Zucchini Cake

You know how it is when you are producing more zucchini's in the zucchini bed than you know what to do with. I had to figure out a creative way to use these beautiful vegetables without boring myself or my fellow diners.

This is a recipe that I found on internet one evening when I was looking for recipes that called for zucchini.

This cake is great because although it calls for THREE CUPS OF (grated) ZUCCHINI, the only hint of this in the final product are a few flecks of verigated green. I imagine he cake would also be great with walnuts or pecans or even raisins. I serve it without frosting but I imagine it would be yummy with carrot cake frosting or with a wedge of sharp cheese.

Combine the following into a large bowl (or pot)
3 cups of grated zucchini
3 cups sugar
1.5 cups canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs (chicken eggs)

Add to the above mixture
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of cloves

Now you have one big wet mixture right? Now add that wet mixture to the following dry mixture

4.5 cups of flour
1.5 teaspoons of baking soda
1.5 teaspoons of salt
.5 teaspoons of baking powder

Okay what you have now is what looks like lumpy cake batter. Good. Pour this batter into the appropriate number of baking pans/dishes.

I actually pour into one square pyrex backing dish and save the batter in the refrigerator to make a fresh cake on another day. These days of zucchini "high season" I am making several cakes a week! With this one recipe you can make probably 3 cakes.

Bake for about 50 minutes at 325 degrees Farenheit. I generally turn off the oven and let the cake continue to sit there for a good 10 minutes more. Of course you can do the good ol' toothpick test to find out if the cake is "done.""

I always get rave reviews for this cake. It is very moist and very delicious. :)

Breathing Exercises

Did you know this?
Shallow breathing causes one to tire out faster, adds stress, reduces the relaxation level, reduces the body oxygenation level and results in poor functioning of all body systems (digestive, respiratory, glandular, circulatory and nervous).

This comes from Project Armannd. Breathing evenly and regularly is something that I am working on. These exercises I found simple and effective. I hope you enjoy them, too.

  • Lie on your back and put a book on your stomach. Relax and inhale deeply into your abdomen so that the book rises. Exhale - the book should fall. Do this for 3-4 minutes every morning and before going to sleep.
  • Sit. Place the right hand on your abdomen and the left hand on your chest. Breathe deeply so that your right hand will rise and fall while your stomach should stay relatively still. Do this for 2 minutes. As you breathe in, count to 4, hold for 2, and release your breath in 4 counts.
  • Alternate nose breathing. It’s purpose is to relieve stress and what you basically need to do is to breathe in one nostril and out the other. Then breathe in the second nostril and out the first. Breathe in the left nostril to the count of 6, while using your finger to hold the right nostril closed. Hold your breath for 3 counts. Release the right nostril and while your left nostril is closed, breathe out in the count of 6. Breathe back in the right nostril for 6 count. Hold for 3 counts. Release the left and breathe out to the count of 6 while the right nostril is closed. Repeat this a couple of times.
  • Lie flat on floor or mattress, the head unsupported. Relax the muscles all over the body, then inhale deeply with the diaphragm only, raising the wall of the abdomen just below the ribs without elevating either the chest or the lower abdomen. Take about four seconds to inhale, then exhale in twice that length of time, contracting the abdomen below the ribs.
  • Lie on your back on a bed or couch, knees raised. Relax thoroughly, exhale and hold the breath after exhalation. While doing so, push the abdomen out and draw it in as far as possible each way. Repeat these movements as long as you can hold the breath without straining, then breathe deeply and regularly for several minutes, then repeat the massage movements.
  • With hands at sides or on hips, inhale and exhale slowly and deeply, bringing the entire respiratory apparatus into active play.

Long Time No See!

It has been ages...well maybe a month! Let's see what is today's date? How many "daily posts" have I missed?

Today is July that's 12 days of July and then let's see June 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 30...or something like that. Wow! 27 days, 27 posts skipped.

To make that up I'd need to do 2 or three post-posts and 1 current-post everyday from ttoday to the end of this month, July.

Oh, yeah and then there are the study/execution goals that I laid out for myself a few weeks ago! Boy oh boy am I behind schedule!

So what to do?

Dedicate 2 90minute periods every day but Sunday. On Sunday work 8 90 minute periods. Yeah, that ought to get me back into the groove so that by the the time August rolls around I can either drop the daily sessions or drop the intense Sunday madness. lol

Okay, so now to find all of my Twitter tool pals and open them up onto tabs.

Reporter vs Expert: Why Most Bloggers Are Stuck Reporting

There are basically two types of bloggers in the world - reporters and experts - and some people perform both roles (usually the experts, it's hard for reporters to become experts, but it's easy for experts to report).

