    What are some of the best strategies you've learned here after being a member for that long?

    Same here.. At least I comfort myself with the thought that BHW is a lot better than FB/Instagram. :D

    Still need to be balanced though

    The most important thing I learned is
    NEVER GIVE UP and the second one which changed my life is THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

    i have been a member of so many other forums, but still, i feel like BHW is home town forum and rest of those are other cities, i don't know why. I do check BHW at least 10 times a day :D

    Jokes apart, I am not really a seo guy; so I don't bother the big brother watching me, lol. I would be happy if I get a job there lmao (not kidding actually lol.. the training you get over there is priceless; according to what I have heard). :D

    I know, how ironic is it that most SEO's use Chrome.

    Very true. Maintaining your commitment to excellence (never giving up) and creative marketing are proven methodologies to maintain for achieving success.

    Yeah, legend says you can push your own site to #1 when employed by Big Daddy G. Oh yeah, you also get free lunch every day, the REAL perk.

    Haha.. As for the free lunch, the company I work for allows me to work from home too (as long as I finish my tickets). How about that? I can cook for myself at home. Big G can't beat it, I bet. :D

    As for pushing my site to #1, nah.. I will pass. I like to play fair (atleast, publicly ;) ).

    That being said, Big G is the heaven for any programmer who wants to make it big! I know I want to, knowledge wise that is. That is the reason why I want to be in Google some day lol. It is not about money for me. I will probably earn more if I do what I am currently doing. Knowledge is what I am after.

    There is no way that BHW is a distraction, Facebook and Instagram are distractions, Not BHW. Just try to make that "every 10 minutes" into "every 20 or 30 minutes". There is someone here who said something about addiction .. addiction is something interfering with your daily life. You are here interacting with people who do the same business as you do (IM) and you're looking for opportunities to learn new skills and make more money. That's not "interfering with your daily life". That is indeed "your daily life !" Plus, we work alone so we need entertainment more than others. :):smirk:

    I didn't say it was bad. I just suggested one may want to look internally.

    You also may want to take care of your freebie offers as you are not following up there.

    Of course, still needing one more MOD for my giveaway to commence. Would you like to claim the last of the free articles so my giveaway can be completed/started? :)

    No, I have no interest but you have a ton where you did not follow through and that will get you a warning should you not follow though.

    The most recent is not the only one where you offered a freebie and then did not follow through.

    I am going to follow through or I would not have made the offer. However, I cannot expedite content delivery ahead of my paying clients that are in my queue, that wouldn't be fair (hence, the reason delivery hasn't taken place "yet").

    Rest assured, those that participated in my giveaway will receive what was promised, beginning this week. :)

    Internet Marketing. Always looking for new ways to eventually make money.

    Before Youtube demonetized me, I was making enough money for quite a comfortable life where I live and was just starting to semi-retire from excessive Internet usage, going out more, driving my kid to training, reading books.. and that Youtube hit me and I'm back to square one, staring at my screen whole day, looking for new things to make money from.

    Few days before demonetization bought some 20 books and was in negotiation to buy double of that, planning to spend winter reading tons of books and taking it easy. It hit me on the first and never read it to the end.
