Online Activities

I am an avid Internet user and I like to spend my free time just relaxing and surfing the Web, There are many online websites that are worth visiting in my opinion and I would like to share with my readers what type of sites are fun to visit:

-The first website that I visit often is YouTube which I visit to watch various funny clips. Since you don’t have to pay anything to watch videos on such video streaming websites, I would definitely recommend my readers to visit such sites from time to time and see which are the most popular clips.

-Checking email on a regular basis is not only important, but it can be fun when you are expecting some emails from friends or from family. I check my email daily as I never know who will send me an email next. My email provider does a pretty good job when it comes to filtering spam so I usually do not have to worry about that.

-I definitely enjoy checking the news online and perhaps one of the reasons is that it is so convenient. I can search for any specific topics I have have interest in and it is easier to find various articles than in a traditional newspaper. Also, it does not cost anything.

-I also enjoy visiting various community sites such as forums, chats, or social networking sites. Interacting with others can be a lot of fun, especially if you have something to talk about.

A Few Ways to Invest Money

At some point in my life, I used to have some money on my savings account I managed to save. One thought that immediately came to my mind was how to invest the money to multiply it. What are some of the best ways to multiply my money? I have a few ideas here I would be willing to share with you.

Probably one of the best and my favorite idea is to invest money in real estate. Just the other day, while taking a stroll in my neighborhood, I noticed a nice house for sale. If I bought it, I would be able to let it to somebody who does not own a house. This is not a bad idea at all as homes in my neighborhood are not that expensive compared to the rest of the country or even the town where I live.

Do You Prefer Silver or Gold?

One of the things that people need to take into account when it comes to silver is that silver has many applications. There are many uses for silver and it has the highest electrical conductivity of all metals. Silver is actually useful and this is one of the reasons holding silver bullion has small risk. Whatever happens, nothing is going to change the fact that silver is very pretty and shiny. There is almost going to be demand for it. There was demand for it for the last thousands of years, even before its high electrical conductivity was discovered. People throughout centuries appreciated the looks and durability of silver. It was always considered to be valuable throughout the world. While silver holdings and investing might have been quite controversial, there are many reasons why holding silver bullion is a way to reduce risk. Investing in a diversified portfolio is a proven way to reduce potential risk. Investors should keep that in mind whenever they look for new investment opportunities.

Finding Images

It is no secret that there are many beautiful images and pictures online. However, it is important to know what some of them are copyrighted while some of them are not. This means that you may freely post some types of images on your website as long as the creator of the image allows so. What I wanted to talk about in this post is the fact that you should not just use any image that you find on the Web as chances are that it is copyrighted. There are many websites such as Flickr that allow people to use them without paying any royalties.

How Much Can You Set Aside?

How much money can I set aside each month to increase the number of savings I have on my bank account? I have to admit that personally I do not know the answer to this question, but I guess different people out there are able to set aside different amounts of money each month. For example, there was a time in my life when I was able to easily set aside at least 20% of my monthly income. This definitely allowed me to increase the safety net as much as possible. I was very happy when this was the case. Unfortunately, for some time now I have not been really able to set aside more than 5-10% of my savings. Of course, there are months in my life when I am not even able to set anything aside for obvious reasons. I like it when I can have some money I can put in my savings account as it gives me the feeling of security that i need so much in today’s economy.

Knowing Which Websites You Can Trust

When I spend time surfing the Web, I learn what websites I can trust and what websites I should avoid at all cost. I have learned, for example, that even by looking at a domain name I can already know whether I can trust that particular website or not. There are some trusted domain names that end with .edu or .org that I know I can trust for sure and I know that nothing bad is going to happen to me when I choose to visit one of them.

I wish there were more domain types I knew I could trust. I am still hoping that in the future there are going to be many domain endings informing me what type of website it is that I am visiting.

My Computer is So Slow

I do not know why this has been happening recently, but my computer has been so slow lately. I have to admit that I might be the culprit here and I might be the one to blame for the whole situation. I have been installing a lot of programs lately and those programs probably clogged my PC a lot. One solution to the problem would be to start removing some or even all of those programs, but another solution is going to be to do something completely different than that like using some tools for example. I do not know yet what I am going to do about it yet, but I am going to do something for sure.

Writing Posts in Word

I think that it might benefit some bloggers to write their posts in Microsoft Word and later copy them to WordPress. Some time ago I wrote a post on how to use a search option in MS Word. Today I am going to share with you the techniques you can use to replace a desired word, punctuation or whole text in Word document. This feature will be very useful to your especially if you want to replace for example one word in the whole document with another, similar word.

Just keep reading on how you can replace words and phrases in MS Word. From Edit menu select Replace option. Alternatively you can press Ctrl+H on your keyboard. Then use the search command from Edit menu to find a desired word or phrase and after finding it, replace it with another word or phrase. Lastly, simply use the Replace command from Edit menu by entering the text you wish to change.

Working in MS Word can be efficient and that is why some bloggers recommend doing that.

Depreciating Cash and Investments

Depreciating cash is something that all people should be aware of. In most cases, simply holding money is not a wise decision from a financial point of view. Some say that investing in silver bullion and silver ingots has many advantages and a smart investor should keep that in mind. There is certainly a lot to be said about silver bullion, but the most important things to remember is that silver always had high value throughout the centuries. Overall, this means that it can be viewed as a good investment in many circumstances.

Children and the Internet

Most parents do not have the luxury to be physically present and close to their children when they spend time surfing the Web. Even those stay at home mothers usually cannot dedicate all their spare time to making sure that their children are being supervised at all times. It might be a good idea for parents to seek other solutions that would allow them to be aware to know what it is that their kids do when in front of their computers.

Kids will always be kids and they will always want to have access to something that you do not want them to look at. You will need to use common sense while choosing what they should do and what they shouldn’t.
