While I was rally driving through the Tim Hortons parking lot at 7 a.m. this morning, I had a ‘Blogger Moment’.
I was driving like a madwoman wanting to lead the pack of 7 vehicles coming from 3 different directions – all trying to position ourselves ahead of each other in the drive thru lineup. Timmy’s fans are *huge* in Canada. No matter what time of day or night, or where you work, someone near you has a cup of Tim Hortons in hand.
The drive thru is always busy (ESPECIALLY in the morning) and *No One* wants to get stuck behind the Fine Fella ordering 6 XL double/doubles and 6 toasted Everything Bagels loaded with cream cheese.
I have my $1.55 in hand, ready to do the quick coffee/cash hand off/carry on driving/ exchange that the Tim Hortons drive thru staff and I have worked down to a fine art. Getting stuck behind a Fine Fella just screws that up :lol:.
I did pretty well in the rally drive, but only achieved 3rd place in the lineup. So while I’m waiting, I have a Blogger’s Aha! moment.
How many hundreds and thousands of blogs are out there that link to the author’s Amazon Wish List? (btw that’s not a link to my wish list)
Or the always popular that links to the blog author’s PayPal account for visitors to donate funds?
For Tim Hortons addicts like me (maybe it’s a Canadian thing?), and the other rally drivers pulling into its parking lots around the nation, how groovy would it be if Tim Hortons setup a reloadable cash card with an online account url that we could link to?
- Tim Hortons offers a reloadable cash card for $10
- I buy it and am able to use it for $10 worth of Timmy’s good stuff (spent in 2 or 3 days)
- The cash card has an online account ID that I can setup on any and all of my blogs. Visitors can click my Timmy’s link and using PayPal, buy me a cup of coffee (money is credited to my handy dandy Tim Hortons reloadable cash card).
Timmy’s addicts around the blogosphere upload their links, someone buys a blogger a good cup of coffee once in awhile, and Tim Hortons gets itself a whole lot of advertising for – get this – FREE!
Here’s the best part – I’m serious! 😆
