Gagabux.com - Super-slow payouts

I am a member of Gagabux.com and have been waiting for my first payout since 17-April-2010. Now that to me is a long time. I believe that they will pay up eventually. This is because in forums, I see people getting paid after a longer wait of even more than a month! So there is a ray of hope.

The talk of the web is that since they make manual payments and their member-base has become huge in a very short time-span, their payouts are slow. But this is like super-slow. Sheesh. Anyhow, I figured I don't have a thing to lose. So I keep checking the forums and get updates from my friends. Hoping for the best here too.

How has your experience with Gagabux been like? Do you like Gagabux.com? Let me know.

Happy earnings!

Living in the fast lane

How is everyone?

OMG OMG OMG! I cannot believe how much stuff has been happening in my life in the past 1 week.

I have bagged 4 freelancing jobs, since I am working from home now. I am busy 5 days a week. Just yesterday I was able to get back to my blogger friends- checking your blogs, reading, commenting, catching up. Love you all!

Today, I have been tweaking my blog, but didn't get too much time for even that. Now I am on my way out for some emergency shopping. Ughhh..At night I need to get some prep done, so that I can start the work week smoothly.

I hope this week is a lot smoother than last. Life in the fast lane is not always fun.lol.

Love you all. Do drop by and let me know how you are. I will get back to every one who leaves a word. Muah!

Happy earnings!

Socialspark.com - Minimum Requirement for Blog Approval: An Update

I hope your weekend is going rather well. Mine is much calmer than last week's. (Praise the Lord!)

On another note, I have an update for you regarding SocialSpark.com. Since I was the one who wrote a blog post discussing why I loved it so much, I need to write about this update. In case you are planning to join Social Spark, ensure that your blog fulfills the minimum requirements, so that it gets approved immediately.

I learnt about the minimum requirements of Social spark regarding blogs the hard way *weeping*. My blog was rejected by Social spark a few days ago. This was because my blog did not fulfill the minimum requirement that they have. I don't want any of your blogs to be rejected like mine was. So I decided to write an update to let you all know what had happened. This way, you can learn a lesson from my case.

Social Spark's Minimum Requirement for Blog Approval (sent by Customer Love)

--In order for a blog to be approved into our Marketplace, it needs to be a minimum of 90 days old, and contain a minimum of 20 original, non-sponsored posts in those 90 days. This blog currently has less than 20 posts within the past 90 days.

So if/when your blog fulfills this requirement, go right ahead and apply at the site. If all goes well, the blog will certainly be accepted. You can then start earning.Once my blog fulfills the minimum requirements, I plan on applying to Social Spark again. I will keep you posted.
Happy earnings!

SocialSpark.com – Don't miss out on Paid Blogging at its Best

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

The niche of this site pretty much says it all. Yes, I have been looking for money making opportunities for a while. Yes, I like to share my experiences with people, so they too can join me in programs that are good and stay away from scams. Since I am writing a post on SocialSpark, you know it's a special site. Plus, what makes this post all the more special is that no matter what I write about  SocialSpark.com, I am going to be paid for this post! Woohoo. Life is good. Wish I were paid every time I wrote the truth.



For the past month or so, I have been trying various ways to monetize my blog. I am so glad that a friend told me about Social Spark in one of the comments she left me. I signed up and I already know this is a great site. If it were a scam or did not pay competitive rates, this site would not have as many members.ha!

What makes Social Spark better than other paid to blog sites?
This is a question I asked myself before adding one more site to my "money making list". Once I signed up, it did not take me too long to realize why SocialSpark was different from the other paid-to-blog sites. The concept is the same. Advertisers pay you money to blog about their product/service/site. We bloggers make money, the advertiser gets exposure due to our blog post, and all's well.

But the beauty behind how this site works is that it doesn't have time consuming processes. The signing up process literally takes just a minute. You don't have a huge form with a 100 details to be filled in. Once you sign up and your account gets created, paste some code into your blog and that is it! Everyone who signs up gets an offer to write a  sponsored post about Socialspark.com. So you get paid for your first impressions of the site. You don't have to keep waiting, hoping that some opportunity will be sent your way. There is a "marketplace", where you can browse and select opportunities that interest you and are closest to your niche.

Another wonderful thing I noticed, is that you can connect with fellow bloggers. You can add them as "friends", leave feedback and so on. So why not Sign up for SocialSpark ?

It's Sidebar time
Like every other site, Social Spark has some guidelines too. So don't flout their Code of Ethics. Very simple rules are mentioned in their Code of Ethics.
 1. You need to let your reader's know that you are being paid for a post. This I think is great, as your readers will know that you are writing an honest article.
2. You need to give real, honest opinions. Dishonest posts are frowned upon. You write what you think is true.

The moment I receive my first payout, I will share the payment proof with you. So if you are unsure of Social Sparks at the moment, wait a while and I will update you.
Happy earnings!

To all my Blogger Friends- I will be visiting soon!

To all my blog hopping, gorgeous pals and readers, thank you for stopping by. I am sorry that I have not been able to find the time to come over and visit your blogs. But I plan to do so real soon.  A day or 2 should be good enough.

This weekend has been really exhausting. I was looking at some freelancing options and that took a lot of time. Apart from that, I did have to do some regular work at home, it being weekend and all. I had plans to catch up on my sleep, but those plans will have to wait..Sigh!

That's about it! I just wanted to make this quick post to remind you all just one thing, "I'll be back". (Does that remind anyone of the Terminator? Or maybe it's just my mind telling me I definitely need to get some rest. :-) )

Happy earnings!

Hyifund.com - Scam

I have some not so great news for anyone who has invested money in Hyifund.com

This highly reputed hyip site that used to pay the interests like clockwork within 24 hours, has now stopped doing so.Not just this, they have introduced a new "Cycler" program, asking people to separately deposit funds into it. Looks like they need more money. "When an investment is made, it goes into the queue, which will be paid off as others join the 110% queue."  That is what is mentioned in how the cycler program will work. I have to say "Sorry Hyifund.com , I am not interested."

I have been checking up in several forums and everyone seems to think that Hyifund.com has indeed turned into a scam. Unless they arise from the ashes like a Phoenix bird, I request you all to stay away from this hyip site. If there are anymore updates, I will let you know.
Happy earnings!

Meta keyword tags..I forgot!

Hey my adoable readers!
This post is important for every blog owner. It might seem to you that what I am writing is not related to making money, but in reality, online money making and the subject of this post are linked.

This is pretty much the first step in trying to get your blog's Google page rank improved. "Meta keyword tags"!

Blogs with better Google pageranks get so many more money making opportunities. People will want to advertise on your blogs, advertisers will pay you to review their products on your blogs and so on.You might be wondering why I am discussing about the importance of "meta tags" all of a sudden. Well, it is because I changed the template of this blog. During this process, I forgot to include the "meta keyword tags". I realized this just today. So I decided I might just write a note to all my readers.

Learn how to add the "meta keyword tags" to your blogger/blogspot.com blog here:  How to add meta keyword and description to blogspot
