    I've been in web development for 15 years and online marketing for about 6 (used to be an adult network owner). I've been to many forums and I've honestly learned more just from BHW than I've learned on all others combined, and for that, I thank BHW and the community. These forums not only inspired me to dive deeper in the field of SEO but because of everything I've learned here, it's helped me help my wifes business and has been cause for me to be promoted to the National Marketing Team for my company.

    I'd love to know how BHW has changed or impacted your lives as well.

    Yes, I would say that Black Hat World has changed my life, although it wasn't so much the methods I learnt here that helped me, but it was the community that helped me. Black Hat World is the only place online and offline that I felt "accepted" in without having to pretend to be someone else due to its diversity and welcoming attitude (unless you're a clown, then you're not welcomed here). The advice I received from members here also helped me form and manage my business (even though my business is still a long way from being as successful as I want it to be).

    Plus, without Black Hat World, I would have never been able to afford that Mercedes I bought back in February. :cool:

    BHW is by far the best internet marketing forum around.

    There's a lot of legitimate business owners on here, as well as self-made entrepreneurs and such. It's a place where we can all gather and network, internationally of course.

    It's fantastic, hence why I don't mind dishing out $120 CAD a year to give back ;).

    It doesn't change my life.
    It is my life.

    I am grateful for it, though in an alternate Universe we are all on DP, imagine that haha. Let's be grateful for all BHW has offered us and still for many years, will continue to.
    Have learned much from it and i would still be stuck in MLM and the likes if it weren't for the knowledge BHW instilled to my mind. Always learning something new. :)
    Cheers to everyone on BHW

    Ever since I first found out about BHW I started learning an immense amount of things that I didn't know much about. Soon afterwards I failed my first attempts at online marketing, but the knowledge I gained off BHW allowed me to get my day job, which is mostly offline marketing, which has thankfully managed to get me to up my content game incredibly high.

    So soon I'm looking into trying to place a product on the market, and try to get it to customers through affiliates.

    BHW served more as a catalyst or fuse attached to the bomb full of fake cliches and fairytale bs that society effectively shoved in my ears, down my throat, up my ass then cemented with concrete.

    With that said, BHW can not hold the lighter to your ass and light it off. That's the hard part you must do on your own. Through due diligence and hard work only will that fuse be lit.

    It has taught me to observe and study the various tints and shades of the nature and emotions of completely unknown people from near and far off lands and from different cultures from very close quarters! :)

    It has also taught me to learn, observe, smile, laugh, fight, agree, disagree, share, receive, adjust, question, answer, become happy or even become confused, become unattached, and even become sad :))), etc. with the other member... It has brought some members much closer to my heart because they are anyway really good human beings who haven't let themselves affected by the barriers/differences of power, money, time and time-zones, culture, nationality, and distances, etc., while some other members (mostly they are "ex" now, thankfully) have taught me that some guys can do great harm to you, emotionally at least, even while they are unknown to, and very far away from you... and absolutely needlessly too!

    BHW has taught me that some guys in this world are ever on toes to become a great friend, or a great mentor by helping you learn through their rich experiences, and selflessly helping others all the while, while some guys will try to make life a hell by their greed, deception,... or just because they are made that way to hurt or harm others in various ways. I have seen greatly selfish and greatly selfless acts of activities here and it has always made me wonder of what those special guys are made of! :)

    So it's how you are faced with and learn to deal with the situations as they arise, learn from those situations, and move ahead in life. BHW also gives you the best of entertainment times which relaxes you and keep you away from the outside world miseries for that much little while longer, which becomes worthwhile and enables you to carry on with your on- and off-line life! :)

    Life on BHW is full of such rainbow colors, and one must enjoy these rich flavors thoroughly throughout the lifespan you are allowed to live here -- small or big! So make every moment on BHW count, and help yourself by making it a very pleasant experience for you... and if possible for the others around you too! As in the other world, the real world outside that nearest window, one has no idea when the time to say the final good bye will arrive! Make a place here so that people, at least some of them, will ever remember you and miss your presence when you are at last present no more!

    So think a bit more beyond how much BHW has changed your life... imho... begin thinking how will you will help change lives of others on BHW, and beyond BHW!

    Black Hat World, in a way, is a magical mirror which shows you what you are, what you have and what you lack, and clearly shows to you some of those unknown guys who are hidden behind the curtains of secrets and the dense mist that the online world is entirely filled with -- those guys are far, very far away, but you clearly see - if not their faces then their hearts definitely!

    That's how your life gets involved for life :))) on a good well-managed online forum, very positively especially if it's anything like the Black Hat World!
    Thanks, guys! :)

    It helped me put my business mind to use, I was delivering pizza before blackhatworld! Now I can go anywhere I want, do whatever I want, and my money still comes in.

    For instance right now I'm just chilling in Michigan, never been here before, before IM I would have never been able to just go to the beach when I felt like it.

    It was here my IM adventure started back in 2009. It was here that I learned the ropes of IM and that you really could make a respectable income with just a computer and an Internet connection. Without BHW and a burning desire not to be a wageslave, I probably would not be as financially free as I am today. Thank you BHW, even though I don't use you much any longer.

    Its nice to see so many positive stories. I come to BHW almost every night to see whats new. Always looking for that next big tip, tool, resource or method.
    There should be a Hall Of Fame Forum for all of the best and most helpful threads on BHW. That would be a very well read forum...
