Hello to you if you are reading this post.

The reason I've started this thread is simple, it's so I can keep track of my earnings. Yes, I know I could do that on a simple spreadsheet on my computer, but as I've learnt a lot about earning money online from threads such as these, I thought I'd start my own diary to share my experience with others. I plan to do an update post each week (weekends) with running totals, and then a full summary monthly total at the end of each month.

I've been keeping a log of my earnings since the beginning of April, so here's the first fully summary monthly totals for the month of APRIL (2020).

April's Earnings: £177.26
So, what am I doing with these earnings I hear you ask? Well, I'm using it to invest in the stock market, and each month I transfer my earnings over to my Stocks & Shares ISA. I did the same thing last year and managed to transfer £2000 into a Stocks & Shares ISA, which I intend to use as my benchmark (bar) for this year.

Amount Transferred into the ISA this month: £150.00 - I like to transfer £50.00 chunks into the ISA, so I round DOWN to the nearest £50.00. It is not essential, but I just like round numbers!

TOTAL EARNINGS: £177.26 | TARGET £2000.00 (March, 31 2021)

Final Note: I'm only recording earnings from sites that offer actual cash (£ GBP, Euro or $ Dollar).

May Week 1: Earnings: £32.18
Summary Notes: Not the greatest of weeks, but there hasn't seemed to be much work on Appen / Clickworker which are a couple of my higher earners. Prolific has been good and I managed to partake in a couple of surveys which are multi-part, so I'm just keeping a lookout for Parts 2 & 3 etc., which the survey owners assure me I have guaranteed places on. That'll hopefully support next weeks earnings a little.

I also took part in a SliceThePie survey, for $5.00 which involved 17 little 20 second surveys over 3-4 days. This was easy money.

This week I have also signed up to FruitLab, which is a passive earning site, where you watch video's in return for PIPS. The pips are exchangeable for vouchers or PayPal apparently (1,000 PIPS = US$1), so I'm just seeing how that goes. I'm currently as 1474 PIPS.

Another Update next week! - Happy Earning!

May Week 2: Earnings: £94.63
Summary Notes: A better week this week, which was kick started by an Appen task which I bagged around 5 hours work, which was easy (but boring) clicking! I also took part in a screener survey for a focus group on Wednesday next week (through PanelBase). I have been accepted so if that goes ahead then I'd be likely to be paid £30 for around 60minutes worth of effort.

This week I have also signed up to two new sites, SerpClix and MicroWork (app). I'm finding both these really easy, and hopefully will add a few extra quid per week.

For those following this thread, I've given up with FruitLab, its tedious and I'm not convinced by the earnings just by watching video's. I may go back to it, but for now I'm putting a pin in it.

Another Update next week! - Happy Earning!

May Week 3: Earnings: £89.08
Summary Notes: Another good week this week, and I'm ahead of where I need to be. I mentioned last week that I'd had an invite to a focus group via. PanelBase which paid £30 for 60 minutes of my time, and I have to say little in the way of effort. I have also had a good week with Clickworker, and have done a number of high paying tasks.

This week, I have also been testing out Streetbees and have earned £8.20, this seems to be straight forward and uses a great little iPhone app. I love the simplicity of the app and it very easy to use. It pays out direct to PayPal as soon as they submission is approved. This I'm going to stick at I think and will hopefully help keep the average up.

Next week is month-end, so keen to see where I end up, especially as I'm higher that last month already and its only end of week 3!

Another Update next week! - Happy Earning!

May Week 4: Earnings: £56.32
Summary Notes: Not a bad week, but lower than I'd have liked. Its been for me a little mixed and I'm waiting on a few tasks on Appen to register the work this week which is brought down my average for the week. The highest amount earned this week was from Clickworker, as I had a couple of eye tracking surveys which pay €15.00 each!

I have signed up to Neevo this week as I've been reading on this forum that some people are finding this to be a good earner, I've taken a test and achieved a good score, so here's hopping that site will make the weekly list going forward.

So it is month end, so the final totals are in; May's Earnings: £272.21

Amount Transferred into the ISA this month: £250.00

TOTAL EARNINGS: £449.47 | TARGET £2000.00 (March, 31 2021)
