LogBud.com is a great way to share your content, meet others, and make
money. Want to get started? Here's what you need to do to get
involved:Step 1: Join
While we allow anyone to read logs (articles) on our site, in
order to contribute we need you to sign up (so we know who to share the
revenue with). You can join here for free
. Sign up, click the activation link that you'll receive in your e-mail, and you will be ready to go.Step 2: Set Up Your Profile
order to connect with others, you need to tell them a little bit about
who you are. At the top of the site, click "My Account" then click
"Edit Profile" (or you can just click here to edit your profile). Here
you'll be able to upload an avatar, which is just a small picture (make
sure it's appropriate). Then, add in your location (city or state, so
you can connect with people near you). Add a brief description about
yourself, whatever you'd like people to know.
Lastly, and most
importantly (if you want to get paid), you need to add in your Google
Adsense publisher ID (ie: "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"). [Read below to learn
how to get a Google Adsense account]. That way, we'll be able to rotate
your ads into the articles properly so that you are paid out directly to
your Google Adsense account when people click on the ads.Step 3: Create Logs
Logs are simply articles on about whatever topic you choose that you publish on LogBud.com.
What is a good log?
- Original content. We do not want something that has been posted else.
- Informative. While we want you to write about stuff you're
passionate about, there is a subtle difference between a "log" and a
"blog". Sorry, we don't want to hear about what you had for lunch, or
your annoying coworker. You could write a review of the place you ate
your lunch, or a helpful article about how to be a good co-worker.
Channel your passions and thoughts into an informative article.
- In English. While we will definitely embrace users from all
countries, we do not have the infrastructure to monitor content in other
Ultimately, quality logs will gain popularity within the community of
LogBud.com users, as well as on the search engines because other
websites will want to link to your well-written logs. That will draw
traffic, and that is what will help you to make money. Speaking of
money…Step 4: Start Earning Money

want to connect with another LogBud.com user, you can still follow and
see when they submit new logs!
Another great way to engage with
other users is through our comment system. If you like a log or want
further information about a subject that a log was written on, then
leave the author a comment, I am sure they would love to hear from you!

of the world. At the top of the log, just click the "Share" button, and
you can e-mail, print, or submit the current log to over 300 different
