I don't really like writing short updates, but there are too many little things going on to write separate posts.
First, I've designed some cool t-shirts, hats, and other items to facilitate displaying of BtyB pride. Even if you don't have BtyB pride yet, the designs are cool enough that you'll want to wear them anyway. To check it out, visit the Better Than Your Boyfriend Store .
Want to support the site, but would rather get paid for doing so? I used to be professional gambler, earning the bulk of my income from online casinos for six years. I will soon write a whole story about that. The casino I got started at is called Casino-on-Net. I have a deal with them where anyone signing up with them through my site will get $200 for free!
I've played at hundreds of casinos online and on land, and many of them are rigged, shady, or will just run with your money. The most honest and fair casino I've ever played at is Casino-on-Net. I have never had a bad experience with them, and neither have any of the dozens of gambling friends I have. Anyone who signs up through my web site to get $200 for free (and yes, you will really get it) will also be supporting Better than your Boyfriend, as Casino-on-Net pays me a commission.
One last way you can help me help you is by checking out my diet book that I wrote (under a pen name). It's called The Skinny Snob and I'm really proud of it. I spent a ton of time learning about diet and nutrition, and this is the sum of my knowledge, laid out in a very easy to follow plan. If you follow it and have bought a T-shirt, when you need a smaller size, it's on me!
If you want to keep love and money separate, that's cool too. A link to my site from your blog, forum, or web site is very valuable to me. Thanks a lot to everyone who has already linked to me and helped this site grow!
As you may have noticed from the ever growing comment section, I have received tons of publicity recently. This means more people visiting BtyB, which is fantastic. The bigger we get, the easier it is for me to afford to spend time writing up even more great stories. Also, soon we will be big enough that companies will sponsor contests. I plan on spending a lot of time getting cool prizes for monthly giveaways for you guys.
I also have some exciting news about Polyphasic sleep, but I want to wait a few more days to make sure it's solid before I share it with you guys.
Here's a rough plan of what to expect from Better than your Boyfriend in the near future :
- The conclusion of the popular How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist series.
- An in depth story about the six months I lived with famous rock star Courtney Love
- A 45 (ok, maybe more) day review on my progress with 2006 Goals
- The next part in the The Great American School Bus Conversion story
- More rap songs!
- My own holiday starting this year that will CHANGE THE WORLD!
- The best way to make your computer super cool looking
- How to always be happy (really!)
- Who knows what else I'll get into and write about...
Anyways... stay tuned. I'm having a great time writing these articles, and I have a ton more that I'm dying to write about. I take a lot of time writing them, so please be patient. Thanks again for being part of this site!
Here's what's going on with Life Nomadic. The site still isn't ready, but it's getting close. I also said that it was close a month ago, so take that with a grain of salt.
The primary delay is that the site is being coded by hand from scratch. It's not built on wordpress, drupal, or anything else like that. Todd is custom coding it from the ground up. This means that it takes a lot longer to get ready, but will also be way more advanced than any other site like it.
The second delay is that we basically did zero work for two weeks while we went everywhere in Panama. Can't say I regret that at all.
I named this blog Alan's Journey, because it's essentially about my journey through life. The joys I experience, the challenges I face, and the sadnesses I have to deal with (hopefully not too many!).
One of the things I need to do - and I will - is update the Timeline (link above) with various events I've experienced throughout my life. These 'timeline events' will frame future stories I'll be writing, as I recollect the experiences of those events throughout my life. Once the story is written, the timeline event will be linked to it, so that the timeline will be a kind of 'contents' list of my life.
One of the thoughts I've had for many years is that I'll write a book about the story of my life. Maybe I don't need to do a book, just this blog will do. Or maybe this blog will lead to a book.
Who knows? I don't. All I know is that I love writing. I've been doing it for a long time. I've been blogging since 1998. I've been keeping a diary since 1986, that I wrote in regularly. At least until I started blogging on the internet, that is.
Would you believe I almost threw out my diaries a couple months ago? I felt that they weren't important to who I am today. Yes, the experiences of my life have led me to where I am today, but what's important is who I am today, what I do, and how I feel.
