How And What To Outsource

You may be looking to outsource some of the work related to your online business once it expands. I strongly recommend that if you’re just starting out, do everything yourself.

Write articles and share your passion and knowledge with other people, build links yourself by submitting articles, looking for link exchanges and using other link building strategies, and do all the other work related to your site, like setting up a newsletter, setting up an RSS feed and so on.

If you follow this process for a year or so, you’ll most likely start earning some money which you can then use to buy yourself more time.

In my opinion, there is almost an unlimited amount of money we can earn in our life, but only limited time that we’ll be here.

That’s why time is more precious than money and I use money to buy myself more time to do what I wish and not what I have to.

That’s where outsourcing comes in. What can you outsource? Read more

Worried About the Competition Online?

I recently chatted with a friend through Gmail, and she was slightly worried.

She was building a site in a certain niche and found out that other people were building their sites on the same concept. She used SBI and actually found a couple of SBI-ers building their site in the exact same niche.

Should I continue? Do I stand a chance now that even someone using an SBI system is going for this niche?

A Must Read For Every Blogger

If you have a blog and your goal is to make money with it, then read on…

Ken Evoy, the CEO of Sitesell.com has recently posted a new page which explains, in detail, why blogging is not the best way to build a successful online business.

I suggest that you head over to the Blog or Build page, prepare yourself a drink and read the full page. It’s long page so take your time…

(And if you are using WordPress as your blogging platform, don’t skip the »Nitty Gritty WordPress vs. SBI! Comparison«!)

Back already? ;)

Let me share my experience with content sites and blogs (especially this one) and explain when you should use each one.

The Longest Useful Comment I Ever Got

Today I received the longest unique, useful comment ever on my tennis blog.

Scroll down on this page:

Pete Sampras Vs Roger Federer – Who Wins?

And you’ll find a comment from Jeffrey which is 1494 words long!

That’s not a comment, those are 2 or even 3 articles! ;) And Jeffrey’s English is excellent too.

There are a couple of long comments on this blog too and I want to thank all those that contribute!

So what was the longest comment you got on one of your blogs? (Feel free to post a link to your post with the longest comment!)

My Definition Of Success

I am writing this post on my Caribbean cruise on Freedom Of The Seas ship. Today I met many SBI-ers and Ken Evoy was the first to give an opening speech.

One thing that he asked everyone to do is to define success.

So here’s my version:

You are successful when you have reached the limit of your potential.

This is of course totally independent of everyone else.

And the most important thing to keep in mind is that we are all limited.

We are limited in our IQ, in our communication skills, in our ability to decide, in our ability to stay focused on a certain task and so on.

Some of this abilities or skills can be improved with practice and some cannot.

Bloggers Head To Head

I just learned of an fun contest between Tyler Cruz and Gyutae Park who are going head to head on who is the better blogger.

Actually the contest is about getting more RSS subscribers, more traffic and so on.

So it’s up to us to vote for one of them.

Well, I vote for Gyutae Park for two reasons:

1. The posts on WinningTheWeb are more useful to my interests. And I also liked the cutely disguised Adsense ad in the header.

You guys are so creative when it comes to making money with Adsense, I give you that. ;)

2. Gyutae Park actually emailed me (although I know the main part of the email was copy / paste ;) ) and I asked for my support.

So there you have it. You got my vote.

Why I Don’t Follow

Well, I never followed “the herd,” but this is not really about following other people – it’s about the “do-follow” movement that’s becoming quite popular.

I recently came across some posts and groups discussing the pros and cons of having a do-follow plug-in installed on a WordPress blog that passes the pagerank to the commenter’s blog.

Here’s Sarah’s take on “no-follow, do-follow” and here’s what Deron Sizemore posted about his thoughts on the do-follow links.

You may also want to check what Darren Rowse had to say in the comments of the latter post.

Christmas Links To 12 Blogs

I received a Christmas link today and would like to share 12 more links to other websites.

Here’s how the game goes:

1. Each day until Christmas link to 12 blogs. (different ones each day)

2. Hopefully the spirit of Christmas will create many helpful links from blogger to blogger.

3. Pay it forward if you receive a link from someone sharing the 12 links of Christmas.
