    Well I have been a member here for a while and as I keep saying, I am not an Internet Marketer like most of you guys but just a coder.

    I see you guys raking it in and whilst I make some nice money from coding (thanks to the guys in here donating or buying from custombot), its nowhere as near as much as some of the reports I see in here (even after ignoring the obvious BS from most people!) so the decision has been made.

    I am off on vacation for two weeks where I will be offline in the fresh air, in the sun and having some fun.

    I will be taking a notepad and pen and will start to devise a plan to start when I get back - hopefully I will make a few quid here and there but I will start the adventure.

    So really, apart from telling you I am off on vacation, I want to say thanks to certain people in here for the inspiration. If I make 10% of what you guys do I will be happy man.

    Take it easy people!

    Enjoy your vacation!

    I also took a few days of not too long ago and i hadn't even think about accessing the internet while i was away (i could have, there was wifi+smartphone) and i haven't missed it a bit. Keep yourself occupied during your vacation and you won't miss the internet at all, promise. :)

    LOL, the place I am going is lucky to receive electricity constantly all day and the signal for phone and internet is non existent. thats why I am going. Cut off from everyone and everything - looking forward to having a drink on the beach out of the reach of 99% of the population !

    Good for you!

    I think you won't regret this, especially the time away from coding and the Internet overall.

    I actually do something similar every year but for a little more than a week. Every year it brings me something awesome -- last year I gained a lot of confidence and determination which resulted in a better life and this year... Well, I'm still on vacation and I've rediscovered BHW, learned a fair deal, I'm starting some keyword research and I've made 32$ via TB (last 3 days) in my downtime between chilling with friends and partying with friends, which I will use towards my SEO work.

    Again, enjoy yourself, relax, and ideas will come.

    Cheers all and Greg - you might regret that when I get back ;)

    Must admit I have let a few people down with coding lately mainly due to me needing a break - if that includes anyone here I apologise, thats why I don't take any money until I give people the code.

    Anyone enough of the excuses and thanks for the replies all......Fatboy will be back refreshed and ready to go soon ;)
