Anybody can acquire extra income by showing ads through an affiliate marketing network in their website, blog, e-mail list or messages in their social media networks. The income may even be good if you put an effort in it, working hard and consistently. For an avergae blogger, though, the money earned could likely be something you could by coffee for or just purchase something extra that you might not want to buy using the money from your regular income.
Affiliate marketing is different from regular web marketing in that the advertiser pays for a result they get from their ads being shown by affiliates. There is an affiliate network between the advertiser and the publisher. They deal with the advertiser and the affiliate gets the ads to be shown through the network. This makes it easy and comfortable for the publisher.
Pay4results.eu has been around in Central and Eastern Europe for some years and they are now rapidly expanding their operations in Northern Europe, especially in Finland, Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia. There are several active CPA campaigns as I write this directed to the Nordic market.
The income to be earned for showing these ads varies between tens of cents and several euros for a lead, closed transaction or whatever the adjusted result is fixed for in each individual campaign.
As a publisher it is up to you to decide which ads you want to show in your website. You are the best person to judge what your regular readers may be interested in and thus likely to bring you revenue.
Full Disclosure: I do co-operate with Pay4results.eu and publishing this post may affect my economic interests.
thank you for sending me all those e-mails through Obama.com. I subscribed to them all by myself and I can not blame you for spamming. Nevertheless, I have a couple of issues to talk about.
It is not that I would get too much of your mail. Not too little either. You seem to have a good balance between sending too much or too little.
The actual senders or those who I am supposed to believe are the actual senders are generally well marked. That said, when my inbox suggests that I have a letter from vice president Biden I do not think that the VP wrote that letter in person. At least he did not type it and he probably never checked the list of addressees who have opted out. I hope somebody else did.
Your secretaries of state are a frequent lot to send letters. Since I already know they did not write those letters in person I would prefer that they were signed by the persons who actually wrote them. It is a question of honesty. Can you fix that, Mr. President?
Mr President, it is a bit hard to talk to the leader of Free World about his spouse. But if you excuse me, I would rather receive notices about your whereabouts and doings than those of Mrs. O. The same goes for the vice president and doctor Biden. You and the VP elected the women you married but they were never on the ballot.
Mr President, I have heard that there is another party in the U S of A. Apparently they have something to do with a mammal that does not even exist in your part of our globe. I hope donkeys do.
Mr President, much of the mail I receive under your name is focused on re-electing you. What a waste that is. I can not vote for you although I would want to. Why don’t you send that stuff to those who are eligible to vote and are not sure yet.
One more point, Mr President. After your inauguration the White House suddenly appeared in the World Wide Web. That is good but did you have to do it the old way? I hardly need to explain this, it would be under estimating your intelligence.
Mr President, I shall be back in four years to review how you have improved during your second term. But do by all means not wait till then. You have the power to make things happen now rather than appearing to happen which you have done hitherto.
The Tallinn commuter train service is just great. I live well outside the capital and do not visit it too often. It makes sense to buy a single ticket rather than having a monthly card.
I do not need to have cash with me on board. There is a card I can upload either money or travel time to. Debet card payments are not accepted on board but other than that, I am happy.
Last time I uploaded balance to my rail card, it did not work with Firefox. Chrome was the only of my options to work. Of course I complained in Twitter.
Uploading yesterday, I detected suddenly that there was no problem with Firefox. The Elektriraudtee have a Twitter account of their own and it seems they follow feedback as well. Not to mention their real time updates whenever something extraordinary happens.
There is also a wifi network on trains, allowing me to spend the 70-75 minute journey doing something useful on line. When the rails and trains get modernised there will not be very much to hope for.
I am a happy commuter.

