I posted your new give-away on twitter, I am already a subscriber.
Awesome things that you post. I am HOOKED! I can't wait to see the deals you post. The free blankets/ tumblers was what got me hooked, my first deal.
Do you find deals for kids clothes or stuff for me?

Penny said...

I like LinkIn & YouTube. I don't have a blog yet, but have considered it. This would be a great book to have! Thanks again.

Delores said...

I like YouTube. I have watched many videos on knitting to help me get better. Twitter is a close second!

Kristy said...

You must have read my mind. At least it was a light read...hee, hee. I've been contemplating starting a blog and trying to decide which one to use, Wordpress or Blogger. This would hopefully help me decide. I am currently completely addicted to Facebook and have a Myspace. I haven't ventured into the land of Twitter because I know that my with my addictive personality, my husband and children would never eat or have clean clothes again. I'm sure they'd miss me...or maybe not. Anyway, if I do start a blog, I've heard Twitter is a must so I might have to check it out. Either way, thank you so much!! Take care!

I'd have to say YouTube, as there's always something entertaining or interesting to watch.

My favorite is definitely Stumble Upon, I love finding new websites and companies through it. Facebook is also essential and I'm new to twitter but once I get the hang of it, it may be a favorite.

Hi Carrie,

I love reading your blog, I bought my Entertainment Book for this year using cashbaq after you mentioned it. I've also signed up for some of the mystery shopping sites you've recommended.

I think my favorite Web 2.0 tools are Twitter and Facebook.

Thanks for the giveaways and the info on such great deals.

Nile said...

I rarely win anything, but I work with Wordpress (I am a web designer). I saw the RT from another and plugged it for you. Good opp. :)

I am becoming addicted to facebook! This book sounds great! I have a family blog on blogger and a preschool blog on wordpress. I am having a difficult time figuring out the wordpress! Hopefully, this book would help.

Thanks!

I like YouTube.

frugalisfab said...

Oh, I would really like to win because I am thinking very seriously about moving to Word Press.

My favorite is Twitter. It is so great to network with other bloggers. Most people I know in real life have no idea what it is that I do, so it is nice to connect with people who understand.

Love Vigilante said...

Facebook is my favorite by far for keeping up with people in my life.

Lori said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I guess wordpress is what you are using now? I was wondering about that.

My favorite facebook, though I rarely find time.

Have a great week!
