Making connections

Connections are made from making an acquaintance online. After a chat over something in common this may turn into a connection and then online friendship. As a matter of fact, I have made an offline friend from an online connection also and we have the occasional catch up offline. I don't find too many online people from Adelaide, Australia.

Online connections can be made in many ways. Some include Facebook, Twitter, Skype and other social media sites. Recently I found a great social network site called IBOtoolbox and have had many connections there which later became Skype connections to talk, share and refer. Sharing screens on Skype for helping each other is such a great idea! However, today while doing some research on this topic I came across this YouTube video about StumbleUpon which I know nothing about and I'm going to see if it rings true. So please share this site on StumbleUpon over on the Social Media sites in the right hand column and it would greatly be appreciated.  This is the icon. Please comment if you know more about StumbleUpon than I do!

Some other ways to interact with people are through the traffic exchange chats also. Click Track Profit however is the only Traffic Exchange with a Team Chat! Refer to my last blog post HERE about the new team surfing at Click Track Profit. I have gotten to know my Team Leader from the Crazy Cats People. There you go! Another connection. In fact I have more CTP friends now from my fellow team mates. 

So as a good team member that I am, I'm letting you know that Nathan LaPlante, my brave and mighty leader, has just opened a new Traffic Exchange called Surfing Cats. Surfing Cats currently has a new member bonus of when you surf 50 you automatically get 500/500/500. So if you want your website seen 500 times for little effort this is a great place to advertise. Plus if you join by clicking the banner below Nathan will ADD ANOTHER 100/100/100 for you! Thats 600/600/600! But only through this link. Just for being a cool surfing cat! As most traffic exchanges are free this one is free also to join.

Until next time
Happy surfing
Kris Rogers

Teams be in it to win it

Teams are individuals joining together towards a common goal. Many traffic exchanges have team surfing. The common goal is to surf as an individual but also towards winning for your team. Collectively the individuals surfing scores make up the team score.

Currently, I am a member of a team at StartXchange (Old Skoolers ), LegacyTeamCoop (SweetAsSugar), Traffic Swirl (United Surfers), and now Click Track Profit (CrazyCatPeople). I dedicate most of my time to these programs anyway so joining a team is my way of saying "I am committed to this site". There is no point joining a team to not "be in it" and try your best. 

Why do you join a team? Do you trust members of that team? Do you know people in that team? What will you bring to the table? How much time do you have dedicated to the site and for your cause? Teams require commitment, enthusiasm (perhaps shown by the leader) and loyalty unless you are poached (bribed) to join another team. Teamwork builds trust. Trust builds friendship.

The newest team that I belong to is the "Crazy Cats People!" I do love cats after all....And I had a crazy cat once...I was asked to join another team but I was too late to join because that team was full (in fact I was asleep) because the CTP launch of teams occurred during the wee hours of the morning here in Australia. If I was quick enough I would have joined that other team because their leader is a person I think highly of in this industry and I know he will be a great team leader (Tom Wacker :) I do not know many of the people in my team but I have been accepted in the Crazy Cats and been in contact with the leader a few times. I love the aspect of the team chat also so this helps me get to know my teammates a bit better! At least I have more people who I can share my badges with now. I'm not sure what the prizes will be in this competition but there is a blog dedicated to the teams HERE. I know I currently get 10% more credits when Nerd Surfing because I am in a top 10 team.

T*E*A*M = Together Everyone Achieves More!

Until next time

P.S. I am dedicating this blog post to my new team. May we always do our best....
