    * I’ve been keeping track of my HART-Empire Network Earnings Online ..

    Here is the link: HART-Empire Network Earnings Spreadsheet Document

    The earnings are on an “Accrual” basis, where I’m documenting what I’ve earned, but monies will usually come in the following month, or (if ever) when I reach the minimum threshold for release of my earnings for payment. The expenditures are on a “Cash” basis, as I pay something related to my online earnings, I just load up the spreadsheet and modify it.

    Summary of Gross Earnings 2007/2008

    * January 2007 – $344.61
    * February 2007 – $372.37
    * March 2007 – $492.41
    * April 2007 – $491.85
    * May 2007 – $620.99
    * June 2007 – $632.47
    * July 2007 – $672.66
    * August 2007 – $701.78
    * September 2007 – $706.09
    * October 2007 – $801.12
    * November 2007 – $859.20
    * December 2007 – $863.36

    ** Year-To-Date Gross Earnings (Jan-Dec/2007) – $7,558.91
    * Average (YTD) $20.71 per day or, $629.91 per month

    * January 2008 – $981.88
    * February 2008 – $1,076.12
    * March 2008 – $1,596.30
    * April 2008 – $1,872.57
    * May 2008 – $1,767.04
    * June 2008 – $1,857.06

    ** Year-To-Date Gross Earnings (Jan-Jun/2008) – $9,154.14
    * Average (YTD) $50.30 per day ($61.97 in Jun/2008) and Average (YTD) $1,525.69 per month in 2008


    June 2008 increase gross revenues somewhat back to April 2008 levels. I fear there may be a decline in the upcoming July and August months. I am even more burnt out from work, and a wanting and desire to spend the summer weekends (combined with a 2-week summer vacation) over at the cottage.

    Everything I do online, is gearing for the fall – mostly, being my schedule. YES! I made a schedule, and hopefully I will get around to completing this schedule over the next few months.

    In the meantime, I know the slowdown is a direct result from the lack of posting on the sites around my network. Instead of the usual 10-15 blogs I have been contributing to (in addition to the paid writers) I am probably closer to 5 blogs that I contribute to. I have to work on that despite my enjoyment of having somewhat of a vacation.

    And, despite it all .. in July I do expect to break the $10,000 level of gross earnings year-to-date – not too shabby, eh?

    I didn’t notice this on my other blogs, but today it was a big deal with a few of my Battling For Health series of blogs.

    No matter what I tried to do .. the result was the same. When you upload images in either visual or non-visual mode .. and then click the INSERT button, the flash screen would turn white – freeze – not close at all, and no image would be uploaded.

    Not Good!

    I can imagine how frustrating it must be for the writers .. not being able to insert images. There is a feature where you can insert images from other sources .. but, this is useful when sites are already online say, on Flickr or PhotoBucket etc. But it’s much better to store the images on my dedicated server – at least, I like it better. I don’t have to worry about sites disappearing, or images being removed, or even sites going broke and shutting down. And, my job is to make sure that my writers just have to focus on their talent and skills – writing. It’s just not right for me to say .. “Well, it worked for me on my site~!”

    So .. I looked and looked and looked .. and – I FINALLY FOUND AN ANSWER THAT SOLVED MY PROBLEM.

    Here it is in a nutshell

    If you jump to the website, or “view site” from within the dashboard of my blogs .. the bottom taskbar of the browser window was displaying battlingforhealth.com

    If I go into my dashboard, option/settings .. my WordPress address (URL) and Blog address (URL) both was displaying this address BattlingForHealth.com

    You see .. I like to capitalize the first letter of each word of these type of domains, like AndYouWill.com and even worse on HARTmarket.com sites!

    All I did was change the options from BattlingForHealth.com to battlingforhealth.com and everything worked perfectly after that!

    Found at WordPress Support by N8uri

    * Everyone: I’ve got the fix:

    Check your browser’s address bar at the top (where your http://blahblah.com address is)

    If you’re coming from any site that uses a masked forwarded domain, it won’t work. When you insert media into post while your browser’s address bar has the same domain name in it as the one listed in your blog’s settings > General – WordPress Address URL, it will work just fine.

    I tried it with other tabs open, Firefox and Safari. I don’t think it’s browser dependent. The reason for inconsistency is probably from visiting forwarded masked domain sites, coming from frames, and all other sorts of ways in which your address bar will say something besides what it should.

    Hope this finally puts this huge issue to rest!

    Let’s recall the history of Rich Manalang’s Wp-Amazon plugin

    * Pre WordPress versions 2.0


    * WordPress version 2.1+

    > Worked, if you used Firefox and in Visual Mode

    * WordPress version 2.2-2.3+

    > Worked after an initial delay, by rigging a fix found in the support group
    > I documented the needed changes in my previous post back in November

    * WordPress version 2.5+


    But .. Have No Fear Fellow WordPress 2.5+’ers!

    Nick Ohrn has saved us all and created a NEW AND IMPROVED Amazon plugin that works on wordpress version 2.5.1 (the latest wordpress version at the time of writing this post)

    Download it at WordPress

    * Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet

    The nice thing about this new plugin, is that it works with BOTH Firefox (FF3) and Internet Explorer (IE7) that I have tested it on – in BOTH Visual-Editor mode and non-Visual-Editor mode. Although, I should mention that in Internet Explorer, in both modes .. I was only able to insert the small image into the post.

    Highly Recommended

    … by HART!

    Thanks Nick!
