IBM Developer Cloud
"Although IT departments play a crucial role in nearly every aspect of revenue-generating operations—from processing transactions and generating business intelligence to developing, customizing and maintaining software—all too often they’re viewed as cost centers. The time has come to change that. IBM CloudBurst* 2.1 jump-starts IT departments into the world of cloud computing, enabling them to flexibly allocate resources in minutes, maximize utilization, minimize system-management time and speed the deployment of new revenue-generating operations."

In today’s era when new inventions are launched each day, it’s quite difficult to get noticed and gain the attention of potential investors. Moreover, even if you manage to get investors, you have to make sure to protect your idea or invention by patenting it. Those who do not know what a patent is, it is basically a legal document that allows the owners or inventors to legally prevent their invention ideas from being copied or exploited by other individuals.
However, patenting a product or an idea is a complex process, and there’s no guarantee that it will be patented by the respective authority. The good news is that there’s a firm called “InventHelp” that has helped thousands of inventors gain investors and patents through their referral service for their unique inventions. InventHelp has made its corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for over thirty years. They have a team of researchers, illustrators, writers, and customer service representatives who can assist inventors in submitting their invention idea or new product to industry.
According to InventHelp’s spokesperson: “InventHelp's job is to try to submit clients' inventions or new product ideas to industry in an effort to obtain a good-faith review and also to review any interest expressed. You may choose to apply for a US patent and simultaneously attempt to present your idea to companies. Many inventors select this option of using InventHelp's submission program in conjunction with our invention patent referrals. If you prefer to locate legal counsel on your own, you may still use InventHelp's submission program. Inventors who have already obtained patents for their inventions can also use our services to attempt to submit to industry.”
In a nutshell, they can guide you throughout the whole process, right from how to patent an idea to manufacture a prototype of your product.

Do you have a blog focused on parenting? Are you wondering how to transform your blog from a hobby into a real business? Read on for advice that will help you succeed.
1. Take It Seriously
If you want to make money from your blog, you need to view it as a business. If you see it that way, and you talk about it that way, other people will follow suit. If you get an offer for direct advertising, incorporate it on your site. Don't apologize for wanting to be successful.
If a company contacts you and asks you for advice, get a consulting fee. A blogger was recently in communication with Disney and received $6000 to participate in a meeting, answer a survey and respond to a couple of emails. Be ready for opportunities like that; get a PayPal account set up so that you can receive money going forward.
2. Determine Your Limits
Heather Armstrong is basically the leader of all mom bloggers. She writes interesting pieces that are funny and intriguing. She doesn't really have a filter, however; there is nothing that is off limits, and she lets her readers know about personal moments that happen with her family. She also incorporates profanity into her posts.
You need to be comfortable with your content. There is no hard and fast rule that says you need to be like Heather Armstrong in order to be successful. However, as a mom blogger, you probably need to be fairly open with your readers. Think about what is right for you. Set limits for yourself and stick to them, so that you feel good about what you are doing with your blog.
3. Become A Member Of ProBlogger
It is a good idea to join ProBlogger and to periodically read the posts. Of course, the information is meant for professional. However, you will find information that can help you on your blogging journey. Take a look at the information and figure out how to apply the advice to your own situation.
4. Learn About Advertising
It is up to you to figure out how you want to handle ads. Look into the best placement and determine how many you want to have. Remember to have enough followers on your social media accounts too – it can make a big difference. Also, direct advertising is something you need to think about as well.
5. Make Connections
You want your blog to make money. That means you have to get people to your site, so that advertisers will want to work with you. While having excellent content is crucial, it is not the only piece of the puzzle. You have to network as well if you want to get impressive traffic to your site.
How do you do this? Begin by commenting on different blogs within your niche. In addition, reach out to bloggers that have sites like yours and ask them if you can submit a guest post. You'll find new followers that way, so it is certainly worth the time and effort involved.
In addition, social media platforms are important in this process. Twitter, for example, can help you get attention for your blog. Don't forget about Facebook, either. Look into other sites as well, like Instagram and Pinterest.
6. Write What You Love
Your readers are important, and you should think about them when you are posting new content. However, that doesn't mean you should deviate from the topics that you love and that you find interesting. Be entertaining. Bring out emotions in other people. You don't always have to provide factual information in your posts. You don't always have to give other people tips and tricks on parenting. Simply making a connection with people is often enough.
7. Be Proud Of What You Do
There is nothing wrong with earning money as a result of your blog. You should be proud of what you are doing. You are a good writer, other people find you interesting, and you've put a lot of time and energy into creating the connections necessary to succeed. There is no reason to apologize for making money while doing something that you love. Check out Don Mills Diva's post entitled "Show Me The Money." It is a great read.
8. Don't Overdo It
It is not easy to get your blog up and running, much less to turn it into a success. If you are committed to this process, you don't want to wear yourself out in the very beginning. You may find yourself consumed with your site; however, you need to set limits in order to find the right balance. Remember, your family needs you to and you should enjoy them. The Internet should not take you away from what is really important. It's work, but it is not your entire life.
