It’s been a while since the last Saturday Update, and, quite possibly, many of my readers will be glad that I decided to take my time before posting a new one. The last few updates have been very doom and gloom. I have no issue admitting that. I have been very negative, sad and pessimistic; most likely, anyone who was thinking about a blogging career may have given up upon reading my last three rants. I don’t regret writing them though. I promised that I will be hundred percent honest with all readers of my blog, and by showing my true feelings I have kept up with that promise. Doing otherwise would make me no better than the thousands of fake, money-making gurus who are out there after our money. This project is nowhere near where I thought it would be six months after starting it out. That and several other issues I had during the holidays put me in a state of depression. A successful businessman’s job is to overcome obstacles, however, not to cry over his failures. It’s time to let go the mistakes of the past and look to the future. That is what I thought and what I started doing two weeks ago, after my last weekly update. Here is what I did in the past two weeks. Mysteries Revealed in This Update!
Here is an idea that has been floating for a while in my head, since I created this momentous list of money-earning websites a few weeks ago. One of the sites that I tested out myself is 99designs. As I said in that article, I love the site primarily for its educational value. Artists compete with each other and only one winner gets picked. It’s a bit like the movie Highlander: In the end there will be only one left. No heads are cut fortunately, but only the best artist gets picked and earns the cash. The prizes are quite consistent. We’re talking about a $99–$200 payout, for a job, which in most cases takes ten minutes to complete! The competition, however, is fierce. In the contest I took part in a few weeks ago, there were about forty artists fighting for the prize and over four hundred designs were submitted. While this is a fun and instructive activity, getting paid once every four-hundred jobs done is not very practical. Taking ten minutes to complete each job means sixty-seven hours of work. Now divide $135 by sixty-seven hours. This implies an hourly rate of $2. It will be even less if the quality of our work is below average, and slightly more if it is above average. All isn’t lost, though. Let’s take a closer look at this method of making money online, and see if we can combine it with others to make it more effective than ever! Check Out This One!
Things change up quickly in the blogosphere. Methods that used to work amazingly well yesterday no longer do the job today. A link-building technique, which is king now, may lead to a penalty tomorrow. That is why it is crucial to stay in touch with the most recent developments for anyone who intends to develop a successful money-making website. However, a newcomer may not have sufficient knowledge to start on the right foot. Here are thirty-one up-to-date tips to get into blogging with correct tools and a focused mindset.

Good morning, everybody … or whatever time it is when you’re reading this. These have been some tough days for me, hence why the lack of updates and new content. I wish I could take better care of the site, but things are going downhill for me. Well, as they say … when the going gets tough the tough get going. Still, one also has to be realistic. As things stand now for me, there is little hope that I may manage to make it. After I got banned from that forum (in my past update from two weeks ago), I got depressed and unmotivated. However I was making it back on my feet. I went on with my plan to sell domains, registered on Sedo and Namepros, did a little SEO and wrote some articles for guest blogging (none of which were even acknowledged unfortunately). So let’s began with a recap of what happened this week! More Rants Here
In this article about SEO, I discussed Google Authorship, and underlined some of its pros and cons. You should take a look at it before proceeding. If, after checking out my rants, you still want to verify your author and publisher accounts, I have put together a very detailed guide, which I am sharing with you today. First, I will explain what Google authorship and publisher are and the difference between them. Probably, you know the difference between a Facebook account and a Facebook page: An account belongs to an individual where as a Facebook page represents an entity, such as a Web site. Google Plus has similar types of accounts for individual users and pages. An author is an entity represented by a personal Google Plus account, and an author profile is linked to individual articles. A publisher is associated with a Google Plus Page and links to a Web site. I will show you how do these three things: Chew, Spit and Fart!!!
