Lou16 is a name that I have written under for over a decade online. Many of the sites that I used to write on under this moniker have closed down. Lou16.com was set up as a signpost pointing people to where they could find me as one content site after another closed their doors. If you haven’t yet heard about Lou16 and are thinking who is this person then check out the Who is Lou16? page.
If you were looking then you’ll want to check out the full list of her sites, blogs and Zazzle sites on the Lou16 Index page.
I’ll be blogging about a range of things on this blog because as you can see from my index page I do like a variety of different things! You might find me profiling a t-shirt, sharing a cool gift idea I’ve come across or even sharing tips on blogging, make sure you stay in touch so that you don’t miss anything!
I’m going to try and stick to just writing about a few things on this site and they are gifts (I love finding the perfect gift for someone), zombies (any other zombie fans out there?), dolls and earning money online.
How did I come up with these subjects? Well I love compiling gift guides and I also love looking at different websites and ‘discovering’ cool things which I think would be an awesome gift. I do have a blogger based blog on gifts which I’ve had for a number of years – Unique & Funky Gift Ideas – I do prefer to write on my own domain these days however.
Zombies fascinate me – I have always kept an eye out for zombie gift ideas as I have a brother that has loved zombies for years. A few years ago (about halfway through season 4) I was loaned a dvd of the first season of The Walking Dead. It’s safe to say that I became a little zombie obsessed after that!
Why I write about dolls I’m not really sure. I kinda stumbled on collectible dolls when I was doing a gift article and I kept discovering more and more cool dolls and action figures and before you know it I had written several pages which were very successful. That was on a now defunct site. I don’t have another site for dolls or action figures so I thought why not add them to this site and that’s what happened!
As far as earning money online – there are just so many people writing about it, why should you pay any attention to my two cents worth? Way back in 2009 I was having a discussion in a ning group (are these still around?) and I realized that I was earning a lot more than the others in the discussion. I shared what worked for me and what I had assumed everyone else would know (I’d only found things out through reading articles/blogs online and trying different things out myself) and what do you know not everyone knew what I knew!
I think there’s plenty of room online for everyone to be a success so I thought I’d share some of my tips for earning money and if they help someone else then that’s good. Do I think you should do everything I tell you? Not at all, what works for one person’s niche may not work for someone elses which is why I read a lot and take different courses and find what actually works for ME. Even the way I do things is different for different sites as I find that not one system is a one size fits all system.
Anyway here’s a few of my popular posts from some of my various different sites at the moment

As you can see I really do have a lot of different websites already, because let’s face it no one is about just one thing so why only write about one thing? Once again welcome to Lou16 and enjoy your stay, if you’re not sure where to start here are some of our popular posts at the moment –
