I write a blog online and I make a little money when people place ads in my sidebar for financial services or pay for a link to a business in a guest post. In order to do what I do I belong to social websites like Linkedin, twitter and Facebook. They are necessary. As a result I get contacted by a wide variety of people that earn a living online. It is as though I own a store and they want to place their product on my shelves. That is not what I expected to happen with this blog but that is how it has evolved.
This morning I was contacted by two websites that were related in a small way. They were both related to money...not big money, or insurance. These websites are focused on people that love to have a little extra cash in their pockets. One person owns a website called Dollar Stretcher. This business is in my Linkedin contacts. You will find information on everything from economical travel to buying and selling a house. One stop shopping...my idea of a very good idea!
The second was from a website called Junk Car Buyers. I know! This one made me smile. But here is the thing...it may be just the service you are needing. If you have a car you have inherited but just won't start or a car you never use, what do you do? Well, I guess you call Junk Car Buyers and they will give you some cash AND take the thing away. I love it when a charity or a buyer not only wants my stuff but actually shows up and carts it away. I don't know anyone personally that has a junk car parked in their drive or the vacant lot out back but maybe you do.
So there you have it...a day in the life of a typical retired kindergarten teacher turned into an ecommerce whatchamaycallit! I hope your day has been full of smiles.
