Comments Are Back On

I've decided to re-activate the comments portion of my blog.

To cut down and prevent spam headaches  I originally turned off commenting back when the blog was quite new. 

I decided to turn comments back on to make the blog more interactive.  With the combo of the Askimet and Captcha plug-ins, I think it's worth another shot. 

Lynn Terry’s Blog

ClickNewz Internet Marketing BlogI've been following ClickNewz for a few months now an I have to say that I really enjoy her posts.  It seems that Lynn Terry is constantly on the prowl for new and useful information, and she has no problem delivering the goods either.

Whether it's affiliiate marketing, seminars, traffic tips, or recommendations on the newest thing, you'll find it there.  Her down to earth and informative writing style makes for an interesting read, even on subjects that I may not have much interest in.  That's a talent that either comes naturally, or takes a long time to develop.  I would venture to guess that in her case it comes naturally.

Coincidentally, we use the same PressCut WordPress theme.  I just happen to like the theme and apparently she does too.  This site and ClickNewz are in no way related to each other, although I have been influenced by some of her layout ideas.

Lynn Terry has been around in the internet marketing arena for a while and has a definite presence on the web.  She also has her own marketing forum and the members are quite friendly.  I have to admit that I've only been a "lurker" at the selfstarters… forum, but I'll come out from under my rock soon.

I would have to say what impresses me most is her ability to come up with so much useful information on every aspect of internet business.  It's obvious that she puts a lot of time into her research.

Whether you're a serious marketer, just thinking about getting started, or somewhere in between, I would highly recommend adding Lynn Terry to your list of 'must read' websites.  My blogroll is very short because there are very few that I will recommend, but for what its worth, Lynn Terry will top that short list.

The Ultimate Blogging Course For Marketers

how to make a web blogThe Ultimate Blogging Course For Marketers has been released!  The blogging course is made up of 19 videos which are designed to take a raw beginner by the hand and step you through each process of creating your own blog using WordPress.

The course starts out with a "blogging 101" video that explains what blogging is and how it benefits you as an internet business person to have one.  Next you move on to setting up your own domain.  This video can be skipped if you already have a domain or know how to set one up.  If you're brand new to the internet marketing arena, this is a very handy video to show you how to get your domain and web host set up. 

After that you get into the meat of the course with downloading and installing wordpress.  I even walk you through the process of creating the MySQL database.  This is probably the single most intimidating factor for the newbie.  The newbie may find this worth the price of admission by itself!

Next we choose a theme and set it up to give the blog a more professional look.  This video is followed by those that cover installing plug-ins, installing using widgets, making your first blog post, and setting up a capture form for email subscribers.  The capture form videos start with signing up for your auto-responder account through, setting up your auto-responder, and installing the form to your blog.

The next area covered is creating a logo for your site.   This is all done using open source software.  In other words, FREE software!  I didn't see any sense in using Photoshop or Macromedia Fireworks because I didn't want new marketers to be left out in the cold if they didn't own one of these fine, but pricey products.  I show you how to get and download the software, and take you step by step through creating the logo!

Finally, in the last video, I tweak and refine the blog for its final look.  The internet business blog that is created in the blogging course is  The domain name was purchased during the creation of the video as was the entire blog.  Everything that you see in the blog including the blog posts from May 14th, 2007 was created entirely in the video course.  The July 15th Sales Letter Post was created after words of course.

If you're new to the game of blogging and want to take it to the next level but never knew how to really do it right, then here's your chance.  Check out the Ultimate Blogging Course now!
