Such a Waste of Time?

Philippines
January 7, 2010 12:55pm CST
There are days that I feel like I am making a good amount of money online especially if I have a lot of blogging assignments from get-paid-to blog sites. I can earn around $20-30 just in one day. However, there are days that I feel like I am wasting my time online and the amount earned on certain days is not worth the time I spend online. Have you felt this too?

I feel this all the time, but I don't give up trying to earn online because I have a job, which is my primary source of income, so I only consider my online earnings as extra money. I also find earning online fun. It helps me get rid of stress after working long hours in the office.

Well I think we all have to thankful for the income we do get...This is such as easy way to make money so be grateful. I never look at my daily totals, but usually for the week. The average looks much better than the daily totals. I just wish I could get a faster internet connection because slow speed is the thing that I hate the most. Good luck to you and hang in there.

I do get to feeling the same way. Sometimes online earning is a huge rollercoaster. You can spend alot of effort on doing something and then get very little in return. Blogging seems to be like this even if you are one that sticks with it sometimes nothing works. It would be nice if there was a good plan , if you do x, y, and z you will earn this amount but it just dont work that way. I find having a good mix of things to do helps.... mylots, wirting articles, digital photography and now blogging. If we have a mix maybe it helps when one seems to work better than others.I also try to find other gain from online work other than just money like making friends and expressing my creativity so when earning are very little it doesnt seem like a total waste of time spent. Goodluck

I agree, I do that too. I have some sites that pay very well too but I am not always in the mood to write long articles or reviews to earn 10-20 bucks so sometimes I just posts on forums, and that brings me not very much. Although I am happy to earn every single dollar sometimes when I turn around I realize that it has been more than 3 - 4 hours since I started writing and that certainly isn't good.

What would we be expecting, when the rush to make money online is piling up day by day. Sooner, It would get to a point where every penny earned is appreciated.

I relate to your sentiments because I often feel that way. It probably isn’t worth the time in a practical sense but I enjoy working online so much that I can accept the low income! My husband is the one that gets annoyed with me because he feels I spend too much time working for so little and with his practical male mind he can think of a lot more profitable ways for me to earn; he is not creative nor a writer so I don’t expect he will ever understand!

I make money online by working for companies. If you want the links just send me a message and I will send you the ones that I got. I average about $20-$30 a day.

I think that everyone goes through their periods of frustration. I certainly know that I do. Although I've never been able to do nearly the average that you are able to get per day, I am happy that I am able to in essence find a little bit of money that we really weren't counting on. I keep looking for ways to earn a little bit more money, but I am hesitant to have a lot of different sites going at one time when I don't know if they will really pay.

Well almost but what I do is I tried to enjoy surfing the internet. I tried learning new things so that I will not get bored or frustrated.

Yeah berry, I'm wondering the same thing here...eversince I started working online I noticed that I can't seem to earn more. It just made me think that online jobs are just for extra income and may not be a good career unless your work pays you every hour. Right now, i'm currently a medical article writter and from what they post on job openings they say they will pay $30, but it depends on the amount of articles they will give you. THen suddenly they just give you 5 articles per week and that will not get me anywhere, right? Comes to think of it I get only $1 per article. I do hope they put some extra money per article. Anyway your earn more by blogging...I do hope I get to know how to do that. Nice topic you started here berry. Happy mylotting.

Thats really nice that you earn 20 dollars for your blogging assignments in just one day,yes that happens with most of us that what we think we have spent the time on being online ,and what we were paid for it was not enough.I feel this also ,many a times I think I am wasting time being online ,but that happens.

I have been online for many years, trying my hands on so many things that promises riches. But after everything, I used to think I am not spending my time wisely. For you to be earning $20-30, you must be very lucky. I'm yet to find a job that siutes me and whose pay is high

i do some time feels like you in the past, where i should maintain and try to optimize my blog to get more traffic, but right know i have the result from my hard work. Beside from my blog i do create some routine article for website article. I think it's just about the time to get the best result in this field and the more important thing are to focus and never give up on what we are doing right know. Find the best opportunity to get extra income, then you will get benefit from your effort.
