The New Entrecard Look for 24x7 Online Diva

I've been using the classic templates of Entrecard for the look of my card. I've also been active in my blogging activities and yes, dropping ECs.
But I noticed that I only receive a few organic clicks from the Entrecard site going here. I know I still have to fill this with much useful content but I also thought of another reason for the click turnout.

My card looks boring.

I'd have to admit that because it really is boring. I'm challenged to use photoshop that's why I never get to replace the face of my entrecard blog card.

That's bad especially if you want to make money online. That can also affect your blog's traffic. Internet is still a visual medium. That's why you should always keep up with something pleasing to the eyes when you promote your blog so they'll notice and check it out.

Just like your entrecard blog face.

Well, good thing I stumbled upon free125cards. I only spent around five minutes (because I still have to compare the font types to use) and then I already got a new card face for this blog.

I got so amazed on how easy it was to personalize your 125x125 banner that I'll go back on that site later today to create another banner for my blogging awards. ;)

How about you? Are you contented with your entrecard blog face?

Bye Linux, Hello Windows

It's been almost almost a week since my last post here. I just need to attend to a lot of offline work lately. I'll post more of my online and offline money making adventures here anyway. ;)

Okay, going back to what I should share with you. If you've been reading this blog for sometime now, you already knew about my concern with WiGo.

I'd have to admit that I am also a fan of free WiFi service especially when I'm out, blogging inside the coffee shops around the metro.

It was the other day when my boyfriend told me about his plan of changing the operating system of his Eee Pc because one of his online jobs would require it as the OS.

Luckily, he just sold his EeePC to his aunt and we went to a computer store to buy the same laptop but this time has Windows as its OS.

He felt relieved only for an hour after buying the laptop because he remembered that he should install an anti-virus software right away.

That's when I get to really love Linux. No one (I think) will ever dare create a virus for their OS ;)

Lesson Learned from Alexa

Remember my concern with 24x7 Online Diva's Alexa stats?

Minutes ago, I checked my blog traffic stats online for my new dot com domain. I was surprised to see the update. Take a look at my side bar. You'll see two Alexa buttons, one for my and the other one for the self hosted domain. That was such a big difference in traffic right?

I felt down because I've been working so hard to get traffic to this blog. Anyway, that was a lesson learned and I'm now ready to move on.

I've got to write more posts, continue with the rest of my blogging activities. This number will change, I know... will gradually change.

Lesson learned: Start with a rightaway if you want to make money online using your blog.

Whew Alexa! ;)

Hits4pay: Earn Extra Cash by Viewing Email Ads

If you'd like to make money online, you need to find a lot of legitimate ways of doing it. You can earn through paid posts, surveys and viewing email ads.

Just like Hits4pay. They will let you earn extra cash by just spending some time to view the emails you will receive from their advertisers.

Remember that this is not a get-rich-quick-scheme of any kind. Just like any other means to earn money online, you need to still work and promote this online.

This is an original content I made to inform you about Hits4pay. But if you want a pre-approved ad copy to use, you'll get those from your Hits4pay account site when you sign up now.

Help on Alexa Data

I need your help on this one.

I just checked my Alexa traffic details using my previous url. If you will scroll down on this page you will see the data on the traffic and links.

However, when I tested the same thing in Alexa using my new .com domain (, the details states No Data.

Question: When will I have the same data imported to my new url? How long should I wait if that's the case? Should I report this to them? I would really appreciate your help on my Alexa details. Thanks so much.

When is the Best Time to Write a Blog Post?

Are you a full time blogger or doing this on your spare time?

If you're like me who juggles shifting schedules with blogging activities, then it is very challenging.

Simply because blogging isn't just about blog hopping right? If you want the 'hoppers' to keep coming back then you should offer them something new every time they visit.

It all starts with writing a blog post. Yes, for me it should be writing, not necessarily typing your thoughts in your computer.

