ChaCha, what it is and why you should do it. Ok obviousely most of you know about the dance 1,2, cha cha cha. But have you heard about ChaCha the mobile answering service?

Probably not and I say that because I had never heard of it until a friend told me so I will give you an overview. Let’s say you are sitting in your living room and you are thinking to yourself “self, I wonder what the capital of Croatia is?” now what do you do. You have a few options for sure.

You can dust off your old encyclopedia, flip through the pages hoping to find the answer and also hoping that it is still correct after all the changes in the world since you bought it however many years ago. You can get out the trusty computer and scour the internet in search of a fact based website to find the answer. Or you and just grab your cell phone and either call or text your question to a guide who will find the answer from a reputable source and text it right back to you. In a few minutes your phone will beep alerting you that you have a new text message “Zagreb (who in 1994 celebrated its 900th birthday) is the capital city of Croatia.”

You don’t have to do anything but ask and the answer will be delivered to you also if you would like to see where the guide found this information you can go to chacha.com and log into the chacha account for your cell phone. This is where you can see all the activity related to your phone and see the source pages for the answers that were sent to you.

Now, why am I telling you this? There are two main reasons

1. A few weeks ago I became a ChaCha guide, I am loving it, I have learned so many new things and I can answer questions any time of the day or night from my laptop plus putting a few extra dollars in my pocket always gets two thumbs up. And

2. It is fun. It sounds like fun doesn’t it? Go ahead and try it, I know you want to, you know you want to so think up a question, any question there is nothing too ordinary or too wild, nothing too gross or too easy ask anything your heart desires, anything that comes into your head.

Text your question to 242242.

Remember though ChaCha is free, check your cell phone plan for your text messaging fees.

Hey there. I just ran across your blog while Googling ChaCha. I'm a Guide, too, and I love it. What a great little service for people and a great way to make some money! I just started a blog hippiemoney.blogspot.com for recording all my fun with ChaCha. I want to tell everyone about ChaCha, because it's been such a great find for me. Anyway, hi from another Guide! :-)
