Happy Third Birthday To Bloggers Market

Well, it’s that time of year again. Happy third birthday to Bloggers Market! I actually thought I would be doing something different this month. Since moving over to “”, I thought I would use this platform to pitch products. However, I’ve sorta slid into a gray area of future products management and paying the bills around the place!

Trending … Maybe …

Anyhoo, I’m needing new content here so I thought I would take the day and celebrate, and tell some tall-tales about that Internet Lifestyle that I’m living these days. Hopefully I’ll have all things in place next month for the marketing plan.

Did Someone Mention Products?

I guess I could mention a little about what is to come here at Bloggers Market. I’m working on three projects at the moment. Two will be forthcoming and the third will be delayed a bit.

The first two will be products that deal with Blogging. I’m not sure of the timing here which has me babbling a bit as I write this, but I’ve got a “how to build and sell websites” product and the big one, which I’m about a third of the way through at this time is “Blogging Extreme”.

I’ll have to admit that its been a bit more challenging to provide myself a roadmap for products than I had originally thought. I’m not sure of the market at this time and the economy still has me a bit of stride.

Yoda Of WordPress Strikes Again!

As you might have noticed the Twitter API has been on the blink here of late. I spent an entire night re-writing the code for the API, before realizing that I had a dry feed; Yoda of WordPress strikes again. In other words all I needed to do was to tweet something and it would have come right back. I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve not had time to tweet the last month. So much for that Internet Lifestyle that I mention earlier.

That Internet Lifestyle Development Environment

As I worked through a killer security problem with, of all things, the WordPress Permalinks Structure, I realized that there was a huge security breach in the back-end of secured files and directories out-side of the WordPresss structure. I know, I know …… WHAT??? There is no way that I can address this issue here in this post and it will probably run too several pages on the WordPress Forums. In the end I found no security breach, rather it was how I had structured my development Environment. I know, I know …… WHAT???

No Fun Being Yoda Of WordPress

The WordPress Permlinks thingy was killer enough …… 12 hours worth, but the perceived “security breach” was the real killer, chasing a problem that did not exist …… Internet Lifestyle indeed! I should have been a dog groomer!


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.
