It is October 2009, the internet was released to the public in 1992. I was born in 1993. Everybody expects super things from the internet, but it is still very young in technological terms. Watch this amazing presentation to see just what the internet is and how super it already is!
I think this slide show really makes us understand how young the internet really is and how much more it is going to change in the future. Remember, there is always a innovative idea somewhere… even in areas such as the internet that seems overcrowded. The end of originality is NOT here, and probably never will be!
Please let us all know what you think about this and what the internet will be like in just another 10 years!
As I previously mentioned, Success Circuit is going in for a complete makeover (well not complete, I am trying to change as little as possible but still give it a massive update). So before I get too far into the production stages, I want to know what you want.
What do you want to see from Success Circuit?
Do you have any ideas on how to improve the current theme/layout?
What kind of posts do you prefer?
If I was to interview just one more person, who would you wish it to be?
Please let me know anything that comes to your mind, absoloutly anything! Do not worry, there will still be real content before this upgrade comes.
As you know, things get old and boring very quick. The internet some how speeds up this process. So I have decided it is time to spice things up a little. Now, I have big plans for Success Circuit which shall hopefully begin implementation by the end of the month. No promises though!
However, as you know I visit ProBlogger.net (and.com!) a lot. The other day a post was written by Mary Jaksch of Goodlife Zen regarding a WordPress plugin called Apture. I am trying to cut down on plugins, which will hopefully be noticed very soon, but this plugin really amazed me. It looked so useful! So I have installed it, and it is not going away.
This is actually a test post to make sure Apture does everything that it looks like it does, so I am going to try to embed some videos or something in a minute using Apture. This plugin will allow you to have a lot more access to a lot of information by using links and embedded media. For example it can find me the link to information about Richard Branson or Mary Poppins!
I can also embed this interesting marketing mistakes video.
Have fun and if you are doing anything interesting let me know!
This was meant to be a short post highlighting some recent start ups and make overs… not any more. The original sites that I was going to speak about will still be on the post but there is also going to be many many more. Why? To celebrate ProBlogger.Com, a new forum run by the blogosphere’s biggest blogger, Darren Rowse. On the forums I asked for people’s websites, more than a few people replied!
If you like to do domaining or graphic design then there is a high change you have heard of The Hive Designs. But, did you know they have had a makeover? Completely new website! It looks absolutely amazing. Check their new site out, and if you need any design work then I completely recommend The Hive Designs. I have had designs from them before and they were very professional but more importantly… the price was nothing compared to what the designs were actually worth. So scoot off and go order some designs!
The Entrepreneur Club is a brand new community that is being created by Roland Millward. It is not officially launched yet so join now! Now, the best thing about his website and community is… IT IS FREE!!
Now I need to quickly mention Old Steamers, a brand new website about steam trains. The owner is Jamie House, Roland Millward’s nephew, so expect great things! By the way, this is his first website, so I am sure he will appreciate any help.
Income Diary is another of the sites I would like to mention. I think I have mentioned Michael Dunlop’s new website before… if not then check it out because it is VERY interesting and inspiring! A newer part of the site is his forum, which I recommend joining. I am an administrator there so expect to see me often.
Now for the reason why this list is so massive! PRO BLOGGER NOW HAS A FORUM! When I first saw the forum (a few days before release) I think it was about $20 a month. It is currently $1.95 and if you join now at that price then that is the only price you will ever have to pay! The best thing about this forum is the community and the amount of motivation everyone provides. UPDATE: I got the $20 a month wrong, it has now been put up to $5.95 which is still a complete bargain price for what is on offer!
