Guest Post: The Art of "Slickdealing"

The Art of “SlickDealing
From the perspective of an experienced bargain hunter
I call myself a “Slickdealer” because I don’t believe myself to be cheap but rather frugal (a term that a lot of people mistakenly think means being cheap).  The dictionary defines frugal as the following:
 “Economical in use or expenditure; prudently saving or sparing; not wasteful”

It’s not that I don’t want to buy high quality items, it’s that I would like to buy such items at the cheapest price possible, thereby being economical and not wasteful. I have been practicing the art of ‘SlickDealing’ for many years and it has saved countless dollars! 

My best example of SlickDealing is a story from when I was 10 years old.  The new Tony Hawk Pro Skater game had just been released for N64 and cost a whopping $60. My mom and I went to the local GameStop to take a look at what they had and, of course, the game wasn’t any cheaper.  I didn’t want my mom to spend that much money on a video game that I knew would be cheaper in a few months, so I started wandering the store looking for another game to buy. After a few minutes I noticed a sign on the wall that read, “trade in any 5 of these games and get a free game of your choice!”  Attached to the sign was a list of eligible games for the promotion.  I began to wonder if any of the games on the list were on sale at the shop for a low, discounted price. Low and behold, this Gamestop had all of the games on the list. I walked around the store collecting the five cheapest games on the list. After around 10 minutes of price comparing, I had a total of around $37 in used games, all of which were eligible for the promotion. I walked up to the cashier and purchased all of them. When the transaction was finished I thanked the cashier and said, “I would like to exchange these for the new Tony Hawk game using the promotion on the wall.” The look on the cashier’s face was priceless. His next move was to call over the manager, who confirmed that I was allowed to do this. So the manager finished the transaction and I walked out holding my new Tony Hawk game for a grand total of $37. As I walked out of the store, I could see out of the corner of my eye the cashier walking around the store removing all of the promotional signs!

            In this series, I hope to show you the steps and measures that I routinely go through when I’m looking to buy a certain product or service in hopes that I can help you get the best bang for your buck on whatever you are looking to buy.  It basically boils down to 3 general steps:
1.      Quality Research
2.      Merchant Research
3.      Price Research

You might have noticed that the word research is in every one of these steps.  That is no coincidence; SlickDealing is pretty much all research!

Guest Post: Basic Guide To Getting Started With Pinterest

Almost everyone I know, is talking about pinterest. It is basically an online cork-board that allows you to share your thoughts by 'pinning'. People who are already members of the site tend to state that it can make your life craftier, easier and even interesting. For a newbie, they might find the site to be quite challenging as they are not familiar with it. This being the case, it would be great if you had five simple steps that can help you create an account and start using pinterest effectively.

1 Getting an account

Pinterest is not an online platform that you can join just like that. Registration is only through invitation. It is not hard to get an invitation as you can do so by requesting one from the site or from someone you know who is already a member. It is likely that a Facebook friend might be on pinterest and can easily send you an invite. When you are registering for a username, it is advisable to get one that is similar or closely matching the rest of your usernames on other social sites. This will help people who are looking for you to find you easily.

2. Create your Pinterest boards

Once you have registered and created your basic biography, you can begin creating boards. Think about the pinning topics. It can be cool hairstyles, healthy recipes and nursery inspirations. Boards are available in all types of categories. Your pinterest boards can be about your business, your hobby or just anything you feel like putting up.For example, there is a pinterest board that is called 'things that make me laugh' and another 'if I had a million dollars'. If you are not sure what you want as your board, you can take a look at the site and find ideas of what you can use as your board topic.

3. Find people to follow

Now that you have created your boards, you will need to find followers. A good idea would be to look for people who are already following you on other social sites like Facebook and Twitter. When you invite such people to join you on pinterest or to follow your boards, you have a high chance of getting the people who follow them from other sites. This will in turn give you a bigger following of people with different ideas and skills.Once you have found people, connect to them and comment on their pins, like or re-pin them to your own boards. Take note that you do not need to follow all of an individual's boards. Clicking follow on their profile is enough. This way, you will avoid overwhelming your feed.

4. Start pinning

The fourth step is having fun with pinterest by pinning. The best way to go about this is adding the bookmarklet to your browser. This should be done via your account as it will allow you to pin anything you come across when you are browsing the web. Once you see anything you like when browsing, just click on the 'pin it' button. A pop up window will appear with instructions on the rest of the procedure. Images that are attractive have a higher likelihood to be pinned. If you are on the go, you can use the Pinterest iPhone app. 

5. Like, re-pin, comment

Pinterest is a social network. This means that connections are the key to success. They are also the key to become part of the community and a fun way to meet new people. Apart from looking for inspiration to pin, you should also acknowledge pins by others. In pinterest, it is easy to 'like' something. You just follow the same process you would on Facebook or Instagram. This is the same process that will occur for commenting. You comments and likes in pinterest will appear in your main page, just the same way they do on Facebook. You can also re-pin an image, which will mean you will be actually putting it on your own board.

