Get paid to blog

Get Paid Blogging Pictures, Images and Photos

I recently joined this new site called PayingPost. It is a blog advertising site that gives you certain topics to write about and they pay you for it. You select the topics that interest you and follow the simple steps and get paid. Each day different topics are posted and you write about whichever ones interest you. This site also has articles now and then about certain topics such as this one: Will bloggers suffer from the Global Economic Crisis?.

Blog advertisment is great for those who want more traffic to their site. It helps promote your site and get more visitors. PayingPost website also has a very catchy layout. It is not boring like most sites. I prefer this site over other blogging sites because they have interesting topics that most people would enjoy. They have a variety of topics to choose from and articles as well. They also have this thing called PayingPostDirect where companys can hire you directly to blog about them. All you do is place this banner on your site and let them find you. I like the idea of that. This way if you do not have time to check their site for open opportunities the company can just contact you directly.

I hate when men lie. Don't they realize they make it worse when they lie. So last night I found a few things that Mike searched for. Some of these things were:

He also went to which is a porn site that lists all these porn things. He must be jerking off to other females. This bothers me alot. I think it's cheating to jerk off to other naked woman when your married. I may be wrong to others but in my mind I'm right. He is also telling me he doesn't do that. I know he is lying because what guy doesn't do it. He doesn't realize that if he tells me the truth I'd be less mad then I am. Do not get me wrong I would be mad but it wouldn't be as bad as it is when he lies to me.

Before my husband and I ever got married we used to talk about possibly having a threesome with another female. We talI asked him ok but what do you think your role in this would be? I'm a very jealous person so no female is touching my husband. Me and her can go to town on each other and he can touch me but that is it. He tells me he will take whatever he can get. I asked him what that meant. He said whatever I will allow he will do. So basically if I allow him to fuck her he will. I got pissed!! He said I have no right to get mad. How would you have reacted? That is basically telling me he wants to fuck other girls. I'm still mad over this. Am I wrong?

Update on Weightloss

Well I gained 4 lbs. I'm really not going to the gym like I should be. I actually went tonight by myself. I walked for 15 minutes on the treadmill on an incline so I burned 153 calories. I also stopped at CVS and bought 6 pack of poland spring water and the slimquick flavor packs for the water. My goal now is to drink more water then soda (thats my weakness) and go to the gym for an hour everynight. I'll see how that goes.

Weight Loss

Well tonight was mt first night at the gym. I weigh 226. I started on the treadmill and walked for 30 minutes. It went up hill and would go fast and slow down. I was sooo out of breathe but I did burn 213 calories. Not bad. I also bought Diet Dr. pepper which tastes like regular soda. Thats my biggest weakness is soda and chocolate. I'll update you more on how this goes.

Questions I Hate Hearing During Deployment


"Aren't you afraid that he'll be killed?"

This one ranks in at number one on my "duh" list. Of course we're afraid, you dimwit. We're terrified.The thought constantly lingers at the back of our minds - but thank you so much for reminding me yet again. Maybe next you can go ask someone with cancer if they're scared of dying.

"I don't know how you manage. I don't think I could do it."

Though this is really annoying, I feel bad about mentioning it because I know that it is intended to be a compliment. Still, it's not like all of us military wives have been dreaming since childhood of the day we'd get to be anxious, light-sleepers who carry cell phones with us to the bathroom. We're not made of some mysterious matter that makes us more capable, we got asked to take on a challenging life and we rose to the challenge.

"He's in Iraq? I'm sorry."

This comment, while meant to be helpful, is annoying! My husband is doing exactly what he wants to do. He is making a positive difference in the world, training the Iraqi military, and helping children who dream of growing up in a world free from strife. This is his job, this is our life, and this is how we choose to live it. We choose to live this life because our ideology.

"Do you think he'll get to come home for Christmas/anniversary/birthday/birth of a child/wedding/family reunion, etc?"

Don't you watch the news? No. They don't get to come home for any of these things. No, they often don't get to teleconference as much as people assume we get to for special events. Please don't ask again.

"What are you going to do to keep yourself busy while he's gone?"

For one, try to keep my sanity. Maybe there is a military wife out there who gets bored when her soldier leaves, but I have yet to meet her. For the rest of us, we find ourselves having to fill the shoes of two people--husband and wife. On top of that we have to keep strong in public and ourselves in private. That keeps us plenty busy. We do get lonely, but we don't get bored.

"How much longer does he have until he can get out?"

This one is annoying to many of us whether our guys are deployed or not. Most of our men aren't counting down the days until they "can" get out. The military isn't a slave program they are sold into, it's a choice. Sorry to break it to you but many of them keep signing back up again and again because (gasp!) they love what they do.

"This deployment shouldn't be so bad, now that you're used to it."

I'm sorry, just how do you get used to watching your man go off to war? It's not a little business trip. There are bombs, bullets, and some very bad people who are bent on killing. My man and his guys are the barrier that keeps them from coming here and trying to kill us. Sure, we figure out ways to make life go smoother while the guys are gone. But it never gets easy and the bullets and bombs don't swerve around our guys just because they've been there before. The worry never goes away. It's not exactly conducive to easy sleeping. We learn coping skills. We never get used to it.

"Well, this is what you signed up for when you married him."

This is probably one of the most unthoughtful and brazen things you can say to a military wife. Not only that but it is the most common "insult" military wives come across. Firstly, thank you for showing a lack of common sense and compassion. By no means does a military wife faithfully commit to the lifestyle not expecting her husband to go to war and for his life to be put in extreme jeapordy however, how does that make us more or less prepared to receive his deployment orders? To tell him goodbye for 6, 13, or 15 months, or maybe forever? How does that prepare us for the random and unexpected battles we will face alone while they are away? We as military wives do not ask much from anyone, let alone civilians who have no idea what the life is like, but you can show a little compassion and support for us. We are the ones left behind as our husbands go to war. We are often more alone than you could ever know--show a little compassion and respect when you talk to us.

"My boyfriend had to go to Europe for business once for three weeks. I totally know what you're going through."

This one is similar to the one above. Do not equate your boyfriend's three week with a 7-10 month deployment to a war zone. Aside from the obvious trip length difference, nobody shot at your boyfriend or tried to blow him up with an I.E.D., your boyfriend could call home pretty much any time he wanted to, he flew comfortably on a commercial plane, slept between crisp white sheets and ate well, paying for everything with an expense account. There is no comparison. We do not feel bonded to you in the slightest because of this comment and, if anything, we probably resent you a bit for comparing a combat deployment to a business trip.

"Don't you miss him?"

No, not really... What do you think?! Of course we miss our men. If we didn't, we wouldn't be together!!!

Ok I weight 240..I want to weigh about 135-140. I have 100 lbs to lose..I kinda wanted to lose this before April but I know that's totally impossible. My husband returns from Iraq for 2 weeks leave in April and I wanted to look good for him. Well I bought special k cereal and water. My mom and I are joining the gym tommorow and will go an hour everynight after the girls go to bed. I'm nervous about not being able to do it. I've tried this soo many times before and failed. This time though it is a back issue. Maybe that will hopefully be my motivation..
