I’ve been a member of shopkick – http://get.shopkick.com/oakland67062 for more than a year now. I already claimed my first reward last year and I gave it to my friend but she didn’t use it yet. Then, I deleted my app from my phone.
This year, I thought about it and try to use it whenever I can remember it every time I will shop. Besides, clicking the app is free and I can earn points. With the accumulated points, I can claim some e-cards and I can redeemed it whenever I want.
Last week, I tried to use it at one of the grocery stores here in my town. I just want to earn walk-in kick points (upon entering the store) and then I can also earn points when I will scan some items that shopkick put in their apps. When I entered the store, shopkick won’t let me do it. It stated that I should go to the entrance for the shopkick points as a proof that I am within the store. So, I went back at the store entrance and tried to open the app but it didn’t let me. Since I wasn’t able to have the WALK-IN KICK POINTS, therefore I cannot scan the products that they want me to scan. It didn’t matter though, I can try it next time.
Anyway, whenever I am not using this app, I will have to moderate on the access of this app in my phone for privacy. I’ll just have to open it whenever I am in the store that they are affiliated with for me to earn walk-in kick points and some scan kick points.
On the other hand, I’ve learned this app through my friend (thanks to her) and it’s fun for as long as the app will give me a walk-in kick points and I can use the app to scan some items for me to earn kick points. Freebies are always great to have!
People these days are into high technologies and gadgets that include toddlers, kids and teens. Way back when I was a kid, my toys were different and I was contented with few things.

This is my experience right now with host gator dot com. Their support years ago is not the same as what I experienced right now. I hope they can reply as soon as possible coz I need a full access to the web hosting that I just purchased. I just need to set up few of my domains in this new hosting to separate from my other one with the other company. Anyway, I am patiently waiting though. I know I can have my turn in no time.

Word press blogging platform is a very interesting thing with lots of wonderful codes. I tried to fix different problems of my blogs and the blogs of my hosted friends in which I also fixed some sites of my online friends even if I am not hosting their sites (sometimes they will pay and share their blessings to me but most of the time I’ll give my services for free). Today, I fixed one of the blogs of my friends as it has a word press white screen of death as what they call it. There are many reasons why a wp blog will encounter a white screen. One of the common reasons is because of certain plugins. So my advice to my friends is that they need to choose the plugins that they will be using. Another thing is choosing a nice theme with a nice code. The other problem with wordpress white screen is that sometimes there are some codes in the blog itself that is being wiped out or emptied.
So, today I had a hard time fixing the blog of my friend. I already deleted the themes and the plugins but it’s still having white screen. And then I remember maybe there are some folders that’s being emptied or the codes were erased but it won’t show on the error logs. When I check a certain folder, it was totally emptied. When I put back the code, reset the database, changed the username of the blog and the password, everything was fine. Her blog is back to normal again. Thanks God that I am always being guided wherever I fix blogs with problems.
Giving a presentation can be a nerve-wracking experience for anyone, whether you belong to a global company or you are presenting your business plan as an entrepreneur. The key to giving great presentations is practice. While you are practicing, you can use these strategies to help you craft a solid, succinct presentation for your audience, big or small.
Know Your Parameters
A presentation cannot go on forever, even if you have enough fascinating information to fill the time. Before you begin practicing your presentation, you will need to know how long you have to give it. There may or may not be room for extra time, depending on who you are presenting to and whether other presentations are scheduled. Once you have this information, you can start timing your speech during runthroughs to help you get down to the exact time you need.
Prepare Visual Aids
Presentations are a great way to entertain and teach people at the same time. However, simply staring into the eyes of your audience members and talking nonstop will bore them, no matter how exciting your subject matter may be. To make sure you are keeping a balance of entertaining and informative points, it is important to provide visual aids. These can be int eh form of charts, graphs, photos or bullet points of our most important facts. To make it easy to control during your presentation, creating custom PowerPoint presentations can keep all of your visual aids in one easy-to-use product.
Use a Test Audience
You can practice all you want by yourself, but to truly understand how an audience will react to your presentation, you will want to gather a small test audience to figure out what is working and what isn’t when you are giving your presentation. This is helpful not only to see their reactions, but to also ask them what they think about specific points, your body language, or anything else you are unsure of.
Making your presentation great is easy when you take the time to practice. Once you have it down, you will be able to successfully give your presentation to investors, managers, CEOs and anyone else that may be in your audience.
