I have spent most of my time researching for ways to earn money online. It's not a shame to want earnings. Nowadays, in order to get most of costly internet connection, one has to earn also so you could at least pay for the bill! One way to earn is through social networks like FanBox because it pays. Some social networks don't pay like facebook, myspace and twitter. I also have found another social site that pays: The PayMeSocial.com. You can also be a member there as well and promote your fanbox blogs through it and vice versa. And that's just one way.
One of my problems encountered while researching is that being a non-techie, it takes a lot of my time doing it because I have to read each twice and have to do a bit more researching inbetween readings so I can understand the terms like SEO, referrals, PTC, PTR, links, backlinks and all those terms used by entrepeneurs of the web world. So little by little, I now have a bit of understanding how these things work. And there are still A LOT to learn.
I know there are some of you who experienced what I've been through...and my heart goes to all you!
