How to Get Paid Blogging

How to Get Paid Blogging

Set Your Price. Choose your Advertisers. Sign up for SocialSpark!

I have been earning money by blogging with SocialSpark, I write up about a 400  word post about which ever topic/lead I choose to blog about from the topics/leads they give me to choose from. In return I earn points for each post I do and trade them in for cash by paypal or a check. Example today I was given a Quaker Oatmeal post to accept or deny, they give you a few days to post it and the points will be there. It's that simple!

Just last month I earned 15,000 points ($1 each point) $15 just for blogging about a Walgreen's post! Does it get that easier to make money? Once you sign up for SocialSpark they will email you when ever they have leads available. I been receiving like 4 leads a month! They allow you to set what ever price you want to get paid for doing each post and find the leads according to your price! Of course you have to be reasonable! But $15 for doing a 400 word post that takes me about 20mins. to post is well worth it to me. That can be a monthly phone bill or cable bill paid.

So, if you have a blog up and running you can sign up as their taking bloggers to publish for them, you don't have to be a "big-time" blogger!!  

To sign up to start making a commission by blogging about interesting products & services via SocialSpark Sign up here.

Up From Slavery:
In 1860, as the American Experiment threatened to explode into a bloody civil war, there were as many as four hundred thousand slave-owners in the United States, and almost four million slaves. The nation was founded upon the idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The nation would pay a bloody cost for denying that right to more than twelve percent of its population.

But when slavery was first brought to America's shores, this war, and even the nation it tore apart, was centuries in the future. With incredibly detailed historical reenactments, expert commentary and the stories of slavery told through first-hand accounts, this is an epic struggle 400 years in the making. A journey into the past like none other. This is the story of these men and women who by their hands laid the foundation of what would become the most powerful nation on Earth. Join us as we rise...UP FROM SLAVERY.

Maty's All Natural Baby Chest Rub #Review

Maty's All Natural Baby
Chest Rub #Review

Since I was a kid my mother always used a well known brand of vapor rub for my sisters and I when we were sick with the sniffles and congested. She would also pull out the vaporizer to have on through out the night. It worked well but using a vaporizer is something I'd be afraid of using these days after my sisters house burned down from one. To me there just not safe (my opinion). So when I was asked to post a review about Maty's all natural baby chest rub I was kind of hesitant. I tried it anyways and I have to say I'm very impressed! Maty's has won this mommy over with it being all natural, petroleum & menthol free! I'm happy I tried it out!

My son was congested a few days ago with a runny nose, I spread some of the Maty's chest rub on his chest, I only had to use a tiny pinch and it went a very long way. No greasy mess, it just spread very easily.  I did this right before he went to bed for the night. I was shocked in the morning how better he felt. He could breathe better and it didn't leave a loud smell in the room of a chest rub. It's added with soothing notes of lavender and chamomile to calm babies to sleep.  I  liked how It worked and I didn't even use a vaporizer! I tell you I'm in love with Maty's all natural baby chest rub and I defiantly would recommend it to all of my readers.  

Maty's all natural baby chest rub is a two-time award winner and has no harmful side effects.  It's So safe, pediatrician recommended for infants 3 months and older and it's drug free!

Maty's has many natural products, you can check them all out by clicking here.

Love the Moment in Virginia

Love the Moment in Virginia Beach

SocialMoms and the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau has teamed up together to help spread the word about all Virginia Beach has to offer as a vacation destination in a new blogging program and asked for me to participate to share some tips and advice on how to Love the Moment in Virginia Beach this Summer!

Virginia Beach is one of the coolest beaches to visit with your family! With so much to do and so many sites to see you wouldn't want to leave. My family and I visited Virginia Beach last summer and had the time of our life's. I'm so afraid of sharks so I don't usually go into the deep water but the water is so clear on the beach I wasn't afraid. The only thing that scares me are the jelly fish because they sting. I didn't see many like I do at any other beach so it was a relief to be able to swim and not worry about coming across them.

Virginia Beach is so big and many people from all across the world visits with their family and enjoys the view. People are so friendly and welcoming. When looking at the sky it's beautiful during the day or night! The light-blue sky will take your breathe away! Walking along the beach you will see many sandcastles built by many different people.

With so many things to do at Virginia Beach it's so easy to get around with the different trolley's, the trolley's would pick us up from the hotel and drive us to the beach and we would catch it back at night.

The boardwalk is so exciting, there are so many different cafes and shops to visit and buy solveniers from. It's hard to choose which restaurant to eat at because they all have such good food with fair prices. At night is a site to see! On the boardwalk the fireworks are beautiful to see, I love eating the good funnel cake just starring at the different fireworks go up in the sky.

Not only is it fun at Virginia Beach, you will also have a blast at the Virginia Aquarium & Mariene Science Center! You will get to see the seals, turtles, sharks, owls, crabs and many more cute animals.
