My name is Giulia and, for all my sins, I am the author of this site.
Who and what is Giulia
First of all, let me thank all of you for taking an interest in my site and for visiting it. In brief, I work part-time for a local authority, and have a wonderfully supportive family, my husband and my teenage son. And of course the baby of the house, our Indy.
What prompted me to concentrate my endeavours on this site is so I could share with you the loving and fun experience we have every day since Indy became part of our family 6 years ago.
But also, I am trying to set up my online business, in an effort eventually to be able to reduce my working hours of my office job in order to dedicate more time to my family and to our ageing dog. So, what better way to start than to combine the need of an income with the passion of my life, my dog!
My mid-life crisis
When I first came to this country over 20 years ago, I was young and ambitious. If they had ever told me I could work part time to have more time to myself, I would have answered: ‘What do I need more time for? My work is also my time to socialise with work colleagues, to affirm myself and to earn money. The corporate way is the way forward!’
Fast forward 20 years and my mind-set has completely altered. As I approach middle age, I realise that I have sacrifices family life for the sake of work. Because of my work commitments, and due to financial restrictions, I found myself having to work full-time and missing out of beautiful moments in my son’s childhood which, I know, are never going to come back. I regret this so much!
I also realise that due to work, I have sacrificed not being at home as much as I would have liked with my husband and for my husband. We keep struggling to find time for holidays, and still see each other only a couple of hours in the evening which we spend having dinner, watching a bit of telly and then going to bed ahead of another working day when we wake up again. The weekends pass by in a flash with us trying to catch up with housework that we could not do during the week!
And then, as I mentioned above, there is my Indy. We have had him now for nearly 7 years. When Indy came in to our lives, my son was 10. They were both just wonderful together! So much has happened in the meantime, so many wonderful memories, but all gone far too quickly.
I don’t want to miss out on any of this anymore.
And that is what has pushed me for the last few years to find a way to earn online.
What’s this website to do with money
There are many ways to earn online, and I have come across many not too reputable schemes which, fortunately for me, I found out in good time they would lead me nowhere.
Then nearly a year ago I came across Wealthy Affiliate, a Canadian based company which has introduced me – FREE OF CHARGE – to online affiliate marketing.
Wealthy Affiliate not only taught me to build my own website. I could have my website and talk about my favourite subject, my dog Indy at the same time. That in itself sounded heaven!
But Wealthy Affiliate also taught me how to monetise from a blogging website: through affiliate marketing.

I am hoping I shall be able to give as much information as possible about Border Terriers, but please do leave your comments with suggestions (always welcome) and questions. I may not have the answer in hand, but I surely will research for you to the best of my abilities.
