Making money online?

Tweet I’ve always wondered how possible it really is to make money online. Strange really considering that we are heading into 2009, marking my 15th year working in the online space. That’s right, for 15 years the internet has paid my salary, bought my cars, my house and my gadgets. Yet it’s only now that [...]

4 Sale – iphonesource.org

Tweet UPDATE 2: it’s a done deal. iPhone Source is now officially part of the Studiowhiz network – and what’s more, we are retaining Paul as a contributor (50% owner) & together we’ll drive this site forward.   UPDATE: great news – I’m in negotiation right now to bring iPhone Source into the Studiowhiz network [...]

Truth & Lies: donations online

Tweet We’re a cynical bunch aren’t we. If TV & Movies desensitize us to violence then the internet desensitizes us to charity & needs. I’ve had a couple of things happening recently that have highlighted the issues faced when wanting to or needing too raise funds online and just how hard it is becoming to [...]

Write your way to increasing traffic

Tweet I’ve mentioned before that when you want to run a blog & bring in great levels of traffic you have to devote a lot of time to sculpting the content of your blog/website. One of my issues is that I’m not a professional writer, I make no claims to being a good writer – [...]

Site traffic increasing – not always good

Tweet It seems today that websites are in a battle to get more and more traffic. I wonder sometimes if people get the message wrong? I mean really is that all it’s about? Of course traffic increases are fantastic and make a direct impact to any revenue a site, either through the online advertising, the [...]

Stop writing and increase site traffic

Tweet I thought I would try something. I’ve written quite a bit (well okay a little bit) on the site and was busy trying to promote a new post from the site each day. So I stopped, for a few days and guess what. My site traffic went up and looks to be stabilizing around [...]

It’s all in the title

Tweet I’m about to break one of my rules with this post but here goes. Once you have planned your blog, and started your blog you need to really think about the things you are going to write. Actually you’ve probably already done that so lets look at something you are probably overlooking. It’s all [...]

Kicked off TextLinkAds

Tweet Well it finally happened. Dwindling traffic finally took it’s toll – that and I blew away all my old posts. I found an email in my inbox from TextLinkAds wondering why their system couldn’t find the posts on my site. After tyring to explain that I was rebuilding the site, intending to grow traffic [...]

A better bank service

Tweet I am currently looking for solutions to managing my personal finances. I’m currently going through a number of services. Sadly many online services only support US based banks – useless for someone in NZ. www.xero.co.nz is a New Zealand service they say is suitable for personal finances. They are wrong it’s a small business [...]