If you have ever taken an Internet marketing course or attended a seminar specifically for beginners, you have probably heard about the two different methodologies. Whenever the business model is based on content, and if you blog for money then the model is based on content, people are taught to either start as reporters, or if possible step up as experts.

I'll be frank; you want to be the expert.

Reporters leverage the content of the experts and in most cases people start off as reporters because they haven't established expertise. Experts enjoy the perks of preeminence, higher conversion rates because of perceived value, it's easier to get publicity, people are more likely to seek you out rather than you having to seek others out, joint ventures come easier, etc� experts in most cases simply make more money and attract more attention.

Most Bloggers Are Reporters

The thing with expertise is that it requires something - experience. No person becomes an expert without doing things and learning. Bloggers usually start out without expertise and as a result begin their blogging journey by talking about everything going on in their niche (reporting) and by interviewing and talking about other experts (reporting again).

There's nothing wrong with reporting of course and for many people it's a necessity at first until you build up some expertise. Unfortunately the ratios are pretty skewed when it comes to reporters and experts - there are a lot more reporters than there are experts, hence reporters tend to struggle to gain attention and when they do, they often just enhance the reputation of the expert they are reporting on.

Don't Replicate Your Teacher

If you have ever spent some time browsing products in the learn Internet marketing niche you will notice a pattern. Many people first study Internet marketing from a �guru� (for lack of a better term). The guru teaches how he or she is able to make money online, and very often the view that the student gleams is that in order to make money online you have to teach others how to make money online.

The end result of this process is a huge army of amateurs attempting to replicate what their teacher does in the same industry - the Internet marketing industry - not realizing that without expert status based on a proven record and all the perks that come with it, it's next to impossible to succeed.

Even people, who enjoy marginal success, say for example growing an email list of 1,000 people, then go out and launch a product about how to grow an email list of 1,000 people. Now I have no problems with that, I think it's fine to teach beginners and leverage whatever achievements you have, the problem is that people gravitate to the same niche - Internet marketing - and rarely have any key points of differentiation.

How many products out there do you know of that all claim to teach the same things - email marketing, SEO, pay per click, affiliate marketing, and all the sub-niches that fall under the category of Internet marketing. It's a saturated market, yet when you see your teachers and other gurus making money teaching others how to make money (and let's face it - making money as a subject is one of the most compelling) - your natural inclination is to follow in their footsteps.

If the key is to become an expert and you haven't spent the last 5-10 years making money online, I suggest you look for another niche to establish expertise in.

Report on Your Process, Not Others

The secret to progress from reporter to expert is not to focus on other experts and instead report on your own journey. When you are learning how to do something and implementing things day by day, or studying other people's work, you need to take your process and what you do as a result of what you learn, and use it as content for your blog.

It's okay to talk about experts when you learn something from them, but always relate it to what you are doing. If you learn a technique from an expert it's fine to state you learned it from them (and affiliate link to their product too!) but you should then take that technique, apply it to what you are doing and then report back YOUR results, not there's. Frame things using your opinion - your stories - and don't regurgitate what the expert said. The key is differentiation and personality, not replication.

Expertise comes from doing things most people don't do and then talking about it. If you do this often enough you wake up one day as an expert, possibly without even realizing how it happened, simply because you were so good at reporting what you did.

You Are Already An Expert

Most people fail to become experts (or perceived as experts) because they don't leverage what they already know. Every person who lives a life learns things as they go, takes action every day and knows something about something. The reason why they never become an expert is because they choose not to (which is fine for some, not everyone wants to be an expert), but if your goal is to blog your way to expertise and leave the world of reporting behind you have to start teaching and doing so by leveraging real experience.

Experience can come from what you do today and what you have done previously; you just need to take enough steps to demonstrate what you already know and what you are presently learning along your journey. I know so many people in my life, who are experts simply by virtue of the life they have lived, yet they are so insecure about what they know, they never commit their knowledge to words for fear of�well fear.

Blogs and the Web in general, are amazing resources when you leverage them as a communication tool to spread your expertise because of the sheer scope of people they can reach. If all you ever do is talk to people in person and share your experience using limited communication mediums, you haven't much hope of becoming an expert. Take what you know and show other people through blogging, and you might be surprised how people change their perception of you in time.

Reporting Is A Stepping Stone

If your previous experience and expertise is from an area you want to leave behind or you are starting from �scratch�, then reporting is the path you must walk, at least for the short term.

Reporting is a lot of fun. Interviewing experts, talking about what other people are doing and just being part of a community is not a bad way to blog. In many cases people make a career of reporting (journalism is about just that), but if you truly want success and exponential results, at some point you will have to stand up and proclaim yourself as someone unusually good at something and then proceed to demonstrate it over and over again.

Have patience and focus on what you do to learn and then translate that experience into lessons for others, and remember, it's okay to be a big fish in a small pond, that's all most experts really are.

