Inner circles

There has been alot of talk about inner circles, some of it since the infamous "death of IM" report was unleashed. Inner circles or mastermind groups where members are these who make money online can be a great place to get your own money making ideas and expand on them making them better.

Inner circles are nothing new but with the power and width of the net there has never been a better time to utilise the power of "mastermind groups" or "inner circles", which ever you prefer to call it.

Now you can harness the thinking of people anywhere, anytime... ON anything.

There is nothing stopping anyone setting up their own mastermind griups, and if you feel its a good idea then go for it.
It's a win win for all of the group.

Choosing who your join will make a big difference on the path you take, after all it is useless joining a group that gives you hardly any benefit, so you DO have to think it through carefully to make the right choice.

The best thing to do is choose those you can learn A-LOT from, and those that will have a few members that you learn alot from, better to be a group that is by someone you can "model" your own path on, so using their expertise to move you faster along your chosen path.

It is for this reason I am now a member of Willie Crawfords "inner circle", here is someone who has a great track record of success in writing AND marketing, making money online, something I want to learn more about and utilise in my own path to success.

Most of you will know who Willie is, maybe from his , to some, outrageous declaration to make a "million dollars in 90 days", which as far as I know he is on track to do...THAT is incredible itself.

Think you could learn alot from that?
I know I could... AND I will. ;o)

I would bet those who learn the most from it will be those who ARE part of his "inner circle".
As good a reason to join as any!

I am suprised by what I have ALREADY learnt from it, there are great interviews to be had as soon as you join, 20 of them to be exact and there will be are more.

I learnt at least ONE thing from each of the interviews...thats 20 NEW things I have learnt within hours of joining.
There are audio's and PDF''s of the interviews, so I obviously had the PDF's, but nothing stopping you learning from the audio's on your mp3 players at times you wouldn't be doing anything...like in queues, or sat on the bus, in the car etc.

I am excited about what else I will learn from him and those who are members, some great names there.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to progress fast and steady in their online work.
Take a look at the site for yourself and seriously think about what you could learn from it.

This is the one inner circle I AM glad I joined....see you on the inside where you will be able to benefit from every member, including on the forum set up there and they will help you make money online.

Writing for profits

While surfing about online it becomes obvious what really helps the owners make money online, for most websites its not graphics, banners, ok... maybe some will earn money from them but the main earner is the "words", words sell, words give you the information you seek.

I see some great writers out there yet know there are a vast amount who struggle to make money from their obvious talent, sadly there are some who think writers shoudn't earn through their writing skills!

Huh? Why the hell not?

That to me is plain crazy... will those naysayers donate an income to those who struggle to earn from writing?
Will they contribute to putting food on the table for their familes?

If so... please feel free to contact me and you can use my paypal as I could do with a meal or two being paid for...if not... then stop telling others how to earn their income!

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of naysayers out there who are quick to denounce things like that.
What do they gain from doing so?

For those of you who DO wish to earn more from your writing skills it pays to listen to those who already earn from writing.

You wouldn't go to a farmer to ask how to learn to earn from writing would you?

You know something else, even those that are hugely successful from their writing skills will get the naysayers comlaining about it.

Sod em!

If you are a naysayer moaning about it, why not educate these on how else to earn a living, in an alternative way instead of having a bash, if you can show them a better way... go for it!
If not...shut up about it.

Let those people make money online how they can, after all they have to eat, clothe their families, pay their bills etc..

If you are one of those who would like to earn from writing, then go for it!
Not sure how or who to learn from?
Never fear, go to those already doing it, and doing it well.

The people I'm keen to learn more from are those that the top earners use to write for them, there is no doubt that those writers are doing well, you only need to look at the earnings the top guys generate from the words these top writers create for them.

It's the words on these top guy's sites and their marketing skills that get that cash rolling in.

So who better to learn from?

There has also never been a better time to start generating profits from writing with all the PLR rage that is here, and here to stay.

Not everyone can write well, but most people can write to a level that will get them earning, the problem is most don't try, or even know where to start.

Well I have just the thing for you, want to generate some cash then now's a good time to start, but don't forget your writing can be generating money for a long time to come, even years from now.

I have read a great set of books which I KNOW will get me going in a huge way and there is nothing to stop you doing the same.

Don't listen to the naysayers, they will STILL be naysayers a year from now.
If you get started now, think about where you will be a year!

