Ytube Vid of the Week: The Weave Song

Welcome to JerkTV!

JerkTV, for all of those people out there who don’t know about it, is a production created by Fred Buhl, the host of this exciting show, under a company named FBProductions. FBProduction specializes in video production, photography and web design. Check out their website, here.

I saw this video on Facebook and decided to make it this week’s Ytube Vid of the Week. It’s funny how I saw this video right after I finished doing my hair. I’m so sorry to say that I’ve never experience an argument like this. Doc is #TeamNatural! That means I don’t wear weave. I never have. I’ve been blessed with some amazing hair.

Anyway, The Weave Song made my day. I hope it makes you laugh, too. Check out more of Freddy B’s videos on his YouTube channel, JerkTV.

Is It Time for Me to Move Out?

Hello,

Recently, a few of my friends came to me asking me “Do you think its time for me to move?” I am 22 and I’m finally moving out because I feel like its time for me to experience life on my own. I feel like I’m ready to take this huge step. Some people move out when they are not ready and some do it too late, in my opinion. I believe the right time will come in your heart.

But, of course, I know some people need help realizing these signs to know when to move out. These signs are quite blunt and in your face, too. Let me just state that these are MY opinions, they are not FACTS.
Moving Out
So here are my top three reasons to help with the decision to move out:

Number One: You and your parents can not get along for ANYTHING!!!

Not the little, “I hate my mom!” and then you ask for something. No, you can’t stand them with a passion you don’t want to ask them for ANYTHING, you don’t want to go in the house, and even the scent of them bugs you. It’s when you’re tired of answering their questions, and you feel like you are trap with no freedom.
Then I think it’s time for you to move out.

Number two: Your age or you’re ready.

Yes, when you reach a certain age everyone needs to experience that “living on your own” vibe. I know it’s scary and that “OMG im growing up” feeling sets in but everyone needs to experience at least once. If you are ready to move, I would say take the leap because I in the same boat, and I feel like its going to be an awesome experience.

Number three: You have a kid.

Okay, some parents like to be grandparents and some don’t mind you living with them. But if you have more than three kids in your parents house and they are your live-in-babysitter, than its time for you to go. You have started your own family and you need your own place. Again, just an opinion, I know plenty of people who are the exceptions to them, but very few.

I know there are many more signs, but I feel like these are the top three! If you have any to share, please feel free to comment. I would love to hear
everyone’s opinion!

If there is anything you would like for me to discuss in a later post, please feel free to shoot me an email at vonnieb905@gmail.com!!!

Peace and Love,

Vonni

App of the Week: Track 8

I just worry about glitches and possibly freezing my electronics up. Otherwise, I would use this app, no doubt!

Hide and I’ll Seek: Choice

Roxie and Iggy were at Mr. Gliden’s room, upstairs waiting for Peace and Aston to come. They were waiting for over thirty minutes. Roxie was the only one searching; Iggy was too busy shaking the entire time. Roxie couldn’t open any of the doors upstairs because each one was locked. She didn’t want to go in and risk finding one her classmates. She knew the consequences but what was the point of searching.

Roxie thought when was Aston going to come upstairs.

She was getting impatient and she was tired of being in this school. She knew that this might be her last chance to be alive and as much as it scared her, she wasn’t going to give up on her life.

Roxie and Iggy was standing against the wall when they heard screaming. Roxie ran downstairs. Iggy followed her. She didn’t know exactly where the screaming came from but she saw the Cafeteria light on down the hallway. She ran to the cafeteria. When she got there, she saw three dead bodies and Aston standing in the middle of the floor with the water from the sprinklers pouring on him.

“Aston, what happened?” Roxie asked.

“Peace wanted to save her friends. I told her not to go in there because I knew that the creep was going to do something. She wanted to save them so bad but she ended up getting stuck and I couldn’t save her. So she got burnt right in front of my face. I should have saved her,” Aston said with so much guilt. Roxie knew he felt guilty, she could see it in his eyes.  A projectile screen suddenly made it way down against the cafeteria’s black wall. Roxie knew they were back in the game. It seemed like she was the only one of the three who actually was ready to play. The killer came on the screen and Aston had a blank expression on his face. He wasn’t smiling or mugging. He just looked straightforward, emotionless.

