I Might Go Into Business

Business person working on a laptop.

I have to apologize that I have not been writing here in a while, but there is a reason for that.

I am thinking about starting my own business. I know that this might need a little, or even a lot, of explanation.

I have been thinking about Facebook advertising now for a while and talked about it with some friends. One of them is the owner of a new website about dog and cat beds and you can find the pet bed finder Facebook page here.

Now I am working from home most of the time I have realized how much time of the day I loose with my commute.

Not traveling back and forth to work saves me about 2 hours a day. That is 10 hours a week.

Have you ever realize that this is more then a days work hours!

My friend was in the same position and decided to start a website about his hobby. Witch is dogs and cats since he is a pet lover.

He put a lot of thought in it and decided to go for this subject and he even took some classes to figure out how to get started.

I can’t tell you about his website since it is not up and running yet, but as soon as it is I will let you know.

Why I want to go into business

As I mentioned above I realized how much time I lost with traveling back and forth to work and that is one of the reasons.

Another reason is that I believe we are going more into a world that companies will hire less people and more go for hiring contractors for a certain job.

This will save them a lot of money on taxes, health insurance and more of these type of business expenses.

I realize that I have to think about these things myself in the future and have to come up with a waterproof plan.

My plan

It is not easy to come up with a plan on what to start. However, since I already had this website as a kind of hobby and learned the basics on how to set up a website and add content to it I decide to start, just like my friend, and online business.

I have not decided yet what it will be. I have several hobbies that I maybe are able to turn into an online business.

I will have to come up with a business plan and probably have to start doing this in my spare time, that I have more of now, and see how this will end.

My ideas

Here are some of my ideas of hobbies I can convert into a business

  • Motorcycles
  • Landscaping
  • DIY projects
  • Woodworking

These are a few of the hobbies I have that might work.

Next step

The next step is to figure out if people are looking for these subjects online and what they buy for it.

I can imagine that especially woodworking might be a good market idea and me having worked as a carpenter have some knowledge about that subject.

The bad part is that I probably have to use videos for that and I am not ready to invest in video equipment.

This made me realize that there is a lot of work to do before I can even get started with putting anything online. I have to think about things like:

  • Overhead expenses
  • Physical products
  • Digital products
  • Website
  • Social channels
  • Lots more

You see that my plan is still in the “thinking about it” phase and far from ready. That is one of the reasons why I write here about it.

First of all I know that when I write thing down my brain works better and focuses better. And I hope someone can help me with pointing me in a direction where I can find more information about this subject.

Feel free to drop me a line or a comment and help met sort this out,

The days have come to an end when you call a restaurant to speak to the rude hosts. Whether it’s always postponing or having to shout your order through the deafening background noise, it’s always about ordering food. Depending on where you live, opening your web browser can be a delicious meal for you.

There are several web services that allow you to log in, select a restaurant in your area, and order delivery with just a few clicks. Here’s a look at the top five.

It is hard to keep up with new services popping up almost daily. The website Couch Potato Delivery is a great source if you look for the food delivery service reviews. Not just nationwide but also locally.

The best online food delivery services at this moment


Grubhub serves 13 cities with more on the way and hundreds of restaurants in major metropolitan areas across the country. The service has iOS and Android apps to make ordering dinner easier if you’re still in the office and want to pick up, or you’re on the train home and want to order dinner on the go. If Grubhub’s ease of use and restaurant list isn’t enough, your individual online and phone customer service may be enough to control you.


More than 7,000 restaurants in nearly 30 cities in the United States, as well as in London, are uninterrupted (formerly Seamless Web). Seamless is another service that largely supports major metropolitan areas, and partners with restaurants in those areas that don’t offer their own products or need access to a broader group of customers. Seamless features mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Blackberry, and tracks your favorite foods for quick reference later.

Campus food

Bring your state and campus where you live or near Campusfood, and they will guide you through the rest.


Foodler is another service that connects you to local restaurants and allows you to order from their menus and deliver food. Foodler’s specialty is small local restaurants that probably don’t deliver alone, like little cafes and bistros. Foodler also capacities to save you money on other services by not accusing delivery fees and by offering reduced prices to its players. They also offer an incentive program that allows you to accumulate points, which can be exchanged for free meals.

Search by type of cuisine or by address to find out who is delivering in your area and what is available to eat.

Share your opinion in the comments if you have one, but keep it nice and friendly or it will not get approved.


Major Components in a Beer Brewing Kit

If you enjoy beer and are the type that likes to create your own product, I want to believe that you’ve contemplated on brewing your own beer at some point.

neon sign with the word beer

The beer brewing process may seem like a complicated one, and that has probably deterred you from already doing it. The fact that you also have to acquire expensive equipment such as the home beer brewing kit and learn the methods used does not make it any easier.

Nonetheless, brewing your own beer is doable, and if you set yourself to do it, and acquire the right equipment like one of the best beer brewing kit for beginners, you will be a master of the art in no time.

I have written about my hobby of making beer and wine at home here and have some more to add to it.

How long will it take to brew beer?

It can take you quite some time before you can make something drinkable. If you already have a busy schedule, then learning how to brew beer can take even longer.

However, I would like to affirm the fact that there is no specific time frame that one can take to become good at brewing beer.

Once you are familiar with the entire brewing process, it can take up to a whole month for your beer to be ready for drinking. Preparing the required ingredients is the easy part and may only take a few hours; the fermentation has to take place in your home beer brewing kit for about two weeks.

It is important to note that the time taken to ferment can be longer depending on the type of beer you want to make. After the beer-to-be has fully fermented, you will have to give it an additional two weeks for bottle conditioning.

It is important to note that the home beer brewing kit is essential if you want to make good beer. So, what will you find in a beer brewing kit? I have discussed the major ingredients common in most kits.


The hops are essential for adding bitterness to your beer and determine the flavor. We have bittering hops and aroma hops.

The bittering hops are used at the beginning of the boiling process, while the aroma hops are used towards the end of the boiling process to add your desired flavor.


Yeats is vital in the beer brewing process as it converts the sugars in the malt into alcohol. Every home beer brewing kit has to come with yeast, and the yeast can also be in dry or liquid form.


I know you may assume this ingredient to be so obvious. But it is a crucial ingredient in the beer brewing process.

Only filtered water is found in home beer brewing kits because it helps to remove magnesium that helps with the fermentation process.

Malt Extract

A home beer brewing kit has a malt extract which can either be in a dry, or syrupy liquid state. The extract is obtained from grains through malting and contains sugars.

It is important to note that you cannot just interchange dry malt and liquid malt when making beer. If the process calls for dry malt, strictly use dry malt.

I broke my finger

I know that you probably are not to interested in this fact, but since this is my blog I can publish what ever I want.

No, the real reason is that I found out how much you do with your hands and not even realize that your fingers are very important in life.

I was in the gym and helping out a friend with bench pressing when I by accident almost had my finger between the bars of the weights and the bracket to place them on.

I pulled my hand back very fast and unfortunately I hit the wall with it and that is how I broke my index finger on my right hand.

Reason I mention my right hand is the fact that I am right handed and this makes a big difference of course. If I was left handed it would not affect my life so intensly.

Besides that it bothers me in work as a web designer and it is hard for me to type and have to use mostly talk to text software now. That I hate by the way.

I also love to cook and do that about every day. one thing I found that it is very hard to open jars and cans with one hand. And, to be honest, I use a lot of jars since I am a little scared of all the stuff they put in cans.

This was the reason for me to find some sort of device to help me open jars. To be honest I was surprised at first where I found the most helpful tips on what to use for this.

I started on Google just like anyone else would do and where I found the most valuable information about this was on this website for senior citizen.

The had a full page on this subject and it didn’t take me long to find what they called the best jar opener tool and I decided this is what I needed.

It was just a surprise for me that it was on a site for elderly and I am still very young. But it is true it works flaweless.

This made me realize that even when you are young it does not mean that things can happen to you that makes you realize that age is just relative and a number.

I have a different look at my parents and grand parents now. I realize that a lot of the things you take for granded you better appreciate because you never know what can happen the next minute.


Designing The Perfect Website

Just like the products, websites need to be easy to use and look attractive. So by the time your website is prepared, it is necessary to get it tested by the real people.


Major Websites are being tested through wireframe, which is a simple prototype of a webpage showing the basic layout of the website without the colors and images. But is more important to aks the right questions before you start on webdesign.

Through testing done before the site being launched, one can easily identify the usability problems in the website design and can correct them in time. Once the sketching of the ideas has been done and decided which one you want to try, you are full-fledged ready for designing program.


hotoshop is the basic designing program which many website designers use to create graphics for their websites. After the designing part has been completed, then you can start up with the CSS, HTML or PHP.

