A New Credit-based auction site I Discovered

I signed up on Listia, after one of my friends posted a comment and a link to it. It is one of the coolest things around. It is a credit-based auction website. You can bid your credits on what someone else is giving away. If you have been on eBay, bid on an item, you know what I mean.

Being a part of Listia can be rewarding. What you do is sign up. Then you will get at least 400 free credits for doing so. There are other ways to get credits. If you list an item to give away, then you will earn a certain amount of credits. Plus, if someone bids on your item and wins it, the credits they bid on transfers to your account. In addition, you can earn XP points and badges for being an active member. Tell your friends about this, especially if you are on Facebook, Twitter, and/or MySpace. If they sign up, they get points, you do too. Plus, if they auction off an item, you also profit from it as well.

When you bid, make sure you have the credits to do so. Sometimes the seller will include free shipping on the item(s) you bid on. Otherwise, the shipping amount is usually low. If you are not registered with Paypal, I recommend doing so.

Have fun!

I joined Swagbucks

I joined a real neat & exciting website called Swagbucks. You earn Swagbucks for doing various activities, such as taking polls, blogging, searching the web and so on...

What I did was copy the widget that Swagbucks call the "Swidget." I am testing this one out to see if it works. Soon I'll know.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="text/javascript">if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget('b6990e3b-e7b6-476a-9432-42cf47c6c251');</script><noscript>Get the <a href="">Swidget 1.0</a> widget and many other <a href="">great free widgets</a> at <a href="">Widgetbox</a>! Not seeing a widget? (<a href="">More info</a>)</noscript>

Change to my blog

I have now changed my blog from just reviewing books to anything (just about) for now. I will include a blog for input on books & articles read & recommended.

Introducing Christy

Hello to all my readers,

This is my first blog, specifically for books or other material that I enjoyed reading and recommend to you. Some will be books; others will be magazine articles. Others may even be articles from the internet on others' websites as well.

My favorite topics and genres are end time biblical prophesy, gardening, crafts, counseling to name a few. If you want to know great places where to find these, I will do my best to help you; I am likely to provide a link for you to click.

Last year, I moved up to Washington state to live by my family and check out better opportunities up here. I work at a local huge garden retail center, which is known up & down the state for its beautiful hanging baskets and pumpkins in the fall.  I just love it up here. Yeah it rains a lot up here, but I don't mind it too much; I'm used to it. Plus where I'm from hardly gets rain, so I'm being compensated. Hehehe

Anyhoo...I hope you enjoy my blog. Don't be afraid to post...just don't be rude; there's enough of that crap in the world these days as it is.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy reading!
