Glee Season 6: Air Date? Lea Michelle Pregnant?

Glee Season 6 will not be on time as expected by the fans? There are few indications that the final season will be delayed. This means a longer time to wait for the Glee lovers.

The start of the shooting of the final season was supposed to be in July. However, assistant editor Matthew Smith wrote on his twitter on June 30 that he looked for some work. He

“Whats up twitter industry folks. I’m available for work between July 15th and September 1st. Maybe hire me for something?”

After one of his followers involved in a conversation, he added in the last part: “Not sure what is gonna happen. I’m not sure we’re doing a full season again this year. Could be off in the winter.”

To increase the tension to the Glee fans, Chris Colfer’s Twitter account mentioned that he had been “let go from the cast” of the show due to “personal issues.” But it was confirmed by the actor’s manager that he will return and that his Twitter account was hacked.

Meanwhile, Lea Michele’s Twitter account mentioned yesterday that “Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy”. Her message shocked her fans and the Glee supporters around the world. However, BroadwayWorld.com has confirmed with the stars rep that her account has been hacked.

Hypable.com reported that Glee season 6 does not have a home on the schedule and will be held for mid-season, meaning the show will not premiere until early 2015.

Are you excited to watch Glee Season 6?

Seven Best Google Adsense Alternatives 2014

Cannot live without adsense? Many publishers anticipates a life of blogging without Google Adsense as thousands of stories around the world are being shared about being banned. In the realm of expectations, one tends to find the best Google Adsense alternatives out there. Though Adsense is the best in terms of online advertising, there are alternatives out there.

To know that a blogger like me can continue blogging without being bothered about thinking of getting banned from adsense frees me from worry. Adsense alternatives may not provide the level of earnings adsense can give but the hope it brings will be worthwhile. Here are best google adsense alternatives that anybody can use in 2014 or 2015.

1. Infolinks – Considered as the best adsense alternatives because of the earnings that it brings to the publisher. Though it is the best compliment of adsense, Infolinks can be the best alternative. If Adsense gives me $20 per day, Infolinks can make me $10 with the same traffic through my experience. The avenue of making money online through infolinks creates the atmosphere of joy as it serves its purpose, to be the best adsense alternative in my opinion.

Infolinks measures per views not per click which it was supposed to be in the early days of its existence. A publisher can use InText, InSearch, Intag and InFrame as codes in the blog or website. InText is like a hyperlink while InSearch is like a search box. On the other hand, InTag are clickable tags while InFrame produces ads on the spaces of the blog. Infolinks can deliver your earnings through Paypal in monthly basis.

It’s not too late to experiment on the power of Infolinks. Believe me, it’s provides you the best earnings outside of Adsense.

2. Chitika - One of the early PPC in the blogosphere. Chitika has been embraced by many publishers worldwide because it can match adsense in terms of ads appearances. Chitika can be the next alternative if the publisher lives in the United States.

What impresses me about Chitika is the numerous ad formats. It has more formats than that of Google Adsense to maximize your earnings. Here are some of the formats usually being implemented:

550×250 Mega-Unit, 500×250 Mega-Unit, 728×90 Leaderboard, 120×600 Skyscraper, 160×600 Skyscraper, 468×250 Mega-Unit, 468×180 Blog Banner, 468×120 Blog Banner. Though smaller sizes are also available like the 468×90 small Blog Banner, 468×60 mini Blog banner, 550×120 Content Banner, 550×90 Content banner.

Chitika pays through Paypal with the minimum payout of $10. If for some reasons you like it through check, it is possible in $50 minimum payout.

One of the advantages of Chitika is that your blog or website is easily approved.

3. Media.net. Not new to everyone but it is being powered by Yahoo and Bing Networks. Well, this might be the next big thing in PPC. As Bing and Yahoo continue to seek strength in advertising world, Media.net is in the position to carry the task. One of the best things in Media.net is that you will have mentor to converse with you all the time. Customer support is quickly reached. This is also a contextual network of ads that will appear in your blog.

Media.net pays through paypal in a monthly basis. It’s worth trying this adsense alternative. As long as you have the contents, your blog is on the way to be approved quickly. Media.net produces the opportunity for the publishers to earn more revenues. Ads sizes in Media.net are like adsense.

4. Clicksor – Take this not out of your disposal. Clicksor is in the proper place in bringing revenue to your blogs. Just like adsense, the sizes are totally fitted in the blog. Plenty of advertisers are already in Clicksor that the publishers have the time to seize this window of opportunity. The customer support is great because of the online chat.

Interstitial Ads (NEW)

Clicksor plays through paypal also. Give this a chance in your blog and I tell you, you will have a great experience.

5. Kontera – Not totally left behind but still kicking. Kontera may not be as popular as like five years ago but it can still be utilized by a blogger like me. Kontera is similar to Infolinks in a manner it shows the ads, inlinks. Kontera pays out in monthly basis with the minimum payout of $50.

6. Tribal Fusion – Not everybody wants Tribal Fusion as the best adsense alternative because of the high standard it demands of a publisher. However, if you have a high volume of traffic, give it a try. Here are the site requirements:

A minimum of 5,000 unique users per day.

Highly targeted, relevant and regularly
updated content.

Professional site design.

An active user base.

7. Buysellads – New to few but popularly being utilized by thousands of publishers, may they be small, medium, large and media companies. In their website alone it says. “Sell. Serve. Optimize. In One Place.”

Should a Christian run for political office in the Philippines?

flagAre you living in the Philippines? It’s a country where oligarchy exists and the millions of people are suffering from deprivation of wealth. It’s hard to believe that this nation is 94th in the world in the rankings of the most corrupt in 2013 according to BusinessInsider.
Philippines is considered to be the only Christian nation in Southeast Asia yet it is the home of many thieves who controlled the political and economic aspects of the country. These thieves learned the ways of robbing the government’s pocket under the table through deceitful transactions and bribery.

A politician knows that if he is caught stealing public funds, he can get away with it because he can pay all the people like the police and the judges. At worst he can use his money and influence for hire-to-kill against his enemies at a cheap price.

The continuous revelations about lawmakers being involved in the PDAF (Priority Development Assistance Fund) will not go away for now. It’s about billions of public funds that were allocated to ghost projects that should have built better living for the Filipinos. Majority of these lawmakers have no conscience at all as they enriched themselves. “The rich gets richer and the poor becomes poorer” is a reality in this nation.

This is the situation of our country. Let’s get back to the question about a Christian running for political office which deters many believers as to what is the right principle.

“Politics is a dirty business” and don’t ever go that way. I heard this many times since I was a child. My relatives told me that if you want to be a politician, you must be willing to die. It’s scary to listen to them because many politicians here are being killed. It’s so tragic that they are willing to attempt that way just to be or to stay in position.

“Politics is a dirty business” etched in the minds of many that only the few braves are going up against those traditional politicians. These these few braves tend to lose because of lack of money and machinery. It would be hard for the few to topple that five generation family of politicians.

I believe that there’s nothing wrong for a Christian to run for political office. We need upright people to govern this country. We need laws that will not depose the rights of the poor. We need lawmakers whose primary concern is for the welfare of many.

In such a time as this, the Philippines needs Christian leaders who have the heart to alter the destiny this nation. How should Christians be part of the community if they just watch and allow these politicians steal the public funds? 

“Whatever we do, we are to do it for the glory of the Lord, not our own” (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:17).

Vanished! Millions disappear in a split second

rapture-3Imagine the scenes of missing people at the same time that occur in all parts of the world. Cars will collide because drivers vanished in a wink of an eye. How about aircrafts crashing because the pilots disappear also? The cry of the families of the missing will become strong that scientific explanations are not enough. Absolutely, one of the greatest events in the history that is foretold in the bible approaches with great anticipation to those who understands and with a surprise to those who know nothing.

Call it tragedy for those who are left behind. Call it unfortunate for those who are ill prepared. Call it the misdeeds of not knowing the time. Call it a mystery. This is an event that will create havoc to the world.