Write something every week, be it an article, or a blog post or even a chapter of a book, you will have a great deal of money generating content out there, or a book ready to sell and you will be making money online.
If the money side is not the main focus, you could have other benefits like back links to your site, blog etc.

Having written alot of blog post's myself over the last 2 and half years I can see the value of those links being out there.

So where should you learn to earn from writing?

As I say from those who have written for the big guys, or those who have earnt well from their own writing skills.

You don't need to be a fantastic writer, just a good one, and you know practice makes perfect, well it certainly makes it easier.. ;o)

I just read a great package last night that I KNOW will help me a massive amount, also their credentials speak for themselves... those big guys most of you have heard of have used the writers skills to help them generate massive profits.

Take a look for yourself and start honing your own writing skills.
Heres the link to see what a great package it is.

The need for a video


I would love to join the make money online with videos bunch but being deaf  I don't like to see videos myself unless captions or subtitles are there to help me with them, it's frustrating otherwise.

I will be able to create a video, probably do one of me..why would I want to?

Well I know that it will shock a few people once they see the real me, meaning it will surprise alot of you and the perception you have of me... it's human nature to have an preconceived idea of what I am like, the way I speak etc... and I KNOW that people will be surprised because they don't expect a deaf person to speak like I do.

Most people have some vision of what a deaf person is like, it is a shame that it often is a negative thing but hey... it is understandable...we all do it.

I can't wait to give you that shock. ;o)

It's something I have also thought will make me seem more human to you all, not that you don't think I am human of course, just that it will bring me closer to you and your perception of me will change a huge amount.

I mean a HUGE amount... those who know me offline will know exactly what I mean.

I think it will also help my online work alot in many ways... I have some great ideas for videos to help me make money online.

I aim to do other types of video too.

Would watching the sunset here on chesil beach be appealing?
Would a tour of Portland be appealing?

Would a video of me singing talking be appealing?

Screensaver with resale rights!

I know there are lots of you readers out there who would love to have a product that you can sell to make money online or use for building up your list, by way of giving an incentive to join you.

Knowing that it's not so easy to create something in such a short space of time, I would like to offer you a tip you can utilise in your profit building, or list building efforts.

There is a very good reason I say this, I have done this myself when I had issues a few years ago and I know it can be done.

I have even thought about doing a newer updated better version of the one I did the last time, it sold and helped me make money online for helping my offline issues.

Better still I may do niched themed ones, these could be used by others to build their list with that said niche.
This would be done with resale rights. I make money from them, they either make money directly from them too or by building a list via giving them away and monetising that list further down the line.

The niches would be diverse...depending on the viability of them.

But if you already have some pictures you like, in a niche you feel you can utilise a screensaver for I will happily create a screensaver from your pictures. (contact me for any questions etc)

These could be from wedding pictures, family pictures etc.. whatever you choose.. there is only ONE rule..they must be YOUR pictures. OR you must have the RIGHT to use the pictures.

I do hope the smart ones here will see the potential of this. You are all smart... ;o)

You don't have to create an "ebook" or a massive blog, or dozens of salesletters pimping stuff to create some income or asset like a list from which you can create an income.

Think of something different for your target market than what everyone else is offering and you stand a better chance of being noticed in the niche which will help you to make money online from that said niche.

Web rage man jailed..

Quite a shocking bit of news here in the UK about the first "web rage" jailing as a result of using internet chat rooms.

This is a clear reason why you should not let your kids or teens use these chat rooms.

We all know the dangers of those unsavoury people that can pray on kids etc, but this is grown men.

You should never let others know your whole name or address in chat rooms, it is just far to risky to
do so.

It can be to easy for someone to track someone else down, more so if personal information is shared such
as addresses etc.

People should be aware that not everyone is as nice or calm as yourself.

Take a look at the report here from CNN news.
Something was bound to happen sometime but you always hope that it wouldn't.

A warning to all those who use chat rooms, forums etc, you are not so anonymous in reality.

Bad targetted ads

Well what in the world happened there?

In the last post I shared a great video, a moving video.
If you have yet to see it... go take a look..

One man...one board, a nice heart.

Thanks to a sharp eyed reader, (thanks Michelle) who points out that one of the google ads above it had shown a sexual abuse ad?!
How the hell does THAT happen?

From what word does google get the relevance from?
Hug?

Is that unbelievable or what, even a bit disturbing?

