Korean madness

Have you seen this crazy video??



That had me cracked up, the girl on the left has a strange way of moving her face... good fun I bet for them, a great example of being unique.

Doubt they realised how popular that would be!!
I have to say that its one of the funniest I have seen so far!
No wonder its viral.

Set me free....

The last few weeks have been in some ways a revelation to me for a number of reasons, things unexpected and a few "a-ha" moments that have made me think.....think hard.

George Orwell: 'In an age of deceit, speaking the truth is a revolutionary act'.


I am all for the truth and honesty, so in all honesty I feel I have let myself down quite badly through my own fear, fear I should have bannished aloooong time ago.
That fear and the wish to beat it made me wite this.

Fear that has been there 20 years and stems from something I never thought about...till recently.
The root of the fear was something different to what I thought it was all this time.
It has also influenced my brothers, not my fear but the root cause.

That stupid fear shaped me, shaped me in the wrong way, I DO NOT want that fear having any influence on my sons.

I now have the big challenge to face and BEAT that fear with your help!
A chance to really change my life for the better, a chance to change me.
A chance to help me be more who I want to be.

You do know me pretty well in some areas as any offline friends would admit to..
I don't lie online just as I don't offline.. the truth always outs in the end in both..so why lie?

You know I am not one of those who sells "How to get rich selling how to get rich" people who are in abundance online..how could I when I do NOT have that experience?

Far to many people buy that stuff...which is actually realising what the book is about...i.e they preach how to get rich, you buy it, make them rich, selling you what they did to you..

I have made money online, and I did make some small (but residual) amount recently.. but...(more on that in a sec)

It's a funny thing when you think about online and offline..they are very closely woven yet online we "write ourselves into existence", for without me writing this you wouldn't know me.
I want to continue writing myself into existence..

It is true that we can be whoever we want to be online in some sense, yet there are limits or boundries from offline that influence you online.
Your ethics or morals maybe, the way you "talk" maybe, sense of right and wrong.....whatever.

My fears have lasped into my online work..its stopping me..I am stuck, trapped.

This fear has cost me thousands and thousands..I KNOW it and knew it at the time yet didn't really care enough, for the fear distracted me enough to make that so.

NOW I kick myself for it.....pretty hard!
Only because NOW I know the real fear and I know I can beat it.
I need help though.

That fear...

The cause I thought it was is something I am, in a sense, glad happened because it has bettered me...

Before I go further I want to say this may shock or suprise some people, those who know me online more so.. sorry if that is the case but this IS something I have to face and I know that is respected too by those same people.. they know me well enough for that.

It's no secret that my dad hit me a fair few times while I was in my teens..I mean punched, kicked.. and yes its sad, but didnt hurt so much body wise as it did mental wise.

I only ever retaliated forcefully back ONCE.. and that made him get an injunction out on me... thats cowardly bully action to be honest, but without getting into that...
It was the last time it ever happened.. and that was along time ago now...I was 18 then...but never liked bullies since!

But I would say 70% of those times he hit me it was over... MONEY.
Stupid little amounts even, my dinner money for school..etc.

What really hurts me now..is looking at my own sons...at the age I was when it started happening to me... that is sad.. it has made me a better dad.
I would never hit my sons..never, not for any reason, especially over bloody money.

But I digress... it is no suprise that all me and my brothers do not have a very positive attitude to money, none of us own a home, we would rather spend what we have on our own kids. We are all over 30 now...but it is changing for us all..slowly but surely.

It could have been so different, our dad being self employed, ..successful too, yet that made him the way he was with money.
It is no wonder I like IM and coming up with ideas, after growing up watching dad in his various trades...alot of similar things go on.

I thought my fear was money makes you like that...

Hence me having a fear if I have money it will make me a worse dad.

I now know it was my reaction to his reaction to money that gave me that fear.

He had the "love of money" that influenced him in a negative way...I DON'T, but I feared I did.
I wrongly attached that badness to the money...for to long.
Now if I do have money I feel uncomfortable.. my glass ceiling is low...very low.
I have never had much in any one time.

Realising this was a huge breakthrough for me mentally.
It set up the path to me breaking this fear and becoming who I do want to be.

Recent lesson...

Many of you will have read my recent report based around the warriors, over 400 downloads to date.
It gave a very good do-able idea for anyone, it was a good preseller.

