June has been verrrrry slow so far

.
It’s the 13th of June and to date, I’ve only made just over $30.00.

Not good.

Huge reason why: Losing the proofreading gig (the site shut down last month).

I did have a handful of new clients after the site closed, but they’ve been very quiet this month. I’ve also had a few potentials, but most are yet to follow through.

I haven’t been as proactive as I could be in the gig-searching department; I hold my hands up to that.

There’s an online tutoring opportunity I applied for, so fingers crossed, I get it.

I’m also looking at Appen for more work. I get the odd job from them from time to time, but I’m aware they have more regular work, so I’ve reached out. Hopefully, something good will come of it.

Also posted my proofreading service in a few Facebook groups.

Weird month for earning so far. And also quite boring.

.
Will be more active in looking for work.

Update: How I’m Doing This Month In Ze Money-Online Department

.
Wanted to post an update over a week ago, but put in the wrong password and locked myself out of my blog!

Ho hum.

Anyway, I’m baa-aaack!

.
In terms of making more than I did last month, I’m doing pretty good. By around mid-month, I’d surpassed last month’s earnings which I’m pweesed about. I’m at $255 at the mo’, $50 more than I made the previous month.

And there are still 10 days of the month to go. 🙂

.
What’s responsible for how I’m doing this month:

 – Keeping some kind of pace with the proofreading.

 – Getting a new gig (various short tasks).

 – Pushing myself a bit more.

.
I’ve had more commitments since early last month, plus my sleeping pattern’s been wack, so I’m quite happy to be making more despite those factors.

.
Here’s to the rest of the month. Would like to finish at $400…because why the hell not? 🙂

May Update…

Well, I’ve almost reached the amount I made in April (at $129.48 at the mo’), and I’m confident I’ll surpass it. By how much, I don’t know.


Testing…

Really happy about a testing gig I got in March. It’s with a site called uTest. It’s like crowd-tasking where you get lots of people working through various jobs, except in this case, it’s testing (sites/apps, etc). / Got my first bit of work with them this month. Keen on the income potential, flexibility and experience. Looking forward to hopefully getting more opportunities.

I also joined another crowd-testing site called MyCrowd.

 

Proofreading…

I’m still proofreading, but doing the shift work on a one-week-on-and-one-week-off basis has fallen by the wayside this month. I don’t think I wanna do the shifts at all anymore. I might change my mind next month. And change it back again. And that’s OK. 🙂

For now, I just proof work on the site when I want, as & when it comes in, and cash out when I hit the minimum $5.00. I might make less than when I take on shifts, but this way’s more flexible; that’s important to me.

 

Rest of the month…

Research/explore more opportunities to earn from testing. There’s a specific kind I’m looking for, not the kind where you verbally give feedback, but where feedback is typed up, screen-captured. I’m better at that, I feel.

 

Anyway, that’s it. I desire to make more money, in ways I enjoy and/or am interested in, and let that desire guide the way.

February Update 2…

Just a quick update on the month since my last post.

I’ve made over $400 ($415.24). I was thinking, as I was edging closer to $400, that perhaps $500 was possible – but with a couple days left ’til the month’s out, I don’t think I’ll hit it. I got close, though. 🙂

Anyway, the month ain’t out yet, so who knows what could happen? Either way, it’s more than I made last month.

.
Proofreading accounts for a big chunk of the month’s earnings ($300+), followed by the Crowdflower tasks I do on Gift Hunter Club ($50+), then a couple other bits and pieces
.

(read more about CF tasks and Gift Hunter Club)

.
The company I proof for is fairly new – finding their feet, establishing/re-establishing rules. The rules have recently changed slightly for shift work, so I’ll be doing less hours from next month. It’s OK, though. Been keeping my eyes open for additional eggs; have signed up to a couple of things, so we’ll see what March brings with those.

 

Laters… 🙂

January Update 3: Proofreading/Gift Hunter Club/Crowdflower…

Just an update/follow-up from my last post.

Proofreading gig…

I started doing the extra hours for that on Sunday. It’s going well.

Though I have those extra hours, I can still do other things when I’m logged on for a shift, and still get paid. As long as I’m available for the flow of certain work when it comes in, it’s fine.

So, in between the flow of work, I sometimes do Crowdflower tasks on Gift Hunter Club.

Which brings me nicely to that 🙂 .

 

Gift Hunter Club/Crowdflower tasks…

So Gift Hunter Club is my chosen and preferred GPT (get paid to) platform for completing Crowdflower tasks. You can do them on a number of GPTs, but I like Gift Hunter Club (read more about Gift Hunter Club and Crowdflower).

Hadn’t done Crowdflower tasks in a while, but this month, I really got back into them, especially as I don’t have any clients anymore (my decision).

I’ve made $66.00 on Gift Hunter Club this month so far, most of which has been from completing Crowdflower tasks. The rest is from the rewards Gift Hunter gives me when I complete a certain number of tasks a day/week, and when I’m in the top 10 taskers, and also when I use Gift Hunter everyday for a week (Mon to Sun).

I’ve never made this much with Crwodflower tasks or via Gift Hunter Club or any GPT platform. The most I’ve ever made on Gift Hunter in a month doing CF tasks is $20. When I used to use Clixsense a lot and do CF tasks there, the most I made there in a month was about $55.00.

So this month really is my highest earning month re: GPT/Crowdflower tasks!

Part of the reason for that was a study/survey (CF task) I took part in that paid extremely well, about $25 altogether. Was shocked and well pleased about that 🙂 .

You sometimes get surveys/studies that randomly pop up in CF tasks and pay quite well. I don’t recall seeing them this time last year. This is the first time I’ve seen and been part of one that paid that good.

 

There’s about a week and some change to go for the month, so let’s see what that brings.

How’s your January been? Let me know if you feel to.
