JakeCpuNut vs ShoeMoney

11 March 2009 9 Comments

Last night was my first webinar... One of the most well known bloggers in the world, Jeremy Schoemaker, held a very nice discussion / question and answer session moderated by Jason Henderson of Big Marketing Blog. It was very cool and the advice given by ShoeMoney was great! There was one particular thing that stuck out at me though...

Jake and ShoeMoney are like 2 peas in a pod!

Ha, now before you get the idea that me and ShoeMoney hang out on the weekends... NOT! ShoeMoney is expected to top $750,000.00 this year... just a bit out of my league! But just to brag on myself a little, I've already turned more profit this year than I did for all of 2008! One thing I would like to touch on about the JakeCpuNut vs Shoemoney comparison though is this...

How many of us work for the "other man"? How many of us have to drag out of bed only to go work for someone else instead of ourselves.. I do! Maybe someday I can work for me! But what I'm getting at is this... when one of our VP's or even the owner of the company comes around.. people tend to "tighten up", meaning they think that person is way above them. Some people feel like you can't even talk to a person of power, thinking maybe they don't have anything to offer. I've always had the mindset that hey, they get out of bed just like I do, and what's the old saying... they put their pants on one leg at a time.. JUST LIKE ME!

Of course they are in a different league when it comes to income, connections and that sort of thing.. but when it comes right down to it.. we're no different than the big boys!

What do I mean?

Last night, ShoeMoney made it very loud and clear how he runs his blog.... During the webinar, he stressed on how he just wanted to be himself and THAT is what made his blog so successful! No trying to be someone else, no trying to be the first to have breaking news that no one else has, no trying to push the same products that show up on all the Internet Marketing blogs... He's just himself and his blog posts reflect HIS PERSONALITY! Hmmmmm, now does that sound familiar? It does to me!

I've done a couple of posts on that very subject.. back in Janurary I had a post called "What Is The Purpose Of Your Blog" and in February I had a similar post called "Is Your Website or Blog Wearing An Eyepatch?" If you'll go back and read those posts, you'll see I was talking about this very thing, just being me here at JakeCpuNut! So to hear someone like ShoeMoney stress that on the webinar last night, made me feel really good!

I know it's hit home with others as well, Mark Hansen over at The Niche Store Builder did a post today along the same lines... it seems as though the message that came across to several who watched the webinar was kind of a "letting your hair down" experience! I'm excited to see more personality on the different blogs I visit and I hope you see Jake's personality here at my blog!

So even though ShoeMoney is in the big leagues as far as money, subscribers etc etc... He's just plain ole ShoeMoney when it comes to his blog! No different than Jake here at JakeCpuNut!

So did you attend the webinar last night?

If so, what did you gain from it?

Does your site have "personality"?

    Most bloggers would say that Shoe is very arrogant, maybe he is, or maybe they all are jealous.

    @ MMO – Yup… I agree with you.. I think Shoe is just being himself.. like him or not..
