Over the years my blog has taken on my faces, and while I would love to come on here everyday to write something of value, comedy, and good fun the time just is not available to me. Over the past few weeks I have begun doing work with PPC marketing, launched 2 new websites, working on 3 more, and whats worse is that I am taking a small vacation starting tomorrow and ending Sunday. So what does all this mean? Well for starters I do not have any immediate plans to take this blog and really work with it to turn it into the blog that I know it can be. I am doing this for a variety of reasons, but the main one is the income issue that is associated with blogs.
If you were to look around the internet you would see hundreds of millions of blogs. Some of these are spam, but for the most part many people blog with intentions of somehow turning a profit in the shorter rather than the longer term. The fact of the matter however is that most blogs (including this one) make $0, in fact most of them lose money due to hosting and other maintenance costs. So why do so many people blog? Well I think people blog for a variety of reasons, but outside of making money I would say the main reason people blog is to gain notice, fame, and whatever else they think can come from blogging. For every 1 Perez Hilton, Shoemoney, John Chow, Huffington etc. their are literally millions of starving bloggers. Thats not a battle I want to fight, and while I do plan on someday turning this blog into something it will not be until after I have most projects on auto pilot and I can devote more time to an audience.
With all that being said what else is new? Well for starters I recently purchased one of those as seen on tv products for my dog. Did you guess it? Yes its the Snuggie for Dogs 🙂 I have a real soft spot for my dog lizzy, and anyone who knows me could tell you that Liz is the champ. Her birthday however is not for a while so I figure I will just give it to her when it arrives in the mail 🙂
Other than that, I look to have some fun on this upcoming vacation, you can always use a few “days off” though I put it in quotes for a reason (ill have my macbook pro, iPad and iPhone ready to work on whatever comes up while abroad).
Thats all for now, ill see you in 6 months for another update 😛
