With that said...

I recently signed on with a site that pays you to socialize. It's called Sidetick, and it's a site that pays you to socialize online. Make friends, promote your website or blog, join groups, post polls, create blogs, share pictures...basically it's the same stuff you do on Facebook for free.

If you want to join Sidetick, you may do so here. The payout is $ 25.00, and I've already received my first payment and am almost at my second payout!

Let me start by saying that I would NEVER recommend a money-making opportunity if it wasn't legit.  Why?  Because this is my blog.  It represents me and who I am and I am an honest person.  So, whenever you see me recommend something, I honestly believe it to be a good thing.

With that said...

I recently signed on with a site that pays you to socialize.  I've tried some of the others before and they were AWFUL!  But, I think I may have stumbled onto something good with this one.  It's called Sidetick, and it's a site that pays you to socialize online.  Make friends, join groups, post polls, create blogs, share pictures...basically it's the same stuff you do on Facebook for free.

If you want to join Sidetick, you may do so here.
