This is why……

/Edit: Its wordpress…hopefully this theme works with the header I have…when wordpress stops being a bitch and lets me upload.  I like this theme/Edit



SO has asked me plenty of times why I don’t make websites professionally and the reason…the real reason is…sometimes it frustrates the hell out of me.

Last night I was going to edit the theme to match the rest of my site and wordpress kept (and is still) giving me an error when I try to upload a new header. I was literally screaming at my laptop last night.

I may have to change the theme… maybe its the theme not wordpress that is giving me an error. 

Wifi is acting normal for now

I was offline all weekend but not because I wanted to be, the buildings wifi kept dropping me so I spent my weekend catching up on PPL and I am caught up to current although I haven’t watched yesterdays episode yet…I am thinking I may wait until I have the final episode and then watch it and be done with it….as I did for Vampire diaries when that ended.

I was pleasantly surprised when i checked my stats and found my blog was rather popular yesterday, 47 hits and none of them were me. The contest is still open, refer to this post until June 24th so you can still get your entries in. I will buy the game after the contest closes on the 24th at eight pm EST and contact the winner that night or on the 25th, which I will also make a blog post announcing who won.

I also added a new site to apps & surveys that pay page, so check it out if you like magazines. SO and I have talked, we are both sick of the wifi dropping, he is especially when he is at my house so he is going to give me half of the fee for getting a internet connection in my name…planning that for when I get paid next week since they need a card on file. It makes sense as I make more money when I have a constant wifi signal then when I don’t.

Good Wednesday Morning

I started off this morning at four and started to check my main email which currently (and always it seems) has over 1500 emails in the inbox. These emails are mostly surveys from the different survey companies I am a member of and email from different communities or panels I have been invited too. Some are companies that held contests and now I get their emails, ect.

I had a couple of emails from bloglovin and I came across in one of those emails, I remember watching her show when I actually had the food network channel. So for the last two hours instead of checking email, I have been on her site.

I am enjoying a cup of coffee and putting off hanging up this laundry that we did last night and BF rung out before he left for class. Tried out some detergent that I got in a sample last month from and it smells so good.

I am planning (please note I said planning) on doing a couple of product reviews this weekend as I have gotten (and bought) some new things in the last couple of weeks. I’d rather do them when He is not here so maybe tomorrow or Friday I can get one or two done.

Seven tips if you want to make money online

A couple of days ago a friend mentioned to me that she heard that there was an app that could make you thousands of dollars by just sitting on your phone. I honestly told her it was a scam but she seemed to want to argue with me. Instead of going that route I told her the apps that I use to make money via pay-pal or amazon that I have personally been paid by.

There isn’t an app out there that will pay you thousands of dollars a month by just having it installed, period. I’m sure there are apps that claim to make you thousands a month, but it’s a scam.

I have listed the apps & survey sites I have been personally paid by: #1 & # 2

– Make a separate email account just for online making money opportunities. I personally use Gmail and I have several gmail accounts for several things. I use the same email for the making money online & this blog.

– Use the same email for the sites you sign up with & with pay-pal. A lot of sites pay via pay-pal, so make sure the email you use with pay-pal is the same email you sign up on the sites with.

– Check your email a couple of times a week, if not every day. I check my main email, several times a day. A missed survey opportunity is missed money. A lot of surveys full up quickly and some only offer surveys for a couple of hours or for a set number of people.

– Always check through email that ends up in your spam box, don’t just delete spam. I’ve had surveys and other thing send up in spam, that weren’t spam. Again just deleting with out checking can sometimes mean missed money.

– Sign up for several different sites and keep them bookmarked, check these sites a couple of times a month.

– You can check if you are not sure if a site is a scam.

– Don’t pay money to a survey site, if a site is real….they will pay you. You don’t have to pay money to make money.

A little bit of good news

If you been reading old blog posts you’d know that myself, being on a fixed income, I am apart of several survey panels which is my way of making some extra money (whether its through paypal or amazon) each month. I use my income monthly to take care of what I need (rent,bills,ect) so I use the surveys as something extra for what I want. Now sometimes I am invited to exclusive panels and right now (although I won’t mention which) I am in about five of these panels that I was invited too. Some run a couple of months, but a lot run for a year and they pay (some at the end, some during and they all run sweepstakes).

I just checked one of my emails and had an email from one of these panels that I was chosen as the winner of a sweepstakes, very excited about that and wanted to share a bit of good news. Honestly I haven’t won anything since back in September when I won that amazon GC.

Making money online ; Part 2


Survey site that pays in points, if you don’t qualify they still give you 5 points and after every survey you have a chance to play their poll predictor which gives you a chance to win prizes. I have cashed out with them once via amazon, they offer other gift cards as well as paypal.



This site is different it’s not really just surveys, it is more like a community with polls, topics, surveys and discussion. They pay in points (different things offer different points) and the pay via amazon gift cards. I have cashed out with this company twice (as of today) and its a fun place to expression your own personal opinions.


Mobile Performance Meter: app in google play store

The device runs in the background on your phone and pays 5 points a day, offers many different ways to cash out (mostly gift cards).


Making money online ; is it possible

You are not going to making a living doing surveys and there is not a survey company out there that will pay you hundreds of dollars a month even though there are those who promise, its a scam, but most do pay and it takes time. Everyone wants a quick way to make money without putting in any effort or time, guess what… isn’t going to happen. I am going to give you the survey companies I use and apps that I use that actually pay, some pay by check, some pay by paypal and almost all of them offer rewards in gift cards…most offer rewards through amazon.

Smart Panel:

Install an app on your smartphones & laptop, keep it there and they will pay you five dollars a month for having the app installed. You have to wait thirty days (after you’ve made ten dollars), they pay via paypal and I have cashed out twice. They also email surveys sometimes and I’ve done a couple of those and received gift cards for amazon. The app takes up little space and its free money, for doing nothing.


This site offers PTC (paid to click), surveys, offers. If you just do their paid to click ads it will take you forever, the money is in their surveys. I have been paid by check (the first time you cashout with them, your only option is a check as they want to verify addresses, after that you can get paid online), they do not offer paypal anymore but they offer tango who has amazon gift cards. I have been paid by this company twice now.


This site offers surveys that fill up quickly so you have to stay on top of your email, I have cashed out with them twice via amazon GC.


This is an app available in the google play store and similar to the smart panel, keep it installed and they pay in points (10 a day) which after time you can cash out via amazon, I’ve cashed out twice with this app. They also offer surveys.

Panel app:

This is another app in the google play store, leave it installed and answer quick surveys to rack up your points (mostly about places you have gone during certain days), you can wait until have enough points for a gift card or check or you can use your points and try to win one. I won a gift card from them and cashed out twice.




Revamp and updates

I haven’t really been working on my site as of late, I am planning on doing a site-wide revamp coming up next month, probably next weekend. I have been sick and in pain, as the weather here in Buffalo has been warm-cold-warm-raining-snow-repeat and it’s messing with my allergies & my arthritis.

Coming in this revamp is new layout/theme, new subpages, ect.

I have moved my linked fanlistings off wordpress and you can find them at
