you will be becoming convinced and stay on for a year and have several thousand dollars arriving in your bank account every month, next year, get Life Lock so you’ll be indemnified and instantly notified and legally defended for any untoward financial activity.  It’s really our responsibility.

Its Life Lock or Lollipop. In the event I ever reach a point where I need to hire IT, I will make them start the day by singing for any and all other employees in the cafeteria, “We Represent The Lollipop Guild.” (google that for full effect) Every morning. In their underwear if we could get a high court ruling allowing it. In their contract???  Might be seen as an adhesive contract.  Legal talk for coerced.

So amazon missed out on my $56 tonight. Probably 56, 000,000, overall, if the truth were known.

And I told my wife, OK I’ll just go check the books out at the library, read them and review them. Yes I am almost finished venting and ridiculing the Security Nazis who have amazon’s sales and my purchasing on lock down.

The last point is this: The IT set convinced me to go with the “we’ll remember your passwords for you” encrypted and saved passwords only your computer knows for sure, regimen. Then of course, they forgot to keep remembering them for me a month or so ago.

I went rounds with googleies and finally got my G mail unlocked again. I am certain there will be more IT frustration ahead in my future. I will deal with it as matter of the perseverance required to accomplish anything worth accomplishing in this life. This is the way of things so let us persevere. And don’t forget, “Danger, Danger Will Robinson.”

Thank you for visiting my website.  Thank you for indulging my rant.  Thank you for reading.  Please come again as I will be adding more information useful to you, on this site every week.  Please leave me your comments and questions below.  I will answer them as soon as I can.  I hope you gathered the humor I have intended in this ranting and raving.  Chris.

Selling Your Own Book – Online Home Based Business

Selling Your Own Book – Online Home Based Business

The oxygen of selling your own book is getting enough people to look at your book. And not just any people, you’ll need people who are interested in your subject or subjects of interest contained in those books. Your readers are attracted to your offer, whatever your niche through what they type into their browser.

Your job in this online home based business is to offer pertinent keywords discovered through researching them. You need to have some idea what people are typing into their browser and roll out the red carpet to bring them to you. Competition comes from other website owners in your niche.

All of this research and rolling out the carpet needs to be intelligently planned and executed for success. This works for books, recordings, podcasts, pills and lotions and potions, apparel, electronics and on and on.

Brain Storming A Niche

You can retire in the gnat niche with 4 Billion people typing things into their browsers. Gnats might be a keyword. But I’m guessing it is not a very popular keyword, meaning not many simply type gnats into their browser. Surprise! I just typed gnats into the JAXXY keyword search tool here in my Wealthy Affiliate dashboard. Average searches per week 6,084 searches per month.

JAXXY tells me 1035 searches is what I could expect if I were number one on “gnats” in Google. Pretty surprising to me. Next we see the QSR number for gnats and it is not a good red carpet for us. There are 242 websites in competition for spot number one on the page for gnats. Let’s see at an average of 20 competitors per page that puts us on page 12.

I don’t think I have ever searched that deep. So our problem is way too much competition for “gnats” as a keyword.

Longer Tail Keyword, Less Competition

So what can we do? Create and search a long tail keyword and see if we can get one with decent traffic (average searches per month) but a happier result with the QSR (number of competing websites in our gnat niche. JAXXY gives a list of twenty related keywords with longer tails on the page with gnats.

So let’s see if we can narrow it down to something more useful to us in the gnat niche? I found: home remedy kill gnats, but this makes no grammatical sense. Its called google, and people don’t search goofy phrases normally.

I did a little more research and found a rich field of low competition keywords typing in “sticky traps for gnats.” Twenty keywords on that list the majority having QSR considerably under 100. JAXXY lets you save keyword lists so we could go back to our list as many times as we’d like.

Another issue is a domain name. We can search domains in the convenient single window browser setup in Wealthy Affiliate in websites and we can buy a dot com domain name if we’d like, for half what I paid for my first one at WordPress Dot Com. The search for a domain here in Wealthy Affiliate is done in the shade so cruisers can’t buy your keyword and then try to sell it to you. So we have a way to determine domain name availability and competition also. Wealthy Affiliate is well-thought-out and easy but effective to use.

The domain “trappinggnats.com” is available. You want a .com domain name in almost all cases. I also noted under the single keyword “gnats” the number one ranking title was Exterminating gnats. So we are probably on the right track here if we were going for a gnat niche. JAXXY will line you up on your niche and domain etc.

New List Of Low Hanging Fruit

Now that we have a rich list of “low hanging fruit keywords” we can harness up the horses, as I say. What we need to look at next since we now know where we can draw readers with gnat trap interest we need to target our content with keywords from our list.

