The mission of 41pounds.org is to reduce the amount of paper that is wasted on junk mail, thereby saving trees. When you sign up for their services, a third of the 41 dollars goes to charities that you select. Several of the charities, actually will plant a tree for you if they are selected to receive the donation.
Its been a while since I posted anything. I had actually meant to get this post out a little sooner, but I got distracted with life…got to hate when life gets in the way. Sorry.
For some odd reason, which I am not exactly sure, there are only 7 on the list where there should be 10. I must have edited the list around the 15th, but failed to add three more. The other three must have been commentators that don’t have blogs.
I just got a Greenpeace newsletter that told me about a whaling scandal that could prove to be good news for the campaign to stop whaling. According to the Greenpeace article Stolen whale meat scandal rocks Japan, whale meat was being hidden in crew quarters and shipped back home as “cardboard” or “Salted Food Stuffs”, and then sold on the black market. Check out the Greenpeace articles for details and to add your letter to the Japanese Government.
A cool idea. eBooks – Another Way to go Green! I never thought of ebooks as being a green product, but if you read an ebook instead of a real book, it does reduce paper usage.
I have been getting a ton of comments of late, and have a Commenting policy of only giving links to sites that have blogs. If the comment is really good, and the site does not have a blog, occasionally, I have been known to remove the link and place it at then end of the comment. If you don’t have a link to your comment signature, when I visit your site, and I will, in order to get a link from Pixelheadonline, you need to have a blog associated with your site, and linked to from the front page. So I generally look for the word “blog” or “weblog” on the front page.
Using blogs for SEO purposes is something that I am not entirely against, but I don’t want to encourage sites without blogs to come and add a little sentence and expect to receive a link to their site with a keyword rich link. If a site owner that does not have a blog, is visiting this blog or another blog, then she or he probably understands the importance of link building, but does not understand what a blog can do for their site. I believe that every site out there should have a blog.
