Earning Money With Online Poker

I have a few friends that started playing poker, well, first it was without money, then with money, but just with friends. Now it turns out they have started to play with people they don´t know that well. The money they have to pay to enter the party poker turnaments are a little higher than the first times they played, but it´s not that much. I have never tried it, and I probably won´t either. Poker might be fun, but I don´t bet with my money, I rather spend them on some stupid business online 🙂

Well, one of my friends in this poker gang has started to play a little online also. At first he played without money (just for fun), but now he has started to spend $20 now and then. It seems that he never actually win, well, he win some, but he always ends up a loser at the end of the day.

But fear not, some people are earning big playing poker and especially on the Internet. I just read an interesting article in Wired about a guy that quit his $110,000 a year job at eBay to stay home an play poker online. He is doing better than in the old job, he works fewer hours and spends more time with his family.

Sound interesting to me, but I don´t think I am going to try it.

    I don’t see anything wrong with this – though truthfully I’ve not looked too far into PayPerPost myself.

    I’m all for bloggers being able to make some income for their efforts. From what you’ve said, it sounds like participation is completely voluntary. And the topics they ask for…as a blogger, you get to decide whether you’d want to write or not.

    All-in-all, I think it’s a good experiment. Now, if blogs begin only posting posts written for and approved by PayPerPost, that’s a different story.

    I’m going to take a look at PayPerPost just to see more detail about what they do and who they serve.

    But the bottom line that every blogger – especially business bloggers – should consider is whether being involved with PayPerPost fits with your overall blog/business objectives. If not, you have your answer.

    I agree with you that this is a way for blogger to earn money for their efforts and that participation is completely voluntary. I am just a little conserned that a lot of bloggers will be writing about the same stuff, because this way they earn money and that the advertisers and Pay Per Post are the ones telling the bloggers what to write about.

    Well, I am really not that conserned I am just pointing out a potential problem 🙂
