Does anyone know who Isobella Jade is?

On November 23, 2011, in Jade Store, by admin

I first saw this girl on youtube. She is a professional petite model from NYC. Her tips sound inspiring and she seems to know what she is talking about. She is also the author of two books based on her life experiences trying to become a short model in NYC. She’s a commercial print model because she can’t be a fashion model. But I read on other sites such as this http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2009/09/americas-next-top-model-petite-model-isobella-jade-on-antm-and-how-shorties-can-really-make-it-as-mo.html. Where people say she is a scam in their comments. Do you think she’s real and what she says is true? Or is she trying to mislead girls and their dreams? The weird thing is she never talks about who is really is. No one knows her true height or age. It’s strange to me. My sister believes her stories and tips and wants to follow them. But I have an unsure gut feeling about this girl and her tips. I don’t know if she’s a scam and trying to rip people off or it’s real. Her photos don’t look really professional, most of them look amateur. She used to go to people’s private apartments to take modeling photos but then she ran into a guy who disrespected her and she never again model for people asking in ad’s on Craigslist. She used to also be poor while trying to become a model by giving up her apartment, sleeping at friends houses, having no computer and instead used one at the apple store where she wrote her story etc. It’s rumored that she’s almost 30 years old. She was in college in 2000 and graduated in 2004. I’m not calling this girl a scam or a liar, so please don’t be rude. I’m just concerned because my sister wants to follow her tips and guidelines and I don’t want her to make a mistake. Please no rude answers, I’m only asking for someone who knows more about this. Can someone please help me with this? Thank you.

Hey, this is Isobella Jade. I was born in 1982. I am under 5’4". There is no misleading. I give advice and my opinion on how to skip the scams that I encountered, which are featured in my memoir Almost 5’4" as an awareness for girls. I don’t advocate for girls to make the mistakes I’ve made and overcome. But I do share how they can skip scams and my live through opinions on how to get ahead as a shorter model, in which I’ve found success. I do talk about some of the low experiences I have encountered and have written about them to bring awareness to the topics. If you visit my blog: http://petitemodelingtips.blogspot.com you will see this so. Of course people will comment negative things sometimes, but that come with the territory putting yourself out there. Yes in the past I did encounter some not so wonderful experiences while striving as a model, yes I did make some mistakes, and I did give up my apartment during a tough time in my pursuits, and I did write a book at the Apple Store. And I am not out to scam anyone, just shared what I’ve learned. At the early stage of my pursuits I experienced some gritty moments which I wrote honestly about in my books, but I do not suggest to use model-sites or the Internet to market yourself as a model. I may have associated with the wrong people, the wrong photographers and some mistakes in my early years, and within my books you will find this topic, -however that was many years ago and today I advocate about professionalism, and only surround myself with it.
On my blog, podcast radio show, and within my books you will find that I share things honestly, I am not going to pretend it is easy to be a model, it’s not, but if you know how to market what you have it is possible to find opportunities. I give advice from things I have lived through, experienced, overcome, and accomplished, advice on how to skip the scams, and why avoiding model-sites is best, and to aim higher, and strive for a professional experience, things I wish someone had told me. I model today with great agencies and brands, and I give advice on how with a realistic mindset and the proper photos and marketing spirit height isn’t everything in modeling, and you can get in touch through my website www.isobelladreams.com if you want.

 

Beginning early this year, google made some changes to their search ranking,   the reason cited is that google wanted to provide more relevant results, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, put it this way, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. The update was initiated more than a year ago, no wonder I saw a few of my keywords’ ranks dropped like a rock, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, some of the keywords even ranked better than before, it’s safe to say that old way of link building is doomed.

So what exactly is linking campaign the old way? a large percentage of SEO firms will do this,  they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, it’s safe to assume all of them are trash, the name link spamming are just for these sites. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

Maybe a few examples will make it clear. It was quite some time ago, I started promote the keyword, Automotive Tools, of course with old way of link building, lately I figured that every site in the campaign had way too many links, worst yet, those sites had no content at all. This strategy worked in the beginning, lately the keyword link stayed on the first page for a while, this was the case until google made the change. Something opposite happened to this keyword, chain pullers, most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, not too many plain links have been built, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? Actually this is all about content, so if you create great content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the 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, such as this interesting blog, baby stroller , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, and to my surprise, I have high ranks for some of  competitive keywords. As we can see, creating quality content and article marketing is what we have to do to get great result. Now imagine you have your own blog network, for instance trailer strap, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

At the end of day all you have to do is to create attractive content, share the content with people, in the mean time advertise your business with your content, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. Whatever you do, you will need persistence and patience, long term strategy is required to improve anything of significance, it doesn’t matter you’re doing SEO or advertising your business, keep doing what we have to do till the end of world. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, I believe you should see for yourself, for example lever load binder, quality content, nice presentation, indexed by google, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

By the way, the social media is the must have channel for your marketing effort. The Twitter tools is a wordpress plugin, you can install it, sign up for a twitter account and create a new application, configure your twitter tools prpperly, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s real easy and useful, it’s a big loss if you don’t use this tool.

Besides Tattoo Parlors… I know there’s a market out there somewhere. Maybe graphic designers?

I am in the World Wide Pressed Flower Guild
for artist and beginners as well.
www.wwpfg.org
and I have seen Chinese Calligraphy used often they are still looking for advertisers (I think) if that is what you are wanting.
Also schools I got some samples once from an Elementary
art teacher.
hope this helps.

