Make a list of things the world needs more of, and “books about making money online” will rank right in between malaria-infested mosquitoes and male feminists. You open a car door in 2013 and you’ll hit some kid who thinks he’s the second coming of Tim Ferriss, because he mastered the art of the WordPress one-click install. The make-money-online genre is as overcrowded and scam-filled as the ab-exercise device industry.
Furthermore, 99% of what aspiring bloggers need to know is available for free. The links at the end of my post, What You Should Know About Making Money Online, are more informative than any product you can pay for. This post by Victor Pride of Bold And Determined is also very good.
But all that said, Matt Forney’s Confessions Of An Online Hustler is an absolute must-read for anyone even considering starting a Red Pill blog.
As every true blogger knows, 21st-century readers are only capable of ingesting information in list form. So, here are my top three reasons why you should buy this book:
1) Matt knows his shit. Take it from a guy who has written a few blogs and read a lot of faux-authoritative puff from a posing amateurs, Matt is the real deal. He has been in the game for a while. He has had his share of big wins and failures, and learned from both.
2) It’s Only Eight Bucks. In the highly unlikely event that you are already an expert in blogging, web development, online marketing, writing, and every other subject this book covers, you might not learn a lot from Confessions Of An Online Hustler. But you will definitely learn enough to justify the $8 price tag.
3) It’s Specifically Tailored To un-PC Red Pill authors. Confessions is a good read for any aspiring blogger, but frankly the nuts and bolts of starting a mommy/fashion/kitty blog are not that complex. Matt sets his book apart by devoting a large chunk of it to the particular challenges that materialize when a man chooses to hoist the black flag and start poking holes in the politically correct dogmas of our era. If you want to blog about indie music or vegan recipes, Confessions is a nice-to-have addition to your library. But if you suspect you’ll need information on protecting your anonymity and fending off Volunteer Thought Police, these are topics that this book – and only this book – covers extensively.
Verdict: Confessions is a must-read for current and potential contributors to the Red Pill blogosphere, and probably a fun read for anyone else involved in the community. Buy Confessions of an Online Hustler here.
