Am I actually supposed to work?

WOW! Two posts in one day so far?! Of course, if my boss happens to check the times on the posts I’m most likely screwed…good thing that he’s a good guy! I just spent a few minutes making minor tweaks to the site. I added some affiliate links on the sidebar – currently located on the left. Links for B & B Electronics, Cheap Caribbean Vacations, and of course WestJet were added. If you happen to purchase anything through one of these links, a portion of the proceeds go to help end world poverty by 2025 through The Millennium Project.

I’m also hoping to tweak my Google Adsense content over the next few days, into weeks, then into months and hopefully years even. I’ve been doing some searching about ways to optimize your site posts and get Google to show more relevant content to your site. So, I’m not going to go backwards and edit a number of posts, we’ll just continue forward and implement them. Of course, the most important thing to generate site revenue would be that of these little mysterious people we call site visitors or guests.

I prefer guests to my site. Of course, this may be a part of the WestJet way of thinking, but I’d like to think that someone feels welcomed when they sit down at my site and begin to read. I don’t want a bunch of clutter, or other pointless things floating around…though I guess that’s why they’re here in the first place. My pointless thoughts! I used to have a blog by that name, but it got old, hijacked and spammed to death. So now I sit here, simply writing and hoping that the mysterious little guests will show up. And somehow, some way the little mysterious Google AdSense bot will hit my page regularly, and update the AdSense content accordingly and that people will click on the ads and generate some revenue so that it can be donated to The Millennium Project.

As a bit of a side note, I cannot tell you to click on the AdSense ads, so I’m not telling you or asking you to do so. If you see something that you’re genuinely interested in, then go for it! I do the same on other peoples sites — but never my own!

For some reason I really want to write today. I’m not sure about what, but I think that I need to come up with some sort of story. A subject. A character. Anything that will allow me to focus my energy and thoughts on that story instead of simple ramblings. Ideas? Suggestions? Of course you have them, so please just leave them in a comment. I look at all comments, and am very open to suggestions…you just have to leave them.

Shopping spree!

OK, I guess it’s not really a shopping spree, but I did do some quick shopping. I just bought three of the most useless things in the world, just so the two iBooks in my house would look even cooler then they already do. Yes, we’re a crazy Mac house! It’s been almost 3 years now since I had my first sip of Kool-Aid and I’ve never looked back. It’s been about 8 months since I powered down the last Windows PC in the house, and it’s been sitting in the corner collecting dust ever since. In fact, I’ll probably turn it into a Linux based server at some point…just not sure when I’ll have that time, plus the time to maintain it. At least that amount of time will be far less then maintaining a Windows Server.

It’s actually quite early in the morning for me to be posting, but like in my last post, I’ll post whenever I want to. I noticed something this morning when my friend from canadianlyndsay.com mentioned to me that I did miss a day. Well, a little investigation showed me that my post times were off, but only by 5 hours. So, don’t go for my posts based on the times that are displayed…until I get it fixed. Of course, I have no clue when that will be.

One other thing that I noticed is that Microsoft Word for Windows is lacking something that they’ve built into the Mac version. In the Mac version, the word count is showing at the bottom in the status bar — in the Windows version, it’s completely missing. I might be able to enable it through some setting somewhere, but just not sure where. Again though, it’s an additional setting I’d have to enable. At least it would seem that Microsoft puts some thought into the UI for Mac users — probably because they require it!

Starbucks LogoAs well, I’ve got to note that the triple Grande, non-fat, no whip mocha’s that I’ve been drinking lately from Starbucks sure are starting to pay off. Well, if I was buying their stock it probably would. I keep spending a lot of money on them. They average about $5, and going through 1 or 2 of them a day sure adds up. Guess I might just give it up for a while, or further limit myself to the quantity per week. Just budget myself a little more closely…or figure out how to become rich and not worry about the money aspect.
