Constant Updating

One big negative about running a credit card review site is the constant monitoring you have to do for interest rates and credit card terms. I know many APR are based off the prime rate but even when the prime rate doesn't change a credit card will change it's interest rate.

I'm sure there is a way I could automate all this, but I just don't know how to do that and don't want to hire someone when I'm not making that much money from it.

For instance it seems like the Meijer Mastercard raises or lowers it's apr every three months. I don't think this is very typical but I could be wrong.

Also it doesn't seem like the Disney card has many changes but I dunno.

Maybe I am just frustrated from my recent traffic fluctuations.

Writing Reviews

I've been writing credit card reviews on Squidoo, just to see how much traffic I can get and how much money I can make with them. At first it was pretty easy writing about personal finance topics, and I was getting a little bit of traffic maybe a couple hits a day. I didn't really that much money from Squidoo though. I don't know maybe I didn't really try that hard.
