March ’10 Earnings…

(img credit: tm_lv)

I haven’t had much enthusiasm for this blog or making money online lately. Not sure why, but that’s the way it’s been over the past couple of weeks. Am I changing? Are my priorities and interests changing? Maybe. I don’t know. All I know is that making money online doesn’t seem quite as important to me as it used to be.

Maybe the enthusiasm will return. Maybe not. Doesn’t seem to bother me either way for now.

Anyway, despite that, I have been making bits of money online here and there. I still managed to make more than I did in February which was my aim. February, I made $36.52. March, I made $47.62. Breakdown is as follows:

Crowdology (survey site) – $6.14 (£4.16)

MyVoice (survey site) – $30.10 (£20.00)

Swagbucks (paid to search) – $5.00 (read review)

Pinecone Research
(survey site) – $4.51 (£3.00) (read review)

QuickRewards Network (GPT site) – $1.87 (read review)

TOTAL — $47.62

Have a good month, people, whatever your plans are.

I’m out…

    Congrats on your earnings hun, and whatever your plans are, whether it’s to make money online or not, then so be it.

    Either way, I’m happy you started out in this venture, otherwise if you hadn’t, I wouldn’t have met an amazing person like yourself. 😉

    Take care hun..

    From looking at your results, I would say you just haven’t broken through the barrier to entry yet. How would you feel if those earnings all had a zero or two tacked on to the end? Do you think you might be a little more enthused?

    Hi Warren,

    Thanks for passing by.

    Good question.

    If there were a couple more zeros tagged to the end, I doubt I’d feel any more enthused unless I was passionate about the particular method/area I was using/exploring.

    For e.g., I did freelance writing before and I wasn’t earning too bad an amount. However, over time, with the waning passion, I lost all interest in it, so eventually packed it in.

    Take care…

    I think lack of enthusiasm can be just as useful as buckets of it. I’m using my disinterest to guide my next move.

    Is there anything else you’d rather be doing – even if it’s offline?

    Take care…

    lol Ever since I got a job
    at Subway I’ve been like,
    “Geez, I can make $6 (or
    something like that) an
    hour, when before I was
    doing PTCs and making $0.10
    an hour?”
    I recently got an email
    from some newsletter thing
    about incremental income,
    and I’m sort of curios as
    to what sorts of passive
    and automatic income I could
    eventually make. I like
    working at Subway, but I can
    tell that it would be better
    for me to be doing it out of
    enjoyment, than
    “Eh, it pays the bills.” sort
    of thing.
    So… I guess it could be aptly
    put, I’m still looking. My
    perspective has changed a little
    bit, too. I think I’d like to do
    something that’s social and also
    focuses on a sort of niche thing,
    like helping older people with
    computers or something like that.
    Y’know, Bestbuy sort of stuff
    Overall, I’m not sure. But PTCs
    and what I’ve collected so far
    aren’t cutting it, when I’d been
    hoping they would. Swagbucks and
    Gomez add a little coin, but I’m
    not sure I’ll be able to find
    a whole lot of little programs
    like them that would pile up to make
    for a big pile of cash, nor am
    I sure that I could, over time,
    keep finding more and more of
    these things, which sounds like
    an ideal way of going about it.

    🙂 Glad you’re still blogging.
    I’ve been neglecting mine, mostly
    because I’ve been busy doing stuff
    with people. Been playing with the
    concept of getting a lot of low
    and quick-paying PTCs to make
    a pile-up of PTCs.

    If PTCs aren’t really doing it for you, maybe it’s time to cut complete ties with it.

    I think you might be onto something re: over 50s and computers. Courses where I live are oversubscribed. Maybe you could do one-on-one sessions in your area.

  7. Ajith Edassery

    Well, we seem to have a problem crossing the double digits. Though, I have been less active on the blogging front, fortunately some of my old affiliate links are fetching in some decent money.

  8. ebele

    Hi Ajith 🙂

    What’s more of a problem for me is having the courage to follow my interests & ideas (I have loads).

    I think it’s great that you’re earning residually. That’s pretty cool.

    Take care and thanks for passing through.

  9. Udegbunam Chukwudi

    Hang in there the feeling should be back in no time. It happens from time to time to everybody though i doubt if it happens to those bloggers out there that earn as much as $1,000 a week. lol

    Sorry for the silence. I’m been without a working laptop for quite sometime now.

  10. ebele

    Hey Udegbunam 🙂

    I ain’t sweating it too much. The interest will come back of its own accord, I guess.

    p.s.: Nothing for you to apologise for. Good to hear from you.

    Take care…
