First of all if your website have some reasonable traffic then I may be interested in buying it :D (just in case you may contact me).

If you think there is no any difference in @reply and @mention when used in your twitter status message you are so wrong! I have lost quite a lot of my messages exposure because of this mistake. I do not have thousands of followers but I am running twitter web 2.0 app that pushes a lot of status updates for other users.

And probably most of you don’t know how it works exactly.

Here it is! My report number 0 – part 2! My first part of report (it was posted here) got too long so I decided to split it into two parts.

Gave up a day job! Now what? – Report number 0

I have promised my readers in my last post (I gave up a day job to make a living from online income!) a report number 0 about my situation after giving up my day job. My previous post got a lot of attention and comments from you. Most of them were very motivating and helpful. You have given me a lot of valuable tips about running my own one person company. Big Thanks to all of you! As I have told you in my last post here is my report number ZERO (at least part 1). It is being written before official launch of my online business. So I won’t write anything about any income (yeah… I know most of you are disappointed but I have warned about it in my previous post). Fortunately it won’t be just a few boring thoughts of mine as it will lead to some numbers (in part 2) and some interesting facts.  So here it is, my report number 0.
