Submit Stories and Get Money with Glamorati
Glamorati is having a headline writing contest, announced in the News from the Glamorati blog. In June, all you have to do is submit stories to Glamorati, and you’ll receive $5 for each published story. Here’s how it works:
Participants will receive $5 for each published submission and the grand prize is $500 which goes to the contestant with the most number of points (published submissions = 10 points and comments on the site = 1 point)
So what you need to do is find a funny, interesting, or weird pop culture story to submit, which shouldn’t be so hard since pop culture is all that by itself. You’ll need a Glamorati account, but that’s no biggie.
So that’s it? Find a story, submit, it gets published, you get $5 and the chance of the $500 grand prize? Ryan Caldwell of Glamorati, won’t this be expensive?
Yes, but probably not as expensive as developing the site in the first place. ;-)
Ouch. Or not. On a more serious note, Ryan explained:
Since headline writing is so important to blogging, I thought this contest would be a natural fit for the blogging community.
Good luck on the contest, Ryan. Be sure to check out Glamorati and the contest post in the News from the Glamorati blog.

Shortly before Christmas I took my 6 year old grandson, Cameron, to a local discount store to shop. As we approached the entrance, I saw the Salvation Army kettle and bell ringer so I dug out a handful of change for Cameron to drop in. He made his donation but was very quiet until we got inside the store. Then he said, very seriously: “Gramma, can I ask you a question?” I said certainly, Cam, anything. He then said: “Why do we have to pay to get into this store now?”
