My Experience with Kindle Direct Publishing

My Experience Publishing with Kindle Direct Every year I have made it a point to try something new.  One year I took up painting, while another year I began learning the arts of ethical hacking and then for two years I decided to go back for my Masters in Education.  I am of the firm opinion that everyone should learn at least one new major thing per year if not more.  Over the last five months I decided to jump into the pool of authors that self publish on Kindle Direct Publishing from Amazon.  I have never actually considered myself an author and can remember a time (before pursuing my Masters) that I thought writing more than ten pages was a daunting task.  Last year my Bosses daughter decided to pursue a career in Self Publishing and has had great success!  Her Amazon page is under the name Bethany Claire and can be found HERE. I haven't made tons of money, nor did I expect to be a top author on Amazon.  From my understanding it takes a lot of work to not only write the books…

PWK - Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (Class Begins)

For several years now I have been intrigued with the idea of penetration testing and computer security.  In my pursuits I came accrues a Linux distribution called "Backtrack".  This has recently be renamed to "Kali", but the premise is still the same.  Kali is supported by a group called "Offensive Securities" who specializes in Penetration Testing (Ethical hacking), and training.  If you do a Google search on top IT certifications you will likely find the OSCP (offensive securities certified professional) listed among the top ten.

I finally took the plunge and began my journey with OSCP and so far I have been extremely impressed with the program.  Currently I am on day 5 of 60 and am already wishing I would have signed up for the 90 day course rather than the 60 day.  I probably will not post again on this topic until I have finished the course and with any luck and lots of time passed the final exam which is 24 hours long!!!!

Don't expect any hints…
