Making Money Online

A number of people I have met online have been talking about making money on the internet. Some are successful while others become desperate to the point of being pessimistic. There are lot of ways to earn money from the internet but be careful of get -rich-schemes because most of the time they are scams. I make a couple of dollars here and there from some online sites and I have had my shares of ups and downs on online earning. It is not always easy but every cent does count. My online money making venture is a product of trial and error  for over a period of 6 months now. I know it's not that long but I have learned some useful tips in earning online though I cannot say I am an expert on this subject. But nevertheless I am going to share my knowledge regarding this matter.

There are different categories for online money making sites and it is good to know what they are. This way it will be easier for you to determine which category works best for you, instead of signing up for every available site out there that others promote to get referrals. Let me get this straight not all site will work for one single individual. For one it is a great earning site for another it is not.

Paid To Click Sites:

Paid to click sites are sites where you get paid by clicking on the ads available for clicking. You need to wait until it says the amount is credited to your account. Most PTCs are slow earners they pay less than 1 cent per click. However some people have made a small fortune from PTCs through maintaining an active referral. The more down line you have the more money you will earn from their earnings since you will be given a percentage of their monthly earnings. There are 2 types of referrals, one is direct referral meaning they have signed up under you using the referral link you provided. The other type of referral is rented referral where you buy a referral from the PTC site. But just a word of caution guys some referrals whether rented or direct some could be inactive and not earn you anything. Also for rented referrals you could only rent them for a specified period of time and when the time is over you either have to recycle them or buy a new set of referrals. You should stick to trusted PTC sites since most PTCs nowadays are going scam.

( Note: I do not recommend PTC sites because of the reason that they can be here today but gone tomorrow. I was working on a couple of PTC sites that were legit at the start but dropped off from the web all of a sudden.)

Paid To Post:

Paid to post sites are sites that pays you to post discussions and answer discussions. However, it depends on the rules of the site. The top PTP site is It has been around for far too long and has always paid it's members. There are other sites I have tried like Investworld but I prefer MyLot better because you earn in many ways and the rules are not too strict. If you want to know how to reach payout soon you may want to read this tip called How To Earn More With MyLot .

Autosurf Sites:

Autosurf sites pays you by opening your account  where they automatically  surf the sites for you. But again most sites are a scam. I had tested 3 autosurf sites and they were scams alright. The only one I trust is Cashgopher .  This site is owned by Mylot and was just launched on September 1. All you have to do is download the software in your pc and when you search on the search bar the software will give you a targeted search. You just have to let the ads download before clicking the x to get credited. You get more if you click on the ad they generated. There is an old site called Gomezpeers but they are quite choosy when it comes to membership but they are reliable and legitimate.

Freelance Jobs:

There are a lot of freelance jobs available in the internet especially that we are in the age of telecommuting. It's a matter of finding the legitimate sites where you can sign up for legitimate jobs. You can earn a lot from freelance jobs online compared to ptcs.ptps and autosurfs. There is a wide variety of jobs available from freelance jobs from data entry to tutorials. Some famous sites are, Elance,Guru and Odesk. Let me say this clearly these job sites are very competitive so you must write a very good resume to land a job. The best thing about freelancing is that you can work as many jobs as you can handle and earn more for a few hours of work but the downside is that there is no security of tenure and of course this is a short term job, although some employers hire some freelancers on a long term basis, but this does not happen all the time. I find the pay for freelance jobs on the sites I mentioned better than sites like microworkers where it pays you to do almost the same job but for just a few pennies only. One thing more these sites I mentioned works best not only for freelancers but for those who wants to outsource their business as well.  So no hassle in campaigning for a job vacancy because there are a lot of applicants to choose from.
Freelance Jobs  

Paid To Write:

If writing is your passion then you can earn money from blogging, or writing for review sites or plain writing sites like Squidoo. I find Squidoo quite unique it's like a mini blog where you can earn a lifetime royalty for articles you write. Of course you have to promote your articles so you can get enough readers and visitors to increase your earnings. As of today Squidoo has updated their site and it's much more fun with more ways to earn. Another good paid to write site is Triond and eHow. But eHow accepts only writers from north America. Well the last time I tried eHow did approve me to become a member but I  could not earn from my articles because of my geographical location. Other sites are Helium and Bukisa. The basics in earning from these paid to write sites is knowing SEO (search engine optimization) or promoting them through social networking sites and forums. A lot of writers promote their articles on sites like Digg and Stumbleupon to get people to read their articles and earn from it.

