We’re coming out with a brand new podcast episode next weekend called, “How to Make Your First 1000 Dollars Online”… and I want to share it with you but I need something from you first…
We are also coming up on the 5th anniversary of this site. I remember starting it thinking two things:
- I had already missed the “blogging gold rush” of 2005 (yeah right)
- If I post what I have to say on someone else’s message board, won’t that get more traffic, comments, and make me more money?
- I’m going to limit the number of comments on each post to 10 comments only (which was a lot of fun)
I think it’s far better to own YourName.com and have a blog that you not only have FULL CONTROL over but is also PERMANENT… who’s going to go digging around on your Facebook timeline to find what you posted a year ago, or who’s going to scroll back to page 197 of that message board to find what you said last month?
It’s my site, so I can do whatever I want, but I want to know what you think about closing comments on this blog?
Every time I make a post I stress about how I’m going to get 20, 50, 100 people to leave a comment — and today I suddenly thought, maybe I should leave it closed and not worry about it?
Should I permanently disable the ability for you or anyone else to leave comments here? Yes or no? I want to know your thoughts and opinions in a comment below… it may be the last time!
(No, I won’t switch over to a Disqus or Facebook comment system. And no, this isn’t a marketing ploy of any kind, I’m seriously considering it.)
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts below…
