Get on the Boat! One Day Left Countdown...
I've been spending most of the afternoon preparing myself for the Thirty Day Challenge by familiarizing myself with all of the different applications. It's funny because I've seen and used all of the applications - things like twitter and StumbleUpon, add ons for FireFox, but I don't think I've really used them so far. I'm excited to learn how to really make these things work for me.

In between playing around with the different apps, I've also been writing some more articles on Associated Content. I know the goal of this challenge is to make 10 dollars in 30 days online, I've already done that today. That's not the hard part - but if you think about it, the money I've made today has been from work like writing articles. The thing about the challenge that I am most excited about is learning how to make a more residual income. One that keeps growing. I know that takes a lot of front end work, but the benefits on the back end will hopefully be as Will Ferrell likes to say, "Glorious."

At one time in my life - a short period - I worked as a Financial Advisor for American Express. For every insurance program I sold I earned an initial commission, as well as a residual commission every year (though I didn't stay on long enough to see those). That's the idea I'm looking to create here - I want to do a lot of work over the next thirty day (more likely a lot longer than that) and I want that work to build something for me that keeps paying me over and over.

One of the members of my team is from Uruguay. His name is Esteban. We've only been interacting for a couple of days now, but he's already pointed me in the direction of a pretty neat free application for screen capture in windows. Here's the link: Screen Hunter. It's free and it works like Skitch for the Macintosh.



Here's a screenshot using that tool - the shot is of my browser and Esteban's games company - Wild Harmony Studio. Also notice in the picture I'm browsing the web, but also writing this blog post with ScribeFire at the bottom. Cool eh?

Initial Impressions: CashCrate
I've been spoiled by the ease of use at Treasure Trooper. That's why when I started on CashCrate I was extremely happy with how clean and easy the site was to navigate. Don't you hate those sites where it seems like everything is a big secret and you have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out how not to get run around in circles trying to unsubscribe?

Cash Crate's site is on level with Treasure Trooper's, which I love. It also works almost the exact same way as Treasure Trooper. Of all the sites that I've been researching - I think CashCrate has the most positive reviews of any other site that I've found. The site is easy, the affiliate program is excellent, and payments are always on time.



Speaking of affiliate programs - CashCrate's is excellent. You're paid on two levels of referrals. The first level is the people you sign up, and the second is the people your first level signs up. And they pay 20% and 10%. Excellent. As you get more referrals your percentages rise all the way up to 30% and 20%.

Here's a picture of a check that my friend Amy received from CashCrate:


Notice the total? $1855.84! Nice. Amy is actually my sponsor and has helped me a lot with getting started with CashCrate - even loaned me this photo of her check - I told her it was just until my check looked like hers! Take a look at Amy's review of CashCrate here - she has some really interesting stats in hers.

Can you make any money without referrals? Of course. It's like any other pay to click program. CashCrate has a daily $0.80 survey that you can take every 24 hours. Just doing that is an extra 25 bucks a month for 3 minutes of work a day. Can't ask for much easier than that - but of course you can always do more as their are a ton of programs.

So what the negative in all of this? Spam. It's like any other pay to click site - you give out your email to a lot of advertisers. That's why CashCrate can pay you - it's basically an information gathering service and advertisers pay for that, that's how you make $0.50 or $2.00 bucks an offer. I have a separate gmail account set up just for this. I give them my info, that email, and just log into that email every few days to delete the accumulated spam. Nothing really to it. As far as telemarketers - go to privatephone.com - you can get a free phone number with voicemail, so you don't ever have to worry about anybody calling you.

Anyways - if you've been wanting to try a pay to click program - give this one a shot. I'm giving CashCrate a serious thumbs up for now. Here's my referral link - http://www.cashcrate.com/296022. Would love it if we both make some money on this on!

a href img src? What does that mean?
This is another great tool that I came across in the forums on the 30 Day Challenge. What a great resource. If you've ever sat there for an hour going through the code to realize you forgot a "." then this is going to save you a bit of time. In fact - it might even lengthen your life expectancy* by reducing your stress levels.

