Support-A-Thon: Submit Your #FreeBacklinks and Support Other Geeks #supportathon

Hello fellow geeks let’s TEAM UP! Teamwork - Let's Succeed Together #supportathon

The Support-A-Thon continues.. Teamwork, teamwork!

UPDATE:  I’ll be re-sending this page via Buffer, StumbleUpon, and Triberr.  Come join us and feature your best content (try to keep it to one #backlink at a time so we can stay focused).  Just leave a comment with a detailed review and a link, then we’ll help you promote your stuff.  Remember to use hash tag #supportathon when tweeting or blogging about this wonderful collaborative effort!

Today, I want to step up the Support-A-Thon effort by inviting you all to share your shameless plugs right here on Y3B!

That’s right – submit your links here for FREE using the comments!

What’s the catch?

All we ask in return is that you hand-pick some of the links in this post to share with your friends and via your social networks.  This part is important because broadcasting shares and messages usually doesn’t work.  That includes sharing on your Facebook wall, Google stream, Twitter timeline, etc.

The purpose of this here Support-A-Thon is to engage your closest friends and supporters – those are your real influencers!

Please read on for some tips to make this work and more details about my own guest article promotion in our Support-A-Thon

The Thirty-Second Window And How Snappy, Interesting Content WINS!

I just read an article by Max Miroff about Triond and it really put things into perspective because it was short and sweet. It reminded me that I should be more concise at times myself. What I also learned is that Triond.com offers significant residual or passive income to writers at any level. There are a ton of publishing and article submission sites but this particular one seems worth exploring.

Triond.com is unique but how?

Triond.com is unique but how?

After my most recent brainstorming session with JulioFromNY of the Mundane Chatter Podcast, I’ve been reminded that, these days, being interesting alone is not enough. Concise content will often trump more detailed content, regardless of how unique or well produced or written it is. If the subject matter is hot or trending, it’ll get attention. This is where Triond comes into play.

I see Triond as a place for writers to provide snappy teasers and mini-documents based on their existing content library. In doing so, you build up your brand and presence, while earning a little gas or play money on the side, at least for starters. Some say it’s possible to earn massive residual income on Triond (say, around $3200 a month) but, to do so, you have to research subjects and employ thorough SEO/SMO (which I try to do with all my published content, regardless of the medium or platform). I say temper your expectations – there are NO get rich quick solutions (just scams pretending to be shortcuts) out there! Continue reading

Y3B’s 50th Post And My Plans As A Writer, Gamer, And Entrepreneur

Hey guys and gals: this is my 50th post on Y3B – WOOHOO!

Now it may not seem like much to the more prominent bloggers, writers, social media rockstars, and master promoters out there but I’m pretty darn excited! I started Y3B as a sort of hobby but, when I realized just how much I love blogging as an extension of my passions in writing, marketing, video games, and creative pursuits thereof, I saw the urgency in ramping up my efforts. Here I am, world!

Prepare for one of my usual long-winded ramblings but, please, let me know if you can relate!

Finding The Perfect Balance In Blogging: Making A Living While Remaining Authentic

One thing I’ve tried to do, almost to a fault, is provide very detailed articles with little or no “content borrowing”. This is a raw, sometimes chaotic, all-original blog and, if I may say so, it’s more than most of the junk out there. Sadly, I don’t have the numbers to show for it but that is my fault. The problem I’ve also discovered is that, in covering all the bases, I leave little left to discuss. Considering the aforementioned, a big focus for me and all “creative engineers” is engaging our audience in ongoing conversations (in other words, retaining our visitors).

Blogging, like many creative ventures (i.e. video game and web design), is a delicate balancing act. We are charged with the responsibility of managing expectations and delivering on our promises. Our readers come to us because they found something they like and to NOT continue building upon that is a wasted effort, whether you’re trying to monetize or just do it for the love and passion of the experience. To that end I say, “Why can’t you do both?” Continue reading
