Sometimes luck falls into life at the most curious times. Look for and be ready to seize the opportunity when it occurs.
I enjoy writing and have been working (on and off) on a stage play for 12 years or so. My writing partner lives out of state and our schedules don’t allow for much collaboration.
I got lucky when I found “C” on a WordPress post last week. She is an excellent writer and is badly in need of money because of tough times.
I need a partner to help me finish and “C” is willing to trade her writing talents for pay. Win-Win!
My point is simple: keep your eyes open and be willing to take a change when the time is right. From the other side, be sure your talents can be found by someone that needs them.

As mentioned earlier, Homepreneurs has added a website – homepreneurs.net – to its blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts. This website is more flexible and will be easier for our readers to use and navigate. As always, all articles and postings are free. You will notice the navigation is similar, but expands on this blog. We welcome your comments, opinions, and thoughts.
We plan to use this blog as both a preview platform and for shorter posts or temporary articles. The website will have full articles and more static content. Important content will duplicate on both. Breaking and critical news will display on the blog.
Homepreneurs was launched during the big recession and is designed to provide our readers with information needed to start and run a home business. Many home business ideas are available along with success stories about people who have started a home business.
Homepreneurs firmly believes that running a business is the future. With unemployment rates still high and expected to stay that way, a home business is likely very necessary. We are here to help you achieve your business and career goals.
With best wishes,
Homepreneurs. New Day. New Opportunity.

Does a big difference exist between a website and a blog. In some cases – yes. A website is often larger with static content; a blog is dynamic with shorter snippets of text. Both are very similar: blogs or websites are personal or corporate or used by non-profit or government. SEO or search engine optimization is similar and each provides information, opinion or both. Websites might be a storefront, blogs not as much. Both are hosted, though blogs are often free or inexpensive. Websites are larger and are often hosted by the company or third parties. Blogs – WordPress.com is an example – is hosted by WordPress at minimal cost to the blogger. Finally, websites are more likely to make money, whereas only the larger blogs will get a return on investment. Blogs can lead to book deals, if the content and topic is appropriate.
In either case, every blogger or website content writer wants to drive large numbers of visitors on a regular basis. The best blogs or sites have millions of visitors per month. Homepreneurs – by contrast – has a few to several thousand visitors per month. Listed below are the top 5 websites and their approximate number of visitors:
1) Google.com – 185,000,000 monthly visits
2) YouTube.com – 160,000,000 monthly visits
3) Facebook.com – 150,000,000 monthly visits
4) Amazon.com – 100,000,000 monthly visits
5) Yahoo.com – 95,000,000 monthly visits
