  1. Hello. I’m very delighted I found your web site, I really found you by error, while I had been looking around Bing for something else, Anyway I am here now and would certainly want to thank you for a wonderful blog posting and a all round interesting web site (I furthermore like the theme/design). I’ve bookmarked it and in addition added your RSS feeds.


  2. Hello,

    I’m JD Withrow, and I have a brief editorial question about your website.

    On the homepage, you have a list of links under the heading “Steals and Deals” to a number of shopping links. I’m working with to help them broaden awareness of their comparison shopping search engine, designed to help consumers doing product research on the web. Of particular interest regarding Become, is the blue Research button that powers a set of reviews based on the query. Last June, was selected as Best Search & Comparison Site by the Sloan Center for Internet Retailing at the University of California, Riverside. We hope that is a good fit in your list of sites.

    Would you be willing to look at, and include a link to it if you believe it is merited?

    Should you need anything I’d be happy to reply to an email.

    Thanks for your time!

    Best Regards,
