I have got a couple of deep-in-thought, and possibly somewhat controversial, posts bouncing around in the back of my head lately, but those thoughts haven’t quite blossomed into what they need to be yet for me to scribble them down. And honestly, I have been pretty horrifically busy the last few weeks.

Between Win 10 With Lynn stuff, Lucky 13 (the CTP Teams team I’m on) stuff, and a whole lot of other online stuff, it seems I rarely ever leave this chair these days (and have a few times lately fallen asleep in it). And then’s there’s the “other life” stuff offline which seems to keep piling up and up. Just a lot of stuff!

When you get so busy like that, things often seem like they’re spinning out of control a bit. Or a LOT.

And such had been the case lately with keeping up with where I have credits and banner impressions and where I don’t.

Yep, an issue that just about all (if not all) of us messing around with traffic exchanges are highly familiar with. I actually had my own little system that worked for me just fine for many years, and was still working for me pretty well up until fairly recently.

Now, times have changed and my online business activities and related activities have grown to the point where I just really couldn’t keep up very well anymore with my little system I’d been using for years.

I suppose I can’t really say that I’ve made the jump to using TE Command Post instead, since I’ve been a member for a while. Actually I think I joined the first day or the first week it opened – which has now been, what, probably four or five years ago – but that account either disappeared since or I never actually joined it then.

In any case, I signed up anew last year sometime, and am real late to the party as far as making any real use of it. Now that I finally have, I’m finding it more valuable a resource all the time.

I have, though, recently made the switch to becoming Platinum upgraded at TE Command Post – which means I can keep track of my credits, banners, commissions, and other stuff at an unlimited number of traffic exchanges. Which is something I pretty desperately needed ‘cos, man, I have joined a LOT of traffic exchanges since 2007-2008.

So far so good, although because I am a member of so darn many TEs and also because I’ve been so freakin’ busy, I still haven’t managed to find the time to enter all the stuff I need to for all the traffic exchanges I need to into TE Command Post, but I will finish eventually. It’s a lot of work to set it up, somewhat, yep.

On the other hand, the big payoff after doing all that work is going to be fantastic, in that I will be able to see at a glance where I need credits or have credits to use (probably many that I would otherwise have forgotten about).

Now, in the interest of being transparent – the upgrade at TECP is not cheap. Free members can only keep track of ten traffic exchanges, while the regular Silver and Gold monthly upgrades only give you 20 or 50. Granted, 50 traffic exchanges would probably be enough for a lot of people.

But if you log in sometime and see the Platinum offers, I very much recommend you take a close look at and consider them. Not only does going Platinum give you an unlimited number of traffic exchanges to keep track of plus a whole lot of other benefits, but the Platinum monthly with unlimited TEs is actually less than the regular Gold monthly with only 50 TEs. Totally worth it.

If you’re serious about your online business activities within traffic exchanges, and especially if you’re in it for the long haul, my opinion is that TE Command Post is a valuable resource and very much a worthwhile investment – and especially if you’re like me and are a member of umpteen dozen TEs.

(Now if I can just find the time to enter the rest of my stuff into TECP, and all will be easy breezy from there on out!!! It’s coming!)

So check out TE Command Post today if you’re not already a member, and take control of your credits instead of driving yourself crazy trying to keep up with ’em on your own. And Happy Friday the 13th, have a good weekend! :-)