“Peace and Aston. Peace and Aston,” The killer repeated. He was on the screen and in the same dark room he appeared in before. “I told you if you find a person that was not apart of my riddle, they would die. Instead of just one person dying, now there are three dead. Isn’t it a shame? I just had to take a break from the riddles. Someone else needed all my attention, of course.” Mace appeared on the screen and she looked horrible. Each one of her piercing were pulled out, except for her surface piercing. Her arms were dripping with blood from the stabs.  She had a black eye and bruises were all over her body. Aston had to look down. He couldn’t look anymore.

“Ms. Marcena only has hours left to live. The only way you can save her is by doing the next four of my riddles OR you can leave and each one of you classmates left will die before the police even think about coming. You have five minutes to choose,” the creep said. Roxie didn’t want to admit it but she thought about leaving. Roxie wanted to leave but she knew she would always feel guilty for letting these people die. Aston knew he wasn’t leaving. All he had to do was try the riddles and he just might be able to save Mace. Iggy wanted to leave, of course.

They all stared at each and other. Then Roxie and Aston just stared at Iggy. Iggy sighed.

“I know this is wrong but I got to look out for myself. I’m sorry Aston and Roxie.” Iggy said. He walks towards the main entrance.

Roxie just laughed silently. She knew it was going to happen and he might as well leave.

“Iggy, you can go. The door is open.” The creep said on the intercom. Iggy opened the door and walked out. Then they heard Iggy scream and a shot blown from something that sounded somewhat like a gun. Roxie ran to the door but when she pushed open, the door was locked. She couldn’t even see what was outside.

“What happened? What did you do?” Aston asked as he looked at him on the screen.

“I meant that all of you would have to go if you were leaving. Only Iggy left so he had to suffer. It was nothing horrible though just a shot to the head.” The creep replied.

“You didn’t say that all of us had to go.”

“Well, it’s too late now. He’s already dead. Now we should get to those riddles.”

Roxie came into the room and all she could do is stare into space. There was nothing she could do anymore. There were already four people dead tonight and she had a feeling the number was just going to get bigger and bigger.

“This time it’s not really a riddle, it’s more of a scavenger hunt. Find the person that has a black shirt and blue jeans on today. This person always stays in a particular room at a particular time. You have five minutes to find this person.”

Roxie thought how generous that he gave us more time and is he insane? Almost everybody in their school wore a black shirt and blue jeans.

Roxie and Aston looked at each other. There was no way they were going to find out who this person was.

Nail Polish, Where do we start?!

History of Nail Polish
I ran across a good video that teaches the history of nail polish in the course of a minute! It’s a fun fact for my female readers out there. Also, a little of a history of why we may be so attracted to putting this finger paint on our little hands. Take a look at the 1 minute video found on Yahoo about the history of nail polish by clicking the photo below.

Ytube Vid of the Week: Back to School- COMRADEf t. Zach Cummins

Now, I want to take the moment out to introduce you to Comrade and Zach Cummins. Both are Baltimore’s very own talents! I’ve chosen to pick their video to be the YTube Vid of the Week simply because I love this song. It can very well be played on the radio. I can see it now. I’m listening to Z104.3 and the song comes on after the latest Maroon 5 song! A Hit!

I found this video on Comrade’s Channel, COMRADEmuzic. Check it out when you have a chance. This song is of a style of music that I normally don’t see or hear in the streets of Baltimore, which means this song is quite unique. That’s good. I don’t like seeing the same content.

When someone wants me to listen to their music, I have a preconceived notion of what I might hear. Comrade’s channel is a YouTube channel that shocked me, definitely in a good way, though. I’m happy to say that he has my ears and support. Does he have you?

Check out Comrade’s Website, here.

