I’ve met and emailed with so many up and coming bloggers in the past 3 years that we’ve been running The Frugal Find. One of the main questions we’re asked is how to make this more than a hobby or at the very minimum how can I earn some “shoe or purse money.” Mr. Frugal wrote a great 4 part series about starting a blog, I’ve included the links below. I wanted to mention Social Spark again because I just checked in and saw that in the past week since we posted about this, 8 of you have earned up to $250 just for writing articles on your blogs. Congrats!!
Here are the details again…
Social Spark pairs you with brands that have offers your readers may be interested in, you can decide to take the offer or decline. I’ve declined quite a few, but I’ve also accepted several as well. Social Spark has given me the opportunity to work with brands such as Walgreens, Uncrustables, Coca-Cola, LegoLand, Dollar General, and more! Typically the company has a special running or a new coupon or giveaway that they want help promoting. That’s where we as bloggers step in to help! Now the great part is that they work with blogs in a variety of niches, not just frugal blogging. So don’t let that deter you.
