Hey guys. Everyone once in a while I feel the need to have one of these posts two write about little things that don't really deserve their own posts.
First, my book is doing great! The most important thing is that people are really enjoying it and getting a lot out of it. The less glamorous side of it is that even though it's launched, it still requires quite a bit of work. Right now I'm writing the 10 day bootcamp (you can sign up on the front page). I've written 7 days, so only 3 to go! I'm also writing three "special reports", mini ebooks on some specific topics. With typical internet marketing, it's important to have these. I don't mind, though. I feel like there are a few things that I could have gone into more detail on, so I'm using those as topics. If you bought the book, you'll get those as free updates. Thanks a lot to everyone who has bought the book so far!
Next, I am now #1 on google! If you search for "Tynan" I am #1 and #2! One of my life goals was to make it so that I was first for my first name on google, and I've done it. The best part is that you can type in "Tynan" in google, and then click "I'm feeling lucky" and it shows my page. Obviously having a unique name like "Tynan" makes things easier, but I was still up against 1.5 million other pages. A lot of the credit is due to people who link to me and have "Tynan" be the clickable text. I can see everyone who links to me and I always go check their sites. Thank you guys very much!
Now that I'm #1 on Google for my name, I've been getting more people to the site searching for that. Many of them share my name, which is awesome.
My parents chose the name out of a name book randomly. They wanted me to have a name that had no previous associations with anyone else. It's Irish, although I'm not Irish at all.
The dark side of having a unique name is that I missed out on a whole side of consumerism. I never had a little license plate or keychain with my name on it. Those were reserved for people with more common names.