 

I hear chinese people can draw good, and i want a cool face paint on me for this party

That sounds like a stereotype. Not all Chinese can draw well, some can just as some Americans can. So your best bet is to just find someone who draws well. If you like the chinese style, however, you might be able to find a picture of what you want on your face on the internet and take it to someone who can paint it on your face.

question about jade plant…?

On November 19, 2011, in Jade Store, by admin

My mom brought me a jade plant, its about 6 inches, its one she got at big lots (store) and it had about 7 stalks in the pot. she didnt know and before she gave it to me, she seperated them into 2 pots, and she had to cut through the roots. but i went online and read that thats not really good to have to rip through the roots. my question is is it bad to break the roots? and if so, what can i do to keep it from dying and how long should i wait to water it since she just seperated it?

also, right now where i live, its getting down in the 30-40s and i was wondering if thats too cold, should i leave it inside? and if so, how much light does it need? should i put it in the windowsill to get light or just leave it anywhere inside?

Your jade plant is a tough plant.

The jade needs to be in a sunny spot inside. 30-40s is to cold for it.

In the summer it needs some sun. Not noon sun because it can get sun burned.

Sounds like the plant might have been root bound.

The plant needs to be watered when the soil gets dry.

The site tells you how to take care of your plant.

Sometimes a plant goes into shock when it gets moved. It will come out of it.

 

Guanyin or Kwanyin, the Goddess of Mercy.

~ China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe, “Thousand-hand Guan Yin” Guan Yin is a Chinese goddess.Feeling music through speakers and guided by hand gestures, a troupe of deaf dancers in Beijing take steps to champion the rights of disabled people across the world ~

” Being deaf and mute, these disabled female performers endure pain and suffering in vigorous training, simply to deliver a message of love to mankind. ”

Guanyin or Kwanyin (aka), the Goddess of Mercy also known by Westerners as the Chinese Goddess of love and compassion has long occupied a unique place not only in Buddhism, but also in Chinese culture. The Chinese word “Guanyin is an abbreviation of “Guan shi yin” which denotes” seeing the voice of the world if rendered literally. Such a deity can be called as the deity who looks in every direction or the “Regarder of the cries of suffering beings”.

According to legend, Guanyin, the youngest daughter of a king, defied her father when he sought a husband for her. The angry king sent her away to a monastery with instructions that she should be compelled to obey. This only strengthened her resolve. So the king set fire to the monastery and ordered her execution when she was caught sitting erect reciting sutras. As she was about to be beheaded, the sword broke into two and a tiger from nowhere carried her away to a forest.

One day from afar she saw the king was sick and not responding to treatment, so she severed her arms and eyes to sacrifice them for him. The grieved king besought heaven and earth to make his daughter whole again. Soon, Guanyin had arms and eyes by the thousand, and bowing before her father, she urged him to practise good deeds to which the king readily agreed.

Actually legends have Guanyin in various forms. But the story of the Goddess in this one-thousand-hand form has had an immense appeal. Thus the thousand-hand deity is no longer an exclusive religious symbol but has become a popular cultural icon to religious followers and common folks alike.

The legendary Thousand-hand Guanyin as interpreted by the special artists plucked the heartstrings of the audience. In their rendition of the legendary goddess, they not only demonstrated their superb dancing skills in perfect unison with elegant and forceful movements, but attained a ye higher level to turn it into a live myth full of artistic appeal and stirring power on the stage.

Though we only saw one leading dancer on the stage, we saw in our mind’s eye a whole collective where 21 troupe members fused together as one human being with one shared heart. What we saw on the stage was the one Thousand-hand Guanyin, serene, holy and beautiful, that existed in each of the dancers’ hearts. While enjoying the colourful performance, we experienced a profound sense of tranquility and composure, a process of cleansing and purification of our souls.

We spetators can hardly imagine how much time and effort these artists must have invested in bringing about such a unique work of art. And only a collective with all its crew members bound together in unity, harmony and friendliness could make it.

The image of the Thousand-hand Guanyin is symbolic of maternal love and infinite compassion.

And the enlightenment we gain from the performance itself is that people with disabilities are also creators of both material and spiritual wealth. Such a spirit of perseverance in pursuing and creating a better life in the face of adversity should be followed by all of us.

Rank algorithm update from google weeded out a lot of good or bad websites,   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, in plain English, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. The update was initiated more than a year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, and a few of them even gained a few positions, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

What is old way of link building any way? a lot of marketing companies did and are doing the plain link building, they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, and most of them are useless, we call these sites link spamming sites. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

Examples will be great for explanation. It was quite some time ago, I started promote the keyword, load binders, at that time almost every body was doing plain linking campaign, 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, this was the case until google made the change. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain pullers, we put the link in relevant context, not too many plain links have been built, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? In fact the only thing matters here is content, so if you create great content, your rank will improve over time, since search engines are another kind of readers. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, such as this interesting blog, sue havens toys , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, and to my surprise, I have high ranks for some of  competitive keywords. Now you can see, blog marketing with great content is the way to go. Say you’re building your own bogging network, such as Snap Hooks, then you will have a powerful weapon in your SEO arsenal.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, share the content with people, promote your business with the content, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, long term strategy is required to improve anything of significance, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, keep writing, publishing, sharing and creating, you will see the day of success. One of the best articles directories is EzineArticle, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, let look at some aticles or posts which are published and indexed, cold shuts, explains some interesting concepts, quality content, nice presentation, indexed by google, all these points make it perfect for SEO.
