Blog and Passive Income Update [November ’10]

I’m really sad to see November come to an end, but hopefully December and the following months will be even better.  I had a lot going on in November – I relaunched my blog, started a new passive income challenge,  and developed a simple tool to help myself and others keep track of a very powerful backlinking strategy (thanks to everyone for all of your overwhelmingly positive feedback so far!).

Anyway, it’s time to get down to business and see how November’s passive income turned out.  As I mentioned in a prior post, this was my best month yet!

The Official Relaunch of My 4-Hour Workweek

It’s finally here, and I’m super excited!  As I mentioned in my post last week, I am “relaunching” this site to hopefully bring bigger and better things to the internet, specifically to those who read this blog.  For most blogs, businesses, etc., the concept of a launch or relaunch revolves around a single event – for My4HWW, the relaunch will be an evolutionary process – one that will happen over the coming weeks and months.  What you see right now (the new theme) is only a very small part of what I have planned.

The devil is in the details, so allow me to further explain this relaunch…

Coming Soon to an Internet Browser Near You…

It’s my favorite time year.  Once you can look past the terrible Chicago weather, there’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and lots of time with friends and family.  I can’t really think of a better time to make some pretty drastic changes around this blog, so I wanted to write a quick post about what you can expect from me over the next few weeks.

There are some significant things coming soon, and you won’t want to miss them.

An Awesomely Simple and Free To-Do List App (Review of TeuxDeux)

There are a lot of tools out there, both online and offline, that aim to keep you organized and/or productive.  Some of them are poorly designed and ineffective, while others are fancy and jam-packed with features.

Is it possible for an incredibly simple tool to be more powerful and effective than a complex one with lots of features?  I think I found such a tool, and it has done wonders for my productivity.

The Ultimate Backlink Tracker (Free Tool)

Last week, Pat Flynn (from Smart Passive Income) posted, in complete detail, the backlink strategy that pushed his niche site to a #1 ranking on Google.  This epic post was very well received, as it immediately spread around the blogosphere and ignited a massive conversation (currently the post has more than 190 comments).  It’s not any kind of “magic bullet” backlink solution – it’s a somewhat complex, highly effective strategy that can profoundly improve your site’s search engine ranking if implemented correctly.

Although the strategy makes sense when you read it, I figured that it’s probably difficult for many people to grasp the entire process as it pertains to their specific websites – in particular, I think a lot of people might struggle with finding a good way to track the process and backlinks that they create.  I think I’ve designed a effective solution for this.

How I’m Going to Add $20k/Year to My Passive Income Portfolio (Niche Profit Course Review)

As the niche site duel continues, I’ve gotten to the point where, aside from adding periodic content and backlinks, the site has become a passive project for me.  I’ll still share my earnings in my monthly income reports and maybe another post here or there about new strategies I’m using, but the vast majority of my niche site’s configuration has already been publicized here for you to read.

I’m a huge fan of personal challenges, and I think it’s about time to layer another one on top of my already existing projects.  You can criticize me for juggling too many projects at once, but I’ve learned that this is how I keep it interesting and enjoyable for myself.  If I can still produce positive results, I’m not going to complain about it.

I really believe that this new challenge is going to do wonders for my passive income portfolio, as I continue to diversify it.  Let’s jump into the details.
