Once again, here we are. Mid-day on another Saturday. Half the weekend is gone already. I am not sure what it is like where you are at, but for the last few days in New Jersey; Spring has arrived!
I would never encourage anyone to NOT read my post.
But once you are done reading, if the weather where you are at is nice, it may be time put away the computer and go outside and enjoy the weather.
Ummm. Yeah. Outside… Errrr.. it’s this thing that is “away from the computer.”
I know. I know. It may have been a while.
Let’s not dawdle, let’s get done with the list and get you out to the sunshine.
Or perhaps jealousy of the nice weather -all depending on when and where you read this.
Spring Day Grab Bag of Goodies

As you may know I am a big fan of outsourcing. A great place for to get a jump start on some small projects is Fiverr. I have been interested in fiver for a bit, as you can see from this Fiverr Video on 19 ways to grow your business with fiverr and this short Fiverr article. Well Moon shares with us some of her great personal Fiverr experiences in her own great review of Fiverr outsourcing.
Blogging is a pain in the butt. It can take a very long time to see results even after putting in what seems to be a metric ton of effort. It is no wonder people get discouraged and quit. No, I am not again claiming, “I Quit”, but I do understand why people get discouraged. Bryan tackles that issue head on with this article about things that should be considered before you quit blogging.
Hopefully many of you are using Market Samurai. For any affiliate marketers it is a nearly essential tool. This is not a MS sales pitch, but if you haven’t checked it out here is a link. To get back on point, Market Samurai is undergoing a change in the way they get backlink data that all users should be aware of.
Article Marketing is dead, long live…Article Marketing?
Mark Twain once famously said, “The news of my death has been greatly exaggerated”. I have long been a fan of article marketing. Historically it can be a great way to drive traffic. With the Panda update, creating original and quality content for your article marketing efforts seems to be something important. Is a program like Unique Article Wizard still something that is even viable?
The people AT UAW say Yes, emphatically. But on the other hand it seems that a simply reshuffled content would seem to produce some duplicate content which could cause a lot more damage than help. And of course the good people at UAW have a horse in the race. So what is the right answer?
On the other hand you could check out this UAW to BMR review and see a slightly different point of view. While you are at it you can take a gander at my Build My Rank Review and hopefully it will show you how you can really rank your articles and posts. Nuff’ said about that.
Fortunately Don Alex Quixote comes in on his sway-backed mule to tilt at the windmills of UAW, along with his trusty companion Robert Sancho Panza. Alex is conducting a 30 day article marketing challenge where he shall get a real answer to the question of the viability for article marketing (and only article marketing) using UAW and the final results on site traffic. Robert has accepted the challenging non-challenge challenge in a challenging manner.
-Whew that hurt to get out.-

Don’t Quit your Day Job! …Or wait….Is that DO Quit your Day Job?
Murray recently shocked the world with his announcement that he has quit his job and is going to be giving online work his full time attention.
Well, ”shock” might be a strong word. Maybe WAY to strong, since most of his readers knew it was coming… sometime. I guess “announced” would be a better way to put it. Anyway, Murray had a very interesting post where he laid out his plans and what he will be doing.
Brandon tells a great story of his first and last day at a job that is more in line with my personal work experience. The type of experience that makes you desire to curl into a ball on the ground and cry, “it is all so pointless”
-Dead end jobs, gotta love em’ (or leave em’)-