How do they get that from such an innocent word and post?
Beyond me... but it is not something I want on my blog.

Why do google even allow ads like that to show?

Any idea?

Liars and forum abusers

As you know I frequent a fair few Internet marketing forums.

I guess some people will never get it though, every forum gets these types.
You know the ones I mean, they hide behind some stupid userneame like makemoneyonline or some crap..
I just tapped keys so sorry if anyone DOES use that username!

But I digress...they are more often than not a....
A no mark.. no name no mark.
A loser... or a bully.

It is these that feel they can abuse others and abuse the forum's Private messenger functions.

I got news for those idiots... the mods see EVERYTHING.
They see where you are, what thread, what you pm people if they choose to keep an eye on them that is.

They know everything..

I don't NEED to justify myself because I stand behind what I say.

These people are the sort that will say someone else said this, yet the truth is they said it, just haven't the balls to stand up and be honest.

When you get a messge from some no mark that says something
like..

"Are you racist? someone was bad mouthing you and I wanted to ask"

You have to wonder why they say something so daft.

I mean...being deaf I know full what well what predjudism is like and how it can be hurtful, so there is no way in hell I am going to be prejudiced?

Is there?
I mean it wouldn't even make sense...it is bullies and lowlifes who have that sort of attitude.

So... I replied.. "Who would say that? Do they have any proof that I am racist? Have I posted anything racist?"

And they reply..."well no, I saw something I didn't like that you posted" (thought it was someone else?)
Then provide NO proof, or won't point to the post in question.
Well you know...what an idiot they must be!

Fancy making up something like that? Weirdo...

Fancy making up some mystery person that supposedly said this or that?

From THAT one PM I come to the conclusion that they are a liar!
What other conclusion could I come to?

So...they then post something to the forum thinking..
"oh well at least others will see this and maybe believe me so I can do some damage"

What an idiot...childish and pathetic...do they REALLY think the mods etc won't know?
So...I forward the PM's to the mods...not that I needed to, they know anyway.

So who will that hurt in the long run?
Not me...

Stupid people...stupid act of childishness...and a liar to boot.

Oh yeah...there is a name for them...TROLLS.

What is gonna die next?

Moving on from the latest problems I had with the blog here and the copy issue, now that has been absolved and is no longer an issue as far as it goes, lessons have been learnt and that is what is important.

Credit to the copier, Linus his name is, for acknowledging the misake and dealing with it by removing my content and apologising to me for it.

I accept that apology as sincere and will be happy to let the issue go.

So moving on...

I guess most of you will have by now heard all about the report titled "The death of Internet marketing" by M Filsaime.

There has been alot of opinions posted to the forums regarding this.
Some negative some positive, nevertheless it did get people talking which was probably the aim of the report itself.

One thing is clear they are talking about HIS view, his business.

Opinions are just that, opinions... we all have them.

My opinion on it is that this was a blatent rip off of the earlier report called "The death of adsense" right down to the way it was distributed.

Let's all get one thing clear...

Internet marketing is NOT dying...it never will.

The title is a grabber I admit that much but it is also very misleading.

One thing very clear...YOU the little guy, the non "guru" he cares very little about, you are just a number, someone to make money from.

Yet he says in that report there is NOTHING for sale, no ulterior motive.
Is it assuming we are that naive?
Why do it if thats so?

One thing he says in the report is he has a "select few" that he will work with, so if you are NOT in that select few you have a hope in hell chance of ever getting him to promote your product.

Well he will miss out if that is the case...it wasn't long ago he was a nobody trying to get somewhere much like the rest of us.
So now he IS at the top he says he now has to say NO to people.

hhhm.. wonder how far he would have got if those who got him where he is had said NO...it stinks if you ask me.

The problem and he admits it, he IS a part of it, a spoke in that wheel.

Well it is certainly clear he has joined the "money mad circle" of the top
guys.
I mean look at his emails...no decent content, just a "buy this" attitude which many of them have, see why I have unsubbed from so many list lately...can you blame me?
Every email is a blatent promotion of this or that.

He blames it on the fact so many launches have been made lately at the same time, and all cross promoting each other.
He says people get fed up with that and they either unsubscribe or ignore them.

Whos fault is that?
Ours?
Theirs?

I didn't hear him complaining when the money rolled into his account that came from alot those who were on these "guru's" list.

