ON MY MIND
Wife’s new personal Club Carlson Visa card finally arrived!
The usual suspect bloggers are back on their regular routine and the endless Chase affiliate credit card links. I did notice a decrease in such posts so I would like to help them snap out of it, maybe this guy can help you visually assault us some more, come on! The record is 39 links in one post, do not give up, you can do iiiiiiit!
Blog hit the highest number of views yesterday: 1,742. This explains the increase in spam!
Seth of The Wandering Aramean is up to…another venture with his Hack.Travel website. This was the original goal of TBB: To be the go to site where I post the best and the worst blog posts from the previous day. The hobby has grown so much that such a site is needed. There are some other websites doing this now. But, as I have had a first hand experience with this, the volume is so punishing that I could not keep up the pace and continue my family and work life! So TBB morphed into an “eclectic journey of the Travel Miles/Points blogoshpere”. Maybe Seth can apply some of his incredible tech knowledge to do this right. With so many blogs there is no way in hell anyone can keep up. Even with Google Reader (or Feedly soon) it is a very time consuming
job hobby! I think I am going to stick with my “eclectic” angle to keep my sanity:-)
Ok, Bluebird BIG news! Gary of View from the Wing has the scoop here. Free checks. FDIC insurance. The only thing missing is an increase in the Vanilla Reload monthly $5k limit. I would be fine with $10k because a pig is fine while a hog is not:-)
Mr. Pickles is on a major blogging run. After revealing an Avis amazing rental car code he gets Bobby to guest blog again on how to get a free domestic flight on a Delta award. I also heard that the Avis code made it to slickdeals…which pretty much guarantees its death in…minutes!
Priority Club is rebranding and Loyalty Traveler has the best writeup on it.
Need to do more of it! But then how am I going to update the blog, I am barely keeping up with it? Hmm…
