Always Keep Your Data Backed Up

I am not exactly the best one to talk about this probably as I am not one that often followed this rule.  But I did have a situation occur that made me realize how important it really is and that yes something can happen to me too.  Not that I believed nothing would happen to me or my computer, I just didn't think like it would if that makes sense.  When you work at home, you use your computer for a lot if not everything.  It is important to be able to access all of the important stuff about your business or whatever job you work at home doing.

This isn't a major catastrophe for me since most of my stored info on my computer was mostly pictures that I have on other devices such as cameras and cell phones, but it is a bit of a headache still.  I have stuff on one of my laptops that I cannot get now and tho not as important as some people may have, I have files of information I was going to blog about. 

I now know the importance of backing up!! My newer computer completely died on Black Friday.  Yup just shut down and no power, no lights, nothing.  I have heard of some great places online to store information, but I am not sure what ones to recommend yet since I have not tried any yet.  I am still working on collecting everything and remembering things that were on my computer.  I should be able to have the data extracted if it is not the hard drive that is damaged. 

I think for now I will make cds every couple weeks when I have important files (and I do not recommend storing personal information on your computer, that I never have on my computer.)  Anything about my work at home adventures or my other blogging adventures will make their way to discs quite often for now.  I would like to find a secure and reliable place to store my files online and not just on my computer (without stock piling discs), but at the moment I am not sure who to recommend.

I just wanted to share this experience with all of you, it can be devastating to anybody and if you work at home it can be very devastating.  Just losing a computer is bad enough, but information you were going to use makes it that much harder.

Easy Work at Home Writing Opportunity

Just an important update here:
Bubblews was a legit site that had paid me a few times, but they are no longer here.  They did close down for whatever their reason was, tho I am guessing it was hard to keep up with scamsters and the way the advertising was working.  Sorry but they are no longer a place to write.

Looking for a new and great work at home opportunity? Yes this is completely free to join, no upgrades at all.  It is a writing opportunity, but not like the freelance sites that you write specific articles for a client.  This is a work at home writing opportunity that is quite easy and the articles are your choice.

The name of the site is Bubblews and it is a fun site to work on! It is a bit different from the rest as it pays you for any pageview, comment or like your content gets.  You write a minimum of 400 characters in a post and you get 1 penny for every unique view, comment or like that it gets.  I know you are think 1 penny isn't a lot, but other sites don't pa…

Earn a Second Income Working at Home

For years I have been testing various work at home companies and for a while I was dormant on my blog because I always have to make sure it is a legitimate way to earn money.  For a while I hadn't seen any that was really worth mentioning, but now I would like to talk about a company that has been around for 19 years.
SFI is a company that I started to really work with this month and I have seen so many positive things.  I was seeing a lot of good things about SFI and I decided to jump on board and try it out.  I am very excited about them as a company.  They make it easy to succeed really! You do have to work, but they provide a lot of valuable resources to help us succeed.
