The Best Money Making Strategy I Ever Stole

The Best Money Making Strategy I Ever Stole

First I must clarify I do not think all the people selling a "system" or offering wealth in exchange for a small training fee are out there coning people. Some people that are making great products and services and truly changing lives exist, but this strategy won't work against the "good ones" anyhow. It will only mop the floor with the scum of the new age. Also, on purpose, I wrote this against the grain of what we are told and even what we have learned gets more people to read... Call it an experiment.   For years I have been watching...

Living Life Sometimes Means Waiting

Living Life Sometimes Means Waiting

I've been thinking about how I put out a lot of content online, but most of it is far from personal. I don't often talk about the struggles of life or the things that are bothering me. Yet I'm the first to tell someone if they want to reach and help others. They should share about the personal struggles and hardships they face. But... ... Here we are and I haven't really done that. Today is different However As I sit here I look down at my leg I notice the hole in my shin. Maybe I should have gotten stitches or went to the doctor or the...

Hit It With The Big Bashy Thing First

Hit It With The Big Bashy Thing First

In looking for an answer on a computer issue the difference between dd and ddrescue I came across an interesting concept that I have been thinking about. The application is practical for most things we do if you understand the why and apply it properly. As Journeyman Geek says 'Most UNIX graybeard would say "Use the big bashy thing" - it's the "right" way to do it.' He may not be agreeing with what he attributes to the graybeard but I think it is genius! Bashing away at things may seem like the wrong choice when you aren't trying to break...

On the way to Clean and Organized

On the way to Clean and Organized

It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that I wrote you guys about how I was working so hard to get things cleaned and organized on my computers… But… Here I am again. Not completed from last time… Anyone who knows what I’m talking about here knows that if you don’t keep things organized as you go then it becomes a daunting task to do it later. Sometimes that is easier said than done. We get busy, things get in the way, or others were forgotten. Part of getting it right is having the right system. And I have had my share of “wrong” systems. I...

The Solution Technical Blogs with Low Traffic

During the research, I am doing for my Online Marketing Guide I came across a common problem, one that I have been facing. Missing Traffic In the past, this blog used to get around 10,000 unique visitors to technical posts. It ranked rather well in google and that is what I can attribute most of the traffic to. However, since I took the blog down for about 1 year my ranking dropped, but I realized so did the landscape. I have found many technical blogs no longer get the traffic they once enjoyed. This traffic can be motivating in itself to...

Another Dollar —– Another Day

I wanted to get this out there because it has been so long! Basically, I have been hard at work as you have you and like everyone in our predicament I end up saying “I’m too busy.” <–(a lot) But I decided I have to make some time to make things happen  If you don’t know my wife and I recently moved back to Tulsa. While this has been so much easier giving us more time to see each other and less time driving and expense it also means I have been doing a lot of “catching up” if we can call it that. We also still regularly travel back to...

The Problem with Most Technical Blogs These Days

The Problem with Most Technical Blogs These Days

Solution to come in a later post, but... The problem with your awesome technical blog that exposes new methods and techniques of doing things is that someone just copied an excerpt from your latest post. They posted it verbatim to Quora or Stack Exchange. Trust me these sites have way more domain authority than you and they will take your "random" traffic. But I think I have some solutions to this problem especially since the name of the game is to keep progressing and moving forward. So if you are missing traffic and wonder why. You are...

A Quick Word On What I Have Been Posting

You may have noticed some interesting looking, but incomplete posts that I have put out recently. This is ok. It is intentionally done this way. Partly as an experiment related to online marketing and the current state of SEO. Beyond that, it is an experiment on how people consume content and the best way to deliver knowledge. I hope you find these posts useful and possibly entertaining. I also want you to comment and interact with the things you are interested in. I promise it will all work better if you get involved.
