Guarana In My Coffee

I don’t know about you, but I am not a morning person. Every day, my alarm goes off. Every day, I hit “Snooze” at least five times. The worst parts of my day are a) the 30 second countdown before I tell myself I have to actually get out of bed, b) the approach to the bathroom, anticipating the sub-zero tiles on the bathroom floor, c) turning the shower off and d) drying my hair – the moment I apply a towel, I can feel my icy hair sapping away any remaining warmth.

I get the feeling I’m the only person that cannot bear getting out of bed. At 9am, everyone else seems cheery; I’m feeling miserable, trying to pry my eyes open. Sometimes, I even feel delirious, just trying to force myself to stay awake. So, I decided to do something about it.

This morning, I cracked open a tub of powdered Guarana, aka Paullinia cupana, a Brazilian herbal stimulant, and added a teaspoon-full to my coffee. This is one of those (seemingly rare) herbs that actually tastes nice as well as possessing psychoactive properties. Right now, at 9:51, I’m wide awake and not too bothered that it’s another 15 hours before I’m asleep once more. I’m just praying the effects won’t wear off and leave me in an unsuspecting heap on the lab floor.Powdered Guarana

One thing to look out for with Guarana is making sure you stir your coffee properly. If you don’t, the last dregs are full of powdery chunks, but it’s not the end of the world. Did I mention that this actually tastes pleasant?

Guaranine, the compound responsible for keeping my eyes open, is chemically identical to caffeine, derived from other sources, but that leaves out the plant’s other xanthine alkaloids, such as theobromine and theophylline. These stimulate the heart, among other things, so it definitely gets you going.

If Guarana really is this good, I think I’ll be using it every day. My quality of life has just increased dramatically!.

Good News From Google

…For me, anyway! This quarter’s toolbar PageRank update has been a good one.

Coffeesh0p has gone from 2 to 3, with all my main categories having a PageRank of at least 1
Salvia Trip has gone from 0 to 2
A-muscaria & P-viridis have both gone from 0 to 1

PageRank

For those that don’t know what PageRank is, it is one of many metrics that Google uses to rate your site, and is generally determined by the links to your site from other pages. If one page has a high PageRank itself and links out to only a few other sites, more of that “Link Juice” is going to flow down each of those links. If a page has a low, or non-existant PageRank and links to many sites, those links won’t pass as much juice. It’s these links to your site, or backlinks, as they’re known in the industry, that govern where you appear in Google’s search results. Relevent sites, with high PageRank that link back to your own site can really provide you with a boost in rankings.

Remember, PageRank is only one factor that Google uses when thinking about your site. As a general rule, pages with a higher PageRank should be more trustworthey than those without. Having little or no PageRank is a good indictor that a site is new, or doesn’t get a lot of traffic. You can see the PageRank of any site you visit by installing the Google Toolbar..

First Day

The first day back at university and the first day owning a blog! Hello, everyone, and welcome.

About Me

I’ve just started my 3rd year at university, studying medical science, with a particular emphasis on pharmacology. I also run Coffeesh0p with my girlfriend – we sell all sorts of stuff, working from home. I’ve always got little sideline projects on the go, too, so never a dull moment.

About This Blog

I’ve set this blog up for many reasons. Firstly, it seemed like it might be fun. Secondly, I thought the stuff I do is really interesting, so perhaps others might like to read about it. It will also provide me a much more casual opportunity to talk to a public audience than through the more business-orientated Coffeesh0p.

So, I’ll be posting on all sorts of things, mainly on drugs and Internet marketing, and my unique position where I can combine the two.

Right now, I’m currently learning how to use WordPress – I’m not quite sure how all this blogging stuff works yet. I guess the first step is make it look half decent. I’ve already found myself a nice green theme, and added my own header and a massive RSS button (please subscribe!), but there’s a lot more to do!

That’s all for now. Another day at university tomorrow, and hopefully some more developments here!.
