Brain Drain

I have nothing to write about.

Seriously, I can’t think of a single thing. My mind looks like and old blinking DOS prompt right now (C:\_) . Thanks to a particularly challenging evening at work, my creativity is spent I have absolutely no ideas for unique and/or original content.

I suppose I could talk about how my iframe idea was a complete and total failure after only a day (50ish clicks, no conversions), and how I pulled the plug, but that would be a very short post. The only bright spot about that whole campaign today was that I received an email from the advertiser’s affiliate manager, saying that direct linking to the sales page is going to be here very soon. So, turning that one off for now and reactivating it later.

I guess I could also talk about a page that I found, one that I absolutely hate in every way imaginable. I was browsing zacjohnson.com today and I noticed that one of his top spots had the anchor text ‘John Chow sucks’, leading me to wonder who would use such an eye-catching title. After clicking on the link, I was led to this mind-bending monstrosity. I could easily go on for paragraphs about how I hate each and every aspect of that site, but that would be mean, so I won’t. Suffice it to say, it’s one of the worst ‘make money online’ blogs that I have ever seen.

Oh, and I guess I could talk about how I’ve already gotten a job offer at Get a Freelancer after being a member for only three days. The guy really wants me to write a few articles a month for him, but he’s not paying very well. I’m going to take a day to decide whether or not I’ll accept his offer.

I’m just in a bit of a rut at the moment. I’ll try to climb out by tomorrow.

My contest for five free somethings is still going. Go enter!
