Testing SlideJoy’s App

Hey Folks: It’s time to search for ways to bring in more money. Because of all my health issues, I’d like to do it while conserving the most energy I can. To that end, I’m testing out a new app called SlideJoy. With this app, ads are on your phone when you go to open it.

The best part is that you get paid whether you look at the ads (swipe left) or not (swipe right and open your phone).

Here’s what my earnings look like so far:

I’m not exactly sure why the earnings get divided up like they do. So I went on the hunt. Here’s what I found:

1) According to this article, you earn more money if you sign up through Facebook. Wish I knew how much more, and whether it was worth it to give them access to all my friends information. If it’s just a matter of a few cents, then no.

2) Depending on the article you read, the CEO says that people get paid either around $3/month or between $5-15.

3) There’s a 3 month wait period to get your money the first time. After that you get paid monthly.

4) SlideJoy doesn’t work outside the United States.

 

I’ll keep reporting back so you can trace my earnings along with me. In the meantime, if you want to give it a go yourself, SlideJoy can be downloaded here.

When The Boys’ Room Isn’t Safe For A Boy

My son is six and a half years old.  He’s been potty trained with nary an accident since exactly his third birthday.

Last week, in his first grade classroom, he peed his pants.  He sat in his urine until the dismissal bell rang.  His pants were soaked and cold when he got out of school.  He was uncomfortable and he smelled.  He didn’t want anybody to know.  It was his secret.

He started crying in the car.

“I’m so ashamed of myself,” he said over and over again.  Tears rolled down his face, even though he willed them not to.  He couldn’t hold them back.

Come to find out, my son — with his long auburn hair, pink and purple fitted clothes, feminine backpack and wrist full of rainbow-colored loom bracelets – is terrified to use the boys’ bathroom at school.

Drinking the Kool-Aid: What Jonestown, the FLDS, and Michael Brown’s Death All Have in Common

I watched a 20/20, or a Dateline, or one of those shows last week. It was a repeat, about Warren Jeffs, and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and it’s haunted me all week.

Basically, this religious sect, if I understand it correctly, is a less-forgiving, more rigid model of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, better known as Mormons. They believe in plural marriage, living exclusively amongst others who believe the same,educating their own, staying far away from the world at large, etc…

Long story short, the original leader of this church, Rulan Jeffs, passed away, and the position was quickly assumed by his son, Warren, who assured his followers he was a conduit of God.

Trouble was, he was a criminal and a rapist, sentenced to twenty-plus years for aggravated sexual assault on a minor, i.e…
