Twitter Incrementa su Arsenal para Atacar a los Spammers

October 13, 2009 Leave a comment

Hasta ahora, la única forma en que los usuarios de Twitter podían cooperar en la batalla contra el spam, era enviando sus quejas a la cuenta @spam o bloqueando a aquellos usarios indeseados. Ahora, Twitter nos pide nuevamente su ayuda para mejorar el sitio, esta vez mediante la opción de reportar a un usario por spam.

Reporta aquellas cuentas que te parezcan dudosas o spam

Reporta aquellas cuentas que te parezcan dudosas o spam

Este botón se encuentra bajo la ocpción de bloqueo de un usuario. El uso de este btón hará que la persona reportada sea también bloqueada para quien reporta. No obstante, ninguna otra acción automatizada ocurrirá si utilizas este botón. Lee la información desde el blog de Twitter aquí.

Desde que estás en Twitter, te parece que han mejorado las medidas para atacar el desagradable spam?

I’ve been hacked!/ Me hackearon! www.caromillan.com will be back soon…

September 10, 2009 Leave a comment

So last weekend I had a very nasty surprise. Someone had hacked my blog. Later I realised it was part of a massive attack (not the band) to WordPress. Several bloggers were attacked, mainly those who hadn’t updated to the latest version. Well, I was one of them.

I had put a lot of work into it, so of course it was really frustrating when I found out someone had entered my blog and deleted all the data. I wonder, seriously, what’s in it for them. It’s not as if my blog were really important or anything. It was out of pure evil.

Anyway, this is my wordpress.com blog which I will be updating while my other blog is under construction. Taking out the positive from the negative: it’s a good excuse to revamp my blog! Stay tuned!

Caro.

El fin de semana pasado me encontré con la grata sorpresa de que mi blog habia sido hackeado. Al principio pensé que alguien lo había hecho a propósito. Luego me enteré de que había sido parte de un ataque masivo a WordPress, en especial a aquellos usuarios que aun no hubiesen actualizado su blog a la versión más reciente. Obviamente, yo era uno de ellos.

Había puesto mucho trabajo y dedicación en mi blog por lo que fue muy frustrante el descubrir que alguien había entrado y borrado toda la base de datos. Me pregunto que ganan con esto. No es como si mi blog fuera especial ni nada por el estilo. Fue un acto de pura maldad.

Bueno, por ahora continuaré actualizando este blog, que es mi version wordpress.com mientras mi otro blog esta bajo cirugia. Viendo el lado positivo de las cosas, esto servirá para remodelar mi blog! No se vayan muy lejos!

Twitter… What’s the problem with reciprocal following?

April 2, 2009 1 comment

A couple of weeks ago there was a tornado that hit one of the online communities I visit for my Marketing Business. Mike Dillard (Creator of the famous brand Magnetic Sponsoring ) sent a message to his entire list, stating that he was no longer going to follow every follower on Twitter. He took the radical decision of unfollowing 10,000 people. This caused the community to break into two fronts: those who agreed and those who disagreed.
Mike’s main argument was: why following people automatically if they are only following you because they want more followers, and they know you’ll follow them in return out of “courtesy”?
Perry Belcher, a social media Marketer, has always preached that you should follow back every follower you get out of “politeness”. And Mike agreed for a while. But in Mike’s eyes, following people for the sake of it doesn’t denote any authenticity. He wants his followers to follow him for the value he adds to them, and not just because he will follow them back.

Now, I find myself in a dilemma here. I disagree with Mike, but I also disagree with Perry. The way I see it: there’s nothing wrong in following your followers back, but don’t do it just to be polite! Show some interest and give those people a chance to add value to your Twitter experience as well. Now, I don’t mind if Mike Dillard doesn’t follow me, I’m not going to unfollow him just because of that. I like his posts and I follow his teachings. But ignoring thousands of people who follow you because they care about what you have to say doesn’t seem right to me.
I follow back most of my followers if I see any potential in what they can offer, which is why it’s important to get your Twitter Bio and photo up there as soon as you create your profile, so people know who you are from the get go.

I also consider myself a relationship builder. I try to personally DM all followers I get to exchange some personal information about each other. I know many of them followed me just because we may have common interests or goals, or just because they hoped I’d follow them back to help them expand their audience. But it’s cool to go beyond that. It’s hard to keep up with all of them, that’s for sure.