“Sticky traps for gnats” has 56 for average traffic per month and 25 QSR competing websites so a few indexed pages and you are on page one. Engaging your readers through quality keyword driven content in your posts will bring traffic to your site in this niche.

I suggest to you that you can type in Google, “gnats” and then “sticky traps for gnats” to get a better idea about what I am doing here.

Conclusion

If you are already in Wealthy Affiliate with access to JAXXY you can do the actual search I have done here and get a very good idea. Kyle, within Wealthy Affiliate Online Certification teaches the use of JAXXY to research keywords, domains and goes into more detail in deeper searches and recommends aiming for low competition keywords (100 QSR or less) which we call “low hanging fruit”

Being indexed, by Google in “sticky traps for gnats” also rolls out into trapping and exterminating other annoying insect pests. I hope this little expose’ benefits you in speeding your increase in knowledge base here. Thank you. Chris. Please leave me any questions of comments here below and I will answer them as quickly as I can.

 

 

Can You Make Money Self-Publishing A Book?

Let’s Consider

Can you make money self-publishing a book? If your name is Steven King, Yes. Patrick Mahomes should self-publish a book right now. I’ be happy to ghost-write it for him. I know where to get him the highest royalties available for a POD publishing deal. For the rest of us there is only one answer. Website Visitors.

This week I was turned down by a snobby (lots of snobby people in books … English degrees and all that. (Yes, NO RESPECT for it) book affiliate program by Noseintheairbooks. (I made that up.) They know who they are.

Then another situation in which I wrote a query letter to try to get some freelance work writing for a pretty well-known publication. I had forgotten how troublesome it is to try to communicate with people in a power situation. I won’t be doing any freelance writing.

WordPress Dot Com

Then I read last night on my back office dashboard where WordPress has decided the classic editor app[appointed like a word processor needs to become the Block Editor i.e. Gutenberg. This is switching over June 1, 2020, when they retire the Classic Editor.

I wish I could take a hairbrush to them. We need as online business people another idiotic menu-driven conundrum along with Google making my life easy by remembering all my passwords and then forgetting to remember them for me, then having a security cow because they think in internet not normal human being pathways. Cookie head as I call him blew up my G mail Emails which are attached to my affiliate programs and it took me a month to straighten all that out.

Now I call them GOOFBALL and they can deal with it.

Should Be Amazon

Then a couple weeks ago I asked hey do you have an affiliate link? No. You see with an affiliate link authors could sell all the books in the bookstore and earn a living and that business would be 100 times the size it is.

Books are all about website attraction in our day. Mediocre books are flying off the shelves like hotcakes as they say. Many great books are not successful because the author of them does not know how to promote him or herself on the worldwide web.

But the machine cogs have books on the brain. Even trying to get people to write sex stuff because sex sells. Do not think that will sell with the one who truly matters. Not my problem.

Straight Shooter As Usual

If you want to promote a book, you need a website, PERIOD. You need to own your own domain. I own 2: sellingyourbookonline.com and genuinearticlex7.com. I actually own a couple more, but I’m not pursuing those sites any longer.

I am soon beginning publication of an E zine and a YouTube channel to provide information in the information age for those who have writing goals and want to sell books, also musicians who want to sell records, also video makers who want to sell or share videos, also artists who want to sell their art and pod casters and anyone else with something to promote.

So let’s get on with it.

At the end of the free trial after driving the train for a while you’re going to want desperately to continue and get the full access to all the training in Wealthy Affiliate University and unlimited use of the JAXXY keyword tool.

Review of The Week – Angela Hoy

Books in review fits seamlessly here, this being a website to learn not only online book selling for authors, but other creators as well. Creative content producers from any genre find that online business sells whatever it is the creator has to offer. Recording Artist, Bloggers, Podcasters must all have a successful traffic strategy to win the day.

The book review I plan to do weekly of course depending on time as allowed. It is further fresh content providing value to my visitors who wish to choose books with some insight as to what is between the covers.

The books I will review are aimed at our goal to sell more of our creative results online whether it be books, songs, movie scores, screen plays or what have you.

Staying with that theme I will begin by reviewing my own publisher’s book. Angela Hoy has accomplished much in this area of our interest. She owns Booklocker.com self-publishing. I believe, based on firsthand experience this is simply the best place to publish your book in the Print On Demand (POD) industry.

Her book, Profitable Email Publishing, How To Publish A Profitable EMag by Angela Adair-Hoy Writer’sWeekly.com, gives a great overview of the subject of publishing a monthly, bi-weekly or weekly online news and professional magazine. I am currently thinking about what to name mine.

