You got it right. One of my blogs finally got approved by PayU2Blog after so many tries in a long long time. It was only last night when I saw an email that Rona’s Reviews passed its requirements. But the whole process wasn’t easy though.
The long journey of this great news for my reviews site was like a battle. After the first email from payu2blog whom have expressed that this particular blog was the only qualified one among the rest of my submissions to them, I was then asked to delete the text links on it so as to be pre-approved. This was such a big task for me. I had to thoroughly look into my blog and tried my best to meet their requirements. It’s good though that I have finished the contract of pasting the sponsored text links on my blog.
This getting approved by payu2blog must be a good one. I am positively looking forward for assignments that will be assigned to me. I’m so excited for the opportunities that will come my way from them!
Here’s the brand new dashboard that I have achieved getting into! May it be filled with assignments and opportunities in no time! Ajah to me and congratulations to Rona’s Reviews!
Here I am. Finally writing something to add up in this long-forgotten blog. Thought that I need to update now so as to keep this blog going. I missed this site already.
Talking about designs and blog makeover. I have been browsing free and cheap premade designs that would look great on my reviews site. Well, it took like two nights until my heart saw something excellent. Aside from they aren’t my style, premade themes were expensive too. I didn’t think that they are that pricey! Just then that I realized why, it’s because designers have been making templates in Genesis Framework which is not free. So themes using this framework is included in your payment along with the chosen theme you are purchasing. It is because you have to have this right in your wordpress dashboard in order for your theme to work on your blog. I was thinking, that I really have been away too long already since the last time I designed blogs. Be needing to familiarize myself with everything again once I’ve got time for it. I actually tried tinkering on my other site last night and my brain had to adjust pushing it to remember my routines in designing.
In the long run, I ended up browsing templates again online and glad that I finally have loved something! Here’s a free theme from http://www.bluchic.com which is now installed on my site! I just fell in love with its simplicity and overall look. So professional but chic!
I so love the page numbers! I’ve been meaning to have this one on my blogs ever since!
So nice, right? My next project is this site and have to get this over with soon. I might be looking around for free templates again.
Hello pals! If you are a frequent reader of this designs site of mine, I am sure that you felt my absense from designing for the past months. It’s because I’ve been busy especially now that I decided to pursue studying so that I can qualify to take the LET or the Licensure Exam for Teachers. Blogging and designing is just being inserted if I have time. As I am also attending in the school library during my free time, you will still feel my absense from the online world. Well, I just hope that I could finish archiving and cataloging the books. I am a librarian from scratch and it is such a challenge to be working alone. Imagine how hard it is for me to arrange and archive those books that I needed to search the web to help me with it.
But that busyness did not prevent me from learning to tweak and design in the WordPress platform, which I have been aiming to achieve since I started designing blogs last year. It’s because I have transferred my blogs now to WP from Blogger. And I heard that this platform attracts more DA’s. I needed that before I call the Bankruptcy Attorney NYC. Lol. Yep, you heard it right! The opportunities that come lately is not enough to sustain my needs right now since I am thinking of earning more to buy a new laptop or a better cellphone. It’s good though that I now know how to design in wordpress! I could start earning from it soon! If busyness from studies would get in the way, well it’s the priority anyway…. Do you happen to know some Bankruptcy Attorney NYC to recommend if ever I start needing advises? Lol!
Oh and by the way, I am still polishing the design of my fashion and giveaway site, Women’s Choice but I’m happy that I was able to copy the original design of it from Blogger on my very first try! You can go look at it HERE.
I’ve been away for ages from this blog and I just couldn’t let it die because I have readers here who subscribed to be updated with my new posts. Forgive me for making you wait. But then, here I am blogging tips for you again! So, this time, I’ll be giving you tips on how to earn from your blog site/s may it be in Blogspot/Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr or any other platform. The target of this article are those bloggers who are just beginning to make their own site.
When I first started blogging, I never thought that my established blog site would earn me bucks. It was hard during the first few weeks that prolonged to months and months of waiting because all I really wanted was to earn. So, if you are like me who is just starting to make your own blog site and updating it with posts that is of true value and help for your readers, let me tell you that you need to be VERY patient. Earning money online from blogging isn’t that easy. But also, lose no hope for you will get to earn. And when you start earning, there’s no way to stop. I promise.
Now, this question comes next. What do you need to do in order to make your owned blog site a money earning site.
1. Establish a good count of informative and useful articles. Let that become a compilation or series of posts that you enjoy reading back all over again. I do this a lot. And I actually give myself appreciation for seeing that even though English is not my first language, seeing my articles makes me happy. The key is, the more you write, the more you improve.