I think it’s absolutely valuable to give people a chance too, instead of ignoring them when they follow you. Everytime you get a new follower, check out their profile and their bio and follow back if you think you could connect and build ties. If not, don’t just follow out of politeness. Give it some meaning and add some value.

Anyway, this is just my point of view and I hope you found it useful!

cheers,

Carolina

Why caring about a home based business? What’s the purpose and advantage?

November 17, 2008 Leave a comment

Hello dear reader,

I have been pondering about this for a while. Why having a home based business? And the answer is not as obvious as it seems. I’ll tell you why.

When I started my business, I wasn’t really looking for a business like this. I wasn’t even looking for extra money. To be honest, I wasn’t looking for anything, or so I thought. I was fine with my job and the people I work with. I was ok with the salary, although it could and it should be higher. I was pretty much ok with everything. It wasn’t until someone told me “hey, want to be your own boss?” that it cracked in my head. I thought “why not?”. And then I realised how those magic words had awaken something inside of me: My long lost dreams.

I’m sure there’s a time in our lives when our dreams are at their peak. And for a few moments we believe that everything is possible. But after a while, without fighting much, we simply give them up and settle for less what we have. We become another brick in the wall of society. Most of us would rather stay at this comfortable position, where we have a steady job, a steady income, and enough money to live well. We would like to have more time and more money, and be able to do more things, but we don’t believe it’s possible. “It’s the life I got to live” some people think. We hope for a promotion at our job, so we work hard and do our best. We might get an extra bonus at the end of the year, so we work toward that goal. But we cannot seem to wish upon anything higher than that. Why is that? Is it laziness? Is it comformism? Have we lost any hope in achieving those dreams that we once had? Are we afraid of disappointment?

Now, going back to what I said before, I wasn’t looking for anything related to money or a business. But funnily enough, I was looking for a way out of my daily routine. See, I graduated a year ago, and started working only 3 months after. During those three months I was free, I thought a lot about my future, but tried to avoid it at the same time. I knew it would be the last time that I would ever be free for three months, because once I’d enter the labor World, I would never get 3 months holidays ever again. And believe me, that thought scared me. As I mentioned in one of my previous entries of this blog, life seems to be one prison after another.

Today I’m writing to motivate myself and others to break free from this prison. Some of you may say “yeah right, how am i supposed to do that? I need a job and I need the money to survive”. Well, yes, you might need the money, but you don’t necessarily need the job. What if I told you that there are ways (several ways, actually) for you to retire young and rich? What if I told you that life doesn’t have to be about your job anymore? What if I told that there is a way for you to work for a few years, instead of forty?

Why is it that so many people think that the life of the rich and famous is for others and not for us? Human beings love to bring each other down:

  • I’m not talented enough
  • I’m not good enough at anything
  • I don’t do anything special
  • I’m not smart enough
  • I don’t live in the right place to succeed
  • That’s not for people like me
  • I’ll never be like that

And the list could go on. Well, what makes you think that you can’t change anything about you? You are the only person stopping you from becoming what you truly want to be! It may be tough, but we can be our own worst enemies. Sure, many factors around us may influence our success, but at least 90% of it lies within ourselves. If we face life with the right attitude, then we can overcome most of our fears and reach whatever goals we set ourselves.

So, to answer the questions I put on the subject of this post.

Why having a home based business? Clearly, the answer is not “because it’s nice” or “because I don’t want to see my boss anymore”. The best answer I can give you is because I want to be FREE”  Free from what? Free from the constant hassle that being an employee brings. Free from the barriers of time and money. Free to do whatever I want, whenever I want, whith whomever I want! Wouldn’t you like that? Wouldn’t you like to live your dreams? Dream, then take ACTION.

The equation is

Dream + Believe + Take Action = Reality

YOU can do this too. It’s not for the famous and talented people only. This is for all of us!! And you are still on time to switch from being an Employee for the rest of your life and work for money, to being a successful Entrepreneur, who has money working for them.

What’s the Purpose and Advatange? The purpose is whatever your Dream is, and how strong and determined you are about it! Focus on your dreams, picture the life you’ve always wanted to live and GO FOR IT! But remember, it will NOT come easy and I would like to emphasize on that. Don’t let ANYONE tell you that you will get rich Overnight, or that you will have other people doing this for you. You will have to prepare yourself, you will have to learn a LOT, you will have to study and train yourself. But it will pay off in the end. I am going to pass on all my knowledge to you.

Network Marketing is the easiest, most convenient way to pursue your Own business.

Are you READY?

Do You Have What It Takes??


 

To YOUR Success.
