Especially when they find posts that have two very unrelated post topics combined into one search. As I’ve worked in the search engine optimization industry this year, I’ve […]

Pineapple Teriyaki Wheat Thins??? Seriously?

Last night I dreamed that I was asked by Nabisco to review their new (not real) Pineapple Teriyaki Wheat Thins on my new review blog, Nicole Rates It. In the dream (not in real life) I was pregnant and I thought they were the best cracker ever. I downed a whole box in one sitting. […]
