    Money/Share Diary

    Good luck and keep going, I have been following this path for 10 years and prior to that, I was just saving normally. The dividends for the last year haven't been great but that has to be expected.

    Is it worth shopping around at different supermarkets?

    I didn't exactly do that but when things were tight I used to shop in the cheapest supermarket which for us was Morrisons, and then I also had a Costco membership so got a lot of other things like tea, biscuits, toiletries, pasta in bulk which saved us money.

    Appen [OT] Appen Work Opportunities

    You can try to take the picture of just the box and see if they contact you back. I have always taken stuff out of the box to photo. The only other thing is to think if anyone you know would enjoy it for a birthday gift (hence save on buying another present) or sell it on eBay.

    Question / Discussion Freelance request - Is this racist? (Any chance of a quick answer please?)

    @mulamula I hope you have not felt unwelcome here? This site isn't super busy. I only come on every few days and only look at the most recent posts so things can easily be overlooked by most of us. I honestly believe most people here are friendly and try to help. On this thread, I also think...

    Question / Discussion Freelance request - Is this racist? (Any chance of a quick answer please?)

    I see what you are saying but I suspect you are giving them the benefit of doubt they do not deserve. It is like the question 'where are you from?'. Intent matters. Some people will say it and it is just a question of genuine interest but others say it because they are trying to 'other' the...

    Question / Discussion Podcasts - Specifically Anchor

    I'll throw in a few insights on Patreon. Again not mine but one of my kids has a bunch of patreons, she offers them early access/previews of content and also does streams via Twitch showing them work in progress and answering questions plus their names appear on the videos. There is also a...

    I don't have a channel myself but my kids do and they suggest you find a trending topic within your niche and make a video about that.

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    And vice versa, sadly! I have seen some really angry comments about people choosing to wear masks in parks etc! We are going to have to find a way to respect each other's choices even if we don't understand or like them!

    Just heard from a friend that some areas have gone back into a loose lockdown including parts of London, although there has been no major announcement just changes to official advice!

    Question / Discussion Rate your money-making attempts!

    As if to prove my point, I've just been called into a quality audit, while they do this, I can't work. This is despite passing every monthly quality audit since I started on it over a year and a half ago! Fingers crossed it all goes well but once again shows the precarious nature of this type of...

    Question / Discussion Rate your money-making attempts!

    Appen - 7/10, if you can get on a long-term project then this can be a good source of income. However, the wait can be long and projects can end abruptly. The support isn't great and chat is a mixed bag. Crisp - 6/10, there is generally always some work available. However, the waiting list is...

    Nothing ventured nothing gained although it's much harder to make money on youtube these days with the stricter criteria for monetization.

    Is Personal Development important?

    Yes it is important and I often think the best thing, a person can get out of it is to realise that being the best you is the goal, not comparing yourself with others or being better than others. This has the added bonus of being less judgemental I hope!

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    For me, the question is why is our quarantine system not fit for purpose? How has the variant been allowed to spread here? Quarantining from red countries has to be more rigorously applied at our entry points. It doesn't have to turn into a mini prison experience if done sensibly and...