So with all these things that we need to attend to, here are some of the best moments when we can write our next 'killer' blog post:

  • Opening your email
  • Doing blog hopping
  • Reading your reader's newest comments
  • Going out on vacation
  • Answering a paid survey
  • Checking your Paypal's latest account balance
  • Writing a paid post
  • Calling your loved ones
  • You call it a day

  • Having a good conversation
  • A challenging confrontation
  • Replying on your reader's newest comments
  • Having a hearty lunch
  • Writing your latest paid post
  • Having a relaxing walk
  • Visiting a new place
  • Reading an inspiring story
  • Talking to a customer service representative on the phone
  • Coming up with other great blogging ideas

How about me?

Well now, I am eating my favorite peanut butter sandwich for breakfast as I am writing this post.

P.S. This is where I would appreciate the best blog writing moments that worked for you. ;)

24x7 Online Diva is a Dot Com Now

Welcome to

Yes, I got a new hosted blog aside from several other hosted ones that I just had this year. Since my goal is to share my online discoveries and make money online, I decided to add this to my growing roster of blogs.

Why should you prefer to have a hosted blog to make money online?

  • Because you will have more flexibility in managing your blog's content and design
  • Because most of the paid blogging activities (posts, reviews, ads) prefer hosted blogs
  • Because a hosted one will give your blog a better command and positioning because of better recall from your readers
If there are some points that I missed here just share it with us okay? ;)

I Can't Drop Back Some EC's Today

I called it a day. That was after my fourth attempt to drop EC's back on some blogs that visited 24x7 Online Diva. Don't worry, I was able to drop some on other blogs but I can't continue for the rest because it took a lot of time for those blogs to load. The worst thing was that I had to reboot my laptop several times because it froze while waiting for their pages to load on my console.

Of course I won't identify those blogs here. If this will continue to happen, I wonder how many visitors will proceed to the next blog instead because of too much waiting time. This will definitely prevent them from making money online.

What do you usually do when the blog you're visiting has the same concern?

Warn Plagiarists with Copyscape

Do you really want to make money online? If you do, then make sure to come up with an original content on all your blog posts.

I've been into personal blogging since 2003 and professional blogging since March this year. Everytime I write a post, I am thinking of my blogging purpose. That inspires me to put my heart and make the most out of blogging about my ideas.

That's why it really bothers me when I read posts from bloggers about their content copied entirely by another blogger. This unjust act just under utilizes the copycat's intellect.

This brings me to check out Copyscape. You can place the banner on your blog to warn plagiarists from copying your content. You can also take advantage of their paid service so you can be informed right away if these copycats did a bad job again.

All of my blogs have these banners from Copyscape. How about in your blog?

Problem with Freebies4Webmasters?

I just received an email from Freebies4Webmasters today. For those who don't know about them yet, this company pays publishers/bloggers by showing their advertiser's ad on your blog. They informed me about some 'changes' in their processes like:

  • they can no longer accept new publisher applications and;
  • some existing publisher accounts will be closed due to advertiser's requirements
I guess I received that email because my account will be one of those that they will remove from their list. I'm good with it because I never really show their ads on my (other) site anyway because of some technical concerns.

Here's the email message that I received from them:

Dear Webmaster,

Due to prevailing conditions for our advertisers, it has been decided we can no longer accept new applications to Freebies4webmasters, and that some existing accounts will be closed.

Some or all of your domains accepted in your publisher account may be removed in the following days due to our advertiser requirements.

Please note that all removed domains that were due payment up to the 1st of October have already been paid.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in your participation of Freebies4Webmasters and give our best wishes to the further success of your website. Publishers who will remain in our network will continue to be paid as normal.

Best Regards,
Freebies4Webmasters Team

For those who have similar concerns with Freebies4Webmasters you don't need to worry. You can still make money online with other opportunities available for you. All you need to do is to keep on producing good content on your blog and paid online opportunities will follow. ;)
