Hello, this is not one of my usual posts, but the hilariousness of the following comment was too much! And I do mean too much!
One of my Blogger blogs was mostly faith based. I've tried to incorporate that here. I found it difficult to separate my faith from my general ramblings. I am the kind of person that doesn't set aside time for God. I include Him in everything I do. I talk with Him all day long, rather than put a time limit on prayer or scripture.
I heard of faithful business owners that are known and loved because you can see their faith in everything they do in their business. What about putting those things into practice for your blog? Might your blog be or become your business?
Do You Have "Faith" in Your Blog?

Social media has become more and more something that is used daily for many reasons. I will admit, it was not in my plans to use these services and now that I've seen what they can do, I really don't mind them at all. Ido like to use services to stream line my activity. Getting my posts on facebook and twitter has been my main focus for using social media.
Question Moms is an interesting and refreshing change to the usual survey
and small home type business marketing.
I joined Question Moms sometime back and the pace comes and goes. The foundational efforts to help give feedback to the businesses looking to market their products is the basis for some of the surveys.
Question Moms also have an opportunity to review products.
I have listened in on a variety of these type of webinars. Even though I'm not a large site I can get info that improves my blog. Join in if you would like.

I want to tell you all about a great Blogger opportunity. I connected with Shasta on Linked In earlier this week and asked her what her business did. Blog Friendly PR sounded enticing. She responded promptly and I went to check it out. I came across a link for Pitch List Bloggers, naturally I had to check it out. It is a very new site, 129 members.
I'm here to tell you, they have got it together! They are setting up opportunities to work with companies and they are some very nice businesses. Right now there is a list going to be a review of Total Gym for: Total Gym "Total Mom" Challenge 2011

Have you thought about making money on Twitter? I've seen some of the larger blogs using My Likes as a blog resource to monetize their Twitter accounts.
One thing that is very new to My Likes is the iPhone and Android App. I can pull up my My Likes account and skim the offered tweets while on the go. It is a very simple system to use, you set the time of day to start the posting, it only posts up to 5 times and stops. It is intuitive in that is spaces the tweets so you don't bombard your followers with too many tweets.
I signed up for my account sometime back and never really used it much till January. My tweets are getting more exposure and I have increased my payouts. Jan and Feb were not very big months at $2.64 and $3.71. March has been a different story, I've been getting payouts weekly. My first weeks payout were $2.36 and $2.45.
I don't think I'll get rich or anything, but monetizing my blog could go into the blog fund kitty!
This is an example of a My Likes tweet:
