Why Change Blogs

You may be wondering why we have changed from a wordpress blog to our new blogger blog.

The answer is simple, money.

While although I like the wordpress platform and it diversity and power, they do not allow google adsense.

Whereas, blogger does. I am not looking to get rich or even support myself solely form blogging, but why not earn a little everyday for doing something you are already doing for free?

The process is simple. I set up a Adsense account with Google, then ad my blogger site, and boom they add ads to my site. Every time one of my readers click on an ad they are interested in, SNAP, a couple cents my pocket.

For that it is a no brainer.

Sorry WordPress, love your software, but $5 to $10 a day is better.

Thank you all for reading!

Wasting Money on Ink Cartridges?

Ever feel like all you do is change you ink cartridge? You buy a new one and boom your printer tells you that you need a new one. One of the main reasons may be it isn’t really empty!  PC World jut did a study on this conspiracy.

The quantity of unused ink ranged from about 8 percent in an Epson-brand cartridge to a whopping 45 percent in an aftermarket cartridge for a Canon printer. After posting low-ink warnings, those printers wouldn’t let us resume printing until we inserted a new cartridge.

Now if that is irritating enough notice what PC World noted in a break down of the cost ink.

If you bought a gallon of the stuff over the life of your printer, you’d have paid about $4731 for a liquid that one aftermarket vendor told us was “cheap” to make. For some perspective, gasoline costs about $3 per gallon (at the moment), while a gallon of Beluga caviar (imagined as a liquid) costs about $18,000–surprisingly, only about four times as expensive as good old printer ink.

There are a few things you can do though to alleviate the cost of ink.

1) Refill it yourself.

2) Software such as GreenPrint can help you save. (PC and Mac)

Although most of us keep on printing till we can’t anymore, I bet this article makes the few that don’t pretty upset at the waste.
