I Signed Up for SocialSpark!

Most of you who read my blog know that I am disabled and that I use my blog as my social outlet for friendship and information on current events. I have also been trying to use it to earn a little money since times are tough and both my husband and I are on Social Security. ('Nuff said.....).

I recently learned about different ways to monetize my blog through my friend Crystal's blog Simply Being Mommy and one of the ways she mentioned was
SocialSpark (I just found up my good friend Maria of Maria's Space has also signed up for Social Spark). This is a site where you can..... are you ready..... get paid to write on your blog about things you love!!! Can you imagine that? It is something I already do, and now I may be able to get paid for it. I was so excited that I couldn't believe it, so I went over to the site to see how to sign up and read it over again. It's true - you can get paid to write on your blog - some posts pay as little at $5 and some pay up to $100. It really depends on the advertiser and their budget, as well as your page rank and writing skills. You get paid via your PayPal account and you can even donate some of your payments to charity. There is of course a code of ethics* to follow, but I wouldn't want to be part of any social organization that wasn't ethical!

If you are interested in making some money by doing what you already love to do on your blog, head on over to SocialSpark to see what it is all about like I did, you may be pleasantly surprised, I know I was and I cannot wait to get started trying to help out my family's financial situation.

Until next time..... Lorie

What a wonderful opportunity! I think anything that we can do to make a little extra $$$ is great :)
When I was bedbound, I was the exact same way-Always looking to make a little extra to help out around the house and maybe buy me a little something.
Good for you taking this chance :D
