Social Networking and Earning at the same time

i have thought long and hard if i should plunge into paid blogging. i've been given good points and positive feedback from good friends. and having extra income won't hurt. something extra for little indulgences.

after a lot of google searches, a few hits and misses, i finally stumbled upon SocialSpark. the site does not bank on just giving you opportunities to blog about but a medium to create a community and interact with the other bloggers in socialspark. imagine that, you get to earn and at the same time, meet new friends and contacts. the people inSocialSpark are very sociable. the same day i signed up, i got new messages and even props to my blog (props are like "points" or "pokes" or "votes". ) and it gives a great feeling that they do make an effort in visiting my blog. it shows, i have mybloglog and blog catalog to track those who visited.

anyway, enough about me, this entry is all about socialspark and how it will help my blog.

this site is one of the most credible paid blogging sites i have encountered. imagine, they have a code of ethics that you have to read to know what you can and can't do. they do not require you to indicate that you are getting paid for blogging. personally i find it quite of a hassle if you are required to shout out to the world that you are getting paid for blogging. at socialspark, you still have power over your blog at it's personality. as much as possible, they want your entries as personal as it can get.

speaking of the code of ethics, here are the things that are noteworthy:

-100% Audit-able In-Post Disclosure
-100% Transparency
-100% Real Opinions
-100% Search Engine Friendly

oh, and get this, you can also create opportunites for the bloggers in your community. it's a win-win situation in socialspark. so i suggest, if you have time in your hands, go and create and account with them. the opportunities and payout is great. there might be a gem of a blog post there worth $100. can that convince you enough?