FireFox, Facebook, and the 30 Day Challenge
I'm excited. I literally was up from last night till noon today going over material for the 30 Day Challenge. I wish I had found this a week ago, so I could have spread out the learning over the week instead of cramming it all in last night, but regardless - I can't believe the progress I've made today.

I've learned how to effectively use a number of social bookmarking tools. Met a group of 5 other people taking the challenge and formed a team for it (Team iMarket). Set up a FaceBook Account to use as an interface for the team. Downloaded Skype and played around with it's features. Set up FireFox - Oh My God - I can't believe I wasn't already using FireFox. I'm one of those people where I've never had many issues with Internet Explorer - so why change? I was comfortable with it. After a few hours on FireFox I feel like a complete idiot for not changing sooner. All the same features as IE, but the applications and addons that accompany FireFox are crazy cool. I mean, I don't even ever say "crazy cool," but some of these things are crazy cool - whatever that means. I mean - I even now can control my iTunes with my browswer. It does everything.

If you haven't seen anything about the 30 Day Challenge. Check It Out. Period. I'm serious - and that goes for everybody, you don't even need to be a blogger to give it a shot. All you need is an internet connection - seriously. They're going to teach you this from the ground up. And everybody with experience I can hear you saying - "well I know all this stuff, I don't need to sit through that." Well, you're wrong. You might know it, but this project I think - but maybe you've developed some bad habits, here's your chance to strip those away and develop some excellent new habits that will help you grow your online presence.

30 Day Challenge
I'm getting started a little late in the game - but I'm ready to go regardless.

The 30 Day Challenge is a challenge run by Ed Dale and Dan Raine - two very experienced bloggers and Internet Marketers. The goal of the challenge is to earn $10 online in 30 days. $10 you say? Yes, I know, many of us are past that step, but really, if you can learn how to earn $10, then earning $1000 uses the same steps and techniques.

The challenge starts Aug. 1st, but when you register and start checking out the 30 day challenge blog and forums there is a ton of information already to begin learning. I've spent the evening going through the blog and it's instructional videos - and the things I've already learned have me really impressed. I am familiar with a lot of the concepts and information that Ed and Dan are providing - but they really show you how to implement different strategies and take things to the next level.

If you want to take part in the challenge - check out the site: 30 Day Challenge. Good luck everybody taking the challenge!

Do you hear that? Or is it just me?
Yesterday Harper went to Riley's birthday party. He came home with a few toys, including a little train that's also a whistle. Of course I see him walking around with it today so I blow into the whistle a few times for him. I gave it back to him and about ten minutes later it started. Of course everytime he learns something new his mom and me praise him and tell him good job. With this new accomplishment that lasted all of oh, 42 seconds. And unfortunately, that was about two hours ago. You can't take it away from him - he won't have that. If I try to trade toys with him he just takes whatever it is I want to hand him, and holds the whistle with his mouth, blowing into it the whole time.



I've begun thinking of ways for the train whistle to disappear. I've never plotted the death of a toy before. Do I just throw it out? Put it on a high shelf? How do I distract the kid? Or should I bury it in the desert, this is Vegas afterall. Maybe I can just disable the whistle.

Seeing as it's impossible to actually concentrate with this whistle - I'm not even attempting to write any articles besides this blog post. For the past hour I just opened a few windows in my browser for Treasure Trooper and Hits4Pay. That's one reason I like these programs - I can mindlessly click on some ads and not have to concentrate, but at least I make a few bucks. And I don't even have to stay on the computer - just open an ad (most have to be open for 30 seconds) and come back in a little bit. I can roll around on the floor with the kid for a little while and that's ok. Every once in a while I just reach up to the computer and click on the next ad - then it's back to banging on the drums or blowing in the whistle or dumping all the blocks on the floor, whatever the boss tells me he wants to do.

