Back to serious issues, why in so many posts here do I see references to this coder jazz?
Coding is totally worthless, zero, hopeless nothing.
The most brilliant, stunning, worthwhile lectures I ever saw on the net were plain .txt files posted by a most esteemed, scientific friend.
He simply posted around 40+ years of utterly brilliant lectures which at some point in time had been converted brilliantly by his Phd students to disk as .txt files in the 1980's.
Technologically, he blew all of us away. He flatly refused my efforts in 1999 to make his erudite files more friendly and available in a genuine SEO [white hat] sense.
At some point around those days, he had something like 100,000+ incoming links.
That may well have been a record for its time.
Taught me coding, even basic CSS was largely BS. Can people see your contribution to humanity in most browsers? That is the most important issue.
Even IE6, which many choose to hate?
Gee, I'm old and stupid enough to believe the visitor is "KING".
Agree or disagree? I don't care.
Mr.AdSense puts money in my bank account every month, not the big four figures from yonks ago, just small four figures. Add Amazon, Kontera cuppla other programmes and what do you have?
An idiot I might be BUT I have never misled people here or on any other forum.
I've had the money in the bank and I must know something. Only Brett Tabke the owner of this list has produced a better resume than I have. O.K. thousands differ.
Tickle me and I'll produce the definitive Brett link. Others no doubt will do it beforehand.
Forget monetisation, forget coding build "real pages with content people actually search for"
Call me stupid, call me a fool but the majority of you will never earn as much as I have in the last twelve years.
Who is stupid?
Every person, I personally known over these years, who are successful, substantially followed my approach.
a) a five minute wonder
b) a person who has consistently for nearly seven years earned a five figure income each year.
What choice would you make?
