Telly at Home

I cannot believe how much has changed for the last couple of years when it comes to televisions. When I was just a little kid, all we had was this small tell in our living room. Now everybody can have a huge LCD TV mounted on his wall. This is like a dream come true to many TV fans who enjoy the idea of spending time on their sofa watching TV after work.

Shopping for Christmas

I was bored at home the other day. What do I usually do when I am bored and have nothing exciting to do? I look for ways to spend money. I can do it easily by participating in DealDash auctions for example.

One thing that attracted me to Deal Dash was the fact that I learned that somebody bought a brand new iPad on DealDash for just a few bucks. I want to be the next person who manages to grab such a good deal as well.

Why Your Audience Should be Your Top Priority

One common mistake many new bloggers make is that they think that everybody on the Internet is their audience. This is something that they simply get wrong because this is very far from being true. The truth is that you cannot just please everybody and write for everybody. Instead, you need to specify for whom your blog really is. If your blog is targeted for mothers with children, men might not be that likely to read about it, which is OK to be honest. If your blog is about fitness, those who are not interested in weight loss and staying fit might prefer to stay away from your blog. There is nothing wrong with that. You just need to choose for whom your blog is and everybody should be already happy that way.

Content is Indeed King

If you are a blogger or webmaster of any other website that is not a blog, you probably have heard the expression that content is king. As a blogger myself, I experience all the time how true the statement is. This is why I am writing this post right now. By writing it, I want to prove to my readers as well as to Google that my blog is indeed worth visiting on a regular basis and the content I post here is quality.
Google values quality content. When you launch a new website, you cannot simply copy the work of somebody else. This is simply not how it works. You will get penalty from Google if you do that once or if you keep doing it for some time. Sooner or later, Google will catch you and your blog will have a penalty. Google�s penalty can be one of the most severe penalties I can think of. When your blog is not indexed in Google, it is as if it does not really exist. If people cannot find your blog through Google�s search engine, it is as if you never even existed. This is how harsh it is to be penalized by Google.

How to Find Your Targeted Audience

I receive tons of emails in my inbox every day. While some of those emails are of interest to me, most of them I do not even read, which is OK because I really do not have time to read everything I happen to come across.
Since I received so many emails over the weekend which were not targeted at me at all, this reminded me how important it is to find somebody to visit your website who will be actually interested in what you have to offer to them. You do not want to waste your time on people who show absolutely no interest when it comes to what you have to offer. Chances are that most of those people will never become interested in your services no matter how hard you try you convince them to buy from you.

Which Debts to Pay First

If you are like me, you took a few loans in the past and now you need to think about repaying them. The situation can be tricky if you like me have at least a few debts. One question I have been asking myself is which debt should I repay first. Since I do not have enough money to pay all of them at once, the least I can do is to try to repay one of it.
Which debts should be repaid first? In my opinion, those debts that can cause the most complications should be repaid first. Usually, those debts are debts with the highest interest rates. It is smart to pay them off first because the longer you wait, the more money you will have to pay to the person who gave you the money.

Shopping, Eating Out and Travel

From my personal experience as well as from the experience of many of my friends I can say that there are three common areas where spending can get out of control. I am thinking here about shopping, eating out in restaurants as well as traveling.

It is true that when I go shopping, I might be tempted to buy things I have not even thought about buying before entering a store. the same applies to restaurants and travel. Every time I want to buy a holiday package to some destination, I am tempted to spend more money on a better package and travel to some holiday destination instead. Sometimes, I cannot really plan it in advance. I might want to decide something on the spot without even consulting it with my family. One solution to the problem is using cash or debit cards for all those expenses. This should already help.

Is Jogging in Place an Option?

Not so long ago, I wrote an article about jogging in place which can be a great alternative to jogging anywhere in your neighborhood. This can be especially helpful if your neighborhood is not safe and if you are not willing to try your chances.
It seems that jogging in place is not such a good option if you have knees that are prone to injuries. This is what happened to me. After a few days of jogging in place, all I can feel is pain in my knees, especially when I walk down the stairs in my home. It is getting better with each passing day especially now when I no longer jog in place, but I am already considering switching to some other form of exercise that would not put so much stress on my poor knees. I know that not everybody will feel knee pain after jogging, but if you happen to feel it, you might want to stop doing whatever you are doing immediately.

Trying to Avoid Overeating

I do not about you, but I like to eat some tasty food. I might be even tempted to eat more of it when I really like it, but I noticed that I feel a lot better when I do not overeat. I might be tempted to eat more than my body needs and can process, but in the end I am going to end up feeling heavy and needing to digest the food for a long time.
It took me some time to find the right balance between how much I need to eat in order not to feel hungry and how much I want to eat. I simply have a food plan I try to follow that tells me exactly how much to eat. In other words, my Excel file tells me how much I can eat in order not to be hungry but also how much should I eat without overeating.

Lower Rates

I remember once having a credit card debt that was hard for me to repay. I started wondering what to do about it as the situation was obviously getting out of control. I asked one financial adviser who was my friend at the time for help and he was more than happy to offer me some sound advice.
It turns out that the company that issued my credit card was to blame. They simply did not offer me the best deal that had available at the time. I asked them to change my interest rates and they did it immediately. You can try to imagine how relieved I was and I happy I was at that particular moment. I contacted the friend who helped me and bought him dinner. This is how grateful I was to him for his invaluable advice.

Online Discussions

What always fascinated me about the Internet is that you can meet many people online and get involved in many interesting conversations with people all around the world. Whatever your interests are, you should be able to find like-minded people that have similar interests. It might be hard to have friends that have interest in various niche topics, but online this is never a problem. While spending hours and hours discussing things over the Internet is not always the best use of time, it is great that you can talk about practically anything if you are able to find the right forum or chat to do so.

The Benefits of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I know what you might be thinking after reading the title of this post. You might be wondering how come there are some benefits of a condition know as irritable bowel syndrome (usually abbreviated to IBS).
I have been suffering from IBS for some time now. I do not exactly know why I suffer from it. Maybe it is because I am rather sensitive and every time I get stressed a little my stomach muscles contract. Maybe there is some other factor such as genetics that contribute to this. I tend not to worry about it but rather look on the bright side.
As a IBS sufferer, I need to avoid fatty foods, which is good for me because my cholesterol levels are always under control and kept in check. In other words, the condition forces me to eat a healthy diet. One other advantage of IBS is that I cannot really eat that much because I tend to feel full really fast. This means that I am never going to have problems with obesity, which is great.
