linkedin-3

What is Linkedin

Linkedin is a well-known social networking website that was designed for people in business, writing and working class to connect each other.

It is also a site where jobless people to look for suitable jobs as according to your country of origin.

 

You can see the user’s occupation, employment history, education level, company of employment and the websites that he is active in.

Another thing you should know is, ANYONE can join in Linkedin , even though you are a homemaker, a student or a jobless person like me.

 

There are thousands of International people online and I even had the chance to connect my ex-classmate who had been working Singapore since 1980’s.

 

Reasons to register Linkein

  1. I had registered Linkedin when I first started my first recipe blog 8 years ago.
  2. Through Linkedin, my recipe blog gets external traffic, people who click onto my blog links and read my articles.
  3. You can see the number of people who had read your posts daily and who had connected you, read your profile and left kind messages in your Message Inbox .
  4. Linkedin doesn’t required any referral links or another user introduction.
  5. You can register it with your email address.

  5. Invitation Sent Message will appear.
  6. If you are not keen to connect with a certain user, press SKIP, it will lead you to another new user.

Connect as many connections ( users) if you can because you will have the higher chances to get Linkedin users to read your Blogjob posts.

You can also read their posts on the HOME page. ( I do read some of them which are interesting )

 

You can also connect the people you want to connect by typing in “BLOGJOB” in the SEARCH box at the top of the page.

There , you can see all the Blogjob users that had connected to Linkedin.

Press FOLLOW to connect them or VIEW to read their profile.

 

I really like Linkedin very much that had helped to generate external traffic to my Blogjob posts.

Bitlanders- Slow but Steady

This is my personal review.

 

230220146276

 

Bitlanders, a site that I had long heard from fellow blogjob friends.

This is the site where you post articles, short greetings, commenting on other microblogs, press the “heart” buttons for likes which is also called “buzz” buttons.

The more buzzes you achieved, more GBM or BM (bitcoins ) you will receive.

GBM and BM are alike Blog points but it takes a lot of effort to achieve 1 GBM.

You will need 10,000,000 BM = 1 GBM

That is why I had mentioned “Slow “

 

Honestly, Bitlanders is alike Facebook and TSU where you post microblogs at least 15 per day but I usually post 5 microblogs, nothing much to blah blah about.

 

150220146061

Microblogs

Microblogs are short sentences that you put on your “Wall” just like Blogjob.

Short sentences such as “How are you?” or  “Good night” are the usual greetings you can find on each profile page.

Some may post daily quotes, jokes or questions as microblogs but remember to put in the source of the quotes before publish.

Blogs

Now, there are 2 types of blogs you can choose from:

  1. a normal blog ( 100 words ), post it and share at social media sites, received less than 30 buzzes. I prefer to post normal blogs because I don’t have to use up my GEMS. These GEMS are important for crucial times, so don’t misused the GEMS.
  2. a good content blog (10000 words) but you need to hit the “Review” button and use up your Gems for the admin to review your blog. Once it has been approved, you  will received tens or hundreds of buzzes which will help you to push up your rank.

 

What is Buzzscore

Buzzscores are the number of times of people press the “buzz” button on your blogs, microblogs , videos and photo gallery.

The more buzz score you have in a day shows how interactive you are on the board.

Buzz are alike “like ” button as in Blogjob.

A lot of people misuse the buzz button but nobody cares about it. Consider it spamming the buzz buttons.

The Buzzscore is calculated at the end of the day and you will be given the BM ( which is the bitcoins ) in your “Reward” page.

As for Asian, depending on the country you reside, I have to wait 8.30pm which is USA 8.30am for my Reward page to work out the figure.

I usually buzz those photos that I like, quotes which are innovative and blogs which are useful.

I don’t spam my buzzes.

 

Increase your GBM or BM (bit coins )

2 ways to do it:

  1. Complete the “Daily Quests”
  2. Complete the “Quests Box”

which are located on the top, right hand side of your wall.

I usually complete them before I head for buzz.

 

 

Conclusion:

Up to today, the 7th day, I have achieved 1,036,911 bitcoins which equals only 1 GBM.

