ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Hello.

Frank Atkinson here. I wanted to tell a little about myself and my website babyboomersinterests.com. I was born in the biggest state in the 48 contiguous states in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. TEXAS!

Summer days in Central Texas

Summer days in Central Texas

I have to say that 268,820 square miles is a lot of land mass, and a population still growing at 26.4 million residents. Can you imagine having to drive 3 days just to get to one of our borders? We are Big!!

AUSTIN TEXAS

I was born in Brackenridge hospital in 1947 in Austin, the state capital of Texas, 2 days before the TEXAS CITY DISASTER of April 16, 1947.

Texas city burns to the ground!  581 souls lost!  All but one of the Texas City fire department Fire Fighters perished in the explosion that leveled the entire City.

The explosion caused by 2,300 tons of ammonia igniting and causing a chain reaction of fires and explosions from ship to ship in the port.

BABY BOOMERS

Who are the Baby Boomers?

We are the baby’s born after WWll between 1946 and 1964.  A lot of men and women retiring, or getting ready to retire and leave the work force.

Did you know that there is more women baby boomers than men?  The women out numbered the men by two million.

I guess I could say I am a  Baby Boomer, as we are called. Baby Boomers Interests range from Health Care, Retirement, starting new careers and enjoying our lives after working all these years and paying our dues. These dreams are being shattered by this awful economy.

WOW. HAWAII HERE WE COME.

WOW. HAWAII HERE WE COME.

Don’t get me wrong.

Now that I have retired, I LOVE IT, wouldn’t trade it for the world. We are being saddled with higher debt and our savings and 401 K and our company sponsored retirement contributions are being eaten away to nothing.

I lost my 401 K so I can relate. I was forced into retirement when my company closed the construction division. Fired!  Yes, fired 52 men and women, my self included, the CEO and all the department heads.

No lateral transfer, no other positions available, We were just a number and our number was up.

JOB HUNTING

Feel my pain?

16 million men and women out of work because of this administrations failures and I am out looking for a job!!! Gee!! I am a Master Electrician, 66 years old, as high as I can get in my field, and no job. After being out of work for 2 years and no job in site, I QUIT!!

Finally decided to retire.

I know what you are going through. Been there, done that. Some of you are able to hang on to the job you have and just hope they don’t tell you you have to go because your getting to old.

It is hard to retire when there is no money.

SUPPLEMENT YOUR INCOME

Walmart greeter, Home Depot, Lowes. These are all good viable second income sources.

THIS IS WHERE YOU START

THIS IS WHERE YOU START

If you can get them. Wealthy Affiliate is who I take my on line training with. May be I can help.

Listen.

I didn’t even know how to turn on a computer three years ago. No kidding, I knew nothing about computers. But my wife (Ginny) has been using computers all her working career. I mean Ginny started using computers when they had PUNCH CARDS.

Can you believe it?

I asked WHY punch a bunch of holes in a piece of card board  to tell  this machine to print out a piece of paper saying what you just printed?

Sounds like a copy machine. Just type it I said.

You know how that went over, right?

ON LINE

You can make more money on line than you can at Walmart or any of those others.

Ginny’s mama is 86 years old and working on the computer. By gosh, if she can do it, I know dern well I can and you can to. “Y’all aint got nothing on me”

Wealthy Affiliate will show you how to get started.

Kyle and Carson will take you by the hand and show you step by step how to get into Internet Marketing the right way and teach you how to make a good living at it.

Fellow Baby Boomers.

If you are already retired you know it is tough getting buy with your retirement.

Unfortunately some have nothing but Social Security and a little savings to fall back on. Me included Boys and Girls. With the cuts in Medicare, we worry about our future health and our limited income.

I never thought I would retire, much less be with out a job and forced to retire. But life “aint” all that bad. You can do something about it by looking at Wealthy Affiliate and their programs.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Hi Frank,

    It’s wonderful you have found something to keep you occupied as you start winding your life down into retirement. It’s an inspiration to many elderly folks who are still wondering how they are going to while away their time when they retire.

    Wealthy Affiliates can definitely be a very good platform to learn many things about the world of technology and affiliate marketing. Thanks for the insight and for sharing. Keep it up

    I think that working on an internet business is the way forward for many Baby Boomers. Many of the active Wealthy Affiliate members are in our age group. Do you really have to drive for 3 days to get to your borders? Here in the UK I can drive to any part of the mainland in a couple of days! Very best wishes to all Baby Boomers.

      Hi Mark TEXAS has 268,820 square miles, that would be 696,241 km2, and26.06 million souls and growing. Yah! We are big. Biggest state in the contiguous 48 states. Statehood granted December 29, 1845. They say granted, but you have to realize Sam Houston only allowed TEXAS to join the United States with certain conditions. One of which is that we retain ownership of all Public Lands, and we have the right to secede from the United States. The Federal Government doesn’t own one foot of land in Texas without the Citizens agreeing to sell it to them.
      I agree that an internet business will be good for some Baby Boomers because some of us are going to have a hard time getting by with what little we have to retire on. You can thank our present Administration. Bush “aint been in office for a long time”. “Nuff” said. Thanks for the visit. To Your Success………Frank
