Is there any good paper for chinese calligraphy in manila, phil? rice paper, whatnot?

sa ongpin


A large horse hair brush (pointed not flat).

Chinese ink (usually comes in a brick and activated with water or you can use standard black indian ink that has been thinned with water)

Rice paper or tracing paper works well. You can do practice drawings on large sheets of newsprint too, but it tends to buckle from the water.


I need a good website that has detailed information on art from the Shang Dynasty, Chou Dynasty,Ch’in Dynasty,Han Dynasty,Sui Dynasty, T’ang Dynasty, Sung Dynasty, and Ming Dynasty.

Here’s a good site I found. =)


What compliments Jade dress?

will teal go well?

My date is wearing teal ( we confused the color as we got rushed because the store was busy and the lady was kind of rude) anyways so his tie will be teal. I really wanted to match with him. but my dress only comes in turquoise and jade. :( so if you could help me by telling me what you think that would be fantastic! :)

Do not try to match his tie I would think, because it is more likely to be off and clashy.

Dark brown, tan and khaki

  Short while ago google had changed their ranking algorithm,   in the hope of furnishing it’s search users better results, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, put it this way, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. Google started this change almost one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, some of the keywords even ranked better than before, it becomes clear that link building the old way is the thing of past, probably due to links crammed sites being thrown away by google.

Now what on earth is plain link building and how do people do it? a lot of marketing companies did and are doing the plain link building, they add your links to those linking websites without context, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, almost all of them are garbage, the name link spamming are just for these sites. New google algorithm most likely will punish these link spammers,  any links on them will be affected too. 

Let’s check out a few examples. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I started with this keyword, steel cargo bar, of course with old way of link building, a lot of sites I used had too many links, worst yet, those sites had no content at all. This strategy worked in the beginning, eventually the keyword could be found on first page, the party was over when google updated it’s algorithm. Something opposite happened to this keyword, chain puller , we put the link in relevant context, almost no plain links, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? In fact the only thing matters here is content, when you create unique and quality content, you will attract readers as well as search engines. You may think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, for instance let’s examine this one, top smartphones , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. As far as SEO concerned, creating quality content and article marketing is what we have to do to get great result. Say you’re building your own bogging network, such as luggage cord, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

At the end of day all you need to do is to create quality content, share the content with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, this strategy will prevail in short or long term. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, it doesn’t matter you’re doing SEO or advertising your business, now all we need to do is to give our love for creating and sharing quality content and not to worry about the ranking every day. When publisinh articles, I prefer ezine, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, and some popular blogs will get your post indexed in minutes, there venues are ideal for promoting your site, let look at some aticles or posts which are published and indexed, say this one, tow straps , nice writing, good content, published on popular site, this article serves it’s purpose well.

By the way, the social media is the must have channel for your marketing effort. For wordpress blogs, I recommend twitter tools, then go ahead register a new twitter account and app, link your blog to twitter, then every new post on your blog will show up in your twitter page, it’s easy and really useful, it’s a big loss if you don’t use this tool.

If most/all languages, they include punctuation marks. Since punctuation marks, and pinyin were introduced to the Chinese language, does calligraphy include punctuation marks?

No, Chinese calligraphy with brushes does not have punctuation marks.

im a teen and i just want a cool modern painting and around the edges i want to do chinese or japanese symbols but idk which to do? and also if i do chinese, what chinese things could i incorporate from the chinese culture into the painting? something that a modern day american teen would think is cool? and the same for japanese. Please help and dont be rude! thanks(:

You could use kanji, which are traditional Chinese characters (well, most are, anyway). If you do Chinese, you could draw carps, lotus flowers, goldfish, lilies…

For Japanese, you could draw koi fish, sakura blossoms…

Good luck! :)


psychedelic art is about contrasts of the elements of art. Some depend on subtle changes and others on dramatic changes.
Chinese Art is about flow of the elements of art. It is again subtle in nature and portraits of people.


I have a jade elephant necklace that I have absolutely no use for and wish to get rid of it, so I was wondering if anyone knew of jewelry places that will buy back this necklace in Hanford or Lemoore California. Preferably if they will give you cash for it and not store credit.

You would get more money for it on Craig’s List.