10 Blog Traffic Tips

p>In every bloggers life comes a special day - the day they first launch a new blog. Now unless you went out and purchased someone else's blog chances are your blog launched with only one very loyal reader - you. Maybe a few days later you received a few hits when you told your sister, father, girlfriend and best friend about your new blog but that's about as far you went when it comes to finding readers.

Here are the top 10 techniques new bloggers can use to find readers. These are tips specifically for new bloggers, those people who have next-to-no audience at the moment and want to get the ball rolling.

It helps if you work on this list from top to bottom as each technique builds on the previous step to help you create momentum. Eventually once you establish enough momentum you gain what is called "traction", which is a large enough audience base (about 500 readers a day is good) that you no longer have to work too hard on finding new readers. Instead your current loyal readers do the work for you through word of mouth.

Top 10 Tips

10. Write at least five major "pillar" articles. A pillar article is a tutorial style article aimed to teach your audience something. Generally they are longer than 500 words and have lots of very practical tips or advice. This article you are currently reading could be considered a pillar article since it is very practical and a good "how-to" lesson. This style of article has long term appeal, stays current (it isn't news or time dependent) and offers real value and insight. The more pillars you have on your blog the better.

9. Write one new blog post per day minimum. Not every post has to be a pillar, but you should work on getting those five pillars done at the same time as you keep your blog fresh with a daily news or short article style post. The important thing here is to demonstrate to first time visitors that your blog is updated all the time so they feel that if they come back tomorrow they will likely find something new. This causes them to bookmark your site or subscribe to your blog feed.

You don't have to produce one post per day all the time but it is important you do when your blog is brand new. Once you get traction you still need to keep the fresh content coming but your loyal audience will be more forgiving if you slow down to a few per week instead. The first few months are critical so the more content you can produce at this time the better.

8. Use a proper domain name. If you are serious about blogging be serious about what you call your blog. In order for people to easily spread the word about your blog you need a easily rememberable domain name. People often talk about blogs they like when they are speaking to friends in the real world (that's the offline world, you remember that place right?) so you need to make it easy for them to spread the word and pass on your URL. Try and get a .com if you can and focus on small easy to remember domains rather than worry about having the correct keywords (of course if you can get great keywords and easy to remember then you've done a good job!).

7. Start commenting on other blogs. Once you have your pillar articles and your daily fresh smaller articles your blog is ready to be exposed to the world. One of the best ways to find the right type of reader for your blog is to comment on other people's blogs. You should aim to comment on blogs focused on a similar niche topic to yours since the readers there will be more likely to be interested in your blog.

Most blog commenting systems allow you to have your name/title linked to your blog when you leave a comment. This is how people find your blog. If you are a prolific commentor and always have something valuable to say then people will be interested to read more of your work and hence click through to visit your blog.

6. Trackback and link to other blogs in your blog posts. A trackback is sort of like a blog conversation. When you write a new article to your blog and it links or references another blogger's article you can do a trackback to their entry. What this does is leave a truncated summary of your blog post on their blog entry - it's sort of like your blog telling someone else's blog that you wrote an article mentioning them. Trackbacks often appear like comments.

This is a good technique because like leaving comments a trackback leaves a link from another blog back to yours for readers to follow, but it also does something very important - it gets the attention of another blogger. The other blogger will likely come and read your post eager to see what you wrote about them. They may then become a loyal reader of yours or at least monitor you and if you are lucky some time down the road they may do a post linking to your blog bringing in more new readers.

5. Encourage comments on your own blog. One of the most powerful ways to convince someone to become a loyal reader is to show there are other loyal readers already following your work. If they see people commenting on your blog then they infer that your content must be good since you have readers so they should stick around and see what all the fuss is about. To encourage comments you can simply pose a question in a blog post. Be sure to always respond to comments as well so you can keep the conversation going.

4. Submit your latest pillar article to a blog carnival. A blog carnival is a post in a blog that summarizes a collection of articles from many different blogs on a specific topic. The idea is to collect some of the best content on a topic in a given week. Often many other blogs link back to a carnival host and as such the people that have articles featured in the carnival often enjoy a spike in new readers.

To find the right blog carnival for your blog, do a search at

3. Submit your blog to To be honest this tip is not going to bring in a flood of new readers but it's so easy to do and only takes five minutes so it's worth the effort. Go to Blog Top Sites, find the appropriate category for your blog and submit it. You have to copy and paste a couple of lines of code on to your blog so you can rank and then sit back and watch the traffic come in. You will probably only get 1-10 incoming readers per day with this technique but over time it can build up as you climb the rankings. It all helps!

2. Submit your articles to This is another tip that doesn't bring in hundreds of new visitors immediately (although it can if you keep doing it) but it's worthwhile because you simply leverage what you already have - your pillar articles. Once a week or so take one of your pillar articles and submit it to Ezine Articles. Your article then becomes available to other people who can republish your article on their website or in their newsletter.

