А вы хотите зарабатывать с блога? [ Monday,
March 29th, 2010

Всем привет!

Недавно заметил в блоге Игоря Бигдана рекламный баннер, где он предлагает рекламу в своем блоге. И тоже задумался над тем, как бы получить хотя бы небольшую копеечку со своего увлечения.

Наткнулся на форуме блоггеров http://www.bloggers.su/forum/ на раздел о монетизации блогов http://www.bloggers.su/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29, там обсуждаются многие вопросы, смысл которых мне непонятен. Тем не менее, некоторые из участников озвучивали цифры, и у некоторых якобы доход с блога был такой, что с основной работы можно было уйти... я бы тоже так хотел...

Особенно заинтересовала тема: Как начать зарабатывать на блоге? В ней новичкам, в т.ч. и мне, объясняют как найти рекламодателей для блога, какими способами вообще можно заработать... короче интересно блин и перспективно, как мне кажется.

А вы что думаете об этом?

To our heroes of 9/11...

I dedicate a moment of silence.
You will never be forgotten.
Not only were you brave
in the face of adversary,
Some of you took action
and showed the true meaning
of what freedom is against those
that would defy our basic human rights.
You sacrficed so much
That we could continue on.
Your names are written with
honor forevermore.
I dedicate a moment of silence.

Seems like places like this are a lot more common than I thought. And I thought that spazure was the only chick I knew of that loved geeks. Anywho... Just looking to see if there's going to be activity around here, and hoping to see if more will occur in the future.

Anyone who wants to track me down, the soon to be ended Homeworld and its replacement of Tortured Angel are places to locate me outside of LJ. I can be found in both of those places as Darren.

I've been so uber busy with work and life, that I haven't had much time to post in my personal journal, let alone here.

So here's a small update.

I'm going to Florida. I'm leaving tonight, actually. Driving the 16 hours to get there to see the girl who helped me create this community.

Also, my server is running tip-top. No downtime, no wasted cycles. New 60gig drive (even though S.M.A.R.T. reads it as bad and needing to be backed up and replaced.)

AND ... Seth's getting a laptop to play with. Yes kiddies, a laptop for Seth. After years of waiting and wanting, he's getting one to use for school and designing software on the run.

Kick ass, ya know?

More to post as the time flies in Florida. We shall see, shant we? :-D

The thought this closing so soon after I joined made me sad ;-(...

Anyway, as for something geeky? I just spent 3 hours playing WoW, in a party of all warlocks, gettng my fellhunter.
See my journal for the story, it's quite a tale. Anyone who plays WoW should understand what I'm saying, otheriwse... good luck.

Oh well, It's almost 1:00 AM, and I've got work tomorrow, so good night!

[ mood | quixotic ]

Yesterday I went out of the house for a while! About damn time, if you ask me. All I do is stay home most of the time and go to class nowadays. Oh and clean up the house. It's looking up! It really is, not as much as a pigsty as it was say, last month. Now all I need to do is get started on my ex's comp desk (okay his crap's on the floor too) and find a box or two to put his CDs in. He keeps forgetting to make me CD copies really! It drives me nuts. Last night he could have made a copy of Nirvana's Nevermind CD for me and he just forgot. He's all like I have to remind him but how the heck can I do that him when all day yesterday he's been on a stupid-ass tantrum that any five-year old could make. He should really get over himself!

On the upside I did get him to take new fresh pics of me on his digi cam. They are *huge* so I might as well figure out how to crop them or something so I can get at least ONE pic into RPO to let others see. Yeah, if I can get a friend to do something as crop (silly me I haven't a clue!) the pics or so and then I'll get to post them. Yeah, baby! XD I'd love to see what kind of comments I'd get with the pics. ROFL I might as well only stick in one photo, and I know who will crop that one pic for me. :D She just needs to really get on asap before I forget I have these pics to post in the first place!

Ooh wait before I forget this too! While I was out yesterday despite all the bickering, I found a cute tee that's all black, all cotton (watch it shrink in the machine XD) and it has Batman's symbol on it! Rofl. I couldn't help it, I just had to get it the minute I saw it and now I'm wearing it, with cat hair all over the shirt. Somebody's shedding this season. Besides that, I brought a couple bracelets that I had before so I could now have a pair of them on each wrist. They actually FIT my wrists, not just waiting for the day when I'd fling my arm and they'd accidently (on purpose) fly off. NO ONE MAKES THEM IN MY WRIST SIZE! Yeah, just wait and see how big they are when I figure out how to post the pic on RPO. Oh and one more thing, I also brought these cute hair chopsticks to stick in my hair instead of scrunchies. :D I tried that last night and I look pretty damn good! Then I brought one more thing: Learning the Tarot by Joan Bunning. Very interesting indeed, and so far from what I've read of it, also very informative. I think I'm going to enjoy reading this book ... It'll help with what I got going in my head and help me understand how I can find my deeper meanings to my cards.

I got my tarot totes in the mail too! Refer to a recent previous entry to find out what they look like. :D :D They are so gorgeous and utterly beautiful in how they feel to me! :D Now if I could just find several precious stones or semi-precious gems... [wish me luck on that one] ... I'd have my day made.

[ mood | devious ]

[Again, Bran is lazy. Forgive ... and you get to read single entries in here, instead of in her LJ all the crappy time.]

