So a busy week signing up for everything! I've joined up with Roamler and have just about completed all the tasks bar one to get to level 2. Felt really bad as I had my first banana check rejected lol but had another go and that one was fine. Looking forward to doing other tasks with that.

Signed up today with Leapforce and have finished the application and the initial timed questions, so just waiting to see if I was good enough to hear back from them.

Remembered I used to have an account with Panelbase, so logged into there and found £15 sitting in my account. Have done several more surveys since and I'm up to £23 now.

Signed up with Spare5 as well and just finished the qualification tasks and done some 20c descriptions and so far got up to $5, enjoying that as it doesn't really seem like work.

Not really getting on with Swagbucks. Installed the plugin to my browser, but it keeps making it hang and crash, so had to uninstall it.

Be back next week, with hopefully more news!

[member=362]Kelzky[/member] thanks, slowly getting there, it's really interesting having a look at everything on here and seeing what I might be interested in. This forum has been the best thing I've ever found!

Sounds like you are doing well. I'm also enjoying finding info out from here, I'm still trying to find what works for me and what doesn't. I'm not really into a proper routine yet :)

Thanks [member=1619]SarahLu[/member] hoping I can gradually build up :)

Happy to report that I've finally made level 2 on Roamler after failing the quiz twice lol, so looking forward to being able to get more of the paid tasks starting from Monday and received my first lot of money from Spare5 yesterday too. It was only £3 but it's a start and came from the qualification tasks, so hopefully they went ok and I can get more from them, I really like that app.

I knew I'd made a start on a diary a long long time ago lol, didn't realise it was quite that long ago!

Having ill children, going through an ASD diagnosis with my youngest and being ill myself has meant that I've done very little of anything over the last few years, but that has now got to change.

After making it to a level 2 on Roamler as I can see above, I ended up not being able to do anything with it for quite some time and got my account completely deactivated so I'm starting again from scratch and cannot get through to level 2 this time :D for some reason, one of the tasks seems completely beyond my comprehension.

Anyway, after dabbling a bit with MB last year but not really doing much with it, I've decided to give it a proper go this year and see where it takes me.

I've also decided to take the plunge and start up a blog in the hopes of monetising it at some point although I know that's going to take a lot of time and effort to get to that stage, we all have to start somewhere and all of this will be in the middle of trying to accomplish an HNC at college.

Crikey you sure have got a lot going on!

What’s your HNC In?

Great time for you to get back into matched betting since Cheltenham is now less than 10 WEEKS AWAY and who wants to miss out on all the money that brings!!!

Makes for an exciting life!

It's an HNC in Travel and Tourism. I used to do admin but office stuff just wasn't for me, so I need to retrain for something else unless I can actually get a decent income coming in from home that is, which is something I want, but it's good to have a back up plan. Another string to the bow as my dad used to say!

Nothing quite that exotic I'm afraid! I wish! With 3 kids, 2 with additional needs, I need to stay closer to home, so probably a guide in one of the Historic Scotland or National Trust properties or even a tour guide on coach tours round Scotland would do me.

The kids go back to school tomorrow, so I'm going to use the time I have free to try and get a blog started. I at least have a name for it, so that's a plus :D

Going to try and attempt the level 2 Roamler task that I've failed again. Might have to resort to a magnifying glass though as I can't see the pictures properly on my phone - note to self, get eyes tested - and hopefully then I'll have a better chance.

Also signed up to a couple of Mystery shopping companies this weekend, so I'll be able to see what is around in my area, that's if I ever have any free time to complete anything!

What’s the blog going to be about then?

Parenting and living in Scotland. We live near several of the islands and visit lots of historic properties, so I'm hoping to blog about our trips and life with additional needs kids.

I know there are loads out there, I just need to hope I can offer something a little different to stand out a bit. I just need to work out how to get it out there and noticed now. No pressure then :)

I think a blog like that would do well. People are ALWAYS looking to travel north to Scotland and are looking for nice places to stay and things to do!

Like you've said you've just got to get it out there which I'm afraid WILL involve ploughing away at social media and upping your SEO game!

That's good to know! We've travelled to most of the major islands already so it would be nice to be able to write from a tourist point of view.

Now I just need to work out what an SEO is, how to use it and join in the game! I already have Twitter and Instagram accounts in the name of the blog I'm going to create with a few hundred followers so I guess I'm on my way with that at least :)

After redoing my level 2 Roamler task and failing again, I managed to work it out! No more XP tasks sitting on there though, so I guess I need to wait for some more appearing. No paid tasks I can do in my area, which is a pain, so it's the waiting game for that.

back in the good old days they used to have flower check tasks come on every Thursday morning.. Don't know if that's still a thing or not..