How you benefit is through what is called your "Resource Box". You create your own resource box which is like a signature file where you include one to two sentences and link back to your website (or blog in this case). Anyone who publishes your article has to include your resource box so you get incoming links. If someone with a large newsletter publishes your article you can get a lot of new readers at once.

1. Write more pillar articles. Everything you do above will help you to find blog readers however all of the techniques I've listed only work when you have strong pillars in place. Without them if you do everything above you may bring in readers but they won't stay or bother to come back. Aim for one solid pillar article per week and by the end of the year you will have a database of over 50 fantastic feature articles that will work hard for you to bring in more and more readers.

I hope you enjoyed my list of traffic tips. Everything listed above are techniques I've put into place myself for my blogs and have worked for me, however it's certainly not a comprehensive list. There are many more things you can do. Finding readers is all about testing to see what works best for you and your audience and I have no doubt if you put your mind to it you will find a balance that works for you.

Give Those Knees a Hand!

Uh, oh...knees have started buckling...bending the WRONG way! So I need to work on giving the knees more support.

Here is a copy and paste that found in the LATimes online May 19, 2009:

Most of us know that a good way to protect our knees is to strengthen the muscle above the knees with simple quad exercises. But, for added support, it's also important to keep your hips and hamstrings flexible. Here's a side-lying stretch that targets your hips and hamstrings.

-- Karen Voight

Step 1: Lie on your side, legs straight, with your feet, hips and shoulder stacked. Rest your head in your hand (or place it down on your forearm with your elbow forward). Bend your left knee and place your left foot flat on the floor in front of your right knee. While maintaining your balance, use your left hand to gently press your left thigh back until your left knee points toward the ceiling. Resist rolling backward by keeping your left hip over your right hip.

Step 2: Grasp the big toe of your left foot with the first two fingers of your left hand. Slowly straighten your left knee until the sole of your left foot faces the ceiling. Press up firmly through your left heel to stretch the back of your left leg. Pause for a few seconds. Relax and breathe evenly. Release your foot, bend your knee and reverse the position to do this stretch on the other side.

Homemade Vitamin Water

This is called "agua" in Mexico. When someone offers you "agua" in Mexico it may not actually be a glass of clear drinking water but rather water with a single blended fruit. Papaya, watermelon, and guava are all popular. Generally, these are strained before serving. The melons however don't really need straining to have a smooth, non-grainy texture.


Water (fit to drink)
Melon (your choice)
Sweetner (your choice)

Remove melon rind. Remove seeds if desired. Cut melon into small chunks suitable to put in a blender. Have an empty pitcher or 4L/1Gal empty water jug with funnel available. Blend the melon chunks with water. You may have severl blender-pitcherfuls. :) Make as dilute or concentrated as you like. Sweeten to taste.

If you make more than you can consume in 3 hours you might want to refrigerate to keep from spoiling.

My Life on Twitter


How? USED TO BE day and night in whatever way I could imagine! (That´s righ-- in bed--under the covers even the way my father read comic books after the official¨"lights out" when he was a youngster) lol Yes, there was a period of maybe 2 weeks when I was on Twitter at least 15 hours in every 24! I'd wake up to tweet and fall asleep tweeting! Now, in order to keep my stats attractive to bots and to people, I use TweetLater which allows me to create tons of tweets, then have them automatically released at regular intervals in the time frame I dictate. In this way, on my public time line there is at least one tweet every hour or two, whether I am in the driver's seat or not.

My Twitter Routine 90 minutes
~used to be twice a day and INCLUDE Step (7)~

SET TIMER and START timer (90 minutes)

Check the day's post and write one or more posts for future publication. Tweet the day's new post.

Read the first page of my timeline and make adjustments as needed: e.g. responding with a tweet or with an unfollow & block. Respond to DMs & @SofiaMiller's. Biotweet a few to say TY to pepole who visit the blog, to people who RT my tweets and other followers at random.

Reciprocate all new followers that have yet to be reciprocated automatically.
Flush all non-reciprocating people who may be among the people I am following.

ONLY IF NEEDED: Read and delete all DMs. Respond as appropriate. Read all @SofiaMiller and respond as needed. Do RETWEETS HERE. Done in two clicks.

Tweet 12 health fitness tweets with link

Add about 200 to 400 (the more the better) new people to my "following" list. Listen to music or something educational during the process. (this step I do just once a day) Basically I follow DOUBLE the number that I want to folow me back. If more follow back that's great. I count on 50% however.

UPLOAD the 12 health and fitness tweets tweeted in step (6). And as time permits upload more, fresh tweets. Re-set my automation as might be needed. . Focus on health & fitness. Ideally I'd like to have 24 tweets per day pre-set. On May 28th I was up to 15/day of automated tweets.

