Your Ex-cellency, mind you, This letter is the last in our series of complaint, And this marks the beginning of the end of warning, Not forgetting the news that our forces are warming, Warming up against any proxy war with zero restraint.
However, for Your Ex-cellency's info, this isn't that time You used your Commander-in-Thief to administer a dime, To partition our nation into Chiefdom of Militialand against Civiland.

If you in the north live in despair, Here is your last chance for repair. For your endless suffering's reparation Is the ongoing drive for separation. Why then are you now desperate When you are able to be separate? Now we have all the findings.

We're in the bush no longer monkeys; son. We're in the town no longer donkeys, For we own the door keys for eternity, S ea. And modernity and prosperity of our posterity. By voting for secession in succession, We are putting to an end our oppression, The end of suppression by the beginning of separation.
We are doing this in the season, The season now ripe for our reason. We, the auto-government of the Republic of Ruralia, Voicing the will of the democratic public of Ruralia, Are writing to your Theocratic Union of Urbania. Our grievances are on the following discontentment: Firstly, your purely autocratic Government of Urbania, Has solely dishonoured and condemned the document That we all signed and codenamed "Bible of Peace".
You've violated its gospel, the cause of our fatal disagreement; Wealth: You're feeding our autonomous nation with ration apiece. In your annual tour, compare our city Metropollutant of Ruralia With its posh sister city of Urbania, proudly dubbed Metropolitania. All our resources, on our watching, are consumed up in Urbania.
Our intellectuals and workforce are abundant but redundant. Henceforth, right here, we demarcate to be independent! You are busy strategizing to turn Ruralia into Somalia: Yourselves landlords, creating warlords, tribal militia, And bribing our politicians to speak out your voice, And turning our villages into large ghettos of slum, And our own towns into large cities of Islam. With these experiences, we've no choice, But t' ask, demand, fight for our voice. They oft' say the end justifies the means, We, Ruralians, must reform all our ruins; The first option: thru the ballot, Last action: bullet!
That's why I invite you now For an exodus to in masses exit. I know you do not know That you are the wall of the great Jericho, The human shield around that blazing snow, In which you do not hear any external echo. I know you do not know That the political geckos cram you into social ghettos, In tomb-shaped structures like terraces of potatoes, Easier for indoctrination with their Shari'a law.
I know you do not know That we have already resolved in the South, To part way with those turbaned cartoons of the North, Who force your women to dress like our war widow. How about those guys? How about those ones? How about those other guys I see with their heads wedged among aliens?
How will they be? Will they not have their testicles sliced off like the proverbial man who had wedged his head into the elephants carcass stomach? Better, better the elephant hunter, for he avenged himself with his sharp spear? How about you, what will you avenge yourselves with? Eh, count me out if! Akutkuei Music Group.

Woody Allen. Merry Christmess! Reminder: this is called Christmas, Be very careful Welcome To My World - Exiled Genesis - The End Of All Things (CDr you call it Christmess! As others go to church, others go to maze or mess. Get set for a holy mass on the birthday of Jesus Christ.
Whoever shall use or misuse it will in a big way be surprised! Come such is a big day by which you will in any way be recognized. In other words, I insist, not by Christmess you enter my feathery heart. In other worlds, I intercede that by Christmas you enter my Fatherly Hut, But not without prior warning lest on an opaque mind thou shall be hurt!
This is the season in which every creation puts their neck in the noose; when from the year's toil trying to snooze Or from the year's spoil trying to booze. But the magi will think of a special gift; Then, of their age, a balance of the shift. Oh, the world is rocking us by age adrift! To my dear Christlets, I wish you a very Merry Christmas. To my busybodies, I wish you all a very cheery Chris' mass. To my boozy buddies, I wish you all a very cherry Christmess.
And of course, for your souvenir, it's just happing near here. At last, to all of you brethrens in the Lord, Amen a very Happy New Year, With a permanent firmament over a firm foundation that henceforth shall never shear! Frederick Douglass ? After all that has just passed all the lives taken, and all the possibilities and hopes that died with them it is natural to wonder if America's future is one of fear.
Some speak of an age of terror. I know there are struggles ahead, and dangers to face. But this country will define our times, not be defined by them. As long as the United States of America is determined and strong, this will not be an age of terror; this will be an age of liberty, here and across the world.
Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time now depends on us.
Our nation this generation will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. Your Ex-cellency! But he created us differently. Against this Black devil.
