4 Main Reasons Why Some Trading Strategies Don’t Work

If you are having a hard time growing your money through bitcoin trading, you are in the right place. This article will provide you with some of main reasons why your strategy never works. A lot of experts believe that strategies play a vital role in the success of a trader. Hence, it is very crucial that you carefully and appropriately determine the right strategy that will work for you. This will also allow you to know the reasons why some strategies did not work out before.

Too Scared to Buy

According to experts, one of the profitable ways that a trader can do in bitcoin trading is bottom picking. Yet, it is also one of the most challenging parts. This is also the reason why some traders are afraid to do bottom picking. But for you to grow your money, you must always go for a strategy that delivers more profit. You just have to carefully calculate the risk and you are all set up.

You are depending on your emotions

Another reason why some traders fail is that they are allowing their emotions tor un wild. But in the realm of bitcoin trading, that should nit be the case. Emotions are expensive in trading and investing.

Not adapting to the changing market

The thing about bitcoin is that it is a changing market. There will always be new trends and that it is changing every now and then. Hence, for you to cope up with this change, you must be open and willing to adapt changing conditions. You miust switch your bias based in the information given by the market.


Is the bitcoin evolution a scam or a legit trading platform?  If you doubt the market and ask questions like this, you will have a hard time growing your money.

How to Build a Stylish Wardrobe for $10 Per Item (or Less)

Anyone familiar with my fashion philosophy knows that I advocate frugality. Whether you’re buying a coat, sandals, or jeans, there’s no reason why you should ever have to spend more than $10 per article of clothing (with three exceptions to this basic rule: 1) you are investing in a rare or very high quality fashion find, 2) you have medical needs that require you to wear special attire, like therapeutic shoes, or 3) you feel like splurging on something because you absolutely love it and have been dying to own it). Even with those exceptions, the majority of your wardrobe can be thriftily obtained and still look absolutely gorgeous. 

You might not believe that such a lean budget could possibly buy you anything of any aesthetic worth, let alone a real eye-whopper. This is where you are wrong. What if I told you that nothing I’m currently wearing cost more than $8 with tax? And what if I told you that everything I currently have on is cute, comfortable, and flattering? Now any of you chronic mallrats and hardcore fashionistas are probably scoffing or rolling your eyes right now. But if you’re willing to give it a go, here are my tips for building a stylish wardrobe at $10 (or less!) per item: 

*Go to discount stores: I recommend any store that has a reputation for bargains. Wal-Mart, Target, and Old Navy are obvious ones but Wet Seal, Forever 21, Gadzooks, JC Penney also offer good deals. I’m less of a fan of Fashion Bug but they advertise low prices, too. Steve  amp; Barry’s, a lesser known store mainly because they do not advertise and therefore rely solely on word-of-mouth, promises that everything in their store is $20 or under. Celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Amanda Bynes design for them. You can read an article about Steve  amp; Barry’s in the New York Times here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/01/fashion/01STEVE.html?th emc;=th 

*Wait for mark-downs: If you don’t like the selection at discount stores, hit more expensive ones but limit yourself to sales and clearance items of Hijab apparels then you can consider the store according to your budget and preference. You’d be surprised by how much even the priciest stores mark down their goods at the end of the season. For example, I’ve bought several items at Urban Outfitters that were $10 or less each. Sometimes marked-down items are hidden at the back of stores or in remote corners near the dressing rooms. If you can’t find the sales rack, don’t be afraid to ask an associate where the marked down duds are. 

*Visit thrift shops: There is no shame in buying secondhand clothes. There are also no health risks so long as you wash the clothes before wearing them. Be sure to always try the clothes on before you buy them; thrift shops have a wide variety of new and old brands that you’re probably unfamiliar with so you don’t want to risk buying something only to later discover that it doesn’t fit you. Many hospitals and churches run thrift shops as side projects so buying from them is essentially the same as sending them a charity paycheck around the holidays. Consider it an act of kindness that also allows you to walk home with some new-to-you treasures! To search for thrift shops in your area, go to: http://www.thethriftshopper.com/ 

*Haggle at flee markets: With a mixture of new and old, rare and run-of-the-mill, classy and trashy, flea markets are exciting places to shop in general. Flea markets, like thrift shops, often carry a plethora of interesting clothes but, unlike thrift shops, you have no place to try the duds on. As a result, you should be especially careful about what you buy and just how much you pay for it, unless you’re confident that it will fit. Always ask for a lower price if possible, too! Find flea markets in your state at: http://www.fleamarketguide.com/ 

*Frequent yard sales: Yard sales are basically mini versions of flea markets. The main difference is that whereas there are multiple vendors at a flea market, there is only one at a yard sale so you can’t comparison shop. Another difference is that people who hold yard sales usually do so because they’re cleaning out their house or moving away, which often means they’re a little desperate to get rid of things. As a result, don’t shy away from haggling—you might get some real bargains. Besides street signs, look for yard sale ads on bulletin boards in schools, community centers, churches, and grocery stores. 

