Among the many ways to promote your client or boss’s products or services online, Facebook marketing is the easiest to implement. In fact, the effectiveness of Facebook as a tool for marketing has drawn virtually all businesses to use it. After all, with millions using Facebook daily, the efforts are all worth it. All a business would need is an efficient strategy – and an experienced virtual assistant to handle it!
Suffice it to say that for a business, Facebook build credibility, increases traffic and, yes, employ a versatile marketing platform. Facebook is equipped with tools and applications that could doubly boost any business’ marketing. A good example would be the Facebook page specific for businesses and which takes place of the personal profile for individuals. So if you’re hoping to include in your portfolio an experience at Facebook marketing, then it’s important to know how it works.
First that you should note is that it’s nowhere near your daily routine at the site. It’s that times fifty times the effort, plus you must be knowledgeable at marketing. If you haven’t tried this or just have very little experience at it, the key to success would be implementing these strategies below.
Given your client/employer already has a business account at Facebook, all you would need is to go straight its daily management. If not, then you can – if you’re tasked to – create a business account for your client/employer. When you have made and activated the business account, you can make full use of a Page. Simply said, the Page is one of the many features of this social networking site where businesses can display details about products or services, promos and deals, and all others that could boost sales.
Now, the Pages aren’t at all difficult to manage even if it’s “business-ized.” In so many ways, it is like a personal profile page; and like it, it also allows others in your list to post anything on the wall. The main difference would be profile pages can be set to be viewed by selected people, even within your friends list. As for a business page setup, they come designed for companies big and small and whatever forms of businesses. There are even pages for celebrities, a line of products and many others.
So once you’ve set up the Facebook page for your client/employer’s business, it’s time to proceed to engaging with the followers. This means keeping your page wall active with updates such as product launches, discounts for the services, freebies and many others. When you post any information on the page wall, all the followers will automatically have it in their feeds as well. Thus, you are disseminating information in just a few clicks but with such large, powerful scope. I’ve come across – and learned a lot! – from Lucien Bechard’s article on very easy-to-learn strategies and they’d sure help you as well.
What you need to do next is create the profile – the integral part of any business. You can ask your client/employer how to go about it. But if you’re given a free-hand at this (and believe me, most of the time, they leave it up to their Facebook VAs!), then you can go ahead and do so. The profile must contain all the information that tells visitors and followers alike what they must know about the business. It is important to fill-up the bio area with essential details. Make sure to highlight what your client/employer’s business is all about. Also, like a credible Facebook page, provide pictures of products, business owners and others.
Apart from followers, it’s mighty important to link the Facebook pages to groups, starting particularly those that would be interested in your client/employer’s business. The make use of the events interface as well. With everything that’s going on with business such as promotions, opening of a new branch or relocation and others, get these information up on events.
Then don’t forget the all-too-powerful newsfeed. This is the best tool to keep potential customers updated about anything that the business has in store. It is also the newsfeed where you could generate information about clients’ changing preferences; at the same time, the newsfeed could provide other valuable feedback.
The Facebook Pages also comes with an advertising and analytics systems. Thus, it allows your client/employer to see through stages of progress with your work. Online businesses with Facebook Pages have also employed the feature called marketing solutions which allows updates and sharing much quicker. If you’re provided with details as to advertisements, it’s best to consult with your client/employer on how you’d run it in their business Facebook Pages. As in every specific action on managing their Pages, just ask on the specific ways to handle things. From there, all you’d need is the dedication, creativity and genuine connection so that their Pages will truly become an effective marketing platform.
From my experience, Facebook marketing doesn’t take more than an hour each day. So if you could learn and master how it works in two weeks, then you’re good to go at being a Facebook marketing VA!
Now that you know, be sure to point out to your client/employer that you could actually work on their Facebook marketing endeavors. Who knows? You might just get a raise real soon!

I’m a pretty big chess player. I remember that when I was growing up and I would see these TV shows and movies where these old men would sit around city squares and just play chess against each other. Well, I haven’t become one of those men, but I do like to play chess against my sons every now and then. We started playing again a while back and while I was playing a game I realized how beat up our old chess set is that we use. So I decided to go ahead and get a new one.
