It wasn't until I decided to get back into blogging and I noticed that one post I did in my attempts before to make some money via online, that it became a success. The funny thing about the Rockabye post is that not only did I not know what I was writing about, but I half assed the post. I didn't research or go find out, I just wrote something. It's kind of sad in a way but what I couldn't understand then is why is this post more popular than all my other posts?? Especially all of those I put a lot of time, hard work and damn good effort in? I didn't know and couldn't figure it out, why? I knew nothing about it. So I decided to research the topic and see exactly what it was I acted like I knew tons about. I did.
But I also felt bad because I had created a lousy post on something I didn't take time to research and kind of left it out there hanging in the air with a broken URL link and no other information to go along with it. I took the time out to try to correct it as much as possible. Within this process, started something even better, I not only fixed it to the best of my abilities but I also was able to give the people who liked the post a reason to come back via the Rockabye Deals. Also around the same time, blogger had updated there system and added a "search description" which at first made some sense but then on the same token it didn't. However I soon caught on that this was to attract readers to your site via SEO. I suck at that lol. I instead give a short summary that's long enough to still be found when someone searches for something. Now there are many ways and reasons people use SEO to their advantage and some are very successful at pulling in an audience that way. Then there are some people who use it with the full intention of doing so for their advantage but instead turn it into a disadvantage unintentionally. In this case, many bloggers who want to be heard or seen has mad many mistakes when it comes to using SEO.
I personally say it's a curse and a blessing at the same time. When you get really involved and take time out to use keywords, some of the words aren't very post friendly and if you focus on many topics like I do, or a specific topic like make up or latch-hooking or why pornography is a lucrative career, the keyword "car" isn't going to help your page and it'll be a fruitless effort to make it work. I'm just saying. It reminds me of a royal, snobbish-snooty hashtag. This site gives a good description on those who use SEO. Which is the truth, and I agree with it. However I can say it has been very helpful in my getting more people to visit my blog from all parts of the world. Thus meeting new people, and hopefully in the process having subscribers and a more popular blog....someday. However everything requires baby steps, and sometimes that's better because you can turn something you thought would be better into something even greater.

In the image below it tells you how many active blogs were in existence in 2011, well guess what?! Those numbers have gone up since then and there are more and more bloggers each day. Not everyone uses blogging as a diary or cathartic escape, not all of women who blog are mommies documenting little accomplishments made by mini-me's, and not all of us have the highest paying blog nor selling the bestest product that everyone needs in our lives. Some of us do it to connect with people, get to know more people, create a living even if the income is small, and some even blog for their job.
I know you're wondering well why did you click on a link to something you knew nothing about?? Yeah, yeah I know there's always a risk for a virus, but also I'm in the situation that I do need a job but I can't go look for one because I have so much going on with my house and getting business straightened out that I don't have ENOUGH time to work whether it's full time or part time and to tell Boss Man or Boss Lady I can't come to work because the electric or the gas company is coming to turn my utilities on or that Mr. Repair man is coming to fix my broken bathroom, leaky kitchen or Mr. Landscaper is here to trim down the jungle in my backyard is a DEFINITE no no! It's worst enough to just start a job and even more detrimental to take off more than the assigned time (if you aren't on probation) for something I knew ahead of time that needed my undivided attention.
But this job is nice, they tell me when they have a post for me to write, I do it, turn it in and then I do get paid. That's the best part, unlike many of other places I've tried, I either got paid in points or it turned out to be some bogus webinar on how to make money if I had a bank account full of millions. If you're looking for a way to make money without having to make a permanent commitment or due to limited time in your scheduling then definitely click the image above or the sourced link to learn more. In the mean time if you're unsure about the whole thing about blogging or would like to start and don't know what to talk about, About.com has a wonderful article on The Top 10 Reasons why you should start blogging. I say if you want a fresh and active mind and keep your writing and typing in check it's a great hobby to get into. Even if you post small posts or just pictures or keep it private, it's a nice learning tool and then you get to see what everyone else is doing in the blogosphere. And remember to always stand out as much as possible!

I can honestly say I've always love drawing and coloring and enjoyed the outcome of everything I colored or drew. However over the recent years I took an interest in to manga and anime artwork. I find it beautiful, colorful and unique in its own way. Was I mangaka no, am I now after going to Manga Univeristy? No. But I found something I enjoy and I think I do a pretty good job at it. But I love it so much that I want to become better at and that moment I think is when an artist knows what they're truly good at. If not, then I know I'm great at drawing stick figures and facial expressions lol.
But here are a few of my drawings, I have a few that sucks and that's ok but it's good to say oh hey I'm getting better at this too! The two pictures below I freelanced in Draw Something 2. The eye (which is one thing I love to draw) was done on my iPhone while the Princess Kida was done on my HTC phone.
Now if you're like me and basically poor, finding a job has been harder than everyone says it is and these so called get-rich-quick schemes and hustles don't seem to be doing it for you. Then any way to make a few quick bucks is a plus, just as long as you have the right mind set. Accept that you'll get a few pennies first before getting pissed off because you haven't made your first million. Like cool it hot pants, your last name isn't Trump nor are you next Microsoft genius....baby steps, baby steps.
Anyway I came across this awesome little something known as CashFly. I've seen good and bad reviews but for the most part it's really easy and makes a lot of sense actually. I can't believe there wasn't something created like this a lot sooner and made just as easy. I've come across quite a few over the last few years looking for every possible way to make a few dollars.
If you're interested definitely click the link above and if you need a real true-to-life example check out Linkstopia that's where I found the Teen Spirit movie at. I must admit I was amazed. Plus you can't knock it, especially if you aren't into webcaming and porn (or haven't gotten up the nerve to head into that direction just yet) this is a better option to consider.

Watch IT!! I think you'll enjoy it a lot (source).
Now most people who give it a simpler definition calls it an online version of a diary or journal that's shared amongst the vast internet community. However I don't think it's a good definition. I rather say it's similiar to a keeping a journal but your not only sharing information or ideas or something you know that can help those around you, but you're getting to know those you reach as well as getting to know yourself. You just happen to keep a log or in this case a "journal" of your happenings and going-ons lol.
Low and behold guess what I find!
TrendHunter about the Rabbit Travel Vibe. YES it plugs into the car outlet (they were called cigarrette lighter outlets when I was a kid lol). HA! Go figure right?! Unfortunately the link the author had for you to purchase it was a dead end. Thus I went on an adventure to search for it and found it on Amazon for $18 plus the $5 shipping fee (also found it here and found a review on it here). I'm like hot damn! But now I have to wonder, does someone actually own one of these and uses it while driving?? I would think that would be a bit dangerous--in all seriousness. Or maybe that's the way you charge it, you think?? Well here's the kicker, it's not a dildo or a traditional vibrator where you insert it in the vagina. It's more of a bullet. Imagine the Rabbit Vibrator, minus the penis part. I guess it could be fun and quite interesting especially if you're in a lone parking lot by yourself or with your hunny and wanted to get some quick action lol.
I personally love the color and love that it's a Bunny lol. I think it's a fabulous idea, even better than wooden dildos!
Tell me would any of you buy this and keep it in the glove compartment??

What I love the most about subscriptions is learning about news that I may have missed, learning something new or keeping up with some of my favorite sites. The other best thing about a subscription is that in my case since I'm a blogger, I get to connect to people on a more personal level. I don't consider any of my followers or readers just random people or one of thousands.
I took into account when I was building my own blog and having a RSS feed subscription was nice but I felt it wasn't personal enough to make my readers or future subscribers feel like I cared enough or how much I truly appreciated them for taking time out of their day to look at my site and find something that not only interested them but even gave them something that they may have been looking for, needing or that little push we all need at some point in our lives. This year in the midst of all my changes I decided that I wanted to make that more of a personal commitment and I created a newsletter. It's nothing fancy but I also know how much it's a pain to go see what's new or sit there and wait for something new or reread something you've already seen hundreds of times, right?! Thus the newsletter not only shows you the newest post but it also gives you a list of previous posts so in case whatever I talked about for the day doesn't interest you, there's a possible replacement. Then if you have a friend you'd like to share the email with you can. I made it so I can personally address everyone who signs up by their name and show them what's new. Not too many subscriptions do that, either! (if you'd like to know more about my newsletter: click here)
Unfortunately there's many of us who are baffled as to what a RSS Feed Subscription is, it's basically the same as a newsletter. Mostly the emails are sent only when there's a post, oppose to the possibility of newsletter sending something everyday or a few times per day. There are many ways to manipulate and use an RSS feed, many keep it as a back up or reference, while others use it as a slight alternative to a website without having the customer/reader go to the actual website to get what they want or looking for or even buy. Many stores have subscriptions so they can send their customers coupons, deals or offer some type of reward. While blogs and other sites offer information that their readers and subscribers may find interesting. Other do it to stay connected to their readers and even build a bigger audience.
I'll even admit and say they are quite hard to deal with when you first get introduce to them. But there are plenty of websites out there like this one that helps you along the way in the most easiest way as possible. I happen to use Feedburner in the beginning but I didn't like the whole bland look it gave whether it was emails or the actual feed itself. This year I switch to MailChimp to make it more easier to design and edit and make it more user friendly for everyone and not just myself. Both work the same way and give whoever subscribes to my blog an update (when I have a post for the day) on the new posts. It's a lot of work, but I think if you're readers and customers are satisfied then you've done a good job. Or at least I think so lol.

