TwitThis- Ok, so I'm out surfing the Net today while I should be working out and I stumble across something on a web page that says "TwitThis"...Wow, I think to myself never seen this before. Being the curious little monkey that I am I quickly go to my good friend Google and search for it. And lo and behold in all of its glory there it is "TwitThis".
If you use Twitter you know how cool it is and there are hundreds of apps springing up every day to extend it's functionality but this is so very needed. I'm often on web pages and want to send it to my followers so I have to jump over to Twitter, this allows your site guest to easily click on the button and send out your link to his followers. Viral marketing in a flash. Sort of a 2009 twist on a "refer a friend" script, but much safer and cooler. Did I say cool again? Anyway, if you'd like to add this to your blog posts or website there are instructions on the site to spell it out for you. If you use Blogger like I do they point you to a site http://cranialsoup.blogspot.com/2009/01/add-twitthis-button-to-your-blogger.html that walks you step-by-step how to copy and paste the code. Even a fourth grader can do this. No charge to use TwitThis so don't be a boring tweeter get TwitThis now. Now, where are my weights.

Google Adwords is one of the reigning champions when it comes to pay-per-click advertising with the search engines. Believe it or not, they launched their program about 8 years ago and it’s been added to and improved upon ever since.
Google is not one to lay dormant. They're constantly adding on enhancements and expanding their services to fit the needs of today's online entrepreneurs.
When Google first launched Adwords, you only had the option of running ads in text format. Well, you know that saying, "You've come a long way baby". It really applies here. Along with text ads, you can also choose from image and video ads.
Let's review your options:
1) Text Ads: The first and still the most popular
of all advertising options. Total lines allowed
are four which include your url. Nothing fancy
here, so make sure your ad copy is powerful
and includes a strong call to action.
2) Image Ads: Utilize your logo or other images for
your ad copy. Can be static or animated. Ads don't
appear on search sites, but are distributed through
out the content network. Make sure you've opted into
the content network in order for your ads to be
Ad formats can be .jpg, gif, or .png. Animated ads
can also be in flash format. Sizes available include:
250X250 square, 468X60 banner, 728X90 leaderboard,
300 X250 inline rectangle, 36X280 large rectangle,
120X600 skyscraper or 60X600 wide skyscraper.
2) Video Ads: How about advertising with short
videos? These ads also appear in Google's Content
Network. The videos appear as a static image and
the viewer must click on the video to actually play
it. If while the video is playing, the viewer clicks
on the url at the bottom of the ad, or clicks on the
video while it's playing, they are instantly taken
to the advertisers website. This type of ad can be
purchased on a CPC, (when they click and go to your
site) or on a CPM basis, (when the video is played).
As a side note, you can also reach cell phone users with "Mobile Ads". If a cell phone user searchesGoogle, ads are displayed. Only 2 lines of text with your url being the third line. Advertisers can choose from pay per click, (when someone visits your mobile site), or "pay per call", when they click on the call button. Image ads are also available here.
So there you have it. In case you thought Google only offered text ads, now you know all of your available options. No matter if you choose text, image, video or mobile ads, Google Adwords is definitely an innovator when it comes to pay-per-click advertising. Make sure
to include this leader in your next online advertising campaign.

So tomorrow is the biggest romantic day of the year. Well, that’s what they tell me. I guess it depends on who you live with and the status of your relationship. But even if your relationship is in the toilet there’s nothing like a box of gourmet chocolates to brighten your day. And if you don’t have someone who cares enough about you to buy you a box, go and treat yourself. One thing I have learned over the years is the best presents are the ones we give to ourselves. Hey, you’re worth it!
If you want to have a little picture fun and maybe create a little card or photo greeting for someone you love, check out the fun I had at Jpeg Fun.
