Develop money-making niche sites using Wordpress

Posted by CJCM

There are so many ways to make money on the internet. Blogging is one of them. When it comes to making money via blogging, Wordpress is almost the de-facto standard. I started blogging using the free stuff at www.blogspot.com but after only 4 entries, I moved my blog to Wordpress and I have not looked back since.

Another method of making money in the internet is to create a niche site. Niche site by nature is a very small website but the contents are highy specialized, only related to the niche of the site. While Wordpress is traditionally used for creating highly interactive and frequently updated blogs and websites, it can also be used to create highly static niche sites that requires minimal updates. That is the beauty of Wordpress.

Caroline Middlebrook’s free ebook - Build Niche Sites with WordPressI just came across Caroline Middlebrook’s free e-book on how to build such niche sites using the Wordpress Content Management SYstem (CMS). If you are into niche sites building, I highly recommend this free e-book which was based on Caroline’s real-life experience of building niche sites. If you are not yet into niche sites, her e-book will give you a good introduction and lead you to start building your first niche site effortlessly, using Wordpress of course. And again, it’s FREE.

Thanks Caroline for for sharing with us your valuable experience and made it available to all of us as free e-book. Have a nice day!!

20-30 percent failure rates for solid state drives-based laptops

Posted by CJCM

A large computer manufacturer is getting around 20 percent to 30 percent of the flash-based notebooks it is shipping sent back because of failure rates and performance that simply isn’t meeting customer expectations, said research firm Avian Securities in a report on Monday.

Approximately 10 to 20 percent of the flash notebooks shipping from the large manufacturer are coming back because of technical failure, which is far higher than the one to two percent of notebooks that come back because of technical failure with hard drives.

Who are the large manufacturers? Well, it is not mentioned in the article above but Dell is one of the most aggresive marketers of SSD-based laptops. Co-incidently, Dell sources its flash drives from Samsung.

PayPal withdrawal to credit card completed successfuly

Posted by CJCM

My PayPal withdrawal to credit card transaction completed without any problem after PayPal resolved whatever issues the faced. I initiated the USD100 withdrawal transaction on 25th Jan 2008. My credit card statement shows two dates to complete this transactions, the first transaction date is 10th Feb 2008 and the second date is 12th Feb 2008 as the posting date.

The statement also shows an amount of RM319.33 was credited to my credit card account, which I think is quite a good exchange rate. No other transaction fees was charged by the local bank. So the total fees charged was only USD5 by PayPal.

In general, I think the process to withdraw PayPal fund to credit card is very easy to follow and cost much less compared to other methods previously discussed by a lot of internet marketeers. Thanks to PayPal for making our lives much easier. Well done!
