I’ve heard that 13 people signed up to new hosting packages with Blacknight already thanks to that last blog post. Not bad in 24 hours. You have until midnight tonight to use the 25% off shared hosting voucher, the code is: mulley
You don’t need to be a blogger to avail. 25% off is a pretty damned fine discount.
Ok maybe not but from today January 7th to January 9th, if you take out a new shared hosting package with Blacknight and use the voucher/code: mulley then you’ll get 25% off. Why not reblog and reTweet this and Facebook it and all the rest. Not a bad aul deal now in fairness.
Please note I get nothing out of this myself. Yes, I’m happy to do the same deal for other companies if I think it’s a worthwhile offer to the readers. If you want me to offer a discount to 1500 subscribers and another 1500 daily readers then it’s got to be worth the effort.
Google says that Irish tech/dev people aren’t good enough for them. As is pointed out, a HR process where 13 interviews over 6-9 months is almost the standard is inefficient and just plain stupid. Who in this economic climate can wait that long?
TeenCamp Ireland is only around the corner (January 17th) and you can help out in a few ways. They’re looking to increase teens registering, they’re looking to have more teens do talks and they need sponsors for food, for the projector and AV and other bits and pieces.
So what can you do?
1. Spread the word. Maybe blog about it? Get them some press. Email some teenagers you think would like to go along. (You know those clever ones who will end up being your boss in about 9 years.) Anyone know those CTYI kids? Tell em. Add it as a note to Facebook. Send it out via your LinkedIn Network. You’re getting the idea now so I’ll stop.
2. Sponsor them or find them some sponsors.
3. Loan them a projector or AV somethings or others.
Let’s get the kids sharing with the kids and educating each other. Or else I’ll send you a special thank you card:
Top visited blogs in Ireland? Alexa is always contrary when it comes to these things as a few dozen people with the toolbar and your blog as the homepage will boost you up. Kudos to Paul though on the hard work putting this together. Go super-sleuth!
This is not a clever marketing idea at all. This is stupid. If people in your coffee shop ain’t buying coffee despite the aroma and look of your products, changing the network names to product names will hardly help. God almighty, THEY ARE IN YOUR STORE and you can’t get them to consume? Network names aren’t the issue people.
They say you use these to make sure you’re getting decaf. I’d use them to make sure the coffee has a proper kick. Guarantee they’ll be used to test your pee.
If you’re a nerd and have a girlfriend (it can happen) and you have no fashion sense (already a given) then you’ll think this Rubick’s cube bag would be a great present for your missus. She’ll probably say thanks too, she is afterall a very patient and understanding girl.
