  25. Hey Amanda ~ My name is Valarie. I live & work w/ Melody in Guadalajara. She was telling me about your blog today so I decided to take a look. How exciting! I can’t wait to catch up on all of your stuff. Blessings!!!

  26. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  27. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I think this web site is rattling informative ! Continue posting .
