As you know, my blog title here is Make Money – Truth, no scam. In the beginning when I started blogging, I was that gullible noob who eats out of the hands of every internet marketers. “Make money instantly, make money while you sleep, make money in your pajamas, you can make money within 3 days etc etc.”
Lucky that I am very stingy and I never part with my money to make money. But I did end up with a lot of spams, empty promises and temptations to ‘Sign up now, this is a one time offer and you will never see it again’.
I have been blogging for more than three years, made a tidy sum and can claim that I made it on my own. Through sheer hardwork and clean or maybe rather clean methods.
So, yesterday, someone asked me, “Oh, I heard you are a blogger.”
I nodded sheepishly. Normally, I connect myself as a blogger who blogs about nonsense and craps. No big deal. But this person pushed it a little. She suggested that I join some pyramid marketer ‘How to blog FREE classes.’
I told her that no, I don’t think so.
She said he is gooooooood. Her daughter just joined.
I repeated, “No, I don’t think so.”
She said, “It is very easy blog and to get in.” Whatever ‘get in’ means.
I actually have an issue with this person because his pyramid marketing sells things from penis enhancement to vagina wash to some religious stuffs. You have to kill me before I will do that kind of make money module.
So, she pushed again. In the end, I blurted out, “No, thank you. I am already an expert.”
I noticed an annoyed twitch on her face. She must be saying, “Bitch, you don’t have to be so haughty, ok? I was just trying to be helpful.”
I do not know if these people who go for free blogging lessons realise that they are signing themselves up to a sleazy flea market that sells everything?
So be it that words may get around the community that “She is one blardy, boastful, arrogant bitch who thinks she know everything.” To hell with sleazy sites selling sex and religion stuffs under the same site with pyramid scheme.

Whoa, what was your *sassy* reply to her retort?
Yeah, I agree that most pyramid schemes are just scams. Hard to tell the difference from genuine MLM and pyramid schemes.
