Facebook trademark – potential infringement?

Hey,

I’m busy creating the world’s longest blog post on my holiday to Rome (look, I know you’re interested really!).  But in the meantime, I thought I’d share this email that I got yesterday as it may affect you.

Email start:

To Whom It May Concern,

The Return of the PMW!

Hey everyone!

You may have been wondering where I’ve been for the past couple of weeks (though that being said, given my somewhat sporadic appearance here that’s totally understandable).

Well, I decided I needed to do something to get my focus back into internet marketing and my online adventure, so I decided to invest in John Thornhill’s One Month Mentor programme.  It’s shut now but I imagine after the success of this one, he’ll open it up again soon.

Things for which I am grateful…

Ok, so I know I promised you a more normal post this time (well, whatever ‘normal’ is where I’m concerned), but instead this is a bit of a personal one.

I’m currently sitting in bed sweating out some sort of virus – it started as a cold and then progressed to being hot & feverish, which has meant that my bed has turned into a swamp.  Beyond disgusting, I know, but I need you to feel my pain.  Well, actually I don’t, but I’m so fed up with being ill that I’m now starting to make a performance about it (and am annoying myself in the process).

The Purple Minxy Witch – unveiled before your very eyes!

Hello!

Wow, what a long time since I last wrote a blog post here!  Almost scandalous in fact.

Anyway, I’ve had a couple of blog posts in mind to share with you, so don’t be surprised if this suddenly becomes like the bus analogy here (you know, the “you wait for ages for a bus & then 3 come along at once” one).  Of course, I don’t wait for buses, I either drive or fly on my broomstick.

That rather neatly brings me on to the point of this post.

I have now been immortalised in cartoon form!

How much is too much?

It’s a question I probably should ask in many different areas of my life.

However, in this instance, I want to talk about communication, and specifically that of the emailing-your-list variety.

If you have a list, how often do you email them? Is it just me that gets fed up with emails every day from the same people trying to sell things to me? Even if, in some cases, it’s a freebie that they’re offering – is it *really* relevant to me and my life? Or am I just being sent things as an attempt at building the list, or adswapping, or selling me some sort of affiliate product?

I’m Starting With The (Wo)Man In The Mirror

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Lair of Temptation.

Are you sitting comfortably?  You might want to go and get a cup of tea & settle down to read this.

I’d like to do a quick shout out first to all the people on Alex Jeffreys MWA 2.0 course (and of course my friends from the MWA 1.0 course).  I’d also like to say hello and welcome to those that are on the Internet Selling For Newbies course with Omar Martin and Mike Filsaime.

Viva Las Vegas

Pheww….

I’m back in the UK, sitting on my sofa with a cup of tea & some toast with peanut butter (yes, I know, I’m so English!).

I slept for about 18 hours straight when I got back home, but then I was up for about 34 hours prior to that – so I guess it figures really. It’s strange, I woke up in Las Vegas but went to sleep back in the UK. It’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it really.

I Don’t Know What’s Worth Fighting For, Or Why I Have To Scream…

I don’t know why I instigate
And say what I don’t mean
I don’t know how I got this way
I know its not alright
So I’m
Breaking the habit
Tonight

(lyrics from Linkin Park – Breaking The Habit)

As I’m writing this it’s Sunday night, I’m on the sofa, and reflecting on my weekend.  I’m also watching Transformers (the film) – so I’m multitasking as always.

I Am The One & Only – Nobody I’d Rather Be!

Oh dear.  I think I will regret this!

25 weird, wonderful things about the Purple Minxy Temptress.

What, they have to be suitable for public consumption?  Oh.  Then it’ll be about 2 things that I can share with you.

The Gaz-Man started this for me in fact on his blog, so I might use those as starting points.

“Oh, yeah! I hope Nix does this. It’ll be a scream.

Here’s a few:

Hates oysters…

Hates seafood…

Loves purple…

Detests spelling mistakes…”

I’m also reading Linda’s, Renee’s, and Hilary’s answers for inspiration – so somewhere between that are my 25 things:

I’m Like The Ringleader; I Call The Shots

I have been guilty of procrastination since the New Year.  Yes, I work full time, and therefore don’t necessarily have as much time as others to dedicate to this at present.  But is that really true?  Or am I just a poor judge of efficient time management?

Gary’s 20 traits of Winners vs Losers post highlighted that to me – go and have a look and rate yourself honestly against the 20 points there.  It might just give you the wake up call you need.
