How I Make Money Blogging Managing Your Monthly Nut


Crystal For Hire


I have been a staff writer on and off for the last 3 years for over half a dozen sites.  I’ve written for Bargaineering, Sweating the Big Stuff, and Broke Professionals among others.  I can also ghost write 300-500 word posts very quickly while incorporating anchor text of your choice.

Create Your Budget

I have recently helped two of my friends set up a plan for debt payoff and retirement savings.  They both have started telling me to branch out and I try to always follow good advice.  I figured this would be the perfect fit – help others get their finances under their own control and build up a little padding too.

If you are trying to come up with a REALISTIC plan to payoff debt, save more, or just to be able to watch closer, please let me know.  We can:

– Review Your Numbers (Income and Expenses)
– Make a Plan Together – one that you will not just stick to, but may even enjoy
– And I will send you everything in its Excel sheet by the end of our meeting.

I do not want to hurt your financial efforts and I am just branching out, so I am keeping this to a flat $60.  That will include the emails and calls to get all of the numbers together, working out the plan, emailing your Excel budget to you, and a follow up call a month later.

All I ask is that you recommend me to others if you are happy with my help.

Please email me at budgetingfunstuff *at* gmail *dot* com with any questions or to get started.

Commenting for Hire

Do you need commenting help? I do offer my commenting services for $3 per comment.  This $3 covers reading the entire post, leaving 2 sentences or more of my take on the post, emailing the blog owner if I see that my comment gets caught in spam, keeping up a record for you of where the comments are posted, AND Tweeting one of your own blog’s posts from my account weekly (more than 1300 followers as of April 24, 2012 – you can choose the post you’d like Tweeted each week).

Every single comment would have Crystal @ YourBlogName, either my email or the one of your choosing (my email would show my logo when avatars are shown), and your blog’s URL.  I will email you a weekly/monthly list (your choice) of where the comments were left.  You can send me a list of the blogs that you would like me to comment on or I can create a list of my own – again, your choice.

EVERY COMMENT I AM HIRED TO LEAVE WOULD BE FROM ME.  This is not an outsourced business venture.  100% Crystal.

I only fit in enough time to leave 50 comments per month, so please email me with the number of comments you have in mind per week (1-25 of the spots left).  No minimum order is required.  When those 50 spots are claimed, I will still keep a list of anyone else who is interested in case spots open up.  If the waiting list gets crazy long, I will stop advertising my services until it is reasonable again.

My aim is to keep this organized and everyone completely happy.

Crystal For Hire Advertising Services

I made more than $750,000 for my ad clients between April 2011 to April 2013.  I started with my first client, Kay Lynn from Two Savvy Sisters,  in April 2011 and am now running the advertising for more than 400 other sites as well.

Each of these bloggers trusts me and my husband and partner, Mr. BFS, to run their ad emails for them so they get the best deals possible.  We only get paid after they do.

Our services handle advertising like sidebar ads and sponsored posts.  We would not be useful with affiliate or product advertising, but we seem to be the most helpful for anyone who doesn’t have time to deal with this part of blogging or those who would like access to a larger advertiser contact pool.

Our biggest selling points:

1.  Make More Money – My clients and I have built up a contact pool of more than 100 advertisers.  Many of those enjoy one-stop shopping with our group.
2.  Save Time – We will answer those emails for you.  Yes, even the ones that you aren’t sure are for ads.
3.  Don’t Short Change Yourself  – Since we do have more than 400 client sites, we can keep an eye out on the going rates and haggle on your behalf.

We would love to help with your direct advertising!

Do you need some help with your Microsoft Excel pages?

My husband can help you develop a great system to keep up with your advertisers, revenue, expenses, or a variety of other needs using Microsoft Excel!  My own pages even highlight the ads that are ending in the current month so I don’t forget to attempt to extend a campaign!  We do offer a 100% money back guarantee on these pages if you aren’t completely satisfied.

Please feel free to contact me directly at budgetingfunstuff *at* gmail *dot* com.
