Blogging For Money results

First of all, I apologise for the delay in announcing the winner of the Blogging For Money Review Contest which ended about two weeks ago. Its not like I have forgotten about it and I have every intention on fulfilling my pledge to reward the best review with RM1,000.00 as I have promised months ago. I have been very busy as of late, managing my web directories and starting a company is hard work, no doubt about it.

Reading the reviews, there is no doubt in my mind that there are only two reviews which deserve to win the prize. Which is a problem, since I couldn’t make up my mind on which review I should reward the full RM1,000.00 to without being biased to the other. Should I just split up the prize money into half and give both of them? You tell me. If I can actually do that without ruffling some feathers, I will announce the winners A.S.A.P.

Otherwise you will have to wait until after Ramadhaan for me to decide.

    1. Just to let you know that I respect your decision. Being the organizer of this contest, you’ve every right to change the rules of this contest. And I respect that.

    2. Hello

      I am not usually into blogging any such personal matters however I am very confused at the moment and thought this might help.

      Me and my bf have been together for 3 years we share a property and a child who is one years old. From the outside we have it all but recently our argunments have taken a turn for the worst. Everytime we argue he either pulls me round my my hair or strangles me for a short period of time until I back down. I never thought that i would find myself in this position but here I am questioning if I should stay with this man for the sake of love.

      The give you a picture of what I mean the recent outbust happened last Saturday when after we attended a family fun day everything kicked off over a car. Basically we where joking that some expensive car in the car park would be ours like you know ‘thers oout car haha’ then suddenly he turned around and said – when you finished this degree (im training to be an accountant) I will be buying this fin car and nothing you will say can stop me. Now I havent been raised in a way in which men speak to women or anyone in such a matter which he often does so I hit the roof with the usual why do you have to be such an arsehole why do you feel the need to talk to me like tht blah blah blah. To cut a long story short this exploded resulting in him grabbing the wheel of my car until I pulled over. He then tried to grab the baby out of the car to which I started pushing him out. He then began choking me infront out son and took him out of the car and started walking away on the roadside. I ran after him and threatened to ring th epolice from which he grabbed my phone and throw it into the bushes and threw me away. I then rang my mother who came to help and he started to calm down.

      He agreed to return our son back to the car and return home then 3 police cars pulled up as a memeber of the public had rang up to report him. The police pulled me inside and asked if he had struck me and I lied – I know it sounds stupid but I didnt want him to get into trouble. So they said I could change my statement and sent me on the way. I left with my mother and father and son humiliated at what had happend.

      When I rang him he was playing football (local team) and tried to say tht the passer by had over reacted and that I was at fault. He said I shouldnt have kicked off and thts just the way he talks and I should just deal with it! He said ‘if you cant stand the heat get out of the fire’.
      My father was also unsympathetic branding me a drama queen and my mother said never mind how you felt imagine how I felt pulling up to see 3 police ocars there – even the police officer was shocked by my mothers reaction telling her to back off a little and put herself in my shoes. I suppose these are seperate issues however I now have to live with my parents for the next 6 months or so while I get sorted. I love my parents but I often feel they have got the wrong idea from me and problems with my mother stem from very early childhood.

      I know that I do have deeper insecurity issues which do make me fly off the handle at time however I dont think I should be treat this way. My bf is adamentn however I am worse then what i percieve myself – which if I am anything like my own mother I can in a way empathise with this.

      Although my parent are lettign me stay ther and do not think i should go back I dont know if I can handle the constant controlling ways of my mother – who I know is trying to care for me but is often just interfering with the most personal spects of my life – i.e money how I live my life which is why I left home at such a young age in the first place. Added to this he will keep our family home and I am concerned for my son living with me in the tinyest box room ever.

      When I have visited the house I have felt deeply sad that it isnt mine anymore – my little hideaway fromt he world decorated to my tase etc with all of mine and my sons belongings however I cannot accept responsibilty to my bf until he recognises there is a problem.

      I suppose my question is can relationship problems like this be over come? Am I overreacting to what has happened? Can you push someone to hurt you? Are my parents attitude a true reflection to the person i really am which quite frankly would mean a bit of a messed up one?

      Any advise would be greatly appreciated esp by hose who have been in a similar situation I am very confused at the moment.
      Can I just point out it wasnt the fact he wanted to buy a car – its the way he told me he was that I reacted to – swearing and telling even though I had not disputed the fact or told him he ‘could not’.

    3. The garbage on the web, especially blogging by uneducated morons campaigning for their political parties and candidates is overwhelming.

      This is especially true, as usual of democrats. The propaganda disseminated by Liberal Democrats is incredible.

      Getting past that is really difficult, but, I have found a few threads that are really interesting.

