Google claims ownership of all your content on your Drive, Microsoft stays hands off, dropbox dead.

Google claims ownership of all your content on your Drive, Microsoft stays hands off, dropbox dead.

I love my Dropbox , but Google Drive and Microsoft Sky Drive launched today with much flair.  They are both about half the price of Dropbox, but my love for Dropbox is the easy folder integration, I have to test if these new services are as easy. The big concern no one is talking about, is the fine print and this would make me run from Google and give Microsoft a bug hug (and my money)

Relaunching Pereda.org on my – GoDaddy Free Hosting

Relaunching Pereda.org on my – GoDaddy Free Hosting

I use Go Daddy as my domain site and a while ago they starting giving free Linux hosting (and Windows) with every domain name.

Since I get Free Hosting with Every Domain I thought I would test it out by thowing up a quick wordpress site.  I put up the 2nd domain I ever bought Pereda.org.

A decade or so ago pereda.org was a family tree website for my family,  I became paranoid about all that info in the open and took down the site.  I am not sure what the site will become, but it is my testing ground for now.

Ignoring my site – Bad Blogger

Ignoring my site – Bad Blogger

I have  been committing the worst thing any blogger can do,  I have been ignoring my sites. 🙁

I know I have been bad, but life as gotten in the way.  I Have been SUPER Busy.

I am working about 11 hours a day on my job. I also have been really packing on the traveling miles.  In the past 3 months, I have spent exactly one weekend at home.  Admittedly most of my time wasting was self inflicted by my  racing habit in Feb and March.  I was also out of the country for work for about 4 weeks.

Anyway, back to the grindstone….  and hopefully more frequent blog posts.

I have some real brain drain and reading this over here to pick me up.

How long would it take you to spend 1 billion dollars?

How long would it take you to spend 1 billion dollars?

How long would it take you to spend $1,000,000,000?

If you spent a thousand dollars an hour ($1,000).

That is 24 thousand dollars a day ($24,000).

That is over 8,7 million dollars a year ($8,760,000)

It would still take you longer than you will live.

 

It would take 114.16 years.

That is a long time, long, long, time

 

Prolific Blogging, Videos, Niche exploring and focus.

Prolific Blogging, Videos, Niche exploring and focus.

I am currently on a quest to do some prolific blogging. I am centered around the Videos portion of blogging. I have several videos that I have made over the weekend that will go up on my various sites over the next few days. I have also started a few new sites and one I am particularly excited about.

My goal is to monetize some of my online adventures and ideas. I am breaking off some of the most successful post in to sites of their own.

Changes and updates are coming!

Using Magento Commerce as an affiliate site.

Using Magento Commerce as an affiliate site.

I am now running 3 Sites with Magento. Two are Traditional Shopping cart sites, but the my newest one had to be an affiliate style site.

What I mean by an affiliate site is that when you click on the buy it now button you are taken to a 3rd party website to complete the sale. Magento does not do this out of the box, it took a long sleepless night for me to figure out how to do this. Not too many people are willing to share how they did this either. I have to thank Platinumtackle.com for their help.

I will be releasing the template that I created to do this very soon. I need to test it some more and finish building my new site.

Please Leave a comment if you are interested in this template.

Magento Commerce

Magento Commerce

I have been playing around with Magento for a while now. I have to say that I am pretty happy with it and I think I will be migrating my sites over to it. The site is a bit resource intensive, but I think my server will do for now. As traffic builds on my site, I will have be moving to a cloud.
