$30 an hour playing video games

If you’ve never heard of Glen Anderson, then here’s the skinny.

Like you, he’s a video gamer. But he’s a gamer with a difference.

Because he discovered that he could actually get paid to play games (yes, really!).

So, he eventually quit his job and started to make his living simply playing video games – or, rather, testing brand new games before they are released to the general public.

That way the game creators know their games will perform properly under fire when the general public get their hands on them.

And, for this vital service, Glen got paid up to 30 bucks an hour! Sweet!

But Glen didn’t stop there, because he saw there were tons of video game makers that needed testers – which is where you’re set to cash in BIG TIME.

Because he’s forged strong links with all these top game creators (especially the biggest payers!) and set up a private website to put these guys in touch with guys like you who are smart enough to know that when they are playing the latest games – even before they hit Main Street – they are ALSO getting paid for doing it.

Online Video Game Tester Benefits:
No Boss, No Noisy Alarm Clocks, and Definitely No Schedules!
You make your own decisions. There are no unrealistic deadlines and nobody telling you how much to work. You get to decide how much you work, part-time, full-time or OVERTIME.

I was sceptical at first on how I could earn money playing games, but I thought I have nothing to lose as they have a 60 days money back guarantee. So after 24 hours of signing up I got my first job. I just followed the instructions on the site and answered the questions that came with the game that was sent to me.

Some of the questions were: What bugs did I encounter while playing the game? What level did the game slow down or freeze? I also filled up a survey and gave my opinions on how it can be a better game. After 7 days I got my first paycheck, and after just 2 months, I was able to buy my dream setup, a 50 inch plasma TV and a Bose 5.1 surround speakers!

So check this out, right now and take the $1 dollar test drive: HERE – you’ll be glad you did!

And here’s the best bit, you get to KEEP the games. So just imagine the reaction of your gaming buddies when they’ve paid big bucks to buy the game – and you tell them, not only did you play it weeks ago, it didn’t cost you a single red cent AND you actually got paid to play it.

Is Your Work Online Your Job?

Are you an active member in an online writing community or a social blogging community?  Is it your job?  Well maybe not for some. But for me … IT’S A JOB!!  A job I might add that I would very likely not be doing were it not for the fact that I DON’T HAVE A JOB!


  • Me becoming unemployed was an unplanned event.
  • Me hiring myself was intentional.
  • Me continuing at my various home business projects each and every day was really not my game plan.


Cmoneyspinner’s Home Business Projects was meant to be used as a “bridge” or interim work until a regular 9 to 5 was lined up. That hasn’t happened. Not getting any younger. Refuse to sit home and do nothing!  “Goofing Off” or “Making Excuses” is not an option.  That would be a waste of my time; time that should be utilized for more constructive, productive and profitable WORK.


Everyday is a new day.



That being said, I am constantly on the lookout for various income opportunities and am on several mailing lists. This info arrived in my eMail.  Was going to bookmark these links for later review and/or share via Pinterest. I maintain a pinboard which is a collection of Home Business Tips and I also participate in a group board for Work at Home Moms. Problem with those two ideas is “access”.

  • If they are saved to my bookmarks , the only one who can see them is me.
  • If shared to Pinterest, those who don’t have an account with that network won’t be able to see them.


Also, bookmarking and pinning have won’t earn me any coins.  🙂


So!  Publishing this post and including the links, for my own future reference and because they might be useful to others – members of the community and also the general public – was the logical thing to do.  (NOTE:  This content was published at another site, but was deleted and republished here.)

4 Tips for Getting Your Stand Alone Blog to Stand On Its Own!

Continuing to supply advice to those who are publishing stand alone blogs. Refer back to one of my previous posts on affiliate marketing and blog monetization.


If you are an expert or have a passion about a particular topic you could probably publish a really successful blog. That’s what “they” say.


