So What! I Cursed

Sowhat_!

Two never before things I did on my blog post yesterday:

  1. I opened up.
  2. I cursed.

I emotionally opened up about a situation I had in my personal life, I have never done that before. I needed to gt my first and most followed advice out and I needed to confirm it with a personal experience.

I also cursed, I have never ever cursed on any platform, yet I occasionally do it in real life, let’s face it, we all do it at one point or another.

Yesterday’s post was a beginning of a new era for my blogging journey, what did you think about it? Comment below and let me know, I like some feedback.

What’s the plan?

blueprint - 1

Now that I am back and committed to blogging again, you may ask, what’s your plan?

It’s easy:

  1. At least 1 blog post every weekday.
  2. At least 50% of my posts will be useful information.
  3. I know I need to change the design… ASAP!
  4. I know I need to change some back-end settings… ASAP!
  5. Promote my other services: 25%
  6. Talk about my personal life: 25%
  7. Stay calm and drink tea!

I’m also thinking about creating a brand new blog to talk about my personal life as this blog was a created for business. What do you think? Comment below.

Holy guacamole! I wrote 1000 blog posts!

It was said before that having a number in your WordPress posts link is good for seo. I’m not sure if this is still true, I’ll have to check on that.
So, when I setup this blog some 33 years ago , I did put that fact in my considerations. My options in terms of numbers were the date or the post id within the permalinks. I thought the post id is better and easier to type.
We all know that a post id is just the post number. After writing my post this morning, the link that was generated for the post showed my post id (see for yourself) and that number was 1000.
Now, granted that done posts ended in the trash, and some was never published, but hey, that’s a 1000 blog post/articles in this blog and I’m not even a writer!
Pretty darn good huh?

What have I been up to? (The professional stuff)

ebaybitcoin

I’m a big boy, so I will admit it… I have not blogged in 8 years!

My affiliate links on this blog are half broken and the income died slowly from the working affiliate links.

I don’t believe in the 9to5 bullshit.

In the past 8 years I changed my focus to a higher income than affiliate marketing, consulting.

I became a Certified eCommerce consultant, focused on eBay and Paypal. I have designed a few courses and action plans for many individuals, small businesses, and mid-sized businesses.

I have put my entire 19+ years of online selling and marketing into my courses and teachings. And I enjoyed teaching it.

My second focus was is still in cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is the most popular one, however, I have built a triple edge business around it, whether it’s mining locally, in the cloud, trading locally, online, or educating businesses who’s interested.

I have also built (well, not 100% done) 3 other businesses, call them startups if you like, all with my own capital.

That’s all for now. This was a catch up kind of post. I’ll fill you in tomorrow about my personal life in the past 8 years.

P.S. This is the first official time I ever reveal myย  bitcoin and cryptocurrency business online.

I survived over one year without blogging!

About 4 years ago I thought that I spend too much time blogging. Well last time I blogged here was over a year ago. And if you are about to ask what about twitter? I would say that as of 2 years ago I stopped calling Twitter a micro blog, instead I call it what it is (a status update service).
And I have been tweeting. And foursquaring and socializing and coding and….. You bane it ๐Ÿ™‚
I have been busy doing many things, but the most important thing is what I used to call project W. 17 months after I first announced this project we finally opened the doors enabling beta testers to get early invites at the project’s beta site.
Worrds.com is project w. And any one can sign up right now for a beta invite at Worrds and we will send you an invite as soon as we can.
I have a couple of posts coming up then I will try my best to blog here from time to time, but I will (for sure) be blogging at Wordds.
It’s good to be back ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re back again, With a new attitude!

fans

I am way too excited over this, it’s been almost 3 months I haven’t blogged here and the blog was down for some technical errors since we have moved it to it’s new home on the new dedicated server… But who cares? Right?

Well, I am back with a new attitude towards this blog, you may notice some changes here (Like the design and so on) but the main change is in the way I write and communicate with everyone.

