United States
April 16, 2007 8:20am CST
Hi all mylot friends. I need a huge favor. In 6 weeks i will be bought out from the company that took over the place i worked for. So i will be unemployed, i do have some unemployment to cover my bills and such for awhile. The favor i need from mylot friends is this. Can my friends please either send me in a PM or here in this discussion site that you know pays to do the work? or even if you know of a blog or have a blog yourself that has sites that pays. If i can make some decent extra spending money i might be alright to make it through the summer and look for a real job. All i have right now is here, and i have to finish my 5 cha cha training sessions and hopefully can make some spare money there. Thanks to all my friends here

I would suggest that you look for a good real life job. Online jobs are not a substitute for the real jobs but if you're still single and no family to support maybe you could make this as part time earnings.

I am planning on that. But i also get unemployment, but the money i make online would be spare money to spend. The unemployment and the benefits i get from this company to buy me out would pay the bills, i need some fun money by working online thats all.

Well it's good to have online earnings but as for me until I find online earnings to be stable that's the only time I would decide to stop and concentrate my earnings online. It would be more convenient as working in real life where I have to go out just to work.

I wish I could help you out but I was wondering the same thing. What is cha cha? I've never heard of it before. They are laying off at my hubby's work too. 25 people per week until they get down to the amount that they need. At least its not like last time where they laid off 100 people at once. At least this way people can start looking for work that knows they are gonna get laid off. Good luck in finding some extra cash online. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Wish I could tell you some great ways to get more money. I have been UE since September and haven't found that magic venture either. Good luck to you.

I think if you have 6 weeks to plan, you would be better suited at spending that time sending out your resume and looking for a real job. NOTHING online can beat a regular steady paycheck. If you do the math, you earn pennies per hour at sites like this. There is no get rich quick scheme on the net, so don't waste your precious six weeks trying to earn an extra $30 per month. Start sending out your resume and get ready for interviews instead. best of luck.

i am planning on doing that but while i am looking and taking in unemployment, i am looking for places that i can earn extra money to spend, so that way all the unemployment and benefits i am getting from this company can go to bills, and i can earn extra spending money by earning online.

I agree with cassidy22's opinion. Your main motive must be to find out a decent regular job. For that you should be prepared. So better don't spent a lot of time on these online income schemes. All the best for finding a stable job.

I have heard that chacha is a wonderful way to earn. But it is not available to us Sri Lankans. They pay $5 per hour which is a days salary to many Sri Lankans, except of course the management levels and executives. My cousin went to USA for a martial arts tournament and went underground. Late he got down his two brothers too and are earning enough money to build mansions here. I just can't picture an American being unemployed.

I have a blog that includes some sites but it's fairly new and I have yet to really put everything I have on it due to lack of time. earnit.blog.com is the url if you want to take a look. Sorry to hear about your situation. Mine isn't exactly the same but lately my asthma has been uncontrollable and non responsive to certain preventive medications therefore disabling me from being able to work reguarly which is why I've been doing the online thing myself.

Rather than try and find a way to make fun money, look at your budget & your bills and see if there is ways that your can make savings. Money saved is money you don’t have to earn. I can understand while you are getting unemployment you plan on having a rest before job hunting again. You have 6 weeks before being unemployed, the more money you save now more you will have when you are not working.

Hi yvonne, I have recently joined another site referred by a friend. I will shoot the link to you through PM. You can check the details and FAQs first before signing up. I have to tell you though that earning though online takes a lot of hardwork and perseverance. The hubspages I've mentioned can give you good earnings if you will readily collaborate with me and with some other mylotters. Good luck!

I am really sorry to hear about your job. My website will definately be able to help you though. I make at least 50-200 everytime I sit in front of a computer for 2-5 hours. My website lists the website that I use along with payment proofs. I also run CASH CONTESTS(i am doing one right now) for a 15 MONEY ORDER!! Also I have a list of places you can signup for free samples (no offers to complete, just enter your mailing address) I hope all of these things really help you during your hard time.

You need to just go out and look around for a new job. You can try Burger King or any fast food place. They hire all the time. Who cares if it's not what you want, it pays and will get you by. You wont make it from myLot or any other paying site. Good luck!

I know the feeling as the same thing is happening to me in a sort of way. But at least I will be getting in a little bit of work, and even one day a fortnight isn't the end of the world. Maybe some of the other drivers will get new jobs, which will mean a little bit extra for those of us who do not. I do not want to work for another company, as this one now is close to home plus I am able to get time off to work on my small farm when I need it. My partner was trying to get into cha cha but has had no luck, due to them only allowing people to join who have an invite. So for us, she will continue to work at the couple of part time jobs she has. I will pick up some casual work sometimes we hope and if no work and not driving the truck, I will try to earn what I can online. Might have to tighten the belt, but you can do it too I am sure. Good luck and hope that you find what you need to get in that little bit of extra cash.
