my noob problem:
I am pretty agile in learning and try to avoid the rumored "shiny object obsession", but the stance of a seasonesd warrior (whom i can't pm as of now) has made me think again though. He shared that he occasionally reads 2-3 newsletter/blogs to keep up with what is going on and takes heed to what friends in the industry share with him. THAT'S ALL.
Well i do not have any friends in the industry yet and it seems to be not easy at all for me to find the right balance between curious learning and procrastinating the implementation of what is at hand!
I mean if i would not be open minded at all, i would not have found this awesome forum and a lot of ideas and opportunities on the net for a start.
Am currently in the phase to consolidate my info sources. I have discovered about 50 good and seemingly respected blogs/forums etc. since the beginning 2011 and i wonder how to keep up with it. There is so much to take in!
Could you share which blogs/sites/sources you value over all other?! How do you manage and balance all the information? All these different areas?
Do you deem it best for a beginner to first concentrate on one single field, e.g. affiliate marketing or copywriting etc.? Or is it worth a try to learn and mix two or even three areas of expertise for greater impact?
Which would be your advice on what to tackle first, what to postpone...
I know this boils very much down to your character and inclination - most importantly to your strategy. So let me ask you personally - how did you achieve mastery over this.
Some serious, thoughtful help would be so much appreciated indeed!
Best wishes to all warriors, Valli
