For a Little Spark!

For the new couple embarking on an exciting new love, sparks are definitely in abundance! A mere brush of his hand against your fingers sends shivers down your spine and you wonder what's in store for you in this totally new world filled with only beautiful flowers and rainbows.

For the married couple, which has been together for a while, sparks are comparatively rare. After learning to adjust, accept and be completely comfortable with one another, sparks are more precious, making it vital for you to work harder at keeping them alive.

And last but not least, for the ambitious blogger like me who loves making new friends, gaining wider readership, monetizing my blog, building community and driving higher traffic, sparks are flying everywhere in the blogosphere with the emergence of a new advertising program called SocialSpark!

When I first heard about SocialSpark, I was very much intrigued. I mean who wouldn't? Any new program that gives me the opportunity to earn some money off my blog is much welcomed! Aside from all the perks I mentioned above, there is one particular feature that I love about SocialSpark and that is their special Blogger Bonus, awarded to one or more Bloggers every month for the best post written about a particular opportunity.
I think this is simply fabulous as it encourages bloggers to come up with a perfect, if not the best post for a given opportunity. You also get 12 full hours to complete the task at hand, which is a pretty reasonable amount of time.

Just like any other paid advertising programs, SocialSpark also has several code of ethics, which need to be strictly adhered including:

-100% Audit-able In-Post Disclosure
-100% Transparency
-100% Real Opinions
-100% Search Engine Friendly

So today, I'm happy to announce that SocialSpark has accepted me into this awesome community! The best part of this whole program is the fact that I get to enjoy another forum for me to interact and keep in touch with my blogger friends who are already members like LJ, Roxy, Christy, Mark, Bless, Nick, Elaine, Keeyit and Nessa. Obviously they're having a blast at SocialSpark, making new friends and gaining greater exposure for their blogs, and I'm happy to be a part of it! So what are you waiting for? I'm already here at SocialSpark and would love to see more familiar faces in my network. Are you ready to join me at SocialSpark and bring our blogging experience to an entirely new level of community outreach, traffic building, blog monetizing and social networking? Hurry up peeps...I'll be waiting! :)

LadyJava April 29, 2008 1:48 AM

Yeah... check it out but I don't suggest you put on Mariuca.. coz of BotB kan.. pple might not like it...

Mariuca April 29, 2008 1:52 AM

Is that so? Thanks LJ, I shall read up more on this sponsorship. Eh, do u think I should add MPG to SS? I haven't.

LadyJava April 29, 2008 1:54 AM

I think SS ok kot.. sebab if you noticed their link all contain no-follow.. so that is ok with the big G!!

So Yes, I think you should add MPG there as well :)

Mariuca April 29, 2008 2:04 AM

Great woman! You know how much I value ur opinions when it comes to all this stuff! I shall happily add MPG now. :) Am also trying to figure out how to add my faves to SS.

LadyJava April 29, 2008 2:10 AM

hehheehe.. blush blush...malu i...lolzz.. tapi kembang gak ni...

To add fav to SS, you just go to the person profile and click FAV... I also had a hard time looking.. but now dah terror!!! lolzz!!!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 2:16 AM

Yay, I made LJ blush! :)

Oh that's good to know, I thot I was the only one having probs finding the fave button. Anyway, I managed to find it and faved u oredi! They shld allow more than 9 faves, tak cukup! :)

LadyJava April 29, 2008 2:18 AM

Anonymous,  April 29, 2008 3:42 AM

Hi your latest comment on my Desperate Housewives: Roxy vs. Roxy also left one earlier on my Energizer lollipop post :)

I've been having troubles with the vanishing comments lately, too...Matt tells me that I can't leave comments on Blogger/Blogspot blogs while in the midst of a Battle of the Blogs, you need to close the frame...that didn't used to be the case for me, but maybe it is some new problem?

Thanks as always for your BotB votes, you've got mine, too!

Are you on midnight owl time now...3:30am? (It is 3:30pm here)

Anonymous,  April 29, 2008 3:45 AM

On that SocialSpark lollipop post, I hope you or LJ can get "full price." I clicked "wait for post" when it was $11.00, then a day or two later got a reservation at $5.50...I don't know about you, but that just about gets me a cup of Starbucks!

Soge shirts April 29, 2008 6:19 AM

This sounds pretty interesting maybe i will join social spark too.

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 7:27 AM

You are so kind to me. All I need is a little spark so that I can be social. Of course a wangi social spark. Can?

Mariuca April 29, 2008 7:42 AM

Hi Roxy, I can leave comments when voting for BOTB, I have to leave the comment first, before clicking the confirmation button. Then it'll be okay!

Yay, thanks Roxy, I won my battle. You too LJ for voting!

