I Joined PayPerPost

Usually when someone mentions "making money online," the conversation takes a turn toward, "wouldn't that be great, but it's just a pipe dream." Well, some people have actually found a legitimate way to earn income on the web. Doing what? Writing paid blog posts. Blogging is old enough now that it is being taken seriously as a new form of media, of publication. Every blogger is like a separate newspaper editor. Physical newspapers get paid to print certain information, so why not bloggers?

A little while back I read somewhere online that a company called payperpost had gone to the trouble of creating a marketplace specifically catering to bloggers and those wanting bloggers to get the word out about a product, service, or web site. I thought, "Hey, I've got a blog, I wonder if I can sign up and make some money?" Sure enough, it can be done. There are requirements each blog has to meet, but once you cross those hurdles, you can get paid $20 for writing a post just like this one.

That's right. I'm getting paid $20. To do what? To write! And I don't even need a pen! Is this world crazy or what? But seriously folks, that's one of the things I love best about PayPerPost. They help you find opportunities where you can easily monetize something that's just lying idle - your blog.

So far, one important lesson I've learned is that when PayPerPost asks you to "resubmit your blog," all you need to do is log in to your account, make some changes to the information regarding your blog, and click the "Update" button. The "Update" button does what you might expect a "Resubmit" button to do.

One thing I thought I'd mention is how I'm going to spend the $20. I saw on the "Colbert Report" last night that even though nobody knows if we're in a recession, spending in a confident way will help to prevent a full-blown economic downturn. So I'm going to build my own Economic Stimulus Package, which may end up primarily consisting of pizza. Thanks, PayPerPost!
