Win An Ipod Touch

777 Dragon Online Casino is giving you a chance to win a brand new Ipod Touch.  I absolutely love my Touch.  I use it mostly for apps and music.  I recently installed some educational apps on it for my daughter.  It's a fun way for her to keep up on math and reading while school is out for the summer. 

I was excited to hear that 777 Dragon was giving away an Ipod because I also love to play poker.  After a long day of working, kids and housework, I love to chill out by playing some poker.  It relaxes me and takes my mind off any of the day's worries.

If poker isn't your game, don't worry.  777 Dragon Online Casino offers all kinds of casino games.  You can play cards, dice, roulette, slots and many more.  Don't forget to check out their current promotions such as a 200% match on deposits.  

So let's go play and win.  Simply enter using the Rafflecopter tool below - grab as many points as you can to maximize your chances of winning! The winner will be announced 15 July 2012... T&C's apply.

What's your favorite casino game?  Leave a comment below.  Do you prefer dice or cards?  Good luck everyone!

Best Social Networking Site

This is a highly talked about topic and results vary. It also depends on what is the new hot site on the scene. For example, all the recent Pinterest tutorials and e-books that have been flooding my social network streams.

I like checking out stats.  They can be interesting and helpful as long as you don't go overboard.  I believe stats can be used as a guideline, but not absolute rules to live by in achieving more traffic to your blog or website. 

I went to my Google Analytics account to see my blog's best performing social sources.  Below are my stats for 2012 so far.  I am going to start checking them for every month to see how they vary.  I am interested to see if they change due to different variables.  How does content type, amount of followers and  posting frequency change the results.
