Over the years, I’ve become online friends with a number of people from all over the world, so I guess it shouldn’t be such a shock when I occasionally stumble upon someone in my own back yard. A perfect example is a nice lady named Deborah Bowman, aka dmbunny on our forums who posted the common Hello, I’m a Newbie thread on her first visit with us back in November. As fate would have it, she lives nearby and just happened to find our boards. We’re happy to have her on the forums and she’s a prime example of how […]

Bumping into a neighbor on the net

This one is a more standard phishing scam hoping your go to the website and enter some personal info. I would recommend not visiting the url as these scam phishing expedition often link to sites that will infest your computer with viruses, trojans, worms, and any other thing these malevolent criminals can come up with.

We offer business loans up to $1,000,000

Well, it’s one of the lowball offers that we all receive daily in our inbox, so maybe it’s legit. 😆 If only there were a real way to get rid of this garbage on the net. It just seems so hard to believe that some will fall for these things.

During my hiatus from the world of internet marketing, the autoresponder service that I had been using closed down. One of my first priorities in getting back into the swing of things was finding a suitable replacement that was capable of handling what I wanted to do with newsletters and marketing for the multiple websites I run. There are so many different choices out there that it can be overwhelming. Afterlooking around at the various responders and visiting several forums reading the vast array of opinions on each one, I finally settled on AWeber for my needs. AWeber has been […]

Many of us are chasing the internet money making dream.  A rare few of us will ever attain that dream.
