Bluetooth Wireless MOKO Keyboard
The MOKO Keyboard is a great write-anywhere-device. Particularly convenient when you need to type on your smartphone. If you have anything other than the fingers of a little person, typing on the keypad on your smartphone is a particularly unfulfilling, frustrating experience. Combine that with auto-correct and I can’t imagine a more suitable exercise in Dante’s inferno for a fake-news journalist having to meet constant deadlines from a Demon Editor in Hell.
I love the MOKO Keyboard’s ergonomic design and just the angle of it as it fits nicely to the positioning of my hands. It’s also small enough when folded to fit in my back pants pocket or jacket pocket. It’s less than the thickness of a smartphone and it comes with a USB cable for charging. The charge lasts for 60 hours of continuous typing. It costs $25.99 on Amazon and my affiliate commission is 4% of that at: $1.04. Just click on the text on the keyboard where it says “CLICK HERE” to order one.
I know I can buy the ZOGI Keyboard on Alibaba (which is identical to the MOKO) for about $17.82 if I order 1000 of them, but I need just one, and since I’m the only one I ever see in my local coffee shop using one, well, yeah, not sure there is demand for 999 other keyboards in the immediate future, so instead of trying to make a business enterprise of selling the keyboard, I’ll just reap the benefits of inspired writing flowing from my fingers anytime, anywhere.
I also got this cool Smartphone Ring that I apply to the back of my smartphone cover case. It allows the phone to stand up either in portrait or landscape position. I thought it was pretty clever of myself to figure out the correct placement, especially since when I type on my screen, I like to see more of my screen in portrait mode. Click on the image where it says, “CLICK HERE” by the ring on the back of my smartphone (yes another affiliate link to a $4.99 item where if earn 4% commission, I can get $0.20).
Lastly, I use Evernote (no affiliate program with them) to keep track of my notes that I type. It’s great because the FREE version works cross-platform and works on 2 devices, so I can type it up on my smartphone and cut and paste it into my blog on my desktop computer when I get back to my office. I also get 60 MB of free storage, so as long as I keep typing out text, and at the rate of about 300 words per day, I should be good for the next 10+ years at the free level, unless Evernote decides to raise their rates. Then, maybe I’d just switch to the ultimate free way to send text — email.
So, yeah, that’s my mobile blogging life. Feel free to use any and all of this information for your benefit. Click on the links or don’t.
I just want to see if Amazon really does follow through and pay affiliate commissions, I think it’s all just a ruse. If, I receive any Amazon Affiliate commission, I’ll let you know in the comments.
Speaking of Amazon, I read about some guys that were buying out Walmart’s out of merchandise and re-selling it on Amazon. As an example, they bought out 182 “Millennial Monopoly” board games at Walmart for $20 and resold them on Amazon for $77. Retail Arbitrage (that’s a great word, look it up – buying for a low price in one market and selling at a higher price in another market). Here’s more details on Retail Arbitrage: https://bit.ly/retail-arbitrage or watch the video below:
By the way, aren’t bit.ly links the best? They allow you to take a really long unmemorable, impossible to type or share link, with something that is much shorter and you can customize so that you do remember it. Check them out at: bit.ly (no affiliate commission for this one). BONUS: If you add the plus sign ‘+’ to the end of any bitly link, you’ll see the metrics.

So, perhaps, I’ll invest some money and figure out what to sell on Amazon and check my local product warehouse at Walmart. Too bad to hear about Sears going bankrupt. Sears used to be the Amazon in their day in the early 1900’s. I remember as a kid reading through a thick Sears Catalog, circling the items I wanted for Christmas and strategically laying the catalog open on the coffee table hoping my parents would notice my circles on the pages. Perhaps Sears should have sold their stuff on Amazon too.
Why is Amazon successful? One click buying.
The BUY NOW button: Who Invented it?
I remember this company called CD baby back in the late 1990’s that offered the first “Buy Now” button. Derek Sivers was the founder of CD Baby and he describes his successful business wherein he allowed musicians to record their CD’s and CD baby would sell them for them for $5 and the artist would keep the rest of the profit. You can read about his journey in the book: Anything you Want which is really just compilations of his Blog at: sivers.org/blog or get the book by CLICKING HERE (Yes, this is also an Amazon Affiliate link). I really like Derek’s book because it’s short and sweet and he does reveal some great information about his thoughts as an entrepreneur.
If you’d like to hear more of Derek’s story, watch this video here:
