Talking About Dollars Attached to Blog Posts...

I am thankful I chose such a theme like this in my blog, webbie related stuffs. From paid posts only, I have earned a considerable amount of dollars.. As I have posted in this blog entry here, I have displayed and shared some of my earning options online. Again, mine is only a side earning, I do not have plans ever to go full time earning online.

paid posting, payperpost, paid post, earning online, blogging, blog earning, blog monetising, ppp earnings, paid posts online, paid blogging
Although that earning ($247) is NOT big but it is NOT so bad either, right? Plus the fact that I do not have a google PR in this blog.... i still get that earnings...

If you are a member of any of the paid posting sites and you do paid posts such as me, you know that people who do say paid posting is bad for a blog's health have not really tried it or failed in it. As for my opinion, I can say that: that statement is ONLY true if the blog is earning in another way. However, if a blog or site is not earning anyway, getting into paid posting is NOT a bad idea. In this blog where this post is written, I have earned at least $200 in paid posting only. Not counting the thousands of earnings from other sources, that is another story partially tackled in this blog entry again.

Opportunity and Real Cost
Don't assume I sound like an economist here. I sound like accountant and auditor though, and that fact I can admit. Because I am, in real life! As for your monetising options, all you have to do to be in or out in a paid posting industry is to consider the overall bad or good that it can cause to you and your blog. What your WebbieGurl is pointing out here is the fact that you might wait too long before joining, and before you know it, you have spent so much of the OPPORTUNITY cost (OC) in there. OC is not literally money but IT can be converted to some considerable amounts if you have acted wisely given some situations.

Earning Much? Make Money in Blogging Blog?
I am NOT! This BLOG is NOT a Make Money Online Blog or Earn Thousands Fast.. I hate that assumption and the deceit that goes around that line. I am telling you that everything requires hard work and perseverance, and sometimes, a little investment.

earnings online, bidvertiser earnings, gain from bidvertiser, online earnings, earnings, blog earning, blogging, site earning, weblog earnings, gain from blogs, gain online, online money, online bucks
This is just to inform you that online earning is very possible. This is NOT from blogging but from online effort. From blogging, read more to gain as well...

Paid Posting Is Bad?
Thus, if you have decided to make paid posts, I have various suggestions for you. You have two options here, whee I am a meber as well and I do earn too. See my respective earnings and read the captions and the choice is yours where you want to join. If you leave a message here after acting, that would be better as I do my best to help you in any possible way I can.

PayingPost: I just joined this blog few days ago and have not seen its earning power yet. I suggest you join and refer your friends because this is a relatively paying post site and not too many are in yet. One eferral here will allow you to earn $15 each. I can say that is NOT bad.

BidVertiser: I only earned $28 from this and have received this amount already. No regrets joining. They pay also if you refer some of your buddies.

paid posting, payperpost, paid post, earning online, blogging, blog earning, blog monetising, ppp earnings, paid posts online, paid blogging (click image to join) Many know about this already, pay per post. It is pretty effective as you can see in my earning above. If you have been rejected before, you can sign up again, there is no harm in trying. I bet your traffic and posts have become better than then. Good luck! Click the little image to register.

How To Link and Properly Tag Photos for Keywords?

After very detailed discussion on how to resize photos, be it enlarging or reducing the size, I am back here with another topic on blog images. This time however, this will be on linking the photos and making useful tags on it. Why am I sharing this with you? This is because I really found this useful for your photos, especially if they are unique, to be searchable and when it can be searched and if the description is correct, people searching from the search engine would then click it, AND if it is properly linked, a click from the search results would mean a click to your page. And what does that mean? A click to your page means improved traffic and better blog health. We all want it.

enlarging images, how to make photos look bigger in blogs, making photos and images look bigger, resizing image in blog posts, resizing photos, bigger blog photos, bigger blog images, bigger blog pics, bigger photos in blogs, resized blog photos, blogging tips, photo tips, photo techniques in blogsYou can see here the difference between the raw code that was pasted and what I exactly used in my blog. The blue text means they are original from the copied code while the RED texts indicate the possibility of resizing (adding that code)to the original html code.
The color MAGENTA texts indicate edited link (where the page will open once the image is clicked) and the words after the alt indicates the keywords or tags..

I am using blogger platform for all my blogs so I am more familiar how it works when linking and tagging photos. However, if there is a photo or image hosting website where the photo was originally uploaded (such as flickr or photobucket), or, if it is allowed to copy the url of the originally web published photo, the process is even simplier. Putting images or photos in the posts can either be done manually by typing the urls and codes or by copying the codes and pasting it in the post editor of the blog or the website. I prefer copying the codes directly and then adding/changing some more items if it is necessary and would prove helpful, such as the alignment, size specifications, where it is linked and adding the tags and keywords.

In summary, what are the benefits of tagging and linking photos and images?

1. Photos or images becoming indexed searcheable.


2. Searched photos will lead to the linked page

3. Linked page opened is another increase in traffic

4. A well written article about the photo can hook the searcher giving way to increased readership


5. Linked page will be indexed easier as well because the images' keywords are pointing to that certain page/link.
The following images and captions will instruct the procedures in linking and tagging images.

PART A: Using Image Hosting Sites/Services


1. Upload your image

2.
In case of photobucket, the name automatically becomes part of the keyword/tag in the codes, so if you put all the tags and keywords in the name field (in photobucket), each tag/keyword separated by comma, no further manual tagging is needed later on.

enlarging images, how to make photos look bigger in blogs, making photos and images look bigger, resizing image in blog posts, resizing photos, bigger blog photos, bigger blog images, bigger blog pics, bigger photos in blogs, resized blog photos, blogging tips, photo tips, photo techniques in blogs
This is the image and the possible links for various usage. Just copy the link you want at the "Image Link Code" and paste it in your post. You may copy it as well from the album summary but I clicked that photo from my album to put emphasis on it and where the codes can be found. I use the html code rather than the other three because of practicality and ease of editing because html code is more complete than any of the others.

3. See the generated code, copy and paste it into your blog post. I suggest you copy the HTML code over the others because only a little revision is needed when the html code is ready. The same is true with other image hosting services, if the html code is provided for the image, better choose it.

enlarging images, how to make photos look bigger in blogs, making photos and images look bigger, resizing image in blog posts, resizing photos, bigger blog photos, bigger blog images, bigger blog pics, bigger photos in blogs, resized blog photos, blogging tips, photo tips, photo techniques in blogs4. Replace the reference url with the specific url where the image/photo is located Do not only use the main url such as "http://www.webbiestuffs.com" but use the very exact url where that image located. Like the image you see below, when you click it, it will direct you to the exact location where it was originally posted, and there, aside from the image, an article was also written and that is where readership is increased through images.
http://www.webbiestuffs.com/2008/10/how-could-it-happen-i-am-not-that.html

5. You will see that the contents of the alt= " " should have been the tags that was previously enteres as the title of the photos in photobucket upload. HOWEVER, if you have not used the photobucket service, the alt=" " area is the place to put the tags and keywords that you have for the image. Just insert your tags in between the (open and close) quotation marks. Just like the photo you see, the tags are: "Blogging, Page Rank, SEO, Site Traffic, Technorati" or anything relevant to the photo or the article where the photo is located.


PART B: Uploading Using the Blogger Photo Uploader

1. Upload the photos/images


2. Look for the code and if you want to make it look bigger (than the blogger's large image) or, if you want to make it smaller than the blogger's "small image" or, if you want to put specific dimension, refer to this post on resizing images.

3. The same procedure as above on replacing the links and tags, your cue is on the beginning, replace that

How To Resize and Make Photos and Images Look Bigger in the Blog Posts?

html tricks making bigger images, photos, pictures in blogsBlah..blah..blah... First of all, I have news and some babbling for all of you my dear (re)dears I would like to tell everyone to ignore my previous post. I am back to circulation of bloggers. When I got back with a good connection, I was surprised to have attained one of my goals: the Technorati Authority of at least 100. I do hope it just go on rising rather than going down or fluctuationg down and up and down and up again.

One of the fellow bloggers just made me think of posting how to make bigger photos in your blog posts or any posts you do online using html codes. I have seen so many small photos around considering I visit too many blogs in a day. I know that NOT all of us want bigger photos but I also know that others want it but they just do not have any idea how to. Just like me when I was starting out in blogging, the biggest image that I could put in a post is 400px by 400px which is the "large" photo as defined by Blogger photo uploader. I have always wanted to have bigger and more defined photos for most of my posts, where the details are shown.
canals, the hague, netherlands, tallest building the hague, tower in the hague, the hague canal
Sample resized image to perfectly fit this post area. If you click the image, it will take you to its original location, which is part of linking images that will be noted in my next post. Stay tuned.

I want to share a knowledge that was previously shared to me as well: how to make the photos bigger. How I learned this was easy: i asked someone who posted so big and so clear photos how he did it and he replied to my PM to him in EC and I got it! That was one way and later on, I learned the tricks and discovered other ways to make it bigger.

How To Make Photos Bigger Yet Lighter?
Naturally, bigger photos have bigger space/bytes in it and so it, more often than not, slows down the page load. To make the photos lighter in the blog, and at the same time make these photos possible to be enlaged, I use free photo hosts (photobucket for me). There are many around there like flickr, photobucket, snapfish, etc, In case of photobucket, that is where I start.

1. Upload the photos to a free image hosting service (i.e., photobucket, flickr, snapfish, etc)

2. Copy the url or html code generated and provided for that image and include it in the post.

3. Resize the photo or image to your desired size

Learn From These Images and Captions
As an example, see that image above. That is an image i put in my other blog, and as you can see, if you click it, it goes where it was originally posted for a purpose. Here, it is posted as an example.

See the following images and I do wish you learn better as you see how with the images and the captions.

This is the image and the possible links for various usage. Just copy the link you want at the "Image Link Code" and paste it in your post. You may copy it as well from the album summary but I clicked that photo from my album to put emphasis on it and where the codes can be found. I use the html code rather than the other three because of practicality and ease of editing because html code is more complete than any of the others.

enlarging images, how to make photos look bigger in blogs, making photos and images look bigger, resizing image in blog posts, resizing photos, bigger blog photos, bigger blog images, bigger blog pics, bigger photos in blogs, resized blog photos, blogging tips, photo tips, photo techniques in blogsYou can see here the difference between the raw code that was pasted and what I exactly used in my blog. The blue text means they are original from the copied code while the RED texts indicate the possibility of resizing (adding that code)to the original html code. Take note that the "height" and "width" were not in the original code, just add it and put your own size. Regular blogger size give a maximum of 400px while this one, you can see that I even extended the height to up to 1000px. Just see the difference in the sample image above.

The other new/colored texts in the new code, you will learn what are their purpose in my next post about linking photos and giving them keywords for them to be searchable in search engines.

However, I don't directly upload through blogger as I have said earlier, they might overload the site and make my pages load very slow. For blogger uploads, just see the image how easy it is to resize the images.

Can you see the difference between the resized image that I have posted for clarity up??? There is a whole ocean of difference, right???

Take note however that you cannot resize bigger that your blog space, especially the width limit. As for my pages (from this blog), the maximum width that I can allow is 530px. If you have any questions, of if this post is too vague, I always accept constructive criticism. Hope you learned.

NO, I am NOT Away, Nor AM I Busy

Folks, I am NOT abandoning any of my blogs. But as you have seen, there have been some lost traffic and unupdated blogs for days due to reasons that are beyond my control. I have been using this International Internet provider since I arrived here in the Hague but now, it seems that their paypal checkout counter is having problems. With this internet service that I use, which is actually called fon and can be visited at http://www.fon.com, all I need to do is pay with credit/debit card or with paypal when I needed to connect.

stranded, stuck, stagnant, blog problems, bloggingStranded...

The problem happened just this weekend and we could not do anytthing about it for the moment. Having a connection (aside from FON) in this country means waiting at least 23 days before installation and that is a lot of time to wait.

All I wish this time is to have the paypal checkout of FON be back soon (The checkout services for credit and debit cards are offered by Paypal too). I can still access blogger blogs but other platform blogs, I cannot. Why is that? Because FON is sponsored by google and skype. Thus, all googly webs and skypie websites are accessible without problem. I am still trying to post the best way I can. In fact I can, but I have to admit I hate to post with a lost readership and exposure because I would have lesser visitors. My traffic last week was ranging from 350-500 a day and now, it runs to just around a hundred... sigh.. so bad.

I watch too much youtube videos instead these days because as I said, google is FON's sposnor and i guess youtube is related to google and that is why. But at this moment, I just want to post as usual, after realizing that soon, in a month and a half time, it will be the google PR update and I do think it is best to have some pages indexed at least.


And as an instruction, If you want to comment in any of my posts in any of my blogs, and if you have blogger platform blogs, please use that url instead so I can comment back faster.

More power to bloggers and I do hope I would get the connection back at home. So long bloggers!

Web Hosting Geeks? It Would Be My Choice!

I am not paying hosting this blog with a fee yet... but if I do, I have found my choice already.

