Watching her make a Y incision.
Last Update: Mar 14, 2014
I much rather attempt the time honored practice of body piercing and maybe some old fashion prison tattooing, with my left hand, unassisted, than go through another tutorial. The whole business is complicated past endurance and I'm just too lazy to go through it.
I'm not really lazy, is just that this stuff bores me to the point I want to take up arms and go on some sort of protest, anything to kill the monotony of it all. I have to say it isn't the fault of the writers, they do an excellent job of presenting the material. The sheer amount of information these two luminaries, Kyle and Carson, have gathered on internet marketing will make anything that you might accumulate on your own lost far under a deep impenetrable shadow.
This internet marketing voodoo is not something one would call an excelsior undertaking. This thing takes time, takes effort, what I have heard others call: hard work; a notion that I've excelled at avoiding throughout my life (I suppose I just admitted at being a tad lazy). I much rather read novels; at this point I'll even try romance novels, the kind of tales that feature throbbing manhoods and heaving bosoms, but I can't. I shouldn't procrastinate any longer, I have to get to work.
I lack motivation. Money is not enough. Why can't I just write articles for a living? I'll take a small office in a dusty old basement, with heating pipes across the ceiling and faded, full of lead, pre-seventies green paint, a la Fox Mulder. Oh my God, throw in a Scully of my very own, and I'll do it, I swear I will. She doesn't even have to be a redhead, although I wouldn't mind watching her make a Y incision every other blue moon, I wouldn't mind that at all.
I've had another writing project these past couple of weeks that's kept me busy . A project which I first started as a way of justifying to myself the absence of completing the Wealthy Affiliate course. It quickly became very enjoyable and serious, and I'm going to give it eighteen months till completion. Sadly this new project provides me absolutely no comfort when it comes to the realization that I, whether I like it or not, need money. My children need stuff, not only today but tomorrow, too. I have to secure an additional source of income. I guess the promise of money is enough, thankfully I have you all for support.
always great value, always a chuckle and getting even more so on both counts.
I love the way that you put more thought, effort and consideration into pointing out that you don't think, try or give a toss- brilliant.
Love it. Andy
Thanks Andy, I knew you would like it. I have to admit I had a lot of fun while I wrote. I was stuck at the hospital lobby waiting for Dr. Miller to get off his ever expanding ass and give me the package he was sending (I am in the transportation business, you know). I wrote the first draft and when I got home slightly cleaned it up and posted it.
Does it show that I had fun with it?
We all feel this way sometimes, just have to buckle down and do it.
Longshot ties himself to the chair and gets to work. oh man, I shouldn't have had all that coffee!!!
I can relate...sometimes, I feel like this myself. But, it will pass and you will move past it. You are not alone. I enjoyed your blog. I used to love the XFiles myself. *smile*
Thanks Melanie, wasn't the x-files all sorts of fun? I miss it sometimes but I don't think I can go through that rabbit hole again, it is too demanding.
I know sometime my computer wouldn let my finger hit the turn on button i rather just want to relax 3 days ago i bought a new and was so happy that i sit up to late. Here 2 days latter i have just done minimum yesterday and to day
Waiting for it and striving towards it makes all that more enjoyable and satisfying. Well done, budd :)
Hi there Longshot, I wrote an article for Iwrite yesterday, took about an hour, I then realized that I done it wrong and all to get $2.40 LOL. I have been tipped off about something called cafe press which looks promising. The Iwrite might be worth joining just to advertise it on your site with an affiliate link, so you can make a commission through people joining, that's what the links on my site are, so I'm putting the writing on the back burner, I've got a 500 word article on the transistor radio LOL what can I do with it. If I were you I'd join just to get the affiliate link, its just another pie to stick your thumb in.
Anyway this Cafe press looks interesting, I'll find out some more, see you later.
Thanks, Archan. I will keep it in mind although I think that I will listen to Pat about letting the designing aspects fall in place little by little as I build content and hopefully a following.
Thanks again for the great advice.
So sorry you feel this way! Hope your new writing project earns you enough money so that you will not have to do much else. Have you taken a look at http://www.bubblews.com ?
Trialynn, I was just being overly dramatic. Is not the writing that's holding me back, or that the steps are too complicated, I lack motivation of getting over that learning arc and truthfully that is unacceptable.
Thanks for the heads up about Bubblews, place looks pretty cool.
Good luck on this new writing project. I know you will strike a balance between completing it and also adding content to your website. If you are having this much trouble writing for your website, perhaps you have picked the wrong niche. Is that a possibility? I do enjoy your writing style, so I know when you get that website up and running, it will be a joy to read.
Is the whole messing about setting the website going that is killing me, not the content. The choosing of a theme, the plugins, etc.
You are hung up on making it perfect from the get go! Pick a simple theme. You can always change it later if you decide you don't like it. don't worry about plugins until you need them. Your Wordpress will come with 3 or 4 already there. Start out with them. When you need another one, that's the time to go get it. Don't let these things hold you back from beginning to add content and building up a following. I've discovered it's really better to get a strong following before you start trying to put ads on the pages. I think I tried to monetize too soon.
Use the KISS technique...Keep It Simple Silly! (I choose not to use the word stupid as the original KISS used!) You will feel so much better when you see your clever articles on your own site and have people responding to them. You are going to be a winner! Go for it!
You know, maybe you should consider motivational speaker not as a niche but as a career. I will do as you ask, because I know is good for me and mine. The adventures of Jack and Celeste can wait or I can do it simultaneously, it would certainly keep me out of trouble.
Thank God I'm not Russian, otherwise by this time I'd be drunk and completely suicidal.
Here's a longshot on my website

You can do it. Great writing, I love your style ;)
Years and years of reading what rubbish I could find are proving to have not been wasted. I cannot come up with a proper combination of words to express just how alike ambrosia to my soul is to hear that my style is appreciated.
Thank you very much, Karyskis.
Ditto Kary... love your writing style... totally engaging!
Hey Kary, you've found a fan in Doubletap!!!
