The Swagger #4 (Sunday Wildcard Edition)

I’m not a lawyer, but, I have had occasion to eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner a few times in my life—including kicking their ass in open court, pro se, in front of a judge. In fact, acting on my own, I have prevailed in every single case. Everything more serious than a small-claim here and there, I won, DIY style.

Alas, every case is different, so my past thousands of non-billable-hours experience with lawyers as part of the daily routine in a debt-workout company I founded says nothing about how correct I am in analyzing this particular case and the motion therein that’s the subject of this post.

First, though, a bit of brief housekeeping.

1. Yes, this is, once again, a new thing. First, I was going to do but one issue of The Swagger per week. 5 articles every Tuesday…2 for free, 3 for premium (1 Starbuck/mo). Then, last week I expanded that to 3 articles, twice per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays; each being comprised of 1 fee article, and 2 premium articles. Now, I’m adding a 3rd weekly publication—only 1 single article, substantive. Wildcard. It will be either free or premium, as the wind blows.

2. Seems people are quite curious about this new newsletter gig, so let me lay that out for you (yes, I got all the emails). It’s BALLS, man. If any of you have any inkling to start a newsletter (this is a pure newsletter, distribution via email…though there is a web archive of all past emails), this is the platform on which to do it. I’m already at 10,000 subscribers just 2 weeks in.

Briefly, it has everything built in that the BIG-ASS-PLAYERS use (premium subscriptions, ads, referrals, affiliate, etc.). And it has a partner program so that should you be interested in starting a newsletter, just click that logo or this link, and should you do something with that idea and pay beehiiv through one of their service tiers, I’d receive 50% of what beehiiv earns off you in the 1st year. For example, I’m on the highest tier before going enterprise and negotiating a one-off deal. My level is $100 per month, and I’m covered for up to 100K subscribers. So, whoever’s link I may have used when signing up will get $600 over my 1st year. Not bad for a referral link that’s fire & forget.

I’m already in the black. In just 3 weeks; 1 of planning, and 2 of execution. That is, my 100 bucks per month is already covered through the various monetization schemes I mentioned, so I’m into, and sopping up the gravy from this point.

3. No, this isn’t going to compromise the FreeTheAnimal blog. It’s going to enhance it and help it build a more sound foundation of deep content with broad and not niche appeal. That’s because I am the niche. Personally. I’m a walking, talking niche interest. Among the rare and endangered species, an autodidactic polymath.

Here’s what’s been published at FreeTheAnimal.com recently.

  1. The 100% Every Time Heartburn Cure You Never Heard About
  2. The Ultimate Sports Energy Drink That Doubles as Both Pre- and Post-Workout Meals
  3. Human Action and Social/Cultural Interaction Distributed by IQ
  4. Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Human Growth Hormone For Old Men
  5. Anthony Colpo and Richard Nikoley — 1st Video from Pattaya, Thailand
  6. Heartburn: The Acid Test: Big Pizza: 100% Pass
  7. Public Introduction to Freedom vs. Freedom, Inc.
  8. Groking IQ Like You Never…
  9. Grasp The Gravity of What AI Will Do To Your Life
  10. Anthony Colpo and Richard Nikoley Talk Thailand and Lascivious Pattaya
  11. Personal Update: On The Home Front
  12. Stop Making Excuses And Get Insatiably Horny At Old Age, Men

That’s in addition to and over the same time period (about 3 weeks) that I planned and executed on an all-new newsletter and published 4 of them (#0 – #3) with 16 articles, 8 of them free, 8 of them premium, and it’s already slightly profitable with about 10,000 subscribers.

Now I ask you, who’s the [restless and relentless] animal?

BUT HE CHARGES!!!

(you’re goddamn right, I do)

… And even that’s not all, folks. Tomorrow, expect to see a post, wherein, I solicit volunteers to test out my new and dare I say it, REVOLUTIONARY!!! full-body, high-frequency, all-encompassing gym workout program over a 5-week span to provide me with invaluable insight and feedback for finalizing the release product.

Nope, I’m not a personal trainer. I don’t own a gym. I don’t do online consulting. I call myself a bro only with my tongue firmly locked in cheek. And, of course, this is what makes this autodidactic polymath perfect for the task. I’m open to it all. I don’t believe in One. True. Workout. Catechism. I owe nobody nuthin, and I have no thing and no one in the whole world at all to maintain allegiances, loyalty, and fealty to.

Comin up!

Now, let’s get back to the perfect decision from the bench: the one that pisses off both sides!

The Swagger is an email newsletter at swagger.freetheanimal.com. It’s also a post category here at FreeTheAnimal.com. If you’re a member here, nothing to worry or think about. It’s just another post here, three times per week. If you’re not a member here, but you want the free content, which is several free articles per week, then the only place to access it is over there.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
