Heath Ledger

Full Biography
Despite a short-lived start on series television, actor Heath Ledger moved into features as a heartthrob in teen films, quickly developing into one of Hollywood’s most prominent and gifted talents, as well as a tabloid favorite for his very public relationships with actresses Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams. After a notable turn in his native Australia’s “Blackrock” (1997), Ledger went on to stardom by way of leading roles in “10 Things I Hate About You” (1999), "The Patriot" (2000) and “A Knight’s Tale” (2001). Though he languished a bit in little-seen features like “The Four Feathers” (2002) and “Ned Kelly” (2004), Ledger exploded into a bona fide star with his Oscar-nominated turn as a closeted homosexual ranch hand in Ang Lee’s acclaimed "Brokeback Mountain" (2005). Building off the enormity of his “Brokeback” success, Ledger landed the role of a lifetime, playing The Joker in “The Dark Knight” (2008) and setting the stage for becoming a huge international star. But unfortunately – and quite shockingly – tragedy struck in early 2008, when Ledger was found dead in his apartment of a possible drug overdose, ending one of the most promising careers of his generation.
Heathcliff Andrew Ledger was born on April 4, 1979 and raised in Perth, Australia by mother Emma, a French teacher, and father Kim, a mining engineer and amateur racecar driver. Because his parents were Wuthering Heights fans, they named their son Heathcliff and daughter Catherine after the star-crossed lovers in Emily Bronte’s classic tearjerker. Indeed, young Ledger seemed to have a natural gift for drama himself, with an early interest in acting resulting in a stage debut with Perth’s Globe Shakespeare Company when he was only 10 years old. Ledger’s budding thespian tendencies were no secret at Guildford’s Boys Grammar School, where he was a member of the school hockey team, but also choreographed and led a school dance troupe to victory in a national competition. As hard-working academically as he was on the stage and hockey rink, Ledger hit the books and passed his high school graduation exams at age 16 in order to move to Sydney in search of an acting career.

With his tall, masculine looks and dimpled charm, he quickly landed a role in the feature film “Blackrock” (1997), a gripping fictionalization of the rape and murder of a teenage girl in a surf community. Ledger’s auspicious film debut led to a recurring role as Australian TV’s first gay character, cyclist Snowy Bowles in the drama "Sweat," which was set at an elite training academy for young athletes. His career snowballed with a solid run of guest work on Australian TV series "Ship to Shore," "Bush Patrol," and "Home and Away” before he was tapped for American television as the star of "Roar" (Fox, 1997). In the medieval-set adventure, Ledger played a teenaged Celtic prince who becomes the leader of his people when Romans murder his family. With a job description that included bellowing a mighty roar before beating the baddies, in addition to dealing with his inner turmoil, Ledger proved an impressive recruit and was well loved by the series’ cult audience. In 1999, Ledger starred in the crime thriller "Two Hands" (1998) from Australian director Gregor Jordan and earned a Best Actor nomination from the AFI Film Festival, where both the film and director earned top awards. Despite the independent accolades, Ledger earned considerably more attention for the American teen comedy, "10 Things I Hate About You" (1999). In this modern retooling of "The Taming of the Shrew," he starred as a moody student with a reputed criminal past who is enlisted to woo Julia Stiles. A teen heartthrob was born and now moviegoers on both sides of the pond were smitten.

Not surprisingly, the newcomer was barraged with Hollywood offers to repeat his onscreen success in a multitude of cookie cutter teen romantic comedies, but Ledger waited out the deluge until he found a vehicle that would show audiences another side of his talent. That opportunity was realized when Ledger played Mel Gibson's son in the much-heralded "The Patriot" (2000), a Revolutionary War saga about a pacifist (Gibson) forced to choose sides after his soldier son is captured by the enemy. Following the flurry of magazine covers and articles, the in-demand actor starred as medieval swashbuckler in a film set to arena rock standards in "A Knight's Tale" (2001) – with the tagline “He Will Rock You” reportedly embarrassing the young actor, who worried about the pressures of such a promise.

Determined to take another route than that predetermined by his rugged, blonde good looks, Ledger impressively held his own opposite Billy Bob Thorton as the anguished of a cold-hearted prison guard who kills himself in "Monster's Ball" (2001). He signed on opposite Kate Hudson to headline the Victorian military drama "Four Feathers" (2002), directed by Shekhar Kapur, but the film made nary a ripple at the box office. Commencing a high-profile and long-time romance with actress and fellow Aussie, Naomi Watts – ten years his senior – Ledger became a favorite subject of the paparazzi and entertainment media, particularly in the couple’s homeland. As his public profile rose, he sought to shore up his professional reputation with a portrayal of a renegade priest who runs afoul of an ancient and evil sect operating within the church in "The Order" (2003).

Ledger again earned favor with AFI Festival critics for “Ned Kelly” (2004), playing a good man driven to striking back at a corrupt British colonial system in 19th century Australia, after serving a prison term on trumped-up charges. Despite AFI recognition and a cast that included Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Naomi Watts, “Ned Kelly” was released by Universal into less than 20 theaters. Ledger’s next appearance was in “Lords of Dogtown” (2005), a fictionalized rags-to-riches tale of the Southern California figures who revolutionized skateboarding and propelled themselves into wanton celebrity. Ledger was virtually unrecognizable as Skip Engblom, who owns a surf shop and forms the skaters into the celebrated Zephyr Skateboard Team. Exploring still new territory, the hungry up-and-comer teamed with Matt Damon to play fictionalized versions of the famed Bavarian fairy tale spinners "The Brothers Grimm" (2005), reimagined by director Terry Gilliam as a pair of curse-removing con artists who are suddenly tasked with solving a genuine magical mystery that ultimately inspires many of their famous stories.

The unfortunate misfire was soon forgotten, however, in the face of his following project — director Ang Lee's adaptation of the E. Annie Proulx's story "Brokeback Mountain." In the finest performance of his short career, Ledger played Ennis Del Mar, a stoic, rough-around-the-edges ranch hand who unwittingly finds himself in a sexual relationship with a fellow cowboy (Jake Gyllenhaal) while on a lengthy and remote sheep drive. Adding to his character’s torment, the couple continues their complex relationship for the next 20 years, despite both getting married – with Ennis marrying Alma (Michelle Williams) and starting a family. Ledger's quiet, haunting, convincingly tortured performance was such a revelation, he was honored with a slew of nominations, including Oscar and Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor. By the time the film hit theaters, Watts and Ledger had broken up and he was dating his on-screen wife Williams, previously best known for her work on “Dawson’s Creek” (WB, 1998-2003). The two had a daughter, Matilda Rose, on Oct. 28, 2005, and were often photographed in the midst of a remarkably normal looking life in a Brooklyn neighborhood.

Ledger’s final 2005 film, "Casanova," was director Lasse Hallstrom's fictionalized account of the legendary lothario. It was easily one of the most disappointing films of the year, despite lavish production values and game performances by Ledger and the all-star cast. He bounced back with “I’m Not There” (2007), playing the “egomaniac superstar” incarnation of Bob Dylan in Todd Haynes’ unique character study of the iconic singer. Ledger and Williams got some unwelcome ink after their breakup that year, but Ledger rebounded with news that he appear as the legendary comic book villain, The Joker, opposite Christian Bale's Batman in "The Dark Knight" (2008); the second film in director Christopher Nolan's popular revival of the Caped Crusader's film franchise. But before the “Dark Knight” was released, tragedy struck on Jan. 22, 2008, when Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment. Authorities were called and arrived on scene, discovering no apparent foul play but numerous pills nearby and declared his body in "full cardiac arrest" upon their arrival.

AdSense in fashion for those who wear many hats

Here's another AdSense Story Contest submission, this time from
internet entrepreneur Shawn Collins of New Jersey.

Shawn has been an affiliate marketer since 1997, and joined AdSense in
2003 after he found it to be a natural extension for monetizing his
websites. He wears a lot of different hats as an Internet marketer --
not only is Shawn the co-founder of the Affiliate Summit conference,
but he also runs the Affiliate Buyer's Guide and is an affiliate

Before AdSense, Shawn relied on running affiliate ads and selling
space on a CPM basis. This could be hit or miss, as he would manually
try to place ads that were the best fit. As his sites grew, he would
sometimes forget about a time-sensitive ad, and that ad slot would
become wasted space. "With the contextually served ads from AdSense,"
Shawn says, "my advertising is always fresh and spot on."

Shawn also blogs daily about affiliate marketing and maintains an
affiliate manager resource site. His audience is savvy, since they're
internet marketers as well, so he considers it essential that
targeted, relevant advertising is served up to his visitors. According
to Shawn, "AdSense is an ideal solution for my varied web properties,
and I work with AdSense for content, AdSense for search, referrals,
and video units."

