|An uncertain future is no longer the strict provenance of the newly minted college grad. If two recent films are any indication , the thirtysomething woman, faced with the sudden loss of her man and jobsocial function, is in just as precarious a position. First For a Good Time Call鈥?mined pre-middle-age anxieties through a female protagonist who鈥檚 dumped by her boyfriend and laid off from her job, achieving empowerment and financial success by running a phone-sex business. That film was more or less a straight comedy, but it wasn鈥檛 very funny, and it swallowed its insights into its lead character鈥檚 situation in a world of strict fantasy.

Hello I Must Be Going is also a comedy , albeit a far more restrained one. More importantly, Todd Louiso鈥檚 film presents a believably nuanced picture of thirtysomething uncertainty and the tensions of family life. Mostly it鈥檚 able to do so because the uncertain woman in question, Amy, is played by Melanie Lynskey, who not only nails the mopiness of her character鈥檚 depression, but also the little ticks of behavior that signal both the character鈥檚 resignation and her increasing willingness to try to work her way out of her situation. Forced to move back to her parents鈥?luxe Connecticut home for an indefinite stay after her divorce from a hotshot lawyer , Amy wallows in despondency before beginning an affair with Jeremy (Christopher Abbott), the 19-year-old step son of her lawyer father鈥檚 would-be client.

This latter tendency is on display in a memorable scene in which Amy鈥檚 father invites over the would-be client and his family for dinner and Melanie alternates between withdrawal and dismissal of the obviously vulgar man and playing nice for her beloved father鈥檚 (John Rubinstein) benefit. Complicating the picture are the condescending dismissals of her mother (Blythe Danner), who routinely belittles her daughter, and the presence of Jeremy, who chafes under the strictures of his free-spirited mother, whose selfish , if good natured, attempts to shape his life are no less oppressive than Amy鈥檚 own filial burden.
Before long, Amy and Jeremy are having an affair and working out their feelings on life and love together. While Amy learns to reject her former role as privileged appendage to a successful husband, Jeremy reveals his dislike of acting and the fact that his mother believes he鈥檚 gay, assumptions he doesn鈥檛 want to challenge for fear of disappointing her. (In the case of his pretended queerness, Jeremy explains , his mother gets off on being accepting.) If the chemistry seems somewhat nonexistent between the two lovers, and their talk of getting serious rings slightly false, then their sessions together remain valuable for the modest insights they reveal about defining one鈥檚 own life as opposed to allowing others (husbands, mothers) to do it for them.
In the end, the conclusions the film reaches are a tad pat, and the expected showdown between mom and daughter a little too one-sided in dictating our sympathies , but thanks to Lynskey鈥檚 performance, the movie feels like a believably worked-out, sympathetically presented study in thirtysomething uncertainty. And that鈥檚 an achievement that no amount of ugly, monochrome, shallow-focus compositions and twee folk rock can efface.
If you own a website or a blog, you want traffic. More traffic means more exposure and more popularity. And , if you’re trying to use your website to sell products, more traffic means more clicks and more money. You can’t sell unless a lot of people know what you have to offer.
So you can understand why many Internet marketers and bloggers spend so much time trying to get more traffic. One technique that’s still being used today is the link exchange, where two webmasters add a link to each other’s website on their page. While a link exchange isn’t as effective for placing in the search engines as it’s used to be, it can still be a valuable way to feed traffic to your site.
There are hundreds of websites that regulate link exchanges between webmasters. Go ahead and Google “link exchange“Feel free to reel a bit. After you sign up with these sites, they point out websites related to your niche that you might be interested in exchanging with. They also handle the exchanging process and make sure both sites set up a link to each other. (It’s all too easy to promise someone to set up a link to their site and never deliver.) You can consider submitting your website to websites such as ALE5 link exchange and reciprocal link exchange.
Of course, a link exchange strategy often focuses around signing up for a lot of these websites , and few people do that by hand. Instead, they rely on link exchange software to automate and manage their link campaign. You’ll find loads of link exchange software if you Google that as well. Besides software, you can also set up scripts on your website using PHP. This can allow a webmaster to, for example, fill out a form with his link, and the script can automatically add his link to your site as soon as the webmaster adds yours on his end.

Link exchanging does have its share of problems. First off, many links offered in these link exchange programs are poor quality. If you don’t manually check these sites out-which can eat a lot of time-then linking to a poor site will only serve to hamper your credibility. Furthermore, it’s very easy to automate the whole process and generates tons of links, sending out emails to practically any interested party. Not only will a mindless email strategy draw Google’s ire, but without checking the sites you request links from, you’ll probably come off like a spammer anyway. After all , if you just fire off an e.