We still open our arms to you with warm greetings because it’s all love here! So why don’t you think about the opportunities for yourself?
Guest Blogging
There are plenty of benefits in guest blogging that Doc’s Castle Media is well aware of. Here are a few reasons that I’ve found on BloggerPro.com that you may familiarize yourself with:

“Free Content for Your Blog

As a blog owner, you will be getting lots of targeted content for your blog in the form of guest posts. If you have a popular blog in any niche, you can expect receiving lots of guest posts for review. So you can reject some of guest posts if they don’t match with your guest blogging guidelines. So you can be very selective about which kind of guest posts you are accepting on your blog.

More Traffic and Business for You

Since you are able to publish lots of high quality posts on your blog in the form of guest posts, you can expect a spike in traffic on your blog. More content which is targeted, unique and comprehensive means more traffic for you. You can expect the revenue increasing in the similar ratio as your blog traffic is increasing.

You can Relax with blogs, we are supposed to produce high quality content on regular basis. And this problem is solved to great extent by guest bloggers. So you can relax or can spend your valuable time on other important tasks in hand.

More Guest Blogging Opportunities for You

Most of guys who will be approaching you for guest blogging will be from your niche. And some of them may have a very popular blog even. So you can ask them about your interest in writing guest posts on their blogs. This way you will be able to find targeted blogs for doing guest blogging.

More Promotion for Your Blog

Most of guest bloggers love to share their guest posts on social media networks where they are active and on their own blog even. So you can expect receiving some automatic link juice and social media buzz for these kinds of blog posts. I have even noticed lots of guest bloggers replies to all incoming comments on their guest posts, which will be totally free and targeted content for your blog.

Are you accepting guest blogging opportunities on your blog, it would be great if you could suggest some more benefits here.

Guest Blogging Benefits for Guest Bloggers

Here is the ultimate list of guest blogging benefits you should be aware about being a guest blogger:

Targeted and High Quality Backlink

You can expect getting few high quality backlinks for your website targeted pages from each guest post. All blog owners allow few backlinks to guest bloggers as a way to say thank you for their high quality guest posts. These kinds of backlinks are highly appreciated by Google especially after Google Penguin update as you are guest blogging on blogs that are based in your niche only.

Free Traffic for Your Blog

Apart from backlinks, you can expect receiving some instant traffic to your blog from links that are placed in your guest post.  Mostly traffic that you will be getting from guest posts will be high quality and engaging. With increase in traffic numbers, you can expect gradual improvement in your blog subscribers which are available on your blog in the form of RSS Feed, Email Subscribe, Facebook Like and Twitter Follow etc.

More Exposure and Branding If you are blogging on popular blogs in your niche, will become popular overnight. Suppose you write on a guest post on a blog that gets 10000 visits per day and your guest post is viewed by 5000 readers of that blog over the period of time, so you are able to present your expertise and brand to so many people with single guest posts only. And if you could afford to write 8-10 guest posts every month over the next one year, you can imagine how much exposure and branding you will be getting for your online business and for yourself through guest blogging only.

Improve Your Writing Skills

Since you are writing for different blogs and each blog owner has its own style of writing and judging the quality of guest posts. So your writing skills will be tested here. You should use your best content as guest post to impress blog owners with your writing skills and to stay away from guest post rejections.

Money Making Opportunities

If somehow you are able to establish yourself as an expert in your niche, there will many more businesses who will be interested in using your guest blogging skills to their advantage in exchange for some monetary benefits.

Build Relations with Other Bloggers

It’s just due to guest blogging you are able to connect and work with the best bloggers in your niche. It will be a great learning curve for you. Apart from guest blogging, there is no alternate to build healthy relationship with fellow bloggers who are unknown to you. You will also be able to connect with their readers through your guest posts and your comment replies.

More Guest Posts for your Own Blog

As you are writing more and more guest posts, other blog owners and their readers are able to know about you and your online blog. There is every chance some of blog owners for whom you had written guest posts will be interested in writing guest posts on your blog as well. Flow of guest post requests coming on my blog increase as I’m writing guest posts on other blogs in the blogging niche.
