My user name is Paramedic spelled backwards. The rest should be self-explanatory.

А вы хотите зарабатывать с блога?
Недавно заметил в блоге Игоря Бигдана рекламный баннер, где он предлагает рекламу в своем блоге. И тоже задумался над тем, как бы получить хотя бы небольшую копеечку со своего увлечения.
Наткнулся на форуме блоггеров http://www.bloggers.su/forum/
на раздел о монетизации блогов http://www.bloggers.su/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29
, там обсуждаются многие вопросы, смысл которых мне непонятен. Тем не менее, некоторые из участников озвучивали цифры, и у некоторых якобы доход с блога был такой, что с основной работы можно было уйти... я бы тоже так хотел...
Особенно заинтересовала тема: Как начать зарабатывать на блоге?
В ней новичкам, в т.ч. и мне, объясняют как найти рекламодателей для блога, какими способами вообще можно заработать... короче интересно блин и перспективно, как мне кажется.
А вы что думаете об этом?

I wouldn't say my name is weird or anything, but, basically the story behind it goes like this. I wanted to make a 'friends only' LJ and my old name was 'tunny_13' which really, really sucked. So I was trying to think of a new name, and at that time things kept going wrong and the one thought that would commonly reoccur in my head would be "f*cking wonderful"
So I thought, since it basically connected with me and my life as a person, 'fckingwonderful' would be fitting as a username for a site that basically 'documents' (for lack of a better word) my life.

Accepting opinion articles!
I'm Kimberly and I host a blog that will be launched on August 11th, 2008 about the different metaverses (http://blog.metaversenow.com
). A metaverse is an online community, either 3D rendered or blogged, or forums... whatever. I had an idea for an article about usernames/handles for blogs, screennames, video games and the like. I was very happy to find this community!
I am collecting articles written by people who have an interesting opinion to such topics. I am also asking other groups for articles on other web-based goodies because, well, there is one of me and roughly 215.5 MILLION of you. I'm not a master at every topic (tho I usually have an opinion!) and decided to let other voices be heard.
Anyways, I would love a few people to write and submit short articles for the blog (fame, anyone?). Informative, funny, and personal is the way to go and if I get multiple write-ups, I'd of course put them all in the entry. A few questions to answer are:
Who are you and why are you an expert?
How did you come up with your username/handle?
Strangest username/handle ever seen?
Do you use your username/handle elsewhere?
Opinion, opinion, opinion!!!
For more info, or to send me a heads up that you're interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Remember, the sooner the better as I am storing entries for the August 11th launch!
Hope to hear from you!

i was at a party and this hot kid wanted to move the party from his house to someone elses and i said i knew of another party we can go to, he's like "great, let's partyfuck it." i put this confused face on and he explained that partyfuck means when you bring one big party and crash another big party.
i was thinking of getting a new username and i wanted something fun and the word partyfuck just came to mind.
also, i like to party & fuck, so it fits.

Wow... I just happen to post above someone with 'snail' in their name. Current Mood: blah
A few years ago, I had an epiphany. I realized, that I was like a snail. I'm moving slowly, always waiting for something to happen. So I guess 'heartofasnail' is just my poetic way of getting my personality across.

Hi guys, ok so my name explanation is pretty lame, but here goes.
I was going to make a new lj and so my brother always says (after i do something stupid) that i have the brains of a dead fly, but i didn't like that (it would have something like deadflybrains) so i kept thinking and came up with snailsbrain since i'm sure snails are pretty stupid like that. ^^ Ok that's my story i hope you all enjoyed it.

There's nothing too interesting or weird behind this username. I deleted my former account and when making a new one.. I ran into a trouble. What name? Most of the ones I would have liked were already taken. So, I take the name of my favourite character - one of them - Hibari Kyouya. His name, 'Hibari'
literally means skylark.
So, I tried that. Didn't work. I tried skylark
in different languages. Finally I ran into allodola
, Italian for skylark. (I love Italian, so..) but since allodola was already taken, I took allodole,
which means skylarks, as in, many of them, but, uhh. Yeah.
I love it, since it's a beautiful word and suits me. Current Mood: amused

I was downloading fonts and came across one called "TYPEWRONG". I was thinking of making a new lj at the time and once I saw the font name I thought it would make an awesome username name as well.
This is what the actual font looks like. Current Mood: pensive

