Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year to you who are bored enough to visit this collection of nicely-organized words. For those in the United States of Crapola, hold hands with your family and neighbors as we get shuffled off the cliff by our imperial federal government. It is laughably pathetic how utterly stupid and dangerously power hungry the people we send to Washington are. Freakin’ bunch of sociopaths.
Anyway, a new year approaches. I don’t participate in resolutions. First off the new year day is just a day on a stupid calendar. It means nothing but what we assign it. Second, resolutions seem like a way to create needless future guilt. They hardly ever stick. I see these resolutionists clogging up the gym during January not to be seen again the rest of the year. Why does it take January 2 to get ass moving?
2012 was a boring year. I neither advanced or backpedaled in my inclination for collecting online coin. I stopped slinging WordPress blogs filled with affiliate crap and Adsense and instead added to my flotilla of Squidoo lenses.
Squidoo was amazing during Halloween. It somewhat sucked ass during Christmas. A disappointment for me really. I started building affiliate Tumblr blogs with product that I pinned to Pinterest and tweeted to Twitter. I also re-blog on Tumblr, adding an affiliate link to the product (shoes, coats, sunglasses, etc) as it’s posted to my Tumblr. Folks love Tumblr and Pinterest. I’m helping them acquire the physical product of their digital dreams. Or at least that is the idea.
I believe I’ve recently discussed a lukewarm interest in Kindle. I think if you are inclined to write you might be better off putting your interest to work in Amazon’s world than trying to survive in Google’s dystopia. I hope to find the motivation to begin this operation in earnest. I think the potential is great. Foremost if you are going to create an ebook why would you put it out on PDF to sell on Clickbank? It will quickly get stolen by any number of forums and you won’t see a freakin’ penny more in sales. Use Kindle and you are spared that indignity.
I really like Kindling by Geoff Shaw. He has a particular focus on fiction books which is helpful. I’ve never written books before but this resource is very good.
I have long detailed my disgust with the Warrior Forum but I have to say that the premium product offered by Bryan Kumar, Warrior Book Club, is also rather grand. It’s not so much a WSO but a club of sorts. If I can’t get it done with the guidance of these then it’s not to be.
2013 is the first year that I haven’t read a bunch of cheerleading from the guberus how it will be the best year ever. I believe, in fact, it to be the worst year ever. The economies around the world are likely to suck, particularly in the US. That may effect your affiliate sales. I think Google is going to continue to damage the little guy’s opportunity for success. The stale methods of creating cash from days of yore are done. I think Amazon’s self-publishing platform to be a reasonable opportunity for making an honest online buck.
