LinkVehicle – Get Paid for Blog Posts

LinkVehicle is a SEO Advertising Company that connects advertisers with bloggers. They have large companies such as WalMart, Macy’s, Gerber, and many other brand name companies looking to pay for posts from bloggers. They are also branching out into other social media activities. I haven’t yet started working with them, but it looks promising. You can sign up as a publisher with LinkVehicle here.

Free Eyewear for Bloggers at Firmoo

Firmoo is offering FREE eyewear to bloggers in exchange for a review.  I haven’t worked with this company personally and companies that have horrible grammar on their web site always make me a little leery, but it appears they are not US-based and didn’t employ someone to do good translations.)  Anyway, you can see all the details at Firmoo.com on their Free Eyewear for Bloggers page.

If you have experience working with them, please tell us about it in the comments.

Use Flickr to Find FREE Images to Use in Your Blog Posts

To grab and keep a reader’s attention, it is always important to add photos or images to your blog posts.  However, if you’re not a photographer with you own stash of photos to use, this can be tricky.  You can subscribe to stock photo sites, but you will be spending money for the pictures you use.

One great and easy-to-use source of free images is Flickr.  BUT, you can’t just grab any Flickr image and post it on your blog.  To find images you can use, click on the Advanced Search option in Flickr.


On the Advanced Search page, enter the type of image you are searching for.  Then scroll down to the bottom of the screen where you will see this logo and click on “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content”. If your blog is a nonprofit, that is all you need to do, then just hit search. However, if you blog for profit, you will also need to select “Find content to use commercially”. You will then find images that you can use in your post.

Once you find the image you want, click on the “Share” button and then copy the Grab the HTML/BBCode to use in your post.
