Now, it's time to know how you can convert your Linden Dollars to US Dollars $. This is why there are company owners in SL like Anshe Chung makes the virtual world their career. However, you should have at least a PayPal account so you can transfer money from these sites below directly to your paypal.
These sites is where you can sell your L$ to real US$.
Second Life's Linden Dollar Exchange
The LindeX is a Linden Dollar exchange offering residents of Second Life the ability to either buy or sell Linden Dollars. Charges are for purchasing Linden Dollars and are placed on the same form of payment you have setup in your account settings for your Second Life account. If you have a credit on your US$ account balance that credit will be applied first. Prices at this site are set by the market price - I.E. the best price offered by the different sellers of Linden Dollars.
Yes, the rumours are true. Second Life merchants can now sign up for an account with WIC Exchange. Although development is still is progress for this new feature, WIC Exchange is currently writing the nescessary LSL to enable merchants from within Second Life access to our private secure gateway. The rules are changing. This is your chance to let your Second Life avatar step out into the real world once in a while to conduct business, whilst retaining the annonymity of your Second Life agreement. Merchants must register with a current Second Life registered avatar. Those merchants found to be conducting business with an incorrect, or invalid avatar name will be suspended.
PS: If you have nothing to sell or is just starting your Second Life, you may visit the free linden dollars page for networks, offers and surveys that will make you earn free lindens.
After being closed for almost a week, WSE is now back and ready to continue operations as Second Life's biggest Securities Exchange. Yesterday, July 27, 2007 WSE announced the release of WSE 3.0 that includes enhanced security features such as 256-bit SSL encryption, Risk API for Second Life residents along with the ability for general Internet users with a browser to trade on the World Stock Exchange using the World Internet Currency.
The World Internet Currency acts as a fictional currency bridging the gap between the real and virtual worlds. This will encourage growth in the virtual economies around the world especially in Second Life while providing the everyday Internet users with the ability to LEARN - HAVE FUN AND PROFIT. WIC is where you can sell your linden dollars to real money (US dollars) through PayPal.
People panicked over the week fearing that WSE will close down and take away all their valuable money that they worked hard. Hey! Now that it's back it's time to trade and earn more linden dollars! Happy Trading!

Today, July 28 is the Annual SL Relay For Life. A 24 hrs walkathon on a big part of the grid, for survivors of cancer, their family , friends and basically everyone who cares.
So since that I, Chino Yray or Chino Yalin (SL name), have been earning free lindens for a month now, there's no reason for me not to give part of what I earn for good cause. Of course, it is only made possible because of earning L$1000 linden dollars a day and earning more than L$10,000 linden dollars per month.
I found recently in this Fashion blog I frequent that two of Cynara's favorite designers will be designing limited edition outfits for SLRFL'07 (Sold only on this day) and as a donation and also as a gift for my darling, I bought her Mara in Champagne (image on left). This gift is also a surprise for her since I'm the one using her avatar when I took this shot.
Nicky Ree's Mara in Champagne is really fabulous and I bet my darling will love it.
Shai Delacroix made an outfit for men as well but with the lace, color and that "feature-in-the-back-of-the-outfit", I decided I will just donate the money directly to SLRFL on their sim. No offense to Shai but I want something I can wear on different occassions. Peace! :)
You too can participate in this whole day event and please do. Every dollar you raise makes a difference to people in your community whose lives are touched by cancer. Even Linden Dollars.