Got to fight for another 9 GBM in order to cash out USD$10 paypal ( I need 10,000,050 bitcoins )

 

It is a slow to earn site but steady as it goes up.

Missing Point Again- My Stupid Blunder

040320146583

Yes, it happened again today.

I had just published a blog post at 2.15pm (Malaysia time) but I wasn’t given 50 points immediately.

Honestly, it was my blunder because I knew that I had to publish my new post AFTER 3pm local time which is 1am USA time.

Let me explain this problem.

Remember that in the past I had send constant messages to Sir @Sheridan about my missing points? In a week, I could experienced 3 times of filling up the missing point forms that one of our fellow blogger also noticed it.

It was Blogjob server problem. I finally realized the problem that had occurred was due to the time zone.

Yes, when the time zone hits at 12am, I would experience missing points almost 80%. If I am not wrong, it is the time slot that changes and maybe the internet line wasn’t quick enough to excess the points into my account.

After several times of sending messages to Sir Sheridan 3 times in a week of the same problems, I finally decided to test out at different time slot.

I managed to “catch” the most suitable time slot which had reduced the frequency of Missing Points occurrence.

  1. Malaysia time before 12pm = USA 10am 
  2. Malaysia time after 3pm = USA 1am

As long I do not publish any post at 2pm Malaysia time ( USA = 12am ) I am SAFE .

However, the last few days I had been too busy with gardening and household chores that I got panicked when I couldn’t reach my daily goal 150 points.

In order to hit my goal for the day, I quickly posted 3 blog posts without looking at the time slot.

Which is the reason why I had to admit that it was my mistake, a stupid blunder that I could had avoided if I had looked at the time before I hit the Publish button.

Sorry again Sir Sheridan, I had to trouble you again to look into my account for the missing points.

It is fortunate that most writers do not experience missing points at any time when publishing their posts.

I guess I belong to one of those unlucky writers, at the wrong time and the wrong place.

Difficulties to Interact at Blogjob

Sorry for not being able to blog here at Blogjob for the past few days.

I was extremely busy with spring cleaning from the 1st of February until the first day of Chinese New Year at 8th February.

You may not find me interacting at Blojob often during these period of time but I did post 2 blog posts per day and tried to interact with other bloggers too.

 

What really happened to BMN? - drawn by peachpurple

Glitch or Internet Speed Problem

However, I had noticed a huge problem here at Blogjob.

I am not sure whether it is the glitch or the Internet speed problem.

You see, I have no problem in publishing new blog post and rarely had any missing points now.

I do post 2 blog posts daily and tried to interact with other bloggers but the webpage is lagging terribly.

I tried to comment in Groups, Forums, Sites and Members but each comment that I had posted did not refresh the page itself.

When I leave my comments, press the button “Post” , the page stays there for the last 3 minutes.

In order words, the page did not refresh and my points was not credited to my account.

When I hit the reload or refresh button, my comments were gone, I had to retype the comments again.

However, when I tried to log in other websites such as Hubpages, I had no problems with leaving comments on hubs and the page refresh itself after I hit the post button.

I thought maybe it was my laptop problem. Hence, I tried to interact with my smartphone.

Unfortunately, the same results happened. The page still doesn’t refresh on its own. It looks like a glitch from the Blogjob network.

 

Good grief, writing isn't easy at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

Error message

Furthermore, I had been facing “pop up” page such as “Server error” , “Webpage Error” which I had gave up after numerous of tries.

I knew that the Blogjob was under maintenance a few days ago but the next day, the site was still as bad as ever, still lags , stays stagnant on the same page, the circle arrow keeps circling for ages.

 

 

Am I the only one experiencing this problem?

Therefore, for the past 7 hours, I managed to achieve 15 points for leaving comments and interacting.

Usually, it just takes 1-2 hours to reach 50 points for interacting.

Now, it is going to take 1/2 day !!

Anyway, if you couldn’t find me answering your questions, please pardon me because the website page doesn’t refresh after I had posted my comments.

I don’t know what went wrong.

Help anyone?

Btw, I had sent a message to sir sheridan.

