I’m gonna go ahead and recommend money-making apps, because I’ve tried a bunch of them and some are better than others.
AppTrailers is the most impressive thus far, even though I’ve only been using it a short time. It has the lowest cash-out rate I’ve ever seen, so I’ve already been able to transfer money to my Paypal account. Twice. It was $.50 each time, but that’s still notable because most apps don’t let you cash out until you earn $10 or more, and that can take ages because most of those apps operate on a point system. You’re not earning money, you’re earning points you trade in for cash. Even though AppTrailers operates on this system, it’s pretty easy to earn–I like to just turn the sound off and watch the ads while I’m doing something else. Even the low earners give you 5 points per watch, which is a jump on the 1 point that seems to be customary. I’m used to not being able to earn a lot because I don’t have many people to refer, but this one works for me. You don’t have to earn big to cash out, and that means it’s becoming one of my go-tos.
Google Opinion Rewards is honestly one of the best, and it doesn’t even give you ‘real’ cash. It gives you credit to buy things on GooglePlay, which is great for me because I sometimes like to buy stuff in the games I play. If you don’t have any reason to use GP, this app isn’t for you; I say it’s the best because I’m used to not getting very many survey opportunities and this app gives me a new survey pretty much every week–often more than once a week. I’ve been using it since November, and I’ve already earned $22–that’s kind of a lot for a money-making app. It may not put any cash in your pocket, but it’ll let you buy things without actually spending your hard-earned cash. *cough*attackonlight*cough*
Fronto is a… decent… app. I realize that’s not a glowing assessment, and that’s because I’m still assessing different lockscreen apps. It took me months to cash out with $10, but the fact that it pops up on your phone every time you unlock it makes you feel like you’re actually doing something semi-productive with your time, even if it’s not worth much. I got paid. Real money. And I didn’t even have to go out of my way to do it.
OnGo surveys is alright. At first the amount of surveys was semi-comparable to Opinion Rewards, but these days I rarely receive any notifications at all. The cashout llevel is $10, and I’ve been stuck at $7 for a while, but I’d still recommend this app because the surveys and easy, quick, and give you several cents rather than several points. They just updated the app, so I may need to revamp my assessment in the future.
Survey.com is similar to Ongo surveys, only slightly worse. Both are still sending me surveys, but it’s slow going. It has a minimum cashout level of $7.50, and I currently have $2.50. I’m only recommending it because it’s easy, it notifies you when a survey is available, it uses cash instead of points, and if you’re not lazy you can occasionaly get location-based surveys that offer more moolah. Neither this nor Ongo offer any survey rewards.
I made this post because I’ve tried apps like Fronto and Cashpirate, but they don’t really work for me. I don’t think the points you earn are worth the amount of data you have to download–my wifi is spotty, so I end up going over my data plan before I even earn anything–and, because they rely so heavily on things like apps and references, I was never able to actually get paid. Most of the apps I’ve listed here will notify you about chances to earn more money, and I just find them easier to use. Referrals are still the best way to earn points, though, so if you use toreo2 for Fronto and AppTrailers it would really help me out. General tip for everyone, even if you’re not planning on doing this–if your friends are into survey apps, joining and using their code will help them earn money, even if you never use it afterwards. That’s why you may see some people asking over and over.
Some people get paid to write articles like these. I need to figure out how to do that.
I know things are terrible right now but take a look at my cat. She’s fine. She’s content. She doesn’t even know what a President is. All she’s worried about is when I’ll give her breakfast and whether the bed or the sofa is the better sleeping option. No matter what happens all is well in the world of my cat. Even if the world goes to hell, she is happy.
In her original post, she noticed that it looks like a young red driving the town car that Kate is in the back of… notice the sideburns and greenish eyes. we also only see part of his face, as usual:
here’s now MORE evidence to back up her claim…
we see the car parked in front of the house several times throughout the show, including when the police are there after masha is kidnapped.
a man is then IMMEDIATELY seen inside the foyer, holding a framed photo of masha. it appears to be a man’s hand by the look of the nails. it also can’t be kate, as she’s obviously still approaching the house, or katerina, as she is upstairs packing in the bedroom. kirk is not at the house at this time, and if it was an officer, why not simply show the man?
and remember, red said at the beginning of season 4 that he is familiar with the “summer palace.”