Two days ago, I launched the L$5000 linden dollar blog contest and I want to give thanks to those who submitted their entries. However, there are people who were not able to send me an email. This is for the reason that my contact page doesn't work well with IE7.
So how to know that you sent me a successful email?
After you fill up the information and hit the "send message", a successful contact will prompt the message
"Thank you for sending me a message. I will get back to you as soon as possible."
As for the IE7 problem, please get firefox for better browsing.
After playing Second Life for 4 months now (I started April 1, 2007) it is not hard to understand that in order to enjoy this virtual world or to look good at least, you must have Linden Dollars. We all know it's not easy to earn linden dollars. Well, that is only if you don't know where to get them or where you can earn. I researched and look for networks, sims, offerings for free lindens and now that it's paying the bills (yes, free linden dollars all over SL can be a career! DUH! LOL). Thus, the list where you can earn linden dollars.
So looking good in SL is not easy and not just something anyone can do (unless you have all the money you can spend for clothes and stuff). I even found an SL public drama where those not-so-lucky avatars release their frustrations for not being "good-looking-enough".
What I would like to show is, how free lindens change the way my avatar looks from newbie to model.
This very first pic on the left was taken some time in April or May 2007. I thought back then that having a good hair and presentable outfit is enough to look good. I got my money to buy those stuff from camping, creating an extra female avatar for escort service (AH HA! Isn't it obvious? There might be escorts out there that are male RL. mwahaha) Yes, I did even created a female account just to make money in Second Life.
So this is how I look before. Even though there are already some who thought I'm cute, it's just because of how Cynara (my girlfriend RL) molded my shape. Thanks to her, I don't look a little newbie back then. Also, she's the one working that time and I'm just a bum avatar. LOL
The next picture below is how I look right now (taken yesterday and earlier) and it's because of earning free linden dollars everyday.
The picture on the left was taken yesterday. No photoshop processing except for the name Chino Yalin and I'm not pulling your leg. This shot was taken using a Photosphere, a studio that you can buy in SL for L$1500 and it only has 10 prims.
What I'm wearing here is the "Philanderer" outfit and leather bracelet by Ginny Talamasca - Last Call and again, my hair is called Rumor by FNKY! and my skin is the very common Antonio skin, FNKY too. I received emails asking where I got my shape, but unfortunately, this shape is made by Cynara Cortes and my wife is not selling it. I won't sell it either. (the reason why most of the time, I'm the one using her Avatar and her using Chino Yalin.)
The pose I used here is from Happy Delight. It's just L$15 which is very cheap for such a fun pose.
In this picture, the only photoshop edit I did is the "render light" filter, to give a shadow on that lower right corner, and of course, the Chino Yalin name.
You see, I cannot look this good without Linden Dollars. That's a FACT in our Second Life. No money = nothing to buy. Nothing to buy = you look newbie. And we all know that no one wants to have sex with a noob!
That's why I'm giving away L$5000 linden dollars for free for the month of August and continue to list down places and networks where you can earn free linden dollars. I hope that at least I can be of help for you to have a better Second Life and have a good looking avatar as well.
Have a beautiful Second Life!

The initial L$250 is good. However, I don't know how much they pay per research they give out unlike First Opinions Panel that gives a sure L$500 to L$1000 linden dollars per survey. What I'm very sure is, they give an instant L$250 for just joining their research panel!
Their site also gives a brief and suffice description on what they do but I recommend visiting it from the "join" button that you will find on their lobby. Once you clicked the "join" button, you'll be redirected to their registration page and will allow you to fill up certain categories that you want to be part of the research panel and answer some simple questions like SL Avatar details.
For more networks and offers that gives free lindens go here.
2. Visit the Linden Dollars page! The linden dollars page is a list of those networks and offerings found in Second Life that doesn't require you to camp, be an escort or take your time just to earn lindens. Go to the Linden Dollars page!
3. Click on the links! Simply click on a link there at the linden dollar page. This will send you to the registration page, survey, terms of conditions of the different companies that offers to give us free linden dollars.
4. Read them and follow instructions! This stuff is easy and simple. Some will just ask for your opinion, some will just let you register, some will let you fill some offerings. In the end, everything pays money and bigger money than any camping can give.
5. Enjoy your linden dollars! Once completed, these companies and offers will pay you! Yes! Some will take 24 hours for them to verify, some will pay you instantly and some will just let you earn linden dollars even you are sleeping, away from your computer or doing something else in-real-life.
6. Have a fun and enjoyable Second Life! SL is not fun without linden dollars and that's a fact we all know. So have fun!
The company that enables Second Life players to earn linden dollars through survey invited me last night to attend a meeting with a representative from a BIG company (company name cannot be disclosed yet). This company wants their business to have a presence in the virtual world and they tied up with FOP for a research to know if they can expand from RL to SL and enable more interactivity for their business.
This is a good news as well for First Opinions Panel members for it means... NEW SURVEY TO FILL UP! We all know too that if there's a new survey to fill-up, there will be new L$500 to L$1000 linden dollars to earn for free!
So I'm encouraging FOP members to check their email for an update from the research company and those who are not yet members to take advantage of this coming opportunity. But wait! There's MORE! First Opinions Panel are inviting people all over the world and especially Chinese (remember last time, they want more Hispanic Americans). There will be an upcoming surveys specifically for Chinese in the coming months and of course the new survey from Fortune 500 companies who wants their business to be in SL for international members.
Don't miss the chance to earn L$500 to L$1000 linden dollars just for filling up a survey and make your Second Life a lot happier!

