This looks good. When I saw the poster I thought another action hero bunch of crap, I was wrong this actually looks like it would be good. It’s about a man that sell weapons who is taken prisoner then he makes this suit to escape then improves it. A lot of action, a lot of stunts and special effects.
War Inc. is a movie about a assassin played by John Cusack. Boy does he play allot of assassin’s especially the funny kind. Plus they have thrown in Hilary Duff in a unusual role for her as and sexy pop star. With a bunch of other brilliant actors and what seems to be a very funny script this is going to be a very good movie not to be missed.
A good Romantic Comedy that is a tipicle chick flick 🙂 just my sort of movie. With Uma Thurman as the leading lady this would be an excellent movie.
Have you ever read someone talking about blogging friends? How does one make these friends? I have to agree being friends with someone you have never even seen does sound a bit weird but a lot of people that are blogging friends and have great impact on each other’s lives, most of them sometimes dont even know how the other person looks. That is the great thing of blogging. You make friends and they stick with you and help your blog grow. The thing is you cant just sit around and wait for these blogging friends. No one will just come up to your blog and start being your friend. You have to give into other bloggers lives and blogs before you can make these type of blogging friends. The point? If you want other people to help you grow your blog you first have to help them.
one of the more obvious reasons is to make money, you can start a business, a blog or whatever interests you, you can later change it to suit you better.
Showcase you cv
You can have a website to showcase your cv, instead of sending people your cv in only text, send it to them as a url as well. That will impress them more, especially if you are a graphic designer. I have seen some of the most impresive cv’s online in the form of a websites. Some payed blog jobs only look at your blog to give you the job. For webdesigners you dont even need a cv all you need is a website.
With you own website you can start a blog and type what you want, some social networking sites and some blog hosting places wont let you type certain things. For example express yourself politically with no filtering.
Use your website as your central place on the internet.
With so many widgets to choose from and rss feeds you can turn you own website into a brilliant start page directly to the links and things you use daily.
You can also embed more than one search engine at a time and make the site like you want it. You can even use iframes since you are not building the site for other people or search engines but for yourself.
Keep the domain for later.
You can always look for a great domain name and park it even if you dont use it. Later on when all the domains are taken in your country you can sell it for a lot of money.
Stay in touch with friends.
A lot of social networking sites allows you to feed your profile and comments. Why not intergrate it into your own website.
Use it as a business card
Put all your contact details on there and only give people your url to see everything they need to know about you or your business.
If you are blogging for money online and do not actually have a passion in what you are writing, you might as well stop. If you consider and think by yourself if you would blog without any money. If you dont make any money, would you continue blogging? If your answer is yes, then you have a chance of making money.
Unless you enjoy what you are doing and blogging about you will not be able to blog for years about it. It takes years to get a good income from blogging.
Blogging takes a lot of patience and a lot of waiting for things to happen. Blogging about something that you really dont have that much interest in will let you look at your stats all the time. But if you enjoy what you are doing then you wont check your stats every 5 minutes because you wont really care if you are blogging for 5 people or 100 people.
Blogging because you have interest in a topic is a great way of growing knowledge and getting to know more about that topic as you learn you blog.
Hobby blogging usually turn into real good cash because if you have passion about that certain hobby you would usually have new posts to write about. Excitement is the key to growing a blog and blogging really great articles. Some might disagree but if you are not excited to blog your next post and you feel you have to write it you are forcing yourself to write great content that really is not there.
So relax, enjoy blogging and focus on your passion in blogging.
There are many things that annoy people on blogs but here are just some of them:
Some blogs use crazy colours. Making their background white and then having light gray letters. That does not make sense. Colours can put people off your blog.
We all need to make or have money but just blend your ads in your blog. Its both annoying when they stand out to much.
Flash sucks. Anything that moves while you are trying to read something sucks.
Your blog should at least load before the end of earth.
Choosing a niche that you want to blog about can sometimes take really long. Except if you know what your interests is. But for most people that just wants to quit their day jobs and start blogging this is not that easy.
You might have a interest and you want to make money from that interest but not all things can be made money from. Before going into a niche you must check if there are advertisers for that niche. Otherwise you might waste your time and money to get a blog going but then when its up and running you realize that you cant make any money out of this niche.
Niche blogging is easier than just blogging because you dont have to struggle to get a topic to blog about since you entire blog surrounds a certain topic. But choosing the wrong niche to blog about as I said just now can be a lot of trouble and annoying since you wont really make the money you deserve from the time you put into your blogging.
So this is where keyword studying comes in. There are many tools for this such as google adwords checker and some other place where you can see if the keyword you decide to blog about can make you money.
I will feature those later.
When starting a new blog if you dont do something nothing will happen. How will people know about your great posts and articles?
Yes rss sites will help but they wont make your site grow like you want it to. So how to get loads of traffic in a short time?
