Damn! It’s 2012!

I missed blogging. I missed everything. I missed a lot of things. I missed miss lucy and miss candy! Oh darn. I haven’t been blogging for such a long time now. Anyway, I’m back in the world of blogging again! It has been a while since I lasted posted in this crazy sh!t blog.

Right now, I’m familiarizing myself in using WordPress 3.4.1. I haven’t been posting using WordPress for a very very long time. The latest version of WordPress that I’ve used is very 2.0. A lot of things have changed. A lot of everything have changed. But me, I’m still the same old me. I haven’t changed a thing.

Check into Cash

http://www.checkintocash.com

This website is probably the best cash advance and payday loans site I’ve seen. As you know payday loans exist so that if ever you get into tight financial situations you can turn it into cash immediately. With this site, CheckintoCash, you can get the money in as quick as 24 hours transferred to your bank account without the hassles of paperwork. You can as much as $800, probably more depending on your state regulation. The website is also upfront with their service, and very comprehensive as far as how they conduct it. Their FAQs page is definitely the most thorough that I’ve seen discussing the process. They explain to you everything from routing numbers, to which holidays will they not be able to service, to how fast you can get approved.. and they say you can do that in as little as 60 seconds.

I say you should drop by the website and see for yourselves how the business could be beneficial to you. I mean, you’ll never when the next big emergency will come up.. or just when you will be tight for the next budget. As this is a time when money is almost kept inside your pockets, it’s also a good idea to keep tabs on the resources that may give you that help hand when the crisis affects your finances. Surely, this is something you could benefit from.

THE FUZZ ABOUT QUEUES

Hilarity can be great unless it happens with someone with whom you have feelings for. Meet Ana, a 20 something lady from Chicago. She’s sweet, charming, and I truly wanted to date her… until today.

“Hello Ana, how are you today?” I started by making my normal greeting.

“I’m good, how was your weekend?” She answers. She must be into me. ahehe

…blah blah blah

So we went on to talking business as I had to send files to our head office in Chicago. Ana was assisting me. It would have all gone well until a window appeared with the words SEND ONLY SELECTED QUEUES

Now, this was a new word for me. I did not know what this word meant lest how to say it. This was the conflict of the day: How to pronounce ‘QUEUES?’

“Ana, a window opened and it said…”

“Yes?” Ana asks.

“send only selected…”

I deliberately missed saying QUEUES thinking she would catch it. Hows that for smoothiness, if that’s even a word. However, Ana did not know what the heck I was talking about. She waited for me to finish the sentence. Now I had to come up with a pronunciation!

My mind began to list a matrix of the possible ways to pronounce this ill spelled word. I never even knew such letters could ever go together. A gazillion combinations ran into my kokote, each presenting itself a viable way to pronounce it. Finally, in a nano-second, I have one.

I say slowly. “it said… ‘SEND ONLY SELCTED… KYU-WEE-WEES.”

Shit.

An alarm began to resound in my head “ERROR! ERROR! LOSER! LOSER!” It said repeatedly. In an instant I felt that there was world peace at my expense. A time when the world decided to stop what they were doing only to laugh at me.

Even my soul stepped from my physical body to laugh at me. “Paolo you stupid motherfucker!”

For go’sakes, I know ‘de ja vu’ and ‘coup de etat.’ But this one, in the 25 years I have lived on earth. Why have I never come across it? And how could I have said the one most likely NOT to be the pronunciation? I could I have just said KYU-WEES and it would have slipped on as an honest, non-hilarious mistake. But no, it wouldn’t be competely ME without making a fool of myself.

Ana was polite. Not a slight laugher was to be heard from her. She just said “It’s ‘CUES.'”

I send her the files while, in the silence of the office, I felt like banging my head on the computer. “That’s the word you wanted Paolo! That’s how you pronounce QUEUES!”

Devastated, I would try to make a cool impression for the last time in my life. Though, I could not afford to be smart lest my faulty minds hikes up another boo-boo. I resort to honesty.

“Well” I tell Ana. “They don’t teach these things in school do they?”

Ana smirked. Like I had allowed her to let out what had imploded within her body in the last 20 seconds.

“They didn’t teach me that either.” She answers.

Her polite remark put things back onto perspective. A fitting conclusion. Our relationship shall purely be professional from this point.

LEARN TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE

I have been earning from the internet for months on now through blogging and I think it’s time I share a few tips and tricks. If you dont have an idea about this topic, making money online through the blogs is a new but very lucrative field. I would say the average blogger can earn about 600 a month at least if he blogs full time whereas those who blog as a hobby, or those who do not mind the inflow of cash might be earning alot less.

The first thing you should do if you wanna make money online is to set goals. My goal is to earn 5000/mo. from blogging. Though I’m nowhere near this goal at the moment, setting this plan urges me to continue working, to strive harder. The upside is already that you control your time and earn at your pace, you should keep yourself inspired to make money off of it.

I cant say that every blogger will earn 5000/mo., but I can say that the potential is there and that, since this medium is still relatively new, as time passes and blogging becomes accepted into the mainstream, you will surely earn from it.

How do bloggers earn anyway?

There are two main reasons why bloggers earn, through publishing ads and by writing reviews. You can also earn by selling domains or links, by giving consultations of your field, or by accepting donations but these are uncommon as a primary income for bloggers.

Publishing Ads

The industry is called “contextual advertising.” Basically, you have to apply to a company that allows you to publish their ads – these companies include Google Adsense, Bidvertiser, Adbrite and Chitika. Requirements from these companies vary when you apply, but you will definitely need to have a valid email address as all communication will be through this. You will also need to have a website or blog.

If you do not have a blog, you cannot apply. I suggest you get one now and learn the ropes of blogging. You can apply with free services such as Blogspot or Khoops so you wouldn’t have to spend anything. Wait until you have at least 10 posts before you apply to any of the ad-serving companies I mentioned.

The basic concept of earning from publishing ads is to get your readers to click on those ads showing on your website. Yes, if that sounded absurd to you, let me repeat it, if a reader is in your website and clicks on your ads, you earn. It’s that simple.

Writing Reviews

Writing reviews is a very easy way to earn money. The same with ad-serving sites, you will have to create an account and apply your blog, this time with paid review websites. These websites include PayPerPost and Review Me, to name a few.

To earn from paid reviews, you will have to meet standards of the advertisers. Advertisers usually approve reviews based on their Google Pagerank and Alexa Rank. The better rankings you have the higher chances you have of earning. That’s a difference of making $5 per post from a blog that has a low rank to $200 per post from a blog with a high rank.

How much money can I earn?

The potential for blogging goes as far as you can imagine – yes, you can earn hundreds, thousands, hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions – but it is important that you remember that the amount of money you earn from blogging is relative to the time you spend on it and how much of that time is spent sensibly. The good news is that more and more people are making money off of blogging and they’re the ones who continue to prove to people that it’s a pocket-thickening industry.
