If Women Controlled The Earth

I remember a time many years ago when my newly wedded wife was filling the spa for the first time. I was in another part of the house when I heard her screaming hysterically. I rushed to the bathroom to confront the following scene. My beautifully naked wife, standing in the middle of the bathroom with jets of water squirting all over the place. I couldn’t help myself as I walked past her and turned, laughing the whole time, the spa off.

I’ve heard of other stories where women who were confronted with scary situations just didn’t know how to react, there was even one where this young girl in a car with her instructor let go of the steering wheel and covered her face with her hands.

Let’s not get the wrong idea here folks. Not all women react in this fashion. There were many influential women throughout the ages,  women who had just as much balls as any man. These women included, Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Mbande Nzinga the Angolan Queen, Indira Gandhi and even Margaret Thatcher.

Yes, all these women were great in their time, but you just have to wonder what it would be like today if If Women Controlled The Earth, women who did not have to worry about how men perceived them, women who did what had to be done because it was the best thing for the planet! Well, they say that a picture paints a thousand words and so I would like to present several photos for your education entertainment. :devil_tb:

Please don't scratch the floors

And can you imagine what would happen if they got control of design in the IT Industry?

Oh, what a functional mouse

Now, we all know what would happen in the bathroom don’t we?

Make surre your aim is right fellas

Shit, we have to aim for the hole now

And last but not least, the car park!

Just follow the flashing lights

Honestly folks, whilst I made up the post these images are not of my doing. I actually got them in an email and after grinning from ear to ear I was going to delete the email when suddenly it came to me that it would make for a brilliant post. So if anyone owns these images please drop me a note and I will gladly link to your site that you get due credit.

As to my many loyal readers of the female persuasion, I hope that after reading this you cut old Sire some slack in the knowledge that I loves ya all and have the utmost respect for your abilities in whatever field your pursue.

Leveraging Everything Your Blog Has

Guest posts are a very important marketing tool. For the person doing the guest post it allows them to extend their brand or expertise to other blogs, blogs that have a different readership thereby expanding their exposure.

To the person hosting the guest post it allows them to offer a subject or topic that they may not have an enough expertise or are not comfortable writing themselves. In essence it’s a win win situation for all. I hope you like this guest post by Melvin of   MelvinBlog.com

You have probably heard that a blog is a very good asset. In fact, it’s really true. Most people are so caught up with the money they can make from a blog directly that they forgot their blog is more than just that. Just from my experience, blogging has done a lot of nice things to me like getting to conferences and being invited as a speaker, receiving free schwags from some companies, getting good deals from them, getting interviewed, joint ventures, new friends and good publicity. Overall these are obviously more than what you can make with your blog directly.

And so for today, I’m going to tackle how you can leverage what you have in your blog (audience, expertise, reputation) and make more money from that. I am going to put out a list of ways on how you can capitalize more by leveraging what you have. Without further ado, here‘s now the list:

  • Leveraging your expertise to build a consultation service – I’m not really a fan of these consulting services and to be honest I never plan to do it myself.  But obviously, it’s a very profitable business. Guys like Jim Kukral, Shawn Collins, Chris Brogan don’t really make anything from their blogs BUT make a really good amount with their consultation services. If you’re an established blogger with a good reputation, it’s good to make good use of your stature and make more money by offering a consultation services to other people
  • Leveraging your audience by offering them a product – I can‘t emphasize it more. Creating and selling your own product is by far the BEST way to make money from your blog. If you have a huge audience following you and still haven‘t considered this option, you‘re missing out a lot. By having your own info product, you don‘t just benefit by making sales. You also try to build your own expertise through those various product of yours.
  • Leveraging your audience in your blog and using it as a launch pad – Probably another unsung benefits of being a blogger is using it as a launch pad. Having a blog alone gives you a decisive advantage to just launch about everything and have a big lead against everyone simply because you already have the audience. I always consider it like a boost pad where it can simply just put you ahead in the race.
  • Leveraging your reputation for joint ventures – Since blogging is a business, getting proposals, joint ventures from other bloggers/marketers in the same niche is always a good thing. Most marketers don’t just negotiate with anyone, they often want reputed bloggers with good audience. Just look at the connection between Darren Rowse, Yaro Starak, John Chow, Shoemoney, Daniel  Scocco and other reputed bloggers. They just seem to really bounce it off each other and maximize what they have combined. Imagine the amount of traction they can get from helping out each other.

Blogging brings a lot of good things if done properly. Reputation, huge audience, fame, and many more. As we get more and more of those, make sure to make the most of them. Don’t just be contented with what you’re currently making. After all you worked your butts out real hard to have them, right? What do you think? I would love to hear your opinions.

The Difference Between Flexibility And FlexSqueeze

Over the past couple of days I’ve been getting some tweets, emails and comments on my blogs as to the difference between Flexibility and the FlexSqueeze theme. For those of you who don’t know, Flexibility is the free version of FlexSqueeze.

Anyway, I’ve been mistakenly telling everyone that it’s basically the same and that the only difference was that you could replace the codes in the footer with your own. :doh_tb:   :wallbash_tb:

How stupid am I, there’s got to be a lot more to FlexSqueeze than that otherwise why would you want to upgrade to the full version? In my defense it’s been a long time since I’ve upgraded and I’m so used to FlexSqueeze I’d forgotten what the differences were.

Some of the differences include some

major theme enhancements such as custom search box text, more flexible tag and category options, more font style choices, enhanced sub sidebar widget code, built in pagination navigation, new theme skins and much more!

There is also one other major difference, the ability to build your own squeeze pages. Personally I’m not sure that I would ever use one but it’s nice knowing it’s there in case I ever change my mind. Even so, I was wandering if I could use it’s capabilities to design a sales page for my online stores.

This is what my shopping page used to look like.

Yeah, pretty boring right? Well now let’s have a look at Sire’s new Shopping Mall. I don’t know about you but I reckon that is a remarkable improvement, and the whole thing was done in WordPress’ own HTML editor.  I haven’t even used the options available in the FlexSqueeze Theme Option Section. That would enable me to change the width, header, font color, background image, well I think you get the general idea.

While I’m still going to play around with that page when I get more time, before I leave I would like to mention one other very important feature of having your very own FlexSqueeze theme and that is it makes you money. To date it has been my number one income earner. That’s not at all surprising when you consider people can see how excited I am about the product.

So, now you all know the difference between the two themes.

Edit: FlexSqueeze has just received an update which makes it even easier and more versatile. I’ve written a post about it which you can read here.
