I have made Internet marketing a huge part of my day. More now than ever...because I am getting prepared. See for some the web may come easy and you have no problem keeping up on things but for me sometimes I really struggle.
Struggle with my mindset, habits and most of all lack of looking at the future..it's the present so many of us focus on. I am one of those people.
The Internet is an amazing thing. It's communication, it's efficient and allows us to do more every single day.
I now order take out on line, bank on-line and pay bills on-line.
I communicate more often with my long lost friends, I educate myself, I shop and build my business.
The Internet allows me to do all of that and so much more.
I have time to talk on the phone with my friends and family.
I can spend more time with my friends and family.
Ir gives us power and freedom and much much more.
I really didn't think social networking would be so big but the Power's to Be Knew it! They understood it! They're a bunch of kids, what do they know?
Oh no, I swore when I got older I wouldn't act this way and definitely I swore to never ever think this way! But hey I hate to admit I was doing it.
Some may not agree with me but you know what, we have to change, we have to accept and we have to embrace ....technology....change...and be open.
When I started on the network I think it was June 05, 2006..not many of us...our blogging?????our comments????? I hate going back there. Beta? Can't recall. But hey I wanted to try it. As time went on... I knew I really knew...how things would eventually be.
I believed in it then and I really believe in it now. My outside experiences have really taught me that nothing and I really believe nothing gives better Search Engine Results than my good old Activerain.
Last night, I wanted to write one more post for the Problogger MyBlogLog contest but I didn't have it in me. It turns out I was in 31st place in the top 100. I was watching very closely and e-mailing back and forth with a few of the participants.
Without Activerain I would have never taken that opportunity.
Why did I think I had a shot at winning?
Honestly I didn't that was not my goal!
I read the rules and it stated the top 100 list would remain up so the public could view it.
In my mind that is all I had to do to get the benefits....the extra marketing...I did just that!
Next I received a special invite from FuelMyBlog to be in the book, "The Human Behind The Avatar"
I was really honored and excited as the community decided to send the 15% commission we would earn on each book to the charity Doctors Without Borders/ Medicins Sans Frontiers.
To me I was so flattered.
So thinking of my photo for the book. I really gave it some thought.
One of the rules was what blogging has given you and what is your blog about.
To me I tried to put in into words for some reason it did not come easy.
Blogging has given me more...more than I ever give it credit and who started this mess...for me....Activerain.
So I ask is Activerain fad or are the powers to be pioneers...in my mind...Pioneers that I struggle with.... my love hate relationship with Activerain...the ever changing Activerain....those kids...yes, they knew!
They knew they could change the face of communication..they knew they could build a community...and you know what...sometimes...I love them...sometimes...I hate them...but the truth is... in my mind I do need them. Just as Activerain has paid it forward....so I am....
This is my photo for my page.
