Any Little Extra Can Help

That's the reason why I even started exploring the paid surveys world years back.  I was so curious about getting something extra and if this so called paid surveys really work.  It took a bit of getting used to and lots of practice surveys before I got the hang of it.  It wasn't that hard nor that easy.  It took much patience to understand the system and eventually started building up some points, rewards, credits or cash equivalent of any given survey.

Certainly not something that could make you rich but for someone who's trying to find some extra cash for the amount of time they have, why not?  It's convenient and you can do it whenever you can.  Just be mindful that once you start with a survey though, you'd have to finish it or else it will just expire session.  The surveys will always be there for an opportunity but you will have to exert an equal effort to finish them.  In time you wouldn't even notice the amount of time you put to finish one survey, once you start getting something out of it, then you'd find yourself wanting to do more.

I still use most of the survey sites listed on this blog, not as active as before due to lack time and I will keep doing surveys whenever I can because I really got good rewards and cash out of them.  Right now I am on a venture trying to expand my work and side jobs, doing online articles, translation service, and my promoting my personal projects.  Just like I said, every little helps.

What Rewards Can Get You

It's been a while since I last  paid much attention on doing my online surveys.  I got distracted focusing on some other things most especially work related matters. I admit that not doing surveys gives me much more time to do other things because it can be time consuming too.  That's the advantage though I have to admit that I miss the rewards that I do get to have from my survey works.

For the longest time I have collected some good DVD titles, gift certificates and gift cards, cash and checks.  Yes, that's all for paying more attention in doing my online surveys.  Sure thing it requires time but given the right survey site, you'll definitely reap some great rewards.  Some survey sites simply gives points and then redeemable items, while others have options for cash or checks. 

What I like doing surveys is that I get to earn extra cash that I don't feel guilty about spending for something else.  It's not part of my budget therefore I can have an extra splurge on some things I don't want to spend money for.  Say for instance to get a new pair of womens new balance walking shoes is something I'll feel so good about spending my survey rewards.  It enables me to get some good things for myself without the guilt of overspending or touching my monthly budget allotted for something.

25 Bucks From Synovate - Global Opinion Panels

I like the points system of Synovate - Global Opinion Panels because even if you don't qualify for the survey, you still get to earn fifty points credit. Somehow this helps add up to your overall points. Surveys are not as much as others but they are a lot simpler to complete. I was able to redeem quite a number of checks already though not in bigger amounts but it still works for me.

How to Make Greek Savory Cheesecake Easily

A cheesecake is a wonderful dessert that most people enjoy eating. You can make several variations out of it. If you like jello recipes, then you can make a recipe with a jello-topped fruit or plain jello topping. You can add anything that you like to the original recipe including marshmallows, nuts, chocolates, fruits or anything that you can find in your pantry or refrigerator.

If you have read the culinary history, then you will know that cheesecake was originally created by the Greeks and served to athletes during the first Olympics. The Romans adapted the recipe and spread it throughout Europe. The immigrants brought the recipe together with them when they moved to America and other parts of the world. Thus, the entire recipe that we currently have is no longer the original one, but a mixture of the original recipe together with the mix of local taste. Hence, we would like to know how the original recipe of our beloved food tastes.

We are going to discuss how the recipe tastes like when it was first introduced by the Greeks. This is a savory dish that is similar to vegetable and cheese quiche with a different texture. The original recipe is very easy to make, and you will surely love it especially if you like to make genuine international recipes.
This recipe is wonderful if you like savory meal ideas. The combination of olives, vegetables, sour cream, feta cheese, breadcrumbs and many other ingredients make this dish a gourmet feel. It is a good variation from the usual egg-based savory dish.

To make the crust

Grease a springform pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix on cup of breadcrumbs and one-fourth cup of grated parmesan. Spread the mixture over the pan in order to form the crust.

The mixture

Get a pound of cream cheese and beat it until it looks fluffy. Add four eggs, a cup of crumbled feta cheese and a cup of sour cream. Continue beating the mixture until it becomes very smooth. Fold in a handful of chopped olives, a chopped red bell pepper, two teaspoons of chopped basil and few pressed garlic cloves. The half of the mixture will be poured into the pan. Get some artichoke hearts and chop them. Mix and stir them into the other half of the mixture and pour them all together into the pan.

Bake the cheesecake for about 45 minutes until it is golden brown. Let it cool to room temperature before you start decorating it with additional crumbled feta cheese, chopped black olives and chopped red bell pepper.

Online Errands

I appreciate the guest post, Ignacio Phillips

I am so grateful that I can get so many of my errands done online. I can’t remember the last time I had to go to the bank or write a real check. All of my bills are set to pay automatically from my checking account and I can deposit checks through the ATM. I also don’t miss getting customer service over the phone. It’s so much easier to send an email and get a response or chat with someone online. I also made the switch from cable to satellite TV by going to www.CableTelevision.net and setting everything up. I also do most of my shopping online so I don’t have to fight the crowds at the mall. I can’t imagine how busy my life would be if I actually had to drive around and run errands all the time. Things would take so much longer and I would have to spend so much time in my car. Not to mention the amount of money I would probably have to spend on gas to get to all of these places.