As Shawn mentions in his video, one of the highlights of his day
(sometimes many times a day) is when he logs in to his AdSense
account. He likens it to holding a lottery ticket as he waits for his
daily earnings to be revealed. "I try to guess the daily total, based
on my past performance, which makes the whole process a little more
fun. When I experiment with new placements or have a particularly good
day with my traffic, it's always a thrill to see my milestones
measured in AdSense commission spikes."

Macintosh hardware

The hardware of the Macintosh (or Mac) is produced solely by Apple Inc., who determines internal systems, designs, and prices. Apple directly sub-contracts hardware production to Asian OEM laptop manufacturers such as Asus, maintaining a high degree of control over the end product. Apple buys certain components wholesale from third-party manufacturers. The current Mac product family uses Intel x86 processors. All Mac models ship with at least 1 GB RAM as standard. Current Mac computers use an ATI Radeon, nVidia GeForce or Intel GMA graphics cards and include either a Combo Drive, a DVD player and CD burner all-in-one; or the SuperDrive, a dual-function DVD and CD burner. Macs include two standard data transfer ports: USB and FireWire. USB was introduced in the 1998 iMac G3 and is ubiquitous today; FireWire is mainly reserved for high-performance devices such as hard drives or video cameras.

philosophy professor

A philosophy professor stood before her class and had some items in front of her. When the class began, silently she picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks. She then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. She shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. She then asked the students again if the jar was full. They again agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. Now, said the professor, I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical check-ups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal. Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

But then... A student then took the jar which the other students and the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer. Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the jar truly full. The moral of this tale is that no matter how full your life is, there is always room for BEER.

• Use signatures: No matter how many forums you plan to join, always include your signature. Your signature adds a more personal touch to your profile. You can include your contact information in your signature so that your potential customers can get back to you.
• Don’t always talk Business: It is advisable that you don’t indulge yourself to sell your products or services constantly through your forum postings.

Advertising Tools That Do Not Work

It should be common knowledge for most advertisers on the net that they should not use any of the three advertising tricks of bad pop-ups, spamming or tons of sneaky ads that disable a computer screen. However, many advertisers do not take this advice. People that you are targeting with advertisement to can get very annoyed, and even down right mad if you try these antics. Also, consider the financial cost if you are thinking about employing these tactics. In the end, it is not worth the headache and risk. Read on about why these forms of advertising will not work.

A tight, well thought out marketing approach it the best way to promote your business. Do not think for one second that you will gain customers by using spam. Sending out bulk emails harvested from a spam list and then trying to forge where the email is sent from is tacky and deceitful. There are many federal laws against spamming and people can take it very seriously. They take it so seriously in fact that some advertisers went to court and the court forced them to pay a hefty fine for spamming email accounts. Shutting down someones email is not the way to gain business. Talk does fly at Internet speed, and your reputation will go down the tubes as word spreads about your annoying advertising.

The use of spamming software is very sophisticated today. If you want to take a chance with it, it would not be a very good idea though. The likelihood that you will even get a few good customers out of it is almost nonexistent. People enjoy your asking them to join your network or buy your product in a legitimate way. Financially opening up to involving a third party is certainly asking for trouble. By using some else email and causing a lot of heartache for them will open a complex issue for you.

The next form of advertising that will turn off a customer in a heartbeat is pop-ups. Today, there is not only the traditional pop-up but pop-under too. A barrage of pop-ups or quick pop-ups from under the screen will leave your customer insulted and angry. It does not matter how great your product is - do not do it.

In addition, a new marketing software technique slides pop-ups across the customers screen. This might sound non-intrusive, but think about this - what if they are in the middle of reading some information about your site? That is not helpful to your cause. It can be especially bad if they were about to click to the order page. Loss profits are never good for your wallet. If you are going to use them pop-ups for goodness sake, learn the software, and more importantly learn a bit about the human psychology of advertising. Look around for information on how and why people buy on the Internet, and apply that to your advertising and marketing campaign use.

Not only are spam emails, pop-ups and pop-under ads bad advertising techniques to use, but the tactic of high speed spawning is hideous and more than irritating to your potential customer. If you have ever thought about using it on a customer and have experienced it yourself, then go back and experience it again. You may have forgotten what it was like, although that is hard to see how you could forget it. A vicious attack on your customers browser button will not let the customer leave your site. Worse yet, they are forced to do an emergency shut down of their computer. Let us hope they have saved all information they were working on because ad after ad upon hundreds will over take their screen. Please do not use this software to try to increase your profits.