Basically, following these steps will not only ensure you have an account with pinterest, but it will also ensure your site is up and running. Such steps will also help you gain a lot of followers and knowledge making your pinterest experience worthwhile.

Guest Post: What is SEO? (Search Engine Optimization)

Search Engine Optimization, also known as SEO, is the ongoing process of making web pages rank highly in a search engine’s search results for certain search terms. SEO refers to the optimization or organic search results, which are not to be confused with paid search results. While there are many different tasks that an SEO must do to make a webpage rank highly within a search engine’s results, the various tasks can be categorized within three main areas: structural website optimization, content optimization, and off-site optimization. While I will be discussing each of these three areas if discipline in later articles, this article should serve to give a very basic understanding of what SEO is.

To begin, you may be wondering why, or how, SEO exists. In order to answer this question, we should first acknowledge, at least briefly, how search engines work.

First, search engines gather data by crawling web pages online and evaluating these pages based on a long list of criteria, also known as ranking signals. Depending on how well a given web page meets each individual criterion, that web page is given a certain ranking within the search results for a given set of search terms.

By understanding how search engines work and understanding the major criteria for ranking highly in search, webmasters can begin to optimize their webpages for high search rankings. While we can thank those who have dedicated themselves to investigating the search signals and testing their hypotheses, the ability to perform SEO is actually a natural side effect of how search engines work.

At this point, I’m sure many of you are wondering how SEO works. While this requires a very in-depth explanation that I will give in future blog posts, I felt it appropriate to give a very brief explanation here.

Search Engine Optimization begins within the code of the page you are trying to optimize. The webpage should be properly tagged in order for the search engine to know what the page is about. This involves having appropriate titles for the page as well as having tags within the page’s code that tell the search engine that the page is relevant for search results.

Next, the page needs to have good, substantial text content. This content should be original and should be focused on a single topic. If you wanted your website to rank in search results for five major search terms, it would be best to discuss each term on five different pages (and try to optimize each page for a certain term), as opposed to discussing five major terms on a single page. Remembering this will help you to create good, focused content.

Last, SEO requires you to make sure that other related websites are signaling to the search engines that your webpage is relevant, and worthy, to rank for a given search term. This is done primarily through obtaining links from external sites to the page being optimized. While this aspect of SEO requires an explanation longer than a single sentence, this should provide a general understanding of what off site elements are necessary for rankings.

Hopefully this article has provided you with a general understanding of what SEO is and how it works. Please leave questions in the comments section and I will try my best to answer!

Guest Post: 4 Affordable SEM Strategies

Nowadays, there is a lot you can do with Search Engine Marketing. The Internet is in any case an excellent means for promotion and winning end users over. As a matter of fact, it’s a tool most businesses prefer to use, because of its capacity as a client magnet. Well, if you’re not a business owner, you can embark on SEM as well.

Social Networking

You can market your products and services via Facebook and Twitter or other social networking sites on-hand as soon as you have finished creating your own account. Moreover, this allows you to join in online forums where you can post links to your webpage and advertise to potential consumers. This is also one great public relations approach for your business.

Pay Per Click

PPC is in demand these days too. Those with their own websites can enable advertisers to post ads on their website. Every click on these ads is equivalent to a certain amount. That’s wonderful isn’t it? The price per click would be subject to the arrangement with the promoter. It could one of two kinds of rates, fixed or based on the established bid. This will also push traffic straight onto the business’s website.

Search Engine Optimization

SEO is also becoming popular now. With merely quality content materials added on your website, you’re good to go. You increase your website’s visibility on the internet through utilizing keywords, thus people will have no trouble finding your website on Google, Yahoo, and other search engines. This is highly to your benefit if you’re aiming to boost up your rankings on any on search engine. It is suggested that the keywords be placed first and/or last in the paragraphs.


One more SEM strategy that is surely within your means is by publishing links on blog sites or online discussion boards. For those with their own blog site or if you leave comments on other people’s blog sites, you are able to post links to your website. This is an effective technique to increase traffic to your site. For sure, besides blog sites and web forums, you can also place links via social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. This will let you to get to more and more probable patrons and improve your productivity.

Guest Post: Duplicate Content and How to Avoid It

It is very easy to inadvertently create duplicate content on a website. The definition of duplication in this context is where the same content appears under multiple URLs. Duplicate content can potentially decrease traffic to a web page because the search engines will be unsure of which page is the most relevant for a particular query. Below are some common issues and solutions:


This is
the most common form of duplicate content problem and is caused when the web pages can be accessed using various URLs e.g.

Although all of these URLs access the same web page, the search engines view them as separate pages and confusion will arise.


This can be resolved by using a server-side redirect to ensure that only one page URL is served; how to carry this out will depend on the specific server set up. Alternatively, choosing the preferred URL can be done via Google Webmaster Tools. Specific instructions for the latter option can be found

Printable Pages

Websites which have information pages such as News sites and RSS feeds often have a 'Print' feature which loads the page content with a format which is stripped of CSS styling and images more suitable for printing. However, the printable format creates a new URL by adding /print and is seen as duplicate content.


There is a very simple way to overcome this type of duplication and that is to use a rel=canonical tag on the \print page pointing towards the original page.

