If you don’t laugh reading this you have some serious issues, you probably suck the life out of every party you go to so please leave my site pronto And don’t miss the comments who also really get into the spirit of the post…Thank you Jared for the laughs, much appreciated. You keep this up and you may make it into my “Blogs I Like” list!
Insane Bulgarian Communist Monuments – Size Really Did Matter. By Yomadic. Words do not begin to describe…okay, the pictures begin. Must click too! To fellow travel bloggers (who are really financial product sales people): THIS is how you do travel related blog posts. Not stuff like: there was a table of cakes and pastries, bad picture of the table with cakes and pastries, caption says lots of cakes and pastries.
View from the Wing had another one of his Open blog posts titled “What’s On Your Mind?” just asking for feedback to get ideas for future blogs posts. Not much to see actually, I just like to share with you comment #19 by Nelson Goldberg: “I’m disgusted by all the additives, preservatives, and gluten in things today. Let’s put an end to artificial insemination by starting a new company that does natural insemination only.” Hahahahahahahahahaaha. Let’s get Nelson to start commenting here, looks like he belongs!
Chase sent me a new Ink Plus already! Everything in my accounts appears fine and Hilton Honors continues its investigation. Must have been a fluke.
Travelblawg wrote “Courts On Blogging: Tax Write Offs, First Amendment” which should be of special interest to fellow bloggers. He reviews two recent court decisions:
In the first one the Tax Court disallowed some alleged business deductions. The guy tried to deduct $19k with NO revenue, that is ridiculous! My two most recent tax returns will have mostly deductions for the TBB venture (pun intended) and pretty much no revenue which is not going to cut it dear readers, therefore my entirely shameful recent moves to pimp a Support TBB page with some referral links that at the current pace may be enough to cover the revenue derived by just one credit card app by the end of the year!
In the second case, the Court pretty much reaffirmed again the First Amendment protections are allowed for bloggers. Actually, I loved this a lot more than the first case (which was nothing new to me, I know a few things around taxes myself ). I reproduce here the last paragraph which is hugely important imho:
The Takeway: Putting bloggers on the same level as “traditional media” by a federal court of appeals is huge for freedom of speech rights in online speech and for building on the foundation of the still young medium of online content and transmission of information. The added hurdle of requiring a defamation plaintiff to show an online author had actual knowledge that the published content was false at time of posting builds a greater burden on the plaintiff to seek any damages, rather than on the defendant who would affirmatively defend it. Remember: The truth (in a blog) will set you free.

Taking in Some Greenery: Strange Photos of People Standing in Trees. By Dashburst. These are strange indeed!
Fearless Goats on Cliffs. By Bored Panda. Incredible photographs of goats you look at and wonder how in the world they managed to get to where they are standing! I am Greek, what can I say, goats have a special place in our hearts lol.
I added Capital One 360 and Starwood SPG 5k Referral links in the glorious Support TBB page (see link at the very top, just did not feel right to hit you with another one in the same post!). Feel free to please