I hope that you will avoid using any of these three tactics in your marketing campaign. Using them will not bring the money in at a faster rate - in fact, just the opposite may occur. Take the time to use good marketing strategies. Learn what people appreciate in the way of business practices. Also, use manners and courteous along with a little shrewdness in your marketing strategy. There are many ways to do it. By exercising patience and learning your way around the Internet, you can bring in many very happy customers and a lot of money for you.

Perfect Stockbroker

Don't all investors wish they have one. While a few may get lucky in choosing their stockbrokers with minimal effort, the general rule is to flesh out your investment needs and do adequate research before hiring a broker. Picking a stockbroker is just as important as choosing your stocks. If you're going to entrust your money to these people, then you have to be certain that they have the intelligence, ability, and resources to do their job properly. Most importantly, make sure that they're not filthy felons who would run off with your money the first chance they get.

Stockbrokers can be classified into two types: the regular brokers and the broker-resellers. Regular brokers work for a brokerage firm and deal directly with investors while broker-resellers act as an intermediary between the investor and a larger broker or firm. The general opinion is that regular brokers are more reputable than broker-resellers since the latter may not have taken or passed all the necessary licensing examinations in order to qualify as a standard broker. This doesn't mean you should avoid all broker-resellers at all costs; you just have to be more careful in choosing resellers you'll be dealing with.

Regular brokers are further divided into two kinds: the full-service brokers and the discount brokers. If you want a more extensive array of services which includes financial advice, research and analysis, retirement planning, and investment tips, then a full-service broker is the one for you. These services will cost you a lot though; full-service firms charge higher commissions and fees than discount brokers. If you have the time and resources to do your own research on the stock market and you feel that you are fully capable of making intelligent investment decisions, then a discount broker should be enough to work for you. They simply execute your trades with no added frills and charge less than a full service brokerage.

In choosing a broker, it's better not to be content with any random person a brokerage firm assigns to you. Personally review his credentials. Choose someone with four to five years of experience and ask for a list of clients that you can contact for references. Check with regulation authorities if there have been complaints against him.

You also want a broker who doesn't have too many clients particularly if you decide to be an active trader. If your broker is too busy handling 300 other clients, you may often end up talking to a call center representative. There are instances, of course, when your concern can just as adequately be handled by a call center so don't abruptly close your account just because your broker wasn't able to answer all your calls. The point is, your broker should have sufficient time and focus to take care of your portfolio. However, if you're perfectly comfortable executing trades on your computer without having to talk to a human being, then you can pick out an online discount broker and execute your trading on the internet. Just make sure that the online broker has a competent customer service department to address your problems and concerns.

Finally, read the brokerage contract carefully and pay attention to the fine print. If the advertised fees seem to good to be true, look out for hidden costs or interests. Don't be afraid to ask questions especially if there's any part of the contract that's not clear to you. Remember, you're already taking on a considerable amount of risk by investing in stocks. You at least deserve to have a decent level of security in doing business with your broker.

How To Get Quality Web Content

The Most Important thing is Quality Web Content – And How To Get It.

Search engine optimization is crucial to get traffic to your membership site. You likely already know this because it’s difficult to avoid. Everyone and their brother has an idea about how to best go about getting your membership site listed high on the search engines. The truth is actually much simpler. The truth is that content always has been and is still the key to search engine optimization.

Good content is the best way to keep the search engines happy

What type of content must you have? The best, of course!

Okay, here’s what you really need:

Product reviews
How-to guides
Seminars / Training courses
Discussion Forums

Use unique content everywhere, or at least everywhere that you can.

The duplicate content issues have gotten a little bit out of hand and overall you can still use reprint articles and PLR content as a good way to get traffic to your site. However, try to include your own unique content as well. To be classed as unique, your webpage text needs to be at least 30% different to any other webpage on the internet.

Similarly, if you use PLR (Private Label Rights) material, alter this to make it unique content. Although less people will have access to this material, many of them will use the material as it is without making any changes. You’ll definitely want to change the Title Tag and perhaps the first few sentences of the article.

Ideally you want to create content for your membership site from scratch, to make it targeted and relevant to your audience. If you do not want to produce the content yourself, hire a ghostwriter.

Add new content constantly!

