Making extra money

I will admit it – we are credit card junkies, although we have gotten better about how many cards we carry balances on.  But at the same time, I always find myself trying to figure out ways to make a little extra money on the side so we can start paying down those vicious balances […]

That makes me sad

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days.  Just didn’t have the posting itch. Anyway.  What kind of crazy state makes a law where in order to hold a contest, you have to register it with the AG’s office?  Seriously?  Oh yeah, the one where I live. Even if the host of the contest is in a […]

Thank goodness for Akismet

It’s been catching quite a bit of spam. Inappropriate spam.  And if you post inappropriate comments, then you know who you are. How do you like the spam purgatory?  It sure isn’t lonely there, you’ve got company for sure.  Enjoy your stay! 

I am so ticked off right now

I have changed the theme to match my other site, which works. Identical themes. Both with several errors when run thru the W3 Validator, yet the other site works, and this one does not. The only differences are the content and widgets. I even tested a theory and added a supposed missing closing div tag. […]

Tag – you’re it!

So I have been tagged by Irene at Happy Healthy Families.  I’m supposed to share some things about myself that I haven’t mentioned here before.  This should be interesting since I can’t remember half of the stuff I’ve written about without going back to read it. LOL  So we’ll see how this works.   I […]

Another award – thank you!

Sorry I’m late with the thanks, girls. Thanks to Jacqueline @ Mom to Three Sisters and Emily at Mama and Hustler??? for the award. I’ll have to search for the next recipients for it later this weekend.

When leaving comments…

Just a quick FYI – when you leave comments and have multiple URL’s you want to leave, or any URL for that matter, within the comments (instead of linked to your name by the software), don’t forget to set them up so they convert to a URL with the HTML code:   <a href=”http://www.thisisyoursite.com/”>Visit my […]

A disappointing end to my weekend

There is a paid posting company that I was patiently waiting to sign up for, and up until this week their ToS said the minimum requirements for “blog age” was 30 days and 10 posts.  I was excited when I realized my blog was old enough to apply, and I sent in my application on […]

200 clicks and finding my niche

I think I’m all clicked out today.  I was slacking on my Entrecard clicks the last few days, so today I decided to make up for it.  I hit 200.  I know it’s not the max, but I think that’s the most I’ve done so far. It took the better part of my day since […]

Thinking about setting some goals

Over the weekend I came across a site that led me to pick up another domain and set up a couple more blogs, to try a different avenue to earn some extra money, hopefully, once things get rolling on the blogs.  One blog will be a review site for video games on all consoles, hopefully […]