      In 2004 Greenspan warned about the problems with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.http://www.federalreserve.gov/...../20040224/

      The governor of Illinois shot Greenspan down. http://www.federalreserve.gov/.....efault.htm

      Fannie Mae vomited garbage about how great they were including mentioning that they were selected by Fortune as one of the best managed corporations. http://www.ofheo.gov/media/pdf.....ologos.pdf

      Greenspan came back in 2005 with a discussion about credit.http://www.federalreserve.gov/.....efault.htm

      If you have a home you know that getting a mortgage and making payments really kicks your credit rating up and you get flooded with offers, most from credit predators.

      My preliminary assessment is that predatory subprime lenders targeted people who then made payments, established better credit and became the victims of predatory credit card lenders.

      This began coming to a head in 2003 to 2005. The eventual response of the Bush admin was to lobby for bankruptcy law changes which appears to have made the whole mess worse.

      Now before all you liberal demophytes who are incapable of research jump on this issue remember that Dems were talking about how stable the credit markets, particularly Fannie May and Freddie Mac were. Dems blocked any other legislation.

      McCain voted for the Bankruptcy law and Obama voted against it, do your own research for those links.

      My preliminary assessment is that essentially the changes in Bankruptcy laws were meant to stabilize the credit markets, but, what they did was encourage predatory credit companies to further target people with subprime mortgages.

      In my opinion the extended credit and changes in bankruptcy laws are secondary causes to the current crisis. Too much credit and reduced ability to structure debt forced people into mortgage foreclosure which caused the crash.

      FYI, it looks like 40% of the recipients of these predatory lending practices were new (illiterate)college grads. You know, the Obama supporters. Preliminary results are this group got the most credit, mismanaged money and screwed up the worst. Do your own research.

      Anyone else researching the issue finding similar data or have different well researched and educated opinions on the subject?
      Nunya, once again your ridiculously uneducated blather is worthless.

      The Democratic party has a history of propaganda going back to the bigot and NAZI supporting William Randolph Hearst (D).

      The Democrats are a genocidal political party and I have posted more than enough easily to research data to prove that beyond a doubt.

      If you had actually read any of my posts on this subject you would know that I have identified predatory mortgage brokers specifically who essentially conned both borrowers and underwriters…..wasting time on facts with you is useless.

      There are some very good answers and I appreciate them.

      The situation is a set of dominoes and I am trying to identify the dominoes.

      Thanks for those who helped.

    4. I live in Michigan. My husband and I were both laid off. I’m a Medical Assistant and he’s a window cleaner. We attempted to start our own window cleaning business when he was laid off but it went no where and ended up costing us money. We try doing side work such as cleaning, mowing, fixing stuff, general labor for family/friends. I can make crafts however to start up costs money and honest to hell right now we do not have $2 for gas. Everything has a start up cost. We tried online gaming to no prevail, blogging with the same result, mturk makes about $10 a week. We tried everything we could think of. We can’t get back into school unless one of us is pulling in enough to support the family. We have been on the job hunt for 4 months now and together have put in more than 300 resumes. The problem is no one is hiring. We are taking extra little classes to improve our resumes but it’s not helping. Not even minimum wage jobs are hiring. We can’t move out of state because again that would take money to do. We are stuck and about to lose our home. We have no where to go but the homeless shelter which is already overflowing so probably not taking new residents. What the hell do we do? How can we make money?
      Again, I’m not kidding I don’t have a dollar for start up costs. Not a dollar. We have tried selling things online and have sold half of what we own so that is no longer an option. The only thing we have left are our couch and a lamp.

    7. I have post several blogs about video games (http://www.cheapassgamer.com/f.....p?u=188986) and it seems that all this hard work results in a few comments and that’s it. I feel like I should be doing this as a career, but I’m just too scared to post my address on a website that only one person has mentioned. Does anybody know a reputable blogging site or gaming magazine where I can earn money?

      Thanks for the help!

    8. I purchased this book the other day and i received it today. I have been searching the internet about this book , i’ve been searching to see if anyone has had any good results from the 28 day journey rhonda gives us. I am very excited about this book and i can’t wait to get started. I won’t be doing this book for selfish reasons eg. money, cars etc. I just like the fact that you are given exorcises so in a way it’s more than a book. I will probably document my 28 journey , so i was just wondering if you know any good blogging sites ?

      Have you done the 28 journey ?

    9. Im 18 and have constanly been reading and listening to books about passive income, via various streams, and have decided maybe to start a small question thread here to post ideas and also ask for ideas from the community so we can all benefit from one another’s ideas. Basically the idea is to own a business that makes you money while you do nothing, so you dont physically have to make the money yourself.

      Some of my ideas include things such as:

      Coin Operated vending machines (i have heard however that these are becoming increasingly harder to make money off of as although there are always locations, the returns are not necessarily incredibly huge, and finding locations and emptying/refilling the machines as well as collecting the money do take some time.)

