WOW…I hadn’t realized just how long it had been since I last wrote. So much has changed. I’ve decided to drop out of pin up modeling for one thing. Honestly, I just don’t have the time or money to devote to it and do it justice. It was simply causing more stress to me personally so, at least for now…I’m done with it. So many people suddenly thought that I must have had something bad happen, or maybe someone said something to upset me. No folks, this isn’t a reactionary step. It was a long thought upon personal choice. I’m 47! And to be honest, I’m still finding myself.
So, I thought, in this new vain I would simply use this as an opportunity and platform to share some things with you.
Where in the world did the term disposable income come from? I can’t think of a single person in my circle who has any portion of their income that they could consider to be disposable. Right now, I choose every single purchase that I make VERY carefully. And yes, there are some items that I want and I have to reconcile that they are more in the ‘wants’ column than the ‘needs’ column. It does, however, get frustrating that at my age I deny myself some simple pleasures. So, what’s a girl to do? Find a way to make a little bit of money while doing next to nothing, or get paid for things that you already do.
One thing I have is an app on my phone called PACT. You can download it for Android or iOS. The app is free, and you get paid for healthy activities like working out, logging meals, etc. BUT, there is a risk. For any failed pact you will be fined $5 each. (that’s where the money comes from to pay those who succeed). Am I getting wealthy? Nope. I average about $3/week with it. But it’s stuff I do anyway.
Today I found another one. I won’t share the site just yet as I’m testing it out. Basically you get paid by sharing ‘campaigns’ through social media outlets like twitter, facebook, tumblr, etc. Some pay you if people click the link and then purchase something. Others are games and you’ll get paid if someone clicks and downloads the game. Others (which are what I am choosing) simply pay you by the click. For each unique IP address that clicks the link you provide you will get a few cents deposited in your account. Once you reach a minimum of $10 you can have the money put into your paypal account. So, I’m asking you a favor on this first go around. you don’t have to buy a thing. Click on this link. http://bst.is/LE73W8 I get paid 7 cents for each click through. This one is for a variety of teas and tea based products. If you see something you like, go ahead and buy it (I don’t get anything extra if you purchase, just for that click).
In a week I’ll report back on how I did. (FYI, I’ve made 35 cents so far. LOL)