As I blogged for three years ago, late Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, mentioned in a BBC interview recorded as early as November 2007 that Osama bin Laden was dead. As far as she knew he would have been murdered. That part of the interview was not broadcast by the BBC and it was not referred to by main stream media.
Here is the relevant part of the interview for a reminder:
Now that president Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed by US troops last night I take it that we can safely assume he is indeed dead. The question is if he was killed last night or a few years ago. Unfortunately we can not ask Ms Bhutto but the US government just might have some clarifying information to provide.
Here is president Obama’s announcement:
Due to a memory failure earlier this week I ran out of toilet paper this morning and had to inspire. At the corner store, buying – among other essentials – toilet paper, I detected that I had forgotten to pick my new bank debet card and the old one had meanwhile expired. I was lucky enough to have just enough cash for my shopping. Now I should have no problem to remember what I need to do the first thing on Monday.

I did the test again today with a somewhat different result:
It looks like I have become a bit more libertarian (a slide from -6,82 to -7,18) and quite a bit more left-leaning (from -3,50 to -5,38). What has happened in the mean time, one might wonder. Have I changed or has the World around me changed?
Probably both. I do not remember how I answered the individual questions last time but my basic values have certainly not changed as much as the result might indicate. I have certainly gained a few years worth of experience which may have contributed that I have put those questions in a different context than three years ago. Then again, the World has also taken a few steps ahead from that time.
The more I see various governments trying to regulate life of citizens, the less I tend to trust them. That would explain the slight shift towards a libertarian direction. The left slide is a bit more difficult to understand. Maybe it is that the economic crisis was not exactly caused by too much of governmental regulation of the market but rather by lack of it. While I trust governments less than I used to, I definitely also trust corporate businesses much less. When the economy was booming, they did not want the governments around but as soon as they fucked up the economy, they cried for the governments to bail them out.
As always, I regard this sort of tests as entertainment rather than science. Also, some of the questions were not very accurate and the difference between agree/disagree and strongly agree/strongly disagree is not very big.

Related to a discussion about winter weather and road conditions, I searched up a post in this blog a few years back. Embedded in the post is a YouTube video about slippery road conditions in Seattle. The video shows cars bumping into each other as drivers in Seattle are not accustomed to snow and ice on the streets and accordingly have no idea of the appropriate usage of winter tires.
As I tried to watch the video I was encountered with this screen, much to my amazement:
Come on, YouTube! Consequences of human behaviour are often harmful and driving on an icy street without proper tires can certainly have harmful effects but I am buffed to learn that YouTube has a policy of banning coverage of real life situations as they may occur. They obviously have a lot of censoring to be done to turn 100 % of the content into harmless fairy tale with no connection to real life.
Oh, and while I am at it, how harmful is the activity depicted in this clip, so far unbanned and watched by more than 100.000 times? I am adding a screan capture just in case the clip gets removed.
Congress shall make no law disrespecting an establishment of a saloon, or prohibiting the free exploitation thereof; or abridging the freedom to drink, or to brew beer; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble in a drinkhole, and to enjoy the beverages to obtain redress of grievances.
I am sometimes confused to detect what kind of news some people press the like button for on Google Reader. Deaths, accidents and other kind of news that are generally regarded as negative. What is there to like?
For me news about somebody’s death is by definition a sad piece of news. Whatever they did in their life and how much I may have disliked them while they were alive, everybody deservs to die in dignity. Hitting the like button for news like this is just bizarre.
What is the matter with you people?
The Russian president Dmitry Medvedev has issued a statement on the Kremlin web site about a controversial highway construction project through the Khimki Forest. This post is not about the issue itself but about the language of the statement. No doubt it was first issued in Russian and then translated into English.
Be that as it may, I spotted a sentence with no less than 73 words in Medvedev’s release:
Despite the fact that the Government adopted a separate resolution on the construction of a motorway, and despite the fact that this issue was addressed in our judicial system and relevant rulings have been made, yet, our people, namely, representatives of various political parties, ranging from the ruling United Russia party to the opposition parties, as well as representatives of public associations and various expert circles say that this issue requires further analysis.
Say what? That is some qualified gobbledygook that you have to read several times to understand. I think the president wants to say that he is not so sure the highway through Khimki Forest is a good idea and he is not the only one with doubts. That is why he has ordered the project to be suspended and reviewed again.
If that is what he meant, why did he not say so in plain language?
