Blogging As A Sideline Job

I have been blogging since 2010. I have never heard of it before until I came across this blog that I really enjoyed reading. I thought it was cool being able to express your own opinion about things. At first, I didn't know that you can make money from it. When I found that out, I got more interested and decided to make one. I found out that it wasn't that easy to make money from it. A lot of work involved but I managed to get my blog established to where I can make some money out of it, not a whole lot but it's better than none! Later on, I made 3 more blogs and so blogging has been my sideline job for over 3 years as I am staying home taking care of my family!

Anyway, I guess a lot of people have heard about making money from blogging so as of February of 2011, over 156 million blogs were in existence on the internet as shown in the infographic below! WOW that's a lot! Just imagine visiting every one of those blogs! It will probably take years and years to visit all of it! LOL!

Funny Valentines Day Card

I know that Valentines day was 3 days ago but I just want to share this funny Valentines Day card that I bought for my mother-in-law. When I saw it at the store, I knew I had to buy it for her. I thought it suits her situation whenever she comes over to eat dinner with us! Most of the time it is such a chaos in the house because of the 2 kids who most of the time makes so much noise and plays very roughly with each other! It is enough to drive anybody insane! So she would indeed feel like she walked into the wrong home if everybody was quiet and well-behaved! LOL!

Subaru Impreza Car Parts: Replacing The Brake Pads

Replacing the brake pads on the Subaru Impreza is fairly straightforward and shouldn’t take too much time or energy. Make sure that you have the best quality brake pads from a place that sellsSubaru Impreza car parts, and ensure that they are the right type of pads for your vehicle before you begin the procedure.

Replacing the Front Brake Pads on a Subaru Impreza

In order to do this job correctly, you are going to need a few tools: a c-clamp for compressing the piston in the caliper, a wrench to loosen the lug nuts on the wheels, a car jack and jack stand to raise and hold the car in place, and a socket or wrench to remove one of the caliper bolts.
1.
The first thing to do is to loosen the lug nuts on the wheel you are working on. Use the wrench to loosen them up and then jack the car up and slip the stand under it to secure it into place and prevent it from accidentally falling. Remove the lug nuts by hand, and then slip the wheel off to reveal the brake pads and rotor.
2.
Before you remove the old brake pads, inspect the rotor for any damage or uneven wear. If you replace the pads soon enough you shouldn’t see any grooves cut into the rotor from worn-down pads. If the rotor is bad, you will need to replace it as well.
3.
Assuming the rotor is fine, the next job is to lift away the caliper so that you can access the pads beneath. This is done by removing the lower bolt that holds the caliper in place. The upper bolt could be removed, but it is easier to remove the lower one and pivot the caliper around the upper one; this will remove the chance of putting stress on the brake line. Once the lower bolt is out, rotate the caliper upward around the upper bolt so that the pads are exposed.
4.
Now that the pads are exposed, it is fairly simple to remove them and secure the new pads in their place.
5.
Before you rotate the caliper down, you will need to squeeze closed the piston inside it, driving the brake fluid back into the system; this is because the new pads are thicker than the old pads and when you rotate the caliper back down, the piston inside will obstruct the movement. The good news is that since the system remains closed, you will not have to do any priming to remove air, and a few pumps of the brake pedal will have everything back to normal once the job is complete.
6.
Use a C-clamp to squeeze the piston fully open to that it sinks back into the caliper before rotating the caliper down and replacing the bolt. After that, affix the tire and you are good to go.
Remember: using good quality Subaru Impreza car parts will prolong the life of your vehicle and help keep you and your passengers safe on the roads.

V-Day Is Soon To Be Here!

Valentines day is just around the corner, do you have special plans for this coming HE♥'RTs day? As for me and my family, nothing really. To us it is just another ordinary day. My husband and I do give each other V-day cards and that's pretty much it.

Anyway, my son's class already sent a notice and list that they will be having a V-day snack in their class and exchange cards on that day. They are asking for volunteers to bring in the snacks. The past two years, I always buy the Valentine's card to give to his classmates and teachers but this time I want to make something special. I decided to make a treat bags for the kids this year. I haven't done it yet but I already have the idea of how to put it together. I just need to buy the candies and make the bags. I still have until next week to do it...