Also during this time is opened in the event I'm inclined to write a long response to a tweet.

My Twitter Bio

Having a Twitter bio full of key words is important to attract people and robots looking for twitterers with certain interests. I am a woman of many interests however for the purpose of this account I elected to narrow my interests to health and fitness. This is my current bio.

Fitness Fanatic & Health Nut Guru (in training). Follow me; I'll follow back

  • Short and focused
  • Key words that are true, informative and energetic
  • Promise (an attractive offer)
  • Link to the list of People to Follow on Twitter which is manually updated weekly
I took my picture down and replaced it with a Twitter badge. Now I think a picture related to fitness and health is in order. Could be a picture of me engaged in some activity. But probably I won't use a picture of me because I'd rather not attract people online based on my good looks and/or my gender. ;)


I want to have a Twitter account that attracts followers because having a base of people who want to interact with me, want to hear what me have to say and want to share with me what they have to say is one of the hallmarks of social media and Twitter has become one of the main hubs of social media of late.

I am involved with social media for fun, education (both ways) and for income. Ultimately I am earning an income through my affiliation with specific vendors and products that I like, use and/or want to use.

My Public Timeline & My Use of DMs

It is in my Public Timeline that I place affiliate links at a rate of 2 to 6 per 24 hours. On that timeline I also place quotes of other people, personal thoughts and opinions, links to specific blog posts of mine and of others, BioTweets, ad hoc questions (for feedback which I end up incorpoarting into blog content) and a List of People to Follow on Twitter.

Personally I think my Public Timeline is motivating, engaging and at times both provocative and inspiring.

So my contribution to my Public Timeline is on automatic, kind of. I spend my time filling the machine which belts out the tweets at regular intervals that I pre-dictate. Also I tweet directly to twitter--Step (6) above.

When I go to twitter I clean up my DMs and respond to any DMs and @SofiaMiller items that stimulate response. Sometimes I have been moved to unfollow and block people based on what I found in these places. lol It's all good, Tweeps! I'm just on a mission and some distractions I'd rather not spend the energy ignoring. ;)

I find myself using DMs more and more because I am cultivating relationships am collaborating with individuals in a ways that don't fall into the health & fitness category. My many interests needn't all be represented in my Twitter account!


So my life on Twitter has been considerably streamlined. I love having a routine checklist and opening all the required site tabs in Firefox. I spend 90 minutes in the morning working on Twitter. I was increasing followers in a systematic and partially automated way (topic of an ebook which I am looking to produce this month--to give away) Now my followeers increase because people folow me and I reciprocate (or block, lol). Also I use Twit Pro Quo. (See Twitter Apps in the sidebar if you are not familiar with Twit Pro Quo and you want to be familiar with TwitProQuo)

Generally, I read through 1-2 pages of tweets and respond as so moved. If I find someone's tweeting annoying or offensive I weed them out. No big deal to them and more peace of mind for me. Even though I don't spend a lot of time reading my Public Timeline, I DO contribute LOTS of tweets EVERY DAY both publicly and through DM.

Oh, and did I neglect to mention: Nowadays I flush out pepole who I find myself following but not being followed back. I use InRev TwitIn (bum name, I know. Find InRev TwitIn under Twitter Apps in sidebar if you want.)

What is YOUR life on Twitter like?

Mastermind Alliance

The Mastermind principle consists of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common definite objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others. (Napoleon Hill)

The harmony comes from shared affirmations and good will. The cooperation comes from being able to brainstorm together ask for and receive input and/or advice and/or shared experience. This is also good because there is a witness and that "accountability partner" may be just the support I/you need to Get IT DONE

If you want to mastermind with me let me know. :) Send me a DM on twitter

Success is the Only Alternative

@AmirK25 Humm...let's first solve problems, then set goals, then set the conditions that make realizing those goals INEVITABLE! (thanks Eben and I'm not even a paying client YET!)

I'll take time tonight to write a list of my challenges/desires. Maybe you could do the same.

Maybe we could come up with solutions to those problems and make those solutions steps HAPPEN inevitably and thereby lead to the resolution/solution of those problems INEVITABLE...

1. List of Challenges & Desires...pick one to work on first!
2. Make a flow chart for the solution
3. Put the steps (each taking less than one day to complete) on a calendar
4. Figure out the conditions necessary that will make the steps happen.

Anyone interested in doing this exercise and then forming a MasterMind Alliance? We can meet on Twitter once a week. ;) Or Skype conference call...which reminds me I have some Skype minutes to tickle.

These are the challenges & desires, written as affirmations (as if they are already true) This is the outcome I elect to focus on now.