My Incentive at Blogjob

 

The other day, my FB friends were asking me; “What is your incentive at Blogjob?”

This is an embarrassing question. What is the meaning of “incentive”?

I hit the google search and found out that incentive indicates :

the purpose of a person to do something for a purpose

the object or reasons that encourages you to do something at Blogjob.

Oh I get it now!

So, here are my incentive for writing at Blogjob.

 

8f2295bdd369414cb3ec63cdca27a49f

  1. Are you here to write? 
  • Yes, I am here to write about sharing my recipe posts that I had cooked or baked everyday.
  • I do write at Hubpages but more often here than there.
  • All my recipes are original, home cooked and tested by myself.

 

 

  1. Are you here to share your words and wisdom?
  • I am not Albert Einstein or William Shakespeare.
  • Sharing my knowledge would be my opinion on certain topics that I am keen or talented in.
  • I would prefer to learn from the veteran writers, experienced Bloggers who are kind to share their tips and tricks on writing online and money earning topics.

150220146061

  1. Are you here for the honest interaction?
  • Yes, I do interact everyday, at least 10 posts , leaving my comments but the problem is I don’t receive any return comments.
  • There seems to be more “LIKES” than comments. Don’t you think?
  • Hence, sometimes, I just “LIKE” some posts and carry on reading without commenting.
  • Very disappointed but then, 1 point for every “like” and “comment“, I can accept that.

  1. Are you here for the money?

Well, you can’t deny that!

  • Read the redemption posts.
  • Everyone writer who had redeemed his first Blogjob payment or reached 5000 points / 10,000 points would definitely announce his achievement on the wall or blog post.
  • Blogging for earning money is not a guilt but a taste of satisfaction of victory

 

Good grief, writing isn't easy at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

Good grief, writing isn’t easy at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

  1. Are you here to cheat the system at every corner?

No, definitely not!

I don’t want my account to disappear for a stupid mistake.

Plagiarism and spamming are the most stupid ideas to apply at Blogjob.

You will lose money and your account once Sir Sheridan had been informed.

So, why take the risk? Be honest with your original work.

Write a blog post as your heart desires. That is the way you do it.

Weird Connection

wifi-158401_960_720

Have you ever encounter weird connection when you are outdoor?

Today, I was at another residential area, visiting an old relative at her home.

Her residential area is located 30minutes from my house, different phone number, different username and different modem.

Now , at the moment, the adsl line of her modem was blinking which means there was something wrong with the internet line.

I had tried turning off the modem switch, on it again, still the ADSl light kept blinking.

d-link-87715_960_720

Hence, I changed to another spare modem that she had in hand.

Unfortunately, the same result occurred.

I helped her to make a report by calling the telephone center.

 

Indeed, after the telephonist had checked her line is faulty , spontaneously produced a report number which I had jotted down. It will take 24 hours to 48 hours to fix the internet problem.

It seemed that the internet port had been disconnected or “jumped” which required the technician to fix it.

After I had put down the phone, I tried to go online buy switching on my cellphone wlan.

Immediately, it connected to my home internet line.

Although the modem was turned off, I could use my cellphone to connect the wifi connected to my home modem which was 30minutes from my relatives house.

Isn’t it weird?

I managed to have this weird connection and blogging right now online at Blogjob without the modem on.

modem-1833_960_720

Miracle isn’t it?

I wanted to make sure that the modem username and password were not mine, I had switched the modem on and went into the settings.

Thank goodness , those were hers.

Ironically, this is not the first time I could connect WIFI to home modem when I am out.

I think it is connected to my cellphone WLAN.

Anyway, I had better shut off WLAN and disconnect it.

Otherwise, strangers would be able to access to my WIFI.

 

Have you ever encountered such weird connection?

Persona Paper is Shutting Down

Persona Paper is shutting down.

It is having the same problems as other sites (BBW, BMN, WE, DTC, WN ) that we had known which had closed down last year.

Everyone is blaming on the ads revenue and we can’t blame them for making this final decision.

Writing online at Blogjob wasn't easy, drawn by peachpurple

Writing online  wasn’t easy, drawn by peachpurple

What I have to say

To be honest, I had been writing at Persona Paper since January 2015.

