When In The Course Of Human Events … SOPA / PIPA

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, also the internet; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

I had this idealistic thought back in the middle of 2011 that I would be able to tie up loose ends here at Bloggers Market and move on to the proverbial greener pastures. I like things neat and tidy. That’s what has me in this profession after all …… I rule!

However, the recent debate over the “SOPA / PIPA” legislation has the Internet if not the country up in arms about the government closing the doors on our civil liberties. My sites are down today as I join in the cry for “government for the people; by the people” and the course it takes in this most crucial issue that affects or will affect all Internet users.

When I started down this “Yellow Brick Road” my intention was to earn a living Blogging …… ya know like my sites slogan says’ “Learn How To Make Money Blogging”. I was in no way interested in involving myself with any kind of political fight or other social issues.

When one involves themselves they …… for a lack of a better term; they take sides. And when one takes sides, polarization takes place. Ok, I’ll quit dancing …… they get pissed and they usually get pissed pretty quick!

I’ve been reading dozens of posts Online today from those who have chosen not to take part in said issues and have remained active. As I read one quote from one of the more prominent individuals of our time; I think it was someone over at Twitter, said: “Closing a global business in reaction to single-issue national politics is foolish,” Yeah you keep thinking that way Richard! If you don’t they will! Close you up that is.

I’m with the majority ( At least I think I am ) here of course and join those like-minded brave souls like the one that tweeted. “If Wikipedia is going down, I’m going down with it,” Here Here I say!!!

This post is not about the ongoing coverage of SOPA / PIPA; you can get that from anyone of a number of media sites. My intention here is to focus attention on the ongoing never-ending assault on our civil liberties. I guess I could stir the pot with the never-ending lighting rod of “Roe v. Wade”, however I feel uncomfortable with the friction. I need to find someway to communicate the seriousness of these issues that threaten us all.

Over the last year our government; as quoted by the “IVN – US Independent Voter Network” as well as “MSNBC” has enacted or will attempt to enact close to 40,000 new laws that cover a wide variety of human actions and public policies. You might say we have come a long way since the “Code Of Hammurabi”.

There is a cruel infrastructure that feeds off all of us with a motley crew of politicians, judges, law enforcement personal and lawyers all in the name of “keeping us safe”. God help us or YOU if somehow “during the course of human events” that we get caught in the gears of this most insidious of machines.

Government has it’s purpose of course …… the corruption and powers that be, keep us safe at night! Make no mistake though …… government is not your friend. Never has been; never will be ……..

Bloggers Market … A Last Look Back!

The Future Of Bloggers Market

Bloggers Market

It’s the first of August as I write this ……. with my head in my hands! As I prepare for the “Big Move” I’m getting in pretty deep here. This issue started about two weeks ago when I started to have problems with the new site ….. I originally started out to produce a personal page apart from my marketing activities and wound-up building a portfolio of a dozen sites.

First Things Frist

One of the more important lessons that I have learned over the past three years is that you need to make things as compact as possible for your readers and to stay on point with your communication. Let’s call it Point 1 ( for the sake of this post ), of the Bloggers Funnel.

Very Sharp Points

Point 2 is that when pitching an offer for services or products, have a direct as possible route to that offer. Enter the “Landing Page”.

Now I told you all that to tell you this ….. I have no way for anyone to get to the landing pages easily. If I were an airport, you would never know which runway to use for your landing. Not Good.

What’s worse for the last two months or so you, my loyal readers have had to read between the lines to get any useful information with which you can use for your own Online business. I just have not had the time to invest into any real study of different subjects that would be of interest to you because of all the jazz that I have had to deal with concerning my move. I apologize for this.

Please Don’t Do This

However, if you take the time to read between the lines you will indeed find some useful information ……… on what not to do with your Online Business. I’m kinda learning as I go along on this trip.

Please Do This Instead

I hope things are a little clearer over at the new site ““. If you would please take a moment or two to browse the categories and check-out all the cool links and drop me a comment I would appreciate it.

As for the future of Bloggers Market; I’ll be posting here on the first Saturday of the month and this site will serve as my marketing arm for all of my WordPress Products.