OUR red is also familiar with the apparent comings and goings of kirk, knowing exactly when he was at the “summer palace.” red tells kirk, “she [masha] lived at your house, as your daughter, on and off for four years. sometimes you were there, sometimes you weren’t.” how would red know that, unless he was there as well?
this mysterious figure then walks away as kate is approaching the front entrance. he takes the photo with him. kate never sees him.
now we know by red’s own words to lizzie in “luther braxton part 2″ that he was there the night of the fire WITH katerina to retrieve the fulcrum.
(and red obviously can’t be the real raymond reddington as he has already kidnapped masha and the fulcrum and gone to america).
katerina tells kate that she knows raymond took masha to america, and now that’s where she’s going. she says she’ll deal with it herself… but she probably took OUR red with her (who more than likely worked for her to spy on her).
we also learn in this episode that sam was the ONLY person who knew BOTH katerina and raymond reddington. so if sam duped kate by introducing her to a doppleganger version of raymond (which i believe he did), kate would have no way of knowing OUR red wasn’t the original raymond reddington.
this idea makes perfect sense when we look back at “general ludd” when sam is dying. he tells red, “i need to tell lizzie.” red replies, “no.” sam argued, “i KNOW WHAT WE AGREED… but before i go, i have to tell her.” red says, “i can’t let you do that.” sam again argues, “she deserves to know the truth.”
so sam is definitely in on some kind of con with OUR red. it is very possible that that con stem back to when he duped kate all those years ago about red’s real identity.
kate said she never met raymond in person before. she even says as much to OUR red upon meeting him.
but here’s the kicker… red tells kate that she probably knows him better than she realizes. (she probably just never paid close enough attention and didn’t recognize him). if red was the family driver for katerina, kate probably saw him daily but never put two and two together. he was right in front of her the whole time.
lastly, we may have been given an easter egg by tptb when katerina explains the job to kate. she tells kate that when she is around, kate’s only job is to observe how things are done, (in order to keep consistency when katerina isn’t there).
but what if this also means maybe OUR red was there undercover to observe and spy on katerina for the us?
what better way to observe katerina than by being a driver/bodyguard/etc for the family?
the best part? are the comments on the show in the past about people never having seen red drive before. talk about ironic, lol.
@red-is-the-new-blackington also caught this little nugget in ‘Cape May’ when Katerina and Red are loading the body into the back of the Range Rover… Red immediately offers up, “I’ll drive.”
with @red-is-the-new-blackington‘s permission, i’m going to add this to my “imposter red theory post” with credit because there is absolutely NO WAY this isn’t correct imo.
i’m so excited that more people are now jumping on that theory!!!

I’ve discovered that one difference between passage-making on a sailboat and on a powerboat is that on a powerboat there’s more time for sightseeing. Today the wind was light and southwesterly, which was ideal for the longest leg of our trip.
There was so much to see! Images above:
- The fog lifting to reveal Point Sur.
- A flyby by a black-footed albatross off Cypress Point. I saw more albatrosses today than I’d previously seen in my entire life. They’re amazing!
- A badly framed shot of a humpbacked whale sounding. There were humpbacks everywhere.
- The huge flock of sooty shearwaters we plowed through in Monterey Bay. We also saw pink-footed shearwaters, rhinoceros auklets, common murres, red-necked phalaropes, some kind of murrelet, pigeon gulliemots, Forster’s terns, western gulls… The birdy highlight for me, though, were the aforementioned albatrosses.
- My dad steering us into the anchorage in Santa Cruz.
- The view of the pier IRL.
- The view of the pier in pgo. Ahhhh! There are raids happening right now just a few yards away!
It’s okay. I can wait. The plan for tomorrow is another crack-of-dawn departure and the final leg of our trip.
