Good idea that. And it would make a fine new year's resolution - To explore some new sites and try something different.

£350 for me please.

First time poster, but I'm in - aiming for £500 over and above my 'day job' (which is already freelance and mildly precarious...) earnings.

Hi everyone, i havent posted here in such a long time what with the little devils/cherubs :)
i used to do the website testing before but having to work around the kids is a different ball game this time.
Lovely january means i need to make some cash and im excited to get back in the game and work my way through the list of jobs- thanks @katykicker

Im aiming for £200. Im would be so chuffed with this, but £200 right now seems impossible.

Hey there!

Great to see you joining the challenge! Do you have any ideas for how you are going to smash that £500 target!

Hi Jon,

I'm going to give a couple of new things a try each month from the list above. I'm also going to sell some of the crap I've got lying around the house. I'm feel like I'm drowning in stuff, so I reckon this will take me most of the year!