I went online to see if I could find some really good chess sets that are different than the same one. While I was online shopping for them, I ran across some info on this internet company and after I read some More info, I decided to change over our home internet service to the provider.
I did find this one chess set that is made out of pieces of recycled materials. I think that might be neat to have and be a great, green addition to our home.
You’ve probably come across virtual assistant job posting that indicates article writing task. Specifically, these job ads would say “must have experience in SEO article writing.” This means VA must fully understand the basics of search engine optimization when writing their articles.
It’s not creative writing, it’s different from content and the web copy styles of writing. Simpler put, article writing is about putting keywords and keyword phrases here and there. But it must be remembered that the structure and writing style is still of highest quality.
Most of those clients seeking SEO article writers or VA article writers would be submitting the output to article directories. But for others, these articles are actually the ones used as content, blog posts or even web copy materials for their websites. It can be said then that in most cases for VAs, SEO article writing is actually a mix of various writing platforms, as long as it contains the keywords and keyword phrases as required.
Now, how do you write articles with SEO in mind? The simplest thing to start with would be to follow the basic SEO principles. Since 2006, I’ve been using this same technique and still, all my submitted articles have been approved. So I’m sharing in here how it works.
Here are the tips to SEO article writing:
1. The keyword phrase must appear two times in the first paragraph of the articles. Placing it on the first sentence is most ideal.
2. The keywords or keyword phrases must appear more than once in subtitles.
3. Repeat usage of keyword or keyword phrases once in the second paragraph.
4. Spread the keyword or keyword phrases in other parts of the article.
5. The last paragraph must contain the same keyword or keyword phrases as well.
A good start to mastering this SEO article writing basics would be this:
1. Go to Google and type in “how to lose weight fast” then click open randomly on the search results. When you find one to five posts that actually have the keywords, read and study how they’re structured.
2. Write a 500-word own version/s and it has to use the same keywords of “how to lose weight fast.” Try writing your first 500-word article on the topic. The title or subtitles must have these same keywords as well. The keywords once in every 100 words so that means you’d integrate “how to lose weight fast five (5) times, be it in subtitles or paragraphs.
3. Of course, you must make it your own article and not just switch words with their synonyms. Create your own structure, making sure it’s logical and well-detailed. 4. Remember the basics of simple article writing or rewriting which is: keep sentences short and simple. It’s much easier to integrate the keywords and keyword phrases in shorter, simpler sentences.
5. Research if you have to. There are thousands of other resources that might just make your articles more informative and original.
6. Once you’ve completed one article, write another 500 word article on the same topic. But this time, include the keywords eight to ten times. This process will train you on how to integrate keywords into an article, and get you prepared for specific instructions for different keyword usage requirement. Some article writing projects require smaller percentage of keyword use. At the same time, this process preps you for projects with higher percentage of keywords or phrases use.
7. Bear in mind that regardless of keywords and how many times they’re used in an article, your grammar and structure matters greatly. So stick to the principle of excellent writing. Just make it your own, make it fresh and interesting.
8. Just keep practicing. Soon, you’re ready to submit applications to VA job postings that indicates “must have experience in SEO article writing”
The first question that must be answered by a web copy is this: What is the ultimate goal of my client’s website? With the answer, you get a direction of what to write. Some websites aim at getting at a purchasing traffic; some want their visitors to signup for updates, newsletters or freebies. Suffice it to say, any virtual assistant tasked at copywriting must have a deep understanding of the website’s targets, if not the whole business goal of their client.
Many website owners actually write their own copy. For them, it’s an easy task as they know their customers and possess apt marketing experience to do the specific writing. But there are online business owners that don’t have that much time to write their web copy; others aren’t as confident with their writing skills. So they need to have an experienced and excellent copywriter. To cut costs, they often hire virtual assistants with copywriting skills.
So what are the big ideas to writing an effective web copy?