Paid To Review Sites:

Basically you review a certain product or service and if the publisher thinks it could be sold to advertisers they buy your reviews. Popular sites are ReviewMe, Review Stream, and Shvoong. Paid to blog sites are actually part of paid to review sites because  a blogger is paid to place a review about a certain product on their blog. Pay Per Post is a good example of a paid to blog site.

Paid To Chat Site:

There is a new site called Birejji, this is a very new site which was launched in April of this year. One gets paid basically by chatting and referring people to the site. There are villages (or chat rooms) available, then you have to choose one single chat room only. To earn here you can only chat in the chat room you joined in and in the main chat room. If you participate in the other villages you can but will not receive credit. Payout is every Friday of the week. This is a slow earning site but is quite interactive and fun and for those who are looking for referrals this is a great site to meet future refs. I am going to observe this site and by the way I am waiting for my first payout from this site. So I am quite excited to see if they do pay.

So, this will be pretty much it for now on  Making  Money Online . I will soon be adding up information regarding new sites or updates from current sites I have been earning from and have mentioned here. But before I forget, to get started with earning online you have to have an account with Paypal, AlertPay or Liberty Reserve. But the fastest and easiest way to transact is through Paypal. Since it is internationally recognized and works with many foreign banks. So, if you still do not have a paypal account sign up for one or click the banner below.

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly. 
 Until the next post everyone, I hope you find this piece informative. If you have questions kindly post your comments below and I will get back to you asap.  Happy online earning guys!

GT: Salt Please!

I am not asking for table salt hahaha there's this new movie I would watch with boyfriend called Salt. I know he would like it since it's not a chick flick that drives most men nutts just watching ( they just can't stand it lol). I have not watched the movie yet but will be soon with boyfriend. I heard this is a good movie and a lot of people say so. Well, knowing Ms. Jolie-Pitt I know the movie would be just great! What's yours?

TCP: My Big Fat Greek Wedding

This might be an old movie way back in the early 2000 but since TCP's theme for today is something Greek hahaha this was the first thing that crossed my mind! I just love this hilarious movie. Just think what it's like to marry someone with a different background as yours and when weddings happen families on both sides usually meddles! Every woman wants her day to be special just like Toula but when family members are involved hahaha it could be messy. But well the wedding went through and everyone was happy at the end. It's one of my feel good movie picks. What's yours?

Trusted Online Sellers

I like to shop online and I shop like crazy sometimes, this is one vice I am very guilty of lol.  I have transacted with different sellers and today I am giving tribute to these outstanding online sellers who deserves recognition for excellent customer service. Not just excellent customer service but honesty as well. Thank you guys for the pleasant online shopping experience.

Multiply is one of the sites I shop and here are my top multiply sellers:

Shoe Luxury:

I have 2 beautiful pairs of gladiator type sandals  from Jayree Mitz Chua. I love the sandals for it's hip style and quality. Jay is such a nice person to transact with. I was confined at the hospital when she informed me that my pre-ordered footwear has already arrived and it took me a couple of days to settle the payment but she was so understanding and patiently waited for me to make the payment. When I sent her an sms telling her that the sandals did not fit me she gladly told me she could change the size if I can still wait or I can choose from any of their on hand items. It was not Jay's fault that the sandals did not fit after all the sizing chart was placed on her site, I had the correct foot bed size but since it was a gladiator type and my feet got bigger because I gained some weight I could not zip it up.Here is 5 shoes up for Shoe Luxury for a great service!

HD Makeup:

Ms. Christephanie Chua communicates well with her clients and she responds immediately to inquiries. My experience with her was very smooth and the items are authentic. I bought NYX round lipstick from her and she gave me a correct description of the product. I will transact with her again as the whole experience was pleasant. 5 lippies for your Steph!

