I am taking off for the next week. I am staying in a place that has wireless but I think I will be leaving the laptop at home so I can just spend some time unwinding. It will be a good chance to start thinking about my monthly and quarterly goals for the year.

I have been toying with the idea of some how putting together a blog network, not unlike b5media.com or 9rules.com. I have a whole bunch of different blogs and ideas for a few new ones. The obvious step would be to some how put them all under a single umbrella to try and create some […]

I found this interesting article on how one could possible retire in your 30s via. Even just the thought of being able to retire in your 30s would have been unheard of until recently. For people who plan their finances and have some success with them, it is entirely possible. I don’t think anyone who […]

While travelling on Tokyo’s circular loop train, the ‘Yamanote Line’ I saw an advertisement which featured a .mobi URL. It was interesting because I didn’t think that Japanese companies would use the .mobi extension. The site was norikae.mobi which means to change trains in Japanese.

I have just one more day here in Japan. It has been an extremely busy couple of of weeks. I can’t wait to get my place cleaned up, of course though it is going to be very sad leaving. I have done very little on my sites. It is very difficult working on the floor!

I have mentioned in the past that I was having problems getting my blog completely indexed by Google. One problem I had was that the meta data was the same for every page. I then installed a plugin which automatically creates your meta data for every page you have. This seemed to help and all […]
