A Few Quick Notes

I’ve got a random collection of things I feel like I should mention but don’t necessarily warrant their own post. So, I figured I’d throw em all together and let you sort them out.

I upgraded to WordPress 2.3 without incident. The only hiccup was with my FTP client. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you aren’t using WordPress (and on your own domain) you should seriously consider switching. It’s amazing.

If you haven’t upgraded yet, you should. Don’t believe me? Ask Kyle.

It seems WidgetBucks is going to be the next hugely hyped thing in the make money corner of the blogosphere. There’s not the tiered affiliate scam structure though and the program seems legit. I’ve added them to the Free for Signing Up page since they give you $25 for, you guessed it, signing up.
Edit: Crap, it looks like there are some issues with the service after all. Why is it that every new “exciting” way to make money lately has been surrounded by controversy? Even more importantly, are Darren, Yaro, and John harming their reputation by backing such services? This could very well be the 2nd scam in a row promoted by these guys.

I’ve been pretty disappointed so far with Dealdotcom. There’s been only one product I’ve even been remotely interested in, and the prices hardly seem like deals. Turns out, I’m not the only one that feels this way. CashQuests has a solid post about the website so hyped by Mr. Chow and others.

If you’ve not signed up for Text Link Ads you really should stop procrastinating. I just got another wonderful “Text Link Ads to Approve” email. I’m now making more than $100 a month from blogs I’ve not written for in months!