Organic Skin Care:

I love the Coastal Scents 88 palette I bought from Alona Ocampo of Organic Skin Care. Let's get real, there are a lot of bogus sellers on the internet, especially those that sells makeup. When I was a newbie to online shopping I almost got scammed by someone who advertised that she sells authentic MAC products when in fact all she had were replicas. It wouldn't bother me if she at least indicated that she was selling replicas but to post it as authentic is different. I am glad Alona is not one of them and she will give you, your money's worth.  5 blushes for you Alona!

Woof If Dogs Could Talk:

I love buying stuff for my fur babies and I bought dog training pads from Nicola.I admire the way she communicated with me and how she answered all my inquiries about the product.  I definitely will transact with her again! Here are 5 paw prints for you Nicola!

Ebay is one of the biggest online shopping site and well in my experience almost all of them are honest sellers except from a few rotten apples who got mixed in with the good ones and left a stench on other good ebay sellers. Here are my fave ebay sellers:


I have bought great bargain goods from Yvonne Marie Leyson and she always respond to text inquiries and emails. She is also a patient seller and you also get the items as described in her ebay ad page. I love the bargain finds I bought from her. Way to go Yvonne!


Lanie del Rosario of Genswifey store in ebay sells clothes and bags. I transacted with her just once but she has left me with a very good impression that makes me want to transact with her again. I bought this violet smocking spaghetti dress. She said the bust line is 36 but when the item arrived it would not fit me. I contacted Lanie and told her what happened she said she was sorry and would gladly replace the item and she let me chose clothes from her ebay shop. What made the transaction unforgettable was that not only did she not ask me not to send her shipping fee for the item she was sending me but she sent me the new item before I was able to return the item I was going to replace! She also sent me a jumpsuit for free just because she made a mistake in providing details which was no big deal since she allowed me to exchange it for another dress.I appreciate her a lot and the good customer service she provided!

Anne's Exclusive:

Brianne Xander Dionela's ebay shop is full of great bargain items. I bought this beautiful venus cut dress and a nice sexy sleeveless top from her that I really like. She was always pleasant to transact with and was prompt in sending invoices as well as the items. Thanks Anne for the hassle free transaction.

Tina Tindera:

If you like accessories Tina Tindera shop is the place for you. The owner Christina Chua is a seller you can rely on. I have transacted with her a number of times and she always deliver the items on time and not just that she informs you if the items are on its way to you. I love the vintage pocket/necklace watch I bought from her and other beautiful accessories.

So far this is my first tribute to trustworthy online sellers and I will post some time soon the next tribute to other worthy online sellers. By the way to check for online scammers you can check on the Officially Banned page on multiply. At least you would be aware who to stay away from. Till then ladies....

Brush It Up!

The right makeup brushes can help you get the most out of your makeup.

As someone who loves and breathes makeup 24/7 I can say I have the knowledge of what is good and what is not. Sometimes we would like to buy those cheap makeup tools in order to save those dineros but what we are doing really is waste money and waste the products that we are using. The right makeup brushes can help you get the most out of your makeup. It is important that we buy the right kind and quality brushes if we want to save and also to achieve the kind of look we want.



Sonya Kashuk and Beauty Blender are now the latest craze in sponges.  They are non latex and is made of high quality materials that can withstand daily washings. The sponges are rounded and will glide over the contour of your face, allowing you to buff your makeup and create a flawless  finish. 


Avoid basic latex makeup wedges. they easily fall apart and waste most of the product. They soak up too much foundation and their shape makes it harder to work and create a smooth finish


Blush Brush:


Choose any full round blush brush the round bristles makes applying blush a breeze and this gives you a smooth finish. Use angled blush brush for contouring and getting on the hollow of your cheeks.


No to any flat blush brush that renders flat lines that extends from the cheek to the temple. This is an outdated look. This kind of brush does not distribute the product evenly and concentrates it in one area.  This is definitely a no no.

Eyeshadow Brush:


The best eyeshadow brush is one that has a wide soft bristles that can pick up the right amount of product. The bristles do not fall off easily because if it does it will not give you a good finish. There are different kinds of eyeshadow brushes designed for different purpose. The best one I have tried is MAC and that is a bit pricey so I recommend Sonya Kashuk brushes for beauty in a budget but with good quality.


