Camping in 2011

1 comment

Posted on 4th February 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Marketing

I think a lot of today’s technology for campers has became too much. It seems the more tech-gadgets that come out, the less of an experience the campers are getting with Mother Nature. Using canvas tarps is fine because they do offer shelter, but some of the other new gadgets have got to stay home. Some of the sleeping bags now, are like bringing a few mattresses inside your tent. Even the tent has got a lot bigger and some tents can hold up to 10 full grown men in them. Bigger tents and sleeping bags that are as comfortable as a sofa, are just a couple of the things the modern campers are bringing into the woods these days. I usually just take a small sleeping bag and sleep on the ground with no tent. I find this much easier to take down the trails, but most of the modern campers are driving right up to their campsites

I guess they need to be close, when they drag out the radio and TV they plan to hook to an electrical outlet. I just don’t think this is really camping. The thing I like best about camping is the outdoors and surviving off of the land. You don’t have to hunt and kill your own food, but leaving the tech-gadgets at home, would be a little more adventurous. I would only take a cell phone and canvas tarp for emergency purposes, but turn it off when you get to your campsite. Go camping and leave the modern technology of the world behind. That’s one of the fun things to look forward to; when you go camping this summer. If you want the comforts from home with you; perhaps you should just stay at home.

Web hosting companies in 2011

Posted on 2nd February 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

Over the years I have learned a few things about creating websites and the things I need to do to get them up for others to see. After you put the time and money in to developing your website, you’re going to need a hosting service so it can be seen on the World Wide Web. All hosting companies are different, so it’s important to look at a few of them and find out which is the best web hosting service for you. You can easily look at some of the best hosting plans by visiting various companies and looking at their credentials and seeing what other webmasters are saying about various hosting companies. It’s a real simple way to find your first web hosting company or if you’re looking to switch from your current hosting provider.

By researching online you will be able to read reviews on those web hosting companies that you know and probably some that you haven’t heard about before. These reviews can really be helpful in deciding what web hosting company you choose. I know the price and service are a big issue with me, so that is one of the first things I want to know about and which hosting service is the cheapest. The one that has the best price may not provide all the things you’re looking for or you see that they have a lousy support service so you’re willing to spend a little more.

Wear the appropriate steel toe shoes for those home projects

Our house could use a few touch-ups here and there. We don’t need a new room built on yet, but if we could fix up the ones we have now, would be great for this year. Getting in the construction mind takes a lot of supplies and we need just a little bit of everything at my house. Several of the rooms need a good paint job and I need another painter around that could help me paint in a linear motion. I will probably spend more money on plastic and tarps trying to protect things than the actual paint will cost. One room in our house has a very high ceiling, so painting it is really a job. I like the rooms where the 6 foot ladder is enough, but the highest point in my home (that needs painting) is well over 10 feet tall. I hope I have time to take care of the kitchen cabinets and give them a good coat of paint. Even with jobs around the house you need to make sure you have the proper Steel Toe Shoes and protective eye ware just to be safe. That is why companies like Steel Toe Boots USA has a great selection and will save you money. I certainly have my work cut out for me this year, but I know I will be glad I did them when next winter arrives.

With our home PC and laptops a critical link to being able to create content and design for our blogs we need to make sure that they are not infected with malware, spyware, and are running at their optimum level — for software in order to stay productive. Make sure that you do your research whenever installing any new software and be cautious of those pop up ads that promise to clean your computer of potential viruses as they are typically a form of spyware themselves.

Protecting your computer on the internet is an everyday job. There are so many different viruses, Trojans, hijackers, and things trying to get in our computers to cause it harm. In most cases, it’s nothing that will actually damage your computer. It will just make your computer slow down, or crash more frequently. Norton Antivirus 2011 is one of the leading companies that has software and solutions to help you protect your computers and networks.

Now if you have noticed that your computer isn’t running as fast as it use to be. Then there’s a good chance that spyware is on your computer. Spyware Doctor with Antivirus is another great solution to help protect your PC or laptop. Internet Security Software is a booming business. There’s so many people out there that have no anti-virus protection for their computers. They are just left in the open, waiting on an attack by some hijacker or trojan out there. Getting some protection for your computer is almost a must these days. It’s practically impossible now, to surf the internet with no sypware or virus protection on your computer. If you are one of those people that doesn’t have any form of protection on your computer.  You can do searches on the search engines, to help find reviews on different products and find multiple options on Top Antivirus  Software reviews to help you find the best product for your home and office.

