New Trends In Vaping

Vaping is still very much a new trend, and very much changing almost by the day. Our friends at ecigwizard.com tell us that there are tons of new things happening in the industry by the day, and it’s a welcome challenge for them to stay on top of them. Here are some things to look for:

Cloud Chasing Goes Worldwide:

Cloud chasing started in the USA a while back, but it’s starting to go global now. Competitions with prize money are even starting to pop up all over this wide world of ours. Vape tricks are reportedly also on the rise everywhere.

For those of you who are potentially interested in taking up cloud chasing, here is a good place to start.

Custom Vape Kits On The Rise:

This ties right in with the rising popularity of cloud chasing. To really do well as a cloud chaser, you need to get the right gear for it. The most important factor considered for building a vape kit for competitive vaping is getting the coils to give the least resistance feasibly possible.

Of couse, in general, you can customize your vape kit for other things than trying to compete with it. There are tons of possibilities out there.

Increased Regulation:

This is one of the more unfortunate trends, although naturally your mileage may widely vary depending on exactly where on the Earth you happen to be at the moment of your vaping.

The good news is vaping is completely legal almost everywhere in the world still, and there may well be a backlash in some countries, because a lot of those laws were implemented in a very hasty and haphazard way without analyzing the data.

We here can’t fathom why regular cigarettes, which really are noxious and have the potential to degrade the quality of life for people around them, would be legal in not most but ALL of the jurisdictions where vaping has been banned. Between cigarettes and newer cleaner safer less obtrusive technology, the answer should be clear.

Do you have any experience with a custom vaping kit? Are you a competitive vapor, or plan to become one in the near future? Do you live anywhere where there are legal issues affecting your ability to vape? We would love to hear from you below in the comments section. Feel free to drop us a line and speak your mind.

Selecting Your E-Juice

Most of us who vape love it, and are obsessed with it. Specifically, we are obsessed with finding the best e-juice possible. This is true whether it we are looking for your traditional tobacco e-juice or some other variety.

Of course, these days, the market is huge and there are a whole bunch of people producing juices of various different qualities, with different standards, most of them making dubious claims as to how good their juices really are. So how are we to sort this mess out? There must be some kind of objective criteria we can apply to the process of selecting our e-juice, right? Fear not, there definitely are, and we are going to walk you through them.

Ingredient Lists

By law, you should be able to easily have access to the ingredient list of an e-liquid. In most jurisdictions, in fact, the ingredient list is required to be clearly listed on the product label itself.

So what are we looking for? Honestly, it’s not that much different than any other product of this nature, or for that matter, any packaged food or drink. Shorter ingredient lists are generally better. And you want to specifically look out for certain ingredients that are often in e-liquids and aren’t super good for your health. We are talking about things like ethelene glycol (which is used as antifreeze and is actually toxic), and its cousines diethelene glycol and propylene glycol, which are all very similar in their nature. None of these substances are really fit for human consumption, but for various reasons sometimes they are snuck into e-juices.

Also to be avoided are acetone and its various related acetyl-like substances such as acetoin, acroleine, diacetyl, etc. Many of you will get it off the bat; acetone is commonly used as nail polish remover. That’s not something you want to be deeply breathing in like that!

The best is if the manufacturer has a proper lab report handy backing up the fact that their products contain only the best ingredients and are free from these sorts of chemicals.

General Quality Issues

We talked about what should not be in your e-juice, now let’s talk about what goes in there.

Assuming it’s a tobacco-based juice, the quality of the tobacco is super important, meaning how it is grown, harvested and cured. And if it’s not, or in some cases of flavored tobacco e-juices, it will probably contain some sort of an essential oil. These should be of the highest grade possible, and should be considered potable. These are of course the most expensive ingredients, but these are your lungs we are talking about here!

Beyond this, one should consider the batch size. Of course, here, smaller is always better.

These few factors will invariably determine the quality of your next vaping experience; this is why we think it’s so important for proper attention to be provided to them.

Time To Sell Your Car?

