Get Paid to Write Rants for Us !

"Getting Paid To Complain!"

On January 15th a site opened that allowed people to get paid by ranting. They pay $5.00 for each rant that is accepted. The rant can be any length and is meant to have fun. Where else would you be able to get rid of the monkey on your back and get some cash for it? Here I have listed some pointers (Do’s and Don’ts). I have written a few and have had one entry accepted.


  • Submit rants on topics that include current events, politics, work, school, people, local businesses and unfair practices, consumer products, and daily life.
  • Submit new and unique content as often as you like. There is no limit to how many rants you can send in and get paid for.
  • Submit satirical rants. We love humor and we’ll pay you for it too.
  • Include supplementary links, multimedia, quotes, and sources if possible. These will greatly enhance the quality of your submission and the likelihood that we will accept it.


  • DO NOT submit plagiarized material. We check all submissions for plagiarized content. If we find that you are submitting plagiarized content, we may filter out submissions made with your email address.
  • DO NOT submit false material. In rare cases we may withhold using your rant if we need to verify it (i.e. in the case of a rant about a deceptive business practice). We may also request more information from you before posting your rant and paying you.

They do pay anywhere from $5.00 to $10.00 per rant accepted. Here are a list of topics:

News & Current Events, Politics, Science & Technology, Funny/Bizarre, Workplace, School, Daily Life.

I Won, I Won!!!!

As I'm sure I mentioned before, somewhere, I don't generally do the "drawing" type surveys, where you are entered for a chance to win something, unless I'm bored, or I have won from the company before. Every now and then, however, I'll do one... and fortunately, I did one for Discovery-Kitchen, and found out I won a hundred bucks... and, boy, do I need it right now! lol

I haven't been online today, 'cause I'm just feeling terrible... went to the eye doc yesterday, got my eyes dialated, the whole bit, and then had to immediately go to the dentist, where they pulled a tooth, and gave me Ibuprofen for the pain... what jerks! lol So, I've been in bed most of the day, feeling terrible, but am trying to get myself around, as I've got plans this weekend, that I really don't want to cancel.

Anyway, my email sure cheered me up, and I hope it gives you all some inspiration too... real people DO win these things! Yea!!!

Hope y'all have a great weekend! I'll probably be away 'til Sunday evening or so, but will be back, as always! lol

Another Cool One to Earn Some $$

Dear Friend,

I found something that I think you will like. They are trying to convince consumers like us that we should be the ones controlling our own data and selling our own attention, not third parties like broadcasters, newspapers, and spammers. By creating a MeFile, I now control what ads I see and when I see them. Best part - I am selling my attention directly to interested advertisers, for real money. That's right, I get paid for giving them my attention. I can use the funds to buy music and video online, donate to charities, give to my favorite blogs and websites, or keep the change myself and do whatever I want with it.

It's real. They pay. You should check it out.

Click this link to sign up. My MeFile ID, baybay, in the "Referral Code" will tell them I sent you.

Join Here

Take care,

Focus Groups... A Great Way to Make Quick Cash!

I just got back from San Fran a little bit ago, with an extra $115 in my pocket! How did I do it? I went in and gave my opinions on computers. I spent a little over an hour, in a small group of people, talking about what we like and don't like, what we look for when purchasing a computer, stuff like that... and at the end, they handed us each an envelope, containing $115!

Just a few days ago, I did one, for a little under an hour, and walked out with an extra $75.

Living in Oklahoma, I didn't have access to a lot of market research firms in my area, but moving to California, those market research companies are quickly becoming a huge benefit! I have done surveys online for years, and a few online focus groups, where they have several people in something like a chat room, discussing brands, products and services, and what they could do to improve them. There is definitely good money in it, but I have to tell ya, I'm loving these quick, casual in person focus groups!!!

So, how do you find live focus groups? The main place I check is Craigslist. If you go to your city, or one you would be willing to travel to for focus groups, you go to the job listing section, and click on "etc" jobs. That is where many research companies tend to post upcoming groups. You can also do a search in your phonebooks, or on a site, like, and find market research companies listed in your area. Call, and ask to be included in their database, and they will call you when they have studies needing people who fit your demographics (age, work industry, etc.).

The best way, however, to find out about these events, seems to be through networking. Join the groups on Gather, dedicated to making money at home or online. People in the know share tips and information on great companies, which ones to avoid, etc. That is how I really got started, earning a decent income from surveys. I have a very small group of friends that I share info with, and we all stay connected, sending any new sites, info, etc. It always helps to have friends "in the know".

Anyway, I was just really excited about tonight's group, and especially the cash I earned, and wanted to share with you all. It is a really fun way to earn some spare cash, and it's great for those who want something with a flexible schedule, because you can decide which ones you want to participate in, and never HAVE to do one.

Good luck everyone, and Happy Earning!
