The Latest From Me!

Not much to say in this post. As you may have noticed I have changed themes and now I have some work to do to get it the way I want. I’ll need to watch some videos on how to do that but that’s OK, I have plenty of videos to show me.  I’ll be doing that in my spare time. At the moment I am concentrating more on eBay. As you are probably aware I sell vintage prints which seems to be taking off again after a quiet spell during the summer. I am currently waiting for more prints and at this moment got my eye on a book on eBay. It’s an exciting way to earn that little bit of extra cash, it’s an excellent hobby and would suggest anyone to take this up.

If you need more info check this out: and then you can see for yourself. Watch the video and learn more. I did write an eBook but it’s not online just yet. It will be in the coming weeks. That’s it for now. I know it’s only a small post but I will be back soon. Until the next time folks, take care.


My Life Online 2

Well, it’s taken me since June 12 to write the follow up to my previous post. It shows a lot about my buying mentallity rather than the selling. This sort of scenario is stopping me and lot’s like me from moving on in the IM world. This sort of behaviour needs to stop. One way is to start unsubscribing from some of those Marketers. That will be my next step. Keep the one’s that really help you. I will now show you some of the products I have bought over the last 3 plus years. Let’s see how many I come up with. They’re not in any order of purchase.

Product Development Control: This product shows you how to create the best products over and over. This was created by John Thornhill & Dan Sumner, two very highly regarded Marketers. I have yet to finish watching all the videos. In fact I only watched two. When will I get time?

Prints Make Profit: This is one of my favourites. As the title suggest this books shows you how to make an income on eBay by taking pages out of old books. That is something I now do. It’s going well, not making a fortune but earning little bits here and there.

Print Sorcery: Another favourite. Once I read the above book I watched the videos from Print Sorcery.  Seven videos to watch showing step by step on how to source the books needed and how to mount them and onto eBay. This was worth the money. The above book and the videos all produced by Stuart Turnbull.

Public Domain Treasure Hunter: This product is by Debra Conrad. Another excellent product. If you’re  interested in creating products or for that matter wanting to know books that are not copy righted this will be for you. Tons of information.

How Was 2009 For You: This is not a product but a post from John Thornhill’s Blog on how he did in that year. John is very successful online and has helped me in the past. All of the products mentioned I have either bought or given as a bonus.

Free Monthly Websites: Yes, a Freebie. Each month you receive a free website, with articles, and an eBook. All you have to do is buy a domain and upload. You should however, make it unique to yourself as much as possible. You can upgrade, will cost you $10pm and you get three different sites etc with different subjects.

Your Software Website: Your very own software website already fully loaded. All you need is to buy a domain name of your choice and drive traffic to it.

Well people, I have a lot more products that I have purchased. many still in their “packaging” so to speak. Like I said I have spent a lot of $$$$ on these products. Only buy if you are going to use them. Use your $$$$ wisely. Concentrate on one thing at a time and you will move on.

If you concentrate on affiliate marketing and you are on someone’s list you can market their products without having to buy the product.

Thaat’s it for now. I’ll try and post more regular, I promise it won’t be three months. Might even have a new theme by then.


My Life Online

My Life Online

I was reading a post on John Thornhill’s blog. It was a post from 2009 which he re posted in June this year. It inspired me to my “Life Online” which started way back in 2000. Back then a computer was new to me, never mind the internet. Here’s how it started.

I was in the RN for 22 years. If you served a minum number of years you could do any course you wanted and I mean any. I didn’t know what course to do, there was so many. Anyway, I decided on Computer Maintenance, I don’t know why but I did and I’m glad that I did. I had to go to Southend – On- Sea for a 4 week course. Everything paid for. I had a great time down there, good laugh. There were about 12 students. If I remember correctly the reason I did the course was that on completion we got to keep the computers which was the base, monitor, keyboard and mouse. It was an interesting course. We had to open the base, take everything out, put back together on the desk and switch on to make sure it worked. Waiting for the right beeps. Brilliant. Before we left we were given an option to upgrade memory for £10.00. I think most us did….from 32mb to 64mb. Now that was back in the day.

I got back home after 4 weeks set up the computer and dabbled. It was dial up in those days, and if the computer went haywire I could usually fix it. It did go haywire once. I was reading an article in a computer magazine and you could send in your fault and if you got picked (which I did) they picked up your machine, fix it and an article in the next months magazine edition. Chuffed. I sent the magazine to one of the guys I knew on the course and never got it
I always wanted to earn money being self employed. I started to find the internet more and more exciting, the information was unbelievable. I came across lots of different ideas. I stumbled on Tradedoubler, looked into that for ages but didn’t really know what to do. Another time I bought 2 sites, one I think was a music site, the other was a site for womens clothes…nothing happened there. I dabbled, never got anywhere.