  • My behavior is congruent with my desired results.
  • My USA mail is taken care of
  • I touch palms to floor with ease
  • I generate $2,000-10,000/month income through online activity
  • I have 10 contacts in 10 countries
  • I live with plants, flowers and their fruits.
  • I am debt free.
  • My income is 100x my expenses.
  • My uterus is normal
  • I own 2,500 ounces of silver
  • I feed my subconscious carefully and generously.

Flow Chart to reach desired outcome
  1. Make a list of profit centers and revenue per transaction; Order them from high to low
  2. Establish Web 2.0 identities to market products being sold
  3. Identify/Create sales pages; Identify/Create pre-sales pages
  4. Set up Social Media to lead to pre-sales pages
  5. Set up Social Media to lead to sales pages
  1. May 24 to May 31 Profit Centers*
  2. June 1 to June 8 Web 2.0 Product Focused Identities
  3. June 9 to June 17 Identify/Create Sales & Pre-sales pages
  4. June 18 to June 25 Set up Metrics monitor and monitored links
  5. June 26 to July 3 Set up Social Media to lead to pre-sales pages
  6. July 4 to July 11 Set up Social Media to lead to sales pages

Conditions that make the outcome inevitable

(1) Morning Routine
  • Wake Up and Feel Good Envision Future Me
  • Drink about 2c/500ml water
  • Get Up and Tidy Space
  • Wash Up & Dress
  • Exercise
  • Plan Day then Take Action*
(2) Mastermind Alliance
  • Half an hour before and half an hour after 10 hour work day
  • Use structure suggested by Chicken Soup guy lol (find that today and tweet it)
(3) Become a GURU in each product area (start with one area and complete it then move to another area)
  • write an ebook, How to Get 5,000 Followers on Twitter in 30 Days
  • Begin a "list" by giving away the ebook
  • document progress in blog...self coaching lol
*How to Structure Work Day

Every Sunday plan the week's work and drop it into the appropriate area. Daily start with the first category and work for 4 hours, then move to the second category, then the the third. As things are accomplished during the week, cross them off the list. As new things come up drop them at the bottom of the list in the appropriate category. On the following Sunday. Make a new work sheet based on what still remains on the previous sheet and whatever new phase needs to be started.
  • 4 hrs Lead Generation ~Putting leads in front of Products (Driving Traffic)
  • 3 hrs Improve Conversion Rates ~Create/Improve Content & Conversion Rates
  • 3 hrs Business Management ~Administrative Tasks
*As it turns out, June 1-8 item is the only target of THAT list intended for June, see post of June 2 "My June Challenge"

If you'd like to be part of my June MasterMind Alliance and if you'd like me to be part of yours feel free to become one of my Yahoo IM contacts. You ca find me with mangosofia@ yahoo dot com

Consider Your Death

Let the inevitability of your death motivate you to consciously and deliberately use the finite life-time you've got left.

From my long tweet to a twitter friend
May I suggest that you consider your death. Pretend that in 75 (or any number you choose) years you will be dead. Pretend that you have 75 (or any number you choose) years more to live. What do you want to do? What do you want to have? Where do you want to be? WHAT WILL THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE BE? Consider that, as you imagine it, as you would like it to be. Write it down. That's what I suggest.

I see myself as optimally fit and in a household self sufficient in food, water & electricity...premium internet fertile mountains with a view of the sea...I'll re-visit and revise this post at regular intervals.

Wake Up Productive

6 Step Morning Routine

  1. Wake Up and Feel Good Invision Future Me
  2. Drink about 2c/500ml water
  3. Get Up and Tidy Space
  4. Brush Teeth & Wash Up
  5. Exercise
  6. Plan Day then Take Action
How to Structure your Day
40% Lead Generation ~Putting leads in front of Products (Driving Traffic)
30% Improve Conversion Rates ~Create/Improve Content & Conversion Rates
30% Business Management ~Administraive tasks

Instead of creating a new list everyday I will create a Master to do list on Friday drop each task into one of the above categories and then start from the top and tackle one task at a time and work on it until it is finished. As new tasks come up I'll add them to the list in the appropriate category.

What I am sure will develop is a "routine" in each category so I'll do the "oe time" task and then do the daily dailies in each category.

To increase productivty I will use a tiimer so that every 90 minutes I am taking a break for 10-20 minutes to stretch, play, walk outside, drink water, whatever

I stumbled upon Matty Thompsons recording of his MLM Goldmine 90 Day is Day 1

I would love to do Wake Productive Home Study Course. Now I have access to Dennis Karganilla's 90 Say Challenge by using this: to search Youtube daily Dennis Karganilla 90 Day Challenge "Day 1"

I can do this daily and then record my activity on that particular day of the challenge.
In fact, for June I haven't decided which project to focus on other than to know "it's not a numbers game". My aim is NOT to get Twitter followers.

