So I am new here...

So I decided to post a little bit about myself. Not sure if this is what I should be doing, or if this is where I should be doing it. I am a single mother of 3 boys, trying hard to give them everything they need and want. The boys are 12, 10, and 2. Yes there is a bit of a gap between the ages, I wasnt really expecting to have any more children, it just kind of happened. But I love them all so much and want the best for them. So being a single mother, I work full time and I attend school online full time. I am home sick today. I went in to work for a couple of hours, just until the person I help out came in. Turns out that tomorrow he is not going to be there, so even if I am still sick, I have to work. I dont mind for the most part, I like being needed at work. I also volunteered to work on Wednesday for 4 hours. I figure it is double time for working and holiday pay on top of it. So since I am new here, I am looking for friends. Anyone who has any great ideas for making money, I am always looking for new ways to become rich. I dont want to work forever, would love to make enough money to retire in the next 10 years. Well, I hope to hear some responses from everyone soon!

Hi there. I'm also a single mother of 2 boys ages 19 & 7. I work a full time job, have a farm, & getting ready to start a part time job. If you want good information on work at home jobs for some extra stash cash check out wahm.com. I refer this site all of the time & get nothing out of it but I have gotten lots of good advice & guidence. That is how I found my part time job that hopefully will turn full time in the future once I'm ready to quit this job. Good luck. PM if you ever need to just blow off steam. I know it can be stressful being a single mom.

Welcome to myLot! I can tell that you are a very strong woman. To have 3 boys, work full time and go to school full time, is just amazing to me. You are an inspiration to all single mothers out there. I can tell that you are also an amazing mom. To do all of that to make sure that your sons are taken care of makes you the best mom that you can possibly be. Good luck with work tomorrow and I hope you like it here!

Let me also add that when you respond to discussion, you need to respond to discussions that you are sure you have knowledge to contribute to. You need to make sure there are no errors in spelling or grammar in your responses. You need to start discussions that are unique and interesting so other members can respond to them as well. You may upload photos to your discussions and responses and you could get referrals as well. You should make sure you read the guidelines so as not to do anything that is against them and it will be helpful to check the guidelines once in a while in case there are any changes or modifications to them. This could save you a lot of trouble. Have a nice day.

Welcome to mylot. You can make a lot of friends here and share your thoughts and ideas with them. You will make some money too although I doubt if it will make you rich. You need to respond to discussions started by other members and try to make the responses at least 4 lines long so you can earn up to 1 cent each. Try not to have too many errors in it as well. You can upload photos to help your earnings as well. You may also get referrals.

2 weeks on... Welcome I hope you have been enjoying yourself here so far.... You sound as if you are very busy, so glad you can find some spare time to be here.... I'm from Australia and have two children 4.5 and 2 nearly 3....My partner owns his own business and I do all the office work and any running around... I earn a little of the internet not much but enough for that little added extra to spend on myself.... Nice to meet you and hope you continue to enjoy it here :)

So great to meet you! Wow three boys! We have two and somedays I think I'm crazy for wanting another baby (like today). Our boys are 5 and 2. You are an awesome mom to take on all those things. I hope you don't have too much more school left. I'm also working at making money online. I want to be able to make enough to make our house payment. Although so far it is slow going. I work on it every day, but it takes lots of patience. I have a great mentor and that is a huge plus. I stay at home with the boys and can't wait for MOPS to start so I can get out of town on a regular basis again. I really miss getting together with other moms. I too an striving to make a residual income to at least have a comfortable living for our future and not have to worry about finances.

Very welcome to myLot, may you have a good time here, I certainly do. It is relatively easy here to make friends, it is like in the real world, if we respect each other we all should be friends anyways. And good look with your money making aspirations, it is difficult to make money on the internet, I only make about $ 50.00 a week and I spend a lot of time on the Internet.

Welcome to mylot, I hope you enjoy your time here. You won't make alot of money here, but you can learn alot here. And what you learn might lead into you making alot of money. Good Luck, I am always looking to make money too, I think most of us are. I put you down for a friend request, the more time you spend here you will see we are a friendly group of people. We are also a group of caring and helping people.

Your ideas are to get rich quicker, the same as mine. I like work under the uncontrollable work. I feel to work as I feel like to do. I work over time but I never get paid on that hard work. You can write a blog, example: http://dollarkip.blogspot.com Make more genuine site links to your blog and make money.

Welcome to MyLot and I am sure that you will enjoy it here. It is a fun place and you will make alot of friends. Theres not really anything on the net to get rich with you just have to weight your pros and cons of things and find something and stick with it. if you maybe visit my website I have some online stores there that you can sell things and make money at home from. good luck in your schooling and you are off to a great start I was also a single mom raising two boys.
