Mike Blacktopp

Mike as many of you know is suffering from MND and doesn't have long left sadly.

But hey, this is one brave guy and he jumped out of a plane to raise awareness of MND which is also raising money towards further studies of the muscle wasting disease.

The whole "jump" was filmed and has been posted to digg.

Please go check this out and digg it.

Take a look at the jump here.

Busy busy busy

Well as the title says, I have been pretty busy these last few days, hence the lack of posting on the forums.
Having already got A message to a friend up and running I started on another product.

I hope to have that finished tommorrow, I need to get it finished as I am in need of getting things moving at a constant rate...not to mention having a few bills that I HAVE to get paid asap.

I hope this new product sells alot better than what I have already done.
It's more of a targetted product so should do better.

It's almost March already which has got me thinking about what the last two months have been like.
I can't believe how quick it's going at the moment, yet I am NOT happy with what I have achieved so far, I should have done better so I will have to ramp it all up a notch to get to where I should be.

I am not that far behind so catching up should be doable.

Are you where you planned to be since the new year?

Viral list building

Elsewhere on this blog I have already mentioned Scott Boulch, the author of "The death of adsense" and the "autospy" report.

Scott even tells you how he used this very viral list builder to build an incredible list of 40,000 in next to no time.
Proof it worked, and worked well.

It seems something has really pissed him off for now he is GIVING it away, from the email he sent out it loooks as though the "gurus" have attempted to copy what he did.

Well... I don't know the ins and outs of that but I do know this works due to watching it work myself when the reports came out.

I have grabbed it myself and plan to utilise it.

Get your one by clicking the box below....




The basic idea itself has been around a while but this has a different twist to it.

What do you think about this?

Marketing and greed

Sad to see that greed seems to be at the forefront of some marketers minds where it only has the opposite effect.

There are hundreds of ways to market online, utilising different sites and tactics to get your name "out there", yet some will risk blowing a hole in their reputation by breaking the TOS of various sites.

Sad but it happens.

I am taking about sites like Myspace, who make it clear it is NOT for commercial purposes, unless you have a band that is.
Yet the fact Myspace owners use it for marketing seems to make some marketers moan about hypocrisy...huh?
How else will they pay for all that bandwidth every month?

Its getting more traffic than google, it does seem hard to believe google would get overtaken but it has happened.

If you use Myspace, use it to meet people and build relationships, after all THAT is part of marketing, in fact it is one of the biggest parts of marketing.

That's not breaking the TOS.

I have to laugh when I get emails from the big names in marketing bragging about how well they are doing using myspace and sharing a link to their myspace profile, only to click on it and find they have been banned!

DOH.... good move.

Are the greed glands on these people getting to big?

Tagged.... and why I read blogs!

Seems Alice Seba has chased tagged me with the lastest blog tag doing the rounds..

Thanks Alice. :o)

So.. what is this tag about?

Why do I blog?

I blog mainly because it is a great way to share my thoughts and opinions on lots of things and topics I am interested in.
In many ways it can be a great release on things that occupy your thoughts, once blogged about it can be so easy to let it go and move on to other things.

I also blog because I LOVE it! ;o)

Blogging is a great platform for sharing in real time and often blogs can be the first place you hear news about something of interest.

Blogging is also a good mental escape which is one reason I read blogs, it is always great to read varying opinions on a topic, after all its the contrast of opinions that makes things interesting.
If we were all the same wouldn't it be boring?

A blog is a reflection of yourself.

The top 3 blogs I read.

That's an interesting question which I am struggling to narrow down, as there are some great blogs out there.
Seems a hard choice to make, yet as Alice points out it can change from one week to the next.

So I will choose those which I check out first when doing the round's so to speak, in no paticular order the 3 I pick are....

1. Lynn Terry's clicknewz.. I agree with Alice... getting lazy Lynn.. JOKE! ;o)

2. Paul Short.. Now I am glad he is back to blogging more frequently, got his arse in gear! ;o)

3. Seth Godin.. The man has a unique way of looking at marketing and I never know what to expect from his post, except to be suprised! :o)

These 3 blogs I do 100% recommend you add to your blog reading list... as well as keep reading mine of course!

Now I have to tag 5 people..so here goes.

1. Martin Avis

2. Jason Lewis

3. Brian Clark

4. John Carlton

5. Jason Moffatt

Why do I bother

Today is a day to share the love and yet did I waste my time?

On the forums and some blogs I read there is so much complaining about people selling snake oil. selling crap, pushing all and sundry to them in newslatters etc.. I almost think well WHY do you give them ya bloody money?

C'mon, lets get real here its because of those who complain that the "snake oil salesmen" get rich..its thier money they get rich from??

Yet someone like me, with NO list, no crap products or snake oil for that matter spends time writing up something that almost anyone can share an benefit from with a unique twist to it, gets bugger all reaction?!

WHY?

Why do I even bother?

A message for YOU

What a looooong weekend it has been for me so far. :o)

I have just seen my sons which is great, they had a great weekend going to birthday parties with their mates, they enjoyed themselves which is ALL that matters.
My mum had them today for the day, so I got a chance to see them and grab a hug or two. :o)

So I have been very busy getting my new site up and going, though I did hit some snags in the setting up of it, all done now thanks to Karl Warren for the help in joining the dots..I owe ya mate.