A way to keep your watch on time

A watch makes a great gift for any time of the year. You can give them out for birthdays, on Fathers Day or even for the Christmas holidays that is fast approaching. I have seen a specific watch winder case for those really nice time pieces. A nice watch or any of the other stylish watches you can find these days make an excellent gift from Santa. I am not currently wearing a watch but I think I would like to have one. It’s not only stylish to have a watch, but it helps you to keep track of your day. I know when you don’t wear a watch; your often thinking about what time it is. No matter how we try to escape from everything, there is still a need for time. Even on vacation we want to know what time it is, so we can determine how much of our vacation is left. So if you’re trying to find a gift for that man in your life this year and haven’t thought of the perfect gift yet, just get him a watch! It’s a gift that he will enjoy and actually use for a long time.
You want to find a watch that is just for you. You can also find and orbita watch winder that are specially made for your watch. They some in single watch winders and multi-watch winders as well in a distinctive box. Something that you will feel comfortable with. The Key Blue Watch by Nixon, looks like a great watch for me. I think that one would suit me the most. I do like blue too, so that helps in making my decision for a watch. I did think the some of the older self winding watches are a great idea for any man or woman. I don’t think I could go wrong with either one of these two watches.

Wearing a watch these days isn’t just for having the correct time. It’s become a fashion statement. In some cases, it shows how successful we’ve been by displaying a high price watch around our wrist. By keeping them in a special watch box you can preserve your watch and make sure it is always showing the correct time. Then you still have the people that just want to wear a watch, so they do indeed have the right time. So stop asking people for the time, and go buy a watch for yourself today.

SMM or Social Media Management tools are the hottest topic today due to the fact that Google is placing more emphasis on social engagement and how you rank.

Finding your work boots

2 comments

Posted on 27th January 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Marketing

I have a couple of pairs of boots in my footwear collection right now. One of the pairs of boots I have is for wearing out and I like them for going out to eat or doing activities with my friends. The other pair of boots I own is more for working or maybe going hunting in the woods with. They come up the leg pretty high and they are so thick at the top, you really can’t pull your pants leg over them. So your pants stay above your boot line and that’s not the look I really want, if I was going to go out and shoot pool, go bowling or out to see a movie. I think most people have some type of boots like work boots, stylish boots, cowboy boots, or perhaps something in work boots.

When you wear your boots you might think of that song that talks about these boots were made to walk all over you. I know Victoria Gotti the daughter of the legendary mobster John Gotti had a reality show that was on not too long ago. Her theme song that would come on was that song that talks about these boots were made for walking all over you. It would show Victoria in a cartoon image and you could see her wearing her tall black boots. The name of that reality show was Growing Up Gotti and it’s no longer on the air. The ratings were declining, but I actually liked watching the show. I think I seen every episode of it, but every time I hear that song, I think about Victoria Gotti and her tall black boots.

Keeping track of your fleet

Companies that have a large fleet inventory must be able to track and monitor where these vehicles are at all times. Construction and delivery services use gps vehicle tracking to help understand where there vehicles are as well as map out the most efficient route for them to take. Many of the new system can alert the operator of upcoming traffic issues and report back to the main control if a driver is speeding or not where they should be. Drivers and the company can better stay in communication on their overall day and through the mapping systems gain better insight into what are the more economical routes. Using gps vehicle tracking can also help you realize better overall productivity for your teams and your company.

Play free slots fever on Facebook

I haven’t had a chance to check out the games online, that allow players to build up a character or join another online member in attempting to conquer a mission or just travel safely through a series of mazes. I know I have friends that love to play these types of games online and they absolutely love them. I think they have even become addicted to them, as much time and energy they spend on playing some of these games.There is a huge demand for the action and adventure games online. Not to mention the various services that are around to offer assistance for these new and cool games of the future. The games of today have certainly changed from the days of playing Pac Man in the arcade for 25 cents a pop. I believe I would really like these new games online today, if I could ever find the time and extra money to dedicate to them. Especially those that allow friends to play online together or in a team, where they can help each other out in trying to win the game.
I was recently trying out the Free Slots Fever app for Facebook and I can say from experience that it was pretty cool. What I thought was going to be a quick 5 minute research project turned into a 30 minute gaming session. You can bet varying amounts and win multiple ways. What I like about the game is that you have chances to win extra credits through various scenarios. I was lucky enough to gain several icons the same in one spin and battle a knight where I was awarded numerous credits for picking the right place to hit him with my sword. This is what makes these games so addictive because once you experience a huge win you think that the next one is on the next spin. I can see how this would be pretty cool by competing against your friends to see who can collect the most coins or have the most battles. I guess the holidays are coming up and what a great way to spend time with friends and family.

Are you being watched at work

In this day and age of high speed internet many people are taking advantage of their work place broadband to stay connected to their social networks, watch Youtube videos, and change their starting fantasy football lineup. While most companies have a computer usage policy in place being able to monitor all their employees can be a daunting task. It is estimated that the loss in productivity and revenue is well over $750 billion. That is a staggering amount if you think about where we are in this economic time and people are being asked to do more with less resources. With that being said companies can help make sure that employees are staying on task and weed out those who abuse the corporate internet by using software solutions like My PC Reports.

