Finding Time To Read Online

Today I was going through a Feedly account and have  found that Inc.com has some great articles. These articles have made me think and also made me come up with new articles for myself and the other websites I have.

Reading does make you think of "outside the box" material. In 2016 if you haven't already you might want to find some books to read and stick to them.

Put that Kindle to work and find some new material on Amazon.com Or just read daily on your favorite websites, like Inc.com

Pet Peeves of Most Bloggers, Me Too

Here is a pet peeve of mine being someone that is blogging and has been blogging for years. People that like your stuff all over social media but don't want to interact with it past that point and don't share it with their group of friends as something they would use.

I mean you liked what I posted so share the knowledge or share it with some one that would like the topic of discussion.

Lets all face it to. Twitter, Facebook, and Blogs are all here to make some kind of money. Everyone wants to sell you something online or via email.

Email marketing is still and probably be the fastest way to reach people to buy stuff. Look at black Friday for crying out loud. People still shop. It makes them feel better or look better lol. You could go on  and on about black Friday shopping but we all get it.

So just a note help a blogger and blogger because they want to help you out too! Trust me, they put a lot of content to help you learn and shop better.

Just food for thought!

Cyber Monday And Black Friday Round Up

Who shops Black Friday at Target.com. Who knows why people go out shopping anyways. The deals get better for Cyber Monday to begin with and at the end of the year.

I would wait to see what kind of online "Cyber Monday" sales websites are going to have. Now that Cyber Monday is over! Not that its a bad thing but this year "Cyber Monday" beat out Black Friday.

This is however, a $2 billion industry and most of the people that have eCommmerce stores are looking for 200-300 people to visit a day.

Shit I am looking to hit 1,000 posts on this website. But Cyber Monday was a success for most people and hey you shop all year round online, just watch the walmart.com Christmas commercial.





Christmas Shopping and Black Friday!

Christmas shopping is upon us! Not as fun as it sounds but you have to do it for your family and here are some great places to get a kick in the pants. Also if you didn't read my Black Friday write up? This is going to be a bigger list.

Now talking to girls, Sephora.com is a big winter! Kohl.com is another big one! Perfumania.com you can get some "smell good" there. 

Ebay.com and Amazon.com are always hot for low prices. But if you want to talk about low prices for Christmas shopping, Walmart.com is always a winner!

Pricetag.com as some good deals and don't for get that Cyber Monday is soon. 

But You know the Steve Maddens I bought at Macys.com there are holding up very nicely with the way I walk, I actually want to get another pair of them. 

Check out freepeople.com they have some great deals too! 

Hope this helps with some Christmas shopping. And don't forget that shoes are always a good gift. Shoesonline.com 

Buying Steve Madden Shoes

Yesterday I bought a new pair of shoes (or boots) but more like casual shoes. They are Steve Maddens. They should work great for the winter time. But not as a "everyday" type shoe.

I have come to the conclusion that I need to have about 4 pairs of shoes so I don't wear them all out so fast.

Shoes are a pain for me I spent about 45 minutes at Macys.com trying to figure out what shoes are going to last on me and which ones aren't.

Another place I just found out about is shoesthatloveyou.com.

Whats Good With Samsung TVs

Shopping for a TV is for the birds lol. Not really but there are so many options. Samsung.com or LG.com or Sony.com. It makes your head spin!

I was at bestbuy.com last night talking to a kid that knew a lot about TVs but my girlfriend said he had bad BO! I couldn't smell it, I was to busy looking at these 75 inch tvs that cost about $9,000.

Now I am all about a nice TV especially with the Superbowl getting close but 9K for a TV, c'mon man.

We started out looking at the 55" Samsung TV's but they have crappy refresh rates. You want a refresh rate of 120, not 60. I learned that last night.

All and all I might wait until after Christmas to get a new TV.

Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift Break Up But Who Cares!


Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris broke up! Let's get on with our lives. Taylor Swift has been dating to much. As she even thought maybe, she is the problem? THATS why men lie to her.

Calvin Harris probably gave you enough material to come out with an album! Hope no one buys that shit!

Fantasy Football QB For Week 5


This week in Fantasy Football I have a new QB which I am hoping he can get me some points. Sam Bradford is my QB for the week. He is projected 18.7 points or something like that and I need a solid 25 points from him.

Am I going to get it? Probably not but I can hope. But my decison was Nick Foles or Sam Bradford and Sammy is playing at home against the Saints and the running back I have is CJ Spiller so I should be okay.

Nick Foles play Green Bay in Green Bay, even though Nick Foles was a top 5 pick for week 5. The odds are against him in Green Bay. So I am starting Sam Bradford and hope he can rack up the points.

Because my QB, Tannehill is out on BYE Week! But one thing I do have that I forgot to mention is Spiller is starting for me, after his 19 point game Sunday lets hope he can do it again!

Inside College Football Saturday UofM Wins, And State Wins

What a nice win for Michigan over Maryland. First Big Ten win of the season and second shut out in 15 years. This Michigan team is for real. Let's hope they can get pass Northwestern that also tore it up on the field today.

