    Cinnamon roll!

    One day I wanted a cinnamon roll. They're a huge thing in Sweden, the traditional pastry for a Swedish "fika" break.

    But I didn't have any. It was raining, so I didn't want to go out to buy one, and I didn't feel like baking. So I painted one instead!



    It's 19 x 24 centimeters in size, and I plan to hang it in my kitchen. Gonna do one more painting of something else, same size, to match that one and hang next to it.

    Can you tell I like food...?

    Another painting!

    Here's another painting I made earlier this fall, and I quite like it! It was a commissioned painting for my sister, who recently moved to a new house and wanted something unique. I call it "Little leaf of horrors", as the plant is called a Monstera.


    It's A4 size, I prefer to paint small and detailed pieces over large or more abstract stuff. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to paint next though, sometimes my mind is blank. I like to do animals and plants. Any ideas?

    Bumblebee

    Sometimes I paint a lot in, especially in the summers when I am in the summer house and there's not so much else to do. This is a Bumblebee from a couple of months ago!


    Do you create anything?

    New music from a friend!

    I have a background in music, and I still do gigs and play the saxophone at different places now and then. One of my friends and colleagues recently released the first single of his upcoming album, and I love it. Hope you do too!

    Listen on Spotify or check it out below:

    My skydiving jump

    About a month ago, I did something I always dreamed of - skydiving. Basically, I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane with a parachute, along with a pro jumper and a cameraman. Here is how it went!

    Add a background to your blog!

    Hey gang! Want to add another color, a background picture or even a video to your blog page to make it fit who you are, and to stand out more?

    Just go to the Backgrounds page under the Social Network and Blog menu in your account, and select one of the available backgrounds. You can change it at any time, to make your page a little more interesting.


    Enjoy!

    More tiny but powerful improvements!

    Hi gang! My last blog post was about how I always look for details to improve, that can make a big difference for your success in advertising. So I found lots more!

    One of them is the...

    Daily ticket drawing
    When you view ads in surf, you can collect sandwiches for me to eat. Approximately every 80 pages in surf (it varies a little not to interfere with other prize pages) you will find a prize page where you are asked to collect a sandwich.

    For each sandwich you collect by clicking the sandwich, you will have 1 ticket in the daily ticket raffle. There are 11 prizes every day:

    1 prize of 1000 site advertising credits
    10 prizes of 200 site advertising credits.


    Winners from the previous day are awarded with the bonus credits automatically. You can see the winners on the actual prize page in surf, and on the "Raffle winners yesterday" page under the Games tab.

    What did I do?
    I added links to each winners social profile and blog page on the winners page, so that whoever clicks their picture can see a bit more information about them and also their blog posts - if they have written any. But there is lots more.

    I've also added links on the Team surfing pages, Ad spotlight, Bingo winners pages, Top surfer leaderboards, top promoter leaderboard and winners, Bonus bites leaderboard and Food Fight leaderboard.

    So fill in your interests in the left side of your blog page, below your name and picture, and perhaps write a few words to introduce yourself in a blog post. Perhaps also one where you write about what you promote, and why?

    Consider that this page is available to everyone everytime you display an ad in surf, thousands of times each days on the prize page, everytime someone checks a leaderboard you are on or if you won a Bingo game. Not to mention this:

    Everyone, not just Hungry For Hits members, can search for people on the social network. They can search by first name, last name, and interests.


    So there you have it. Do you really need more reasons why you should set up your page and write a few words about yourself and what you promote?

    Always working on improvments!

    I'm always trying to find things that I can make better, easier, more helpful or simply more fun. I've found that sometimes even the smallest details means a lot, so I found a detail to update!

    Blog links in testimonials
    The main page, hungryforhits.com, as well as splashpage ID 14, display members testimonials. I have added a link to the blog page of the person who wrote each testimonial, so that whoever clicks their name can see a bit more information about them and also their blog posts - if they have written any.

    So fill in your interests in the left side of your blog page, below your name and picture, and perhaps write a few words to introduce yourself in a blog post. Perhaps also one where you write about what you promote, and why?
    You don't have to be a great writer or good at English. A few words is enough really. And don't forget to add a profile picture.

    Millions of reasons!
    Why should you do this? Well, the main page is the most viewed in Hungry For Hits. Me alone, I usually get between 3000 and 7000 hits to it from my promoting - every day. And then there is almost 13000 other members, of which a lot also promotes it. Plus the splashpage. The main page also appears high up in search engines when people google "best traffic exchange" and similar phrases.

    Do you see how much free branding and advertising you would be missing out on, if you wrote a testimonial and had a blank blog page...?

    We are not talking about thousands of hits. We are not talking about tens of thousands of hits. We are talking about millions of hits.


    You can leave a testimony here, on the "Your Testimony" page under the Account tab, if you want some free exposure!

    Free advertising and branding!

    Create anything you want!
    Did you check out the Page Creator? It's the best place for you to brand yourself as well as promote something. This is mine:

    http://hungryforhits.com/profilepage.php?id=1

    You can write about yourself, what you promote, or something else. Tell a joke, show some pictures. If you are in the chat, everyone who clicks your name will see your profile page. You can also advertise the page in surf to get more people to see it, and you can advertise it in other places. The header and banner has your referral URL, so you can get referrals both for Hungry and for whatever you promote.

    Branding is really important. People are more likely to sign up under someone they recognize, or a name that is familiar. And once they've seen you a few times, you are familiar. You can also add links to social media on the page, they will appear below your Gravatar if you fill in your usernames on the Page Creator.

    Social media and site link advertised for free
    Social media links, as well as any site you want and your Social network and blog, is also automatically displayed in the top surfbar if you fill in your Surfbar Social Links. Not everyone wants to have them on a page where they promote something, so this is separate from the Page Creator.

