      Working at home has many benefits

        I love working at home. There are just so many benefits, the major one for me being the fact that you get to spend so much quality time with your family. I feel that kids especially get a higher sense of emotional security when their parents are “there” for them when they need them and whenever there is some special occasion. You can really invest time and effort into making their occasions more special for them. For example, I still remember my little one’s first birthday party. It was such a memorable affair. We filled up the whole house with balloons and streamers to ensure that a birthday party atmosphere prevailed. Inflating balloons is not easy though because, after inflating them, I was totally out of breath and felt dizzy! We also used flowers to give a beautiful touch to the house. There was chocolate cake, pineapple cake, chocolates, ice cream, soft drinks, and other goodies galore to eat. There was also a treasure hunt as well as a game to see who could remember how many items were on a tray. At the end of the party, the look of happiness on my little one’s face gave me the greatest joy one could get. Read more...

          Keep your weight in check

            I always keep harping about how important it is to eat healthy and exercise. This is because blogging for extended hours, day in and day out, can take its toll on one’s health. Basically, one is prone to gaining weight, which can bring on a number of other diseases. To lose weight and keep it off, you need to be consistent as well as monitor your weight. For this, you can find some good digital scales at ScalesEtc.com which not only show you your weight, but also determine your body fat percentage. Some even go so far as to tell you how much of your body is water! The shapes and designs are stylish, and the color shades are lovely. These scales will surely enhance any area of the home they are placed in. Read more...

                  Promoting your business is important

                    Whether your business is an online or an offline one, promoting it can make all the difference between being (or not being) successful. In regards to promoting, exhibit houses can be counted on to do the needful, in terms of organizing trade shows or putting up presentation displays. These can include everything from table top displays to island exhibits, banner stands and truss products for a range of display requirements such as store fixtures, displays, concerts, night clubs, lighting, etc. Read more...

                                      Be a wordly-wise blogger

                                        I think it’s important to not only have knowledge about the field you have specialized in, but to also be wordly-wise. Knowledge breeds wisdom, and the more you read up about things that are outside your normal routine, the more rounded your personality will be. Of late, I have been reading up about various cultures. Like for example, today I read about Indonesian Cultures and the food, dance, martial arts, etc. that prevail there. A real eye-opener, I tell you. Reading about the various tribes, the customs, etc. makes me realize that there is a community beyond that in which we live! Read more...

                                          Chance to win a trip to New Orleans!

                                            I just stopped over at www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com and found a great opportunity. The folks over there are having a cook off going on where they are selecting the best recipe and best cook. There are presently five recipes on display to choose from. You can simply choose which one you like the best, vote for it and voila, you are automatically entered into the contest where you get the chance to win a trip to New Orleans! Cool, isn’t it?

                                            As for myself, my favorite recipe is the Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella by Chef Paul Anders. This recipe belongs to Colorado. The ingredients are Farmer’s Market Tomatoes and Cucumbers, Mint, Basil, Olives, Ciabatta Bread, Crispy Eggplant, Aged Balsamic Vinegar, and Tuscan Olive Oil. I think this recipe is the best because it contains striped bass, which I love. But I would do a couple of things to alter the recipe. Instead of mint, I would use coriander leaves. Also, I would use a bit of garlic. I just lova lova lova garlic!

                                            The best thing I liked about this recipe is that is uses domestic seafood, which is sustainable. It’s fresh, it’s local, and it has a great taste – what more can you ask for? Moreover, sustainable fishing practices not only benefit fishing communities but also ensure the long term health of marine resources.

                                            So do visit the site and choose/vote for your favorite recipe with the chance to win a trip to New Orleans prize package. Best of luck!

