There are sooo many scams and really slow online opportunities out there. Hey don't get me wrong, I'm a hard worker and a patient person, but the PTC's are like watching paint dry and many surveys, are hit and miss. What I wouldn't give for a good work at home data entry job that doesn't charge for lists of companies or want you to bring traffic to there site or some other red tape. However, my research has shown most online data entry jobs are scams. I mean... I have had a measure of success here and there with surveys and so on, yet it would be nice to get something a bit more stable. If any of you have some new info or great and economical ideas, I am total open. Thanks all :)

I completely understand what you mean. There are so many scams out there, sometimes its hard to tell whats legit anymore. I am in dire need of making extra cash, especially being a single, working mother of 2 children.

I too have a small child and I am looking for a "traditional" job also. It would be great if, as a second income, I had something I can do at home.

Try out freelance writing. Right now I am making at least 50 dollars a month in my spare time just using Triond.com. Very, very easy money, and it comes in every month, regardless of if I write any more content :D

310 articles(mainly recipes, about 250-275 recipes). I just write about things that I know people will want to read, put some hot keywords in, then promote the articles. Takes me 10 minutes to do everything for a single short recipe....

From what I understand these sites are free. Check out http://callgraph.biz/blog/ and http://typists.quicktate.com/transcribers/signup I still need to check these sites out myself. A while back some one posted about them here on mylot. I hope this is some thing for you.

Writing sites are where I make the most money at online. I have currently starting writing for Triond, but I really like Associated Content. I never had any luck with Helium but it is a good site too. There are many others, but I find that I have done well with AC and Triond. It takes a long time to make good money online, but you can do it. Keep working at it!!

First, don't expect a big money in online business like this, you just doing it for fun only, otherwise, you'll get stressed. Anyway, I don't say it is easy, but you need at least 6 months to really get money from online, or website. Like me for instance. After 5 months joining Youtube and uploads like 100 videos, 8 from my videos got paid $25 each for using Audioswap music. But you have to have plenty viewers. And my website actually got money from the advert constantly after 6 months also. Not much, only $5-7/month, but hey ... that's just coz I don't pay for the web host, domain, or anything. If I buy those kind of web hosting, probably I'll get more dollars..
