$30 A Day: Update 2

Compared to March, this month has been somewhat slow and uneventful. I’ve made $121.41 so far. My average has gone up a bit from $7.89 a day to $8.09 a day.

Tasks continue to be very dry on the ground with the second gig. Proofreading work has dried up a bit too. Of recent, it’s felt like it’s taken me longer to hit $10 there. I’ve had a few times when I’ve hit more than $10 in a day, but generally, the pace of workflow has felt slower. There’s also me still not syncing up my day with when the site’s busier, but that’s not that different from all the other times when I don’t!

It’s Easter weekend, so I expected things would be quieter. However, I managed to reach $10 yesterday (Saturday) and also the day before. I’m over halfway to reaching another $10. I’ll see if I can do that by the time I hit the sack tonight or by the end of Sunday morning. Ideally, I’d like to go into the rest of Sunday knowing there’s roughly $30 on its way to me soon. (Update: done!)

The rest of the month, I’ll be trying to get my ass up earlier so I can catch more work. I’m such a night owl. (cooo, cooo. flutter, flutter.)



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? 🙂


Proofreading: $20-a-day Aim (Update)

So, my idea a couple of weeks ago was to see if I could make $20 a day on the proofreading site I use.

I did OK the first couple of days, but lost the focus/enthusiasm to make that amount per day. However, I’ve been able to manage $10 days easily. I wouldn’t have been able to do that had I not aimed to make $20 a day, so that’s cool.

I now know I can go at a steady but leisurely pace and make $10 a day ($10 days are now the norm for me); but if I want to push myself, I can make $20 or close to it.

Since 7th September when I posted about my idea, I’ve made just under $140. I also have about $37 due to me and I’m working my way towards another $10. I’m set to make more this month from the site than I’ve made in any month this year.

What this experiment has taught me:

– what I can achieve if I focus (and it doesn’t have to be a huge amount of focus, but being consistent helps)

– that it all adds up, the effort put in each day, no matter how small per day.

– that I like receiving money. I like the current flow of money I’m manifesting. I like what I’ve made and I like what’s coming to me.

I look forward to making more money between now and the end of the month.

I’m not used to talking about money in this way; I’m aware I’m talking about it in a different way in this post, almost like I’m reclaiming some of my power. I wasn’t aware of where I was with that until I wrote this post.

Anyway, have a cool weekend, all. 🙂


Proofreading: I Want to Make $50 a Week. (Week 2)

I’m doing OK. Over the halfway mark now – $27.48.

I have three days to hit my target. I’ve almost reached another cashout, so that will take me to around $31.

The weekend’s looking a bit busy as I’m out both days, but I’m determined to hit my target this week. No hoping. I am the hope, so to speak! Ka!

Proofreading: I Want to Make $50 a Week… (Update – Week 1)

So my plan is to make $50 a week this month by proofreading online.

$200 a month.

Ideally, I’d like this to be the case from month to month.

There’s a site I use where I think it’s possible.

I unfortunately didn’t hit my target last week (week 1) – I made $33.00 – but that’s because I only decided on the target late last week, leaving me with a couple of days to attempt to reach it. Had things to do over the weekend, so had even less time.

This week, it’s on!

I’ve made $4.48 so far and there’s another on its way.

I think I can hit another payout by the time I waddle to bed. (I’m a night owl)

If I can make $10 there every other day, I’ll reach my target (even with PayPal fees taken off).

It’s not a lot of work. I sit there doing other stuff I need to do until proofing work trickles in. I choose if I want to do it or let it pass. Sometimes, someone takes it before I do (as I’m not the only one logged in).

I basically dip in and out of the site as and when. There aren’t any set hours.

Anyway, this $50 IS GONNA HAPPEN THIS WEEK! (she says).

I can be pretty laid back when it comes to earning online, preferring to go with my own flow and interests. It’s part of my nature. I tend to want to go where my interests are.

However, how I feel at this time is that I need some kind of personal(ised) system where I know that a certain amount of energy applied from month to month will earn me a certain amount of money.

This site I’m using will be one of them. If I can get into a rhythm, then I know I can more or less make $200 a month.

Wish me luck 🙂