Well, Trusted Tours and Attractions offers discounted tickets to the best sightseeing tours in 23 cities across America. I still remember the vacation I had booked last year through them so vividly. My family and I had booked a Los Angeles tours package, and I would rate that vacation as the most humorous vacation I’ve had till date. Not only did we have a gala time, we had a lot of funny and silly moments during that trip. Like, for instance, when we went to the beach, we took along some funny costumes and shot some hilarious videos there. We also did a few lip dubs. For our second trip, which was to Cypress Gardens Florida, we took the additional help of online travel guides which further ensured a hassle-free trip with no worries.

                                                    If you’re planning your next vacation but don’t know what to do or where to go, you can get a lot of great fun-filled ideas by signing up for the Trusted Travels eNewsletter. Not only will you get a plethora of information, you’ll also get a chance to win a $150 Magellan’s Gift Certificate. But hurry – this offer ends on August 31st, 2008. Best of luck! Read more...

                                                      Have been working hard lately

                                                        Being a professional blogger is sometimes not such an easy job, especially when you have deadlines looming over your head. The chaos particularly happens when you have to perform a balancing act between your personal duties and your professional commitments. Like, for example, last night I slept at 3 AM (this is becoming a normal thing for me) and got up at 6 AM because, no matter how late I sleep, I can’t shirk my family duties in the morning, or the whole day will get ruined. That’s why I can really relate to my fellow bloggers like Rojoy who also have to perform a balancing act between work and home. “Work at home” setups do ease the pressures somewhat, though, and that’s why I simply can’t stop emphasizing the benefits of looking for work online. Then you can have the best of both worlds (make money and still be there for your family and kids)! Read more...

                                                          Plan to save on holiday shopping

                                                            Doesn’t time fly fast? I mean, it seemed like only yesterday when I was planning my holiday shopping and looking for the best deals and discounts. Now, in just a few months, the holiday season will be upon us once again.

                                                            Last year I managed to get some good deals by using Black Friday Online, which features the latest black friday sale information along with all of the black friday ads. Starting from this year, they will be having a shopping list feature which lets you add items to your shopping cart. The reason why this is handy is because you can print out your shopping cart list and bring it along to the store so you know what to buy on black Friday. They’ll also be offering full ad scans that you won't find anywhere else, all available to download for free.

                                                            Another good feature of this site is that you will be shown what items you can buy online even before black friday. This is possible because retailers display their black friday products online beforehand so you can buy them on Thanksgiving morning. A real boon, isn’t it? I plan to use this website this year as well. After all, money saved is money earned! Read more...

                                                                Telecommuting is catching on big time, what with the rising costs of gasoline as well as the added stress and time wastage that results from a long daily commute. In such a scenario, making money online from the comfort of your home is definitely a smart and practical option. Online jobs that especially have a lot of potential are those of editing, proofreading, and writing. Such types of jobs are available in plenty at PaperCheck.com, which is a writing service website that has created a niche for itself by catering to domestic companies that are looking to outsource their editing and proofreading jobs.

                                                                    I just chanced upon a blog called Absolute which has some interesting reads on topics like how to do business, grow your business, business resources, franchising, etc. It also has a post that reminded me about the importance of backing up your data at frequent intervals (preferably daily, if you can). The blogger says that just recently they have lost their blog along with the data again. They were backing up weekly, but also lost those backups because they changed their notebook recently and didn’t take a copy for their blog’s data. Unfortunately, those blogs they lost were the ones they have recently started to earn money online from!

                                                                    This is exactly why I keep telling you all to back up your data -- because you never know when your website malfunctions and you lose everything on your site. All your efforts can go down the drain in an instant, and you’ll have to start all over again from scratch. Read more...

However, being a professional blogger, one does not always get the time to do so, due to work commitments. Not important, you say? Well, actually it is. Being well informed makes you better at social interactions and conversations, as well as in helping you in writing better posts. Well, whether it’s summarized news, sports, politics, economy, health, high tech, entertainment, etc. you would like to know about, the good news is that you can be informed even while reading less, by reading a blog on News Company, summarized news which I came across today.

