Trying out the Pretty Little Liars makeup look myself

Author esantra Category

Guest post written by Penny Call
One of the things that I really love about the show Pretty Little Liars is that it's so unrealistic. It's so unrealistic that it's funny! I mean, no one would actually be intrigued or glad to hear about a group of teenage girls getting cyber bullied and harassed by some mysterious person that probably killed their best friend. But it makes for a really great plot for a TV show and apparently a book series too.
Also, what teenage girl could actually pull looks together like they do? Certainly not me when I was their age, but it's a look that I would like to achieve myself. So I went online to see if I could find a guide on how to do my makeup like theirs. While I was looking, I saw the site and after I looked through it some, I decided to change over my apartment's internet access to it.
I was surprised by how many guides there were online to get the Pretty Little Liars makeup look! I guess I'm not the only one! I have a date this weekend that I can't wait to try out a smoky eye for, a la Hannah.

Finally A Google Page Rank

Not sure if Google's new policies regarding original content and page rank have anything to do with it, but I finally have a Google Page Rank! Awesome. Not bragging or anything, but I got so excited this morning to see my little number 1! Google Page Rank can really open lines of revenue for you as far as sponsored posts and advertisers are concerned.

For those of you who do not know what Google Page Rank is:

  • a link analysis algorithm
  • measures your importance on the Internet
  • helps you make money
  • determines worth to advertisers and sometimes readers

eHow Closing Writer’s Compensation Program (WCP)

Demand Media Takeover...

I think it is so sad about the Demand Media takeover and now the closing of the eHow Writer’s Compensation Program (WCP). If you are anything like me, eHow was one of the ways that you began making money online. It seems sad to me that a site that had its roots in revenue sharing has now closed that program and essentially shut off the faucet to the writers that helped to make them who they are in the first place. At the same time I am grateful to the company that showed me a great deal about how internet marketing works. I suppose no line of online revenue really lasts forever, but I had gotten used to the income stream...

Demand Media has taken over. You can still make money with them, but the requirements are much more demanding. Most of the original articles are being removed, and new ones are subject to editing and rejection that mean a huge decrease in writer profits because the articles take so much longer to complete. Please comment if you have had positive experiences with Demand Media, or if you like the change.

Getting some inspiration for our green game room

Author esantra Category

Guest post written by Brian Larson

We decided that rather than just give our whole home a green makeover, we would adjust our habits and focus on two of the rooms that we waste the most energy in, our game room and our kitchen. We just use so much energy in both of those rooms, so we thought that would make a huge green difference in our home.

Right now we're working on finding some easy changes to make in our game room. While I was online the other day trying to get some ideas for that, I happened across some energy rates information in New York and read through it. After we looked through it together as a family, we decided to switch over our energy plan as a green step in the right direction. That will help not only in our game room and kitchen, but all over our home!

One of my favorite game room ideas was to switch out some of our gaming equipment with some that's made out of recycled materials. We found a really good dartboard that was made out of recycled cork. It's also just really cool and modern looking too.

eBay Items You Might Not Have Thought Of Before Today

Author esantra Category



Sometimes people tell me that they have nothing to sell on eBay. Wrong! People are always looking for other people’s junk. Here are some ideas that you might not have thought of before today:

  • Old Keyboard Keys – the keyboard does not have to work, and probably shouldn’t. People will pay you good money for the keys. This is a great sales technique if you have spilled cream soda in your laptop and can no longer use it.
  • Old clothing – some people will pay top dollar for your used clothing and shoes, especially designer brands and brands like Polo, Old Navy, etc.
  • Other junked electronics – people will pay you for things they can repair
  • Working car parts – especially good idea if your car isn’t running at the moment.
  • Never opened perfume, lotion. or unexpired makeup
  • Try anything once – the fees are low.

Homemade Ranch Dressing

Author esantra Category ,

Guest post written by Leah Rhoades

In the Rhoades household, we go through a large amount of ranch dressing. I'm the only one who doesn't like it and my husband and kids dip almost every kind of food in it. In other words, it's tough to make sure that we're in supply of ranch dressing. So I'm going to try and make it on my own as a way to cut back a little bit on expenses.
I've never made ranch dressing before though so I went online to try and figure out an easy recipe that would be close to the kind that my family loves. I found several different recipes with my Clear wireless internet, but after I looked through them I found one that I thought sounded pretty close to ! their favorite kind.
Luckily, my family really did like the DIY ranch dressing. At first the kids were afraid to try it when they heard that I had made it instead of buying the bottle that they've come to recognize. But my tough critics were pleased.

...This guest post made me realize that I had completely left out businesses based on homemade goods like cookies, perfume, and even baby food. These are excellent work at home and entrepreneurial ideas. To get you started here is a link to the Toll House Cookie Story
