ON MY MIND
The World Cup qualifying game USA vs Costa Rica in a ferocious snowstorm was just an amazing site to see. I can not believe the game was played to the end! Heroic win 1-0 for USA. Earlier yesterday, Bosnia handed Greece a punishing loss 3-1. I was planning to be in Brazil for the World Cup in 2014. I am not so sure now…
Looks like Mrs. TBB has accepted a job offer and joining one of the Big Three car companies. And she is still getting paid from her former employer until mid June. #winning This will delay the introduction of the best affiliate links lol.
Some of the giveaways fellow bloggers do are a bit ridiculous. I only enter a contest if it will make a meaningful difference in my life. And of course only if it requires no talent whatsovever! And it is almost always a one-time entry. Daraius, I am sorry I will let someone else win that packet of incense 🙂
I appreciate all the comments and do try to get to all of them. But sometimes I may not due to time constraints. But of course I do read every single one!
Daraius come on! Your Million Mile Secrets Friday interviews were supposed to be of “where renowned mile and point gurus share their insights”. Mark of The Travel Playbook is a nice kid who tries hard but he has a lot to learn about this game! Hey Mark, you may want to get a different credit card of the month as the Virgin America card application link (!!!!) is dead! Mark, you are welcome for the additional hits:-)
Delta is driving me insane. It is not bad enough that they now take away Skymiles from widows and children afte burying their loved ones, they shamefully attempt to spin this positively! Unbelievable. At this USA Today piece Delta’s spokesman says “We are the only airline whose miles do not expire, so our customers have the ability to enjoy using miles without the risk of ever losing them,” she said.”We are proud to have that policy, because it affects every SkyMiles member. In order to offer this unique benefit, some other, lesser-used policies were examined and determined not to have as much value to our members.”
I never liked the term travel hacking.
The Travel Writing Advice You Don’t Want to Hear. From Alexis Grant. Well, it is no secret really. You are not going to make a living in this, not many are Jason Steeles types:-) So you can hammer trip reports all you want, noone is paying you anything decent. Or, light bulb moment, you can morph into a renowned miles/points guru, dispense advice veterans have known since the 90s and push the s**t out of them affiliate links. Then you pay a small fee for original content while you enjoy your massage in a first class lounge somewhere while your staff back in your high end apartment….keeps pushing them links:-) Rinse and repeat.
