Blogging sites

I found a site called Technorati and was able to find tons of interesting new blogs to read from this site. I still have not figured out how to get my blog listed on their site though.

This was the messege I got from them:
Jun 28, 2010. We could not find the claim token ZHQ8QP4WK234 in any posts in your feed. Please make sure that you have entered it correctly in a post body and that the token appears in the feed whose URL you have given us. Once you are sure we should be able to find the claim token, use "Update Site Feed URL" so that we can check again.

~I'll assume I'm supposed to post the claim token # somewhere, so hopefully this will be good enough.

I had tried "dreamhost" for about 2 hours...and ended up get charged $9.99 for it.
I have a few of Leo Babauta's books on minimalism and a book called "Blogging for Dummies", so maybe soon I will figure out how to get more people reading my stuff.


Payday was June 30th (3rd payday for June)
worked~68.73 hours
Take home pay~$255.53
$127.76 went into my savings account and as of today, I have about $325 saved in that account right now. Saving money sorta reminds me of the old tale "The Grasshopper & The Ant". The grasshopper would be someone who spends the whole paycheck on fun stuff or materialistic stuff and the ant would be the person trying to save as much as they can.

The state of NH is still taking money out for 3 kids, even though Kevin is now 18 and graduated from high school. It was supposed to be 40% for 3 kids before and now it should be 30% for 2 kids, but NH is not very good with math. Time to get my papers together to send to NH....well it seems that NH is just a bit slow. I got a letter in the mail (after payday, but dated before payday) that from now on NH will be taking out $162.

Seeing as I will have some extra money I contacted Qwest to have wi-fi hooked up in my room, and it finally got hooked up today. Now I have to pay $69 for the modem (a 1-time fee) and $25 a month for 6 months, then it will cost $45 a month...not counting all taxes/fees.
