А вы хотите зарабатывать с блога?
Всем привет!



Недавно заметил в блоге Игоря Бигдана рекламный баннер, где он предлагает рекламу в своем блоге. И тоже задумался над тем, как бы получить хотя бы небольшую копеечку со своего увлечения.



Наткнулся на форуме блоггеров http://www.bloggers.su/forum/ на раздел о монетизации блогов http://www.bloggers.su/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29, там обсуждаются многие вопросы, смысл которых мне непонятен. Тем не менее, некоторые из участников озвучивали цифры, и у некоторых якобы доход с блога был такой, что с основной работы можно было уйти... я бы тоже так хотел...



Особенно заинтересовала тема: Как начать зарабатывать на блоге? В ней новичкам, в т.ч. и мне, объясняют как найти рекламодателей для блога, какими способами вообще можно заработать... короче интересно блин и перспективно, как мне кажется.



А вы что думаете об этом?

landlord/tenant issues
Hey folks -

Have you have trouble in with your landlord?

Are you a landlord? Have you had trouble with your tenants?

I'm trying to write a piece (for publication) on landlord/tenant issues in the city, and want to find evidence and real stories of problems people have faced.

Email me if you want to share your story (katied924 at yahoo dot com).

Thanks!

Prohibiting pistols would make San Francisco a magnet for violent crime. If this law passes, criminals will laugh, but won't turn in their guns. Most criminals get their guns illegally, so they are already committing a crime by owning them.

This law will leave law abiding men and women with no defense against robbers, rapists, stalkers or home invaders. Violent criminals will know this and flock here seeking easy victims.

The sponsors of this flop have not done their homework. A long-standing California preemption statute prohibits cities from passing a patchwork of conflicting gun laws. If Prop H passes, we will have to pay for a costly lawsuit that San Francisco will lose.

San Franciscans should reject this unfair, unconstitutional and unworkable scheme.

Banning guns is not a progressive cause. Organizations including the San Francisco Pink Pistols oppose this ordinance because it denies gays the means to defend themselves against hate crimes.

DryaUnda's Introduction.
(Cross posted to bayarea, sanfrancisco, sfbayarea, and sfpolitics)

    Hello, I'm DryaUnda. I'm resident of San Francisco, residing within a hidden Illuminati village. Main among my interests are science, role-playing games, strategy games, and taboo subject matter. I'm a student at CCSF, and am planning to transfer to SFSU next year. On account of my low interpersonal intelligence, I have chosen psychology as my major, though I'm thinking of switching to bioethics. My hobbies include searching for Internet novelties, watching documentaries, and occasionally contributing to Orion's Arm. I look forward to contributing and reading from you. :)

San Francisco May Regulate Blogging

Just when you thought the Federal Election Commission had it out for the blogosphere, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors took it up a notch and announced yesterday that it will soon vote on a city ordinance that would require local bloggers to register with the city Ethics Commission and report all blog-related costs that exceed $1,000 in the aggregate.

Blogs that mention candidates for local office that receive more than 500 hits will be forced to pay a registration fee and will be subject to website traffic audits, according to Chad Jacobs, a San Francisco City Attorney.

The entire Board is set to vote on the measure on April 5th, 2005. I wonder if they'll be forced to register their own blogs!

The legislation was written by Supervisor Sophie Maxwell.

So, I’ll do what I always do and issue a challenge!

Let’s all send quick e-mails – even just a sentence or two – to Supervisor Maxwell.

Encourage her to treat bloggers and cyber-citizens as she would treat traditional journalists and voters. When it comes to protecting our privacy and First Amendment rights, it shouldn’t matter what medium we use. Post your e-mails below so we can keep track!

Gotta love our mayor - Gavin Insane
He wants to use the firefighters as police in the hoods.

This is for real.

SAN FRANCISCO
Newsom wants to use fire trucks to help battle crime
He would plant firefighters in their rigs on street corners

Action request

Stop the SF Gun Ban

 

Did you know?

Some of the SF Supervisors have decided the way to reduce crime is to take away the citizens’ right to defend themselves with legally owned guns. If the gun ban is passed by the voters of San Francisco on November 8: 

1.     All San Francisco residents who are not law enforcement officers or security guards would be required to surrender their handguns to the police within 90 days. There is no grandfather clause in the gun ban that will allow private citizens to keep their handguns, and the penalty for violation is unknown.

2.     No sales or transfers of firearms or ammunition will be allowed in San Francisco.

 

If the citizens are disarmed and unable to defend their homes or businesses, San Francisco would become a magnet for criminals through out northern California. This is fine, if you have no family to protect.

 

Action

Your rights can only be preserved by you and here’s what you can do.

1.     Vote on November 8, against the gun ban. Begin talking to your relatives, friends, and anyone who will listen to also vote against the ban.

2.     Write or call the mayor and supervisors in city hall and ask them to stop wasting your money and start coming up with real solutions to violence.

3.     Apply for a CCW permit. Although the poorly written law doesn’t explicitly exempt CCW holders from the gun ban, there is a possibility state law would allow CCW holders to continue to possess handguns.

4.     Stay informed at www.sfdefense.org and www.sfgunban.com


 

 


If you live outside San Francisco, keep in mind: similar prohibitions can spread to your city or county. As described on www.sfgunban.com, one of the principals of the group campaigning for this ban, Committee To Ban Handgun Violence, is Alix Rosenthal, a deputy city attorney for Oakland. It would not be hard to imagine that Oakland or Alameda County would be this group’s next target if the San Francisco gun ban is passed.  Stay informed and spread the word.

Wanting it both ways.
http://www.beyondchron.org/default.asp?sourceid=&smenu=110&twindow=&mad=&sdetail=1438&wpage=1&skeyword=&sidate=&ccat=&ccatm=&restate=&restatus=&reoption=&retype=&repmin=&repmax=&rebed=&rebath=&subname=

Raising MUNI fares somehow falls disproportionately on the "working class", but taxing plastic shopping doesn't?

Sup Mirkarimi is also proposing to "study" the impact of SUVs in SF, and I am sure he has a few suggestions for the conclusion of such a study. Say, hypothetically, that SUVs were taxed or a "user-fee" was placed on them. Then would the the extra burden on MUNI created by displaced motorists warrant a legitimate fare increase?
