    Share any habits you have picked up specifically from BHW over the years:


    Mine:
    -Addressing people as "Mate" and i'm not even friggin Aussie...lol
    -Reading threads from back to front to look for the bad reviews
    -Never asking for spoon-fed methods.
    -Feeling the urge to "thank" and "give rep" to my family and friends when
    they help me with something

    We call people 'Mate' in the UK by the way, new fact of life for you there :D

    I think my only one so far is reading something and then in my head I say over and over again 'Take action'

    Spying a person's threads and posts, and realize all the path he had from when he/she was a noob, 'till the road of success. It's funny, because there are so many techniques, niches, exact strategies that makes a lot of money, and which are told in numerous posts by an user, where if you make that puzzle up, you'll win a cookie ^_^ You got my point.

    So this is one of the things.. which was also profitable for me, lol :)

    I have no such habits because internet and real life are two separate things.

    Sifting through the Recent posts to read just the interesting and valuable ones.
    Giving rep to people who I feel deserve it.

    Haha, just pick your favorites! Sometimes it might get boring, until the point when you figure out what's inside the "player's" mind :)

    Whenever I see something new, I just only can think about how to make money out of it! ^^

    I speak completely different to people in different countries...like metafilters or something. I don't speak like that to everyone, but if it's clear they struggle with English, I only say the words that they will understand, like "How much cost?" instead of "How much money do you want for it?"

    I also ask them about the health of their family. I think it's much more respectful than just saying something like, "What's up, bro?" I know that's not the way their culture talks, so I don't do it.

    Most importantly, even if they are working for super low wages, I call them Sir and treat them with respect. I pay them on time and in full, because without them, I wouldn't be making the money that I am. It's imperative that they understand I'm in it for the long haul so they strive to do the best job possible in order to get business everyday.

    Just my little tidbit for those trying to business in other countries.

    i've picked up the habit of always hiding my work... whenever I'm having a problem with wordpress, etc. I find myself getting amazed that when people have problems on their forums, it's just "normal" to post a url to a project for someone to help you with...

    or talking with friends and family... am still covert about everything i do out of some fear that they'll go click my adsense because they think they're "supporting"

    Wow... so many of these I find myself doing... lol

    Bad habit I've developed: not subscribing to a thread because its so good I'll never forget where it is... and then not being able to find it a day or two later and wasting a lot of time!
