WHAT’S ON MY MIND
I am getting my butt kicked. I need to cut something out of my life to keep it all together. What would it be? It will not be the gym visit every day. Maybe my @FlyerTalkerinA2 account? #developing
The era of free agency has begun. I am now a lowly Sivler after a long run of Platinum/Gold Elite on Delta. I feel good about it. I have evolved. From nobody to elite slut allergic to economy class to…realizing I am a normal human being and coach won’t kill me . Besides…the cost to achieve elite status with less capacity, higher prices, less competition, continued devaluations, revenue based enhancements, fees up the wazoo, ridiculous award availability, etc…it was time.
I need to lay lower until April 15th…but I just can’t let go. TBB has become my crack…Is there a 12 step program for blogging addicts?
I checked my Alexa rankings. Low 900k in the world and 120k in US. What do these mean? Can a blogger do a newbie tutorial on Alexa rankings and the possibilities. Or, lets cut to the chase, when will BentOffers come knocking on my door begging me to sign up, lol.
Comment of the Month:
Great, my 3yo now wants to fly AirAsia because it looks like a Fire Truck!
You blogger can count your revenue from the affiliate credit card links, cha ching. I read the comment above and smile…Priceless!
Frequent Miler has an innovative series of posts about “Million Mile Madness” in the month of March. It sure makes great content and of course I will be reading. Notice how he does not take advantage of attacking your eye sockets with affiliate links! Having said that, I am not sure I like to encourage everyone to do these things, such as applying for 11 credit cards in one day. I know he can handle it, I can handle it, most of my readers can handle it. But LOTS of people can’t even handle one credit card…they should never be encouraged/tempted to do anything like this. Yes it is a “fun and foolish” quest but it could be a very destructive quest for some. THAT is my own philosophical “issue” about this.
You can follow @HiltonDishonors on Twitter. Purpose of account is obvious!
Very interesting infographic by Tnooz on Inflight Entertainment.
It appears that you now can search for Alitalia flights on Delta dot bomb. When you find one be prepared to cost you an arm and two legs.
More details are slowly coming out on the AA-US merger. From the Airline Biz Blog
ODDZ & ENDZ
Dennis Rodman goes to North Korea and call Kims “Great Leaders”. WTF Dennis!!
Angry Surge & Swell taunted me about my boring content so I replied:
Really? I can point you to a gazillion blogs right now that are big time snooze fests! They all revolve around content like: Southwest cards are the best, Companion Pass is the best thing since sliced bread, I just got 7% dividend in Sapphire Preferred did u get yours?, the Ink cards give 5 pts at office supply stores woohoo, the BA card is going away tomorrow & if u don’t get yours u are a freaking idiot, u can apply for the quarterly Freedom bonuses here & while at it here are a gazillion cards to be helpful to you, the US Air card is awesome here is my affiliate link it is the exact same one like so many other bloggers, here is my churning challenge let me just pull up some numbers out of thin air & copy/paste some affiliate links for you depending on what’s for sale lately, here is a giveaway for a luggage tag or drink coupon, I started collecting miles/points in 2011 & starting this blog to help my friends/family to travel free LOL, I had no idea what Platinum or Diamond is but now that I got my elite cards I feel entitled to publish a bunch of crap & flood my readers with affiliate links every chance I get, and I can go on forever. The vast majority of blogs in existence would not exist if it was not for blatant pimping of credit cards and you know it.
Deep down, for you to post here it means you are reading me. Thank you for your support;-)
Then I followed up with another comment:
I am ok with Amazon referral links. I am not ok with plastered all over credit card links. Debt can bury unsuspecting newbies before they realize what hit them. THAT, to me at least, is THE difference.
Credit cards are to consumers what derivatives were to banks (we bailed them out remember?)..Weapons of Mass Destruction!
