Sharing Something Unique About Where You Live

Hands up all those of you who haven't been affected by blogging in one way or another? I'm willing to bet that there are quite a lot of you out there who, like myself, originally took up blogging as a way of making money, or of promoting one site or another, but have now fallen in love with it. I have to admit that no matter what I'm doing blogging is lurking somewhere in the thought processes of my mind. Honestly there are even times when while making love to my wife a blog post suddenly pops into my head and it's all I can do to stop myself from climbing off of her and rushing to the computer so I can write up a new post. Shit, I know that if I do that she's going to put my balls through the wringer, honestly kids if you don't know what a wringer is you should ask your mom, but then if I don't the climax is going to blow it right out of my head. It's really a no win situation, except for the mind blowing sex part that is. :devil_tb: :thumbup_tb: Anyway, it was about 4 a.m. while at work, I'm wearing shorts and it was about 2.5C when I had this sudden light bulb moment and this post just popped into my head. I've seen a lot of memes out there and it's quite possible that someone else has already done it, but I thought it would be a…

The Validity Of Old Sayings As Per Email

Have you ever wondered how some of those old sayings ever came about, you know, things like throwing the 'baby out with the bathwater', or perhaps even being 'piss poor' or 'it's raining cats and dogs'? Well, I got this email today, and while I can't vouch for it's validity I thought you guys would perhaps find it of some interest. There is an old Hotel/Pub in Marble Arch, London which used to have gallows adjacent. Prisoners were taken to the gallows (after a fair trial of course) to be hung. The horse drawn dray, carting the prisoner was accompanied by an armed guard, who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like ''ONE LAST DRINK''. If he said YES it was referred to as “ONE FOR THE ROAD” If he declined, that prisoner was “ON THE WAGON” So there you go. More bleeding history. They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor". But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot they "Didn’t have a pot to Piss in" & were the lowest of the low. The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.…

Reviewing MyLikes As An Advertiser

While I've done a couple of posts on MyLikes as a publisher I thought I would put them through their paces as an advertiser. Out of all the blogs I own the one that has proven to be the most difficult as far as promoting it goes has always been my Top Sexual Aids blog.  The main reason for this is obviously the content of the site and while there is nothing wrong with sex as a whole people get a little funny about it when it comes to talking about ways of making it better through sexual aids. I did think about giving Google Adsense a go but when they emailed me saying they would no longer present ads on that site I thought better about giving them money to promote it. I mean how does that work, they're too high and mighty to run ads on there but it's quite OK to take my money as an advertiser? Not bloody likely. Then I remembered MyLikes and so I decided to give them a go. Setting it all up was a real snap, as you can see from the following image all that is required is a little information about your campaign. You can even set a sample tweet to give your publishers an example of what you are looking for. I left this blank as I wanted them to use their imagination. You also want to set your cost per click and your campaign budget. At first I tried  5…