Angela Says: “My E mag, Writer’s Weekly.com generates tens of thousands of dollars in profits every year. Yours can too. This will be the purpose of the Books in Review pages and posts in this website. Generation of traffic for our websites and quality content and services providing value to visitors to make them returning readers.

Angela and Richard are my publishers at Booklocker.com and Abuzz Press. They genuinely care for us who are authors in their business, Yesterday, as an example, I was waiting on this book and another I had purchased at booklocker.com. I mentioned it to her telling her in passing I was still waiting for delivery, due to the COVID-19.

Angela knew I wanted to make use of the book. She had one of her staff send the E book to me in an E mail. Customer service like this is normally not found. So I am happy to begin my reviews here with her book.

Very Useful Book

Content in a book, like content in a website post, page or EZine must be of value to your readers. The value in the book under review is stated concisely by the author, Angela Hoy, herself in her Preface where she says this:

“My E mag Writer’sWeekly.com generates tens of thousands of dollars in profits each year. Yours can too! Sales of my e books alone generate more than $5K in revenues.” This book is obviously a benefit to Angela, her business and you and I.

The book is concisely written to provide interviews with several other successful EZine Publishers, their stories and the success facilitated by them deciding to publish these online magazines.

These include, Chris Gore Film Threat E zine. After three years he then boasted 84,000 subscribers. Jerry Parkins, A1 Freebies Online and A1 Paychecks Online whose motto is “Try to be the person your dog thinks you are.” And the incredibly successful Ray Owens Joke A Day who then had 150,000 subscribers after beginning by sharing jokes between him and 8 buddies.
Angela at the date of her book being published in 2001 boasted 37,000 subscribers to Writer’sWeekly.com

Amazing How To Outline

Angela explains her book is not a technical assembly instruction for providing the nuts and bolts of E zine assembly. She lays out the resources you will need and provides links to those resources along with brief explanation why you need to follow her lead.

From marketing account so you can take credit cards on your site, to where to obtain HTML software and on to boards and groups to begin promoting your E zine it is all here. A truly amazing virtual smorgasbord of everything you’ll need to begin publishing your online magazine.

All of this laid out for us by one with a proven track record beginning as a single mother a back story she shares along the way to her current life as a very successful publisher along with her husband Richard.

Publishing at Booklocker

I know and work with Richard and Angela as an author on their list. They are people I am proud to know and proud to recommend. Reading Angela’s article in her E zine Writer’sWeekly.com shows you what we are talking about here and confirms my testimony to her unfailing integrity at every step in the process of having my first book Misquoting Logic self-published through Booklocker.com and then Misquoting Calculus published by their traditional publishing wing Abuzz Press.

I have read this book and plan to put her advice into action very soon. I highly recommend this book as a must read for any author wishing to intelligently follow the pattern set forth by Angela Hoy as one who has achieved great success in the publishing industry.

Final Recommendations

As an author, I recommend Booklocker.com for publishing your works. Please tell her I sent you. Yes I benefit if you do. I recommend her because I am utterly satisfied with my experience in publishing my books with Richard and Angela Hoy. Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for reading this post. Please come back soon as I will be writing more very soon. Chris.

 

 

Example Narrative Story- Unveiled Mysteries Book

The title is a quandary but that is where I let the keywords lead me this time. The greatest mysteries book, here partially unveiled. The writing you choose to present can be any example narrative story you’d like. The number one book in the World is the Bible. It is also the world’s greatest mystery book.

The Lord boats in Isaiah 46: 8-13, challenging the world “I tell the end from the beginning, from ancient time what is still to come.” Further he says, “I will do whatever I please.” Tell words we can confirm as accurate, with the modern text, from the Dead Sea Scrolls found in 1947 near the Dead Sea.

The Dead Sea Scrolls carbon dating shows 200 BCE for a date of the scrolls, give or take. All the books of the Jewish Bible (Old Testament) were found there except Esther. The antiquity is established fact.

God Speaks For Himself

So we know for sure Isaiah wrote the words in chapter 46 above long ago. The Book of Daniel is also among those found and also accurate from antiquity. In chapter 8 of Daniel we are told a narrative of things to come after Daniel inasmuch as four kingdoms would arise.

The angel explained Medo-Persia would defeat Babylonia, then Alexander the Great (Greek Empire) would defeat the Medo-Persians, then a fourth kingdom would rise to power in the middle east.

Here is the text from a modern translation into English:

I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. 4 I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great.

