Moshi Monster is a free online game which brings a virtual world where in you can adopt a pet.

Moshi Monsters was released in 2007 by the British firm Mind Games. Like Club Penguin, Moshi Monsters caters to a young audience. (8-12 year olds are the target) Like many other web based games, Moshi Monsters is a mix between a social network and an online game.

Each Monster has a lively personality that develops the more it is played with. Monster owners can nurture their pet by solving daily puzzle games to earn Rox, the in-game currency.

Rox can be used to buy weird and wonderful things in the virtual shop to keep Monsters healthy and happy. Monster owners can make new friends and connect with existing friends through a wide variety of safe social networking features such as Monster blogs, Newsfeeds, pinboards and buddy lists.

The best thing is that while your child enjoys playing Moshi Monster they also learn.  How does this happen?  Every day your child's monster will create a series of fun puzzles that test everything from vocabulary and arithmetic to logic and spatial skills. The better your child does at these puzzles, the more Rox they'll earn to buy cool things for their monster. The difficulty level of the puzzles automatically calibrates each day, so puzzles get harder if they are doing well, and easier if they are struggling.

Your child has plenty of opportunity to learn new vocabularies too, Moshi Monsters love words and communicate with their monster owners regularly via speech bubbles, to encourage reading. Their moods are visually represented and also expressed by a word.

Isn't it great? Your child plays and learns at the same time

Earn Money as a Graphic Artist

Nikon D3X Camera

Are you a graphic artist or even a photographer? Did you know that you can sell your works and earn money online by simply submitting your works on some site? You can also earn not by just blogging for money, you can also earn passive income by selling your graphics. Here are some sites where you can earn money from selling your digital works or photos. Currently I've posted 11 sites wherein you can sell your works.

start uploading your photos at iStockphoto
iStockphoto is probably the largest and most popular place to buy images and photos online. As a seller you can create an account and apply to be a contributor. Once you’re approved you’ll be able to upload your work and earn a base commission of 20% on anything sold, and exclusive providers earn up to 40%. iStockphoto offers buyers the option to pay for files individually or to become a subscriber, so there is a little bit more to the commission structure of the sellers than just a simple percentage. For more details, see their page with details on the program.

Vector Stock

Vector Stock is a good option for graphic designers because the focus of the site is vectors, not photos. To sell your work you can sign up for an account. Once you’re logged in you’ll have the option to request contributor status. If you visit their FAQ you’ll find some more information on selling your work. The payout is 25%, or 30% if you supply images for Vector Stock exclusively. You can potentially earn up to 50% with their accelerated payment structure for artists who have had a high number of downloads.

Graphic Leftovers

Graphic Leftovers is a new site with the purpose of allowing designers the opportunity to sell their unused work. If you are used to doing client work, the stuff that the client doesn’t want can be sold at Graphic Leftovers. They have icons, illustrations, and even some website templates for sale. Regardless of how much you sell, you’ll earn 52% commission. You can get more details about selling your work at Graphic Leftovers.

start uploading your photos at crestock
Crestock is another popular option for buying and selling stock photography and images. Their site does not offer details on payment structure or commissions (at least not that I could find), although there is an option toapply to become a seller.

Shutterstock only sells photos and images by subscription, not on an individual basis. As a seller, you’ll get paid $0.25 every time one of your images is downloaded.
