Review of 50/50 Crowdfunding – Another dodgy Ponzi scheme?

As I’ve been moving in the field of affiliate marketing and as this site becomes more popular, I am seeing more and more offers from other marketers. These sometimes come from direct email to the site, but more often I’m contacted by people on Social Media. That is a normal thing to happen, as others try to network with people who are broadly interested in the same thing – Making Money Online. However, as I’ve posted elsewhere on this site, there are some really good opportunities out there and there is some rubbish. Some of the rubbish is illegal and … Read The Full Post

The beginning of my journey to make $5,000 per month online

Yes that’s right, two months ago I set myself a target of making $5,000 per month online. I’d hear people make the claim that it could be done, but I was always skeptical. However, after taking the training at Wealthy Affiliate, and reading a lot of stories from there documenting how people have done it already, I rapidly began to realise that my target wasn’t at all unrealistic. These were normal people, all over the World, fulfilling their dreams of quitting their jobs and having more of their life to do what they wanted. What I did realise was that … Read The Full Post

Dark Nights in deepest Northumberland

Keilder observatory, Northumberland

For my birthday this year, I got a ticket to the Kielder Observatory in Northumberland to go look for planets! It’s one of the best places in Britain for observing heavenly bodies (apart from some dubious top shelf mags) as it’s darker than a goth’s hairpiece, so you see things up there that wouldn’t be visible from the average Durham back garden. I’d never been to Kielder before, even though I’m old enough to remember them turning the taps on and filling it with water, so this is exciting for me. Astronomy was one of my biggest hobbies as a … Read The Full Post

Being Buzz Lightyear – My problems with stiffness

For about 3 years before I finished, I cycled to work. I decided that it was going to be good for my health. I bought myself a bike and chugged the six miles there and back every day; about 30 minutes each way. It was good to get out in the fresh air, although it was restricted to British Summer Time. I didn’t like cycling in the dark. Most of the trip was on cycle paths and there was only about 3/4 mile where I was on open road, so pretty safe. One night, back in my home town and … Read The Full Post

Durham City developments and the small trader

Durham City seems to have been a building site for a long time now. The building of the two roundabouts at Leazes Bowl and Gilesgate took an age to complete, disrupting traffic and visitors alike. Then there were the repairs to Millburngate Bridge, and further digging up of Nevilles Cross. Now we have the changes in the City centre. New student accommodation is being built in Claypath, the Old Hospital on North Road and at Neville’s Cross. The old Passport Office demolition and the remodelling of the Millburngate shopping centre mean that the West side of the river will change … Read The Full Post
