So You Think You Can Dance on Fox

Posted by techie on June 30, 2006

I’m not sure who else is watching the show “So You Think You Can Dance” http://www.fox.com/dance, but I love it. True, I love dancing, but the show is pretty interesting. All I can say is that the hot blonde chick is going to win for sure. She’s the cousin of the mormon. I don’t know her name so I’ll go look it up now. Her name is Heidi Groskreutz. I think she’s the best dancer of the bunch. I’m also surprised her cousin Benji is so popular(according to the message boards).

I don’t think it will be the blockbuster that American Idol(same producer) is, but it is well worth watching.

Pay Per Post – Making Money Blogging

Posted by techie on June 30, 2006

I found an interesting new concept today on Digg that is called Pay Per Post http://www.payperpost.com. It is a very interesting concept to think that you could make money blogging for other people. I think there is some good potential for advertisers and bloggers to make cash doing something they love.

I do agree that it may dilute the blogosphere, but I think that is really already done by all the crazy web pages with a zillion links out there that are killing search engines as is. Look at Digg and you’ll see tons of talk that Google doesn’t even get it right. Bill Gates has even said that right now our search capability is weak and that in time we’ll be able to ask a question and get the answer as opposed to a list of answers. Payperpost.com did say this:

It’s up to you to pick the Opportunities that best suit you. If it doesn’t feel right, if you don’t own the product, or if you can’t be honest we ask you to pass on the Opportunity.

I agree with this. If I’m against a product I wouldn’t post about it either. I’m going to try it out and see how it goes.

Amazon.com Does Groceries?

Posted by techie on June 20, 2006

I read a nice post about Amazon starting to sell groceries. I think this is a good idea because competition is always a good thing. However, it would seem odd to me to buy groceries from Amazon. It just doesn’t feel right yet. Here’s an excerpt of what they have:

The list includes a whole bunch of harder-to-find natural and organic, gluten-free and vegan products, and groceries are eligible for Super Saver and Amazon Prime Shipping.

Keyword Search Tool

Posted by techie on June 4, 2006

This is an old site, but I think it should be revisted more often, because it is a great resource for figuring out which keywords you should be using to get in the top of Google.  It is an offer from Overture that allows you to put in a keyword and then see how many times that word is searched on the internet for a month.  It also gives you an idea of other terms that are related to it.  Try it and you might just find out that no one cares about what you write about.
