Now onto the feature content:

This week on The Bunker Project we have a ton of voicemail feedback so we get into the questions!

Bonnie has a few new projects that she can’t talk about most of them just yet. One of her projects is to create a blog in a niche that she is not an expert in. She is going to be public about the monetization process of building the blog. Her community on facebook will benefit from her case study by using it as a resource.

Today she talked about two resources: JVZoo and WSO’s and Andrew put a comment on that post -> warning: WSO’s and JVZoo’s can be highly addictive.

Bonnie is planning to make some $$$ from this new niche site.

Bonnie also took a search course from Google. She liked the graphic search before. She learned how to search within a URL properly.

Bob talks about how he uses Google Power Searching.

Margaret has been writing Amazon Books and has 4 eBooks published so far. She has written about Gluten Free, Anti-Aging, De-Cluttering and more.

Bob asks Margaret if she is using the books to attract an email list. She hasn’t done that and isn’t into it at the moment.

Margaret says that Bonnie and she will be calling into the Bunker Show from Panama or Costa Rica when they cash out in their new business.

We talk about the Lifestyle Business model where you don’t actually have to be rich to live a lifestyle traveling and enjoying a 9 to 5 free life. All you need is a small consistent monthly income that is location independent.

We talk about how Google Hangouts are great for building community.

Norm Calls in and brings up how all our information is out there on the internet.

Margaret says the info is only out there if you put it out there. Andrew and Bob say that your info is being mined whether you are making it easy for them or not.

Bob advises criminals to stay off the internet.

Norm calls in to say that it is amazing that Social Media is only 8 years old.

Bonnie believes email forums and online bulletin boards were a form of Social Media. They performed a lot of the functions that modern Social Networks do. She said that the only real difference is that Facebook has a graphical interface.

We talk about MSN, ICQ, Classmates.com, Myspace and of course Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Bonnie said the mainstream tech bloggers are predicting the end of social media. That there is crazy talk. Social Media is constantly evolving but isn’t dying.

We talk about how the end of Net Neutrality could destroy Social Media by preventing new start-ups from entering the market.

Andrew said that it is not, shame on the Telcos and Cable Companies… they are doing what they should be doing which is looking after their own interests. It is shame on us… we didn’t stick up for an open internet so we should be pointing the finger at ourselves.

Norm calls in again to talk about the FCC and how the new commissioner is slanted to the big companies and Net Neutrality in the United States.

Andrew said that if there was a lot of competition the government could stay out of the business but since the companies are basically government sponsored duopolies

Norm calls in to talk about his second favorite podcast – The Tech Guy… the Bu...
