My total now stands at £255.12.

- MTurk: £43.28
- Proofreading: £21.13

With an extra £250 or so on its way towards the end of the month, I've now reached my £500 target :). However, I'd like to make more than that, so onwards and upwards.

Current total: £278.68

I've been meeting the daily target I set myself this week, which I'm pleased with. Setting a daily target has been useful. Getting more into a daily routine has been useful.

My total's gone up to £304.95:

- Proofreading: £18.78

- Neevo: £7.49

I recently moved so haven't stuck to my daily target over the past few days, but I'll be back at it tomorrow.

Update:

My total now stands at £608.14 :)(previous total: £304.95).

What contributed to the new total:

- Customer support: £241.77

- Proofreading: £43.42

- MTurk: £18.00


I've been doing more customer support work since last month, so getting paid more (was half that before).

The MTurk pay's from work I did about a month ago that got approved.


There's not likely to be any other money coming through for me between now and the end of the month (Saturday), but you never know. :)


(Update: Nothing else came in, so £608.14 was my final total. Really pleased with that.)

New month, new chance to challenge myself. I'm aiming for £600 this time. If I did it last month, I can do it this month.

Setting a daily target really worked for me last month. I didn't set it til after the middle of the month, but it made a difference. I looked at how much I wanted to make by the end of the month and spread it over the rest of November.

Weekends tend to be quiet for me online, so I'll set a weekday daily target and see what's possible at the weekends. There's also the Christmas holidays so I'll play that by ear.

I'm getting a $50 bonus this month, so that will definitely help with my total. :)


My December total so far: £58.55 (proofreading).

Good luck - sounds like some structure is really helping you along :D Well done on last month!

You mention the holidays - do you expect that to be a useful time for earning (time off traditional work?) or detrimental (too many other things happening?)? Just wondering!

@Peaches: Thanks for the congrats and luck :) .

Holidays: it could be either, but it's down to me at the end of the day, really.

So far, I've made £86.58 (proofreading). It would have been more but my keyboard's no longer working (spilt tea on it), so I've been making do with the inbuilt keyboard for the past few days. It's been somewhat of a drag to use as I'm not working at my usual pace, but at least I have it to use. Can't afford a new keyboard at the mo', but will be buying one first chance I get.

Still focused on meeting my daily target. Didn't reach it on Tuesday as that's when my keyboard ran into problems, but I reached it yesterday and plan to today. Just involves organising myself a bit better and being more focused. Plus the more I use the inbuilt keyboard, the better/quicker I'll get at using it.

I've also been doing more tasks on Neevo as it doesn't require a keyboard (my laptop's a touchscreen) and a few tasks here and there on MTurk.

Update:

It's getting to be a drag using the inbuilt keyboard. It's slowing me down and affecting my daily earnings. I'll make do for the time being, but it's not really productive for proofreading.

Saying that, I'm grateful for what I've been able to make. My total now stands at £114.96.

Update:

I've been reaching my proofreading target for the past three days which I'm pleased with. I was also starting to get tired of using the touch keyboard, but I tweaked my work strategy a bit which has been helping. Using the touch keyboard is a short-term thing, but it's shown me what's possible when I have to make do. I look forward to the difference when I do get a proper keyboard again, with gratitude to the gift of contrast.

Today was also a good day on MTurk. I had a nice batch of tasks that made my $15.00. They've all been approved too.

*Current total: £163.84/£600 (previous: £114.96/£600)

(* all from proofreading for now)

Haven't updated in almost a week. I'm doing okay online, but I've lost some of my focus/mojo, so haven't been hitting my daily target.

I'm back in the UK for a bit, so I've been exploring a few online opportunities I don't usually have access to such as Prolific (I made over £10 on it on Thursday. :))

Next week is about refocusing and making as much as I can by payday on the 27th and by the end of the month. I will be enjoying Christmas, but I also want to work online over the Christmas period.


Current total: £287.13/£600 (previous: £213.88/£600)

My total's now £327.04.

I think I'll reach my £600 target. It's payday tomorrow and that should push me over £600. If not, I'll look to Prolific to see what I can make by the end of the month.

That's really impressive, well done! May I ask which customer support company you work for?

Oh cool, I proofread with them as well. In fact, that's where most of my income comes from. Just being nosy, but how do you get into customer support with them?

BTW, in terms of your main income streams, we seem to be completely matching! :)

@cnorton: Awesome re: matching income streams! Lol!

One-off position. They were looking and I was at the right place at the right time.

Hello,

I'm going to end this thread - end of the year, end of the decade - it's apt for me to.

I haven't decided if I'm going to start a new thread. We'll see.

Wishing us all an amazing 2020 and decade. :)

Peace out.
