As for Youdata, I think they are a scam. I know there are others still advertising them, I am saying beware. I got paid the first two weeks no problem. Then there stopped being any ads to view, but I did start getting about 10 text messages per day to my cell phone. From companies I do not know who they were. I suspect they were from Youdata. They want your cell phone number so they can send you text advertising ads, for which you get paid nothing for. I quit that sight, and am trying to get the numbers blocked so they can not send me text ads anymore.
ChaCha still remains my best income earner, after two years of being with them.

OK I already work for ChaCha, and Weegy is sort of similar to ChaCha. I have been there for a while, and made a whole 60 cents. It is a chat service, with search functionality to answer your questions. There is a very long wait in between questions that come through, and you only have a short amount of time to accept the question.
With that said, I am still learning how to use their system, it is a bit different. You get points for contests, and not all questions you answer actually get paid the 20 cents it states you should. I am willing to keep trying this site, on the side of my others, to learn more of how it works and to make more money.
If you use Weegy and have some great tips on using it effectively, please feel free to comment, both good and bad. If you would like to give Weegy a try go to http://www.weegy.com and fill out the required info. Good luck!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you have a cell phone? Most of us do, I do. Boost Mobile now offers Reboost. What is Reboost? Reboost is a convenient and simple way for you to make payments for your Boost Mobile phone. With Re-Boost you can pay for your Boost Mobile phone bill in three different ways. You can use a credit or debit card to pay online. You can make it so it pays monthly, or a one time payment. You can pay in person by using the zip code finder to find the nearest Reboost center nearest to you. Or you can use your Boost Mobile cell phone to make a payment. A family member or friend can even make a payment for you. Snail mail is such a pain, instead use Reboost.
Sounds great right? But you are saying I don't have Boost Mobile as my cell phone provider. Maybe you are thinking about switching anyways, for whatever reason, from your current cell phone provider. Boost Mobile offers the Blackberry with a variety of plans available. You can buy the monthly plan for $50 dollars a month, pay as you go for 10 cents a minute, or the Blackberry monthly unlimited plan for $60 dollars per month, with unlimited 411 and IM. They have a variety of phone designs for you to choose from that will meat all your needs. You can add additional features if you want, and can replenish your minutes right from your phone. Plus are you a Facebook or Twitter lover? Using the Boost Mobile cell phone service allows you to update and socialize with all your friends and family, with the greatest of ease.
Don't wait, head over to Boost Mobile and see if they can provide you with the cell phone needs you desire.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mission Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you ever heard of Mission Flour Tortillas? If not, now you have. We love tortillas here at my house. Mission Flour Tortillas are healthy, and inexpensive. Did you know you can feed a whole family for ten bucks or less using Mission Flour Tortillas? Now you can win a free kitchen by entering the Mission Menus Challenge. To enter you have to come up with a recipe using Mission Flour Tortillas, that can feed a family of five for ten dollars or less. You only have until August 9th to get your recipes in, so don't dilly dally.
So now that the formal stuff is over what about Mission Flour Tortillas the Company? Mission Foods is a major sponsor of Share Our Strength to help end childhood hunger in America. Mission Flour Tortillas contain zero cholesterol, and zero grams of trans fat per serving. That not enough to convince you to try them. They come in three different sizes for the ultimate convenience and recipe versatility. What do I make with Mission Flour Tortillas? You can be so creative with these. I especially love them in the hot weather, because who wants to cook? Make fajitas with steak, ground beef, turkey, chicken or go meatless and add beans. Make a grilled peanut butter and jelly tortilla, and sprinkle on powdered sugar at the end of grilling. Serve them warm, and your kids will beg for more. My absolute favorite, however, is to warm Cheese Wiz then spread it on the Mission Flour Tortilla. Add shredded lettuce, ground beef, diced tomatoes, small amount of salsa and sour cream and voila a Chalupa is born. At least I think it is a Chalupa, that is what we call them. You can make it even more healthy by using ground turkey, or making a fish fajita, or chalupa. Make it a completely cold sandwich by adding sliced turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Then roll them up into little rolls seal with a toothpick and you have fancy little sandwiches. Turkey salad, chicken salad, BLT's, it doesn't matter they are all awesome. And did you know that tortillas have way less calories, and fat than two slices of bread?
Feeding a family of five does not have to be expensive. Just ask all of us who love Mission Flour Tortillas. If you are creative, frugal, and have a great recipe for Mission Flour Tortillas, then head over to their website, and win yourself a free kitchen. Good luck!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Medical Guardian. All opinions are 100% mine.None of us are getting any younger, and a lot of us have parents, friends, or other loved ones in their elder years that live alone. A slip, trip, or fall can be both frightening and dangerous for anyone let alone an elderly person. We always think it won't happen to me, or my loved one, but statistics show that is just not true. For example poor lighting, a dog or cat, wrinkle in the rug, wet floor, or even poor balance are all things that can cause a fall and break a bone rendering you unable to get up.
I am sure you have heard of medical emergency devices that you wear around your neck. This device known as the Medical Guardian can keep you or your loved one safe. It works very simply. All you do is press the button when you need assistance, and can not get to your phone to call for help. The device immediately makes an alarm at your local EMS office. A live person will pick up the phone, and you simply talk telling them what is wrong. An ambulance will be there to assist you up, and transport you to the hospital if necessary.
I think we are all afraid of falling and injuring ourselves, especially as we get older. Statistics show that only one fall can change an elderly person's life forever. You might have a long rehab, and even have to be in a nursing home for a little bit of time. No one wants to lose their independence, and going to the nursing home is very frightening to most people. So what are some tips for preventing falls? Clean up all spills immediately, make sure electric cords do not run all over the floors causing tripping, have a rug instead of tile floors especially tile floors with those scatter rugs, wear slip resistant shoes even in your home, if you want a pet for company have a smaller dog that will not jump and knock you down. Even smaller dogs, or even cats can get under your feet and cause you to trip and fall. So be sure to pick a breed that is not hyper and is known for being well behaved. Always have good lighting so you can see well, especially at night. You can keep your loved ones safe, have peace of mind, and know that they will be cared for when you can't be around. A Medical Guardian medical alert system is just what you and your family need to be sure that happens. Be sure to visit the Medical Guardian site and see all your options, and learn more about how it all works. Be safe, and healthy in your Golden Years. They are after all supposed to be your time to relax and enjoy life.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of SupaSwap Corporation. All opinions are 100% mine.
The other very cool thing is that all members of the family can add things they may want to trade, or sell. So say your ten year old son wants to get rid of some video games, and sees some he would like to trade for, he can do so. There are parenting controls for the different age groups allowed, so that it is safe and secure for all involved. Plus they have a monthly game where the top sellers get points that can be used in the future.
Be sure to check out the fact that this site sells in different currencies, much like Ebay. So be sure to contact the seller to ask for the amount both the item, and shipping will cost in whatever currency you will be using. It is very important because you could bid on something, and it cost way more than you expected, especially shipping. Always ask for shipping with delivery confirmation, and pay with Paypal for the ultimate safety and guarantees of getting your item. Whatever you do be sure to check this site. I know I am going to give it a try, and see how it goes. I already see a few things I could definitely use. Simply click the visit sponsor button below, and get started.
