This was my first change oil for my vehicle this month. I opted to visit the nearby auto shop after knowing that the car dealer of where my husband bought this was closed early. I paid more than $80 bucks because I chose the premium oil. I waited there for more about 20 minutes with me observing the mechanic of how to change oil. Even if it was cold near the repair bay, it did not bother me because I learned something new and that’s about my vehicle. After the change oil, I got my free wiper fluid and free automatic car wash. There should be another free thing – like a coffee but I did not ask one. Well, maybe the next time, I would have change oil, I will ask for free coffee but I will try to visit the car dealer and see if they will offer me a cheaper price compared to this auto shop that I chose this year.
Where will I start? Okay this is about blogging and my life. I started blogging way back middle of 2007 when a good friend (she’s my angel in blogging) of mine told me that blogging was the source of her income and it’s the reason why she couldn’t reply to my messages as quickly as she could. So, I pondered about it and thought that if I would make my own blog, I also can earn something like her. During that time, it was a bit hard for me because I didn’t know where to start. Imagine that I started creating my blog August and was successful October of that year but mixed with sweat and tears because when I create one site, I would delete it because I didn’t know what I was doing. Until December came and I received one of my offer in which I get compensated on January 2008 for about $2 and I jumped for joy. When my other half knew about it, he said to me “Can you live in that amount for six months?” My answer was “At least I’ve proven that blogging is true.”
In year 2008, I’ve created more than 10 blogs and kept on spreading the words about the good side of blogging and or creating a personal online diary. This time, I taught my friends and relatives about the goodness of having blogs. For those who are listening, they get the best results and they are earning. At the same time, they are helping advertisers in any possible ways they can because they can easily write any good stuff for those good business owners.
The World Wide Web is one of the best ways for people to keep in touch and to do business in a good way. It is like helping each other across the globe, communicating, doing some reviews, making friends, promoting products and services, and many more. But of course, blogging and earning on the internet is made possible by good paid blogging companies which are true to their clients and to their online freelance writers or bloggers. There are many paid blogging companies that exists but few will remain as the time pass by. The one that will remain are the companies which have the heart in connecting their advertisers and freelance writers. These companies are the one which have good compensation on their online writers as well as maintain a good business connection with all of their advertisers.
So, this is a part of my story as a blogger! Thank you for reading! May you will be blessed with more every day!
3 Little Piggies & Big Bad Wolf – Interactive Story Book and Fun Games for Kids
This is one of the great interactive apps for all ages especially for babies and kids. My 30 months old daughter and my 7 year old son love watching this many times over. They said that they like the names of the little piggies and they find it so cute. They also love all the nice colors and everything in this interactive story book. My son loves the “read myself” button along with listen & play while my daughter loves the auto play as she just want to see the piggies move and talk. Whenever the wolf would show up, both of them would cream out so loudly. This is such a wonderful app and I would recommend this to parents who want an interactive book for their babies and kids.
Are you a strong high school bowler who wants eventually to go to college? If you are, you may want to consider an option many don’t even realize exists: bowling scholarships. Although we tend to think of basketballs, baseballs, and footballs in terms of college scholarships, a bowlingball can pay for your education just as well if you know how go about it. Here are a few tips on college bowling scholarships that could pay off –literally—as you or your kid prepares to apply for college.
Get Into League Play
Many experts agree the best place to start looking for college money in bowling is in your local league play. Many of these organizations at the local and state levels have money set aside for scholarships and you (or your kid if a parent is reading this) need to be involved to be considered. Keep in mind, these scholarship committees will usually be looking at academic performance, community service, and other factors in addition to bowling prowess, so applicants need to be well-rounded candidates for serious consideration.
NCAA and Other Scholarships
In the NCAA, the prospects are far better for women student bowlers than men. There are currently 43 member schools in the NCAA that offer women’s bowling scholarships (in Division 1 and 2). Only two schools within the NCAA offer scholarships in bowling for men. Still, there are a lot of options for the men in other organizations. The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) offers a host of financial assistance for bowlers, both men and women, and 24 NJCAA schools have bowling teams. The catch is that the NJCAA doesn’t offer sports scholarships, so coaches use other enticements like academic scholarships and other incentives to attract top bowling talent.
Get Educated about Scholarships, then Go Get Your Education
There is a wealth of information available today online to help sort out all the finer points of the opportunities available in bowling scholarships. A search at collegescholarships.org reveals the top four bowling schools are considered to be Wichita State University; University of Nebraska; New Jersey City University; and Vanderbilt University. Those schools will attract the very best student bowlers, but should be on anybody’s short list to consider.
There is an old joke where somebody asks “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?” and they are told, “Practice!” In a similar vein, the surest way to get a bowling scholarship is through practice, practice, practice. Novice bowlers all the way through top pros will find all their bowling supplies—and more—available at http://www.bowlingballs.com.
Thanks to the heroic catch of the airport guard to a baby that fall from the table – http://tv.yahoo.com/daytime/dint-airport-security-catches-falling-194007353.html. Seeing the video I was like, OMG, that person was the Angel of the baby at that moment. I could say that God is always good all the time and anywhere. God bless that guard and that baby.
