Social media income: the new

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


I’ve realized a few things in the last week. First, I’ve been operating this blog for SIX years now (what what?) and I’ve been working on it full time for two years. Is that not amazing? I’m just so grateful that this has turned into the career I never knew that I wanted, and I have you to thank for it! So thank you.

I’ve been very candid about how I make income from this blog.

I won’t be buying a new yacht or a baseball team any time soon, but it puts food on the table and dog food in the dog bowls (Roxie and Yoshi are very appreciative). If you are a blogger, you know that every cent of a blog income is earned through hard work, dedication, and understanding family members. If you are a blogger, I am excited to share a new platform with you that will help you earn additional income: And here’s the good news, if you are not a blogger, but you create content for social media platforms in any way, you should still pay attention. You too can earn extra revenue!

So here’s what I mean. If you use the following platforms, even for personal use, you have a chance to share advertiser messages and make money:

  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • Foursquare
  • Google +
  • Instagram
  • Tumblr
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • Blog platforms (Blogger, WordPress)

So here’s what you need to do. Visit the following homepage at Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 4.02.23 PMYou can sign up using your Facebook account, Twitter account, or by filling out the fields with your information.

I’m excited that this opens a world of new opportunities up to me and everyone else who is curious about making income from their activities online. Of course I recommend only participating and sharing things that you are really interested in and that your audience is interested in. You are under no obligation to accept anything!

So as soon as you can, visit and sign up for an account. You have nothing to lose, and you’re definitely going to find some opportunities you love!
