To start this story off I will say I’m glad I read all of my youtube comments and PM’s otherwise I would have never found this amazing website! Being the skeptic that I am I thought that this website was some scam site sent to me from some random persone on youtube (I get many of those type of mesages). I was pleased to find that I was completely wrong this time however, that the website was very much a legitimate business to advertise your social networks for free! I know right, too good to be true? In one day of diligently working to advertise my youtube videos and channel I have gained almost 80 subscribers (within the last 24 hours alone!). It is very simple to use for anyone and the more work you put towards it the more you get from it. Now enough of my ramblings of how great this site is allow me to actually explain what it does.
Growingsocials.com allow you to advertise all of your social networking sites in various ways, from getting likes on your facebook fan page, to advertising your youtube on google plus. Grow Socials works by adopting a system that thrives on activity, the more active you are the more exposure you will get. Grow Socials runs on a currency called Credits, and credits determine whether or not you can advertise yourself. You earn credits by viewing other people’s sites, tweeting what other ask, following them on twitter, viewing their youtube videos, subscribing to their youtube channels, liking their fanpage on facebook, or giving them a +1 on google+. How this system works is you are essentially buying and selling credits amongst each other whereby granting each other more exposure to all of your content and heightened potential to expose yourself to other’s on your social networking (outside of the growing social community).
Growing Social also rewards those that are diligent and honest! On my first day of using the website i was contacted by the admins asking if I wished to have access to some bonuses as a reward. However they also punish those trying to really exploit the system, as this website loses a lot of its power if you try to ‘cheat’. The day I joined one such individual was found and punished for cheating, was banned and lost a LARGE amount of power that was giving him exposure, ouch.
Now say you do not have the time, or do not want to put the time into this. Well Growing Social does have a very affordable way for you to purchase credits, do note that this is OPTIONAL and the system is set that as long as you are staying active you should have a very healthy amount of credits to do what you need to do. As I said earlier with growing social’s help in a single day i went from 12 subscribers on my youtube channel to almost 85, and not all of them were from the website, many new people were able to find my videos thanks to the exposure granted to me by this site. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to get any exposure on their websites, youtube channels, or other social networking devices!
My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court
I’ve been sending out some impertinent tweets about Progressive Insurance lately, but I haven’t explained how they pissed me off. So I will do that here as succinctly as possible. There’s a general understanding that says, “insurance companies— oh they’re awful,” but since Progressive turned their shit hose on my late sister and my parents, I’ve learned some things that really surprised me.
I’ll try to cleave to the facts. On June 19, 2010, my sister was driving in Baltimore when her car was struck by another car and she was killed. The other driver had run a red light and hit my sister as she crossed the intersection on the green light.
So far my day has been going great! Unfortunately had trouble sleeping, but when I woke up I finally have a date scheduled for my operation! Finally going to be rid of this cyst that has been bothering me for years, and almost killed me once or twice :/.
Also what is great about today is I’m finally starting to get back into the swing of things recording my lets plays got minecraft up and Half-Life 2 if being uploaded as I write this :)
In relevance to my installation video located here, more info on the mods and program I used to install said mods!
This little program is an open sourced application that I recently was made aware of that REALLY simplifies installing mods into Minecraft for those that were having issues understanding how to do it! It almost literally makes installing mods a drag and drop, Some JAR mods have to be specifically ordered but I go into more detail about that in my video!
The only difficult part of installing a bunch of mods is remapping the conflicting block ID’s. This can be a real pain and take someone new to it a long time to try and figure out and do; This unfortunatly is not fixed with MutliMC but I have a config file for the mods I am using, located in the link of my video and here
Mods: (INCOMING LARGE LIST) These are all mods I find to be interesting and entertaining. I have added a few more mods that I have never used before to try them out (for example extended crafting table)
Risugami’s Modloader and Audio mod (both)
Minecraft Forge (Recommended Build)
mDiyo’s 4096 Block ID fix
Chickenbones’ CodeChickenCore and Not Enough Items (NEI)
Mods for Mods folder:
Additional Buildcraft Objects (nightly builds for BC 3.1.5)
Buildcraft (BC) 3.1.5
Additional Pipes v.3.0.10 (TP pipes for BC 3.1.5)
Equivalent Exchange 2 (184.108.40.206)
Forestry in Minecraft (220.127.116.11)
Industrialcraft 2 (1.95b)
NEI Red Power 2 and Railcraft Plug-ins
Red Power 2 PRE5b1
Wireless Redstone, ChickenBones Edition (all 3 files)
So I think I’m going to end up caving and going back to WoW once again… MEH its not such a big deal I suppose!
Finally got back to work on recording some stuff though, Minecraft stuff is being edited as I am typing this, really need to get to work on HL2 and Anno! Being lazy early on in the day really comes to bite me in the ass sometimes :(
Hope you all are having a good day.
