What is the best bank to open an account in Sri Lanka

Opening a bank account is easy , but finding the best bank to open a bank account in Sri Lanka is pretty hard. Each and everyone of them have there advantages as well as disadvantages. There are many things to consider as well , the interest rates , limit of loans , internet banking , mobile banking and ofcoures all the bonuses that they provide. In the end I decided to go for Sampath Professional , the cool thing about that account is you can specify an amount that goes to another account and as soon as that account reach Rs.25000 they create a fixed deposit. Now that is a good way to save some money because the bank does all the work in creating a fixe deposit. Another factor was Sampath bank was the one closest to our office as well :) .

Why its not a good idea to quit drinking suddenly

Admitting you have a problem is the first step of solving a problem. Although I wouldn't call myself a drunk I do have a tendency to get carried away a bit in parties :) . Friends recommended I took professionla help , but with the internet around I was sure I would be able to find some nice articles to get over my drinking problems. After all there are plenty of alcoholics out there. Word of caution though , if you are a heavy drinker who drinks regularly stopping suddenly can have some unwanted effects and you should be on the lookout for common alcohol withdrawal symptoms. If you are light drinker who tends to get carried away in parties there are plenty of articles out there to help you get through it. And the best method of them all is to avoid going to drinking parties :)

How to make money online

One thing I love doing and don't get tired doing is making money online , The problem with most Sri Lankans is instead of building a blog or niche website or something like that which really makes money online they tend to go for reading e-mails , filling surveys etc. Making money online can be broken down into three very basic steps. Build a website or find a product to promote , bring traffic to that blog or website and then monetize that blog or website. Building and monetizing are easy , getting traffic is the hard part. Getting search engine traffic is much harder than that. I found this great article which explains all the basics or making money online and also lists some great resources to get back links. So check this article about Earn Money Online. You are bound to learn something.

Make Money Online in Sri Lanka

My squidoo page about Make money online in Sri Lanka is at the top of the search results for the term make money online in Sri Lanka. That is pretty good but after changing the blog title of one of my other blogs about make money blogging from "Rumbling Lankan" to "Make Money Blogging - Rumbling Lankan" I found that some of the old posts that were totally not relevant to making money online have come up the search results for that term. If you Google for that search term you will see that some of my old posts about our APICTA win and blogging in Sinhala are right up there in the first page. Although not totally relevant one thing I learned from this is the power of your blog title plays in your search engine results. So if your blog title doesn't have the keywords you are targetting now is a good time to add them. Check out my hub about making money online in Sri Lanka as well.
