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!