The word Ubuntu is a movement in Africa and refers to humanity. Everything is free. Similarly, everything for ubuntu is free. Ubuntu is better than the free distros as it is updated regularly. It has an ever updating list of repositories, and you will get software for anything you want.

                                                                                    Almost all software is installed with the OS unlike in Windows. Apart from this, the OS is very stable. You can run it continuously for any number of days, and it will not get overloaded like windows. You will not be attacked by virus, and you don’t have to defragment your hard drive like you need to do for windows. 85% of web servers in the world are Linux based. After reading this, there’s no doubt that ubuntu rocks! Read more...

But something that’s often overlooked is looking good on the inside as well. Did you know that wearing comfortable and quality innerwear helps a whole lot in boosting self-esteem levels, which in turn influences your self-confidence also?

                                                                                        Well, there’s a lingerie boutique that understands this very well and caters to women who want to both look good and feel good about themselves. All sorts of Designer Lingerie brands that are available from the US, UK, and internationally (such as Kiki De Montparnasse from NYC, Undrest from LA, etc.) are available at Boudiche. This is a fashion, designer oriented, luxury stylish brand that has designer lingerie, designer underwear, bra, knicker, french knicker, etc. Freya , Freya Lingerie, Fayreform, and Fayreform Lingerie are all available, and you can order them online.

                                                                                        Boudiche believe that gorgeous, feel good lingerie doesn't mean stopping their range at a D cup size. For example, Fleur T is stocked at Boudiche, to a GG cup size. Demand for cup sized swimwear is also increasing and hence is readily available online at Boudiche. In fact, they have a fabulous range of stunning lingerie and swimwear for the larger cup size to a GG cup, with some of the prettiest styles available. If you get a chance to visit the boutique, ask for your 'size box' and you can see exactly what they have in your size.

                                                                                        Sponsored by Lingerie @ Boudiche.com Read more...

This often happens with me and, apart from a bit of time wasted not doing the intended activity, it’s really not a bad thing. This is because one’s mind also needs a chance to rejuvenate. So, there’s nothing wrong with taking such a breather in the middle of your work every once in a while, as it will keep your mind fresh. Read more...

                                                                                                I think a lot of you are probably aware of the fact that using the computer a lot can result in carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, leading to pain, paresthesias, and muscle weakness in the forearm and hand. Repetitive activities such as typing or using the mouse are often blamed for the development of CTS along with several other possible causes.

                                                                                                The first symptoms of CTS typically include numbness and paresthesia (a burning and tingling sensation) in the fingers, especially the thumb, index, and middle fingers. Difficulty gripping and making a fist, dropping objects and weakness are symptoms of progression. The physical limitations caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are serious and this spells bad news especially if you are a professional blogger like me, because your hands are basically the source of your daily bread!

                                                                                                A multitude of possible treatments abound, such as treating any possible underlying disease or condition, immobilizing braces, prioritizing hand activities, and ergonomics. Contrary to common perception, medications are usually not able to modify the extent of the disease. Ultimately, carpal tunnel release surgery might be required in cases where other treatments don’t work, but that also carries risk.

                                                                                                However, the good news is that you can get carpal tunnel relief with the IMAK Smart Glove. This product provides the kind of help which allows you to continue to enjoy your active lifestyle, by helping you prevent repetitive stress injuries and letting you work in greater comfort at the office or at home. No doubt, this has a lot of potential for day long use at work or while blogging. So, if you have CTS, do give it a try.

                                                                                                    A lot of you guys have often cribbed to me about the fact that you’re not able to get into blogging or any online business simply because you don’t know the ABCs of computers. Of course, some of you are a little better off, but still haven’t mastered the knack of how to make your PC work to its fullest potential or how to fix minor glitches. If this sounds like you, and/or you're a "mom and pop" business person who isn't too familiar with the intricacies of your computer's operating system, then a blog called Not Guru is definitely for you. Tiips and Curiosities for Mom and Pop Businesses are in plenty and make for an interesting reading. The best part is that the information is written from the perspective of "a regular person" and not a marketing guru. You’ll find basic PC tips, software reviews, Internet marketing skills and, for a breather, opinions and commentary on social and political issues. Check it out! Read more...

