Get paid to play on the interwebs?

I feel like I’m sounding like a shill lately because I’ve been mentioning a lot of products by name.  In the case of the Eggies and True Lime, it’s really only because I know of no other brands even remotely close to them.  With the R.S.V.P. pen, it’s because it is truly one of my favorite pens out there.  And now I’m going to mention something that might compensate me in a tiny way, if people choose to sign up using my link, or it might not.  And frankly I’m fine either way, because I want to share with the world how I recently acquired this awesome pair of shoes:

And how I was able to pre-order this awesome book:

(Okay, I can only make assumptions as to its awesomeness, but I have faith The Bloggess won’t let me down.)

And all I personally spent was $6.  Total.  If you’re counting, my bill should have been bout $56.00, but I earned myself a $50 gift code by “googl[ing] that shit, hooker; it’s not obscure.”

Okay, not exactly Googling.  Swagbucking.  I signed up for Swagbucks in November of 2010, added their search button to my search box, and more or less continue to search exactly how I usually search.  Every once in a blue moon I don’t get the answer I’m looking for (usually for images), but it’s extremely rare.  And, yeah, $50 in a year isn’t a TON of money, but if you play your cards better than I usually do–like, for instance, searching through Swagbucks for items on Amazon or for info on IMDB, instead of on the actual sites–it could be more.

Now, The Hippy hates that I use Swagbucks.  It drives him nuts to be using my computer and not land on Google.  Nevermind the fact that he has a million computers of his own he could be using…  But he asked me the other day in a tone of annoyance, “Have you ever even gotten anything from that stupid Swagbucks?”  To which I promptly said, “Yes.  Yes I have,” and showed off my awesome new shoes.  Boo-ya!

So, if you want to sign up for Swagbucks and give me some credit (again, no hard feelings if you don’t, but I’d be tickled pink!), click that link, then add /refer/kattghoti to the URL.  WordPress won’t let me post a referral link, but at the moment I’m not “serious” enough to buy my domain.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I am coming down with a cold, so I am going to snuggle into bed with my nook.
