BLOG SCHEDULE



BLOG SCHEDULE

SOME OF YOU REGULAR BLOG READERS MAY HAVE NOTICED A SCHEDULE HAS DEVELOPED FOR THE BLOG THIS WINTER. IT'S HARD SOME DAYS TO WRITE A BLOG WHEN YOU'RE JUST SITTING STILL, WORKING, AND LIFE CAN BE AS BORING AS YOURS IS.

FIRST OFF, IT'S "UNCLE HANS FRIDAYS" YUP. NOW ALL YOU UNCLE HANS FANS CAN LOOK FORWARD TO AN UNCLE HANS BLOG ON FRIDAYS.

NEXT, IT'S MARY ON THURSDAYS. I'VE BEEN PRESSURING MARY TO BLOG ONCE A WEEK ON THURSDAYS.

NO BLOG ON SATURDAYS. SATURDAY IS A BUSY DAY AND YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO CHECK THE BLOG ANYWAY. SATURDAY HAS THE FEWEST READERS AND OF COURSE MONDAY IS THE BIGGEST DAY AS YOU RETURN TO WORK AND GET CAUGHT UP ON THE WEEK-END BLOGS.


BLOG CYBER-SPIKE

ABOUT TEN DAYS AGO WE HAD A SPIKE IN READERS. 233 DIFFERENT READERS IN ONE DAY. THE NEW READERS WERE ALL GOOGLE SEARCHES FOR "PINE SAP REMOVAL" AND THE BLOG SHOWED UP ON THE FIRST PAGE OF THE SEARCH AT THE #8 POSITION. WHY SO MANY PEOPLE WERE SEARCHING "PINE SAP REMOVAL" IS A MYSTERY TO ME. THE DAY BEFORE AND THE DAY AFTER WERE NORMAL WITH OUR REGULAR 100 READERS A DAY.

THE PUNCH LINE

"THE PUNCH LINE" QUOTES AT THE END OF MY BLOG RECENTLY ARE PLAGIARIZED FROM THE POPULAR COLUMNIST "NORM" IN THE LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL NEWSPAPER. THIS EYE PATCHED DAILY VEGAS COLUMNIST SEEMS TO HAVE HIS FINGER ON THE PULSE OF THE VEGAS SCENE.

SHOW ME THE MONEY

SOME OF YOU KNOW THAT LAST SPRING WE SPENT A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MONEY ON SOME INTERNET CLASSES AND PRODUCTS WITH THE GOAL OF MAKING SOME MONEY ON THE INTERNET. BASICALLY WE WERE SCAMMED AND SOMEBODY ELSE PROFITED ON OUR INVESTMENT.

THE SECRET TO INTERNET MARKETING IS TRAFFIC. THE MORE PEOPLE YOU GET TO YOUR BLOG OR WEBSITE THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES AT MAKING MONEY. OUR PROJECT WAS CALLED RECIPIESTOEAT.COM, AND WE HOPED TO DEVELOP A LIST OF CUSTOMERS AND A RECIPE EXCHANGE COMMUNITY TO MARKET TO. THE PROJECT FAILED, LIKE MOST, BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ENOUGH TRAFFIC TO ESTABLISH ANY PAYING CUSTOMERS.

WE HAVE DECIDED HOWEVER TO MOVE MARY'S FOOD BLOG OVER TO BLOGGER (FREE HOSTING) TO PRESERVE IT AND MARY ENJOYS WRITING ABOUT FOOD. THE ORIGINAL SITE, RECIPESTOEAT.COM WILL BE ACTIVE AND AVAILABLE UNTIL SPRING WHEN THEY WILL WANT US TO PAY HOSTING AND DOMAIN CHARGES FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

WHAT ABOUT THIS BLOG, THE HAPPY CAMPERS? WELL HERE ARE THE NOVEMBER NUMBERS, BEST MONTH EVER. I WROTE TWO BLOGS FOR WHICH I WAS PAID $5 EACH, WE HAD NO AFFILIATE SALES FROM THE ADS FOR FOOD SAVER OR CAMPING WORLD, AND WE EARNED $14.39 FROM THE GOOGLE ADS. OUR TRAFFIC AMOUNTED TO 3,577 PAGE LOADS.

THE MESSAGE HERE? IF YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT GETTING RICH QUICK ON THE INTERNET, "FORGET 'BOUT IT".

THANKS

THANK-YOU ALL FOR BEING LOYAL BLOG READERS, WITHOUT YOUR DAILY SUPPORT THIS HOBBY OF BLOGGING WOULDN'T BE ANY FUN AT ALL.

I, for one quite enjoy your blogs. You bring us into your family like we were members. We could run out for a beer any time. Uncle Hans is a free spirit in a very formalized profession. A breath of fresh air. (Two guys stunt) LOL.
I agree that the blogs will never make enough money to need a deposit ticket. But cyber friends can't be measured in dollars. Don't give up, because for the 100 loyal readers you would leave a hole in our daily lives.
