The Ultimate Flirting Championship

What's the worst pick-up line you've heard? For me, it had to be when a guy asked me if someone had turned the lights off in the bar we were in as I was the only light he could see. Ewww. I wanted to say "Duh, are you blind?" Or maybe the line would have worked if he wasn't drunk and his breath didn't smell like alcohol when he said those words.

Anyway, I found this great game you can play online with live people. It's called the Ultimate Flirting Championship and it will really test your abilities to flirt with someone through asking or responding to a set of questions, all aimed to achieve Victory Hair. Assuming not everybody is familiar with the term, Victory Hair refers to a hot gal and guy both with stylish hair and get-ups who get their hairs messed up after one thing leads to another. Get the picture?

Sounds interesting, right? Then go ahead and play the Extreme Style by VO5 Ultimate Flirting Championship game below through the widget and put your flirting abilities to the test!

Blogging and Money

My mother in law asked me recently how much I've already earned blogging. Well, I never really kept track of it until she asked. So I had to check my bank's website and my PayPal account to find out.

From November 2007 up to my last transaction with PayPal which was July 4, 2008, I have already earned a total of Php64,648.95. It's a pretty big amount that I've earned off of making sponsored posts, blogging jobs off of another person's site / blog, and reviews of a certain product or website, depending on the advertiser's request.

To think that all you do is write and you make a five figure amount in less than a year is an accomplishment for me. I know a lot of bloggers out there earn a whole lot more than the figure I just quoted, but for me who's been into blogging in less than a year, I'd consider it a pretty good start.

In the coming weeks I am thinking of making a post about the best paid to post sites that I have been working for in the past months. I'd probably feature how their payouts work, when you get paid, and other stuff you should know before joining the site. I'm thinking of keeping up blogging for as long as I possibly can, and with the money I'm earning, well, it's not bad at all.

Zenni Optical

Zenni Optical is a great site that sells stylish prescription glasses online. At Zenni Optical, $8 Rx Eyeglasses are available with a wide range of frames to choose from.

Incredible stylish new frames from Zenni are available including single vision lens, sun sensor lens, tinted sunglasses lens, bifocal lens, and progressive lens. I personally wasn't surprised to find out that Zenni Optical was on FOX news! Why? Because Zenni Optical sells their products at really low prices due to the fact that they manufacture their own frames and sells them direct to their customers, with no middlemen and no advertising budget.

On Approving Comments

I don't know about you guys, but recently I've decided on rejecting comments in my posts, especially those comments that the writer's objective seems to be to leave a link on your blog. I have the word verification on my blog, so whoever leaves comments are certainly human.

I am just curious why some people would bother scouring the web for content similar to theirs and leave nonsense comments and a link back to their site. I've decided to reject these kinds of comments altogether.

I know I'm not being harsh, since I just don't want to lose traffic and all. Or am I being harsh?

A Clean House

I got home from work today and I found my mother in law, Henry, and Kuya Edjie down on their knees cleaning the house. Since they were already busy doing a task delegated by my mom in law, I just went ahead and cooked our lunch. It didn't turn out that well, as there was a missing ingredient, but with a little bit of fish sauce, the veggies that I cooked were pretty OK.

Henry and I haven't eaten yet, but we're going to do so as soon as the kids are fed. Later on, my mom in law will bathe them, I'll be done blogging, and I'm off to a good afternoon's sleep for another night at work.

On Dirt Devil AccuCharge

5238dd240x180public Cleaning a house takes up and consumes not only your energy, but electrical energy as well. As busy as daily life can be, we are either tempted to call housekeeping over to clean up, have our special someone clean up for us (provided they agree! lol!), or just avoid cleaning altogether until someone in the house with a golden heart decides to clean up for us.

Traditional vacuum cleaners are not only big, bulky, and noisy - they also consume a lot of energy. Which is why Dirt Devil came up with a better way to save energy. Their new AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac use 70% less energy – making AccuCharge the first cordless cleaning technology to earn the Energy Star approval.

With the Dirt Devil AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac being cordless, it means you are not restricted in your movements by a cord always needing to be plugged into a power outlet - you can reach those stubborn corners and thoroughly clean your house without having to worry if your cord will reach or not. And with the Dirt Devil AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac consuming 70% less energy, you can clean all you want without having to worry about the energy consumption. With an equipment with these much benefits, it's no wonder why AccuCharge is the first cordless cleaning technology to have earned the Energy Star approval.

What Happened to Brand My Blog?

I'm wondering what's up with Brand My Blog. It's a site that allows you to showcase your posts by adding a widget similar to Blogrush, as you can see on the right sidebar of my blog. Yesterday, when I visited my blogs, the widget was gone. Worse, when I tried going to their site, the website could not be opened.

I don't know if they're just going through an upgrade of sorts, or the site has closed down without my knowledge - they could send out emails if in case. But I really liked the service and I hope that everything will be back to normal with Brand My Blog.

I've Just Been Blogged!

I got an email just today that my blog, Rant and Rave! has been rated an 8.5 out of 10, which in the email said the rating was Great by a site called Blogged. I visited the link that was included in the email, silently praying it wasn't an advertisement (lol! I get sooo many spam messages I don't want to even open them anymore) and I saw several blogs that were listed there. Actually, my other blog, Something and Nothing at All was also on the list, with a rating of 8.5 as well.

Both my blogs were listed in the Personal category, and you can view other blogs rated 8.5 and other blogs as well by visiting this link. The blogs were rated based on frequency of updates, relevance of content, site design, and writing style. I just feel so happy and honored that somehow, my efforts in blogging have been rewarded.
