Milestones and Minestrone

Milestones and Minestrone

I have a milestone to announce.  Thursday’s post was the 100th on this site.  When I published my first post on January 17, 2013 I promised to publish weekly.  I guess since I have 100 posts here in less than a year I managed to keep my promise…

Who knew?  That this humble blog would thrive?  Certainly not me, I had no particular reason to expect this kind of result.  It’s your fault, not mine.  Thanks for being there for me and coming back.  It really does move me.  Thank You.

I’ve got about 10 gazillion things running through my mind right now, and I’d like to write them all.  People to thank, wonderment, all the things that make me so incredibly glad to be a part of this community…

Minestrone

All this warm and fuzzy and $6.00 will get me a nice bowl of Minestrone at my favorite restaurant.  This is not a retirement post, I’ll keep plugging along.  I’m going to re publish my first post, not because I am too lazy to really write here, but because I like it and it is just as relevant as it was the first time around.  Well, maybe a little bit because I am lazy…

A note:  I didn’t end this one with ‘I’m just sayin’’  That didn’t show up until my 4th post, in February.

As I ski out of control down the slippery slope marked “Internet Marketers Only”

How did I get here?  No, HOW DID I GET HERE???  A just a regular guy like me, trying to get by with the bare minimum of effort and work.  What could possibly put me here, now?

An overnight success, that’s what I am.  Long as you know that it’s about a 2 year night to get over…

I spent some time wondering why nobody had REALLY put out anything to help the poor saps like me that are falling all over themselves trying to make a living on line.  Lots of offers of help, but not much real help…Lots and lots and lots of expensive ‘help’ but no results…at least in my case.

Wonder of wonders.  After a couple of years of trying and not even remotely succeeding, the light bulb came on.  I’m not sure yet if it’s a 12 volt led or a halogen spot light, but I am, finally, making progress.  Be it ever so humble…

Which brings me here, to this website and this minute.  I plan to, no I PROMISE to ‘tell it like it is’.  Nobody else that I can find is at all ready to do that task.  I have found some stuff that works, and some that clearly doesn’t.  I will tell stories and name names.  I don’t know what will and won’t work for you, but I do know what has and hasn’t for me.

Which brings me to this:  If you are on line at all, you know that Jon Olsen has re written his old classic, now cleverly called “Pizza Plan 2”.  It’s about budgeting your time and money to make some money on line, and it’s the straight stuff. I got a ton out of the original and the newer, updated version is free and ready!  I recommend it most highly.

Know now that when you click on the link there will be three ‘upsells’ that he will try to sell you when you are getting the free book.  You just have to wait to the end to get the book free, it’s way worth it.  The OTOs (one time offers) aren’t bad, either.  If you’ve got some money laying around, there would be worse places to leave it…Just right click on the link and pick ‘save link as’ to download it to your computer.  It’s in PDF so that ANYBODY can read it…

Which leads me to close this week with one of my very favorite bellyaches.  What’s up with all these ‘OTO’s when you haven’t even laid eyes on the website or product?  Really? You think I might want to part with $150 on a guess?  Really?  Probably not so much for me…

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for reading this.  Please feel free to leave a comment, (it’d make me feel so good:)  I hope you book mark this site and come back often.  I plan to put up new stuff every week…
