I have put together a small collection of writings from other bloggers. These writings are stated to be the most honest thing they have ever published about themselves. These writing run the gamut from work troubles to mental illness, and they all took making an admission to their selves and or loved ones.
In just a few minutes on Facebook you will find a hundred people willing to give you advice and help you get started. You will find free e-books, articles, and newsletters. You will be invited to join groups and sign up for mailing lists. Everyone will have your best interests at heart, and genuinely want to help.
The sharks begin to circle the fresh fish, they smell blood in the water.
My goal is to get rich while sharing my writing with the world. My new goal is to list all of the problems with that last goal.
A little over a decade ago, I finally succumbed to peer pressure and created a Myspace page. My friends had been on my ass for quite a while. They said things like “you live to far away now”, and “we never see you anymore”. So I did. And I regretted every minute of it.
Hopefully you read my introduction and you know what’s going on. If you haven’t the short of it is, I am trying to start a web based career, and I am letting you in on all of my secrets as I go.
Ok, so here we go. I have no secrets. I also have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve read some books and I’m taking some online courses, both of which we will get into later, and everything else is seat of my pants business planning. Which isn’t to say that I don’t have a plan. I think I have a great vision, but I’m sure everyone thinks that their idea is just the best idea ever conceived. I also have no idea how to get to the end goal. I know exactly where I want to be, but I don’t have a GPS, or even a map, and I keep getting lost along the way. It’s like following the yellow brick road, only a tornado has come through and scattered the bricks all over, and I’m hopscotching across the path with no idea if I’m going the right way or taking the steps in the correct order. But I guess that’s the joy of this Blog. You may learn what to do, and what not to do. You may also be thoroughly entertained as I fall flat on my ass. Together we will learn what works and what doesn’t.
As I said I have a great plan, at least what I believe to be a great plan. I’m not going to tell you what it is. Well, not yet anyway…..
