Payperpost V4.0

I just found out that Payperpost has a new version 4.0, I wonder how much different or better it's become since my days of using the old version. Here's a link if anyone wants to check it out PayPerPost v4.0. Who knows maybe you can earn some $$ blogging.



Relaxing at home

Today is a quiet relaxing day, I'm pretty bored and waiting for a computer part and I need to go downtown later.

At least I managed to get an hour tempo run in, it was sweet, it was 60mins for about 9.5 miles, not too shabby for someone getting back into shape.

Alright I gotta figure out something to do.

Renting vs owning a house

Since I'm back in Montreal, I've decided not to move back into my parents house and find an apartment downtown. I know in Montreal they aren't big about having large corporations manage tons of properties but back when I was in the United States for school there were many of these companies. I just saw a link about Real Property Management and they seem like a decent company to be your landlord. I don't know I don't like mine and he's just a small guy, but maybe having a bigger company with rules and people accountable might help. If anyone's looking for properties in the US take a look at what they have.

Alright back to work, more later,


Time to bring this blog back?

I'm sitting at home on this hot Montreal day and I'm thinking of bringing back my old blogs, there are a bunch of blogging sites out there, I'm still part of Payperpost and some others, and I figure if I'm not going to earn tons of cash at work might as well do something with the free time I'll have this semester.

If anyone has any other suggestions fire away!

Travel Insurance

While I was traveling during the Christmas break I was offered traveler's insurance by my airline. I declined since I had insurance in Canada and the US (I'm lucky in that regard) but it made me think a little bit. Having traveled to China, Europe and other far off places, I know that the need for insurance is great, but how many people really pick up the option to get traveler's insurance when they buy their tickets?

That's why grabbing a small insurance policy, even one that's as little as $1 a day while you're away, can be a lifesaver. It can cover things like medical emergencies in a country, emergency evacuation, a doctor's visit, and etc. Click here for a FREE Quote and check how much it is for you, I'm sure it's worth it to save yourself from the medical bills in the end.

Enjoy the new year guys, happy trails!

Very good video on Africa

I saw this video on Africa, specifically on Lagos, Nigeria, and since I haven't posted anything on my blogs in a while I figured someone might enjoy it. Not to spoil the video but it's on one of the largest and fastest growing cities in the world, it's really worth the 15 mins to take a look.

Enjoy and hopefully post a comment,


Tuesday, June 12, 2007 - Bring news to your site and earn cash for linking to content!

I loved blogging about sports, but the thing that's missing with blogging is that sometimes it's too much "talking" and not enough demonstration, so to speak. Wouldn't it be great to link to a news story you're talking about, or post a video on a sporting event you're talking about, so that people reading your blog can catch up to speed? Imagine posting news like that and being able to earn money from the views you get from the people visiting your site?

At The News Room you can embed or mashup video from major press agencies like The Associated Press or Reuters and earn while doing so. The news can be on anything from Technology (great for my other blog) to Sports (see an example down below). It's really easy to embed videos, as you can see from the video below on the 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs, which Ottawa lost I might add, pretty much anyone can do it. It's simple and you can earn up to $4 per thousand impressions (CPM) for visits on your site. Sounds like a great idea, get views to your site, provide news to accompany it, and earn some cash on the side.

I'm hoping to use them more often with related news, so check out the video below and of course let me know what you guys think.

Personal Training

Today I was working out with my roomate's boyfriend, who is a friend of mine from my days at LIU as well, and I'm just thinking about it since I've never had a personal trainer work out with me apart from a coach.

I'm pretty knowledgable since I've gotten a degree in Athletic Training and Sports Sciences, and since I've lifted for a very long time, over 11 years, but still have never had a person pretty much one-on-one workout with me. It's a new feeling but it's pretty cool. I do the same thing for other people, when I take them to the gym, or when I write a program down, but it's cool being on the other side for once.

Anyone have any thoughts on personal training, I can go on and on but I'm thinking of a more abstract point of view right now, but as per usual, comment away!

Random thoughts : Religion and Faith

I don't know about most of you guys but I'm not a very religious guy, I may even be Agnostic or an Atheist, I really don't know which to settle on right now. I was born Catholic, from which you can read more info HERE about being a roman catholic, but I still don't know if I want to follow a religion or not. I respect people who are good and believe in a higher power, not people who think they are Clairvoyant or whatever, but for me the topic of Religion & Faith is a strange one that requires a lot of thought.

What are your thoughts on religion? Maybe I should've posted this on my personal blog, but hey, I'll spread the thoughts and the love all around.

Post your comments and thoughts,


Lifted again and running!

Yep, just a quick update on the running, since I'm a) not travelling much and b) not spending too much time outdoors (until this weekend, but more on that later). I've actually started running real distance, like 4-5 mile runs at decent pace. I've only ran 3-4 days out of the last 2 weeks but hey at least it's a start to getting back into shape.

I still don't know what I want to do, but hopefully running around will get my mind and body focused and me thinking about the possibilities.

I also lifted on Wednesday, and I plan on lifting tomorrow as well, more power to me!

More later,