Editing the blog or writing some articles will just have to wait for bedtime.

Blog Traffic: Fechr.com (Get Featured)
Ok - so when I first saw the name Fechr I was thinking 'fetch.' Then I saw they were pronouncing it 'featured' - I guess that'll work.

It's not often you can get in on the ground floor of something, but here's your chance. Fechr.com is a new social bookmarking site. Basically how it works is that the site features a new website everyday, and that new site is promoted for 24 hours. The cost for this is 5 dollars, but wait, because they're just starting out, you can get in now for free! Yes, free!

Fechr is run by the same players that run The Bestest Blog of All Time. So - my guess is this is going to catch on real quick, as The Bestest Blog has no problem drawing visitors.

Run on over while it's still free!

Affiliate Programs: T-Shirt Hell dot Com
There are all sorts of affiliate programs out there. You can earn money by selling books for Amazon or electonics at tons of sites or even by selling something like t-shirts. You don't even have to design them.

When I first opened my t-shirt shop on CafePress, I spent a lot of time looking into different t-shirt sites on the internet. One of the sites I came across was T-Shirt Hell - home to some of the most offensive t-shirts I've seen anywhere. It's a funny and well done site with a ton of excellent t-shirts, and they have a killer affiliate program as well.

About a year ago I placed a few links on some pages and kind of forgot that I had registered as an affiliate. I came across the site again and actually remembered my password and username and logged in. And what do you know, when I logged in I actually had some sales. Not a lot - but remember, I did exactly zero promotion and basically forgot about T-shirt Hell. The program pays you $4 dollars for every shirt you sell, and a dollar for every shirt somebody that signs up for the affiliate program under you sells.

I thought I would give their affiliate program another look and see if I can drive some traffic to their site. I'm mentioning it here - but the majority of my promotion with this affiliate program is going to be on my t-shirt blog - ChewingGlass Tees.

So, if you're looking for something a little different to try, use one of my referral links (please!) and check out T-shirt Hell's affiliate program. Oh yeah - and here's two of their tamer shirts "Bros before Hoes" and "Lindsay Lohan Should Be Behind Bars"(most I probably shouldn't repeat here as they'll make me blush).

The Skinny on Treasure Trooper
Today I spent a good hour reading through and exploring the Treasure Trooper site. I completed 3 offers good for $2.00. That took me about 20 minutes to complete the three offers - the rest of the time I was checking out the store and reading through other options. For each offer you complete you get a coin - those coins can be traded in for things such as referrals or even things like an ipod or xbox 360. Not bad - though I think it would take a while to save up for one of those.

I like Treasure Trooper overall - and they have a ton of offers to complete. I signed up with 3 survey sites and made $2.00. There are offers that pay as much as 30 or 40 dollars - but there a little more involved than I want to be. I'm happy for now with the 1 or 2 bucks for my information. Though be sure to set up a gmail account to use for completing the offers. You're going to get hit with some spam - so I just set up a gmail account specifically for this program.

I don't know if I could do more than 3 or 4 offers a day as there are a lot of ads to look at. It's like any other pay per click program in that for each offer you get bombarded with a ton of ads to go through to complete the offers. But, where as with Hits4Pay you get 2 cents for every ad, on Treasure Trooper you get 50 cents or a couple of bucks for clicking through a large group of them.

So I'll probably spend 10 or 20 minutes a day on there completing a few offers. It's just a couple of bucks a day, but it'll add up without too much effort. If this review has your interest peaked and you want to check it out - please use one of my links to sign up, I'd appreciate it! Good Luck.

Create A Passive Income With CafePress
One of the greatest things about working online is that there are a lot of ways that you can generate a passive income. A passive income is an income that you receive without having to work continuously. It's received for work that's already been done - a residual income.

My largest passive income right now is being generated by my online t-shirt shop hosted by CafePress. It's called A Pair and A Draw - it's theme is poker related shirts and gear.

