If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also sometimes include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world. NOTE: you have to visit the actual website to see the embedded video – it may not appear in your email. Just click on the title of the email to see it…
Well I have a great solution for the sponsored posts. There is a tool I installed on the blog that will block sponsored posts from showing up in the RSS feed so regular readers will be spared from them. Plus I’ll put the disclaimer on them so they are clearly identified and will stick to running them on weekends. We’ll see how it goes, but hopefully this is a good solution for everyone and thanks for all the support! Of course you get to enjoy in the revenues generated by the extra contests that will be running in 2010 – starting with the Bourne Trilogy on Blu-Ray giveaway. Click here to enter the contest.
