Announcing: BEing The Titus Concept

8 Sep

You may remember a few weeks ago when I wrote that I had finished a book cover for a clients forthcoming book. That book is – – BEing The Titus Concept by my good friend and mentor, Al Diaz.

The cover is now up on his website and a free eBook sample is available for download. Please take a look at Al’s website, download the book and begin changing your life.

You DESERVE it!

Rant: Partial Feeds

6 Sep

Ok – here’s my currant rant – partial feeds. I hate partial feeds! It’s annoying. I mean, I use a feed reader to make it easier and faster to read all the blogs I love and enjoy. But ya know, when you only offer a partial feed, I have to break my momentum to go to your page and finish reading.

Small annoyance? Hardly. My time is just as valuable as yours. If you’re going to take the time to write the blasted thing, have some respect for my time too and allow full feeds.

Really. It’s gotten to be that I’m deleting feeds from my Bloglines because even though I love the blogs, I just can’t take a bunch of extra time to go surfing all over the place to read them. That *IS* why I use a feed reader to begin with – to save time so I can read all the blogs I like. Not just yours.

So – please. Do your readers a favor and allow full blog feeds so those using a reader can be as efficient as they need to be. I doubt you’ll lose any readers over it.

But I bet you WILL lose readers over partial feeds. Like me.

I’ll post more later, but briefly, here are 5 ways to create products of your own:

• Write a workbook or study guide using a public domain resource
• Get others to write an eBook for you
• Use interviews to write an eBook
• Use search engines to write an eBook
• Use lists to write an eBook

Check back soon for an in-depth discussion of each.

Please Support Our Troops

3 Sep

I apologize for doing two posts like this in a row, but . . . this is another thing that’s close to my heart –

My cousins husband is a US Marine Corporal who is getting ready to leave for his 2nd tour in the Middle East. As a former Navy gal who served during Operation Desert Storm in the ’90’s, this one brings it home for me again. Eddie will be gone for 9 months or so this time and when he returns, he’ll be finished with his military career – he’s decided not to re-enlist.

Please keep my cousin and her husband in your thoughts and prayers – as well as all of our troops. They are both just young kids – they’re in their early 20’s – not even yet 25. They’ve only been married a year and a half and half of that, Eddie spent on his first tour.

Listen – you don’t have to believe the war is right or just. I sure don’t. Whatever you believe, please know these guys and gals are putting their lives on the line for YOU. And believe it or not, a good many of them don’t believe the war is right, either. But this is their JOB, their duty and they do it with fear and precision, with love and with honor. They do it with pride in American dream, the sense of freedom our forefather fought for so long ago. Don’t let them fight in vain. Please support the troops regardless of what you personally think about Bush and his war. (And that’s all I will say on this subject.)

And – Happy Labor Day to everyone in the US.

Quicksilver

30 Aug

This is not what I intended to write about today, but I just had to share another cool tool – Quicksilver. Now, if you’re not on a Mac, this will mean nothing to you but read on anyway. 😉

I have had Quicksilver installed for months but never really knew how to use it. Just hadn’t had the time to figure it out or look at any tutorials for it. Anyway – I saw Ed use it a week or so during one of the 30dc videos and thought I really should learn how to use it.

Well, let me tell you – it’s really cool. I can find any THING on my computer, launch any program on my hard drive with just a few keystrokes. Very cool.

Here is a good intro video – enjoy!

And if you want to learn even more, here are two good websites –

30dc Revelation

28 Aug

I just had a sudden revelation –

For the last few years, I’ve bought dozens of online products – all sitting here on my hard drive – and I’ve never really known what to do with them.

And some of the “free” products I received as part of some package I always thought were kinda cheesy. Well, as I’m sitting here looking for additional niches, I’ve come across a good half a page of possible niches that I already own products for! I had no interest in those “cheesy” topics, but apparently, I’m alone in that thought. Because most of these key phrases have upwards of 300 hits per day according to GTrends and have less than 30k competing sites.

Hmmm . . . I’m so excited, I might just stay up half the night and work on them. I really want to see everything I’ve been doing all month come together.

And congrats to all the people out there who have made their $10 or more. I heard it’s official there has been a $700+ dollar sale and a $7,000 sale! WOW! That rocks!

Now . . . it’s MY TURN! 🙂

Review: Tumbled, the Theme

28 Aug

Last week another Challenger, Davinian, created a WP theme based on the Box theme over at Tumblr. It’s really quite nice. I set it up on my real estate website and once I have some content up there, I’ll share that link with you.

So far, I enjoy the theme and today Davinian posted that some more Web 2.0 type updates might be in order. I think that’s pretty cool as having video, photo and other options would add a lot of diversity to the theme.

You can check out Tumbled at Davinian’s website.
