Total's to Date

I haven't posted in awhile because the earnings are so meager right now it's more exciting to update less frequently. I do have exciting news though., one of the sites I belong to and refer people to, I made money off of for the first time! Someone I referred went shopping to one of their favorite stores through and saved 20% on their purchase, and since I reffered them I made 20% of their 20%! Not taken out of their savings but paid directly from to me! Success! Patience pays off in the long run with residual income.

Keep shopping everyone, and remember to email me at with which site you want to sign up for and I'll send you referral link.

Earnings to date:

Ehow: 6.84
Adsense: 9.34
MrRebates: 5.07
Demand Studios: 22.50
Kontera: 0.02
Firehow: 2.22
Mypoints: I don't keep a running total here because I just get enough points to earn gift certificates of my choosing but I will say I wanted to subscribe to a magazine I had heard about so I logged into and from their search engine found the magazine at the same price I would have paid elsewhere, and bought it. I got 500 points for that! 1400 points is a $10 gift certificate and it was something I was going to buy anyways! Now if only I could remember to use when I buy pizza from Dominoes, thats 500 points each time as well; I would be in business then!  Everyone should belong to and if they do online shopping, and even better if you email me for a referral link!

Weekly Update

I have decided to start a weekly update of where my earnings stand, I will just add my current week's earnings to that of the week before for a running total. This first one is going to include earnings up to this date since I have begun on each site.

Firehow: .77
Ehow: 5.64
Demand Studios: 22.50
Kontera: 0.00
MrRebates: 0.00
Xomba,WebAnswers, Blogs: 6.98
Amazon Affiliates: 0.00


 not too shabby considering that I can just lay back and let my earnings grow every month without doing any more work. Ah, pass me a drink darhling

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 while not being 'residual income' so I'm kind of cheating, is a great way to earn gift certificates online, with nearly no time or effort required from you.

How It Works

Once you sign up for I recommend in your inbox you create a sub- folder for your Mypoints emails to go to. 
Every few days when your checking your email, go to your sub-folder and click on the Mypoints emails. At the bottom of each one will have an orange icon and will say click here for 5 points. It will open an external website which you can immediately close. (I recommend this with tabbed browsing).
If you are so inclined, some of the emails you will receive are worth considerably more, but they are to take surveys. If you have the time, try one out, you may find them fun and worth it, you might not. I did them frequently at first but now I find my time is better spent elsewhere.

Before I know it, I have 1400 points in my account and I can choose from hundreds of gift certificates. My husband participates in this as well and our favorite gift certificate choices are Subway, and Borders.

Also - I DO (surprise surprise)  receive bonus points for anyone I sign up! They haven't provided me with a banner to add to my page, it is done through email, so send me an email at and I'll have the referral sent to you!

So technically in that regard, it can actually be residual income. So - not cheating at all!

Xomba continued

I am SO EXCITED about Xomba. I have decided to give myself a Xomba challenge. That is to write 100 Xomba bookmarks in 100 days.

I have 3 to date and they can be viewed at the links below. Note that if you click the links at the bottom of the bookmark and buy the item off of Amazon, I get paid for that as well. win win win!

Xomba Promoting this blog

Wednesday, May 12, 2010


I think Xomba is going to be my new favorite writing site!!

You have two options when writing for Xomba.

You can post an article which is over 150 words and can contain images, video and links,


You can post a xombyte which is only 50 words minimum and can contain a link.

All you need to make money is a Google Ad sense account and the desire to write a little bit.

The theory with a xombyte is that you have an external blog or article you want to promote and you write a short 'byte' about it, and include a link.

Whaw! You have twice the publicity, xomba gives you 50% of your ad sense, so your getting paid there, PLUS your getting paid of course from the redirect to your blog or article.

The only question left is why WOULDN'T you sign up?

If I refer you, I get a little icing on the cake, so if you like what I'm doing here, send me an email at and I will send you the referral. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only way for me to get the referral bonus. (There isn't a place for you to enter it when you sign up.)

Amazon Associates for Bloggers

If you have a blog, you can sign up for a free Amazon Associates account. Much like Ad Sense, it will put links to Amazon's site on your page. (You can chose what to advertise or just let it pick the Amazon's best sellers). When someone from your blog buys whatever is advertised -- notice they have to click that item from your blog, not go to Amazon directly and buy it--- then you get paid a percentage of what is sold. The more items you help sell, the better percentage you receive.

This seems like a great way to earn a little bit of residual income, and when I help make my first 'sale' I will let you know.