Fast forward a few years and I bought my first domain and site,the site was built for me, It was a WP site and my first experience of video tutorials. I added a few links, posts etc, but never got any traffic. I had to buy a years hosting and after the 12 months was up I didn’t bother renewing.

Eventually, I got lucky. I don’t recall how but I came across Dave Nicholson. I bought a site from Dave for $67. I signed up to D9 hosting whic I believe from Dave’s link, bought the domain. I didn’t have a clue how to upload. There was something the matter with what I had downloaded. I contacted Dave, he uploaded evrything for me at no extra cost…bless him. My site and guess what, I haven’t had one buyer, nobody has purchased anything….again to do with traffic. I followed Dave after that for a while, getting more and more interested in online marketing. It was a few weeks after that I came across John Thornhill. I am extremely grateful that I came across those two. Two extremely talented marketers who have done exceptionally well online and also help newbies along the way. In my next post I will let you know what products I got either paid or free or on offer. Until then stay cool.


Targeted Traffic For Free – Does It Exist?

You have built your website and boy are you proud!
Surely you have done the hard part and now it is just a matter of sitting back and waiting for all the eager customers to come calling…Is it that simple?

You have done some research and found plenty of ways to pay for traffic, but that wasn’t part of the plan.

It would be great to be able to get traffic to your site without
emptying your savings account wouldn’t it?

30 Day Traffic Flow

So, you try one or two free methods of getting traffic to your site but find that either they don’t work well enough or you weren’t exactly sure how to use them.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a system which allowed you to access
numerous traffic getting methods and to be able to keep track of all
your traffic so you can see at a glance what is working and what is

Such a system has been designed by Dave Whitworth and John Thornhill and it is called the :
 30 Day Traffic Flow.


It is a system that uses a computer program that anyone can use with
free resources.

A system that when followed will give you a steady flow of traffic that will turn into a flood.

If you are sick of all those programs promising thousands of visitors
to your site and you are not afraid of a little work then why not check out the:

30 Day Traffic Flow


Encountered A Setback – Result.

Well I have good news. I had a text message from Jim, my computer repairer. My HDD is ok, no problems at all whatsoever. The problem was in the BIOS settings. I told him I never go into the BIOS settings, to which he replied, “Someone has”. Hmm I thought, did I go into BIOS by mistake when one had too many. No, I wouldn’t have. Anyway, I am just glad it is fixed, that will do for me. A few months ago, I had problems with my DVD drive. I took it out of the computer and got a USB drive from a friend. It seems the drive is working fine so why was it not working when I wanted it to work. Must have been too many gremlins flying about. I am hoping to get it back at the weekend and get back to what I was doing before the mishap.

I was getting a lot of problems, had my e mail hacked, spam emails going to my address book. Got a warning from AOL. I ran my free anti virus, Avast and got the message everything OK. It turned out it wasn’t. I uninstalled Avast downloaded Kaspersky, did a full scan and found plenty of uninvited guests. Make sure you have proper anti virus on your system.


Encountered A Setback

Unfortunately I have had a problem with my main computer. It decided it did not want to play yesterday. I switched it on, started loading and then after about 4 seconds, blank screen and the cursor flashing top left hand of the screen. Oh dear! I switched off 2 or 3 times but to no avail, Windows would not load. Not being to technical I decide to try another screen. Didn’t work, computer didn’t even switch on. I then put it down to the power supply, don’t ask why, I thought it could be that. Next door neighbour is a spark, knocked on his door to ask him to check it. NO answer.

My last resort was someone I knew who fixed my machines before. I didn’t want to contact him initially because he lived quite a distance away. I had text him earlier but he had not replied. Last resort I decide to phone him. He answered straight away. he said his phone was on chaege. I explained the symptoms and he says, “Could be anything, but I think it could be the HDD”. I was gutted, I already had put another one installed in January, less than a year, surely not. I asked him to come and take it away and fix it.

I had to drag old faithful from the cupboard, wipe of the cobwebs and flash her up. Not brilliant but can do a job. When the HDD went earlier this year I hadn’t done a back up. Did I learn my lesson, well, a wee bit. I backed up twice, the last time in Sept or Oct. The Hdd that went kaput last year, he fixed but lost all my data so I now use it to back up, but sad that I cannot get onto the computer. Maybe, an external drive for backups.