The truth is they are in the same bed together and now they made that bed they will just have to lay in it!

This issue wont get better for them...only worse, people now trust them less, listen to them less, hence all the unsubscribing.

They have made this Internet Marketing look worse.

Never mind...it doesn't mean YOU can't succeed, why should it.

He don't care about you...he only cares about himself and his little circle!
That much he admits in the report...maybe not directly, but you are smart enough to read that for yourself.

He says he will now only promote products in his little circle of friends.

Well...that to me seems daft, there are going to be some great products created by people we have yet to hear of...so he and his little circle would miss out.
I mean...how many of those around now had you heard of a year or two ago?

His biggest mistake is to ruin any trust people had for what he says.
I don't say he his a bad guy, he isn't, but he IS making his own problems.

Lack of real communication is the problem.
The "ezines" he and the "circle" write are nothing like what we signed up for in the first place.

How often do your favourite magazines (real offline ones) change the way they are done?
Never...if they did would you still buy them?

Mike even had the gall to have a rant at those who put the term guru in "" just as I do... "gurus"

Here he says those who do this are doing so in a derogatory way!?

"...someone that begrudges someone else for having what they,
too, also want. Blaming others for their lack of success, making
it appear that they are being exploited. All the while they would
love to have the same success. perhaps dropping the hypocritical
ego would help remove the 'them against us' conflict..."

Woah...well Mike the term "guru" to me, is a self labelled one.
I don't think YOU are a guru...not by a long shot.

You maybe a big name in Internet Marketing...but that is it...nothing more and internet marketing or IM as we know it is not THAT big a circle!

I don't use the term "guru" in any other part of life, I know no gurus...not the real ones.
There are NO gurus in this market.

While the report does have some self serving part for him, it also has some good points that may make your work better or more successful.

But that is just it, you and ONLY you can only decide what is good for you and your work.
Mike has no idea about you or your business so you need to take what he is saying as being about HIM and his business.

You may well learn something from it that CAN help you and your work.
Only you can say that though, not him.

If the likes of Mike and his circle spent time providing value to his list, this report would never have been done...it wouldn't need to have been done.

It sounds as though he knows he has blew it with the list he has.
So he sets about growing a new one, well...I won't be on them.
I am on this one so I could get this report and so I can see exactly what changes he does implement, see what he does rather than what he says he will do.

That WILL be interesting, and you should be watching what they do, not what they say...often they are two different things.

This post is just MY view on it, if you have not read it and would like to do so...you can grab it here, (link no longer good, removed)

Bare in mind what he says is not what goes...he doesn't run this show you know, if anything I felt that report was centred around those that use the "warriors" forum.

If so...then yes, it is in a sense true, they are all in the same forum so it is bound to be that way, there is alot of scrtach my back and...you know.

I would love to hear your comments on this report.

Update on copycat blog

Yay...the IDIOT has removed it, he emailed saying that he only wanted the template!!

WELL...there are ways of getting templates, doing it the way he did is NOT one.

You do NOT copy the source code, thats why MY content was on his blog, if you want that template...google for it! (update~the current template is not the same one)

OR

ASK...and I will tell you the site I got it from, or send you it, mind you if you have half a brain you will be able to find it very easy.

There is NO excuse for what that IDIOT done...at all.

It was MY content, not the template I was bothered about.
I couldn't care less what template people use.

But at least do it right.

This person has little writing skills judging by the email I got from him.

I am happy to help ANYONE if they ask properly, even if it seems a daft question to those who ask...I will not belittle them for asking, I will just help them by answering the question.

People who know me know that.

This idiot said I copied the template from someone else.
YES of course I did, I got it from a website where templates are there to use.

Nothing wrong with that at all, that is what they are done for.

So if you like this template just ask...and I will give you the link whereI got it from...all it takes ~ is asking!

As for this whole situatiobn, it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but I will NOT let it lie.. otherwise they will go and do it again.

He got caught through his own stupidity.
Had he had even half a brain cell I would not have known!

Sad that people like that are out there.

Sad that they are so stupid I can't tell them how stupid they are!

So ALEX... learnt a lesson now have we?

Stats say so much...

Oi... copycat...

I see you have yet to add the most important post to your copied-blog.

The one where YOU are exposed!

I see from my stats.. (don't ya love stats) that you have checked your copied-blog at least twice in the last two days, I KNOW this from my stats due to you being so dense and thick and using MY stat code.

