Advice is like crap, everyone has some and wants to get rid of it.  Why should I be your toilet?

I am inundated every day with globs of crap on how to do this better, how to live better, how to write better, how to get people to buy your crap, how to take a crap, and how to make the crap more lucrative with marketing techniques that are stale and, well, crap.  Admit it, you didn’t know this would be a scatological post when you started.  Well it really isn’t.

What it is is a study of where we are in America.  It seems we can’t look at things and figure out how to make our own way any more.  Sure there are some things out there that I would be lost without learning, such as how to get a blog going, or keep it going.  But do I really need to have 47 emails a day about it?

Do I really need pharmaceuticals from Canada or Mexico that cure everything from baldness to impotence?

Do I really need the latest $47 plug in that will grow my business overnight?  How about the one that will turn $100 into $300 in only 6 clicks of the mouse?  more like $100 into $0 in 6 clicks.

There is so much to get rid of every day.  Crap and email that is.  And unsubscribing takes forever.

So here I am, trying to figure out where crap ends and value begins.  We have been trying to come up with some great ideas to sell or even give away an ebook of cantankerousness.  It hasn’t panned out and I am beginning to suspect that people think it is just crap.  Where is value?  Where people think it is.  And it doesn’t seem that there is much value in Cantankerous Crap.

And for now, if you have any suggestions on how we can give you something that is not crap (I am tempted to say keep them in a small tube and shove ’em) let us know.  Let’s have some interaction people, I am suspecting most of our traffic lately is just Big Brother Google robots.

  1. Justin,
    I share your frustration. Who wouldn’t want to learn how to be more cantankerous?
