Making the move to WPress, today, please read this...

I am going to make the move to WordPress, I post this last post here in blogger format, this is mainly because I know the feed will go out, and it allows me to update the most important people, you, the readers.

Please note this will be down at some point though not for long, maybe you are reading this when it's still on blogger, or maybe whiles it's on wpress.... who knows, anyway, wil be making the switch, nothing should need to be done by you, unless my feeds mess up and you may then need to resubscribe, but doing that when it's on Wpress of course.

Thanks to you all.

Not happy with blogger or godaddy, forced to consider WPress now...

I am not happy... many others are also not happy, this mess with blogger and their recent shafting of FTP users could have been dealt with alot better than it has been, wasting hours trying to sort this out has pissed me off no end, the reason we used blogger was for it's ease of use, yet here we all are having to deal with technical crap.

I was using blogger long before google went and bought it, as usual they piss everyone off, don't get me wrong, I like and use google for lot's of things but they ain't covered themselves in glory with all this mess, like they never when they buy half decent stuff and let it die... 

All credit to Rick Klau though for being the only blogger staff who seems to help any of us, blogger should have hired him YEARS ago!

This FTP situation with blogger and this blog, plus godaddy and the DNS stuff is really pissing me off, godaddy say I should "park" with them so I can change DNS settings using their total DNS, yet that would mean this blog vanishing, as it is, there is no way that is going to happen.

I do want to sort this mess out but feel blogger has let us all down the way it's been done, will they change something else in two years and piss us all off again? Who knows?

They should never have allowed us to use FTP of they had no intention of supporting us properly, they only did that because everyone was dumping them for WordPress, people wanted to stop using blogspot, especially after so many were deleted, to combat more crap happening like this they wanted people to be able to use their own domains so allowed us to do so, using FTP so we host our own blogs, like I have here, yet they went and changed it all again with custom domains, basically they shafted us, they want you to host with them so they have control, whatever happened to the "don't do evil" mantra google shoved down our throats?

They should have started with custom domains in the first place, I take anything they say now with a huge dose of salt, do I trust them? Not really!

Yet, I don't really like Wordpress, many others don't either, but this mess is forcing us to think about it, me included.

I have yet to hear from anyone who has used godaddy for their domain, and their own host for the blog who have sorted this mess out, who I can ask how they did it.

Are you one who has sorted it using godaddy etc? Any advice? 

I am running out of patience with it to be honest, it's a shame, I was one of those who argued with WordPress users, sticking up for blogger over the years, never again will I do that.

As things are, I am now waiting to hear from my host in the hop they can help in some way, if they can, I am going to give it three months and see how it fairs, if I have issues, I will dump blogger and use WPress. 

I think blogger screwed up big time, they could have done this a whole lot better.

FTP migration for blogger is near, a video walk-through...



Looking like FTP migration tool is coming tonight if it is ready, but for those who have a blogger blog you host, there is this video explaining how it is used, I just watched it myself and it all sems pretty straightforward.

I am ken to move this and see how it goes, whether I stuick with it remains to be seen, considering some of the benefits WPress has over blogger and the fact I would be hosting it too, having complete control over it etc, not that we don't control this but we ARE in some sense at the mercy of blogger and google when we use it.

Anyway, I am as you know a blogger fan so I am keen to see how it goes.. it means this blog will not be at the main domain robsellen.com (which I will probably do something with I think, if it's usable) so this is likely to be put on a subdomain, like blog.robsellen.com or something more creative, keyworded... not decided yet

Hoping it all goes well, backlinks are preserved etc, PR (page rank) stays as is.

Dump the IM bullshitters and hype if you want to make money online



Internet marketing (IM) has some great advantages, but it also has some seriously greedy and deceptive liars in it too... having just seen another bullshit video and pitch from some self proclaimed "guru" I think it's time this IM niche cleaned itself up.

Someone is watching...as always, something these bullshitting hype marketers could do with taking note of, many of you have been selling the fake bullshit dreams and hype for a long time now and in the process taking the piss out of people, taking their money, misleading them and letting them down.

I am just about sick of these bullshitters in the IM niche and the sly underhand tactics they use to lure people in, and I do mean lure... they more often than not just rip you off.

I unsubbed from so many of the list we in the IM niche get sucked into many months ago, a few I kept over the time and now they are gone too, so I am now only subbed to 3 and it's staying that way, these 3 deliver good stuff, solid info that will help most people in this niche but they are not geared to noobs in that sense.

I won't be telling you who is crap and who isn't, my advice is stay off them all!

Now though, we have something else to help kick these assholes into touch, social media and the way people share and spread things so fast, it means these assholes can't hide, rip someone off and it will be told somewhere.

So, these sly bastards are new playing a new card, the "woe is me, I did wrong but I am a new person now" angle is coming out... I just hope people don't fall for it, it's bullshit that will cost you big money if you do!

The problem is these sly bastards are know realising they can't keep doing what they did, they know they can't hide anything, they know FTC is on their backs, they know they would be in deep shit if they get found out, it's likely they will get found out, well I damn hope they do.

Is it likely the new disclosure rules and the fact they can't use their bullshit testimonials from "friends" has triggered it off, they are worried and changing tactics, yet only so they can try and fleece more money from the gullible masses, yes they are gullible!

Bullshit claims of 2 hours a day work for 50 grand a month and that sort of crap, people fall for...amazingly!

You have to question your own greed if you fall for that crap, those bullshitters are only worried about their own greed, but you can't complain if you fall for it, if you do...you are being a hypocrite because it was your own greed that made you fall for it!

Right?

Thought so, so what are we to do about it, those in this IM niche get tarnished with the same brush, which is a damn good reason to start doing something about it, no matter how small it all mounts up.

Let's face it, Internet Marketing is not going anywhere, it's just the medium being used for marketing, it's the way it's used that needs to be looked and changed, it can only be us who force the change...

There are some great marketers who are ethical, decent and deliver what they promise...simply because they don't lie about what they can deliver, quite often they will over-deliver which is great for you, me and anyone who buys from them, follows them, these people should be supported.

The rest, ditch em and if they rip you off, shout about it loud and clear, wherever you can, blog about it, tweet it, whatever just don't let it lie, because who know who they will rip off next?

We all owe to ourselves and everyone else to use some common sense and at least always do your due diligence... that alone will save you money, heartache and pride.

The sooner we boot out these assholes the better for everyone, it's funny but the biggest most important thing we have is our reputation, yet these assholes don't care about theirs...at least till they get found out, then it's too late.

Three things... Mind, Wallet/Purse and Reputation!

Don't let these idiots put crap into your head, if what they say sounds to good to be true, it probably is!

Don't spend anything until you get a decent second opinion, even then be very wary of what and how you spend, some of this assholes used sly forced continuity scams.

Strip everything else away and you are left with reputation... what's theirs like?

What you then do also has an influence over YOUR reputation, don't let these assholes bad rep ruin yours, and always strive to keep it intact, it's you main asset.

Save your money, if you must spend it, don't waste it on bullshit systems, instead get something like these videos, use them to find YOUR niche and then work on that by delivering decent content.

Get involved with decent like minded people who can help you, also help them where you can and you won't have any need to worry about the bullshitters taking the piss out of you.

Don't you agree?