1. Understand and study the customer profile. This means knowing the needs of your website visitors. Such information could be provided by your client (online business owner). It mostly includes traffic demographics, like age, gender, financial status and residency, among others. Find out more about what are the priorities of these customers, including their needs and desires. Knowing these would help you write an interesting and informative copy that pulls the targeted customers and web visitors.
2. Highlight the benefits. A good tip to presenting the advantages of products and services is making a quick-read copy. Customers don’t have time for long, verbose content, more so with a copy which they know is an effort to make them buy! So you must indicate the benefits presented in the most brief, concise and unique ways. The idea here is to give visitors a quick understanding of the benefits they will get from what the site sells. It should be the same way if your client targets building a larger traffic.
3. Make a hard-hitting selling position. These are a few sentences that encapsulate the edge of your client’s business; it is composed of phrases that make their offered product or service way different and above all others. Otherwise known as the unique selling position (USP), it must be the first thing that website visitors see when they land on the page. At the same time, it must be powerfully written so that the selling position sticks to their psyche.
4. Make sure the search engine loves the copy. An effective copy is one that has keywords that are likely searched, not just by visitors but the big and smaller search engines alike. To ensure this, be aware of your client’s keywords. As a virtual assistant, you might be tasked at doing the research as well. These keywords are then included in the meta tags, file names and links to keep the search engine coming.
5. Use a personal writing tone. Remember reading a copy that seemed to be talking to a scientist? You definitely didn’t want to read more although you wanted the product, right? What makes a powerful copy is one that talks from the heart. So make sure you write in a personal, informal and fun manner. The copy that seems to be your bestfriend talking is much more effective than your high school grammar teacher. Believe me!
6. Mind the copy structure and content. An inverted pyramid structure always works wonders for readers. Have the headings and subheadings provide priority information, and then support them with a few more lines. Simple, organized sentences are the way to go for an effective copy. Never be wordy for it turns off readers; don’t put any fuzz because it just confuses the readers. And then lastly, be serious with your editing and proofreading. You’d want to produce an effective copy and your client wouldn’t want their website looking unprofessional.
So that’s about it! Jumpstart your copy writing skills now. Spend an hour or two of this day studying websites and assess their copy writing. At the end of it, you’d know which have effective copies and which ones need improvements.
Hello peeps! Yes, it’s been a few days. Actually, this post’s working title was Assessment, Planning and Action: My Personal Process To My Ultimate Goal. I’m a sucker for long titles. That needed to be changed. As in many other aspects of my virtual and real life.
So after a spiritual retreat, a few more days of insisting and hours of emotional internal debate, Ruzanne gave in. Yay to the sound part of me! Finally, I gave in to seating back and revisiting my goals. There really was a need to keep things in check, I admitted. Things were just all over the place, even my phone contacts I cannot recognize anymore!
So I just had to level off with me. Hence, the calm seas… the quiet nights of football and talkshows… even old movies that suck over at HBO. The period meant an assessment of how far I’ve gone with my personal goals as an online worker. It had to be done because of the terrible overload which took its toll on my virtual life and productivity.
The evaluation included: (a) what do I really want for myself as blogger, virtual assistants team leader and mom, (b) what can I continue to do for others who want to become VAs or find VAs, (c) what to do about the three pieces of gold I recently found (read: awesome content and article writers!) and (d) whether I should pursue other means of generating income for this blog.
For (a) the answer is quite obvious. I want to continue blogging because writing is my passion. Then I’ll just be available for my Angels because, thank heavens! they’re doing so great at their projects. Couldn’t ask for more, really. As for being a mom, there’s that new-found confidence that I could actually make things better if I just did online writing and simpler VA-related stuff. It turned out that the more pressure I got from work, the less time I spent with my little and big boys.
As for (b) this blog answers it all. I want to continue blogging so I could help out new and wannabe VAs. Also, my experience as a project or team leader has proven very helpful for a few people who want to expand their service from mere VA to something bigger. Then, of course, I’d like to still be here for people who need to make hire-a-VA process sure and simple.
