Best Of The Week – Make Money Blogs

Man, it’s Saturday already. Even worse, it’s Saturday evening. I slept till almost noon today. What? Yea, I went to bed around 2 am last night and woke up around noon. Weird for me yes, that is about 6 more hours than I normally sleep. I believe since the metabolism is slowing down (obvious because of my weight gain) it is having an effect on my insomnia. Extra rest couldn’t hurt I guess. Anyway, here are some interesting things I caught throughout the week.

First thing I saw was the Shoemoney had PRK Laser Eye Surgeryand is recovering. It looks like he is doing well from his video. Shoemoney is definitely a character. There are tons of mixed reviews about the guy throughout all the forums on the net, but the fact remains, I have an enormous amount of respect for him and enjoy stopping by his blog everyday to see what he is up to.

I caught a great post on Courtney Tuttle – Before You Sell Your Blog where Courtney talks in detail about the ramifications and why it would not be a good idea to sell your blogs. I thought the summary “Time is your friend. Starting over is your enemy” was pretty cool. I don’t know much about Courtney but I found the blog via 45n5 and have bookmarked it and added the feed to my reader. So far it looks and feels like a great place to extend my reach and learn some more as I continue my businesses online.

Chris Jacobson has a cool post where he outlines his secret Internet Marketing resource. It’s no secret that I have been a member of the Rich Jerk Forum for awhile. I have never read the book completely but have found the forum as one of the most valuable resources on the web. The forum is where the gold is. Chris went so far as to even post a video I recorded for Youtube about why you should join and some benefits and the type of people your likely to meet. Now I should say that I have indeed left the forum, (personal reasons) as I launch my two companies at the first of the year I am in need of utilizing my time a little more towards building the foundations of the two companies I am about to start, but this should not take away the fact that the forum rocks and the people over there are some of the most successful and down to earth people you will ever meet.

I happened to catch Andrew Wee with another Friday Podcast The Social Marketing Identity Crisis. Andrew always provides useful podcasts and this one is just another great reason why I look forward to every post he puts out there. I have made it a point to start showing my face at some of the Internet Marketing events this year and he don’t know it yet, but I am going to try and meet the guy.

I also happened to bounce over to the CPA Affiliates blog as well. I got a post titled What it takes to make it BIG in online marketing. As I read thru it I found myself harping on the things I do right according to the post and things I do wrong. I find that I don’t network enough. I am very private in who I look to work with on my projects, but I need to open up a bit more I feel like. I think the biggest problem for me is that people are asking me questions and I never have enough time to go and seek people who might have answers to MY questions. Instead of putting it off or spending time researching it myself, I should probably go introduce myself and see what comes about.

Well, that’s it for this week. With the holidays everyone seem to take a break and that’s good. I did happen to catch some good reading around the web anyway so hope you enjoy.

Hey thanks for the article Ratman…It’s dead on. It is the exact same thing I have been hearing for years. Unfortunately since I work from a computer and am not throwing boxes, loading trucks or roofing houses anymore, I have definitely lost that every day physical workout.

It’s hard to get sleep when you have a doctor’s prescription for pills that are supposed to help with this. My fiance has definitely put the hammer down on pop, sweets and junk food.

Ironically since cutting that stuff out, I am sleeping better. LOL, who would have thought right?

I love weekly roundup posts. I think this is the growing trend in blogging to highlight some really interesting posts from other bloggers in order to establish authority and some links from those bloggers.
