However I have just read a blog post by Mike Long who is someone who I have known online for a long time, and I really want to draw attention to the post and encourage you to read it.
Mike has been very successful online and when I started I really looked up to him and what he was doing. He was at the forefront of the PLR article business and has written the best book about article marketing ever…period!
Mike then disappeared and no one really knew what happened to him.
Several months ago (probably nearer a year) he reappeared in the WpGoldmine forum and we started chatting , (he has been a member there since before he dropped from sight) his story was fascinating and a lesson to everyone working online.
A few weeks a go I wrote a blog post about why you should set up your own personal blog. In that blog post I wrote;
A personal blog helps to keep you focused and make you accountable to yourself and your readers, and future readers.
I have also talked at length about being transparent and honest and open.
Without a doubt Mike has taken this to heart and has produced a new blog and a blog post to rival any I’ve seen.
Look guys, I am going to say this again and continue to say it until you listen. It’s people like mike who you should be reading and subscribing to, not some “wanna be” Frank Kern who’s idea of internet marketing is to email you every day with the latest offer from his Wanna be Frank Friends.
People like Mike provide more value, advice and guidance that you’ll find in 9 out of 10 products.
Follow what they are doing and saying and you will succeed on line .
You can go and read Mikes latest post here On Failure And Bouncing Back , do me a favor don’t skim it, read it, you’ll learn some very valuable lessons about success and failure.
By supporting bloggers/marketers like Mike and others who are open and honest we can all help bring a fresh new outlook to Internet Marketing and show the money grabbers and scammers that there is another way.
You can do your part in 2 simple ways that won’t take any effort.
If you read a post you like and the writer is being open and honest and providing value just:
A) Leave a comment, (you’ll even get a link back if you use your real name! unless your parents really called you Kitchen Aid Mixer always use your name!) comments help bloggers know they are on the right track or if they got it totally wrong!
B) Share it! Tweet it, Like it , pass it on using whatever method you prefer. Help the good guys rise above the crap we are subjected to daily… Please!
That’s it off for a bath, go read mikes article, but not before you’ve shared this one!