Yes your activity shows up.. so I have MORE proof!!

You are some dumbass aren't ya!

Well.. I have contacted your domain registrar, yes I KNOW who you used, as well as blogger, and adsense..so hopefully you will lose far more than you ever stood to gain.

I KNOW you read this too... stats! stats glorious stats!

Well dumbass... how you feel to be caught out?
How do you feel that everyone KNOWS you are stupid?

WHEN I get your name..I will post it here for all to know.

So... best thing you can do is to DELETE that blog before it gets deleted.

I KNOW which county you are in... and this is good because I CAN take legal action.. if it gets that far..

You are a chicken shit!
Hiding behind a screen thinking you are anonymous!! Daft swine!

YOU are NOT! I will get your name, address, eveything I need!

Blogger? Who's side are THEY on?

There is no doubt at ALL about that copycat taking MY content and using it on THAT blog so why do I have to WRITE to blogger to sort this out?

I mean its saturday.. the post is monday, then a few days for it to get to blogger..then they act on it.. so a week?

THAT is terrible!

So I will do that, I will also demand to know WHO it is.. so I can take action regarding this.

I wouldn't be bothered if it was using my RSS as PART of the blog...but this is copyright infringment, and it is a case of them copying my whole source code into their blog!

Hardly RSS is it?

Even taking MY adsense and stat code with it!

I have a feeling about WHO it may be.. but will NOT be doing anything regarding that untill blogger do something about it. IE.. DELETING that blog, deleting his gmail account used with it.

Rest assured I will NOT let it go untill I see action.

Blogger should ACT immediately really, an email IS good enough and faster!
There is NO doubt about what has been done.

Backtrack on firefox

I love using firefox...but the last few days have been a nightmare.

I would rather use firefox over IE any day.. yet..IE have NEVER lost bookmarks... NOT once...but firefox IS better to use.
I posted about it recently..but I am not going to lie to my readers..

It was corrupted somehow, I was using ff 2.0.. crashed, lost all bookmarks though I DID have a back up I did last week.. I do one a week..that will change to one a day if I add any bookmarks any day.
I still lost alot of bookmarks I had added over the last week.

So.. a whole night, and two days of trying to get it sorted..I got so
fed up with it I uninstalled it and went back to an earlier version.

Boy am I glad I did.. now I have no problems, no stress inducing hassle.

I will NOT get 2.0 again untill they iron out these problems.
The support forums were a great help.. thanks to them, but there is also something they say that I do NOT agree with.

Several of them repeatedly say to forum users that we who have had problems are a small margin of the total users of ff 2.0.. maybe, but that doesn't help the fact we did have the problems.. and it would seem MOST of the post on the forum are in relation to the ff 2.0...and similar problems.

I think it would have been better to have waitied before releasing it, iron out any problems first.. at least these common ones.

So.. do I still recommend firefox?
YES.. I AM using it right now.. but the earlier version.. 1.5.0.8 and I AM happy with it.

Take back ups of bookmarks regularly...and you could save ALOT of hassle.

If you have firefox.. it is easy to do... just click bookmarks at the top of your browser.. bookmarks, manage; file, export; save as webpage to pc.

Simple... yes could avoid the hassle I have had.

If you don't use firefox... I DO recommened it.. but if you go to download it you get version 2.0... its good, but I DO NOT recommend it myself.

It is up to you what you use.. I like this more stable earlier version.

Questioning whether it's really worth it

Just thinking aloud here so if it makes no sense.. well ignore it.
I don't know where I am going with this post but I just feel I need to write it see what comes out.

Several things have me questioning things recently and they are something I have to think about in order to make sense of it, to do something about it.

If I don't I will just keep on keeping on the way it is going, and I am not sure I want that.

Without boring you with details of this and that, lets just say things are seeming to come to a head with me at the moment and this is not me having a "pity me rant"..far from it..more of a self questioning thing, yet I am going to write it because maybe it will help me..I don't know.

I had issues with my pc..and that was frustrating to say the least, wasted alot of time today..but hopefully I have that under control now and time will tell.

I think it just fouled my mood a tad..so a bath soon got some stress out, but the bath is also somewhere where I "think", always has been, maybe its the relaxing state of brainwave..
alpha, beta, zombie, whatever one it is..well anyway it got me thinking about tings.

I admit I was a bit..I don't know.. not quite emotional, just frustrated, and a little lost..as in why?