I can’t speak from my own personal or professional experience. None of my blogs have a specific niche. If you are like me (i.e. you don’t really have an expertise), then you are constantly experimenting and evolving your “free style”. But there are lots of things you can do to sort of help move your “free standing blog” along. Slowly but surely, my blogs are beginning to gain traction, getting subscribers, followers, readers who enjoy my content, and visitors coming by to check out their competition. (Just kidding about the visitors. It’s a joke!)  🙂


* * *

TIP 1: Join a blogging community with an income potential like … ? – EX: Literacy Base. Communities like LB provide great support. The members try to help each other out, sharing experiences, etc. and often ask questions that are probably the same questions you were wanting to ask! When we put our heads together, we all benefit from the interactions.


* * *

TIP 2: Invite guest bloggers to your blog (or be a guest blogger for another blog, if they invite you) – Guest Bloggers Wanted


* * *

Tip 3: Reblog at your blog.  It’s not considered plagiarism or content duplication by Google or other search engines.  It’s easy. You share the blogger’s link with (or without) perhaps a short excerpt of the post to get the reader interested in further reading and maybe or (maybe not) add your own insights or comments. You’d be surprised. Many bloggers appreciate a reblog every now and then because it directs traffic from “your blog” to “their blog” and introduces “their content” to “your audience”, i.e. people who read your blog but may have never read their blog. – Here are two examples of my reblogs.

EX 1:  MOVIE REVIEW: Big Bad Wolves | Written in Blood (Reblog)

EX 2:  If You Could Create A Monster (Reblog)


(NOTE: This is how I reblog. Others may do their reblogging differently. These posts were published on the Blogspot platform. If you have ever reblogged using the WordPress platform you will notice it’s done a little differently.)


* * *

TIP 4:  Have tried using blogging platforms thinking it would not be so hard since one blogging application is as good as the other.  Right?  Wrong!  Tried one platform.  Walked away feeling whipped.  Gave up!  Couldn’t figure how to publish on it.  So my advice is:  Find other places to publish in order to gain writing experience and to build your online presence and reputation; but look for sites that use a blogging platform you’re familiar with.  It cuts down on the learning curve, and if that site already has a fairly decent online presence (i.e. a good SEO ranking) when you publish there you can include a link to your main stand alone blog in your Author’s Bio box (if allowed). – EX: About the Author: Profile at Daily Two Cents. (It serves as a “good back link”, which is a mechanism that the search engines love.)



Hope you find these tips helpful.

Respected Affiliate Marketing Programs for Making Money Online

Many members in this community also have stand alone blogs or websites, where they publish their content.  Some are newbies or beginning bloggers / writers and are trying to establish a profitable money-making home business endeavor.  Some may have questions about how to monetize their blog or make money from their websites.


  1. Google Ad Sense
  2. Amazon
  3. eBay
  4. Zazzle
  5. AllPosters
  6. Commission Junction
  7. VigLink


I recommend all of these affiliate programs as trusted and reliable means of income generation. There is no fee or charge to sign up.


(This post is just a brief info. You will need to do further research on your own to learn more.  This is based on my experience and sometimes things change.)


Ad Sense, Amazon and eBay? Anybody who tries monetizing their sites and blogs knows these names. They’re all good. However, for my personal experience, only time I use eBay is at a writing site called Wizzley because there is a module for it.


I believe I could earn more from Zazzle, if I advertised more!  You can earn a sweet commission from sales.  Currently working on a way to display more products via my social media accounts.  I said “I believe!”  🙂


AllPosters at one time had a stand alone affiliate program and then they switched to having their program managed by Commission Junction.  Then both CJ and AP switched to VigLink. Nevertheless, a person can still earn from them.  Amazon and eBay are also under the VigLink umbrella.  The cool thing about VigLink is that you can take an ordinary merchant or vendor product link, convert it using a code with your affiliate referral tag in it, and then share it anywhere – at a website or a blog, via Twitter, etc.  If somebody clicks and a purchase is made through that link, you earn.  The not so cool thing about VigLink is the payout is $100.


