I have been blogging since 2003 when blogger first opened and I heard about this new “wave” coming across the Internet. Then I heard about how you can make money blogging. I thought. What the heck? As I studied this further I heard of a guy making “six figures”

Of course I jumped right on in there and started this (and other) blogs.

Now there seems to be TONS of blogs that “teach” you how to become a “professional” blogger.  The most famous would be He comes up right away if you do a search for “blogging” He’s a full time  blogger making over $100,000 per year.

Who can argue with success?

I went straight out to a bookstore and slapped down the $30.00 for his book. I learned a few things.. Implemented many of these suggestions  on this and another site. I had a lot of fun (like I am now) but only earned about $50.00 and it’s a lot of work, so I slowed down on the blogging and pursued other, uh… Hobbies.  (I’ll let you use your imagination)

Now there are 100’s of sites teaching many of the same things that are on the problogger website and book. They all kinda teach the same things.

  • Write fresh and interesting content
  • Use Google (and other) Ad’s
  • Network on Facebook, Twitter etc..
  • Decorate your posts with pictures, video etc
  • Use a “professional” theme (or one that looks like it)
  • Always be focused on a “niche”

Yea, yea…Whatever…  All these sites are basically writing  the same thing. How to “build a better blog” and make money with it. They are called the “A” list. And I have learned a lot from them. I have posted a comment here and there on their sites… No reply.. Why would they want to talk to a guy that’s just writing complete nonsense anyways? Ya know… (worthless opinions)

Then there’s this cat named “Griz” He has a totally different view of how to make money online. He is kinda radical and tends to bag on the “A” list dudes. He has a free blogger site up and claims he can now work a few hours a week and then play golf the rest of the time.

I enjoy following his blog but he doesn’t post much… He’s out on the golf course… You dig?

Now, in my search again, I came across a bloke who explains how it’s REALLY done. On his blog he reveals 3 secrets to a popular blog. Hey now, I can dig it.  I have kinda tried #3 for awhile. (It’s one of Griz’s methods) But I don’t want to work as hard as he did.. I just want to post wacky stuff in my “niche” – Opinion. And like everybody… I got an opinion on EVERYTHING.

Celebrity’s – Beautiful People

When ya look at the TV or browse the internet you see all kinds of celebrity’s they all seem to be beautiful people. Just take a look at them. They are all about being pretty.

Why is this? How come when you watch your daily soaps you don’t see some average people out there… Ya know, like it is in real life?

I was watching Grey’s Anatomy the other night. Checking out all those beautiful doctors.  It sure would be cool to go to that hospital.. Don’t ya know it?

But then again, with all that sex that’s goin’ on  in the back room of the hospital I may be afraid to let them cut on me.  Come on?? How focused can they be with all the drama?

If I ever make it on a TV show Id probably just be an “extra”… One of the average people 🙂

Jack Nicholson – Is He Ugly?

Now you could say that Jack Nicholson is one of the greatest actors of all time… But I hear time and time again that he is “ugly”

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder isn’t it? I’m sure he doesn’t have any problem getting the babes. What are good looks anyways when you got that kind of money and notoriety? And he STILL get’s high!

Who Killed Kurt Cobain?

Do you ever wonder who killed Kurt Cobain?  It’s one of the most interesting rock and roll stories out there. High on heroin, writing songs.  Hey, was that guy actually that tormented? Or did someone KILL him?

Heroin - Kurt Cobain's Drug of choice

He shot himself, right?

Ever seen the movie Kurt and Courtney?

I was listening to that Hole record that Courtney Love recorded . It got really popular after his suicide…. The songs on that record sound eerily similar to Cobains stuff… Maybe he had a few demo’s laying around the house that he was recording while high on heroin. Hmmmm? (sound’s like fun)

They probably co-wrote that stuff together huh? I’m sure the rumors aren’t true.  Still, there is some weirdness surrounding his death. But being in the drug culture is  weird anyways..

And I KNOW this 😛

– Heroin Kills.
