Thoirsday, 9:43pm Reno, NV “Ask not for whom the dog barks. It barks for thee.” (Motto on our doormat.)
And welcome to the new blog.
I’ve pretty much just moved in.
And, as you can see, we hauled every scrap of crap from the OLD blog over here, and dumped it willy-nilly all over the joint. Coming up on five freaking years of archives over there on the lower right.
You could get lost in that Basement Of Wonders.
Be careful… should you muster the courage to go rummaging. (I dare ya.)
Jeez. I must be one of the longest-tenured bloggers in the blog-o-sphere. When I began, our keyboards were made from rocks. Electricity was supplied by hamsters on wheels.
Dinosaurs roamed the yard.
And WordPress didn’t have any numerals trailing behind — it was barely out of beta-diapers.
Now we’re deep into the Turbo edition (2.7.1).
It’s like that flying car I was promised as a kid (in my uncle’s dog-eared March-1956 issue of Mechanics Illustrated) (inventor porn, we call it now) has finally arrived…
… and I’m sitting in it , rotors revved, the dashboard a maze of lights and dangerous-looking switches, wondering how I’m gonna survive the first ride.
Okay, so this is just a new snarling rack of blog software, and I can’t crash it into someone’s roof or anything.
Still, this is my maiden flight, so I’m keeping it short.
We’ve listed a dozen or so of the most popular older posts on the right… and I invite newcomers to check them out for an accurate “taste test” of what’s in store for you here.
On the left, we’ve got a list of categories containing every single post I’ve ever written. Perfect potpourri snacking for longtime readers.
Are ya feelin’ lucky? Go on, make my day — click on any of the intriguing categories and see where it takes you.
Lots of timeless advice, insight, techniques for making money, and rollicking stories of ill-repute lurking in those virtual stacks.
I know several very successful marketers who waltz bravely into the archives here for inspiration every time they need to write something that has to be good.
Be forewarned: It’s addictive.
Like literary crack for the hungry business owner’s mind.
Anyway, I just wanted to invite y’all in. Remind you I haven’t left the scene…
… I just had some stuff to attend to in the last few weeks that interfered with my social media upkeep. (The Twitter world is aghast at my absence, I’m told.)
I expect to be back in the saddle here — blogging my butt off Mondays and Thursdays on marketing, copywriting and living life large — starting next week.
Just in time for the big damn road trip we’re taking through Australia the end of May through mid-June. Three cities, three Web-marketing seminars, in three weeks…
… a traveling road show of Cooper’s-fueled biz wizards and wily writers laying siege to Oz from the stage.
And good luck to us all on that.
Here’s the link, if you’re interested in the details:
Right now, I’m dying to know what the heck this post will look like when I hit the “publish” button.
I could just fly off sideways and crash into the side of the house…
P.S. Hey — let us know if you’re Down Under during those dates… and interested in attending any of the Flash Mob hot seat interventions we’ll be holding between events.
Very rare opportunity to get some face-to-face feedback from Stan and me (and possibly a few other top international marketing brainiacs we’ve shanghai’ed) on your biz and plans and dreams.
If we do hold any one-day Flash Mob events in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, the spots will go quick (cuz we can only handle 6 hot seats a day, tops)… so stay tuned for notices, here and in your inbox.
P.P.S. And for cryin’ out loud… if you’re NOT on my “blog notification” list, sign in now.
Top right. Name and email.
Instantly turns you into one of the Kool Kids on the Internets…
