    Hey guys n gals...

    Yeah, im gonna be a.w.o.l. from the forum for a while.

    Havent been making the amounts that makes the work worthwhile to be honest. Im spending 18 hour days in front of the computer...fuck that, my kids are growing up around me and my head is always stuck in front of the computer.

    Im sure there are those out there making amounts of money that we are all striving for. But ive been trying this whole work from home thing for many years now and its only now i realise just how much time and money ive lost....

    I thought i had the tenacity to see this good, but for the amount of work that has to be done its just not worth it in my eyes...pinging,bookmarking,article writing or outsourcing,article directory submissions,commenting,rss feeds,permalinks....the list goes on....

    Im taking a little time out to get my head together and work out where im going now. I seem to be more interested in learning php and visual basic than i do this I.M. stuff, and to be honest i enjoy learning php and vb more.

    Perhaps this is the way its meant to be, or not, i dunno anymore...

    Anyway....

    Hope you all prosper and get what your seeking, maybe ill be back with a more positive attitude and a better plan than that ive been following lately...


    Until im back, hope you all have one hell of a christmas and an amazing new year.

    Peace...

    J

    Good bye Sir, I am going
    My country calleth me
    Allow me Sir, at parting
    To wipe my tearing e'e

    In token of our friendship
    Accept this "Bonnie Doon"
    And when the hand that pluck'd it
    Hath passed beyond the moon

    The memory of my ashes
    Will consolation be
    Then farewell Tuscarora
    And farewell Sir, to thee.

    noobs not making anything, may I ask what methods you are using. I mean its tough to get rich here, but you should be able to make a few bucks a day without too much effort.

    Just get a U.S. proxy for a couple bucks, a gmail account, sign up at Associated Content, download a PLR article from here and rewrite and submit it. That should be an easy $2 right there. Its as close to foolproof as you are going to get.

    Scotland was trying to do something harder upfront but in the long term, more hands off and stable and that was make blogs. It can be done but if you want some early encouragement, that method won't give it to you.

    GL out there Scotland, take a break, do some other stuff. Let your head clear out for about a year, then come back and try this again with a fresh perspective. Look at my join date, I went through the exact same pattern as your going though right now and I can say from experience that a good 9-12 months of not thinking about IM is just what you need. I went through a period of spending countless hours trying to make money online and I ended up with little to nothing in each of my online ventures at first. Frustrated and sour I turned away from IM and BHW and didn't look back for a long time. Then one day I woke up and I felt completely different, so I decided to dust off my finest black hat and gave it another go. The second time I found success. I just wasn't ready for it the 1st time I tried, I had to completely change my brainwaves and thinking pattern. It was necessary for me to break away for about a year. I matured as a person and then tried it again and have had success, and I think the same thing will apply for you. I could not have had success by continuing to beat my head against the computer looking for a steady cashflow though the internet.

    This is one of those fields where you either have it or you don't and you are making the right move by leaving for a while because at this moment, you don't have it. Do not feel badly for giving up on IM for a short time, you won't get anywhere by continuing to do what your currently doing. You'll keep doing things the same way and you will keep having the same result.

    I wish a good break from BHW and surly I'll you around maybe this time next year, have fun offline and godspeed.

    Notepad++ turn on split view, have your writing in one pane and a swipe file in the other. You can easily turn enough articles to make more than the average Mc. Donalds worker.

    I do think that we all get discouraged from time to time but don't forget that maybe you are not doing anything wrong and people that would normally buy from you are not based on the tough economy worldwide.

    I know myself I would buy more software and stuff but the money is hard to part with. Good luck, I'm sure we will see you back because a true IM'er always comes back!
