I Signed Up For Social Spark!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

So you think I'm cheap!  Well I am but that's because I have to be.  Well in my desire to find a way to enjoy my blog without feeling like I'm being totally selfish and not contributing to my household I signed up for SocialSpark.  They have a system that allows advertisers to find you based on certain characteristics of your blog.


This is one way I have found to be able to buy all the craft supplies and to pay for shipping all the swaps I love to do so much.  It also helps me feel like I'm not asking  Neil for every dime.  Actually, I don't know many people who haven't had to change their lifestyle somewhat because of this cruddy economy.  We know neighbors selling homes even losing homes.  And mind you this is a nice neighborhood.   Not just neighbors but friends and family too.  Lots of people seem to have realized that Mac-mansions aren't so necessary after all.

A fact that I love about SocialSpark is that the sponsored link automatically carries the 'no follow' rule.   That way it does not affect the search engine rankings.  This is to protect bloggers and advertisers from being penalized from the search engines for writing paid posts.  They also adhere to a strict code of ethics as listed below:
  • 100% Audit-able In-Post Disclosure
  • 100% Transparency
  • 100% Real Opinions
  • 100% Search Engine Friendly
 You can read more about SocialSparks code of ethics by clicking here.   SocialSpark is also a very social forum where instead of just being chosen because your blog has a high page rank, you are also chosen based on your participation in different things on the site and your interactions with other bloggers.

Stop by and check it out yourself.  Just click here to sign up with SocialSpark.

  2. Hello Tracy~We had Sunshine for M-Day! A rare treat for the Pacific Northwest. We relished every minute of it. It's a good thing, cause by evening we were back to rain.
    Hope you had a day of pampering followed with something engulfed in chocolate.

    Sweet wishes,

  3. Thanks for the information Tracy. Hope you are having a great day. Be blessed. Cindy

  4. Hi there sweety. I went and checked out Social Spark. I'm not sure how it works though. Do I just write posts about certain products and then I get paid for them or what? Can you explain it to me. Can't wait to see your review from CSN. Hope you hade a wonderful Mother's Day.
