Dot Com Mogul Checklist for July 2007

Wow, the last couple months have been a total blur. I didn’t do a Dot Com Mogul Checklist for June because I was away in Taiwan for the COMPUTEX Computer Show. Then I headed off to Hong Kong and Macau to commune with my people. It’s experiences like these that make me realize just how lucky I am to be able to do what I do. Let’s see how all that travelling and freedom impacted my Dot Com Mogul Status for July!

1. Your income must come about as a result of the money you make from the Internet – That’s a CHECK!

2. The minimum internet income level is $10,000 a month (you cannot add income from other sources to hit this $10K level) – I made it so that’s a CHECK! That’s the second time this year that I’ve passed the $10K mark as January was the first time.

3.You have no jobs outside of the Internet – I’m still unemployed so CHECK!

4. You have a personal blog with your name as the domain nameCHECK THAT!

*UPDATE* 5. Your blog must be updated at least ONCE PER DAY – I’ve actually come to the realization that this is pretty stupid. I’m going to say something when I need to say it, but I know I have something to say at least twice a week so I’m going to alter this with two posts a week. One to start the week. One to end the week. Otherwise I’m just posting videos or making shit up. At one point, I thought about getting someone to guest blog. However, this isn’t Stephen Fung DOT NET and Friends Dot Com Mogul Checklist for July 2007

6. A Google search of your name must be at the #1 spot – This one must be a tough one because it looks like John Chow is no longer a Dot Com Mogul. His Evilness is nowhere near the top. I guess good prevails? However, I’m STILL NUMBER ONE! It also looks like WikiPedia has restored my listing. Let’s give that a CHECK!

7. You must be willing to help dot com mogul wannabes – The mail bag has been a little low this month, but nonetheless, I do what I can. CHECK!

8. Give time, money, or anything of value to a charitable cause each month – One of the things that I’ve enjoyed the most is being in a position where I can help charities. This past month, I challenged readers to enter my contest and produce a donation to charity based on the number of entries I received. The winner not only got a prize, but got the opportunity to donate my money to a charity or his or her choice. Everyone that entered gets to check this one off their list so CHECK FOR ALL OF YOU!

9. Personally help at least one person establish their online presence via a blog or website or help them enhance one they already have every month – Does helping to restore a blog help? Brice Wong got himself hacked again but he was up and running again in no time. Unfortunately, he got all his pictures deleted. Poor guy. CHECK!

For July, I really only missed one, which was the blogging every day thing. I usually make that one but altering to twice a week I think is the right thing to do. If I don’t have anything to say, I shouldn’t make something up or go get someone to do it for me. It’s my blog and it has my name, so it is my responsibility. Till next month! Dot Com Mogul Checklist for July 2007

    Wow. Good stuff. I’m shock. I’ll be back for more visits.

  • http://stepehnfungisadotcomposer.com U-R-A-Dot-Com-Poser

    Wow! Another Dot-Com-Poser check list? I DARE YOU to add to the checklist: Must have more than 50 million bucks of liquid cash in the bank.

    Don’t have the ball to post it? Oh I forgot, you don’t even have a quarter of that amount. You probably have mortgage payments too!

    Earning 10K or even 40K per month doesn’t make you a mogul. The word MOGUL is reserved for people who own BIG industries and billions of dollars. Your just a brainless idiot who brags about their favorite 5 star restaurant and media freebies they receive.

    Unless you can buy a 2007 Porsche GT without blinking an eye…you ain’t even close to being a real dot com mogul.

    Keep up the good work poser! I’m sure your little penises (followers) get more impressed everyday! (Delete or refute this post if you want because I once again made my point).

      No no. I dare you! Then I’ll say “Good For You!” and give you a pat on the back the back for accomplishing one of your goals. But instead, you’re here whining and bitching while others are out doing and surpassing you. No wonder you’re so emotionally “poor”.

      If you’d like anyone to take you seriously, please use REAL contact information. Otherwise, “Sit Around and Bitch All Day Anonymous” is down the hall…

        Mo·gul (mō’gəl, mō-gŭl’) Pronunciation Key
        n.

