What About You…….

Is there anyone out there reading this post that might have come across the blog by accident or came to have a look into Internet Marketing. Are you looking to quit the day J.O.B. Do you want a new challenge. Are you unemployed, looking for a different J.O.B. What is it that you really want to do. You can stay in the same job till you retire, wait for your Gold watch or whatever. You could also change, make that move or at least give it a shot. That’s what I’m doing, giving it a shot. My wife knows I do a lot on the Internet, she thinks I’m stupid. I think she believes no one can make money on the Internet. I just say fine… if that’s what you think. Everyone to their own opinion. However, it would give me great pleasure in proving my wife wrong, prove to her that it is possible to make money or in some instances earn a living online.

Where do you start? Well, it depends. Can you use a computer, can you go on to the Internet. If yes, that’s a start. You need to start slowly, taking your time, learning as you go along. Where do you start.  Well, try out Resell Rights Weeky, you can join for Free. It gives you an insight on what it’s all about. You can learn at your own pace. As you learn your confidence will grow and the more you’ll want to do.

Eventually you will be able to create your own product. You can also re create a product and make it your own. John Thornhill explains in a series of videos how to do that. And I tell you he knows his stuff.

I recently joined John’s Masterclass. It’s a 36 week programme and at the end of it you will be able to go your own way. If you enter your name and e mail at the top of the page you will see a video about John. You have to make  a choice. You can have a go, watch videos and if it’s not for you, fine. A lot of students on John’s class are now successful Internet Marketers in their own right. I hope to join them.

It won’t happen overnight. There’s a lot of hard work to be done. Researching is one thing you must do if you are going to create a product. It’s a lot of fun. You get to meet a lot of people who are trying the same a syou. Everyone helps one another. Don’t think that because there are thousands of people doing the same thing that you can’t do it. There’s enough for everyone. Think of the population of the planet. Think of information products people want. I need to say no more.

All I can say now….. “It’s Your Move”. MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

E Book

I have now decided what e book to write. I’ve been watching Week 11 videos and reading Paula Brett’s Operation e book. I need to do a bit more research and then get typing. I have written a draft on part of my first chapter then I need to decide the way forward.

I haven’t done much on my e book since I started during the week. I am considering changing again and maybe going to another niche. I am getting an e book re written by a friend for a very small fee. I’ll change the graphics and then get it up for sale. I still intend on writing my own. I’m leaving it until next week. I probably will stay with the one I’ve got seeing as I have started writing. I haven’t done much research either. Need to get my act in order.

Sometimes I haven’t got the patience to do research and when I do I can’t decide what to keep and what to throw away. Typical me. the fact i started writing is good as I know I will get it completed at some point. I need to go. To all those writing their first e book. GOOD LUCK

Sheds & Fencing

I thought I would give a friend of mine exposure for his business. He has been building sheds, fencing, decking and anything else you can think for a number of years so he has the experience. His prices are very reasonable and you get excellent value for money. Don’t take my word for it, go onto his site and find out for yourselves. Unfortunately, he works in Kirkintilloch, a town on the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland so it will be West Central Scotland, but hey, he might go further, I don’t know. You would have to ask. I think he would travel 50 maybe 60 miles but would add a wee charge for distance. Anyway folks, go to:

http://www.premiersheds-fencing.co.uk

Good luck. Anyone who visits his site can let him know that you got the info from my blog.

Runrig

I remember first going to see Runrig in 1975 or thereabouts, not quite sure. Back then they were unknown, going from the Isle of  Skye where they first started, I believe. I should know I am from the Islands myself. In the early days you knew they were going to get somewhere. They are an absolutely fantastic Gaelic Rock Band. They are famous the world over.  Runrig are probably famous for Loch Lomond. There have been a few different versions over the years but listen and watch the whole clip. You will enjoy.

The amazing thing is a German Bundesliga football team, FC Koln use the song as their anthem. I should re phrase, they are definately using the tune, the words I did not understand, it was in German.

Waterboarding

In a national newspaper there was an article about Waterboarding. It’s apparently what the Americans used on terroists to get information from them. You are blindfolded then you lie down on a table that is angled so that you legs are 6 inches higher that your head. A towel is then wrapped tightly round your  head.  After that water is poured onto your face and the water seeps slowly into your face. After a while you get the feeling that you are drowning and panic sets in but there is nothing you can do. Apparently after a few seconds you give up and tell all.

Allegedly, ex President Bush reckoned it saveed London from terror atrocities. The question was it right or wrong to, some people call it torture. “Was it torture”. A journalist for a newspaper took the “test” and he said it was being like “a circle in hell”. He said it was torture. I am sure there are people who will say it was torture and some will say, “If it prevented a terror attack, go for it”. Obviously you get the goody goody folk who will say it is torture. Maybe it is, maybe not.

I have my own thoughts but to think what these people are doing to this world, bombing, maiming innocent men, women and children. Do they deserve to be treated in this way? It is something that will go on regardless if we want to or not.

If doing that saved innocent lives maybe it is worth it…

Facebook

I think most of us use Social Networking sites whether it be Facebook, Bebo or whatever. Personally I use Facebook quite a lot, but how secure is it.How many of us have personal details on view, like DATE of BIRTH etc. I have my date of birth visible but let me assure you it will be coming off shortly, as soon as this post is done.

