Zookoda – Email for your Blog

in Blogging/Internet/Review by

It’s important that bloggers offer an email option for readers – some people like to receive content this way.

Zookoda is a web-based email marketing application designed specifically for blog publishers. Blog email allows bloggers to, among other things, email posts to readers on a periodic basis.

Zookoda is packed with features and it’s hard to believe it’s free. Other services I tested charged a million dollars for all the features found in Zookoda.

Zookoda gives publishers control over subscriptions and confirmations, email design and content, and broadcast times and conditions. Creating nice looking emails is easy with the two billion templates you can select from.

Zookoda’s core function is to drive traffic back to the blog owners site, by providing summary (“teaser”) content in an email newsletter.

Zookoda provides you with everything you might possibly need to manage your own mailing list – with signup forms, list management tools, and lots of options about what to send, if to send it on a schedule, and so on.

If you have ever wanted to setup a mailing list for a newsletter – maybe for your blog or website, but didn’t know where to start, then help is at hand in the form of Zookoda.

Have a great day!

Full RSS Feeds on my blog

in Adsense/Article/Blogging/Internet/Monetize/Wordpress by

I switched my blog’s RSS feeds from partial feeds to full text feeds. Past I used partial text feed for several reasons.

First, since RSS Subscribers get to read the full blog content inside their newsreaders, they would never visit my actual blog. I think my pageviews will decrease then would impact the advertising revenue, such as Google Adsense. As we know Google Adsense is a PPC program, more traffic, more pageviews, and more money. 😉

Second, you could get my content for your own sites easily. Just install auto blog, add my feed into your blog, then you will get all my content into your blog.

Inspirated by Digital Inspiration posting Do You Publish Full Text Feeds Or Partial RSS Feeds?, I will try to publish my RSS feeds with full text feeds.

I have my own reason. First, let’s try this method. Hopefully my RSS Subscribers would grow. Second, I had enabled feedvertising on my blog. It’s would be an alternative way to monetize my blog beside Google Adsense.

Hopefully I would get good result about this. Wish me luck! 😀

Accent Card Visa is Alive

in Internet by

According to my previous post about accent card, my old accent card no longer available anymore. I have to request a new card from Accent card, Accent Card VISA.

Finally, this morning I got a new accent card visa to replace my old accent card. I’m so exciting 🙂

When you receive your bank account information (come with your new accent card visa), your bank account first needs to be activated. You can not log into your online banking until the account is active.

How to use your new card? You need to activate your new Bank account first then activate your VISA card.

Here is the sequence to activate your new BANK account, especially for withdraw PayPal:

  • Bank account will be activated as soon as it receives the first transfer (any amount, even Micro Deposit). Note: Paypal will make two Micro deposits when you add this new BANK account into your Paypal account. You can ask accent card visa, by email support[at]accentcardvisa[dot]com, to to obtain the bank information. As we know, we need Bank name, account type, ABA number, and account number. Tips from me: Don’t forget to add your name and card number in the first line of your email 😉
  • As soon as the first deposit is received, the bank account is live and can be accessed via online banking. You can login into www.tomatobank.com after 2-3 days from you add your bank information into your Paypal. The first transfer from Paypal will arrive at least 2-3 days. If you log in to the online banking and see and error message, stop. Do not keep trying! This means the deposit has not yet credited to your account. Repeated attempts will lock you out.
  • After Paypal have made two deposits, go to www.tomatobank.com, enter Access ID: your bank account number and password. The default password is Accent1$.
  • You will be prompted to change your password.
  • Please do not attempt multiple logins – you will lock yourself out of your account.

Here is the sequence to activate your accent card VISA:

  • In the USA, you can call an 800 number that is on the decal on your card.
  • Outside of the USA, use the card at an ATM ? put the card in the ATM and enter your PIN, select Balance Inquiry.Your card is now active
  • To withdraw from an ATM, select CHECKING.

That’s it. Have a great day!

Cafe.com – Social Gaming Platform

in Fun/Review by

Cafe.com has a new social gaming site that allows people to come to the site and play a number of different games. It has two very interesting advantages, one of which is extremely unique.

First, It allows players to play together at the same time. When you play any of the games you will often play them side by side with several other players. You can chat and message back and forth with other players as you play the game of your choice.

cafe.comSecond, the unique aspect is that you can help the other players. Imagine going to Las Vegas and sitting down to play cards against the house. Half way through a hand another player turns to you and says, “Hey buddy, would it help if I gave you an Ace of Spades?” You reply,”sure and he gives you a card, and you win the hand.” A couple hands later you see his hand and notice that he would have a straight flush if he had a 2 of hearts and you have a 2 of hearts, so you offer and give him a 2 of hearts and he beats the house.

Cafe.com is the place to congregate on the Internet. Meet people, chat and play exciting games for free with friends and fellow gamers.