And I noticed some ppl mentioning the same thing too. About the post received being lower priced than what was reserved.. there are some new posts today, hoping to get one for my other blog, if it gets approved that is! ;)

Mariuca April 29, 2008 7:43 AM

Hi Tim! It's great to have you here and yes, join us! The more the merrier! :):):)

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 7:44 AM

I thought of getting finger tips of perfumery at Facebook, so I can slice wangian at my vital spots. Yet, you allow me to bathe in this smelling industry. Phoebe, no jealous okay...Uncle dah wangi sekarang. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 7:45 AM

LOL! Morning Zubli! Does this mean I'm forgiven for not sending you more perfumes? He he... Happy breakfast ye. :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 8:07 AM

Dear the Genie Princess Mesra Marzie Marvelous Mariuca Phoebe Master The Good Cook Facebook Perfume Giver, deary what to forgive you did nothing wrong. Never. Instead I fortake the perfume loads you sent me. Daily please. I am planning to have a pool so I can dive morningly and nightly. Let's have breakfast now, my good friends must be equally fat, as me the fatso. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 8:21 AM

Ha ha ha ha Zubli!!! Now you're making me laugh at this ungodly hour...fatso it seems! Smlm LJ, now you buat I ROFL! Dah baca LJ's conversasi dengan I kat Pheeb's post? Ha ha ha kelakar! ;)

Nick Phillips (15/03/1967 - 04/11/2022) April 29, 2008 8:38 AM

Woohoo, Spiff's ad is here :D Thanks for having him here even though that bum doesn't deserve it ... LOL!

Unfortunately I can't really do any of the social spark assignments cos I do work for PayU2Blog and they forbid any of their members from doing any social spark assignments. They do give me a steady stream of assignments every week so I'm not going to defy them since I've made a good amount of money with them. Oh and they pay very fast too :)

But I'll still be messing around with the social spark networking section ... hehehe ...

Mariuca April 29, 2008 8:43 AM

Awww of course Spiff deserves to be here LOL! ;)

Oh yeah, LJ mentioned something about PayU not allowing SS assignments. Anyway, PayU doesn't seem to like my blog la Nick, rejeksi! :( But maybe that's good cause now I get to do SS assignments and some of them are really good! :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 8:52 AM

We are now BFF at SocialSpark. Thanks for searching me. See, Fatso, easy to find. Hehehehehehe! I am not able to find our friends there, because I do not know where the click button is. LOL!!! Okay, LJ ni capa? Lelaki ke perempuan?

Mariuca April 29, 2008 8:58 AM

Zubli! Kesian LJ, some more she gave u perfumes last night kat FB! ;) LJ is LadyJava, she's a wonderful friend. You must say hello to her blog ok? He he... Oh she has like 10 of them btw!

At SS, you can go through my list and see who you'd like to add. Just click on their avatar and add them! At first a bit confusing, but slowly you'll learn your way around SS like me.

Farah Deen April 29, 2008 9:04 AM

yeay!!! congratulations GP. You have written this beautifully, was wondering where you are taking me in the first paragraph. hmmm I would vote for you to win the best post blogger. (bonus?)

I hope you guys (you and everyone who's blog has been accepted) will sparkle with joy in this program. :)

p.s: GP, Natrah and me has been friends since boarding school, dari form 1 sampai form 5 until la masuk uni. it's more of family friend now, her family, her parents and mine. :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 9:07 AM

She did? I did not get em! Ooo, kalau Lady, perempuanlah dia ni kan? Err is she Javanese? I cannot say hello lah, I am a shy person. Tak ramai di sini yang faham jokes kita, nanti wonderful jadi powderful pulak, bak kata Janice Ng. Perlahan-lahan lah yer, bila tiba masa jadi kawanlah kami. Okay, I shall find common friends at SS. But, I want to say upfront, if not Fatsos I won't click. Please send them loads of food at facebook first. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 9:14 AM

Powderful Zubli? Ha ha ha!!! Ala, LJ is very friendly la! I kenal dia masa Magical Flying Carpet, terus become frens!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 9:17 AM

Yay! Thank you Farah, now I'm blushing very early in da morning lol!! :)

Ohhhh Natrah is a personal friend la..ha ha..silly me! Must visit her blog now that both you and LJ have mentioned her at your blogs.

It's always nice to see u here dear, have a great day!

Anonymous,  April 29, 2008 9:22 AM

Zoomed in on a rocket...I am still out and about in SocialSpark tonight and see that you are too, early in da morning.

Battling, battling, battling, thanks for your votes!

Mariuca April 29, 2008 9:32 AM

Trinity April 29, 2008 11:48 AM

MisterZyl April 29, 2008 12:30 PM

hi marzie.. i still didn't get any opportunity to do review on social spark even I have joined it for almost 2 or 3 weeks.

Mariuca April 29, 2008 5:37 PM

Hi Trin! SS is a whole lot of fun actually, give it a try some time! :)

Mariuca April 29, 2008 5:39 PM

Hi Faizal!! Oh me too, this one here was my first opp after almost 2 weeks. So don't give up, I'm sure you'll get an assignment soon. I'll find u at SS! :)

LadyJava April 29, 2008 7:01 PM

Roxy.. am hoping to get "full price" too.. here's hoping :)

Zubli!! You tak kenal sapa LJ??? Lol.. ish ish ish.. cedih I.. anyway.. Lady Java is an alive and kicking lady lahh.. Eh I requested to be friends with you semalam on FB... I can't send you perfumes if you dont approve me.. i nak bribe you ni...lolzz!! eh eh Malu lak...

Oh GP, you tak kenal Natrah eh.. she's coming over to KL this labour day and might meet me.. you game.. I nak ajak Emila ni once I confirm details :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 10:26 PM

Tunggu perfume pun belum dapat lagi, kena main Triumph neh, baru dapat wangian. Mojo dah tak larat makan dah, manyak sangat orang antau. Kuching makan mojo dak?

Gelombang Rakyat April 29, 2008 10:38 PM
