August Thirtieth ~ God's Daily Minute

“I love them that love me.” –Prov. 8:17 ~

“Father, we thank Thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.”

We are glad for the privilege of calling upon Thee. We love Thee because of what Thou art and because of what Thou hast done. Thou art the Creator and Preserver of our lives. In Thee we live, and move, and have our being. We thank Thee for Thy Son, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins, and the hope of eternal life. We thank Thee for our country, and for our homes and schools and churches. Help us to love the right and despise the wrong. Prepare us for the duties of the day. We know not what is before us, but it is written, “Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Give us grace whereby we may overcome evil with good.
Bless all our friends and neighbors. Bless Thy followers everywhere. Let Thy Kingdom come, and Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Internet Marketing



Internet Marketing Basics:  What worked years ago still works today!

By: Jack Humphrey

Internet marketing can seem mystifying not only for beginners, but for moderately skilled internet marketers.  With all the courses, forums, blogs, reports, seminars and teleconferences available to help people learn how to get traffic to their sites, it is one of the most overwhelmingly dense subjects on the internet.

Unfortunately, and this is perfectly true, most of the advice or "expert" tips are outdated or completely false.  Since anyone can publish on the internet, you have a mixed bag of good information followed with much more bad information.

The mysticism of internet marketing is created largely by this glut of some good and mostly bad information.  It makes the whole topic SEEM like rocket science when, in fact, much of what was true about internet marketing years ago is true today.

Most people think that since search engine marketing changes every five minutes, that ALL internet marketing tactics must have changed as much in the same amount of time.  Not true.

The basics, like trading links, article syndication, testimonials, forum signatures, joint ventures, affiliate programs - most work as well today as they did years ago.  That is, if you know how to value the work above for what it will truly do for your website traffic.

Funny thing is, no one places much value on the above tactics anymore because there is always some "new" tactic around the corner that claims the death of everything that came before it.  And most people blindly follow that advice as if it were true.

Most of the time, this is to the detriment of their internet marketing efforts.  The basics are what work all the time and what have always worked on the internet.

You can always experiment with new things, as long as you have not forgotten to do the basics.  The basics proven to drive traffic, page rank, link popularity, and branding to your business.


Conservative, relevant reciprocal linking
Article syndication
Participation in your field and among your market (forums)
Blogging
Offline advertising
Non-reciprocal linking tactics
Press releases
...and many other proven methods.


Everything else is just a big experiment until proven to work over time.  "Over time" being the operative words.  Lots of flash in the pan crack pot schemes work for awhile.  But most never stand the test of time.

Links from a widely syndicated article will never fade away, yet I see people chasing down fly-by-night linking pyramid schemes as if they truly believe something like that is a smart thing to base their internet business on!

Tens of thousands have walked away from their dreams, gone back to their depressing, predictable, slave-la!
 bor jobs never knowing how close they were to actually succeeding.

Good people have left this business proclaiming it an utter lie that any average person can make it with an internet business and an internet marketing plan.

I guess there is truth in that statement.  Average people do in fact quit this business before they ever get started because average people fall for tricks and schemes that above average people avoid on their way to success.

If you have read this far, you are probably in the above average category.  Why?  Because average people would have take one look at the list of things I mentioned that are the bread and butter of internet marketing and saw nothing but hard work.  And they'd be right!

Above average people don't shy away from work though.  I don't know a single soul (and my rolodex has some of the biggest names in internet marketing in it) who got where they are today without a lot of hard work.

You can succeed in internet marketing if you are not afraid to work, and not constantly tempted by those who say you can succeed without it!

Focus on the basics of internet marketing and stay with them as you try new strategies.  We all experiment.  But successful internet marketers never leave their bread and butter tactics behind unless they cease to be effective.

Brioche Bread -- Recipe




Bookmark and Share

Brioche Bread -- Recipe

Here is a simplified version of a classic French bread recipe. Brioche is my first choice when making bread pudding and French toast, and it is wonderful toasted with jam. Oh yeah, it's great plain, too.

