After almost two months writing paid posts, I am beginning to feel bored. I have covered almost every topics from loans to mail order brides to dentists to sex enhancing herbal supplements. There is only so much you can write before you ran out of personal stories to share.
Most days, I just scroll through the opportunities on Blogitive, PayPerPost and now LoudLaunch and I really do not know what I can write that has not been written. But it is nice when the figures add up at the end of the month. So, it takes a lot of grit to continue banging away on the keyboard with passion when you have really ran out of interesting thoughts to share.
I seriously cannot imagine what the following months will be like when I have talked about root canal, orgasms, properties, insurances and online dating. I suppose these trend of paid posts only arrived on our shores like three or four months ago so no one can really tell us what to do when we are tired of writing.
No writing = no money. So I suppose that is motivation enough, right?

hehehee… so fast bored oredi meh??
nolah i think you try too hard to make those reviews blend into your blog.
I have 2 almost abandon blogs where I bantai away. No need to think of writing my normal style. Write like zombie only.
If something come along that I think can fit into my Main Blog, then oni I take. That’s why nowadays, very little reviews at AhPek.com.

I think PPP are running out of interesting opportunities too. Most of the time its the same old stuff. Could be the holiday season.

RyeUrn – Yalor, the other ads programme are equally boring oso.
pablopabla – Bantai away also must need words. Got lah, my two hidden blogs, I can bantai 10 posts in one sitting. Hehehe.
AhPek – But I like the challenge wor. However, nowadays with PPP disclosure policy, easier cos I can go straight to the point.

Actually, I think I know what you mean. Cos when I saw too many of those posts on my blog, I also bei tahan. So I cut down and now, I created another blog and then that one can anyhow hantam cos I don’t invite my regular readers to read.
Btw, I’ve been a lurker on your blogs but a bit shy to comment until now. Heehee.

Me too, don’t have much to write already. But still need the money, so got to take the opportunity anyway.
Samm(January 3, 2007 - 12:45 pm)
It’s indeed boring, but the money coming into Paypal keeps it exciting anyhow. So…. keep going at it till i run outta juice. Or maybe until the rest of my blogs can take some brunt of my paid posts. Mebbe i shud just go buy a few more domains, lol.
David(January 3, 2007 - 8:44 pm)
Agree with Sesame.
Create a few “fake” or spammy sites. Just play the Adsense game like what most others doing.
1) Create a few domains and interlink it to create a blog farm.
2) Get a software like Power RSS to do autoposting while you away sun bathing in the beach. Auto content creation …
3) Insert Adsense code and make money !
It is just a number game …

David – Yeah, that’s a good idea. I am doing that, somewhere.
samm – Now, I beh song that geng there since dia orang buat so secretive. You know what I mean???? Itu hijau mia bilik? So, I am all out to get the max posts on PPP. Woohoo, made USD78 in one day! Just for kicks.
shoppingmum – Yalor, after a while, we can write pretty fast liao, repeated stories oso dun care la, got money mah.
sesame – Ya, I have two old blogspots which I am writing for other ads programme than PPP. Works for me as well. No audience, no pressure. Like Ah Pek said.

Wah, so fast everyone bored oredi ah. Hahaha! Of course lah hor. U think so easy to make money wan meh? Want to make money not that so easy wan ler …. must use thinking cap abit ie crack head to think of what to write, got a little bit of pressure not to offend readers, must have some strategy to be able to bantai away etc etc. right anot?
David(January 4, 2007 - 11:10 pm)
The strategy is good for temporary but not long term. Last 2 years, I have 30-50 blogs using similiar setup, not to mention my Adsense income is 4 figure a month.
After a few months, all my sites kena ban by major search engine and it is really in my expectation. If our process is NOT automated, it really not worth our time at all.
Now, I left 10 good sites make money from Adsense. As always, don’t put all eggs in 1 basket. Now, Adsense cost per click went bottom and not really worth out at all.
From $20-30 earnings a day for 1 site to $3-5 a day. Now, no mood la.

If you’re the only one writing all the blog posts, it can really be tiring. But it can be a good source of income if you can find someone who’d help you come up with paid posts for your blog instead of you having to keep up with all those sponsored review requests.
