Giving MyLikes The Thumbs Up

Seeing how it's been a little over a month since my post on mylikes I thought it was about time I did an update.  The post that introduced my readers to a way to monetize Twitter was titled How The Things I Like Can Make Me Money, explained how it all worked.that post included a widget that could be used in your sidebar thereby allowing more exposure to your 'likes' which would in turn increase your potential for earning money. Even though I haven't made proper use of the widget by placing it in the sidebar I still managed to earn $12 in the short time I've been using mylikes, and I haven't even been tweeting my 'likes' every day. Those that I have tweeted, a grand total of 24, means that I was earning about 50 cents a tweet. Considering I've only got about 500 followers I reckon that's pretty good. I know that some people will not join because they are afraid that their followers may see these 'sponsored' tweets as a form of spam, and to those people I assure you as long as you only tweet products or services that you feel could be of value to your followers I don't think you will have a problem. Something else you should consider is that you can only tweet a mylikes offer once a day and if you're someone who tweets a lot I doubt very much that anyone will hold one tweet against you. That plus the fact…

Stand By Me And We Will Become Better Bloggers

I got a link in my email today that lead me to a site where I was able to listen to the old song Stand By Me by Ben E. King. I've always liked this song but this time when I listened to it I was blown away as it involved the participation of musicians from around the world, adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe. I immediately tweeted the song to give it more exposure and so that my followers could listen to what I believe is an inspirational song. Problem is that I know not everyone who follows you on Twitter will always click on a link and so I thought it best to post it on this blog, along with a little poem I threw together for the occasion. As long as the Net exists People will move about Bloggers will come and bloggers will leave But I will always be around As long as you stand by me If I get put down on If I was to get abused If the A Listers should mock me It won't matter, it won't mean a thing Just as long as you stand by me It's so hard if you stand all alone There's only so much one person can do If only we can learn to stand by one another, you'll see That we are no longer alone So please won't you stand by me. Even though the title of the blog is stand by…

How Commentluv And Keyword Luv Can Boost Your Comments

I know there are a lot of blogs out there and I also know it would be a false assumption to think that all those blogs exist purely so they can earn money. This is something that many A Listers assume and the main reason behind this false assumption is because they see so many blogs with ads on them. Kristi, who amongst other things is famous for her Fetching Friday series, left a couple of comments in my last post, a post that put forward scientific proof as to why some A Listers are Assholes, saying she thought it funny how many people equated success by the amount of money they earn. She then goes on to say, in regards to her blog; It couldn’t be because I simply enjoy blogging, or I find my success in getting more tweets / comments. :) Exactly, and as long as those people are visiting our blogs why not have adsense and other revenue earning adds on our blogs, even if they're only there to cover the hosting and domain name costs. Now this post isn't about having a go at the A Listers, it's about showing others how they can get more people to their blog so that, like Kristi and others, myself included, they can have the satisfaction of getting those extra tweets and comments. When commenting on other blogs I don't bother at all checking to see if they are do-follow or not, what I do look for are those using…
