How to Wear a Saree (Sari)

How to wear a Sari?

Sorry…I was typing too loud. 🙂 Greetings fellow on lookers! :-p   A request was made by a good friend of mine and I thought…hey why not? [Lol] Personally, I feel the garments are absolutely beautiful! I really love the variety in color, texture, and style! Cultures are a wonderful thing that I respect and adore so much. So on that note, today I will be sharing something I learned in 12 simple steps. ^_^

Step 1:

Be sure to have a fitted shirt of some sort for underneath. The heels/shoes you wear play a big role in how the saree falls, and how ever much coverage you may want or need. Hold the inner end of the saree with your left hand.

Step 2:

Making sure the saree is at floor level, tuck the top border of the inner end into the petticoat.

Step 3:

Then pass the saree around to the front maintaining the same height.

Step 4:

Keep the top edge leveled and tuck it in a little to keep the saree firm.

Step 5:

Start folding the pleats from the right holding, then tuck the edge of the saree.

Step 6:

Hold the pleats together and adjust the height so that the bottom edge is at floor level.

Step 7:

Tuck the pleats into the petticoat. The pleats should fall straight.

Step 8:

Bring the saree around.

Step 9:

Hold it in your right hand and pass it to your left, arranging the border evenly.

Step 10-11:

Repeat step 9.

Step 12:

Drape on your left shoulder allowing the end piece to fall casually.

 

Marketing Tips for Beginners

Hey viewers!

How are you feeling today? I hope all is well. I have something for you today that I think may be of great use. I’d give you the anticipated leading up to it theatrics….but I think that would be silly considering the title. [Hehe]  Here’s a briefing in this video, but I will elaborate more below:

Marketing Tips for Beginners

<<Passion>>

LOVE what you do. Whether it’s selling apparel, music, books etc….show an interest in what it is you do or carry on to the next best thing for you. Passion should be had in the best parts of your life. That eases the process, especially for beginners.

>>Audience<<

If you were into politics and you wanted to grab the attention of the masses, you’d stand on a soap box if you had to with a fog horn, right? [LOL] Marketing is no different…in fact, those are all concepts of marketing. Give the people what they need or want, and in return your purpose benefits. You wouldn’t go to a sea of diabetic people offering them sugar loaded cupcakes, the same way you wouldn’t advertise allergens to an allergic person. If you’re marketing film, food, jewelry etc, target areas you’d find more susceptible people who’d be interested.

<<Delivery>>

Delivery is important. Make sure you’re projecting your voice so that you’re heard and confident in what it is you’re promoting. Give the people a reason to trust what you’re saying and validate it with your stats or plain ole benefits of what ever it is you’re distributing. For example:

“I’ve got some cheap sneakers, want a pair?”

“Hey, how are you today? I was wondering if I could interest you in some footwear?”

I’m sure you can tell which is most suitable. [wink, wink]

>>Brand<<

It’s imperative you know what you’re marketing. If you’re an affiliate of a marketing team (a safe and REPUTABLE one mind you) research your product(s), because for sure, your possible customer WILL ask! Be prepared.

<<Technique>>

Have a game plan and stick to it until it produces results. Remain consistent in the correct formula, nothing less. Be strategic in your methods. Observe, orient, decide, act…strategy!

>>Be Yourself!<<

It’s fine to look up to those making moves and all that goodness, but don’t lose YOU in the process. If someone personalized the way they sang a song but kept the lyrics the same, you’d have a much better chance at wooing the audience. Verses repetition where any and everyone can find and has found. I know for sure when someone approached me about something I wasn’t interested in, 9 out of 10 was because it sounded as though they were reading straight from a book. Be careful about little things like that.

I hope this has been of use to you. Leave me your feedback in the comment section about other great ideas to assist in marketing effectively. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Content THIEVES! [Writers: A MUST read!]

 

 

Stop Stealing!
Stop Stealing!

Greetings & welcome everyone! 🙂

Oh boy, oh boy! I’m sure this topic hits home with LOTS of people. ESPECIALLY those earning a living from blogging. There is nothing worse than a creeper with no desire to make use of their time or energy, into something they claim they want to do. Thieves in ALL forms, shapes, sizes, and colors disgust me. Whether you’re trying to take someone’s property IE: Car, Home possessions, Articles, BLOGS, books, pencils in class [LOL], Jewelry…what ever it may be, you name it…if it’s being stolen I hate it. I couldn’t pitty a thief either. There is nothing keeping you from starting out the same way we all did. Working hard and being passionate about what you do. So for the content stealing scum who likes to make a quick buck off of the hard work of others (sounds so familiar), you can kick rocks and look forward to my lawyer for copyright infringement. Yes…this will ALL be patent material. To explain that little rant to my faithful readers, there have been folks stealing my entire blogs & videos not even realizing that all of my information is still encoded. Silly rabbits. If you encounter this very issue, or would like to check for these issues, I suggest a few things…

  1. Your wording is unique, put in quotation marks a section from your content and post it into any search engine. Make sure you use the quotations so it’s not pulling up just any site with the words instead of the whole sentence.
  2. Run a WhoIs report on the domain, and check to see if they’re hosted in the US. Generally, the company dealing with the DNS Nameservers is more than likely the company doing the hosting. So get in touch with them & report your theif!
  3. Google HATES spam, bots, and plagiarizers! So when seeking your content & happen to find your culprit, be sure to send google a little notice too.
  4. Keep in mind that as long as there is something linking back to you, the original owner when traffic is gained from these thieves, is returned back to you. As long as your name or again source is embedded. Thanks for the publicity [LOL!]Try incorporating the concept of re-linking in your content to certain aspects of your blog. 🙂
  5. If nothing else works, file a notice of Digital Millenium Copyright Act infringement (DMCA) with numerous search engines and other directories. They’ll usually remove that Web site from their databases. Be sure to send a “Cease and Desist” letter to the owner of the “thief” first before you file this notice.
  6. Sites like Web Archive can help prove it’s your original work, since everything’s dated. 😉

 

Copyright Infringement
Ban Content Thieves

Falling victim to this isn’t a matter of IF anymore, but WHEN…just make sure you have your stuff ready to go and prepared for situations such as these and protect your content! As for the bots, trolls, spammers, and content thieves reading this to stay “current” on new ways to go around it, for every one of you, there will be another us…just as devoted to protecting as you are to stealing. There are so many innovative ways to track and find culprits it’s amazing! Remember, no one wants to work with a thief, so find out who the hosts of these blogs/articles are, and track down the folks running the ads used on their stolen content. Stay safe my fellow readers 🙂

 

Until next time…

Money Management?

Hey you!? 😉

There’s a few possible reasons you may have clicked to read this blog. You’re either in debt and trying to manage your funds and got a little curious, or you’re a subscriber (yes, YouTube terminology *sigh* lol). Either way, both reasons got you here for a good reason and I want nothing more than to share my “TipsforZip” with you! ^_^

First things first, you want to get your finances in order. Times may be tough, but it’s ESSENTIAL to everything you intend on doing from here on out. Let’s face it, with stinky credit and a buck to your name, there’s not much else for you to choose from economically IE: cars, homes, food

Spend In Moderation

Spend in moderation.

Be sure to keep track of your spending habits. Try making separate envelopes each labeled with where it’s going. Example: [Rent] {Car} [School] {Daycare} [Living expenses] so on and so fourth. Add money to each envelope every week or two weeks depending on when you get paid, so by the end of the month, each slot will be filled with what you need and what ever is left over can be put towards saving etc. The better your financial savings, the better quality essentials to life, you can have. Some may understand the foods in which they consume on a daily and where it’s really coming from. You’ll be able to research and then after make a more sound judgement on what is safest and healthier for you and your family. Invest in only the things in life that assist you in greatness. Organic is not as expensive as some may think, especially if you have the option to plant or buy baby fruit and veggie plants to grow (if you have the time I might add) ;-).

Paying off Debt

Now this is one of the more common stresses in gathering funds [lol]. Even if you have just a penny after paying off all of your bills…SAVE IT! Every little bit counts for something. If you have overdraft fees of $60 and a student loan or credit card bill of $300, try and reduce the bill with the highest amount. If ever in a situation like that where each debt is critical and demands are higher for payout, (especially if being charged fees left and right) then address the higher priced one first and try paying it off in chunks. If it’s something more mediocre like an overdue library book verses a utility bill, clearly…take care of your utility bill first. You need water, electricity,  and things of that nature to survive…that will be your top priority. Paying in moderation also helps your credit score when they see you’re consistent and pay you debt in a timely manner.

Organization

Ah yes, it can get really tedious if you’ve let things pile up. Whether it be your home, your office, your desk or locker at school…please ensure that your work and or living space is tidy! Stress comes with uncleanliness too. You can’t focus, you can’t work properly and everything becomes a distraction. Worrying about how to get everything done at once and still have time for yourself. Just like money, you have to organize the way you live. It’s also an essential to getting things done productively and efficiently. A few extras dishes in the sink? Clean it up. Papers and pencils or kid toys all over your desk at home? Clean it up. Room all out of place and smelling not too fresh? [Lol] Yes…clean it UP! 😉 I assure you, you’ll not only feel better but you’ll do better and look better because your up keep is inside and out. Take control of your life and live it well. That does not mean run a muck and do things you may regret 10-20 years down the line [haha]. It just means to keep it safe, clean, and stress free. For the parents reading, this is also a wonderful tip and bundle of tools you can teach your kid(s). Get it instilled in them while they’re still young and impressionable, so as adults these things will already be a “must do” in their day to day. Much harder to get through to the stubborn ones as they age [haha]. 🙂

I hope this has been helpful to and for you. Please if you wish to share any of my blogs, keep all present information including my name, in the post when and or if you decide to share it. Leave your thoughts below I look forward to reading them! ^_^

Until next time….
