I decided yesterday that I’d like to make $50 a week on the proofreading site I use. Though the company no longer offers shifts, I still think it’s possible to make $50 a week there just by logging in and proofing what comes through.
I made about $60 there in the last two weeks of December, and so far I’ve made $23.22 this month. Of the $23.22, I’ve made $18.96 this week. Plus I recently cashed out $10. Once the PayPal fees come off, that’s $9.26, so that’ll be $28.22 in total.
That leaves me with roughly two days to make $21.78.
I think I can do it. However, it does depend on the flow of work available.
In terms of my time and effort, as long as I’m on the computer, I’m good. I can leave the proofreading window open on my browser and get on with other things that need doing. When something comes in that needs proofing, I’ll do it if I want to, then go back to whatever I’m doing. It’s no different to how I tend to work with it, just that I plan on leaving the window open over a longer period of time.
I think $50 a week’s possible – however, having recently decided on that amount, it doesn’t leave me with much time to reach it this week. Had I decided on Monday, I think I would have been closer to my goal. However, I’m curious to see if I can do it, so that energy should help. 🙂
