1000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

Today I passed the 1000 member mark in my AGLOCO network. As I write this post, I am sitting at 1,006 members. When I gave my last update three days ago, I was at 588 members, so growth has been good.

It’s Going To Be A Long Rush Hour

We just got back from lunch and judging by the traffic I can tell it’s going to be a long rush hour when people get off work. We got more snow this morning and it’s till coming down.

It’s An Advertising Bonanza!

This morning I got an email from Text-Links-Ads saying they sold a link on my blog. I signed up for Text-Link-Ads a while ago but have completely forgotten about them. I tried selling my own advertising on this blog but wasn’t very successful at it. The three links under “Sponsored Link” were really freebies. I was hoping to land a […]
