What is your "stay home" job?

I have been unemployed for a long time so I started to look for alternatives. I started as a country manager in may, after a few months i found an offer to translate some things and now I'm set up on some freelancer pages and offers started to come in, right now i'm negotiating a translation job and a data collection job. What do you do in financial crisis situation? Do you have a "stay-home" gig that makes you few extra bucks?

I work from home and started as a web site designer. The more web sites I created for clients that more I wished I was working web sites instead of building them so I quit web design and started blogging. Now I blog about my hobbies.

Sounds really good. I have the skills also but I don't have the imagination to be a designer. I could do programming too but its a little boring for me.

To earn from blogging, you need to have good English standards. It's a pity you're not in the UK, as I know a few sites here but owing to forex problems they don't take people from abroad (nothing to do with bad English, just admin) A lot of people don't know what paid blogging is. Try going on a news agency site like BBC, and reading the news articles. They are done by paid bloggers like me. Professional blogging is really about creating on-line magazine articles that direct traffic to a site, using keywords but not keyword stuffed - so they have to be informative as well as helpful to the site owner. Although a lot of my work is so-called blogging, I call myself a web journalist to differentiate between my "real" job, and coming here. But if you're prepared to a) be criticised if your English/content isn't up to scratch and b) do a lot of research so you can write like a "pro" on subjects you know nothing about (I'm covering forex/loft conversions/Yorkshire holidays/petrochem industries/glass fibre roofing and SEO companies at the moment. I've been to Yorkshire and, um, used to own a labrador is about the level of my knowledge on all these)then for sure you can earn $1000 + a month, easily.

Wow, I'm amazed and suddenly very interested also. I have like 3 blogs but non of them are very good and I have always thought that blogging equals waste of time. I'm starting to change my mind now. :)

Hello, my basic formula for making extra money while at home and work, it to post here at Mylot, also post on Scavengercash.net, I also play games and upload pictures on there, you earn 2.7 cents for each thing you do on there, and finally stay active on neobux and trekpay.

I still do those things to but they don't earn me real money. I still need to pay my bills and neobux won't do it for me

Same here, but I do upbux and Svbux. I haven't started trakpay yet but I could give it a try. For Neobux, I think you need to invest if you are going for serious money. IF you are just a standard member I doubt anyone will gain profit, My aim on Neobux is getting 4000 Refs at ultimate, even if I average around 0.98 I will still get at least a 300$ in pure profit.

I don't do it for the purpose of earning a real income, it's become a kind of a hobby for me, I have a very good down line in Donkeymails so I just make sure it earns something to me and I like to surf around and see new pages etc. The earning part for me is somewhere else. I am a member in several survey panels also.

I just bought me a smart washing machine from last month's wages, and now am looking for a dog. I write articles for an on-line agency. They give me enough work to keep me employed full-time and though it's not huge wages at present (mainly because I don't touch type, and my eyes get tired) I submit invoices etc so it's definitely a "real" job. My only gripe is, it's not giving me any time to do Mylot tasks - and I really love those!

When I got my first salary I paid my bank loans and it felt so good. I even had a little left to get a present to my boyfriend :)

Yes i enjoy it but i haven't paid anything to start earning my money. i made it clear to myself from the beginning that what ever i do i will not pay for it. But i do agree that most places just want money and they are not worth it.
