It was a week or so back, I have come across some stories reporting Internet scams. I then related them with those, which I read about almost everyday in the newspaper. The moment I thought about the web directories that provide links and information about a list of relevant websites and resources, but unfortunately it was quite a lengthy process. I think an Attorney Directory will be a best niche directory for law and related resources, whether available online or offline.
By attorney directory I do not expect the online fraud handling, but a list of all law related concerns. Availability of such facilities for a particular country or a region can help boosting online businesses a lot along with those working in physical environment. For instance, let’s say there’s such a directory that lists all the lawyers and law firms within Pakistan, or any other country, it’ll be quite easier for me to access the best lawyer if I’ve any dispute within or out of my territory. The other business end of this facility will help good lawyers get maximum exposure at an affordable advertising cost.
Being born in a lawyers’ family I do intend to make a list of best lawyers round me, and of course will publish them somewhere on Internet as well. Let’s see if it’ll be some sort of help for my people!

I’m in blogging for more than a year, and have come across many ins and outs of blogging and other Internet stuff during all this time. Being blogger, content management has always been an issue that I’ve explored more. Though WordPress has been my choice for blogs all the time, but while moving to other sites, where I don’t want a bloggy look, I’d a tough time finding a good CMS.
There’s nothing wrong with the available CMSs in fact but my requirements. Well, my requirements are very limited, but I wonder and realize a real tough time for a corporate level management of content, they must need some specialized CMSs. Googling for long hours may bring hundreds of thousands of results, claiming this and that, but they all are of course not reliable, but some like EPAZZ are worth trying, as they provide a 30 days free trial in a range of products from ERPs, reports, to media and entertainment related softwares.
It’s just an opportunity to avail a free trial and find the best and top quality content management softwares from reliable manufacturer, saving time and energy both!

Most of my posts discuss the comparison of the economic and non-economic strategies for the development in developed and developing countries. In the same context, I’ve some not new, but an important issue to have my say. Basis for the development though include a list of factors, but most important one is health of masses. No country can proceed with mega economic projects if its people are physically or mentally unfit. And a key element of health facilities in a country includes a strong check on the chemical engineering expert witnesses responsible for the production and or distribution of medicines within the country.
The issue, in its totality is not that big, but mismanaging or over looking it may result as worst consequences for developing countries like Pakistan, where by a large number of patients dies in hospitals due to the provision of either expired or low quality medicines. This is the case not only in Pakistan, but round the world in almost all developing countries.
Now a matter of great concern, but very general in nature: how a developing country can proceed with some top class economic projects if its people are not healthy enough to participate in day-to-day activities. The discussion doesn’t end here but just takes a little break; to think who’s responsible for doing all this!

While researching on the growth of businesses round the world the thing that I found common in all success stories was effective marketing and advertising. Whether it’s online marketing using Internet or the offline concern using billboards, magazines or newspapers etc, the thing that counts is conveying the message that people think is especially for them. And of course, this all depends on the choice of advertising media that suits the product or service best.
Presently, the world advertising industry has an investment of about three trillion dollars in it, which doesn’t only make it a leading industry but also reveals the fact that production/manufacturing, is nothing if advertising doesn’t exist. But advertising also doesn’t work if it’s not planned or the product or service is being advertised where it’s not needed.
Keeping this fact in mind, the best solution is to keep a track of advertising concerns, like Myadbase to have detailed information about the right advertising media with in and outside the particular area, i.e. both online and offline. Some people may say that while having online advertising as it has wide course of action, there’s no need of offline media, but spreading the message far and wide is not the only concern, instead many other factors matter, i.e. the intensity of message that penetrates in the mind of customers.
So do not only advertise, but manage your advertising to get far better results.

I’ve written more than enough about outing and traveling in past couple of weeks. Not sure, but seems I need some outing as well. I’ve also mentioned earlier in a post that according to experts, it’s very crucial to be out of your city at least for two days in a year. That takes the clouds of tension away from your head and help re energize you. I completely agree to this research, but something that I think is very important while going out is planning, i.e. where to go, what to do there etc. whether you’re going somewhere within the country or across the boarder, have a well planned outing, for instance if you’re going to UK, don’t forget to have London Pass.
This is a card that gives you free entrance on many important places in London including, Tower Bridge Exhibition, Shakespeare’s Globe, Windsor Castle and London Aquarium etc all in one time fee. I recommend this sort of cards and services, because they save your time and money on one hand and let you enjoy your trip fully on other hand.
I myself have been planning to have holidays somewhere out of town for years but couldn’t have one till yet. One of the reasons was that I really didn’t know where to go, but now I’ve come up with the opinion that, it takes just a short time to explore some areas, look at if some services like one I mentioned above are available, avail them and have a happy tour.

While studying Finance in academics I’d no interest in it, but don’t know why I’m much in it now. I’ll, however, not talk purely about Finance here, instead the combination of Finance and the Internet Technology. In fact the Internet has made most of the things much easier, from communication to financial services. I’d discussed about the online presence of Structured Settlements and credit cards earlier and today I’ve got a new thing to share. It’s cash advance loans. These are also very well known as fast cash, payday loans and quick cash etc.
These types of loans are actually very easy to acquire, as they do not need any complex procedure, i.e. the applicant should be employed with minimum monthly income along with a bank account that accepts direct deposits. The reason for such loans being so much popular is that they can be applied for via Internet and have fastest turnaround.
Though a large number of websites is there offering payday loans, but choice of a reliable one is also an issue. Before applying for such loans one should make sure that the site is an authentic one. You don’t need to worry much about just do a little googling and see what people are saying about that particular payday loan lender. For instance cashadvance1500.com, I’ve come across while searching for peoples’ opinion about sites providing cash advance loans. So if you need emergency cash, I think the best option should be to have cash advance loan instead selling your property at less prices.

It was about one year back when I decided to move this blog of mine to a .com domain, unfortunately being inexperienced at that time I couldn’t complete that project but that taught me many lessons including the importance of Online Backup. In fact the major failure of that project was that I relied on much on hosting company and didn’t have any backup. Hosting company’s site got hacked and I lost all my efforts. I’ve been a bit lucky that I’d all the data in HD, but I’d have left with a “Just Another WordPress Blog” if HD had corrupted.
Well, by that time onward I started being a little careful about my other sites.
Online backup is what you need if you’re in blogging or any other Internet business. The reasons to have online backup are very simple, i.e. you don’t need to hire for this, and your data is stored offsite on a secured data center, which is answerable to you. Further it reduces the probability of theft or misuse of your data.
Though backup is necessary for every site, but specifically talking about blogging I think it’s more than crucial as your blog contains your best write ups, memories and your worthy views, that should always be on a safe place and should be accessible to others, and for such, nothing is worth more than online backup. So being Internet people generally and bloggers specifically keep your views, memories and above all your precious words safe and sound on a reliable remote server and have happy blogging.
