Computers and printers and scanners....oh my!

Oh, I was so happy when I re-installed my scanner - I missed it so. I didn't even mind crawling behind the computer to re-hook the connections and re-install the software. But alas it was not to stay that way. Had to do a quick print job for one of my clients so I had to disconnect the scanner in order to re-hook up my printer because they aren't compatible with one another. I could solve this problem by getting an A/B switch which I could get during my next jaunt to Radio Shack but I had to do the print job as soon as possible. So I get back down on the floor and crawl behind the computer and disconnect and reconnect - didn't get it right the first time but I managed to finally get it working again.

That A/B switch is looking better and better all the time!

Getting "clicks" other than using "pay per clicks"?


Depending on what your webpage is about then you should identify your target market. Is your website selling something and you want to generate more sales? Then identify your target market. Who is most likely to buy your product or service? Then you target to them.

As far as search engines go you can even use them to your advantage as far as finding out where you rank in the search engines.

If you're really serious about making a go with your website then you should use as many resources as you have. For example if you're getting less "clicks" to your website find out why. Of the visitors that you are getting where are they coming from and why. Does your website offer any kind of interactivity? There are many successful and profitable websites online and you want your website to be one of them!

I have really got to get off of this computer now!

I was supposed to have eaten dinner 2 and a half hours ago! And I haven't even played my Descent game as I customarily do!

I also have some new jobs that I have to work on as well.

  • One of my clients that I do business cards for now wants a flyer-type advertisement to post in the laundry room of the new apartment complex that he has just moved into. He wanted just a plain flyer type thing but I suggested that the flyer have tear off sheets at the bottom so now he wants that. Plus he has re-ordered a new batch of business cards.

  • I "hunting" down a specific episode of one of the original Star Trek episodes for someone.

I really have to get off of the computer because I do have some errands to run tommorrow so the sooner I eat something the sooner I can get to bed and get some sleep!

"My New Invention"

I have came up with a idea that was used in my daughters school project. It Turned out It got a lot of attention and everyone wanted one. A friend talked me into submitting it to Invention Technologies, I did and it was approved for in debt search and marketing. Does anyone know how legitimate these places are. This will cost me money that I don't really have right now. Does anyone know someone that dealt with these people before. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

The very simple answer would be for you to patent and market it yourself. That way you avoid any kind of middleman. Once you have patented it yourself then its YOU that decide the terms of payment!

Yes! My last job sucked! (before I started working from home)

I really, really hated it. I hated the low pay. I hated working six days a week! I had to stand on my feet all day! There was the "politics" of it all. The pay was so lousy!

I have read that the best time to quit your job is when you hate getting up in the morning - and I had past that point a long time ago!

Business Idea - Gardening?

Yes, you can even start a business by using your garden!

In my area there is a community garden that the residents use. You should see how much stuff they grow! Even during the late fall and into winter there are still vegetables and herbs that can be harvested!

Do you have a garden? Sometimes you don't even need a big piece of land. You could grow from pots and on your window sill. You could start your own business selling vegetables and herbs and fruit to both people and businesses. And of course you can expand your business to include other things as well. Writing, teaching even drawing and such.

Yes you can start your own business using your garden!

Computer Stuff!

Well, I finally re-connected my scanner back to my computer. I forgot how much I missed it but I had to disconnect it because it wasn't compatible with my new printer.

But a situation came up and I really wanted to use my scanner again and I thought "maybe".

Of course it was a lot of "fun" having to get into the back of my computer and connect and re-connect stuff. And it was a little bit dusty back there too (-;
