I haven’t updated this blog for a long time, partly because I’ve been up to my ears in work on other projects that are my bread and butter. Writing in here feels a little frivolous, but since it’s “my place” online, I suppose I had better bring it up to date.
Times are exciting right now.
I don’t write much about family life online because I like to keep it private, but I can reveal that after 18 years on this mortal plane, out old dog Ronnie finally gave up the ghost a few months ago, about a year after our other one, Daisy left us aged 16. Old dogs they were and we miss them a lot.
But at the end of September we got a puppy from a rescue place near Malaga and she has slotted right in. her name is Mia and she was actually born in the rescue centre and we got to meet her and fell in love with her right away. Our daughter loves her to bits too.
OK, so that’s as much personal stuff as I’m giving out here.
Musically, the band are going from strength to strength with both myself and guitarist Brad in full creative mode writing lots of new songs. Our set is almost entirely made up of original songs now, although we still play a few covers at our gigs to keep the crowd happy. We must be doing something right because we have a pretty strong following from the local biker crowd with connections in Germany, Belgium and right up into Scandinavia.
You can take a look at one of our older videos from 2012 in this post: Some Fun Music
We are currently recording a CD of a selection of our songs that we’ll be selling at gigs and online via my latest music website at webmusicstar.com. The plan is to release a couple of tracks onto iTunes and see if it generates any interest.
So what am I up to in my line of work?
I’m focused on a few newer websites in different niches, creating lots of good content and building links the right way (not the old pre-2012 way) which is a process that I’m keeping to myself because its working and I’m not about to give away information that is making me money for others to come along and muscle in on my success.
I’m sure there are still plenty of “gurus” that will sell you their latest greatest proven plan and maybe it will help you. I can’t really say. But what I can say is that if you want to get into this business (SEO + affiliate marketing) you need to do a lot of testing for yourself to see what works and what doesn’t. I don’t follow anyone, I just test my own stuff and follow what works.
I’m still an active member of Dave’s “Pond” which is the only forum you’ll find me on these days, but not if you’re not a member. It’ll cost you $10 a month to join http://pond.zenduck.me if you want. If not, don’t.
That’s all for now. Consider this site up to date!
