Armchair BEA: Day Four: Beyond the Blog






I'm not aspiring to be a writer, or even write for newspapers.... though if given the opportunity I sure wouldn't pass on it. I am a poet though. I have been published. Though that is not my goal. Poetry, like books, is my outlet.

Now for monetizing my blog or making money off of it... I wish!
I do have Google Ads, and use Amazon Affiliate Links, but make money... HA! I have yet to see a penny!
Again, this is not my goal so I really don't try hard at it.

I use other things like Like.net or Sponsored Tweets. Where you use social network sites to make money... usually paid via Paypal. I also love sites like Swagbucks... add up points for goodies... who doesn't like that?!
And FYI, two of those links are referral links where I get credited! Please use them if you are new to the site.

So that's all my tips... I know, not much, but that's where you come in. If you have better tips, leave a comment with it or your url. Any tips are appreciated here.

  1. I've heard about Swagbucks. I think my sister uses it.

  2. Lol, I'm with you on not taking it to hard. I've actually earned $10 since I started using the affiliate thing, but that's a lot thanks to friends thinking about clicking on my links, lol. It's definitely not a great way to get money, but it's a good start to test the monetizing out! Or I think so, haha.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
