Whateverlife: A young girl power!

I am a working-mom (having a regular work plus blogging plus writing plus designing and many more...) so I know how hard it is to balance your work and family. Much more to have a very successful career. But I have been trying to be the best in whatever I do. And I do get inspired whenever I heard or read that a woman is being recognized as successful in her field.

So as I was browsing the internet, looking for ways on how to be successful, I got interested in this little girl's BIG POWER : Ashley Qualls. "AshBo" (her nickname) is a blog entreprenuer who earn an estimated of $70,000 per month just because of providing FREE Myspace Layouts on her website So her earnings are mainly from advertising.

^ Layouts, Graphics, Tutorials, and more ^

Since the site has a lot of unique visitors and pageviews per day, there would be a lot of people who can possibily click her ads. Here's an excerpt from Fastcompany article:

"According to Google Analytics, Whateverlife attracts more than 7 million individuals and 60 million page views a month. That's a larger audience than the circulations of Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and CosmoGirl! magazines combined. Although Web-site rankings vary with the methodology, Quantcast, a popular source among advertisers, ranked a staggering No. 349 in mid-July out of more than 20 million sites. Among the sites in its rearview mirror:,, FDA .gov, and"

And what's more amazing is that this girl is just 17 years old. Another exerpt from

"At 17 going on 37 (at least), Ashley is very much an Internet professional. In the less than two years since Whateverlife took off, she has dropped out of high school, bought a house, helped launch artists such as Lily Allen, and rejected offers to buy her young company. Although Ashley was flattered to be offered $1.5 million and a car of her choice--as long as the price tag wasn't more than $100,000--she responded, in effect, Whatever. :) "I don't even have my license yet," she says."

I haven't tried creating an account on Myspace so I have never used Whateverlife's free Myspace layouts. But based from her website's online analytics, I know that she (and her team) really creates wonderful layouts. I may never be a fan of Myspace but I am now a fan of Ashley, creator of

Get in shape for the summer

Summer is just a couple of months away and undoubtedly you want to go out in the sun wearing as little clothing as possible. Still, this is an option only for those who look good and have no reason to hide their bodies. If heavy winter food and spring asthenia haven’t brought you down with depression, then you were certainly put off by a recent look into the mirror. It’s high time to lose that spare tire you are carrying around your waist and get in shape for the coming summer. You still have the time to get rid of the fat and make a good impression at the beach.

The best way to start when tackling the problem of shedding weight is by taking a good look at your diet. If you want to change anything about the way you look, this is your top priority. You are going to have to cut down on potatoes, pasta and bread. You are also going to skip chips, soda, fries and all sorts of fast food. Instead, you should rely on fruits and vegetables to keep hunger away. Keep fruits with you at all times and eat to your heart’s content. If you feel hungry and desperate for a snack, don’t buy a bag of chips or a hamburger. Instead, you should eat a banana or a couple of apples.

The second part of your weight loss strategy should be exercising. It doesn’t matter if you feel all rusty after the long winter and it doesn’t matter if you are not in the mood. Get off the couch and exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. Before you start growling, I’d like to point out that 30 minutes are by no means a sacrifice. If you can find a couple of hours to watch TV every day, then you can certainly find 30 minutes to exercise in order to stay in shape and healthy. The best way to exercise is to go to the gym. If you’re not comfortable with that, you should at least go jogging. It’s good for your heart and it helps you burn fat fast.

Another good way to shed weight is to use a weight loss system. The best such system around is the amazing ProShapeRX - O-Vital, the only weight loss solution to combine pills, exercises and diet tips. This multi-sided approach helps you burn existing fat and preventing the accumulation of new fat from food. The unique database of dieting tips and recipes is also perfect for anybody interested in healthy eating. With the help of this system you will shed all unwanted weight just in time for beach parties.

Is Affiliate Marketing an Effective Way to Earn Money Online?

Affiliate Marketing is a business relationship between a producer and advertiser. A producer can be a company or individual that is selling products or services while an advertiser is someone who is willing to promote the said product or service. This relationship is now strongly built online and is considered one effective way to earn money online.

