This is my first serious attempt at a blog. I chose the name “the platinum line” as Platinum is a precious metal associated with the number seventy. When you have been married seventy years you celebrate your platinum wedding anniversary. Many years ago I worked in a laboratory and used platinum electrodes. Platinum is a dull grey metal but it can be an important catalyst for many things.
My tag line is “financing the fun after retirement” is because I think there is no point telling you how I love travelling at home and abroad without also giving you some idea how I finance my lifestyle. Some posts in this section.
Some of these pages contain affiliate links which means that I may receive a small payment if you click on my links but I only recommend sites that I use and trust.
The fun Part
I have also been writing posts about places I have visited and walks I enjoyed. Recent Posts .
A few sites I found useful when I began
This is a free resource for novice or experienced bloggers. The money shed also has a very helpful blog and forum for all things related to earning money at home.
This site has a lot of helpful information about using social media such as Pinterest and Instagram.
Emma is an award winning money blogger who has a lot of information on her site about earning money from home and also runs her own course “my blog My business” about monetising a blog.
I have also followed the wordpress blogging fundamentals and commentating basics. The mistakes are my own.
