The Execution of Saddam Hussein

Figured I'd have to post something about it at least.

Visit My Blog Buddy: AlyCat's Claws

I was trying to think of a title to describe Aly, but decided to go with a theme with my blogging friends. I think I'm going to start making more posts about them all now and you will see them with "Visit My Blog Buddy" titles. All of them will be on my sidebar too under my "Blog Buddies" section.

This character AlyCat's Claws is just a funny person. Her writing style is great and she is very honest. She really should have some things there that you can relate to.

I still get a good laugh out of her "Blog Song":

Blog Song

Head over to her blog and say hi.

Users Determine Search Engine Rank?

Search engines are pretty much what drive the net. They help people find you and your search engine Page Rank, or Web Rank is talked about everywhere. It helps the engines define how popular you are based on how many links you have to your site as well as other factors I don't have time to explain, nor completely understand.

So what happens when a search engine comes out and lets the users actually rank your popularity? Well...right now, Sproose home page offers just that very feature. Just type in a search and the index will come up. Then you can rate the relevance of the sites that come up with a 5 star rating system. 5 being best and 1 being worst. You can even remove the site from the list altogether for your searches.

Who Will the Lions Draft #1 Overall?

PayPerPost Acquires

Recently PayPerPost made the acquisition of which is a way to add a bit of revenue to your blogs.

News Story

On top of already being able to earn with PayPerPost, a site that brings bloggers together to create blog advertising for advertisers, this site is going to help you acquire advertisers by placing a banner on your blog for them to do so. This is really why I signed up for it in the first place, but I've found that they have some other nice features that will help bloggers maximize their performance and tracking.

They have a free tracking service that gives you various blog statistics such as visitor stats as well as Adsense stats. The service brings bloggers and advertisers together to help us make more money with our blogs. A community forum is available too that will give you even more ideas and more people to connect with.

It is going to be interesting to see how PayPerPost incorporates the site with their own. I believe it will certainly bring more notice to the site and in turn give us members more opportunity to earn more money. I'm just glad to be a part of both and look forward to even more income.

Little David is in the 5th grade. Yesterday morning when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living, all the typical answers came up: fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.

The teacher noticed that little David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so she asked him about his father.

"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay bar and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go out to the alley with some guy and do it with him for money."

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some coloring, and took little David aside to ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"

"No," said David, red faced. "He plays for the Detroit Lions, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."

Visit My Blog Buddy: Toil

When you are new to blogging you try to make some friends to learn some things about it. I have met quite a few people lately, but this one has been most helpful. We are kind of learning together, but she has made some great strides with her blog and I want you to stop in and take a look.

Toil has a great look to it with all kinds of great info for anyone who is starting out with a blog. Tons of neat stuff on the sidebar to look at. She writes extremely well and just seems to "Get it". Leave her a comment somewhere and I'm sure she'll take a look at your blog too.

What is Toil?

Toil is an ongoing discussion of all things: a place to find job discussion, interview tips, resume writing resources,work at home opportunities (WAHM), or reviews of products and services. Toil is also the story of my life in small snipets.

What did you get for Christmas?

I guess I'm getting too old to get presents anymore. I get gift cards because I'm "impossible to buy for" apparently. Only actual gifts I got this year was some Bose headphones and a Bose speaker system for my iPod. Not exactly something to complain about I know. Just didn't feel much like Christmas this year. Didn't even snow.
