Call'in Out Sick!

Sorry! No e-zine mailout for almost 3 weeks. No, wasn't on vacation...I was SICK!

Not sure if I ate some bad salsa; or maybe the salsa cook came to work sick and the germs hibernated in the salsa mix. Nevertheless, The Boy (that would be me) was out for the count.

I'm talking chills, sweats, fever, sleep, and general tiredness. Forget about making money...I'll take HEALTH any day.

Today was the first day that I've felt whole since the first of September (2010). I even wrote a content web page today, as well as a BLOGGER blog post which was about my relationship with Infolinks (that's another story altogether).

Although I was gravely ill, I continued to report daily to my Paying Job. This gave me an idea to write about, "Calling Out Sick!" I have 250 sick hours, but never call out. What about you?

How many of you all out there, that still having a job, call out or dare to use your sick time? Perhaps, and you may disagree, that it is the work ITSELF that makes us sick. Moreover, are there folks that call out yet aren't really sick.

I have a cousin that is sick--C.O.P.D. (breathing issue). She's sick...can't work. But she's in a Catch-22; Why? She doesn't Dare Not report to work. No Sick time, no disability...no nothing.

Here's my conclusion. Not sick? Fabulous! Continue to take care of oneself and be grateful to the Divine Universe.

Others...well, I don't have any advice for you. I wish I did. But after being sick for a relatively short period of time. I am So GRATEFUL for being healthy.

Namaste; Peace to You and Yours...

Infolinks "Related Tags" helped me to Dream Like a Billionaire!

Infolinks is a Dream-Maker for Web Publishers! Why, because publishers can now give our visitors great contextual information via in-text ad linking. Have I lost you? Ok, let me put it this way...Infolinks' wizardry helped me to dream like a Billionaire.

Infolinks is the Web Publishing Industry's best revenue share program. They help 1000's of publishers to turn their web-content into money. Their Related Tags widget, upon implementation, increased my week-2-date revenue by Two-Hundred-Twenty-Three PERCENT! No foolin...

But back to my Billionaire-like Dream. Infolinks is all about info-mation, right? Of course, so I drifted off and began to dream about information, information, information. What if I could (I'm in my dream-state now as I speak) gather up all of the information that is contained within all of the volumes and volumes and volumes of books ever published.

My eyes are bloodshot; my feet are blistered from walking from library to library to library in search of information.

My door bells rings; I get up to answer. There's a company representative at my door from Infolinks, Inc. The company heard about my blood thirty quest for billionaire-like knowledge attainment--they must have heard about me in a similar dream as well. The Gentleman said, I'm here to help you to realize your dream (no pun intended). I asked, HOW?

He asked if I had a computer. Do I have a computer? Well, I'm a Web publisher...aren't I? Of course, I do.

Together, we visited a well-known and prominent yet nameless website. The site had Great Content! Moreover, there were relevant contextual keyworded (hyperlink) Infolinks Related Tags. Sure enough, there were two hyperlink tags that caught my eye. One was of course, BILLIONAIRE; the other, was knowledge. My right hand guided the computer mouse over the Related tag keyword link displaying the word, KNOWLEDGE.

Much, much, much to my surprise, an advertisement popped up within a new window. What did it say? It displayed the words and images of the Amazon Kindle with built-in WiFi. Scratching my head, I began to put two and two together.

Infolinks was suggesting, via the site's Related Tags, that I consider investigating and researching the possibility of acquiring a Kindle for my Knowledge quest. After all, The Lone Ranger had Tanto; Green Hornet had Kato. And Little Timmy had Lassie. It made perfect sense that I should have a Kindle.

Next thing I remember, my wife was kicking me. Seems as though I was screaming KINDLE...INFOLINKS...RELATED-TAGS at the top of my lungs during the night while in bed. The screams prevented her from getting a good night's sleep.

As great as Infolinks' Related Tags technology is, coupled with their Easy (Javascript) implementation, she wasn't feel'in it. She gave me two choices: Either I shut up about Infolinks, or find another bed to sleep in.

I say, Who cares...I've got Infolinks' Related Tags technology and a Brand New (Amazon) Kindle. Life doesn't get any better than that!
