Happy New Year – My 2015 Resolution

It’s hard to believe, but I went all of 2014 without posting a single blog post. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, because quite frankly it’s something I miss quite a bit. For those of you who used to read my blog, it will be obvious to you that keeping up with posting takes quite a lot of time and effort. However, I’ve come to realize that the rewards I got out of blogging were well worth the effort.

Why I think blogging is worth it:

  1. I made a lot of great contacts that lead to some neat opportunities.
  2. It made me set goals, and feel accountable for for those goals, since I didn’t want to have to publicly admit I didn’t achieve them.
  3. It indirectly helps with SEO for other projects.
  4. When getting into new businesses people inevitably search about you; having a current blog helps add legitimacy to what you’re doing.

So, with that said, I’m going to commit myself to blogging at least once per week in 2015, starting with this blog post. To be realistic, there might be a week or two that gets missed, so I’m going to target at least 50 posts this year. Since I haven’t blogged in quite awhile, there is a lot to catch up on and I’m eager to write about it. I’m also going to start a series on how to start an ecommerce store. Since running treadmill.com and cuttingboard.com, I have become somewhat of an expert on the subject. The series will be a step-by-step guide, just like my affiliate marketing series. In fact, I just won an auction today on NameJet.com that I will be using at the case study for the project. Once the domain has been transferred to me I will share more details.

So, until next week…. Happy New Year!

  1. Hey Mike,

    I’m so glad to see you”ll pick up writing again in this blog. After all, it was you who got me motivated with one of my authority affiliate sites. It was on your blog that I first read about the power of Google News and you know what? Just three weeks ago I got into it after two years of regularly publishing news content and high quality articles.

    Multiple times I’ve been on the verge of throwing the towel but then I went back to your blog, read through your articles and told myself: just be patient. And this is really paying off lately.

    I wish you a happy and successful 2015 – I’ll be reading your posts with close attention.
