Still lookin and getting frustrated.............
June 12, 2008 11:46am CST
I have had my internet at home sinds late march and i'm still lookin for a way to earn a good amount of honest cash on the net. So far i haven't earned a dime and it looks like there are only scams and scammers out there. Isn't there any way to earn money on line without having to pay something up front? Please anybody give me a couple of good hints and sites.

Hi fataal I can sympathise with your frustration. Trust me: lots of us have been there. As in the real world, there are scams on the net, but there are also genuine ways of making money online too. I make mine through freelance writing (writing articles, maintaining blogs for people, etc), and believe me, before that, I was just as frustrated as you are. People are into different things, so you'd have to make a list of what you enjoy doing, then hop on the net for ideas and inspiration. Visit sites like bloggernoob.com, problogger.com, mydebtfreegoal.com, bloggingexperiment.com, lifeiscolourful.com and universitykid.com to get an idea of the possibilities. As you visit these sites, go through their blogroll as there might be links to other sites that may interest you. Whatever you do, even though you might feel like giving up at times, DON'T. Network with like-minded people for support (e.g., forums). take care and good luck...

Yes I know what you mean.. Its like a fish market out there online and everyone shouting to see who will be interested to hear what they have to offer. I enjoy making money online because it is obviously the most convenient way to earn .. no need to spend money on transport, no rent to pay and above all. you get to spend time with the family and really live a homely lifestyle together. Also it is really sad to watch a computer sitting idle when you can actually make full use of it to earn money right from the comfort of your own home. And the best part is.. once you know how to go about it there are many .. almost unlimited free resources you can tap into online to start earning money with little or no investment at all. The biggest problem is finding the right online business which can allow you to do all that. And it is sometimes very frustrating to watch a whole swarm of so called business opportunity emails arriving at your inbox once you start to join the opt in mails system that is out there. So where do you start?Mylot is a good place to get started anyway. but you will also need additional income streams so that all combined they will allow you to earn a better monthly income. My own desire to build this kind of online income stream is reflected in my keen interest to be self sufficient. I always long to spend more time to work on my gardening and self sufficiency programs and that is partly possible due to funding from our online businesses. As for hints and sites, maybe you can check my profile for links to possible sites and programs you can try out. good luck!

Hey , Sometimes, it is hard to come across sites you can trust to make extra. Mylot is good , but it will take you about 2 months to earn around $50 . I write for this one site called Ac and most times with an upfront payment you make between !.00 and 4.00 sometimes higher ( you can look thru their list ) here is the site http://www.associatedcontent.com/

Just like you, I have been frustrated with some of the internet sites which promise to pay. But I believe that mylot is not one of those scams and that mylot really pays. One proof of this is the hundreds of mylotters who have confirmed payment here. It's great to hear other people's confirmation of actual payment particularly here in mylot. I myself have a total earnings of 15.92 US dollars at present but I haven't encashed it until now. Actually, I recently decided to accumulate it to more than the minimum payout of ten dollars for two personal reasons. First, I want to claim a higher amount so that I could use it to pay a higher partial amount on our outstanding credit card bill. And second, I don't know if I will be required to open an account with a local bank. Naturally, I have to undertake an initial deposit if this is the case. I've got to admit that at the moment, my husband and I have no excess funds which we could spare for this purpose. I'm currently experiencing some problems with my Paypal account and I haven't informed myLot regarding this matter. Anyway, I'd advise you to do the best you can here in mylot; posting your own discussions, responding to others' posts, being able to add images in the long run for additional earnings; and eventually encashing your earnings and enjoying and staying here in the mylot community. Best of luck and regards.

fataal please try Mysurvey as you rack up one thousand points very quickly and that gives you ten dollars which you can get in about four weeks after you ask for it, and I have made atleast seventy dollars so far this year from them. they always pay and its all so easy to do and fun also.
