Yay. I will tell you that charging for Times Select caused me to stop reading their online paper. I know at $50 a year, some thought it was a bargain. But at FREE, how could it be any less of a bargain?
Apparently, the NYT was not making money with this scheme. Here's to a sound business decision.
Nice reviews of two must-read econ books.
So I signed up for BlogRush with the hope of driving more targeted traffic my way. Will it work? I don't know? Is it worth a shot? Maybe. Will I offend more real and potential readers with one more ad? Perhaps.
That is not my intention. I hope to derive more readers, a more active dialog about today's issues, and, to be completely honest, a little more cash. I'm not here to make a fortune in the blogosphere, but wouldn't it be nice to get a little change for inspiring others to think about what's going on in the world of personal finance, investing, and money hacks?
How does it work? Basically, two ways. You install the BlogRush widget. You get one credit each time the widget loads. This means, that within the network, if I get 100 pageviews today, my blog gets "published" in other BlogRush widgets 100 times today.
I also get credit if you sign up. (See all the links in this post?) Sheesh!
If your blog gets 500 pageviews, I get 500 credits. It's like a giant Ponzi scheme, only it appears to be made of real money! :)

Some of my favorites:
- "Never ask a barber if you need a haircut."
- "I don't try to jump over 7-foot hurdles: I look for 1-foot hurdles that I can step over."
- "When a management team with a reputation for brilliance joins a
business with poor fundamental economics, it is the reputation of the
business that remains intact."
