Why Do I Do This Crazy PayPerPost Stuff Anyhow?

Given the controversy surrounding payperpost, one might almost say it’s a gamble working with them. Aren’t I risking my online reputation for a few bucks?

Perhaps, although I really don’t see it that way.

I find many of the opportunities to be fun. The video I did earlier today was quite challenging, both in how to do it and actually doing it.

Despite what some detractors may say about “Posties”, we do get to give our honest opinions. Most are willing to take label their opportunities neutral, which means you do not have to write only positive things. So you can be frank about what you feel. Yes, some do require positive reviews only, in which case I very rarely do more than look at the opp. Encouraging honest opinions makes much more sense to me.

I love learning about some of the sites out there I’d probably never notice otherwise. I love getting paid to write about them. I love that one site I had been wanting to write about came up at PayPerPost, so I got paid to do a review I had been wanting to do anyhow.

PayPerPost Rube Goldberg

I can’t believe the mice wouldn’t help me with this one. I went ahead and took the time to find out how to download a movie onto my computer, first time ever, so I could do this payperpost project.

Here’s how the whole Rube Goldberg thing went. Dropped a ball down the digeridoo, which hit more balls, which dropped onto a rolling pin, which rolled down and hit the Earth (ball), which knocked over a box, which knocked over another box, which pushed a toy truck, which pushed over a stack of Legos, which pushed over another stack of Legos, which knocked over a block, which knocked over a Lego, which knocked a ball down an oven mitt, which hit a brick in the barn, which hit the barn door, which knocked the coins all over the paper with PayPerPost written on it. Phew!

Added the PayPerPost Disclosure

In the footer of this blog I’ve added a disclosure generated by the Disclosure Policy Generator. I’ve been pretty open about this whole PayPerPost thing, but let’s face it. There will be times when I won’t mention it, and it’s good to have it out in the open that I do this.

The generator does a good job and is good even if you aren’t taking money for making blog posts. It covers that possibility. Will anyone use it aside from PayPerPost people? Who knows. But here’s the policy I generated: Read the rest of this entry »

Watching PayPerPost Fun

You just have to love watching a good show. And the PayPerPost Wedding certainly qualifies for that.

I love seeing what companies come up with to get the word out. It’s also fun getting procrastinating couples to go ahead and tie the knot in Vegas.

There are those who would accuse me of procrastinating marriage, but in reality my husband and I didn’t put off getting married, as we got married 7 months after becoming engaged. We put off dating. Only knew each other for 10-1/2 years before getting married, and only maybe 2 years of that was dating.

However, the couple I voted for didn’t really have that problem. And wouldn’t you like to know who I voted for??? Do you really think I’m going to tell you? Read the rest of this entry »

Checking Out the PayPerPost Forums

PayPerPost works hard to keep its “Posties” happy. They have a nicely active forum for people to post questions, problems or just discuss stuff in general.

I’ve checked out the PayPerPost forums a time or two, but never quite gotten around to joining. I have a decided lack of questions so far, as well as not being familiar enough with a lot of things to provide answers. But I have had some fun reading them and gotten some great insights.

I think the one challenge I had was in discovering them. There doesn’t appear to be a link in the blogger’s section of PayPerPost. It’s on the home page of the site, however. I spent a while going through my blogger dashboard looking for them before finally thinking to check the home page. Maybe I’ve missed it.

I love reading the opps that other people have enjoyed writing about. It doesn’t matter that the opp often is no longer available.. it’s seeing the enthusiasm and unusual ideas that people come up with that is so much fun.

Am I earning money doing this? Well, all my posts are still pending approval, but including this one I will have earned about $40. Not exactly big bucks but a nice addition. I’m happy about it.

Update:
Yes, I’ve joined and participated.
