Likewise, sometimes new website owners think that they can just launch a new website and the traffic will come. They too are mistaken. Even the most popular websites on the internet had to advertise their existence if they wanted to see any real results within a reasonable amount of time. Without that advertising, they would have been waiting years for results. So, where are the best places to advertise your website?

You'll find a lot of information related to trading, and some information not related to trading. One of my favorite tidbits is his 3 Steps to Becoming a Cool Trader. The first time you read that title, you might think in terms of a guy in sunglasses and a Hawaiian shirt with his legs resting on his desk and his computer display showing all sorts of crazy charts. Well, maybe. But I like to think of cool in the other way - as in cool, calm, and collected. It's perfectly fine to be passionate about something. As a matter of fact, you really should be passionate about Forex trading if you're going to go into it. However, it's very easy to let your emotions take charge when you really need the cool part of you to be in control. Once you get the hang of it, you'll realize that Forex trading isn't all that difficult. The owner of the blog brings up Bruce Lee as a case in point. He once said, "Before I learned martial arts, a punch was just a punch, and a kick was just a kick. When I studied martial arts, a punch was no longer just a punch, and a kick was no longer just a kick. Now I understand martial arts, and a punch is just a punch, and a kick is just a kick." Get it? It's simple, but true. I think most truths in life are simple. Sign up for the free 5-day video course if you think you have what it takes to venture into the realm of Forex trading. The link is in the top right corner of the website. There's no obligation, and if you are open to it, I think you might actually learn something new.


Enjoy Your Wine <--click for more

For more information on how to better enjoy your wine experience, visit the Wine Vintage Chart website.

The vast and unfamiliar world of wine can certainly be a scary thing. It's no fun to go to a place to eat and have no idea what kind of wine to have with your meal. This is especially true if you are with another person. You may actually be judged on what kind of decision you make. It's cruel, but true.


End of Life Celebration <--click for more

Death is never a great subject to discuss with people. But just like taxes, it does happen. And it need not be all misery and woe. I believe that most people would probably like you to celebrate their lives rather than have a day full of gloom and doom. I've been to too many funerals in my life, and they have all been somber events. In some way, it might have been better had the events been more a celebration of lives lived rather than deaths that just happened. There's a company called End of Life Celebration that helps to make death a more joyous occasion. I know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, but if you think about it, wouldn't you rather remember how good or nice or great a person was rather than the fact that they just died? A quote from their website puts it nicely: "To truly embrace our loved one's life we should emphasize their journey, their love, their passions. Would our loved ones rather see us suffer through this difficult time or celebrate in the beautiful life we shared?"


Promotional Products <--click for more

Having a hard time figuring out how to promote your business? Whether you own a small mom and pop store or a nationally recognized franchise, you've got to keep your name in front of people. It takes someone several times a day of seeing something before it ever really registers. Because of this, promotional marketing products are a great way of getting your message out. Everyone loves free stuff, and if you're going to give it away, make sure it's cool and fun and has your logo all over it. Not only will people use the stuff (think of how many pens you end up with on your desk with someone else's logo on it), other people will see them using it. Got a baseball cap with your company name on it? Give it away and wear one yourself! And if you needs ideas of what to use for promotional products, I've found a great site with over 800,000 products you can use for that purpose. They offer great quality products that are perfect for tradeshow giveways, customer appreciation gifts, and even employee rewards. Have a new launch in mind? http://www.jhstudios.com/ probably have the perfect product to get it going in short order. Try the search feature in the middle of the page to find exactly what you want. I typed in mouse pads and found some great products that would be perfect to promote a new website I'm working on.


Pictures to Art <--click for more

When I was younger, so much younger than today, I had a computer class in which we all learned BASIC programming on ASR-33 teletype terminals hooked up to an HP-2000F timeshare computer that was supposed to be the size of a refrigerator, although none of us ever saw it because it was hidden away in a special building in a school district office next door to my grandmother's house. One of the things I remember was that someone had uploaded a set of pictures to the system, and you could print them if you liked. These were not your usual pictures, though. One of those pictures was very risque at the time, as it showed an almost nude woman in a pin-up type pose. You really couldn't make much out since all of the bits were made up of letters and numbers, but it didn't stop the kids in my programming class from wasting rolls of paper making prints to take home or stick in their lockers. This was the day of the ASCII printer, graphics need not apply. So, if you wanted to print a picture that had graphic elements in it, your only choice was to represent each "pixel" of the picture with an ASCII character, such as a number or letter of the alphabet. At best, you wouldn't be able to recognize the picture unless you stood far enough away for it to start looking like something, sort of like a billboard, where if you got close enough, all you saw were blotches of color but nothing that looked like a photograph. Anyway, I just discovered a cool site where you can convert your graphics to pictures made from text. It's called Pictures to Art, and I like it a lot. If you are looking for a great Valentine's gift or birthday present, and your very special person is into the retro, you've got it made in the shade. Check it out. You'll be glad you did.


Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water... <--click for more

If you are a college student, your drawers are probably stuffed with t-shirts. I certainly had my share when I was a student. I still do. And I'm always looking for cool ones to add to my collection. Which is why I can't say enough good things about Mr Tees. Who else offers free shipping within the US? Who else gives you over 500 designs to choose from? And who else gives you things like hoodies, long sleeved shirts, baby dolls, and onesies? If you are looking for the cool offensive t-shirts, they've got them. If you want really offensive t-shirts, the ones that you might actually be afraid to wear, they've got them as well. And if you are in the mind for humor, they've also got funny offensive t-shirts. Of course, we all know you want to make a statement, so try on one of their rude offensive t-shirts. If you don't get people rolling their eyes at you or being rude back, then you're obviously not wearing a t-shirt from Mr Tees.


