Big Brother is Watching You!

As with any line of human enterprise, greed got the better of ethical considerations in internet marketing over the years.

This blog is for you

Dedication

Dedicated to you

Experts say you should avoid using the first person – I, me, mine – as much as possible when you are writing for the benefit of your readers. Out of personal conviction, too, I believe that the second person and the third person are always preferable.

However, this particular post does contain a lot of I, me and mine: I hope you will allow me this liberty. The nature of the post content demanded it.

Me? Blog?

Why me?

Why not you?

Wondering if I Can Also Blog

Me? Blog?

Yes, you. You can learn how to have a blog. With a little hard work, you can start writing a blog as well as anyone else. You can even set up a blog classroom, and give your readers the benefit of some blog learning.
