It seems that everyone and their brother have a post about how life is a journey, you have to enjoy the journey, the journey is the thing, not the destination. Journey, journey, journey.


I’m sick of them. I’m sick of everyone reiterating all the same nonsense without any real explanations on how to enjoy the friggin’ journey.

You know the ones right? They tell you that you have to stop and smell the roses, or take a moment to reflect on the things that are important to you. But you know what they don’t do? They don’t ever give you the tools on how to do that.

It’s the same with all these internet marketing “gurus”. (self-styled as gurus by the way, that’s why i’m only giving them a small “g”. so there)

They go on and on about how you can make bizzillions of dollars on the internet. Their “free” videos are full of such rhetoric as “It’s so easy! If you’re not doing it it’s because you’re lazy and weak” or other such drivel designed to tap into your insecurities about providing for your family or being successful.

I think the thing that annoys me the most about these sorts of sites is that they promise wealth, freedom and, by association, happiness beyond your wildest expectations but they really tell you nothing.

Now, I’m not planning on using this blog to continually sing the praises of Melanie Milletics but I am going to do it on this post…again…and I’ll tell you why.

Yesterday I posted “Mel Milletics is my new BFF” and it was a big hit. In fact, by mentioning her name in the title I upped my readership by about 500% yesterday. (thanks Google analytics for tracking that for me :)

I posted my blog entry on Facebook and on Twitter and BAMB! Traffic!

Melanie read my post too! :) Like I said, she’s pretty awesome.

Wanna know what her only comment was? Do you? I bet you do? (look, I can write seductive sales copy too!!!)

She was concerned because I had not included my affiliate link so that I could benefit from the traffic that I had just driven to my blog.

Maybe I’m not making myself clear here. She actually gives a shit that this post I wrote about her, because I’m so impressed with her ability to make me feel like I’m going to be really successful and help me conquer that nasty-assed little voice in my head, was not taking advantage of the traffic.

Umm, I think that’s pretty amazing.

It was definitely a rookie mistake to not include an affiliate link from here to there. I think that anyone who is, even a little bit, interested in internet marketing ought to check out her sponsoring success site.

Here’s my affiliate link. If you want to check it out, go through me and we’ll keep track of the millions I make! ┬áha ha.

Be gentle, as this is my first kick at the affiliate can.


Also, before the end of the day I will be posting on why reading the stuff from Mel is how I built this site…In 4 hours. (but i’ll get into more detail. sometimes it’s a curse to type so quickly!)
