One of my favourite songs from Samantha Fox is: Naughty Girls (Need Love Too); she did a collaboration with Full Force on that one.

Back in 1988, the British singer, actress and former pin-up model had a lot of people singing along to her music whenever she performed it on stage, or whenever it was played on the radio.

Here is the video for Samantha Fox's, Naughty Girls (Need Love Too) featuring Full Force. Enjoy!

Five Tips That Would Help You Along Your Blogging Journey

A good blogger will always utilize their blog to the best of their ability (Even if it means working extra hard on Google Blogger to make it a success).

1.) A Positive Attitude Can Take You Far


A positive attitude is one of the most important attributes needed in order to turn any project of yours into something successful (Which includes blogging).

If you are a blogger, you would not do well if you approached blogging with a pessimistic mindset; there is a high chance of you sabotaging your own blog if you operated along those negative lines.

2.) Go In The Direction Of Your Passion


It is a thousand times easier to blog about something that you are passionate about.

Are you passionate about books? Or, are you passionate about music? Wherever your passion lies, follow it and blog about it; your blog will have a sort of magical feel to it if you shared your passion via your blog.

3.) Turn Your Whole Blogging Process Into One Of Fun


I always believed that blogging should be fun (And, anything that falls into the category of fun is way easier to do).

Also, if you have fun while you are blogging, there is a very high chance of you sticking with it.

I also believe that one of the reasons why a lot of people abandoned their blogs is, that the process was no longer fun for them.

4.) Never Give Up


Too many people (especially the newcomers to blogging) have the misplaced notion that their blog can be an overnight success.

The truth is: cyberspace is filled with more websites and blogs than you could ever count in a lifetime; it is heavily saturated with information.

Also, a large percentage of bloggers give up before they can reap the benefits of acquiring a large readership.

Most blogs that are popular today are approximately two years old (And, there are those that are even older).

Persistency definitely pays off!

5.) Always Post Things That Have The Potential Of Benefiting Others


If you know of a method that can save people a lot of money, share it with your readers; they will love you for it (This is merely an example of one of the things that could prove rather beneficial to your readers).

Once your readers are satisfied, they will keep revisiting your blog and some of your readers will be so pleased with your articles that they would share them with the rest of their friends via social media; which will obviously work in your favour.

The Conclusion


I genuinely believe that if you follow these five tips, you will see the positive results that you desire in the blogosphere.

Blogging is a beautiful experience and I would like you to remain a part of it.

A Nice Deep House Track From Paji

Lately, I have been grooving to Germany's Paji; he is a talented musician who likes experimenting with Electronic Dance Music.

One of my favourite tracks from this German artiste is: Children Of Love; it's a beautiful tack that is suitable for starting a dance session, or to simply chill out to.

I hereby dedicate Paji's, Children Of Love to all of the House Music lovers on the entire planet. Enjoy!

I Am Grateful For The Internet

If you are a blogger, you would no doubt have a deep appreciation for the internet, because you know that you cannot get any blogging done without it.

As a matter of fact, the internet has changed the way in which we do a lot of things.

In this twenty-first century, we have the privilege of shopping online, dating online, reading ebooks online and viewing videos online, etcetera.

It is as though the internet has become an extension of us.

The younger ones are always linked to the internet via their smartphones and tablets and for them, internet usage is part of their daily lives.

The internet experience is a beautiful one and I will always be grateful for it.

Once it is used wisely, it can broaden our intellect by allowing us to learn something new everyday.

So, are you as grateful as I am for having the internet?

One Of My Favourite Songs From Captain & Tennille

Captain & Tennille ruled the airwaves back in the seventies; the American husband and wife group is comprised of Daryl Frank Dragon and Cathryn Antoinette "Toni" Tennille.

One of my favourite songs from that talented couple is: Love Will Keep Us Together.

Back in February, 1976, Love Will Keep Us Together won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

Love Will Keep Us Together is an amazing easy listening song.

Without further ado, here is the video for Captain & Tennille's hit song: Love Will Keep Us Together. Enjoy!

Android Is Everywhere

I have noticed that Android smartphones and tablets can be found on sale at almost any store that specializes in electronic items.

If I didn't know better, I would have said that Google wanted to take over the world with their Android merchandise.

Anyway, these Android devices work okay; however, I don't go crazy over them like some of the younger folks.

The Android OS is a very popular one and many of the major electronic manufactures are seeing a rise in profits from the sales of their Android devices.

Android, through the proper marketing from Google and its technological advancements has transformed itself into a household name.

Thank God For Spam Filters

I have to admit that Google handles spam very well; they filter them and they are sent to the spam area.

So far, Google has never made the mistake of placing my innocent commenters in the spam area.

However, Disqus threw at least two people in the spam area and I had to approve one and whitelist the other.

A round of a applause to Google's anti-spam team for keeping the comments on my blog on Google Blogger free of spam. 

Now, I wished that Akismet was as effective as Google, because sometimes their spam filter allows spam to infiltrate my comments thread over on WordPress and it occasionally captures innocent comments that were made by friends and send them to the designated spam area (God knows how many times I had to approve those comments in order to let Akismet know that they were not spam).

Spam can be a pain in the rear end and it is most evident that not all spam filters are perfect.

My Humble Apologies

Laptop HP

Today, my laptop computer chose to misbehave; it didn't grant me the opportunity to post anything on my blog.

Thankfully, I had someone (a good friend of mines) whom I could go by and use their computer.

You may have (or haven't) noticed that I didn't post anything for the earlier part of the day on, Google Blogger.

Hopefully, I should be right back on track tomorrow; if that doesn't happen, it might have to borrow a laptop to get my posts done.

