Wasting time online? Try this instead!

Today I was surfing/trolling the net for something to read. I came across this blog as it was linked from an about.com article. I started reading and I'm about halfway through. The author is no longer blogging (or has taken a rather long hiatus), but there is plenty of good stuff to read here. The main focus is on finances, but it has a nice twist as he focuses on finances in daily life. He also has the fluff post now and then, sometimes posts recipes, and has a Sunday feature which includes links various links from around the internet. All in all, it's a good entertaining read that isn't a waste of time.

You and your interests in finances. :-p

Have you ever checked your own credit report? I'm afraid. (Of internet vulnerability btw, not the outcome. :-p)

I checked it about a year and a half ago and it said I didn't exist... of course, I didn't have any credit cards or anything like that at all... no bills in my name, etc, so I was basically non-existent in the credit world (hence, credit report). I have been meaning to check it again now.

Uh yeah, I meant after you did exist. Why would you check your *credit* report if you had no credit, or bills? :-p

Because I had trouble getting a credit card. When companies decide if they should give you a credit card or not, they check your credit report. Since mine said I didn't exist, they didn't want to give me one. lol. It became a vicious circle, that, thanks to the RIT credit card not caring if I existed or not, I was able to break out of.

Oh yeah. It's a fun catch 22. We won't give you one because you don't yet have one. Huh?

If you find a good site to check it, let me know.

I bought a new Hanson song off of a UK site and it won't play on either computer. It's aggravating. It takes a bit for me to trust an online buying site, and this is part of why. :(
