Old Version of FileZilla I Use All The Time

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

I have been using the same old FileZilla FTP client for years now. One a I bought a long time ago, and now it works perfectly. I know there are lots of these old version kicking around the Internet, but this post is actually for myself and friends to use when we need to install FileZilla on a new computer. (more…)

Go this nice little email this morning from Michael Lee and Andrew X on their new service called Google Ambush. Catchy title and catchy idea for sure. These two were smart enough to see the difficulty you average Internet marketer has trying to make a profit using the standard system; (more…)

Blackhat Seo That Ends Up Pure White

Blackhat Weekend is Here Again

Well that week went by really fast as usual. So I spent most of Saturday working hard creating blogs for some friends of mine – as sometimes I love helping someone get started and not have to deal with the same four year learning curve I had. Now it’s time to talk about something I find REALLY fascinating.

Last weekend I was talking about my dabbling with Blackhat SEO, and we looked at turning a WordPress blog into an RRS splog, and how I was not happy with any of the results I got. The reason being that the content is regurgitated, stolen, and presented in a hapless way. I like my blogs to look good and I can’t settle for re-hashed content. So what is the answer to creating 100% original content (as far as the Internet is concerned), and creating an enormous amount of it fast? Well I think I’ve finally found an answer to that question, and it works better than ANY system I’ve ever used. There is no other system that works as well as this if you are like me and don’t want to spend all your time having to “network” all day long, and get accepted into powerful a powerful blog club. I know that some of you reading this want to grow your online wealth with total control, and go it alone. I know that for some this seems ridiculous, and that no one is an island, but I know some bloggers who don’t join “clubs” and like to work on the fringes too. (more…)

Shaun Donovan Hud Appointment

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

Dear Terry,

In a week when unemployment numbers soared to near-record highs, President-elect Barack Obama’s weekly address focused on crafting solutions that will help hard-working American families and struggling homeowners during this economic crisis.

To put our country and our economy back on track, it will take every part of the Obama-Biden Administration working together to bring about the change Americans need.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is crucial to that effort. That’s why President-elect Obama has selected Shaun Donovan, a widely respected Housing Commissioner from New York City, to lead this vital agency.

The Housing and Urban Development Secretary must bring a bold, innovative, and efficient approach to the position. Mr. Donovan will reinvigorate HUD with the fresh thinking necessary to protect thousands of American homes threatened by the current financial crisis.

Thank you,

John

Letters From Michael Moore – Senate to Middle Class: Drop Dead

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Friends,

  • They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers start building only cars and mass transit that reduce our dependency on oil.
  • They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers build cars that reduce global warming.
  • They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers withdraw their many lawsuits against state governments in their attempts to not comply with our environmental laws.
  • They could have given the loan on the condition that the management team which drove these once-great manufacturers into the ground resign and be replaced with a team who understands the transportation needs of the 21st century.

Yes, they could have given the loan for any of these reasons because, in the end, to lose our manufacturing infrastructure and throw 3 million people out of work would be a catastrophe. (more…)

Letter To a Friend – How Your Blog Can Make Big Money

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

So I thought I would post this little email I sent to a friend who is getting ready to launch his DJ/Music website and he had never heard of WordPress. He has a very limited amount of technical knowledge, and I want to help him use the Internet to his full potential. He took the initiative by getting his domain name started with a little starter site, which he paid for, and now I want to help him create wonderful WordPress blog that he can easily manage. He is going to do Podcasts, and live DJ shows within a Global community. It’s a new idea for me, and I’m excited to get him going. You can see Wayne’s early web beginnings at Wayneszart.ca.

Wayne is one of the most talented and passionate people I have ever met, and his life’s journey is amazing. He was born in Jamaica, and moved to Canada with his Mom. He has a true entrepreneur’s mind and understands the importance of multiple streams of income, and the importance of making your money doing something you love. I’m hoping this DJ/Music blog will set him free forever.

So here is the letter I sent him this morning. If you are considering blogging as a way to make a full time living, I hope you find this email and this post a source of motivation.

Hi Wayne,
I’m very excited about helping you out with your cool project. Music! – right up our alley, and it’s a new script for me to master. Here is an example of what your site could look like, but of course we’ll make it the way you want. Click here to see the Terry Zulit blog

Now your site will be very different of course, but you will run on the WordPress platform like me. Bloggers like myself make money from our blogs, and I can show you to do what you love and make it a financial stream as well. Betty and I have over 50 blogs like this now, and they can be about anything. I learned how to do this at this Australia fella’s (Darren) blog: http://www.problogger.net/

Darren only has two blogs and make over $12,000 a month talking and podcasting about what he loves. You can make a good living JUST doing what you love. This is real and not a scam Wayne. We’ve been free for over 4 years now working from home. See this check to see what I mean. This is one month for us: http://www.zulit.com/july-adsense-income.jpg

Here is what Jeremy makes (another Aussie I think ;-)) per month:

Get me the username and login to your hosting account, and I’ll get you going my friend.

P.S. – I just realized something while writing this, these Australians are a brilliant bunch.
