Hey everyone. I am not sure how all of you feel about this but most of us have more than one sources of income when it comes to making money online. For example, I am in some sites where they do pay their writers but unfortunately, Ehow doesn't pay me very much per month for residual but I guess it's great that it is always over $10 from there and have gotten paid by them since October 2008. I am curious on how all of you make your income online as well. I am thinking about doing transcribing and so far applied at three transcribing companies online.

Not sure if you want my suggestion but I think that you should try having other sources of income in order to make more than what you are getting at this site. Not that I am bashing Mylot. I love interacting with different types of people as well as sharing ideas with each other. I think that if you are still a beginner, it is wise to learn how everyone else on here are making income as well. Last month, I made over $100 but I would love to earn way more than that. I see it as chump change but I guess it is better than nothing. One of the other sites I make money is Ehow which is residual. I need to write more articles for them I guess. I hope that I had inspire you to make more than what you are getting now. And I love being able to get paid for doing some stuff as well. I am however, am peeved that last month, Mylot didn't pay me when even though they stated on my history folder than they did to my paypal. My paypal show that they didn't. I am expecting to get a Pin code from microworker site but I am going to think that one is a scam for now since I have to wait in the mail. Sorry if I am rambling on here but thought to give you my thoughts since just making money on here is not enough for me in my opinion.

I'm due my 20th. payment from myLot in a few days time. They do pay. Regularly. If they say they paid then they did - to the email address you gave myLot. Check your back office here to make sure you didn't make a typo - common mistake. Good luck for your next $10 here.

Yeah. You can make money online and I have paypal proof. Unfortunately, I never surpass over the $300 for each month for a big chunk of the time ever since July 2008. I am curious on what else you would love to do online in order to earn income. So far, the most and the quickest way is to be a writer/reviewer/blogger. But even doing transcribing for some online companies can be beneficial too since I came across a few that pays really well and I am thinking about getting into general transcription.

I'm planning to create a blog but not sure how to start, can you give me some ideas? I joined a few surveys sites but I haven't got any payment yet which is frustrating. I like to write and if I can find any good review/ writing site I like to join them...any suggestions?

As for blog, you can start off with blogger. As you progress and am great at writing and working on your blogger blog, you can later on switch to wordpress which some of the bloggers I talk to uses wordpress in order to use it for professional purposes. I am thinking about having my own domain link for a wordpress account after I make way more than what I am getting now. As for writing sites, there are so many. Such as Associated Content, Ehow (I get residual each month from them since October 2008 but didn't do it in time for the September 2008 payment), Bukisa, etc. There are some writers who landed on their first try to be Demand Studios writers and on my second try, I landed it good and was emailed this following message on October 13, 2009 that I was approved to be a writer for the site. They have most of the articles which pays $15 each but almost a big chunk of the fact sheets are $7.50 each. As for review sites, there are so many though as well. Can check into doing blogging as well and have gotten paid a few times by blogging on my blog but haven't done that lately.

my only source of income is the internet I am in mlm multi level marketing and that is my only source of income. I have been running my own mlm business for about 10 years and have never had a normal job doing the 9-5 rat race in about 7 years as I earn about 3 times what I would earn working for someone.

That's good. For now, doing mlm is not a route that I am willing to take since I want to make money for sure by doing something. I am not good at recruiting people which in the past, I have done some mlm as well. And none of them panned out as I had hope due to a few reasons. Now that I am much more wiser, maybe someday will get back into it but for now, I need income for sure. And writing has made me some money. But also do other online stuff to earn income. Since I am at home for a big chunk of the time due to young kids, why not make some for myself instead of relying on money from my hon? I have arms and legs too.

really, to tell you to truth, I haven't made any money online yet, But I am hoping to get my first payment from mylot. I have yet to figure out how to link my bank account to paypal yet though, so I still have time to figure that out while I earn on mylot. I should be getting near to my first dollar soon... Well, that is what I am currently hoping for anyway. :)

How you can link it to your bank account is that if you are located in the USA as like I am, you link it by knowing your route and account number which is on your checks if you ordered it. Or you can go to your local bank whom you have an account with and they can give you the numbers. I had linked it directly to my bank account so then I get all of the money that I work hard to get without having paypal to charge me $1.50 for a check when I can have it deposited in my bank account for free. I wouldn't just rely on making money on this site. You should be open to making some at other site. As we say, multiple sources of income is good for making money.

My main online sources as of today are myLot, CashCrate and Paid2youtube. The second one asks you to subscribe to some newsletters or complete surveys and the last one pays you for viewing videos.

My main source of online income comes from neobux.com. In 2 years I've earned and received gross over $750 in 2 years, but i had to spend over 325 keeping up the referrals overtime, still that is a good chunk of change. I did invest in bux.to too, invested too much however. Was supposed to get over $900 as payment a year ago, but i have yet to see it. You win some, you lose some right?

That is pretty good. I made over that much this year so it is good but in combination of different sites such as textbroker, ehow, associated content, and some other sites where I got paid for doing such as surveys, etc. I did do the bux site but gave that up since I was researching about it. Long story short, that site is a scam of reading what others said. And just like you, they didn't get their payment. I am starting to think that way with a site called Microworkers. With a lot of companies online, none of them that I know will give you your payment when you get your PIN number at home. So I have %9 on a standstill and I want that money now to be deposited in my paypal. For the time being, I am not gonna waste my time to do any of the task there. Might as well concentrate somewhere else.

Well I get most of my income from triond and then ehow would be next inline however I am still looking for more ways to make some money online since the economy isnt all that great and jobs arent easy to find and well I don't want to live out on the cold snowy streets with a toddler. I wouldnt think anyone else would want to either.

I don't think any of us want to live out in the street. I have three young girls and expecting a fourth one so I know that making really good amount online is harder for some depending on the situation. For example, I am friends online with one mom who is a writer and I encourage her since her writing sample for one guy was pretty good and she still writes for him. However in my case, I was let go. But had some luck on getting to be one of the writers for some sites so I guess it is better than nothing. I haven't written anything for triond but I do like getting income each month from ehow. I guess every little bit helps, right? I don't just do blogging and writing but also do other stuff as well just so I can make as much as I want when I can of course.