It is almost a year and I am ashamed to admit that I HAD NOT REDEEM any money yet.

The minimum payout is USD$20 but I had earned USD$6 until today.

I do not mind if I am not being paid at all because I had not contributed much at this site.

Persona Paper is alike Mykites and the dead BBW.

I like the writing format, the community harmony and personally, I was surprised that the level of spamming is extremely low. The team management had done well on this part.

 

 

Why I don’t write at Persona paper Often

  1. The only disadvantage is the low earning which had disperse some of its’ writer from writing posts daily.
  2. Another problem was the popping advertisement which had caused my laptop OS failure several times.

According the Norton Anti Virus, it was malware virus from this site because every time I log in Persona paper, the ads kept blocking my view.

Hence with this ads problem, I had cut down on my visits there.

Good grief, writing isn't easy at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

The reasons

Some writers had seen the signs of Persona paper facing some problems for quite some time.

People are pinpointing at Adsense as the main cause to had driven Persona Paper to step into the coffin.

When people reads posts, some may click on the ads to generate revenue to the site. I don’t click to ads on any site because I don’t trust these ads.

Time is money drawn by peachpurple

Kind admin

  1. Although the admin had mentioned that she wasn’t sure who will receive the payments, I am sure that she will try to send out payments via Paypal for those with high amount in pending at the moment.
  2. It was kind of the admin to inform that those writers who are earning less than USD$20 payout, may or may not receive payments too if there is sufficient funds.
  3. Furthermore, writers are given ample time to back up their posts which was kind of the team to be so helpful.

 

Conclusion

Anyway, I am glad to say, I had enjoyed my stay at Persona Paper, although I don’t contribute much posts there due to the abovementioned reasons.

In addition, I won’t be backing up any of my posts either since majority are rants and nonsense article.

Let us not stop writing at whatever sites that had left us.

I will be focusing on Blogjob and Hubpages everyday and hope to meet some of our Persona paper friends here.

Cheers

Bon Voyage Persona Paper!

Why I Don’t Often Write at Persona Paper

Writing online at Blogjob wasn't easy, drawn by peachpurple

drawn by peachpurple

I started to join at Persona paper in early January 2015.

At first, I was pretty active there since Bubblews had been cheating on me since October 2014.

I had to find other baskets to invest my eggs, so I was recommended by a fellow friend to try Persona paper out.

Since the minimum payout is USD$20, I thought that I could cash out fast but something had been bothering me so much.

You see, I use my laptop and sometimes my cellphone to log in Persona Paper site.

The biggest problem is the ads on the site and the so-called malware virus.

Both my laptop and cellphone are protected with anti-virus software which I had downloaded for free.

Whenever I log into my account, search for articles to read, the pages kept pooping out messages that my gadgets are infected with virus in Malay language: “Whatsapp Anda Sudah Lupuk” with the whatsapp green logo.

I had to close the site, start “Full Scan” to make sure there aren’t any virus. Unfortunately , it was confirmed a malware virus.

 

What really happened to BMN? - drawn by peachpurple

drawn by peachpurple

I wasn’t the only one having this problem because when I typed in the message, there are several forums discussing about this message pop ups.

I had to download Malwarebytes in my cellphone to scan and delete the ads virus.

As for my laptop, I had to reformat the whole OS and refrain from using this Persona Paper again.

In the Google chrome Extensions, I found a couple of odd plugins which I had not downloaded.

Removed those odd plugins and restart my laptop. Checked again the extensions, confirmed they are gone.

However, once I start to log in Persona Paper, the pop up ads popped again and the odd plugins reappeared in the Google Chrome extensions.

This is really annoying and tiring. I did the Full Scan and removed the malware virus again.

Now, I use my cellphone to log in this site but not often.

The most is once a week, the least, once a month.

I don’t intend to close my account yet  because my earnings has accumulated to USD$8.

I don’t want to give up yet until I could find a way to stop those malware virus from attacking my laptop.

How to Claim your Missing Points for New Post

The first time when I noticed that My Balance points did not increase after I had submitted a blog post, I panic!