Next, what to do with (c) the online writers I’ve discovered recently. They’re so brilliant that I could just cry. All these writers are like Midas with whatever material you’d give them. But there limitations brought to the table. All three are also with day jobs. But they do have 2-4 hours each day to produce excellent quality results. Be it articles, blog posts, content, product reviews and all that. I don’t wanna lose them; there has to be a way to get things going for these guys and girl! Hah, the hazards of online writing. Some don’t want others to have regular jobs or other gigs; some don’t pay very good. Plus, there are those who just want a few articles here and there, nothing regular. These brilliant writers just need to have steady sidelines so they could perfect various online writing. I wanna be there for them.
Now on to, (d)… I will NOT be aspiring for this blog to be profitable. At least not in the sense that my time will be eaten up by studying how to put ‘em up money-making stuff in here. No, siree! Thanks for all the suggestions – taken well or otherwise – but making money isn’t among the top things-to-do for the next year or so. Being that, I have decided not to push through with the ebook as well. It was intended to a be a product for sale from here. But it just didn’t feel right. I want to help out that asking – and getting – for even $1.00 for it just won’t make me any happier. So what’s gonna happen is found below… Surprise, surprise. I hope you can then tell me that the best things in life really are free!
With assessment done and the process ending with a smile on my face, here’s my plan for the next few months.
(1) I will continue to blog – consistently and deeply – about VA-hood and what goes on around it. With my collected and prepared write-ups previously intended for the ebook, you can expect really powerful posts about becoming a VA. Actually, this is the surprise. Well, are you surprised? Hmm. I don’t blame you.
(2) I will get another page in here where people could pay for one or two articles as needed. In there, anyone can just indicate what article, content or blog posts they want prepped for them. They provide website, contact information and stuff like that. After 48 hours, their orders will be delivered and then pay for them. That simple. It provides regular gigs (fingers crossed now!) for the Oh!Some writers in the bunk. Plus, it gives me happy work as an editor! Yahoo!
(3) I will connect more with my online friends; read more of their blogs; Tweet some more; make use of Facebook – the usual stuff we bloggers need to strut. In fact, I had to help myself from putting this on top. Because I’m so open and curious, connecting to people is among my favorite rewards. Upon evaluation, I only do it when there’s an overload or a need to de-stress. Why, I should intentionally connect as opposed to selective connection, right? Do I hear you, Eugene and Theresa?
Along this line, I will do guest posting as well as prep interviews for online service providers, freelance writers and VAs from all over. It will help others learn more about what we do. Whew, sharing is an overwhelming but very rewarding effort, as I’ve come to discover these past year. I’d like to do more of that online.
That’s as far as my online life goes. Six hours a day max. Just 4 hours on Saturdays and Sundays. The rest of the hours each week, I will be a mother and a wife. Maybe spend like 2-3 hours being a sister. Definitely put in 4 hours each weekend as a daughter. And yes, did I mention the rediscovered love for brisk walking?
OK, on to more plans for momma-hood. I will prepare breakfast and cook lunch everyday; also cook dinner three times a week and learn how to take criticisms from my hubby and sons about it. Definitely, I won’t use their disapproval and sometimes “meal time jokes” as a reason that I won’t cook. Or strive to learn better dishes.
In sum, I will be a better mom. To do that, I must be a happy and healthy person – online or not. Assessment done; planning completed. Now on to action!
After just a few months at BlogFrog, I’ve spent like every day connecting with the people there. My friends are mostly with the mommies, and some grandmas and aunties and even all-the-single-ladies. So I’m kinda hooked. Really. I’m spending more time at BlogFrog more than on Twitter and Facebook accounts.
At the “pond” – as I call it, there are real, fun, interesting, zany, cool and intelligent people and more. Everyone wants to be connected in there – and they genuinely want to stay connected. While for some being at BlogFrog is about marketing, promotion and business stuff, I’m like there because I love the peeps there! Next to visiting my favorite blogs, I should say the “pond” is my next best thing to relax.
