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