What happens when the blogosphere goes wild and the great link up of all link ups is announced?
You either A) hop on in and think how this is going to be the best.linkup.EVER or B) read the post several times that explains the link up and fret about if you really should join in 'cuz whose really gonna want to read from you seven days straight any way.
I chose B and then waited until this morning to sign up for the link up and just jump in with both feet. Or, both hands as is the case.
It's not that I don't think it's going to be awesome to read from so many of you each and every day, it's the feeling that I may lack the material for you to enjoy reading from me each and every day this week.
Oh well, why not give it a try? So,with trepidation, I'm in for the week and you're stuck reading (or not reading if you wish) from me every day from today through next Sunday.
Are you ready?
I've decided to start the blogging week with Mindless Monday.
Yes, something that is a bit of a fluff post, but if you are like me (please tell me you are) Monday is a fluff kind of day. Don't you agree?
It seems that no matter what kind of spin I put on Monday and no matter how fun I dress it, Monday is just kind of a downer and crazy. I'm finding that it doesn't matter how prepared I am, whether school is in session or it's summer time, Monday whirls and swirls.
Alrighty, so here's the fluff. And evidence that while I am quite busy, I still find time for silly things that give me way to much satisfaction for their small worth.
My new leisure time/click as I pass the computer activity: Swagbucks!
Do you do Swagbucks? Oh no, you don't? Well, you should/could.
(Insert shameless referral plug here) Hint: you can click on my link in the sidebar and I'll earn some credit if you do sign up and use it.
While I've been using Swagbucks for several years, I've been revamping my game and turning it up a notch for the last year or more. Recently, I've been doing even more. Why, you may ask?
One word: CHRISTMAS.
Currently, I'm working each day to accumulate swag to redeem for gift cards. I'll be able to get gift cards for my favorite places like Amazon, Walmart and Target to help out with our Christmas gift giving. Will this cover all of our Christmas? Certainly not, but it's really going to help us out.
How do I earn? Well, I mostly earn doing searches, clicking/watching videos (movie trailers, etc) and taking advantage of special offers Swagbucks posts. They even have daily goals set for you and if you reach them, they accrue through the month and you get bonus swagbucks. Sounds nice, huh?
Of course, the more you do, the more you earn. While Swagbucks isn't always flawless or ideal, it is pretty easy and my SIL and I are admittedly
slightly addicted a little obsessed about it.
Do you use Swagbucks? What is your favorite way to earn?
And that, my friends, is Mindless Monday. That wasn't too painful and it was quite mindless.
See, I told you this week was going to be epic, didn't I?
