I use to use Squidoo a fair bit but never really made much money. Money wasn't the goal though. The main goal was to get indexed quickly and to link to my money making pages. For me it's all about generating quality clicks...

Do you buy used books? If you do, where do you usually buy them? Would you buy a used book online? Are these books generally educational or for pleasure? I generally buy used books in local used book stores. I find them to be...

eclecticeducation We have a store in our area called Half Price Books and I absolutely love it!!! It is helpful to buy used when possible because books get expensive. I do not like buying them online though, because it's really impossible to tell what kind of condition they are...

Whats the rating process? Earning? What do you have to do? Whats the min cashout? Do they pay by paypal? Please give me more info!
eclecticeducation I absolutely LOVE Squidoo! I have been writing there for a year now and I am a Giant Squid there. The minimum payout is $1.00 and in my opinion that is extremely easy to get. The way you earn is to make lenses. You can monetize the lenses with Amazon products...

i just read the newspaper today and there is a comment written by one of the reader in the your comment section saying that people shouldn't be allowed to bring foods inside the cinema... the reason is because they create too much...

eclecticeducation Wow! I've never hear of this before!!! No, I don't think it should be banned. For one thing, even though I absolutely hate the horrible prices that cinemas charge for their concessions, the concession sales are vital to the cinema making money and I have heard...

I have often heard the argument that toy dolls and toy guns can have profound influences on a child’s life .Many argue that dolls given to a young girl may influence them to get pregnant at an early age as they seek to take care...

eclecticeducation I think it is normal for children to seek out these types of toys. In fact, I read about a psychologist once who tried to raise his children in a gender neutral environment without toys like toy guns and dolls and he noticed when his children went to their...

I got my idea for this discussion from a response to another discussion I posted recently about a classic sci-fi film. The poster said it would be great if the movie in question were to be remade with today's technology, that the...

eclecticeducation I don't know, sometimes I like the remake better than the original. I guess I kinda like that "up to date" feel to a movie, but there are some movies out there that I can't imagine as an update. Can you see a modern version of "Attack of the Killer...

So I finally got around to watching the 2008 remake of this sci-fi classic and all I can say is: "What a pile of utter rubbish." The story's pathetic. There's absolutely no clear message, just a bunch of namby-pamby "we can...

eclecticeducation I was wondering about the movie. The previews looked ok, but not something my husband and I wanted to rush out and see (and spend $50.00 for between tickets and concessions!!!). I'm glad I'm getting a chance to read some reviews first. We'll probably save our...

eclecticeducation I am sorry you had a bad experience with this place, but thank you for spreading the word about them. With times being so hard for many people, a lot of us are looking for extra work online and it hard sometime to tell what is a scam and what isn't. There are...

eclecticeducation My absolute favorite was probably Prince Caspian, I have a real soft spot for the Narnia series, but it was closely followed by Indiana Jones. Another favorite was Nim's Island. I also really enjoyed The Spiderwick Chronicles so much so, that I read the books...

eclecticeducation Good grief!!! That is so stupid. No movie is worth shooting someone over. My husband and I still like to go to the theaters sometimes for the really big blockbuster type movies, but most movies we watch at home. I just can't wait for the day when we can afford...

eclecticeducation Yes, they do enjoy them, especially the little one. He is 6 years old and at that age where he's really into all of this. My oldest child is starting to grow out of some of it since he is 12, but he likes watching movies with us and of course he loves cookies...
