Thank you. I have a lot of reading to do!
ironically I would say DON'T READ TOO MUCH!

It makes everything sounds far more confusing than it needs to be compared to just clicking the banner above and doing the free trial and LEARNING BY DOING!!! ;)

That might be a good idea actually, I tend to overthink things.

Hi folks,

I just joined :) I have a chronic illness and can only work part-time, but recently it's become so stressful it's making my health worse. I've been doing survey sites for years, but am looking to see if I can boost my income enough to risk taking a sabbatical. In-person jobs where I live are hard to come by, and I have very few marketable skills. I came upon this site by accident, but it seemed like a good place to start looking for new ideas!

Hey @Jaxcat

Fantastic to have you on here and posting!!

Great to see you are looking to move on from survey sites! They are fine for cutting your teeth in the online earnings world but aren't any good I don't think if you want to earn a sizeable chunk of cash each month without driving yourself crazy in the process lol

Hi all,

I have a large interest only mortgage which I need to clear in 58 months. I tried Matched Betting a few years ago and didn't quite get it and I ended up putting some in of my own money. I work full time and fairly long hours but I am determined to clear the mortgage in record time! I have cancelled some direct debits, cleared out some savings jars and have paid off an additional £137.00 in the past couple of days. Really looking forward to looking at all the opportunities here.

Hey @Mrseeg

Fantastic to have you on here and posting, do you have a ball park figure for how much you are looking to earn online each month?

I need to make at least an additional £1,500 per month. I have a milestone birthday tomorrow - the big six oh - and found a fabulous bargain to Vienna as my birthday present. (£447 in total, 4 nights 4 star hotel with breakfast, flights included. It would have been rude not to). It is my last holiday for a while and DH and I are off there on Tuesday but when I return on Saturday it is all hands to the pump. Can I do a diary '58 months to get my interest only mortgage only cleared? Whisper it.... the current balance is £202, 086.49

£1500 a month should be do-able but crikey are you going to have to diversify!

Hi everyone! I'm Emma and I run My Debt Diary :) I've only had the blog up and running since July so everything's still very new to me, but the Debt total is going down now that I'm focused and that's what matters! Looking forward to getting stuck into the Money Shed forums!

Hello

I'm new here. Thanks to everyone on the forums for the tips for apps to use to earn money. I'm about to sign up to Be My Eye. It asks for an optional referral code. Did someone benefit if I use a code from an existing user? If so, does anyone want to give me a referral code?

Hey @ScottishLady
Fantastic to have you on here and posting.

Might be worth you asking this question in the BeMyEye thread (link at the top under Quick Links) I THINK of you use someone eleses referral code they get £1 but I could be wrong

Hi everyone, I am a freelance copy editor working predominately for a company that provides web content to direct clients and agencies.

I have also been a freelance home-based researcher for a text question-and-answer service and have been employed by or freelanced for over 40 mystery shopping companies, both as an assessor and as a supervisor.

I am always looking for ways to increase my income, so am hoping to take advantage of The Money Shed's tips and ideas. :)

I’m guessing that text q&a service is bongo / 63336 ?

Indeed, it was AQA/63336. I made good money from it for several years; however, I didn't like the way the company was going when it switched the emphasis to 'Mystic Meg'-type questions rather than factual, hence the change to copy editing.

ah yeah, it certainly did when it went full Bongo. Those social media / Geordie Shore blasts were always SO POPULAR though which is why they probably went in the direction they did!

Hi all,

Clare here. Joined last night after getting engrossed in the different threads.
Much like a lot if other introductions that I've read, I'm looking to initially supplement my income. I've not long gone part time whilst I study and start to build my own business and if I'm honest, it's a little overwhelming to find out that I actually have loads of options to make some extra money.
As a complete newbie, I've signed up for PA and I really like this site. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone and hopefully getting to the stage where I might be able to contribute myself in the future. Many thanks all, Clare
