Comments to Economic Stimulus Checks, Day Jobs, and Allowances

  1. Thanks for the link to my commission schedule article. And good luck with the social media stuff – when you figure out Facebook let me know, because I have been very, very slow to adopt anything outside of Stumble and Twitter (and I use those sparingly).

  2. Thanks for the mention. 🙂


  3. Sounds good, I’m really getting hooked on Twitter as of late. I’m fizzling out on StumleUpon, but will try to do more with that. I continue to avoid Facebook for the time being. Will follow you on Twitter.


  4. Hey, thanks for the link! I’m so far behind in social networking I may never catch up but I sure am trying. Seems that just as I get used to one format, another one I need to learn comes along.


  5. Thank you for sharing my 34 ways to save money on car expenses with your readers.


  6. Hey Madison, thanks for linking to my article!
