    Weekend Torture 

    Wife wants to work on the landscaping, the landscaping around the pool, and go DIY on some parts of the house.

    I kinda like relaxing, swimming, playing with the kids, riding my bike… Maybe messing with my online marketing… Having friends over for barbeque… There’s a reason people don’t invite each other over for a session of weed pulling and wall painting.

    I actually enjoy the shopping… The digging and planting, not so much.

    Easter Bunny Evil Twin, take me away.

    Passive Income Power! 

    I enlightened my beautiful wife on the power of passive income with a timely demo.

    Turns out I had about four conversions between Friday and Sunday… They all show up via CB stats on my iPhone, so on Sunday I pull up the stats and remind her: “Remember when we were out shopping on Friday? We made that. Remember when we were working on the yard? We made that much.”

    This may seem like an obvious exercise, but it works wonders.

    Pulling the Plug on my Wired Subscription 

    After ten years on uninterrupted subscription to Wired Magazine, I’m pulling the plug on it. I love the magazine, but im just too busy. The issues sit unread in their plastic baggies for weeks, and I usually manage to glimpse at an article or two before tossing it – And tossing it is what I do after learning some years back that keeping it around is a sign of procrastination.

    Ten years ago, it was a whole different world for me. Time marches on…

    I See Buyer Data 

    Something that struck me as odd is that I can see the full name of the people that buy through my affiliate ID in Clickbank. I’m seeing much more information than what I imagined spread to the four winds. Let’s see:

    1- I see the full search terms that drove the visitor, not just what I bid on.
    2- I see the mouse movements of the visitor on my site, when they left, when they came back, what they highlighted, what they clicked.
    3- I see their e-mail and name

    That’s a heck of a lot, considering that all I’m doing is acting as a go-between.

    By the way… Another conversion tonight! .. After days of dry traffic.

    But this really sucks – By the time I can dedicate some time to my site(s) I’m falling asleep. I’m getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night – I’m going for the Deluxe night tonight… Five hours!

    Something’s gotta give.

    The Grass 

    The grass *is* greener on the other side, but you have to know how to mow it or the weeds will eat you alive.

    Ended up furniture shopping yesterday. All fun. As I said, Life 2.0 is not entirely compatible with Marketer 1.0. It causes all sorts of conflicts in sub-modules.

    Internet Marketing tip #1: Don’t get a life, it sucks all of your time – but you’ll gladly give it all your time.
    Case in point, today my wife and I are playing Pengo with the furniture. Pengo involved shovin stuff around, this feels a lot like it. I think she’s makin room for Stage 2: Buy more stuff, so we have more moving pieces every time it’s rainy outside.
