Miscellaneous Ramblings for 8-10-2007

$7,000 In One Day

Graham Langdon of The Million Dollar Wiki is one happy camper. I wrote about Graham’s project three days ago. The next day he sells 70 pages. Let’s see, at $100 per page, Graham pulled down $7,000 in 24 hours. Hmmm, I think he should buy me a beer!

23 Thing Nate Learned From Blogging

Nate Whitehill, who won a Nintendo Wii from me, has been blogging for the past seven months and has learned 23 things from it. I’m sure he learned more but 23 was all he could think of. Congrats to Nate for reaching 500 RSS subscribers.

Damn Evil Cow

It seems evil is rubbing off on the cow. They posted a way to get unlimited Yahoo! Search Marketing coupons.

There’s 4 digits at the end of that URL and we quickly found that with a bit of mixing up the numbers, there’s heaps more vouchers available, all with different values! $20, $50, $60, $75 and probably $100 but we didn’t find that one. We grabbed a $75 voucher and can confirm this is working, we just setup an ad campaign worth $80.

Here a link for a $100 coupon. If you’re truly evil, you’ll figure out a way to turn it into $1,000.

Problogger Gets A New Look

What do you think? I like it a lot. However, his front page isn’t his blog anymore. It’s more of a portal. I guess readers who want the blog only can change the bookmark from problogger.net to problogger.net/blog (or read it from RSS).


Sally Climbs The Stairs

To get your weekend started off on a smiling note, I present this video of Sally Chow climbing the stairs for the first time (with a little help from her grand mom). Enjoy!

    1. Simon says:

      Yeah I agree, didn’t like it very much but this one looks promising.


      1. shaun says:

        I didn’t mind the old one. I really like the new one better though. that video was cute lol

    2. Seems like I’ve seen this type of design too many times though.

  2. John, have you ever used Yahoo ads before? Effective?

    1. John Chow says:

      Yes I have used them. It’s harder to set up than Google AdWords but they are quite effective.

      1. More or less effective than Adwords?

  3. Roberta says:

    I like Problogger’s new design, I think it looks great. Mostly, I’ve read it through RSS just for the content…

  4. beautiful baby !
    congratulation πŸ™‚

  5. BeachBum says:

    The $100 a page wiki idea is cool. Reminds me of buying pixels, then after that is was word phrases. Now to figure out what is next before anyone else….


      1. KingJacob says:

        Is that similiar to 1376200dollarwiki.com?

      2. Geedos says:

        It’s good to see the Cow is maintaining his evil bovine intentions! πŸ˜†

  6. Xaasid says:

    Oh, walk them stairs!

    Bring on the yahoo coupons.

  7. dcr says:

    $7,000? I think he ought to buy you more than a beer! Maybe dinner, eh? πŸ˜‰

  8. craig says:

    $7G’s in 24hrs!?!? Holy Mackrel! I think he should buy you a little more than a beer. . sheesh. I need to feel the John Chow effect, on my back account!

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      Before you can feel that effect, you need to be on the receiving end of the “Damn, I wish I thought of that” effect.

  9. Darren’s design looks a lot like http://www.readwriteweb.com to me…or am I tripping… πŸ™

  10. That video was so cute I had to comment.

  11. mason says:

    john chow has got the life. money and a good family :mrgreen:

  12. Sally is too cute! oh my gosh!!! ADORABLE! I love little asian babies, there’s nothing cuter.. gosh. She’s well on her way to internet stardom! *=)

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      How many kids have 7200 people see them walk up the stairs?

  13. Jeff says:

    The new problogger theme looks amazing, it looks more professional and cleaner, just what he needed.

  14. Nate W. says:

    Hey John, thanks for the linkage. I originally had like 50 things I learned on there, but I didn’t want to post a 3000 word article, so I cut it down to 23, my age. Thanks man! πŸ˜€


  15. Budget Babe says:

    John, firstly, your little Sally is gorgeous! An absolute delight. You must be one proud Daddy!!

    As for Problogger, his site is looking great. Giving me some food for thought too.

  16. Love the new Problogger theme although I hate to see the orange go.

    MillionDollarWiki looks like he’ll make it at this rate. Just wait til the media picks up the story.

  17. Yebot says:

    This is interesting. Compare the Alexa rankings for the million-dollar-home-page and the million-dollar-wiki over time. You can see when the million-doller-home-page guy got his CNN interview.


  18. xd1 says:

    Thank for the tip I got the 100.00 coupon.

  19. chtanxw says:

    Parents are very excited to see baby grows up day after day. Every great move begins with a small step. Congratulation!

  20. FT says:

    Beautiful baby! It’s seems like yesterday my kids were that little. Enjoy, cause they grow up very fast.


  21. Geedos says:

    $7k in 24 hours is a very nice return on a $400 review – maybe you should start charging commission on sales made 48 hours after your review! 😈

  22. flexy says:

    that guy will be the next web guy to cash in big time. Good for him!

  23. Urbanist says:

    Thanks for all the updates – I love the new look of ProBlogger!

  24. fanatic says:

    John I agree the guy who runs the Million Dollar Wiki owes you a keg for the promotion you gave him! I noticed how the number of pages sold had jumped after I saw your blog entry about his site.

  25. bob says:


    Your little princess is cute!


  26. jack says:

    i can say,
    i know about about the bloggers /blog

    i also saw John chow and john cow
    and i pro-blogger

    but i didnot think that it was a way to internet stardom.

    now i know why people are so curious

    My Internet Idol is
    JOHN CHOW as even my cast link similar chou 😳

    Astala Vista

  27. Kathryn says:

    Sally is ADORABLE! I love the little dance near the top of the stairs. πŸ˜†

  28. OMGbay says:

    I’m equally excited about the stair escapades as the problogger reface πŸ˜†

  29. John Bennett says:

    Yet another idea I didn’t think of first…. errr
