Title: Bob Schmuck

As of right now, I've selected the a templet from Jon Waraas blog, Drunk Loser. I still need to talk to Jon because I've added and changed a few lines of code in the templete. For example, in photoshop, I changed the fonts on the left site navigation bar.

Growing into a network!

I would like to introduce you to my new network, “Growing Ground”. I’ve choose this name because the meaning is based on my websites being planted and grown from the ground up with each seed growing to become it’s own network, in the future.

The Network’s To-do List:
- Setup a website for the network.
- Tweak the design and logo.
- Finish adding it to all the pages of the sites in the network
- Setup a LLC, which I'm reading and learning about, now.

I would like talk about the sites in the network…
This Game site has grown from just 5 flash games as a seed in the beginning into a pleasant small plant with over 100 flash games. It’s my favorite site.
This site has over 50 pages and growing. It has information on anything related to airsoft guns with content on equipment, types of guns, games, safety precautions and more…
This game site was developed to target girly girls, who enjoy playing flash games with out blood or fighting. It’s actually my wife’s idea and site.
This site is still in development with information on talking boards more well know as Ouija boards. It has a page on related names for talking boards, which is rather interesting.
This site will have loads of information of the extreme sport of Paintballing. It’s still in development; however, it already has a great amount of information that can help any person interested in this sport.

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to some what keep most of my sites a secret but recently realizing that anyone who really wants to find out the sites that I own can easy find out with a little bit of researching. This is why I’ve decided to uncover my sites and talk about them more often.

Visiting the park

We drove to the park because the city has been displaying around 50 different large Santa cutouts in a small area of the park. If you were wondering who took the picture, we both did… First Meghan took a picture of me and then I exchanged spots with her and took a picture of her. When we got home she used Photoshop to merge the pictures together.

Did you know? It does get cold in Arizona. In the picture it was about 32 degrees. We were freezing! We’ve always lived in Arizona so we aren’t used to cold weather.

SEO: 301 Redirect

Yesterday, I was reading Jon Waraas’s Blog on using a 301 Redirect on all of his websites. He explains that using this little tip will send you to when you type This avoids search engines from giving credit. Instead your main address will receive the credit. Basically, this little tip on improving your ranking will merge the two addresses into one.

How to do this?
You might be wondering how you can do this little SEO tip too. All you have to do is access your .htaccess page and add the following code.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(.*)\.sitename\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Replace “sitename” and "TLD" with your site’s name and TLD.

I’ve decided to begin adding this code to all of my sites too. I’ve already added the code to my two flash game sites. 2 sites down 16 sites to go!

My Mother… The Super Writer!

You might know that Jan Pavis, an excellent writer and an Internet entrepreneur, is my mother. I would like to take this moment to tell everyone that she is one of the best online article writers around with the ability to write on any topic. I’m not just saying this because she is my mother. She’s been writing all her life and recently she’s been learning the differences from offline and online writing and catching on quickly too.

Lately, she has been receiving requests from other Internet Entrepreneurs that want articles so she decided to setup a page on her Blog for anyone wanting her writing service. If you need an article wrote, check her Writing Service Page. You won’t regret it!

Not only is she a great writer, she also helps other Internet Entrepreneurs improve their writing skills by explaining how she goes about researching a topic, writing an article, and much more. I would highly recommend reading these two posts:

Answering Questions...

Al has asked very good questions and I will answer them as best as I can. If anyone else have question just drop me a comment. :)

  1. Al’s first question, He asked, “Where did you get started?”
    The very first site I developed was in 2001 for my Boy Scout Eagle Project on the topic of Testicular Cancer. At that time, I wasn’t aware of the chance of making income from developing a site. It wasn’t until 2005 that I found out there was a chance of me making money online. I was studying and trying to develop sites for 4 years until I made my first $0.16 (July 1, 2005). Keep in mind I wasn’t trying to make any money during this time because I wasn’t aware that I could. The first month I started to try to make money was December 2005, which I made $33.76. Since then I’ve been studying and testing different layouts, ad placements, and more.

  2. Al’s Second question. He asked, “Where did you earn your first dollar on the web?"
    After moving my first site to its own domain name, I made my first $1.00 from AdSense. I don’t think I could explain the process of making your first dollar because it took me four years :). It was a great feeling knowing that I made a dollar without working for someone. The key in making your first dollar is to keep it simple, using trial & Error, and work to learn not money. When your are developing a site focus on using your site to help the people on your topic not on how much money the site will make at lease in the beginning. Also use your first site to test out different methods. The number one thing to do is use your thing between your sideburns.

Al, your goal on seeing a dollar amount in AdSense is a great idea. I remember when I first started, I set goals of making any amount of money and seeing a small amount in my AdSense account made me very happy. Think of it this way, every racer must start at the beginning of the track to reach the finish.

Keep your eye on the prize!
