Google Jobs

Initially they (Google) solicited bloggers using Blogspot (which they now own) who where "experts" in their blog topic to help advertisers develop targeted campaigns.

There are also quite a few people making a decent living with Ad Sense, writing on a topic while running Google ads alongside the text, earning so much per click (and it could be $10 a month up to $10,000 or more). If you create a blog using blogspot.com, you'll see the opt-in option for the Ad Sense program. If you can write knowledgeably about popular topics (with a lot of advertisers seeking attention) it can be a no brainer. For example, if you do a search on Google for "hotels playa del carmen" note the ads that come up on the right (though they might not appear down there--in the U.S. you get about twelve ads appearing with the results). If you wrote a blog about Playa del Carmen using blogspot, and opted-in for Ad Sense, those ads would appear in your blog and you would earn a percentage of each click. That may not be good topic in a revenue sense, but I've seen Playa del Carmen blogs not running the ads that could earning decent pocket money.

People writing about Alzheimer disease, for example, get a lot of traffic and clicks. I think the key is writing about stuff that interests you that has some commercial value.

Nadam--Google is hiring "experts" to work for, I think, $20 an hour as advisers. A few writers I know supplement their income working for them. I can dig for the link if interested (or it may be on their website somewhere).

Yay that's super encouraging! I'm so excited it's ridiculous!

I thought people could move sand from one part of the beach to another part of the beach.

I think you can do that as long as you're only moving what sticks to your butt, and you brush off at another location. Any more significant amount than that and you need a work permit. At least I think that's how it works. Of course, that's a lot more sand for some of us than others. I, for instance, can move commercial quantities using this method.
