Okay, now this post is for the bloggers out there. Or for those who are thinking about starting a blog, I guess. I am reviewing an plugin for WordPress that adds your affiliate links automatically. It’s called WP Auto Affiliate Links. If you own a blog, you know that it’s nice to be able to make a little money off of it to pay for the hosting at least. It’s also nice if you can make money off of your blog to pay yourself for the time you put into it.

If you are like me, you might not get as many affiliate links into your products as you could because you have to put them in manually. Sometimes by the time you finish writing a post, you don’t feel like searching for your affiliate links. Well, I don’t anyway.

A solution for that is WP Auto Affiliate Links. It’s easy to set up and once you do, it automatically puts in your affiliate links. I haven’t played around with all of the features yet, but there are several different types of affiliate links you can have put in automatically. I have Amazon and Share-a-sale set up for me. I’m working on getting my Clickbank set up. Basically this is an easy way to have your affiliate links put in on posts that you write without you having to put any extra effort into it. What’s not to love?

Want to win a copy for your blog? I’m going to go old school here for the entries. Leave a comment with your blog url so I can check out your blog. I’ll randomly pick a winner using a random number generator. Giveaway ends 7/19.

Being a curly haired girl, there will never be a time that my curls won’t need moisture. Never. So I am always glad when I get the chance to try a new moisturizing hair care product. The most recent product I have received to review is HSI Professional Leave-In Hair Treatment with Argan Oil. It comes in a little brown glass bottle that seems like it could withstand being dropped without shattering into a million pieces…not that I would recommend that.

Some of the benefits this product is supposed to provide is being a frizz fighter, offering protection from heat and color, being a leave in conditioner, repairing damaged hair, and softening your hair. I would say my hair was definitely softer after using this product. It says that you need just a few drops but I ended up using about two quarter sized amounts for my hair. I washed my hair, removed the excess water, then parted my hair down the middle. I put one quarter sized amount on one side of my head, and then did the same with the other side. My hair felt softer immediately. In fact, I could tell the difference after applying the product to one side but not the other. My hair was also not nearly as frizzy when it dried.

I can not speak to using the product  to protect your hair from heat. My hair is naturally curly so I don’t use a curling iron or a blow dryer to style it. It is kinda making me want to try to use it on my flat ironed hair…as long as I’m not the one who has to flat iron it. I don’t really foresee myself going to a salon anytime soon so I guess I will have to stick with using it on my curly hair.

You can get this product for yourself here. And here are some discount codes to save some moola. TBargan2 50% off the 2oz bottle
TBargan4 60% off the 4oz bottle. I would recommend giving it a try if you tend to have dry, frizzy hair.

Cell phones can do all kind of awesome things nowadays. I am reviewing the Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale and it’s cool because you can sync your cell phone to it. This scale was specifically designed to encourage weight loss if you will use it. If you have a weight loss goal, maybe this scale can be a motivational tool to help you reach your goal.

When you get your scale, you can  sync your cell phone to it so that it tracks your progress. However, if you don’t have a smartphone, you can still use the scale :). The awesome thing about this scale is that the technology in this scale helps you by telling you how much you have lost instead of how much you weigh. So instead of focusing on the number of pounds you weigh, you can focus on your achievements. Because losing any amount of weight is an achievement.

Check it out on Amazon.

If it’s about time for you to get a new scale, why not give this one a try? If you are trying to lose weight, why not give this scale a try? If you like the idea of syncing your phone up to your scale to keep track of your weight, why not give this scale a try? It might be the tool you need to make a difference in your health.

I have always wanted to habla Espanol. Fact is, I took two years in Spanish in high school. I had a really good Spanish teacher. Really good. I was kind of a jerk to her in high school. Can I just get something off my chest? Okay, here’s my totally unrelated story about my Spanish teacher.

My Spanish teacher, Mrs. Ayers, was really good at teaching Spanish. The fact that I remember any Spanish at all is a testament to that fact. I don’t remember all the details about this part so some of this might be a little off. I did a program where I tutored kids at the local library. My Spanish teacher was part of this program somehow. She may have been a supervisor?

One of my good friends was getting paid as part of this program, which I believe was grant funded. I was a volunteer for part of the time before I finally got a position. I and a few other high school kids were tutors. We all tutored until basketball season then we all just quit. We just didn’t show up. So one day we were tutoring kids and the next day we weren’t. Yeah, major jerk thing to do. My Spanish teacher asked me what happened and gave me the advice that I should formally resign.

I remember working with her and she was really cool. She was a good teacher. She let us have fun in her class and had interesting projects to help us learn Spanish. I remember asking her how to say ridiculous things like “You have a really big head.” She told me. And I remember it still. Tu tiennes una cabeza grandisimo! In case you want to know ;).

I regret how I handled that. But, hey, I was like 15. Many of us do stupid stuff when we are 15. So anyway, I thought about all of this when I heard that I was able to review Pimsleur Spanish I. When I received the product, my first impression was that it was really well packaged. The set comes with several cds and I worried that they might come loose and get scratched up during shipping but it was packaged so well that did not happen.

After using the cds I have found that I have a renewed interest in Spanish. I love the way the cds make learning Spanish interesting and not at all boring. I think I’m going to take these with me to work and pop them in while I’m working in my classroom and pick up some Spanish while I’m working.

My motivation for learning Spanish is for teaching Spanish speaking students. I have ESOL on my certificate and I often get students who speak Spanish at home. I feel that it will be very helpful to be able to communicate with parents of my students as well as my students who speak Spanish.

You can order a set of your own on Amazon. PIMSLEUR SPANISH LEVEL 1 – Learn Spanish w/Dr. Pimsleur’s Famous Spanish Language Learning Method, Featured on PBS. Beginner Spanish to Intermediate Fast! – Press Play, Listen & Learn the Spanish Language – 30 Spanish Lessons/16 Audio CDs
