I’ve decided to start a new feature call Blog Of The Month. This feature will be used to reward loyal John Chow dot Com readers. Each month, I will do a review of a community member blog that you may not have heard of. This is a great to way for me to give back to the community and a great way for you to get to know the community members. Our first blog of the month is David Pitlyuk.
Who Is David Pitlyuk?
David Pitlyuk’s blog is new but he and I go way back. David used to be the owner of SystemLogic.net (now call SLCentral), a technology review site much like The TechZone. David and I were part of the Maximum PC network and between us, we practically own the MaximumPC.com home page.
David’s claim to the fame in the blogsphere is he was the first person to interview me. The original interview was posted on SsystemLogic.net but after David sold the site, the new owner took the interview down. I thought the interview was lost forever but David was able to find it on his hard drive and make it available on his blog.
Reading the interview brought back many memories – especially on the question, “Who are your influences in life and why?”
A girl who’s name I don’t know, because I didn’t have the guts to ask her for it. This was when I was about 15. I was on a bus going home and seated a few seats away was the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen! However I was very shy at the time and never made eye contact with her. When I saw her looking my way, I would turn away. Anyway, my stop came and I got off. Turning around as the bus left I saw her looking at me…..and she smiled. I would given everything to get back on that bus but it’s was moving and I couldn’t out run it. I went back on that bus for a few day after hoping to catch her again, but never did see her. It was at this point in my life that I decided if you really want something really bad, you’re just going to have to go for it. You never know what could have been.
What Is David Pitlyuk About?
David’s blog is about his life adventure and his miscellaneous ramblings. David and I share many of the same interest so if you like my blog, chances are very good you will like his. I have cars, David has cars. I talk about money, David talks about money. David even tosses in the occasional restaurant review. Some of the more noteworthy posts include:
- How I Got Over 2,000 Visitors In The First Week With $0
- Dodge Viper Coupe With Matching Helicopter
- Mansion Hunting In Northern Virginia
- My RSS Feed Techniques
A very clean two-column WordPress theme with colors that are easy on the eyes power David Pitlyuk. Currently, the blog is monetized with just Google AdSense but I’m sure David will be adding more revenue streams as the blog grows. David has done a good job keeping the blog updated with at least one new post per day. If David can apply what he learned from SystemLogic.net to his blog, I’m sure he’ll do very well with it.
Congrats to David Pitlyuk, our first Blog Of The Month.
How You Can Be a Blog Of The Month
Don’t email me asking if you can be a blog of the month. The answer will be no. Future members to the Blog of the Month will be based on how well you can grab my attention. I am looking for blogs with great content that are updated a lot.
