Sharing and Growing Your Personal Blog with Social Media

No Comments
social-media-488886_960_720
When sharing your personal blog, it can be tough to self-promotional. It feels unnatural and immodest to some people. You can share your blog with others without appearing to be tooting your own horn. If you’re providing entertainment, information or valuable tools for others, you’re doing them a service. That should make it easier to self-promote. 
Whether you’re sharing personal life stories, hobby advice or personal growth advice, make sure it’s never boring. Never blog about topics that don’t interest you. You’ll want your enthusiasm and personality to shine through. When you’re not passionate about your topic, it shows in the final post. Once you’ve written and compelling or entertaining post, you need to share it on social media to get other eyes on it
Facebook
When you set up your Facebook account, you have the option of creating a Facebook page that will link back to your blog. This will help to differentiate your personal account from the blog. Facebook likes it when posts include pictures as well as a link back to your blog page. You can also build your page to include other people you’d like to connect with in your niche. Share their content and start making connections with others who will find your blog valuable. 
Twitter
Millions of people use Twitter in their daily lives. Twitter is a different platform than places like Facebook. On Twitter, you have 140 characters to get people interested in your information. Each tweet is limited to that many characters so it has to be compelling. Follow back those that follow you. Gain followers by searching for people in your niche with the same interests and following them. A Twitter platform like Tweetdeck or Hootsuite will help you keep track of tweets and topics. 
LinkedIn
This network is great for professional networking. It ranks third behind Facebook and Twitter for connecting with others via social media. When you create a personal profile, you’ll be able to give your qualifications, education and work history if you like. This is a great way for others to see why you’re qualified to give advice. You can join groups on LinkedIn too. This is a great way to connect with readers in your niche. 
Google +
Sharing with Google Plus is another way to gain a readership for your personal blog. It’s new in the world of social media, but it’s growing quickly. You can join a community on Google + where you can connect with others who have the same passions and interests. Circles are a way to add people as connections. Others can view and connect with your circles too. 
Tumblr
This is a visual site that allows others to easily reblog your content to share with their own followers. You can follow or comment on others posts as well. There are communities within your niche where you will find more readers to increase your social network. 
Whether you’re using Twitter, Tumblr or LinkedIn, make sure you’re entertaining, inspiring or informing your audience. Provide them with content that has value. While you may get new readers to your personal blog daily, you want returning readers who will become fans. It all comes down to providing compelling content.

Recently my hard drive crashed, hey I don’t mean that windows decided to be bitchy and make me reinstall it – Anyways it’s really been a long time since I’ve been idiot enough to run Microsoft programs, thanks very much!

Well I mean that my hard drive, spinning away quietly at speedy away irreverently, which all of a sudden emits a scratchy, screeching sound that can only be described as sickening, and immediately wiping out vast swathes of data like some primordial plague lord reaper scorching the continent of Europe with the bubonic. Sure this was one hellish experience, but nothing compared to the misery which began once I hired a hard disk data recovery service.

As a techie patiently enlighten me over the phone, a hard disk data recovery is not always a simple or a clear-cut affair. In order to complete a successful hard disk data recovery, it can either be a simple matter or an intricate one, and either expensive, or rather unreasonably expensive, depending on the severity of the problem.

At times the only problem is that something is not working with the loading mechanism of the hard drive. In fact there more than a dozen of programs and macros which have to load to enable the computer to boot successfully, and if any one of these becomes cross-linked, or has any error at all with one of it’s files, it can potentially cause a crash and necessitate a hard disk data recovery. Fortunately, this is the easy kind – it is even possible to for one to perform the hard disk data recovery with a little know-how and an extra hard drive. Simply slave boot the hard drive to another one, and extract the data off of it – and you are ready to go as easy as pie!

