I am a huge fan of concerts on film! Recently MVD informed me about a fantastic performance on DVD by the Carpenters. For those of you who think you don’t know who the Carpenters are, consider for a moment if you have herd any songs from the 70s, chances are if you have then you probably herd a song or two by them. It’s rare that my generation gets a glimpse into the past in such a way that not only shares the culture and styles of the time, but also shows the amount of talent that was prominent during the time period.
The DVD is filmed in Japan and not only gives you a front row seat to a Carpenters concert, but it also shows how they were a worldwide favorite during the 70’s! The performance is phenomenal and a must see for any fan of their music, and even those who have yet to hear of them. There is such a rich history behind the band and their music, and they have withstood the test of time. To purchase a copy for yourself, just check out MVD’s website or click here: Carpenters Live In 1972.
Many people at their homes look for quick and easy ways to make a few dollars on the side. There are so many different places that claim to be a real source of online income, but how many of them are reliable? We decided to put the website Fiverr.com to the test. At Fiverr you tell everyone what you will do for $5 and they choose to buy your “gig” or not. A “gig” is what your service is called on Fiverr. Now, here’s where the confusing part comes in!
While the website is named Fiverr, suggesting that you actually make money in five dollar increments, you only get to keep four of those five dollars. Fiverr themselves take a dollar from each gig you sell. While this fee is very reasonable, some people do not like it. What sets Fiverr apart from the other money making websites out there? Well, it’s very simple to use, manage your gigs, receive payments that get sent to your PayPal, make a few dollars on the side, and of course Fiverr has a huge audience so your gig’s are sure to get viewed!
Oh, one more thing that you REALLY need to know about, because I find this quite annoying myself, is that once you complete a gig the money you get from it is held for 14 days to clear in their system. This allows you to build up more profits within those 14 days, but by then you of course have more money that needs to clear. You can withdraw after the 14 days and send the money straight to your PayPal account, but PayPal takes out their share, so it’s actually best to build up around $50 before you withdraw although you can withdraw at no minimum! So, all-in-all, we love Fiverr, and if you can put up with their small quirks and flaws, you can make some serious pocket change over some time. You won’t get rich, but you will get a few extra dollars! This is a real solution to making money on the side, it works, it’s not hard to use, it just takes time and your willingness to do things for fiver dollars and only get to keep four of it. So go ahead and give it look, Fiverr.com!
