I started reading this forum a few months back after stumbling over an article about WF rubbish.. I had dabbled in Internet Marketing a bit, and last August dropped hundreds of dollars into training courses. The cost was near $1000 all up and in my view the information was worth that value - but I must say, what I have gleaned from BlackhatWorld for free in a few short months has far exceeded that and has also enriched the process of learning the ins and outs of IM in a community of strangers who are friends. It really is true that the members of this community are inspired by one another's successes and not covetous of one another's successes.. it shows everyday in the multitude of threads I read. I enjoyed my Christmas break spending some of the fruits of my labour and am entering 2013 with some big goals and am hoping to start contributing worthwhile content for others in this magnificent forum. Cheers and thanks!
