Earn cool prizes and $$ just for searching, as usual with Swagbucks!

I've tried all the online earning opps, and been pretty successful with most, but haven't liked most of the search and win sites, as they just don't pay enough. Swagbucks is different though! I've been a member for a couple months, and have already earned over 200 Swagbucks, which can be used for really, really cool prizes, or even Paypal! I downloaded the toolbar, which isn't huge and annoying like some, and just use it for my regular searches, and every day, I get extra bucks! You can also get "free" swagcodes in the toolbar, so it really adds up quickly!

Give it a try, it's easy to cash out for a good Amazon gift card, etc. every couple weeks, and you don't have to work hard to do it!!!

Another birthday has arrived

Well, here in Oklahoma, it's officially my thirty-somethingth :) birthday. Another year gone. It's been a rough one... just lost my Grandfather last week, ended a three year relationship a few months ago, had a lot of rough things happen. But, I guess, it's time to, "officially" start the year over... forget waiting for Jan. 1! I'm declaring the new year NOW!!! lol

Even with the rough year, I do have a lot to be grateful for. I look over at my nine year old, sleeping peacefully, knowing we've got a roof over our heads, and he doesn't have to be worried about my ex being "mean to Mama". My fourteen year old is getting ready for school tomorrow (still, at this late hour, but at least he's great about getting up in the mornings! lol). My daughter and I have grown closer than ever in the past few months. My oldest son... while he's struggling with the peer pressure and every day pressures of being an "almost adult", and at times, driving me completely nuts, he's alive and well, and still a good kid. He loves his Mama.

My father, whom I have always idolized, and I had a rough patch a few months ago, but I thank God for the recent communication I have had with him... as, yes, I can be a very stubborn person at times, but I couldn't imagine life without my "Daddy". My Aunt and I have become closer than we have ever been. I never really got to know her until my few months out in California recently.

My Mom was trying to take time off to come see me for my birthday. Doesn't look like it's going to happen, but just the fact that she was genuinely trying, means the world to me.

Things have been really bleak lately, but then, I do have to really open my eyes to the blessings that I do have in my life, and just thank God. Sometimes, things really do seem so overwhelming, and overbearing, but when I really open my eyes, I do see that, despite all the hardships, I DO have a purpose, and I do have four little ones (not so little anymore) that need and love their Mama, no matter how many mistakes I have made in my life... how could anyone not be grateful for that?!

So... here's to another year... hopefully one that's better, easier, and less painful. Here's to doing my part, to try to have a positive outlook and do whatever I can to make that happen. Here's to being thankful that I am still here, getting to enjoy those special joys that are mine alone.

Happy Birthday to me...

Happy Earning!

InfoPirate: Get Paid to Bookmark Your Website(s)

InfoPirate is a website that allows you to make money for adding "bookmarks" to the site.

This sounds like a pretty cool program for numerous reasons:

Pay is made through Google Adsense, so you will need a Google Adsense account. The way this works is each time the bookmark you submit is viewed an advertisement is placed on it. If the person viewing it clicks the ad, you get 80% of the revenue generated from the click and InfoPirate keeps the rest. 80% of a click isn't a ton of cash; it's likely a penny or two, but if you get only a few clicks a day, you have potential to make $10 or more a month.

Second, you can use it to get backlinks / inbound links to your website(s). When you post a bookmark you not only get one free link for posting the url to your site but you also get a little text box to write a small blurb about the site. The text box accepts html, so you can easily score another 2 links. I suggest making them anchored text keyword links as opposed to just links to your homepage anchored to the name of your site.

Third, it's 100% FREE marketing. So what if you never make a penny from a click; you're still getting free publicity. So why not register for free and list all your sites? It only takes about 2 minutes to list a site. Very basic stuff - name of site, url, blurb then select the catergory for a list of 5 different categories. Nothin' fancy.

Fourth, there's a referral program. If you decide to refer others to InfoPirate you get a percentage of the money they make as a bonus. Referral pay is only 10%. So if one click on your buddy's page earns him $0.10 cents, you earn a penny. Once again, hey, it's free money.

