Learning Something New :: Every Day:: It's What Kids Do

Updated on March 10, 2012

Read Aloud to your kids

Learning Every Day

It's a great day to learn something new. Let's start with what kids learn and how they learn it. Most of the time, kids learn by seeing and doing. If you want to teach a kid to cook, then get them in the kitchen with you; if you want them to learn to read, then read to them. These are simple enough rules to observe, but something has been forgotten along the way.

We are here, on the Internet, trying to learn marketing and SEO strategies, we write our blogs and network socially, hoping to make money by helping others find what they are looking for. Often times, and this may or may not surprise you, what people are looking for is money.

They want free money, free tips on making money, how to make money, blogging for money...

If you include the word Free and Money along with Marketing and Tips, you are targeting a very large market. People who want to make money with free marketing tips.

The competition for this is very high, of course. And you, who are trying to learn it yourself, may not be the best teacher, unless you follow the "those who cannot do, teach" theory. Do not get fooled by the e-mails that are coming in telling you that they can teach you to make money for a fee. Especially steer clear of the ones who say they will continually charge you a monthly fee. There is so much free on line content that is available you don't need to pay for any how to guide. There are no short-cuts to fame and riches, you cannot "sleep your way to the top" this is a risky business.

If you invest no money, then you are going to wait to see a return on your time invested. That is just the way it works.

A Teacher on Proof Reading

Content is Key

Original content that is helpful and informative is the key to success on the Internet, people will come and read, if you offer what they are looking for. They will leave, if what they are looking for is not on the page.

I am sure that you have experienced that annoying moment when the Google search has turned up a dozen or more useless links on the first page? It's so frustrating to click on a link that leads to a page of links, having none of those take you to what you wanted to find!

But back to teaching by showing and doing, lets not forget that kids also learn what not to do the same way. For instance, if you burn your hand while teaching your child to bake a cake, they will likely remember to use a pot holder. Reading those useless pages should teach you that there is a better way to write content.

The best way to become successful on line is to find someone who is successful at what you want to do. Think of it as a personal mentoring program. Think Freud and psychiatry, if you want to be a psychiatrist, you read through the cases of psychiatrists who were successful and learn from that. If you want to be a lawyer, you study legal precedents.

If you want to make money on line, you need to follow those who are making money on line. Unfortunately, many of those people who are making money on line, are making it by selling their knowledge of how to make money. You have to find someone who is making money by doing what you love to do.

I love to write, therefore, I follow writers who make money writing. If you love to garden, or love to debate politics, then you need to follow the example of someone who makes money doing those things. If you love to cook, you might follow the example of Rachel Rae.

Use Your Words, and Choose you Words Wisely

Keep Learning

The writing of this hub has been more than a lesson for you and more than research for me. I have gained from it a new sense of worth. I hope, as it is brief, that you understand it is a showcase for my new inspirational speaker, my new mentor, Taylor Mali.

Although he may seem irreverent at times, and at times his double-entendre is risqué, he has taken my heart and become my new hero. He is a teacher and a poet, he stands up for what he believes in. He has a web site that you can see below. I hope you have enjoyed this introduction, and I hope that you have learned, as kids do, by entering in and observing this man. He is a master of word usage, he has confidence in his own skill and knowledge.

If you master your knowledge, and have confidence in your skill, then you too can use your words to convey the message that your reader was searching for.

Keep trying to learn something new every day, it's what kids do. Kids are young in heart and mind, and young in spirit too. They are not disappointed and jaded, they are not frustrated. Let the kid in you shine through your work. People will come.

What Teachers Really Make

Source Material

The inspiration for this hub was provided by The Reformed Broker. The article contained an e-mail claiming that third grade teachers make $85,000 per year. This is false. I know for sure, but in researching the fact, again kismet, I found Taylor Mali.

You can find Taylor Mali's YouTube Channel here.

You can find Taylor Mali's Web Site here.

Helping Mothers and Others

If you would like to earn $2000 to $5000 in residual income per month within the next year, please contact me. You must also commit to helping others.

If you need help with something else, like coping, or writing, please feel free to contact me as well. Just click on the Contact Faybe Bay link on the right.

Have a Great Day, and please, leave a comment or rate my hubs if you like them. Thanks!

      Hi Epigramman; never underestimate anyone is a very good idea for a hub. I put Kate Bush on my Small Circle of Friends hub for you. It is a place I take requests for videos, LOL, like a DJ. Big Hugs, all is well.

      Thanks Angela! I will have to check out those hubs! Often travel and people will get traffic because we all like to hear true stories!

      Now, about the reading: I feel that way too, 3 to 4 seconds and I know if I have found what I want to read or not. There are some sites I won't even click on if the Google search turns them up, because I know that all they'll have is a link to a link that will go nowhere. I hate that with a passion, and even unplugged my PC once because it was going to that site, and taking to long to load. The thing is that it is a common site and many people get away with writing three lines that you can find in Wikipedia! I don't know why Google still turns up pages that have so little information! The problem is, that is our competition. Until people find out about us, our competition is winning, and they aren't even trying. We can't win if we don't give more than two or three lines of pertinent information, there are already sites doing that, we have to be the authority on our subject, or else be totally original. Like your travel stories, totally original.

      You are right about the original content, I really enjoyed your hub, I have couple of hubs that are based on my travel and people experience, I get big traffic on these, they don't bring me a lot of revenue, but the page views makes me feel good. And you also make an excellent point on the internet competition, people are getting picky about what they read, I know within 3-4 seconds after I open a site if I will read it or not!

      Ah yes, Ivorwen, while that is true, I ran across some that were written with the express reason being to sell the product. One in particular looked like a news paper. I saw an ad for an article I wanted to read, and all of the "news links" actually lead to the product being reviewed, not the news item advertised. I was so upset!. I had been doing research and was planning on using that review as a source! Well, let me tell you, just because there is a review does not mean it is reputable.

      When reading those reviews that look like an actual news paper, or e magazine, make sure those other articles that surround the review are real links, and not just decorations to give the review credibility. Some even go so far as to quote USA Today, and The Today Show, among others. I got ripped off by one of those last year, when I was at my lowest point. It only cost a dollar. It ended up costing me over a hundred dollars.

      I have found that one needs original content, that people actually search for. You are right about there being so much free information on the net, that paying for something is ridiculous. My husband always get excited over those spammy adds with ridiculous claims. I always tell him to research the product. If it really works, there will be dozens of blogs, telling of the success.

      Thank you Ladybird, I hope you got something out of it. I know it may not seem impactive, but learning is important, we cannot be good writers if we are not learning every day.
