    Hi fellow IMers.
    Let me try to cut a long story short. I'm the kind of guy who has always done what society told him to do, played by the rules, and I was sure that by doing things this way I would be successful. Went to school, studied hard, got to college, studied even harder, stayed in college for a while, got a pretty high degree, but then society told me - you've got to find a job! And that's when things got much more complicated... Finding a job didn't depend only on my effort, and after spending so much time studying and committed to build a career in my area of study, the only chance I had was working for free. :( And if there's one thing I refuse to do, is work for free!! Many of my colleagues chose that path, but the thing is that if people get you working for free, why should they start paying you? :( This economic downturn we're living doesn't help a bit, as unemployment is going up the roof... But it's the time we're living in, and guess I found life it's just not suppose to be fair, and your effort and dreams can die rather quickly. All this got me quite frustrated and in a depressive mood. But I sure didn't want to give up, so I started looking for jobs anyone could do, the flipping burgers or car washing kind of jobs, and as much stupid as this may sound to you, I was considered over qualified for that kind of jobs. Some people even got angry at me, for being the lucky kid that went to college, that's now trying to rob the only kind of jobs those people could get. Jealous stupid people... :(

    As I'm not lazy by nature, I started to look around to see what I could get my hands in to, and found MLM, the only kind of work where people couldn't care less about my education, ambitions, or life goals, as long as I was able to make them money. I tried to work with two MLM companies, worked hard, putted a lot of effort on it, and I was quite successful for a while. Unfortunately, as my country was heavily struck by the Euro crisis, and has to dwell with a lot of austerity, things got extremely complicated and so did my business. :(

    Not all is bad though, while working in MLM, I started to discover all the potential that the Internet has, and I started to discover, and became very interested, in Internet Marketing. If you're doing research on IM, it won't be long until you come across BHW, and when I found this amazing forum, I became addicted to it! ;) This place is such a gold mine, and I just love to learn(any stuff)!! :D
    To say the truth I've been coming to this forum for a few months now, and Black Hat World made me an IM Addict, as well as a BH enthusiast. For someone who has always played by the rules, BH and the feeling of bending them for some leverage, it's just awesome!
    Besides loving IM and being amazed by its vastness, I really think this could be my opportunity of being successful and make money, mainly because I have the world as market place, and don't have to be confined to my country that's going from bad to worse. Oh, and I don't give up!! ;)

    Thank you for all the knowledge and hope you gave me, so far. Hope I can start repaying it in a short while.:)

    So here I am BHW!

    you signed up as IM Addict, and you said BHW made you that, which means you have already been here with a different ID, and this is a duplicate ID. You risk a ban

    No, if you read my whole post, you would see that I have come here before, but never joined BHW. I have come here many times without creating an account, you know that's possible, right?

    Not necessarily. There are certain sections that can be viewed as a Guest - without joining.

    Aww don't take it personally dude. A lot of us try to be James Bond. But deep inside we don't have any hatred towards anyone. You can see that PA is a long time member so most likely he had to deal with tons of spammers. It's a common error.

    Welcome to BHW. You better watch out for Wiz, he's working for Matt Cutts so don't reveal any secrets to him. In rest, do something good with this addiction and make us proud. :)

    Cheers

    Fine then! :D
    But as you are a super moderator, please tell me something Wiz, where do you think I should start reading, now that I have full access to the forum?

    Thanks.

    Start by using our Search Engine and type in words like:

    - For Newbies

    OR

    - For Noobs

    Lao Tzu said, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step."

    You have taken the first step by joining our great forum. Take your time
    and browse around. If you see terms that you are not familiar with, use
    Google's search engine. Gradually, things will start making sense to you.

    Above All, Enjoy The Journey! :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Thank you so much Wiz!
    I thought your reply was meant as a joke, a joke you would do for noobs like me, but I searched for those suggestions you gave me, and a lot of great info was displayed! That will sure take some time to read, so guess I'll become even more of an addict in the next few days/weeks. :)

    I also like that Lao Tzu phrase, and I know it's true as I practiced Wu Shu for a long time (until I had a nasty knee injury) and I heard that phrase many times. The thing is that one of the journeys I started long ago, got me nowhere! :(

    I couldn't help noticing that at the end of the post you wrote ?Cheers!?, this makes me think you are also on this side of the Atlantic. At least I think you are in the not that bad part of Europe! :) Looking on the bright side, here in the south of Europe, we the PIGS, though we are completely broke we have good weather with lots of sun shine! :D