Obviously, I am still with the free hosting blogger platform. However, with my blog buddy, hosting this blog with a paid host is always an open option and of course, that too gives more opportunity to this blog if in case. Why? Isn't it obvious enough that most of us, if not all, actually want more flexibility and independence in our websites and blogs?

With this dream in mind, and I know you do have this dream too, I want to share one of the cool sites around providing hosting to those lots of us who want the website hosting, which i can tell is also cheap or affordable. But if you don't want it cheap or affordable, Buddy, you also allowed to have a lot more flexibilities at Webhosting Geeks' cool hosting categories.
These are the samples:
Isn't Webhosting Geeks great, providing all those classifications? I suggest you take a peek at the site too and see what cheap and wonderful hosting-related stuffs and services it offers

When Some Scripts Stop the Page to Load, Fix It!

I have been through it. Two of my blogs has these two scripts distracting my readers or visitors and I have to admit it caused me traffic and redearship. I had an adobe script notice freezing in this blog before and a pop up whole page ad in this blog . While I explained in this post how to remove the whole page popup, I have not written my experience on that adobe movie script warning that was so irrititating and freezing my blog's page load anytime a page is viewed by anyone, anywhere, anytime, anyhow!

A script in this movie is causing  Flash Player to run slowly, A script in this movie is causing  Flash Player to run slowly warning, video script problem adobe script problem, freezing blog caused by scripts,

I had to see what was causing that script but I had difficulty. I searched online and some of the advices included some, which, might be advisable in your case if you have the same problem with movie or video script causing your page to load, but in my case, it was the second situation below:

1. Too big image size. I read this was an effective way to remove the script. One webmaster had the same problem and that problem was solved by reducing the size of the pictures or images in the pages or the site. It was effective per feedback. It was NOT the case for my blog however because my images are hosted differently and NOT hosted by blogger nor Picassa Album. I use photobucket.

2. Real video scripts in the site or blog's configuration. In the forums I have read, video scripts are indeed the cause. And that was the case for me. I had a script in my blog, which, unfortunately, not running properly anymore. I had to locate that script and for certain reason, it was not easy. It was a geocounter stat I had. I used it before in the blog that had problem but I never knew it would cause problem afterwards. I just thought it disappeared naturally without me knowing it was already becoming and causing a problem that time. IT EVEN CAUSED MY ENTRECARD ACCOUNT TO BE DELETED!

What I Did?
Just a piece of advice per experience, if you do not have any idea where the problem can be located or pin pointed, simply go back to your html codes or scrips you added in your blogs or sites. For sure it is there, it just need a little bit of scanning. Usually, try in your sidebar, leaderboard, bottom board or any place where you can possibly put that code. Of course sometimes it can be found in the html body itself but that was not my case. I use adding page element in my blogger platform blog when i put codes or scripts and that helped me locate it easily after realizing that it was from one of my codes/scripts that I previously added added.

Why it caused problem?
The situation is explained by Adobe itself here. In my case, I have seen that my script was broken and that it why it was NOT running anymore and IT CAUSED a great deal of trouble to my blog, In short, it was my fault after all.

Trying To Earn From Ad Displays Again and I am a Bit Richer This Month!! Yeehah!

The month of November made its promising start for me. I am just excited with the turnout of events. I have somw unexpected earnings that the payment of which I received on the last days of October or the first week of November. I wrap them up here.

earnings online, bidvertiser earnings, gain from bidvertiser, online earnings, earnings, blog earning, blogging, site earning, weblog earnings, gain from blogs, gain online, online money, online bucks
I have stopped writing and earning for quite sometime because of their delayed payments but I am glad they are all in now. See the yellow highligh for the recent earnings... Not bad I guess?

What I am trying to say is, as long as you have the initiative, online earning is very possible. I have always pointed this out. But of course, as fo my level, my online earning is of course an extra. I work part time during the day (3 hours) and earns my living from my work. I am in search for a full time job as well. But my online earnings make me happy and give me extra buck. Honesty, I can never think an online earning can support me to live ever, but to have them as extra, the savings is saved for that matter.