That happened a few months ago and I did not realized that I could claim my missing points by filling up the Missing Point Form. ( click here )

The best way to claim your 50 points is to submit the form IMMEDIATELY or on the same day.

If you planned to claim the 50 points after several days or weeks, you might not succeed because I had tried that and failed to claim them.

When I had found out that Missing Point Form does exist, I was too late. I had submitted 3 new blog posts 1 month ago but didn’t claim them immediately.

I tried to submit the form after 1 month but was not entitled which I believed it is hard to trace back for the admin team. It was my fault.

Do remember these tips:

  1. Always check your Balance Points before publish a new post.
  2. When you noticed that your Balance points DID NOT INCREASE after the new blog post had been submitted and published, claim your Missing Points IMMEDIATELY .
  3. It is not too late to claim your 50 points in 24 hours.

 

How to claim your Missing Points

  1. Fill up the Missing Points Form with:
  2. Your username
  3. Link the post : URL link of your new post (missing point)
  4. Press SUBMIT button
  5. You will receive an acknowledgement page right after the submission.
  6. Remember to save the screen shot of the page in case you need it as an evidence .
  7. You may need it to prove that you had  form if you had not received the entitle 50 points after 48 hours.

I had been experiencing Missing Points 2x a week for the past few months but I don’t mind as long Sir @sheridan did awarded the 50 points into my account very quickly.

However do remember that USA time and Asia time is different.

Do allow Sir Sheridan to wake up before you keep bombarding him with your pleas.

From my experience, it took 12 hours to received the missing 50 points.

Hence, don’t worry.

You will get your points as long you had submitted the Missing Point Form and let Sir Sheridan know about it on his profile wall.

Here are the screen shots that might be helpful to you:

 

Step 1:

Type in your username and copy, paste the URL link of your new blog post that wasn’t given the 50 points by peachpurple

Step 2: Your 50 points is in your account

17 Points Deducted , Again

What really happened to BMN? - drawn by peachpurple

drawn by peachpurple

 

I sure am glad to have posted a thread at the Blogjob Forum.

I wanted to know the reasons why I had been deducted 1 point for  unapproved comment or deleted comment which I did not do.

Having 3 points deducted in 1 week is acceptable but I couldn’t stand it when I had log into my account to encounter -17 points deductions at once.

There you go again, 17 points deducted again for a reason which I had to investigate.

I am grateful that Sir Sheridan had taken the initiative to explain the few possibilities behind the deductions:

  1. the post that I had left comments was deleted by the author of the post.
  2. Short posts, duplicate contents and plagiarism posts were removed from this site which I had commented.
  3. The entire blog post was deleted by the author on purpose.
  4. The author had closed his Blogjob account and removed all his blog posts.

However a couple of days ago, my blog points were deducted 17 points at once.

Hence, I went to check at MyKites instead of Blogjob.

 

 

Low earning puts writer off, drawn by peachpurple

drawn by peachpurple

 

My 6th sense was right.

A fellow blogger from Blogjob had posted an article at MyKites that she had deleted all her blog posts and closed her account here which had resulted to my points of deductions.

A day later, several Blogjob writers had highlighted points deductions on another thread forum too.

You can see the reasons of her actions at MyKites which she had posted. ( Click onto Mykites which will lead to her post)

By now, you should know who the author was.

 

040320146583

 

I am sure there is a misunderstanding of the comments that a writer had left on this author’s blog post.

Although the writer had apologized to the author for her “untactful” comment, which I had not read and I don’t know which post was that about, some of us here are being “punished” for an unfair reason.

Although I couldn’t say who is right or wrong because what I had read was a one side story as I have not heard the other party reasons, I learnt a lesson that one should not act aggressively without pondering the consequences.

I sincerely hope not to encounter another BIG blow of points deduction again.

Please reconsider before you take any actions, there are other writers out here who are innocent.

 

As a fellow MyKites writer had said ”

 Money is not everything in this world. Your health your mind is what’s important. Fighting and bickering won’t do any good. Let go and move on”

I agree with her.