To maintain a high page rank with the search engines, webmasters need to regularly add new content to their websites.

This won’t be an issue for membership site owners, who will have to add new content frequently just to ensure their members continue to pay their subscription.

A blog is a great way to add content to your site on a regular basis. Post something on your blog at least once a week, but more often if possible. Encouraging your members to comment on your blog may give you ideas for follow up blog posts, and will also increase your search engine ranking as you will see below.

Encourage, entice, and even bribe your members to submit content.

Having other people submit content for your site will help to increase your traffic flow. Get your members to add content to your site in the following ways:

1. Discussion forums

Encourage them to post on discussion forums. You will need software that allows forum posts to be picked up by search engines to make this effective.

2. Blog comments

Allow them to add comments to your blog. Preventing blog spam may require specific software and give your members a code to enable them to post comments.

3. Product reviews

You could ask members to review your products after they purchase. Of course you need to make sure you have quality products to avoid negative reviews.

4. Articles and ideas

Ask your members to submit relevant articles and ideas to you site. Always give them credit for any material you use. Perhaps you could run a members’ contest and give a suitable prize or monetary reward each month for the best article or tip submitted.

Expensive Shoes

It seems to be something instinctive in all women. We seem to know which shoe is the most expensive. When it comes to buying shoes, women will lose all sense of financial sensibility when they see the "cutest pair of shoes" that they just cant live without.

It is not just an urban legend that women will continue to think of the shoe that got away long after the chance for purchase has passed. A woman will look at an outfit in a store weeks, sometimes months later and think about the "cutest pair of shoes" that would look just perfect with it. And woe to the woman who has the audacity to have actually bought the shoes and had the nerve to wear them in public where you can see how "really cute" they are.

It is a cold, hard fact that women spent almost 17 billion dollars on footwear for fashion between the month of October 2004 and October 2005. Think of all the good that money could do if it were channeled for charity, and not to finance the creation of an even more "cutest pair of shoes."

The Most Expensive Shoes For Women Worldwide

Some of the most expensive shoes that women have been coveting are made by Manolo Blahnik. His shoes become the must have shoes for all metropolitan women even if they live in Yellowstone Park, when they were featured on the popular HBO series Sex In The City. Manolo Blahnick is renowned for his painfully high heels that are accompanied by a similarly painful price tag. I think all women before they become feeble should own a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes.

Louis Vuitton has been a staple in fine women's footwear since the 1850's. He began by creating the most luxurious luggage that a Frenchman has been known to make, and he is also known for a fine ostrich leather boot as well. This Vienna Minimalisa High Boot can be bought for the cost of $4500.

Shoes by Chanel can be hard to resist. The timeless elegance of his collection has everything for a night out dancing in the hottest clubs to quilted, sedate ballet flats. Chanel's shoes are known to be worn beneath a power suit by day, to take a romantic lunch in the afternoon, and allow you to stroll through the shops in the evening all in the same shoe.

A shoe made by Salvatore Ferragamo is made with the belief that one's arch of the foot is one the most important parts of a person's body because it must support the weight of the entire body. Ferragamo shoes are well worth the expense when you compare the styles and comforts to other shoes carrying an even higher price tag.

Jimmy Choo is said to have the magic touch when it comes to creating the perfect shoe and handbag to make the main fashion statement rather than the clothing and jewelry. I know a lot of women who agree with his sexy approach to modern footwear that seems to transform with a bit of magic a plain old pump into the must have shoe of the season.

Free Website Traffic to Your Web Pages

Without traffic, your website is virtually worthless. There are many ways in which you can drive masses of website traffic to your web pages, but there are only two significant free ways in which to do that.

No, its not by joining forums or trying to use Web2 or social networking sites. Don’t believe everything you are told about these. I use them all. I belong to more forums that there are days in the month, and can count on one hand the number that actually provides me with a visitor to my website now and again.

If you belong to google Technorati, Facebook, Spurl, MySpace and every other social site in the top thirty list, they can be useful, but don’t provide a fraction of the traffic to your website that you can achieve in other ways, simply because that is not what these sites are for. The so-called Web2 sites, or social networking or bookmarking sites, are for social intercourse and allowing people an easy way to communicate with each other.

They are not to provide traffic to you, and many feel resentful that their good sites have been hijacked by internet marketers as a means of generating traffic and advertising to their websites. In fact a few such sites have died due to spamming by advertisers who had no interest in using the sites as they were intended to be used. There are other social sites that are currently at risk for the very same reason.

