Add your two cents

If you haven’t checked out ShoeMoney.com lately, you’re missing out on some talented musicians in the affiliate marketing world. Jeremy ran a theme song contest last week for his Shoemoney System and all the contributions are in.

He’s asking for some feedback on which ones you like. You can go to his blog post here to check them out.

How do you like your Pho?


Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR.

Pho is one of our favorite things to go eat at GetAds. Since Beau is new here and hasn’t experience Pho yet, we decided to go yesterday.

If you aren’t familiar, Pho s a Vietnamese beef and noodle soup. The soup includes noodles made from rice and is often served with basil, lime, bean sprouts and peppers that are added to the soup by the consumer.

Happy Spring

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a happy Spring!

Until next time, drive safe and stay warm!