Blog Pages

The problem with blogs is not the pages themselves; it is the tags that are associated with them or the categories that they are placed under. Different blog articles will often contain the same tag words and will inevitably be posted under a category more than once.


The solution to this particular problem is again fairly simple. Most bloggers use a 'format' which features only a few different categories but numerous tags, in which case using "no index, no follow" on all of the 'tag' pages will resolve the problem. For those who do have a larger number of categories than tags, add the code to the 'category' pages.

Relative Linking

Many webmasters use relative internal linking as the faster, easier option, but when used in conjunction with HTTPS pages and sub domains especially, it can result in occurrences of duplicate pages.


Some issues can be overcome by simply using a 'self-referential' rel=canonical tag for each page that could be affected in this way. However, there is no guarantee that this will be successful for every searchengine.

The only other way is to make all internal links 'absolute' which means using the full URL in the link rather than serving the information from an internal source. Each absolute URL is unique and points directly to the file required.


There are other issues that can cause duplicated content to arise quite innocently, but the ones mentioned above are by far the most commonplace.

Most are easily resolved with a little bit of time and application, others can easily be avoided by a little more thought going in to the design and coding of any new web pages produced.

We recently got the chance to review the netTalk Duo WiFi voice over ip telephone service. To be honest we are not much of techies, and weren't sure exactly what to expect.

At first the light that is on the netTalk Duo WiFi device did not turn green. I started to worry a little as I thought perhaps I did not connect everything as I should have. After rechecking my connections, I waited thinking maybe it had to register itself in some way ( the novice techie at Finally about 5 minutes later I decided to unplug the device from the outlet and plug it back in. Then my green light came on. I immediately placed a test call to my cell phone to make sure it was working.

Is Cinnamon The Key To Infertility?

Cinnamon is often lauded as an almost miraculous spice because of the amount of ailments and conditions it can relieve. Possibly only second to Vinegar when it comes to simple treatments we probably all have or can easily get out hands on, cinnamon is capable of helping many, many conditions ranging from the severe like heart disease and arthritis, to upset stomachs and colds. It can also improve things like blood pressure or hair loss. Now when I say ‘help’, that can be a very arbitrary term, because there is not always a clear cause-and-effect relationship. Cinnamon is afterall, just a herb and not a medicinal pill. Those who take it have seen dramatic improvements in their condition, though it is not to say that cinnamon was the one cause; in those cases it could another or a combination of factors. Cinnamon is however a welcome addition to anyone who has been told they need to re-consider their lifestyle and the effect on their health, or who have been suffering from one of those ailments listed above. In other words, it can’t do any harm, and will most likely be a benefit overall.
In relation to infertility, cinnamon is one of several changes or additions one can make to improve their situation. When issues surrounding an ability to conceive occur, it is often the case that a GP will recommend a few different things before a problem sought out as the explanation for why someone can not get pregnant, just so the body is in as optimum condition at that point. For instance, stress can have a massive impact on the body’s functions.
These can include diet issues, such as a deprivation of particular nutrients or minerals like zinc, which is often stripped from many foods through processing but yet which we all need. What is great about taking stock of what minerals we are actually taking in, is that these are not medicinal, and can easily be bought from a pharmacy or at our local supermarket in the form of foods which are rich in it; for instance, zinc is found in high levels in foods like pumpkin seeds and fish. It is also a general problem with diet, that has occurred over the years, whereby the average diet has digressed in terms of quality or inclusion of the necessary fruit and veg one should get. This would not have been an issue a few decades ago, but because lifestyles change over time, the problems occur. These tie into social or cultural issues as well, with perhaps more women smoking than was culturally acceptable 60 years ago, or having their own careers. Where we get our produce from is also an issue, with perhaps more of us turning to larger supermarkets who treat their produce differently in order to mass-distribute it and keep it fresh for longer.
Often it is when we try to do something strenuous on the body, like conceiving or going through labour, that we realise just how healthy we are ourselves. Like walking up an abnormally large hill, our bodies are truly tested; sometimes, and unfortunately so, we realise at these moments if we have harmed our bodies in some way or if we have inherited some medical condition, usually because this is when deeper medical tests are performed. Without being too rude, those who are trying to conceiving may be having sex a lot more frequently, sometimes at times which they would not expect, like when the woman is ovulating; this requires both to be not only in the mood but in relatively good condition to “perform”.
Returning to cinnamon as the be all and end all of fertility; unfortunately there is not a lot of significant medical research to back up any claim that it can reverse infertility. What it does help is those women who suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a disorder of the ovaries, is a large cause of infertility in women. What cinnamon can do is reduce insulin resistance in sufferers, through its capacity to control blood sugars (which is why cinnamon is recommended to diabetes sufferers). While it is not ideal or a solution by any means, it is one step that can help those with PCOS trying to conceive.  
 For those who do manage to get pregnant, keeping cinnamon in one’s diet, whether through cinnamon bark in cooking or through cinnamon supplements themselves, is very much a positive as it can help relieve fatigue and is immune-boosting, which is beneficial for not just the mother-to-be but the baby too.
