Hello folks!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and profitable week!!
You know, this is the best time of the year to take advantage of the advertising
offered in AdlandPro and in Pressmania, especially if you’ve managed to get your
business automated! I mean, wouldn’t it be nice if you went on vacation and found
that you’ve been making money from those ads that you placed and forgot? Hey,
how do you think people that make money on the Internet do it? Are they sitting on
top of their computer 24/7 or are they out enjoying their life? What would YOU
rather be doing?
Think about it.

=============NEW Tidbit==========================

Are you investing in yourself?
======================

OK, most people by now are aware that they must invest in their business in order to
get it off the ground.

But how about investing in yourself? Have you thought about it?

We don’t come in this world knowing everything, right? We LEARN to first crawl,
then walk, then run. It’s the same thing with every new task we undertake… we have
to LEARN how to do it, and certainly, online marketing has a rather steep learning
curve.

But that’s not all. How about yourself?? Are you spending enough time, effort and
resources into becoming a better person? On learning how to achieve your goals at
along last? On getting rid of old, preconceived and ultimately damaging ideas?

It always surprises me how many people don’t understand that all of life is a learning
process. It amazes me that people will spend money on all sorts of useless things and
not a penny on what is most important: themselves!

So, here is the question of the day: If all you had in life was $500, how much would
you invest on being trained to reach a new level in your life?

Re: Exploding you ezines subscriptions
From: Vitae Bergman

Dr. Bob Siegman's comments to this theme strikes a cord with me.

Since I am a writer and author, as well as an information consumer [read freak]
content to me is the essential ingredient in any of the many newsletters and ezines to
which I subscribe.

So, in addition to writing novels, I'm busy writing articles for subscription lists.

For anyone here who owns a newsletter or ezine and has a continuous need for
content material, there are website clearing houses that provide articles on a wide
variety of subjects, either freely or at modest cost.

Here are a few:

http://ezinearticles.com/ 
http://www.constant-content.com/ 
http://www.goarticles.com/ 
http://www.associatedcontent.com/ 

The Internet for me is a marvellous symbiotic soup-mix. Ezine owners need
writers/writers need ezine owners.

A great Big Thank You
From: Garret Belisle

Firstly, allow me to apologize for not sending a post earlier, I have been to busy
learning from every post I receive from everyone here.

My thanks.

I do have a question that I have been missing the answer to, or it is right in front of
me and I simply do not see it.

Here it is:

I have a main site up and running, with respect to blogs, would it be a good idea to
go to blogger.com and make a similar site as a blog or have a blog with an open
discussion on the information I have out there now?

I would appreciate any feedback.

Sincerely

Garret Belisle

I just posted this a little while ago in the Digest Forum, and I’m re-posting it here,
because it applies just as much to the Digest e-mail. I hope someone can analyze it
for me please, because I am unable to comprehend it.
=============================================

What is SO important about placing one more ad in a Forum, especially when you
KNOW that no ads are allowed?

Do you truly believe that the people who visit here will be actually GRATEFUL that
you opened their eyes to your opportunity/product or whatnot?

Let's get SERIOUS folks! You only end up irritating the members and you are not
likely to get a single sale out of it.

Someone EXPLAIN IT TO ME PLEASE???

===============New Discussion (3)========================

Do you qualify your prospects?
From: Amalia Sotiriadou

I’m full of questions today, huh? .I guess I woke up curious!
This is a question for those dealing with MLM mainly, but it may apply to anyone
who is recruiting affiliates or potential business partners.
You see, one of the problems in online MLM today, and the reason that so many
people have been disappointed with the business, is that few (if any) programs
encourage their affiliates to test and qualify their prospects BEFORE recruiting
them. When you are recruited into a program, you are basically told: “ok, go out now
and multiply”! Some companies are better than others and may actually give you
some sort of system to duplicate and even a bit of training, but many won’t even
bother.
People who have little or no business skills recruit other people who have little or no
business skills and since no one really knows what they are doing, pretty soon the
structure collapses and you end up with a lot of people in your downline who just sit
there and do nothing.
By the time you catch on and try to start training them, they are so fed up with the
system, they hear MLM and run away as fast as they can!