It also got me a small but residual income!

Now I gave that away...partly due to the fear I would make money, that stopped me selling it which I had thought about and partly due to wanting as wide a range of opinion..meaning I wanted as many people as pposible to get it..I would soon find out if it had value.

I had a fear it was not of value..

Yet had not ONE complaint!
I had lots of compliments... :o)

It started an income stream...slowly yet surely.
The problem now is I don't get any of that income until end of Feb at earliest.
That is the only one downside to not building a list while I did it...I could have created something especially for that list.

Stupid fear really... but lesson learnt.
That was my first positive step.. a big step for me too.

I am not the sort of person who would have just asked for anything from that list either...I want to deserve what I do get.

But I do have a problem at the present time, but also want these problems to be the catalyst to me changing, to me beating that fear...for good!


Bannishing the fear...

There is only one way for me to beat that fear and that is to shatter my glass ceiling and grow as well as growth allows, as well as I deserve to grow.

That is what I plan to work on...generating my ceiling amount as fast as possible and deal with it...grow farther and enjoy the beating of it, while reinforcing the why I did it.

I know I need to give value..that's never a problem with the crap that is bandied about these days!

I already have great plans, plans that could make me well off yet my fear stops me, it also stops me growing as a person.

I have no real desire to build a list and sell to the IM niche...so maybe if I can help you do that in some small way then I can follow my plans.
I really want to grow, online and offline, for they are linked, I know I CAN make money if I set myself free, but I want that feeling of free more.

I mainly want to get a camera, and that is something you will see make a massive change to the stuff I do online...pics everyday on these blogs!
Being deaf my eyes are better, I have often been told I take good pictures so they may well be linked.
But I also want to get one asap so I can take more pictures of my dog before she passes away.

Can you help?

So..to help me what can you do? Am I going to ask for a handout?

No... I want to give value, good value, value that you can use.

I already know I have something of value and I want to help you benefit from that value while you are helping me bannish my "had for far to long" fear...

If I am to be happy I have to beat this fear.

My report that people have already has links in, that if one person utilised all of them I would get just over 200 dollars, and some of that is residual.

I am glad there are 400 out there for it could have a trickle of income over time, that shows free works...free spreads.

BUT...those people are NOT going to spread my report with my links in.....

Now I reworded it slightly to make a new report that presells the warriors mastermind, as well as others.. like a membership script etc...NO "death of" in there... ;o)

It is still a good solid ten page report with potential and a great idea.

But how about one better...

Would it be worth selling the word doc, as is as PLR to people to brand it as is with own links etc, or even they can use the info in a different way, ie...add own content to it to fill up the report to a book preselling the same kind of things but those links of your choice?

Simply put..you could do as you please with it.. build a list giving it away, sell it with a good backend...whatever!

I am in urgent need to do something to start me on that path to successfully oliberating that fear...I need to smash this ceiling asap and time IS of the essence here...

Would you buy it? Would you prefer it was limited?

What would you pay for that?

Quiet on the blogging front

I have been a bit quiet of late as some have noticed and emailed me, sorry about that everyone I thank you for your concern and the fact you contacted me.

There are some issues that I need to deal with and that is what I am doing at the moment.

Difficult times really and somthing I have had to deal with is my own fear, fear that stems from my teens and something I have to deal with in order to progress in life and in myself.
Without going into detail it is something which effects me in several ways and its is something I have to banish.

I also have a big moment of change around the corner with my beloved dog coming to the tipping point into the last stage of her life..it could be a few weeks yet but something I have to deal with is the change it also puts into the limitations of my lfe.

In some ways it will expand my circle of activities.

It has been a few days of serious thinking and it will have a profound effect on things for me from here onwards.

Having a money problem at the present time means I could lose my connection at any moment, and should that happen it will be quiet on here, if that happens you will know whats going on.

Interesting Adsense rule

Looking around the regular blogs I visit I noticed an interesting adense rule posted by Neil Shearing.

A permanent ban on your site but NOT your account?

Seems a good move and levels the playing field up some while lessening their own work load, so giving the lesser of us, traffic wise, a better chance to test and track while pushing the boundries a little further on each test without the fear of shooting yourself in the foot.

But again the ban would be permanent..so once you push it too far AND get noticed. its too late.

