Christmas holiday is coming. How's the holiday shopping going for everyone?
Are you at the end, near the end, or just beginning?
I got a late start this year, but made a pretty good dent on the hot christmas giveaways

TM, I couldn't figure this one out, as it looks reasonable at face value, what's the score with site counts? How do they give any monetary advantage if you don't do anything? Once you sign up for "free stuff" I can understand where this may or may not lead, it all looks pretty harmless Posted Image

Site counts = Companies Banners/Ads being seen = $ for the person that puts the link up = Spam . . . . . . The link that worked looked harmless, but the 2 that didn't leads me to think that it is just spam . . . because some people are really not that good at what they do. Work from Home ads get these sort of people in :) But then again it could be all kosher, but i don't understand why someone with 7 post before this, would do something like this . . . . Its the pessimist in me :P

Thats what i was expecting when Michelle posted after my post to him, teaching him about the Site Hits = Banners/Advertisements being seen . . . . I suppose the water got the best of him, and he is out sailing now . . .
