Get your voice out there

For over eight years now I have enjoyed posting many different articles, documents and many more on the World Wide Web and it is quite amazing to see not everyone even does this (other than not wanting to, of course).

I was reading an article someone wrote today, an article that actually made me think about a few things which I already knew but in ways just could not be bothered with.

For many, many months now I have always wanted to update Tweaked for your Pleasure once a week. There is “always” something I can write about weekly but yet I do not. There is always that little bit of time on the bus, trains that I often have now and then in which I could use to write but I end up not doing so. I have always wanted to want to make sure all articles on Tweaked for your Pleasure was over 500 words and something you would enjoy reading each week.

ITS LOOKING AT ME

I am sure most people who reads Tweaked for your Pleasure knows that marketing is very important when you make a website so I will not go on and explain about it in much detail.

Without marketing your website will have to rely on people finding it themselves and then your site spreading via word of month (which Snat’s Blog did – I never understood website marketing when I started).

One of the “best” ways people would advice you to do is to use a service known as Google Adwords to help market your website. Well Google Adwords works well when you know how to use it but more importantly for this article, Google Adwords allow people to publish image adverts on websites.

Taurine – it gives you wings

Warning: Scientific based rant – Run while you can.

It’s that time again I clear up another issue I have been hearing about from people I know.

I have been hearing more and more people are thinking that the popular energy drinks known as Red Bull and many other energy drinks contains bull’s spermatozoa. I am not sure about why so many people I know are suddenly thinking this but let me clear it up for you.

I believe the reason this rumor started was all because of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) name of one compound that is found within those energy drinks 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid but lets call it by a far more common word you may have heard – Taurine.

Shut them up

It seems everyone either loves them or hate them but children are one of the most annoying things that exist on Earth. While children are needed to keep our genetic blood lines going but children should not have a free pass to do whatever the hell they like and get away with it.

The topic about children has came up before on Tweaked for your Pleasure but I just had to write and try just one thing. While I was in the British Library the other day just doing some peaceful research for a future blog articles (yes, I really was researching) and some child was placed right next to me screaming as loud as she could.

Using more then one domain with qTranslate

Update: I have been able to restore the config file. This is not tested on the latest version of qTranslate and WordPress but should work anyway.

This was a question I kept asking myself and couldn’t work out how to do it. qTranslate (WordPress plugin) would only allow you to use subdomains for the different languages (such as en.domain or he.domain) or using paths (such as domain/en/ or domain/he/). For a while, I used the path for the different languages on Tweaked for your Pleasure however subdomains or the path sadly wasn’t enough for me.

I wanted to be able to use two different domains for the two langauges. The main reason I wanted to do it is because I had the domains and I didn’t want to use subdomains. So, I wanted to see if anyone knew how to use different domains. On qTranslate forums there wasn’t any answers so I decided to have a look myself.

Google Adsense Ready Websites – is it a scam?

I am pretty sure that as you are ready this blog post now that you might see the Google Adsense that I have on this site and that it says “Buy Google Adsense Ready Websites”. Google Adsense is a program in which you can make money but to do so you need a website to place adverts on.

Making a website is easy as all you need to do is get a content management system like WordPress, put some content on from some free articles sites and whack on your Google Adsense and then watch as people come to your website from search engines clicking your adverts which will then make you that promised millionaire!