One key point was how lonely I feel at times, alot of the time.. normally I don't let this sort of thinking bother me, the last week I have been a bit ill, so not been out much or anything, being online is one thing I have managed to do.
But I do spend alot of time alone seeing as I live alone.

As alot of you know and the rest of you will now..

I am deaf so this whole net thing just amazes me in a very real sense..but there lies something I should have thought about before, and its made think about it now and that is this is more an amazement at the communication aspect of it, thats why you see me on forums and such, intereacting.

I LIKE forums, they are a trove of valuable info and tips if you look properly and join, ask the questions, give as well as take, help others, advise people.. etc.

But forums are good and bad, can be great for meeting people, I have met some great, fantastic people, yet it is also a time eater..well anyway it isn't for everyone but I DO use the forums a bit.

Most of you can call each other and such, well messaging and forums, blogs and blog comments is my sort of communication, my phone if you like, there are others who have conferences, brainstorming calls..something I can never do, so what I write is what people read of me, thats the ONLY way I can be characterised.

As you know with writing it is hard to put the right emotion, tone, whatever into the words, hence smileys, it gives you that clue to the context the word is written in.
The mood of the writer when writing that word..

So it is no wonder some people take things wrong, just as I may do with their words etc.

An awkward thing at the best of times..you should be prepared to stand behind what you write though.

Don't get me wrong their ARE some great forums out there, some great people, you KNOW who you are, but there is the other side too.. LACK of real welcoming vibe and such, cliques and the like without naming any forums or people...YOU know who you are too.

Where I feel most welcome is where I feel LESS constrained..as with anyone, we don't want rules and bouncers if you like in EVERY room we go into, making the place feel as though its got eggshells on the floor!

I do not go out to insult people or upset people etc, I VALUE the communication aspect far to much.. yet I WILL get involved in heated threads if somene I call a friend gets insulted etc...so I should.. what sort of friend would I be if I didn't?

It also means I get LESS done than I should, yet I do get alot of vistors to this blog from forums, nice to know people will read my stuff..

I am glad of that, so the forums have that added benefit but the visitors wouldn't be here on this blog if they didn't think I had anything of interest to say..and if I didn't post on forums..they wouldn't see my link..a circle there?

Yet I DONT go to forums to get traffic, I go there to see people I like, and to learn something as well as contribute, to communicate.

I know most of those that read this DO like me as a person and that IS great.

I try to be as much like I am online as I am offline.
I am a blogger and a forum user...simply put.. next is more sites etc, but do I curtail the forums in order to free up more time to build sites?

Do I want to feel even MORE lonely than I do anyway?
Do I want to lose touch with people, even if only partly?

A BIG part of me doesn't..
That causes another issue.

I don't earn anything from it.. I don't get food on the table from it.
I don't use time well enough to do what I should, so.. it has to be less posting on forums, and in some ways I guess it should a be a good thing for my income.

Earning money is NOT my main priority online I now realise but it has to happen in order for me to STAY online and live reasonably.

If I did earn from this blog then I guess I wouldn't be writing this part.
So I guess I have to stop posting as much to the forums and do more of what is NEEDED to earn something.

I know that on a few forums when I AM there they liven up.. and get busy and from the comments I have had, they are glad I AM there, but it will have to be less posting from now.

But isn't it strange.........

If I wasn't my usual nice self and used controversy I would probably be earning from this blog....
It seems you need to be a jerk and tell people to f**k off and such to get such traffic and results.

An odd world indeed...
Seems to make me question whether it REALLY is worth it?

Is it?

Google+firefox VS Msn+IE+yahoo

Google are a smart bunch as you probably gather.. ;o)

Something google have never had themselves was a browser so when firefox started and the way they launched, becoming popular very quickly was bound to have pricked the ears of those in google.

Firefox had the perfect "cause" for the launch, utilising the very fact people disliked IExplorer, which was the main browser in use yet also the main target for hackers to cause problems etc.

So becoming a very frustrating thing for everyone it was easy for firefox to let the users spread the word using THAT very cause...which worked perfectly creating a perfect free viral campaign.

Indeed I was one of those that helped spread the word, I still use firefox as my main browser and will continue to do so...its the best.

I mean why would I want to use second best? ;o)

Interesting to read that yahoo and msn and banding together in direct competition to google and firefox through the IExplorer.