I started that Cafe Press shop back in April of 2006. I'd say I put in about 3 weeks of work, designing shirts and setting up the shop. A few hours a day here and there. Since that time I've done very little besides the occasional addition of a new shirt. I did some promotion of the shop on places like MySpace or other social bookmarking sites, and submitted my designs to different sites that ranked t-shirts. But really, I did very little promotion of the shop compared to what I probably could do. I did make sure that all of the products I had in the shop had detailed descriptions - hoping that the search engines would pick up some of the keywords in the descriptions to drive traffic that way.

It didn't take long for me to make my first sale - a few days after I opened the shop I logged in and noticed that I had sold a shirt. I made 4 bucks on that first sale (on average - I make about 6 dollars per item sold). For the first few months I made a few sales each month, but things really picked up towards the end of the year. During the months of November and December I made over 200 dollars in commission each month. After the holidays, things slowed back down - but not too much. I regularly averaged $100 a month after that. This month - July of 2007 - I've already hit $160 dollars with about a week left in the month. So hopefully by the time the holidays arrive this year - I'm going to put last years numbers way down on the list.

Now the great thing is that - most of the income I've made is from one design. I'd say about 90% of my sales each month are from this one shirt.



I sell a few other designs each month - but if it weren't for this shirt, I wouldn't be making the checks that I am. It's nice when on the 16th of each month I get the mail and have a hundred extra dollars there for something I worked on a year ago.

Now that my checks are regular - I'm thinking about ways to increase my monthly check. I figure if I put in a few more hours of work - I should be able to increase those monthly checks without too much effort. Here's two things I plan on doing immediately:

- Increase the number of designs in the shop.
That's the only way I might hit some lucky popular design that does the same
as my current bestseller.

- Promotion.
I haven't done much in this department so far - who knows what this could add
to the checks. I started a new blog to promote my shirts as well as other ones that I like. ChewingGlass Tees.

What's really great about this is that I like to think of myself as creative - but I'm not a designer, but I'm able to make a nice passive income from CafePress. There are a ton of really talented designers that have some really great products. And there are a ton of really talented designers that are making a great income from CafePress. I've read in various articles and forums of people making six figures on CafePress. I don't know if it's true - but I do know that it's probably possible. Again - look at what I've done without trying too hard and think about what other people have done.

If you've ever thought of a funny t-shirt idea - here's your chance to make it a reality without any upfront costs. Who knows - maybe it'll make you some spare pocket change or maybe you'll be able to retire off of it :-)

Click and Comment Wednesday
Ok. They say that stealing is the best form of flattery. I guess I'm not really stealing Click and Comment Monday as who really owns such an idea? Who came up with it first? Got me. I'm sure somebody knows. But, it is something I like to do, though I'm not always on time and since it's Wednesday and not Monday, we'll just call it Click and Comment Wednesday.

It's a great solution if you're having writer's block and can't think of what to post on. Spend an hour or two clicking through blogs and reading posts. For me it's almost like a stream of conciousness exercise as you'll be amazed at the path of topics and posts you'll come across clicking from one blog to another. Writing should always follow reading. Reading is to writing like stretching is to running.

Another great reason to regularly click and comment is that you become a part of the larger blogosphere/internet, and people will come across your comments and come check out your site in return if they like what you say. So don't just click on random blogs and throw in a "Hey great site" comment, take some time and try to add something to the discussion. If a post has 20 comments, which ones are you going to click on? The "Hey nice site! My site: http:blah.blah.blah" or the thoughtful contributing ones? The thoughtful contibutors - duh! Most likely their sites are going to be like their comments - thought out.

Anyways - take some time, catch up on some reading, have a conversation.

Totally unrelated: Spider Pig, Spider Pig, Doing what a Spider Pig does. Hah! That's the funniest crap I've seen in a while - I can't wait to see the Simpsons movie. And just in case you're bored and have an hour or four to kill - the movie site is awesome. You can play games or even create your own Simpson's character like mine below...check it out.