As Neil says once the traffic starts to creep up, tidy up your tactics and stay INSIDE the rules.

Not that I am saying use blackhat style methods.. just test a little more than you would on what you ALREADY test on, add new twist to learn new things.

Health PLR...limited

My recent report "Death of warriors" was taken well and there were over 350 downloads so I am pleased about that..more so with no one saying a bad word about the actual report.

Something I noticed today was I have had success with refferals on the links which is encouraging for the power of free reports.

I have been asked "did I miss a trick not building my list too"?

Maybe, maybe not.. I knew I would get less downloads had I asked for an email.
The idea of a free report is to get as many downloaded as possible and please them with it.
I hope in that respect I did ok. :o)

Other reasons I didn't want to ask for an email are to have a bigger stat count to take notes and learn from, and learn alot I did.
Also to give back to the people who have given to me.

Great reasons if you ask me.. ;o)

I did spot something I wish to point out and hopefully you will be glad I did.

I know that the health PLR membership was taken well and people have joined up..they won't regret that.
There is the rub though..and that is it is a very limited offer, as soon as there are 500 members its shut up shop...for good!

Yes..leave it too long and you wont be able to benefit from this crazy overdelivering membership...grab it NOW while you can..there are NOT many spots left.

Click the box below to get your spot!

Click here to visit Niche-Health-Products.com

I know it is well worth the price and I know the content will help you massively if you are also a member of the mastermind group.
As the content from the mastermind membership will be a great complimentary addition to the health plr content.



So..if you are serious about making this work well you need to jump on the offer while it is there..wait and it will be gone..forever!

Interesting numbers and it means one thing...

I know my next move in regards to it.. ;o)

Its been a good lesson or two for me that's for sure.

The numbers are interesting and will make the next few moves for me much less a worry, it is always a worry things won't get taken to well, yet you can't know till you try.

So for that reason I AM glad I did offer it but also because giving is the way we should be.
Swings, roundabouts and all that jazz.

I was on the fence for a few reasons but decided I didn't like it up there so had to make the choice.

Blogger swap done!

Great, now I have the newer blogger dashboard which to be honest is far tidier and easier to use as well as being faster , which will help hugely with my make money online efforts with niche blogging.

It will also allow me to enjoy this blog more. :o)

I can now add tags etc which makes it better for you the reader when searching for topics etc, just clicking a "label" below each post will show you a page with ALL post with that chosen label.

I have noticed a very big spike of traffic from people searching terms on technorati and other social bookmarking sites.
This has me convinced that people will use tags and bookmarking sites if they know how to do it.

The strangest thing is I have been found by looking for ONE keyword, often I only write that keyword once!
Shows how important it is to keep an eye on your stats AND keywords!. ;o)

Now I wish blogger would at least put some decent smileys on the wysiwyg editor. :o)
Whatever happens, if you niche blog this will help you speed things if part of your make money online efforts.

Keith Baxter = Scott Boulch?

Interesting to read on another SW British Internet marketers blog... Neil Shearing, who has posted a theory that these two fellas maybe one and the same!
If Neil is right it certainly is a good bit of  internet marketing.

Scott has just released his "autospy" report which is an interesting read, it tells of exactly what he did with his "death of adsense" report, and how he went from 0 to over 39,000 on his list in just a few weeks.

It certainly has got me thinking.

The way his list building is set up is a great idea in that it has an automatic way of getting those sign ups double opted in... think about that. ;o)

It is a great way to increase your opt ins, simply due to cutting out the likelyhood people don't opt in on the confirmation email.
You can read about it further by grabbing the autospy report for yourself and take notes.. ;o)

It was a great way of building a big list fast!

So... are Keith and Scott one and the same?

If there is ONE thing we all must continue to do no matter what our goals in life it's keep on improving ourselves, for if we don't we are already the best we will ever be.

Self improvement is a massive niche and I am sure there are thousands of things that could help you.

Payperpost post approved now...

Great to get it sorted out at last and have all my post approved towards my efforts to make money online.
This has made me alot happier about continuing with the paid blogging service on the other blog.

They DO need to add to the FAQ though just to ensure it is obvious on the site you must have a prominent disclosure link...though I feel its crazy, just the FTC sticking their noses into everyone's business, even though who have no right sticking into, like mine, and it means blogs who use the service look worse for it.

