I just posted on my Foreclosure 101 Blog about a family that managed to save their home from foreclosure by putting up a website and asking for donations! (So far they have received over $10,000 in donations!)
While this is very good news some things in the article stood out to me. The first was that the mother had said that she was determined that foreclosure of her home was NOT going to happen! She had made up her mind and she had made it come true!
The second thing was the mere fact that they had put up a website to ask for donations - which is something that I have talked a lot about in this blog!
Personally I was very dis-heartened when AOL discontinued its webpage hosting for its members (which I am one of!) but there are still hosting sites online where you can put up a website for free! There is also still Blogger.com where you can create a blog for free as well!
I highly applaud this family's effort and I hope it encourages everyone that where there is a will there is a way!

Don't know who or what Twitter is?
Take a look at the side of this blog. On the left side column scroll down until you see the pink-colored box that has my Twitter updates on it! You'll see the things that I have posted over the past several weeks!
This is what Twitter is! It's sort of like a "memo-pad" kind of thingie where you can let people know what you are doing!
Here is a link to my own Twitter page!
It seems Twitter is growing! And they now need to hire more people! So if you think that this is something that may interest you then visit their website (at the link below) to find out more!
Here is an excerpt from their site:
"Though we're small, we offer the things you'll find at a big company—like competitive salaries and full benefits. We even have an HR department (her name is Krissy), if you have questions about your 401k, flex spending, health, dental, vacation, stock options, and all that stuff. Plus, everyone gets a meaningful stake in the company's long-term success."