5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. 6 It came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at it in great rage. 7 I saw it attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against it; the goat knocked it to the ground and trampled on it, and none could rescue the ram from its power. 8 The goat became very great, but at the height of its power the large horn was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven.”

Actual History The Angel Revealed

This lays out world history as told in advance to Daniel by the Angel. We will see why I here, confidently says this. The narrative explains the Seleucid empire after Alexander died. All laid out in my book Misquoting Logic. Free excerpts and the video trailer there with 20% Off discount code.

Jumping ahead to chapter 8: verse 14:

“He said to me, ‘It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.’ ”

Looking at Daniel’s vision we see him standing in Babylon and the first event in his vision is Greece (Alexander the Great) the “rough goat” attacking the ram (Medo Persia). The Battle of Granicus is recorded in history and occurred in 334 B.C. as related in Britannica.

The King James Version (KJV) says 2300 days. But evening mornings is better translation and indicates Passovers the national Jewish Holiday commemorating the Exodus from Egypt.

Confirmed In Our News

History tells us of Granicus and Alexander’s Daring Attack on the Persians and their defeat. Counting 2300 Passovers forward from 334 B.C. we arrive at 1948. The year Israel declared independence on May 14. Eleven minutes later President Harry S, Truman recognized Israel as an independent nation.

The next morning the United Nations chartered Israel as a member nation. Israel miraculously then won their war for independence against the neighboring countries trying to destroy the Jews and their reborn nation after 2,000 years, as Daniel and Isaiah predicted.

Isaiah 66:

“Hear the word of the Lord,

you who tremble at his word:

“Your own people who hate you,

and exclude you because of my name, have said,

‘Let the Lord be glorified,

that we may see your joy!’

Yet they will be put to shame.

6 Hear that uproar from the city,

hear that noise from the temple!

It is the sound of the Lord

repaying his enemies all they deserve.

7 “Before she goes into labor,

she gives birth;

before the pains come upon her,

she delivers a son.

8 Who has ever heard of such things?

Who has ever seen things like this?

Can a country be born in a day

or a nation be brought forth in a moment?

Yet no sooner is Zion in labor

than she gives birth to her children.

9 Do I bring to the moment of birth

and not give delivery?” says the Lord.

“Do I close up the womb

when I bring to delivery?” says your God.

10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her,

all you who love her;

rejoice greatly with her,

all you who mourn over her.

11 For you will nurse and be satisfied

at her comforting breasts;

you will drink deeply

and delight in her overflowing abundance.”

Skeptics Mocked By God

Skeptics have complained for years saying Daniel was written after the historic events he predicted. But we see here he is accurate into the jet age. In my two books we find Daniel is accurate into the Space Age and then into the Information Age. In my book these things are all laid out in detail with historians who wrote about these events contemporaneously with the Battle of Granicus. The words of the Bible make precise hits on the timeline of history. Exactly what and Exactly When and Where.

In my second book, Misquoting Calculus I show nine clear predictions with the math proving the Bible’s reliable accuracy in statistics as a mechanical engineer. This is objective evidence that would stand up in a court of law. Free excerpts there and the Video Book Trailer with 20% Off Code

 

Number One Best Seller

 

The Bible is the number one selling book of all time, in the modern world. It is also the greatest of mystery volumes. Recognizing the word problems and the numerous time pins there I began to investigate the word problems.

Please leave you questions below and I will answer them. Leave you comments below as well. Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for reading. Please come back again, I will be writing more very soon. Chris

Chris Queen Look Up Now – Chris Queen YouTube

Hello to my readers who are also writers and readers who create entertainment and art.  Hello to all the rest of my readers and visitors too. Today, I am having a bit of fun with my recent discovery.  I have new keyword opportunities.  Chris Queen Look Up Now is a phrase people are typing into their browsers.

Chris Queen on YouTube, also is an opportunity keyword.  I invite you to type those phrases into your browser.  When you do you will find me there on YouTube.  In 2014, I released the record titled, Look Up Now, through CD Baby.  This I thought, in error, would get me in front of millions and some of them would buy my records.

The internet doesn’t work that way.  There are close to 4 Billion people out there searching the web.  That is a huge opportunity in potential financial reward if you can harness up to many people.

My First Book

Then in 2017, I wrote my first book.  “Misquoting Logic, What Bart Ehrman Forgot To Tell You About The Coming Apocalypse And Your Place In It.”  My publisher, Booklocker.com provided me a promotions manual which I read and tried to use to promote my book.

Need a Website

In it I was told I needed a website that I own, meaning the domain name which is in essense the deed to an exclusive space in the internet.  My domain here, sellingyourbookonline.com belongs to me.  No one may use that address except me.  So I went to WP.com and paid $99 for a site and purchased the domain, genuinearticlex7.com.

