Weather and Surfing the Net

Hey ya'll! I'm sitting here looking at a beautiful day, the sun is shining, the sky is clear, the temp is 58° F, we have a slight breeze to go along with all this. We have had weeks of cloudy, partly cloudy or hazy days, very unusual for my area. Between the low to no sun days and the thick layer of dust that has been on my solar panels, I haven't had a full charge on my batteries in weeks. I should have gone up on the roof and dusted the solar panels, but PB has had the ladder on the other side of the sky castle doing work over there, the ladder is bigger than I want to handle, yeah I know, I'm being a wimp. Anyhoo, I chose not to try to move the ladder so the panels haven't been cleaned in quite some time. Fortunately we finally got a good rain last week, it's the first precip in over 100 days, we really needed it, it rained all night, that rain cleaned my solar panels for me, so as of right now, the batteries have a full charge, yeah!!!!!

I love surfing the internet, so you might wonder what websites and blog I read, here is a short list of what I look at everyday, or most everyday:
Of course the first thing I check is my email, though Gmail.com, the other pages that automatically open at the same time are http://www.blogger.com/home,
Google Adsense account (I recommend this if you have a blog, it doesn't make a lot of money, but every little bit helps), http://statcounter.com (this is how I know how many people visit my blogs),
and http://www.off-grid.net/, this is the other site I write for.

I also check the 2 social networking sites, Facebook and RTR, the second one is a conservative social networking site.

Next I work on earning money, I use a couple of Pay to Click sites, I used to belong to about 40 of them, but have narrowed my selections down to the few that actually have something for me to click on everyday, and those that actually pay, I've been paid by each of these companies multiple times.
Wordlinx
Clicksense (This one is the only one I will pay to upgrade, it's worth the money because they have soooo many more clicks for upgraded members)
Hits4pay (this one gives you $10 just to sign up)
Dealsncash (this one gives you $5 to sign up)

I also check on my Amazon.com affiliate page, I use the credit I receive from you, my wonderful readers clicking on the Amazon.com links and buying stuff (it doesn't have to be the stuff from the links either, anything you buy after clicking on a link, I get credit for) I use that credit to purchace things I need and want from Amazon, thanks so much for everyone who has clicked and purchased, every little bit helps! Right now I'm saving my Amazon.com credits to buy a Yamaha YPG-235 76-key Portable Grand Graded-Action USB Keyboard so I can play piano at church.

I check the blogs I read, I don't read every blog everyday, I check though Blogger to see who has written something and if it catches my eye, then I click on the page and read. This is in no particular order the order according to who I follow on Blogger, and I'm sure I missed some, so don't feel bad if yours isn't listed, I'm also not putting down each and every one I follow, just the ones I read most often:
I can't believe that list is so long, I have lots more than I follow, but don't read as often. If you have a blog or site that you think I might be interested in, please post it in your comment.

  5. Thanks Lounge Daddy, I enjoy reading your articles, just keep posting the type of articles you have been posting and I'll keep reading... I don't know about how strong I am, quite frankly I think it much scarier to live in the cities, at the mercy of TPTB and the utility companies. :)

  6. Your blog is always so full of info. I love the list of blogs you follow and what they write about. I'd love to read some of them as well. Now if only there were lots more hours in a day and why is is that our human bodies need soooo much sleep. Wish mine didn't.
    thanks for coming over and visiting my blog again.

  11. CheyAnne, love your artwork! If you want to buy anything from Amazon.com, if you want me to get credit, then come to my blog first, click on ANY Amazon.com link, that will take you to Amazon.com, now you can buy anything on Amazon.com and I'll get the credit for that sale, I only get credit for sales, not clicks, thanks in advance!

    Yes, I am TreasureGift.

    Nope, you're not buggy at all, LOL!

    SciFiChick, of course I added you, I love reading your stuff, and thanks for being a long time follower/reader. :)
