Now it’s time to reveal exactly what I was talking about in the first episode.
I figured I would bring this to your attention as it is a great learning moment for anyone out there struggling with this make money online thing.
There are so many bloggers out there yelling so many tips that it’s very difficult to know what to do.

People are hilarious.
They always try to find shortcuts to doing the work that’s needed so they can appear successful quickly. They want to pose like the big man knowing all the while they haven’t done half of what it takes to earn this reputation. Don’t make this mistake and make a fool out of yourself.
The #1 thing Your Online Business should NEVER do:
STEAL CONTENT from other people like
Aaron “The Idiot” Elliott.
You should never ever publish someone else’s work and then go around sharing it on the internet like its yours. This is what Aaron “The Idiot” Elliott did with a guest post that I sent him earlier this week.
This is where my guest post nightmare started.
This idiot offered to publish a guest post so I sent him an article thinking that he would stick to his word.
Nope, he just instantly ran off with my article and put his name on it. Then he started sharing it on social media like he was the author.
This old trick has been in use for ages.
A man wants to make it to the BIG TIME so what does he do? He tries to STEAL his way to the top. He’ll take someone’s else’s work, then say it’s his and in no time he’ll be famous right?
That won’t get you a reputation as a superstar but as a SUPER IDIOT. Instead of being known as a popular up and coming blogger you’ll be known as a CLOWN, a FRAUDSTER, a SCAM ARTIST, a SCHMUCK.
This was the decision Aaron “The Idiot” Elliott made when he stole my work and thought that somehow he would get away with it.
Look at this clown:
Aaron “The Idiot” Elliott got famous for trying to steal an article that Darnell Jackson wrote.
He steals other peoples articles and puts his name on them like he’s a good writer and not a clown.
Here’s the resource box that he used when he posted my article to another website crediting himself as the AUTHOR, freaking poser:
Then this is how he published my article on HIS own website.
Notice how much work he is doing promoting another man’s work. He really want’s people to think that he wrote my article.
When I say this guy is an IDIOT here is what I mean. Even as I write this article exposing this clown he has added me on Google plus. The idiot hasn’t realized I added him to a circle called CROOKS. My only point for writing this article is to warn other people about the clowns out there who want to take from others for their own gain. Look at this clown:
KIDS AT HOME LISTEN UP: Don’t be like Aaron “The Idiot” Elliot write your own stuff do your own work.
The simple truth is there’s risk in just about anything you do so be careful.
People are motivated to take what they can from others so they can get as much credit as they can for themselves.
Before you submit an article to any blog as a guest post be sure you remember there are people out there like Aaron “The Idiot” Elliot.
Here’s a quick checklist to review before you send off your article:
- Are they crediting other Guest Posters Properly. Here is a good example of how a good guest post should be credited.
- How many guest posts have they published recently? If you don’t see very many recent guest posts this could be a warning sign.
- Responsiveness. When you attempt to contact them do they reply in a timely fashion? If there is an issue you may need to contact them and if they are not available this could cause a problem.