Speaking of Karl..
I posted a song he did on my myspace page and think you should go listen to it.
A good voice on the man. :o) The link is at the top of this page.

So.. the new site?

Well some of you won't be suprised at it knowing what I am like, some of you may be suprised, but pleased I got me arse in gear and finished it.

I am pleased with myself as I learnt an awful lot while setting this up, nothing teaches us better than doing.

There has been alot said about the 7dollar report that has been selling well over the last week or so, it is a good report, but I am NOT promoting it, just ACTING on it.

This is MY unique twist on that idea... utilising the viral power of the set up I hope YOU can make the most from it.

Take a look at "A message to a friend" and I hope you like it, let me know what you think.

Frustrated and need help!

Been real busy today sorting the next part of my plans out and hit a brick wall.

It would seem that I have learnt alot though, and thats a good thing, never unhappy when I am learning something in the process, though I am frustrated to have hit the wall!

I need to get this sorted out asap due to things I have to get sorted out offline, you know, I had two bills this morning which I don't yet have the funds for, so that drove me alot today, I wouldn't have stopped until it was done had I not got stumped!

hhhm... dam thing! lol.

The thing I am stumped with is a scripts, not that good with them but learning all the while, yet keen to learn more so I just need a little help learning to get past where I am.

I am excited by this though as it is something I know I can keep utilising and I also have the end result of what I want to be doing online.

Can't say more than that really. :o)
Except to say as soon as it is done it will be mentioned on here first!

Payperpost issues

Previously I posted on here about trying out payperpost, getting paid for blogging, as you know I already started to use the service on my Viral blog and have been happy with it so far.

I do feel it is a service that should be geared to helping the smaller bloggers out in the blogosphere, most of them bloggers are stay at home parents and such.. its an extra to help with the bills etc.

I am as I have mentioned keen to try it out on this blog too, it all helps, yet there are issues that really bug me at the moment which have stopped me utilising it here so far, one is the fact on the payperpost dashboard it list my blogs as having a PR of 0... odd check out the PR (google page rank) on this blog and its a respectable 4... my other blog is a PR 1.

Why is it important?

Alot of the opps we can take have a min PR rank in order to take them... well I cant take what I should be able to take when the issues like that are there.

The higher PR the better the opps and rewards are.

So..when they sort that out I may well use the service on this blog.

Also the ranking system from the advertisers is a little unfair.
You can get a bad rep for something you know nothing of... how are you supposed to improve if you don't even know what was wrong?

It could be that the advertiser simply doesn't like the colour of your blog?!

That is ridiculous, the ONLY thing they should be rating is the CONTENT of the post, thats what they pay for.

So...sort these issue out, I may give it a go here.

If the issue's are not sorted out I think alot of small bloggers wil abandon it, they need to look elsewhere if they are relying on the income for bills etc.

Raisng my vibration...LOA!

Interesting things happening lately, and I left it late in the day to blog, but here goes...
As I mentioned in the last post we had a chance to watch the secret.

I watched it again last night just before I slept, which I hoped I could keep it all fresh in my thoughts as a fell asleep with a possibilty of influencing my dreams.

One thought was that a guy in the secret said he kept getting bills so started to visualise getting cheques in the mail.

Well i thought "hey thats pretty cool an idea" so did think of it as I fell asleep.

Well got up today, to see two letters on the floor, it never once crossed my mind for it to be yet another bloody bill.. so I opened them.

Wow.. that was fast.. my FIRST google adsense cheque... :o)

The FIRST thing I said was "thank you".

It was great to have that in my hand and say "hey just maybe this shit works a bit."

The lesson and thoughts I got from this whole experience was great.

If you have had one you will relate to my next thought.
I have to say it was a little shocking to see it was so plain.. you know what I am saying.

Don't get me wrong, I was chuffed to finaly see a result like that but wow, did google miss a great marketing trick there? A motivational trick?

I mean the cheque is on a very plain invoice with a green backround... yet NO big "google" logo.

I would love to have seen that as it would RAISE your vibration further, just by the visual element.
I would have asked for the plain bit back at the bank and framed the bloody thing !

Am I the only one to think that?

The secret!

What A great weekend with my boys, we also had a chance to watch the secret, as a mate bought it on dvd after I had told him about it.

A very good "visual" lesson it was, for me and my sons.

Interesting that my sons, who are 12, and almost 14, understood it pretty well.
They grasp the fact ALL that matters is the way you feel, its the alignment of your feelings with your thoughts and actions that makes the perfect harmony for creation.

I explained we create ALL the time so why not CHOOSE what we create.. that made alot of sense to my boys.
I am glad to have watched it with them, for them to have this knowledge at their age is VERY empowering.

For me it made the understanding a little better, as you know I have read the books that speak of these laws, like "As a man thinketh" for example.

I do already know about it but I have NOT been fully utilising this or as they say "living it" in the way I should.
This has got me thinking alot and THAT is empowering itself.

I will watch the secret again and again.. for each time the knowledge will expand...by the laws of attraction itself.
I will write some interesting views on all this as I am deaf I will have a slightly different perspective than most of you...a pretty UNIQUE perspective, though we all have a unique perspective because we ARE unique.. obviously mine is from a different angle altogether.

Interesting weekend.