Feed your Feed
Let me be honest, I'm not a big milk person. But that doesn't mean I don't love cows. I mean - ice cream, butter, chocolate milk is good, hamburgers...

Just kidding - I love cows. Especially John Cow. Did you know that agricultural livestock accounts for 17% of the methane in the atmosphere? That's a lot of gas. But don't let it ever be said that John Cow hasn't given us anything useful besides manure.

In fact - here's another one today. Old John Cow is starting a Feed Your Feed (feed like rss not feed like alfalfa).

So - want to take part? Want to boost your readership and help out some fellow bloggers at the same time? Want to increase your Technorati rank?

The rules are simple.

Copy the list below so that you create link backs for your blogging friends and then click the RSS feed link to subscribe to all of them. Then you add yourself and up to 5 other bloggers and their feeds to the end of the list before you publish it on your own blog. Show your friends some link love.

And as our wise bovine leader says: Just imagine if just 10 people would do this and then 10 more after them. That would get your blog 100 extra link backs and 100 extra feed subscribers!

More Articles and Moo?
I've had another article published at Associated Content. That brings the grand total of articles up to 5 - you can see them here - and I've been paid a total of $22.83 for the 5 articles. One I was paid $3 for, and another I was paid $7 for. I'm averaging in the $4 dollar mark. Not bad as each article is taking me about 15 to 20 minutes to write.

I just got a link to this blog on the front page of John Cow dot Com. It's a new blog - but that cow has been pulling in a ton of traffic right from the start. Must be the milk. So we'll see what kind of effect that link love has on my little blog.

Free Vegas Blog Added
Writing the articles for Associated Content made me want to create a blog to feature the Free Vegas series of articles that I have been publishing there.

So I created another blog titled Free Vegas / Sin City on a Budget. That brings the blog count up to 3. Free Vegas is going to focus on, well, free things to do in Vegas. Hopefully if you're on a budget and coming to Vegas I can help you find the free and cheap things to do in this city. Check it out - it's up, still a lot of work to do though.

I've got a new project that I'm working - I hope to have the details up sometime tomorrow or the next day. Harper's helping with this one.

Ban Cow Tipping!

Adbux Update - is it a scam?
There's been a lot of buzz over Adbux in the blogosphere lately.

Adbux News

Apparently it's just come to light that Adbux is owned by Chad French - the owner of Netbux. Netbux was a company that had some trouble a few years back and apparently owes money to people that were involved in the program.

Now - I don't know much about Netbux besides what I'm reading about it now, because I wasn't involved with it. And I'm not going to say that Adbux is a scam because there are a lot of people who are going to argue that and say that they are being paid by Adbux - but I do know this: that there are too many programs out there that don't have questionable management, and I don't want to waste my time.

Another blog I read said that he didn't know if it was a scam or not - but he said he hasn't invested money and that if you haven't invested money you shouldn't worry. He is planning on staying with Adbux until he feels that he is being scammed.

I feel as though you might not be scammed out of money right from your pocket - but what about the time invested.

For me - I'm not going to be promoting Adbux anymore, there are too many other projects for me to work on that are legit and that I'm having success with to waste my time on something that might not be.

Hey what's that?
Mom took this photo a couple of days ago - it's not at the pool, but a park. Harper's on the left and that's his friend Riley who's two. I thought this photo was pretty funny when I saw it.



We've been swimming the last few days since it's been so hot. We got Harper one of those little baby intertubes that he can sit in and float around the pool in. At first he was a little hesitant about the pool and clung to mom pretty tightly, but now that he's getting used to it, he's starting to really enjoy it.

It's hard to find a good time to go. About the only time we can go is around 4 oclock because the sun is low enough that part of the pool is shaded, but early enough that Harper isn't too cranky and ready to sleep.

He gets a big kick of me jumping into the pool and making it wavy. When the waves hit he kicks his legs and bounces in his tube - it's pretty funny.

