My First Impression Of The Thesis Theme

There has been so much hype over the WordPress Thesis theme that I finally decided to purchase it and try it on this blog. As you can see it’s no longer active, mainly because I like my previous theme a whole lot better. I am however running it on my Load Of Bullshit blog, after all, there’s no reason to let all that money go to waste. I wasn’t overly impressed mainly because I expected so much more from it. I expected it to be more of a ‘plug and play’ theme where all it would take is the click of a button and things would happen. Take for example the placement of a header. With the theme that I am currently using on this blog, all I had to do was point to where the header image is located, make a selection to say I wanted it to display…

Everything You Wanted To Know About Online Surveys

Image by elkit via Flickr The one thing that you will find on the Net is that a whole lot of people are looking for ways of making money, and there are just as many who would love to help them in their pursuit of fortune. The problem is that most of those wanting to help turn out to be unscrupulous characters whose only interest is to fleece them of their cash. Take for example those sites that promise that you can make a comfortable living working from home by completing surveys. Imagine making a living working from home? That would appeal to almost anybody. How many of us have seen Paid Survey sites offering the following as an incentive to join, these may vary from site to site but in general they are very similar. Need money? Want to work from home? Then sit back, and get paid for…

There was an employee who throughout his employment did an OK job and was considered by his boss to be a half decent bloke. There came a time when the employee wanted to try his hand somewhere else and he handed in his notice. His boss was sorry to see him go but thanked him nevertheless and tried to make his remaining days pleasant ones. On the final day the employee left without even saying goodbye. The boss, short a man, had to do his job only to find that he had not done it properly leaving him to clean up the mess. I tell you that the boss will only remember the mess his former employee left and will not remember all the good that he had done previously. The moral of this story is not to stuff up your good reputation by slacking off on your last day…

Just the other day I was reading a post titled 50 Social Bookmarking Sites. What Are The Top 5-10 Most Popular? The intention of the post was to get the commentators opinion on the subject, so that the author could make up his mind as to which ones to include when he installs his latest social bookmarking plugin. I was the only one that mentioned Blog Engage and I find that quite surprising. You see, there is one thing that sets Blog Engage apart from most of the other bookmarking sites. Let me quote you an important portion of the Blog Engage FAQ. Blog Engage, allows you to submit your Blog Article(s) that will be reviewed by all and will be promoted, based on popularity, to the main page. When a user submits a new Blog Article(s) it will be placed in the “upcoming blog ” area until it gains…

A Good Argument For Tough Love vs Spanking

All through the ages people from all over the world have been arguing over ways of disciplining your children. A lot of countries have actually banned spanking the child saying that this leads to psychological damage. Yet a lot of people continue to do so quoting such authorities as the Bible that says things like ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’. I used to get whacked when I was a kid and I even spanked my kids when I though it absolutely necessary, albeit with the palm of my hand. Perhaps if there was another method? Well it seems that there is as presented by one frustrated parent. Most people think it improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have one of ‘those moments.’ One that I found effective is for me to just take the child for a car…

I’ve Just Added The Tweet My Blog Plugin

I’ve been a member of Twitter for awhile now but being a pretty lazy blogger I rarely remember to let people know via Twitter that I have just updated my blog. This could be costing me thousands of page views. Hopefully the Tweet My Blog plugin will rectify this as every time I post to my blog it will send out a tweet to all my followers. For those of you who are not yet following me on Twitter you can easily do so by clicking this link, and for those bloggers who haven’t yet joined perhaps you should consider doing so as Twitter is a great way to let your followers know what you are doing. Not sure what Twitter is? Technically it is a free service that lets you send a 140-character message, commonly reffered to as a ‘tweet’, directly to everyone who have chosen to follow you…

This is a poem that I called “Why Must It be This Way?” and in writing it I tried to imagine what it must be like for an innocent girl on her first date, how she could react and hopefully how she in the end she should react. Perhaps my perspective of this is tarnished ever since I became the father of a daughter even though I do not recall ever acting in such an uncouth manner. It sort of brings to mind the Joe South classic made famous by Elvis Presley, “Walk A Mile In My Shoes”. Perhaps if we could physically do that before making rash judgments that lead to one person hurting another, the world could start to become a better place. Anyway without further ado I present to you Why Must It be This Way? When you asked me out that day I thought it too…