So check out InfoPirate and add your sites today. It's a win-win situation. And there's no maximum to how many sites you can submit. There also doesn't appear to be an "approval process", so your sites are instantly published as soon as you submit them.

Sign up for InfoPirate here!

If you appear to qualify based on your answers, a Focus Forward representative will contact you with additional questions.

Tons of Surveys, Points Add Up Quick!

Well, if I must recommend one company that sends TONS of surveys, for maximum earning opportunities, that would definitely be SayNation. I, often, have several surveys each day from them!

Another cool thing about SayNation is that your kiddos can join, and earn themselves some rewards too, as they have both a teen panel and an adult panel!

Check it out, they'll keep ya busy!

Reliable, Thank God!

I've been complaining all month about not getting survey checks that I'm owed... it's been a really excruciating time! I just moved, so I am completely broke, and checking an empty mailbox every day really can get depressing!

I must say, though, one company really has come through and impressed me lately... that's Opinion Outpost. Sure, I've had my days when I didn't care too much for them, namely when a survey would have a glitch... but this site has become my "Old Faithful"! I can log in, pretty much every day, and have new surveys to complete. Payout is only $5, so I can earn that, just sitting there for a little bit, and immediately request a check. These checks have been coming in less than a week! That's outstanding, for a survey company!!! Granted, most of the ones lately have been smaller than I usually request, just 'cause I've been so broke, so I've been cashing out at $6, $8, $10, etc., but at least it is a relief to see that smaller check from Opinion Outpost than that depressing, empty mailbox! lol

Thank you Opinion Outpost... you've really helped this poor WAHM this month! :)

Dollar Surveys

Ok, so I've been up all night again (stupid insomnia), so I figured I'd do a few surveys to keep me awake this morning. I don't know why I went to . Well, I do...

Pretty much every survey you do for them is a dollar. With some of them, that's not bad, but with others, like this morning, they're dragging on and on, and I'm thinking, "I'm doing this for a dollar?!" They do, however, often have really short ones, sometimes they pay a bit less, but it's something like entering your email address for fifty cents. I love those (as long as you don't use your main email account for this company), and they add up quickly.

The reason I KEEP doing surveys for is that I love that immediate gratification... well, not immediate, but pretty darn close! They pay every week, and they pay by Paypal. With the month I've been having (just moved, have all those expenses), expecting all these checks in the mail, going out to the box every day, just to find it empty, these Paypal payments have been a sunny spot! lol

Anyway, it's a judgement call you'll hafta make... sometimes you do surveys that are too long to only be paid a dollar, but you do get that dollar quickly! Pretty much sums it up!

What do y'all think?

reBlog from Connie on Monday, September 7th, 2009: 30 Things About My Invisible Illness | My Chronic Life

I found this fascinating quote today:

1. The illness I live with is: Myasthenia Gravis, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ulcerative Colitis. 2. I was diagnosed with it in the year: with UC in 1985, with MG in 2000, the rest 2001 or the year later. 3. But I had symptoms since: 19844 for the UC 4. The biggest adjustment I’ve had to make is: not being able to work and giving up my active lifestlye 5. Most people assume: I’m not sick 6. The hardest part about mornings are: waking up because I’m so tired 7. My favorite medical TV show is: House 8. A gadget I couldn’t live without is: my laptop 9. The hardest part about nights are: pain and insomnia 10. Each day I take __ pills & vitamins. (No comments, please) 36 11. Regarding alternative treatments I: am not able to try them because of the medications I am on for Myasthenia Gravis. There are many interactions for a certain prescription I take. 12. If I had to choose between an invisible illness or visible I would choose: visible so more people would understand 13. Regarding working and career: I’m sad that I can’t continue working in the career I chose for myself. I’m happy that I can work as a blogger though. 14. People would be surprised to know: that I’m in pain almost all the time. 15. The hardest thing to accept about my new reality has been: that I have to rely on other people for simple things. 16. Something I never thought I could do with my illness that I did was: attend a conference. 17. The commercials about my illness: re: Fibromyalgia and RA - make it seem like a pill or shot cures the disease. 18. Something I really miss doing since I was diagnosed is: dancing, drinking  a few beers, running, walking as much as I want to 19. It was really hard to have to give up: working 20. A new hobby I have taken up since my diagnosis is: blogging and photography 21. If I could have one day of feeling normal again I would: spend it with my family, listening to loud music, dancing, cooking and eating all day long 22. My illness has taught me: to appreciate every moment 23. Want to know a secret? One thing people say that gets under my skin is: you look great! 24. But I love it when people: recognize that most of the things I do take me a lot of effort 25. My favorite motto, scripture, quote that gets me through tough times is: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philipians 4:13 26. When someone is diagnosed I’d like to tell them: find a doctor who is supportive and knowledgeable and a support system 27. Something that has surprised me about living with an illness is: how understanding my husband and family are 28. The nicest thing someone did for me when I wasn’t feeling well was: take my daughter, who was much younger for play dates so she didn’t have to sit home while I slept 29. I’m involved with Invisible Illness Week because: it’s so important for people to understand about us, what our lives are like, what we go through each day and how they can support us 30. The fact that you read this list makes me feel: fantastic!Connie on Monday, September 7th, 2009, 30 Things About My Invisible Illness | My Chronic Life, Sep 2009

Round Table from Walmart

If you purchase and use Great Value brand products from Walmart, you can sign up for the Walmart Round Table. But hurry, because they are only taking 200 applicants right now - but will increase the number to 20,000 later on. Here is more info about the program that I received from Walmart:

We have an exciting new opportunity from Walmart’s Great Value team. They just launched a new site called The Round Table, which is a survey-based community for Walmart shoppers who buy the Great Value brand. Sign up for The Round Table.

The Round Table offers users the opportunity to complete surveys regarding Great Value products. Each completed survey enters the user into a monthly drawing for ten $500 Walmart gift cards. This is Great Value’s investment in listening, and represents their desire to truly understand how consumers view their products and their brand. They’re looking for your feedback on Great Value products – good or bad!

The Great Value team is focused on growing the community to 200 members in the next two weeks. At the end of that period, the first drawing will be held – which makes each member’s chance of winning in the initial drawing 1/20. Walmart hopes to grow the community to 20,000 customers by the end of the year.

So if you buy Walmart Great Value products, sign up for this one ASAP! You just might win a FREE $500 Walmart gift card!

I've been a member of Mindfield for years, always enjoyed it, as they send tons of surveys, and pay accurately and responsibly. The good news is, they're now paying through Paypal, or you can still have your standard check!

Mindfield is also giving away 2 iPhone 3g's and 1 Apple TV, and the only thing you have to do to enter is update your profiles, which is a good thing for you anyway, as it means more surveys for you!

Paypal surveys

I was very leery of Palm Research when I first read about it. The main reason is: it takes them a long time to pay... BUT... once you get paid that first time, you can get paid every month. You have to earn ten dollars in a month, which really is easy, but it's a month later when you get paid. They pay through Paypal, which is a bonus, in my book... and, I DID get paid.... yea! They usually send ya two surveys a day, worth $1 each, but they usually have a few more surveys on their site that you can do. A few pay a little more, rarely, they have a couple that pay less, but you can do as many as you can in that one day. So, again, it is very easy to earn well over ten bucks in a month. If you can wait that first time to get paid, it's definitely worth it. It's one I'll stick with now!

Search and Earn!

You've probably seen the widget at the bottom of the page for SwagBucks... I just joined recently, and am LOVIN' it! It gives the same results as the top engines, and you win Swagbucks, just for searching like you normally would. I didn't have much hope when I joined, as I've been with a few other similar sites, but with this one, my swagbucks really are adding up quickly! You can redeem for some awesome prizes (Christmas presents for kids! lol), and they even give out free codes that you can redeem for extra swagbucks, in addition to those you earn for searching! I'm just really impressed, seeing my total go up each and every day! The best way is to download their searchbar, but you don't even have to do that. They have plugins for Firefox and IE, that'll just put a search bar uptop, if you don't like those extra toolbars. Anyway, they offer great support, and a totally friendly crew. If you'd like to give it a shot, and earn some swagbucks for yourself, all you've gotta do is sign up! Happy earning!
