Dial up and broadband

The tortoise and the hare

Dial up and broadband

As a blogger, you are going to be using your internet connection a lot. You are going to be using your email, accessing your site, adding content, attending to comments. You are going to be downloading e-books, videos, software programs, graphics and much more. In your SEO efforts, you are going to be accessing forums, other blogs, authority sites.

As I write this post, the month long football World Cup 2010 (soccer World Cup 2010 to the Americans) extravaganza has just come to an end.

Spain took home the cup, glory and four years’ bragging rights. The Netherlands, Germany and Uruguay took home consolation, mostly intact honor and “If only…” wistfulness.

A Brief Pep Talk

Boosting Each Other

Before we jump into the action, let’s take some time out for a little morale boosting.

The world of internet commerce is a bottomless well… well, so it appears.

The bad news is, there are a billion competitors for every niche you enter. The good news is, nine hundred ninety-nine million, nine hundred ninety-nine thousand of them (give or take) usually haven’t been able to sort out their USB ports from their posteriors. A handful of the survivors are grandly successful, many of them are doing well, most are doing all right.
