Award-Winning Online Furniture Store

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

Maybe you’ve heard of the big name furniture stores, and the little guys trying to keep up where you live. But what about the guys online? They have the whole world to compete with, so they must be tough! has furniture at great prices, plus eco friendly furniture for the kids (and anyone else serious about being nice to mother earth). So why hoof it to the store when you could conveniently shop online at

Secret Links and Coupon Codes

Monday, March 31st, 2008

I just ran across, another site specializing in coupon codes and online coupons. But on top of that it has a bunch of links to secret discount areas, too. It’s a blog with the goal of “posting the best deals on the internet daily.”

The best deals on the internet?!! Awesome! It reminds me of Mozart’s Ghost…

Coupon Codes + Internet = Awesome

Friday, March 28th, 2008

This is genius! Someone out there made a site listing the coupon codes for a bunch of different stores. It’s Finally, right? I mean after all these years of sharing music and videos, you’d think there’d be a place to say, “Hey! I got this great deal using this code!” And I don’t just mean some forum. Sure, forums have been the place to share coupon codes for a while, but that’s just because no one major site has grouped all the best deals together. And now one has. has discount info on everything, like “$30 off order of $500 or more at” and a promotion code for cheap airline tickets. Cool.

You can also sort among stores, and see which discounts your favorite companies offer. So like if you were a huge Sharper Image fan, and wanted an Ionic Breeze super cheap, you’d click “Sharper Image.” Or maybe you want discount running shoes at Foot Locker. Or one of those Little Giant Ladder Systems with free shipping. Whatever you want, it’s probably on discount, and knows about it.

Wow, seeing all those great deals makes me want to go spend some money. Seriously. Not just to help boost our economy. It’s like when you see a ton of bargains, and are convinced that you’ll be getting way more value for your dollar than usual, it’s a pretty big incentive to spend! But again, the only reason I’m shop-hungry is because of the prospect of so many deals. It’s about time came along and compiled an updated list of coupon codes for every major online store.

LabelWriters Rule!

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

I think it was a Dymo — my first label maker. It was a handheld, non-electric label gun. Like a handheld typewriter. Bart Simpson had one, I’m pretty sure. I vaguely remember him going around and labeling everything “Property of Bart Simpson.” Yes, now I remember! He even labeled all the Duff Beer in the fridge “Property of Bart Simpson.” Homer was somewhat disappointed. Anyway, Dymo has since upgraded all their label products, and now offer LabelWriters as well. For hardcore label-making needs.

A LabelWriter is a printer specifically for printing things like postage labels and stamps. So if you are out of stamps, you can save yourself a trip to the Post Office by having your own LabelWriter. Good for small business owners, and even individuals or families with hectic schedules.

Dymo specializes in postage, printing, and online stamps. I can’t believe how awesome it is that we live in a world where so many things can be done online! Even postage… Who’d have guessed? Of course, you’ve got to have the right tools to make use of these fantastic options, which is why owning a LabelWriter is such a good idea. That is, if you’re interested in the whole “label craze.” These days, who isn’t? It’s sweeping the nation!

"Several attempts to log on to your account were detected this morning"

Oh crap! That was me! And now they've shut my account down, all because I tried to use it within the scope of reason. Darn my intolerable expectation of normalcy! (I didn't really try to log on…I don't even have an account. I just wanted to make something clear. They didn't say several fraudulent attempts or several suspicious attempts or even several failed attempts. For all we know, those attempts were successful, and done by the account holder.)

How's this for a run-on sentence?:

"You will not be able to access your online account
unless you re-activate your online access
but in order to do so, you will have to confirm your details
by Logging on to your account
to complete the verification process set out for you
before we can retrieve your online access."

Cyber Socialization

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Can you believe how easy it has become to connect with others online? Just a few years ago, computers were for nerds, people with no lives, no social skills. Or so the public thought! Now you can meet people, make friends, even fall in love! Services have sprung up left and right, each claiming to help you connect with compatible singles on a more meaningful level with the top matchmaking site. But which site is the best? can help with that.

I’m not saying is the best dating site. But it has proven itself superior to the now infamous And it does keep a record of all the other dating sites out there. Basically, it’s a repository of dating site information. It ranks sites by category and has articles about dating and site-specific issues. So say eHarmony dumps you, and you need an alternative for your online adventures in love. TruDating lists tons of other dating sites, like

I’ve seen a lot of ads on TV by slamming eHarmony. I don’t know if any of that’s true (get it?), but at least we all have more choices. Just like there are plenty of fish in the sea of dating, there are plenty of dating sites to choose from. And TruDating keeps track of that. So if you’re in the mood for the fastest dates in town, or matches made in cyberspace, or even a dating site that you don’t have to pay a penny for, TruDating could be helpful. Truly, truly, truly.

Trick To Getting The Edge Online

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

I came across a post by Seth Godin, marking expert, called The 7% solution.

He presents the following problem: You're in business. Everyone else is lowering their prices. You must raise yours. What do you do to keep attracting customers, even with the highest prices around?

What could you do to make your blog or website worth visiting, even if you charge all your visitors a fee?

If you can answer that, you know how to achieve the edge online.

The problem Godin presents is a type of scenario that gets you thinking in a different way. When you solve it, you reveal answers to your own questions of, "How do I do better?" and "What should I do differently?" We often already know the answers to these questions, but it is difficult to find them within ourselves without phrasing things just right. Godin's way helps us do that.

Here's another question: If you knew you were going to die if your website didn't reach its goals this month, what would you do? How would you accomplish those goals if your life depended on it?

Sometimes we need to shift our perspective a little before solutions can jump out at us.

There are lots of other questions like these out there. I bet you can think of a few.