Well, OK… I’ve tallied just a few benefits about being a BlogFrog member. Nowhere near the a-little-less-than-a-million prior claim. But believe me. When you’re an active member, it would feel like there really is that much benefits! Like Cheryl and Leanne (great mom bloggers!) who wrote something awesome about BlogFrog, I am just so appreciative of the site. But I’ve gotten just halfway to optimizing the good stuff that BlogFrog could offer. Allow me, however, to enumerate the things I like, gained, learned, appreciated and loved about it.
1. It’s FREE! Yes, peeps… no membership fees, service fees, fees, fees, fees. Nobody likes them although I bet, if you’d want to invest on something… Hmm. Another story. But really. BlogFrog is free and yet after a few months, I’ve made solid friendships. That’s a guaranteed 10 plus visitors on my website per day! Yahoo! It’s building a following, generating traffic back to your website and voila! Of course, you could opt for the Platinum or Premium membership fees – very minimal and yet I’m begging my hubby still! Ughs!
2. You can build a community… and they’re instant followers, readers, leads and whathaveyous. For the real savvy ones, you could even customize your community in so many ways. Others have integrated their community to their websites so that their followers can freely get connected with each other. I’ve got to hand it to the girls back there… they’ve come to that. As for me, I’m the stubborn “not-into-techie” gal who’d rather ogle at lovely sites. Alas, am not so gifted and motivationally-challenged when it comes to anything technical. LOL!
3. The mom-potential is so huge at BlogFrog. As we moms know, mom bloggers work double time – think over 50 thousand moms and their power to over 6 million influence over other moms all over the world! Oh, OK. That’s a long-shot. But it’s a shot that moms make because they always go the extra mile, right? I should know. *wink*
4. It’s good for business. Well, maybe not for me but all the rest of the bloggers out there, man! They’re doing so good! Their community and genuine following are just so supportive I could cry. And so a lot of the members at BlogFrog are actually earning from advertising on their community pages.
Hmmm. I counted like 17 benefits that BlogFrog have done for me and others from the “pond.” If you’re a member, do share your experienced benefits with being at BlogFrog. That would be real cool!
DON’T let DARREN ROWSE get to you!
I’ve been a victim. A very willing, excited victim to his awesome business and blogging ideas. With the latest newsbreak that will hit us all in two or three hours, there’s just one thing to say…
You see… whatever’s going on with the guy just gets me hyped up. For the longest time, I’ve been a fan of Darren Rowse. Even before this website came into being, the ProBlogger site has been what others’ Twitter addiction is to me – often visited, bookmarked, ogled and sometimes envied for the frenzy in there.
Crazily, I’d tell my friends someday I’d be as famous as Darren. And yeah, that my site will become the as great. I even wanted a sticker of ProBlogger on everything I own, except that the hubby reminded me everything at our home is conjugal property. And he wanted Dirk Nowitzki’s face all over our stuff. So I gave in. The best I could do was subscribed to the site via RSS. It felt like a movie teaser. That’s how much I idolized the man and his works.
So it was a great achievement of sorts when I finally became an affiliate. This post is about that – supposed to be. Telling you about another wonderful way to “rake profits through your blogs” is how this was supposed to be.
So I warn you. Because I have this feeling that once you’ve popped into Darren’s wisdom and marketing skills, you just can’t stop. Don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you!
Because really… Darren Rowse is at it AGAIN!
So if you’re into blogging or you want your business to have blogs that are gonna be awesome traffic generators, the one thing to go is ProBlogger. You’ll soon become an awesome blogger yourself. But best of all, you’ll rake cash when you get that blog page into your business website.
Wait no longer… just click below to get your biz soaring!
The stringent competition among online service providers just got meaner. More and more people have discovered the benefits of being a virtual assistant; now they’re sparkling as newbies! Even more are venturing into providing online services, much of which are about VA work, with specialization in a particular task.
Now, why am I writing this? It’s to serve as a wake-up call that if you don’t double your efforts or learn a truly important task very fast, you won’t find gigs at all!
Thankfully, there are tried-and-proven effective ideas on how to stay on top of your game. As a VA, you can stay useful to clients and not worry about long periods of not working. Here’s seven ways to be always be productive as a virtual assistant.
1. Set healthy targets. The common mistake of newbie VAs is they take on more jogs or gigs than they could handle. Don’t aim for the bucks you get after two weeks. It’s not healthy and it would drain you after a month. Instead, set health targets. For example, work for hours in the morning; work another four hours in two blocks. That way, you remain focused and energized to accomplish things. Don’t push yourself to work more than eight hours a day. It’s best to work two part-time jobs or just one full-time VA job. Otherwise, you get tired after a few hours and fail your clients so.
2. Put on extra minutes. I like to highlight getting to work before it’s time to work. Like working ahead of your boss’ expected schedule. Why? Because you’ll be prepared and relaxed with what comes ahead. This isn’t just achieved by working ahead, but it’s the same with putting in extra hours after work. You get to review your work, you have time to learn something new and get things organized for what comes later.
3. Have an organized activity list. For everyone else, it’s called the daily to-do list. As for me, I have the weekly schedule of activities where deadlines and tasks are highlighted. The routines are kept on track and they’re simple crashed out when done. When you accomplish tasks, there’s a sense of achievement as well as knowing the extra time earned. Then you could do advance work on future tasks now. You can develop your to-do list preparation here.
4. Manage your tasks wisely. A virtual assistant doesn’t have just one task. Most of the time, it’s a combination of writing, research and office administration or customer service. Make sure you don’t jump from one to the next and on to another one. Instead, classify these tasks according to urgency and amount of time they require. Do the harder tasks on your “productive hours” and save the easier routines on more relaxed moments of the work day. Also, I’d suggest using HiTask. Suggest this very simple yet efficient project management tool to your boss. It keeps both of you on track and no flurry exchange emails are needed.
5. Seek – and accept – feedback. After a few weeks of not getting feedback, I’d be in panic. Was my work good enough? Do I need to improve in some areas? Even if my clients don’t have the habit of providing feedback, I seek it. The kinder ones don’t usually voice them out and are tolerant of minor mistakes. But still, seek criticisms – and accept them as your way of growing. Whatever forms of feedback, it will help you become a better VA.
6. Don’t be distracted. The activities that don’t contribute to your growth and production are a waste of time. But these distractions that I call “hungry-blobs” are often the most attractive part of the day. Read: Facebook, Twitter, checking emails, surfing, etc. Other forms would be objects on your desk and work station that pulls your away from focus. Discipline yourself to stay away from all these distractions. That way, you can put a 100% excellent output.
7. Have a break. As my husband would say, what good is three hours of reading and writing if tomorrow you’ll get migraines! Or worse, you strain your eyes so bad you cannot work more than 2 hours a day. Give yourself a healthy break after an hour. Walk away from the PC and drink a healthy fruit juice. Or stretch your body to refrain from getting those bagging back aches. Go outside at the middle of the work day and get a breeze of fresh air. These “breaks” would re-energize you sufficiently to go on working productively. Summing all these up would be Mike Vardy’s short but perfect article. And so suitable for us, online workers!
You’re not expected to master all seven ways to become better as a virtual assistant. But by and by – and with consistency and love for yourself, you can become more productive at work. And remember, employers like that kind of a worker. Who knows, they might just hand-out productivity bonus even it it’s not in the contract, huh?
Just do your job well and take serious note of these seven ways. You’re then good to go and stay tall and proud even with the growing competition.
In a few hours, it will be June 7. My good friend Stuart Stirling will be a year older – and a few years wiser. I’m filled with gratitude for our connection. Or as the hubby says, “Your mother instinct strikes at any time! You think everyone younger than you is your kid!” Of course, my concern for Stu goes beyond the tragedy that hit Japan in March. I’m just thankful things are well for him, the lovely wife Keiko and adorable Chino. Happy birthday, Stuart!
Then there’s the nameless angel who got me into all these. No, I don’t mean that meanly, you! I just want to thank you again for believing in me, for starting me up as an online service provider, and for hating me enough to leave me on my own two feet. Just be well and healthy, nameless angel. You know I love you while I look for the other shoe to complete Louisiana.
