Diamond Creek Candles

I have been very busy this weekend working on my website. While I was surfing a couple of Manual Traffic Sites, I ran across a great opportunity with Diamond Creek Candles.

Right now, they are offering FREE signup for a 30 day trial and after that you can sign up for as little as $5.00 a month. They have been in business since 1998, and pride themselves on providing customers with the best-quality products and personal service. After looking at the great product line, I decided to sign up so you can now order from me by using my online catalog.

We take an enormous pride in creating our products, and hope that you'll find something in our catalog that you like. We also can create custom orders; call or email and let us know what you want.

DiamondCreek Candles is proud to offer our Diamond Chunk Candle line and our Traditional Candle line. We carry over 75 fragrances with every candle hand poured to perfection in the USA. We use only a Soy/Paraffin blend for all Jar Candles. 100% Customer Satisfaction on all of our products here at DiamondCreek Candles, we are sure you will not be disappointed with our line of products.

If you are looking for a great business opportunity, this is one that you can't pass up. The monthly fee is less than the cost of 1 meal at a fast food restaurant.

Don't forget candles make great gifts!

Updates to my website

I updated my website, and I wanted to get your input. I would appreciate any and all comments. I know it is very basic right now, I'm trying to work on it as often as I can but if you have any specific suggestions I would appreciate it.

StartXChange Free Traffic Exchange

I just found a new Traffic Exchange that is really great. Not only is it free but it's a good traffic boost. In the back office, you can add a profile and picture and participate in forums. It also allows you to add friends, (buddies) even communicate with them, whether they are your referrals or not. There is also a great TEAM approach to surfing which can benefit all members of a team.

The newsletter is actually a Blog, which is another format to generate traffic for yourself if you leave relevant comments. This is a manual traffic exchange that has true community flavor. They have done a GREAT job in “modernizing” the standard manual traffic exchange.

I’ve just started with this Free Traffic Exchange but their surfing seems almost interactive in the fact that you have to match the shapes in order to be able to surf(right now it's Thanksgiving related shapes). The timer is set at 10 seconds so credits add up fast, and the bonuses are great!! The opening surf screen provides a checklist. If you complete all of the items you can be eligible for some of those bonuses.

Check it out for yourself.

Happy Surfing...

New Mystery Shops

Here are a couple of new Mystery Shops that are going on right now.

Service Performance Group has Mattress Giant Shops available in many cities. The pay is $18.00 and there is no purchase required. Attention to detail and timely reporting are a must. You must fill out the required agreement to sign up for their email job boards, but it is a good company to work with.

Bare International has quite a few shops available. Everything from Health and Fitness Shops with LA Fitness or Ballys to restaurant shops with Chili's. This is a great company that I have done several shops with.

Most companies assign shops based on a rating system based on previous shop activity. Most restaurant shops require at least a shop rating of 5.

Good luck and have fun. As always there is no fee to sign up to shop with any of the companies that I work for.

A Cool Thing Happened Today

As many of you know, I am a full-time Hotel General Manager by day and a blogger and entrepreneur by night. This morning I came in to work, and I was so excited to see a couple of cars from the Richard Childress Racing Team. The Holiday Inn and Jack Daniels car were both there, now granted these are only show cars but it was still cool to see them sitting in my parking lot. Apparently, they were on their way to Homestead this weekend and needed a place to stay. As you can see, I couldn't resist a picture in front of the trailer of the Holiday Inn car. (I know it's kind of hard to see because I'm kind of in a shadow from the sun.) Anyway, the gentleman who drives the truck was so sweet to take my picture and then he gave me some flyers to give to my staff. Go Jeff Burton!!

Strapped for Holiday Cash?

With the Holidays right around the corner and the economy the way it is, some people may be feeling a cash crunch right about now. Are you considering a visit to family or is the idea of buying all of those gifts stressing you out? If so, then a payday loan may be a good option to get you through this time. A payday loan or cash advance is a quick and easy way to bridge your cash needs between pay days without a credit check. It is a small short-term loan that can range from $100 up to $1,500. The money can be electronically deposited and repaid from your checking account on mutually agreed upon dates. Payday Loans helps the consumer compare short term loan options.

I have actually used a payday loan before. A couple of years ago, I was in an accident and did a lot of damage to my vehicle so it took longer than expected to be repaired. The insurance only covered a certain amount of time for a car rental and it was right around Thanksgiving and I needed to go home for the holiday. I decided to do a payday loan to get me through, and it was very helpful. Thankfully, I am in much better shape now (knock on wood), but at least I know it's an option if I ever need it.

Great New Affiliate Program

Check out this exciting affiliate program called RocketProfit. You can sign up and start earning commissions immediately like I do.

Please use the link below to join so I can get credit for you as part of the RocketReferral program.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help signing up! I signed up last month but hadn't really done anything with it until Sunday, but I checked my stats today and I've already made $18.00.

Dancing With The Stars?

Who is watching Dancing With The Stars? I love this show, it is a good clean show and it's always so entertaining. I love Maksim Chmerkovski and Mel B. of the Spice Girls and I think they have a good shot at winning. Personally, Jennie Garth is one of my favorites just because I have watched her ever since Beverly Hills 90210.

Who do you think will get voted off Dancing With The Stars tomorrow? Be sure to vote in the Dancing With The Stars poll.

I won HipMommysPlace 3rd giveaway contest

On October 20th, I entered a contest with to win a Geoffrey Beane wallet/passcase. After winning, I quickly received the wallet in the mail and I was so happy that I won. It is a beautiful, soft leather and I'm sure my dad will love it. Thank you! Sorry for the delay in posting a picture, but I have been very sick lately so I haven't been posting as much.
