I’m a Dad

Hi everyone,

I haven’t been as active online over the past week, because I’ve been busy being a dad! YesΒ  that’s right my wife gave birth to a beautiful and 100% healthy baby boy. Being our first child, there has been a lot to learn, but I seem to be getting the hang of how to change a dirty nappy!

We’re so proud of our little guy and I am looking forward to the time ahead, and I am also so proad of my wife too! Of course it’s affiliate marketing business as usual for me next week, but I must say runnnng an online business from the comfort of home, makes being a parent a lot easier, no need to ask for time off when I need it and I always here to hang out with the family, man I love the internet sometimes.

Anyway, just wanted to post this rather personal blog update, because it’s not always about business.

I’ll be updating soon with some cool tips for you all.

Have a great day

    Hey Capn Hook

    Thanks, and yeah the sleepless nights!! Although he is sleeping well, seems to sleep 4-5 hours and fed then sleep again, so at this stage all is going very well, lets just hope it stays that way!

    Hey Matt,
    Congrats to both of you. He is a good looking Aussie! Hope you are not going to loose too much sleep attending to the little one?

    Hello Matt,
    Biggest of congratulations and very best to you and your wife!

    And of course big…big.. welcome/health and happiness to you young fellow!

    Shhhh…we have to somehow convince your mom and dad to take you to Thailand: Surin province: to have an Elephant ride on your first birthday. Would you like that? How many one year old’s could claim to have experienced something like that? Half kidding mom and dad….!

    Take your time Matt. It took me 3 years to discover your wonderful – life/health changing information [as a result: my IMADD/BP condition has stabilized and so has my CC over spending].
    Hah…another week or two we can put up without you.

    Can you share with us what wp plug ins -paid and free do you recommend to use? Thank you!

    From Thailand – Ex Sydney!

    hello Matt,
    I congratulate you and your wife for the birth of a son. I wish him good luck and happy moments with you. I am a father of three children and I know that the best thing in the world is when your baby looks and squeezes to you. Then you forget all the sleepless nights.

    PS: I read with interest your blog and I’ve already learned a lot. I am completely new to the IM and I can not wait to find out something new from you. Well done and thank you for all the information so far.
    Once again all the best from Slovenia.

    Hey Matt,

    Congratulations to you and your wife on your new baby boy. A handsome fella I might add. I remember the day our son Daniel was born. When I first layed eyes on him my world changed completely. I’ve never experienced a surge of LOVE like I did then.

    Since then we’ve had another awesome child ,a beautiful daughter this time. Being a dad to two great children is so unbelievably phenomenal.
    I wish you and your new family all the best.

    Matt, congratulations to you and your family πŸ™‚

    Only just seen this post, as I stopped by to read through a few things. It is a fabulous time, so enjoy and don’t worry about all of us desperate for your great posts! Our son is now a little over 2 years old and is the reason I want to make money from the internet, can’t imagine leaving him to go to work every day, would miss so much.

    Ohhh and I remember the early days sticky like black treacle nappies, soon gets easier πŸ™‚

    Best wishes to you all,

    Congratulations Matt to you and your wife. I have four grown up children so dirty nappies and sleepless nights are not new to me but internet marketing is. So I just want to say a big thank you for all the help you provide through your blog. I am busy working through your video course which is great.
    I suppose you could say that I am in the early days of pregnancy as far as internet marketing goes. I hope that I can go full term and produce something as beautiful as your baby boy.

    Some things make life good, like IM and your excellent information. Then there are important parts that just make life Great, like having an awesome wife and starting a family. While you may be an Aussie and I’m not sure if you celebrate the American holiday of Thanksgiving, I’m sure you will be giving thanks for this wonderful child. πŸ™‚

    Many blessings upon your family. Just to let you know, I am thankful to you for all the blessings you have brought my way from your sharing.

    Congrats again!

    congratulations to you and your wife, my wife and i got twins it is an adventure, many many sleepless nights, but a lot of fun.

    Congratulations! A little over a year ago, my employer went bankrupt, my son was coming, and I started to try IM. After losing over a $1000 on Adwords and getting milked by “IM Guru’s” who have no qualms whatsoever about taking money from a guy who is just trying to feed his family, I ran across your blog. Since then I have learned that I have been niche for the “Guru’s,” and since have actually started to make a little money here and there. You write exceptionally well, and it is obvious that you come from a good place inside. ~From one new father to another, I wish you all the joy, happiness, special moments (and sleepless nights) that the blessing of a new baby can bring. Rest assure I will continue to follow and recommend your blog to my friends, family and associates. As your hard work is truly appreciated.