        1. also Mo·ghul (mŏŏ-gŭl’, mō-) or Mu·ghal (mōō-gŭl’)
        1. A member of the force that under Baber conquered India in 1526.
        2. A member of the Muslim dynasty founded by Baber that ruled India until 1857.
        2. A Mongol or Mongolian.
        3. mogul A very rich or powerful person; a magnate.

        Hmmmm…..You’re neither very rich or very powerful. The only thing you’ve proven is that you live in a little dot-com bubble with nothing to back up your claims as a mogul.

        What are you really? You’re just a piece of shit trying to teach the world how to make money. The sad part is….you know nothing about making BIG MONEY! (Making 10K a month doesn’t quality you to become a big shit)

        Unless you can show the world your 10 million dollar home and exotic car collection, your simply a no good FAGIT LIAR trying to act like a wanna-be mogul with stupid philanthropic activities.

        Like the old saying goes….If ya got no show…you got no dough….

        Keep up the bragging poorboy! You’re so dumb…You wouldn’t even know if a million dollars was shoved up you ass! hahahaha…….

          I’ve got a definition too!

          “Anonymous Coward” is a term applied within some online communities to describe users who post without a screen name; it is a dummy name attributed to anonymous posts used by some weblogs that allow posting by people without registering for accounts. The practice, which had its roots in BBS and USENET culture, was made especially popular on Slashdot, where the mildly derogatory term is meant to chide anonymous contributors into logging in.[1] [2] Some weblog engines such as Scoop use the term “Anonymous Hero” instead, perhaps to avoid the name’s confrontational nature. Others use stronger varieties, like Plastic.com’s “Anonymous Idiot”, and SuicideGirls’ “Random Fuckbag”.

          All kidding aside, I feel really sorry for you. To be that angry and upset at the world that you would try to bring down others by ragging on their accomplishments (and even charity giving! Holy crap!) must really suck. I hope someone out there loves you enough to look past your obvious character flaws and can fill that void you call a soul.

          One thing about the Internet that is both a blessing and a curse is how easily it exposes truly what kind of person someone is on the inside.

      Are you in that group that has more than $50 million in liquid cash? (doubtful)

      Don’t you have the balls to post one of your own URLs so we can see how you are doing? (apparently not)

    Since we can just go around changing the rules of the Dot Com Mogul checklist, I’m going to revise #2 to be $100 instead of $10,000. Although I still wouldn’t qualify because I have a job outside of the Interweb. Damn!

    • http://www.blog.trbn.com Thinkreferrals

      I think I’ll change a few of the rules too, woohoo, I’m a dot com mogul. $150 last month, no job but own a company . . . hmmmm, nother rule change? I help people all the time so that’s a check. I donate to Charities through my company as well as personally help every month, sometimes every week. I own my name as a domain, just don’t use it . . . nother rule change? Ahh screw it I’m just gonna create a new category Dot Com Yokel.

      By the way, the idiot above is probably on a Library Computer in school. That is a true POSER!

    I think I speak for everyone when I say that #2 is the best, but I think it’s not just the money, it’s the sense of accomplishment that comes with earning..

  • http://ryanshamus.com Ryan Shamus

    Well spoken!

    I agree with the posting frequency aspect. I mean seriously, it’s damned hard sometimes to come up with new material EVERY day. I look back at half my posts, and I can easily spot the ones I did on the fly just to have something up there. Unless you are a genuine expert in something and have enough knowledge built up to ramble every day about it…then piss on it. Like you said, post when you have something to say. YouTube videos are a dime a dozen, and they look like shit on a blog!

    Later bro.

    It’s been a while since you’ve posted a check list! Nice to see that you’re marking more items off your list!

  • http://www.leochiang.com Leo

    Yeah, the one post a day rule is unnecessary. Good work on topping 10k again!

  • http://flash.playaparadise.com Gregg

    The biggest one has to be #2, of course, so congrats on doing so well on that one!

      Indeed I think the $10k requirement is the hardest one to meet, nice job Stephen!
