    I'm so grateful that I've found this place - but it bugs me that I haven't been able to contribute anything yet.

    As a BH newbie I really don't fell I have anything valuable to add to the conversation.

    So far I've downloaded a bunch of stuff, read through a small part of it, gotten my feet wet with some of the software and clicked the Thanks button numerous times - but I haven't really given anything back to the community and I feel like a parasite.

    I guess I will eventually be able to get my own Thanks button clicked, but until that happens I'll crawl back into lurker-mode

    Well everyone has to start somewhere.. you read the methods, put your own spin and then start making money.. Once you get successful you will eventually share your methods and even donate to BHW

    Amen

    I am also a newbie, but honestly everyone seems very kind here. I am working on a few writing pieces to give back here for free that may help in the future so just start working on something, learn as much as you can, be creative and try to give back when the time is right.

    I've been in learning mode, but getting more creative with FB and Twitter so I may have some decent ideas to share soon that might actually be decent. Keep learning, and learning, and I know it is SO boring to say "consistency is king" but the truth shall set you free...and THAT is the one thing I have learned, patience and consistency. You won't build a house by putting bricks down for only 2 days...live it!

    Give HaRRo and each of the staff members $1000 each and I am sure that we will all overlook your lack of contributing content :D

    Thats what this site is about to get information and share information, If your new to the game like you said you are this is a great place for someone like your self to learn and make money and try new things. There is a ton of people on here making money online using a 1000 different ways, however trust me there is a 1000 more ways out there, and you in time may stumble onto something we all dont know and then share it.

    I'm almost starting to feel the same way about leeching. I have great ideas though and would love to have a group of "mentors" or "online buddies".

    This way we could negotiate what is working, how to make it better, new ideas, promotion ideas, website marketing, physical marketing, etc.

    I've still yet to find that though and am barely getting my feet wet. I'm just trying to figure out some methods and such. As stated before, I use to do internet marketing 3-4 years ago doing the work at home/data entry crap with clickbank. It made quite a bit of money but now that niche isn't converting very well. Plus the keywords for that stuff is extremely expensive. Now i'm poor again after going to college and basically learning that our economy here in detroit is fucked.

    I as well want to contribute to this community.

    use the search function, read about methods, add your own twists, focus on one project at the time and never give up.

    the one and only recipe for success in IM.

    good luck, friends. may this forum and its members bring you richness, and may you share your methods one day too.

    ps : sorry for the preaching:p

    I would be up for that if anyone is interested. I'm not looking to coach anyone but I have been around the block a few times and would be willing to share what know with one or two guys.

    Just don't flood me message box :D
