Welcome. You’ll find it really good and supportive here. With your location I’d recommend signing up for as many focus groups as you can. I’m constantly turning down invites to focus groups in the London area! Although my demographics are of course slightly different as I’ve not been blessed with any kids yet.

Good luck with your journey :)
Thanks Andrew! I'm currently registered with Focus 4 People and Focus Groups UK. Do you know any others?

Thought I would say hi, so HELLO!!

Thanks for having me here.

My name is Emma and I am 34 years old. I am married and have 2 cats (named Starbuck and Costa). I am in the process of setting up a stationery business and could do with making some extra cash whilst I get my business off the ground.

Hope you all are having a good start to the year.

Hi Karen

Fantastic to have you on here and posting!

That's a lovely dream you've got there with the caravan! I live in Yorkshire myself and often wish I could spare the time to explore it more (mainly in the summer when it's less cold!!)

Hi all

I stumbled across this site, I’m not even sure how I found it but I’m so glad that I did.
I have a 5 year old boy and a 1 year old boy. My husband works 9-5 mon-fri and I work part time in the evenings when the boys are in bed. The change from going full time to part time so that I can look after the kids really affected our finances and I’ve decided to roll my sleeves up and try to help as much as I can. So when one boys at school and the other is sleeping I’ve made it my mission to try and bring some money in. I was unsure at first but finding this site has really filled me with confidence that it is actually posssible.

Hi, my name is Emily! I am a working graduate that likes to earn money on the side. I have been an active lurker on here but decided to make an account as I am trying to start a blog about my side hustle. First time making a blog so I'm happy to find a lot of information on here from people, just nervous how to start it and gets views.
Lately I have been trying to earn through selling crafts, doing surveys (Prolific only) and teaching English. I have tried many methods on here but most of them are not for me - such as small paying surveys and Appen/LB/LF as the communication is really bad

Thank you for the links! I will be sure to go through them!
Also, I was wondering, would it be better to host straightaway, or wait until you have more of a build up? I'm just worried if I pay and then no one is interested haha.

Well it's less than £2.99 a month

I spend that on lunch each day at work lol

You have FAR more control with self hosted than using a free one and then having to migrate it all over later

Hi all
I love the site, really informative so have now joined. I have 3 children (2 primary age, 1 pre-schooler). We have just moved areas so I left my last job (in nursing) and I want to wait til my youngest is a little older before going back. I have joined prolific academic and really enjoy the surveys, I have made about £20 in less than a week too! I also joined swagbucks but don't think I will continue with that.

I plan to do some match betting and write a blog. I love writing so will do it for that reason alone and if I make money along the way that's a bonus. I also have lots of questions about other money ideas I have looked into so looking forward to using this forum.

Good luck to all the other newbies on here.

Hi, I'm Mo.

I love savvy money spending hacks and loyalty rewards such as Nectar points and cashback. I have three amazing children who keep me busy and they are starting to get the money saving bug too! We use apps such as Shoppix, Receipthog and Jobspotter on a regular basis. They are just a bit of fun really. I'm a bit bored of surveys but still do Prolific ones as they are sometimes really interesting. I had hoped to start a blog and bought a domain and all that but I find writing lonely unless I get a response or some sort of engagement. So instead I am exploring other digital means of making an income.

You all seem such a friendly bunch, I look forward to learning more from you.

Hi @Momama (or Mo :))

I wish our kids would get the money saving bug too - that might be a good blog series for you - I'd love to know the trick behind that.
Yes, a very friendly bunch on here, all willing to help.
