Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

To all my friends, family and business associates:

In 39 days, I will walk 39 miles in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer – Chicago. I will be walking with many women and men who want to do their part to help the fight against breast cancer, including the rest of my teammates on Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back.http://www.iwalkforboobies.com

As part of my commitment, I have agreed to raise $1,800, but being that I'm never happy doing anything at just the minimum, I've agreed to raise $20,000 personally and have set my team goal at $50,000.

I'm doing great, but could still use your help.  As of today, I've raised $10,106.00 and am more than half way to my goal.

Now – more than ever – I need you to support this important cause. Did you know that the Avon Foundation has helped more than one million women in the United States receive a mammogram? More than two-thirds of these women were uninsured, and more than half were from minority populations.

Please do your part by supporting me and helping me meet and exceed my fundraising goal. You can make a donation by visiting http://IWalkForBoobies.com.

Thank you for all of your support in the past, currently and in the future.  Together we can stomp out this horrible disease that affects so many.

Don't say I didn't remind you 🙂

ProBlogger:  Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six Figure IncomeI was happy to see that the 2nd Edition of ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income launched today.  This is a fantastic book written by Darren Rowse of Problogger.net and Chris Garrett of ChrisG.com.

The original book was written 2008 with a goal of putting together a resource for bloggers that would walk them through the steps of creating and growing a profitable blog.

This is an update of the 1st edition and includes several significant updates including:

  • New examples, screenshots, updates of new tools, a few deletions of references to old tools, an update to the writers' stories in the intro etc.
  • Chris has added a fairly significant chapter on social media and how it impacts and can be used by bloggers
  • Darren has added a case study chapter that goes through the first 4 years of his main blog – Digital Photography School.  He sorts through how he launched it, what he focused upon in years 1-2 and then in years 3-4, how he monetizes it and shares the secrets to how he drives significant traffic and income through email newsletters, social media etc.
  • Bonuses – They're also offering anyone who buys the book a series of bonuses (some interviews with successful bloggers, some extra teaching etc)
  • If I were you, I'd grab your copy today because when the 1st edition was released, it sold out pretty quickly.

    Currently, Amazon has it on sale at 34% off and you can also pre-order your Kindle version here.
