TBB Mission: To Entertain, Educate and Inspire. Aim to at least do one well!
This blog has been a labor of love so far. If you like what you see here, please let others know by passing them a link to my blog, thank you!
Did you miss my blog post on “Mileage junkie! Diversify Your Portfolio! 2 great blog posts about the blogging business” a day ago? It has been the one with the highest number of page views!

A repeat of the two blog posts featured here over the weekend.
Professional Blogging Reality Check. By Saverocity. Another must read. After reading it I feel like running out of gas after I complete one year of blogging. Maybe get into personal finance blogging and enhance my real life brand rather than fighting an up hill battle in a hobby going revenue based soon. I will miss you guys Actually, I intend to find out more next week at the financial blogger conference and make some decisions about where TBB goes from here. Unless you can guarantee me $3k to $5k per month to keep my links buhahahahahahahahahahahaha
The Rich Get Richer: Smaller Blogs Can’t Compete on Credit Card Affiliate Links. By Travel Summary. Must read in my opinion. Wow. This industry could use some transparency!
ON MY MIND
I have been having fun on Twitter dropping hints about the deal I discovered. I am shocked (well, not really anymore) how many emails/tweets/DMs/texts I have gotten about this asking me to reveal it or keep dropping hints. I am sorry everyone, I can not get back to you all, I need to hire a secretary to keep up! So, if you did not get a reply from me, please do not hold it against me. I read it but just got a super busy week ahead of me with the conference starting on Thursday! And I have a doubleheader soccer game on Monday night with the top team first followed with the third team right afters (we are in second place going into the doubleheader). I would like to speak to the scheduler for setting us up like this!

- Time is too short to do your own laundry.
- People are tired of you being the funny, drunk guy.
- Never stay out after midnight three nights in a row … unless something really good comes up on the third night.
- Ignore the boos. They usually come from the cheap seats.
- Hookers aren’t cool, and remember, the free ones are a lot more expensive.
Note: This section is intended for long time readers and miles/points addicts who follow the blogs in this space. Readers not familiar with this crazy hobby could skip this section! Do not take anything personal. TBB reviews blogs and tries to entertain above all. Call me Siskel. Furthermore, a link appearing in this section is TBB approved! The rest are just TBB crap; don’t take them too seriously, it’s mostly entertainment! You feel hurt the entertainment is on you? Well, excuse moi, perhaps you should try to earn the link if you are so sensitive with what appears in your blog, no one is stopping you!
Another Friday, another interview at Million Mile Secrets. “I’m a relative newbie to the miles and points game. I started collecting in September of 201…”. They keep coming…and coming…Shaking my head. Added one more to Feedly. I need help.
OMG, the Chase Ink card pumping at Points, Miles and Martinis is reaching amazing heights lately, wow! Pump it with patios (at Sears), Shutterfly, Kohls and Ebates. Yes folks, all these were separate blog posts. Next up? Plastics!
