First word:

A few weeks back I got an email from google telling me that
they'd changed something about the way my website is listed
in their search engine. I honestly paid next to no attention
to it because my website is strictly non-commercial and I
couldn't see what difference it would make. I was mistaken.
There has been a difference. For the first time in years,
this publication actually has a few new subscribers! So,
hello new subscribers and welcome aboard! This publication
isn't what it once was but I still manage to find something
interesting once in a while.

Off we go.

A few things I've enjoyed on youtube lately:

I make a (very) few extra dollars a month taking online surveys.
Global Test Market is the most consistent.
Peanut Labs is #2 on my list.
There are other sites but I don't feel they're worthy of a mention.
Have you done online surveys? Which site is your favorite?

Do, how has the internet changed your daily routines in the past ten
years and what do you do now that you never did before? 

I do a lot of shopping online for computer parts, socks, underwear,
shoes, light bulbs and car parts. Most of the time I can find what I
need on eBay but it's always worth double-checking with a google
shopping search.

Best regards to one and all,

see you next time.