While I read the manual, not all of it made sense to me.  Even keywords were a mystery to me.  So I had a manual but did not adequately understand it.  The publisher is not in the internet and website teaching business.  They are book publishers.  They have a website full of books they sell.

Broken Ribs

After a couple years of mostly unsuccessful book and CD promotion on Facebook, pretty much exclusively, I gave up, until I could find more knowledge.  I broke some ribs in 2018.  Decided to try to get some income from someplace while I healed up.  RoryRicord.com was what my search yielded.

Rory has changed his business name to RRR247.com.  Rory has a “virtual shopping mall” online and for a couple hundred you can have one too.  Just exactly like his.  So, since Google, Bing, Yahoo and any other search engine frowns on identical content, Rory and a select group of insiders put you to work modifying that content to “make it your own.”

As a former insider, there, for a period of months, I worked the phones 20-30 hours per week to retain people who called in with questions or angry they were not getting any help from their mentors.  I was very good at it and soon had a full plate with 20-25 students.

Multi-Level Online Shopping Mall

His scheme is poorly executed in that I, basically a beginner though a fast learner, was following his teaching and regurgitating it to newer people.  Working 60-80 hours per week setting Skype Appointments with those students and bringing them along to Rory’s real aim aside from SEO which is multi-level marketing programs.

DC Cellars was a wine program which yielded very good rewards and by spending time with my students I managed a very high success rate in converting those people to the wine program.  The DC Cellars opportunity has since evaporated in bankruptcy.

So I am unsure of what the new replacement program is with RoryRicord.com/RRR247.com.  But it is not, websites built on organic traffic from search engines.  Rory’s right hand man, when I retained a woman who had a huge E mail list moved in pushing me aside and stole her business out from under me.  Conflict ensued, and not owning my own domain, just like my publisher told me, I was out of the club.

Thank God.  The forty computer apps all with different windows and passwords etc, was a nightmare to navigate.  Thousands of identical websites, “virtual malls” in his network with individualized verbiage is NOT a winning formula for Search Engine Optimization or a long term business strategy.

I did learn a lot about the basics of setting up a website, and made my money back, however, I cannot recommend rrr247.  In the end you have no business there that cannot be taken from you at the whim of Rory and his sidekick.

Knowing a whole lot more after that experience I reached out to my publisher and asked her where is a reputable online business learning system, so I can learn to promote these books.  She sent me an ad from the internet from Wealthy Affiliate.

I discovered the definition of magnificence.  No only do I no longer work 60 to 80 hours per week, but I own my own domains which can be moved anywhere I like.  The training here is not my responsibility to accomplish; rather Kyle the co-founder of the now near 20 year old business, teaches all affiliates through his Online Certification Training.

You have one password retained by the site. And you can change it but you’d be crazy too do so.  I hit login and I’m into my Dashboard, the single window navigation along the left of the page gives you access to your entire business in that One Window.  Eight menu items is what you use.

Training takes you to his Online Certification video university.  Videos are average of 15 minutes and you can start and stop, rewind, fast forward and replay at your will.  When I get interrupted, I press training and go right beck to where I was in the lesson.  I can replay it, go to the internet and google the subject to learn more and come right back.

You will be able to hit the website key along the left, go to your site back office and perform the task Kyle is teaching and then resume the training right where you left off.  Kyle teaches at a speed anyone can follow.

This training is an incredible value and Carson and Kyle the co-founders are able to provide it very reasonably due to the intelligence of their program and the sheer volume of their successful platform.  I bought my domain names for half the price of my first one at WordPress.com (WP.com).

Whoever you are if you have books, records, videos, podcast to promote you will exponentially increase your knowledge of how to attract people on the web to your information and promotions.  You will learn all the ways to monetize your site and offers releasing you in a year, give or take from outside annoyances like jobs etc.

Whoever you are you cannot find better hosting value anywhere in the world.  Enterprise level hosting.  Lightning fast, secure beyond compare, and 25 free sites at siterubix.com and 25 more as .com, .net or.org.  The cost is NOTHING to try this out.

That is the truth.  My name is all over my site and posts.  I am sure when you get here we and the rest of the thousands on the Live Chat interacting at all hours because it is a global company, access to many mentors in the top learners and teachers also.

I talk with Kyle often.  Carson too.  And all you have to do is enter an E mail address and press Sign Up and the system generates your encrypted password on the spot and remembers you and logs you in every time you hit login.  Check it out for yourself.  You will thank me.  We will be friends for life.

Yes I Want To See For Myself