However if you actually scratch the disk’s surface, the hard disk data recovery becomes a much more tricky and a problematic affair. Time and again there are several solutions. Of which, one of them is to do a simple software hard disk data recovery, where you pull as much data off of the hard drive as you physically can, and simply hope the scratch hasn’t affected a spot where it ruined too many of your files. If the hard drive has been physically wrecked – that is to say, if it is badly scratched and won’t spin without doing further damage, or at all – then it must be taken apart physically, and the plates must be examined by sophisticated, expensive machinery. And this is the case where hard disk data recovery can run into the range of thousands of dollars!

Laptops – To Own Or Not To Own?

I have owned a laptop off and on for a number of years. Due to battery life and accessibility, they have just not been a cost-effective solution for work or pleasure. That is until recently.

I have owned a laptop off and on for a number of years. Due to battery life and accessibility, they have just not been a cost-effective solution for work or pleasure. That is until recently.

Last fall, I purchased a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop primarily for work. It has been the best computer investment I have ever made … and I have five computers in my home (Note: I am writing this sitting in the passenger seat of our family SUV after visiting Grandma.).

This is not a commercial for Dell. This is about laptops in general and the minimum specifications you should look for if considering a purchase. Keep in mind, advances are constantly occurring and the technology here will be outdated soon. Use this guide as a minimum starting point.

To me, the biggest concern or problem with a laptop has been its portability … portability meaning the battery is needed. You absolutely have to have a computer with Centrino™ Mobile Technology. The Centrino™ technology allows my battery to power my notebook for up to four hours! Four hours!

With four hours of computer time, you need to be able to access the Internet (Thank you Al Gore). That is where WiFi comes in. Of course you want your laptop to have the modem and cable adaptors, for online hookup, but it would be an absolute crime if you didn’t get WiFi capability. WiFi is nothing more than having a wireless Internet connection, thus no cables or plugs for the laptop.

Third, you want to have as light weight of a laptop as you can without sacrificing keyboard size. This makes it that much easier to carry around and you will find yourself carrying it around more frequently.

Fourth, you want a CD/DVD recorder on board and at least two USB ports. The CD/DVD player allows you to watch movies or backup important information. The USB ports allow you to hook up peripherals such as cameras, printers, etc.

Last, but not least, are the “other things” you need to make your laptop perform as good as its big brother. You want at least 256 RAM (I recommend 512), a 30 GB hard drive (I recommend 60 GB) and a screen and keyboard size that fits you.

Good luck!

An Easy Way to Build a Home Network

Summary:
If you have more than one computer at home, you are probably better off connecting them or networking them together.

Keywords:
network, computer

Article Body:
If you have more than one computer at home, you are probably better off connecting them or networking them together to use the same resources and receive the same internet connection. A home network is very easy to build. Here are some tips.

There are two main types of home networks, wired and wireless. While wired home networks are popular, but they require you to run wires from one computer to another. You might have to drill holes in a wall or run wire under the carpet.

If you don’t want cords running all over the place, you can easily get rid of them with a wireless home network. Wireless home networks are extremely simple to set up. You only need a wireless router and a wireless networking card for each additional computer you would like to hook up. Most wireless networks can send and receive data lightning fast at megabytes per second.

Wireless networks are extremely inexpensive, you can hook up a few computers for less than $200. The great part of wireless networks is that all computers on the wireless network can use the same internet or other resources such as a scanning machine and printer. So if you are looking for a great way to share data and resources among your home computer, choose to build a home network.

The Use Of IT For Business Intelligence

No Comments

Business intelligence can be defined as a set of business processes designed to garner and analyze business information.
It is a vast category of application of programs that includes providing access to data to help an entrepreneur in his business decisions, task of query and reporting, online analytical processing (OLAP), statistical analysis, forecasting and data mining.

Big and small companies collect information to assess the business environment i.e. to acquire a sustainable competitive advantage in the business environment and also cover the areas of marketing research, industry research and competitive analysis. Every business intelligence system has a particular purpose (be it short term or a long term purpose) based on a vision statement or organizational goal.

