Twitter; The Mistakes People Make

Twitter is my favorite social media platform after blogging. Believe it or not, I actually try to talk to every one of the 4,500 plus people following me every once in a while, though not as many talk back. I’m also back under 1,000, which I reached for the first time in 2014, and back around 860; that’s what happens when society changes and you learn more about some of the people you’re following and decide it’s time to remove them from your online life. With just over 187,000 tweets over the course of almost 14 years, I like to think I know a thing or two about Twitter.

There are a lot of people who don’t quite get the nuances of Twitter. Many of them are following way more people than I am, and have a lot more people following them. But is they effective? Are they enjoying Twitter as much as I do? Are they communicating or just putting out a lot of noise? Is there a balance between promoting their content, sharing other people’s content, and actually talking to people from time to time? Some are, some aren’t, and some are just irritating… you know it’s true.

I’m Blocking All Gmail Comments!

How’s that for a title? It’s true; I’m done; and now I’m going to explain why in what might be the shortest article I’ve written since 2008.

Blocked; no more… over it!

I hate spam passionately; I know I’m not the only one. I’ve used lots of tools over the years, trying to eradicate spam, but this blog’s been around a long time, and though it’s not regular visitor positive as it once was, it’s very popular to spammers and scammers.

I Know Nothing About Affiliate Marketing

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about affiliate marketing, something I’ve been a part of for at least 15 years by now, and wondering “what the heck am I doing wrong?” I’ve made few affiliate sales over the years, but at least I can say I’ve made some. I guess that puts me ahead of a few people, but so many others are really rocking the industry. Then, after thinking about it some more, I realized one very interesting fact; I know nothing about affiliate marketing!

Going Crazy by Frédéric Dupont

That’s a very disconcerting thing to come to, and though it’s probably over the top, truth be told I’ve been looking for answers for a long time. I’ve read a lot of stuff; I’ve tried a lot of stuff. All you need to do is look over there to the right and you’ll see I’ve been doing something for all these years, but with only one sale in all of 2021 I think we can all say I’m an affiliate marketing failure.

11 Reasons You Don’t Want To Be Diabetic

Time for another repurposed post, which I originally wrote back in February 2011. It was one of my post popular articles at the time, and for a pretty good reason if you ask me. I’ve left a few comments because their sites are still active, but since this articles originally had nearly 60 comments on it, see what’s left and that tells you about the rate that people have left blogging… while others have taken their place. Now, let’s talk about… diabetes…

Diabetes is the fastest growing disease in the world today. It’s considered as a somewhat controllable disease for the majority of people because if most people could control their weight and live a healthier lifestyle they have a chance to stave it off altogether, or at least reduce their reliance on things such as medications.

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.

Yosemite_Sam

 

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.
