Yeah, you've read it right! I usually spend the extra money I earn online on coffee and snacks, but in December I got into some financial problems and got into big debts that I couldn't pay. and I had overdue bills and two days ago I paid one of them using purely the money I earned the previous two weeks. I paid a bill. And it made me think that FINALLY, this is going somewhere, because onloine earning are helping me survive! I just wanted to share the joy with you mylotters! This is partially thanks to you for pointing me to all those possibilities out there!

I am really happy for what you have accomplished. To some people, they really find online earning as a waste of time. In your case, it is something that is really worth the effort. I to have been using my earnings online in paying bills. At first, the earning I get is not enough but as time passes by, it reach to a point that it is even more enough to pay for my internet bill. Now, I do have some extra earnings after paying my monthly bills. Well, I do hope to reach the point that I will use the earnings as well to cover all other bills that I have. Good luck to you and more earnings to come.

That is exactly my ultimate goal. To be able to support myself, pay all my bills and still have some profit left from my online earnings. I know it's possible, because there are many people who already accomplished it. Thank you for your response!

Good for you! I am still spending my earnings on coffee and snacks, but I am about to reopen my online store. I guess we all need extra earnings in these hard times. Congratulations!

That is great news. Can you share what are the earnings which you have earned from online, i.e. I would like to know from which site, you have earned the money and how much you have earned. This will help us other mylotters to concentrate on this particular sites, and earn some good money.This will really help us all to make some extra money on the side.Since you have also mentioned that our other friends have pointed you in the right direction, I think you can also point us in the same direction.

Wow, that's fantastic news! I'm still struggling on with surveys but not getting anywhere too fast. I like to think that 'every little helps', but I don't think I could pay a bill off (even after 2 yrs of surveys and such waiting around for the odd voucher is quite painstaking)! Congrats and I hope the online earning continues to go well. Let me in on the secret if you've got one, a quick fix preferably that doesn't require much skill/specialist experience on my part! :P

Well I don't only use the little paying sites. I work for actual clients at oDesk, which is my biggest income stream. Sure, I write for content sites, but that's an extracurricular activity.

Wow! That's great! It's just a matter of discipline really. I too went through the same problem before and I am also very fortunate to have been able to find online jobs where I can earn even more than what I used to. Now that I am working online, I can pay off my debts which I never imagined I would be able to do! Just take this for example - last December I was able to earn more than $500 on odesk. That was aside from the bonuses I received from my employers and my income from the writing jobs that I took. More or less I was receiving around $250 per week then. It was really great since I was able to buy a lot for the Christmas celebrations - for food and gifts. I'm really happy that I found a great way of earning online. If you like to write, I can send you the links through my website or you can check out my profile. This way, you can also earn more and have more options to choose from. Good luck! I have also added you as a friend here on mylot.

Wow! $500 sounds incredibly well, definitely like a sum I would love to earn! And maybe I will! I'll keep on working on oDesk and see where other jobs take me! Thanks for the response, and your story! It definitely gives me more fuel to work on my goals! (And thank you for adding me as friend here, I'm looking forward to getting to know you)

Thank you! In December I've made around $140 on oDesk with my writing and that's the only site that paid me right now as I hadn't met payout limits on Helium and Suite101. I hope to get more in January, so I'm staying optimistic and working hard. Good luck to you too!

Oh how I know it. There is no greater feeling then being able to make money from the comfort of your own home. I love waking up in the morning and checking my email to see if I have sold any thing. Or logging into my triond account to see how many hits I got while was sleeping. I have been to your profile and I see some thing that I am interested in. It's the book banner. I already know about share-a-pic and I plan on using sites like that for my seconds/rejects from the stock photo site that I am on. So tell me, does share-a-pic only accept original photos? By that I mean if I have the photo posted on another site, can I still post it on share-a-pic? All photos have been taken by me. Hey lets keep in touch.

I don't think shareapic has an exclusive policy, so as long as your photos are taken by you, you should be okay there. The Book banner is Book Depository, it's a online seller of books and such, that offers free worldwide shipping. The only reason I use it, really :)

To be perfectly honest, most of my earnings right now come from oDesk. I'm a writer there and I managed to secure some good jobs. And I always apply for new ones, so I can be sure to work at least once a month. And now that I actually paid a bill, I'm all that more enthusiastic about finding new revenue streams!
