My name is Mike and I've been on the fringe of everything here, but it is high time I made the commitment and got started. My wife home schools and we leave in Orange Beach, AL which means that the corporate job is non-existent here. Which means to support my family I sell termite & pest control, deliver newspapers, clean houses & condos and cut a couple of yards. BTW I get up at 2:15am 7 days a week while going to be at 9:00pm.
All that to say, I've got to find ways to do what I really want to do which is to write. I'm just starting the platform process and wanted some advice on something.
My pest/termite control job is commission only and I'm given the freedom to come up with Marketing ideas instead of knocking doors. I was thinking of trying out the Hubpages thing and promoting myself as the "Bug Guy" to blog about the need for termite protection, pest control, what to look for to see if you have evidence of termites in your home, are bed bugs something to worry about, etc.
I could work on this while at work promoting my company some while getting my blogging feet wet.
I plan to also start my own blog about self development, spiritual growth, finding your passion, etc. In other words, the same thing everybody else here writes about.
Anybody have some feedback?