Download Free Mp3 Ringtones <--click for more

I've had a default ringtone on my cell phone for a very long time. The other day, I was at the mall and could have sworn I heard my phone ring, so I checked it out, and there were no calls. Hmm. Then, I heard the ring again, and then saw it was the person at the table in the food court next to me. He had the same ringtone. No wonder, as it was that blasted default t-mobile ringtone. I thought to myself, I really have to get a custom ringtone. Then I found a place where you can download free mp3 ringtones. Sign up for a free account, and you can download as many new ringtones as you want. How cool is that?


11 Forgotten Laws <--click for more

I first encountered The Secret a few years back when one of my friends emailed me a link to a youtube movie. It was interesting, and it seemed to say that you are able to use the laws of attraction to your full benefit. I've looked around a bit more since then, and there seems to be many different offshoots from the original movie that was presented, and the people who were involved in that production are still going strong, either with things associated with The Secret, or their own things. Bob Proctor is one of those people who was involved at the very beginning, and he has a very interesting program that helps you to make the laws of attraction work. It's called the 11 Forgotten Laws, and according to reviews, it really does help to fast track the process. Check it out.


Sunday 23 January 2011 - Rolex Watches <--click for more

rolex watches

I still want a Rolex watch. I haven't gotten one yet, but if you'd like to get me one, I know the perfect place. There is a great selection of Rolex watches at Stein Diamonds. My favorite is the Submariner. I once called a jewelry store and asked them if they had one in stock. I really wanted it. Unfortunately, they did have it in stock, so I had to tell them that I was really just "window" shopping and wasn't ready to commit to a purchase. But, if about $8K all of a sudden hit my lap, wouldn't it be fun to get one!


Happy Tails <--click for more

Like pets? Like cool videos about pets? You'll love Happy Tails. It's basically an episodic show featuring cute pets, and some of them are actually available for adoption from the Vancouver, BC SPCA. In our house, we have a bunny, a cat, and two birds, so we know something about having pets. The link here is for episode 7 and shows some really cute pets, including a bunny that looks a lot like the one we have. Remember that pets are a big responsibility, so know what you are taking on if you decide to get a pet.

And The Verdict Is... <--click for more

OK, I know this is going to sound anti-climactic, but there was no agreement on what shirt to get, so I had to take matters into my own hands and make the decision myself, regardless of who wanted what. I felt it was the only fair thing to do. I could have chosen offensive t shirts or maybe funny offensive t shirts, but I didn't know if I wanted to do that. I could have also gone with rude offensive t shirts as there were a few votes in that area. For a moment I was quite lost. Then I realized that the whole point of getting t-shirts was to commemorate our trip across country, and I thought to myself, there's a perfect t-shirt that can do that... I decided on Proud To Be Another Misinformed American. It was our perfect chance to wear rude and offensive t shirts. And the vote on my decision was unanimous. Everyone hated it! But since I had final say, it really didn't matter. Of course, I might now be taking the trip across country by myself...

I've really had it. I think I'm done with trying to come up with my own design. I think I'm just going to tell everyone to vote on pre-made cool t shirts from MrTees. No one can come up with a suitable idea, and I'm in a brain fog, so I'm not even going to try anymore. Mr Tees has funny cool t shirts and there should be enough of a selection for everyone to agree on something. Us men in the group can vote for mens cool t shirts and the rest can choose from the cheap cool t shirts. Whatever everyone decides, it's going to cost me less than $20 per person and we'll be done. The voting starts tonight, and I should have a decision by morning...


Facial Hair Removal for Women <--click for more

The T-shirt saga <--click for more

Little did I know that this t-shirt thing was going to be a soap opera. I now have opinions from family members and non family members on what the t-shirts should say. What I'm trying to do is figure out a theme for our road trip, and the t-shirt is supposed to reflect this, but the ideas are confusing me to no end. To recap, I'm looking to get screen printed t-shirts for a planned road trip this summer. Some family members are requesting baseball caps instead, but I am insisting on doing the screen printed tee shirts because you can fit a lot more on a t-shirt than on a baseball cap. And some of the slogans that have been bounced around are way too long to make it on a baseball cap. I'm still looking to get the work done by this online company that specializes in screen printing tee shirts, but I hope that I can get everything clear and manage to get an order to them soon. I want these screen print t-shirts done before summer arrives, so I think I may take the design into my own hands.

I'm in the mood for a road trip. Actually, it's no surprise, as I'm always in the mood for a road trip. But this time, I really want to plan one for this summer. And for a road trip, you need a theme. And if you have a theme, you need a t-shirt. So, I've been looking at places that do t-shirt printing to see what it would take to get a set of t-shirts. If you are looking for cheap t-shirt printing, then you'll have a hard time finding a better deal than Screen Printed T-Shirt Designs. There are a lot of t-shirt printing companies out there, either available on the Internet or locally. I know I've got several companies that do t-shirt printing near me, but they aren't all that cheap. This online company offers the lowest prices around and go out of their way to compare prices frequently to make sure they give you the best deal. And, they offer free shipping within the U.S. All I have to do now is come up with a great design. We'll be going across country, from California to the eastern seaboard, so my design should probably have something to do with that. Still thinking...

I seriously want to do the Appalachian Trail. I know it takes months and most people don't end up finishing it, but before I die, I want to be able to say that I've done it.

Listia <--click for more

I just discovered a great new site where you can gives your unwanted items away and acquire other people's unwanted items for free. It's really cool. The site is called Listia and it works like this: Say you have something of value that you no longer want. You list it and others bid on it using a credit system. You get credits when you sign up with Listia and when you refer others to Listia. When the auction ends, the highest bidder wins. The buyer gets the item, and the seller gets more credits to use on something else on Listia. It's a cool idea, and I really think it will catch on.
