Easter, Eggs, and Baskets

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Happy Easter everyone!

With all this talk of eggs and baskets today I couldn’t help but think of all the ever-so-cliche phrase “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”  Well you could… but if your eggs were dollars in the stock market, and your basket a few years back was say, Enron, well you would be screwed.

I’ve gone back this weekend and done a lot of thinking about what i’ve learned, what i’ve done, and what has worked for me.  I’ll be making some posts on the realizations I’ve made, but long story short, diversification is key.  I’ll have more for you tomorrow, but for now have a happy holiday!

Maximizing downtime

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

I’m a big fan of the Get Rich Slowly blog.  The author, J.D., explains to his readers tactics and methods to use to become more frugal and in a safe manner, save more money.  Now this isn’t a get rich quick scheme or a make money blog.  J.D. writes through personal experience as a man climbing out from debt.  One of the most appealing aspects of the blog for me is not only the fact that he offers loads of real world advice (and the occasional recipe) but also it is a blog about personal transformation.  In his case from a man in debt, to a man who is now debt free.

After looking back at a few of my older posts I came across a post nearly a year old questioning the viability of making a name for myself and financial gains through only the web.  Who’s to say?  While I by no means am making the implication that I will live off my online earnings, right now I am very much considering maximizing my current efforts to make money online while searching for a new job.

J.D.’s most recent post prompted me to think of how I can gain the most from my current unemployment, but also I think I should look at this time as a chance for opportunity as well.

No VCM for me?

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Well I had been looking forward to getting into ValueClickMedia, but it appears they’ve denied me twice now.  Funny thing is, I just purchased a site that currently uses VCM.  Maybe I can use the site to get into the network?  For some reason they don’t seem to like  Maybe another support inquiry to them is in store if I don’t hear back in a day or two?

Wish me luck!

Learning, and hopefully earning.

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

I’m back from spring break.  No, nothing too eventful.  Just went to my parent’s place for the week.  Good and relaxing to get  away from school.  I’m currently looking into some affilliate marketing to use on my sites, also setting up a few new sites.  I’ll have updates when I get stuff up and runnning to my liking.  Hopefully I’ll have a few posts made and timestamped this weekend.  Keep an eye out.

Soon as I take care of some required school stuff, I’ll put more of my attentions in this blog.