                                                                                                        Taking pics with digital cameras and camera phones is an everyday affair. Till now, though, the only way to view those photos was by printing them all and putting them into an album (which could be costly), or by huddling your family and friends around your PC while you opened hundreds of files. By making use of digital picture frames, however, viewing your pics can be extremely convenient as well as affordable. The process is simple too. Just take a photo or movie, switch your memory card to the digital frame, and view. This will result in all your photos being displayed constantly wherever you want, such as the wall of your living room, at the entrance of your house, and on the side table in your bedroom on a fashionable, stylish digital photo frame. Digital picture frames also allow you to set the period of time you want your photographs to display. So now you can view every photo or short movie clip you take (with sound!), independent of your PC! Read more...

                                                                                                            When you take the plunge into blogging, you will have to first decide about the domain name you want as well as what kind of web hosting you will get. There are so many options available that you really should take some time out to think and choose. Once you get those initial activities out of the way, you can begin your blogging journey with full gusto. One good activity I would advise you to make a habit of, is to visit your fellow bloggers’ sites whenever you can, because it really helps to broaden your views and also helps you form your own opinions on various topics of discussion. For example, Ravi's blog talks about Linux, Opensource, etc. Also, leaving your comments on others’ blog posts is a great way to introduce yourself and get exposure for your own blog, because generally the other blog owners do make a quick visit to their commenter’s blogs to know more about them.

                                                                                                                If your wear eyeglasses, you know that they constitute a big expense in itself. A good stylish pair of frames does not come cheap. Add to that the extra cost of different special lenses such as sunsensor (photochromic), tinted, bifocal, progressive, etc. However, the good news is that you can get the lowest rates online at zennioptical.com, because they sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget.

                                                                                                                    Some of you have asked me for tips on how to make more money online with Yuwie. Here they are:

                                                                                                                    • Create an attractive template for your profile, add pictures, videos, something in your shout box, etc. so people come back to your page often.
                                                                                                                    • Accept all friend requests and add as many friends as you can.
                                                                                                                    • Always reply to comments and messages.
                                                                                                                    • Remain in touch with your downline.
                                                                                                                    • Post blogs and create clubs to generate more page views.
                                                                                                                    • Keep referring. Without referrals, you won't make any money on Yuwie.
                                                                                                                    • Keep at it. Yuwie takes time and effort but, if you consistently work at it (especially at the referrals), you will see the bucks come in.
                                                                                                                    Read more...

                                                                                                                        Ever been in a situation where you had to look good and presentable, such as a job interview or important professional/personal interaction, but you had a bad case of acne? I’m sure you have. Every one of us has gone through this type of situation at some time or the other. The reason why it’s such a bummer is because these days a lot of importance is attached to looking good, especially in the professional world. If you look good, you can make a great impression and get ahead faster. Hence, as a blogger, even though you may think you don’t need to bother about your skin’s health as nobody’s looking at you, do remember that a situation where you have to meet others in person can arise any time. If you look good, you won’t feel embarrassed to talk to people because you won't be self conscious. So, focus on maintaining yourself so that you can be confident and make a great impression.

Various topics are discussed such as politics, religion, philosophy, etc. If you do choose to join, you can create your own profile, write a question, and take part in polls. Nice pastime, huh?

Without doubt, working online is the “in” thing these days. I mean, you don’t have to face the hassles of having to commute to and from your office (which may be quite far) every day. That means it also goes without saying that you save loads and loads on gasoline (the prices of which are skyrocketing). Plus you don’t have to meet colleagues daily whom you don’t like. Some people argue that one is isolated while working and doesn’t have the benefits of socializing. However, I say that, if one wants to socialize, they can always make friends outside with whom they have full choice and control over when and where to meet. So it’s a relatively stress-free working lifestyle. Read more...

