We’re slackers around here. Mostly Steve, but me too. When it comes to pointing out other excellent sites and blogs that could help you in your goal of making money using the Internet, we could do a lot better. As you already know if you’ve been searching very long for ways to supplement your income, there is a lot to learn about the ‘Net and income. Yes, it can be done. But you want to lose as little flesh and blood as possible while you’re learning the ropes.
Fortunately there’s a lot of great information out there to answer the need to learn the ropes. We’re going to try to do a better job of pointing you to it rather than just recommending the occasional good program or strategy.
We’ve been reading IttyBiz (“Work from home tips to help you stay sane”) for some time now. If you would like to learn how to make money online using your blog or other site, IttyBiz is required reading. It offers a dose of humanity, irreverence, and knowledgeable advice that is refreshing and unique to our slime-ridden niche. Take a sip:
The only thing I really hope to accomplish with this post is this: If you feel shitty, you’re not alone. If you feel like, now that you’ve got your itty bitty business off the ground, you’re furious with yourself for not skipping with glee every moment, it’s not just you. If you feel like nobody on the goddamn planet understands what you’re going through, at least I do. If you feel like, now that you’re at home full time, you should provide your children with home-cooked meals and wash the sheets every other day and only show quality, commercial-free programming on your television and have sex with your husband six nights a week and have a floor that’s more carpet than ground-up-Cheerio, you’re not the only one.
Naomi, who runs IttyBiz (and works topless, apparently) has written an ebook called SEO School:How to Become an SEO Ninja. If you don’t know what SEO means, you will. It’s one of the keys to successfully using your blog or site to make money. And since you have to learn it, you might as learn it from someone who’s funny and works topless. I’m going to buy a copy as soon as I figure out when I’ll read it.
Head on over and subscribe, tuition free. It’s as raucous and educational as college, but without the stupid spirit song.
