Multiple Streams of Income

October 25th, 2014
Comments Off

Making money online is a relatively new way to have an extra income. While there are some great opportunities out there to make money, there are still many people who are concerned whether this is a reliable source of income. While it is true that no one usually guarantees a regular income, you can protect yourself by minimizing the risk. The best way to do it is to have multiple streams of income. This way even when one source of income will no longer be profitable, you will still have many other ways to earn money. There have been a lot of cases where Google banned users from AdSense, and sometimes it was without a valid reason. It would really help if online companies had more respect for online entrepreneurs, and did not ban them without at least warning them once. Until that happens, I suggest focusing on creating multiple streams of income.

What I would like to advise you to do is to find at least one reliable source of income. Once you start making money from this source, start looking for other ways. Even if you do not find any new opportunities, you will still be making money from the first source. Sooner or later, you will find other ways of making money. This way even if your new ways of obtaining money will not work out, you will still have a reliable income from your first source. If you work hard I am sure that you will be able to earn a stable income.

Protect Your Identity

October 24th, 2014

In today’s world identity theft happens very often. There are a lot of thieves that want to steal something very precious to us: our own identity. Identity theft happens also, or even primarily, on the Internet. You cannot imagine how easy it is to commit identity theft with all those smart thieves wanting to steal it. However, you can protect yourself from identity theft at least to some extent.

Before you start protecting every data you send on the Internet, it is important for you to know that thieves might not be interested in everything you have. This is what they are mainly interested in: credit card numbers, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, ATM cards, various credit reports, online passwords, PIN numbers, email addresses, phone numbers, home or business addresses, dates of birth, mortgage information, and phone calling cards. By knowing what details to protect, you can greatly reduce the chance of an identity theft.

One of the most important rules is to not give out your personal details to someone who you cannot trust. Not all companies over the Internet are trustworthy so keep that in mind as well. Makes sure you only provide your credit card details over a secure connection, unless you deal with a company that you can really trust. The same applies to other personal details.

Translate from Different Languages

October 19th, 2014

To some people it might appear that the Internet contains only pages written in English. Of course, this is not true and there are a lot of interesting and useful sites that are Spanish, German, or French. Even if you do not know these languages you can still read such sites by using translation tools. My favorite translation tool is Google Translate as it can translate between over 20 languages including the ones that I mentioned. All you have to do is visit translate.google.com, and indicate from which to what language you want to translate. There is even a feature to detect the language automatically if you are not sure what language the text is. I benefited from this site a lot, and I know you will like it as well.

Dedicated Musicians

October 19th, 2014

A friend of a friend of mine is a dedicated professional musician. He plays the guitar for a living and he seems to enjoy the experience very much. He would probably be interested in fender stratocaster deluxe if I told him something about it, but I have not met him for some time and I have no idea what he is up to. I am sure that he is still into his guitar playing since he enjoys doing what he does very much.

More Traditional Music

August 9th, 2014

Being a musician definitely has many perks especially if you are into folk music. One of those perks is the fact that you get to do something really enjoyable provided that you have access to some quality equipment like the equipment from guitarcenter. I don’t blame any musician who doesn’t have access to quality equipment, but in my opinion something that is better such as a better instrument can definitely make a difference.

Participating in Contests

August 9th, 2014
Comments Off

Do you sometimes wonder whether participating in contests is a good idea or just a waste of time? So far I have participated in quite a few contests. Different contests have different entry requirements. I am not going to write about those contests that require entrants to pay a certain amount of money, because I do not think participants should be charged for such things.
The contests I am usually participating in do not have high requirements, although the exception was one contest where ten highest ranked posts written by ten different bloggers were winning an award. All of the winners of that particular contest put a lot of work into writing their posts.

Generally, I am more interested to participate in contests that will give me something valuable for my blog, like a link back, or directed traffic. I especially like if the organizer promises to link back to each participant just for entering the event.

I am almost always avoiding contests that have high entry requirements, and want me to do at least a few things like leave a comment, subscribe to RSS feed, write a post, and so on. Additionally, if there are many participants, and there will be only one winner, then do not get your hopes up too high.

To sum up, I would like to say that the right contests can be really great. Simply participate in contests you are interested in, and make sure you have a chance to win.

Music is Part of My Life

July 13th, 2014
Comments Off

One reason I like music to be part of my life is that it somehow helps me relax and feel better about myself. There were many times in my life when music helped me to go through some difficult moments. I do not know if you feel the same about music as I do, but chances are that you do. If this is the case,
everything that musician’s friend has to offer could be of interest to you. I do not know about you, but I am always on the lookout for some fun things to do and listening or playing music could be it.

Abundance of Free Software

July 13th, 2014
Comments Off

I think that it is quite easy to notice that there are more and more free programs available on the Internet. Free software is often very high quality and very often I refer people to use free software instead of paid commercial software. For example, there are some very reliable firewall software available, so why buy for something which might be lower quality? I think that this trend is a very good sign for an average consumer, because even if you don’t plan to use free programs, other companies will be forced to acknowledge competition. This may result in lower prices for paid commercial software and in the overall quality of programs being higher.

Something that is liquid repellent

June 5th, 2014
Comments Off

Since the summer is already in full swing, I like to spend time outdoors more than I like to do it during any other time of year. There is simply something about being able to have a picnic on a table with a table linen that is liquid repellent. Being able to eat in the garden is one of my favorite things to do in my spare time, something that I cherish very much.

Blog Awards

April 1st, 2014
Comments Off

Some time ago, I heard of a website that allows sending medals to people. I wonder if you will find it as interesting as I did. There are many medals to choose from, some more hilarious like “Irritable Panda Bear”, ”Mid-Air High Five”, or “Icy Cold Beer”. There are also some more serious like “Educational Blogger Award” and “Interesting Blog Award”. There are also some rude ones like a “Dead Cockroach Award”, which I guess are good for a prank, or you could also sent it to somebody who you do not like. Visit this site, and I am sure you will find some hilarious awards, although before you send a “Dead Cockroach Award” to anyone make sure that it is really what you want to do, and make sure that the person you are sending it has a sense of humor.

You can find the medals at www.justsayhi.com/bb/awards. All you have to do is choose an award, input the recipients name, email, URL, and provide your own name, email, and optionally URL, if you are a webmaster. What I like about this site is that it is directed towards bloggers, so if you are a blogger yourself, I am sure you will appreciate it. There are not many sites like this on the Internet.
