A little of this and a bit more

Alan Crawford presents twisted short and some longer stories for adults, with quite a number of his rants and observations as well.

Several curious people, really it’s just one, asked me how or where the ideas came from. Thankfully there’s no clear answer. When the trousers, mind, or weather conditions suit such things, the computer opens, a page appears, and it starts to flow. All designed to promote my nonsense, which may be adult in nature but not necessarily mature.

Full time career

Reading Time: 2 minutesNo way could I foresee what a huge impact on my life this bucking bronco tbaoo would be. It’s amazing, i’m tracking, stalking, harassing, haranguing, bothering and being very friendly with a wallet load of people across the blogging universe. It’s all good stuff, I’ve made ( and will continue to make ) new online friends, people who also share a heavy workload in spreading the word. In my case the word is tbaoo and it’s nearly a full time career.

Their words are different of course, not puerile like mine, or as silly, but important, poetic, relevant, insightful, caring and informative. Mine are just plain nonsense, unless I get serious – well you’d better look out when i’m serious, it might be hard for you dear reader to tell, but don’t worry that much, normally i’ll tell you up front.

The one thing I’ve found is that you only get back what you put out. True in all walks of life, but in this blogging universe, you really have to: join any forum you find ( that connects with your aims ) be nice, don’t be too rude, keep up with posts, comments, feedback and sign up for facebook, twitter, myspace etc .. shit join everything, just sign up. Spread your url as far and wide as possible.

When you look at your Adsense revenue, don’t despair, even though you might make some bucks out of it, it’s more than, likely that you’ll not make any money. If you just post keywords, or a lesson on how to make a million dollars through Google, SEO, or some such other beat up, you may, but really who wants to read a keyword packed load of rubbish that’s more than likely misspelt and dodgy’d up language. See here, the feedback was amazing, but it was just a list.

There are some very good online ebooks, forums posts and information about so I recommend you to look at few and you’ll soon realise what is what. I’ve found lately that I need to devote at least 1/2 hour each day to keep up with posts, comments etc and i’m not really doing it enough, but the secret is to do what you can, when you can and remember that it’s meant to be fun. If it’s a job well that’s a whole different story, one that I can’t tell you, because I don’t know.

How and what time will you accept that your blog is not making any good? that traffic was nowhere to be found? do you have to change topic? change site? or just stop. Thanks for sharing this info to me.

I recommended a book about Facebook strategies of making billions in revenue… I highlighted the title of the book and to my surprise, it earned so many clicks for that matter alone. | 😛

I spend my days working with clients on social networking strategies to brand and grow their businesses, and I come here and write my blog to get away…a paradox I suppose, but I enjoy the company of my blogging friends and it is a hobby 🙂

I remembered few months ago, I recommended a book about facebook strategies of making billions in revenue… I highlighted the title of the book and to my surprise, it earned so many clicks for that matter alone. I don't usually get clicks from amazon ads but that topic had turned everything around… You had made some good advice here Alan. I just started to realized that too.:)
