I got paid by PayPerPost!

I finally got paid by PayPerPost yesterday. I actually signed up for the account for quite sometime cos someone told I could make money with my blog. Ha ha!

The account was laying dormant till recently I decided to grab some opportunities to earn a few bucks. Few weeks back, I made two post earlier regarding credit cards and free online coupons. Although the amount the amount of money that I’ll be paid for isn’t much, it was enough for me to start off with.

It’s certainly not easy for a beginner like me. For every post submitted, there are certain requirement you have to meet. For instance, you have to write a minimum number of words for the post. Then insert links or images that are required into the post.

For some opportunities, a custom tracking image needed to be inserted as well. It is a transparent image or link which is compulsory be copied or pasted directly in the post. Most of the opportunies states the number of days for the post to stay on the blog.

I actually encountered some problems with my submission. Make sure there’s no other links than the one required or stated in the opportunity. Else, your post might probably be rejected. Other than that, make sure you get your own Disclosure Policy as well. It is needed by PayPerPost.

At the meantime, I would probably spend the money I earned to invest in some domain name. =p

Credit cards

Hmm… I guess credit card is really a necessity nowadays. My friend applied for 3 cards from 3 different banks today, at the same spot in Jusco. Initially, she wanted to apply for HSBC card only. Until she got persuaded for another one with RHB, then another with Citibank.

Well, be it credit card or charge card, if the usage is not managed and planned well, it could trap the user into a financial crisis. Nowadays, you can see a clerk, teacher, government servant, executives, professionals, entrepreneur even a cab driver owns at least one card.

As far as I know, maybe 10 or 15 years back, Credit card is considered a symbol of status. Only those with high salary will be considered for credit card application approval. But these days, the scenario has changed. Credit card isn’t anything exclusive or a luxury symbol anymore. It has been a necessity for anyone and everyone. Even so, a charge card still maintain its status as symbol of credibility and the financial status of the user.

Getting a credit card is pretty easy nowadays. You can spot credit card agents everywhere in the shopping complex. Condition to apply for a card is quite lenient compared to the old days. If not mistaken, applicant must have an annual salary of RM18,000 or RM1,500 per month plus with a good credit record.

Anyway, here’s a UK based websites that have pretty informative articles and guides regarding Credit Cards. Other than guides available on the site, you can also compare credit cards and check out their interest free credit cards if you’re in the UK.
