Hi! I'm Jennifer - known as 'PotPieGirl' online. Welcome to my blog! I just want to let you know that this post may contain affiliate links which means, at no cost to YOU, that I might receive compensation if you purchase something through a link on my site. In the blogging world that's called "affiliate marketing", and it's a very common way bloggers make money by sharing products they love (like I do). Yes, that's how many blogs make money. For example, This blogger makes $50,000+ a MONTH with her blog - blogging is solid home-business idea for just about everyone.

I am exhausted. What a week! I’ve been very busy with my niche sites and other projects that I could literally put my head on this keyboard and sleep like a baby. However, all this hard work is paying off. Just looking at my stats tends to give me a second wind…or fourth wind….fifth? =)
As we start a new month, I’d like to share a few cool things I’ve come across in my travels on the internet.

Free Stuff and an Awesome Affiliate Marketing Blog

Google Adsense on ABC News
Are you a “Gray Googler”? Check out this great news clip on ABC News about the Google Adsense program. Interesting stuff…. guess the “secret” is outta the bag now, huh? =)
Squidoo for Christmas
Yes all you good boys and girls…the holidays are coming. We are now officially entering the holiday shopping season. Get you Squidoo lenses freshened up and ready for business! Don’t let your sales opportunities slip by you. Spend an extra 5 minutes on your lenses to make sure all your links work, your images are appropriate and your holiday decorations are up.
Speaking of Squidoo….
Captain Squid has a great Squidoo-related blog. Great tools and advice. Highly recommended.
Final thoughts from my exhausted state
And for a great laugh, read this blog that offers a copy of one womans eBay auction for Pokemon cards. Sound silly? If you have kids – this will make you laugh til you cry! Poor woman had to take all 6 of her young children to the grocery store and one of them slipped a box of pokemon cards into her cart. Funny, funny stuff. Read “Adventures in Grocery Shopping”
Ok, to bed I go. Here’s to a great November!
