Radio Free Bliss - Interview with Yours Truly, is live!

Yours truly is the guest interviewee on March's RADIO FREE BLISS podcast with author KS Augustin. We discussed a lot of things - yummy heroes, why we think erotic romance gets a bad name, Alpha Smarts and the wonders (and downfall) of technology, Florida, my books (of course!). In short, we had a very good time. To check it out (and hear my voice), please click on this link: http://radiofreebliss.KSaugustin.com You don't need to download anything as the podcasts can be played from the website, but I've also included MP3 and OGG download options for the more active among us. Let me know what you think! Once again, let me say "Thank you, Kaz! What a great opportunity." And let me give props to Kaz. Y'all visit her website as well. She's one of my awesome fellow authors at www.total-e-bound.com and her books are to-die-for. They're must reads. You can find out more about Kaz and her books here. http://www.ksaugustin.com Onto another topic, have any of you made money from your blogs? Or thought about it? I just found a site called "Pay Per Post" at www.payperpost.com. I just signed up as a "postie". I'm still in the review process. Supposedly, I can earn $ for giving reviews and writing articles about specific merchandise and services which I would occasionally post to my blog. Has anyone tried either this particular service or one like it? What do you think? Supposedly, some people make a living from just blogging. Wow! To think I could stay home and earn a living just writing. What a novel concept. Who'd have thunk???

I always think there's a catch to those ads. Like the infomercials about working from home and making enough money to buy a second home. I'm more interested in getting more readers who are interested in the Bar than making money. Dunno why, but the more people who read the Bar the happier I get. LOL Thanks for coming by my blog!

I'm wondering, too. But thought I'd look at it. At the least it might be free promo. But I'll see...

Hmmm...I would be interested to see what happens. I am always skeptical of those sounds to good to be true things

Ashley Ladd said...

That's two votes against too good to be true. Ummmm...

Me too Ashley - I am a bit of a cynic! But I really don't know about this because I blog for different reasons.
I have seen a couple of sites publish books on the back of their blogs, one is a journalist (Wife In the North ~ UK) and the other seems to have stumbled on it due to her success (Indexed ~ US).
I will be interested to see what happens...

Hi Ashley,
Your voice sounds really young, like about 20 years old! Mslexia mag did an article a few months back about people who make a living from blogging, you can google them for it I expect. I posted my answer to your tag today.

I don't think of myself as a gullible person, and yet I got sucked into Mary Kay. I don't think this would hurt anything as they're not asking me to pay money. But if they did, I'd run FAST in the opposite direction. Or if it's too much work without seeing any pay.

As for my voice, I'd not heard that before about it sounding so young. I'm 48, so I don't mind, mind you... :)