The best way to increase your Entrecard exposure is to "drop" your card often. Moreover, drop cards on active users. For example, if a user is dropping cards on you, you know they are active. Also drop cards on the popular Entrecard users. You can go to the Campaign section and drop on the top users per category. You can also find other active users through the Most Popular tab. Another option is to drop on the Most Recent users. This helps the new users and demonstrates to them that you are active. The forums are also filled with active users. Read more...

She admitted that she had gained a lot of weight ever since she started blogging full-time to make money online, and this was due to the fact that she didn’t often leave her seat for hours and also ate a lot of junk food. However, she started a regimen of a good diet, exercise, and diet pills to get back on track, and has started seeing results. I’m really glad to hear this because it gives me immense satisfaction to know that not only is my advice being followed by my readers, but it’s also working splendidly for them. I do urge others as well to learn how to prioritize and put their health before blogging. Always remember that good health is the biggest wealth you can have! Read more...

                                                                                                                                                            An important thing to keep in mind while blogging is to minimize distractions, so that you can get more done in less time. Of course, this is not always easy! This is because sometimes things are not in your control. For example, I am getting very distracted these days since my dog is unwell and has also developed fleas. However, I have just started using a very good flea treatment for dogs that I’m confident will take care of the problem. So, don’t worry, I’ll be back to blogging with full force soon! Read more...

Entrecard provides a unique networking platform for blog owners. It’s an advertising exchange network which has the potential to boost blog traffic through the use of a simple widget which a publisher can add to his/her blog. The 125x125 image represents you and your blog, so it’s part advertisement and part business card. By adding the widget to your blog, you can publicize your blog on others’ blogs, and they can do the same on yours, for free for 24 hours at a time. How’s it free? Well, the advertising is actually paid for through Entrecard credits, which you earn when you "drop your card" through a simple left-click on others’ widgets, or when they drop their card on yours.

                                                                                                                                                                When you receive a card in your inbox, it is from someone who owns and operates a blog, just like you. These readers are valuable because they in turn have influence over audiences themselves. So get your own EntreCard at http://entrecard.com/ and network with confidence. Read more...

                                                                                                                                                                    Whilst blogging long hours, I often surf randomly to have a change and to allow my mind to rejuvenate itself. Today, while doing so, I came across a very interesting article called Are You Normal or Nuts? that discussed the fact that a lot of people display certain quirks, or wacky characteristics, that are actually quite normal.

                                                                                                                                                                    For example, one person talks about how they have to use things until they wear out before getting new ones. I can totally identify with that because I do the exact same thing. And I totally agree with the response given as well, because I know it has nothing to do with being crazy - I just value things for their utility. Remember – money saved is money earned, right! So, why waste money on items that are unnecessary, only to clutter your house?

                                                                                                                                                                    What’s your opinion on this? And do you (or any of your friends or family members) have any quirks of your own you’d like to share? Do you think your quirks are cute or do they require professional attention? Do read the article Are You Normal or Nuts? as well and share your opinions.

                                                                                                                                                                    Also, if you also want to have good laugh, don’t forget to visit Reader's Digest Laughs.

Of course, in my case, there was not any fraudulent activity from my side at all, and neither was there on the part of the others who have also been scammed. Also, you will find that if you do open any support tickets with them, you will never ever receive a reply! So don’t waste time on this program at all, friends! Read more...

The best thing about affiliate income is the fact that it is passive – you don’t have to do anything. Once you sign up and put the readymade links and banners on your website, you can just sit back, relax, and watch the money roll in.

                                                                                                                                                                            That’s why I’m excited to come across another such opportunity to earn affiliate income from PayDay One. This is a trusted Payday lending service, based in the US and state licensed. By recommending their Payday Loans through their Payday Advance Affiliate Program, you will get paid $25 per new customer referred by your site.

