Investing in a Thermos!

Now that the weather has turned cold, I'm tempted every day to buy coffee on my way to school. Now one cup of coffee might not seem like a big deal, but at $1.20 a day, it adds up to $6 a week, or $24 a month! To avoid this budget pitfall, I started making hot tea in my thermos and taking that to school instead of buying coffee every day. I make tea, because I don't have a coffee maker...Yet. Tea is relatively inexpensive and soothing on a cold morning. I drink it during my first class of the day and it fortifies me for my second class.:P
A thermos can be useful in other ways, as well. You could heat up some soup to take to work, or pack some chicken salad for a sandwich. A thermos could also be used to bring a refreshing cold drink to work, or school during the Summer.
I find that a thermos really helps me stay on track as far as going out for lunch, or coffee. I really just can't afford to spend money on those kinds of things, but if I were hungry or cold, it would be only too easy to rationalize making a pit stop at dunkin doughnuts!

You also might think of investing in a reuseable water bottle. If you're away from home and have a thirst attack, you can end up spending quite a bit of money for water!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a
little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting
with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Right now it looks like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there
right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
But just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably
be one of the best in its field. Great blog!

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
