    Hey Folks,

    Yesterday I had my first success with my blog.
    the url is tv.blogfreestuff.info .
    I used a clip from the mtv movie awards (The Brüno landing on eminem thing) and made 25$ from it.
    However now I need to find a way to find recent events (Caught on video) THat a lot of people want to see and search for.

    So is there any good way to get those ?

    Thanks for your time, Ruler0fAll

    You just gotta keep your ear to the streets and wait until something outrageous happens that the media jumps on. You can try gossip websites like wwtdd.com and gawker.com to try and find recent events that have people talking. Hope this helps. :)

    Exactly. This method will definately pay, but it takes a lot of effort to keep your finger on the pulse of popularity and consitently post the next 'big thing'. Its possible though, you would just want to make sure that you are making heaps off each click, and scale it as much as possible to have heaps of traffic.

    Use the gossip sites as someone said and also visit celibrety forums. Also watch live tv and you can find out breaking news.

    Twitter is a great way to find out the latest going-ons, I found out about the MTV video from Twitter, so check that out, you could also simply follow news websites on Twitter so you have the latest news while your online.

    I'm already checking TPB top 100 movies/series, Twitter Hot Topics Thingie, Google Trends, Lycos Entertainment News and Yahoo Buzz.
    I'm also currently using **************, However they shave way too much. only 1-4% of my clicks convert.