Well here's the list of programs that I'm going to be focusing on. These are the ones that I've tried and that I like. Some of them are relatively new, while some I've been doing for a little while. Again - I think the real way to make money at these is by doing a few of them at the same time, and try to get some referrals. I've got 18 referrals for Hits4Pay and about 12 for DealsNCash. Some of them like Adbux and Clixsense I've only just started and have one or two referrals so far.

I'm going to categorize them in 3 categories: Pay to Read, Pay to Write, and Network Marketing.

Let's start with pay to write.

Pay to Write

Associated Content - 3 articles published for $14.50 and 3 referrals.
I've been talking about Associated Content a lot lately. I really like this one - it's actually taps some creative juices rather than just clicking on ads or something like that. It's one of my favorites out of all the programs.

Pay to Read

All of these programs work the same in that you are paid to look at ads, or like Treasure Trooper - take surveys or something similar. The important thing to do with these is to get some referrals as that increases your income without having to do too much yourself, plus there are only so many ads you can look at. So it you want to give one or all of these a shot - please click on my referral links and help me out a bit! =)

I cancelled my DonkeyMails Account today - it was just not up to par with these others. There were a lot of offers - but I got tired of them cluttering up my email and you are paid just fractions of a penny for each ad. Not worth the time in my opinion.

These others are easy to use, and what I usually do is open up a few browsers at one time and open up a few of these sites. So it only takes me a few minutes to look at all of my daily ads.

Hits4Pay - 18 referrals.
DealsNCash - 12 referrals.
Adbux.org - New, 2 referrals.
Clixsense - New, 2 referrals.
TreasureTrooper - Newest, a little different format - keeps it interesting.

Network Marketing

GDI - Global Domains International.

I still think that GDI has the most potential out of all of my programs. I have a website with a video on it that explains how it works. The site is http://www.cademarketing.ws (Cade is Harper's middle name). That's part of the program that you get your own .ws website when you start this program.

Anyways - those are the moneymakers I'm going to be using heavily. Hopefully I can get a few readers to sign up for them as well and help me out in my project. Other programs I'll still be using are of course my t-shirts on CafePress and things like Adsense in which I'm making a little bit - hopefully it will go up as my traffic increases.

If you have any questions about any of these programs feel free to email me at pwt5000(at)aol(dot)com. I'd be happy to chat with you about them!

Day 30 - Project 100
I'm almost a third of the way into my project here. I'm not where I would like to be, but I'm thinking positive and I think that as I go along the daily total is going to go up rather rapidly towards the end.

The past couple of days I've been focusing on ways to increase my traffic. Today I'm going to try to write a few more articles for Associated Content and clean up this blog a little. Some of the ads and links on here I'm going to be removing because I either don't like the programs after trying them a little, or because they're just not having the kind of click-through that I would like and therefore not needed.

I started with a lot of programs and I've tested all of them out. In the next day or two I think I'm going to eliminate the programs that I don't think will work right now, and try to focus on a few to see what happens when I really give each one some time to really develop. I'll post that list in the next day or two as I update my plan.

Program Updates
I wanted to write a quick update on which programs I've been using the last few days - which ones I like and which ones I don't.

Pay to Read

Hits4Pay
Hits4Pay is a Pay to Read/Click program. For every email you read you get 2 cents. Not much, but the key is to sign up other people to read as well. I have about 20 people signed up - so I get 1 cent for every ad that they read. I also get 1 cent for every ad that somebody they sign up reads. Generally I open up the ads in a browser while I'm doing something else and every minute or so I go back and click on the next ad after I get credit for each ad. You don't make a ton - but it does ad up as your network grows and it only takes a few minutes a day anyways.



DealsNCash
DealsNCash is owned by the same company that does Hits4Pay. It works the same way, but you for some of the ads you will receive up to 5 cents. It only pays on 1 level though, instead of two.



