Wednesday, November 28, 2007 - The Latest People Search Engine

I found Spock quite by accident , that is to say I stumbled upon it. For anyone that has not heard of before,it is not the latest Star Trek related web site. It is a people search engine. Spock is easy to use and overall a fun interesting concept. Like any other search bar, you simply have to type in the desired name you wish to search for and click on search. Spock will then show you any web sites, social networks, pictures, or blogs that it finds associated with the name you entered. When I was testing it I did not know what to type in at first so I simply went for a search on Jessica Alba, what I got for my time was no less than ten additional links pertaining to my search and forty pictures. This was getting to be fun.

Spock is not designed solely for the well known public figures though. Anyone over the age of 13 can sign up for a free membership. Another great thing about Spock is that users can search for a persons name or just search a 'tag' word. The tags can be added by the person or by other Spock members. Members are allowed to voice opinions and have some control over pictures and tags associated with a person through a voting system that Spock has implemented. Although it is not technically classified as a social network, it does also have a messaging system implemented as well and as a blogger I do see potential for using Spock as a networking tool just as many people would Facebook. I myself had much fun just doing random searches using tags and I am going to list a few of them below. I am sure everyone here can come up with some rather interesting ones as well and I would love to hear about any really good ones you find. - shows people arrested for drunk driving - shows people who are scientologist's

I feel confident that will be a huge success in the future and I urge everyone to stop in, join and search, whether you are searching for a particular person or for random tags to see what comes up, I believe you will be as impressed as I was.

Is Better Credit In Your Future?

At some time or another we all face the task of having a random ,often unseen,person pull our credit report in order to see if we qualify for something, whether it is a new car, a new home, or even a job. For some this can be a scary event. That is why it is imperative that everyone learn as much about credit and how it affects you in your day to day dealings with life. The Better Credit Blog talks of mistakes the admin has made and offers tips for readers on how to avoid making the same mistakes. I found it to be a very well written blog that can be useful to almost anyone. As humans we are prone to make mistakes, it is only through these mistakes that we learn so why not read this blog and try to learn from someone else's mistakes, thus allowing yourself an upper hand the next time you have to apply for credit?

The Road to Riches - 25 Rules to Enhance Your Journey

Everything Finance is a wonderful blog offering some really great financial advice. I just came across these 25 Rules that could aid anyone on the road to riches. I myself tend to view every financial decision made as just a habit. Good financial habits can lead to riches and bad financial habits lead to bankruptcy. Nobody can make decisions for you but I do believe that if you really want to seek financial freedom, you should at least check out what others are doing to get there and implement any of their ideas that work into your own life. Remember, as long as you pay yourself first, you will never be broke.

Attract More RSS Subscribers

We all want readers and RSS subscriptions make it easy but how do we get someone to make the step to subscribe? Sometimes it is not the things we do, it is the things we don't do such as keeping our blog reader friendly. Using a good font helps but sometimes blog clutter still makes our blogs look more like a child's finger painting that a Picasso. Skelliewag offers some really great Tips to Unclutter Your Blog. Readers that are trying to grow a larger audience should read them before they add that next widget or pop-up.

Monetization Mistakes

Have you ever landed on a blog that was more ads than blog? This very issue was discussed on in the post titled How NOT to monetize Your Blog. It offers readers a few suggestions as to when they are carrying their attempts to make a little extra cash too far and chasing potential return traffic away. It is an interesting read and brings some very valid points to the table. If you haven't already done so, I would suggest reading it to see if you are guilty of over monetizing. This and more great posts can be found at

I Speak English - part 2

I just read the last comment left and I feel really bad having to reiterrate what I just posted a few days ago...I SPEAK ENGLISH! The only thing worse than the whole comment being in something other than English was that the commentor (provedorcrescenet) decided to spam his link more than a half dozen times disguised as anchor text. This does not amuse me nor will it help his rankings as I will be deleting the comment. I'm not sure what was even said but I believe he was talking bad about my momma. Once again I will ask that comments be in English, if I am asked to review a site, please insure that it is in English as well. I'm not trying to be an ass, I just really do not have time to learn a new language or search for online translators so to the non-English speakers out there I am sorry but it sux to be you.

