While diet dangers and?weight loss and metabolism-related material will continue to be a hallmark of the 180 blog, I have created a separate blog that will emphasize such topics even more with little deviation into other favorite 180 topics like constipation, overfeeding, heart disease, blood sugar regulation, adrenal health, inflammation, allergenicity (a made up word I think), and so on.
It’s going to be a fantastic complement to the 180 Degree Metabolism: The?Smart Strategy for Fat Loss eBook and the 6-hour audio seminar that accompanies it. You can purchase that HERE?or HERE?if you haven’t already to be able to better follow along with the blog.
Check out the very first?blog?post at http://180metabolism.com/blog/?p=25
Anyway, I’m really excited about it. It’s a fascinating field with many stones unturned, and is obviously the?most widely-followed’topic in the vast field of health and nutrition.
I should also mention that ANYONE insterested in selling 180 Degree Metabolism as an affiliate vendor can now do so through Clickbank. For details on how to get a Clickbank ID (takes just a few minutes) and get set?up selling 180 Metabolism through your blog, social networks, or other channels (takes just?a few more minutes) send an e-mail, subject “180 Affiliate” to:
"It's a fascinating field with many stones unturned, and is obviously the most widely-followed topic in the vast field of health and nutrition."
Am I the only one who found that kinda funny?
Probably. I guess I'm just easy to amuse.
Hey, I select my words carefully madman.
I thought it was funny too.
And I wanna be an affiliate. I will follow your instructions to do such.
And btw, I love made up words.
Matt Stone on Clickbank? Yes!
Hey, that seems awesome. Does it means you'll go deeper into "topics like constipation, overfeeding, heart disease, blood sugar regulation, adrenal health, inflammation, allergenicity and so on"?
I hope to sir. I think there's been too much of a weight focus here for far too long.
This is just a quick plea for a forum. I am a reader of the ebooks and the blog entries and have found so much of value. I used to love to read the comments too–there are some great people making really helpful contributions. The volume of comments that are off topic is so large now, though, that I don't have the time and patience to wade through it–especially when so much of it concerns the politics amongst the blog readers themselves. I'm giving up at this point. It is great that people are having fun with lots of topics, and yet it would be so great for readers who are more time-pressed to be able to read only the streams that are of interest to them. I hope you will consider creating a forum or some similar format–I think it would make the blog more interesting to a wider audience.
I consider it every day. I think with the new site we'll hopefully be able to get one going.
I can't remember if I said anything about wanting a forum yet or not but I vote yes on it along with anonymous. If my boss knew how much time I waste scrolling through the comments looking for that hidden jewel, I'd be fired.
241 comments (as of now anyway) on the last post IS a bit much to wade through. A forum would be awesome.
Oh, I vote yes too on a forum.
Downward scrolling and the Control F search keywords make moving through the comments a snap.
Stevey boy needs to put a control key on the iPhone.
I agree jenny, i dont spend very much time a day on both blogs I read ( I don't read the comments on the other one boring people) and i haven't missed a thing even every bit of off topic stuff and if there is not enough to read I hit the archives one at a time.. i do read very fast though so who knows.
can someone explain to me what the benefits of a forum would be ? or how it would differ from the blog in terms of getting information. I don't understand really what the hype is about.
I've come across a few forums in google searches and I don't find them very useful if someone could convince me of its merits id get one of the geeks at my office to build it when they run out of work for you matt does not seem like alot.
Forums are soooo 90's. All that tends to happen with forums is more individual posts that have to be individually responded to. As well as the fact that having a comments section like this allows all people to view all postings that they might not otherwise read. Allowing ideas to be shared more readily.
that was my more or less my understanding. Im not super internet savvy on the user end so i figured id ask.
I think a forum would be helpful because oftentimes people want a variety of advice on their various ailments/problems, and this would keep all the problems and people straight as opposed to having 3 questions and only answers to the most recent one– especially on a site like this that gets upwards of 200 comments on a post, most of which are not particularly relevant to the actual post. I don't know, I think it'd be helpful. I also like reading other people's experiences and learning what I can from them– here, I've mostly learned NOT TO DIET. :)
A forum would be fantastic.
Take a look at these for example.
Good forums are worth their weight in gold.