There are several reasons why you might need to find information about a company. For example, if you’re in the job market, you want to know as much as you can about prospective employers before an interview, and consumers like to research products and services before they buy. The type of information you can find about a company depends in part on whether it’s a public or a private company.
A private company doesn’t sell shares publicly and it isn’t registered with the NYSE, so sometimes it’s difficult to glean much information beyond the name, physical address, phone number and web address. What you find above the information that a private company chooses to divulge on their website is based on searching online databases. The fact that a company is privately held doesn’t necessarily mean anything sinister. It simply means that they have no need or desire to sell shares to the public; many fine and upstanding businesses are private companies. Publicly held companies are held to a different standard of transparency. They must register with the Stock Exchange and file financial reports to the SEC on a quarterly basis. Depending on the industry, they may also have to register with other governing boards that regulate companies in their sphere. All of this information is freely available to the general public from a variety of sources.
Some other differences between public and private companies are:
1. The number of members. Private companies can consist of as little as two people, where public companies must have at least seven members. Public companies can have as many members as they want, but private companies are limited to 50 current members, total.
2. The number of directors. The minimum number for a public company is three directors, for a private company, it’s only two. There are also legal restrictions in the appointment of directors of public companies.
3. Public companies must have a formal statutory meeting and file a report on that meeting with the register.
4. Managers of public companies can’t by paid more than 11 percent of the company’s net profits; there are no restrictions on private company management remuneration.
Some places to look for information on any type of corporate entity include search engine listings, social networking sites, industry association listings and corporate review sites. There are websites that are similar to social networking sites and are predominately used for listing information about companies and business persons of interest. These sites are used mainly for the purposes of expanding business contacts; call them social networking sites for businesses, if you will.
TrueCar Businessweek is an example of the kind of information you can find about private or public companies on websites that specialize in listing corporate profiles. This particular listing provides an overview of a private company that provides a service to a specific consumer niche: new car buyers. The information lets potential readers know the type of information they can find in this online publication, the physical location of its headquarters, the phone number and web address and the year the company was founded. It also lists news articles that mention the company, so you can browse and read further on your own.

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are 100% mine.
There are people who find the adventures of their lives outside their homes, like they will go from different places, shopping, mingling with friends in different scenic views, and more. On the other hand, there are also other people also who want to just spend their quality time inside their homes cooking, doing chores, watching favorite TV shows – movies, playing with kids, and many more.
Speaking of favorite movies, there are people who will spend big just to have premium channels from their favorite cable companies. There are many people also who are wise when it comes to their entertainment packages and they chose to have Netflix subscription. They said that in this way they can have big savings. And they are true. I personally love Netflix. I am even following them and I did Like Netflix on Facebook so that I will know some promos and new movies. I also do Follow @Netflix in Twitter. And that would include that I do Follow Netflix on Pinterest. In this way, I am one of the many who will know their whereabouts and their new stuffs.
On this Holiday
On these holidays, having Netflix is one of the best choices. It is easy to view movies and favorite entertainment anywhere, like in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, outside the house, and even including in the bathroom. As for me, I do love watching Netflix in my laptop whenever I am in the kitchen cooking some yummy foods for my family, especially now that they partnered with Chef Curtis Stone (a celebrity chef).
How about you?
Do you want to save on your entertainment bills also? If you are, do check Netflix. You will not just be saving on electricity bills, but you can watch it anywhere you may be. Inside your home or even when you are on mobile. Like when you are traveling to distant places, or having groceries, or waiting for some appointments, you can easily entertain yourself with Netflix.
When talking about foods and cooking with celebrity Chef Curtis Stone, I do love this recipe – Red’s Orange White Russian. Here is the recipe for that:
Red’s Orange White Russian
The Chef said this: “I couldn’t resist creating a recipe inspired by the character Red on the Netflix hit show “Orange is the New Black”…she is a chef, after all. This version of the classic White Russian cocktail includes orange liqueur and orange zest. Orange truly is the new black!”
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Make-Ahead: This cocktail is best served as soon as it is made.
1/4 cup Kahlúa
2 tablespoons vodka
1 tablespoon Cointreau
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 navel orange
1. Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add the Kahlúa, vodka, and Cointreau and gently stir to blend.
2. Pour the cream over so that it floats on top of the Kahlúa mixture. Using a fine grater, grate some orange zest on top. Serve immediately.
Aside from the cooking shows that I love, the most important role of Netflix for my family and me is the cartoon movies in which almost the whole day and night, my kids love to watch. My husband’s favorite shows are the series movies in which he would just be the one watching it in the room because it’s all Sci Fi movies.
What are my plans for these holidays with Netflix?
Since I am not the boss of my home, it would be my kids who would hug Netflix most of the time. But if they will take their naps, that would be the best time for me to watch my favorite shows especially the cooking shows. I do love Netflix for the reason that I can watch my favorite shows anywhere and anytime I want. Best of all, Netflix brings savings to my wallet.
How about you?
Are you a Netflix subscriber too? What are your experiences with using Netflix? Did you have the same satisfaction like I have or even more?
