Thanks For The Kegs of Beer!

While I am always thankful when a reader likes my posts enough to buy me a beer, it seems that a few readers like this blog so much that sending me a pitcher isn’t enough. They are sending me entire kegs of beer! I like to recognize these keg donors.

Johns Wu – $88.88

Johns Wu is the current big beer giver. He sent me $88.88 so I can buy a round for the family. Johns is the webmaster at Bankaholic and I assume he sent me the big kegger because of the post I did about the Gold Amex card.

Danielle Nagami – $50.00

Most of you will know her as Ms. Danielle. Danielle sent me the $50.00 keg of beer as a thank you for running the Microsoft Zune contest, which she won. Ms. Danielle is now giving away the Zune in her own contest.

Melissa Surles – $50.00

I think it’s really cool that it’s mostly females who are buying me the big beers. Melissa is the owner of Private Link Sales, a marketplace where website owners can buy or sell text links in a simple, easy and direct process. Unlike Text Link Ads, doesn’t any commission on sales. Instead, they charges a flat fee of $2 to list a link for sale.

Now through August 1, you can submit a link for free. It maybe worth trying out.

Thanks For The Beer!

I think I will set up a Dot Com Beer and BBQ party this summer. Thanks to everyone who has sent me a beer. It really is much appreciated. One reader commented that’s it really funny for people to be buying beers for a blog that is making over $12,000 a month. You know what they say. The rich get richer. 😈

    Lucky you John. I wish I had generous donations in my blog. πŸ˜›
    Nonetheless, you have deserved it.
    Good content = more beer.

    1. it’s really good idea

      maybe i should start doing that on my blog just to pay for the blog hosting

      1. Goob says:

        I’ve had it up on my personal blog for a while, but have yet to enjoy a brew thanks to it πŸ™

        1. cooliojones says:

          I think you would get some people to donate, just follow John’s rules, have GREAT content, and increase your traffic. I’m kinda in the same boat, but I’m doing something about it!!

        2. ouchs says:

          My beer fund is still a virgin too

      2. simon says:

        No one buy me a coffee neither πŸ˜•

      3. webd360 says:

        Yea, I am thinking of trying it out soon too

        1. Mybloggo says:

          So sad no one buy me a beer………..

          1. Marc says:

            You have to give them a reason to πŸ™‚

      4. Lewis Empire says:

        Try using a “Buy me a car” link. Then you only need one reader!

  2. And the poor bloggers get no link love…

    1. simon says:

      That’s not true. Just become the Top Commentators you don’t need to be rich you can get Johnchow’s link love :mrgreen:

      1. Marc says:

        Yep, there’s lots of love coming from that list πŸ™‚

    2. i’m poor but i still get link love by being a top commentator

      1. Lewis Empire says:

        No kidding! 103 posts? At least you’ve got some interesting comments to read. I’m tired of reading things like “look, I’m the first post”

        1. Your not talking about my posts are you!!

          Look I’m the 83rd post

      2. ouchs says:

        you like live on this site πŸ™‚

  3. John you must be feeling a little wobbly after all that beer, but being a canadian your probably used to it.

    1. Marc says:

      Even Canadians aren’t used to plowing through a whole keg on their own πŸ˜›

      1. Lewis Empire says:

        I don’t know. Real Estate Editorial may be up to the task! What do you think REE, can we see some pictures?

        1. Well I’m right in the middle of the Calgary Stampede, so yes maybe at the end of the week I’ll post some pictures on my blog, I’ll bet you i’ll drink a keg’s worth this week. One day might be tough!!

  4. Robbert says:

    I think I will ask my future readers for burgers. Then you take care of the beer, and I will take care of the burgers πŸ™‚

    That should be some party!

    1. Marc says:

      That sounds awesome except I’ve never been anywhere and had an acquaintance offer me a burger…

      Buying someone a beer is a very easy relation to make in terms of real world networking. Buying a burger on the other hand…

  5. Debo Hobo says:

    Great job!!! Looks like a well layed plan. Now pass the beer 😈

  6. Shaun Carter says:

    What’s interesting about the $88.88 is that Mr. Wu is making more than that for just signing up one person on that AMEX card πŸ™‚

    The credit card signup commissions are VERY lucrative.

    1. Carl Pei says:

      And you guys know that the number 8 is considered very lucky in Chinese culture. 😈

      1. Marc says:

        I did not know that. I learn something new every day here πŸ™‚

      2. Jimson Lee says:

        And 88 is considered double lucky. I’ve seen people give $88 as wedding gifts… I never thought about giving $88.88

        Perhaps they were too cheap to give a “C note” for a wedding gift!

        Erveryone loves “Brownies”!

        1. Lewis Empire says:

          Can anyone send me $8888.88? I’ll even accept as low as $888.88. I just want you all to feel lucky!

      3. Isn’t 7 a lucky number, too? July 7th this year is supposed to be the luckiest day ever…so I heard. 😎

        1. Jimson Lee says:

          Yes, in certain cultures, 7 is lucky, and this year July 7, 2007 is a very popular wedding day being 7-7-7 !

