Hi. I usually dont have a problem coming up with something to say, and I am putting a LOT of energy into this blog..
So how come I was only posting maximun twice a week, sometimes 3x??
Because I could not figure out HOW to force line breaks between paragraphs, and would spend 5 hours editing every blog post, trying to manipulate it to look as I wanted, and not one long running sentence.. Occassionally I would get lucky and the HTML tags I would put in would work. So I would look at how I coded those posts and try to apply the same principles to those that were messed up - no luck!
How many people can say that?
Jason Henderson and Matt Adams, both top 50 hopeful contestants along with yours truly at Next Internet Millionaire, have put the A in Action and the J in JV. They Independently and collectively have used each day of these past 2 weeks to advance their vote totals.
Jason aka BIG JASON (he is 6″11) and Matt aka the Hypnotist Matt Adams decided to interview other contestants they want to see in Colorado…. Consideration seemed to have one requirement - that you not be a jackass.. Hard for people who dont know me one way or another to jump to that conclusion, but you wont hear me arguing.
Of course I was honored to be included and hope that these relationships will develop into future venture$, but I did enter it with trepidation. You see Joel and Eric only made clear two things they were looking for:
Sitting down to write - whether it be a blog post, novel, report, ebook, etc. - is often a HUGE challenge. We all know the term ‘writers block’, so how many times have you sat with pen and paper and found yourself staring at a blank piece of paper for hours??
Those days are OVER!
I was sitting down today trying to decide what to write about. I had a post all ready to go about a friend who is offering cheap hosting for life - as in you pay a fee one time, and then you never pay again. Sounds exciting right? Well, as I was asking for some more details, he informed me that his server was hacked and *expletive*, *expletive*, *expletive*…
so I had to regroup… and a post will be coming about top rated hosts. I am in the middle of switching and have lots to share.. such as how I wrote this ENTIRE post, went to sleep, and woke up to see it GONE, since the migration of my site happened BEFORE I wrote the post, and it was LOST… *expletive*, *expletive*, *expletive*…
So get used to todays topic, since It is also a MISSION…
I have been around the workforce enough to recognize 2 types of workers (there are MANY more, but we will focus on these for now)
I have so much to write about this show I dont know where to start. Here are some random thoughts:
1) Being a Round II contestant (video below), Its getting way too personal, so … www.andreayager.com is borne and will be online shortly to continue discussing it, while allowing me to maintain my focus and purpose for this blog. Lesson to be learned here - BRANDING!! So if your name becomes a BRAND, run with it! (should I not get selected it may rot on my hard drive along with so many other ideas and plans that burnt out)
2) I am looking forward to NEXT year almost MORE than this year.. That may sound odd considering I hope to be a PART of this show, but I am certain Joel, Eric, the producers, etc. will learn a LOT (as will we all) from this experience and next year will be the refined version. Not to mention, I expect the publicity from this event will bring in, what we can only hope, a LOT more contestants, with the bar of video submissions being raised significantly.
3) Some mudslinging is already happening over on the Forum.. Seems one contestant is trying to pave the road to be the Resident Meanie, and secure himself a spot on the show as the ‘will take anyone down who gets in my path’. I know they want a show that entertains, but not sure at what or whose expense.. I have never seen any reality shows :).. Just a few episodes of American Idol. I was so off in who they selected to the 2nd round, that I hesitate to make any assumptions about what they actually want and jump to any conclusions…. unless it includes me participating!
4) Thanks to those who have made mention to ME and LIKING ME As most bloggers, I pay a close watch to Blogs linking to me - and lo and behold…..
Someone picked me out as one of the few videos he mentioned me on a Squidoo Lens on the next internet millionaire subject, and George Manty, a blogger from the Stompernet $1 trial, wrote in his Awesome blog to Give Andrea and Cliff (another contestant) a Perfect 10!
Guys - George KNOWS his business…
Here is my 2nd video for your viewing pleasure… Below that you can watch the trailer to get an idea of what it’s all about!
again……Next Internet Millionaire
