You think I’m kidding? If you read this, beware. The days of that sleek string bikini view of the beach are threatened due to the fact that women no longer want to go away on weekend getaways. According to new research by Oxygen Network, in Oxygen Network Studies Girls Gone Wired, its much more normal for women to be wanting computer gadgets than, say, finger nail polish or that new Sunbeam Blender. “…if given the choice most women would preferRead more…

Another press release on paying people to post in their blogs on different topics showed up today, only this time, there’s a twist to the business model. Now, if you blog for pay, you can donate your earnings to charity. I decided to take a look, again, at this pay for posting service offered by PayPerPost.