So why all of a sudden I am talking about Affiliate Marketing? Plainly because I have recently engaged into Affiliate programs and hoping that one day I'll be successful. Also, I would like to share this information to those would like to earn money online without spending any money (because sign up is for free). Moreover, I would like to seek advice from you so you can help me become successful on my endeavors.

Some of the Affiliate Programs that I am currently into are the following:

Bravenet is a service that helps webmasters in creating and maintaing their websites. It provides free site and free tools such as mailing list, counter, guestbook, widgets and a lot more. If you need enhanced features such as having your own domain name then you can create a pro account with minimal fee. They also have an Affiliate Program that allows you to earn $1 per affiliate program referral and $50-$100 per hosting account you refer. So Join Bravenet Now to get the most of web designing and affiliate marketing.

You may also send, receive and request money globally.

Moreover, it has a Great Affiliate Program that allows you to earn $1000 for every Merchant you refer.

One of the affiliate programs that you can never resists because of the enticing ad that says "Earn up to $233 per sale" with "High demand products that get searched for over 2 Million times per month." Sign up as an advertiser of World Niche to get rich.

I have read a lot of blogs and these are just some of the affiliate programs that they suggest. Most of the blogs are affiliate markerters too and they really recommend this process if you are serious about making money online. But I guess you need to have strategies so you can maximize the benefits of Affiliate Programs. Some of the things that I am considering are the following:

1. Quality Writings. Of course, you would not want your website to look like a online billboard where it has a lot of advertisements. As they say "Content is always the king" you have to couple your ads with quality review. But if you have been a blogger or webmaster for quite sometime now and your site or blog has a lot of visitors, that only proves that you can write quality content which you can use on Affiliate Programs.

2. Proper Placement of Advertisements. Organize your blog and make sure to place your ads where your readers can actually see them. And make sure that you don't clutter your blog with so much advertisements.

3. Seek Advice from the Experts. It's always good to ask because that is one way of learning new things. If you are afraid to ask then you can just simply visit the sites of Online Money Makers. Use the search engine to discover who are earning money online. Some of my favorites are: Problogger and Dosh Dosh

So do you think I'm taking the right path in becoming a successful online blogger and marketer? Or do you know any other legit Affiliate Program that pays well? I'd like to hear from you. =)

Pay-Per-Play : Earn Money For Every Site Visitor

I am always looking out for new ways for my readers to make more money online with less effort.

Recently I came across a new innovation that you need to hear about because it may affect the way you earn with your website in the very near future.

As you may know, major television networks are in trouble because their advertising revenue is dropping. They are losing market share at a dramatic pace.

For the first time in history, website owners are sharing in the ad revenue that was formerly spent with the giant TV networks.

Advertisers like Harley Davidson, HBO & Taco Bell are willing to pay you on 100% of your website traffic to make up for the loss of viewers that the big TV networks are experiencing.

Do your online business a huge favor. Stop what you are doing for just a moment and learn how you can earn revenue on 100% of your website traffic.

This is a F*R*E*E opportunity that is taking the advertising community by storm.

This is bigger than radio, television and all other forms of media combined!

Out in the sun

Everybody wants to lie drowsily in the sun and let the summer rays turn the skin to a healthy and sexy looking dark brown. However, there are some health-related issues you should be aware of before spreading that beach towel. Sun exposure causes skin cancer, the most common type of cancer reported among the residents of the United Kingdom and USA. US authorities report that one in every three new cancer cases is skin cancer.

The sun sends out ultraviolet radiation, most of which is stopped from reaching the Earth’s surface by the ozone layer. The UV radiation that makes it past the ozone layer is strong enough to alter the DNA of skin cells and trigger, in time, the formation of carcinomas and melanomas. UV radiation is also responsible for sunburns and skin ageing.

Children and people with fair or red hair or fair skin, who tend to burn rapidly in the sun, are more at risk than others and may develop skin cancer faster. They should be the first to use sunscreen and other types of protection against UV radiation (wearing long sleeves and hats in summer). Most cases of skin cancer could have been prevented by limiting the exposure to sun.

Many cases actually result from exposure to UV radiation during childhood and the teen years. This means that you should start protecting yourself early on and that parents should teach their children things such as staying out of the sun at midday, wearing protective clothing and putting on sunscreen. Protection is the key to preventing skin cancer. Many people believe that ultraviolet radiation is the strongest when it’s very warm outside, but heat comes from infrared radiation. This means that you should be protected even on cooler days.

