I find that I have very little time for blog hopping and leaving comments on my favourite blogs now that I’m doing some sponsored posts. Theres only that many hours in a day. Oh, I still read my favourite blogs especially those on my sidebar which I have subscribed to with my Bloglines feedreader but I usually just read them from Bloglines itself without visiting the actual pages. This saves me time.
That makes me a little sad since I have less interaction with my fellow bloggers this way but hey! A housewife has got to do what a housewife has got to do…… to earn a little extra to supplement her one income family.
Writing paid posts is a dream job for housewives like me. It gives me the opportunity to earn some income and still be right here at home to look after my kids. It gives me the opportunity to make money in my pyjamas! Normally I would try to write one or two sponsored posts before the kids awake. It feels really nice to have earned some cash before they get up for the day and require my attention.
However its not really easy to earn that money. It requires a lot of writing! Most companies which pays you to write require that you have one or two of your own original posts on your blog in between the paid posts. So that means I would be writing several blog posts in a day to fulfill that requirement. I try to write quality posts that go with the theme of each of my blogs and not just filler posts.
Oh, I have no problems writing because I love to write. Its only time I have a problem with. I wish I had moreÂ of the resource called TIME!Â Now the time I used to have for visiting blogs have been eaten up by the time I need to write blog posts. I really wish I had more time!
If you are a housewife like me, interested to earn a legitimate income, why not check out PayPerPost for a start?
I haven’t been blog hopping as frequent as before too. Like you I read from bloglines and usually just browse through…That is I haven’t even started writing paid post yet. Now that I have so much much plan in mind on homeschool, I lagi left with little time to read my favourite blogs
I’d really like to know more about your homeschooling plan.
[…] Iâ€™ve so much to do and yet so little time. I was reading MGâ€™s blog and realize how true it is that I too havenâ€™t been blog hopping much since last December. […]
yeah i understand why u didn’t come to my blog for so long. But still i visit yr blog once in a while 🙂
I do drop by your blog daily, only you don’t know it because I don’t comment and you can’t “see” me on your list of referrals since I’m reading you from bloglines. Thanks for understanding.
Same here, and with a few blogs to manage, time is really too previous!!!
Its really not easy to manage a few blogs eh? 🙂
hehe..u wish to have more time to read n write blog…but me wish to have more time to do my sewing stuff…*sigh*
Argggg…more hours plssssss!
Sewing. Ahh yes that too. My cross stitch is stalled for the time being but I’ll get to it, once I’ve settled down after moving.
Me too, me too! And you’ve even conquered WP *sob sob* I still can’t managed to put up my ads 🙁
Conquered WP? Nyah! Bryan just set up everything for me and I dare not touch anything. Just post post that is all. LOL!
*raise hand high high*
same here 🙁
hi MG, Thanks for taking the time to drop by my blog – saw you at myBlogLog. Take care!
You take care too!
Dun worry I visit you lah, if I got food I bring over ok? If buffet then I come say “Got food lai chiak” :o))
Thanks. You invite me, I sure “lai chiak” one because I very “tham chiak”.
Guess all housewifes think alike. More time to do more things n earn more pocket money 🙂
Must earn some pocketmoney to contribute to household income too right?
I know exactly how you feel. My bloghopping has dropped in the past few months, and I seriously miss it. I just need to find some balance, and maybe select a few that I need to (want to!) go and visit faithfully everyday. This “getting paid to blog” has seriously cut into my “free” time. (I work 2 part time jobs …). But, there is no way I am giving this up. I make, on a good day, MORE with blogging than I do with either one of the part time jobs. I like having the extra money, and being able to contribute to the finances in this way. And, like you mentioned in a different post … my checks go in a checking account that my husband manages (this is by MY request, so things get done “right”) — so the blogging money is mine …and I have actually stopped frivilous online shopping because I have a goal (a laptop!). So, its been benificial all the way around.
Oh – hi:) nothing like leaving a 10 page note my first visit here:) Sorry about that. Was just at the PPP boards, and read your comments, and thought I would stop by for a visit. Keep up the good work with blogging.
Hiya Carolyn, Thanks for visiting my blog. What a pretty one you have. I like your profile image on your blog. 🙂 There’s no way I’m giving this up too! Its good money and a legitimate way of earning it too. However it does eat up into the time for bloghopping. I hope I don’t make those who regularly visit my blog unhappy because I don’t visit theirs in return. Don’t want to be passed off as a snob, even online. Happy Blogging to you and I hope you meet your goal very soon. Cheers! 🙂
