The Reality of Selling on the Internet

Published February 23, 2017 in Trouble - 5 Comments

I’m aware of something: I’d probably be a lot more rich if I hadn’t stuck with This Is Trouble. Because that’s a tough market to hit. If I’d continued for the last year pouring all the time I have into Trouble into smaller niche sites, focused on selling, instead—I probably would have more money in my pocket. […]

Weekly Wrap—February 20th

Published February 22, 2017 in Trouble - 0 Comments

I run a lot of sites now. And no, some of them won’t ever be publicly disclosed. But, I thought it might be good to do a sort of weekly wrap-up across all my publicly-available sites. I’ll try to post these every Monday, as it’s what I consider the start of my week. Of course today […]

The season is here. Time to start the motors. Racing’s always been a part of my life. I got given some racing game when I was five years old. Something from Papyrus. It had a #24 car on the cover and I just never lost interest in it. It got me through some dark times. […]

The other day I penned 10,000 words in my new book, plus another 4,000 across my other sites. Then I went on to Twitter and bragged about it. You can follow my Twitter here. So, humble pie was served to me over the next couple days. 10,000 words Monday. 0 words Tuesday. And…1,113 so far […]

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my online business pursuits for the last year, it’s that brand matters. And I’m fortunate that I picked a good name for my main website, right off the bat. Of course, my pen name has evolved, from… The “original blog” – This blog will get me in trouble Troublemaker […]

Istanbul

Published February 13, 2017 in Travel - 0 Comments

Split between Europe and Asia, Turkey’s crowned jewel city–Istanbul–is a hypnotic blend of Asian cheesiness, Middle Eastern religion, and European culture all wrapped into one beautiful and vast city. In all my travels so far, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. What do I mean by the above? Asian cheesiness: Thousands and thousands of […]