To my Oh!SomeAngels who patiently learned and finally loved what they do. I appreciate your efforts. More than that, I am so touched by your patience, resilience and support. My ebook wouldn’t have been finished if you kept bugging me for help 🙂 Also, I’m so proud of you, guys! In a matter of six or seven months, you’re earning your keep, with very little to do with me. You make our clients happy, you make me happy.
But most of all, to the Oh!SomeAngels, you helped me gain that feeling of having done something good. Look at you, guys! You’ve become “silent masters” of what you do! It was just last week I discovered, you’re all working and I was just floating amongst waters of the writer’s dream, motherhood, hyperventilation and loving other peoples’ blogs! Still, you independently worked on your own. Often I felt left out. And recently, I discovered it’s me who’s out of work! Because I don’t call a ten-hour online work that. LOL! Guys, I love you all. Pasta Thursday?
While at it, I’d like to thank the people who kept my last three months fun. Or kept me from the opposite pole while I struggled with the ebook writing. For starters, my girl, Theresa of BigFishTopDogs.com who regularly provides thought-provoking insights. More than the break from my routines, her site is my coffee shop and mind spa. When I feel the need to re-energize and not be swayed by trivialities, there’s little bro Derek Potocki. What’s in his site are down-to-earth reminders of how I should go about this journey of life as a whole. Oh, the sibling thing is one-sided still. Derek hasn’t signified interest on an evil stepsister me. LOL! It’s fine, little bro.
Funny. When the past three months were the most tumultuous in my (ehem!) online career – ever! It was also the time I’ve come across people whose wisdom and love for life got to me! Well, the heavens have a play on that, no argument. But still, I’d like to express my thanks for kind King of Ties Jk Allen of the Hustler’s Notebook – man, you rock! Because of that, I give you the ebook for free. LOL!
And to the others who I follow – and then become recipients of my attempts at goofiness (Do I hear a sound of disagreement at the word attempts?) like Daniel Wood; Stuart of the UnlockTheDoor venue where my profoundness is normal -appreciate it, kid! To you, Christian who’s not just a smart boy but a really generous spirit, your act is something that made me believe…
Then there’s Sales Lion Marcus Sheridan who I think doesn’t know me yet. ‘Cuz if he did, he’d know I’m a meerkat in the kingdom he growls at regularly. LOL! But really, Lion… you’ve got loads of stuff in there that’s making my mind obese!
There’s more fun stuff I get from Bloggess. It provokes me every now and then to get something a 100% bad-ass. And for saner stuff that’s closely related to my needs, Erica Allison, everyone at Ms.CareerGirl.com and my good friends from the same merry pond at BlogFrog – thank you guys! Errr, girls…
Yeah, I know I missed a few out. It’s not because I forgot you or have relegated you somewhere you’d take offense. I have something else coming after this so don’t delete me from your friends list. LOL!
Before I end…. scroll down, several paragraphs more, eh? Weren’t you told… ? LOL! Big hugs, a million kisses and a universe of love to my dear husband and our wonderful boys. Thanks for making it much less a struggle for me. Yes, dear ones… if this goes good, we’re going on our dream adventure… all five of us. No, Josef… Bauer and your toys stay at home! Dogs and toys aren’t easy to handle on long trips, honey. And yeah, no TV, too. Poor toddler.
OK, so what’s this about? After three months… the ebook is FINALLY done. It’s not something that would get me a Nobel but it’s definitely something I’m super proud about. The next step is to get it out. Hopefully, it won’t take another three months before that happens.
So again, THANKS to all of you.
Now I’m on to job hunting because I have nothing much to do. 🙂
Yes, the beggar’s button is here again.
Your help would finally get me somewhere… such as getting the ebook out.
All that processes! I didn’t know much, huh? I thought after I write it would just
appear with a dainty cover where my face is plastered all over. Alas, that ain’t so.
But I’ll get there. In the meantime, job hunting takes up like 43.97% of my time. LOL!
Thanks, guys. I don’t wanna end up having the Oh!SomeAngels dole-out some of their pay!
