TGIF – The first of many

November 21, 2008

I've been doing this blog for about a month and a half now. It has been about providing you with valuable information that you can use to make money with freebies. That has been my main focus. It has been an interesting learning experience trying to come up with nearly daily content.

The more I thought about it, I realized – WAIT A MINUTE, THIS IS A BLOG. A blog is not just another website. It doesn't only provide information, it is also a portal that can be used to give people insight into the mind of the blog owner.

So, I decided that on Fridays, I will do a random post that doesn't necessrily have anything to do with Freebies. That way you get to see a little bit of who I am and I get a little bit of a break from freebies, lol.

It's the end of the week and I'm exhausted. As some of you know, I'm a science and math teacher at a boarding academy. If you know ANYTHING about boarding school life, you know that it's not just a full time job. We live on the campus and have supervision duties on some evenings and weekends.

This weekend is Senior Recognition weekend, which is a HUGE thing. The kids are running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get their backdrop all set up and rehearsing for their performances. If you knew me in “real life” you would know that I'm very much into music. I'm a pianist and recording engineer. Because of this, I end up helping out a lot with the music on campus (my wife is also the choir teacher, so that gets me even more involved).

The great thing about it all is that on Monday, we go on Thanksgiving Break. WOOHOOOOO! NO work, NO grading, NO supervision and NO STUDENTS. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my students, but it's great to have a break.

I have big plans for next week. I'm going to be spending a lot of time developing a membership site for everyone that has gotten or will get my Free Mentoring Site. You've all heard the statement – “If you build it, they will come!” When it comes to Websites, that statement does NOT apply. You can have the nicest website in the world, but without traffic, it will make you zero dollars and zero cents.

Another thing that I will do that is extremely important is the following – now this is very important, so read carefully. When I go to bed at night, I will NOT set an alarm clock. Yes, I said it, I will go to bed and wake up whenever I wake up. Yes, I am going to be wild and crazy! LOL.

All in all, I'm looking forward to the break. I'll be heading out of town for a little while and meeting up with friends. Thanksgiving is a great time and I always enjoy it. We usually end up hopping from 1 Thanksgiving Lunch to another Thanksgiving lunch and another and then a Thanksgiving Dinner and then another Thanksgiving dinner and so on . . . You get the picture.

So, to all of you who are reading this, I would like to wish you a great Weekend. Have lots of fun and enjoy Thanksgiving. I will 🙂
