What Happens When Your Grand Per Month Dries Up?

At the beginning of May, I got an email that went something like this: “Google has noticed some irregular activity on your site and believes that you are posting unnatural links. For this reason, your Page Rank has been downgraded until you correct the issue.” This is not the email you want to see when you are enjoying your morning coffee (or ever for that matter).

How $1,000 a Month Could Change Your Life

The following post is authored by Derek from Life and My Finances.

Do you have any idea what an extra $1,000 could do for you? This extra income could change your life dramatically! Believe me, I have experienced what it was like before and what it’s like now, and the extra thousand bucks has definitely made my life a lot easier.

What Can $1,000 Buy?

You are surviving on your current income, right? So if you made another $1,000 every month, this could really be used to buy anything!

You could:

buy a cottage on the lake (in addition to your house) buy a brand new BMW or Mercedes (with payments of course) go on a huge shopping spree at the mall sponsor 30 children in Haiti go golfing every day

Now, I wouldn’t suggest doing most of these things (they just aren’t financially wise), but I just wanted you
