Monetizing Thru Surveys and Blogsvertise

It took my interest to join the craze of monetizing my blog. (The thought has been lagging for sometime now.) I know some bloggers do not go for this kind of activity but it’s my blog anyway. It is kinda exciting to earn thru blogging when all you have to do is to participate and link away.

Feminism

I can only advocate some of the concerns of feminists. Some of them are:

  • a woman’s right of contract or property
  • a woman’s right to bodily integrity and autonomy (except abortion)
  • protection from domestic violence (‘a woman should be loved and not be treated like a punching bag‘)
  • protection against sexual harassment and rape (one of the biggest crimes that traumatize women and girls alike)
  • protection for workplace rights and equal pay (inequalities and discriminations still abound in some workplaces)

You can see my (and others) answers when you click the banner above. By clicking, you can also decide to join and participate in the survey. It’s as easy as that. 🙂

Blogsvertise

A post from techie girl’s moneymakers page about Blogsvertise is a very clear narrative about how the process works. It explains how to obtain a great opportunity and earn extra cash. And since some of the several options are still experimental, one can try the blog entries option where you write about the topic assigned to you in two (2) to three (3) paragraphs with three (3) text links to the advertiser’s page in your post.

My membership in Blogsvertise is yet to be approved. Of course I would want that my blog be approved. It would be another interesting dimension in blogging to earn extra cash, and to assist in the promotion of ads in one way or another. But it would be more interesting still to blog about topics of interest and I hope Blogsvertise would assign tasks that I could blog about with enthusiasm and curiosity. What could be more engaging than to blog about things that one loves to blog about. 😀 So, here’s a toast to my new endeavor. Cheers!

Pierce me!

I am just curious. Are you ok with body piercing? I find it sometimes cute to see others with body piercings but I will not subject myself to such a fad. I don’t even think it is fashionable.

One time while I was eating lunch at our favorite canteen, I saw a tongue piercing while R* was talking. I wondered if it made eating difficult for him. So far, I had observed it didn’t affect his speech.

I have to say it adds something to a person’s persona. It made me infer that this guy probably has a rebellious nature, or has a different taste in fashion. Perhaps it is also a statement.

Living Life to Its Fullest

Something came to mind after the news about the death of Papsie’s cousin reached me. He was only almost 41. Very young age for me to die. And I thought I have not yet lived life to the fullest. But did he?

Papsie’s cousin A* seemed to have lived his life to the fullest according to his perception. He had not been a responsible parent and left the responsibility to his wife rearing their only child. He cannot do what a parent should do – love, provide and support. Self-satisfaction is a priority to him. He cannot live without the indulgence of vices – women, gambling and liquor.

He had a number of women, all seemed to have borne his character. It was always a puzzle how they have learned to love and bear with him. He frequented casinos, and indulged himself to mah jong and drinking liquor until the wee hours of the morning. He would then pester his friends and cousins about his fare when nothing’s left. He did not care about what the people around him would say. He would insist on getting what he wanted.

A* seemed very nice when sober. The façade can fool people who do not know him. Perhaps this is the reason why there are people who befriended him and went with him, and even considered him a friend. After some time, when they serve no purpose, they will instantly be shut down from him; and he would then pop up again when nothing’s left of his resources. It seemed to me that life is just as simple as that to him. All the show of self-pity and melancholy was just his way of winning people and getting what he wanted.

Maybe it was his idea of living life to the fullest. It was the thought that to live life to its fullest is to satisfy one’s self to the fullest. It’s just a maybe. I maybe mistaken. But the thought of living only for thine self is an aversion. It is pure selfishness.

Living life to the fullest is always equated with the material things one acquires but it is more than the acquisition that really matters. It is the satisfaction that one gets from being able to acquire with one’s own effort and abilities that really matters. It is the fulfillment that one was able to surpass the hits and bumps before getting to the goal. It is earning the reward after an effort. It is winning the hearts of many with their sincere smiles and warm hugs until death comes.

Discoveries – Part Two

CAPTURING A DESKTOP

When I visited Major Tom’s site, I was surprised to see that he tagged me with this tag of capturing my desktop. (Thank you, Major Tom!) We had this one when I read the tag. Actually, the whole process is an interesting discovery for me.

a free view of my desktop

Here is the procedure:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

You can do a screen capture by:

  1. Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).
  2. Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).
  3. If you wish, you can edit the image, before saving it.

For MAC users: Press [ Apple] [ Ctrl ] [ Shift ] and [ 3 ]

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

????????????????????

The picture was taken during one of our jogging sessions at UP every Sunday. Sadly, we were not able to continue that bonding activity because of the many constraints. I still hope though that we can be able to continue. The artist in Kay took a snapshot of the taho containers. It was a very nice picture that always reminds us of the fun we had, and eating taho after each jogging session or after playing badminton.

We did not put many icons on the desk top. We choose to have minimal amount of items so that it will look neat and clean. Unlike before where there are a lot of icons on the desk top, we find it more appealing now that the desktop is not overcrowded.

I’d like to find out how their desktops look like: Go Abaniko, Wil, Malaya, Karmi and Khonz!

GREGORY HOUSE

Hugh Laurie is one of those actors with that appeal. He cannot be one of the many very good-looking guys in an American series but he has this appeal that is so enigmatic and magnetic at the same time (must be the eyes 😀 ). And about the series House, Wikipedia has this to say:

Dr. Gregory House, M.D., is a fictional character and protagonist of the Foxmedical drama House. He is a maverick medical genius who heads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. House’s character has been described as a “misanthrope” and a “curmudgeon“, the latter of which was named one of the top television words of the year in honour of the character.[4][5] On the series, the character’s unorthodox diagnostic approaches, radical therapeutic motives, and stalwart rationality has resulted in much conflict between himself and his colleagues.[6] House is also often portrayed as lacking empathy and sympathy for his patients, a practice that allots him the time to solve pathological enigmas.

The character is partly inspired by Sherlock Holmes.[7][8] For his portrayal of Gregory House, Hugh Laurie has won Best Actor in a Television Drama SeriesGolden Globe in 2006 and 2007, and Best Actor from Drama SeriesScreen Actors Guild Awards.[9]

We (daughter Kay, son Daryl and I) are addicted with the series. Kay bought a DVD copy of the series, and it’s definitely a must-have. 🙂
