A blog lesson learned

Well a couple of days ago I started looking for ways to get my book out to the public via Fiverr.com well I paid money from my promotional budget for the book and it came back that over 11.6k worth of people looked at my book via the feed back from the analytics I got back from google. I started to research the true validity of Fiverr. I found that there is a HUGE loop hole that is that is called Hitleap.com combined with a plugin with your browser. You can spoof hits via Onion network from all over the world. The buyer (me) is never aware of what is really happening until you do the research.

How did I find this out? Well there was a HUGE red flag raised when I received my report..

If you look at the sources that clicked to see my book came from demographics that would not read it in the first place due to the subject material. Russia and Indonesia are not part of my sites analytics in fact I have never had a reader from these locations. That says a lot then I started looking at way to make money on my blog by listing LGBT books as a gig on Fiverr.com. During this research I found a link to Hitleap in a conversation on Quora.com where I answer questions about being Transgender.

What hitleap does is a link exchange to help bloggers get there site out in front of others by doing a click for a click style advertising. Meaning if you click someone’s link to there sight they will allow someone to click yours. At the core this is a great idea but fails due to legal hacking of a system. This is done by creating an app or a plugin that follows a link given to it. Thus fooling a system into thinking you are doing something you are not. Then you can log onto the Onion network and run the app while on there spoofing your IP address making it look like you are somewhere you are not.

So overall I have learned my lesson on Fiverr.com if they are offering to give your link to others Don’t waste your marketing budget on it. Now I am not saying all Fiverr services are going to have this happen to it, but I am saying BE CAREFUL buyer beware……

(oops now I have had a reader from Russia! welcome!)

Something magical happened

Try reading this blog post with the Brady bunch theme.

There is a story that can’t be told and it happened a long long time ago,

When this woman needed some help, and she had no where to go.

Then the three ladies heard her plight, and then assisted, more than they know!

That’s the end of a real quick story, sorry I can’t offer more….
Okay now the silly part is done….

Stop singing, please, please, Please……..

That was not the end of the story! On the 17/1/17 a debt of gratitude was paid. I knew where these wonderful women worked. I’m so proud of the work that these the women did that every day i have no excuse but a debt to work harder!

So today after a year or more I surprised them with a book and I paid respect. Sadly only one was at work today. But you know what that one person might have never had a success story like mine. It felt like it was all she could do not to cry when faced with her success. We talked for what seemed like a lifetime. A hug was exchanged and two hearts joined in a wonderful moment of souls understanding love for one another.

When it comes down to it I am paying debts that cannot be paid in money. I am paying a debt of the soul. To say it was an easy thing to do is not truthful. I know that the sale of my book is very important to the future of my little children and my life. So there was the internal struggle of “why?”. Then to face the question at the core of every human life, greed. Though something unexpected started to fight back deep in my heart, the debt must be repaid! Louder than than the train in the middle of the night. It spoke of the truth of the soul and heart.

Flashback to the day i met these wonderful women. I walked in broken down and grieving beyond measure. Today I walked out with my head heald higher than ever before. The simple fact is I am I. Never again will I forget the love that was shown.
Thank you…..

Project Billy update

1000 words and the structure is starting to take form. I like writing my books like this. It allows my readers to build interest and possibly look forward to the future book release as there will come a time when the book is no longer part of the Blog.

I would also like to take the time to thank all the readers!
