How to be empowered by Online life

Updated on November 30, 2013

Online life poses a huge opportunity to us all

First thing you do in the day is grab hold of your mouse button. The only thing that seems to have magnetic pull on your hands, as your eyes are also tricked into the gravitational field of the computer monitor.

Yes this is a well known fact that us humans are totally addicted to cyber space, and living without a internet connection isn't quite as exciting anymore for some odd reason. So you might ask yourself, "Self, how did things ever get to become like this?"

Hmmm... good question. When the internet has only had a life span of about 20 years, us humans have seemed to allow it to blanket our once lively experiences of interacting with one another day to day, and now we seem to only do it virtually for the most part. Could this be the path of least resistance for our unseen future, and for the future of our children's children?

Inquiring minds would love to know. Personally I think that the online world can be utilized as a powerful form of helping us all to succeed, and when I say succeed I mean truly earn our keep.


How does anyone earn anything online?

Well to tell you the truth it all takes a great deal of luck to become truly successful online, and this is a not so well known fact. The reason why I type this fact, is because people are on the Internet in the billions. That means that a very small percentage of them will succeed due to the almost impossibility for every single user to locate one another. Shear difficulty in numbers complicates things further, in fact imagine a person actually trying to visit a billion web addresses. That would take them forever. Plus most of those web addresses are unknown to begin with, which is what makes the online world by far the most tricky place to attempt at striving for some sort of success in life.

So how does anyone get noticed amongst the billions of people who are also striving to do much of the same each and every day. The competition surely is fierce when it comes to social sharing, and social media outlets online that also blanket the average viewer with a slew of options, advertisements, gimmicks, and the likes. All this madness that occurs makes it appear impossible for anyone to surface up out of all the noise sort to speak, and to actually get to become well known for their truest efforts.

Earning online for those who haven't the budget for marketing, purchasing of ad's etc... will need to resort to making social communications with those they either know already or find ways to meet with on multiple social networks and professional communities. Getting paid in itself can occur via Paypal, or direct deposit to a bank account of choice. Affiliate ad's networks help those who own websites and blog sites. Using video powers and Youtube you can get paid in a massive way depending on how awesome your content you come up with, and how people choose to react to it there. Google Adsense is the place where you get paid from for Youtube, and they track all the analytical data on Youtube to help you get a feel for where all the views are coming from.

Rub shoulders with the Hubpages staff that's how :) just kidding lighten up!


How does one get noticed online today

One thing that actually does make the standing out factors occur for any individual is how they manage to position themselves socially, how they manage their online content they offer up, and what platforms they choose to deliver their content to hopefully get noticed more.

This is certainly not something that every person on the globe can perform, mainly due to time constraints and other factors of maybe the lack of information for such an individual whose made these attempts. Once you realize you have tried everything in your mental capacity and abilities one may become discouraged thereafter, especially when they have made a earnest effort and literally nothing at all has surfaced from it all.

That is a let down, but not the end for most people who are determined to break through the shell of non-acceptance. The real issue is for the most part, many people whom are in networking communities may have turned towards becoming overly promotional alone, and never learned to pay it forward for others they may make contact with.

Actually if and when a person gets a chance to make the connection with another online user, its the very point of access when they will either make or break a potential acceptance for their content they indeed have to offer up. This is something that many folks have issues with, because they may not know how to approach a stranger online via a digital portal like a inbox messenger. This poses a sort of communication block and has a long term damaging effect on each and every person making such poor communications.

You can use these silly tables if you wish on your articles too :)

Do you get the drift poll

If you in fact get the drift of what this hub is stepping in, answer below?

See results

Channel your excitement bar!

Ok folks, lets try to do something wild for a change behind our computers screens.

  1. First you'll need a webcam, smart phone, video camera, or camcorder
  2. Second you wanna crack open a smile from cheek to cheek, because your a special person today, think happy thoughts while your at it.
  3. Third, realize that you are now on candid camera for the world to see, so be on your best behavior while filming. Don't alert the masses to the fact that you're aware of it too, it enhances the appeal of your silly nature. "You know the more natural you."
  4. Fourth, Ok this ones huge people. You are going to need to press the record button, maybe while your tripod is getting hot and heavy holding up your camcorder or video camera.
  5. This isn't a step actually :) You can also go at it and make a cool awe inspiring video log aka Vlog. Yup making logs of your daily travels of thoughts are worth millions today when done with a flare of joy, cheer, complete and utter outrage, ummm... what else Oh yeah humor, and a drop of screen transition magic won't hurt neither, maybe some background music to top it off.
  6. Sorry that last one was long for not being a step. Hah!

This will happen to me if I disobey the online Gods, such as Google has done to most of us on the web. You know the poor quality content publisher types

      All is well Bravewarrior, I never forget where I come from :)

      Yeah I'm now at Bubblews Bubbling away to the top of Bubbleville hopefully. The new gig never worked out fully, they were offering to low of a salary, so I chucked it and said "No Deal"

      Thanks for caring as you've done in the past for viewing and sharing with me in my hub writings. I hope to be able to communicate much more as time goes along this winter, and to help support folks once again. I do miss HP a great deal.

      Thanks @Mary615, you know how it is when many of us stay at home 24-7 online most of that time, writing everywhere we go on our cell phones, and sneak in time when our spouses and family are around as well.

      The river keep poring out more and more words that way it seems, as many people are casually gallivanting along with their regular daily lives. Funny stuff that can happen for us, once we stop to look back. I just hope people will be willing to read any of this crap I place into existence online.

      Much of it is real life experiences, much of my bubbles are leaning more towards the fiction category, but you know it was time for me to start story telling anyhow, and depart a bit from real life. Who knows whats next, you know Mary.

      The learning process continues, Mike old buddy. One thing I know for sure, and you alluded to it...if you don't try you certainly will never see any rewards.

      Carry on buddy; good things lie ahead for both of us.
