How to delete your tsū account

After 25 days in tsū, sadly I must bid farewell. Today, they claimed to have reached over 1,000,000 users/members in a span of one month - which may be faster than any of the other social networks. But for those of us who have found that it's just not 'them', here's how to delete, deactivate or close your tsū account. This tutorial is valid as of Nov. 21, 2014.
  1. Click over the tsū FAQs (https://www.tsu.co/settings/faq
  2. Search or CTRL + F the word 'delete account' 
  3. Expand the item entitled:

  4. How do I delete my account? We're sorry to see you go! You can delete your tsu account by clicking here. This action is permanent: deleted accounts cannot be restored and the funds in your wallet will be distributed back to the community.

  5. Click on the 'clicking here' link. (https://www.tsu.co/settings/soft-delete/[your user number])



  6. Enter your password. Click the 'Delete My Account' button.


Blind Faith

Sometimes, when the winds carry the echoes of breaths made years before, I ponder. What things were like becomes a visual delight for us who are in the present. How places smelled, how people talked, what music played and what sounds touched their ears grant us a peek to an alternative reality that's similar in some breadth, but different than that which we are facing.

But these winds from the past carry with them nightmares about harsh realities that force us to ask,

"What if?"

The Blogger Who Sold His Soul


"How much is your soul worth?" the man in the dark asked.

The blogger laughed as the glint from the screen shone on his spectacles. Bright reflections glimmered as a parade of video, images and text filled the glasses of the blogger.

There was only silence.

"Wait, what? You serious...?" the smirking blogger said as he opened another tab on his browser. "Awww, ha ha ha. If you're going to give me the silent treatment, might as well give you an answer - a million bucks. There. Cold, hard and paid through Paypal. Boy I never saw any of that before. Might be fun to Photoshop a million bucks on my Paypal account. Ha, ha, ha!"

He laughed louder.

Silence.

"Don't forget escrow!" the blogger laughed in a shrill voice as the man in the dark barely uttered a sound.

"Done." said the man suddenly as he stepped backward - back into nothingness.

"Sell my soul. Oh ho ho ho ha ha. Like yeah, that e-bay kid. Ahahaha. Wonder where he is now?" said the blogger to himself as he took a puff off his electric cigarette.

"Sell my soul." he chuckled.

Add SiteMaps to GoDaddy SiteBuilder v. 7

Google Webmaster Tools needs you to upload your Sitemap to your GoDaddy Sitebuilder so that its search engine can crawl your website better. Then you need to point GWT to the xml or html file from your domain. Here's how to do it.

1. If you are using GoDaddy SiteBuilder (Website Tonight) version 7 and have already published your page, you already have it. *Surprise! Yeah, me too.


A Look into GoDaddy's Sitebuilder 7


I had to go around Google just to find free sitemap generators when all along, it was already there. I just had to type "sitemap.xml" on Google Webmaster Tools.

My new website's sitemap, farmphilippines.com is here.
