Blogging ABC's

Since our family is currently experiencing a couple of stressful and sad situations, I was happy to find this cute, no-thinking-required idea for a blog post!  It's a fun way to get to know someone better... or at least, to get to know their internet habits better.  :)

You just open a new tab and type www. followed by a letter of the alphabet into the browser to see what website your browser thinks you're wanting to go to.  So here goes!

A:  AFirmFoundation.blogspot.com!  I've gotta keep tabs on my own blog, right?

B:  Blogger.com.  To post on said blog.

C:  CNN.com.

D:  Dotti'sWeightLossZone.com.

E:  Ebay.com.  Even though I have been failing miserably at my Frugal Friday posts, that doesn't mean I'm not still trying to be frugal.  :)

F:  Facebook.com.  The topic of a future blog post of mine, hopefully.

G:  Google.com. Ok, I'm only to "G" and already have proven myself to be the most boring internet user in the history of the world.

H:  HSN.com (Home Shopping Network)... where I purchased my own birthday gift last month to me from my parents.  :)

I:  InboxDollars.com.  An easy way to make some extra money, which can be cashed out in the form of gift cards to various places (stores, restaurants, etc).  Want to join?  Click on my link so that I'll get credit!  :)

J:  Johnson County District Court Document Search.  That would be me keeping tabs on someone.  

K:  KPC.com (Kansas Pay Center)  The Child Support payment website.  We live in hope!  :)

L:  Lowes.com.  

M:  MoneySavingMom.com. I've been following her since the days when she lived here locally and had a blog that I dearly loved!  Sometime after she launched Money Saving Mom, she decided that she wouldn't be able to maintain both websites, and had to let the blog go.  :(  I've missed it terribly, but the Money Saving Mom website has helped me to learn how to save a LOT of money in grocery shopping.

N:  Netfix.com.  I never thought our subscription to Netflix would help with home schooling, but on the spur of the moment last week, the kids and I watched a documentary on Christopher Columbus!

O:  OpinionOutpost.com. My FAVORITE survey company.  I faithfully take their surveys, and they faithfully pay me.  :)  Join here, if you'd like!

P:  Paypal.com.  Several of the survey companies that I take surveys with pay me through Paypal.  Cha-ching!

Q:  QuestionPro.com.  I dunno... I must have taken a survey of theirs at some point.

R:  RevolutionHealth.  Looking up some medical stuff for a family member.

S:  Swagbucks!  Someday I'm going to actually follow through with my promise to post a review on Swagbucks.  :)  I love Swagbucks... currently, I earn $10 per month in Amazon gift cards by using Swagbucks to do my internet searches.  If you'd like to sign up, pleeeease use this link to do so!

T:  TurntoChrist.org... my church!  I was nervous, wondering if that would be what would pop up or not.  I knew I'd be in for some heckling in the comments section if it wasn't! 

U:  UrbanDictionary.com.  Don't visit it!  There's nothing good there.  But it was helpful recently when I wanted to inform a friend about her misuse of a slang word.  :)  Sorry, unnamed friend!  Are you blushing now?

V:  VerizonWireless.com.  They never stop working for me.  Can you hear me now?

W: Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office.  Keeping tabs, part two.

X:  XtraLaundry.com.  Coupons, probably.

Y:  YahooMail.com.  The email account that I use for surveys/moneymaking types of things.

Z:  Nothing!  Nada.  Zip.  Get it?  ZIP!  At least that starts with a "Z".  :)

Keeping tabs, part three: www.dc.state.us/kasper - anybody who has ever been in prison or on parole in Kansas.

Keeping tabs, part four: www.accesskansas.org/kbi/offender_registry - all registered offenders in Kansas, whether for sex, drugs or rock and roll (ahem, violence).

I did not know you were on Verizon. We have Verizon, so now we know we won't burn minutes with you. I will have to stop ignoring your calls late in the month! Ha ha.

I have a "Z" for you - zappos.com. Shoes, boots and such. I was informed it was a great site with great policies, though I have never used it. Someone I know always gets the best deals on footwear there.

Thanks for the tips! :) I've never needed to use the "keeping tabs, part four" link, but have often used "part three". Here's another: https://www.courts.mo.gov/casenet/base/welcome.do , which is Missouri Case Net. It shows criminal and civil cases for most counties in Missouri, that you can look up by the person's name. I'm a private investigator trapped inside a homemaker's body! ha.
