I haven’t done the Thursday Thirteen in a long time. I’ll have to check out tomorrow where the original posting comes from. For my Thursday Thirteen I want to show you some sites that are great for moms, families or me!
1. 60 Second Break – It’s a place for women to take a breather from their daily lives and share stories about things that frustrate them and things that make being a woman worthwhile. I think they have some kind of story contest going on right now too. Go share your story.
2. Borden Win Free Groceries for a year. You have to go and enter this. FREE Groceries for a year.
3. Dole Make me a chef – By entering your essay you can win the experience of a lifetime.
4. Goal For It – This is a great site to use to track chore requirements. Children can learn computer skills while filling in progress of their chores. I actually like this site. There aren’t any requirements to use the site and it’s free. In fact, grown-ups can use the site to set goals for themselves as well, but they do have a special kids section that I wanted to highlight for parents.
5. E-poll Survey Site – This is a survey site that shows you movies and commercials then you give your opinion of the ads.
6. SurveySavvy – I haven’t used this one a whole lot. Back in January I made some money here.
7. MyPoints – This is one of the best points programs out there. You can rack up points with purchases, printing coupons, redeeming coupons, taking surveys. It is pretty much the only one I am doing right now.
8. Swagbucks – If you haven’t started using Swagbucks you should. This is another way to get points. You can get points even faster than on MyPoints. All you do is search and refer friends. You can get tons of prizes with your points. I haven’t cashed in yet, but I know I can get a couple Amazon Gift Cards and I hardly use it. I forget. I’m too busy with my blog. 😉
9. OLX Free Classifieds – is an internet company based in New York, NY and Buenos Aires, Argentina. The OLX website hosts free user-generated classified advertisements for urban communities around the world and provides discussion forums sorted by various topics. OLX gained prominence upon announcing a partnership with Friendster, the popular social networking website. The story was covered by dozens of media publications, including the New York Times, and was a topic of debate among bloggers. The company was co-founded in March 2006 by Internet entrepreneurs Fabrice Grinda and Alec Oxenford. Fabrice previously founded Zingy, a mobile ringtones company that sold to For-Side for $80 million in May 2004. Alec previously founded DeRemate, a leading online auction website in Latin America. DeRemate sold to MercadoLibre.com, an eBay affiliate, in November 2005. Alec is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s List of Young Global Leaders.
10. Wiki– Yes there is hardly a day that goes by that we don’t go Wikipedia for information.
11. TGDaily – I had to ask my husband for some help because I was having a hard time coming up with thirteen website. So here is one that he loves to read daily. He gets a lot of his tech updates here. He keeps up on technology.
12. Amazon – we love to window shop as a family and they have an associate program where you can make money on your blog. You can also use those points from swagbucks and mypoints.
13. Partnership Plus – Do you like to buy clothes, this site pays you to find out what you purchased clothing wise.
