It’s early New Year’s Eve here in New Jersey.  The end of the day brings to close my first official calendar year of blogging.  So I’d thought it would be appropriate to list what I consider to be the best posts from the last 12 months.  And to keep with the theme for the day, we’ll do things “countdown style”: [click to continue…]

Today I have a great guest post courtesy of Ryan Renfrew.  For those of you who’ve read my posts in the last few weeks, Ryan is the “apprentice” I picked for my case study to improve traffic to a blog.  The main reason I selected Ryan was because he has LOTS of passion for his niche.  As you’ll see in the following article…

Happy Sunday to everyone!  I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas.  I know I did.  No “White Christmas” here, but it sounds like I am in for a “white” December 26th, with 18-24 inches coming according to the TV weather guys.  Of course, this likely means we will get nothing, or it will rain.  If I ever quit the Internet biz, I think I want to be a weatherman, it would be fun to “guess the weather.”

Have you ever been to a retirement party? Not to sound cliché, but they’re usually thrown for people in their sixties who want to play golf every day or buy a condo at the beach now that their working days are over. I’m not really big on golf and I already live at the beach, but having the chance to take it easy for awhile and do something I’ve always wanted to do is definitely appealing. I recently took a 7-month trip through Europe for that reason.
