Welcome to Glandigomedia.com! We are a media company that specializes in providing useful information to web visitors. So you may be wondering, what type of information, exactly, is deemed useful? It depends on many things, but useful information to us generally falls under one of the following categories:
- It educates you about something you may not have been aware of before. This could be everything from health articles and product reviews to practical advice.
- It helps you become a smarter shopper. We all do quite a lot of shopping online now, so you can benefit a lot if you become a smart shopper. Smart shoppers, in our opinion, do things like use price comparison sites and coupon sites to make sure they are getting the best deal possible on everything they purchase online. They also do ample research on items they plan to buy, and read consumer reviews to make sure they know all the pros and cons of a product they are considering.
- It saves you money. This is a big one, since money is like gold to us. You can never have too much of it, but unfortunately, there are way too many companies and websites that are solely dedicated to making you part from your hard-earned money. Sometimes, it makes sense to spend money, even a lot of money, if you get something valuable in return.
- It increases well-being. Increasing well-being can include everything from enhancing your happiness to improving your overall health. To help us achieve this end, we'll be providing advice about things such as online dating, quitting smoking, and good nutrition.
- It makes you think. This can be anything from a book review or movie review, or simply an article addressing a modern day topic such as the use of cellphones. But the purpose of these kinds of articles is to make you stop and think about important matters of the day. Such matters can include things like politics, the environment, and our finances.
- Videos. Yes, you can go to sites like Youtube and watch clips to your heart's content. But how much time do you waste doing such things? The fact is, the majority of clips on Youtube are junk, and you can't just go by ratings to judge which clips will be of use to you. Wouldn't it be nice if an editor preselected useful videos for you? Well, that's what we're here for. Many of our articles will include links to videos that have been vetted by our writers and editors, so you can be assured they will have real value.
As you can see, the topics we intend to cover at GlandigoMedia.com are quite diverse. But we are open to suggestions as well, so if there is a topic you'd like our writers to research and write about, be sure to get in touch with us using our contact form.
Alternatively, if you are a writer yourself and would like to see some of your material published on a website such as ours, you can likewise get in touch with us to discuss rates and what types of articles you may be interested in. Please note, however, your writing must be of the highest professional standard. If it's something that could be published on the blog pages of a major online publication such as the Huffington Post, then there's a good chance we'd be interested in that level of writing.
In addition, while we do not mind pushing people's buttons or addressing controversial topics every now and then, we will not tolerate any articles or content that serve no purpose other than to spread hateful messages.
We intend to add articles bi-weekly, but this schedule may not always be adhered to, as much of what we publish depends on the availability of our writers and whether or not there is a timely topic we'd like to address on our site. This may not always be the case, and we certainly don't believe in simply populating our site with content just for the sake of adding content. We want our site to be concise and useful, which means every bit of information we provide here should have a clear purpose for existing. We won't just add articles that are fluff, and we regularly reject articles from contributors if we don't think the material presented will be of interest to our readers.
With all that being said, welcome again to our site. We look forward to providing you with rich, updated information, and hope you likewise enjoy visiting our site on a regular basis.
I like to test out various web services, and today I'll be talking about how I tested Eharmony a while back. As we all know, Eharmony is one of the largest and most successful online dating sites in the world. It's been claimed in recent Eharmony commercials that the site has helped over 1 million people get married. They often quote similar statistics, so I generally think of Eharmony as the dating site for marriage-minded people.
Joining the site and opening an account is free (Click here for an Eharmony free trial), but that doesn't mean it's a fast and easy process. Rather, when you first create an account, you are immediately presented with a personality test. In fact, you cannot access any areas of the site until you finish this test. It's a long test that may take some time, but you can always leave and come back later to complete the test. For me, it took about 45 minutes to complete. It's mostly answering a bunch of questions in multiple choice format, and I wouldn't exactly call the process fun, but it isn't unpleasant either.
If you make it through the test, you are then presented with a personality profile, which definitely makes for interesting reading. For the most part, the personality profile did a very good job of summing up my personality, which was a plus.
After that, you are ready to begin working on your profile. The dating profile is more or less like other dating profiles, where you add photos and a description, along with answers to a number of questions.
Finally, you'll be able to receive matches. Unlike other dating sites, Eharmony does not allow you to search and browse other member's profiles UNLESS you a matched with them first. So how many matches can you expect? I got four at first, with a few others being added each week. It's kind of nice because at that pace, I can give each of my matches the attention they deserve, and vice versa.
As for how compatible the matches are with me, that is something I cannot speak to since I have not met any of them face-to-face as of yet. If that changes, I will definitely update this page with information on how that went.
Episode VII has been out for a couple months now, and it's become the #1 domestic movie of all time, outstripping even the likes of Avatar. To be sure, Star Wars is a huge force in the movie business, but that's only half the story. Star Wars is even bigger in the toy and video game industry. Today, I'll be going over some of my favorite Star Wars video games of all time.
1. Star Wars Galaxies
To this day, this remains some people's favorite MMOG of all time. The reason? It's hard to pinpoint, but the fact remains that among sandbox-style MMOGs, this game stood out and was really ahead of its time. Unfortunately, Sony stopped supporting this game a while back, but there are still free servers you can use to play this game if you want. Just don't expect a huge community of players. It's still nice to use such servers to take a stroll down memory lane.
2. Knight of the Old Republic
This is the game that proved that a strong story can go a long way toward making a video game truly excel. The round-based combat system may take a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, be prepared for a gaming experience like no other. While the game is over 10 years old, it has aged really well, and you can now play it on iPad.
3. Star Wars: The Old Republic
This much-hyped MMOG was a disappointment to many people, but if you tamper your expectations and think of it more like a sequel to Knights of the Old Republic, only much bigger, then you're bound to have many hours of fun with this game. Best of all, the game is free to play, but you'll quickly realize that if you want to have the best experience, you'll need to either subscribe or make a habit of buying upgrades in the cartel marketplace.
Playing a good selection of video game costs money, of course, which not all of us have. The best solution in my mind is getting a Gamefly membership. By paying a membership fee each month, you can rent as many games as you like, on all the top platforms that people use today. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, check out this Gamefly free trial coupon which is offered by the free trial site, FreeTrialSpot.com.
Roughly one in five people have tried online dating, and the number is even higher among those who are single. There are dating sites for every budget. On the one hand, there are sites that do not charge and are completely free to its members. While such sites do charge for upgrades, all the basic features of the site can be used for free.
Then, on the other end of the spectrum, we have dating sites that charge for a monthly subscription. Examples of such sites include Zoosk, Christian Mingle, OurTime, Eharmony, and Match.com. You can join such sites and set up profiles for free, but to do anything meaningful on such sites, you'll first have to subscribe. There are many membership levels, but on average, you should expect to pay at least $30 - $40 a month if you join these kinds of sites.
This might seem like a lot to some young people. But there are, in fact, several ways you can bring down the cost of using the top dating sites like Match.com.
The first way is to use a Match.com free trial, which lasts for 3 days. This will save you money if you decide not to use the site, since you won't have to pay for it, as opposed to paying for a one-month membership only to discover the site isn't the one you want to use.
Second, you can use coupons if you do sign up for a subscription. At this time, you can get Match.com coupons that give you as much as 25% off regular subscription prices. Note that this can easily save you $10 - $20 or more per month, depending on the subscription plan you choose. To get Match.com free trials or coupons, go to this facebook page.
And last but not least, when you pick a subscription, you can opt for the longer subscription plans. The reason you want to do this is that the longer subscriptions in general provide you with a more favorable rate. For example, if you paid for a subscription on a monthly basis, your cost would be $42 per month. By contrast, a 6-month subscription would bring down your cost to $24 a month, saving you almost $20 each and every month. Therefore, as you can see, it is in your best interest to choose a longer subscription plan if you want to get the most favorable deals at Match.com.
For some time now, e-cigarettes have been a sensible opportunity for people who want to quit smoking to transition into something less harmful. Recent news stories hype the fact that some substances in the e-liquids used by e-cigarettes can cause cancer. But if you take the time to analyze the findings, it still seems evident that as a whole, using e-cigarettes is far less harmful than regular smoking. Because of this reason, I still feel comfortable telling my friends who smoke to try vaping instead.
I'll be the first person to admit, vaping can be a lot more confusing than smoking. Not only do you have tons of different e-cigarettes brands, you have innumerable setups, and to vape knowledgeably, you need to know things about e-liquids, atomizers, batteries, and even things like ohms and wattage. Despite this learning curve, millions of people have made the switch, and don't seem to be looking back.
But because vaping is a new industry that is not yet heavily regulated, consumers need to be careful about whom they purchase from. I have long favored only buying from U.S. companies, and ones that take their business seriously. Halo would be an example of one such company.
The downside to this approach, however, is that you sometimes have to pay more for your products. Take Halo, for example. They sell excellent batteries and their e-liquids are smooth and flavorful. There is no doubt their products are absolutely top-notch. But their prices are noticeably higher than what competitors charge for similar items.
In my opinion, the extra price you pay is worth it, and the good news is that there are in fact things you can do things to get a better deal. One thing I always do is check for Halo coupons before I check out. And just like clockwork, there is always a coupon that will give me 10% or more off my order. In fact, I got my latest coupon code for 12% off at http://e-cigbargains.com/halocigs/.