      Coin operated laundry machines. (laundromat)
      i love this idea because you can make the business on your own so finding the locations is no problem at all, and the returns are likely better than the vending machines as well. also, these could be used in your rental properties if you use those for passive income too.

      Rental properties
      i love this idea for the fact that if you get educated in real estate, you can get better deals than the average guy resulting in less headaches and loss if you happen to have problems with tenants. i love the idea of charging more than the mortgage cost so as to get payed monthly, as well as having your tenants essentially buy you a property over a certain amount of time. everyone buys where they live, it’s just a matter of if someone is buying where they live and instead of keeping it for hemselves, basically giving it to you.
      Advertisements
      i know there are companies who will pay you by the month/year etc to place a small (or large who knows) advertisement on your vehicle for their business. if you have 2, 3, 4, or even just one vehicle, wouldnt it be smart to do this even if you dont really drive it? i know there are some however who pay based on the milage accumulated, but still if you are getting payed to drive somewhere you actually have to go anyways, i think thats pretty cool
      Blogging
      this is not for me but ive read that many people who have blogs or are internet savvy can make even small residual incomes for just creating a blog. this does take initial startup time and you obviously have to write the blogs, but you still make money while you sleep.
      Business
      if you can own a business that makes money without you being there. if you can make enough profit to pay a manager to manage instead of you, once the building is payed off (you have to own the property obviously), there you go.
      another twist on this would be a car wash, because you could own the car wash and the land, and eventually when you have payed it off, will reap the full profits, have been payed for the past so many years anyways from that car wash, and have barely ever done work or needed to be there to sustain it.

      I know there are thousands of other ideas out there. Got any in mind?
      Also a self serve gas station.
      Self-storage facility people store their own stuff in your space, you never have to be there, and you make money

    11. I’m sometimes confused with my parents; I don’t really understand what they want from me.

      – Mum once said she hates the way I don’t take those ‘nonsense miscellaneous memories’ into my brain. Even I always think it’s a good thing, so I do get good grades at school as I rather remember what are actually important.

      But what she said to my brother, ‘You better concentrate with your study! Not those nonsense stuff!’

      – When I started selling things and blogging for money, those things which really take my time should be called ‘good jobs’ as I do have an effort in living on myself. She just slagged off ‘Am I not giving you enough money? Why don’t you ask for more? Or you think we’re that pitiful?’

      But another day, she bawled ‘If you think you can ever make money, then go! And don’t ever come back to ask me for help!’

      [I don’t understand whether she wants me to live on her money or not….]

      – Dad complained me once that I talk ‘too indirectly’. So he couldn’t understand me.

      But recently, he said ‘You’re too straight’ when I told him ‘Now, I don’t know’ instead of saying ‘I will be knowing’ as I used to.

      – Mum and I were talking about my hairstyle, with my problem in speaking(because I was in a serious mind-shocking state which resulted as I couldn’t speak for a year), she eventually didn’t understand me.

      So we ended up arguing, but, then she yelled ‘What is your brain used for? Why can’t you just understand me?’

      – Mum taught me to be confident in my own look ‘don’t care what other people think of you, you’re yourself’

      But today she just said ‘Why don’t you be ashamed with your embarrassing look? It’s so disgusting…’

      [she said that just because I don’t want to have my hair cut, my natural curly-messy hair what I’ve got from her…Do I have to have my hair short just because it’s not straight? I’m not even a boy…]

      – Mum said ‘I don’t want you to download those films off, that’s stealing! If you want some tell me, we rather buy them’

      But when I asked her about them, she simply said ‘You’re too lavish! You shouldn’t pay for things you don’t have to buy…’

      – Mum’s gone crazy every time me and my brother fight…She said she never expect to have TWO VIOLENT SONS

      But she never mention times she had me bleeding…

      – Mum doesn’t like me to lose my virginity too early, so she’s irritated when I hooked up with a boy

      But when I hook up with a girl, she called me an ‘androgyny’

      – Parents do say I’m ‘too quite’

      But they always think I’m ‘provocative’ when I speak

      – Parents do want me to be an honest person

      But they do never define my opinions as ‘acceptable’ ones.

      I don’t know what to say from now…I’m just a normal teenager, a girl who does have friends, be good at school, not mad at games, not psychic, not candy, not mean, not crazy at boys nor trying to be witch. I don’t kill even a little fly nor put my feet on the table.

      I just never know how can I survive from parents? Don’t know weather I’m not good enough?
      Don’t take drug, smoke and drink additionally

      And for goodness, I’m turning 18 within 2 months and born to an Asian family…

    16. I preferably would like a personal develpment type of online business where I can earn good money and help others as well. Any ideas?

    17. Im looking to start a blog, I want something that I have total creative freedom, I know how to use XHTML. It has to be free though, I don’t mind some advertising but if it were minimal that would be great! For all you bloggers out there, what site do you use? can you provide a link so I can check it out?