I actually went out of my way to see to it that my posts were updated on Google Blogger; as I type this on the keypad of my friend's computer, it is raining cats and dogs outside.

Blogging is important to me and so are my readers and when it comes to blogging, I always go all the way out!

"Bangla" Is Totally Out Of This World!

Oh my goodness! I have been totally blown away by the musical collaboration of Mercer & Bare; they are out with a smashing Electro track called, Bangla and it is available on the famous Spinnin' Records.

No highly respectable club DJ should be without this track (And, I am sure that my DJ, Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale will agree with me on this one).

This is a great dance track to disturb the peace in the neighbourhood (Play aloud at your own risk and pray that the neighbours do not call the police for you for vibrating their glass windows and doors at a distance).

Here is a taste of Bangla by Mercer & Bare. Enjoy!


Are You On Google Plus?

Google+ (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I will be very straightforward by letting you know that I hardly use Google Plus; if a notification pops up while I am logged in, I will check it out.

Google Plus isn't bad; however, I am not all that crazy over it (I am merely neutral where Google Plus is concerned).

Like any other social network, it can be used for good (Or, the opposite).

Currently, my blogs are set automatically to appear on Google Plus each time I update my posts on WordPress or on Google Blogger; so it is not mandatory for me to be logged in to Google Plus in order for that to happen. 

When one is a hardcore blogger, they are more concerned with blogging that perusing social media like Google Plus.

Some of my friends told me that Google Plus is outright boring and that they don't see the big deal in it.

I even have friends with Google Plus accounts and they don't utilize them; nothing was ever posted on them and it gives one the impression that they joined it out of sheer curiosity.

If you are on Google Plus, I would like to know what you think of it and you are also more than welcomed to tell me what you use it for.

Also, I hereby invite you to follow me on Google Plus.

The Internet Is Saturated With Weight Loss Methods

It is no big guess that countless people are interested in managing their weight; some want to lose the excess weight, while there are those who follow the exercise and diet trend with the intentions of toning up their muscles and remaining slim.

The weight loss industry have realized that people are interested in their bodies and have saturated the market with their weight loss products.

Their advertisements rarely go unnoticed, since they are on all facets of the media.
 
Some diets may work for some people, while there are those who do not see any positive results regardless of what diet plan they are on.

Then there are those weight loss drugs that are supposed to work whether or not a person chooses to restrict their calorie intake.

Many people have disregarded the fact that a lot of the weight loss drugs on the market have side effects and they take them at their own risk; sometimes jeopardizing their own health in the process.

In today's society, plus-sized people are frowned upon by others for carrying around their excess weight.

And, unfortunately, the beauty and fashion industries have brainwashed the masses into accepting their idea of the perfect weight.

So, until people learn to love and accept themselves as they are, the weight loss industry will continue to make huge profits.

One Of My Favourite Songs From EMF

One of my favourite songs from the British Electronic Rock band, EMF is: Unbelievable.

Back in the 20th of July, 1991, Unbelievable made it to the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100.

A sample of Andrew Dice Clay's voice is most prominent on the track; the words, "Oh!" And, "You're so unbelievable," helped in making it it an infectious track.

Here is the video for EMF's, Unbelievable. Enjoy!

I Have Given Blogging My Best Effort

MacBook Air

I have been blogging for quite a few years now and I have always done it for the fun of it; which is why it was so easy for me do.
I left Google Blogger in the past, joined WordPress, rejoined Google Blogger and decided to stick with both Google Blogger and WordPress (You can say that I am enjoying both worlds now).

I Enjoy The Challenge

 

Most bloggers would tell you that it is way easier to get your blog recognized on WordPress (And, they are right, because WordPress is community oriented).

Blogging on Google Blogger takes a lot of extra effort, because of the fact that it is not as easy to locate the blogs that one is interested in (So, one risks the chance of posting something on Google Blogger that may never be found by others within their own blogging community; strange, but true).

A lot of the people who blog on WordPress were once on Google Blogger and they believed that blogging on Google Blogger was a waste of their time and also a waste of their effort.

However, I have decided to experiment with Google Blogger (My intentions are to see if this blog site is worth blogging on and also to find out firsthand if it has the potential for a blogger of becoming equally successful as those bloggers on WordPress).

Well, I am really in for a challenge (I wanted a challenge and I got one).

I Have Visited More Blogs Than I Could Ever Count

 

I have visited blogs all over the blogosphere and not only on Google Blogger and WordPress.

In order for me to give blogging my all, I believe that it is mandatory of me to visit every blog site that I could find on the Internet, read a large portion of those blogs and comment on them.

Blogging is not only about updating the posts on one's blog; it is about full participation and a lot of bloggers have failed to do that.

I Have Contributed Many Hours Towards Blogging

 

I have blogged at home, at work (on my break-time, of course), at friends and out in Nature; I blogged as if there was no tomorrow; which resulted in me having red, tired-looking eyes.

I Am Still Learning All I Can About Blogging

 

Believe it or not, when it comes to blogging, learning never stops.

Almost everyday, blogging experts are always coming up with new concepts and aspects of blogging and I have been digesting all of that information.

I Enjoy Helping The Newcomers And The Experienced Ones

 

Most of the times, when a newcomer to blogging wants assistance with their blogging, I would help them out and when the experienced ones lose their zeal for blogging, I help them to regain it, because I hate to see abandoned blogs.

The Conclusion

 

Blogging, dear friends, is multifaceted; it is not only about me; it is also about all of my fellow bloggers in the blogosphere.

Therefore, it is imperative that I fully submerge myself in the whole blogging experience; which is the only way of giving it my all.

The way I see it is like this: "Don't get yourself into an activity if you know that you are not willing to give it your best effort."
