Free business cards from Starbucks

This is so cool!  Starbucks is giving away free business cards and they actually look pretty good.  You can choose the design and what information you want to display.  They will mail them to you, or you can print them right from your home computer.

Get paid to socialize - No kidding!

Let me start by saying that I would NEVER recommend a money-making opportunity if it wasn't legit. Why? Because this is my blog. It represents me and who I am and I am an honest person. So, whenever you see me recommend something, I honestly believe it to be a good thing.

With that said...

I recently signed on with a site that pays you to socialize.  It's called Sidetick, and it's a site that pays you to socialize online. Make friends, promote your website or blog, join groups, post polls, create blogs, share pictures...basically it's the same stuff you do on Facebook for free.

If you want to join Sidetick, you may do so here.  The payout is $ 25.00, and after just one week I'm almost there!

Free music downloads from Amazon

Yesterday I was looking for free music downloads and stumbled across a few from Amazon.  What I like about using Amazon for free music is that I know it's safe.  I grabbed a few songs and they all downloaded very fast and have a good sound quality.   Even the music downloads that aren't free are affordable.

Head over to Amazon and see if there are any songs you'd like to get for free.
