I'm surprised it's not grown bigger than it is tbh. *shrugs*

Yep Neevo is working out well in the absence of Lionbridge or regular Appen work. But also it's things like shares and cryptocurrency that I wouldn't have ever thought I'd be able to get into that I now have. And my little Redbubble project, which I still intend to grow since it has brought me in a tiny but steady trickle in the time I was AWOL.

Summer is typically the quiet months in between “oh Crap I need to earn money for Christmas” and “oh crap I have no money from Christmas” at the start of the new year lol but if you have ideas to make the site busier I’m all ears :)

Oh I'm sure I've not got any bright ideas you won't already have had, I've only ever run one website/forum and that was 15 ish years ago now. Most of my members just migrated over from other sites on a similar topic and at it's height I don't think it was any busier than this place although I can't remember actual numbers - or much HTML now come to think of it lol!

So been offered project Saluda on Appen, however it says I have to wait for a further email before I can start work and it's already been 3 days so not feeling that optimistic lol. Hope I get it as it will be a welcome boost to my earnings!

Appen are not the quickest at recruiting.. To be fair NONE of those sort of companies are lol

Hmmmn passed the exam to get access to the UHRS work on Clickworker but can't seem to actually qualify for any of the hits! Have tried rating search results and an English test which was finishing paragraphs but either my brain is mush today or they are all ridiculously hard!

Keep trying! It took me few attempts. But once you pass you are waiting again. Appen is slow but keep waiting and work will come.

Right I need some new things to apply for, this is my best time to work (son is playing, baby asleep, too earlier to start dinner) and there isn't any! Neevo has kept me busy the past few weeks but I've currently only got one job open and it's rubbish so I'm not playing lol. Can't seem to get on with the clickworker UHRS hits (might be a bit demanding for my tired brain), I do prolifics and one pulses as they come up but both are quiet at the moment and I decided operador just isn't for me. I did eventually get through the crisp thinking test so am on their waiting list and still no follow up email on the job I am supposed to have qualified for with Appen - boo! I pick up the odd Intellizoom and apply for utest jobs if I meet the requirements but have yet to get one. I feel like I need something else for days like today, I could be attempting to design some new bits for Redbubble but again, the tired! Gonna go have another read around and see what I can find...

Not a great update, still no work, nothing new has come up and Appen have emailed to say they are renewing my contract for 6 months despite still not actually giving me the work to do! Out of desperation I've resorted to going back to Qmee which I'm not really a fan of and dropped some time ago. At least the few quid you can earn is withdrawable straight away I guess..

This month is proving to be as tricky as I thought it might, very little on Neevo, Clickworker won't even load for me now other than on my phone, Appen continue to mess me about so really just a couple of intellizooms and prolifics is it. We have also finally got a moving date for 2 weeks from now so I'm up to my neck in sorting and packing as well as kids lol, don't think there's much hope of hitting my target to put it mildly!

Things are hopefully picking up a bit, we are now in the new house, had a one off Appen job (the other work never sent the 2nd email), a Neevo task I don't hate lol and have just passed the quiz for the Lionbridge e-shopper job! Need all the pennies, this house is a big reno project!

Total for 2020: £679.87 (£676.87 cash, £3 vouchers).

Summary: Once again thought I'd share this as it might be of interest to someone other than myself. Annual breakdown of where my earnings came from this year:

Neevo - £273.92
Prolific academies - £152.42
Curious cat - £49.41
Clickworker - £45.83
Lionbridge - £37.08
Onepulse - £29.37
Appen - £24.56
Qmee - £18.60
Intellizoom - £14.98
Red bubble - £14.64
Other/misc - £19.06

Given I did next to nothing until August and then moved house at the end of October this is better than I thought! In the new year my focus will be the new Lionbridge and Appen jobs, Neevo when there is something good on there and prolific and one pulse for surveys. Qmee and curious cat I have actually binned off due to too many disqualifying/non paying surveys so they won't appear at all moving forward. I might pick up the odd bit of clickworker and intellizoom work when it comes up and as for Redbubble it sits and trickles in even though I've had no time for it since I first set it up so firstly quite pleased with it and secondly if I ever get the chance I really must add some more to it!

Hope everyone is safe and well after this very difficult year, good luck for 2021!

Feeling deflated, thought the Lionbridge mystery shopper was a sure thing but I've 'not been selected' for this campaign, ie it might just have been a one off. Bit gutted as there is really bugger all else about at the moment! :(