Business intelligence involves different strategies. The BI task can be handled with the aid of application software. Application software is broadly categorized under class of computer software that enables a computer to function in accordance with what the user desires. The application software is different from the system software that integrates different capabilities of the computer but these are not directly applied to the benefit of the user. The application software is designed to help people be prudent in taking decisions by imparting them accurate, current and requisite information. This is precisely the reason that business intelligence is also referred to as ‘decision-support system’ or DSS.

While framing and implementing a business intelligence program there are several crucial points to bear in mind…

a) The goal or the purpose of the program, in simple terms the goal of the organization that the program will address should be considered. There should be a rough idea of how can the program will lead to better results.

b) Secondly the expense of adopting a new business intelligence program should be estimated. Along with this the risk involved in the business intelligence program should also be calculated and so planning should be done accordingly.

c) A person should also know that who all will be direct and indirect beneficiaries and who will pay for the initiative. Also see what will be the quantitative and qualitative benefits and about employees, shareholders, distribution channels etc.

d) The information so gathered must be tracked into well-defined metrics. A person should be sure of the kind of metrics adopted, its standardization and its performance.

e) A person should establish a procedure to reach the ideal way of measuring the requisite metrics. In this you must also acknowledge what methods to be adopted and the pace at which the organization will collect the data. Make sure that you know about existing industry standards if any and the best way to do the measurements.

f) The business intelligence program should be carefully governed to ensure completion of the desired targets. You may have to make several adjustments or modifications in the program from time to time. The business intelligence program should also be tested for accuracy, reliability and validity. One should also know that how the business intelligence initiative entails a variation in results and how much change was a chance product.

Microsoft Access For Personal Use

No Comments

Much has been said about how Microsoft Access can be used to benefit your business. However, what many people don’t realise is that this database software can also be used to process personal data. Let’s consider some of the applications of Microsoft Access to your life outside of work….

Personal Address Book

IT-Brisbane-02-150x150

Using Microsoft Access, it is possible to create a database containing useful information relating to your family, friends and acquaintances. Each contact is assigned an individual record listing their personal details: name, address, telephone number and email. Other details, including birthdays, anniversaries and upcoming social events, can be recorded. You could also take advantage of the ability of Access to generate reports by producing a list of all birthdays in a particular month. Alternatively, a report could be produced to show the addresses for each person in your database. This is useful, if for example, you are moving house and want to send everyone your new address.

Inventory of Personal Possessions

Many people need to make an inventory of their home contents for insurance purposes. One option is to u

se Microsoft Access to create a database. Each item in your home can be listed. Useful information such as manufacturer, model and purchase price can be documented. The database can further categorise items according to types of article. This can be of value if you wish to generate a report indicating the total cost of electrical items, for example, in your home.

Database for Nutritional Purposes

Many of us are becoming increasingly concerned with keeping our svelte figures intact for many years to come. When it comes to controlling food intake, willpower alone may not be enough, so consider incorporating a nutritional database into your daily routine. It can help you to keep track of your fluctuating weight, calorie intake, exercise regime and even your favourite recipes.

Inventory of a collection of items

Many people like to indulge in a hobby in their free time. As a collector of antiques, stamps or perhaps DVD’s you may need to keep track of all the details relating to your prize possessions. It is possible to use Access to create a database containing all necessary information to help you maintain your level of expertise in your particular field. A DVD database, for example could list movie release dates, directors, stars, special effects, cost of making the film and even your personal rating score, for each film.

If you are having trouble of keeping track of your personal finances, one idea is to create a database listing all personal account transactions. This could help you to keep track of your monthly income and expenditure. Your cash flow status could even be illustrated more clearly by a monthly report. If you are concerned about security and would perhaps prefer other members of your household to see the minutiae of your financial status, the database can be protected with a password.

It is possible to create databases for the above uses from scratch or to use readily available templates. Either way, Microsoft Access training can help you to use this database software to process your personal data more effectively.

Text Search Engines | How Does It Work?