Cars can become like security blankets to us at times. We get so used to them we tend to forget what kind of condition they are in these days. And this is a perception bias that can carry on right up till the point where we are sitting on a desolate highway in who knows what kind of weather waiting for a tow truck and cursing to ourselves!

Selling your car might feel like pulling out teeth for some, but it doesn’t have to be that difficult. There is help online to get you started on your way and close that final deal smoothly, and get decent money for that old bucket you keep dragging around the streets.

You should definitely know the book value of your used car.  Keep in mind that your car may easily be worth more or less than this average value based on many details. What kind of conditions does the car drive in on a regular basis? What weather has the car been through? How hard have you driven it? Try to analyze and be fair and realistic about the expectations you have regarding the car’s price.

This may come as a surprise to some, but in general, you are way better off taking your car and putting it up online to sell and not taking it straight to a dealer to trade. Obviously, there is a certain ease to just taking the old car in, and driving off in the new one, but this convenience usually comes at a high cost to you. Sell it here and get what it’s actually worth, and Uber it to get your car, or go with someone else, or both. You may have people trying to talk you down online, but in general people are much more amenable to paying a decent price for your car than dealerships, who need to always be thinking about margins and stuff.

Don’t be afraid to make some repairs to your car. The fact that it was recently done by you can often make a big difference in a car’s sale price. Of course, don’t go crazy and replace decent parts with perfect ones or anything, but at the very least, don’t forego routine maintenance like oil changes and brake pads etc. just because you’re selling the vehicle. These are actually key talking points for making a good sale and keeping that sale price at or near where you want it.

Ways to Increase Your Baby Fund

When you become a parent, there is a lot that comes your way in terms of expenses and other upkeep costs that in somehow hinder you from saving up for your baby’s future. There is the doctor’s expenses, food, baby gear, diaper expenses among so many other things that may prevent you from saving up. But on top of all this, it is salient for you to find ways to ensure that you have this fund because it ideally acts as a safety net for your baby for future purposes. So here are some of the extra part times you can do to increase the baby fund.

Online Trading

One of the ways through which you could possibly increase your baby fund is by investing and engaging in online trading.

Start a Free Amazon Associate Account

Amazon has an affiliate program that enables just about anyone who is interested in registering and earning a commission once someone purchases something from Amazon using the special link that they give you. In most cases, you stand a chance to earn a commission of up to 8% of the cost of the commodity on Amazon, however; it also depends on the category that the commodity is in.

Freelance Writing for Blogs

Bloggers are always in search of new content and sometimes it may get very overwhelming to do by themselves. As such, they are always constantly in search of people who can help write content on their blog and pay them between 25 and 45 dollars per article of 2000 words. The beauty about this part time is that you do not really have to be an expert because you will get guidance on the topic to research on from the blog author.

Start a Blog

Blogs have a potential of earning you quite a bit of money especially if you put in the hard work that it requires at the end of the day. You can get some funds by guest blogging on a site of your choice. If you are at it, you can still write for travel blogs on the various destinations of your choice.

Be a Virtual Assistant

One of the other things that you can be sure to make extra cash from is by being a virtual assistant. This often entails doing tasks such as reading through the email inbox and responding to people, posting articles on the employer’s site as well as scheduling the employer’s travel plans if need be. The beauty of being a virtual assistant is that you can work whenever you like at the comfort of your couch and earn anything from $8 to $20 per hour.

Arbitrage for Amazon FBA

This is a cool way for moms who love spree shopping or those who observe the price of items carefully at stores. You can earn huge bucks from this just by visiting the local stores and hitting the clearance section, buying a shopping cart full of items and then mail it to the Amazon FBA. What Amazon then does is sell the items for you and emails them to you and then pays you your share of the amount.

Get Freelance Editorial Work

If you feel that you are not up to the commitment of blogging but still want to be able to express your creativity, then you can be an editor for media, corporate and nonprofit websites that are looking for freelancers to write, edit and produce their content.

Saving up and getting an extra part time may not be the easiest of things to do but having a clear picture of why you are doing it in the first place helps put things in perspective. As your baby becomes of age, they will have the safety net they need to cover their future expenses.
