The Strategy That Attracted Over 1.6 Million Visitors!
A short while ago I update the Lucid SEO manual – it’s got some new links, some updated info, and I’ve streamlined it even further to make it as simple and straightforward as possible.
I quietly placed it on sale a couple of days ago for $27, but that’s [...]

Writers, who preferably, also have hands-on experience in some niche skill, with which they could earn hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, but that they’ve given up to pursue a career in writing [...]

Some will argue that, first and foremost, you should do what you’re good at, but most of the time that’s the same thing. If we’re good at something it’s often [...]
It’s a long-standing stereotype that British people love to queue.
It’s not so much that we love it – we moan about it as much as anyone else – more that we accept the polite conventions of queuing, such as maintaining a healthy distance from the person in front of you, tutting quietly (while inwardly seething) [...]
