Losing sight

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.

Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you.

AOC E2251FWU USB Monitor Review

AOC Monitor

AOC MonitorAOC Monitor
Product on the right

This originally was going to be a video review showing me unboxing the monitor, connecting it, installing the drivers and then showing you how it works but then I thought how hard that actually would be hard and a boring video. If you are in a rush then here is the review summed up – it works very well as long as you are using the two USB cable provided.

So let’s get the technical stuff out-of-the-way first. As you have read in the title this is a 21.5″ – 1920×1080 monitor that runs purely from a USB cable (it is a Y spilt USB cable so actually uses two USB ports on your system) which is very light and allows you to easily add a second monitor to any system that use a spare USB port.

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 รขโ‚ฌโ€œ 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.

If life was like a RPG

I am sure that most people on Tweaked for your Pleasure have played a role-playing game but have you ever stopped to think what life would actually be like if we actually lived in a RPG style game. Well, I did today and this is what I came up with…

In the morning you would wake up and then decide what clothes you want to wear. There would be a few factors to decide would not really be much about fashion as no one in this world would be more important than you in any way shape or form but also you would think how much defense and other stats it would give you. Once you have decided you would go downstairs.

Public Transport: For when you want to get pissed off

So many years ago (to lazy to research) that HM Government brought in a public bus transport and other transport systems so that the whole public is able to get around the whole country such as going to work, college and so fore, for a fee of course.

Snat-Where-I-live Before I get onto the actual rant, I am just going to talk about the most useless transport in England – The London Underground. Fuck sake is all I can say about that. Basically what you do is get a ticket and you can go to another station and at times you have to keep switching undergrounds to get to where you actually want to go.

Tis is the season … of gift voucher

Ahh yes, December the time in which everyone does the very last of their Hanukkah/Christmas/Whatever shopping. Sure, there are tons of great stuff you can buy at very low cost and that is may many do leave it until the end but naturally there is always that one person you can never remember and at the last day you remember that they exist and even worst, they gotten you something (or they are a child or something and you just have to buy them something for the sake of it).

  • Do not bother
  • Get that "last" minute gift

Do not bother

The first one is that you can just go "oh well" and then just don’t bother with this. When you do this, people tend to just moan at you or something like that and then for the next few months you are known as the person whom didn’t get that person something. Sure that isn’t a bad thing but not everyone likes being known like that. While children do tend to forget about it quickly, they are also the ones that don’t understand. But lets say for a few minutes that you didn’t get them something because you simply didn’t have any money to do so. Adults (well, most but not all) will understand and wouldn’t expect anything in return but merely to offer joy (one of the meanings of Christmas) but children do not understand.

Most children do not understand about money. In the research I have done, most children believes that that money "just comes out the hole in the wall" and unless taught at an very early age, a lot of these children will grow up believe money will just come to them and we have all seen what happens. But going back a bit, even if you just forgot about it that the children will still cry about it as they always think it is about them but anyway children isn’t the point of this article.

So if not bothering isn’t your thing, then there is one more option that never fails which now leads me too…

Get that "last" minute gift

I am sure we all know those shops that are always open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year and they always seem to sell those little toys for a couple of pounds. For children that are not your own, these tends to do (coming from experience) but children belongs to you or children that are children of family friends always seems to want that "one big gift" that cost always seems to go up each year. But for adults, they are always happy to just get something that they can unwrap.

So which leads me onto what both adults and children likes – gift vouchers. Children loves them because they are able to buy something that they want such as a game or something and adults love them because they can spend it on something they actually like. Gift vouchers also helps because it stops the likes of people going in a few days later returning that gift they didn’t like but just nodded because they had to be polite.

Also, with the e-vouchers becoming very well known with companies like Apple and Amazon, it got to the stage where what people actually want – you can just click and order online and get within a few minutes which you can then often print out or e-mail.

Sure, it defeats the feel of surprise but to be honest, it is only children that tends to like that but on the other hand, they tend to already know because they told Santa ๐Ÿ˜‰

This article is NOT RELATED to me trying to order a Amazon Gift Voucher last night for a gift for a female whom name I have used so many times in Tweaked for your Pleasure in quite a few "bad ways" I am surprised she even still says hi to me !
