Upgrading WordPress

When I first started hosting my own blog I was a little weary about upgrading WordPress.   I wasn’t sure why I should be doing it and manually upgrading it was just a pain.  I was worried that I’d accidentally miscopy files, or delete files, and screw up my entire infrastructure.  Now, I know upgrading is vital…

  • Why?  Security Patches! As hackers find security holes, wordpress releases patches to close these vulnerabilities.  The last thing you want is a hacker taking over your website causing you to lose control, goodwill, and advertisers.  Secondly, wordpress is also releasing new features to make your life easier…  Who doesn’t want to make their life easier?
  • How?  WordPress Automatic Upgrade Plugin!  This plugin allows for one click easy upgrading of your wordpress engine.  With this you pretty much have o excuse to not upgrade, it even provides options to backup parts of your blog in case something goes wrong.  Just as a quick note, I usually disable the plugin when I’m not actively upgrading (no need to have it running). 

Happy Upgrading.

Times are tough, so let’s make money!

Times are tough right now, so why not make some money where we can. Here are some of the programs I use, how they work, and what you can make…

  1. Gomez Peer:  The Gomez Peer is a Java-based application that runs in the background of your PC, with a little application window that you can have open on your desktop.  It uses a peer-to-peer system to utilize unused PC power for various projects, and you get paid for every minute you contribute.  It’s secure and I have had no issues with it and you can set how much you want your machine utlizied.  It has a low payout of just $5 (meaning you get paid everytime you accumulate $5).  You can expect to make about $5 a month just running one PC and you can add as many PC’s as you want to your account.  Also you can refer other users and make a small % from what they make.  $5 a month doesn’t sound like much, but you get it for doing absolutely nothing, and it covers that unlimited texting plan you just bought…
  2. ING Direct:  Open a savings or checking account with them and start earning interest.  Rates aren’t amazingly high right now, but why not get a few extra dollars a month just for putting your money here?  You can transfer your money out as much as you want so no worries about it being tied up like in a CD.  Better yet, contact me for a referral email and when you open an account with an initial deposit of $250 you will automatically get $25 (and I get $10!).  Personally, I enjoy getting money via interest… I bet you will as well…
  3. Predictify:  Predictify is a website where registered users “predict” (read: guess) the answers to questions and get paid out based on their accuracy.  How much you make is based on how good you are, but it is easy to make hundreds if you’re paying attention.  Let me invite/refer you and I get a 10% bonus (same for you when you invite your friends).  At the least, you can have some fun answering the questions that interest you.
  4.  This is a website that provides games you can play against other users for money.  How much you win depends on your skill, but it’s fairly easy to make money quick and they offer options such as filling out surveys to get cash.  It’s free to join but you need an invitation.  I have some left, you can use them if you follow the link here.
  5. Text Link Ads:  Requires website/blog: This site allows website and blog owners to sell text ads.  The program is different from adsense primarily because you host the same text ads for the time period they have purchased and you are paid a $ amount per month just for displaying it, not pay per click.  Also, the payout system is great since they will pay you whatever amount you make each month (like 6+ dollars a month per ad).
  6. Review Me:  Requires website/blog:  Get paid for reviewing websites in your area.  You can either be contacted to review sites for a price that you set, or you can review websites that have open campaigns for $5-$15.  Payout levels are not too high so they are easily attainable.
  7. Problogger Job Boards:  Are you an able blogger?  Someone who is a good writer and wants to take a crack at it?  Problogger has a great job board for blog writers.  Take a look, there is a likely something that is a good fit for you.
  8. Google Adsense:  Requires website/blog:  Google’s contextual pay per click advertising program.  Throw an ad up on your site and wait for clicks to make money.  Unfortunately the payout is high, $100.  Some tips I have for you from my experience – video ads pay better than text, clicks in the mornings pay more than at night (because of billing cycles).
  9. Amazon Associates:  Requires website/blog:  Become an Amazon associate and make a % for all sales made through links you provide.  You can even have your own amazon storefront.  Depends on the products you link to and the amount you sell, the dollars can add up quickly!  It is worth a shot if you have a website or blog that talks about products often.
  10. Do legit work from home – Amazon’s Mechanical Turk Program:    Here, companies post tasks that machines cannot easily do, but that are relatively simple for humans. You choose the assignments you want, and, on completion, are credited with payment to your Amazon account. Payout is pretty low – $10.
  11. Sell the stuff you don’t use on Craigslist or Ebay:  you know how this works.  List what you want to sell on craiglist/ebay… sell it.

Good Luck!

Why isn’t Grey’s Anatomy amazing anymore?

What happened to the fun exciting Grey’s Anatomy of season 1? Relationships were forming, people were getting drunk and dancing on couches, there was no crazy massive disaster that required all hands…
Now I feel like every episode someone needs to die, someone has to argue with their best friend, and there must be crazy hospital failure drama.

Bring back season one style Grey’s Anatomy please.
