|Mr.Pickles in Cyprus? Blogging and its effects on aging are evident:-)
And what is it with all the rumors about all the dollar coins he hoarded? Is he in Cyprus
to help bail out its banks? Or is it because he is planning to…News out soon!
MVP POST OF THE DAY
Warning: The 5 Dangers of Applying for Credit Cards. From Million Mile Secrets. Not said often enough! Must be required reading by all newbies. In all seminars it should be in a packet handed out labeled “Newbie FAQs” or something like that. I did chuckle when I read this “Keep a budget and stick to it.” Like eat your fruits and veggies?…Only if it was so easy lol. And banks feast on them!
ON MY MIND
I have read so many trip reports by Ben of One Mile at a Time that I must admit they are all starting to look the same now. I find them so…cold. No people ever in it. Maybe I am just over trip reported I guess.
I was so tired I took a nap inside my car at the parking lot of my gym:-)
Darn Mercedes, takes premium gas!
Major issue fixed at tenant’s house today. Positive: Club Carlson minimum spend was met in one transaction! Officially no minimum spending requirements in process right now. Time to focus on go to cards…
I was so busy I did not run Award Wallet once all day, boo!
I still use Autoslash. My car rental in Las Vegas in May was booked for $203. It has dropped three times already and is now at $151. And still two months away from it! It is with Payless. Hey, it’s cheap and it is a rental around Vegas, works for me!

MY RESPONSE ABOUT MONETIZING:
This was posted in a response to other comments yesterday:
Obviously, this topic is controversial. I have been trying to keep it real here, pouring my soul out to you guys. In addition, watch what I do and not what I say as I tend to keep making fun of things in general, it’s in my blood. Like I said many times, I embarked on this journey last November because I was bored. I needed a challege in my life. I just crossed 45 and had it too easy in the past several years cruising along. I do not need the money and have not given serious thought to monetizing the site. I have no time to make an About Me page and you guys are jumping all over me for keep mentioning affiliate cards which I have not even looked into at all as I find the subject entirely confusing and feels like selling out to the devil. Seeing the Flight Deal going that route sure made an impact at me. I admire the bloggers who have resisted the very lucrative option and they will always have a priority here in my site.
I also admire how Frequent Miler (yes BA sure helps!) and MMS are monetizing. I guess there is a way of doing it and being able to see yourself in the mirror. The key point is they are both full timers. I have no intention of making this a full time endeavour, I like my real job enough. But this has been a passion of mine for many years so I wanted to have a voice and this is what I am doing.
One day I will think of monetizing in a humane decent way when I get around to it. At this pace that will likely be…never:-)
My two cents, thank you for reading and taking the time to comment.