This free eyeshadow applicator that comes free with your compact works for smudging your eyeshadow along the lash line but this would not be good in applying eyeshadow more than one color as this would  mud the hues.

Highlighter Brush:

Sometimes called highlighter brush, bronzer or stippling brush. The unique cut of the bristles allows for the supper light application of finishing foundation, blush or bronzer.

TCP: Book Based Movie

For this  Tuesday's Couch Potato it is all about movies based on a book and here are my favorite picks. Hope you like them as well.


The Chronicles of Narnia is a book written by C.S. Lewis between 1849 to 1954, it is a seven part fantasy novel for children. So far there are only 2 novels that has been made into a movie and that is The Witch, The Lion and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. This is a movie worth watching and I personally recommend for children to watch. It gives a lot of moral lessons that are very good to impart to children. Moreover The Chronicles of Narnia series has Christian parallels as follows:

The Magician's Nephew tells the Creation and how evil entered Narnia.
The Lion etc the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
Prince Caspian restoration of the true religion after corruption.
The Horse and His Boy the calling and conversion of a heathen.
The Voyage of the "Dawn Treader" the spiritual life (especially in Reepicheep).
The Silver Chair the continuing war with the powers of darkness
The Last Battle the coming of the Antichrist (the Ape), the end of the world and the Last Judgement.


The Notebook was written by Nicholas Sparks author of the novel turned movie hit "A Walk To Remember".  The story tells about 2 young lovers who were separated for a very long time because of the woman's parents who prefer she married someone from their own social circle. Noah, was a poor guy who loved Allie very much but Allie's parents were against it and separated them. Years later they found each other and still had strong feelings for each other decided to get married against all odds. The movie moves on to the part where Old Allie had Alzheimer's disease and Noah stood beside her even when she does not recognize him. He stayed with her in the nursing home and read to her from the notebook that told of their love story every single day without fail, until they both passed away together on the same night.  The movie will pull at your heart strings and I definitely would suggest that you get ready with a box of Kleenex before you watch this. 

Confessions Of A Shopaholic:

This movie was based on a novel of the same title by Sophie Kinsella. Starring Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy. This a story every woman can definitely relate to! Well the joys of shopping an every woman's delight and dismay! Dismay when you have to deal with credit card debt when you overspend. This is an ultimate chick flick that I love and recommend.

The Devil Wears Prada:

Starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. This movie was a big hit. It tells about a young woman who worked for a boss from hell magazine editor who has ridiculous demands. The young woman has to sacrifice a whole lot just to keep her job. It's also about fitting in at work something we all can relate to. This is very inspiring for me as I try to do the best I can in my job no matter who the boss is.  5 popcorn buckets for this movie!

All About Me Mondays: Memoir of My High School Teacher

I spent more than half my life in school ... as a student.
And another 10 years as a classroom teacher.

It only seems fitting that I make some effort to celebrate
Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3 - 7).

What better way to celebrate than assigning some homework?

Take a little stroll down memory lane ...
all the way back to the hollowed halls ...
of your school years - the days of raising your hand, 
taking tests, and making the grade ;)

Tell us about the teacher(s) who made a difference in your life.

Make it a list or a story - your choice!


I met Mr. B in senior year in high school he was my social studies teacher. Mr. B was kind of strict at  first and do not tolerate b.s in his class. I never thought I would like being in his class. Mr. B was my teacher for a year but the friendship lasted until now. Mr. B taught me and my class to stand up for our rights. To just not accept the wrong things being done by some officials  but to stand up against it. Mr. B helped me find my voice and taught me how to stand up and fight for my rights. He also blessed me with his friendship all through these years.  Mr. B encouraged my whole class to aim for the sky, this has greatly encouraged me ad it does pay to be in the company of good people because you get influenced by them in a good way. It's been 12 years since I graduated from high school but I will never forget Mr. B and how a boring social studies class turned out to be very interesting. I wish there are more teachers like Mr. B.

