I switched the script that…

Yesterday, I changed my mind about which script will be powering Sociable Advertising as the original script would not have done what I wanted to do. The first option appears to no longer be in business (at least they don’t respond to Twitter or emails quickly), so I found a better option, XYZ Admarket. It is more expensive, but at the same time has features that I like.

XYZ Admarket also has add-ons that I will purchase in the future after the company is making money. These add-ons will add more useful features to the site, and I will announce each one as I buy and add them to Sociable Advertising.

On a related note, I have purchased the script for WebSearchify.com and have downloaded it to my external hard drive. When I am ready to install it, I am one step closer to launching the web’s newest search engine. I know that in the future I will need to hire web programmers to expand the capabilities of the script, but it will work until my company can afford to do that and has some place for them to work.

Now I need to focus on the rest of my day and my evening shift at work, so take care! 😉

I’m looking to launch…

I’m looking to launch my new business next January via my savings (I’m going to place any tax refund I get into it) and my credit card. The more I can save up by then, the less I will have to put on my credit card.

I will not be launching the social marketplace Gate 90 then, but my advertising solution, Sociable Advertising, and my new search engine, WebSearchify.com. (I will also be moving The WhiteEagle’s Aerie back to a self-hosted WordPress install and the old domain whiteeagleaerie.com then as well.) I just bought the domain for it yesterday for a five-year term as well as the software I’ll need to run it. All that will be on Gate 90 will be a home page with links to the two other sites and a message stating that Gate 90 is returning soon as a social marketplace.

Gate 90 will be the first site to run WordPress of the four sites I have planned. Sociable Advertising will be run off of OIO Publisher, where as WebSearchify.com will be using a script I found on CodeCanyon. CodeCanyon was the best offer I could find for a low price, while having decent capabilities.

Now I’m off to do some more reading and relaxing today and tomorrow, as I’m off work until Friday evening. Take care all! 😉

I’ve got a loose stitch…

I have a loose stitch in my right eye, and the earliest I am expecting to go to Edmonton to see the specialist to get it removed is Tuesday. Until then, I will have to put up with the feeling of it in my eye, especially when I work this afternoon and evening and tomorrow morning and afternoon. At least the weather isn’t storming and the wind isn’t that bad, so I don’t have to worry about stuff blowing into it and making the situation worse.

I’ll let you all know how my emergency appointment goes after I get home that day. Until then, stay safe and warm! 😉

Quotes

Steven Spielberg on Technology

Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.

It’s nice to have a day off work…

It’s nice to have a day off work when I don’t have to rush about trying to get stuff done in a hurry. Today I can just relax and work at my own pace on my own projects. I’m planning on playing some Sims 3 on my Playstation 3 later while my roommate is at… Continue reading It’s nice to have a day off work…

I’m addicted to The Sims 3

I am willing to admit that I am addicted to playing The Sims 3. I spent over eight hours yesterday playing the game, as well as another hour and a half this morning. Compared to the original game for the computer, this version for the PlayStation 3 is more fun and challenging.

Got to leave for work now so take care until the next time I post here. 😉

Writing non-fiction isn’t my strong suite…

Writing non-fiction is not my strong suite, I have come to realize that. I love my facts, logic, and philosophy, but I am having a problem writing a book about the three that isn’t fictional. Maybe I should try to create a fictional story where I can weave these three elements into, or work on one of my fanfiction ideas and integrate these elements into the plot of the story.

Whatever the case, I will likely never publish “Reasonable Philosophy” as I cannot get my mind to focus on writing something that does not have a sense of adventure and/or romance to it. Being a romantic at heart makes it hard to write non-fiction for me it seems, but I will never want to give that part of me up.

I’ve got one goal this year…

I have got one goal to accomplish this year: pay off my credit card debt. I’m hoping to have it done in about ten or eleven months, paying about $450 a month onto it. If I can get that done, I can then redirect most of that money into savings and start saving up faster the necessary money to launch my own company in January 2019 (instead of just $10/paycheck as I’m currently doing).

I hope all of you have a great new year in 2017, and I’m looking forward to posting on this blog during the year ahead. I know there will be challenges to face and overcome in the new year, and I look forward to doing so.

Have a Happy New Year!

I’ve got projects…

I’ve got projects that I am trying to work on in my spare time. Thankfully none of them require any money yet, so I’m quite happy at that.

My main project is writing a non-fiction book called “Reasonable Philosophy”. In it, I am exploring philosophy from a logical and scientific point of view. It’s not an easy book to write as I need to think carefully and logically about how to write what I want to say in the book.

My secondary project is looking for ways to make some more money so that I can launch my new business venture sooner. I’m also looking for things that will make that process smoother to do so.

That’s all I have to share for now, as I’ve got to get ready and head to work (I want a snack before I start work and it takes me about 30 minutes to walk to work.). Take care until the next time I post, my faithful readers. 😉

Canadian Holidays · Personal News

Merry Christmas everyone!

First off, I would like to wish all of my readers a very merry Christmas today. May your day be filled with love, joy, happiness, and family as you celebrate this winter holiday. Peace is unto you and all people around the world.

Secondly, if you haven’t heard Changetip has shut down, so if you want to support this blog via donations, you will have to use the Paypal link in the right-hand column to do so.

Finally, I would like to announce that I have shut down my Facebook account for good. I will no longer be using Facebook in the future but will be using just Google+, Twitter, Reddit, this blog, and my future company’s social networking sites to get the word out about topics I care about. I am also going to be looking at getting Grammarly Premium in the future to help me improve my writing but I would like to pay off my credit card debt first.

Until the next time I post here, may your lives be full of blessings and good tidings!

Quotes

Thomas S. Monson on Christmas

Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.

I’m considering leaving Facebook…

I am considering shutting down my Facebook account due to the lack of usage lately. I prefer Twitter as you need to be precise in what you can post in one hundred forty characters. I also can get out what I am saying to a larger audience than on Facebook, and there is less private information about me in my profile on Twitter. I will be keeping my Google+ and LinkedIn accounts as well, as they have proven useful in the past.

If I do end up shutting down my Facebook account, my readers here of my blog will be among the first to know. Gotta run as I work this afternoon and evening, so take care! 😉
