Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2011 debates whether financing a college education is a sound money management decision in light of the hefty debt load and uncertain employment of students graduating from college. The post, entitled Crippled by Student Debt is available at

The Wall Street Journal recently dubbed the class of 2011 as the most indebted college graduates ever, with an adjusted average debt load in excess of $ 22,000 ? an astounding 47% increase over a decade ago! The article notes that regardless of the sluggish economy, college tuition continues to rise 5% annually with parents less able to provide financial assistance to their off-spring.

According the WSJ ?as of 2009, the annual pre-tax income of households headed by people with at least a college degree exceeded that of less-educated households by 101%, up from 91% in 2006. As of April, the unemployment rate among college graduates stood at 4.5%, compared to 9.7% for those with only a high-school diploma and 14.6% for those who never finished high school.?

Money management blog addresses these pressures in a recent post entitled Crippled by Student Debt. In discussing the ROI of a college education Vered Deleeuw, the posts author, agrees with the WSJ article noting that ?the sad reality is that while college graduates have traditionally earned more than high school graduates, this gap in earnings has remained stable, while college costs have skyrocketed.?

Gledhill went on to say, ?For the recovery to turn into a self-sustaining expansion, we need people to have wage income coming in and until that happens, we are still in a tenuous position.?

Find More Blogging For Money Press Releases

Bloomsburg, PA (PRWEB) November 6, 2006

Cash Columns is a new advertising project that allows everyone from bloggers to online businesses to promote their website, and make a return on the investment. This experiment in online marketing is being developed by Computer Science student Brian Mears. All funds made from this project will go towards advertiser payouts, and Mears' university schooling costs.

The concept of this project is very simple, but a bit hard to explain without seeing it firsthand. There are 8 columns of advertising spaces, starting out at $ 1 per ad. When someone buys the first ad in that column, the price doubles. When a second person buys an ad in the column for $ 2, the first person is refunded, and the price of that column doubles again to $ 4. A third advertisement in that row would give the second person a refund, and the first person a second refund. The price for a fourth advertisement in the column would increase to $ 8, and so on. The first person in that column would now have double their money back and the ad continues to stay, no matter how many more are placed.

All ads placed on Cash Columns are guaranteed to stay up for a minimum of 5 years. Traffic is brought into the site via blogs, media, backlinks, search engines, and paid advertisements. This insures that customers of Cash Columns continue to receive traffic, and that new prospects for buying advertisements are obtained. Cash Columns cannot guarantee that money will be made, only that it is a high possibility. The main feature is the virally spreading advertisement space, the possibility of a return on your investment is only an added bonus.

Cash Columns is reminiscent of the million dollar homepage, known for selling over one million dollars in pixel advertising space, but the concept is different. Instead of selling pixel ads which cost a minimum of $ 1000 for a decent space and have no investment value, Cash Columns can make advertisers money. Not only is there the ability to make 200% back on what the original payment for the space, but all ads will still stay in place receiving traffic for years to come, promising the possibility of long term website exposure and sales.

Media coverage and high PR will also help Cash Columns become a success. As people buy advertisements and receive money from their investment, they will tend to tell other people, blogging about their success with the project and causing others to give it a try. This is the viral marketing that will ultimately make it a success.

The spaces on Cash Columns are still at a very affordable starting price, which will attract many people to try it out and bringing prices up. Eventually, prices will go high enough that it will be unaffordable to most people, but a new idea to counter this is underway and will be released when necessary.

All advertisers on Cash Columns are encouraged to review and release longterm findings to the general online public. This project will not only be a useful marketing tool, but will also help provide detailed results in viral advertising.

Waterloo, ON (PRWEB) June 20, 2005

Canadian author Eric Giguere has just published a new consumer computer book called “Make Easy Money with Google: Using the AdSense Advertising System”. This book for non-technical computer users walks them through the process of creating profitable blogs and Web sites, with no programming required. The sites make money using Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Inc.'s AdSense program, the easiest way for the average person to tap into the ever-increasing online advertising revenue pool.

*(Book cover:

The book is written in a breezy, conversational style and lacks the complicated jargon found in many computer books. The chapters are linked together by a narrative that follows three of the author's friends as they use the techniques described in the book to build their own money-making sites and blogs, a style reminiscent of easy-to-understand books like The Wealthy Barber.

According to a recent report by Merrill Lynch, online ad spending in the United States alone is expected to grow by 29% this year to 12.4 billion dollars. Google's AdSense program makes it possible for individuals to participate in this growth by monetizing content that they already own and any new content they create.

Early reviews praise the book for its approachability. “People will find this book useful,” says author and AdSense user C. Enrique Ortiz, “and will learn not only about Google, but also about the Web.” Others appreciate its real world examples and the use of characters they can identify with.

About the Author

Eric Giguere is a writer and software developer residing in Waterloo, Ontario, who has written three books and hundreds of articles about computers and computer programming. Having discovered how easy it was to make money from his own Web site using Google's AdSense program, he decided to write a non-technical book about it that his father could understand and enjoy reading.