I DO intend to go through and implement one of the following:
  1. Wake Up Productive Home Study Course ($)
  2. Dennis Karganilla (time to scour You Tube looking for clues and piecing together what the heck the challenge was-90 steps!)
  3. Darren Rowse (comes in email, one step per day for 31 days)SofiaMiller31Days to Building a BetterBlog (Darren Rowse aka Problogger)
  4. John Chow (downloadable ebook)SofiaMillerJohn Chow's free ebook "How to Make Money Online" ~ top of his sidebar above fold, can't miss it!
  5. Yaro Starak (downloadable multimedia ebook)SofiaMiller~POSSIBLE~ game for June: Yaro's Blog Profits Blueprint ... Read More:
  6. Jeremy Shoemaker (comes in email one chapter per day for 30-90 days I don't remember)
And I do intend to have at least ONE collaborative project with at least one of my TwitterFriends b/c ultimately I do want to have a masterind alliance in the sense of the phrase made famous by Napoleon Hill in The 17 Principles.

At this point I'm leaning towards Yaro Starak's Blogging for Profits plus two niche on migraines and one on interior air quality or some other narrow niche...oh yeah and I want to create an information product...

BioTweet (n.) (v.)

So what is a "BioTweet". It is a way I introduce all who follow me to a fellow Twitterer by tweeting the content of his/her Twitter bio.

Here is what happens when I biotweet:

Some biotweeted ME!
loopy2cute bio of @SofiaMiller Focus on fitness + personal development. Avid student of sustainability + communities. Right back at ya! :)

Some biotweeted OTHER PEOPLE (making me a trendsetter once again)

Budjette Bio of @dbgrady "Novelist, freelance writer and columnist. Former US Army paratrooper and war vet. New father and really tired" :-)

moomettesgram Bio of JoyntHeir, Author of Be The Weight You Want

Some RTd my biotweets

FreeBeing RT @SofiaMiller Bio of @ammafrida I am from Iceland and live on a small farm there

amirk25 RT @SofiaMiller: Bio of @howtostayfit your personal fitness trainer. Just follo... Read More:

RandomReTwitRT @SofiaMiller bio of @wecomparebooks Grad student and owner of a textbook comparison site. Save tons of cash!

And then some gave me direct feedback

IHospitalitySam@SofiaMiller Hey Sofia - how is your Saturday night? Still diggin' the bio posting idea.

RishiTalreja @SofiaMiller You do a nice thing by including the bio of people you recommend..more people should start doing that :)

From today's flurries of biotweeting:

dcoakley@SofiaMiller What did I do to deserve such a nice gesture? A 'biotweet'... nice.

from @dawizonline
@SofiaMiller TY 4 your Tweeting my Bio Sofia. I am now following you as a direct result. Please visit :o)

from @Manchuriano
@SofiaMiller thank's Sofia you're awesome ;)
I got lots of thank you's.

I think this is a great way to build community, familiarity and more cross linkages, cross polinations, more interconnectedness. I will continue to use this at random AND to rave about someone whose tweets I particularly enjoy like Rishi or Matai...both make me laugh out loud. It's great.

What do you think about BioTweets? Do you use them?

Friday, May 29, 2009

Just for the Record...

@SofiaMiller gets my bronze #FollowFriday recommendation, simply because if she reaches 5K followers by the 31st, she'll write a book ...

@MatchesMalone You're funny. "WHEN" not "if" ! Oh, and I WAS planning on giving it away for free. 5k without BUYING anything from anybody

MatchesMalone@SofiaMiller Well, you've got two plus what's left of this day to get over 550.... Free books are cool. I'll even do a review for you :)

This person has 1990 followers, his/her start date was 9 July 2007. This person,imho, doesn't want to "review" the book, he/she wants to STUDY the book, lol. (Well it will be a recipe worth implementing if more Twitter followers is one's aim.)

It's all good, my TwitterFriend @MatchesMalone. (Revel in all of this back-link love) But lighten up on the jabs. As you see from this post, I'm easily distracted and I've got work to do! You wouldn't want to be non-supportive of a Twitter Buddy, now would you? lol

Anyway here we are...
589 to go BETWEEN today Friday 11:17AM Mexico City time to Sunday 11:50PM Mexico City time.

I can do it, you can do it, we can do it!

Thank you for all of your support and TwitterLove. Next month will NOT be a number-of-Twitter-followers game. But I'll keep tweeting the good stuff. Promise. ;)

...Shaheen Jafargholi! Yes!!!

5 Easy Steps to a Happy Colon

How to clear your colon and keep it clear, you ask? It's a cinch.

(1) Consume lots of clean water and raw fruits and vegetables
Grow your own, buy organic, or buy the tainted type. Use what is available.