The major advantage of designing a website is that you can get the web layout designed same as you want it. The designing can be done in Photoshop, the designer usually creates two to three layouts and then show them to the owner of the website, who chooses one out of them and then the designs starts working on the coding part.

Get Feedback

If you are making the website for yourself then you may consult it with your friend or any family member regarding the web design. Or you can find out website templates and make necessary changes to make it into your website. It is easy to make necessary changes in Photoshop rather than in HTML. Thus with the help of web designing software, you can change and finalize the look and feel of the website design.

You can show the layout of your website to the potential customers to get feedback from them and leave the rest to be done at the end of the project. With the help of the feedback received from the viewers, you can enhance your web design so that it helps the website owner to meet the goals.

Coding the website

The coding of the website has to be done through HTML, which is a simple computer language made up of tags. Tags are the simple way to add extra information to the text which is basically seen by the search engines while ranking the website. The days are gone when pages were created to just share the latest and updated information about a specific topic but in a modern website, you would probably want it to look attractive.

I have to to be honest and tell you that I copied this article from a 2010 publication to show that not much havs changed since then when it comes to web design.

Non Lethal Self Defense

Non Lethal self defense is and will always be a hot discussion subjects and everyone has his or her own opinion about this topic.
In this article I express my opinion and try to explain why I think this way.

I think that basically no one wants to kill an other person or even animal, unless her or his life or of a loved one is in danger.
One of the most advised self defense product is still a gun.
The type of gun varies from site to site and can be a handgun or a shotgun for short range.

I have nothing against guns and am a supporter of the freedom to carry or own a gun and have several myself.

There are however many situations that the use of a gun is a little to much in relation to the situation.
I realize that with saying this I probably will get a lot of comments of people who disagree with this, but this is my personal opinion and you don’t have to agree.

I am not going to write about the several self defense classes and all their options because I think that does depend on your physical fitness and that is something I have not.
This made me have a look at the alternative in the form of non lethal self defense weapons.

After reading a ton of related articles and advise that sometimes was great and sometime worthless i cam e to the conclusion that for me there are 2 options that fit my life and lifestyle the best.

I found a great product for in my car and is called a stun gun flashlight with LED lights, that is rechargeable in my car and in the house in with the two available charger and I can even charge it on my computer
I bought the stun gun with a high voltage because, according to my little research, this gives a better and deeper penetrating power on your Attacker.

We will try to shed a little light on commercial cleaning for Hopkinsville Kentucky since this is where the people we recommend come from. although it is actually not right there but in the next county over.

What is so different about commercial cleaning that we will write a whole article on this subject? Well in the first place I have worked as a supervisor in the commercial and industrial cleaning and know how hard of a job it is.

Most work is done early in the morning, late at night or in the weekends when the people who normally occupy these workplaces are at home relaxing and enjoying their evening of or their weekend.

Commercial cleaning can not be compared to domestic or house cleaning. first of all it is a fact that commercial cleaning uses more sophisticated cleaning equipment and most of the time a heavier quality.
For example a regular vacuum cleaner that is used at home will most of the time not last very long in the heavy duty use of the commercial cleaning.
Vacuuming a house or lets say 10 offices day in day out already shows that this requires a more heavy duty vacuum cleaner.

Commercial cleaned hall in an office

The same story goes for brooms, mops and even the rags used to clean.’
The lighter quality used at home will not last to long when used in cleaning a production floor in plant or factory.

the training of a staff is a very important factor in the world of heavy duty commercial cleaning in Clarksville Tennessee.
A well trained staff that knows what cleaning chemicals are used where and why this is so will be more productive and motivated than someone who had no idea what he or she is doing.

Do Review Web Sites Have A Purpose

pupose of a review websiteI am an internet junkie and spend a lot of time on my computer, laptop and even on my phone on the internet.
Before I make a decision on a product I am thinking of buying I love to dig deep into the subject and find all the pros and cons of the product.

What I found is that a lot of time if you use the word review with your product in it to find something in a search engine like Google, Yahoo, Bing or any of the other ones I use to find information you see a lot of the online stores showing up.

I have no problem with that except that lately you read more and more that stores buy positive reviews of their products and this decreases the value of those reviews of course.

This is the reason that most of the time I skip these E-commerce websites and scroll down lower on the page or even look at page 2 or 3 to find a review site that gives me more unbiased information about the product I think I will buy soon.

On of the sites I found that does a good job is called better priced online and I just love to snoop around on there and here is the link https://bettergrills.com/ for if you would like to have a look at it.
