Health Insurance Quotes: Your One Stop Guide to the Health Insurance System

I remember one time I got a job. After the meeting with HR I felt great about the health insurance plan and all the various options. Then I realized I almost never go to the doctor and regret every time I’ve had to go. It’s usually not under the best of circumstances that one visits a health care physician. But health insurance is important. It’s for those times when we’re most vulnerable. We’re sick, hurt, or otherwise stricken with malaise and malady. And in times such as those we need the assistance of trained professionals.

The health care system in the US can be complicated. There are many options all of which seem confusing. And once you finally select one, it’s even more complicated to figure out which doctor you can visit and when. And if that weren’t enough perhaps you need special services such as X-rays or some other test. In this case you’ll have to wade through all the coverage options, ins and out of network specialists, co-pays, deductibles, and a large variety of options. It can be dizzying. Hence I try as best I can to stick to the don’t get hurt or sick policy.

But sorting through the many options in health care needn’t be so challenging. In fact sometimes all we need is the guidance of a trusted counselor or resource to help us out. That resource comes to us in the form of Health Insurance Quotes, a new site to help US citizens find the health insurance they need.

But how do you know which plan is best? How can we tell what to value and what isn’t as important? That’s where Health Insurance Quotes site comes in. It’s a resource full of articles and location specific information that can help guide us through the process. It contains general health insurance guides, state specific guides, company ratings for the major providers, and articles on common topics.

WomenWeb: An All-Inclusive site for the Modern Female Lifestyle

Twenty-one years ago, John Gray published the seminal book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,” arguing that – brace yourselves – the sexes are different and that couples must acknowledge and accept these differences before they can develop happier relationships.  So now you tell me!

Well, now comes data further confirming Gray’s theory.  Specifically, it’s becoming abundantly clear that men and women use the Internet differently.  According to a recent survey by the Pew Research group, women have been significantly more likely to use social networking sites than men since 2009. In December 2012, 71% of women were users of social networking sites, compared with 62% of men.

Furthermore, women use the Internet to communicate, find recreational activities, and solicit recommendations more than men.  But there’s just one problem.  There still isn’t one site that ties all of this together.  Facebook is, well, Facebook.  Women have flocked to Pinterest, but it’s not a great place to, say, get feedback from other women on a specific product.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with this, except that in the real world, jumping from site to site can get a bit time-consuming, if not downright annoying.  The fact is that the typical woman’s online experience is segmented across multiple sites.  Until now.

WomenWeb Profile

WomenWeb is an all-encompassing, social media-friendly site that enables women to organize their lives both online and offline.

When you visit WomenWeb, you’ll immediately see a bunch of interesting and compelling content, including “Editor’s Choices” as well as a News Feed, while the right hand side of the page shows your Activity Wall.  Of course, the only way to truly experience WomenWeb is to register, which is precisely what I did (posing as a man.  Want to be fully objective here.)

After entering my gender, date of birth, and city, I selected three interests: arts, movies, and stories.  I also had the option of uploading a photo.  All of this information populates your dashboard/home page.  From there you can find friends on Facebook, post a Status update, and upload more photos.  In this sense it greatly resembles a social media site in its own right.

But again, WomenWeb is far more than just a social media site.  Take its wealth of women-oriented content, for example.  The top navigation bar includes Entertainment, Food & Beverages, Fashion & Style, Lifestyles & Interests, Travel & Leisure, Sex & Relationship, and Social Life & News.  Click on any of these pages, and you’ll get a wealth of cool content, which you can share, comment on, and discuss with other users.  Again, this is great stuff, because if we are to believe the research that’s coming out, women are particularly amenable to interesting, actionable content.  And until now, no site has truly acknowledged this reality.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  Future iterations include horoscopes, Foursquare maps, chat rooms by interests, and more.  Again, everything a woman needs for an end-to-end online experience, all in one place.

Ongoing research suggests that women are the vanguard of the Internet, particularly social media.  At the same time, the social media world is evolving.  For example, we learned a few days ago that 61 percent of Facebook users are taking breaks that are “several weeks” long, and that virtually all age groups are decreasing their time on the social media site.  Perhaps you’re one of them.  This seems to suggest that people – especially women – are looking for something different, a new destination that’s more inclusive and attuned to their interests, goals, and dreams.  For women in particular, WomenWeb may just be the place.

SocialLink: Complete Social Connection

I won’t forget the day. I met a girl. I liked her, she liked me. I thought to myself, don’t mess this one up, don’t mess this one up. I messed it up. At the end of our lengthy conversation I said, “Can we be friends on Facebook?” She took it as the ultimate affront and turned her back on me, never to look back since. On a different, better day, I was spending some time with someone else. I was feeling out where things were with a mutual friend of ours. I wondered if there might be some interest. She said to me, “Oh, I added him on LinkedIn, not Facebook.” Relieved I said, “OK.”

What is this madness we’ve gotten ourselves into? I can just as well talk to someone on Facebook as I can Twitter, or LinkedIn. But they mean different things in different contexts. And so in one situation adding someone on Facebook is too close for comfort, in the next it’s taken as a rejection. In all cases though, social networking intimately affects our deepest relationships.

SocialLink Home

Into this oft chaotic and misunderstood social networking world, comes SocialLink. It’s the glue that holds our social networking worlds together. It’s simple really. Download it for free, sign into your social network accounts, and then add friends to your favorite social networks as you see fit. You have two options for adding friends. The first is for hip, liked minded people who are already in the know and have SocialLink installed. In this case you can send them a direct link. The next is the email option where you send them a regular friend request by email.

The possibilities here are endless. Let’s say you meet someone and are really into them. If the connection’s mutual you can just go for it and send them a full dose of all your social links. Or let’s say you’ve been getting to know someone for a while and are ready to move to the next step. You can start with Instagram and Twitter and work your way up to Facebook. If along the way you decide they’re a better professional contact you can add them to LinkedIn instead. As an aside, I’m going to take this time to promote my philosophy on dating and Facebook. Wait three months to announce your relationships. It makes things so much easier. For those looking for further social networking advice you can learn everything you need to know in this SouthPark episode.

Social networks offer us the means to connect with people in ways that were never available before. These powerful tools have rekindled relationships, reconnected long lost friends, and given all of us a way to keep track of those that mean the most to us. SocialLink makes it easier than ever to manage these relationships across the various social networks and their perceived social contexts. They give us the tools, it’s up to us to learn how and when to use them. As for me, I’ve since taken to the Go for the phone number, not the Facebook policy. For those taking notes here’s what to say, “Can I get your phone number?” It’s amazing how well that one works.