Have you ever considered QUALIFYING a prospect before recruiting them? Making
them go through a sort of “interview” as if they were applying for a job?

If you have applied this system online, what have your results been?

Re: Site Review: Natasha's Russian Recipes
From: Kindra Martinenko

Hi Natasha! First of all, I would like to say that your website brought back many
fond memories for myself, as a young exchange student living with a Russian family
in 1994. The moment I saw your recipes for Blini, I knew this was a bookmarkable
site! I would love to visit your town in the near future!

Now, as for the site itself, over all, you did a nice job. I would make the following
suggestions to tidy it up a bit:

1. Change the title from "Cooking and Recipes" to "Russian Cooking and Recipes".
Cooking and recipes is too generic for a content specific site such as yours. Since
almost every recipe you have is for authentic Russian courses or Russian variations
of traditional meals, you want people to know that this site is about sharing Russian
recipes. Also, you can take the period "." off the title.

2. You nailed the general navigation scheme the first time around, so good job!
Some recommended fixes:

a)Move the link to "home" over to the left navigation, making it the first link on the
top. Make it a larger font size and bold it.

b)Change the font size for all of the text on your website to "10" or "2", depending
on what you are using to edit the content of your website. If you are not quite sure,
then increase the current font size you are using by 1 step. This seems to be the web
standard for font size and the search engines like it.

c)I found that on some of the pages (notably, this page:
http://recipes.siteburg.com/coffee/index.htm) that the page title wraps around the
next line and overlaps other text in the navigation. This must be a CSS issue. I
would try adding a line of code within your CSS that fixes the wrapping issue. You
can go to http://www.w3schools.com/ and find a bunch of good resources on how to
troubleshoot CSS.

d)On your Coffee Recipe pages, instead of having numbers for the recipes on the
navigation, I would name each link by the type of coffee (for example, Blue Morning
Choice). Or better yet, classify the coffee by what type it is. For example, if there
are particular coffees that compliment desserts, make a page dedicated to dessert
coffees. Or, coffees that have liqueur in them could be classified as Liqueur Coffee.
I also noticed that you have some photos of dessert on the coffee recipe pages. I am
not sure if you did this on purpose, but I noticed that some of the directions for the
desserts were on the pages with the directions for the coffee. Again, probably
another CSS issue.

3.There is something wrong with your coffee recipe e-book. It does the same thing
as the main web pages for the coffee recipes. I would also try compiling your ebook
using PDF. If you have Microsoft Word, Publisher, or another similar word
processing software, you can compile your coffee recipe pages and save the
document. You can then pick up a very handy PDF compiling software for free at
www.pdf995.com. This will turn your word-processed document into pdf format.

4. You have so many recipes, all of them look great. I would seriously consider
making a gigantic e-book (with full color photos) out of all of your recipes and
signing up to ClickBank (www.clickbank.com) so you can sell it for $21.95 and
offer an affiliate program as well. I would be your first customer and affiliate!


Natasha, I really enjoyed your website. You put in a lot of hard work and it shows. I
look forward to using some of your recipes soon and visiting your beautiful town.