This previous month of October, around the middle of the month, I received a notification from BidVertiser that I would receive payment at the end of October. As you see, I never run BidVertiser ads here, right? Nor in in my site here, not in this site either. It made me think how can I earn? Then I remebered I had abandoned sites, not updated, no more new posts and no traffic promotion. Well, this is the site, indeed that still run the BidVertiser ads and indeed gave me a little earning. As you can see from the image, the earning is NOT that big but from a site I never paid attention, this makes me happy. And now I revived that site again, posting new entries again and promoting traffic.

bidvertiser earnings, bidvertiser, online earning, ad earning, running ads earn, bidvertiser gain, money form bidvertiser
Not so bad, as well! Especially coming from an abandoned site of mine.. ^^

Moreover, my writing jobs had paid out. I had long been protesting for the late payments but finally it arrived and it was quite an earning! And the good thing? I received them with the dollar a bit stronger against Euro! That multiplied the earnings actually compared when I received them before October's last week or this month.

I am experimenting on projectwonderful if I can earn with this scheme. For now, my earnings is only in the $5 level but I am trying to see ways if one can earn on them. After all, they are just passive earnings that a publisher like me has nothing to lose. I do hope though that when November ends, I can at least withdraw $10 from the earnings there. Hopefully!

In short, you can earn.. And this post, is to encourage everyone that the money is online and as long as you have the guts to get it, you can get it! But again, this earning is too far to make me live with it allone. Real work is still important and a need for me!

Another Internet Protection Item: Help Filter Those Porno Sites

After my very previous post on email security and authenticity, this time I share again to you something that relates to our online safety. Sometimes there are just a clear need in filtering some kinds of websites. The most we know are pornographic sites and we all know the reason why. Among others are:

antiques, italy, italian stuffs, italian, italian antique, trullo, trulli, trullo housepornographich sites filter, improper sites, inappropriate websites, internet filter, filters, internet protection, online protection, internet protection software, online filters software

1. Inappropriate for children


2. Inappropriate in work area

3. Inappropriate in public areas

Don't get me wrong as I have nothing against these sites. They exist because of popular demand but at times, there are just this need to block and filter them. And the sad side? Internet filters really do not make that protection 100% of the time! Why I said that?

A recent US Government study concluded that even the best filters could only filter/block 91% of adult websites, leaving 9% or more unfiltered. Those numbers become more important when you realize that 9% of the available Internet pornography could be as many as 100 million pornographic images and videos! And worse, if the individual in front of the computer knows how to bypass it or deactivate it, well then the filter's performance drops to 0%.

How Do You Solve This Internet Filters Issue?

If you are serious in filtering the websites that can be opened in your screen, a pornography-detection tool like SurfRecon is one good and important help. It provides a level of detection combined with the filter's protection: PROTECTION + DETECTION is the ultimate solution for internet safety.

The pornography-detection tools (software) allow users to scan a computer system and see what the filter missed. If a child or spouse is using an anonymous proxy or some other application to sneak a peak at adult content--or if they are simply using a CD-Rom, external hard drive, or thumb drive to hide porn on your computer--SurfRecon will find it!

So remember, filters alone cannot get the job done. Protection + Detection. Wny not try and get SurfRecon pornography detection tools and see how it works?

Learn the Real Facts about Websites: Be Safe Then

I have received this article from my newsletter last Sunday. Honestly, I like the very brief content that it has and I would like to share them to all of you. The newsletter is an educational one, coming frm a very good library database that I use for educational purposes, Questia.

online safety, internet safety, safe search, iternet credibility, internet facts, internet, internet truth, internet manipulation, online facts
I share the same sentiments as the online search expert mentioned in the following original quoted article and here I am, sharing this all of you who uses the web for educational and reference purposes. We all better be careful with the data we gather and the information we create. I have to say that Internet is NeveR safe! I always hold this contention.

The following is the original article from my newsletter. I quote it below:
There's a staggering amount of information available on the Internet... and a lot of it is inaccurate. Online search expert Tara Calishain calls them "Internet facts" and says, "They're not necessarily true."

"They're distributed," she explains in her book Web Search Garage (Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall PTR, 2005), 111, "via both the Web and e-mail. There are a couple of resources that are invaluable for checking out these sites, but in addition to these resources there are three e-mail characteristics that should raise a red flag for you:

You're asked to forward the e-mail to everyone you know.

The e-mail describes a problem — like a particularly horrible virus — that if it were legitimate would be on every cable channel as an emergency news flash, including the Golf Channel.

The e-mail promises you some kind of reward for forwarding/replicating the mail."

Here are three of the resources Calishain recommends for checking out Internet sites and facts:

Snopes — http://www.snopes.com – "Snopes is the first site I go to when I want to check out something that someone has sent me. It's never let me down."

