Trying to Get By in Today’s Economy By Blogging, Pay Per Post Denied My Blog

So far our attempts to make a little extra money by starting this website and blogging haven’t gone very far. We signed up for Google adsense, but we wont see any real income through that until we get a good amount of traffic coming through our site. So we tried to sign up for payperpost.com, thinking we could write a few articles throughout the week and earn a few bucks that way. After submitting our site, we learned to much disappointment that we were rejected from PayPerPost because of the following reasons.

This is the email that i received from them –

Unfortunately, blogs must be active for at least 90 days in order to participate, as per our terms of service.   Remember, a blog must have at least 20 pre-existing original clearly written posts in the last 90 days prior to using our service. Please re-submit when the requirements are met.  In the meantime, feel free to use PPP Direct and Affiliate tools while you work on meeting the requirements of our Marketplace!

This was kind of a bummer to find out. We are just trying to make a little side income, and if we want to use Pay Per Post, we will have to wait 90 days, and have at least 20 posts up. The 20 posts in 90 won’t be a problem, I think we are about half way there after a week of having our blog up, it’s just the time limit that is unfortunate. I think Pay Per Post should allow bloggers with over 20 posts to participate in their service, even if their site is not over 90 days old. If they can get 20 legitimate posts up before 90 days, that shows more determination and drive than you will see on most sites. There isn’t much we can do about that now, so I guess we will just try again in 90 days and hope we get accepted then. And in the meantime search for some other ways to make money by blogging.

Check back for updates and reviews on our attempts at other money making blog opportunities!

Phone Number is Locked Into Google Voice and Can’t Access It, Releasing Your Phone Number From Google Voice

I recently signed up for a google voice account. I got a Google voice number and hooked it up to my cell phone. A week ago I canceled that account that I had the Google voice number signed up to. Even though I canceled the account all together, the Google voice phone number is still attached to my cell phone.

Now I cannot access my google voice account at all to get my cell phone number off of it. I have tried visiting the forums, and submitting tickets to Google, but there doesn’t seem to be any solution to this problem. My cell phone number is locked into Google Voice and I Can’t Access It, so i can/t get my cell phone number released from the account.

I am still looking for a way to have google voice release my phone number from an account that doesn’t exist anymore.

I have tried creating a new Google voice account and putting my cell phone number into it, but it just tells me that “the phone number is already being used.” There are no options to overwrite the number that is already being used.

The google Voice Forums have not been any help at all. And the responses from the tickets that I have submitted aren’t even close to resolving this issue.

If you have any information as to how i might be able to do this, please let me know. Feel free to post coments with any suggestins.
