It’s Time For A Little Link Luv


Every now and again I like to write a post where I link to blogs that I like. To be a little different I thought this time I would link to some new blogs that I’ve come across. Some of these may be relatively new and could do with a little extra help to get some extra readership and others piqued my interest so much that I wanted to share them with my valued readers.

As bloggers we must learn that blogging is about sharing and helping others. We share by writing down our thoughts and we help others by answering their questions, providing thoughtful and helpful articles and also by linking to their blogs.

The Personal Cook Files

Grace is the blogger behind this blog that tantalizes your taste buds. It’s probably a good idea to read her about page to get an idea of how the blog came about, I particularly liked the following line which sums it all up “This is a story of a marriage forged in food.”

The first post I happened to stumble on was Easy Pork Recipes: Spicy Sisig Recipe and I must say the photo of the meal really wet my taste buds, but the recipe did have a particular ingredient that would put me off from ordering it in a restaurant. A shame really how the knowledge of something can prevent you from savoring all that life has to offer. Sometimes you wonder if it’s just better not knowing. :innocent1_tb:

Morpho Designs

This blog belongs to Mitchell Allen and while I’ve seen his name on several of the blogs I’ve visited I don’t think that I’ve ever checked him out until he left a quality comment on one of my posts, so you see people, it does pay to leave good quality comments when you go blog hopping.

Thanks to commentluv the post I landed on was his Review Of Max Your Holiday Profits, an eBook written by Barbara Ling who I’m sure many of you are familiar with. Mitch, not to be confused with Mitch from I’m Just Sharing gave a concise review of the product with a very special offer to anyone who purchases it via his affiliate link.

New Biz Blogger

I don’t know what it is but for some reason I keep landing on blogs owned by pretty women. I’m sure it’s not my fault and it’s simply because there are more women bloggers than there are men. That may not be true but that’s my only excuse. :innocent1_tb:

Michelle Welch is a woman of many talents, her latest being that of a blogger. I stumbled onto Michelle via a Tweet sent to me by Kimberly of Just Ask Kim, another very good blogger. The tweet led me to a particular post, Care To Be Featured In An Ebook! This Ebook could be a marketing bonanza for all involved. She is taking submissions from bloggers to be included in the Ebook up until the 13th of Dec. so you still have a couple of days as of the writing of this post to be involved. Sorry this post is a little late but then all the more reason not to procrastinate and to act NOW.


This is basically a Technology blog but it is also infused with a lot of other useful information. One of his posts so captivated me that I immediately installed another plugin. Those who know me know that I tend to have too many plugins and so this had to be extra special for me to have installed yet another plugin.

The post I’m talking about is Display Next Post In New York Time Style, and you will see it kick into action as you scroll down near to the end of the post. Yep, it’s that ‘fly-out box’ that you see popping out from the right. It highlights the next post in the same category of the post you are currently reading. The whole idea being that it improves your bounce rate, and according to Tuan, the blog’s author, has worked for his blog.

Phew, that was a long blog post, especially for me. :tongue_rolleye_ee: I hope you guys visit those other blogs and tell them that Sire sent you so that I can get in good with the ladies :smile2_ee:, yeah, yeah, the guys too. :thumbup_tb:

Oh, in case you’re wondering how I did all those fancy colored blocks you can read all about it here.

Be Creative, Be Innovative, Be Positive When Blogging


Do you guys remember that post I did a little while back about creating headlines that have some sort of emotional impact on your readers? No! Well that’s probably because you haven’t subscribed to my blog yet! You really should do something about that you know, otherwise you’ll never know what important interesting little bit of information you’ll miss out on.

Strangely enough, I got this email today which actually portrays how important the wording on a title can be. It’s also a pretty inspiring message and I want to share it with you.

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.

That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling…
And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

If you appreciate this message, please share.
You may touch someone’s heart today and forever.

You know, as bloggers I reckon we can find something a little extra in that story.

Procrastination And How It Can Cost You Money


If you were to look procrastination up on, the first meaning is to defer action; delay: procrastinate until an opportunity is lost. This post is all about lost opportunities and how it can cost you money.

I know all about being ripped off, that’s why I started up my BS blog, to warn people about all the scams that are out there. I personally think that way too many people are overly cautious about being ripped off and that causes them to miss out on many opportunities. Opportunities that could be making them some extra income. I know this is true, and I’m sure many of you will agree with me, because there are so few readers who are willing to click on a link these days.

Personally, I will try anything, especially if it’s free. After all, what could it cost me except a little time. Once I’ve tried a product or a service I will then write a post telling others of my experience. In essence I’m doing all the leg work so that my readers don’t have to. If the trial is a good one I’ll say so and if the reverse is true then I’ll tell them that as well. I won’t give a positive review of a crappy product because it would ruin my credibility and as I stated in the post about why the Three Things Probloggers Have That We Don’t, credibility is a very important factor.

So, I have to ask myself, why aren’t people clicking on those links?

  • My credibility still sucks
  • It’s all too hard, because they’ve been clicking that mouse all day and one more is just too much bloody effort.
  • They’re scared that they’ll get sucked in to some scam or something
  • Not enough time to check it out, but they promise themselves they will come back later.
  • A fear of failure because it all seems too hard

Well, I sure do hope it’s not because my credibility sucks, because I’ve tried so hard to build it up over the years. There’s no reason of being scared, probably the number one reason for procrastination,  because I’m the one that’s put myself in harm’s way so that you don’t have to. If I can survive an experience then you will too, and if I’ve made money from it then there is every chance that you will too.

The not enough time aspect could also be a major cause, especially these days when everyone is so busy. So many people leave things for another day and then never get back to it. Once again, lost opportunities and if you think that lost opportunities aren’t costing you money, well let me tel you, you’re kidding yourself.

There’s also no need to be worried about being scared of taking something new on. That’s how we learn, and if it’s free why not give it a shot.

OK, I think this is a perfect opportunity for a poll

What Stops You From Clicking On A Link

In summary I would just like to say that clicking on a link won’t kill you, especially if it’s from a trustworthy site, and the failure of doing so could actually stop you from increasing your income, either directly, joining a new adsense alternative like Chango or indirectly from the use of software like Market Samurai.
