Blogging For Dollars

Yes, the title is true, and no it is not "bowling for dollars." At www.payperpost.com a person can actually make money submitting content on their blog. Now, how does this work?

First, visit the site, sign up and create a profile. Simple. Then take a gander at the opportunites that are presented-people who are looking for a specific topic to be "blogged" about. This works two ways, the blogger gets paid a specified dollar amount for blogging about the "bloggees" (yes that is a word, I just made it up!) particular topic; one that is presented as unique opportunities posed to the blogger. Like I said, simple!

These opportunities for the "pay for post blogger" are unlimited (yes, you have to make a name for yourself) and the blogger just reserves the right to do a particular "job." And, these opportunitiess are posted for the bloggers at www.payperpost.com seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. This creates an almost unlimited resource for all bloggers to earn extra cash as they blog about just about any category and subject available!

The post is then reviewed by the "powers that be" at Pay Per Post and, viola, if approved, you get paid directly to your PayPal account! Why they even add twenty dollars to your account for your first post, happily touting and promoting the Pay Per Post methods of working at home (unless you sneak it in at work-shhhh) and getting paid to write about a particular topic you enjoy anyway! Of course, there are limits (word of mouth ethics) So sign up today, they are anxiously awaiting new recruits!

The money you earn can be used for anything your heart desires- you can't get better than that. How about saving for that expensive holiday called Christmas? Buy your loved ones what they desire....life is good!

Joel Whitburn-Billboard Genius

Today I had the pleasure of browsing around Joel Whitburn's web site http://www.recordresearch.com/and found it very enjoyable.

For those of you who do not know who Joel is, he is the most widely recognized authoritative historian on charted music and Joel’s own record collection remains unrivaled the world over and includes every charted Hot 100 and pop single (back to 1936), every charted pop album (back to 1945), and every video to chart since Billboard began its video charts in 1979. Joel also owns one of the world’s largest picture sleeve collections, many of which he displays in the series of books (Top 40 Hits, Top 40 Albums, Top 40 Country Hits) he writes for Billboard’s book division. To date, Record Research has published over 100 books, over 40 of which are currently in the catalog.

I also "toured" the album photo page and have posted a small sample of the intriguing and interesting album cover photos he has on display.

In the market for the latest Billboard reference books? Go to Joel's site and grab these "music bibles" for your reading pleasure. Visit:
