Couponing is the easiest and smartest way to clip your way to big savings. If you’re very good at it like some bloggers are, you may go home with a bag full of free groceries every time you visit the store. Sure it maybe an extra can of tomato sauce or tuna you may not need at the moment, but stocking up your pantry with food won’t exactly hurt your budget.
Growing up we may remember our moms clipping away at flyers and newspapers for rebates. Today, all we need to do is go online and find printable and reedemable coupons.
With the economic downturn, there’s no shame in becoming quite frugal or crazy with the coupons, as you might have notice coupons have an interesting way of popping up on the internet- you have these extreme couponing sites, your fave mommy blogs and online deal sites like cheapsally.com to thank for! These sites update you with their latest coupon finds on the web, they even have digital coupon holders where you can sort the value of your coupons and best of all, you can even go out and trade coupons with other pennypinching bloggers.
Bloggers may also stretch their dollars not just on food, but on personal hygiene products and other wares. In the long run, the money you save through couponing, can free up your wallet to buy items you really need.
And when you do finally get to redeem those online coupons at the supermarket, don’t forget to be kind to the cashier, after all you are going home fully loaded with freebies.

In fact, you have all the time to be creative with your blog interviews – so ask the right questions, edit out the kinks and make sure to present the interview as an enjoyable and informative piece of web entertainment.

Whether you decide to leave your mark on a popular commenting system, or crosspost on someone’s Facebook Account, the icon you use should be well-thought out and should at least, reflect a part of your personality.

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. For what Microsoft did to start-up company, Plurk, itâ€™s more like a slap to the face.
Plurk, one of the biggest microblogging services in Asia, is accusing Microsoft China for ripping off not only their design but also their code with their beta release of MSN Juku, Microsoft Chinaâ€™s newly released microblogging service based on Windows Live Messenger launched last November 2009.
According to Plurk’s blog post,
“… we were absolutely shocked and outraged when we first saw with our own eyes the cosmetic similarities Microsoftâ€™s new offering had with Plurk. From the filter tabs, emoticons, qualifier/verb placement, Karma scoring system, media support, new user walkthroughs to pretty much everything else that gives Plurk its trademark appeal, Microsoft Chinaâ€™s offering ripped off our service.”