The raining tears, Youve seen that Blacks From your reigning years, Cannot rule themselves. That you shed Give them guns To late Stevo, And they will kill each other.
To let Madiba They are good at nothing Behind bars. But making noise, Dancing, Every dog has its day. Marrying many wives, Today is your pay, And indulging in sex. With Album) tears of laughter, Isnt it plausible therefore With no fears of slaughter. That the White man is created To rule the Black man? Because you orally defecated Can you imagine To me this ideology What would happen to our women?
Onto my face in their Red North Africa. Hence, weve good reasons to let them Out of your Boer presidential mouth All the Mandelas rot in prisons, Came as if to me, Bor residential moth this; thus: And I think we should be commended For having kept them alive.
The fact that Blacks Look like human beings I appeal to all Afrikaners And act like human beings, To come out with any creative means Do not necessarily make them Of fighting this war Sensible human beings. I wish to announce a number of strate- Hedgehogs are not porcupines, gies And lizards are not crocodiles, That should be put to use Simply because they look alike. To destroy this Black bug.
If God wanted us to be equal, We should use chemical weapons. He would have created us Priority number one. We should not by all means, White young men and women Allow any increase of the Black popula- To produce children. The merits of uterus rentals. For the time being, Ive exciting news We should also engage a higher gear That our scientists have come To make sure that Black men With an efficient stuff.
Are separated from their women I am sending out And fines imposed upon married wives More researchers to the field Who bear illegitimate children.
To identify venues I have a committee working methods Where the chemical weapons Of inciting Blacks against each other Could be employed. And encouraging murders.
The hospital is a very strategic opening. Murder cases against Blacks The food channel should be used. Should bear very little punishment Weve developed In order to encourage them. Excellent slow killing poisons And fertility destroyers. My scientists have come up with a poison That can be smuggled into their brews Secondly, To effect slow poisoning results Most Blacks are vulnerable And fertility destructions. To money inducements. Ours is not a war Ive set special fund That we can use the atomic bomb, To exploit this venue.
So we must use our intelligence. The old trick of divide-and-rule Is still valid. As the records show Our experts should work That the Black man is dying Day and night To go to bed with a White woman, To set the Black man Here is our unique opportunity. Against his fellowman. Our Sex Squad should go out His inferior sense of morals And camouflage with apartheid fighters Can be exploited beautifully.
And quietly administer the chemical Welcome To My World - Exiled Genesis - The End Of All Things (CDr. And here is a creature White men in the squad should go That lacks foresight. For the militant Black woman There is a need for us And any other vulnerable Black woman. To combat him Weve received a new supply of prostitutes In long term projections From Europe and America That he cannot suspect. Who are desperate To take up the appointments. My special department Is already working to come out My latest appeal With a long-term operation blue-print.
Is that in the maternity hospital I am also sending special request Operations should be intensified. To all Afrikaner mothers We are not paying those people To double their birth rate. To help bring Black babies It may be necessary too, To this world To set up population boom industry But to eliminate them By putting up centres From the very delivery moment. Where we employ and support My government has set aside special land.
Money can do anything for you, So, while we have it, We should make the best use of it. In the meantime, My beloved White citizens, Do not take to heart what the world says, And dont be ashamed of being called racists, I do not mind being called The architect and King of Apartheid. I shall not become a monkey Simply because someone Has called me a monkey. I will still remain Your bright star. Fare thee well, Your Exilency. Get ready to face Stiff Biko.

And luckily the Divi Community itself is something special, you said that, I think maybe before we went live, you said you love the Divi Community. It is something special, it just attracts good people.
But I have two thoughts on that. One is that everything rises and falls on leadership. So you as the leader of any sort of group, you have to Album) the precedents, which kind of goes back to the five points that we talked about. So people are going to see the leader and they generally kind of act like the leader a lot.
So as somebody who is running a community, people are going to have their own personalities and stuff, but you set the precedent, and that goes back to like staying involved. And I love that quote because it really resonated with me. It was showing up, it was being helpful… Even though the group has changed at a higher level now compared to what it was when we just had a few hundred members and it was a lot easier to be really engaged, the core is still there. Even when I jump in there occasionally and people see the owner of their group giving a free snippet of code or some free advice, it still looks really good and that really sets the precedent.
