Web 2.0 sites are here to stay

Web 2.0 Cash Technology

In a previous post I talked about making money with online gaming. Well, plain old static HTML pages won’t work with a gaming site. It has to have a rich user experience. It’s needs to provide user interactivity. In fact, the website needs to have as close as possible to the look and feel of a real desktop application.

technology to the rescue. It is a revolution that is here to stay. With it you can provide the interactivity your users deserve. Learn about technologies such as , Soap, / , , and of course (made famous by Google).

Instead of you providing the content, you will have a community of user providing user driven content. This is perfect for my online gaming site. I can learn all this from .

Chocolate Cover Fondants

Fondants can be used

  1. to make cream filled with chocolates and elaborate cake decoration.
  2. to make a flat base for a wedding cake
  3. as a substituted for chocolate as a covering on candies.
  4. as a mock white chocolate or a mixture of cocoa and fondant can be made to look like mock chocolate.
  5. as a dip for cherries, and fruits etc. If these fruits are dipped in chocolate fondant it solidifies to form an outer hard shell.

There are many more recipes with chocolate fondant. These are only a few example uses of chocolate fondant.

How is made? The simplest form of fondant can be made by cooking sugar and water. It is then cooled slightly, and stirred or beaten until it is an opaque mass of creamy consistency. Usually glucose is added to prevent it from graining while cooking. Corn syrup is the most commonly used form of glucose. The fondant usually solidifies after it cools, but it can be liquefied with heating. Fondant chocolate has become the standard for modern, high-quality chocolate because it is extremely smooth and palatable.

How to Maximize Marketing for Insurance Agents

Hi Samuel here. I was talking to my sister the other day. She has been in the insurance business for years. One of the most difficult task is getting the word out. You want to tell everyone that you provide a service to provide quality insurance. At first you do word of mouth advertising, but that only goes so far. Next you try, putting an ad in the paper. You quickly realize, you are paying an arm and a leg for the ad space and there aren’t that many referrals you get from the ads. Basically, your conversion rates sucks. Anyway she was telling me about this problem. I really wanted to help her out. I don’t want to see her kids not being fed.

I started doing some searches on the Internet, and came across a type of service called . It’s a professional service that helps insurance agents market their products, and themselves as upstanding, reputable insurance agents in their community. This is achieved by providing insurance agents will high quality leads.

We Signed Up For Pay Per Post

As you noticed recently, we put up “pay per post” badges on this blog. We thought it would be a good idea to make a little extra money. I want to start putting away money for college early. By the time, Sandy, and Timmy are ready to go to college, hopefully there will be enough money saved up to pay for tuition, books, and living expenses. That will be about ten years from now. So time is on our side.

Since we are already writing about chocolate, there is no reason why we cannot write reviews, and not get paid extra. We will post reviews related to the topic of chocolate. We are going to have some blog ads, but no to the extent we have seen in other blogs.

This is strictly for a good cause. In fact, my nephew has been working for free running this blog and other blogs. I would like to pay him for his hard work. He has been gracious enough to run all the technical stuff.

When we came across PayPerPost on another blog , I discussed this with Nick, and Nicole. They both said go for it. So we signed for an account on PayPerPost, and hopefully we can write some great reviews, and make money to help with the cause.
Of course, feel free to sign up with PayPerPost. Everybody can make extra money as well.