If you are a newbie or beginner, try these affiliate marketing programs first. If they don’t work out for you, look for alternatives. There are all kinds of affiliate programs out there.  Believe me.  🙂  Find what works for you. Don’t get frustrated and give up! Persistence pays. 🙂

What is better: freelancer at home or employed at office?
March 10, 2017

Years ago when freelancer working at home was very unusual, many looked with a terrified glance at such people. Common questions were “how you live, when there is no steady income?”, the others could ask how to force yourself to work at home? In my understanding, such people do not work under an employment contract, they have no paid holidays, they do not need to take the sick-list when feeling ill, because there is nobody to whom they could show it, they do not need every morning to get out of the home to go to the office and even do not have co-workers. They have no boss too, only customers.

And, you know, I think this basically change everything in freelancer’s life. This is a different work habits, the other work culture. It is quite a different perception of the world, other issues weary them than working in offices and with colleagues. They have different challenges and difficulties. What are the difficulties?

For example, you work at home for days and then go to an event and it feels like you are wild in the wild forest. It seems to me that in the following days without communication with anyone they easily can lose part of the social skills, the ability to present themselves in the society, and with that also get some confidence evaporates. Women who every day go to work, apparently, have painted their nails for a whole week, have planned clothing, have the right shoes to the skirt, to the trousers, for the evening presentations, meeting in the morning, afternoon. If you spend even longer time at home, the risk of losing a larger amount of socialization skills increases even more. After a little bit of your life evaporates intellectual discussions with co-workers.

Messengers streamlined communication, so now you can write a message to the customer, and to the interviewer, and even to the doctor. You do not need to call and talk live!

So, working in the home office there is such a problem: you lose social skills,the ability to show yourself in the society, your confidence evaporates,
communication skills get weaker.

Of course, working in the office of ..to … is at least as difficult. I understand that there’s other troubles, but humanity this way have been living a long time, there are already well-established rules, problems and possible solutions.

Some people work at home very idealize, others do not realize how it is possible at all. It requires a lot of self-discipline, as there  always can come wish to do something other than work. Himself need to create the rules: when you work, when you eat, when you play with kids, clean home and so on. But when there are no rules of the contract, then it’s easy to break them. When boss is not staying behind you, it is easy to drink coffee all day long, listen music from Youtube, talk in Facebook and similar, instead of having constructive work. In such case only a self discipline can help. In other words, at this period of life, I am convinced, freelancing is not for me still, but maybe in the future… who knows…

Organization and Time Management for My Work at LiteracyBase
October 27, 2016
to-do-list-Organization and Time Management for My Work at LiteracyBase

Many of you may already know that I’m working on several work-at-home projects, just like most of you. Effective organization and time management skills are “key” if you multitask.



Slightly off point, as this post is not about multitasking, but want to mention this. Sharing links to 3 articles (below) that say multitasking is not good for your brain. Oh really??! Well who I am to argue with the experts? But I wish they would have told my old bosses that a long time ago. No wonder my brain is fried! (O.o)



Anyway … back on point.



When I worked outside the home, most of my employers usually evaluated me on this for my performance appraisals.  I was given good marks (most of the time).  Even though I work for myself and work from home, it is still necessary to employ these skills.  When I evaluate myself, sometimes it’s not too good. But it’s OK. Because I won’t fire myself! 🙂  I’ll just try to do better.  🙂



When I signed up for Literacy Base, it turns out that the system in place at this site, helps me not waste my time! Each day when I open my eMail there are notifications of all new posts, posts that I have commented on, friendship requests, responses and comments in groups, etc.



I love that!
Thanks Literacy Base!

What I did was create a label for the incoming eMails and set it to Skip Inbox and Archive, so that when I sign in to my eMail account, all I have to do is click on the messages with that specific label and VOILA! There is a complete list of Literacy Base correspondences requiring my attention. I just quickly go through the list and can be finished with my activity in about an hour. This can be done about twice a day (morning and afternoon).



Also, I set aside a certain amount of time for social media sharing, to circulate the posts of fellow bloggers here. My goal is to do this at least once a week although sometimes I don’t accomplish my aim.



What about you? Do you have any neat tips and tricks for online work that helps you perform tasks on your “To Do List” more efficiently?
