A Dawn Books – A Showcase of Books by Personal Finance Author A Dawn

A Dawn Books Website Was Fully Designed By A Dawn


First Published: ADawnJournal.com August 9, 2009

Until now, whenever I needed a site I asked my programmers to design it for me and picked one from among those they designed. Take A Dawn Journal, for example. Once I described to my programmer exactly what I was looking for, he designed three sites for me, and I picked the one I thought best suited my needs and looked visually pleasing. The design I picked still exists and this is what A Dawn Journal currently looks like (as of July 20, 2009. I am mentioning this because if you read this article after ten or twenty years from now, most likely ADJ will have a different look). Starting then ’til now, my creative inner-self has been dying to design a website from scratch with 100% my own design and that’s what made it possible to design a website all by myself.

The only thing I had on my mind while designing A Dawn Books is simplicity. I tried to make it a very simple and easy-to-navigate site while giving it a visually pleasing look. On the right side of the homepage, I integrated my Books specific blog. It will show the first few lines of my latest blog on the current book I will be writing and once you click on the Read More tab, it will take you to the A Dawn Books Blog page which stays hidden inside A Dawn Books main page.

From now on, I will be using A Dawn Books to provide updates for the new books I will be writing. For example, I am hoping to start working on my next book Save Now shortly and I will provide updates as I go along on the A Dawn Books site. However, whenever I publish a new post on A Dawn Books, I will let my readers know on Canada’s Personal Finance Website-as ADJ has the highest traffic of all my sites. Take a look on A Dawn Books and give me your feedback. Your continuous support has made it possible for me to come this far and it is always appreciated. Cheers!

A Dawn Books Website Ends

ADawnBooks.com Discontinues

Hello everyone. Today I am going to show you my website ADawnBooks.com, which features all my books before taking it down. In the past, I have had 5 to 7 websites powered by WordPress for which I would write and maintain on a regular basis. However, this was taking lot of time and resources. Besides, I had to always chase after my programmer to fix things here and there, which became a nuisance.

To simplify my life and everything, I decided to keep one active website: ahmeddawn.com. As I am more concentrating on YouTube, this makes perfect sense and I don’t need to spend time worrying about maintaining all these websites and chasing after my programmer.

I still hold 35-40 domains, but they are parked domains and I don’t need to maintain them. I will have more videos on the Internet and websites in the future. Thank you for watching. Please subscribe and like.

Warren Buffett, Cash, Stocks, and Award-Winning Book Invest Now

Warren Buffett, Cash, Stocks, and Award-Winning Book Invest Now

Warren Buffett, the world’s greatest investor, richest man, and dedicated philanthropist, wrote an op-ed post in The New York Times on Oct 16. In this post, Buffett stated that he is getting rid of cash (lots of it) and buying stocks. Buffett’s decision to trash cash and buy stocks amid an ongoing financial crisis has created heavy buzz and it is expected to bring some confidence back in this time of market turmoil. I find Buffett’s article somewhat interesting because what he mentioned in it resembles with what I said in my book, Invest Now. Let me point it out to you by doing a comparison.

What Warren Buffett Said

What I Said In Invest Now

Page No.

“Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn’t. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value.”

“Stay away from savings accounts. Even if you hold one of those high interest–paying savings accounts, you will not beat inflation in the long run.”

Page 9

“I can’t predict the short-term movements of the stock market. I haven’t the faintest idea as to whether stocks will be higher or lower a month — or a year — from now.”

“Let me give you an eternal stock-market tip that will remain true forever. No one can predict the market. Not I, not you, not any analysts, not Warren Buffett. Simply no one can or ever will.”

Page 83

“What is likely, however, is that the market will move higher, perhaps substantially so, well before either sentiment or the economy turns up. So if you wait for the robins, spring will be over.”

“No one can predict the market, which will always have ups and downs. Focus on your long-term goals. Start investing, keep adding money, and stay invested. If you start early, you will have time on your side; even a smaller amount will turn into a large amount in the long run.”

Page 117

Invest Now is jam-packed with timeless material which is true today, and will remain true forever. In Invest Now, I emphasized staying invested for the long run and asked you not to panic in market turmoil such as what’s happening globally right now. Start investing, focus on your long term goals, and you will survive global financial meltdown.

The Fall 2008 Toronto Small Press Affair

The Fall 2008 Toronto Small Press Affair took place at the Tranzac Club, 292 Brunswick (south of Bloor), Toronto from 6pm-11pm on Sat, November 1st, 2008. I participated in this event, and I am posting a video clip and pictures for your viewing pleasure. The weather was nice (8 °C no wind) and lots of visitors attended the fair. The Small Press Affair featured lively entertainment such as eclectic readings, musical performances, raffle draw etc.

I like attending this kind of event and I encourage entrepreneurs to join any events like we had today. This gives you an opportunity to meet many other like-minded people and it will increase your networking capability which is very important. I was able to hand out lots of cards with A Dawn Journal site information on it. A good chunk of blog success depends on effective marketing, and you need to market your blog continuously to become successful.

The video is not crisp clear as the lighting inside the Transac Club was not that bright; however, the video quality is still good. Enjoy.  Visit The Toronto Small Press Group Website for more info. For more pictures and video clips, visit A Dawn Journal on  YouTube.
