About Career Ramblings

There are so many blogs out there today, where does one go to find good content? We have so many choices where to go, and honestly a lot of them just aren’t that great. Most of the blogs you’ll run across have to do with making money online, and they usually have no clue what they are talking about. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very good blogs about doing this, but they are few and far between…

 

If you are looking for something with good content that is actually helpful you can stop over at Jane May Blogs, she has quite a bit of very good information about ways to make money online. She mentions many tips, tricks and just good ways to do the things you want to, online and even in ‘real life’.

 

Jane May Blogs has sort of a sister site called Career Ramblings, that is essentially about career development, but has so much more there to take in. With a name like Career Ramblings I was pretty much expecting to see a blog about someone bitching and moaning about their career. Blogging about the things that go on in their life and workplace, but it is very far from that.

 

The tagline on the site is ‘Your Professional Development: steps to a successful future’, this tagline is very appropriate for some of the content on the site, as it does pertain to managing your future and making the most of it. Reading through it I found many posts about what students can do to help themselves better prepare for the future, very insightful and interesting reading.

 

A lot of what is on Career Ramblings is helpful stuff that pretty much anyone can use, even the most seasoned professional can learn something I’m sure, but there are some off-topic things that make Career Ramblings have a more personal feeling to it, it’s about business but yet not all business. It’s nice to read through and find sort of a break in the information to gain a bit more insight into the authors, and learn a bit more about who they are, it’s a nice personal touch I think.

 

Quite a bit of what you’ll find on Career Ramblings is advice to the newcomers that are trying to make a go at it in the workplace, such as resume writing tips, and interview tips. You’ll also find much more though, you’ll find advice on promoting an already established business and even tips for getting a business started. The things I’ve found on Career Ramblings are very insightful and helpful, things that can actually help you be everything you can be in your career and in your life. I even found home remodeling, and general money saving tips floating around in there.

 

Overall the writing in the career development related posts is intelligent but not to the point as to confuse people, it is written at a level where everyone can understand it easily, not quite layman’s terms, but still very understandable for even the novice entrepreneur or student. It is done in a friendly style as if they were talking directly to you, almost like you were sitting one on one chatting over coffee.

 

The look and feel of the blog is very good as well, the color scheme is subtle, but personally I might change that background to a darker shade of blue, the main banner sort of blends into it. There are not many ads around to distract you from your reading, they are well placed, and blend in nicely. One thing I might do if I were the owners though is watch the Google ads a bit and maybe filter them, while I was visiting, there was an ad for a ‘get rich quick scheme’ on Career Ramblings, it was gaudy and just out of place. It had, in gold lettering, ‘Get Rich!!!’, and the entire banner was done in a black and sort of metallic gold style. It seemed much out of place, and detracted from the professional feel of the site.

 

Being that I am a ‘professional’ reviewer I could go on and on, the best thing to do is stop by and start reading and learning from their collective knowledge, everyone can always learn more. So this is the end of my review for Career Ramblings, if you wish you can review them as well, it only needs to be 200 words, and they will link back to you, this of course will send a bit of traffic your way and help you out as well. So stop by and check out their Rules post to see what exactly you have to do to get back linked from a PR6 site.

John Chow-Evil Blogger Extraordinarie

Yes John, I do read your blog quite often, but with life and everything I’m a bit behind on the things I need to post about…

If you don’t know who John Chow is, the I suggest you drop by his blog and check it out, he owns The Tech Zone and a few other very popular websites. He is quite a learned person when it comes to making money online, his site features quite a few tips for people just starting out, so by visiting his blog you just might learn something.

 At the moment he is having an ‘Evil Blog’  contest where he is giving away a MicroSoft Zune, and if you have a blog all you have to do is post about the Zune contest to be entered into it.

 One of the prerequisites for the entry is to somehow fit the words ‘make money on the internet’ into the posting as well, I figured since MS wouldn’t give me a Zune for review I might have a chance to get one from John by entering his little contest.