So, yeah [crosstalk ], yeah. And tell us about how you got into it and really grew it out. So I started doing that and then… I will say for anyone who wants to produce content, one thing that I did that really helped from the get go was I did a tutorial a week for 12 weeks. I gave myself some light at the end of the tunnel, so I was able to commit to 12 tutorials, take my time with those, and those first few months of doing tutorials blew up my brand.
So I was doing tutorials, building up my YouTube channel, building up my site with the blog. And then my whole goal after that… Because I was still running my web design business but I was scaling it so I did it on kind of a low level the first year, I was just doing it essentially part-time, maybe 10 to 15 hours a week I would invest in doing a tutorial in the Facebook group. But then it started getting bigger and bigger and then I started offering layouts that I did with Divi. So if I came up with a team page layout, I would package it up and offer it on my site as just a cheap product basically.
But what I realized was I really enjoyed the teaching aspect, and then long story short, at this point, my first daughter was born and we spent 56 days in the NICU, the Newborn Intensive Care Unit with her, so I had to really reevaluate what I was doing. I basically put everything I was doing with JoshHall.
But funny enough, at that time, my YouTube channel got featured on the Elegant Themes blog by another contributor, and then I looked at my subscribers and they like doubled, they went from like 1, to like 3, And to answer your question, you wonder what the first course was? My first course was how to create a website maintenance plan for recurring income for web designers. And the reason I was so passionate about that was because our maintenance plan was one of the things that got us through the NICU.
Luckily I had the team at that point, but our maintenance plan was basically paying our bills through that time, the recurring income I had with my clients for hosting and maintenance. I built the course out and then I launched that in, I think, August of And it went really, really well, I think I had almost signups for the first pre-order and launch phase and I got such good feedback on the course that really, it was all downhill from there, man, I was a full blown course creator right then.
And then once the new year came around inI went on a tear, I did like four courses in a few months. So, at that point, my lead designer for my agency was really taking off and able to handle a lot of that, so I almost went like full blown course creation. Wow, that is such a cool story. So that was the big thing for me, I actually just always liked teaching too. Before all this happened, I was actually an advisor, I still am an advisor to a local high school media program.
And years ago, they would send me in like once a quarter for a full day and I would have a couple of students and I would just show them how to do websites and some basic design stuff, and that really got the itch for me to do that on a bigger level. Now then, it was like one to one or two students who were maybe halfway interested. Most students were just wanting to learn video game design and they would just kind of space out, whereas I had some students in there that were all about it. And when I found the students that were all about it, that just lit me up, it was like the favorite thing I had done to that point.
So when I started doing courses, I realized it was like those few students I had back then, but it was like hundreds of them. So yeah, that was the initial it, and then it just kind of grew from there. I wanted to dig in for the WordPress freelancers and agency people listening to this. Well, first off you need to think about your clients because you got to think about the benefit for the client. So you got to think about your client, you have to think of the benefit for them.
So you have to think about it for the client and really highlight the benefits. As far as the plan itself, I would say, trying to think of a good way to recap this, I would say limit the amount of tools that you use in your toolbox.
The next big thing is the extra platforms for the maintenance plan. So you want to have something that is going to be trusted, and that really handles all the main aspects for like updates, for plugins, basic optimization.
With ManageWP, you can do reporting, which is huge, keeping in touch with the clients is absolutely huge, and then you can do backups and stuff like that.
And then as far as kind of a fifth thing, I would really, really encourage everyone to be proactive in keeping in touch with their clients apart from just sending reports, like really nurture those relationships. And the really cool thing about maintenance plans is not only does it end the feast and famine, but it keeps you from having to sell every day or every week. It probably goes back to what I said earlier, which is consistency.
I just consistently pumped out Divi tutorials which really elevated my exposure on YouTube and my website. But consistency, consistency is a big one. And how did podcast enter the conversation? Because you started with blogging and guest blogging and YouTube, when did the podcasts roll on the scene and why?
Yeah, SoI had just went through releasing a bunch of courses together and at that point I had like six courses and I was working on my next course, which was going to be the biggie, which is my business course.
But also I knew as a podcast listener, there was something about podcasts that builds likeability, trust and just a lot of other aspects that are to get with videos, particularly like tutorial videos. So once I got my business course done, I knew I wanted to get going on the podcast. So I invested in that, it was a big investment, but I went through that course and it rocked my world, it really helped set me up.
So went through that course, it really helped set me in motion to have a successful podcast [inaudible ] start. Trustability, I just made up a word.
