Hashtags

#Hashtags Until recently, I never thought of #hashtags as any more than a way to categorize my posts. #hashtags do that but I am realize that they do more. #hashtags were first used in 2007 on Twitter. Because Twitter only allowed 140 characters at the time, the idea was to use words prefaced with a ‘#’ (octothrope) as a way to group tweets. This idea came from a web marketing specialist, Chris Messina. Since that very simple beginning, #hashtag use has grown and grown. #hashtags are now used in virtually…

IAmAlive-Day7

I Am Alive Challenge – Day 7 Day 7 of the IAmAliveChallenge for me and still going strong. The group is growing but not as fast as I thought it would. I wonder if people think it is some kind of affiliate marketing program. I know personally there are a lot of people who are afraid to make a video. I was one of those people. I think I am beginning to understand why so many people enjoy doing vlogs or streaming instead of blogs. It is much easier to…

I Am Alive Challenge Day 5 Click here is to see the day 5 video for the IAmAliveChallenge Three things I am putting on my to do list with high priority.

IAmAliveChallenge-Day4

I Am Alive Challenge – Day 4 I just realized that my last 2 posts never posted. I have no idea what happened to them. I remember saving drafts while I was writing them. I remember previewing them and I remember publishing them. But nothing. A few minutes ago I lost the start of this post right after I saved the draft. They are nowhere to be found. You can bet I will copy this post before I get out of it. (I just tried saving and it never told…

IAmAlive Challenge

I Am Alive Challenge I have missed quite a few days blogging. The first couple of days I just couldn’t think of anything to write about. Trying come up with some ideas, I managed to find several ‘rabbit holes’ that just consumed my days. I kept telling myself ’10 more minutes’ and a couple of hours later, I would still be there. I want to thank @flaxz for ending mental funk and getting me back on track with his great new ebook ‘I Am Alive’. I saw @flaxz ebook in…

Any CTP member who has not taken advantage of this training, is only hurting themselves. I…

I Need The Internet’s Opinion

This post is going to be short. I finished my video landing page and I would like to get everyone’s opinion whether or not the landing page I just created is good enough to actually use.

So please be honest in your comments as to the page’s value. Thank you. ==> Affiliate Marketing PhD at ClickTrackProfit <== I have…

Better at Sunset than I was at Sunrise

Better at sunset than I was at sunrise. Any of you who have listen to or read posts by @jongolson have probably heard him use that phase. If you could say that everyday of your life, you would die a very wise and knowledgeable person. For me personally, I have had many days when that wasn’t true and there have even been days when the exact opposite is true. Today, while frustrating, qualifies as a day when I do know more tonight than I did this morning. I spent the…

Buzzy Day At The Hive

From everything I read in different posts the flight from Steem to the Hive seemed to be pretty uneventful. I only read about a couple of minor glitches. Of course my knowledge of what was going on is all but non-existent, so they could have been major glitches and I wouldn’t know. But they way they were described in the posts, they were not a big deal I stayed away from Steem and the Hive yesterday on purpose. I didn’t even submit a post. (I justified missing a day because…