Curing Zits The Natural Way

Zits can appear every now and then and it's most annoying when it pops up on a big day! Geez, it certainly drives me nuts when it happens. Over the years I have used different OTC (over the counter) zit preparation like benzoyl peroxide to get rid of the zits and occasional bad breakouts.  It did help in getting rid of those unsightly blemishes and so I stick with it for a long time. But as health advocates started to campaign for natural products to increase awareness among the general population, I decided to try using natural products to cure zits.I found it very effective in getting rid of the blemishes and it's very pocket friendly as well ;-) Here's what I used:

Bitter Gourd/ Ampalaya (Momordica charantia):

Bitter Gourd is now gaining popularity not just as a vegetable but for its medicinal properties. Aside from lowering down blood sugar in diabetic people, this vegetable has an antimicrobial property too. I have personally experimented with this when I had a bad breakout. I took one medium sized bitter gourd and grated it, took the grated fleshy part and squeezed out the juice. Then I placed the bitter gourd extract inside a clean small bottle and stored it inside the refrigerator. I would thinly apply the extract all over my face and leave it on the entire night and after 2 days the zits were clearing out. By the third day the zits were totally gone. I know for some this might seem like a hassle but it's worth trying especially if you are low on your budget. Plus one of the big bonus I get by going natural is that there are no toxins in my skin which are produced by the chemicals used in commercially prepared pimple products. Thereby lessening the likelihood of premature aging.

Guava / Bayabas (Psidium Guajava):

Guava is most notable not just for its delicious fruit but for its medicinal properties. A proven antimicrobial used in wound care, guava leaves are also used for curing pimples and zits by taking a handful of young guava leaves and boiling it in 2-3 cups of water. Wash your face with  warm water from the boiled guava leaves. apply your cleanser and get 2-3 pieces of the boiled guava leaves and use it as a facial scrub. Scrub it gently all over your face and wash it with the remaining water from the boiled leaves. This also helps in getting rid of the blemishes and prevents breakouts. It makes the skin  look visibly clear and pimple free.

Malunggay (Moringa oelifera):

Moringa or malunggay is considered as a poor man's vegetable but today it is gaining popularity for it's medicinal use. Moringa grows widely in southeast Asia especially in the Philippines where it grows abundantly all over the country. This miracle vegetable is loaded with vitamins and minerals and helps cure several ailments including skin conditions.  Last year, I had  developed cellulitis on my index finger due to an allergic reaction to detergents. It was such a bad case, my finger looked like a sausage and it was severely painful. At the same time I had a bad pimple breakout. A good friend of mine who is a health enthusiast gave me pure moringa capsules which I took twice a day. After taking two tablets on the first day the swelling disappeared, on the second day my finger was near normal and my blemishes were gone. On the third day my finger looked very normal and on the fourth day it was completely healed and I was pimple free too. I experimented taking the moringa capsules when I had a bad breakout of pimples and the results were amazing! After a day the pimples was gone! Ever since that day I would regularly take moringa capsules like a daily supplement. I never experience having zits and cellulitis ever again. The capsules are sold very cheap, so it's affordable and very effective. For those who wants to have great looking skin I suggest you take moringa capsules every day.
Benefits of Going Natural:
1. Cheap and readily available. You don't need to break your bank to buy that anti acne cream. No need to wait until the product arrives when it's sold out because it's abundant everywhere.

2. Won't cause premature aging. Most of these facial creams and anti- acne creams that are commercially prepared are harmful to our skin. The chemicals produces toxins that can cause premature skin aging and even skin allergies. When you go natural it is guaranteed fresh with no preservatives or harmful chemicals that can damage your skin.

3. No side effects. Natural remedies do not cause side effects when used properly and in appropriate amounts compared to commercially prepared products. There are no synthetic chemicals that are used so there is no worry of overdose and side effects.

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: 50 First Dates

The movie that reminds me of summer fun and finding love is none other than 50 First Dates, Starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The movie soundtrack is so cool and the scenes from the movie is mostly around the beach which usually symbolizes summer.

Imagine having to win over the girl of your dreams... every friggin' day.

