what is one piece of advice youd give me?
what is your greatest struggle?
Well, it’s been nearly a month since my last post. Indeed quite a few things have changed. At that point I was living in Boulder, packing for the new adventure. Now, it is upon me. Life has changed from a familiar routine to killing time in between climbing trips. The stress level is basically zero. The only concerns are finances. Seeing how long I can ride this wave. Living in the back of my truck. I’m staying outside a friend’s apartment and spend most of my time there. Lot’s of time watching Andrew play Final Fantasy XIII. Time melts away. Browse Reddit to the boredom, laugh at the people who “waste time at work”. I don’t really have anything better to do at this point (too hot to climb right now). Jeremy’s learning chess. Killing time in between matches. He usually wins. Time melts away. Ice cream cake at a late afternoon BBQ. Days and weeks and hours are irrelevant. The sun wakes me in the morning. Too warm to sleep, time to go inside. It’s 7AM. It doesn’t matter. There are no pressing emails, there is no urgency. It’s been 3 weeks. It could have been years.
I find myself wanting to work. I want a project. Something to pay attention too. Fortunately, I have my business. Something I’ve been somewhat neglecting since leaving. Guess, I’m going to build another site. I’ll check Facebook real quick. Nope, still nothing. Waiting for site metrics to update. Back to building a site. Gotta go through the first steps. Figure out a niche. Something people are actively searching for, something without a ton of competition, something that’s kinda pricey. Probably bikes of some sort. Still much work to do. Narrow the idea to something a little better. Bikes is way too broad. Bicycles. Mountain? Road? Vintage Frames? Probably all, but have to go do the keyword research first. Since the new updates, it seems like domains containing a keyword are less valuable now. Seems like you can get away with a well optimized, but non-keyword related domain. Optimize the rest of the site and Googs will rank you better. Time to brainstorm. I’m hitting publish before I get too sidetracked to finish.
Hi Mr. Guaranteed Income For Life, can I call you Guary for short? Well, Guary, it was a great surprise that you found my site so quickly, and I appreciate all of your kind words:
Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the web the simplest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as folks think about issues that they plainly don’t recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks.
I glad that you understand my annoyance. It’s hard for people to plainly not recognise about. But, please take solace that there are others who do and are capable of recognising. They, better. I hope you will pass my article on to one of your friends who might better recognise. If they do not I would fear the side effect that may befall them. Hopefully, it won’t be anything more than a rash, but sometimes there is a problem with anal leakage…just like olestra. If they have blurry vision or their erections last more than 4 hours, please do advice to attend need of medial professions of which many do note as of they can are. You’re welcome.
I desire you up-to-date your blog significantly more often, I just cannot seem to be to acquire adequate of your blog.
Wow, Dana, thank you. I really appreciate the feedback. It’s nice to see that I may have a successful following to this blog. It blows me away that my writing has filled you with desire. I will definitely try to “up-to-date” it more significantly. Hopefully, after my second post you might be able to acquire some adequate of it, though you must tell me where one comes to acquire adequate. Can I pick it up at Target or do you think I can get some on Craigslist for cheaper.
After a long haitus from Internet Marketing, I’m bringing back the Mean Giant blog. I’ve always said you should never trust a marketer (or pretty much anyone these days) who doesn’t have a website. It’s just far too simple to get something decent up…see current site. It’s decent, not my nice pretty ideal, but it’s up and it only took a matter of moments. I’m probably not the only on that feels this, way but it has just been a pain trying to convince myself to work on personal branding. At this point, I spend more time trying to scale my small network of sites and have been justifying my lack of decent online presence by saying “I have more important stuff to do. Stuff that will make me money.”
Welp, it’s bothered me for too long, so now I’m making an attempt at it. Finally got a twitter account…yeah, why do I want this again? Updated LinkedIn. It had been a long time since I logged into that site. It’s changed some, but is still pretty much the same. Gotta up the cheese factor on that profile. Catchy Marketing Headlines!!! And, I guess it’s time to actually start writing. Back to work.
