Online money insufficient

Malaysia
January 3, 2013 7:41am CST
Are your earnings more than the amount of money that need to pay bills at the end of the month? I am curious like you all, I earn online and the money is only enough to pay my internet bills. Sometimes I give up earning online because I always lack of money. Do you experience this situation?

Hi I am not dependent on online money for paying bills as of now. of course the money earned online is not so much either. But i am not spending any on my online earned money now It just goes to the bank from paypal. I thought of using it when i dont have any money and when i actually require it.

It is always not enough, choiyee. But then I don't only depend on my online earnings to survive. I will always look for other things to do offline as well that I can work from home. Recently a lawyer friend of mine has hired me to help him out with his company which he took over from someone else. I think it's great cause he allows me to work from home and I only need to go into the office 3 times a week in the morning session. Apart from that, I have also just started my online business not long ago selling cross-stitch. It's my hobby and something that I like to do. So you see, there are always ways to look for income. Don't even think about giving up. We all just need to go all out to search for it.

Nope,every month i can't cover even the cost of my network from online jobs.I don't find any jobs that i can completely give financial supports to myself.Also there are so many oppurtunities available for other countries rathere than yous and mine.So this problem seems more difficult for me like you.I hardly earn ten to twenty dollars a month but can pay bills or meet my requirments to fulfill at the end.

You mean ten to twenty dollars are able to meet your requirements every month? That's nice!

hi, money is always hard to come by. be it online or offline. one should always have different sources of money to ensure some diversity. i tried hard to earn online but realized it quite convincingly that it is not enough. i agree with you and i am completely at par with you in this regards

I agree with you that one should always have different sources of income. We cannot only depend on online earnings in order to survive unless one already has a fixed and steady virtual employer who gives lots of work on a daily basis.

true, however, if the fixed jobs gives you no time to spare then one can not indulge in diversity as well....it becomes tough.

hi there wongchoiyee, there are times my funds are not sufficient to sustain some of my expenses. though this things happens, i am still confident that my online earnings will soon be higher. especially now that the new year starts, hence, i want to be positive in all of my online gigs. as much as possible, i want to be optimistic in this field since i don't have any offline job.

It is never easy to earn online. It is even harder to earn sufficiently to pay any bills. At least that is what in my case. I have a day job so that may be a reason why I don't or couldn't really put in all my efforts in doing online tasks to earn. But I feel that I will never be able to survive just from my online earnings. I can only consider it as my part time earnings.

That means you have other income besides online to survive, right?

Yes. That is the reason why I sometimes worried of what would I do to my earn money, but I said to myself that there is hope. All that I earn is I am going to invest it to make it big.

Honestly, MyLot covers one bill and sometimes not even that! I have a lot of bills so this definitely does not cover all of them. But I enjoy being here and it earns a little extra so that is why I stay. I would never give up on MyLot, even once I get a job I will still come here when I am off...

Well for me my earnings online are probably only enough to pay internet bills. It is hard to say because I'm widely spread out from trying to do this off and on through out the years. At this time I am weeding out the garbage as I push on with the stuff that does work, but honestly I will not quit and neither should you. I once had a mentor in the offline business world and he would say that you make it work or you get out. So when it comes to making money online I choose to make it work.

Sometimes the amount that I earn online is not enough because the flow of earnings is not on time. So I need some investment or more site to work with to have more resources and the flow of income will continue. This is my technique to have a sufficient income to cover all the expenses that needs to pay

Yes, I agree with you. Earning online is not enough to sustain our financial needs and everyday costs of living . I just do have fun in here Mylot and not actually thinking for the earning. I know for the very first time that it is really difficult to earn more than I need in here and other paying sites online.

Just like you my earnings is enough only for my internet bill. I cannot spend more time here because I am busy also with my offline business. During idle time no customers at the shop, that's the time I post and read discussions. If I don't have any job at all, maybe I can earn more than I need for different bills

until now my blogs and mylot contribute highest to my online earnings and rest of the other sites are only in cents. i am focusing more on blogs, they give me higher pay than any other sites. also working for article writing, need to see how they work for me. if i can get through it then it can surpass this two ways of making money...

besides doing a few sies on the net, I am on a fixed income. If it werent for the fixed income, I would really be in bad shape. I don't make all that much money online, and I hope to make more in time, but for right now, I am thankful I make anything at all. It is just so hard to make much online, as ther are a lot fo scams out there, and it is hard to know which sites are legit and which ones aren't. I have been scammed before, so I am leery to join sites that i am not sure of, as sites will star out okay, and end up going scam down the line. I will just keep on keeping on and hope for the best. Take care, and have a good day.

I do not come here to just make money, for making money everybody has some professional skills, so do I. I come here to talk to people who have some new ideas and are willing to share, no matter how much they earn. I know Mylot since last three years and it is the only one website which made me stay here. I have not earned here money to pay my bills but still I am here because I interact with so many people from the different countries. The views which the people give here are unbiased and true to their knowledge. If you want to earn online for making a living then you have to enter into a website like odesk and then try your professional skills there. That is what I have heard about odesk, but I have not worked with it, so do your homework first.
