United States
October 15, 2008 5:15pm CST
I am looking for some ways i can generate some extra money online. I am a single mother of 3 children and want to make some extra money online, but can't find anything that isn't a scam. I don't have a lot of money to invest but do have the time as long as it is something that you can do. I am very knowledgable with computers and the internet just haven't found the right program. Please help with advice. Much appreciated

Hi, you reminded me when I started venturing online income. There's a bit of sites that are truly legit. 90% are outright scams. Just be weary of high rewards site. I'm into a lot of programmes and majority I have been paid but only confident to reccomend a few. You could view them on the website on my profile. Goodluck on your venture. Have a good start. It'll take time but slowly you'll realise your rewards gets better if you find the right sites. Wellcome to Mylot!!!

I think the best thing is too look at WAHM.com... they are stay at home moms as well... here... I've seem a bunch of posts for scams... "pay me $10 and I'll turn it to $2000 in 2 months". Wahm is legit and they help... I tried posting the same question you did (legit ways of earning money) and no one could reply with something legit. Good Luck

I don't understand why people can't post legit ones. I know there are a ton of people that make several hundreds of dollars online and I don't understand how tey are doing it.

Well I was a member of WAHM work at home moms... and I tried getting information - there was a group that would get offended when you asked for leads ... they said it's because they've donne the research. I mean some WAHM members are really sweet and help you out ... but others just bark lol.

The way I did it was thru free program. And after I earn some money I then invested in hight ROI return program. I kept doing like that for over a year. At the moment I can an income that enable me to pay the rent, groceries and bills and going out every once in while with my friends. You can add me as friend and pm me. I do not spam on people so I don't send out pm. But, if you message me I'll answer right away.

I've spent the last day or so hunting around the web on various recommended sites, but can't find anything that pays decent money.

This is such a common problem. There are so many work from home scams out there. It truly is frustrating. I have a lot of friends also looking so we decided I should start a blog, keeping track of it all. I write the blog and some of my friends have been sending me programs to check out. Still not making a living yet, but I'm trying a lot of programs. I read through your responses here and I'm going to look at a couple of them too. The blog is www.myjourneytomakingalivingonline.blogspot.com. Good luck to you and all of us looking for legitimate income!

I get scatter brained when I am trying to remember alot of things. I know that it says you want to make money online I don't know if this is 100% what your thinking but you could try www.etsy.com as well. Its like ebay except for crafts. So, if you are crafty at anything in particular you can make extra money selling your items. I don't do this because I don't have that kind of talent but I know people that make decent money doing this and they still get to have fun making money off of their favorite hobbies...just a thought! :)

I do another site like this. I make more there, but it's in gift cards or PayPal. I do a couple of other sites where I make a little bit, but I don't make a ton. They're fun though, so I keep it up. Oh, and I never pay a dime to do anything online. You might check out this post on my blog for some ideas. http://sahmrambles.blogspot.com/ (The post is right on top). Thanks.

I have made $42 in 5 weeks for writing a Blog with Today.com, the first 30 days you get paid $1 a day for a post of 100 words or more. You write about a topic you pick for your Blog and as long as your Blog stays within that topic you get paid. Cashout is $50, you will be re-evaluated after each 30 days and your pay will be adjusted based on quality and page views. After the first 30 days I was offered a chance to receive a second paid Blog so I earn twice as much eacg day. There are those who have been with them for a couple years who are now writing upwards of 4 Blogs and being paid for them.

My name is Audrey Johnson and I may have a solution for you. I am a Tupperware Consultant and you can really make some extra bucks selling tupperware even online. Mainly if you want to do it online you have to know some peoples email addresses. But selling Tupperware can be convienent for you. You pick your owns hours and everything. This may be a solution for you. I know it sounds crazy But you can make up to an extra $2000 a month. It is crazy and you would think it would not work but it does. Many businesses enjoy having parties and everything but you dont have to have parties just hand out flyers and a way to contact you. It can work if you really wanna put some effort in. If your interested you can contact me at lovemytupperware09@yahoo.com hope I can help you with your money worries!

Seems like you have gotten quite a response!!! If you haven't found a program that works just yet, I may have something that might be right up your alley. I am a member of a system that teaches people how to make $100s-$1000s daily, with no out of pocket cost to get started. This isn't some get rich overnight thing; as a matter of fact we tell everyone that they should give the program 90 days of hard work before seeing any results. Its different for some. I got my first payment in a little over 60 which you can see in my photos page. If you would like more information, go to the banner in my profile and it will take you straight to it. I would like to tell you the name beforehand, but it will get your discussion deleted.

I have made a bit of extra money online in the past few months using a few free to join websites.The details, updates with payments received are on my blog, the link is on my profile page... Try not to sign up to any sites that require money to start up as there's sites that will pay you without having to pay them first

You could try this (won't make you lots - just maybe a bit). MyHPF (My Homepage Friends) is this program where you search on their search engine (based on Yahoo!) and you get pounds per non-spam search. You can have your children search for school-work and etc and you might get the 20 pound payout not too long. Just a bit of extra pounds (for your interest, 1 pound is equivalent to about ~1.60 USD). http://www.myhpf.co.uk/apply001.asp?Friend=265472 P.S. You earn 10% of referral search earnings! ^^