The way to get masses of free website traffic is through rapid listings on the major search engines, and then improving those listings until they are in the top 10 of the major two: Google and Yahoo. MSN is growing, and you will likely get listed there if you are already in the big two.

There are ways of doing this without having to hurt other websites, and that is to understand what the search engines are seeking when they crawl your web pages. Most will say that nobody knows what they are looking for, but that is nonsense. Perhaps the unsuccessful don’t know, but many do, and if you use that knowledge then you can beat, not only the spiders, but also your competitors.

In fact, to be realistic, nobody will ever beat the search engines since they will change their algorithms whenever they feel that they need to be changed in order to maintain or improve their service to their customers. Since these customers are the users that are seeking information, then the algorithms will change to improve the quality of that information. And rightly so!

Many people believe the search engine the enemy, and something to be beaten. Many SEO experts feel the same. The correct attitude to take is that the search engines are trying to meet the needs of their customers in the best way that they can. If you do the same with your web pages, then you and the search engines will have the same objective, and your task for a high listing will suddenly become a lot easier.

There are ways to achieve this without having to spend lots of money. Provide the information that would normally be logically sought by somebody using your web page keyword as their search term. Don’t fill your content full of the keyword, but provide genuine information right on topic. Each of your web pages are judged separately, so use them for different keywords and provide information on each that relates to that keyword.

Don’t use each page for the same topic. Think on what you want to find when you are looking for information online, and provide that to your visitors. If they are impressed they might bookmark your site, which might appear in the social bookmarking websites and be spotted by others interested in your topic. That is what such sites are for, not blatant advertising.

However, don’t forget how spiders read your pages. There are ways to optimize each web page for the spiders as well as for humans. Achieve the correct balance between both, and you will win. Fail, and you will lose. It is a simple as that.

The search engines are not ogres; that are not after you, or they would be after everybody and no websites would survive. They simply want to be sure that your information will meet the needs of their customers. That’s why meta tags are largely meaningless, since the crawler will make its own mind up based upon the content of your page.

That is also why internal lining strategies are of critical importance, since you can send spiders on whatever trail you want to lead them. However, you have to know what you are doing with that or you are likely to fail utterly and end up with your web page invisible online among the supplementary results rather than drive masses of free website traffic to your web pages.

widget bucks is as adsense replacement

widgetbucks is a replacement adsense.You can call it that WidgetBucks features pay-per-click shopping widgets that help their customers make money fast. They instantly display the most popular products based on buying trends of 100 million shoppers. Thus they are highly engaging, which means instant dollars for our customers.

Publishers and bloggers can get the ball rolling with WidgetBucks’ instant sign-up bonus. The instant signup bonus is $25. The minimum payout requirement is $50 so so $25 signup bonus gets you half way to your first check! The Widgetbucks referral program is awesome, publishers can earn full 10% of the commissions earned by the people they refer. Affiliates receive this 10 percent for the full 12 months after the new member joins. Payouts to affiliates are monthly, along with their commission checks.

Higher CPM and good PPC make it look like an Adsense Replacement.

The major flaw seen with widgetbucks is how they adjust their CPM. many publishers have complained that the more traffic they give them the lower the CPM. A publisher started with just 400 impressions a day and then moved up to 2000. At 2000 for 2 days the CPM reported was less than $2. At 400 it was quite a bit more. If widgetbucks offers a CPM of just $2 then adsense clearly beats them. Not to mention the CPM visible in the widgetbucks control panel is based on the pending amount which apparently is up for change. AdSense shows what it pays for the most part. So relying on widgetbucks as of now gives cold feet.

With WidgetBucks, you can start earning more money today — and keep your focus on publishing.

1. Higher eCPMs Hands down, WidgetBucks exceeds traditional publisher’s CPM targets of $1-$2
2. Content vs. ads WidgetBucks delivers engaging, contextual, rich-media widgets that complement your site content
3.Easy deployment Placing customized code on your site takes just minutes, and only MerchSense auto-optimizes your widget rotation based on performance tracking

*I like their animation,visitor appeal

Top Money Making Methods for Bloggers

Making money from blogging has become easier over the past two years.