Moral of the story is back up regular. I will post when I get an update. If I could afford I would have bought  a new one. I did use the wife’s yesterday but only because she was having a lie in otherwise it would have been a nightmare. Bless, she did let me use it until I got this one up and running.

Anyway, as you might have known already I am going to concentrate on Public Domain. I have 2 prints on eBay, have a look, I set a link at the end of this post. The 2 prints are of Wild Flowers of America. I have mounted/matted them ready for framing. I have 3 posters on as well, thought I would put them on rather than in the bin. I’m looking at people who collect posters might have a look. After the 10 period I’ll leave them off and put the rest of the prints. I had a lot of info on my old machine, so have to start from scratch. Here is the link folks. eBay , by the way, I have only started using the shop recently, still to make it look better. Leave a comment on what you think of the prints. Until the next time.


Multi Profit Monthly

I posted the post below on my other blog. I ‘m trying to get it to as many folk as possible.  The product mentioned for $5.00… no brainer.

My apologies for not posting as often as I would have liked apart from being lazy I was working, slowly I may add on other stuff. In my last post I wrote about “Public Domain” but this post is about another subject. As for the Public Domain I have purchased a book that was published in the 1890’s and intend to remove the plates and sell on ebay. If you want more info please see previous post and click on the link.

Anyway, my mentor John Thornhill along with his good buddy Dave Nicholson with whom I deal a lot because I know that they are genuine marketers. John and Dave are a bit hacked off with stories where “newbies” are being put off getting online because of “QUESTIONABLE” marketers. To prove how honest they both are they are reducing the usual price of $47 per month membership of their flagship product down to $5.00, work that one out, $47.00 per month to a one off payment of $5.00. I wish they did that before I joined.

Multi Profit Monthly is a 12 month training programme which you receive in monthly instalments. You get all the info, all the information in pdf, video, audio and you will also receive support from them. You can even contact them direct. All the support you need, which you receive very swiftly. So folks, for $5.00, would you miss that for the product you will receive and which will improve your Marketing skills.

John and Dave must have had a screw or three loose to give this product away for such a low price.

Check it out.

That’s it folks, I’ll be back soon regarding Public Domain Treasure Hunter.


First Post For A While

I haven’t been doing too much lately. Going to work and working on the computer. I am doing a One Month Mentor programme with John Thornhill, even then I have been very quiet. Two months ago my uncle passed away and I was at my folks for a week or so. I’m away to the Dominican Republic soon for two weeks, my daughter is getting married over there, looking forward to that so I’ll probably be off the radar for these couple of weeks unless I get access to a computer. I’m hoping there will be an internet cafe so I can keep a check on my emails etc.

I went to the Doctors today, to have my blood presure checked. He told me I was a walking “time bomb,” with that and high cholesterol and overweight. It gave me a time to think that one’s lifestyle has to change. Watch the eating, more exercise and easy on the drinking. Need to watch points, as he said “Now that you are over 50, you have to watch and now is the time to change your habits”

Well, that’s it for now folks. I hope some of you who are in my predicament will change. I hope I do, I do like my drink and food but seriously have to change.

This software is so easy to use you would not believe. You can have as many Clickbank Ads on your site as you like. All with your own Clickbank ID.

ClickBank Ad Rotator is an alternate form of advertising for your websites, you can now have ClickBank ads on your web pages, all affiliated with your own ClickBank ID.

Easy as that. If nothing else click on the link and watch the video. You can have Clickbank Ads and Google Adsense on the same site at the same time.


Other Blog

I haven’t posted on here for nearly a week. I have started another blog, so I was busy doing that. I have also started more training, again, it’s a John Thornhill product. This one is called One Month Mentor.  Just as it says, John can have you up and running 31 days. I am a about a third of the way through. it’s similiar to his Masterclass but instead of 36 weeks he can have you up and running in 31 days. Don’t worry if you don’t. People have vacations and other important things to do. I started last Friday but I am about to start Day 13. Really you can do this in your own time at your own leisure or do it every day. It’s entirely up to you.

I can recommend this to anyone. Even though I am still doing his Masterclass course I ahve found this invaluable, extra information that either wasn’t in his Masterclass or I missed. You can also go back and check and the good thing about One Month Mentor is you have only to go back 31 days. You get the whole package at once instead of weekly videos.

If you want to listen to John’s video on One Month Mentor click on the link and listen to what he has to say. At the end of the day you have nothing to lose. If you know John Thornhill you know you’re getting an excellent value for money for your product and learn how to at your own pace, plus there is always amoney back guarantee.  Good luck