Vmyths — http://www.vmyths.com – Use this one, she says, to learn the truth behind virus warnings.

Evaluating information found on the Internet — http://www.library.jhu.edu/researchhelp/general/evaluating/index.html — This site from The Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University "discusses the criteria by which scholars in most fields evaluate print information, and shows how the same criteria can be used to assess information found on the Internet."

Kill that Irritating Whole Page Auto Pop Advertisement!

The title may also be known as: I Solved that Inline Text Problem and the Full Page PopUp from Adbrite Part 2 as I have the part 1 for this.. This post is the continuation of my discovery of some things on my adbrite ads. I already posted on how to remove or disable the inline text ads two posts ago or you can see that solution from THIS POST HERE.

pop up, auto pop up, auto adbrite pop up, pop ad, auto ad pop, auto advertisements, auto advert pop, adbrite ads, inline text problem, adbrite auto pop, adbrite auto ad, auto ad, auto pop advrtisement,kill, born to kill

This time, I would like to share how to stop that whole page ad that shows up everytime a page is clicked or reloaded on your/our sites or blogs. Luckily, I paid attention and I was able to remove mine which is, I have to admit, even myself is very annoyed by it. It is that whole page ad popup that steal the time from everyone who loads my page for around 10 seconds or so, very irritating, very annoying, kills the fun of blogging, grrr...grrrr.., etc.. right? This can kill traffic onestly as I have a lot of fellow blogger buddies complaining about both inline ads and auto pop up until I discover this solution. Sometimes the ads are not that wholesome for some other ad providers (but in Adbrite, I hìgot wholesome pops at least...^^).

Before, in order to remove this forced ad or popup, I have had to delete my ads itself but now, I have found out how to run the adbrite ads without inline text ads, and without this annoying popup though as of posting date, I do not have adbrite ads running around.

Maybe a lot of bloggers around have already posted about this but I am not aware as I have just discovered this solution lately and have not searched online on how to remove this. If you are an EntreCard member, this is a big possibility that your blog be deleted if you have this auto pop-up that has to stop every visitor or anyone who tries to load a page in you site/blog. Why I say that? Because a blogger friend of mine who has auto-played music got her account deleted for that auto music playing and this auto pop is no better than auto playing music, right? The solution is presented in the folowing instructions and image.

1.Remove all your adbrite ads (that is if you don't earn from it, that would not hurt).
This was the thing I did for this blog actually. Not much earnings, why not take it away? But of course, I am open to the idea that I might reinstall now that I know how to make the whole page pop up disappear despite the running of the ads.

2. Disable that Whole Page Ad Option.
This is a more flexible option than the first if you are earning and/or want to retain the adbrite ads. This actually involves replacement of the current ad codes with a new one where the whle page ad option is disabled. It therefore involves signing in to the adbrite account, creating a new ad zone with a disabled whole page ad option, plus generating the codes and installing these codes as replacements to the just removed adbrite ad codes. See the short tutorial here and notice the red squares I used to emphasize stuffs:

pop up, auto pop up, auto adbrite pop up, pop ad, auto ad pop, auto advertisements, auto advert pop, adbrite ads, inline text problem, adbrite auto pop, adbrite auto ad, auto ad, auto pop advrtisement
Notice the only you that is required is to UNCHECK that option. We just miss it out when we make out ads, especially if we are new.

This applies to adbrite specifically but I am not aware about other advertisement providers if they have the same auto pop ups but the idea is the same, just look at the options. I just hope this helps everyone, especially thos who have been deleted from entrecard due to this reason..


Zenni Optical Follow-Up! This is My Third Update!

Can you imagine I am stuck on eyeglasses? That is because after knowing this Zenni Optical, it is the site I always go to whenever a need arises. It is actually the site I know fully well already plus the fact that it as been featured in Clark Howard Show before and in fact it has a new story in the show again. Read that funny stuff in HERE.

Why I said it has been the third time I encounter the site on purpose? AT first, I only featured its cheapest and wide selection of glasses. The second time, the stylish new glasses that arrived and now, I heard they have new designs available again!

Just a recap, ZenniOptical.com sells Stylish Prescription Glasses Online from $8. All can find a huge selection of frames, with single vision lens, sunsensor (potochromic) lens, tinted sunglasses lens, bifocal lens and progressive lens. The Secret to the Company's very very very Low Prices is that they sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget. ..

I post this again as I am planning to send one to my pop in Asia while I am here in Europe. COol, isn't it?
