Don't Listen To The Devil On Your Shoulder!I know what goes on in your mind. You're writing and you think. "Why do I keep doing this? Why am I writing blog after blog?" Then that little red devil with it's pitchfork climbs up on your shoulder and says "Yea. Why are you bothering? Let's go get drunk or let's sit and feel sorry for ourselves. Come on it'll be fun!"The funny thing is we all have that little devil that pops up every now and again and it may be sitting on your shoulder right now. It

My Little ExperimentI tried an experiment with myself lately and that is helping random people when I am out doing stuff. Normally I am somewhat hyper aware and go through task methodically trying not to get distracted by this that and the other. Being a Marine Corps veteran this is something I have struggled with for many years and eventually led me to seek some help and counselling with. I was offered the suggestion to start to help people, not in some huge way but to do something small like

o For those of you who have considered going yearly at Wealthy Affiliate I have to say that in hindsight it is exactly what I should of done. Why do I say this now? Because I am now at a point where my membership is being paid for through my efforts on here. I no longer need to shell out the close to $50.00 a month for my monthly membership. It's a good feeling because for many months I pondered whether or not this whole thing was even going to work. I stuck with it for over two years but now m

I remember years ago as a 17 year old Marine in boot camp in San Diego I came in a shy hesitant young man who had his mind more on surfing than actually earning a living at anything. But I thought I knew it all. I could surf like a rock star, had cool friends and loved hanging out and going to the teeny bop clubs. Bootcamp was a rude awakening with the lights turning on at 0430 in the morning, trashcan lids banging, screaming drill instructors screaming we had five minutes to be dressed and ou

I hear a lot of people saying that outsourcing content is not worth it. And that you should be looking at outsourcing to better writing platforms than say Fiverr.com. But, if you look to Fiverr and do a good search of some blogging and article writers you can still find some gems in the rough. I'm not saying that these writers are top-notch but they can produce a readable article for $5.00 still. As a former Fiverr writer I can say during my time there I produced over 1000 articles for pe

Yesterday I got in touch briefly with my best friend from childhood. Over the years this man had turned into an angry raging alcoholic and I pretty much removed myself from being any where near him about 15 years ago. So, when I saw that he had sent me a message I wanted to see if he had changed. Not to my surprise he hadn't and was talking about how he was always a better surfer and how I had gone to be an East Coast "Kook" (slang in surfing). Basically this is a guy who never grew up and the

Today I am writing my blog for the week. Last week I had a surprise when I woke up and that was a Jaxxy referral and my Premium member also upgraded their account again. I am still working the steps but have due to family things have not written as much as I wanted. With 311 blog posts so far and nine for the month I think I have done pretty good with keeping up.For those who know me I have been a member here going in my third year and have to admit it has been an interesting ride. I have spent

Yesterday I came close to pulling the plug on all of this. I was out fishing at one of my favorite lakes and realized over the past two years I have spent a ton of time working on my websites. I have had minimal success but has it been worth the time I have spent working? Sadly I have to say no. Being retired at an early age I have finally found the time to do what I want to do within my means but instead I chose to work on a website for probly a couple thousand hours so far. I could of spent t

I have been building a boot camp site for two years. And I wanted to throw down some info that may help some newbies who are looking at starting their own boot camp site. While writing content it's really important to include a lot of reviews in their blogs instead of writing general niche content. I say this because I learned the hard way by being stubborn that just writing about certain topics in your niche can actually hurt your progress rather than help it. Case in point. I began my site as

I feel pretty darn fortunate to be accepted in the Super Affiliate program and hope that it's beneficial. My time here for the last two years has been a pretty crazy experience. During this time I have had some personal ups and downs like hitting some serious stumbling blocks. I quit once at about a year in but returned two weeks later. I looked at other programs and always ran into the same old scams and schemes. But once I returned I started asking for help. And that's when things started to