Using these types of software solutions can be a game changer when it comes to more productive time at work. For a low monthly fee you can receive daily summaries of activities, websites visited, and applications that your employees are using. Some may think that is just “Big Brother” trying to invade your privacy and I say what you do at work is not your private business. People have a hard time separating the fact that what they say or do at work is not protected. If you are logging onto a website or playing games that you do not want your employer to know about then you should not be doing it with their PC’s and laptops. You read stories all the time where people are posting on their Facebook page during work hours complaining about their peers and managers. This only complicates the matter and is creating new and revised policies across corporate IT infrastructure. I do believe that employees should know that they are being monitored and website activity is being reported. This way the trust level remains high and people are more aware on what they do and don’t do a t work.

Getting help with affiliate marketing

Posted on 22nd January 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Marketing

The exciting part about Internet marketing is the number of people you can introduce to a new product or service. A person sitting at home in the United States has an opportunity to market to the whole European and Asian continents. How exciting is that? Most people may not realize the potential for an American to market to citizens in another country. For those that do understand this potential, could very well be the next owners of a website like You Tube, Facebook, MySpace, or even the “Wal Mart” of online websites we refer to as Google.

I would like to know which online programs you have found success with on the Net. Did you join an affiliate program and found a way to make money with it? You can now get help from folks like Kelly Felix who is the owner of the website rich jerk to gain insight and get help on how to become a successful online marketer. They have over 100K members where they help them understand the rules of the game and how to be more focused on making money. If you could name the number one affiliate program online today for people who are new to the whole Internet marketing world; which referral link would you give out? I am very exciting at all of the potential that exists for computer users like myself, who has big dreams and desires of making it big on the Internet. I am looking daily for a program online I think will be the next big thing to Internet users. Perhaps you already have found a program like this? If so, please feel free to share your top 1 or 2 online affiliate programs, you believe are great opportunities for making big money online.

Finding junk silver coins to invest

0 comments

Posted on 20th January 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Marketing

, ,

You probably don’t work on Wall Street right now. Your current job probably doesn’t involve working closely with stocks, silver prices, or other investment vehicles for growing your money. I realize how low the percentages are that most people reading my blog have absolutely no ties to the financial markets of the world. I bet those numbers go up, for those who currently know about the booming gold markets.

Silver has a long history in America and throughout the world. It’s hard to keep a good secret for very long; when that secret can result in a financial gain. The junk silver coins is available for anyone who wishes to get in on this silver market right now. No, it’s not too late! Don’t ever think you missed the train or boat when it comes to junk silver and opportunities. Investors who seek to buy gold coins in 2010, can still reap some short term rewards; while securing their self for a financial explosion in the future. There are no guarantees that any investment will return rewards in the future for investors. Just because the “guarantee” is not in place, doesn’t mean you and a company like the United States Gold Bureau could become very good partners over the next few years. They can supply you with gold, silver proof coins, and other precious metals you seek to invest in. I am extremely excited about the future of gold and even made gold panning my new favorite hobby!

Getting tax help for your stock trades

Posted on 19th January 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

Making money on Wall Street today, isn’t as easy as it use to be. There are still some good stocks you can buy and make money, but your selection process has to be much more carefully planned these days. I have located 5 stocks that have a long track record of beating the odds. I don’t see any reason why these stocks won’t continue to soar in the future. What is important to remember is that with every rising stock there are usually 20-30 that are slipping.

Investing today doesn’t have to be in your stock broker’s offices. The internet has made the way investors conduct business in a whole new way. There are so many investors making trades today online. Millions of dollars are getting electronically moved daily, as investors learn the ease of stock trading with an online broker. For you day traders who hate the end of year when you have to compile your gains and losses for tax time there is a Stock Tax Software that does most of the work for you. Relying on your personal tax software to help calculate your end tax responsibility could leave you at risk. The online trading of stocks is big business and for the beginner it can be very intimidating. As more and more people learn how to use a computer, they are learning just how easy it is to have a portfolio online.

Using vehicle wraps to increase your exposure

Posted on 18th January 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Marketing

We have all seen the cars and trucks that look like one giant traveling billboard. They have the company name and branding with some simple information like the phone number or website address. Using vehicle wraps in this digital age is just one other avenue that you have to help create brand awareness and drive people to your site. Imagine how many people see your fleet of vehicles on a daily basis and having them click on you web site when they get home can be a huge opportunity. They will either be curious to find out what you represent or make or be looking to make a purchase. Either way you overall cost per impression is minimal and this type of advertising is reaching a larger audience 24/7.
