I have to agree other people over celebrating their own success does not always help.
One of the best things about this forum is that people post their successes and failures honestly for all to see and learn from.
How else are we to identify what works and what doesn't and, if it does work, how much effort is required to achieve it? It removes the veil of secrecy that often hides the truth about online money making and that is a good thing.

If I hadn't read stories of other people saying that they earned zero as affiliate marketers for the first 3 months before things started to pick up, I might have quit at that stage and thought that it was just me failing to achieve.

Likewise, if Jon (and others) didn't post their monthly earnings at 63336 how would anyone that was considering this line of work get a true impression of what was possible?
Jon is ace at what he does. My monthly earnings were a mere £220, but I'm still learning and I was over the moon with it. You're right, there's no point in hiding the truth- as you can see there is quite a big difference between mine & Jon's earnings, but I'm pleased Jon posts his as it gives me something to work towards :)
The 63336 thing sounds like it takes a while to get used to the system and learn how to do responses quickly. I imagine smoke coming off his fingers as he frantically shares the latest celebrity gossip with mugs customers asking questions. I also bet has some great bookmarked pages to speed up the process too - like the different names for the male appendage that he was discussing a couple of weeks ago.
That tickled me.
As for the male appendage, the list Chammy gave me has some belters - heat-seeking moisture missile is my fave :)

Just out of interest that what would help keep you motivated in regards to this site, is there anything you would like to see that would help give you a push? or maybe something that you would want to see less of? - I am always up for an open discussion about how The Money Shed can help motivate people more.
Just an idea but a 'keep your chin up/feeling deflated/motivator' type thread related to online earnings where you can ask question/compare notes with others on where you might be going wrong could be useful. I know I don't particularly like posting if I'm experiencing bad results on a thread where most of the other posters are enjoying their success as I don't like I'm the doom and gloom merchant/dampening the spirits of others...

From my own point of view. I find this site very supportive. Everyone has the same goal, and different methods of achieving it. I find it useful but sometimes a bit depressing when I have not found my niche yet.

I don't like the nastiest and one up man-ship on hotdeals - although I check the site ALL THE TIME.
the green site is useful but sometime feels a bit middle class and big brotherly. I appreciate they are obscure observations but I can not articulate much better.

This sounds incredibly arrogant of me but my time is so precious I would not check this site or post my views if I thought it was a waste of my time. This the only forum I post on, my friends were shocked that I had joined a forum. I am not a fan of social media as historically an older former colleague started a Facebook campaign against me that included suggestions of violence. My crime I am stuck up and have too much money (yeah that is why I scrat around doing 10p surveys and my 99% of my children's presents come from hotdeals tip offs and Home Bargains!!! LOL)

Posting bad results is always a bit depressing, but it is necessary to maintain credibility and out of fairness to other people.

I was dreading posting my Month 4 IM results since my earnings dropped by about 1/4 - the ego was a bit dented. But, I find that when you do it, there are plenty of people on here to draw your attention to the positives and keep you going. The problem with just discussing it with friends and family is that they rarely fully understand what you're doing online.

With regard Party Plans with ref to Anne Summers and Bluebella. I think work better as a party from a punters point of view as I am far more likely to buy goodness know what with a couple of larger shandys inside of me and mates encouraging me to order something.

So it sounds from that that what you need to keep you going is a supportive culture. This site is full of people earning all different amounts of money in all manor of ways.

Some of the bloggers on here charge £50 for a guest post on their site, If I was them I would take that money and run each time, that is just the sort of income I would love to be able to earn where people are literally giving you money for your services.

Most online work is not well paid, it takes ages to make anything worthwhile. It took me a year to earn 20 pounds with inbox pounds big deal. I think pinecone are the best.
You can earn far more than £20 a year online, if you are working hard and earning that amount then you maybe need to re-evaluate and look and see if you need to change the methods you are using to earn money online.

Ergh. I'm struggling at the moment to try to furnish my new apartment whilst paying the bills. It's so difficult. Every little helps so I'm doing all that I can to get some spare cash. It's frustrating on days when the surveys dry up but I'm trying to remain motivated. I only have an iPad so I can't always complete surveys. Trying to get into Clixsense because everyone raves about it but it's seeming very difficult on the iPad. Not sure what else I can do with the time I have but will keep plugging away anyway.

download quickthoughts on the iPad - Earn itunes money ;)

Is there no way you can get a laptop - the cost of it would be written off with all that you can make from having a proper computer to use and earn money from.
