    Greetings all,

    I'd really like to address all of the noobs out there, as I am one myself. Having lurked in BHW for a couple of weeks now, I have discovered a common theme amongst it all. I sat up and took notice and the dim lightbulb of discovery went off above my head. "Holy shit," said I, "I get it!" And this is what I'm referring to when I say it is the most valuable thing to be found here. It can't be downloaded, bought or sold, but once in full possession of it, you'll understand and only then is success imminently approaching around the corner. And it has nothing inherently to do with black hat, even. Okay, enough riddles:

    THINK OUTSIDE THE FREAKING BOX

    Got it? What you need to get out of all this are ideas, your own ideas! Learn how others are making these methods and tools work for them but, for Christ's sake, don't copy what they do! Change it! Try it in a new way, add to it, subtract to it, whatever. That is why these methods all work, not because the method itself works but because the mind behind it is making it work. Twist this shit around and make it yours. If you can't figure out how to do that, keep reading the forums and keep trying. Brainstorm! Crazy ideas are usually the best, act on them!

    The most successful ideas discussed in these forums aren't necessarily the most original, but someone went beyond the cookie-cutter "teach me step-by-step" mentality and did it their own way. And I believe that is the root of why so few will actually tell you exactly what they did or are doing to be a successful internet marketer. Accept the information that's offered to you and understand that, while perhaps appearing incomplete, it is actually more than enough foundation to be built upon.

    Ah... that felt good.

    The thing I remind myself of constantly is "There is ALWAYS more than one way to make money off of 1 click!" If you get someone to click, don't try to make money off of it one way. Think whitehat first, ads, text, etc, then thing black hat, blind links, redirects, exits, popups, multiple submits, etc.

    Not that I'm a Bible thumper (though I have read it) but this verse comes to mind..

    (Ecclesiastes 1:9-14 NIV) What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

    Most everthing has been done in some way shape or form.. but putting a new twist on it make it yours.

    Yep, I'm sure this little revelation occurs to a lot of people at any given moment. I'm also sure my post is in no way unique, but it was compelling enough to share nonetheless. Which brings me to...
    Well put indeed. In all things there's a fine line between influence and imitation.
