Did You Care About Google Page Rank?

I was told and read that Google page rank was very important since it was a mark of approval by Google and kind of a mark of trust and mark of any website’s importance. So I cared very much about my Google page rank. The best page rank I ever achieved was 4, which I thought at the time to be a great achievement. For no apparent reason in time it turned into 3 and eventually into 2.

The first time it went down it was devastating to me. I never figured out the reasons for it. At that time I was posting regularly and I had a significant number of engaged readers. When it went down to Google page rank 2 I kind of stopped caring about it that much but it still was on my mind. No matter what the secret algorithm and the way to arrive to the page rank Google used it was always changing and it never made much sense. When Google got rid of the page rank altogether it kind of confirmed what some people were saying for quite some time and what I began to suspect: Google page rank never made any sense, it was never a true reflection of the importance and trustworthiness of any website and therefore it should have never been created or abolished long time ago.

Good riddance then.

Two Years After Brown Recluse Spider Bite

It’s been a long time, more than a year, since I posted on this blog. I apologize to everybody for that, especially those who have been my regular readers. I do have a pretty good excuse though, which is being incapacitated for more than a year. In fact I could have died as several people I know of who suffered brown recluse spider bite did die because of it.

Further below I will post a video of what my spider bite wound looked like fairly recently. A few posts below this post you can watch a video of my spider bite wound after 3 months.

What I really would like to know from everybody reading this article or post is, if you think I should write a book about the brown recluse spider bite and what I went through as well as what I have learned about these spiders and their bites and how powerless doctors generally are in trying to help the brown recluse spider bite victims. Write your comments about what you think I should do. Should I write the book or not?

From what I have learned through researching the success of books on similar subjects, I’m not going to make any money from that kind of book. Most likely nobody will buy it. Would you buy my book about the spider bite and everything I learned connected with such a bite?

If many of you will comment that I should write such a book it may persuade me to write it as was my intention before doing my research into a possible demand for it without getting your opinion.

I do have some horrible pictures of the spider bite wound which would be published in the book too. I’m reluctant to post them here or anywhere else in case I do write and publish the book.

Have a look at two videos below showing what the spider bite wound looks like now and what it looked like 7 months after the bite:

My foot with Brown Recluse Spider Bite Wound After 21 Months:

My foot with Brown Recluse Spider Bite Wound after 7 Months:

I think you can get a taste of how horrible the bite was and how it was affecting my ability to do anything, let alone doing something creative like writing blog posts. The first year after the bite I couldn’t walk without crutches and the first fourteen months I couldn’t walk without a medical boot. It was only after 14 months since the spider bite that I could barely walk without a medical boot. I was then able to squeeze my bitten foot into a wide type of a running shoe. When I did that the foot would swell and kind of overflow out of the edges of the running shoe. I couldn’t remove the shoe, for fear of not being able to put it back on during the day later, until getting home at night and then my foot would have a ridiculous shape after getting it out of the shoe which wouldn’t go away until I got up after a night’s sleep.

Go to the comments section now and let me know what you think about it and if I should write a book about the brown recluse spider bite I suffered and everything that I learned about it and from it.

Easy Video Solutions is a new product that is just now being promoted and sold. To make videos easily is something that every marketer would like to be able to do. But can you really make videos easily? From the marketing standpoint that is what they want you to believe. But can it be done, is it a fact or fiction?

I’d say that it’s a bit of both. It is a fact that you can learn how to make good professional looking videos when you follow a good set of instructions. But it’s also a fact that it is not as easy as those trying to sell you their courses on video making make it out to be.

It still requires you to master some skills that may not come naturally to you. You may have to overcome some fears that you may have about being on camera and so on.

And, of course, learning how to make professional looking videos will require time and practice no matter how good the course you are following is.

You need to keep in mind that even if you have an iPhone or other smart phone with a good quality camera which you can use for good quality video making these days, you will still need other equipment like a tripod and a good set of lights and an editing software to name a few.

It’s a fiction to think that just buying a good course on video making will be an easy solution for all your video making problems.

If you realize that you have to put to work everything that is contained in the course and that it will take some time and effort and additional investment into some equipment then buying a good video making course can be a good solution for you when it comes to being able to make good and professional looking marketing videos.

Aside from the hyped name, Easy Video Solutions is a very good product for learning how to make good marketing videos. The authors of the course are both seasoned internet marketers who are making good marketing videos routinely.

They provide instructional videos and 10 video script templates for different kinds of businesses.

If you keep what I wrote above in mind I think that it is very good product for the price they are offering it at. I recommend that you check it out.

If you do decide to buy it I’d like you to post a comment here about how you like it.

If you checked it out and decided not to buy it I’d like to read your comment too.

I think I’m finally back, after a long pause, posting on this blog. I’m still not healed from the brown recluse spider bite which I suffered on September 03, 2013 but the pain is more tolerable and I can focus a bit more.

I derive no joy from writing about Google Chrome after such a long pause but it’s been hard to even find the sites and pages of the most popular sites like YouTube and Yahoo using this browser.

It seems that for the last few months, if not for longer, Google Chrome has a hard time finding Yahoo, YouTube and really any other site. It’s not happening all the time but at least as often, if not more often, than not.

Getting “This Page Is Not Available” when going to YouTube or Yahoo repeatedly is no fun. Nor is it fun getting “Resolving Host” when going to these sites that lasts what seems like forever.

If these things are caused by something else than Google Chrome, which is not entirely impossible, I’d like to know what it is. I do not experience this when I use Firefox almost at all. When there is a problem while using Firefox these days it’s then really almost always a problem with the internet service provider which I can tell by not being able to get to the internet at all.

I’ve heard from other people that Chrome is not working properly for them either. They too have to revert to Firefox quite often.

Another thing that is making Google Chrome incredibly slow at times is waiting for fonts google apis or for ajax google apis. There could be more reasons but the bottom line is that Google Chrome just doesn’t cut it anymore as it used to. It is getting increasingly hard to use. Even if it worked properly it would still be significantly slower than Firefox.

If you too are having similar problems with Google Chrome, I’d like to know. Please mention it in your comment.

You Can Hear Me Sing – Play Instruments

That’s right. As you may or may not know I do play the guitar, harmonica and sometimes ukulele for fun and I also sing for fun. This hobby kept me out of trouble as a youngster and now when I was in incredible pain for months due to the brown recluse spider bite the hobby helped a great deal to maintain my sanity. I could hardly do anything because of the pain but somehow while singing and playing the instruments I was able to partly forget about the pain. All the voices in the two videos below are mine.

In the first video I sing a well known song and as I was recording it I was thinking of all the people that had been so helpful during my affliction. I dedicated the song to them.

In the second video I sing a song dedicated to my Mom. It’s a song by Demis Roussos called Magdalena which happens to be my Mom’s name. To me she’s the Best Mom In The World.

I look forward to your comments on Google Chrome or even my videos and the music in them. Cheers.
