Livejournal allowed Ads posting, sounds great?

Posted on 23 September 2009 by pinoytutorial

Wrong, this is probably the worst compensation we’ve ever heard. Don’t believe us? Read  on.

We don’t know if we should be excited at the news that finally,  Livejournal bloggers/users will start to get paid. Livejournal, a social networking blog site offers its users the option to post Google ads via Adsense.

At least, after many years (the platform started in 1999) of creating blogs in Livejournal it finally joined the pack of Bloggers and Typepad of utilizing Big G’s cash cow.  “Your Journal – Your Money” – the program’s name which lets LiveJournal’s “loyal” users insert ads into their blog and keep 100% of the earnings (wow, pretty exciting huh?), but after Google takes their cut (BOOO!).

This is the excerpt of the deal from LiveJournal:

Livejournal

To make matters worst, users will need to be PAID LiveJornal members in order to participate on this program. Say that again, you should be a paid member? Are you serious?

How much should I pay to avail of this super “DUPER” deal?

According to the segment, LiveJournal members should pay US$19.95/ year and upgrade their account to participate. It means that before you see a real profit, you must at least earn more than 20 bucks every year. Talking about a total rip-off! Plus, Google will take other charges and how about incurred charges when you use the very friendly 3rd party money offices to manage your account.

Do you still want to join this program?

We guess, the program “Your Journal – Your Money” all points to LiveJournal, which means all the profits and earnings funnel down to their pockets. Many old users and new “would be” bloggers might get turn off on the premium imposed on posting ads, even before earning! Why join this program if Blogger (Blogspot) offers the same and for FREE? Same with Typepad.

As a suggestion, LiveJournal could have imposed the Advertisement charge by making it proportional with the profit of the users. Example, say charge 3% for the first US$ 20 earnings, at the very least users will have a ceiling in case they didn’t earn enough for the year.

Other workarounds could be utilized such that it would be a win-win situation on both users and LiveJournal party and not single-sided only.

10 REASONS WHY PEREZ HILTON’S BLOG IS ODDLY POPULAR

Posted on 05 August 2009 by pinoytutorial

perez6 (click to enlarge)We expect that many people in the Philippines still doesn’t know PEREZ HILTON. If you’re thinking this guy has some sort of relationship with Paris Hilton or it’s her new NICKNAME, well guess what? You are close but not quite!

FYI, this gay guy is one of the most popular celebrity bloggers as of today, if not the most popular of ’em all.

He is mean, controversial and infamous and yet he is ROCKING the world of ONLINE entertainment BUZZ as we speak! Perez Hilton proudly announced in a pop US TV series that because of him blogging has never been the same again! And he felt responsible for REVOLUTIONIZING BLOGGING on this world.

According to Hilton: Now, blogging is not only for people who wants to tell about their pets, miserable life, what they are eating etc. boring stuff

Mario Armando Lavandeira A.K.A Perez Hilton, started as an average “joe” in a GAY magazine industry INSTINCT way back 2000.  It was then he decided to BLOG because he thought  it was “EASY TO DO”. On 2004, he decided to create a website called pagesixsixsix.com and after six months HE CLAIMED that it CRIPPLED his hosting server because of massive traffic fluctuation created by people checking his site. Since then pagesixsix.com was renamed PEREZHILTON.com.

sixsixsix In case you don’t believe he is popular, you could google it out. You might be surprised how in the world can a blog generate an average 6-8 million viewers per day! You could see how many people loves to take a bite about mouth-watering “GOSSIP DELICACIES” cooked by hilton.

So without further adieu, here are the TOP 10 REASONS WHY PEREZ HILTON is DANG too POPULAR.

1. HIS BLOGS ARE CONTROVERSIAL

Visit perezhilton.com, and you could actually see that there is NOTHING really SPECIAL with the design of his website, but LOOK at THE CONTENT, he is good at giving mixed signals to innocent words to spike some controversies.

2. HE LIKES TO DRAW ON CELEBRITIES

Most of the pictures he posted has caricatures with sarcastic and  provocative outlines that could be easily done by a child using paintbrush. Among his favorite outlines are moustaches on the artist’s faces, adult-oriented images drawn on a celebrity, the word “biatch” at the top of someone else’s picture or the word “dork” beside a celebrity.

3. HE DOESN’T FEAR INTRIGUES

In an interview he was asked if he was annoyed or if he fears that someone might not like what he is doing, and his answer was  “NO, I don’t mind at all”. This guy is a good racist as well plus he thinks his opinions are always GOOD!  Just look what happened to MISS AMERICA 2009 candidate CARRIE PREJEAN?

4. HE LOVES DIRTY SARCASMS

Everytime he posts an article, you could always see the mixed signals he sends to the readers. It could either be a simple scenario concerning two actors walking together and he will give the impression that they are GAY! Or maybe a woman and a popular male celebrity eating together inside a restaurant and he will draw an outline next to the girl saying “LUCKY B!atch”
5. HIS TOPICS ARE ALL ABOUT CELEBRITIES AND BIG TIME OFFICIALS

There is nothing more exciting for people at the age 18-24 years old (they constitute the majority of perezhilton.com visitors) than to discover the private lives of celebrities they love. All the GOOD, BAD, DIRTY and CLEAN sides of celebs handed to them on a silver platter imbued with a perezhilton.com seal!

6. HE LIKES TO NAME-CALL AND GIVE ALIASES TO POPULAR CELEBRITIES

His motto, “THE POPULAR THE CELEBRITY IS, THE BETTER TO EXPOSE AND HUMILIATE HIM/HER” and he is really doing a hell of a job.

7. GOOGLE LOVES HIM

We don’t know if it’s the BLACK CHARISMA of PEREZHILTON or the TWO-HUNDRED FIFTY MILLION AVERAGE VIEWERS he contributes to google per month. For whatever reasons, perezhilton.com CAN STILL USE GOOGLE-ADSENSE despite of the TERMS AND CONDITIONS he “maybe” violated. I think there should be a debate on this one. DOES PEREZHILTON violated the POLICY of using GOOGLE ADSENSE? Many people will surely love to comment on that one!

8. HIS ADVERTISERS ARE REALLY PAYING HIM GOOD

If you ever thought of advertising on Perez Hilton blog, a 150×200 pixel ad running for a week would cost you a whooping NINE THOUSAND US DOLLARS. Compare that with TechCrunch where a 30-day ad campaign costs just $10K or even BoingBoing where a 125×125 text ad costs only $350 for a week.

9. LOTS OF LAWSUIT CHARGES FILED AGAINST HIM

As they say, the more publicity you have (positive or negative) the more it catches attention. Legal charges were caused by either the paparazzi or other photo industries claiming PEREZHILTON.com was using their pictures without giving them credits OR, the angry mob of celebrities accusing him of excessive profanity who ends-up filing libel charges costing him millions of dollars. We are quite sure Perezhilton is really REVOLUTIONIZING the meaning of BLOG as we know it today!

10. ONE OF A KIND

Maybe some people think that Perez Hilton is just a whack-job, nuts or just plain crazy. But he is one of a kind. He  is the first blogger who really stepped-out of the limits and borders of ADULT SOCIAL EXPRESSION and still ROCKING the WEB with MILLIONS of followers every day and the amazing part of it all? He doesn’t dance the JAILHOUSE ROCK at FOX RIVER! yet!