They will still be second best though... for a number of reasons.
The reasons go back a long way too, as do the mistakes made that leads them to where they are now.

Lets take a look at a few things about the situation, I know hindsight is wonderful, but it also helps the future if lessons are learned from it...and there ARE lessons we can use.

Msn are last...simply due their own lack of standard...there is no way they will ever catch google on their own and this has to be the main reason they link up with yahoo.

Take a step back though and you can see another reason why google have gone so far ahead, the name itself is a big part of it.

As you now know people are even using it as a verb for searching online..as in "google my name". Try it.. ;o)

See where the power of that is, although google don't like people using it as a verb it IS making them a success, like aspirin, bikini.

Yahoo or msn don't have THAT kind of benefit at all...they never will.

I recently had the IE7 installed on my PC, but there was something not right about it, it caused my pc to crash several times, so I the uninstalled it and went back to having the IE6 which was on my PC anyway....not a good start for IE7.

Yet Microsoft say they have had alot of downloads in the first 3 days of launch..heres something else I noticed...why do they need to say that?
Firefox didn't need to say how many were being downloaded...they just got on with it, keeping on top of things all the while.

The knew the most important thing was to keep the users happy.
Just as google know to keep people happy...something Msn don't do.

So... where are yahoo and msn merging?
In IE7 the default search is yahoo... the homepage is yahoo.
The toolbar is yahoo.

So why would Yahoo join with Msn?
Optimised advertising is one big reason, with the revenue they will generate from their own version of googles adsense.

Firefox is still used by more people than IExplorer so they will have to do serious catching up, and what better way than to emulate firefox themselves?
With the now popular "tabbed browsing" feature added to IE it shows firefox really DOES lead the way.

One thing that also benefits firefox over IE is the add ons, extensions etc, these are more often than not created by users rather than firefox themselves.
Therefore users are creating the perfect browser for themselves.

IE will never create the perfect browser for users, only play catch up.

What do you think about it?



P.s Update to add...google chrome is now my main browser! ;o)

Can YOU crack the secret code?

It is not often I say...wow, that WAS a good piece of copy.

It is not often I say..there aren't any "mistakes" or "turn off hype" in copy that we see but this IS a great example of how to create a NON boring and NON overly ridiculous page.

YET...

There is NOTHING for sale on this site, NO email grab, just solid neat copy that shares some nuggets right there as well as the secrets the letter is about.

Read between the lines and you see exactly what I mean.

Taking a twist on two already popular ideas and add your slant...you have a winner!

Take a look at this and see what secrets you already know, and see if you can learn a few more while you are there.

I was pleasntly suprised at this, well crafted, well put together, it flows nicely...and it shares.

Yet the ONE truth of it all is your success is down to YOU!

Whats your opinion?

Clickbank blacklist Cody Moya's hoplink......

AND suspends his account...That IS Great... ;o)

Why you may ask?

I got an email from him, as I WAS on his list, in this email...

The unethical man tried to undermine other "ethical" affiliates who have worked hard at generating sales, even undermining the product owner himself.

Absolutely terrible... here is a part of THAT email sent to me..



“If you already bought “Dominating CB” go ahead to clickbank and refund.
After that buy through my link because what you have is not full without
what you are getting from me.

If you get “Dominating CB” through my link I will give you follow very
important software and video:”


Now is THAT nice or not?

Here is what clickbank had to say after it was reported...


================================================
We have blacklisted this affiliate's hoplink as well have
suspended their account. It does take a few hours sometimes
for the hoplink to be disabled after this has been done.
They will also be notified that this type of activity is not
tolerated by Clickbank.
================================================


What a NICE bloke...NOT.
If you ARE on this mans list..

I would recommend you unsubscribe asap!

Bloggers and ethics

Is there some "blog law" out there?
Can anyone point me to the blog police?
Who decides what goes and what doesn't here then?

It seems its ok for some to have a bash, using lies.. and what a SHIT situation that is, yet it wasn't some small time blogger that used twisted LIES.

Taking things right out of context to manipulate their own readers all the proving themselves to be the biggest hypocrites out there!

Having not mentioned anything about the debate being blogged about recently I now feel I SHOULD say something, due to an unethical reporter of some "big time magazine" taking advantage of a friend, an HONEST blogger who gave an honest interview for that unethical journo..

Lets get something out of the way here first..