On a side note, I actually met John at CES in 2006, he’s a very interesting to say the least… but more on that at a later date…

DragonSteelMods on YouTube…

If you didn’t know, we have our own YouTube channel, aptly named DragonSteelMods. Here you can find all the movies taken for product reviews, and in-game movies as well for game reviews. The DragonSteelMods channel features 150+ videoa actually, so stop by and check it out when you get the chance and make sure you subscribe as well because I post the movies before the reviews are up, so you can get a peek at what’s coming up for review.

I just updated it yesterday with eight movies of the WowWee DragonFly in action, I need to take a couple more movies and then the review can be posted. When I went to the community center to film the DragonFly, I forgot to take the tail ribbon with me when I went.

If you’re curious, I’m the guy with the hat and ponytail, my friend Wayne helped me out and his friend Barry came over to check it out, as he was very curious about the DragonFly as well. I also took my E-Flite Blade CP RC Helicoptor with me, to play with while the DragonFly was recharging, but it didn’t last long as I crashed it and busted a link on it…

SnoopStick…

Very shortly on DSM I’m going to be posting my review of the SnoopStick from Solid Oak Software. When it was first introduced many people said quite a few things about this product, like it can steal your identity, or it can get your credit card numbers etc, etc etc… Many things were said about it that was just far from the truth, I don’t know why people feel the need to sensationalize things that they really have no clue about…

The review is going to be very in-depth and truly explain what this product is and does, it’s not what everyone claimed it is or was… but it is something that is very useful and overall pretty darn cool…

Look for the review to be posted later today…

The new Logitech G5 Sneek Peek!

4-4-07 UPDATE! Full review is now live on DSM Click HERE to check it out!

Just got this today for review, I guess you could call it Version 2 of the Logitech G5, the main difference is the color and pattern obviously, but if you look close you’ll see there is now two side buttons (YAY!). The pattern on top is actually textured for a better grip on the mouse, also the weights are a bit different as well, the rubber gasket is inside of the weight holder now instead of being on the weights themselves…

DIGG IT!

Here’s a few pics to hold you over till I get the review posted on DragonSteelMods… I’ll get it up next week for you…

The process of website development actually starts when you go for buying domain names. The next step is to buy dedicated hosting plan that best suits the nature of business you are doing. Also keep this in mind while creating the website design. It’s good if you spend a little bit on buying fast broadband connection.

My birthday sucks…

Well I guess this could be part two of the previous post…

My birthday sucked, mainly because I hurt my back… I’ve always had back problems most of my life, but as I get older I’ve found that it takes much longer to heal…

My wifes’ friend is moving and decided to give her her exercise bike that she never uses, so today of course my wife decided that we had to go and get it… It’s a nice bike, on the expensive side actually, but heavy, it’s the type that the handle bars move back and forth as well, but anyway, we went and got the bike no problems, but when we got home is where I ran into a problem. I got the bike out of my suv and went to pick it up, I felt a very sharp pain in my lower back, it actually felt like someone had taken my spine and pulled it apart, I actually heard it, like a tearing sound… not fun at all, so I fell to the ground in pain, but of course I had no help so I still had to get the bike into my house and up to the second floor. Where I live, my house is on a hill, there are 13 steps to get to the first landing then three more to get to the porch, then after that I have to go up to steps, turn left up quite a few steps then turn left again and up 4 more steps to get to the second floor, this was not fun at all, I was sweating the whole time as I was in so much pain… So, now seven hours later I can barely move, I have to walk hunched over, and I’m sure tomorrow morning I will have a lot of trouble getting out of bed…

great birthday for me……… oh well, live and learn


For those of you who are beginners and just started their home business; it’s best to buy cheap web hosting instead of dedicated hosting server. No one can deny the value of website design with regard to search engine rankings. So one must focus on this aspect.

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to…

The title of this post just sounded very appropriate I guess… Today is my birthday, woopee, I hit 35 today… Oh well, just another day for me, don’t really care actually that it’s my birthday, but I wanted to post something here today so I figured that would work….

For kids I guess birthdays are special you get gifts and have a party etc, but I’ve never actually gotten what I wanted for my birthday… I get coffee mugs, anyone need any? I throw them away I have so many of them… when I get clothes it’s always what I don’t like and usually the wrong size as well. I think gift certificates and cash are the best gifts that anyone can ever give or receive that way I can get what I really want or need… Oh well another day goes by