                                                                                                                                                                            This affiliate program has a high conversion rate because the product you will be selling/recommending is a very good one. For example, PayDay One 's loan applications are 100% faxless. Their proprietary online application and instant approval process will guarantee your visitor's emergency cash needs are met around the clock. Approved loan proceeds are electronically deposited to customer's checking accounts the next business day. With their Great Rate Guarantee and simple process, they are one of the best providers on the Internet!

                                                                                                                                                                            Your customer must go through the processes of completing an application, being accepted by PayDay One, and having the loan funded. Also, he/she must not be a previous PayDay One customer. With a 60-day cookie life, even if your visitor returns days later to have a new loan funded, you will still get the credit. Text links and banners are provided in a variety of sizes.

                                                                                                                                                                            You’ll get your commission checks monthly on accounts earning a minimum of $100.00 commission. Accounts with a balance of less than $100.00 will roll over to the next month and be paid quarterly. Give this affiliate program a try to boost your online income. Read more...

                                                                                                                                                                                    I don’t know about you, but staying up all night to finish my professional assignments requires me to increase my caffeine intake. Is that good or bad? Well, from the point of view of keeping off weight, caffeine may slightly enhance weight loss in people who exercise and maintain a low-fat diet. This is because it may act as an appetite suppressant, increase your body's ability to burn calories, and act as a diuretic, temporarily decreasing your body weight. This is why caffeine is an ingredient of many fat burners such as slimquick. Hence it’s true that if you take caffeine, your metabolic rate will go up and you will burn more calories. However, eventually your metabolic rate will dip back below normal. Moreover, caffeine is addictive. So you will lose weight at first, but it's not your long term solution. On the other hand, a healthy diet and exercise are! Read more...

So, no matter how busy you are blogging, you need to take out time for maintaining your health and weight. Just reducing your weight itself and maintaining it at an optimum level can prevent most health problems. To achieve this, however, apart from exercising and dieting, you might need the extra help of some of the fat burners on the market. Some of them, such as hydroxycut have great brand recognition but could be just ordinary fat burners and actually be out-performed by the next generation of fat burners like Phenterfein and Fenphedra. When you decide to use any such fat burner, try to research the clinical evidence on the effectiveness of the ingredients and determine if the ingredients are actually efficient at blocking carbs and burning fat. After all, you should be aware what you’re putting into your body! Read more...

And making international calls of a long duration is one of my biggest expenses. However, I’ve found a way to save on my telephone bills by using prepaid international calling cards. In fact, I am presently getting the absolute lowest rate to various international countries by using these cards. For example, India calling cards help to save a bundle when calling India from the United States. There are other advantages as well, such as having mobility (calling from any phone including cellular), not having to switch your long distance carrier, a wide range of phone cards in one place to compare and choose from, getting the PIN instantly at any time from anywhere you have access to the Internet, and more. Now this is what I call convenience! Read more...

The best thing I like about LinkyLoveArmy is that they also promote your blogs and podcasts in their campaigns. That is, as you continue with their program, you will have the links to your articles put through the system and other bloggers will link to you. So, not only do you earn money blogging, you also receive incoming links as they promote your blog while they promote their advertisers! You also earn referral commissions when your referrals complete assignments. Read more...

However, a lot of people shirk from buying things like medicines online because they are not sure whether it would be safe and reliable, and if the product would be of top quality or not. But the fact is that it is possible to safely buy from an Online Pharmacy, especially when you use the services of websites such as DrugDelivery.ca. This is an escrow service that helps you to connect with a pharmacy in a safe and trustworthy environment. This ensures that you always get what you pay for, and you don’t get scammed or receive inferior products. Moreover, you get access to fully licensed pharmacies that ship worldwide and also provide discount prescription drug prices (an average of 40% and as high as 90% off). Remember, money saved is money earned! Read more...
