Posting With Hootsuite

Hoot suite makes it easy to post to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogger, and Tumbler accounts all from one place, It have everything you need to make good clean blog posts by adding images, links, and more, you can even use raw html code to add even more to it.
I would suggest that you have the urls of any images you want to add because sadly this editor doesn't offer the option to upload an image which for everything else it does I can live with the lack of images mostly. And I can always edit it later on Blogger to add and tweaks.

It's also a great tool for social networking too, you can use it to market your affiliate offers or a product of your own creation.

Some examples of the basic stuff Hoot Suite you can do.
  • Simple
  • Bullited 
  • List
  1. Simple
  2. Numbered
  3. List
Bold Italics Score
Even Hightlighting
Everything is simple and easy to use, just like the Blogger interface.

Play Old Games On Your PC

I know this is old news but I was surprised at how many people don't know about emulators and roms that allow you to play just about all of your old favorite Nes, Snes, Saga, Game Boy, and PlayStation games on your computer and the good part is that your allowed to download any game that you already own.

All of these are free and there are many sites on the Internet that try to make you jump through hoops and even install third party software to allow you to down the games, please don't fall for such sites use the ones from the links below to download your emulators and roms (games).

I only use about three sites and have never had any issues with them, I made another post about this sometime back and even added some videos but this one is just a refresher/reminder so I'm not going to waste your time with anymore useless stuff.

Where to get your emulators...
  1. Emulator-Zone | this is hands down the best place to find the best emulators so check it out.

Where to get your games (roms)....
  1. Dope Roms | Not a bad site, has a few too many screens to go through just to download the game but the downloads are clean and in the correct format, unlike some sites that have you download a exe file.
There are plenty of other sites out there but these two should be just find for just about everyone, just remember that when you go to download your rom just open it in a new tab which should make thing a little easier.

Do any of the thousands of ways to make money online really work? Well that is a good question and one that I have been searching for an answer too for a very long time, but I have yet to find a way to make enough money to totally replace the income I had from my job where I was making over $120K per year plus some on the side for little projects.

However now that I've taken a little time off from the rat race I find myself wanting to find new and old ways that I can use to make money online and even off-line. I've had some luck with eBay and have listed a few books on Amazon but at the time of this posting nothing has sold yet... I'm wanting to get into Amazon FBA but I would like to have some success at selling on my own before jumping in with both feet.

Also I have made some money from Clickbank and other affiliate networks but not enough to brag about, either I promote the wrong things or I'm going about it in the wrong way. So now here I am looking for something that works. I've tried survey sites like Swagbucks and such but it takes soo long for me to earn enough money to be able to cash out or even have enough to be worth cashing out.

I can see the value in it if you have all day to spend on these sites but I don't have that kind of time. My time would be better spent finding ways to make money. I also toss an affiliate offer into my blog posts most of the time if it fits into what I'm writing about, most of the affiliate I've tried myself and some I have on my list of things to try.

I would hate to promote something that I would have no interest in using or is a total scam, anyway back to my ramblings. I do think that if done correctly that you could earn a great deal using affiliate networks, writing your own eBooks which is something I am working on, creating apps for iPhones and Android which is something I am thinking about I am in the jotting down ideas phase.

Also some other good ways to make money is online auctions like eBay but not just eBay also Facebook is good I've made a few bucks from selling stuff through Facebook and don't forget the apps like Letgo, Craig's List is also a good place to make some money but be careful when dealing with people you don't know, like never go to buy something with more money than you agreed on.

I also like going to flea markets and thrift shops to find good deals and items that are worth more then they are being sold for. Like retro games if they work and I can get them cheap without cutting into any chance for a profit to be made then I will happily buy them, and I never pay for what they are selling for online that would be stupid unless I had a private buyer that deals with me and doesn't worry about online prices.

As much as I write about random stuff I've been thinking about writing a few dozen articles and then submit them to some article directories so that I can get paid the more people that use my articles. Same thing with some photos, I have a Sony a58 camera that takes good pictures but I am waiting on a lens adaptor so that I can use a lens that I got from eBay that while it said it worked with my camera it sadly does not, not without an adaptor anyway.

I've been researching niche sites but that can be a lot of work to build each site, get domain names for each one and find the right affiliates for them. Then the fun comes in where you link them all together and list them in the search engines along with all the SEO work that I would have to do plus building the sites and uploading them, getting traffic, capturing email addresses for private marketing use, and making sure to do follow up emails and offer them deals on related products would make this like a job to get everything running on its own.

However once the niche sites were up and running and traffic flowing into them with just ten sites you could make an easy $100 a day if each site could bring in $10. Now that's not going to happen but it would be nice, some sites may bring in more than others but any extra money is better than no extra money.

I will update this post from time to time with anything that works for me, right now scrap iron prices are down so it's not really worth me hauling any off, but while prices are down I could go around with about $500 and buy some scrap for a really low rate from people whom just want to get rid of it I would then keep it stocked up and put away so that I can sell it all when the prices come back up.
