Do You Tweet? Add a Little More Income with Little Effort

SponsoredTweets referral badge

I wanted to share this with you since I know times are hard and well if you are like me, ever dollar counts. SO if you are already on twitter and using it for business or pleasure you can check this out. You must meet a few requirements, you have to have 200+ followers and your account must be so many days/months old. But besides that really easy peasy way to add to Christmas or Holiday money!
Sponsored Tweets does not spam your friends or followers. You approve the tweets that you want to allow. IT is super easy, it integrated into twitter, you link to your account... this is how it works it
  • Sign Up,~ super easy and it even recommends what you should charge for tweet, I also recommend going with that but check back often because it does increase.
  • You get "Direct Message" DM on your twitter account when you have tweet *you can choose to be e-mail about offer, but I like the DM option.
  • You see who offer is from, check out site, if you like, follow simple instructions. Some want you to write tweet then you submit it for approval or some actually give you the tweet just as they want it.
  • If you are happy and advertiser is happy they use your account to tweet one (to up to 3) times. They take care of sending it out when they want it to go out.
  • You are DM (Direct Messaged) (or e-mailed) again that transaction was complete.
  • They move funds into Sponsored Tweets account for you where you can log in to see you balance.
  • When you reach threshold to cash out they can move to your PayPal account.
SponsoredTweets referral badgeAs I hope I explained, it is super easy and you are not going to lose followers because you are spamming them with Porn sites, you are not spamming with one to three tweets, and you approve, so...no porn, you approve, you know your followers best, so you approve which ones you think fit you.

I Need Your Help With the SAM-e Good Mood Gig

Vote for Me
Good Mood Gig from SAM-e

I have entered the Nature Made SAM-e Complete Good Mood Gig. I ran across this contest late and debated entering when I saw some of people entered had 3000+ votes. But after reading the contest rules and seeing that this was just the first round, and that the top 20 people got to move on to round 2, I decided to give it a shot. I already knew I had an amazing group of friends that would vote and thought maybe I could even get a few to spread the word for me.

Boy was I underestimating my group of friends and their friends! (Sorry for underestimating y'all!) I have been AMAZED, honored and most of all Humbled but the response I have gotten...not just in votes but in comments, in people Retweeting on twitter, reposting on their Facebook profiles, and even e-mailing friends and offering to post my badge on their blog. I have formed my own marketing campaign to try to get enough votes to advance to the next round and have an entire strategy. I know the power of social media and networking, now lets just see if I can tap into it. So far, so good. I have even formed a Facebook group since many people were asking me to remind them daily, since you can vote once a day, and the group helps me organize that.

My heart has been warmed by the responses I have gotten, from simple "I hope you win" to more in depth "I suffer from chronic pain to and you have my support". I am flattered and even embarrassed by the kind and loving words that people have writing about me and I know that, contest or no contest, I have a wonderful group of friends!

I have this badge on the side of my blog so that it is easy to come back to vote, or join Facebook Group, or click here or click on graphic in this post.

Here are the Questions I was asked that of me in Contest

Why are you perfect for this job?


I would be perfect for this job because I walk the walk and talk the talk. Focusing on my "good mood" is imperative to my existence. I am a severe chronic pain patient, due to a failed spinal fusion resulted in pain that is exponentially worse than the original pain the surgery was supposed alleviate. Depression and anxiety are as near as my own nervous system. On a daily basis, I challenge myself to liberate my thoughts from the tyranny of self-centered thought. I have found that when I share my plight and my positive attitude that I desperately try to stay focused on, that I help others It is feeding into an energy that once you start to contribute to you it you are able to tap into it for inspiration or strength. I focus on goals of action, and goals of behavior. When I achieve those goals, the positive feedback I receive from the people in my circle of life provides my motivation for the following day. I articulate my thoughts through my online activity in the hope that they will be of service to others. I live by sharing my joy.

How do you maintain your good mood naturally?


I practice positive thinking and remind myself that I am in control of my own experiences. I have the power to Make it a Great Day and will not surrender that power to anyone. At some times, it is harder to Make it a Great Day than it is at other times. Still, there is always something one can find in the course of a day to be grateful for. Living in constant chronic pain it is very important for my attitude to be in adjustment and not to let depression and anxiety (which I call the "evil cousins" of chronic pain) set in. I also have an amazing group of friends, many online, who constantly make me smile. I STRONGLY believe in practicing random acts of kindness and doing something nice for someone else. These two things Pay back way more than they cost to give. Sometimes, just sharing a smile can brighten someones day and, amazingly, brighten your day as well.

This positive thinking and living is not something I started practicing to win a contest, IT IS the why I have to live, here are a few earlier post that kind of highlight my attitude that I wanted to share...
These are from my other blog Southern Handmade Gifts

MAKE it a Good Day

You Have to WANT IT

Ready and Willing

Thank you so much!

craftyGAgal Leaves GA!


Yes it is true... I mixed a little business with pleasure and blew this Popsicle Stand for IZEAfest 09. I had a blast and well now I am home and trying to catch up. I wanted to take a minute, drop in and let everyone know I was not missing, did return home from trip and got NEW jewelry coming your way. I have a big show tomorrow and will be listing after that so I will know what I have in stock. I hope that all my readers, customers and friends are doing well and are starting to think about the upcoming holidays. I, myself, have decided I am not waiting till last minute this tear and have already started my lists. I am hoping to get everything that I have made...which is a LOT... huge afghans, scraves, hars, jewelry golore listed within the next week or two. I am itching to make new designs. Right now I am working on 2 of the pumpkin hats that have sold. I love making them and know my customers will LOVE them too.
Here are a few pictures ..I have done several post with on my different blogs with pictures.. these pictures here are different... For this post I am only using pictures by Francisco Jose Palacio. Follow him on twitter where he is @FJPalacio. These pictures were taken at The ICEBAR Orlando.
He is an AWESOME photographer and since this is my artsier blog, lol, I decide to shine the spotlight on another artist. Thanks friend for letting me use them.
