?We think this is a fantastic way to support some families who desperately need all of our help! Be charitable?and then dance by putting your booty on the floor,? writes Celebrity Blogging Icon Perez Hilton in an article endorsing the new single from Marc Mysterio and Flo Rida to benefit One Fund Boston.
“Booty On The Floor” was released exclusively on Beatport this week and other respected outlets such as the Boston Herald, Miami Herald and NBC Affiliates across the country have similarly reported on the release.
?God Bless the families affected by the Boston Marathon Explosion, I’m praying for you all,? Flo Rida added via Twitter.
All net proceeds from the Beatport Release will go to the families affected by the Tragic April 15th Marathon Attack in Boston via One Fund Boston.
?Perez Hilton is a class act for supporting the charitable effort and I respect him for that? notes Marc Mysterio, who has previously been featured on Perezhilton.com numerous times.
The tune?s refrain, ‘Put your Booty on the Floor’ (sampled from Flo Rida ?Respirator? courtesy of Atlantic Records) is accompanied by a melodic arpeggio piano riff and a massive electro lead.
??Put Your Booty On The Floor? is a paraphrased way to say ?Call to action? and ?get in gear? which honors the heroes that gave everything on the dime to help the wounded,? notes Marc Mysterio, a multi-platinum performing artist of global repute on various labels, including Sony Music, who grew up in Boston.
A video featuring Bangkok-Based Viral Tutting Star Billy Chuchat and artwork from Boston-Based Jonathan Beckley for the dance-floor smasm is viewable on Perez Hilton?s Site:

Covert Store Builder – a new WordPress theme developed by Soren Jordansen, John Merrick & Cindy Battye who are known collectively as the IM Wealth Builders has just been released to the public. The theme, which creates viral affiliate stores is creating a buzz of excitement throughout the online marketing community prompting an investigative review from HonestyFirstReviews.com’s Tiffany Hendricks.
“With E-commerce now far exceeding one trillion dollars in annual revenue, many webmasters and online marketers are eager to get their slice of the pie,” reports Hendricks. “Most large online retailers like Amazon have affiliate programs, making it very simple to get started in this industry, however that said, designing an effective E-commerce website can prove challenging for even the most seasoned web professionals. There are several other E-commerce WordPress themes on the market, but the ones we have reviewed in the past have lacked the functionality necessary to manage a high volume online store, so we were anxious to take a look at the new Covert Store Builder to see if this was something worth recommending to our website visitors.”
Hendricks’ Covert Store Builder review explains that the theme offers users a host of features to help users maximize the value of their website’s traffic including a so called “self optimizing” feature. This technology first tracks impressions and clicks for every product listed on one’s website and then automatically displays the best selling products at the top of the page.
“While optimizing one’s website for conversions is key to boosting sales, the tasks necessary in order to optimize effectively can be difficult and frustrating to implement,” says Hendricks. “Because self optimizing features are built right into the Covert Store Builder theme it has a strong appeal to webmasters not wishing to run their own complex split-tests, or purchase third party tracking software. Additional highlights discussed in our review such as the theme’s wish-list functionality, viral sharing capabilities, and full auto-responder integration further enhance Covert Store Builder’s desirability among E-commerce website owners.”
The Covert Store Builder is currently being offered with a multi-site license at no additional cost. In addition customers receive a step-by-step set up guide, video tutorials, and a “help-file” with explanations of all of the theme’s settings and functions.
