Bloggertunities: Learn More & Earn More!

Find new blogging opportunities

“Heeeeeeeeey, bloggy ladies!!!!” – {Sung to the tune of Gangnam Style….}

So, once again – I’m a day late getting this post up. *Sigh* I’m late on just about everything these days. Including Christmas shopping. I’m drowning in emails, I have boxes of supplies waiting to be crafted into cool gifty creations. Cupboards full of ingredients waiting to be whipped into creative holiday goodies. And a spare room full of boxes waiting to be opened and photographed and reviewed. *Sigh* Good thing for coffee. And wine. If I only had a comfier office chair. {Anyone have a contact for that? Lol.} So – here’s what I have put together for ya’all this week. Hope you find something helpful! And – if you ever have something you’d like included here, like a great tips post, a linky you host, or an event sign up – you can feel free to send me a message on Facebook. I’ll do my best to get them all shared each week!

Events to Join

  • Madame Deals: This a free event to participate in, and is a little different than most giveaway events. You can learn all of the details here on the doc form. You won’t get a link on the giveaway form, but you WILL get some other pretty cool perks. I signed up, and am really excited about it.
  • Casting Call: DaddyScrubs is looking for families to be in thier upcoming photoshoot!. “We need new dads, expectant dads, and experienced dads.”  The photoshoot will take place in Torrance, CA, which is in the Los Angeles area, on January 14-15, 2013. If you know anyone that would be interested and lives in the area, PLEASE pass this information along to them! Participants will receive payment, daddyscrubs items, and of course any photo that they want from the shoot. Anyone who is interested can e-mail them directly at kennadyn@daddyscrubs.com to find out more information.

Monetize Your Blog

  • Virality: This is brand new, so I don’t know much about it yet. But this is what it says, “Viraliti is not open to public yet. Share your unique referral link on Facebook and Twitter to get ahead of your competition! Invite friends, co-workers, family, followers and all. More friends qualify you for an earlier invite and if your friends sign up with us using the referral link, you will earn up to 7% of their earning.”
  • PostGenius: Make money by writing sponsored posts for brands and websites. They state that you can earn between $3-$1000 per post, which is a pretty serious range, right? Lol. But, I’ve had two offers now that I’ve completed, both around $200. I haven’t had my first payout yet, but this was recommended to me by someone who’s been using it for a long time, and is happy with it. I’ll let you know as I have more personal updates to share on it.
  • Escalate: This is an incredibly easy network to work with. They have legit offers, and pay FAST – by the 15th of the month, you’ll get a PayPal payment for the previous month. Way cool. And the system is really simple. Sign up here: Escalate Media.
  • StudioPress: If you’re a big fan of StudioPress themes like I am, then this would be a really great fit for you – Become a StudioPress Affiliate and Make Money!
  • Health Post: They’re looking for about 20 blogs for a sponsored post. Get details and apply here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFZZLU1NSlFYRzJmQ1VzTjYxbm1CT3c6MQ#gid=0.
  • Paper Coterie: If you’re using Escalate already, then you’ll definitely love Paper Coterie, since they use the same framework. They had a few glitches over the past few months, trying to get their affiliate program up and running – but things seem to running really smoothly now, and my payments are coming regularly. And they’re products are seriously to die for.
  • More Money Tips: Here’s a very popular post on my site – 10 Ways to Earn Money from Home. Working from home is my job – and I use a ton of different ways of earning to make sure that I can earn enough money to support my family, since I’m the only one working. These are some of the ways I earn more cash.
  • Share a Sale: This is by far my favorite affiliate network that I’ve worked with, ever. So easy to use, I get paid quickly and reliably, the affiliates you sign up with there are awesome, and will often email you with cool contests to join, or bonus offers to earn with, or even product giveaways. Join shareasale.com, Earn Cash!
  • Social Spark: Definitely get signed up here – I earn at least a couple hundred bucks a month here. The posts aren’t tough to write, since they provide almost all of the resources that you need. The pay is consistent and usually pretty good. I’ve used them happily for over a year.

  • Site down?: Don’t you hate those times where you’re having trouble with your site, but you don’t know if it’s a tech problem on your end – browser, computer, etc?
