The Deal Fell Through

Well, it looks like you’re stuck with me after all. My deal to sell TTZ Media fell through. It turns out that company in Toronto wasn’t as rich as I thought. Their check bounced. Oh well. I didn’t really want to travel around the world anyway.

I guess I should round up all the numbers and post my March blog income results. I bet you’re wondering if I beat last month’s $7,011.05 figure. You’ll find out in a few hours.

Happy April Fool’s day everyone!

    I could have bought that since I’m Israeli and we don’t have this April’s fool tradition. I was actually about to go ordering Google’s new broadband technology. 😳

      1. Dave says:

        I bet it was one of those giant novelty cheques 🙂

    1. Alex says:

      April Fool jokes work better on those who don’t know about it 😈

      1. Alex says:

        I’ve been preparing for it for the last 10 days. No one fooled me, haha 😈

        1. Well, not many people do not know about April Fool’s though. 😀 It’s a matter of whether you realize it.

      2. KidBlogger says:

      1. And to think I was looking forward to more posts from Michael and Mitch! 😆

        1. derrich says:

          They have blogs too. Who’s coming with me? Guys? Hello? Hey, I was just kidding!

        2. Dave says:

          I’m sure you will see more posts from Michael and Mitch 🙂

  5. John says:

    Just wanted to drop by and say great blog John! I hope those figures come in high for your this month! 😀

  6. OhCash says:

    actually i was stunned to see the number of people who believed this without even a second thought. 😕

    1. Alex says:

      Yeah, a lot of naive people fell for it :mrgreen:

        1. Alex says:

          What? 😐

    2. Dave says:

      Yeah, it was pretty obvious that it was a joke 🙂

      1. Alex says:

        I knew it before it appeared in my browser.. too obvious ❗

  7. hehe…i knew it…happy april fools day 😛

  8. James says:

    It’s all about timing. At 12:01 it is obvious.
    The guy dragging cans behind his car at 3:00 in the afternoon had no expectation. :mrgreen:

    Anyway John, I think we are all glad you’re still here with your advice for others.

  9. Glad to see we all will get our daily dish of of the Mr Evil John Chow. Great joke.

    1. KidBlogger says:

      and his miscellaneous ramblings!

  10. Spencer says:

    Hey John,

    Excellent joke. I am a new reader to your blog and will be back. Looking for ideas to build my own blog and make cash just like you. Any ideas?


  11. mubin says:

    You had me for a bit.

  12. Spencer says:

    Hey John,

    Great joke. I am looking forward to learning from your and your awesome blog!


  13. How do we know you aren’t fooling us now?

    1. Alex says:

      Two April Fools jokes in a row are to much even for an evil guy like John…

    2. KidBlogger says:

      we don’t know… john is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo evil! 😈

    3. Good question… 😕

  14. Didn’t believe it for a second … but then I’m cynical 😉

  15. Shawn Knight says:

    Good stuff heheh

  16. Chris M says:

    Hehe, was wondering whether you would admit it or not 😉

  17. TJP says:

    Haha. Good one. I bet you broke the $10k mark.

    1. Yeah I’m pretty sure he did break the 10k mark. I have been waiting since last week for April 1st to find out. Oh the agony! 😥

      1. Alex says:

        I’d say it’s a little less than 10k 😈

        1. Alex says:

          Update: I was right – $8,500

          1. Dave says:

            It’ll be a few more months before he hits 10k I’m sure.

  18. Todd says:

    Ahh – more evil link baiting. Let us know how your traffic spiked for this post.


  19. Peter says:

    It was close enough to be believable except for your evil reputation. 🙂 good one

  20. Nate W. says:

    Chow you crazy maniac! 😀

  21. Happy April Fool’s too, John. Part of me WANTED it to be true (I had one company back in the Dot Bomb days that was almost bought out. I also almost sold my friend’s music media site to a conglomerate for $1M in stock but that fell through.)

  22. Chris Hope says:

    Good joke! I think you caught out quite a number of us for at least a few minutes there 🙂

  23. April Fools or not, that post probably got a TON of trackbacks 🙂 A couple of forums even featured threads about it hehehehe 😈 :mrgreen:

    1. Marc says:

      Yep, especially evil, exploiting a deeply meaningful holiday for his own purposes 😈

      1. Dave says:

        Deeply meaningful? I beg to differ 😮

  24. Damn it, does that mean the cheque you sent me for $50,000 for guest posting wont clear?!!! 😆

    1. Alex says:

      I’ll give you $70,000 to post in mine!!

    2. KidBlogger says:

      MAybe that’s just part of his trick!! hhahaha

    1. Alex says:

      I would like to set people on fire too.. 😈

      1. Alex says:

        Actually I did that once.. It didn’t turn out to be a good idea 🙁

        1. Tyler says:

          Yea people burn kinda quickly eh?

          1. Alex says:

            Faster than wood 😈

  25. golgi says:

    Hey John, I gess this mont you got to 12,000

    1. KidBlogger says:

      he’s got 8k!!!

  26. Tim Ukaj says:

    I can barely wait :mrgreen:

  27. I almost believed it too … then it occurred to me, “Wait a minute, this is John Chow. If he took off for around the world, there’s no way he’d give up the spotlight. He’d probably hire a camera crew to create his own reality show.”

    It was one of those splendid a-ha moments.


    1. Dave says:

      It was too unbelievable. As soon as I read he had sold it, I realized it was a joke.

    2. KidBlogger says:

      as long as I have seen the word “premanent” I said that a-ha!

  28. Ronaldo says:

    Well, after these posts by Shoemoney and John Chow we might as well start celebrating April Fool’s Day on March 31st… 🙂

    1. KidBlogger says:

      yea! shoemoney sold his blog to a foundation.. what a joke!

  29. Jorge says:

    Great joke! In Spain fool day is December 28th.

  32. Sonia says:

  45. Amanda says:

    In a way I’m glad it fell through because of the resources that are on this site. but I’m sorry that you lost it 🙁

  46. I still can’t get over it — I was this close to getting beached on Gullible’s Island LOL.

  47. That was very evil

  48. blabWire says:

    When I saw this post last week, I told my girlfriend about it, and her response was “Mike, it’s April Fools”. She’s a reader also.