It's important to note that the e-liquids sold by Halo and said to be free of harmful substances (diacetyl) that have been found in many e-liquids. Inhaling this substance could lead to respiratory problems, so it is very important for you to avoid this substance, and Halo states on their website that their e-liquids do not contain any diacetyl.
As you may have guessed from my previous writings, I am a fan of online dating, and more specifically, of Match.com. One thing that makes Match.com uniques, which I have not yet talked about, is the fact that they host real-world events in your area. At these events, other singles on Match.com will show up, giving you the opportunity to meet and mingle with people in your area.
The events can be many different things, such as a cooking lesson or a simple social gathering at a bar. The diversity allows you to take part in an event that appeals to you. Of course, attending a Match.com event is entirely optional, but it could be a good idea in many respects.
While online dating by itself is a powerful tool that can get you some great results, ultimately, any meeting online has to lead to a real-world interaction. The problem when you go out on your own is that you often encounter people who are already in a relationship or who are already married. It's not easy to always find a place where mostly single people hang out. In this respect, Match.com events are the perfect complement for people who are on the site.
You could also use the events as a way of meeting people you are already interested in. Typically, when you meet someone you like on an online dating site, you would eventually agree to meet in person at a public place such as a cafe. Why not ask them to join you in attending an event? This can benefit you in a couple ways. First, you can meet the person you are interested in at a safe, public location. Second, if you don't hit it off with the person you are interested in, there are plenty of other single people at the event that you can interact with.
If you have not joined Match.com yet, this is one more reason why you should sign up. As I mentioned in previous writings, it is possible to join Match.com for free if you use special offers and coupons from sites such as DatingCoupons.net. Not only can you get free trials at these types of sites, you can often get a discount on Match.com subscriptions as well. So I encourage you to take advantage of such offers if you decide to join a dating site.
Years ago, when I went to college, we had to fill out a quick questionnaire that asked questions about our personalities. The purpose of this questionnaire? To find a similar person who would be assigned as my roommate. It was a crude form of compatibility matching, similar to the systems used by eharmony.
But do such systems work? That would depend on how sophisticated the matching system is. The dorm system I used was too simplistic, and didn't really work that great for me. But a more complex system like the one used by eHarmony definitely shows more promise.
At the heart of any compatibility matching system is the notion that people with similar personalities are more likely to get along with each other. While there are certainly exceptions to this, the vast majority of psychological research has supported this notion. Most of the time, similar people are more likely to become friends and get into relationships that last.
Although many people like to find people to date on your own, I encourage people to take a leap of faith and try something like eHarmony at least once in their lifetime if other ways of meeting people have not worked well for them in the past. Use this eharmony free trial to join the site at no charge: http://onlinedatingtrials.com/eharmony.php. By doing this, you'll be able to create an account, upload pictures, and begin receiving matches, which you can review for free. It should be enough for you to get a general idea of how the site operates, and help you decide whether or not you want to buy a subscription.

Today, I'd like to spend some time talking about business checks. For most people, checks are just a method of issuing a payment. But have you ever thought of them as marketing vehicles? If not, just ask yourself what will have more impact: a personal, hand-written check, or a fancy business check with a company's logo and slogan, along with intricate artwork? The answer is obvious.
But the big impediment for many people is that they don't have the money to order fancy checks from companies like Deluxe. In this article, I will help you solve this issue by providing some simple tips for getting nice checks cheaply.
1. Order a large number of checks.
When you go to Deluxe's online store and browser for a bit, you'll quickly notice that prices go down significantly when you order a large number of checks. For example, some checks could be up to $2 each if you order a small number. By contrast, if you order thousands of the same check, the price will fall to under 50 cents each. I recommend purchasing a year's worth of checks at once to get the most favorable price. Checks don't take up too much space, and they will last for many year, so there is no reason not to buy in bulk.
2. Use online coupons.
Many online check stores such as Deluxe offer coupon codes you can use to get a discount on your order. Make sure you use these online coupons, as they can often save you as much as 40% on your order. To view the latest Deluxe promo codes, head over to http://freebiebulletin.com/coupons/deluxe-discount-code.php.
3. Use eChecks instead of regular checks.
While a beautiful physical check can be impressive, eChecks can similarly make an impact on your customers for an entirely different reason. By using eChecks from companies like Deluxe, your company will prove that it uses cutting-edge technology. I'm always impressed by companies that make the most of modern technology, and I suspect your customers will be no different.
Moreover, eChecks are very simple to use. Customers will receive an email, which they simply need to print out and cash in at their bank.
I hope these suggestions help you approach checking in a different way, and think of it as a marketing tool instead of just a payment method.