(2) Lemonade Diet (Master Cleanse) 10 to 20 days every 3 or 4 months (buy the book and put the diet days on your calendar. Make sure to allow a week beforehand to get your head right and to get your supplies.)

(3) Retention enemas of water or coffee (NOW you know how I take my coffee)

(4) Psyllium & Bentonite shakes on days when otherwise not eating

(5) Series of colon irrigation treatments using either colema board technique at home or with the help of a machine and a professional colon hydrotherapist.

Adult Play

We don't stop playing because we grow old; We grow old because we stop playing~Shaw (via @MarvinTowler via @Java4Two)

So for sure part of our reverse-aging lifestyle, @LORI_SF, could be PLAY! and although I make my work online a game, my housework a game, it's not quite PHYSICAL enough, not quite laughin-out-loud-often-enough! So...

...while in Mexico from this day forward I will seek and find a dog or child to play tag with for 10 to 20 minutes every day. (Mexico is full of children and dogs so this'll be easy)

What games do you play, physical or otherwise, that make you laught bring you joy?

spornaso@SofiaMiller if this is an open response, then mine are scrabble, nertz (card game), bridge, canasta, boggle, risk, cubris 2, & free cell.

moon@SofiaMiller I play Twitter

spreadingjoy@SofiaMiller I think of myself as a grownup kid. I love games, amusement pks, reading and having fun. I know fun has its place but luv it

spreadingjoy@SofiaMiller I love playing with my kids 18 & 14 - but my 18yr old says I'm starting to throw like a girl..LOL. I try and have fun everyday

ellenfeinbergHey Sofia - i read your blog - love it - I don't have kids but I play with other peoples children all the time - it's so much fun.

Yep, me too Ellen. It IS so much fun!
BoomerWoman@SofiaMiller Read your blog. Games? Lately, I've been playing the card came UNO a couple of times a week.

Great. Thanks.

Feel free to leave comments here. No more post updates from copy and pastes from Twitter. ;)

What Exercise Should I Do to Lose 10 Pounds?

EdEntrepreneur@SofiaMiller What is the best exercise for a guy over 40 that wants to shed 10 pounds?

@EdEntrepreneur Given that everyone is different...I would suggest eating less and maintaining your current level of motion,


eating less and increasing your level of motion by incorporating extra motion into your day such as know taking stairs instead of elevators, parking further away from where you are going, interrupting your activity every 90 minutes and going outside for a brief walk and some air, etc.

You could eat less by only eating when you are hungry and stopping when in fact you are not hungry. This happens waaay before that "stuffed" feeling. lol

I lost at least 10 poound in 10 days by eating ONCE every other day. But I don't recommend that.

If you insist on a specific "exercise" to loose weight do ANYTHING (any motion) that you will actually STICK WITH and DO.

Additonal expenditure of energy with the same amount (or less) of (food) consumed will mean that your body, necessarily, has to look to it's own flesh for the energy deficit.

Get it? Let me know if this was helpful, if it made sense to you.

Thanks for the question. I'll incorporate it into my blog.

This was Ed's response:
EdEntrepreneur@SofiaMiller That is very good advice. It is simple and uses plain Common Sense! My kind of diet...

I assume he is selling something. So what. If curious check the link and use YOUR common sense.

Ask questions, find your own answers. You can be your own authority. The answers to the questions that you ask, that really matter to you, will be most important to you so don't rely on anyone else. You've got more at stake than they do.

Paulien_HRT @SofiaMiller: Anyone else having reservations about the efficacy of FollowFriday? <-- Not if you share WHY you are suggesting someone !!

Personally, I am going to suggest following individuals, individually whenever so moved, whatever day of the week. I will continue to use the FollowFriday App to update my "People to Follow on Twitter" list linked in my bio

Of course if anyone includes me in their FollowFriday list, line up, parade, chorus line, whatever I'll send collective thank you's on Saturday morning.

All togehter this could take me 10 to 15 minutes/week. Perfect. :)

4 Ways to Make Money on Twitter

Link to a website that sells stuff or links to stuff for sale
For example I could link to my blog that has something for sale in the upper right hand corner.

Link to a salespage
For example I could write about what search engine optimization is and then with a text link take the reader to the sales page of Aaron Wall's SEO Handbook, an industry standard.

Tweet affiliate links
As a member of several affiliate advertising brokers, I could just select a product, make a tiny URL and tweet it along with an interesting title or "hook" line. Here are some places you can get affiliate links, once you become an affiliate. Generally you are paid via PayPal once you have earned a certain level of commission. Amazon Clickbank

Tweet from twtad, now called revad
I started doing this once a day about mid-month. It is painless and because I tweet so much I don't believe I appear to be a spam factory~spitting out ads like hotcakes.

Do you tweet ads? Why? Why not?
