At a blogger conference with crazy schedule and horrible wifi with my new laptop, so I am running a day or two behind. I aim to catch up. I apologize for being late. Doing my best. I know this cost me some conversions lol.
8 of the Most Lavish Hotel Suites. This is where TBB usually stays with his entourage buahahhaahahahhaha
If you can’t be a real pilot, you can fly the next big thing. In Los Angeles, you can now Fly the Dream, a new virtual entertainment store where you can fly an F-16 Falcon. Not cheap but it looks like so much fun! Reservations required. How about a trip report from a simulated flight here, anyone?
Tamas Dezso Photos of Romania’s Industrial Decay. Stunningly depressing pictures. Up your Ceausescu, rot in hell!
How to do Credit Card App-O-Rama. By Saverocity. Very solid blog post, very useful for newbies. Only negative is that the absence of disclosure that the Barclays card is an affiliate link. In the grand scheme of what we see every day here at TBB, it is not much to worry about and the content is as solid as I would have written about this. But I am too busy reviewing blog posts for me to write such posts; I just wait for bloggers and then hit them upside the head with my
incendiary entertaining commentary

When Social Media Blows You Away. By Just Another Points Traveler. It talks about the power of social media. As most of you know, I love Twitter. I started using it more than three years ago professionally and then I added my FlyerTalkerinA2 account. A few times I made a comment about my hotel room after check in and I received a phone call from the front desk offering to help me be satisfied with my stay, wow! I have won two major prizes: A trip to London on Virgin Atlantic (see trip report) and a fully paid Star Mega Do 2 trip! Here is a picture of the SMD gang on the ground inside Boeing’s factory:
How to track hotel prices over various dates (for The Big Win etc). By Head for Points. How did I ever miss this? And this is why this hobby can be so much fun, the knowledge you can learn is just super VAST and you ALWAYS are learning something new, the education NEVER stops!
ON MY MIND
As you all know, I am attending a financial blogger conference and the internet connection in my laptop is just super slow. I think there is something wrong with my new Lenovo laptop. Anyways, it is an outsanding conference and learning SO much about blogging. There was one session about WordPress that just blew me away. If I had attended it before I started blogging I would have saved SO many hours of fumbling around! Sadly, the list of plugins and other to do items has also significantly expanded. I have no idea how these big bloggers do it. Oh wait, I know how, they can afford to pay experts to do all these technical tasks! I focus on the content and keeping everything together. And yes I learned some things about monetizing but skipping all the sessions about “how I went from $2k to $700k in three months”, smh. Apparently, this guy Pat Flynn blogger about creating passive income streams is a really BIG deal among this crowd. I had never heard of him before…when I say this everyone looks at me like I am an alien!
I have many observations. I gotta tell you that 99.5% of this crowd just does not get what we do. They hear credit cards and their eyes glaze over!
I need to publish this post and go on to the next session. I have met many new people and have seen many old friends who did not know what I do at night
ODDZ & ENDZ
This “Fantasy Bra” from Victoria’s Secrets costs just $10 million dollars! I hope they take credit cards, lol.

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! I repeat, this is about the blogs, not the bloggers!
Frugal Travel Guy (the blog) is asking readers to sign up for not one but two services: Score Big and the new FTG product called Wallet. Exsqueeze me but I will pass, I watch my wallet! Let me rephrase this..what I mean is “Hell NO”. Instead of going around developing new products how about improving the content of the blog? About to get ranty…so I take a deep breath…and move on! Out of all names…Wallet? Wallet? Smh.
Milevalue: “Dear Mashable Readers” And the slide continues. Coincidentally, I bet my credibility that this blog never made as much money as now.