Best wishes,

====================GUEST ARTICLE =====================

Being Determined - What Good Will That Do? by Kate Harper
==============================================

‘Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one
thing till it gets there.’ -- Josh Billings

On Sunday, June 19th 2005, I was fortunate enough to see hundreds of cyclists,
young and less young, tackle the 13th Scottish Bikeathon in aid of Leukaemia
Research. The course of 26 miles wound its way through the spectacular Highland
countryside, with some breathtaking sights along the way, as well as some pretty
steep hills. What impressed me was not so much the fit and athletic who completed
the course in next to no time, but the others who didn’t usually attempt this kind of
thing, but were absolutely determined to complete the 26 mile course. One of those
was a 7 year old girl, who along with her father, slogged along from 10.45 in the
morning until 3.30 in the afternoon, with only a half hour break for lunch. She
wasn’t the fastest, in fact I think she was the slowest, but she was not going to give
up! That was determination! As she came to the finish there was the biggest,
brightest smile I have seen in a long time. All that effort was definitely worth it and I
know she’ll be doing it again next year. How do I know? She told me. You see, she
is my daughter.

How can determination help to move you towards your goals? The goal here was
the finish of a somewhat tough 26 mile course. It was in the same place as the
starting point, so was a clear landmark in everyone’s minds. In this case, moving
towards the goal was made simpler by the fact that everyone was riding bicycles! If
you didn’t do something, like pedaling, you would go nowhere! However, you had to
be determined to reach that goal. There was ample opportunity to give up, as there
were support vehicles ready to take the weary and exhausted back to the start, and
no-one would have judged you for it. The last half was particularly challenging, as
there were quite a few long steep hills to climb. Completing the 26 miles was no
simple task.

Can being determined help you do what you’ve been putting off for a while? Yes,
indeed! Why not follow the example of those fantastic cyclists and get on your bike!
Or put on your training shoes, or walking boots. Or join a dance class! What have
you been putting off? What is weighing heavy on your mind that needs a kick-start?
Do you really take care of yourself? What can you add into your life that will make
a difference to your health and wellbeing? Show some determination and do
something!

Determine to do something for yourself. A wonderful day out in the fresh, clean air,
doing something to raise money for charity in the company of like-minded people. I
don’t know of anyone who participated in the Bikeathon who didn’t have a
tremendous sense of satisfaction at completing the course. This was the ideal
situation of doing something challenging for you while helping others. Why not see
if something similar is taking place somewhere near you?

Determine to do something active every day. You don’t really get more active than
this! 26 miles up and down hills. Pedaling hard and breathing with your full lung
capacity. This is activity at its best! Activity of one form or another will not only
give you a healthier body, but a healthier mind.

Be determined to do something because you want to, not because you have to.
Everyone who was participating was there because they wanted to be. This is not an
event that you have to do. There are many people who have never taken part,
including myself, who are not judged by those who do. There is a party atmosphere,
with some people putting on fancy dress, and the whole day is one of celebration.
Celebrating life to help those who are struggling with a threat to theirs.

Determine to do something new every day. For many people taking part this was
definitely a new experience. And for many of those, it is an experience they are
determined to repeat next year!

Be determined to do something creative every week. Creativity manifests itself in
many ways. Our imagination takes flight and we can see ourselves achieving all sorts
of resourceful and inspirational things. Just cycling through the glorious Highland
scenery is bound to have set someone’s creative juices flowing. I’m willing to bet on
it! What a great feeling!

Make sure you are determined to do something for nothing. This one is a tough one.
This event was not for nothing. It was to raise as much as possible for the charity
Leukaemia Research. However, I don’t think there was one person taking part who
did so for any recognition or glory. They took part for the challenge and the fun of
it, and because they were determined to do it!

Isn’t it time you became determined?

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

"The Truth"
=========

At school, a boy is told by a classmate that most adults are hiding at least one dark
secret, and that this makes it very easy to blackmail them by saying, “I know the
whole truth” -- even when you don't know anything.

The boy decides to go home and try it out. As he is greeted by his mother at the front
door he says, “I know the whole truth.” His mother quickly hands him $20 and says,
“Just don't tell your father.”

Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him
with, “I know the whole truth.” The father promptly hands him $40 and says, “Please
don't say a word to your mother.”

Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day, when he sees the
mailman at his front door. The boy greets him by saying, “I know the whole truth.”

The mailman drops the mail, opens his arms and says, “Then come give your dad a
big hug.”
