The Ground Rules
Here are some things you need to keep in mind about this site.
- I’m not a guru.
I’m just a normal guy. Married with grown kids. Have a real job that has nothing to do with the Internet in any way. I’ve been studying Internet Marketing for a long time. It fascinates me and I have a passion for it. I DO believe it’s possible to start a business that’s mostly or even entirely online, and make a living at it. I think it will take a long time to do.
- Use your brain.
When you read something about making money online, here or anywhere, be skeptical. Ask yourself, “Does that make sense?” “Really?” My mom always told me, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Your mom probably told you the same thing. Listen to your momma.
- Yes, of course there are affiliate links.
I’m like you. I want to make some money online, sitting at home. In my underwear. So if I tell you about a product, and it has an affiliate program, I’ll use an affiliate link. I won’t tell you something is great just to get an affiliate commission.
I was a normal kid. I got into trouble from time to time. I got spankings. I don’t know how many spankings, because I only remember one of them.
It was for lying.
I remember my dad holding my arm with one hand and swinging a belt with the other. I ran around in this little circle with my dad as the hub, and he smacked my butt with that belt as I went round and round. I decided then that lying wasn’t a good plan. I gave it up then. I have no plan to start lying now, even for money.
- I spend my own money on this stuff.
If I tell you about a product, assume I bought it with my very own money and tried it out. If some hotshot guru ever gets so impressed with my blog that they comp me their latest product, I’ll let you know.