No Comments

Search engines are a common thing that is used whenever the internet is accessed. The most common search engines are free ones like: Google Search and Yahoo! Search. These engines are called internet search engines. They work on the principle of looking for keywords in different articles or files all over the World Wide Web. There are also search engines in your own personal computers.

Most of the time they are general search engines and they are capable of looking for all sorts of files, from documents to music and pictures. These search engines can easily be converted into text search engines by specifying the category that you want to search in.

This type of search engine is most of the time helpful, but it does have its failings. For example, search engine operating on Microsoft Outlook are unable to look up files that are attached documents to emails. For these kinds of searches, you need the help of some Text Search Engine Software that can do them faster and much more meticulously than the regular search engine that your computer is equipped with.

A text search engine is a sub type of the general search engines. Instead of searching for everything that comes up as relevant to the keywords entered, text search engine – as the name imply, focuses on the searching computers and other file storage systems for text that correspond to the data entered by the user. A text search engine works by not only looking up the titles of the files that you search through, but it looks at the document’s whole body of text. This way, if you do not have the exact title of the document you are looking for, you can just look up some keywords that are present in the searched article.

A more in depth look on the workings of a Text Search Engine reveals Pre-processing, indexing, stemming and more.

These procedures help make built in search engines as well as downloaded ones work. Most of these programs need to take root before they can function efficiently. Taking root involves the program breaking down into desired units that are easily retrievable. It then proceeds to Isolate and tag document pieces. It moves on to the process of indexing documents by identifying those that can be considered to fall into the same category.

It then deletes any STOP WORDS, stop words are terms that are deemed to be of little value to the search. If not removed, these stop words can considerably slow down the search process. After these procedures, the program proceeds to index the terms and makes itself ready for use.

Some downloadable Text search engines include: DtSearch Desktop Spider, Lucine, HotBot Desktop, Blinkx, NEO Pro, and others. These text search engines work well and quickly because they have been programmed for such jobs. When you are attempting to look up files in a Microsoft Outlook, any of these search engines would do great. There are also text search engines that are available for download, two of these programs are Lookout Desktop as well as Google Desktop.

These programs will search your computer efficiently and quickly.

Data Recovery Freeware… No cost Peace Of Mind

No Comments

If you have a personal computer on which you use to store even the smallest amount of your work, you owe it to yourself to have a data recovery contingency plan. As marvelous as you PC and Internet connection may be, they are still subject to malfunctions which can cause them to crash. And there is nothing quite like that sinking feeling which comes with the realization that all your bookkeeping records, customer invoices, carefully crafted word processor documents, or personal photos are now out of reach. The good news is that you can have a data recovery contingency plan, and even better, have it at no charge. All you need to do is run an Internet search for data recovery freeware, study the available options, and choose the program or programs best suited to your needs. Finding Data Recovery Freeware Just call up your favorite search engine and enter whichever set of keywords seems the most promising. “Data recovery freeware,” naturally, would be the logical choice, but you can try “data recovery software” free, or “freeware data recovery”–well, you have the idea. When you have a selection of websites offering data recovery freeware, you can begin zeroing in on the programs with the features you require. You will have to register at some of the websites offering data recovery freeware; but only rarely will the webmaster require you to pay a registration fee. When you have registered, you will be able to download your copy of the data recovery freeware; large freeware programs will, of curse, take longer to completely download and install. The download recovery freeware will usually guide you through the installation process. Data Recovery Freeware Precautions One of the things you will have to consider before downloading data recovery freeware–or any freeware, for that matter–is that freeware may only be a limited version of a similar software program for sale by the same manufacturer. Some data recovery freeware programs may come with hidden spyware, or if you are really unlucky, a virus, but if you have the appropriate the security measures running on your PC, you should be able to catch them. Data recovery freeware, most often, is a narrowly-focused program which addresses only one or two aspects of data recovery and would not be widely marketable. You benefit because the owners of the freeware have not spent a ton of money advertising it so can offer it for nothing. So just be persistent, and the chances are better than even that you will find enough different data recovery freeware to protect you no matter what!
