Let’s take a wild ride in the blogosphere again and rant a little about the Amex links and the clusterphuck system this space is involved in, learn about fuel surcharges, wonder if we should be switching loyalty (for those who fly enough I guess), travel to India Pakistan border, Iceland, North Korea and to South America and end the ride with rejection letters to famous people and a history of financial crises.
TBB Blog Mission: To Entertain. Educate. Inspire. In That Order
Isn’t it amazing now with many bloggers losing their Chase and Amex credit card links they are discovering other credit cards suddenly! I read some of this crap and I shake my head. You don’t fall for these sales jobs! And isn’t it sad that Amex has pretty much rewarded the mega blog pumping machines by letting them keep their Amex affiliate links while several bloggers who are doing it right get canned? Well, life is not fair sometimes. Don’t be a sell out. And don’t be a Tool!

My real job (thank God I don’t have to be pumping credit cards for a living!) is doing better than ever. Which means less time available to spend with TBB. I keep finding ways to say no to prospective clients but is getting harder. Maybe it will get to a point where TBB will go to its next evolution #mystery #nobuzzonlyweeklyrant? #havenoidea #wishmeluck #needtoallowmoretimefortravelNOTlessdamnit 🙂
And I leave you to ponder about this…
