Lynn M Dot Net

Any idiot can do what I do to make $ online. It's not rocket surgery, it's cake. Also, I like pie.

As you probably are aware if you’re very active at all in the TE community, I give away stuff regularly – credits and other free advertising from bunches of traffic exchanges, as well as some cash prizes (thanks to very generous sponsors like the TimTech gang and Tony Tezak) – via my other site, Win 10 With Lynn.

Here’s something you probably didn’t know…

If you enter for the Daily Prizes via Twitter very often, or have played or attended the weekly Traffic Break Trivia much, there’s a very good chance you have inadvertently wound up with some extra credits or banners and texts at one time or another at any number of traffic exchanges in our community that rotate external prize pages for their TE in the surf.

You know the ones – the Legacy group of sites, TE Racing League, Cup of Traffic, Surf Skeleton, Hit Funnel, DoubleNice Traffic, Bondsman, and others show external prize pages that give away credits, banners and texts in the surf at other traffic exchanges, and you’ve probably entered your username in them plenty of times while surfing and gotten those prizes.

Well, what happens sometimes is that I’ll be surfing after I’ve distributed usernames to my various sponsors for prizes from Win 10 With Lynn, but I’ll forget that I still have one of those winners’ usernames in my copy/paste cache…

And instead of pasting MY username in the box to get the prize from whatever TE’s external prize page I’m on, without realizing it I’ll paste the username of some person who won one of my prizes in the box, ‘cos THEIR username is still in my cache… and usually don’t realize I’ve done it until it’s too late and I’ve already clicked the submit button.

And if their username at that TE is the same as their username at whatever TE they won through me from (which it probably usually is the same name, most people have the same usernames everywhere), they’ll get the external prize page prize instead of me. Which is, you know, fine, just one of those happy accidents for the unknowing prize recipients, I reckon.

Usually when I start surfing, the first time I come across an external prize page and put my username in the box, I’ll highlight and copy it so I can just paste it in again and again every time I come across another external prize page. But yeah, sometimes I forget.

This phenomenon also occurs sometimes with CTP XP, now that several traffic exchanges have XP prize pages in the surf as well – Click Your Face Off, Cup of Traffic, Bondsman, and probably some more I can’t think of off the top of my head all have XP pages in their surf these days.

If your CTP username is the same as most of your other usernames, and you enter or play for any of my Win 10 With Lynn prizes very often – then yeah, you’ve probably gotten some XP accidentally from me for the same reasons as above.

It’s not a big deal to me, really – I correctly log in for most of those prizes with my own username plenty enough – but I get a chuckle sometimes when I realize what I’ve done, having someone else’s username in my cache when those external prize pages and XP pages come around in the surf.

And then I wonder sometimes if the “accidental recipients” ever wonder where that extra 250 or 350 or 500 banners and texts, or extra 10 or 50 or 100 or whatever credits came from that they didn’t know they had.

And if you did ever wonder – well, now you know!

P.S. So have you joined Lords of Lothar yet?

This new traffic exchange (and the ONLY one that is not only a TE but also an RPG) is the latest thing from the Goettman brothers and hottest thing around the TE community these days, and my Brian is now completely and totally HOOKED on it.

If you’re not a member yet, check it out now (you’ll technically be joining under Brian, but it’s our account) and prepare to enjoy your new addiction!

 

 



So hiya, hey there, and hola and all that. I wish I had something extraordinarily earth-shaking to post about this week, but I got nothing, as they say, really.

I think I am still experiencing the after-effects of an extended CTP is 3 badge-hunting hangover – that last day of the hunt just about killed me. I wound up with 170 badges out of 203, and by my calculations probably could have made it to somewhere between 190 and 196 if I had really gone for it.

I started out the first week thinking I’d try to go for the win, then decided I wasn’t gonna fool with any of the lengthy/difficult badges the second week, and then the third week decided I’d try to keep going for it again – too late in the game, though. Ah well, I wouldn’t have passed the grand prize winner even if I had stuck with it the whole three weeks tho (congrats Elina!).

And I am living in an iceberg this week, apparently. My little part of the South which rarely sees much snow in the winter got slammed with 4-5 inches of solid ice this week, then topped with about an inch or so of snow. Since we rarely get such things, the community’s mostly still paralyzed except for the main roads.

I owe Janelle Pineau a t-shirt, and have been a slug about getting it to the post office to ship to Canada, but it definitely is not going to make it through our little river of ice and slush this week. Maybe this weekend!

And my back door is stuck, which has ticked off my dogs immensely as they can’t understand why they have to squeeze through it to get in and out of the house. Everything should have melted today, but since the sun never really came out, I’m still surrounded by more or less and enormous block of ice. Awesome!

What I do have worth sharing today is this super fantastic awesome wrap-up post from Tom Wacker at the CTP is 3 blog. Many thanks and much admiration to Tom and Sunny Suggs for all the hard work they do with the badge hunt blogs every time a hunt comes around – the daily updates are always a tremendous help for badge hunters to keep on track, and not miss stuff!

The other reason I don’t have much Dot Net-wise to post about this week is because I’ve spent a good bit of the last couple of days making some cool new additions and modifications and changes to that other little project I got going last month called Win 10 With Lynn.

If you are tired already of seeing all those video prize pages around in the surf, I hate to tell you this… but there are more coming! Bwahahaha… :-)

So feel free to check out what’s new over at W10WL for now (like credits prizes, new cash prizes, and there may be even more coming soon). And hey, if you don’t enter, you can’t win anything!

I’ll be back bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (and hopefully fully recovered from CTP is 3) next week!
