Read, Write and Get Paid…wait, what?

I would bet that, like me, that are many people out there who love reading books and also enjoy writing as well.  The two things tend to go hand-in-hand.  Many instances after reading a really good book, I’ve wrote a blog about it or shared my experience on Facebook to let others know they should read or download the book.  Have you ever wanted to let an author know they really did a great job of capturing your attention and hooked you as a reader?  Imagine if there was an opportunity that you could get paid for doing just that.  Well, actually there is….Online Book club, an internet community for book lovers, has a chance for readers who are interested in writing reviews to get paid to do so.  This intrigued me because well, as we know, I love to read…and write and have been told I’m not too bad at it.  If you are interested in learning more, click here.

Product Review: Roku & Sling TV

I don’t know about you, but I am sick of paying an arm and a leg for cable television.  I kept hearing about Sling TV and “cutting the cord.”  At first, I was hesitant because I was pretty spoiled from Direct TV and having so many channels at my finger tips.  What I realized, however, is that between Netflix and the channels Sling offers, I would be just fine.  So as of a week ago, I did indeed “cut the cord.”  I already had a Roku stick so I hooked that up to my tv and signed up for Sling.  Granted, I don’t get all the channels I had before, but they’ll do for now.  My bill will be a flat $40/month and I am just fine with that.

Anyone else cut the cord and happy  with the results?  By the way, Roku products can be ordered here:
