Is there anything that you did 6 years ago producing income for you today?I have made many career changes over the years since graduating college back in 1994. The Dot Com Boom changed my perspective on working for others in a traditional 9 to 5 role. I have been involved with Internet based businesses since my first Internet website advertising sale in August 1998. In some cases since then, I have partnered with traditional brick and mortar companies or other service providers. In these relati

Many years ago, I launched a website at BotheWebguy dot com. I had a number of clients in the Southeast at the time and was pushing that site to get business. It was my goal to get new clients to start there and create an account at the CRM I was using at the time. Telling them to google webguy and see me on page 1 helped demonstrate what I could do for them. My business cards had "Google Me" on them. I'm still there sort of...I am still on page 1 for Bo the Webguy and other webguy terms, but

I didn't blog once at WA in 2019. I apologize to those referrals of mine for not being active at Wealthy Affiliate in the community, but I'm still here after 7 plus years. I found this site in 2012 and went through the first lesson of the training as a free trial. I decided to upgrade and have never regretted it. The Premium Upgrade is well worth the money. I Get Paid to Stay HEREWhile I am no where close to being one of the top earners here at WA, I still make more than the subscription fees f

Most Reviews that seem somewhat legit on yelp are negative. Most of the long wordy reviews bashing the company are simply used to try to extort money from the company. I don't know why Yelp allows this unless they are in on the scam or another scam.... actually I am pretty sure YELP is not unbiased when it comes to advertisers and non-advertisers. Negative reviews probably get them clients much like the sites rip off report and others. I know a company has to make money but it it seems pretty

Shown below is an email I just received. With the number of websites I have built over the years and managed, it is a wonder that I don't get a lot more of them. I used to respond to people like this just see what they would come back, but with all the spam I get... a response would most likely open me up to even more junk email.For those that are just starting out with a new website, you need to watch out for these type emails. If you are doing a website for a client, be sure to let them know

I just realized that I haven't blogged at WA in over a year. I should be more active here and I am sure I have written something similar to this post before. I am still a member here and have no plans to ever leave. It would cost me money to leave at this point. Thanks Kyle and Carson for that payment every month. I still get excited on the 1st of every month.There are a lot of ways to make money with the Internet and the training here at Wealthy Affiliate is invaluable. I need to take some tim

Facebook changed the layout of pages yesterday, Wednesday August 3rd.At least, I think it was yesterday. I am okay with the layout changes, some things are improved. I think it was done to force more advertising since the promotion block is even more prominent on the pages you admin. Also, be very careful with political posts... like it or not, FB is censoring posts and shares. It has been reported by a lot of sources and I have seen firsthand what they are doing to friends and associates of mi

The Pokemon Go app was released on July 6th, 2016 to the US. On that day, it has been reported that there were 200,000 downloads.The download count is in the tens of millions now and Nintendo's stock has soared. They are making a lot of money with in store app purchasers from players trying to catch more characters to businesses that are trying to lure players. I wonder how many $99 packs of PokeCoins have been purchased in the last 12 days. Bloggers everywhere are rushing to get articles writt

I just an article about a court offering an opinion on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). It is generating a ton of buzz about sharing passwords for the purpose of accessing information that you are not allowed to access. It says sharing your passwords to netflix or hbogo could result in prosecution.This application seems to be pretty petty, but it does make you think and may make some of us worry. Would it apply to people that live in the same household? What about your kids at colle
