Online Earnings: September 2010…

img credit: rosmary

I’m not too happy with my earnings for Sept, especially as I was aiming for $500.

I made $163.45. 🙁

Though it’s not the least I’ve earned in a month this year, I don’t think it’s that great either. I’m not in the mood to comfort myself by reasoning that it could have been worse or “ah well, there’s always next month”.

It could have been better. Period.

Thinking about it, it’s not really the earnings I’m disappointed with. It’s more me.

Silver lining: I’ve been making more on CloudCrowd every month, with last month being the highest at $102.20. 🙂

Earnings breakdown:
(any figures in pounds means I was originally paid in that currency)

CloudCrowd: $102.20 (paid to complete tasks) (read my CloudCrowd review)

ToneADay: $16.87 (read review)

– Blog commenting: $15.27 (£9.94)

– Surveys: $12.45 (MySurvey UK: $7.86 (£5.00); Pinecone Research: $4.59 (£3.00))

myLot: $10.16 (busy, busy forum-posting community covering a multitude of topics. Pays once a month via Paypal. Min payout: $10. I’m not super active on the site, so only get a payment a very long once in a while.)

Lucky Pacific: $6.00 (affiliate network)

QuickRewards Network: $0.50 (GPT site) (read review)

Total ——- $163.45

Though I’m not feeling how last month panned out, what’s done is done. I can’t roll back time. All I can do is learn from it and move my butt forward.

I’m out…

    Have you considered doing some work for ChaCha? I know it isn’t much either but the work is fairly simple, fast, and it’s a reasonable expectation to make the cash-out minimum of $150 per month. I don’t know how much time you have on your hands but maybe it would be of service to you.

    I do have a recent entry on my blog about it, and have even set-up a Fiverr listing so others can purchase a step-by-step instructional sheet from me to help their odds of getting hired. I’d totally send that to you for free, no problem, if you were interested in ChaCha.

    And, no, I’m not some crazy “sign up under me!” ChaCha nut either. I’m just me, wanting to help you 🙂

    Aw, I’m sorry your earnings weren’t as much as you expected hun. 🙁 I really hope you do better next month. Trust me, I know what it’s like not doing that great.. then you really do feel like giving up this whole thing and all the effort it takes. I hope you do better in October! 🙂

    Don’t give up! And greatttt work on CloudCrowd! 🙂

    Hi Ann,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve heard about ChaCha several times in the past. As far as I can see, it’s only open to US residents. As I’m in the UK, I wouldn’t be able to apply.

    Also, even if I could join, the min payout of $150 is too high, in my opinion.

    I’m glad it appears to be going great for you though :-)/ I hope you also get some interest on Fiverr.

    Take care…

    Hi TriNi 🙂

    Yeah, September was a bit of a bummer 🙁

    I don’t feel like giving up – and I won’t. I’m still curious about and interested in making money online — so I guess I should be grateful for not having a metaphorical limp dick in that regard 😉

    You, m’lady, are doing fabulously well! I’m glad one of us is 🙂 Couldn’t take it if both of us were doing shit. I’d throw myself into a pool of chocolate, I would.

    Take care!
