What does the Future Hold for Thatedeguy?

Part of my purpose with all the fuss this month was to try and see what this site can really do. I don’t normally post more than once or twice a week, and yet, here I am posting every day so far. Will I be able to finish out the month? I’m gonna try.

This site started as a personal blog where I talked about personal things with a pretty heavy mix of tech related stuff on the side. It matured into a Tech blog with some personal stuff on the side. As I expanded into other sites and started making more money with them all, this site became more focused on making money online. And here I am in the make money online realm.

But I think that I’ve been taking things a little too seriously around here. I’ve been hesitating to write anything that isn’t directly related to the make money online niche and as a result, I think the site is worse off. So what now?

Well, I think it’s time to let my roots show a little. I’m still going to post about the efforts that I am making towards making the most money online, but I’m gonna mix some of the personal and tech stuff back in. That’s where I started, and that is really where my heart is with this site. I don’t forsee ever selling this domain/site, therefore it needs to be something that I want to keep regardless of whether I continue on as a publicly exposed make money online entrepreneur.

I don’t plan on making many big changes so I hope I haven’t scared you off. I truly hope that what changes I do make will be for the better. I also hope that you’ll continue to come around even if this site isn’t completely dedicated to making money online. I think it’ll be worth the read. But, then again, I’m biased. 😉

  1. You folks with multiple websites baffle me. I post a lot on my blog, but if I tried to run more than one blog at a time I think I’d go nuts.

    Maybe it’s just a personal thing with me, but I have a hard time focusing on more than one blog.

  2. There we go 😀

    Getting posts out every day is a great way to jolt your traffic. There was a 30-day challenge (I forget where) that encouraged readers to post every day for 30 days to see what would happen.

    I am about half-done this challenge myself, and have definitely seen a nice bump in my readership already.

  3. If you keep a clear category on your money making posts then offer up a feed directly for that category (should simply be /category/cat-name/feed/) for those who don’t want to see the human side of you 😉

    However a few personal posts or non money making posts are always nice to to read too 🙂

  4. Thatedeguy says

    @ Rob – Well, I’ve only got this and two others (blogs) at the moment. The other two get pretty neglected most of the time. The rest of my sites are a lot less of a daily need, so they are easier to maintain.

    @Jim – So far, I haven’t seen too much in the way of increased traffic, but have seen an increase in commenting which is just as good.

    @SarahG – no need for that just yet. I don’t forsee it getting more than a post or two here and there. At least not yet. One day, It might be more.

  5. Dude, just don’t do paid post here, I will lovin it if you can post more about how to make money online in no time. Put more value content that will resourceful for newbie like us. Every bit you do here, so have people appreciate it, just the matter to let you know or not. Cheer!
