Slice The Pie, Quick Overview

I am always on the lookout for extra ways to make cash. Slice The Pie is pretty interesting. You listen to music, which is bands for the most part not famous or anything and write a review. Now I am earning small amounts of change, but you can listen to 90 seconds of audio and then submit the review.

My best review earned me 11 cents, while my worst was 5 cents. I know you are probably thinking, not worth the time. These types of opportunities shouldn't be taken as a full time job... This is a way to earn extra cash!

 This is fun if you like music. The higher your ranking means the more you get for each review. I tend on keeping up with this site. You need $10.00 dollars before you can get payout. So far I earned $.85 cents for my first time using the service, so I see promise. It might take some time but I am just looking for side money.

My Thoughts On Using Your Forum Signature To Get Traffic

Can I get traffic by putting a link to my website in my signature?

Yes, you can. But you need to post to the forum with good post not crap post like "wow thanks for the tip" There is nothing wrong with that sometimes, but its better to add to the post, ask a question, offer advice.

You should try and make a name for yourself on a forum, if you are offering good advice than chances are someone will click on your link to see what you do on your blog or website.

Do not underestimate the power of this free way to gain traffic.

Can I post a link to my website in the post I make?

No! That usually is marked as a spam post. Some websites allow links to other websites if it is useful to the post itself. But normally this is a no-no and classified as self promotion. This is what the signature is for, put the website there. That way every post you make will show your signature and you won't be breaking rules.

You can use google analytics for free to track where your traffic is comin…

55 Swagbucks Away From A $5 Amazon Gift Card

I'll be honest, I get discouraged easily when it feels like it is taking long to get a reward, however I did slack off for a week there and never bothered coming to the website.

Originally I wanted to get a $5.00 Paypal card, but it cost 700 SB (Swag Bucks) Seeing that an Amazon card is much less, I think I'll be doing that. I do have some things I want to order from the website so when I earn enough points I can get my amazon card to go towards those purchases.

May as well save money somehow right? And it is easy. Everyday I easily can get swag bucks by doing the daily poll, sometimes a survey and the search bar. Playing games and watching videos is another way to earn with Swag Bucks.

Blogging For Fun VS Blogging For Money

The first blog I made was made for the purpose of trying to make money, and some fun but not much. I focused to hard on the money aspect that I lost the joy of making a blog. Sad but true... Later down the road I made the decision to use adsense and some affiliate links with no expection of making any money from this. I wanted to focus on content and traffic.

Easier said then done, there is a lot of work involved in writing your own blog post and generating traffic. This is a big reason why you should make sure to blog about stuff you like and know about. My main blog is about World of Warcraft its a blog about making gold in the game. I have large traffic burst and then the traffic will die down. This is because of lack of driving traffic to the blog.

Now if you are doing your blog strictly as fun and don't give a hoot about money opportunities then chances are you won't care about driving traffic much either. I guess it depends though.

I think some of the pros for blogging f…
