New RSS To Blog

New RSS To Blog 4.0 version has been released. I'm figuring out how to make full use of it.

It seems like a powerful poster that not only post content for you on auto pilot but has included a lot of useful SEO features as well and it's very covenient. WOW, improved a lot if compare with the previous RSS to Blog.

It looks like easy to install (eventhough to me ;> ), all auto install included the MySQL datebase. However, I'll try and test and test and.... test again, I want to make sure the features like cron jobs will not take up a lot of my resources.

Hmmm...need to check whether the cron jobs will "explode" my server again? hmmm..... let's me test for couple of days.

When I first started

Received checks this morning, last month adsense income dropped. It's because of I was shifting server during that period of time.

I was using a dedicated server and it hanged almost every 2-3 weeks once, then slowly became 1-2 weeks once. Scary, everyday when I woke up in the morning and everynight before I went to bed, I need to check whether my sites are still "alive" or not? Hah, mostly they "died" or "seriously injured" and I need to reboot it all the time...Gee...Ugh...!!

So I end up took up the decision to change server, from one hosting company to another one. There're a lot of hassles by changing server. It took me ages to copy all of the big files from old server to new server completely (it's also because of I know nothing about the technical part). I think partly also because of the cron jobs problem.

That's why my adsense income dropped almost 50% by that. It's a crucial thing to select a hosting or server for your adsense business.
HINT: Not every popular hosting company are having good server and good technical support.

Of cause I wouldn't know which hosting company is the best but I'll know which company is not suitable for adsense business.

Do you have this kind of problem with your current hosting or server? Or haven't? I bet you'll know it one day if you're having thousandsssss of adsense sites. Hehe...

Oh well, I guesss that's life. I'm getting sleepy now ... going to bed. I'll write more when I'm free soon. Tata!


Psss...tell you a secret

I looked like a tom-boy when I was in my teen. Even Patric doesn't know about this.
Hah, what?!! Post my tom-boy pictures????? Ugh, ugh... Nope, there's no way for me to post that kind of scary pictures!!! No way!

I was 12. And I was going through my tom-boy phase.
All my little girly cousins went to the chemist to get their ears pierced. Pffft. Earrings are sissy. They'd swap and share their plastic-bauble ones, fluoro-rubber ones, hippy-beady ones. Star-shaped, square-shaped, teddybear-shaped. Christmas, new year, valentines. Ugh.

I couldn't think of anything more boring and disgusting.

So years later. And I'll be honest. There's nothing more than having a boy friend to inspire oneself to be young, be sexy and goddamnit, live a little. So this weekend I'm going to get my ears pierced!

I guess I never got around to getting them done.
Because by the time I turned 16, I discovered boys...
AND I discovered how they would go into a nibbling frenzie at the mere mention of "virgin ears". Laugh.

Yup, so in the past few weeks I've been on countless shopping missions to find some earrings. Some niiice long dangly ones. I bought 3 pairs :) They were a bit expensive, but hey. A girl must accessorise.