Think of all the other advertising mediums out there and how few of them really disclose things...like radio.
Like all good things the USA government attempts to police things when there is no need to do so.
I don't even bloody live there!

Ah well at least I got the payperpost situation sorted out.
Would I recommend them to you?
Yes I would... why not.

If you are thinking of trying it, or are already trying it, I would love to hear how it has worked out for you.
If you would like to try it but have yet to check it out go ahead and see how it pans out for you with regards to your effort to make money online with them..

Cowards and bullies on forums

I HATE bullies!!
It's unbelievable how rude and cowardly these bullies can be... they are among the BIGGEST hypocrites I have ever met.

Thinking it's ok to bully people yet as soon as someone stands up to their bullying on the forums... they get banned?
Hows THAT for PURE cowardly actions?
Just like REAL bullies offline... don't like not getting away with their bullying.

Cowards and hypocrites...the owner has even had ex members start a site up glorifying their hatred of that owner... says it all.

Astonishing... simpleminded cowardly idiots!
The situation reflects far more on those bullies than anyone else.

Cowards and bullies are really SAD.

Payperpost update

No sooner than I posted the post below regarding my make money online activity with Payperpost I get an email from Payperpost support regarding the post rejections.

I am astonished...they admit this disclosure situation was on the press release which I never saw, yet also admit they have NOT added this to the FAQ on the site itself which I DID check out... so um... how the hell was I supposed to know?
Beats me!!

I had the disclosure link at the foot of the other blog, just as I have seen on OTHER blogs using payperpost, now I have added to it to EVERY post, regardless of whether they are sponsored or not.
They can't reject me for that reason now.

I asked for them to take another look and hopefully they will approve the post and I will STILL get payment...not delayed either.

It is a mistake on THEIR part as they admit they need to and will add the disclosure issue to the FAQ on the site.

Unbelievable how they can forget to add it really, they could NOT expect everyone to have seen their press release.

Hope to post here saying it HAS been resolved and the post approved then I carry on with the make money online plans with paid blogging.

Whatever happens...at least I will know which side of the fence I will get off. ;o)

Payperpost

As I mentioned in an earlier post I am seeing how I can make money online trying out the payperpost service on my viral blog having posted 4 post so far I am on the fence at the moment.

Two were rejected...and I am not happy about it as they said I should have had my disclosure policy in the post...or prominantly shown, yet there was NOTHING saying that in the post opportunity page regarding those opportunities posted about.

They took 5 odd days to take a look, I know it was holidays but that is NOT an excuse, it's a business they run so they should do it the best can and to me that means staying on the ball, for they only build up a backlog of blog post to catch up on, they had 5 days FREE advertising from me.

Not a good start to be honest.
I am happy to have the chance to try it out but I feel they should be approving or rejecting as quickly as possible.

The plus point on that is once it IS approved you get your payment 30 days from the posting date, not the approval date.
YET if they are rejected that means the advertisers get FREE ads for up to a week.

HOW is that fair?

It's NOT.

I planned to try it on this blog if it went well but in two minds whether I should or am not.
After you add a blog you must do ten post before you can add another...so IF I do want to do it here I will have to make at least 6 more post on the viral blog to be able to do so.

It all depeneds on the next 6 post I do..IF I do them that is.
I am awaiting to hear back from payperpost regarding the rejections, see how its sorted out.. then I will decide on what to do.

Till then... well I will keep an eye on the situation and see how things develop.
You can be sure I will be honest about them, I will tell you my readers of the crap as well the good, we can't make money online with crap, well we shouldn't want to! ;o)

Interesting yet suprising...and ironic!

On 30th of december I posted about saddam hussain to hang over on another blog of mine.

Reading the post it's obviously something I posted at a time when the keywords would be searched for... yet the only mention of him on that blog was in the title, also I posted about the impact virally... in a sense I complained. ;o)

What happens..four days later?
Looking at MY stats...I find a few like this.

My post came out top of 132000 searches in yahoo.. wow... well talk about ironic.. ;o)

And I mentioned the keyword phrase ONCE..in the TITLE.

I was pleased to see that..yet suprised and felt it somewhat ironic...seeing as I complained that there would be searches for it.

I learnt alot from that. An SEO lesson for everyone there.
