Happy New Year 2017
A new Year-2017: A time to look back and a time to look forward. 

Just taking a moment to wish everyone a happy New Year and share some of my accomplishments related to my writing. Pinterest sent me a notice. I always add the pictures from my on-line writing to Pinterest. Here is how that worked out for me in 2016.

HubPages
My writing on HubPages as been going along well I sailed past 250,000 views in December and now have a total of around 263,000 views. I have 120 different essays.  Take a look. I'm sure you will find a few you like.  http://hubpages.com/@catherinegiordano

NIUME

I started writing for another site also--Niume. I only started two weeks ago and I have over 2000 views already. This is a fun site because I can write short posts—I can do one in under an hour sometimes. I think of them as gum drops—short and sweet and a little bit addictive. I've done 14 posts so far. You can see my posts here.
  
Niume pays for referrals. If you sign up, you and I will both earn a dollar after you do your first post. This is a very easy to use platform. You can write on whatever topic you like and then share it on your social media.  (Maybe you would like to write about and post pictures of your vacation, for instance, and then share it on your facebook page.) Plus you can make a little bit of money. Here is my referral code. Please click on it to register on the site.  https://niume.com/104144

Blogspot
And I still do my blogspot blogs. I’ve been doing a lot about politics. I post them onto my blog that I started for reviewing and commenting on the Bill Maher show. Now I just use it for politics.  It’s been getting about 6,000 views a month. I’m up to about 47,000 views.

Pinterest 
My Pinterest views have been piling up also. Pinterest told me that in 2016, I had 168,506 views. I don't earn from Pinterest, but if you click and get to the post that used that picture I get my usual fraction of a cent.

So when you come across a social media post for one of my writings, please click and take a look. I earn a fraction of a cent for each view—a tiny amount, but it adds up. Plus, if you see a product advertised, I hope you will click on that also. The amazon ads earn me a small commission if you decide to buy something even if it isn’t the item I advertised.  Again it adds up. 

If you have been reading my posts, thank you. I hope you have enjoyed them.

Happy 2017!