UV radiation is at its highest level in summer, around midday, when the sun is high in the sky. If you like mountain climbing, then you should be doubly careful; UV radiation increases with altitude. A heavy cloud cover may block UV radiation, but thin clouds are not good enough for protection. Don’t rely on the fact that you can face the sun safely for half an hour or even an hour. You cannot feel UV radiation on your skin and you will not be able to tell when it’s no longer safe for you to be out in the sun.

More on skin cancer

There are three types of skin cancer, according to the type of tumors that develop on the skin. The most common and less dangerous types feature basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Approximately nine in ten skin cancer cases belong to these two types. The true dangerous type is the malignant melanoma cancer, which can be fatal if not treated early.

Basal cell carcinomas look much like sores and form on the exposed parts of the skin: neck, shoulders, hands, and head. The carcinomas appear as raised, round bumps or flattened lumps of a reddish, pale or pearly colour. The carcinomas may be crusted and bleeding is frequent. Squamous cell carcinoma features persistent red, scaling, thickened spots on the sun-exposed skin. Ulceration and bleeding may occur. The SCC may also grow in size and spread to other parts of your skin if it is not treated.

In order to protect yourself, you should know what symptoms to look for. Most surface skin cancer cases can be treated with surgery if they are identified and brought to a doctor’s attention early on. However, if carcinomas or melanomas are allowed to grow, they will expand into the deeper layers of the skin and will connect with the lymphatic system. They will also metastasize and spread to other parts of the body, which may prove fatal. This is why you should always be careful to check for signs of cancer.

Any newly grown sore or reddish patch of skin that does not heal over a longer period of time (at least one month) is likely to be a carcinoma or melanoma, especially if you notice any bleeding. Any spot that does not stop itching, hurting or bleeding is also likely to be skin cancer. Also look for inflamed moles or moles that start to bleed or crust. Persistent ulceration of the skin that cannot be explained by your activities should also be suspected of being an early sign. If you experience any of the above symptoms, you should go to a doctor as soon as possible. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

The worst type of skin cancer lesions are malignant melanomas. Melanomas look like moles, but grow to be bigger than any other moles you have ever seen. They develop in the outer layer of the skin, but can spread to other parts of the body and may be fatal if left untreated. You should see a doctor if you notice that one or more existing moles are growing in size. Melanomas also have a ragged outline, which is significantly different from the round and regular shape of common moles.

Stay safe

Knowledge is power. The more you know about skin cancer and its roots, the better you can protect yourself. Here are a few simple tips designed to help you in your quest to never experience skin cancer as long as you live.

As stated above, avoid the sun when it’s high in the sky. This means that you should stay indoors, or at least in the shade, between 11 AM and, say, 3 PM. After 3 PM it should be safe enough to venture outside. Still, you should always take advantage of shade, wherever you find it. Buy yourself a pair of UV protection glasses, if you don’t have one already. Wear a wide-brimmed hat if you can’t cover your neck by some other means. Make sure the exposed parts of your body never get burnt; you may want to invest in a sunscreen solution with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to cover your hands and, if need be, feet. Use comfortable clothing that actually covers your body.

Keep in mind that no sunscreen solution is 100 percent safe, so cover as much of your skin as possible. Be extra careful with babies and children. Their skin needs much more protection than that of adults. Avoid sunbeds and tanning lamps. Such devices simply negate any effort to protect yourself from exposure to UV radiation. And lastly, check you skin on a regular basis and see your doctor if you notice any unexplained changes.

Tips on sunscreens

If you are willing to spend some money on a sunscreen, you should at least make sure you buy something worth your cash. The first thing to look for is the phrase “broad spectrum”. This means that the product can protect you from UV radiation of both type A and B. The second thing to look for is the Sun Protection Factor; the higher, the better. Buy products with SPFs of at least 15 to make sure you are well protected. If you are planning a trip to the beach, then you may also want a sunscreen marked “water resistant”, which is less likely to wash off in fifteen minutes. Remember that high SPF levels do not mean that you can stay in the sun longer. You will simply be better protected.