Check Into Cash

At getting a payday loan could not have been made any easier. There is never a need to face the uncertainties a credit check can bring and the process can even be performed online. In order to receive a cash advance, an interested party must simply write a check including a small fee for the loan and then on payday they have the option of going back and picking the check up in person rather than having it sent to their bank for processing thus insuring their ability to keep private business private. All that is required is a photo I.D, proof of income and a current bank statement and with over one thousand two hundred and fifty centers nationwide,there is bound to be one near you. This form of getting a short term loan is very useful in case of emergencies such as unexpected travel plans, car difficulties, or whatever problems may arise in your day to day life. If you choose to take care of this online, thats o.k. too and Cash Advance can have funds deposited into your account the next business day and should you change your mind about getting the loan, you have until close of that business day to rescind the payday loan. In todays world where the unexpected can have you developing a migraine headache in no time, it is nice to have this as an option to alleviate some of your worries.

Six Steps To Blogging Success

I was just over at Make$ Money$ reading about the easy six steps to blogging success and I just had to come here and post about it. This blog is well written and contains some very useful information . It may not be what we as bloggers want to hear but it is probably as close to the truth as it comes when it concerns blogging for money. Before you go quitting your day job, head on over and check it out.

Blog Reviews

First I would like to say Thank You to My Radical Blogs for providing me with a blog review. I felt strange at first requesting it but I also knew that it would never be fair for me to review my own blog, not because I would not be truthful, but because I would have been so much harder on my site than the review I was given. I found this reviewer to be completely honest and I must say that I respect that. So once again, Thanks.

Now on to my review of My Radical Blogs. Like me, reviews are given freely for those requesting them so I appreciate the many hours of reading blogs and the lack of recognition a reviewer can be subjected to after working hard to insure the blogosphere is informed of the new blogs out there.

I found the site layout to be very nice and easy to navigate . There were no hover over ads to distract the reader as there are on this site and that was a definite plus. After viewing the layout, I will most likely be removing those ads here as well in an attempt to emulate the professionalism I found at this site. It may seem strange for a blog reviewer to recommend another blog review site, however I do not view this review site as competition but rather as a peer that deserves recognition for a very well thought out blog and some very good posts.

It is with all sincerity that I recommend anyone seeking an honest blog review to check out My Radical Blogs.

Angel Investor Funding For Your Start-Up Business

I myself am a business owner. I can tell you from first hand experience how hard it was for me when I first started out. I boot strapped everything, often robbing Peter to pay Paul. Since the early days of making mistakes, and boy did I make some, I have gained a nice client base and business is going very well. Next Year I should be able to double if not triple my profits which in this, the first year alone, has made me more money than any job I have ever worked. Now I find a site dedicated to helping Start-Ups find funding for their dreams and has many posts that deal directly with issues that are faced by almost every Start-Up Company. This site is the Angel Investors Network and I personally feel that if I had discovered it prior to starting my own company I could have made twice as much money this year. If you are in any way contemplating starting your own business, whether it be internet based or something more tangible such as a service related industry, I urge you to spend the time to check them out.

I Speak English

I was recently asked to review a blog by a member of blog catalog and upon arriving at it, well I could not read a word. I'm not even sure exactly what language that is and while I am sure it may be a very nice blog. I can not and will not be able to recommend a blog to my readers if I can not read it. I speak English and English alone. I understand that many bloggers in many countries speak more than one language however I am not one of them and in the future, I would like to ask anyone that has a blog posted in another language (other than English) to refrain from even asking for a review as it will not be given.

Create Your Own Social Network

As bloggers we have all known the time that we put in at the social networks can directly affect our traffic. Whether it is FaceBook or MySpace, we all work hard to get our posts seen by as many people as possible. When I was visiting over at Noheat today I came across a post that tells of Ning, a site which allows you to Make Your Own MySpace like social networking site. I find this concept worth looking into further so I really appreciate the information provided by Noheat. Upon further trolling of this blog, I found one useful article after another. They are also giving away $20 in a comment contest, so if you're interested in making some cash, head on over and check them out...oh, and remember to leave them a comment for your chance to win the money. Back Agents Providing Huge Savings

At some time or another in our lives, we all dream of home ownership and whether you are on the buying end or the selling end of the transaction, it can get a little scary. How do you, as a buyer or seller know you are getting the best deal possible. How can you be sure that you are not over paying or selling for less than your home is worth. I have discovered an amazing site that is designed to help you save up to twenty thousand dollars on your next transaction no matter if you are the buyer or the seller. It is We all like to save money and think of all the great things that extra twenty thousand dollars could be used for. You could take a vacation, remodel your newly purchased home, buy new furniture, buy a car, or just bank it. Whatever you decide to use the money for is your business ,now don't you owe it to yourself to stop in and check out That is not the only incentive being offered at the site either. Check out how you can receive 3 months free gas and more from New auto dealers or how you can get 15-50% back off any project from Home Contractors. I wish I had know about this site myself prior to purchasing my home but since I didn't I figured I could at least pass on some great information to those of you that may be in the market for buying or selling your home.