Well, it was going to be "The Sensitive Heart", but at the time it was taken. So I changed it into "A Sensitive Heart" which--I think--Is a tad bit better. Basically, I'm a very sensitive person... I can get hurt easily, I'm an introvert, I'm shy, and I'm not really good at talking with people. But if you really get to know me, I'm a psycho.
The name speaks for itself :] Current Mood: aggravated

And now my story.
When I worked on my first blog, I named it Astrodome Mezzanine or Astrodome Mezz for short, since I have a love affair with that stadium and will go ape for anyone that tries to tear it down. Well, when I bought my first domains, I decided to rename the site with something cooler since I had renamed my FL collective Nosebleed Seats from Behind Past Eyes. I remembered Six Flags Astroworld which closed about two years ago in its honor I renamed my site Ashes of Astroworld. However LJ's name space was too big so it got shortened to astroworldashes

Mine's Pretty Obvious, I Think
I came up with snarryvader81
for my fanfiction.net account. At the time, 'snarry' was the name of my favorite pairing, Snape/Harry, 'Vader' is from Star Wars, and 81 were the last two numbers of my grandmother's email. I'd originally gone for some other thing I can't remember but I put in the wrong email address for confirmation so nothing ever came of it. And, after a while, snarryvader81
just stuck. Current Mood: stressed

A midnight angel is one who waits in the night for those who are lost and those who are misguided. She is an angel of light who can only exist in a world of darkness. Her purpose is to guide lost souls in the direction of the light without ever being able to step foot in the light. Surrounded by so much darkness and so much evil it is her job to share the light within her to others so that they may be able to reach the light. That is my job here in this world and in this life. My journey starts here with this entry sharing my messed up life in order to help those who may need it with their own. I am always here to help, I will always be a light..... Current Mood: all alone

Hey, I've been on Livejournal for over a year and this is my third account. the first two had to be deleted for various reasons. But I would like to share this one and my first one. my first one was Jazzwantssushi
. Well I used to really love Harry Potter, and I made up a OC character for Fanfiction, and her name was Jazz, and she loved sushi. so, Jazz+wants+sushi.
now this one is my brand new one. Autophoblamb
. well the first half, autophob, is short for autophobic. which is a fear of being alone which I mildly am, (I get panicky and all that crap) and the second half, Lamb, is for my new obsession Twilight. Bella is terrified of Edward leaving her. so there you go. Audophob+lamb

My boyfriend calvinincarnate
, IMed me one day with it. He was all "Oh babygirl, ilyshrn."
He kept doing it, until I got fed up and asked him what it meant.
It meant, "I love you so hard right now". :D I loved it.

Dreams are the eraser dust I blow off my page.
They fade into the emptiness, another dark gray day.
Dreams are only memories of the plans I had back then.
Dreams are eraser dust and now I use a pen.
Three years ago, I read this quote off a website and decided to create an lj based on it.

Once upon a time a couple of years ago, I took a great interest in elves - as in, the short fair creatures of Norse mythology and for some reason became convinced that I was a descendent of these creatures (don't ask). I found a website where you tell them about yourself and your elfin experiences, and they give you an elfin name. I tried it and they said YADARFYN, which apparently means something like "honours the ancesters". And lo, this name/word was not yet in existence, and it's a rather pretty name too. So I use it for damn near all my internet identities.
By the way, I don't still think I'm an elf descendent.

Well, I recently got this journal (just a couple months ago) and I was trying to figure out a good username. I remember I had iTunes going, and for every song I listened to, I tried to pick a good line out of it. Pretty much... they were all either taken or too long. I wanted something to the effect of myundergroundpedestal
, relating to Staring into Space by Painting Our Hearts
. But of course, that's much too long.
I was starting to give up... but then Stay
came on, by my absolute favorite band. And I've always loved that song, because it describes the guys perfectly. There's this one part I especially like... and that's where I got my name from. (:
sing the sunset to me
sing the moonlight to me
sing the night sky and stars
but sing of your love most of all

My RL name is Megan adn I came up with my username when I was listening to My Chemical Romance's Sharpest Lives from the Black Parade album. I was listening to the song when this part came on when I was zoning out: Current Mood: giddy
There's a place in the dark where the animals go
You can take off your skin in the cannibal glow
Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands
Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo
This is my favorite part of the song and I decided to use it to create my username.
