Check out Wayne T’s shop on Mercari!

Simple tasks are not always easy to figure out until I stop trying so hard. For instance, when posting YouTube and More last week, I wanted to refer everyone to my particular items for sale on Mercari, but failed to figure out the process I was sure existed.

Too Tired to Think!

Now I know and hope you will check out what I have to sell in the United States by following the link.

Life After Release -10

After Prison Experience

On one of my adventures in downtown Atlanta, after my release from serving a 420-month federal prison sentence, I captured the photo of this beautiful bus while walking around the city snapping photos using a smart phone. Only Dumb Phones existed before my 1988 arrest and conviction. But at least you could find a phone booth to pay with coins or by calling collect on such a device, instead of having to pay a lot of money for a smartphone and phone plan.


Ad: Speaking of Phone Plans, here is my promotion for Tello.com where I earn 10 Tello Credits for referrals who use my referral code (P3RHP9H9) to purchase a low-cost plan.

Since these posts are read world-wide, I am certain that those in different countries without all of the available technology used in America may wonder how a phone booth looked. Though this photo is of a much older phone booth seen in 1988, this photo does show what would now be a dumb phone, if one could be found somewhere, when compared to a smart phone that I can use the camera of to walk around town taking photos.

Moving on to a different theme, when I first began writing this blog my intent was to post this brief message to refer readers to my page on Quora.com, where I may also earn a commission for those who use my link to sign up for Quora+

Anyways, for a quick blog post with a punch, I am re-sharing a popular answer on Quora that continues to receive a lot of attention because it relates to the technological challenge many returning citizens face upon release. Please be sure to follow the comments in the thread. In particular, what I wrote in response to a comment to help the returning citizen protect himself from scammers:

“Along the lines of security, adding two-factor authentication to an important account is best; especially, if you can use an Authenticator App, such as the one offered by Google or Microsoft. SMS messaging is better than not using any additional measure of security, but that may also be compromised. A lot of SPAM calls may leed to that becoming a security threat.

“Using a credit card versus a debit card is also best, since using the credit card does not require adding your pin number.

“For additional security, in the Manage Account settings on credit or debit cards, add a notification for any transactions done for the lowest amount available so that you will be notified of any transactions posted, and if not you, you can turn off the card immediately and change all associated passwords.” WTD

Thank you!

YouTube and More

Shooting for Stars

Somewhere in the horizon, I see a star that I am shooting for that I know I can reach if I stay focused and do not stop trying to succeed.

Is this the beginning of stardom, StraightfromthePen on YouTube? Maybe, once I learn more about how to use YouTube, and find a house to create a physical YouTube Studio inside of so that I can really focus on what I am doing. At this juncture I am in a learning curve and an experimental stage to learn what works and what does not.

Crypto Is Coming

Crypto is Coming Ready or Not.

Photo by Alesia Kozik on Pexels.com

01/08/2023, Update: The linked article at the end of this blog to Yahoo.com Finance presents strong evidence about the presence and growth of cryptocurrencies around the world. Since I posted this blog a lot of things changed in the world of finance, as I wrote below, with many stocks and cryptocurries dropping considerably in value. The YouTubers I listen to refer to some of the more stable stocks and cryptocurries as being ON SALE.

In my opinion, investing now may still be risky but in reference to Bitcoin and Etherum, I expect that the price will rise within the next few months, but … I am not suggesting to go out and purchase any just because I continue to buy small quantities. (Webull that I promote, allows people to buy dollar amounts or coins.)


Several financial institutions have been investigating how to implement cryptocurrency to plan for what is to come, ready or not (I’m not writing about that aspect of Crypto).

Numerous things have changed since I originally posted this blog last year, including big losses in the crypto and stock markets; however, in recent weeks the markets regained some of its lost territory.

Of significance to this blog, BlackRock, an American multinational management corporation, and the largest asset manager, partnered with Coinbase to make cryptocurrency trading more available to financial institutions. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/blackrock-teams-coinbase-crypto-market-120000847.html

The Metaverse

The Digital World continues to expand with the Metaverse plans into the future, where trillions of dollars will be made as people venture into a virtual world.

At the end of this blog, I embedded a YouTube video for more information about how the Metaverse will work and affect the world in which we live.

In anticipation of the Metaverse, companies like Facebook/Meta will lead the way into the new world, unless something changes.

Cryptocurrencies will play a large role in the Metaverse as payment plans and numerous other necessary functions for something so vast that most of our minds cannot grasp its magnitude.

Note: Based upon my experience, the free stocks I recieved were not valued over Eleven dollars, with most being less than $4, which was still a great deal just for opening an account or referring others.


Stocks with Josh on YouTube

Stocks with Josh is one of my favorite YouTubers who I believe is legit and does NOT Pump and Dump cryptocurrency or stocks (influence purchases to increase prices and then sell personal shares). He teaches his viewers how to read the charts and seems to truly want to help others.

I am not paid to promote him or the others on YouTube that I sometimes refer to in my blogs.

TOP METAVERSE STOCKS

According to many, the Metaverse is the future. Personally, I have bought a few coins that will find a place inside the Metaverse. Right now I own small quantities of Sandbox (SAND), Decentraland (MANA), and Enjin Coin (ENJ), which should play some role in the Metaverse.
