As you can see, the blog got a little bit of a face lift. I added a blog holdings tracker under the title so I no longer have to update the current holdings every post. I can just discuss any changes made. A reader suggested it via my Hub Culture page (If you don't know what Hub Culture is, read the post about it here). Also, you can see that I have accumulated 68.00 Ven (the currency of hub culture), by being an active member of the community. It's worth about 7.50 USD, which isn't enough to buy anything through the site, so the Ven hording will continue.
You'll also note that I am no longer in possession of the 800 MS points I received by searching with Bing (See post below for explanation). I sold them to my friend for 7.50 USD.
With my free cash now over 10$ I decided to try something different than my usual buying and selling of non physical items. I bought 10$ worth of pennies seen below.
I know what you're thinking. Why would I buy pennies? Also, how could I possibly be able to turn a profit by exchanging some paper currency for pennies? I promise that there is a method to my madness! Below are two picture. Do you see any major difference between the two?
