Yosemite Sam Marketing

Because many people don’t believe I can write a short post… this one is short… for me. Let’s see what happens…

If you don’t know who Yosemite Sam is, you’ve been living under a rock or on a volcanic island. Yosemite Sam was the 20th century’s greatest marketer.

I say that because he always knew how to get a new job (when he wasn’t trying to take your money forcefully), always knew how to promote himself, was loyal to whatever organization he happened to be shilling for at the time (even if it was just him), had ultimate self confidence, and by being loud and obnoxious he was able to promote others by extension, even when that might not have been his ultimate goal.

Personality – Gauging Between Too Much And Too Little

If you’re going to be a blogger you need to know what you’re up against. That’s why I’m repurposing this article and keeping some of the original comments because they’re really good and shows their personalities well.

There are over 440 million blogs in the world and it’s growing exponentially every year. The best thing about it is that there are a lot of people who decide they’re tired of blogging and bail out of the game. The worst thing about it is that you still end up with a lot of people you have to compete with for attention.

The Buy Me A Coffee/Pizza Problem

Last May I wrote an article about my signing up on a website called Buy Me A Coffee. I mentioned that it was a way for creators to earn some money by allowing people who consume their content to give them a payment if they liked what they’d consumed. I got a little bit of money from a couple of videos and one from an article I wrote. I changed from coffee to pizza because I don’t drink coffee, but it turned out I couldn’t get the plugin to work showing pizza, which is why that funny looking ball is around the bottom right of all my articles.

That’s about the size of it

I’m not gonna lie; I thought this would be a panacea for getting paid for some of my work. I had a similar thing I ran for years on this blog that was attached to PayPal. I can’t remember when I removed it or why I removed it, but for all the years I had it on this blog I only got one $5 payment; thanks to whoever that was. 🙂

5 Reasons Your Blog Is Definitely About You

Some of you may remember Marcus Sheridan when he was just a guy who owned an outdoor pool company and wrote a blog called The Sales Lion. I loved reading his blog, I loved the way he wrote, and in general I loved the way he thinks; still do.

One of those things most of us who’ve been around a long time (too long for some lol) will eventually see is something we disagree with, even if it’s a relatively small thing. One of those things I sometimes advocate for new bloggers is that if you see something that sparks a thought in your mind, whether you agree with it or not, it’s pretty good inspiration to respond to it; that’s exactly what I did when I came across something I disagreed with, and I’m sharing it with you because, in the long run, you might take the point of this post and use it for your own potential long term success.

14th Anniversary Of I’m Just Sharing

Well, who saw this coming? Today marks the 14th anniversary of blogging on this site, and I’m astounded it’s lasted this long. True, my business blog’s been around longer, but there’s fewer articles there and I’ve received way less views and comments there… probably because of the main topic, leadership.

The first image I ever put on this blog; I can’t
remember where it’s from lol

There’s three things funny about the day I started blogging here. The first is that I only wrote one paragraph for the first article, introducing myself to the world. The second is that the topic I said I was going to address on the blog not only wasn’t the first one following it but that I wrote 3 articles on the same day, and the 3rd one, which is now private, was an example of what I thought I’d be writing about.