It's MoneyTime

I almost didn't know what to think of this next blog, MoneyMoose is a mixture of comedy and some smart money tips. It's stories range from Loan Sharks to a post about a company that will offer to offset the damage we do to our earth for a small donation. It is a very interesting read with the MoneyMoose spin added to the end for comedic relief. All in all, MoneyMoose is a nice blog. I would suggest reading it for the frugal living tips it offers. You are sure to find these all useful information, I know I did.

Best of the Web

I was asked to review this next site and was pleasantly surprised with what I found awaiting me. WEB MASH is a blog about blogs. The site owner not only gives you links to some very interesting blogs , you are also provided with a screen shot of the blog so you can actually see what it is before deciding to click your way on over. With a complete array of various topics the blogs posted can fall into, it pretty much has something for everyone. I would like to thank WEB MASH as well for posting ProBlogReviews and I will do that by adding WEBMASH to my blogroll. I would like to add that although I have not been blogging for a million years like some other bloggers out, this is the first time I have seen a blog about blogs such as this. I like it's uniqueness and wish it every success.

So You Want To Make Money Online

We have all seen countless sites promising us that by simply buying an Ebook from them, we can earn more money in a month than we could working all year in our dead end job. While money can be made online and several people are doing it , the majority of us will only dream of the day we can work from home. I myself use affiliate marketing, ads, and online surveys to bring in a little extra cash. All in all, I would say the surveys I do actually work best for me. Still in my quest to learn more, I have come across Lessons In Marketing and I have to say I was impressed. The advice posted on the site seems good and it isn't promising readers the world overnight. I would recommend anyone wanting to earn money online read this blog and set realistic goals. If anyone out there is really making thousands a day online, they would not share that information in an Ebook.

Payday Loans

For this post, instead of reviewing a blog, I will be reviewing a service that is available to almost anyone with a job. It is Payday loans. A Payday loan is a short term loan taken out to tide someone over until their next check comes. It can be very helpful to anyone that finds themselves in a bind due to an accident, an unplanned bill, a health problem, vehicle problems and the such. These loans can be for as low as one hundred dollars or as high as fifteen hundred, there is no credit check involved and a person requesting a Payday Loan will generally have their answer in anyplace from a few seconds to a few minutes. Visiting can be just what the doctor ordered if you find your self in need of some quick cash. Payday Loans can really help you to turn a bad situation around to not even being an issue. Perhaps you, the reader don't immediately need a loan, I would however suggest bookmarking this Payday Loans for the future, you never know when life may take an unexpected bad turn and your needs may change. For that matter do your friends and family a favor and email them the link so that they too can be prepared for the worst. I will now resume my postings of free blog reviews for interested bloggers.

Sexy Blogs and Naked Ladies

Let's face it , SEX SELLS. With that said, I bring you the wonderful world of Sexy Blog Reviews and if you are under 21 please skip clicking on the supplied link. This site seeks out the sexiest of all blogs and writes reviews on them, often conducting interviews with the site owner and some of these can get pretty intense. Blogs are rated between 0 and 5 orgasms. Some adult content in the form of ads as well as pics and story line is present so once again I will caution my readers under 21 to not click the supplied link . As an adult and a male, I find this site very entertaining, all of us guys love Porn and although not hardcore, this is far from G Rated material leaning more towards the G Spot.

Social Bookmarking

Thanks to EnTech, I have just learned of a site named which allows me to submit my posts to 32 Social Bookmarking sites at one time. Just submit the normal information such as url like normal and then type a Captcha for each site you choose to submit to. EnTech also has a pretty unique eye chart for those wanting to test their eyesight. I will be returning to this site to see what other great finds await me there in the future.

Product Sourcing ABC's

For all the people that are interested in finding a wholesaler to provide drop shipping for their growing Ecommerce site, I have found Product Sourcing ABC's. It is a very informative site dealing with all the information you will need from tips on places to find a true wholesaler to the questions you should ask a wholesaler before setting up an account. This site is a wealth of good information that anyone doing Ecommerce today should read. Knowledge is power so before you rush out and send your money to just any run of the mill middleman posing as a wholesaler, I urge you to check out Product Sourcing ABC's.

