Click Here For Free & Useful Information
I just sent out the latest edition of my newsletter which is chock full of free and useful information.
If you haven’t signed up you ought to consider doing so or risk being among the almost 2 billion people who haven’t subscribed yet. You don’t really want to be among those people, now do you. Be a leader, think for yourself and join those of us who swim upstream against the current.
If you haven’t already accepted that you are a rebel in need of a cause consider this your call to action. Sign up and stop worrying about whether you have the guts to walk up theÂ downÂ escalator.
Or do what I do and tell people that the guy in the white Nikes stole your wallet. If they ask you for more of a description say that you got a quick look at him but you are convinced that he is kind of short/tall and skinny/fat.
Alternatively you can always describe him being sort of in between milky and mocha about Venti tall. By the time they finish scratching their heads you’ll have finished you stroll up the escalator and will be well on your way to your next destination.
Never Do This
But you musn’t ever do one of these things:
1) Wait until you reach the cashier to get out your credit card or checkbook. You knew long before that you were going to have to pay. Waiting isn’t rebellious, it is just stupid.
2) The same rule applies to those who wait in line to fill their tanks at Costco. You should have your card out before you hit the pump or risk having your tires slashed by the Costco pump genies.
Stop shaking you heads at me. My blog, my rules.
Do I Have Your Attention?
Do I have your attention now? By now it must be obvious that I
was am trying to get it.
That is because I am not always a silly and insouciant man. I really did unsubscribe to a number of newsletters because they didn’t serve a useful purpose for me. They just added noise and clutter to my life and I already have plenty of that.
When I looked at them I didn’t see any personality or passion in them. There was no attempt to try to build a relationship or establish a connection. Â Nor did they provide any new information that I hadn’t seen a million times before.
Granted some of you will say the same thing about my newsletters and or my posts. Some of you won’t relate to my sense of humor and instead of thinking about “That clever fellow Jack” you will use some other less endearing term(s) to describe me.
That is ok, I don’t expect or need everyone to like or love me.
What I Am Trying To Do
What I am trying to do is simple. I am working on becoming a better writer who one day will be the publisher of many books that you and others enjoy reading. I am working on learning how to use social media more effectively than I do now.
Part of the reason that I started the newsletter was to see if I could build one from scratch. I wanted to see if I could take nothing and turn it into something.
It is possible that I will fail.
It is possible this newsletter won’t ever gain any traction and that nothing will come of it.
I am not worried about that. It is not because I doubt my ability to build and grow it. I have more than a few ideas about how to make this mother do more and be more than it is.
Time is my biggest adversary. I don’t have as much to use as I want to.
But that is not stopping me either.
Right now I am playing around with it. Right now I am experimenting with times and formats. I want to see what works and what doesn’t.
Once I get that sorted out things will begin to take shape and I will start to implement some of the more concrete ideas.
Eventually I will be in a position where I can provide more useful information about what I learned and how I did it. Ultimately I see it all as a learning experience and that has an awful lot of value.
Your Call To Action
Here is your second chance to see what my newsletter looks like and to sign up. Click on the link and take a look at the latest edition and those that came before it. If you like what you see please sign up for it.
It is free and if you decide it is not for you it is just as easy to unsubscribe as it was to subscribe.
Don’t wait to sign up because I am not going to give out any Ginsu knives or cool stuff from Ronco. Â Go on now, point and click your way to free and useful information.

@skypulsemedia @bdorman264 Yes, free.

Biggest Los Angeles/Orange County pet peeve. People sitting at the red light and then it turns green and no one moves. And they start just before the yellow which is why everyone blows through the red light trying to make it through. Which is why the set up cameras.
As with your paying peeves. The only thing anyone should be doing at a red light is preparing to GO. No talking, doobie smoking, make up doing, eating…….be ready to go. It is really easy. In NY half the 405 would make it through one green light because time is money. (not in Manhattan obviously but surrounding environs)
So being one of the 2 billion suffering do I get a free gift for signing up? Like a toaster? or just a muffin or something? @bdorman264 gave me a package of Toaster Muffins for subscribing to his blog.

Â @HowieSPMÂ Â @bdorman264Â Let’s cut to the chase, I don’t give away stale toaster muffins, but I can supply you with some very fine bagels. 😉
I hear you about the lights- makes me crazy too. That kind of crap you mentioned happens to me every day- irritating and a waste of time. When I am king of the world I will see that it is outlawed.

I just signed up for your newsletter. I like reading and have about 106 blogs in my reader and I really don’t mind reading much much more. As for reading your work, all ready! 🙂
TheJackB July 1, 2012 at 11:18 pm
Â @Hajra Â I appreciate it, thank you.

You are definitely a long distance runner! There comes a point in time when, after hitting and breaking through the wall, you just run, and run, and run. When you get to that point, the roots of the trees that trip you up, or the pouring rain that weighs you down, are just distractions, not failures-they actually serve to make you stronger!
That’s how it seems you’re living your “Newsletter Life”. Good for you. You’ve hit the “flow” of life. That’s when it’s all fun!

Â @CrossBetsyÂ The funny thing is that in real life I hate long distance running. It bores me to tears, but when I am motivated I am pretty good about finishing what I start.

Â @bdorman264Â A free subscription to your site is of value and as a marketer I can see numerous ways to promote it as such.
Good to see you sir.
