Summer might be winding down but things are not slowing down here. The month of August featured discussions about making and spending money (which contributed to the bottom line in my efforts to blog for money) as well as winning free money. Thrown into the mix was another edition of our Q&A and an exciting […]

When we got together last week, we took a look at a handful of posts with the intent to further our education on a variety of topics. As we learn new things, we often start to make a list of what we want to accomplish with our new found skills. Therefore, this edition of Speedlinking […]

With summer vacation dwindling down for many kids, I thought it would be fun to dedicate this edition of Speedlinking to continuing our own education.

Given our recent discussion about achieving blog milestones, it is fitting that the month of July also brought the highest number of comments in any one month period. Before we get to the specific number of comments, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a look at the posts that generated the most dialog […]


The month of July has certainly been full of excitement; from discussions about sniping to a visit from the police. Add in a few contests, one for the phsyically gifted and one for the literary gifted, and you have a recipe for success. As we close the chapter on another month of 2008, it is […]

Before leaving work for the day, I sent out a tweet asking if anyone had fun or interesting links to share for the next Speedlinking edition.