A comments section is too linear. If someone asks a question unrelated to the current post then they get chided for being "off topic". Do I just wait around for a blog post concerning me and then jump on board? I don't want to view all the postings. I could care less about reading the details of Jim's BM's or Nancy's menstrual cramps. Just like most people don't care about my current bicep measurements.
Individual threads can be started to let folks track their progress with say, RRARF, and let them have a more personal place they can go instead of jumping in the pool with a bunch of freaks. I'd rather have my own hot tub to get in. I may come by every so often and watch the madness in the pool and anyone is welcome in my hot tub.
Forums, like blogs, can be created in minutes. I created a temporary 180D forum, but the Macdaddy said, let's wait.
Why NOT have a forum? If you don't like it don't go there.
"Forums are so 90s"
Nonsense, there are several forums that I use on a daily basis.
Tezza, I agree fully! Forums are the BEST.
Matt, will you consider a forum?
I am sure there are several people on here that could do an excellent job at moderating specific areas.
@Steve Amp and Paula
Great idea on the moderators. There are so many knowledgable people here now that the work could be divided equally and wouldn't be so much a strain on the high priest himself. If I'm one I'll keep those sucka's in line.
the problems I see with a forum after thinking about it
1.) as we see with 2 blogs the discussions get split up and hinder the synergistic aspect of a community.
2.) the big brother vibe .. there's enough cops in the world with out blog popo. Who would really judge what gets a pass or not? i hate the flame wars as much as anyone but i don't want animal farm or nineteen eighty four either .. most of the big 180 fans would drift away for sure.
3.) if it ain't broke don't fix it, disaster often happens when people do.
I do think making a blog where readers could send in there stats or stories via email and be posted up daily with some one new every time would be good to organize so feedback could be done. ( if you like matt Ill get someone on that and send you a draft to see if you likey,,, let me know.) this being the only plus i could see with a forum
Johnny, I put hidden jewels in 90 % of my off topic stuff btw if everyone did we would't have to scroll. even when im silly there is some truth to it as my main goal is to help.
1.) More information is a bad thing? If there was a forum then the "bandwidth" would be spread out across the many threads and not such a deviation from curent blog post topics
2.) With a big stick sheriff in town like yourself there wouldn't be any riff raff
3.) "Innovation breeds progress, stagnation has ED" -Me
I'm not trying to diss your jewels but I like Matt's jewels better.
The one thing that I see as an advantage of having a forum is the fact that once Matt puts up a new blog entry, the convo on the previous blog post dies off very quickly. A forum would allow a thread to continue on indefinitely if people still want to comment on it. We don't really need any moderators…we don't have any now, do we?
Im lost who is the sheriff ?
jewels are jewels some like rubies some like emeralds.
not offended at all mr T! :)
I thought it was weird the heard tends to leave a post in the dust ..hmm
You're the sheriff! (Or cop that will police the forums :)
Forums are horrible! No forum please! I get lost in forums! Forums have no personality. People don't become friends with everybody on forums. Tendency to little cliques. What would be nice is one of those little reply buttons so you could respond without going to the form and losing your place or having to go back to find what you wanted to respond to.
On forums: I had a super great blog I followed.. it had a group of regulars as well as occasional new people etc.. we really got tight. The 'leader' of the blog, started a forum, it got HUGE, now most of the people I knew from the beginning are not there anymore. The leader has ambassadors who 'rule' the place, but hey, they are not the leader, so their ideas and personalities now Rule. Hmm.
It's a case of how big do you want the pond to be? And how diluted the message. On this forum, which is supposed to be about wellness, healing etc, people began posting about their cat's illness.. um What?? It quickly lost focus.
So yeah, I vote No.
Finally, got what I was looking for!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it. Glad I stumbled into this article! smile I have you saved to check out new stuff you post.
Ich bin jetzt fragen, ob wir ?ber Ihre Websites Statistiken sprechen kann – das Suchvolumen, etc, bin ich versucht zu Websites kann ich kaufen AdSpace durch – lassen Sie mich wissen, wenn wir ?ber Preise und so weiter reden kann. Cheers mate Sie macht einen tollen Job though.
I would like to thnkx for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I am hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings quickly. Your write up is a good example of it.
