    Be Prepared…Backup Your Blogger Blog

    I had wondered if such a critter existed and it does.  I got the brainy idea after Jenny Matlock left a comment on my Saturday post Ignorance? Blind-Trust? or Stupidity? She mentioned getting something via email on how to back up your blogger account.  What a cool revelation, right?  I quickly Googled ‘how to backup blogger’ and this link popped up….How to back up your blogger blog.

    Right now, Ebates has a cool new promo going on. I can earn up to $40 when 4 new friends join and make their first qualifying purchase through Ebates. Isn’t that wild? It works, too.

    What’s In Your Wallet?

    Credit card fraud and identity thief are in the news often.  It certainly is an alarming concern for most of us, since plastic is the popular form for making purchases.  But, don’t be mistaken, I’m not only referring to credit cards.  Debit cards can pose the same risk factor.