Brioche

4 cups (1 L) all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
1 1/2 tsp (7 ml) instant yeast
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
8 Tbs (120 ml) cold butter, cut into small pieces
 3 eggs
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup (125 ml) plus 2 Tbs (30 ml) milk
1/3-1/2 cup (80-125 ml) water

Combine the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in an electric food processor and process with the steel blade for 5 seconds. Add the butter and 3 eggs and process for 10 seconds. Add 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk and 1/3 cup (80 ml) water while the machine is running and process for 30 seconds. The dough should be very sticky-if it is not, add more water. Grease a large bowl and scoop the dough into it. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise 2 to 3 hours, until doubled in volume. Punch the dough down and, using just enough flour to enable you to handle the dough, shape it into 2 loaves. Place each loaf in a buttered loaf pan (8x4 inches (20x10 cm) or 9x5 inches (23x12 cm)). Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Mix the egg yolk with the remaining milk and brush on the tops of the loaves. Bake in a preheated 400F (200C) oven for about 30 minutes, until golden brown. When done, the loaf should fall out of the pan easily and the bottom should sound hollow when thumped. Remove from the loaf pans and cool on wire racks. Makes 2 loaves.

Social Media And Your Company
















Social Media And Your Company

Bookmark and Share

By James Byrd, MBA

Now in most cases, whenever one might be at the stage of deciding which platform to use, and how a particular social media the platform will be used to gauge how effective that particular platform will be, the question is, will the platform hold up against the goals of the organization. 

One must first look at the intended goals of the organization, or better yet, where the firm is going with its choice of social media platforms. There are three main questions to ponder whenever a firm is in the platform decision mode and that is in terms of which direction it is going with its social media goals. These questions can come in the form of how will the platform increase revenues for the company. 
Next, there is the question of how will the platform lower overall marketing cost while boosting profits, and lastly, the question of how will the platform further enhance the bridge between customer and company? These would be the three questions one might want to use when building on what would be the most viable direction to take when deciding on a particular social media platform, (Sterne, 2010).

Also, there are the ideas of social optimizations, and that of content distribution, these two processes play a significant role, in part, in the processes of which platform will prove to be the most effective for an organization, given the situation. Within the confines of these two concepts, one will find the social media object. Each platform will reflect its distinct form of social media objects and quality of content distribution, that is, depending on the objects of a particular social media platform. These objects are personified by the content that is presented within that particular social media network, such as (the object) network of pictures in Flickr, objects such as videos on YouTube, an instant Tweet that is put forth on Twitter, in this case, the object would be the text message. Once again, given the goal of the organization, in order to be effective with platform choice, the goals of the organization must match the objectives of that chosen social media platform, (Solis, 2011).

August Twenty-Fifth ~ God's Daily Minute

“God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause His face to shine upon us; That Thy way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for Thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.” – Ps. 67:1-4 ~

Our God and Father, we render Thee our thanks and praise for all the good of this day. New were Thy mercies in the morning, and sweet is Thy love in the evening hour. We bless Thee that Thou hast given us this day our daily bread; that Thou hast not forgotten us even in those self-centered moments when we forgot Thee.

And now we pray Thee to watch over and preserve us, body and soul, during the hours of the day and night. May our rest and sleep be sweet to us. May we be brought to this new day refreshed and encouraged for all its duties and privileges, its sorrows and joys.

When we come at last to life’s evening hour, and the night of death begins to fall about us, may we by faith look beyond its darkness to the breaking of the eternal day. We ask all in the name and through the merits of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

H-9



I.The oracle

 
A. Hexagram nine has more to do with the Superior man refining the outward aspect of his nature. Another variation is the idea of leaving the way of Tao and returning to it with loyal credence, in short, stay with what you know deep down in your being as right action: returning is good but try at best to be, and here comes my favorite word, "Consistent." "Be Consistent."

   1. You may stray from The Way, if you stop along the way, you should always find your way back, and this is all due to loyalty and understanding of The Way.
   2. Know that Success comes with being a strategic decision-maker, know which way to go? We see clouds coming from the west, will there be rain? Don't be capricious, trust your perception.

B. The Image


  1. Wind above, Heaven below
      a) The image of The Taming Power of the Small
      b) Thus with this, we see an impending storm, do not fore stay your position of staying on the path of Tao.

II. My interpretation 

A. The main understanding with Hexagram 9 is, one must stay on the way, refining one’s integrity and basic beliefs. Stay with your first thought about various conflicts, the same can be said about clouds gathering in the western sky and moving towards your direction. First though, the expectation of rain, with this image you should withdraw and seek shelter soon. But please return to The Way.

   1. The full moon draws near, attracts danger for a woman, misfortune for a gentleman, but don’t you get carried away by these times. Remember, there is value in small accumulations before the storm, but try not to enrich yourself at your neighbor’s expense.
