While having paid more attention to N95blog than to any other site, I have been busy in the background with some other stuff.
In the past months, I have been monitoring and following a handful of websites that prescribe the “get rich quickly blogging” recipes, as well as the “how to become a getting-rich-while-sleeping-affiliate-search-engine-marketeer lessons” and so on…
Some of them, where only a small entrance-fee was required, I have tested. Others, I subscribed to their email-lists and monitored the daily and weekly emails I have received. As the previous post shows, I even promoted some of them (Within all the different programs, I think that Yaro is doing something that is fairly realistic and honest, although I do not really “feel” the butterfly marketing approach… his blog could suffice as teaching instrument.)
And now after a few months, I am in the position to draw some conclusions and clear my own path…
I have decided to neglect most of these success stories as the programs and the needed effort are only for those that have the possibilities to drop their regular day jobs and dedicated themselves 100% to blogging, affiliate marketing, SEM, SEO, etc.
As I am in no position to do so, and I know many of us are not, I am looking at the possibilities within another time-frame, but more importantly, within another philosophy. A philosophy in which we are not looking at making a killer income overnight, but making a nice side-income within your own and self-created capabilities. Call it the way of the turtle, see it as some “slow food” philosophy for your on- and off-line life, whatever you call it, it encompasses building something that enriches yourself and therefore the yield of whatever you do.
Confused? It is really simple though. Instead following some prescribed butterfly marketing funded step by step program that forces something upon you, I think the only way to excel in something is to define your strengths and passions, to combine and strengthen them and to share your knowledge and powers with others. That will generate criticism and suggestions that will only take you to another level.
With this, I know I am not paving a new path, but it is a more natural and logical way of achieving your goals, or even defining goals in case you did not have clear goals yet.
In order to show off my thoughts and so on this matter I am busy with a new platform that will be ready soon. Keep a close eye on this blog and you will know.
