The current state of the global economy has shot the U.S. unemployment rate up - waay up. As a result, more people are willing to commit crimes in order to provide for themselves or their family. Just this year, two houses that share the street I live on were broken into. Based on the alleged stolen items, the crooks appeared to have prior knowledge, but I'm not taking any chances.

Previous posts explained why I believe BitTorrent is a problem, but like most technology, BitTorrent does have a worth while purpose. BitTorrent for enterprise network usage isn't anything new, but according to TorrentFreak, a Dutch University finally decided to use the peer to peer protocol for software patch distribution. Naturally, the decision makers at the university were reluctant to implement the technology as a result of the negative press surrounding the protocol, but after seeing BitTorrent in action, they quickly changed their mind.

Nothing really special in this post other than a list of sites that display their Entrecard widget above the fold, all of which are conveniently organized by average load times. How awesome is that? Before I share the URL, I'd like to thank Walt from 365tofreedom.com. He's the genius that came up with the idea and made it happen. I wish him luck with his Internet marketing journey (he's trying to quit his day job, hence the domain 365 To Freedom) during 2008, but will probably ask him to stop auto-spamming my posts with comments about his ebook or whatever it is. For now, my rusty muffler is doing just fine, Walt. Midas said so.
So you want to earn some cash on-line but don't think you're smart enough? Maybe you've heard of BANS (build a niche store) but can't afford to dish out the $100. Either way, these are both silly reasons. If you're reading this blog, you're smart enough, and anyone willing to pay $100 for that software isn't very wise with their cash. This post will outline, step by step, how to setup your own on-line store and start generating cash within thirty-days of going live.
If you have a blog, graphics portfolio, e-commerce, or any other type of site, I'll take a look at several key factors and provide my personal opinion on what's beneficial, and what needs to go. However, as with any "free" offer, there's a catch.
After thirty minutes of being a member of Entrecard I've received 16 unique visitors. That's huge compared to the measly 6 I've received from Blogroll within the last couple months. If you haven't already, goto Entrecard.com and sign up for a free account. Either upload a custom 125x125 digital business card of your choice, or use one of their pre-exisiting templates. Put the code on your sidebar and watch the traffic roll in.
