The one man blog machine TBB with yet another COVID-19 Coronavirus special post for you with the ten best links I have found on the subject. I am also announcing a reduction in the number of posts every week to last through the whole month of April. Because it is time as with the viral times we are all experiencing support clicks have gone way down and I need to make sure I could achieve the goal of making half of minimum wage here, sad LOL #facepalm.
TBB Blog Mission: To Educate. Entertain. Inspire. In That Order!
Support TBB by applying for CREDIT CARDS and visiting our LINKS!
You like my blog? Send a link to someone please!
Brought to you by the amazing TBB Amazon link! This blog is published every Monday and Friday. For now…
HOT CREDIT CARD OFFERS: There is an offer for the United Explorer card offering 60,000 miles. The IHG Rewards Club card offering 140k points too, highest ever. In addition, there are personal and business offers for the 70k Amex Delta Skymiles Gold, 100k Platinum and 100k Reserve credit cards. For a standard workhorse card I recommend the 60k Chase Sapphire Preferred card. For a standard premium card I recommend the 50k Chase Sapphire Reserve card. For a standard 2% cash back card I recommend the Citi Double Cash card. Available with my links. Lets move on!
Breaking: It appears a whole bunch of credit cards have vanished from affiliate links. Chase business credit cards gone! Bank of America cards gone too. Including at The Points Guy! I think you won’t be seeing any posts there why the Chase Ink Business Preferred 100k card is amazing anymore LOL. Sadly, it appears a lot of them are gone in my site too. Ouch. If you need advice on what card to get you can always email me or ask in the comments. If you see any card you want to apply with my links of course I would appreciate it if you use them, thank you!
Breaking #2: It is true! Credit Card Issuers Suspending Affiliate Programs. It is strange all posts about credit cards that no longer pay a commission have vanished from credit card sales blogs! Will my site even get five going forward? Sad lol.
In the month of April TBB will be posting twice a week. Every Monday and Friday. And this time I will stick to it. For a month!
Starting in May, the posting schedule will be dependent on the number of credit card conversions with my links found here. Mi familia is still the best customer here lol. Comments will stay open, please be civil.
Going forward, I am thinking to post based on the following number of conversions per month:
Five or less: Post once a week, every F
6-10: Post twice a week, M and F
10-15:Post three times a week, MWF
16-20: Post four times a week, MWFS
21-25: Post five times a week: MTWFS
26-30: Post six times a week: MTWTFS
Over 31: LOL
Saturdays will always be a day off unless the LOL happens.
As a reminder, many hours go into this blog and translating that into pay per hours is approaching prisoner type pay. Amazon is under three digits every month. Two readers donate by Paypal every month. The biggest revenue generator are the credit card conversions. There has never been a DIRECT credit card affiliate link here. I have been doing this for 7.5 years. I have outlasted numerous bloggers. With the covid-19 changes I need to spend less time here. It is sad just leaving you, quitting I mean. I am no quitter. Please support independent voices in the blogosphere. Before we quit. Or some of us go work at The Points Guy. Without your support most blogs just do not last. I am shocked I have lasted this long. I am in peace with this decision.
If no conversions the whole month, I am joining Mile Nerd posting once a month.
And now lets get you some Covid-19 links that are worthy:
I still can not believe Trump fans are giving this guy any excuses with the body count mounting and knowing that the worst may be ahead of us, WTF! The missing six weeks: how Trump failed the biggest test of his life.
You will see this dilemma be raised more and more in this viral era: The rise of the bio-surveillance state.
So countries are faced with what one might call the “coronavirus trilemma”. They can pick two of three things but cannot have them all: limit deaths, gradually lift lockdowns, or uphold cherished civil liberties. Not all countries are facing up to this reality – the US remains a notable laggard – but most will have to eventually. Those countries that have recognised the choices before them are picking the first two options at the cost of the third, bio-surveillance. It is a choice that has most clearly been made in east Asia. But it is coming to much of the rest of the world too – and will transform the role and reach of the state.
This is a great presentation about the The Economics of a Pandemic: The Case of COVID-19. Many slides. At least look at slide 92. And tells me who is responsible for dropping the ball here!
This is a great video interviewing a doctor in New York City. Title of the video is “Protecting Your Family From COVID-19 by Dr. David Price“. Great explanations and in the second half of the video he responds to audience questions. I am now a hand Nazi for sure! At the same time, would this disease spread so fast if it was only spread the way he describes? There must be more going on…like in the air? My gut feeling, I am no scientist. My most hated subject in school was biology, nothing came close!
I am starting to become a mask fan lately the more I read about this topic: You Probably Should Be Wearing a Mask If You Can. I predict at some point we will be using them here as much as they use them in Asia.
I don’t think we have seen this before. Global Shutdown: Visualizing Commuter Activity in the World’s Cities.
Remember Wait But Why? It used to be a great blog and then it suddenly turned into an Elon Musk fan blog and then silence. And then a post every once in many months. They are back again with a fiction post about, what else, the virus. You Won’t Believe My Morning. You may have nightmares after you read it, you have been warned!
When this is all over, we should see a really good investment towards Public Health! Lets get a historical perspective on the Major Epidemics of the Modern Era.
You may want to sit down if you decide to read this: First Denial, Then Fear: Covid-19 Patients in Their Own Words. OMG!
Lets finish with something positive. Some Good News With John Krasinski. Of The Office broadcasting from his home.
And I leave you with this…