2. Make your site a friendly site and easy to navigate. Always be certain that your readers can have an access to all your blog posts by integrating pages or blog archives on the sidebars.
3. Make sure that all of those articles are originally yours. You will be needing this honesty so as to win advertisers to hire you and approve your site. Also, when posting pictures that are derived from the web, always give credit to the site or owner of that particular photo because you will not want that to be a copyright issue. Many image owners in the web are very particular with this that they search if their photos are being used illegally. Be very careful.
3. Socialize with other bloggers. Make friends by blog hopping, commenting and visiting their blogs regularly. That way, you’ll earn traffic to your site daily.
4. Submit your blog/s and get listed to search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etcetera… for your articles’ exposure. Just search for tutorials online that will help you on how to do this. This way, unique visitors will be led to reading your articles for research purposes. I’m sure that your works will pop out on the list that relates mostly to what they need.
5. Hunt for sites that hire bloggers to make reviews and articles to advertise their products, sites or services. Try your best to be approved. I’ve been there. I was denied for many times and after so many tries of insisting and trying my best to meet their requirements, I was finally approved and actually receiving tasks and assignments from advertisers.
I’ve provided links to blogger hiring sites below. Just click on them and that should lead you to its homepage.
Howdy folks! Here I am again. Giving you tips and easy to follow tutorial.
Today, I am going to help you how to activate that ‘Read More’ function on your every post with thumbnail on the side.

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Have you been earning from your blogs lately? I do hope so!
Well, about me, I am just so grateful for the wonder of internet. If last week, I was very desperate for blog opportunities because it seemed like my blogs are hungry for them for a long time now as well as my Paypal account for the income. LOL! I even shouted it out on Facebook and lovely friends suggested some links. Mind you. I signed up on all their recommendations and guess what? None from them gave me an opportunity just yet. So, with all effort, I researched via google on blog hiring sites for opportunities. Voila! There was one!
One of my applications thru email was noticed and there I found a reply from one of the blog hiring sites! Actually, it was not a company or website, it was only an email address. They are hiring interested bloggers for regular tasks for as long as your blog ranks 1 on Google. From that reply, they immediately gave me a task by writing anything I want that ranges from 50 to 100 words provided that I input a link in my post. So far, I already submitted 2 blog posts consecutively within 5 days and was paid shortly as soon as I finish an assignment. The pay may not be that much ($5), but how is it gonna be when the opportunity is regular for writing any topic you love, right?
If you are interested on giving this a shot yourself, just send Mr. Matt a message to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not forget to introduce your blogs and willingness to work with them.
That’s all for now, as I am preparing myself to design another blog. This means another moolah! Ciao!
Someone asked me about how to get the mylot code and button after she has read my previous post. Yeah, i forgot to say in that article that mylot only provides the button but not the codes. Once again, I did this tutorial in order to help other Mylot users as well.
So here’s what you’re going to do:
1. Go to Mylot. Click EARNINGS and scroll down to WEBSITE BANNERS. Choose one that you like best.
2. Right-click on that banner/button you chose. Click SAVE AS, and save it to your desktop.
3. Upload that button to photobucket.com. (sign up to create an account there if you still don’t have one, for this is the best online photo compiler that automatically provides codes to images) Once the button is uploaded, hover your mouse over that button and copy the DIRECT LINK.
4. The code below is where you’ll put the DIRECT LINK of the button in photobucket as well as your REFERRAL LINK that is found on your Mylot Dashboard under REFERRAL.
In my 2 years of blogging, I also have gained blogger friends from across the world. As I was very excited and happy of a comment that I received from Mai, there she was requesting the code of one of my blogs’ badge too, to be featured in her site. That is like a sparkling comment that stood out of the rest! From the time that I received it, without further thinking and setting aside blog posting and hopping for a while, I immediately messaged her through facebook together with my code!
And yeah! Don’t you think that this designs site’s badge looks so good on her site’s sidebar? LOL!

Just last week, while updating my blogs and was wide awake at exactly 2 in the morning, I received an email notification of my payment from Blogsvertise! I was really happy because all I thought, there was something wrong with it since I’ve been waiting to be paid the moment I finished an assignment from them. Good thing that a friend on Facebook enlightened me that Blogsvertise forwards payment at the end of the month or the 30th day after completing the task.
There is always joy and excitement when extra moolah comes into my Paypal account, may it be big or small, I’m very thankful for whatever the amount is. It’s just fair to be happy and thankful, right? And so, I’ll always be blogging about these kind of good news! And congratulations to Rona’s Reviews for earning this moolah! More to come! Cheers!