One of the biggest reasons I like Hits4Pay and DealsNCash is that both sites are super easy to navigate and both are very clean and simple to use. The exact opposite of that is DonkeyMails. Their site is confusing - there are quite a bit of offers, but you only get paid fractions of a penny for each read. So in the end it takes a lot more time than the other sites and you make less money.

In testing still - ClixSense and Treasure Trooper. Updates to come.


Pay to Write

Associated Content
I've had my first 3 articles accepted for payment for a total of $14.50. The money has already been deposited into my PayPal account - what else can you say!? Excellent.

Imagine if you had a piece of each .com domain sold. With GDI you can get a piece of each .ws (.website) domain sold. You get your own domain and can use it to promote your network. Check out my site: http://www.cademarketing.ws for more info.

Associated Content Widget
I've added a widget (I love that word, really, say it a few times...) to the left menu that has my articles that I've published on Associated Content. As I write this there is one that is published - with another that's been accepted, just not published, and a few that have yet to be reviewed.

Anyways, check out the widget on the left (hopefully more articles will be in there soon!) and try out Associated Content!

Back at it
Ok. So I took a couple of days off to play tour guide for the family in town. Plus - I think I was starting to go cross-eyed from all the time I was working on the computer.

But now it's time to get back into it.

Today I got my first two articles accepted at Associated Content. I got 7 bucks for the first one, and 3 for the second. I was pretty excited about that. Here's the first article: Free Vegas: Sin City on a Budget.

Also I just checked the traffic I've been getting the last couple of days and I've been getting some good traffic to GDI from the new ads I posted a couple of days ago.

Anyways - check back as I'll be hitting the project hard again this coming week. Happy Fourth!

Day 18 - Project 100
Vegas is hot in July. Scorching. And I'm a tour guide. We've been showing family the sites the last few days, playing tourists on the strip.

I haven't had much free time to work on this - but in the moments that I do I've been placing advertising to increase my affiliate network. Also - I've submitted more articles to Associated Content - but I'm still waiting for any offers. I have been having fun trying to come up with ideas, it's tough sometimes, but it's a good exercise.

I need to increase my affiliate network if I want to make any real money doing this stuff - so I've been placing a lot of ads, mostly for GDI, but also for Hits4Pay.

If you're interested in any of this stuff I've been talking about or been thinking about trying something out but hadn't done it yet - please, click on my referral links and sign up for a few and try them out. You can make money too. And you'd help me out! =)

Day 17 - Project 100
It's been over a day since I've posted - I feel like such a slacker! Hah. We have family in town - so it's been hard for me to get the time in on the computer that I really need to. Even though I haven't posted, I've been doing some other things for this project when I do get time.

It's hard when you have people come visit you in Vegas. I've lived a lot of places - and most of the time, like when I lived in San Antonio somebody comes, you show them the Alamo and then you go back home. Here in Las Vegas, it's like, ok, let's go to the strip. Home? Well, it's only midnight, things are just getting started. There are so many things that people want to see when the come visit you and you live in Vegas. Also, I thought I was getting more popular with friends and family - but I think this city might have something to do with the increase in family visits.

Anyways - I've been working on promoting the blog and trying to increase my traffic. I have noticed that there's been a decline in the number of sign ups and referrals I've been getting since I started the blog. I think it's mainly because I hadn't been promoting the programs as much as when I first started - and I've been focusing on shifting focus to this page.

There are three programs that I am really happy with and want to point people towards. Quick update - so far I'm not impressed with DonkeyMails ( <---no link even! ). I just started that one, but not too impressed yet, I'll let you know if that changes. There are three programs that I do like a lot. And the cool thing is that they're three different types of sites. A pay to read, a pay to write, and a referral program.

So please check these 3 out ( GDI, Associated Content, Hits4Pay ) and sign up if you want to help me out and make a little cash yourself in the process.

About Me: I am a new dad (well, Harper is a year old) and I'm already worried about his college education. Mostly because I'm still paying mine off.

So here it is: each step along the way about how to make $100 a day in 100 days...
