I have recently had a lot of experience with and I'm here to tell you it's not been at all positive. 

From a buyer standpoint
I ordered 6 charicature drawings: 1 received 1 I was happy with, 1 I thought was sub-par, 1 that was nothing like I wanted and then after waiting over a week 3 were canceled by the artist who took other jobs ahead of mine.

I ordered 1 light switch cover which was late and I canceled and 1 pair of earrings which FINALLY arrived 2 weeks late.  So the track record on buying things was very bad I give it a 1 star rating.

From a selling standpoint
They take 1 dollar off the top so you are working for 4.00 per gig.  The buyers will work you to death!  I had 34 articles in que for one person and she would never aske before she just ordered finally when she ordered a gig that i allow myself 29 day s for and demanded in 24 hours, I quit writing for her.

Another is a guy wanted me to write 5 star reviews for health products I've never tried!  When I wrote one on chia seeds but was honest stating the research I had found on it causing stomach pains, he started threatening me and told me to take the review off. Which I did and I also refunded and contacted fiverr myself on him as well as emailing amazon.

I think everyone should know on fiverr you can pay people for positive amazon reviews, squidoo likes, facebook fans, etc. I think it's very unethical because they have no idea about the products that's why i wouldn't put my name on something that wasn't honest the product causes a potential problem and I don't want someone to buy it because of me and then my rep goes down.

Not only does fiverr take a dollar off the top but they also charge you when you have the money transfered to your pay pal account too!  Oh and if you buy off the site and the seller cancels they don't return your money to pay pal you have a credit that has to be used on the site!


Wednesday, March 13, 2013 is a wonderful website with a lot of great content for the traveler.  From blog posts with valuable tips and links to other websites that can save you time and money on all your travel reservation needs to lists of top destinations and great things to do when you visit.  The videos are wonderful too and they really make this site different than other travel sites I’ve visited in the past.

I chose just two of the popular destinations listed on the homepage and the suggested attractions were ones I had never heard of and not in a bad way, it actually made me really want to visit these locations!  The writers for this site really know how to find fun and interesting places for you to visit on your travel adventures and they share the information in such a way that you almost want to start packing and get on the road!

The site also has links to valuable discounts powered by groupon that can save you a lot of money on great attractions for your trip.  You can also search for hotels right from this site, the creator definitely knew how to bring together all the elements you would possible need when planning a truly amazing trip.  I am really glad I was introduced to this site and it will become one of the tools I use in planning my own trips in the future.

10 day weight loss plan

10 Day Weight Loss Plan

This wonderful program was originally marketed to brides to be to help them lose those few pounds before the big day, but it’s great for ALL women and I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to try it for the last 10 days.  One of the really great things is that this program was developed by a chiropractor, Dr. Glickert who had seen diet and workout plans fail many women and he realized that the types of plans on the market just weren’t going to work for them.  Dr. Glickert admits that no plan is going to work for every woman he understands that there is no cookie cutter woman but he does say that this plan will work for the majority when followed properly and I really believe that is true.

His answer is as simple as changing the way you eat and letting the fat you already have stored burn itself off.  Makes sense right?  It really does work!  In the 10 days that I’ve been using the plan I’ve lost a clothing size and can fit into a pair of pants I haven’t been able to for a while.  I plan to continue on with this simple diet as once you get started it’s really easy to follow and you start to actually even feel better!  Another great thing about this program is that the creator actually tried and succeeded in the research phase, he didn’t just throw it out on the market with lots of empty promises.

The first couple of days that I was on the plan I had some headache issues, so I contacted Dr. Glickert and he advised me to drink some coffee or tea that the caffeine would help offset the changes in my body to my new eating habit, and he was right.  It has been smooth sailing since and I really have seen and felt great results!  And it’s great to know that Dr. Glickert is just an email away if I need him.

I just had the opportunity to view a wonderful site called  I bet you’re looking at the screen wondering; what the heck is an AudioDrop?  They are a crazy concoction of full casts that take you on a 10-15 minute wild ride into the imagination.  These audiodrops contain very original characters in the most wonderful universes.  You can just tell the cast doing each skit is having a blast and they want their audience to get swept into the fun of what they are doing. 

These wonderful stories are 89 cents each and it easily downloads to your computer for your enjoyment.  There is something for every taste from westerns to superhero to comedy and drama, if you want to be entertained, you NEED to visit this site and try AudioDrops and as the creator will remind you….They’re not Audio Books, They’re AudioDrops!

I think you will find once you start visiting this site you will become so involved with the characters that you will have to come back again and again to see how their stories progress.  So….GO!  Get on the site and start listening!

Thursday, February 28, 2013 a nerds best friend is a hot new site for bloggers, businesses and just anyone who likes sharing what they think or what they do with the world.  By sharing you can become a new industry expert that people will check out when they need help with topics you are knowledgeable about.  This site also offers up chances to earn money for what you already do online! Even getting others do join can earn you money.  You also connect the social profiles you have already established, which is different at least from the sites I’ve used before.  Another great thing is all the promotional opportunities that the site provides it’s a great source for businesses looking to expand in the social networking market.  Publishers and businesses for instance can really get the information out there and they can connect with bloggers who already write in the same industry to reach even more people.  I believe this website has the potential to be invaluable to just about any business in any market, I know I’m glad I signed up and I’m looking forward to seeing what all I can do.

This Nerds TV rundown..the good, the bad and the stupid

Ok, so I probably watch more tv than I should, but I am generally multi-tasking when I do so frankly who cares?  But I have found some shows that I think are simply awsome while I have seen some that should just give it up and go off the air and spare everyone the time of having to switch channels.

The bachelor/ette-simply put who doesn't love a good train wreck?
Castle-Nathan Fillion is a street savy writer working with the local police dept, great show!
Hawaii Five-0- this updated version stars alex oloughlin as steve mcgarret, makes a hot cop
Dancing with the stars-they are announcing the new cast on tuesday cant' wait
Face off-syfy reality show where you get to see stage makeup come to life.
Dance moms-these girls are wonderful little dancers and abbys the woman you love to hate
Big Bang Theory-to true nerds the name says it all, greatest show ever
Perception-interesting plot
Elementary-who doesn't love sherlock holmes
Once Upon A Time-interesting take on the world of fairy tales
Shark Tank
Malibou Country
Last man Standing
Rizoli and Isles
Criminal Minds

16 and pregnant-really we need more shows about knocked up teens, aren't we glorifying it a bit?  I'm not condeming the teens for their predicament, but why give the a show?  What are we teaching?

teen moms-teaches girls that acting irresponsibly will get the fame and medicaid, I'm tired of working my butt off going to a job every day just to have girl popping out babies like they're pop in fresh and sitting on their butts with better insurance than i can afford for myself because I'm too busy paying for medicaid out of my checks.

honey boo boo-sweet kid, horrible idea for a show

toddlers and tiaras- did we learn nothing from jean benet?

black out-proves stupid people will do stupid things for 15 minutes of fame.

All the Why people kill shows-Why don't we just write a how to manual and hand it out to anyone who has a problem with anyone?

Ok that's my two cents I'm sure some will agree and some won't.  If you have a problem with anything I've said, let me tell you how to fix it.  Go to the very top of this sceen, there are two options.  The red X or the blue arrow, don't let the space time continum hit you in the glutious maximus on the way out:)