I can honestly say that I don't do well with directions, listening or even reading sometimes. In most cases I think people make it more difficult. Don't say wearing a school uniform is necessary because I may wear a suit one day. Or write down directions on how to fill out taxes but I need to have all these fancy named forms and even inquiring about them you get a robotic response of what you just read. That's annoying. I rather you show me what I'm suppose to do at least twice and by the third time I've got it down pat! Not saying all visualists are like that. It should be considered when it comes to learning something knew, or trying to get a point across.
Above all else that's how marketing is done, visually. How many commercials are put on TV and fancy billboards don the streets? Tons!! Because they work hard to make those things visually appeasing and eye catching so they can grab your attention without having to transmit a message that'll surely be lost. Even the sale ads are colorful and they uses key-phrases and -words to attract to you and hopefully hold your attention long enough to sale you something or even have you come into the store or even go online. They all offer things and use certain colors and shape to being attraction to themselves. No matter what the product is the advertisement is what sells it and grabs our attention. We wouldn't be buying that big screen had we not see it advertised in the Sunday newspaper or gone into the store to see it displaying this wonderful picture, right?? Honestly how many of us go into a store and want to know what the specs are and make a decision based on that alone?? Very few, I only do when it comes to computers. But I also like the way a 17 inch laptop looks over the 15 or 13 inched ones. However when I see a cute purse, I go by looks, price then if it'll serve my purpose (the more pockets and compartments the happier I am especially if its on sale).
Even in greeting other people, we approach each other visually. Even if it seems like a firm handshake and a smile. It's still a visual technique that comes before the conversation. Any emotion shown or displayed is a visual technique. However people just knock it down and act like its a given. That's so wrong.
Do you think that visual techniques should become more prominent in today's world?

I didn't barbecue and neither did the old folks, instead we did what most Americans do who are too lazy to get cooking--go to a restaurant. Which isn't a bad idea and plus least the food was very good.
Anyway, I'm not typing about the delicious, sexiness of the buffet I ate. So one of my mom's high school friends called me up Sunday night and wanted to check on me. I think everyone thinks I'm going to kill myself or something outlandish and crazy to that nature. Which I'm not, even though I have considered it, not going to say I haven't. But hell, regardless of my age and what miracles (might) come my way....my life is totally fucked up right now so yeah why look forward to a future I never wanted in the first place?? And all that mumbo jumbo about you can't predict your future is crap. Ever want to go back into the past and do something differently just to change the present?? Yeah your present self then wasn't thinking you'd be regretting the shit you did then in the future (which would be the now) HELLO! Dropped the Bunny Logic on ya! Lol. Anyway so she asked me if I had been invited out for the Holiday and I told her no and for some odd reason she found that to be appalling like almost horrifying and all horror movie like.
I'm sitting there like, why is that a problem?? So she gets all dramatic on me and says how terrible and unfortunate that is. I'm like I doubt I would be invited in the first place, and she says well you shouldn't be at that big house all alone and I told her I wasn't at the house which got her off the subject of my supposed loneliness. After I got off the phone with her, I couldn't help but think back a few weeks when one of my older cousins mentioned the same thing and how I need to start planning on who to spend the holidays with. Why would I want to do that?? My parents are both dead so why do I want to celebrate with people I don't feel ultimately comfortable with??? She said the reason was that I don't need to be sitting at home alone on holidays and how I need to interact with people and socialize because if I don't I'll sit at home and sulk and be unhappy and how unhealthy that is for "anybody" and how I need to consider all these things. I'm like I'm not celebrating shit, excuse my French. I feel I don't have to if I don't want to. Whether I sit at home alone today, tomorrow, next month or next year it doesn't matter. I personally think I shouldn't be expecting people to think of me when a holiday rolls around and I would honestly be offended because you didn't consider that when my mom first got sick or when my dad died and I don't want you doing it now that mother has died.
This whole oh Bunny's gonna kill herself we must call her constantly and invite her over so she's not lonely is really beginning to piss me off. Like I'm an only child, I had to grow up lonely for the most part. Plus I personally don't want to get dependent or attach myself to people knowing they're not always going to be there. The little conversations about spending time together is great and dandy but it's not healthy to get someone's hopes up and then not even be decent enough to offer them an apology or a proper excuse as to why you didn't or refused to show up. That's like telling a little kid you're going to take them some place fun and then never show and give then broken promise, concreted lies and terrible excuses as to why you can't without thinking about how they're feeling unloved, unhappy and not good enough in the process. That's wrong, plus I had enough of that as a kid and growing up. I'm not about to let what other people call "loneliness" get the best of me. Honestly I feel better and I'm happier by myself, but with a crowd, even the two I live with currently I feel out of place and I'm not sure how to really interact with people anymore.
Plus I'm tired of always being the one who's left. Not like a subtraction kind of thing, but the one who ends up getting left. Make a new friend, they leave. Fall in love with a guy, he leaves. Love my Parents to death and they both left me. Tired of opening up the emotional happiness store and getting no customers. I know it's wrong to think and feel that way, but I've yet to have someone actually want to stick it out with me no matter. Why build relationships when someone (or me in this case) is always going to be the one standing there watching the other person happily frolic away like they've been relieved of my burdensome existence??
Yeah no thanks.
I'll be contented with not having to have to shop for presents, or wish someone a happy holiday anymore and snuggling at home with my future crazy cat lady collection.