I read an article about safety on Facebook, so let me give you 10 of what not to do…

  1. DATE AND PLACE OF BIRTH. This places you at a high risk of identity theft. They are the most commonly used security questions on password resetting sites. If a criminal can reset that they can access whatever they want, including your bank account.
  2. MOTHERS MAIDEN NAME. A lot of sites use your mother’s maiden name to authenicate who you are. They also use the school you went to as  a security question, so do not post this on Facebook either.
  3. ADDRESS. Do you want everyone to know where you live? Puts you at risk, once again to ID theft, and remember criminals and burglars would love to know where you live, they would be able to find out when you are away on your holidays. Who wants to come back from holiday to find they have been burgled. Don’t post your address on Facebook.
  4. HOLIDAYS. I mentioned above mentioning your address on Facebook and the people who are looking for such things. The same goes for your holidays. Beware of mentioning when you are going away. If you give away holiday dates on Facebook and you already have your address on your public profile your local burglar will be making plans while you are away sunning yourself.
  5. SHORT TRIPS. Something else that can be a risk, mentioning if you are going shopping on a certain day/time. Once again burglars love this sort of thing. If you want to mention anything that involves dates/times etc use the message service on Facebook. I suppose we all mention things and not realised it. Be careful when mentioning dates/times and any other information that would be good to the bad guy.
  6. INAPPROPRIATE PHOTOS. Watch what sort of photos you post on Facebook. Don’t post racy, illicit or any offensive or indeed incriminating photos. Apparently bosses and prospective employers look at Facebook, so watch what sort you post. Photos of you drunk every weekend wouldn’t look good to a prospective employer. Don’t take photos at work and then post them online, if you do you are looking to get sacked. The same goes for videos. Remember once these are online they are probably there forever, even if you delete them. It only take for one person to copy the phots and pass them around.
  7. CONFESSIONALS. These can also get you the “chop”. Using Facebook whilst at work and posting things that you are skiving is not going to look good for you, is it?? So do not post anything about your employment. Remember, like I mentioned in the last paragragh once on FACEBOOK it’s on FOREVER.
  8. PHONE NUMBER. Need I say anything….. DO NOT POST. If you do you are more than likely to be bombarded by hoax calls.
  9. CHILDRENS NAMES. Can be used by fraudsters for identity theft. An adult will eventually notice their credit rating is affected. Children won’t. Paedophiles also scour the net looking for children. Don’t give them an opportunity.
  10. PUBLIC PROFILE. Don’t post a full profile. It will not only exist on Facebook, but also on search engines like Google.Keep your profile to a minimum and everything else private.

That’s it folks. I am now going to log on to my Facebook and check my profile and change as required. You do the same. Stay Safe and enjoy FACEBOOK.

Nothing Much

It’s going to be a small post today. It has been a quiet week for me in my Masterclass. It was one video which I couldn’t finish and I had to contact Paula at Support. Where would I be without Support. Probably still on Week 6. I thing when I had problems with the graphics. I need to find out what Paula did to fix the problem. Week 7 was downloading the widlink plug in. I managed to everything that John did on the video, until that is I logged into my dashboard and plug ins and found that the plug in was not there.

Other news. Is it not justified that at long last pensioners are to get more money. High time that they did. Wayne Rooney is happy that he is now earning £250 000 per week. SHOCKING, especially with the state of this country. I wonder if that is before or after tax. I wonder who pays the tax. Anyway, good luck to the guy. I’m sure we all would happily take a quarter of a million a week.

News last week was that we sent £4 billion on aid to foreign countries, some of these countries house terrosists. Is some of that money used in funding terrorists. I do believe we should help out poorer countries but I think it is now time to reduce that and use to fund our own country. Britain now has an Aircraft Carrier but no aircraft to put on it. How stupid is that. And some of that £4billion could help our Military, new hospitals etc etc. I think Britain have gone too soft. It’s time to look after No. 1.

That’s it folks. Talk soon.

Chilean Miners.

The whole world is looking at Chile at the moment. At the time of writing this post the 15th miner was taken up to the surface. It’s absolutely fantastic that they are being rescued at last. They will be welcomed by their families, rescuers, their fellow countrymen and women and the worlds media.

What must it have been like to be stuck down in the darkness for so long, 69 days, is that not amazing. The best thing about this is that were no casualties or fatalities. After the hype has gone away, and on their road to recovery what will life be like. One thing for sure their lives have changed forever. No doubt there will be books written and a movie. I hope they are left in peace to get back to some sort of normal life.

They will have plenty of invitations from everywhere I reckon. One of these invites, according to the press is an invite to Old Trafford, Manchester to watch Manchester United. The invite which I think isa fantastic thing to do was organised by Sir Bobby Charlton. If they accept I hope they have a brilliant time. I don’t see that for quite a while until they have recovered from their ordeal.

Well folks, that’s it for another day. Will be back soon. Take care in the meantime.

Update!

This is my first post for a while. I did update the “About” page but that’s about it. I am waiting for a reply from Paula regarding my Masterclass, so hopefully I should receive something today. I need to move on. However, I have been watch videos on different subject to do with WordPress in the last couple of days. A friend wants me to build him a web site for his business. I promised hin months ago. I am attempting to build a static site using WordPress so I have been looking at video tutorials etc. Any guidance is appreciated. I also found this site very interesting http://www.worpressvideos.tv The site is very useful. A few videos to watch, excellent for the newbies, me included. I am also waiting for a new programme by John Thornhill to come out. It’s pre launch today and launch next week. When I receive anything I will post it on here at the earliest opportunity.

My next problem…Ezine Articles. I have one article on there. It’s been there a few months but the hassle to get it live was amazing. Don’t get me wrong I suppose they have standards and don’t like affiliate links or whatever but sometimes I feel like giving up. I submitted an article last week and waited a few days for a reply. I got one but there is a problem so I am now waiting to see what the problem is. I e mailed them from within and waiting for a reply so I can correct the problem(s).

That’s it for now folks until the next time, have a nice one.
