    I don't know how many of you have heard of Tyler Cruz, but he's an Internet Entrepreneur who makes $6,000 a month from some forums, blogs, and publisher sites. I recently did an interview with him and he offered some good insights. Check out the post on my blog here: www.winningtheweb.com/tyler-cruz-interview.php

    What do you guys think of the guy?

    He's a good guy. He owns some top-notched domain names.

    I mean he seems like a nice guy (have heard about him through John Chow in the past), but to be honest, there's a lot of people making $6K a month and more at his age and younger that keep it "under the wraps".

    Don't get me wrong, but the burst of people as of late boasting about their income in blogs, interviews, etc, is starting to get a tad bit... annoying.

    I'm sorry, gyutae, but something doesn't smell right.

    Did you do an extensive background check on this guy?

    Oe of the things I noticed is that he says PokerForums.org is his top money maker. At the time of this post there are under 100 visitors.

    There aren't any links on that board to his other sites, if he has any more, that is. If he is good at what he does, why aren't there? Or are there, and I didn't see them???

    Also, he started the forum in 2000, yet look at the number of threads he has. And that is his "top money maker"?

    I don't know....

    He sells text links + banner advertisements. He doesn't rely on any companies.

    I have been reading his blog (hisname dot com) for quite a while now and must say that he comes across as a nice and genuine guy who is trying to make some money online.

    Needless to say that Tyler has indeed been pretty successful in his ventures and his blog is worth reading for anyone interested to follow similar path. He seems to write things as they are without any BS and reports openly not only his successes but also his failures. And that I find refreshing - having the guts to show off his own failures and risk being ridiculed by his own reader/followers.

    Kudos to Tyler!

    LOL! Your previous thread was really below the belt and now you're praising the guy. What gives?

    Anyway, Tyler Cruz looks to be making good money. I wished I could say the same for me. ;)

    How can he be making good money on a VERY slow site, a site he says is his top money maker?

    Can't praise a guy who lies.

    But maybe it is a typo, and it is another site he is talking about? Hmmmm....