The Jim Haugburgh era is heating up and it so good to see.  Michigan State has to stop winning and the way Ohio State is playing Indiana, we might see Michigan State #1. Not good unless you are a State fan!

TI Calls It Quits With Azalea


T.I. told New York City radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday that he is calling it quits with famous Azalea. Azalea worked with T.I. before her career took off, and she was viewed as his mentee.

Some people just grow up to be to big I don't really like Azalea or her music But T.I. is one of the best to come out of Atlanta.

Hes on to bigger and better!

TUMBLR.COM Is Coming Out With A Clothing Line


What is this I hear that Tumblr.com is getting their own clothing line? And its designers are bloggers. What do bloggers know about clothes. This could be a new trend. Watch out for Digg.com and Reddit.com.

Any Good Places For Phone Cases


Last night my girlfriend went to buy a phone case on ebay.com and couldn't because the only option was to pay with her Paypal account. Is there something missing here?

Not that Paypal isn't easy to use, but we all don't have money growing in out Paypal accounts like we all hope.

Thinkgeek.com might have some phone cases. Now I need to shop for a new one. Any ideas?

5 Benefits Of Treadmill Workouts


Now from my experience and the people I talk to that go to the gym. No one likes the treadmill. But I'm hoping that this will give you the positive mind set for trying it out.

There are a lot of treadmill workouts out there. You want to protect your heart and save your knees. Here is 5 ways that the treadmill helps:


  • Protects your heart, the treadmill helps you run indoors so you don't have to deal with the smog
  • Idiot proof your workout, the treadmill sets the workout up for you
  • Save your knees, the treadmill has a lot more cushion than the roads or trails do for your body
  • Save on the laundry, you don't have to run outside in the winter, so you don't have to put on the extra layers and sweat more (like REI.com fitness wear)
  • Workout is just as hard, as long as you have a 1% incline on the treadmill it would be just like running outside
Hope this helps you with a new way to look at the dusty treadmill in your house.


5 Good Reasons To Quit Facebook


Now I like Facebook but there is a lot to not like about it. Here are about 5 reasons why you need or should want to get off Facebook.

  1. It Wastes Your Time
    It's estimated that the average casual user (17 minutes per day on Facebook) and waste about 40 days scrolling through senseless bullsh*t 
  2. Facebook Uses You To Sell
    Its true that want to see if you can play with your friends emotions to buy things. Lets face it, Facebook is an experiment and we are all caught in the middle.
  3. You Are A Target To Them
    They throw advertisements in your face all the time. And let advertisers blow up your inbox with emails. Not saying emails are bad, its a boom business. Yes email marketing is huge now.
  4. Facebook Can Be Bad For Your Health
    Studies have shown the lack of physical activity can hurt your immune system. And hurt the way you think. It has a huge impact on bullying.
  5. Nothing You Post Matters
    Bottom line is that the people that probably care about what your doing when you post it up on Facebook are with you anyways. Don't get me wrong, Facebook is good to stay in touch with family but other than that Facebook as turned into a ad warehouse.
Just some food for thought for next time your on Facebook. Remember your friends are probably just trying to sell you something.

Everyone loves clothes I mean you have to look good to feel good don't you? I would say so. But there are somethings about clothing that need to come clean.


  1. Clothes that cost more are better - Not true

  4. Men's clothes are only mean't for men - I would have to agree, but hoodies are ok! No women would look good in eastdane.com clothing, lets face it. Or maybe so there are so many uni sex clothing now
  5.  Sneakers only belong at the gym or on vacation, so no shoes from payless.com or shoeline.com
  6. Everything needs to match - Not True
  7. Colors are seasonal - Not all the time
  8. Certain colors should never be worn together
  9. Never wear socks with open toed shoes that's a no no
  10. New clothes are good - Yeah they are!

4 Tips For The Start At The Gym


There are so many decisions when you go into the gym of what are you going to do for each part of your body. Here are 4 good tips that will have you stressing less!


  1. Ellipitical or Treadmill?
    Say the Treadmill you get the most full body benefits and that still is true if you just walk (that is what I do)
  2. Free weights or Machine weights?
    Free weights for sure, they target more than one muscle and you get the most burn
  3. Playlist or TV?
    Its a personal question, but your playlist will motivate you more. I use slackerradio.com, iheartradio app, and 8tracks.com. Find one that will get you going
  4. Water or Sports Drink
    Water is the best thing to hydrate your body, the upside is your not adding that sugar weight back on
Hope these tips help you get back in the gym!

Google Maps Potholes With GPS


Totally off today's topic but this is interesting news:

Google patents a system for cars that maps potholes. Google has patented a system for cars capable of automatically detecting potholes in roads.

This would help in Michigan because we are pothole city. The technology will use GPS to pin point the damaged cement.

The roads around here are ridiculous every time you turn around there doing something.
