After a lot of time figuring out where I want to be in my money making journey, I have decided that the best way to keep track of earnings and learn to blog (at the same time) will be great to look back in and also see how each month has hopefully made me a little richer.
Also I love reading these and get lots of information from them. They really helped me understand how everyone starts off.
I’m currently working part time at a children’s home, which works out 2 x 15 and half hour days so I have 5 days to do my at home work. I have 2 children under 4 and a husband that is hardly every about from working so much. But this is me and I will be determined to earn at least £1000 a month.

So here is to the start of my better money make journey....

So yesterday a quick overlook of the day, I have logged all my apps, online profiles, users names and email addresses I have used to sign up to the hopefully better earning companies. (I will detail below all that I will be trying.

I was on a project on Appen which after 6 weeks has finished so I’ve put my invoice in at £95.50 which I will see around 14th November.

I managed to get a website test completed and waiting payment for this which will be $10. But if a slow day as had both kiddies and they were being very bossy.

I’ve always wanted to do a day in the life type blog, mixed with tips and life hacks, but from a mums point of view. I have loads of information just need to type it out and publish it. I love watching and reading these myself so I think it would be great to do also love to read back on these as memories.

Few days in and its been very slow considering all the different options i have listed, i'm not sure if its just how I've managed my time or its just slow.

Ok so lets start from Monday... first of set my self 3 hours to get a head start on the week, manage £20, which isn't too bad but i've set my self a £50 a day (over 5 days) target. So to start with i wrote out my to do list for the day, complete any sign ups, tests that needed doing and open up some of the higher paying website so ready to click on.
I also had a email saying ive been banned from an Appen project for not completing my full hours one week. was bring in a nice £350 a month so pretty gutted about that, but hey got to be in a lot of pies
i keep reading on here.

I managed a few higher paying surveys my favorite - Prolific, but these were very quick surveys, i got 2 requests for a test site and that was my day, picked my children up from nursery and was all of a sudden was hit by 5 test requests and a very high test (£70) which was to be scheduled in for Wednesday (today).

i hope to learn a little with an idea when these test site sent out their requests, so i'm more than ready for them and then easy hit my target a day.

Tuesday was my normal work work but spent most of the day in a walk in center with a child of look after so managed a few surveys and completed 2 sign ups for chat services.
i had put a few things on ebay
and market places and managed a few sales bring my balance to an extra £17... Win Win

Today i've had to cancel my (£70) test hope it doesn't effect other tests, due to a poorly child, but still can have my lap top open with dashes to there every now and again, so i manged £25 so far today, 4 new sign ups for the test of my list on money making companies and also i few new projects loaded on Appen.
so not the best start to the week but I'm learning as i go and i guess thats the best way.

So far £62

It can take a while for the higher paying stuff to kick in so don't feel downhearted.

Surveys you can just sign up and do!

Things like appen etc take longer but pay more in the long run!

Everything seems to be heading in the right direction for you anyway!

its been i slow week as ive had 2 poor babies and myslef ill, so not had much time to get online to do work, but ive tried my best to do something productive each day, just to keep myself a float.
so i've been doing an hour a day of the chat work and today i did my training for cloud workers which i passed! yey, so that's regular work a week i will be doing, not the best money but adds up in my pocket.

i started Body shop as it was only £25 to join and i've pt all my products on ebay and i'm £166 in profite so all good, im a new 'ebayer'
i have continued to apply for projects on appen but after a few questionnaire i keep failing them i have 3 more projects so i'm learning as i go, i have also started using my referral links to scope out a few new people with opportunities so not got anything as of yet but waiting to the process to be completed.

so over all good but not earned as much as i would of liked, here to a better week next week with a more organised schedule!

Going forward and new year new you I have had a few set back and the project I was on come to an end like they do, but on a good note I received an email asking to join a new project which I did right away same as grasshopper passed the qualifying test so now do same 20 hours a week in this project. Looking at earning my first full pay this month. Fingers crossed. To add to the job list I have also started a job with Lionbridge which I came across on work market. Not some thing I really know much about and still figuring out how to earn in there but got an email from Lionbridge about rating ads which I do once a day for an hour. So adding an extra £350 to my online pennies on top of the £900 from Appen,
Still doing the chat work which only plus in £150 a month (Cloudworkers) finding this boring and not really getting much from time out in but adds up and something to fall back on.
Once I have her my first target I will hopefully look into match betting as a side gig.
2020 here I come and all that.

So I feel bad I haven’t kept to updating weekly like I thought I would but I’ve had to have some time to myself and sort my own head out, but I’m all good now and back to keeping updated hopefully weekly!
But just to point out I haven’t stopped earning online while I’ve been off I’ve been trying out new ways to earn and having a play about with other money making opportunities.

So some work projects I thought would keep me earning have dropped and I had to find other ways to make up for it, I started sorting out things to sell in my home and going to local charity shops and have sold a lot of items! It has come quite addictive!
But I have set it in my head that I need to sort my house out so it’s a ‘kill 2 birds with one stone’ type money earner, I’m sorting my house out, selling and also putting that money back into my house.
Then every now and again I will find a few bits In a charity shop and put that on.
It’s still a learning curve but I enjoy it and it gets me out the house as well.
So I’m currently working on:

Lionbridge ad rater which gives me $98 a week.

Appen new project these have been slow with work and having a lot of problems with projects and their site but seems to be back to normal I hope so on a good 15+ Hours a week project £600+ a month. But as always these end.

I am checking emails daily and any opportunity that comes through I will quickly jump on if I have time like intellizoom, prolific. I have also looked into you tube and uploaded a video of how to work from home on a certain site 100 views so far!

I have made a new list of new apps and site to try this week which I will update on how I get on.

These are:
Copify
Play test cloud
Focus force
Code3
Pingpong
Podengo
Neevo
Teepublic

And I have just got an email today about being on the waiting list for a chat site.

Cloud workers and chat from home terminates my contract over Christmas because I was having time off due to family situations and yet I just couldn’t get my head back into it in January.

So hope it’s helped where I am at!

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
