SEO and Cuil

Thought I'd just echo what has been going round the blogosphere with my own twist: Cuil (the new search engine from ex-Googlers) has not managed to optimise it's own SEO well enough - search for Cuil using Cuil and the search engine isn't in the top results! This is actually a good sign IMHO though, as it shows that they're not artificially skewing the results in their own favour. This would be very easy to do, although unethical. Personally I wish all the best to Cuil, but really they don't have a chance.

BillsIQ - Find your IQ and learn at the same time

For_opportunitiesBills IQ is a very well done Financial IQ test which is both informative and even entertaining to some extent. The short questionarre only takes a few minutes to complete, and after that a screen will show you a summary of your IQ, and you have the option to continue the report and learn which factors you did and did not have a clear understanding of, along with practical advice on how to improve your knowledge of concepts such as Debt consolidation, Debt relief and Debt help.

According to this service, my IQ is 96% - much higher than the standard 87% for males in my demographic range. But even with this financial knowledge, there were a few areas where I didn't know much, and BillsIQ was able to provide a concise and helpful tip for improvement, and further resources for how to learn more.

I highly recommend you try out this service one day when you have some spare time. It's worth a go, just remember that they will advise you to try out their own services, so shop around before investing anything. But with the free report, you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain. And please let me know your score - I'd love to see if you get more than 96%!

The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk

Alzheimer's is one of the most difficult problems I have had to deal with in the past few years. More and more people are falling victim, and it presents a very real difficulty for family and friends involved. The Alzheimer's Memory Walk is America's largest walk designed to raise awareness and funding for the assistance of people with this debilitating disease.

One of the great difficulties with Alzheimer's is actually acknowledging that you have it. Sometimes this is possible, and sometimes it's not possible. But regardless of personal acknowledgement, someone has to care for the people affected. This Memory Walk aids greatly the efforts to put and end to this disease, and to assist those who are currently affected, whether directly or indirectly. I strongly advise you to join in and help this good cause, at least by promoting it to your friends, and possibly even by joining in yourself.

Back from WYD

Okay, I'm finally back from WYD. The event has been a wonderful experience for me, certainly the best thing I have done in my life. Now I've just got to sit down and think about what has happened, and process the meaning of it all. It's been a hectic time, and it's quite difficult to realise all that has been going on.

Thanks to all the viewers who are still hanging around. I am open to suggestions, so if you have any ideas for what you would like to see on this blog in the future, please don't hesitate to contact me.

SocialSpark is great for Mommy bloggers!

SocialSpark says
We love mommy bloggers! Not only do you create great content, you also send us cookies and keep our bellies full :)
So it's nice to see that all you Mommy bloggers (or "Mummy" as we say here in Australia) are wanted. And SocialSpark is really a great place to earn a little extra income while still being able to stay at home and attend to the children. You could say that SocialSpark is a "work from home" site in a way.

This paid post service offers you (primarily) a paid task which you can accomplish in your own time. There's not need to rush - once your reservation for a post is accepted you have 12 hours to complete the post - so even if it becomes available just as you go to bed it will still be there in the morning for you to finish.

An average of 2 new qualified opportunies are added every day for me. This gives me a great chance to choose only opps which are actually relevant to my blog and lifestlye, increasing the quality of the posts as well as my enjoyment of the task. And if you're a social kind of person, you might like to check out the "Sparks", "props" and comment features available to help you better interact between advertisers, publishers, and any combination of the two.

So if you're looking for some extra cash, like blogging, or just have some time to kill it might be worth checking out SocialSpark. There's a place for everyone and especially Mommy bloggers are appreciated here in this welcoming community.

Optus announces iPhone prices - only $228 with 12m contract!

Optus has officially announced their iPhone prices. And it's cheap - only $228 for the iPhone paid over 12 months.

If you opt for an unlocked phone, it's going to cost you quite a bit more - $736 for the iPhone 8GB. This means you're far better off committing to a 12 month contract, even if you never use the phone during that period - you've saved over $500!

Unfortunately I'll be at World Youth Day when the iPhone is released - anyone want to buy me one?
