Ads of the World

Written by Scrivs on June 28, 2006

I love pictures and Ads of the World does not disappoint with its beautiful homepage showcasing a number of ads found around the world. Not only is this a blog, but it is also an advertising archive, forum and news page discussing great advertising work worldwide. Updates are a little slow at the moment due to the birth of a new baby in the family (CONGRATULATIONS), but there is enough content on the site to keep you occupied for days.

Welcome Ivan.

About Heroes

Written by Scrivs on June 28, 2006

I love me some comics. When I was younger there are only two things I spent my money on: baseball cards and comic books. Unfortunately, my interest grew faster than my piggy bank and I had to put my obsession away. I still have crates of comics hidden away in a closest at my parents’ house and one day I will go scope them out. Hopefully I don’t get all caught up in them again because I don’t know if my bank account (now much bigger than when I was 10) can support it. In any case, I have Dan and Omar to slowly work me back into the comics/toys mix.

Welcome Dan and Omar.

The independent web gives anyone the freedom to start from scratch and make a name for themselves and nobody exemplifies this more than Derek Punsalan. This year I have probably seen his name on the sites I visit more often than any other so I guess it would be justified to say that this man gets around. Well now he will probably get around even more since 5thirtyone is now a member of the Network.

Welcome Derek.

22 Dollars

Written by Mike Rundle on June 28, 2006

Chad Lapa is only 24 years old, however his financial experiences far outweigh his age. Chad has been visiting Casino Niagara for the past 3-4 years, and in that time he’s won enough money to 1) pay off his student loans, 2) buy a $40k luxury sedan, 3) take trips to Europe, and now, 4) play golf seemingly full-time. Chad’s taken a lot of his winnings and poured it into the stock market because, if tradition holds up, his luck and brilliance will make him a lot of money there too. 22 Dollars is his blog exploration into the world of day trading and finance, so give it a look.

Welcome Chad.

Forty Media

Written by Scrivs on June 28, 2006

Last year when we started the announcements of Round 1 sites my friend James Archer had the dubious honor of being announced first. Well guess what? James wanted to keep tradition alive and requested to be announced first and we figured why break up a good thing. Obviously James is no stranger to 9rules, but he decided to remove all his sites and consolidate them into one and therefore he was removed from the Network for a short period of time.

Welcome aboard James, it’s like you never left.