The debate in question is regarding PPP..thats "pay per post" where blog writers can get paid for writing a post, if any of you my readers, don't know that, some of you will and maybe have your own opinion on that too.

Anyway without getting to far into that some bloggers and others feel people are "selling out" by using the service...

WOAH.. hang on back up...

Who the hell do THEY think they are telling people how to run thier blogs, and critising users for making a little side money, or using it as PART of the living income?

THAT stinks... get OFF the high horses..get REAL..


And yet this hypocrite of a journo has ADS all over the page where she BASHES my friend by twisting HER words to make her sound worse than THEM.. sheeeesh.. what a f**king CHEEK!

Scuse me tongue... but that IS a cheek!

If anyone wants to at least benefit from monetising a blog..they good on them, I hope that succeed to the level they desire...and why shouldn't they.

Is THAT journo or anyone else gonna pay towards my friend bringing her kids up, alone may I add?
Thought not.. so don't preach on how they should go about earning a legitimate living, AND twist things up so as to make YOU look better!

My friend even had an INKLING this was going to happen...

So.. as you already know I DON'T use PPP's service, but thats NOT to say I won't...I WILL.. when I am ready to do so, and see something of value to YOU the reader, something that FITS the blog or topic.

But.. hey.. lets take a look at this situation for a minute...

My friend who got "diliberately, grossly misquoted" Lynn Terry has been doing this work for years, she knows her stuff and she delivers... you get to read great FREELY given tips like this linking one here... was THAT worth a read? Yeah I thought so too.

But it doesn't stop there.. you see, taking a good look over the blog itself in ORDER it was written you see that Lynn hasn't changed anything about the way she does things.. She has ALWAYS said you shouldn't put ALL your eggs in one basket..

Lynn has never hidden anything at all, it has always been the way of.. "this is what I do and I share the results with you"... take a look yourself at the VERY results of her PPP campaign..

Not a fortune..but it pays for a fair few dinners in the house.. do these bashers begrudge her THAT?

You know its not ALL about hey.. "I need to make money from you the reader" us readers are in fact helping them to live as they should do.. eating and drinking etc and Lynn even goes to say she removes some earning part of the blog..but for good reason... IS that a tip the readers could benefit from?

Lynn did get feedback from her readers about using PPP and that shows her honesty.
For me..honesty goes a LOOOOOOONG way.. and thats why I am writing this now..
It honestly does bother me that this can happen...

Yet take a look at that "journos" site page..and the comments are locked..you have to JOIN to comment... talk about hiding behind closed doors..why would I want to join them to get future emails?

I wanted to comment.. but hey THIS is better..
This shows the power of the blogger...and I am not the only one.. A friends blog.

People like that journo WON'T be able to get away with tactics like THAT without getting called out on it!

I am honest.. I posted an aff link in the last post... but I did say about it.. but that leads to another point.. Lynn has mentioned some feel we should have a disclosure on our blogs....

SOD THAT.... I aint insulting my readers like that they ain't stupid... are you.. ;o)

You already know I am not making these silly amounts people profess to make from blogs etc..

If I want to share something with you and have an affiliate link..I will.. you already know I may get something from that, but then so what, if I didn't the owner does.. so wheres the difference to the buyer?

That choice is purely down to the readers and not those who are preaching and bashing others for daring to "earn".. hey this blogging lark does cost money and is time consuming.. thats what THEY need to realise.

Not you readers.. you readers are here to read this and maybe benefit from it in some way, whatever way that is.. even if just to laugh AT me.. ;o)

I KNOW you are smart enough to make your own mind up..

As for Lynn, she has shared some great stuff with us readers and even results from things that could help others make money or save time and minimise mistakes..

She has shared her results with several different advertisers and such with us so we can benefit from them, like this one and this one and this one.

So.. you tell me.. who wins from all this?

In my eyes Lynn has the most to gain, she will get traffic, even from the "rag" the "used" her, but they will see her blog post too.. ;o)

So.. Lynn has been honest and upfront here, as she has from the off... think the journo has?

Hope she gest the sack!

The bashers of PPP have also made me laugh... great job guys, you have made certain the PPP IS here to stay, all that free publicity.. all because of your "jealous pettiness".

Irony IS great at times you know.. ;o)

So... I can't wait to try out PPP for myself, but here is the rub, I would NOT give an UNhonest view.
Simple as that, my own honesty is not going to allow me to do that.