Also, the office is gone, we may get a new one again by the winter time, but for now, I am blogging on the road (through my G1 phone), at the coffee shop (Gotta love net-books in Starbucks) and even from my bed!

I got involved in 3 big projects through the 3 months non-active here, 2 of them are done and the third one is going extremely strong, I am even more excited about the last project, that I can not wait (as I should) to share it with you, however I will only share hints until the project is ready to go into the lights, so for the next 15 days I’ll refer to it with the codename: Project W.

The first hint about Project W is that it has something to do with Blogger.com or WordPress.com but much much bigger than both combined!

Also, for those of you wondering about the school at ‘Wahol’ it is my absolute pleasure to announce that we have completed the beta period (Although it took us 2 extra weeks than what we have scheduled earlier) but it was a 100% success, well we only had 79 of the 100 initial members that actually completed the course all the way to the end.

The doors will be open again within the next 4 weeks, so just keep an eye out and you will get more details before you know it ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, starting tomorrow, I will start a 2 weeks series of a (While I was gone) articles that I have wrote within the last 3 months and saved for later viewing, it’s mainly of what’s going on Online and some videos as well (About 20 short and sweet articles all together) and I hope you will like it.

To make sure you will not miss any update, just signup to get this blog by email (Link on top right corner) or get the RSS feed (We have a whole new server along with the power of feedburner) so please do signup for it (Like also on top right corner).

The one thing that I have to say, is how much I have missed everyone, although I have been very active on Facebook and Twitter, but I have missed you guys the most ๐Ÿ™‚

Until next time (Hopefully in less than 3 months!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers!

A review of the wpToGo app for the G1 phone!

This is just a quick post to review a great application (in my opinion) to blog from.

The phone is none other than the true iPhone killer, the T-Mobile G1 powered by Google’s Android (do you recall when I mentioned that we may get a free Google OS by 2010? Well, it’s getting closer!).

This app has all the basic options that any WordPress blogger may need, whether you host your own wordpress or you have a wordpress.com however, it,s only the basic options you will get, for example, you can add tags, categories, links from within your post, bold or italic for formatting and also included is to upload pictures.
It does need a lot more options, for example, a spll chck! Or at least more formatting options. But for now, it’s a great tool to have on hand.

Ofcourse I have just used it to write this post, now I’ve got some emails to take care of.

P.S. for iPhone owners, you can get the app made by wordpress from iphone.wordpress.org

Doors are closing (open ASAP!)


I know you’re busy, so I’ll let you in on what’s happening…
 
I just heard from Gideon Shalwick and Yaro Starak that they are closing their doors to their popular Become A Blogger Premium course.

Click Here to Watch the FREE Blogging Video Tutorials

 
See here for more details: Go here.
 
So far, over 850 people have signed up and the course has already had some raving reviews. For example, here’s what Christine, one of the members, said recently:
 
“Honestly Gideon your videos are great!
 
Now that I’m looking at doing business on the internet and watched a few videos from others who claim to be gurus; theirs are really awful, too fast to see what they’re doing and not explaining things in a logical sequence as if done on the fly.
 
Your teaching skills and videos are in a class of their own. Keep up the good work!”
 
So, obviously, people are loving the course so far.
 
But now, Yaro and Gideon want to close the whole thing down since it’s becoming a bit too popular.
 
They said they want to focus their energies on their members, and frankly, getting too many of them could spread their attention too thin.
 
So, I thought I’d better let you know about this if you still wanted to get in before they shut the doors indefinitely.
 
Here’s the scoop:
 
– What: Become A Blogger Premium is closing doors
 
– When: Friday, Feb 6, 2009 at 11:59pm USA EST
 
If you don’t want to miss out on this, make sure you head on over to the following page before it’s too late:
 
http://www.becomeablogger.com/


I hope you can still get in!


PS: Make sure you have a look at the bonuses, they are worth more than the whole membership itself!