    When you click someone's photo in the top surfbar whenever their website displays, you are taken to their site of choice. When you click their name or username, you are taken to their blog page (like this one). All links, both the site links and social media links, open in new windows. This is an example of what it looks like if you fill in some social media links. It's just a picture of it, not the real thing, so it's not clickable:
    social links in the top surfbar at Hungry For Hits

    To fill in your information, go to the Surfbar Social Links page under the Account menu. Even if you don't want to share any social media links, you will be losing out on free advertising by not adding a site to the Blog/Site field.

    Go grab the free advertising and branding on the Page Creator and Surfbar Social Links!

    Members from your area!

    Hi everyone,

    I recently added a new detail to the splashpages in the Affiliate Toolbox, under the Promote menu. It now checks the IP address of the person who is seeing the splashpage, and it shows them how many people from their area is already members here at Hungry For Hits.

    It first checks their town, then the state, then the country and finally the contintent. If there are less than 100 people in their town, it will say how many members there are from their state. If there are less than 100 members from one state, which can be the case in a lot of smaller countries and countries with a lot of smaller states, it will show the country and so on.


    Hopefully this feature will add a bit of recognition and a sense of community for people who are interested in joining. If you want to check how many people are in your area, just check out one of the splashpages, like this one!

    My new bike!

    Hi guys!

    If you've seen me in chat last couple of days, you've probably heard me talking about getting a new bike. Due to my health condition, I can't really ride normal bikes anymore, but I love biking and I think it's a great way to get around. So what did I do? I got an electric bike! Woohoo! It's bright red with a basket in front, old lady style.


    I don't have to pedal much at all to reach 25 kilometers an hour. I did a 10 kilometer ride home from the shop, and I barely felt it at all. It was super easy, and this bike is really gonna help me get around a bit more. And my cat likes it too...!


    Really looking forward to using it this summer and doing some longer bike trips around the city.

    Do you bike?

    Mini Branders!

    So, time for a post about the second new thing! It's something we call Mini Branders. As the name suggests, it's something you can use to brand yourself, but also to advertise. 2% of the times a banner shows in surf, twice every 100 pages anyone surfs, a mini brander will appear instead. It looks like this, with 4 members pictures. Each of the members it shows, has added a mini brander ad.



    When someone clicks the mini brander, it displays all those 4 people's ads. The sweet thing is that this is not just advertised in Hungry For Hits. I advertise it pretty much everywhere I advertise with banners, so you will get free branding and free advertising from hundreds of other sites.

    However, this also means that it will take a lot of impressions. Each time your photo is shown on a Mini Brander, in Hungry For Hits or elsewhere, you will spend one Mini brander impression. I've set the conversion quite high, so you will get a lot of impressions for every credit you spend on it.

    As of now, you can win Mini brander impressions in the Bonus Bites game, the food that comes flying across the screen, and you can convert regular credits into Mini brander ad impressions. If you have impressions assigned to your mini brander, your ad will display when I promote it. If there are no active Mini brander ads, only my info ads will display.

    Sweet huh? Go to Mini Branders under the Advertising menu to add yours!

    Social links in the surfbar

    Hi guys!

    I have added a couple of new things again. The first one I am going to explain here today is the updated social information displayed with each person's ad in the top surfbar.

    You can see the person's Gravatar photo and name just like before, but now you can also see their username and their social media links, if they share them. When you click someone's photo, you are taken to their site of choice. When you click their name or username, you are taken to their blog page (like this one). All links, both the site links and social media links, open in new windows.

    To fill in your information, go to the Surfbar Social Links page under the Account menu. Even if you don't want to share any social media links, you will be losing out on free advertising by not adding a site to the Blog/Site field.

    Branding is super important, and I want to make this the best combined advertising and branding platform there is. By connecting the social network and blog with what people are advertising, and by connecting the profile pages with chat, I think we're definitely heading in the right direction.


    The social media icons take up a little more space than before, so Food Fight info has moved from the left side of the top surfbar to right below the surf icons.

    Let me know if you need any help!

    New banners!

    Hi everyone!

    I've updated the Affiliate Toolbox, under the "Promote" menu, with some new banners! There are a couple of new 728 x 90 banners, a 250 x 250 banner and a 500 x 300 banner, and there are a few more coming in the next week or so.

    Hungry For Hits free traffic exchange banner

    The Affiliate Toolbox is where you find all your referral links for the different splashpages, your profile page, your blog page and also all the banners, email templates, forum signatures and social media sharing links. When someone signs up using your referral link, they will be placed in your downline and you will earn credits from them when they surf, as well as a commission if they buy somthing.

    If you're missing some type of promo material or have any ideas - let me know and I'll add it!

    My cats: Morris

    So, after Finkel passed away this summer, little Fjodor was all alone. He would wait for him to come back and lost interest in most things. After a couple of weeks, he started getting back to normal, but it was clear he wasn't type type of cat that wants to be alone. So we started searching for a buddy that might suit him, and we found Morris.


    He's a sweet obnoxious little guy, and he fit right in. They became buddies really quick, and it only took half a day until him and Fjodor were sleeping next to eachother.

    They're playing, wrestling, hunting and being mischievous just as cats are, and Morris is a real sweetie. He wants to be carried all the time and wants cuddles while sitting next to me. He's a real thief too, steals things from my desk, from the kitchen, from the bathroom (q tips are his favourite toys) and he sleeps on my bedside table every night. And during the days, this is his preferred napping place...


    He's about 6 months old now, and he's developed quite a quirky little personality. I can't wait to see how much fun he will have in the summer when he gets to go outdoors at the summer house. No doubt, he did a great job filling Finkel's shoes, both me and Fjodor are happy.