        2. Yes there was most wedding this day bacause of that. I am wondering how many of them will stay undivorsed. 😎

    2. Gary Lee says:

      love how this comes from a instantcredit guy . . hahaha

      1. Shaun Carter says:

        It’s because I know what the payouts are πŸ™‚

        1. ohh… i was wondering why he did that too

          now i know


  7. Ulchie says:

    Wow, a ladies man. Haha, the ladies are the ones buying beer for you. Mr. Evil has figured out a way to turn the world upside down.

    1. Carl Pei says:

      Indeed, he is in a position most men want to be in. πŸ˜›

      1. Marc says:

        Yeah, people are giving him money πŸ™‚

  8. MoneyNing says:

    Wow great to hear that you are getting lots of money for beer!

  9. Lewis Empire says:

    Do you actually buy beer with the beer money? I’d like to see pictures of that party!

    1. simon says:

      Good point! no picture no truth 😈

      1. Marc says:

        Well we did see a picture of John with a beer in Taipei I think. One beer…

  10. Art says:

    so when is the keg party?

    1. simon says:

      Maybe John will have a online keg party. 😯

      1. How would that work though…buy your own beer and toast the screen? Hmmm πŸ˜•

  11. John, you’re more than welcome for the beer.


  12. shman says:

    Share with us John πŸ™‚

  13. And the drunk get drunker! *=)

  14. ms danielle says:

    oh man a dot com beer and bbq party would be awesome πŸ˜€ thanks again John for holding the original contest, and also for entering mine. with the amount of exposure it’s brought to my little blog it’s definitely worth buying you a round of beer!

    1. We could all throw an interactive global party like Live Earth except we call it Live Beer or something. Not everyone is so lucky to live close by to The Man. 😐

  15. JW says:

    Thank you for the plug! I’ve been reading your blog daily ever since I discovered it. In fact, when I just loaded up your site right now to check for updates, I was shocked to see my name up there!

    And wow, you make $12k/mo? Congratulations! Enjoy the beers, take care.

  16. MK says:


    1. Mybloggo says:

  17. Andy says:

  18. simon says:

    Congrats! Agree with the rich get richer. The big blog get bigger and richer.

      1. What is this? Can you translate?

  20. Gary Lee says:

    I’d like to see John actually finish the keg of beer! πŸ‘Ώ

    1. Marc says:

      I wouldn’t, I like John. That would give him alcohol poisoning.

  21. Zlatan says:

    Wooow! Lots of beer!
    Gimme some πŸ˜›

  22. 365 Days says:

    How about you buy all of us a beer john?

    365 Days… One Goal… Can I Do It?

    1. Goob says:

      Your site’s down…and that’s too bad, because I wanted to know what the goal was πŸ™‚

      1. Marc says:

        It’s up now. Vague, ambiguous goal. Been done time and time again too…

  23. man … you better share some brew!


    1. simon says:

      Ya, then we all can enjoy it.

  24. Gdog says:

    Hey John, I’ll be back in BC at the end of July–just in time for you to put on my welcome home BBQ!! πŸ™‚

  25. oh wow! you get really lots of beer from the individuals!

  26. John you’re wrong- it’s not the rich get richer. It’s the rich get richer by being cheap… You can buy me that glass of wine now.

  27. Exactly once you are ritch you would have to be idiot not to get ritcher.

  28. I bought you a beer, too, John. Unfortunately, someone chugged it all down before it could get to you. *burp*

  29. If I send you 100 dollars will you link me? πŸ˜†

    1. Marc says:

      I think it costs $200 for his TLA links πŸ™‚

    2. ritchie says:

      Try to send him 100 kegs via e-mail.

  30. Wahlau.NET says:

    wow…not bad, it could add up to your blog income

  31. John Cow says:

    Sheesh, next month you should get a “buy me a new liver” plugin πŸ˜€

    1. ritchie says:

      20% of the income goes to the “new liver for john foundation” πŸ˜€

  32. Paul says:

    Why not buy a beer. Just because you’re making a lot doesn’t mean we aren’t learning anything.

  33. cooliojones says:

    John, this is a great post because it really shows how no matter how big you get, you still remember the people who put you there. Some of those qualities simply cannot be taught, and like they say, the cream rises to the top.

  34. ritchie says:

    If you ever come over to Europe, I’ll invite you to a couple of Viennese kegs!

  35. Deelip says:

    Yeah, The rich get richer.
    All the poors can be is to be jealous of the richer.:)

  36. Isnt this danger? I think that you could sue us for supporting you in alcoholism. I would be worried.
    Maybe there was already some case like that.

  37. Buying John beer is pretty harmless. I’m sure he doesn’t spend it all on beer anyway, so there’s no harm in contributing to the JC beer movement.

  38. feve says:

    i wasn’t sure if the “buy me a beer” thing would work out too well (since you already make a decent income), but it seems despite the fact you can successfully earn money on your blog, people are willing to give you some. lol

    very nice

  39. So it seems you are writing drunk?

    I just love beer πŸ™‚
