Paypal account more often...LOL!! When I went in to check to see if my ( MYLOT ) payment had been deposited this month, I was so shocked to see I Had more in my account...I had gotten paid from E-HOW!! I WAS JUST THRILLED to see that! This time around I got $13.31 from them! Again I was just shocked, surprised, thrilled, tickled pink... I really really really must start submitting more stuff on E-how, it just seems that something always gets in my way though, (sigh) you know that thing called REAL LIFE...UGH!!! Have you logged into your paypal account and found a nice "money surprise" there?? all I can say is...THANK YOU EHOW!!!

The house apes have moved, WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO Hot Damm WTG YiPeeeeeeee!!!! YaHooooooooo Does it sound like I am happy, Yep, sure am. You should have seen me, I was actually out in the street in my jammies, under the street light, doing a happy dance. I wonder if the house apes know how happy I am that they moved out. I am almost afraid to be too happy, I might jinx myself. They don't have their utilities on yet, they come over for water and to take a shower. They also have a cord between our houses for electricity. Its still much better then living with them. Hope to see you more often, I know about being busy with life, me too.

You think thats funny, they have a cord between the houses on the other side too, LOL. I know it sounds like I am making this up, I'm not, its all the truth. Here is a really funny story. My grandson comes over, he is 4 years old. He says gramma we have a new toilet, I said yeh, he then said, (straigt face) Its a bucket. ROTFLMBO Hey whatever works for them. They come over to get hot water to wash the dishes, they collect the water under the sink and use that to flush the toilet, I guess they gave up using the bucket for a toilet. Yep this is 2009 and I live in the city, Hehe. I just got done cleaning my carpet and furniture, my living room looks so pretty and clean again.

Hi Dream, that's great! Passive income is always welcome. One mylotter, Canellita, commented a few days ago that the passive income, even at the rate of a few cents per day, is still better than the miserable bank interest rate. Right now the interest rate in my country is 0.125%. At this rate, even if I keep $10,000 in the bank, the interest earned is still lesser than the $13.31 you make from ehow. How come you do not receive email notification from paypal? I always have this message, "you got fund". A few days ago, I received a message from lulu.com, about sale of my ebook. I have sort of written off those children story ebooks, so I was jumping up and down, so happy with the sale of just $1.

HI scheng1: Well to be honest I've so many different email accounts for so many different sites/and places that I sign up and join/and sign up for "free things" , coupons, and a ton of other things; I can't keep up with all my email accounts LOL! In fact If I had to tell you which one that EHOW is set up under I've have to strain my brain or flip through my notebooks I keep here with all that info in it, to help me remember where and what I sign up with. Confused yet?? LOL! So am I! HA!! But I'm sure that paypal message is there telling me, that silly me had a payment sent around July 6th and I never saw it until I logged in to see if mylot's payment had reached it yet...what a nice surprise it was though... That's really horrible news of how your interest rates in your bank are right now just goes to prove that things are rough for all of us WORLDWIDE... I've thought about trying my luck with writing E-BOOKS but never taken the time to do it; Good luck with that, I hope it sells really well for you; who knows it may just really take off for you one day soon...

Hi Dream, thanks. I hope your existing ehow articles can generate much more passive income for you in the future. It seems that I'm busier not working full time, than working at full time job. Right now I am so busy with writing for my blogs, Associated Content, Reviewstream and Helium. I'm sure the effort will pay off sooner or later. I dont mind any amount of passive income, since the interest rate is really low, and the stock market is fluctating wildly.

Hi Scheng1: you really are busy with your writing and that's great: I wish I could sit myself down and get more committed each day; I have so many rambling thoughts and what I should write and say and do about so many things, then when I turn on my computer my stupid brain shuts off...LOL! Why is that? I lay my head down on my pillow and there it is again so many rambling thoughts...(sigh)! Good luck to you with your writing;

HI bookfreak24: Thank you! I too am with Reviewstream, even though I've not written anything there for several months now I need to do that again; so much is always going on around me it seems, that dratted ( real life) stuff; Don't give up on review stream, try again with them, if they rejected an article maybe go back and do some "tweaking" add more information or something; Good luck to you; I wish the payout wasn;t so high on Reviewstream..that part with them I don't like; but I guess if I got myself "busy" and starting writing more I'd soon reach the silly payout level they have there right? anyway good luck to you! and thanks for stopping by!

I'm so grateful to places like EHOW and Mylot and others that do pay us you know? The LEGIT SITES...Thank God for them!!!

E-How doesn't pay out unless you live in U.S. so don't think I'll join it. I had a wonderful surprise a few years ago, A parcel arrived at my house, when I opened it there was an Olympus Camera, and a slip that said 'Congratulation on winning our first prize of a camera' in our competition, this was from a printer ink company. Although I had visited the site, I had never bought anything from them, and wasn't even aware that I had entered the competition. These are the prizes that I really like. They also included a case for the camera, an XD card for storage and two tins of pepermint sweets - yummy!!

Wow I will check this out! I always need a little extra money to cover the bills and get some treat stuff for me and my family. What do you need to do at EHOW to get paid?

just go to www.ehow.com and sign up for the writers compensation program. It will give you all the information you need to sign up. You will also need a paypal account in order to get started and they only deal with people who live in the U.S. althought paypal you can have an account no matter where you are. I think they have not got so far to be able to accept people from over seas.

Good job! Indeed, this is such a pleasant surprise. I'm wondering when I'll get mine too Seriously, I wish I'd get my own payment from AC too. By the way, how long did it take you to reach more than 13 dollars from ehow. I don't get that much from AC despite payment taking a whole lot to increase.

You Go Girl!! Yay!!!! I have a question regarding Paypal. How do you get these sites to automatically put the money you've earned into your Paypal account? I'm stumped. I have an account, but, I don't understand this. Thanks for helping out Jan! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

Hey dream, congrats for your achievement, I know it feels great when you receive surprise money in your account, It actually feels great even when you know you are going to get money, but getting money without knowing is even better. I am not much of a writer, so can't join that site, and I think it accepts members only from the U.S, you know some other legit way to earn money ?