So guess what I got ...!
I finally managed to get the nerve up to order these. :D They're tarot tote bags ... tiny little bags of fabric (of all kinds) that are made for carrying your cards! Even though late last night on Saturday around after 9 pm that I went to WalMart and brought some nice fabric to wrap my cards in, it still wasn't enough. I wanted a wrap AND a tote! So I got these cool ones and I can show you what I'm going to use them for. I love how it makes me feel, they are so enchanting and soothing. I listed what I got for each deck!

Crow's Magick tote

Sacred Medicine Cards tote

And ... one more, because I could not just not get it: Element of Air

I'm looking forward to getting them soon. Hopefully sooner than for what I waited on getting my Crow's Magick so many weeks ago. I know that by then I'll be completely addicted and be searching for things related to anything of the tarot and of energy.

[Bran is now officially in anti-social mood.]

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
- Jack London

In response to Lord_Evil's question: (which I appreicate him asking because I bugged people to...)
Oh I've been waiting forever for these cards, almost prolly a month to be exact. I think the waiting, all of that has made it intense for me to get my cards any way that I can, and it's made me very receptive to tuning myself in with them the moment that I finally got my pack. Now that I've had them for a while, I feel it IS the perfect deck to me because number one, it felt like home the moment I touched it when I was making my wrap designs late last night to prepare them. I shuffled til I gave myself blisters (okay just bragging there) but I did feel nicely ordered with my cards. I feel more in tune with myself, the cats love me (and abuse me all at once) plus I am feeling better and more open to certain energies and keeping myself going like a battery. I have a long ways to go and a lot of time to study these, but I cannot wait. It feels like my life is almost opening a book to write about ... now onward for candle magic. :D I want specific quesitons now heehee!

[Because Bran is one hell of a lazy-ass dream geek. Ask her about her cards.]

If there is at least one person in your life whom you consider a close friend, and whom you would not have met without the Internet, post this sentence in your journal.

[So true]

Today's the first morning in a long time that I get to shower at 5.30 and like it. I only hope the water's hot enough, soon I will turn on the gastly lights to see what I'm doing and not get me bruises from bumping into stuff, that I forget how I get them later after showering and getting dressed. It's slightly chilly too, but who cares? It's this stuff that keeps you awake! And yeah, I had another strange dream yet again. It was VERY interesting though ... I can TRY to document it here.

The surroundings were almost like from any number of MMORPG games out there, like KoL, EQ, and WoW.
My name in my dream was Misericord, but I was posing as someone else, some little black-haired chick that meant nothing to anyone, and I wasn't necessary anywhere. I found myself in a gateway kind of like from my beloved game .hack//infection, wearing a nice blaze of clothes that oddly looked like a fire mage's outfit ... or something to that effect. Wait, the point is. I went exploring in this dream all the while listening to haunting whispers and 'watching' events unfold in the space/time of my mind, all the while focusing on a sea of faces in 'reality' inside that dream and wandering with [and without at times] an oaken staff in hand. I did not see myself except in the reflection of the eyes of others in this dream. As I went exploring I came across some kind of barway. There was a counter running circular around a fixed point, and various shady [and unshady] characters were seated at this long bar. For some reason I felt like I was searching for something and followed this line all the way around, occasionally taking a sample of food to taste from the various points where I would pause and see what they made. It wasn't always a bar, this was also a place that served some pretty good-tasting food. Like sausage for one, only it wasn't the kind we make today ... Then I find myself spinning off [not literally] and waiting for something to occur, seated on some colored couch or chair all spiffy dressed like this, my staff across my thighs, and holding up a book that remarkably looked like the one I own [for Crow's Magick] only the writing on it ... the symbolism was like letters but well, I could read it. The book was black with colors on it ... I'll take a pic one day and show you, after having a dear dear friend convert the program I save my pics in so I can display it soon. Anyway. The words I could recognize and read like a pro, but I forgot them all except for one. My name. It was a book about me, about in 'reality' my character that I really was, not who I pretended to be, so I could go amongst them and not be used... The word in that strange symbolism was Misericord and it is currently the only thing I remember upon waking.

[Now send your thoughts to her! COMMENT! For she is a comment whore. :D]
[Really. Ask her about her cards.]

My Bio says:

Me in a paragraph? Not gonna happen... I'll give you what I can though...
I'm a student studying Computer Science at Kettering Universiy in Flint. I'm currently in my work term (http://www.kettering.edu/Co-op/Student/Program.asp for info), and working for a small company in Berkley, MI. I enjoy playing any kind of game, programming, water sports, skiing, and talking about life, the universe, and everything (42).

Perhaps a few of my favorite quotes will give you an insight to my being...
Life would be much eaiser if I had the source code.
Truly great madness can not be achieved without significant intelligence.

Well I've been attempting to get VNC's Java interface running from work, and unfortunately they seem to block the outgoing packets meant for it from their web browser (IE *gag*)...

Sooo... I took it a step further. Portable Firefox (no luck) and now today, I'm copying just a quick hash of my VNCViewer (I'm doing some custom code on it to make it smaller, take out features I don't use, etc etc.) to see if that will allow me to connect.

If all goes well, I won't need to SSH Tunnel it out, because frankly I'm not worried if some IT tech head decides he wants to visit my personal server for any reason. There's nothing on it except my own things, so it won't matter legally. And besides, my VNC tends to do some massive, transparent logging. ;-)

Now let's see if this little bastard works.

EDIT: Everyone welcome Lord_Evil to our den of geeks. For some odd reason he decided to choose us to join. ;-) ... I've looked at his journal, and I approve. Lord_Evil, tell us a little about yourself.