*Shop online: Considering that I have never bought any clothes online, I am not a big advocate of web shopping. Why? You can only go by the vendor’s photograph of the item for reference (which isn’t necessarily the best representation) and, even worse, you cannot try the item on. I do, however, have friends who swear by online shopping. If you’re willing to take the risk, it may just be worth it (just always remember to factor the shipping and handling charge into the total cost!). eBay is probably the most classic and popular example but there are many other sites you can look, too. Whenever possible try to find someone else who has ordered through the site before, though, so you know that it is credible. 

*Throw clothes swaps: If you can’t afford to spend any money on clothes and you have friends who wear your size, throwing clothes swaps is a great idea. Simply find a time and place to hold the event and call/email your friends to bring several pieces of clothes they no longer want. The more people who attend and the more each individual person brings, the greater your chances are of finding items you can adopt into your wardrobe. You can even host a clothes swap at your church, dorm hall, or community center for a bigger turnout and wider selection. 

All About Google Blogger: Benefits to Using Google Blogger

Some myths and misconceptions about Google Blogger

Many of the benefits to using Google Blogger as a blogging platform are obvious. Before we delve into the benefits, however, let’s take a brief look at some of the common myths that tend to exist about the Google Blogger platform.

In Blogger’s early days, before the Google acquisition, the site would be unavailable from time to time because of server issues and periodic site maintenance. It is not uncommon to hear some say that Blogger is unavailable too much which prevents them from making a blog post and their readers from reading their blog. Whereas this complaint is a valid one, the issue does not exist today and hasn’t for many years. Since Google acquired Blogger, moments of unavailability are virtually unheard of.

Another complaint is that Blogger randomly deletes blogs for no reason. This claim is just absolutely silly. It does not behoove Blogger in the slightest to randomly delete blogs. Most of the users who complain about this had their blog deleted due to some sort of violation of the terms of services. You can read the terms of service on Google’s website or you can try ctr manipulation to learn more the art of blogging. Just recently, I found a blog that was using a domain name that I wanted. This blog had one post and was created five years ago. For five years this blog has been sitting there with no activity or maintenance; not doing any good for any party involved. It does not benefit the blogger, it does not benefit the reader and it does not benefit Google Blogger. If that blog can survive, I’m sure you have nothing to worry about.

Have you ever heard that Google Blogger does not offer enough features? Well, you’re right, but only to an extent. Blogging software like WordPress and TypePad offer more features simply because they are paid for by the blogger. They also allow you to purchase third-party plug-ins that help to add to the customization of the blog. Google Blogger is a completely free blogging platform. Even though it is a free platform, it still offers a wide array of features and new ones are constantly being added to make blogging easier and more proficient for the blogger. This is yet another issue that has been vastly improving since the acquisition by Google.

Some will also say that Google Blogger is not a platform for professional bloggers; that it is a beginner’s blogging platform. This, again, used to be the perception since it is free and, before the Google acquisition, did not offer a whole lot of features to the blogger. Once again, this issue has changed and continues to change. Google Blogger is the blogging home for many beginners and professionals alike.

The benefits of Google Blogger

As has been the predominant theme, since the Google Acquisition, Blogger has stood out in comparison to the other major blogging platforms. Google is constantly adding new features and applications that one can easily integrate into their blog. I don’t suppose I have to go into too much detail about one of the biggest benefits. It’s free! Anyone with a computer and an internet connection can start their own blog and create an online presence like never before. Literally, anyone can have a home on the Internet at absolutely no cost to them. The limits of that online presence are only determined by the blogger.

Ease of use is the next most obvious benefits. Google Blogger brings a blogging platform to bloggers all over the world that is literally point-and-click in its functionality. Maintaining a blog on the Goggle Blogger platform could not be simpler with its WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) online editor. You don’t have to know any kind of HTML or CSS code to customize and maintain your blog like a professional blogger. Just because you don’t have to, however, doesn’t mean you can’t. If you know a little or a lot of HTML and CSS code, you still have the option of incorporating it into your blog’s layout and the individual posts.

Another benefit is the ever increasing addition of features and applications. Google is not going to make a bad name for themselves. They are intent on delivering products to their customers that easily compete with the biggest names out there and they do this for free. As Google increases in size, so do the features and functions of the Google Blogger platform. You can keep up on new updates new features Google adds to the platform by visiting http://www.buzz.blogger.com.

Google Blogger offers the option of establishing your own domain name to your blog. Instead of having birdsofafeather.blogspot.com, you could choose to have birdsofafeather.com. It gives your blog a more professional appearance and leaves an impression upon your readers that you are a professional blogger.

The last benefit I’ll touch on is probably its most appealing benefit. It makes you money! Setting up your blog to make you money is called monetization. There are people out there who have quit their day jobs and work from their home as professional bloggers because of the income their blogs provide them. The easiest way to begin earning money from your blog is to integrate Google AdSense ads on your blog. Again, since the Google acquisition of Blogger, this task could not have been made easier. All you have to do is click two buttons to place AdSense ads on your blog and begin generating revenue.

There are many other ways that Google Blogger allows you to monetize your blog in addition to the Google AdSense program. You have the option of placing third-party ads on your blog as well as several affiliate programs like the Amazon.com affiliate program. I will be spending much time on the details of monetizing your blog later on in this series. Now that you have been thoroughly introduced to Google Blogger as a blogging platform, we are going to get to business and get you started blogging with Google Blogger in the next article of this series.