The answer is you have to bookmark your own site. I bookmark my own sites on social networks. Not all of them are self bookmarking friendly if you know what I mean but there are some that dont mind you submitting your own stuff and you should really use those. Sites like digg.com and reddit will just ban you but who cares the internet has great bookmarking sites, especially ones for bloggers like Sphinn has a blogging section and Bloggingzoom is made for bloggers.
Sometimes people feel bad bookmarking their own sites but if you dont get your blog out there the time wont come where other people will start to bookmark your sites on social networking sites. Heck I even have my own legion of sites that I use only to promote my sites. Who cares if people say its unethical. If you have the traffic you will be smiling at the end of the day. As long as your posts are good you dont have to worry about submitting your own articles.
Just dont submit one sentence articles or dont submit your site with just a url to another site because that wont get you anywhere either.
What I am saying is: Post good content and bookmark it yourself, if you dont do that for your own blog when no one else is then no one else will and no one else will start doing it. So get your blog out there.
So you want to make money online?
Well one of the best ways of making money online is by starting your own blog, which you probably have done already if you are reading this.
What makes more money than a normal blog?
The answer is a niche blog. A niche blog makes more money, gets easier visitors and is usually easier to get a topic to write about.
Why does a niche blog make more money?
Because your niche blog should be word optimized for the certain words of your niche, I have a photography blog which is also a local niche site meaning, I blog about the place where I live at.
So search engines find my blog easier for the specific place I live in because i optimized my site for it. Now when they read my articles they have interest in what they are reading, which in return gives me ads associated with my niche.
If they are already at my niche site and the ads have the same topic the chances of them clicking on it is bigger since they already clicked on my site which should have the same topic as my niche.
Choosing a niche.
You need to choose something you are interested in. Imagine trying to blog about something that you have no interest in whatsoever, Health is one of the biggest payers in ads but you dont see every professional blogger going off and starting a health blog.
The reason is simple, you cant write for years on something that you have no interest in, that might also be why the average blog only lasts 3 months. If you get past the 3 months mark your blog may be heading for success.
But having no interest in the blog and starting your niche blog just because it makes more money than what your interests are will surely be much harder and difficult to get a topic to blog about.
Things to consider
Is the niche you are choosing to cluttered, meaning is there already thousands of blog like it or is your blog more or less unique? Like make money online blogs is everywhere and really hard to take a gap out the market, while blogging about the town you live in might not be that hard and might make you more money than blogging about making money online.
Are you clued up with what you are writing about? This point is obvious.
Ok this is it for now. Actually i typed this a while back and only publishing it now. I have a long list of half typed articles waiting to be half released so happy blogging!
The Dark Knight is a Batman movie. The name is The Dark Knight and as you can see the movie is dark indeed. With Heath Ledger playing the villain in the story, The Joker, it gives also a creepy aspect to the story to know this was the last film he made. I am not fond of dark movies with evil lurking in the shadow etc. so I believe this movie I would give a skip. But if you are for being scared and like dark alleys with crooks around every corner enjoy.
Every now and then I just blog about something else for a week or so and check out if there is a niche other than what I am using that might make my blog a more successful niche. Its one thing to check out a niche but it’s another thing to blog about it to truly see how successful you can be in that particular niche. That is why I believe you should get a domain name that you can use for anything, something that has personal meaning to you. Having a domain name that is stuck to one niche might be less profitable because once you have decided to that niche and you get the domain, there is no turning back. But having a domain that you can use for anything would get you much further. This blog of mine is targeting a few small niches as well as big ones. Now if I had used my other domain “problog.co.za” I would be able to write about South Africa or maybe things I like for instance : Ubuntu. But having a domain name that you can fit in anywhere is the key for having a long term blogging goal. Also remember your passion will change for things as time goes on. Then you dont want to build your pr and all those ratings from scratch.
Another thing about blogging addiction is that you will see your friends go one by one. Leaving you and your blog behind so you can be social together on your own. That is not the worst of it. If you are addicted to blogging you dont care. You dont care if they have been friends for years with you. After all, you have your blog now.
The thing about blogging is that you are actually being social all day. Even when writing. You are making the first step to a conversation. That is what blogging is about.
But friends in real life are not there for your blog. In real life we dont have friends by comments. Or sort them by pagerank. No friends can only take so much and then they are gone.
If you are addicted to blogging you wont even notice that you dont have 1 real life friend. Not that blogging is not real life, but I am talking about friends that you socialize with when you are not on your computer. But as this post is about blogging addiction and you are one that is addicted to blogging you might not even notice that you dont have any friends.
I guess if you can have many friend on the computer you can easily get friends off the computer as well. But the point is blogging addiction will make you lose your friends.
Time to quit the coffee and go out to a restaurant or something dont you think?
While the entire South Africa is going down the Karoo still stays the same. There are many properties available in the Karoo and most of them are located far from the busy life of the city. That is why I would like to live in the Karoo. Property in the Karoo is not that cheap depending on where you want to settle but bargains can still be found here and there. South Africa has everything, from deserts to City life but I would choose to live in the Karoo by far.
While many people emigrate I think you can still find safe places to live in South Africa. And i think that property can be found in the North West.
