As my time here at Bloggers Market slowly draws to a close, I’m left with thoughts of my new direction. Beyond a “Gone
Fishin Blogin’ sign on the front door there won’t be a lot left behind here. I’ll slowly remove the content to the Archives and will only post here about once a month. Hey, I’ve got a Pagerank of 3, I’m not about to let that go! I’m kinda crazy at times, but I’m not exactly a slow coach.
Having Fun With WordPress
I’ve been working on a new WordPress template as part of my offerings over at my new site and have come to appreciate all of the work that such undertakings require. It certainly is not my first project, however I’m tending to push the envelope a bit. Only problem with such activities is that while pushing the envelope may be cool to the ego, it doesn’t really provide much in the way of income. What’s worse, with no back-up of any sort, I’ve expended a ton of time while sorting through all of the different variables.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
I’d like to think that once I reach the end of the template rainbow I will find the hordes rushing in to make their purchases. The reality of course is that I’m seeing more and more websites that are offering dozens of templates for free …….. and man, are they killer looking. Sometimes I have to stare in wonder at the beauty of such designs. While I’m strong on the code end of things, I’m a touch weak in the imagination end of things. I’m sure of course that this will develop with more experience. Only problem is that I just don’t have the time or resources to pursue such things. I’m just not naturally gifted to make a go of it ……. what a shame.
Where To Bank
There are so many, doing so much, it’s hard for me to see where I might fit in. I’ve seen tons of themes with tons of plug-ins with tons of software to take you anywhere you may want to go ………. and all for free. Man, it’s kinda hard to figure where or exactly what to bank one’s future on.
What It Takes To Get The Job Done
My new sites will have a number of products and services that are sure to do well ……. but I don’t think I’m going to be “Blogging To The Bank” anytime soon. I’m playing it safe of course and those who profit the most take the greatest risks.
I’ve said it before; I’m still of the mind that to stand out among the millions of others out there, you’ll have to sell yourself. If you intend on earning an income Online; Running Ads, Offering Affiliate Products and playing it safe just won’t be enough to get the job done these days.
