I've added a new service to my site-- okay, it's advertising, but it's a service if you find something you like, yes? Anyway, I met the founders of YouData at the Mom2.0Summit in February. YouData is an advertising network on the web, but in this particular network, you, the viewer, gets paid for clicking on the ads. You set up a MeFile which provides the advertisers with some information about your age, interests, where you live (but nothing connected to your name) and asks you what Paypal account you want your earnings deposited in. (You can also donate your earnings to charity, if you prefer.) Then they show you ads in your browser based on what you say you like. And every time you view one, you earn $.10 to $.25. Okay, you're not going to get rich, but it's better than nothing, right? And I have found some websites through the ads that I really like that I had never seen before and I earned about $5 in two weeks. (Of course, I won't link you to them here because I don't want to deny you your earnings!)
So, on the right side of my blog (where you see the top of the woman's head on the right) is a place to set up your MeFile and start earning money.
And if you have a business, you might be interested in advertising on their network. The ads are targeted to only the demographics you specify and you can budget how much you want to spend to keep the costs under control.
An interesting concept in advertising- now I'm going to try to get television advertisers to pay me!