About The Film:

Henry Roth (Adam Sandler), a marine-life veterinarian living in Hawaii, meets Lucy Whitmore (Drew Barrymore), an art teacher, in a cafe one morning. They eventually develop a relationship, but it soon emerges that Lucy suffers from anterograde amnesia due to a car accident she was in a year earlier. Her condition has left her with no memory of anything between the day of the accident and the present, because she is incapable of converting short-term memories into long-term memories. At the beginning of each day, she loses all memory of the past day. She innocently believes every day to be October 13, 2002. Her father and brother attempt to reenact the activities of October 13th, her father's birthday, every day, to prevent her from suffering from learning about the accident. Because of Lucy's condition, Henry is forced to find new and imaginative ways of winning Lucy over every day, to the disapproval of her father and brother. They order him to stop meeting her at the cafe, fearing that he will take advantage of her innocent state. Henry, in keeping with his promise, contrives to meet her each day as she is on the road driving home from the cafe. Her father and brother soon find out that he is still meeting her, because every time Lucy "meets" Henry she sings Wouldn't It Be Nice while she paints the garage. They agree to allow Henry to see Lucy because they appreciate his determination and the fact that he makes her happy, and the next morning Henry shows up at their house with a video explaining the accident and everything that has happened since. One day, Lucy wakes up to find Henry in her bed after spending the night together, doesn't recognize him, and attacks him. Henry leaves the room, and Lucy then overhears her doctor and Henry talking about how he will never achieve his dream to explore the Arctic and how Henry hopes and believes Lucy will remember him from day to day. Lucy then breaks up with Henry, feeling that she is keeping him from living his life fully, and burns all her journal entries about him so her memory of him will be gone for good. Henry is unable to move on with his life, but he decides to go on the Arctic expedition anyway. Lucy's father gives him a going away present, a Beach Boys CD, which Henry takes as a sign that Lucy has remembered him. He races back to the ward for people who have memory problems, where Lucy decided to live because she no longer wanted to be a burden on her family. Lucy is teaching an art class to the other inhabitants when Henry bursts into the room. He asks if she remembers him, and she doesn't, but oddly she asks him to come into her studio. Much to Henry's surprise, her studio is filled with pictures of Henry in hundreds of different styles. She tells Henry that she doesn't know why she's painted them, but she dreams about him every night. Henry tells her about their past relationship, and they kiss to seal it. At the end of the movie, there is a flash forward and Lucy wakes up in a strange bed with a video tape on the night stand next to her, reading "Good Morning Lucy" on the table. She watches it, and she cries as she relives her accident while the tape is explaining everything that has happened. Then it shows Henry and Lucy's wedding. She then looks out the window, and is shocked to find out that she's in the Arctic. She comes out of the bedroom to find her father, Henry, and her daughter sailing on Henry's ship. (courtesy of

All About Me Mondays: The Green Eyed Monster In Me

Jealousy is not a good feeling at all, in fact it's heavy and it seems to pull all the dark clouds in on me, but because I am human and I am no saint I have fallen into the traps of jealousy. Not proud of it but I'm honest about my feelings. Let's see...the last time I was really jealous was like 10 years ago, it was a part of a sibling rivalry. Again sibling rivalry is very common to most families among brothers and sisters. I was no different with the rest.

I was used to being treated as an only child, being raised by my grandparents and aunts I was the only child in the house although I had a brother but he lived with my parents.So, I had no competition with my grandparent's love and attention. Well, it used to be until my sister was born. My grandma soon favored her over me and I resented later on having a sister. I was no longer the apple of my grandma's eye it was now my sister and I fought hard to be my grandma's favorite. I tried to excel in class or show more affection but my grandma was sold out to my sister and I was dethroned.

I remember resenting my grandma that I soon withdrew from her. I refused to share anything with my sister, especially that she became a brat. I fought with grandma whenever she would give my toys and my clothes to my sister. I know I have outgrown my clothes and my toys but because I felt so jealous I would refuse to give them away. This resulted in heated arguments with my grandmother and me shutting down. I stayed away from my grandmother even when we lived under the same roof. I kept myself busy doing whatever came to mind, I no longer hang out with my grandmother and kept to myself.

However, I have out grown the sibling rivalry, now it doesn't matter to me whoever my grandma favors. I have learned to be content with what I have and take pride with what I have achieved. I no longer compare myself with my sister, I guess all was just a phase. I have learned to be happy with who I have become and be contented with the love shown to me by both grandparents and the rest of the family. 

So, that was the green eyed monster within me and I'm glad he has been kicked out! :) What about you what makes you jealous? when was the last time you were jealous? Care to share? Join All about me Mondays below.
