Trying out Blog Advance
I thought I'd take a look at some of the competing add exchange programs. One I have just started using is Blog Advance. I've been hearing good things about its support of the blogging community. As it is, it is too early for me to tell how it compares with the others.
What I do know is that they give you 50 free blog visitors when you signup. Also, at the moment they are giving away an extra 20 visits to new members who write a post about Blog Advance.
I'll post again soon and let you know how I find the service. First impressions are very good though - the quality of the blogs seems better than on some of the alternatives.
So living on $40 is easy, i actually only spent $30 last week as i was sans nott. It breaks down roughly to $20 food and $20 alcohol. I was meant to have $50 a week but i bought a new ball dress and had to cut back. The fact that i do get free food from home i think must play a huge roll in my budget, for example, today i got bread, onions, potatoes, capsicum, chicken sasuage rolls and pizza rolls from home. But then again, if i had to but all that stuff, it would have just been bread, potatoes and onions that i would have to buy. The other way to not spend money is just to be really cheap. No desserts, under $10 when i go out, no food on campus, no clothes, no CD's, no books, no savings (do you realise how painful this is?)... It means i have less fun but it also means that i get to live hear and not in Rowville with my sister, or worse, drop out of uni and go home. When (if) i get a job, my budget will increase, but at the mo' this is what i've got, so this is what i deal with!
Sheesh, this could almost be a blog entry in itself... but then i wouldn't be so Pretentious as to write a blog entry about money... hahahah, Ok, thats enough now.. Have fun with all your money!
P.S. Can I have a sausage roll? :)
How often do you write in this thing? Seriously, you post more often than i do! Have you thought about actually doing some work??
P.S. You have a new nickname (well, two actually). its Bran. An amalgamation of Brigid and Dan, along the lines of Bennifer. I like it, i may start calling you that. Be warned
I thought I'd jump on the Blog Advance bandwagon and say I'm loving their services.
$20 a week on food is insane super_hot_mel.
P.S. I haven't got that link to work yet Deb. The firefox download bar shows that it's fully downloaded, but it won't finalise it - I'll keep trying!
