Pistons are rolling...

Ever since they got CWebb they have looked unreal to me. The passing has picked up to a point that I think they are the best passing team in the NBA now. HAven't had as much time to watch them as years past (every game), but I do catch one here and there. Real excited for the playoffs with waht some of the bench guys have been showing. MAxiell is my boy.

Money I make blogging

I've been with PayPerPost I guess a couple months now and have been earning pretty good money just blogging away like I normally would while doing paid post here and there. While there may be other companies that offer paid blogging for us there aren't any that compare to PPP.

Since starting out I have earned well over $1000 from PayPerPost and I am getting to the point that this is actually more productive than most jobs I could go out and get. I think with in a month or 2 I will be earning well over $100 a day and actually am pretty close to that right now. All that just from blogging my friends.

PayPerPost seems to have the same idea about this market as I do. Stay ahead of the competition and offer a product that advertisers and bloggers can benefit from. Use disclosure while others do not so that they can distinguish themselves from the pack. My only hope is that they keep making the right decisions and give us all the opportunity to continue this for a long time.

The concept of blog marketing is everywhere, but PPP offers advertisers many more options to get relevant links to their sites as well as the ability to exclude sites that may just not be appropriate.

This Anna Nicole Stuff

This stuff is driving me nuts. I can't get any news on TV anymore. She never did anything of note other than pose for Playboy. OK...she screwed an old man and he left her a bunch of money. Where she is buried though has no relevance to my life. Show me news about the candidates, the stock market, and Iraq. I don't care about this celebrity crap. That's what E! is for and not CNN, FoxNews, etc. These stations are pure crap.

Only thing about this whole thing that gave me a chuckle was the slobbering judge. His display was just too much. I couldn't help, but laugh.

Newsletters for Email Marketing

When managing a community on the web, or just a business that you want to keep your customers up to date on it is always a good idea to create and distribute a newsletter to those people that are interested. Having those that come to your site and subscribe to your newsletters by e-mail is one of the best email marketing tools you can use. You aren’t spamming anyone because they requested information so the likelihood it is read and therefore ends up on your site, and even better making a purchase, is much higher.

Suppose you add new products, have frequent discounts, or add new features to your site fairly often. If your customers and community want to know about your great deals, or check out the new products and features you have just released they will always have to come to your website to find this out. If you offer a newsletter you can let them know via e-mail when they subscribe so that you can keep them up to date and interested in your business, or community. You may keep your newsletter archived, unless you delete them, as well giving your customers a place to see any of your past newsletters that may have been released before they subscribe. On top of that an RSS feed can be used for those of us that like to keep up to date with new information that way.

Ex-Celtics star DJ dies at 52: Toros coach collapses in Texas

The only black guy I ever saw back then with freckles. There are a few in the league now, Tayshaun "Curios George" Prince on my Pistons for one. Part of the ugliest team in NBA history with Bird, Mchale and Parrish. That Celtics team, however played when the NBA didn't suck so much.

DJ was part of one of the biggest plays in Pistons history when they took a game away and a trip to the NBA Finals when the old: "There's a steal by Bird, he passes to DJ...." call tore the heart out of us Pistons fans while Zeke stood on the sideline and looked like someone just killed his parents.

Johnson, 52, had finished coaching the Austin (Texas) Toros of the NBA Development League in a practice and was speaking with a member of the organization on a sidewalk outside the Austin Convention Center, joking about a parking ticket, when he was stricken. Paramedics tried for 23 minutes to revive Johnson before taking him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“We were laughing,” said team spokeswoman Perri Travillion. “He just collapsed.”

Visit My Blog Buddy:

Jules is a self proclaimed tech geek, but that doesn't mean I don't think she knows her stuff. Her tech site will have quite a bit of informative information as it grows I will guarantee you that. She's a very tech oriented blogger and knows her share of SEO information as well as the helpful little plugins and extensions you can use with Firefox and Wordpress and other internet tricks.

You are going to find several useful applications on her site under the Cool Apps category. All very useful for your own little niches on the web that you like to spend your days trying to optimize. Anytime I can use the word Wii on my blog I do and she has an app that can help you find a Wii (2nd time) in her post So You Want A Cheap Nintendo Wii? . Thanks for letting me use the word Wii for the fourth time in this post.

Instant Credit Report

I've had my fair share of good and bad credit experiences. From being a nobody in the creditors eyes, to being treated like a VIP. Back before starting a business I always had a fairly easy time getting a loan, or adding extra credit limits to cards, but when my income became variable it was difficult to secure a loan based on the fact that I didn't have a verifyable history of income in the business. Even though I could get an Instant Credit Report to show that my credit score was very good, I was still forced to find myself a co-signer for most loans. It didn't help that my business partner had a bankruptcy in their history either, so most loans became my responsibility. It was a difficult learning experience and could have been much easier.

Credit Loan could have helped me with a lot of this with their Learning Center. All areas of loan and credit information including bankruptcy, bad credit loans, mortgages, credit repair, and many others. Being able to read about your situation online is quite a big deal compared to the available information I may have had even 10 years ago on the internet when I was out trying to start a business with no experience and no capital as a youngster.

Obama vs. Hillary

The gloves are off. Geffen, a former Clinton family supporter is trashing the Clintons. This sounds like it will be the more vicious battle for a nomination as Guiliani has the Republican nomination, and presidency wrapped up in my mind already. At least we will have a sideshow for this run because the president has already been chosen.

Why don't you Ask Jason about it? He seems to have answers for anything.

Here's a pretty good quote as to how vicious this has already become...

Obama's response came from his chief spokesman, Robert Gibbs.

"We aren't going to get in the middle of a disagreement between the Clintons and someone who was once one of their biggest supporters. It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when he was raising them $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln bedroom. It is also ironic that Senator Clinton lavished praise on Monday and is fully willing to accept today the support of South Carolina state Sen. Robert Ford, who said if Barack Obama were to win the nomination, he would drag down the rest of the Democratic Party because 'he's black.'"

Visit My Blog Buddy:This JUST IN!

Justin is kind of a goofball like me which I like, but he also writes very well and has good takes on things going on. This JUST IN! does a great job at showing off his personality. It is a very personal blog that shows himself in every post. All of his posts reflect him in some way, but Justin’s Guide to Easy Jeans Fading kind of gives you an idea of things he likes to discuss on his blog.

He just put a post up the other day that I just caught so I figured I would add it. The Sister Hazel Concert ROCKED is one of the most complete after concert posts I have seen around the blogsphere. Check out his experience and view the photos he has from his trip.

Millionaire Dating Site

Ha....I saw this and I had to write about it. The old Who Wants to Date a Millionaire online edition. Really I'm just trying to figure out if this is a joke. Millionaire Dating has a front page with a list of elligible bachelors and bachelorettes that are supposedly millionaires. What made me laugh instantly is that the site is Free to Join. Now I don't know about you, but if I was going to cater to millionaires I think I'd probably charge something for hooking thme up. I guess it is only the first 5000 members, so I guess they aren't giving this information away to everyone. I don't know. I guess you just have to check it out yourself and make your own judgement.

Let's swim out tonight, love

Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Poppa been smooth since days of Underroos
Never lose, never choose to, bruise crews who

You gotta know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run

8.) Describe yourself:

Regrets, I've had a few

Slow ride, take it easy...

Im hot for teacher.

14.) How do you feel right now?

Oh i, oh, Im still alive
Hey, i, i, oh, Im still alive
Hey i, oh, Im still alive

15.) Any closing words?

There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain.
All these places have their moments
Of lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I loved them all.

I am going to tag: Amy, Owen, and Lisa
