Deadlines - humor (or not?)

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Who are you?

I am a homeschool mom by choice. You can call me mad, but don't question my judgement, because I don't question yours.

Today I posted an innocent comment on Facebook and before I knew, an "ex-homeschool" SUPER mom started making some snide comments, as she always does when she feels threatened by the fact that she no longer homeschools her child. Hey - I didn't tell her to put her kid in school. I've never met her and don't know her, except from her constantly bitter and snide comments.

I wrote this note in response:

Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative - self-value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it's a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them. ~Jennifer James

When you are not jealous, you will not constantly look to discredit other people's CHOICES, saying that you know better, you do better and you are always right. It will reflect in your personal life and you will not have to try build a Facebook persona of "attacking those who are WRONG". Who are you to judge me?

You don't know what goes on in the lives of those nearest to you - that is why so many people areshocked when there is news of a scandal which involves a close friend or relative. "Not him / her! I saw him/her just yesterday..."  or "I can't believe he/she did it". So who are you to know what goes on in MY life if you have never even met me?

If you are going to befriend people on Facebook, accept them without judgment. If you don't agree with what they have to say, SHUT YOUR MOUTH. They get to choose how they live their lives, whether they homeschool their kids, are married or single and what religion they want to be.

It is NOT your business, so don't make it.Use your own page to let out your frustration and bitterness, and let me use mine.

The 3 Categories of Internet Marketing

Thousands of businesses are joining the amazing world of Internet marketing. While it may seem overwhelming for a beginner, Internet marketing can be classified into 3 categories: article marketing, market research and search engines. Before getting involved in article marketing, you should understand the ins and outs of the industry, if you wish to be successful.

Market research is the process of selecting a target market and deciding how much money you are prepared to invest into promoting your products and services to them.

While pay per click advertising on search engines is a popular marketing tool, it can become quite expensive.  It can also become quite time consuming and is best left to professionals.

Article marketing is a simple, yet very effective tool.  You can use the information gained from your market research efforts to give readers exactly what they want. People love information, especially if they don’t have to pay for it. Use that to bring visitors to your site.

How traffic to Your Site Can Increase with Article Marketing

There are tens of thousands of articles on the Internet about SEO and how to increase your page rankings and traffic to your site.

Links are valuable but unless you know what you are doing, are hard to come by. Search engines don’t rate link farms highly.

Link farms are endless links that are great for back linking, but useless to humans who want information. I have actively been actively enhancing my Internet presence since 2008. It can take months for Search Engine Optimization results to be seen.

This makes "selling" SEO to customers hard. They are required to pay us month after month and it can take 6 months or so before they will start to see any tangible results. This is the nature of SEO.

Bringing traffic to a site is not a specific BIG event, but rather a LOT of little things done consistently over time. These small things add up to BIG RESULTS.

Article marketing is one of the most effective tools in our SEO arsenal, but most clients say that they can’t write, or they cannot write well enough. If this is the case, hire an expert (like me) to do it for you.

A good SEO optimized article contains keywords that are naturally written into the content in strategic places. I will then submit the articles for you to article directories and include your details in the resource box. By posting just 1 article consistently, every day, you will see your traffic to your site increase drastically in a few short months.

I am the Naked Copywriter

Yes, I am at it again...

It is after midnight and I can't sleep, so I am sitting here writing.

That is what us writers do when thoughts are milling around in our heads and there is nothing we can do to fall asleep. I have tried to visualize, but that didn't lull me to sleep, so now I am here. This was supposed to be an early night for me...

Why did I build this site and why the strange and somewhat revealing title?

Well, I am a copywriter and when it is hot, I like to get undressed and work with the gentle sea-breeze on my back, as I am doing now. Nothing too revealing and nothing weird or sinister. Just plain and simple. I am a copywriter and my nudity sets me apart from others.

Of course there is also the fact that I am good at what I do, but everyone says that. I bet I am the only good, nude copy writer around!

As for the content of the site, I will be sharing some awesome tips with you to help you get traffic to your site.
