How to keep blogging…

Many people when they start blogging start with the idea that they will be earning millions from advertising and that they can simply sit back and let everything happen. After a few weeks they start to work out it is not that easy and they give up even trying to carry on due to one main reason – they do not enjoy what they do.

Enjoying writing is the key to success when it comes to blogging but there is always a time where ideas just escape you and no matter how hard you think you are unable to come up with any ideas and this article hopefully will help you out a bit. So today you are going to learn a very basic method that can be used to find content to write about.

Becoming a laird

The Much Honoured Nemo of Great Barrier Reef

As of today I am pleased to say I am The Much Honoured Irvine Carbrey Pal Grant Mac Fhionnlaigh of Kincavel and you all …. wait someone else is already a laird of Kincavel and I can’t use it? Can I keep the Irvi… no okay.

So I have heard a lot more about people selling land which allows you to become a laird – I even looked back at it in 2007 and wondered if it was actually legal to actually buy a title. If you are wondering what I am on about check this link – Buy a Laird Title from a company you think would actually research it.

… so we survived Doomsday 2012

... so we survived

If you are reading this then you have access to the World Wide Web so listen up. We are the last few of the human race that has survived just like the Mayan said would happen. As you know either a black hole, the Sun blew up, Planet X hit us, zombies has returned, Jesus is here or the Internet isn’t working and civilization is on the edge of dying completely.

So the first thing you got to remember is to find a place to stay. Remember the most important thing to find is to get access to the World Wide Web so you can post online that you survived. The second thing is to want to make sure you take as many photos as you can of any weapons, any food caches you have online so people know it is safe to come to you.

Farewell Co.CC?

Update 5/03/2013 ~ I am noticing a lot of people are finding this website via Googling if Co.CC is going to return. Sadly I doubt it is going to come back at all.

For those with better memory than a gold-fish on crack, a year or so back I wrote an article about Co.cc and how you can use them with email and I also did a Co.cc referral review but it seems as of today they might have pulled the plug.

For those that may not know, Co.CC was a free sub domain service that gave you a sub domain (like snat.co.cc) and then gave you full DNS access so you could use it as you would a normal domain and the service worked great – even I used them for a few throw away domains but that is where the problem came in.

Is a tablet really worth it?

TFYP on an iPad

Tablet PCs are a very funny thing, they have been around for so long and no one seen a point in it but suddenly when the Apple iPad was released that everyone suddenly finds a use for it but honestly is it any good?

Well being one to always hoard new technical stuff that when it first came out “main stream”, I got myself a cheap Android tablet and while they was fine for a couple of things they basically sucked. While that put me off tablet PCs for ages, within the last few months I got myself a more “high-end” Android tablet which is what this article is based on.

Legal issues in setting up an internet based radio station

As you may know I currently been doing a radio station called Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure and I asked a friend of mine called Dave over at Amazing World Music (yep, same person that provides the music in my videos) about the legal side of it and lets just say there was barely anything out there when it comes to online radio in the United Kingdom.

With that in mind, Dave went out researching and has compiled a report on what he found out. All credit goes to him and hopefully it helps someone else. Just remember none of us are lawyers and well, we can be wrong. Any comments, different view points or if anyone actually is a lawyer in this field – please do comment as we would love know the law exactly.

Part 1: How to do a Let’s Play

Okay so you have seen a series like Playing Games with Snat and maybe you have thought – I would love to do one of these myself and have looked up and seen there is millions of ways to do it. Well you are in a bit of luck as due to me not having anything to speak about, I decided to talk about how I got around the problems I had.

I should note that I went down a hardware route as I do console games but I do also use the same setup for PC games in the future. This guide will assume you have nothing so far, not even a PC, but relax as I will even explain that. I will also note the price for it all but it may not exactly be cheap but where possible, I will link to cheaper or free places.

Farewell Metal Gear Online

Silo Sunset  (Esper Girl)

Silo Sunset (Esper Girl)

I would guess that you have quite likely at least heard of a gaming series called Metal Gear Solid and if not well there is Wikipedia for that. Against I am sure what most people think, I am not really into the online gaming thing that much but there has always been one game that I have always enjoyed playing and that was Metal Gear Online 2 for the Playstation 3.

Having been released many years ago now, Metal Gear Online was originally a fine example of how to do an online shooter based game and while it was not graphically as good as other Playstation 3 games that has been released now, it always had that little special thing about being a stealth action game and all that stuff.
