Super Surf Sunday Bonus

Super Surf Bonus is a fantastic new feature that lets members earn even more hits while surfing. The way this works is the winner takes an X percentage of all the hits generated by the other surfers in the competition. As people surf they see the value of the prize increases which grows even more as they surf. For example:

Lets say there are 10 people in the competition. The top prize winner will receive X percentage of the sum total of all the credits earned by the 9 people below him. And the second prize winner will receive credits from the 8 people below him and so on and so forth. It's like having a built-in downline of 10 people surfing for you. How much you win depends entirely on how much you and your competition surf.

On October 28, the winning percentage will be 50% and the number of people who will receive the super surf bonus is the Top 5. So, start surfing. You have about 14 hours to really add up some credits.

If you haven't already registered at Trafficwell.com, please register and you will automatically receive 200 credits.

Have fun! Check my blog on Monday morning for a complete list of the super surf winners. http://moneylinkz.blogspot.com

Transform Your Hobby Into Your Profession

If a hobby is a spare-time recreational pursuit, could you count the number of hobbies you have practiced in the past? Are the ones that you are still pursuing the giving you some kind of return apart from the psychological one? If you can identify even one, then you probably already know all there is to know about the pleasure of having a hobby as a profession. But if your hobby list is empty, or you are unsure if one of the things that you are doing or have done during your free time could be categorized as a hobby and turned into a profession, then you should invest some time in reading the text that follows.

First of all, you should know that hobbies are practiced due to a person's interest in something and for the enjoyment that hobby can bring to the individual, rather than for financial reward that can result from the outcome of someone's efforts. Whether you are a collector, a crafter, a sports fanatic, or a painter, engaging in a hobby can lead you to acquiring a certain set of skills and advance substantially your capabilities, knowledge-base and experiences. But remember that these outcomes are directly related to the personal fulfillment a person receives from practicing the hobby of his or her choice.

Second, you are probably familiar with the phrase that says "The person that has turned his hobby into his profession is a happy one." It is true that for a number of reasons, more and more people have turned their hobby or hobbies into their daily occupations and those that have done so, state that this decision has dramatically changed their life towards the better. They advise others to do the same and they do have a point, if one considers that the person who uses his or her skills to earn a living actually practices something he or she loves doing. For example, if you have been receiving compliments for your cooking or pastry skills, from a variety of people, perhaps you should consider a career in that field. If you love computers and you spend every single minute experimenting in computer languages or playing computer games, then maybe a career of that sort could fit better your type. But generally speaking, a person who does something for fun and not remuneration is called an amateur or a hobbyist, as distinct from a professional.

But finally, in order to determine which hobbies you practice could become your future career paths, you should better examine how easy it is to make a living from your leisure and recreational activities. For example, very few people can live from stamp collection, but many find it enjoyable. A lot of people like to observe and study the stars, but few have actually invested in this hobby and became astronomers. But a number of people who enjoyed traveling and writing have become journalists, or others who preferred cooking rather than dining out have turned their passion into a flourishing business venture. Regardless if others find your hobby trivial or boring, you should invest some time in examining whether it has been ever introduced as a type of career. Even if not, do not get discouraged. People always find new ways to explore their entrepreneurship and business usually evolve just based on an idea. If you add on this equation talent, skill, and determination, you most probably have a winner. Whether you are an amateur writer or a painter, give it a shot and who knows? Maybe the next Hemingway or Picasso is you!

Update from SunEGrl

Well, I did my mystery shop last night at Shells Seafood in New Smyrna Beach. I have only been there a couple of times usually when my parents are in town, so this was a real treat. This was a bar and dining room shop so I had to order the works. We ordered a fabulous strawberry coconut pina colada in the bar and then had a fabulous dinner in the dining room. It was so yummy, it's hard to believe that I actually make money doing this. :)

Mystery Shops

I just love doing mystery shops! I have one scheduled tonight at one of my favorite restaurants in New Smyrna Beach. I can take one of my friends and spend up to $65.00 including drinks. Granted that's not very good for my diet, but it is a seafood restaurant so surely I can find something that is relatively low carb.

I work so much at the hotel, that I rarely have time for mystery shops so the last one that I did was the one where I got my new glasses, so I'm really looking forward to doing this one. I applied for one the other day for Hickory Farms, but they gave it to someone else. I was a little bummed about that, but maybe next time.

Til next time....

Last night I made a decision to help a child

Last night, I made the decision that it was time for me to help a child. I had been thinking about this for awhile, ever since I heard about it on the Bob and Sheri show but I didn't really think that I could afford it. Every year, I buy gifts for a child through the Angel Tree program but this is quite a bit different. I am committed to helping this child by giving her the some of things that she needs to live a healthy happy life. These children are badly in need of medical care, food, education assistance and much more.. I encourage all of you to look deep into your heart and see what you can give. If you can't give $30 a month, you can give the gift of a sheep or other farm animal that can be used as a constant food source for as little as $75. This is what your donation can do:

Your Child Sponsorship Donation Saves Lives~ There are two types of sponsorships:

Child Sponsorship and HopeChild Sponsorship

World Vision's child sponsorship program changes lives! Sponsor a child today.

Clean Water
Nutritious Food
Health Care
Educational Opportunities
Spiritual Nurture

World Vision's HopeChild sponsorship program changes lives! Sponsor a HopeChild today.

Weekend Recap

Well, I just got home from my weekend trip to Melbourne Florida. I went with three of my good friends to celebrate the Libra birthdays. It was a very nice, relaxing trip that consisted mainly of eating, drinking, and laying out at the pool. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Oceanfront Resort, and it was a nice hotel but definitely not what I'm used to when I think of Crowne Plaza because it is considerably older and had exterior entrances. I did get an employee rate of $59, so it was still a great value. We had dinner at a sushi restaurant and then a couple of drinks at a little beachside bar. It was nice to get away, but even nicer to come back. Oh well, it's back to reality tomorrow.

This is a serious post about something that should be important to all of us.

Please take a few minutes and read the letter regarding the brutal torture and murder of Shanda Sharer back in 1992. This happened in my hometown of Madison, Indiana and it is appalling to me that this girl might actually get out of prison. Please sign the petition to keep Melinda Loveless in prison for the remainder of her sentence.

12 year old Shanda Sharer was brutally tortured and murdered in January of 1992. Indiana has dubbed this the most brutal crime in it's history and the criminals a group of teenage girls led by Melinda Loveless.

Loveless is scheduled to appear before a Jefferson Circuit Court in two weeks. Her attorney, Mark Small, will argue that her sentencing rights were violated and that her legal representation was lacking in her original trial.

In January of 1993 Loveless was sentenced to 60 years in prison for her crimes Tackett with seven additional crimes, including child molesting, criminal deviant conduct and felony murder.

Loveless was not supposed to be eligible for parole until the year 2022 but is against Shanda which included murder, arson, battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, criminal confinement, and intimidation. He charged Loveless and trying every legal maneuver to gain her freedom. She has never shown remorse or shame for her crimes against Shanda.

Let's make it clear that we, the American public, is tired of the early releases of dangerous criminals and expect our judicial system and lawmakers to make 60 years mean just that, 60 years!