Thirty Day Challenge

I know many of you have heard of the Thirty Day Challenge but for those that haven't I will explain what I know about it. It is designed to teach the beginner how to set up a niche targeted site and learn to make money from it in under thirty days. The ultimate goal of the challenge is to earn at least ten dollars from your site within the first month. It teaches those with the willingness to learn, how to use tools such as WordTracker to help identify lucrative niches and sites such as FaceBook and StumbleUpon to network. After all, getting traffic to your site is half the battle. I plan on spending a little more time researching The Thirty Day Challenge but all in all it sounds like a very good way to learn to make money online. I would love to hear comments from any readers that have taken the challenge and succeeded at making money online.

Sexy Women In Bikinis

I just came across Bikini World and I have to say that I fell in love with this blog. I will warn readers that it contains some adult pictures of some very sexy women in various states of undress but being the red blooded American male that I am, that is what caught my attention. I was in awe at the beauty of these women. I know my female readers will now think of me as just another pig but I owed it to the male readers to review this blog, as a matter of fact, screw my review, if your male, go check out Bikini World now. You won't need me to tell you how awesome it is.

Success Vs Failure

After reading this next blog, Bloggers, I realized that failure is a necessary evil. Failure lets us know when we have succeeded . Some of the Richest and most influential people in our history started their careers as failures only to bounce back and prove everyone wrong. These people range from Bill Gates to Michael Jordan to Abraham Lincoln. I found this blog to be interesting and a must read for anyone that has ever tried and failed. Someone once said that it doesn't matter that you get knocked down, the only thing that matters is how fast you get back up. I would have to agree and if failing helps me to become better at what I do until I am someday recognized as easily as these famous failures I say "bring it on" to life. I will take my hits and rise every time. I may never get known for blogging but I will get known for something, of that I am sure. Anyone with a never surrender attitude will enjoy reading about the 16 Most Inspiring Famous Failures, I know I did.

There are many places to download your torrents from but this next site, Web of Knowledge, is dedicated to providing you the reader with what could very well be one of the most complete list of links ever comprised of torrent sites. I have book marked it and I plan to check out as many of these torrent sites as possible as soon as possible. I already heard of many of the sites but most of the links are new to me. I would grow another hand just so I could give this blog a third thumbs up.

Freeware for Almost Anything You Need Done

Over at freeware genius, you can find almost any application for anything you need to do on your computer and the best part is , everything listed (with the exception of Windows) is freeware. Think of the money that you can save by using programs like Open Office instead of MS Office or AVG as your anti-virus program instead of Nortons. This site has links for all of the freeware downloads they recommend as well as pics of the applications and very nice descriptions of what the program is designed to do and what paid for program it replaces. I have added them to my bookmarks and recommend anyone wishing to reinstall Windows and outfit their system with all freeware programs to give them a visit as well.

John Cow Ripped Off

I was just reading over at JohnCow.Com and he is really mad. It seems there is a blogger out there promoting fake contests of items he never intends to give away. So far this blogger has held fake contests for a Wii , a PS3, and an Iphone. I would be very glad to give this fraudster a bad review but he is unworthy of his web address ever being mentioned much less as anchor text. I would however ask all of my readers to go read where John Cow initially announced winning a PS3 from the site, and then boycott that blog.


Many people have pondered the idea of starting an online store and having their merchandise dropshipped. In theory it works great and once the site is set up, there is nothing more to do other than watch the money roll in. Thats when you start hearing about how theory does not imitate real life, I myself gave up on this idea due to my inability to find a reliable, trustworthy, legit dropshipper that could get me a product to sell at wholesale price. This next blog, Drop Ship Digest deals with answering questions for people that are truly interested in dropshipping. It discusses all the Pros and Cons of dropshipping and is a very good read for anyone thinking of online success.

Starting Your Own Business

I recently stumbled upon and I wish I had this much knowledge so readily available to me eight months ago when I started my own business. I spent the first three months struggling to turn any kind of profit, quite simply because I had done absolutely no prior planning of my business. I had no idea who my target was so I blindly targeted anyone that would listen, thus costing me way more money than I ever needed to spend. It was only a combination of blind luck and a sudden realization of what I was doing wrong that led me to success. I can now say that in the last 5 months, I have earned more money than I ever have in any one year. Business is booming and the only thing bothering me as I approach the end of my first year in business is how much further I could have gone through proper planning. I will be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed from and read everything I can. I firmly believe that as when I start my next company (why own one business when two will increase earnings? ) I will be better prepared.
