So the other day I felt the urge to leave a little “cheap shot” remark on SuiteJ’s most recent post. It went something along the lines of “you bastards don’t comment anymore” and I was openly speaking to all my previous regulars who haven’t given me the light of day, but had no problem showing ol Big Head some love – even though he posts less than I do! It’s all good though – I’m not bitter at all. But you guys definitely know I’m the type who is quick to hit the “potty mouth” button in the middle of a investment bankers conference if that means I’ll get some attention and a free portfolio analysis. I cleverly made a statement, and it paid off because I got both SuiteJ and Neal from Nota Bene Consulting to hop on over and increase the comment count on my last post to beyond 4.
Updates and stuff…
Since 2009 has started, I’ve been battling this invisible force of poor task management. I find I’m getting easily distracted, and I can’t blame it on blogging this time. Despite my distractions, I’ve managed to make some great progress this month, especially in the networking and site flipping departments. Here are a few goals that I set which I have accomplished thus far:
- I wanted to flip 8 sites this month, and as it stands now I’ve sold one, with two auctions currently live, and two more auctions going live before the end of the weekend. Providing they all sell (which they will) I have to develop 3 more sites in the next 15 days. Easy peasy.
- I wanted to have an exclusive partnership with an uber-talented freelance writer to outsource my content for site flips and various other niche projects I have lined up this year. After a few emails to my Big Headed mentor, I’ve now been working side by side with one of the coolest, most talented writers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. His name is Chris. He is 26, and has been making a full-time living online for the last 5 years via freelance writing, affiliate marketing and blogging. If you would like to learn more about how to make a living as a freelance writer, he’s got a pretty sweet course available over at ChrisBlogging.com. This guy is a fucking machine when it comes to cranking out keyword rich, unique articles – I love it!
- I obviously set some goals regarding marketing and networking in the popular Internet marketing forums, and I’ve successfully stuck to a regiment, slowly increasing my presence and thread count. On the networking end, I read a really cool thread by this cat named AJ who’s been making a killing with affiliate marketing blah blah blah… but let me tell you something, this dude is the real deal! What led me towards him was his focus on presenting value to the buyer, and how important of a role that plays – as well as how so many people over look it when trying to get the sale. Anyways, rather than linking to the thread, we ended up connecting and I’m going to have him do a guest post, as well as he agreed to become my next “20 questions with…” victim! I’m definitely keeping an eye on this dude – he’s got a new membership site coming out that looks sick! I’ll keep you guys posted.
- I’ve started my first ebook, and yes, it will be on site flipping. I’m so sick of all these garbage-ass site flip products that keep coming out.. for real, 90% of them only cover the basics, and to be honest, it’s not enough to help a complete newbie make $3000/month as they claim. Not even close. My ebook is going to be dead simple. I am basically writing from start to finish my exact process of creating a site within 8-12 hours and cashing out between $200-$300 profit. I learned this process from a crackhead with a lap top who sleeps behind a Jewish church by my apartment – and I’m going to be sharing it with the world. Quality, not quantity – that is how you make real money of flipping websites.
Anyways, I think that’s about it for today. I hope nobody comments on this so I can prove my point that once you stop commenting on other peoples blogs, they stop caring about you. And once you stop posting, they stop reading. And once you start making money, people start hating you.
IM KIDDING!! Man, you guys haven’t learned yet! I absolutely dig each and every one of you people.. and It’s a good thing that I’m not seeing you guys around as much because that can only mean one thing – you’re being productive elsewhere! And that right there makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside – kind of like when I stick my hand down my pants.
