Miscellaneous Ramblings – 1/28/2008

Three Days Left To Enter Affiliate Summit Contest

Only three days remain before I announce the winner of the Affiliate Summit West contest. Two winners will win a $199 show floor pass and one winner will win a $1,449 full conference pass. All winners will join me at the ShareASale party on Sunday February 24. If you haven’t entered, you still have some time left.

Tickets to the Affiliate Summit are 80% sold out. If you’re thinking of attending this very important trade event and haven’t purchased tickets yet, better hurry before they’re all gone.

Want To Make Your Blog Look Like Digg?

Garry Conn has created his first WordPress theme and it’s interesting to the say the least. If you love Digg so much that you want to make you blog look like them, then the DigSEM theme is for you! Each post has their own Digg button so you can Digg it up or down.

Question to Ask Before Your Freelance

Thinking of doing some freelance writing for other blogs? Then you’ll want to check out this post by super freelance whore, Michael Kwan. Kwan takes on a lot of questions new freelancers will need to answer before entering the field.

Big Bloggers, Bad Grammar

Internet Babel has posted a little rant about the poor use of grammar among the big blogs. Nick let me off lightly by saying English is not my first language but criticized Shoemony for being openly sloppy. Shoe’s answer was, “Grammar has never been my thing and I have never kared to really learn it.”

Google Going Into Paid Reviews?

Shoemoney received an emailed from an unconfirmed source claiming that Google will be testing a paid review service within the next couple months. If anyone else posted this, I would have said it was linkbait. Then again, it still might be.

Sally Learns To Brush Her Teeth

I think she enjoyed it. Hopefully, this will be the start of a good brushing habit. I just need to teach her to use the brittle side only.

      Well one thing is for sure.. whores get paid! I think you have a cool new title to add to your business cards Michael 🙂

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        I could make a pretty tasteless joke right now involving a word that starts like slip and rhymes with mutt, but I’m not going to. Let’s just stick with saying that I get paid. 🙂

    3. I like that Digg theme… it could come in handy for another blog I’m working on.

    4. ROFL you have been pimped Michael 😉

      Now back to something interesting, “If you can’t fight them, join them” is that what Google is after? Or was it just something like “prepare your field to make money online”. In either case I bet they will come up with something like using links as javascript rather than textual links, other ways they will have to put a big banner “Apologize to all previously penalized websites that were involved in paid reviews”.

      I am curious to know if this is just a nasty linkbait (as the “uncofirmed source” asking money for Dmoz listing) or its truth.

    John,
    Thank you so much mentioning my site as well as my new WordPress Theme, Digs’em. I really appreciate it so much. :mrgreen:

    1. Alan Johnson says:

      Great job with the theme, you definitely deserve credit for your efforts, as I’m sure that a lot of readers will find it useful.

      Best wishes,

      Alan Johnson

  3. Thanks for the backlink John. Mention on Shoemoney and John Chow in 2 days 😯 how awesome! 🙂

  4. small potato at wpdesigner has a digg theme as that that has been getting a lot of downloads.

  5. homemom3 says:

    John that is such a cute picture, course I was at her little site earlier. She’s such a cutie and grown so much, I remember those first pictures of her and her little welcoming party. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Youfoundjake says:

    She is soo cute John, good job you two…

  7. That’s a good article by Michael on freelancing.

  8. John and Michael, thank you both of you for the great posts!

  9. Cute pic of Sally…however, next time…monetize her bib by selling ad spots to the highest bidder! I’ll take a cut of your profits, thanks. :mrgreen:

  10. If Google launches this paid review thing, IZEA will snap and probably go on a violent killing spree. 😆

    As for Jeremy’s bad grammar.. 😕 ..no comment

  11. Hey John,
    That digg theme is pretty cool. There’s a really nice one like it a unique blog designs.

    P.S. Congratulations Sally!

  12. Mr. Rajawang says:

    Haha correct me if I am wrong but is Sally left handed? Bet she will grow up and be an artiste! Lol

  13. Sally is so cute!

    And thanks for sharing some of these great articles and the Digg WP theme, John. 🙂

  14. frenchkys says:

    My, I haven’t seen little Sally in months. Still cute as ever!!!

  15. Ronald Su says:

    Your daughter is very cute! 😀

    1. She is very adorable! I just hope she doesn’t try and stick the tooth brush in her mouth entirely! That worries me with kids.

  16. Jackie says:

    OMG she is just so adorable! I want squish her little cheeks and such a big girl brushing her teeth. My daughter brushes hers also but we like to give her more help…awww omg I just think she is so cute!

  17. Mike Huang says:

    Wow! This is my read of the day 🙂 Keep up the good work!

    -Mike

  18. Gary R. Hess says:

    Your daughter just needs a brush with the tongue scrapers on it… then she’ll have everything down 😉

  19. Chip says:

    Well, Sally’s going to be a fine girl when she grows up. I really hate the Digg-like theme and I’m looking forward to see who’s gonna use it. It’ll look like people using it will try to deceive Digg users into thinking that the articles are like post waiting to be submitted or dugg.

  20. Jack says:

    SALLY RULES THE WORLD.!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Alan Johnson says:

    Your daughter is adorable, make the most out of the time you spend together because before you know it she’ll be in college and, take it from someone who has experienced this, dealing with the situation will not be easy.

    Alan Johnson

  22. I enjoyed reading Shoemoney’s response. BTW– props to Sally ❗

  23. EWW. No thanks to the Digg-like blog theme.

  24. Francis Sim says:

    It seems that my baby cousin is having the same problem as your daughter. They just don’t seem to like the brittle side that much. :mrgreen:

  25. Deez Nuts says:

    When will the winner of the summit tickets be announced???????

  26. RacerX says:

    What a cute kid John!

    Congratz!

  27. Katie says:

    Awww Sally is so cute 🙂 I also have a child. She is going to be 3 in May 😛 That’s great you taught her to use the toothbrush. I help brush my daughters teeth 3 times per. day and I let her brush her teeth too. 😉
