Blogging Fingers Is For Sale

Matt Jone sent me a note that he is giving the finger to Blogging Fingers.

I am selling it because it is time for me to move on from blogging (especially blogging about blogging). I believe I have taken everything I can from this type of blogging and I have lots of other bigger money making ideas that can be funded via this sale.

The site makes about $400 per month and has 199 RSS readers so there’s something to build on. Good luck with the same Matt.

John Chow’s Rise To Fame

Have you ever wonder how John Chow dot Com got so big? Lars-Christian has done a very detailed case study on the subject.

Little about the blogging scene is quite as intriguing as John Chow. This guy writes about restaurants he dine at and yet he manages to make over $20,000 per month from his blog. Of course, he also writes a lot about ways to make money online, but it’s certainly safe to say that he doesn’t follow the traditional “how to write about making money online” formula that we’ve gotten used to over the years.

That’s pretty good linkbait you got there Lars.

I’m Sure This Is An Accurate Translation

Ed Lau found this Bollywood dance video that has been translated with English subtitles. I’m pretty sure the translation is accurate. See for yourself.

I found this video much more entertaining than the Kung Fu Panda video Michael Kwan is running.
