    One thing you can do to earn $50 is apply (and be approved for) one of the credit cards from CardOffers(.)com. I did this last month for a Discover card and I just received the check in the mail last Friday. I was very happy with their services, I was able to compare different credit cards, and eventually apply for a card I thought would be of great use to me, and I received a cash reward from them. =)

    Finance Section, I guess I didn’t do a good job making my point.

    I was trying to show how easy it was to enter the contest to win $50, in comparison to the other things you’d have to do to get $50. I guess the point is harder to convey in writing than in person.

    I’d rather keep chipping away at generating income from my blog than spending 8 hours working for the minimum wage. There’s no upside potential there.