Faces of Asia... aah the fame and fortune that you will get for just being a good looking asian avatar. However, this contest, calling asian looking hotties is something that I cannot be part of anymore nor even try my luck for it. It's because the submission for entries closed last month, June 27, and I only found out about the contest last wednesday (too bad for me). That's a chance to earn L$10,000 linden dollars!
I could've been the 4th Filipino to be joining the contest, if ever. (LOL, I wish!) I heard that popular Sylar Boyd, one of the popular Filipino in Second Life, is in the contest. Our friend Rodion of Avatrian Central in Second Life, who's also a Filipino living in Cebu city told me there are 3, so I wonder who the other two are.
In addition, I think Filipinos will conquer SL as well. mwahahaha! Lucas Lameth and Shai Delacroix, two of the most popular designers in SL are Filipinos and I am so proud to know that there are Filipinos out there who are BIG TIME in the virtual world. Not to mention, the two are also part of the 5 people from Asian Design Summit Team that will be judging who will become the top most male and female avatar in the Faces of Asia.
Anyway, on the left is a picture of me. Taken from a self-made studio in our house. The outfit is 'Adulterer' from Casa Del Shai, gloves and bracelet are from Last Call (they're not available anymore), I'm wearing a black shoes from Shiny Things but it's not shown in the picture.
Most of all, I wont be able to look like that if I didn't have the money to buy the skin, hair, clothes. (my shape is made by Cynara Cortes, she's such a good shape maker.) So to know where YOU can get free linden dollars and make money in Second Life as well, try visiting my free lindens page.

I wasn't able to make a report last week for I was sick and totally forgotten that I should give a weekly report every week.
It has been 4 weeks now since I began this quest to earn free lindens. In short, A MONTH. So now, here it is.
Total earnings for week 3 is L$9,460 linden dollars. Yep! I am earning now more than 1000L$ daily and the 3rd week is not that expensive for us. We managed to budget our money because Cynara and I are aiming to buy a L$50,000 house and move to a less laggy sim.
For week 4, our earnings is a big L$12,100 linden dollars. I was shocked! The First Opinions Panel referrals and Earn2Life referral pay for me has boosted 100% more! The moment FOP paid me L$2900 just for one day, I jumped off my chair and just jump and jump over the excitement.
Go to this page for information on how can you earn L$1000 linden dollars daily from Earn2Life?
Second Life is now becoming a job that pays the bills! WooooT!

After earning free lindens, it's just common sense that you have to spend money or put it somewhere where you can earn more. For now, let's just say you'll be spending your free linden dollars.
Weeks ago, Cynara and I received an invitation for a Grand Ball Opening of Kidd Island. To our surprise, it will be a masquerade ball. So we have lots of problem! 1 is to get formal clothes that will fit for the medieval period and celtic. 2nd, we should have our own masks from Illusions (a mask store). 3rd we lack funds to look so good.
We filled up offers that gives free lindens so we can raise the money. Thanks to earn2life, we got ourselves a mask for the two of us. However, the mask is not enough, we still need good clothes. We wander and searched for the high quality and clothes with better textures rather than just settling for something that just looks good. Cynara advised me, "better and high quality textures first." Not bad actually, thinking I got myself a Dhampir Rider outfit from B@REROSE and Cynara got a good dress namely "Josephine" by Ginny Talamasca, Last Call.
After getting a mask and a costume, we searched for good hair, luckily the hair that will fit the theme and will look good on me can also be found at Illusions. There's less hassle for us after that since we only need Cynara's hair.
We got them all in the end. Cynara and I were ready to go to the ball. The skins, clothes, shoes, accessories and hair really compliments one another. If I didn't have the opportunity to earn free lindens, we would not be able to get ourselves a decent costume in the first place.
Anyway, all in all this is how we look in the end:
Looking good will always be a good investment in Second Life.

