What are your online earning goals in July?

I have not been working actively online since my baby was born, as I don't have much energy to write. I am tempted to buy a few books from book depository again, as I think those are some good reading books suitable for my eldest son. This motivates me to work a little bit harder in order to earn the money to buy the books online. The total of the books are about $30, for 3 books. I have already redeemed $10 from ClixSense, $5 from EasyHits4U and also ForumCoin this month. So I hope I can reach $5 in mylot and chatabout by end of this month. I am planning to earn 10 cents in mylot and write 20 comments in chatabout daily, then I will be able to reach the minimum payout this month. It might be good to have a goal to motivate me as I am quite lazy and tired to work online lately. What's your online earning goal for this month? Do you set any earning goal in mylot?

Yes, I know I will be busy with my children, especially my baby. But while I am nursing or carrying my baby, I can actually use the computer, but just sometimes too lazy or no energy to use one hand to write. Now, I am motivated to earn a little bit more so I can give myself the excuse of buying the books for my children. Sometimes I feel guilty for buying too many books.

@kaka135 Hehe. That is good you are able to multi-task. I cannot imagine how it'll be balancing with three children. Keep up the great work, the kids would love the books though!

@infatuatedbby I am still finding the balance and learning how to take care of three children together with other work. I really enjoy spending time with the children, but I'd like to work and also have a little me time too. I am too greedy.

@miniam I usually surf for 15 second sites, though the credit is only half, my concern is to earn the cash reward, so I am fine with lesser credits.

Your online earning status is very good I don't do it so well since lately I am not active in Mylot. I have to prepare for our trip in August. So I think in these two months I will not earn much online. But that's OK. At least I have fun.

Thanks. It's because I stay at home almost all the time, and I don't have a full time job, it's good for me to earn a little bit extra, so I can buy some books or any educational resources. Enjoy your Summer trip! Where are you going?

@ShyBear88 That's good. One of the reasons I like about mylot is that we might still be able to earn even when we are away.

I wonder if there is a way to get books cheaper. I do not buy books now, since visiting the library is more convenient than going to the bookshop to buy books or to buy books online and then wait for delivery. I think many parents do not buy new books either. They wait till library has a sale (to depose of old books) and then they will go there to buy a lot of books for very low price.

It's good if there is a good library nearby. I wish I can find a good library with good English books that are suitable for my children, but I have not find one yet. Many parents I know buy a lot of books to their children, though they might not buy books and read, especially picture books when their children are still young. We usually go to those book fairs and buy books, as the books are usually cheaper. I do not mind buying old books.

@kaka135 I think you can check out Taobao to see if they have English storybooks. I think they have, but the paper quality is not as good, though the price is much lower.

@scheng1 I have not spend much time on Taobao, as there are too many shops out there. I only shopped there once, to buy some yarns. Perhaps I should spend some time there as well, though I don't really like shopping, even online shopping.

@kaka135 Unless I'm wrong, referrals don't do anything for you at easyhits4u except to earn that 10 cents once they surf 100. You do earn a percentage of their credits too though.

@marsha32 well, that site was just too low for me and didn't want to go back there again, ever.

I don't have earning goals here on myLot. However, on Upwork and other translation sites, I set goals every month.

You are working on Upwork? It's good that it works well for you. I have heard it's a good site, but I haven't really spend time setting up my portfolio yet. Good luck to you!

@kaka135 Yes, been with Upwork since last year. Even now that I'm back with my regular job, still I do remote projects on Upwork on weekends. Yep, it works for me. I heard some find it difficult to compete with other freelancers on that site. I guess that depends on the category.

It's always better to have faster Internet connection, especially when we are working online or using Internet a lot. Hope you will reach your goal very soon. How much do you need to pay for the Internet connection monthly?
• Calgary, Alberta
22 Jul 16
@kaka135 30 US dollars is the average but I will go for a 60 us dollar connection now. I am done with data caps and slow internet.

Hi! It is nice to see you again. I joined Chatabout before but already forgot my log in information there. I hope you can achieve your target earnings for the month of July. I am looking forward to have my pay out in Mylot. I hope I can gain more than $5 so I can replace the money I used in my paypal to buy a domain. Hoping to earn at least $10. That means, I need to think a lot of discussion and be more active in here.

Do you not like chatabout? I am not always active there, but I do like to visit there once in a while, as the site does pay me. I am reaching 1000 points ($5) in chatabout, perhaps I will be able to cash out tomorrow. Now I just need to spend more time on mylot and hopefully I will be earning $1 in 10 days. Are you setting up your own business online? Good luck in your goal too. Hope you will be able to spend the money you earn here to get a domain.

@kaka135 I like chatabout but I have been too busy with many things that I just chose to stick to mylot. Congratulations for reaching the threshold in chatabout. I do not have any business online. I would just like to write so I put up my own blog. I just bought a domain and it is around $9. I can have it back to my paypal for 1 to 2 payouts here in Mylot.

I don't set goals on here but it is probably a good idea. I can imagine it is hard for you with a new baby and older children to look after.

Here in mylot i dont have any goal in terms of earning money,i just want to have friends but in my other online job my goal is to earn $200 to $500 for this months because I am going home and want my family go out with me to eat and do shopping.

I did not set a goal for this month because I know I cannot reach it. I'm a bit busy this month I can't have more time in here.
