Get Paid for Social Networking With SideTick

You earn $1 for every friend you refer to SideTick, and the minimum payout is only $15. It's easy to hit the minimum payout each month if you log in daily and check your messages, as well as comment on Jenny's blog.

A Review of Patch.com

I recently started writing for Patch.com (late August/early September), and have to say that it has been a pleasant experience so far. While I won't disclose my rate per listing, I will say that I have already made $1728 this year, and will probably make about $3000 by the end of the year. Considering that I'm 9 months pregnant and not accepting as much work as I would like to, this is excellent money.

Why I Love Patch:

- Weekly payments (every Tuesday) via PayPal

- Friendly editors

- Excellent training- my orientation (held at a local library) was several hours long, and included my own detailed guide, which I referenced regularly when I first started writing for Patch

- Rewrite requests that make sense (as opposed to the vague requests other writers have reported receiving from certain sites)

If you're the type of person who likes to know exactly what is expected and required of you, you'll like being a writer for Patch.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

We just moved into our new apartment last weekend, so things have been hectic. I haven't forgotten about you guys, though. I'll update on my freelance writing income and monthly earnings soon.

IM Crew and an Update

My friend told me about a new site called IM Crew where you can make up to $1275 a month reading, rating, and promoting articles. It's still in the pre-launch period until the end of today, but I'm going to give it a try.

Click HERE if you want to join.

As for everything else, I haven't written any new articles lately. We're in the process of moving, and I won't have internet at home for 2 more weeks. Sigh.

If You Haven't Already Joined CashCrate...

now's the time!

CashCrate is a site that pays you to take surveys and complete offers. I've been a member for years. They send a check when you reach $20; I'm at $8.18 right now, with several offers pending.

Think You Need a High School Diploma to Get a Scholarship?

I published A List of GED Scholarships today. I have a GED, and I remember how everybody tried to convince me that I had no future. They were wrong. You can go to college with a GED, and you can get scholarships.

Monthly EHow Earnings

There's still about a week left of July, but I'm already pretty happy with my EHow earnings this month. I'm currently at $15.53. That might not sound like a lot, but keep in mind that I only have 29 articles posted on EHow, and haven't written a new article for them in months. This is all residual income, which I love.

I've made $126.27 in residual income for 2010 on EHow alone. If you aren't familiar with residual income, that means I earned $126.27 for work I already did months ago. I'm working hard to learn about back links, SEO, and Google AdSense so that I can apply this to the new articles I'm currently writing for HubPages.

Textbroker: I Won't Be Getting Paid This Month :(

Textbroker is a site that pays per word for the articles you write. They send a check twice a month if your account reaches $10. I have $9.98 right now. Boo. Oh well, at least I should make it next month.

How to Ripen an Avocado Fast

After a Google search, I decided it would be a brilliant idea to ripen an avocado in my microwave. It wasn't. Read all about it here.

I'm Writing Like Crazy Today!

I just wrote another article on HubPages. Here it is-How to Email a Thank You Letter After a Job Interview. I love productive days!

How to Get an Auto Loan With Bad Credit or No Credit: My Second HubPage

I'm on a writing kick again, and have found that HubPages is very easy to navigate. So far, I like it a lot.

Here's my second article, which I published this afternoon: How to Get an Auto Loan With Bad Credit or No Credit.


I've been tired of hearing about all the things pregnant women should avoid, so I posted a new blog on HubPages.

I have heard that some people make over $1000 a month on HubPages, and you can write about anything you want. This appeals to me, because sometimes I get bored with the restricted topics of other sites (which I don't talk about much on my blog).

My goal is to eventually make $500 a month in residual income from EHow, Epinions, HubPages, and a few other sites. I think it's attainable. Actually, I know it's attainable; anything is possible when you work from home.

I Forgot How Much I Missed Ebay.

I haven't sold anything on Ebay in awhile. I sold some scrubs recently, and now I have some makeup on there. I'm one of those people who is obsessive about checking their auctions. Sigh.

Anyway, if the links in this post don't take you to my auctions, search Sunnyglitter on Ebay. Thanks!

I'm Actively Looking...

for new freelance gigs.

I haven't written for EHow in awhile, and I've been kind of slacking on Epinions too. ReadBud ended up not being quite right for me; if you are making a lucrative income on the site, please share your story.

As some of you may remember, I'm also a brand ambassador/promotional model (if you're not sure what that is, feel free to check out one of my articles on the topic here). Summer is my busy season, and I've been working like crazy. However, now that I'm pregnant (SURPRISE!), it's getting harder to meet the demands of the promotional world. One company let me go after I announced my pregnancy, and while other companies were understanding, I have found that it is getting more difficult each day (physically) to work. Promotions can require you to be on your feet, in the sun or rain, for as long as 12 or 14 hours...all while keeping a smile on your face. I love promotions, but need to focus on other freelance gigs for now.

I'm interested in blogging for money, and will be applying to write for a few sites that caught my interest. I'll keep you all updated.

ReadBud Earnings for Yesterday

I'll update again later today, but I wanted to talk about ReadBud for a moment. ReadBud is a site that pays you to read and rate articles. The articles are short, and I read quickly, so this is a VERY easy way to make money. I made $1.34 rating 24 articles yesterday, and it only took me about 10 minutes. Yeah, that only averages out to about minimum wage...but if you're looking for a way to make money quickly and easily, I'd recommend ReadBud. You have to earn $50 to reach payout, but you can probably do that in about a month.

I'm Back to Working From Home and Doing Freelance Work Full-Time Again...

and I'm soooo happy!

Monday, I made the decision to leave my job as a Chiropractic Assistant. My boyfriend and I had fondly started referring to my boss as Dr. Douchebag, so I knew it was time to quit. I quit for several reasons, one of which was money.

Honestly, freelance work pays more than a regular job. This may not be true for everybody; however, it is true for me. Don't get me wrong; sometimes, finding freelance work is a job in itself. I'm okay with that, though...I like controlling my own income and hours. It gives me a sense of security (if you're a Monday through Friday, 8-5 person, you probably think I'm crazy).

Another reason I love to work from home? I see a significant decrease in my stress level. I'm happier, I'm a healthier, and I'm a better mom, girlfriend, and friend. I feel like I have more time, even though I put in just as many (if not more) hours per week.

I don't write for EHow as much as I used to (the whole switch to Demand Studios has been an adjustment for me, and it must have affected the site as a whole, because my earnings are at an all time low this month-only $8.31), but I have some articles that I need to transfer from my Mead notebook to my computer. I've rediscovered ChaCha, and I still love being a Title QA for Demand Studios. I'm also trying a few new sites out (Squidoo, Break Studios, Weegy, and People String), so I will let you know if they prove to be lucrative.

Sorry I was gone for like 6 months...things have been hectic. I'm back though, and I look forward to keeping you all updated on how to make money working from home. Take Care!