We all know that you can earn 1000L$ daily with Earn2Life. BUT! Do you know that you can also earn more linden dollars than that for FREE and even while you are sleeping!? I?m not even trying to pull your leg silly!
Earn2Life gives a referral commission which means they pay you lindens because of a player you invited!
HOW does it work?
The referral compensation plan is shown in the chart below:
If you refer just 3 people and each of your direct and indirect referrals also refers an average of 3 people, you will end up with 363 referrals in your downline. And if they all complete at least 10 offers a day each, your daily earnings will be at least US L$3 345.
How much money will I be earning per day if I refer 5 people and each of my direct and indirect referrals will refer 5 people each on the average and if all my referrals will complete an average of 20 offers a day?
Result: at least L$71 000.00
So what are you waiting for? If you haven?t joined Earn2Life yet, it?s your time to earn 1000L$ daily and even more because of their referral commission!
Join Earn2Life NOW here.
For those who don?t know yet, First Opinions Panel, is a research group in SL that pays L$500 to L$1000 linden dollars for filling up a survey. HOWEVER!
Do you know that FOP also will pay you if you are able to invite a friend to join? And this is the reason why I got to earn free linden dollars even while I am sleeping and in my bed when I was sick.
1. Sign-up to First Opinions Panel for you to earn L$500 to L$1000 per survey.
2. You?ll get an email confirmation that you have joined FOP.
3. Check your email. It will say there that they pay L$100 linden dollars for every person you invite.
4. Do the instruction on the confirmation email and they will reply for you to be able to earn L$100 linden dollars for every friend you invite to join FOP.
5. HAPPY EARNINGS!
That is what happened to me. Those whom I invited decided to join and voila! Lindens for free!

It?s now the Second week since I started this goal of earning free linden dollars in Second Life.
So for the earnings report.
This week, Cynara and I bought a lot of clothes since I?m earning a regular 600L$ to 1200L$ per day. One of the most expensives are the clothes from ?Casa Del Shai?. I bought 3 sets of clothes and Cynara bought one very expensive Filipiniana costume there. (Of course, I pay for Cynara?s expenses she?s my girlfriend and I?m the one earning free lindens like there?s no tomorrow.)
The clothes from Casa Del Shai is worth 2,600L$ linden dollars all in all. These are ?The Adulterer?, ?Poco?, ?Mandarin Collar Barong? and the ?Mestiza? for Cynara.
However, that?s not the only stuff we bought this week. If I have good clothes, I still need good quality shoes! So we bought shoes from ?Shiny Things?. One black leather shoes, two casual shoes for men and one very good looking heels for my darling. So all in all, the shoes cost us 1,200L$ lindens.
But do not think I just earned 3,800L$ linden dollars for free for I still bought a lovescene ball from Bits and Bob worth 450L$, an armor from DE Designs worth 500L$, a set of boots to match the armor worth 250L$ and paid the weekly rental for our house worth 250L$ a week.
Now that?s a total of 5,250L$ LINDEN DOLLARS! and all of them I got for free!
BUT WAIT! THERE?S MORE!
On July 14, Cynara and I will have to attend a masquerade ball. In order for us to look appropriate, beautiful and handsome aristocrats for the ball, we have to get ourselves some nice hair, gown, boots, shoes, fan, cane and most of all, MASKS.
Cynara bought for her Masquerade costume:
Josephine gown from Last Call - 450L$
Silver hair to match the gown - 175L$
Fan from prim & proper - 50L$
Mask from illusions - (I wont add the price for the mask to the total earnings since she got it from working for an hour in SL - 100L$)
For my Masquerade costume:
Dauphin hair from Illusions - 125L$
Phantom of Opera Mask - 125L$
Casanova Mask & cape - 250L$
Cavalier boots - 250L$
Cane - 100L$
Therefore, our masquerade costumes are worth 1,525L$. That?s a total of 6,775L$ now. However, we bought new hair as well just for an extra. So that?s another 500L$ (male hair from naughty designs 300L$ and female hair 200L$ from ETD designs)
A whopping 7,275L$ expenditure for 1 week! LOL We?ve become shoppaholics because of earning free lindens! Although, I almost forgot to say? Last week, my ginkofinancial money is only 10,600L$ but now, it?s 13,518L$! So I still save 2900L$ linden dollars that I got for free!
That?s a total of 10,175L$ earning for the second week and for the whole 2 weeks since I started this Earn Free Lindens goal.. I?ve earned a total of 20,775L$ for just 2 weeks and all of them for FREE! (that is if we have not spent them to clothes and other stuff)
For the list of where you can earn and make free linden dollars in Second Life, go to this page.
Oh! I almost totally forgot! Cynara also bought a new casual wear for her. ?Achlys? from Last call which is worth 250L$. So all in all, 21,025L$!!!!!!
