Make Money Simply by Blogging!

Without a doubt, living on one income, or should I say SURVIVING on one income in today's world is not always the easiest thing to do. With the continual high cost of gas and now groceries as well, we homeschoolers have to come up with some pretty ingenious ways of pinching those pennies. I've just recently started clipping coupons and learning how to shop for the best deals whenever possible. Yard sales have always been a fun hobby for me, but now it holds even more excitement knowing that when I find those bargains I am truly helping our family be able to continue living on just Honey's income.

I've tried my hand at a few different things to help bring in a few extra dollars here and there... selling on ebay, babysitting, and most recently becoming one of our local hospital's newborn baby photographers! Now, while that is THE best job EVER, it still takes me away from home and causes just a bit of strain in our family. So since this past July I have only been the other photographer's emergency back-up and have worked a total of maybe 5 times.

I've racked my brain trying to think of what I could do from home that would help bring in a little extra money while not taking me away from my family or my duties here at home.

Then, a couple days ago I was blog surfing and I came across a button someone had in their sidebar that said something about getting paid for blogging. WHAT?! I most definitely know how to blog, but I never thought I could actually get PAID for doing it! Surely this couldn't be legit! So, I clicked on the button and found myself at where you get paid for blogging! Sounds too simple, doesn't it?

Well, believe it or not, it really IS simple! All you do is sign up with PayPerPost and then begin choosing from the MANY different opportunities available to blog about! Advertisers want YOU to blog about them and they will pay you for doing so. But instead of going looking for them, or they for you, PayPerPost brings both Advertiser and Blogger together in one place! Not only is this a easy way for us to earn some extra money, but it's also a great way for advertisers to drive traffic to their businesses. It's a win/win situation!

PayPerPost lists all the available opportunities for you to blog about. You look them over and choose the opportunities that are relevant to the tone of your blog and those that you WANT to blog about. If something doesn't flow with the feel and purpose of your blog, don't choose that opportunity. Believe me, there are plenty of choices to choose from. You won't have a problem finding something to blog about.

Once your blog entry has been approved by the advertiser you blogged for, you get paid! Simple as that! I can't tell you how excited I am to have found this site. I have been checking it out all day and have been impressed with everything I saw. I even found a few blogs that I enjoyed sitting and reading over. These are regular people just like you and me that are earning money for blogging! If they can do it, then I know I can.

My first goal is to make enough to pay off some small lingering bills we have. But after seeing the amounts PayPerPosts top earners are making, I think I just might have to set my goals a bit higher!

Go ahead, check it out. I think you'll be glad you did. What could be easier than earning money by doing what we love to do... blogging!