In the bible in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever”. This is an event when many people who are alive will “be caught” up together or “snatch away”. Nothing happen like this yet in the history of the world that every Christian assumes it to be in the near future.

The Lord Jesus will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. Jesus will command those who are in the grave to be also in the clouds together with the alive. Only the dead in Christ will arise from the grave and those who are alive (only Christians) will be with Jesus in the air.

Happy are those who are going to be raptured but a torment for those who are left behind. Not to neglect the fact that I have the same view as the pre-trib believers. To depart from this world by not going to the Seven Day Tribulation is truly a healthy consolation.

Don’t be left behind. Rapture can happen anytime. You need to have Jesus as your Lord and Savior!

How to Make Money Online Blogging?

make-money-blogging“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18

Back in 2004, I started blogging using my AOL account. Given the privilege to live in the land of “opportunities” called the United States for nine years, I installed the AOL CD which I usually found it on our mailbox. I knew I can write but I had a hard time getting my posts live. I stayed with my AOL blog until I found a better platform which was the Geocities. I can still remember my url: www.geocities.com/gbaybayan. Because of the floating ads at the right side of my blog, I desired of finding another platform, blogger.com.

I never dreamed of making money through my blog. I always wanted just to express myself through the articles and hopefully find some audience. I spent about four hours a day just mastering the blogger or blogger platform at that time. Here’s one of my first set of blog: lastdaysnow.blogspot.com.

It came to pass that within blogger is the “heaven sent” Adsense in which it opens my eyes that anything is possible under the sun. I promoted my blogs though forums and messageboards at that time for those are the only ways I knew. Blogger is the gateway for me to meet friends and to buy my own domain.

To make money online is not an overnight success. It takes time and effort to fully understand how it works. When I kept publishing my articles, I saw some $0.05 per click in my adsense earnings. It talk me about a year to get the $100 threshold in Adsense back in those days. I never gave up and I believed that I am going to pursue blogging as my part-time job.

Once your blog is running and you are publishing articles, you can make money online in many ways.

1. Adsense – Many publishers find Adsense as the best way to earn money online. By placing Adsense in the blog, the maximum possible earnings is on the way. Adsense is easy to incorporate it in your blog. Just copy and paste the code and it is set to go. However, many complain about the difficulties in entering into the Adsense program. Back in the days, it’s was just easy to get approved. Nowadays, it’s like threading a needle. But as long as you have the traffic and the contents, you will get approved in Adsense.

2. Infolinks – It is a compliment to Adsense. It’s easy to get an account. It allows you to integrate ad unites into your pages. Infolinks is the best partner of adsense according to many bloggers. As a publisher, you will get the payment through Paypal. Though some of the readers are annoyed by the Ads, it is still a possible alternative to utilize your content to make money.

3. Private Sponsorships – As your blog becomes authoritative because of your great content, company’s will contact you to place their ads in your blog. Usually, big companies approaches you to offer certain amounts just to place their ads in a given period of time. Sometimes they will ask you for a month just to test if it’s worth their money. But if they found out that your blog has great traffic, they acquire ad placements for a year.

4. Affiliate Programs – There are plenty of affiliate programs that a blogger should try. In affilliate programs, the visitors of your blog will be a potential buyer. Once a visitor purchases a product through those programs, you will get a commission. Amazon is one of the most populare affiliate programs today yet you can also try CJ and ShareaSale. Most of the advertisers want decent amount of traffic before you get their approval.

5. E-Books – Using your blog as an avenue to sell is one of the ways to make money. Blogging is giving up free information to your readers. But to write your success story and sell it through your blog is another side of the coin. It mean’s that the E-Book is unique that you haven’t shared yet in your blog. Many bloggers write E-Books on how they build their blog and found success.

6. Sell Your Blog – If your blog reaches into a full proportion, many rich people will notice about your traffic. They will see the potential of your blog and they will just contact you to buy your blog. Your blog is a great possession like a real estate that others want to have.

There are many factors that will contribute to the success of your journey in blogging. Just take it one step at a time.