You have 4 step to get money on line just check it out:
4:Make Money from Your Blog

Google's Adsense is one of the easiest and most popular ways to earn money by putting advertisements in your blog. Anyone who owns a blog (or a website) can open an Adsense account, place ads in his blog (or website) and earn money depending on the number of clicks on the Adsense links from the blog. Adsense advertisements fit themselves to the target audience of the blog. For example, if you write a blog on the popular game of pool, the ads would probably lead to online gaming sites. Therefore, the size of the revenue from your blog is subject to the appeal of the ads among your readers.

If blogging takes over most of your spare time and your community of readers still can't get enough of you, why don't you ask them to lay a few pennies at your donation box( LIKE PAY PAL)? Fundraising buttons, also known as tip jars, ask the readers to take part in the blog maintaining expenses or to help the blog owner to spare part or all of his day job to become a full time blogger, have been in use for a long time. Over the past few years, rumors on the effectiveness of this monetizing method supported the growth in its popularity among successful BLOGGER.

If your blog gets a lot of traffic, you can try to approach a certain company or a business and offer them to run an advertisement campaign (AUCTIONADSLIKE TEXT LINK ADS,WIDGETBUCKS,ADVERTLETS,PAY PER CLICK)at your blog. Many of today's companies appreciate the widespread potential hidden in popular blogs so you might even receive a positive answer.

This money making method has its pros and cons. Looking at the bright side, you get free products, content idea at no cost, plus you get paid to post. On the other hand, you can never be the same independent and free of commercial considerations blogger you used to be.

Additional ways to make money from blogging include joining an affiliate program such as(AMAZON .COM) in which by linking your readers to the business you receive an agreed share of their revenues; developing blogging related career which can range from a ghost blogger to newspaper columnist through business blogging counselor and merchandizing, whether by offering t-shirts with your blog logo for sale or by selling an e-book on your field of expertise.

santabanta jokes

Mental Deficiency
A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at a large gathering, and his blonde hostess broached a subject of which the doctor was most at ease.

"Doctor, would you mind telling me," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in someone who appears completely normal?"

"Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask a simple question, one which anyone should be able to answer without any problem. If he or she hesitates, that puts you on the track."

"What sort of question?" asked the hostess.

"Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?'" the doctor replied.

The blonde thought for a moment, then said, "You wouldn't happen to have another example, would you? I've never known very much about history!"

The Big Red One

Santa Claus needed a vacation. He decided to go to Texas because it was warm and he had heard that the people were friendly. As soon as he arrived in town, people began to point and say, "Look! The big red one! Isn't he someone famous?"

Santa thought, "Gee, I'll never get any rest if people start asking to sit on my lap and try to tell me things they want."

So, he decided to disguise himself. He bought a cowboy outfit complete with cowboy boots and cowboy hat.

"No one will know me now, I look just like everyone else!" he thought happily.

As soon as Santa started walking down the street people began to point and say, "Look! It's that famous Christmas personality!"

Santa rushed around a corner to hide.

"It's my beard!" he thought. "They recognize me because of my long white beard!"

So Santa went to a barbershop and had his beard shaved off.

"I really look like everybody else now!" Santa thought.

So he walked down the street with a big smile on his face. Suddenly a man shouted, "It's him! It's him! Look everybody!"

Santa couldn't believe it. He was sure that no one would recognize him. So Santa walked up to the man and said, "How did you recognize me?"

The man looked at Santa and said, "You? I don't know you, but isn't that four-legged guy with the big red nose behind you Rudolph?"

someone may see

A boy takes his girlfriend home after going out together.

When they reach the front door, he leans against the wall with one hand and says, "Sweetie, why don't you give me a blowjob?"

"What? You're crazy!"

"Don't worry, it will be quick, no problem."

"No!! Someone may see -- a relative, a neighbor..."

"At this time of the night? No one will show up..."

"I've already said No, and NO!"

"Honey, it's just a small blowie...I know you'd like it, too..."

"No! I've said NO!"

"My love... Don't be like that..."

At this moment, the girlfriend's younger sister shows up at the door in her nightgown with her hair totally in disorder. Rubbing her eyes, she says, "Dad says either you have to blow him, I have to blow him, or he will come down and give the guy a blowjob himself, but for God's sake, tell your boyfriend to take his hand off the intercom!"


At the end of the funeral service the pall bearers are carrying the casket out. When they accidentally bump into a wall jarring the casket. They hear a faint moan. They open the casket and find that the woman is actually alive.

She lives for ten more years and then dies. A ceremony is again held at the same place and at the end of the ceremony the pall bearers are again carrying out the casket.

As they are walking the husband cries out, "watch out for the wall!"
