So this is a fairly new site that I just started using. You go and watch commercials and get a certain amount per ad. I started about 2-3months ago and have gotten $15 so far. You start at being able to earn $5 a month, which isn't a lot. If you have people to invite you can get up to $10 a week. While it is only $20-$40 a month that still is enough for some gas or just to put aside for emergencies.

The bad side is that you have to have the window open so you can't be doing other things while watching. Also, there aren't many different ads so you'll be watching the same thing. I recommend going at the beginning of the week so you can build up ads to watch.



So I have been a member of Crowdtap for a few months and was very discouraged at the fact that I was getting no where. It is a great site to earn some extra cash, if you can get a large following and have some people join. Well I had been at $2 for months until a nice lady told me a little tip. If you are needing some people to rate, you can always use a different browser to pick up the slack. It was almost overnight that I went from $2 all the way to $19.50. I highly recommend joining the program and using that little tip to help earn some extra money. While you obviously won't get rich, you can get a few bucks for gas!

So if you love to read books and enter into giveaways then you should check out Goodreads. Goodreads has tons of giveaways for new books that you can read and review in the privacy of your own home. If you are chosen then you are sent the book, by the publisher or author, to your home to read at your leisure. Now the whole deal is for you to read the book and then write a review. The kicker for writing a review? The more reviews you write the more chance you get of getting picked as a winner.

I personally have been a member for a few months and have already won about 25 books. I am working on reading all these books and have read about half of them so far. Some of the books haven't even come out to market yet, so your say does really make a difference. They have something for everyone there from children's all the way up to adult (erotic). I have won all types of books and love reading something I normally wouldn't have picked for myself.

If you are looking to join then please add me as a friend and maybe something that I review will peak your interest. Goodreads - Sally Guillen

Going in a New Direction...

So it's 6am in the morning and I'm sitting here trying to find some direction in my life. I haven't been able to get a job and have been entering into giveaways like crazy. While I have won some really great items, it isn't enough to keep going. So I wonder if maybe I could become a real true to life blogger. It's a huge thing that's for sure and tons of responsibility as well, but I think as long as I continue to look forward I can do it.

I have been in a rut now for about a year ever since I left my last job. While it was a hard decision it's one that I don't regret. I love reading, writing, sewing, crafting, and cooking so why not make a business out of it? Now I already do sew and love doing it. Sewing helps me to relax and be creative. Making something that another human being takes pleasure in and loves is a great feeling. Selling an item that I made makes me so proud and excited, nothing better really.

So today I've made a decision to go in a new direction with my blog. It'll be filled with things that I like and enjoy and I'll try and keep it fun and exciting. While I love all my coupon buddies out there I can't see myself doing a coupon type blog. So yea stay tuned for some really great stuff....well at least I think it'll be great!

Oh and I'll keep my old blog posts because I'd like to see where I came from.
