Came up short this month

It is almost the end of the month and I am finding that I am coming up short in the money department. I think that in my zealous efforts to get ahead of my bills I may have over paid to the point of not having enough money to pay for gas in the car. I know that I am ahead on all the bills but should I short change myself in the process? I don't want to be so far in debt that I can never hope to see the end in sight. Another blog Rantings of a Strong Woman relates her past struggle with credit cards. She and I seem to stress out about the same thing - money or lack of.

I am very realistic when it comes to earning money or making money thru selling, blogging or surveys. I realize that almost all those ventures takes several weeks from the time you have earned the money to actually seeing it in your bank account. Even selling items on line via PayPal takes about 4-6 days before you can actually say it is in your account. The only way I know of to earn hard cash right away is to sell something in person. So while I wait for my earned money via the internet to show up in my account (I won't hold my breath) I'll just sell some more jewelry.

I hope you are hanging onto those diamonds. The good thing about blogging is that although you have to wait for the initial payment, if you blog consistently you can expect weekly payments.

That's what I am hoping for. I have signed up for PPP and that was almost 3 weeks ago, I haven't heard back from them yet.

You will, just be patient. While you are at it there are a few other sites you should join. I have listed them on my blog, but they include smorty, payu2blog, blogsvertise, blogitive and a couple of others I can't remember.

I have already joined blogsvertise. I just joined blogitive today. Smorty, I think the blog is too new but I'll try them this week. I have not heard of payu2blog but I'll look into that one. I did join Bloggerwave a few days ago and had trouble adding my blog to it so I did some searching on the internet and found them to be ripoff artists. So I might just let them be.

PPP is by far the best but I like to have those other ones to fall back on. BTW did you know your blog had to be three months old before it will be accepted by PPP?

Just got rejected by PPP. This blog is only 50 days old so another 40 days to go!
