All Over The Road
Slowly but surely I am creating my web presence. I imagine it will take a lot of discipline to keep any blog up to date. And it probably takes a big ego to think that you have a something interesting to say every day. Well, let's hope I can find enough to keep talking - although talking to oneself is talent worth developing.

One Single Absurd Notion

The easy path to fame and riches!

However, I can't take credit for this since I found it on one blog How2Blogger which credited another blog Timefan who got it from another blog, that of Kevin Pearse.

Want to start a band?
Then you need a name for the band, an album title and an album cover. Here's the easy way to do it!!!

1. The first article title on the page is the name of your band. (If it's the entry for a real musician or band, try again.)
2. The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
3. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your art work.
4. Use your favourite graphics or desktop publishing software to throw them together like this quick example I just did,

If you don't already own the software, use the link below to get your own free Serif software (who I just happen to work for BTW)

5. Then there's just the small job of writing some music.

6. Finally, sell your album on IACMusic - Independent Artists Company and keep every penny.

And, when you're rich and famous, don't forget the little people (like moi) who helped you get there.

Composting made easy.

Bokashi Bucket and Bran Introductory Offer

What if you could buy a product that is incredibly easy to use, and can be used to compost ALL your kitchen scraps (including meat, bones, dairy products and cooked food) into a fabulous soil conditioner ?

Well the Bokashi Bucket can do just that.......

Bokashi (Japanese for "fermented organic matter") was invented way back in the 1990s and is still relatively new in this country, it is an extremely easy system to use, and unlike a wormery a Bokashi bucket can take everything from your kitchen.

Bokashi is a mixture of Bran, Molasses and a special ingredient called Effective Microbes (Ems).
Ems are a mixture of bacteria and fungi which when mixed with the other ingredients and scattered over your food waste, will ferment it down, into an excellent soil conditioner.
This can then be fed to worms, put into a compost bin, or simply buried in the garden.

See also the video on how to make your own Bokashi bran for pickling your kitchen waste

What is rssHugger?

rssHugger · Increase RSS Subscribers with rssHugger's Blog Promoting

rssHugger is a unique website that aims to bring bloggers and readers together.

In a unique marketing plan (although very much in keeping with the ethos of the company), the registration fee for a permanent rss feed on their rssHugger is waived for those bloggers who review their website on their blog! If you do not want to talk about rssHugger on your blog, there is an alternative - simply pay a $20 review fee, which ultimately runs down to only $2 per year!

In their own words.

rssHugger aims to provide blog owners with a unique easy-to-use way to promote their blogs by sending them traffic, building backlinks for search engine optimization, as well as attracting new rss subscribers if the content is interesting to the reader. rssHugger aims to help visitors be able to easily find blogs that write about subjects they are interested in. These subjects include: internet marketing, making money online, charity, sports, gambling, and many more. If the visitors find a blog that they had not previously heard about, they can easily add it to their RSS readers or
bookmark it.

My view.

I think they are on to a winner. The bloggers promote rssHugger which, in turn, promotes the blog. It is a self-fulfilling cycle. Best of luck to Colin LaHay (the founder). If you are a blogger, drop by and check it out. If you are interested in reading blogs, you can find some real gems in here that a search engine might not track down.

The Experiment.

Right now, my blog has zero traffic. Mostly because I tend to post items I find on the net rather than create new content - this is due to laziness - and I don't do much self promotion. Let's see what rssHugger can do for my traffic. I will post on my birthday next month and report the increased traffic created by this association with rssHugger.
