Make money in your spare time.

Have you ever thought about making extra cash, while sitting before  your computer at home, during your spare time? Cash that would come in handy for a vacation or for that phone bill that went sky high, since you called Aunt Gertha last month?

Well if you have, you are in the right place!

Let me introduce myself first. I am a stay at home mom of a wonderful 22 month old toddler. Over the past years I have been doing a lot of research  on ways to make money, with little effort while staying at home. During my research I came upon some great resources to help you start cashing in at home.

I joined a few work at home forums, and have gathered together some great information on how to earn money, working from your home. I am always looking for ways to make money from home, so I visited the work at home forums frequently, and low and behold, I found one of the best websites ever. Yes! That website is eHow. You can choose any topic to write about, as long as you follow their simple, easy to follow format.  You don't have to be an experienced writer to write at eHow ,and the best thing about ehow, is that you get paid for your articles, month after month, after writing them. This is a great way to build up residual income. The more articles that you write the more potential you have to earn more money each month. Start writing now, eventually the dollars will start to add up and in no time you will be cashing in at home!

Writing for eHow is fun and easy. I just started on, July 22 2008, and each month my earnings almost doubled. My earnings for October was $59.38, and I expect it to increase each month. Why not drop by, in your spare time and take a look at the website, and start writing a few articles. While you are there, feel free to check out some of my articles. I have written an article about other ways that you can make money at home.  Below you can find that article plus some others. Sort through them, and you will find some useful information.

12/13/08 Update:

I am back to update you on my progress. I having been adding more articles to eHow. I haven't been adding as much as I usually do. I am taking a short break to come up with some fresh ideas. Well, my earnings are slowly growing. This month I got paid $89.00. I will see what next month will be like.

As you know, it's always good to have more than one eggs in your basket, so I have signed up with another website that also operates like ehow, except that you can write different types of contents, in different format.  You don't have to write only How-to's, you can write on any topic that you wish.  Another great thing about it, is their referral system.  Bukisa has a 3 level referral system, meaning that you get paid for writing and also earn something if someone you invited signs up with your link and also starts to write, and so on. 

I just started 4 days ago, and I earned .44 cents already. It may sound small, but I am willing to keep adding more articles and watch it grow. When I just started writing at eHow, I can remember the first time I earned .10 cents, and was wondering when will I ever earn more money. These types of passive income doesn't happen overnight, they take time to mature into a steady income. Now is the time to  start building up a stream of income. Check out Bukisa whenever you have a chance, and start writing. Here is my link to sign up, whenever you are ready to share your knowledge with the world. Ok my friends, I have to leave now, but I will be back with more updates.

Update 5/13/09

I am still watching my earnings grow with Bukisa and ehow. Bukisa's earnings is at $9.15 since I started and eHow earnings for April was $106.00. As you know the economy is very weak these days, so I am always looking to add more money in any legitimate way that I can. Here are a few websites that I use to make some extra money--feel free to check them out. You don't have to worry about paying money to sign up, you get paid instead! I will be adding more soon.

Update 1/15/2010

I know that I have taken a long time to update you guys about my progress, but I have been busy trying to find some residual income. Let me give you a quick update about my eHow earnings. I haven't added any new articles on eHow since last year May, and I am still seeing an increase in my monthly earnings. Below, you will see a screen shot of my earnings. Many people are making way more than what I am making, but I am still satisfied the money that I make each month because I haven't been adding any new articles for 8 months. This is a great way to make money while staying at home!! -- just write your articles with great keywords (SEO), then leave them to age. Next, all you have to do is sit back and reap the reward.


Residual income

Get online income
My Bukisa earnings hasn't improved since I signed up--I only received payment once since I signed up, which was $14.80. I am looking elsewhere to add to my income. I am so excited about this other company that I researched and have heard great things about. InfoBarrel is another company that allows you to earn residual income through Google AdSense. You can earn an income by adding articles, videos, picture galleries or sound clips. You earn 75% of the Google Ads impression on your content--with a potential to earn more. If you spread the word, and your friends sign up under your referral link, you earn 2% extra.  You can sign up here.

This sure sounds good to me! Go ahead and check it out for yourself. I am adding new content on a daily basis and hope to increase my article collection significantly. I just started out so I haven't receive any earnings yet, but I will surely update you when I do. Feel free to check out my articles here. See you soon-----

Update 5/17/2010

I haven't posted an update in a while. Sorry about that guys...I was busy as usual looking for other ways to earn residual income. There was a BIG change at eHow recently. We are not able to write for eHow directly unless we were approved by Demand studios. We will still receive residual income on all the articles that we already that is good news. Many writers were approved to transition over to Demand Studios including myself. In the mean time, I decided to sign up for FireHow to see how well I will do. They have a secret algorithm which includes page views, ratings and commenting. Here are a few of my recent articles at firehow. So far my earnings are low, but I guess I need more articles to see good results. I will keep you updated...

FireHow articles:
How to Get Rid of Blackheads With Simple Home Remedies

How to Maintain Your Youthful Look With Anti Aging Facial Cleansing

Update 1/17/2011

I am back again to update you on my journey as a work at home mom. I am still earning from eHow although they stopped accepting new articles on the eHow website. Instead, new writers would have to apply through Demand Studios. They have a great revenue share program if you are interested in earning a passive income. My eHow earnings for this month was over $200 although we are  not allowed to add anymore articles to that account through eHow. You see why I am interested in creating a stream of income so that I can work less and make more money? Some writers are earning $1000 or more in residual income each month.

Knowing me and my search for ways to make residual income, I found another site that many people are using and earning money...not upfront, but residual. I decided to give it a try and in 2 days I started to earn money. The name of the website is WebAnswers. It's similar to Yahoo Answers, but the only difference is that you get paid to answer questions. Many people are making over $100 a month and more. The more answers you give, the more you will earn. You will get paid through your Adsense account. Since I started earning 2 days after signing up, I earn every day except for Wednesday last week. At first you will see couple cents, then it will increase. Many people are making $2 to $5 dollars a day. The ones that were there for a longer time have reported that they earned $7 some days and even earned $14 dollars on other days. If you are interested you can signup here. Okay...I am off to make some more passive income...stay tuned...

Update 8/15/11

As you know I am always on the lookout for new ways to make money. One thing I have learned over the years is not to depend on one source of income, especially on the internet. Work at home requires perseverance and hard work. When I feel discouraged, I visit the work at home forums and read experiences of  people who are making couple thousand  dollars each month. That just gives me the boost that I need to keep moving time for a pity party. Anyway...I found another website that pays you to post in a wide variety of forums. This website is called Postloop.

Before you can start making posts in the forums, you have to do 10 trial posts and get them reviewed. You will be given a rating...the higher the rating is the more money you will earn. You will be paid by paypal, anytime of the week, as long as you accumulate enough points. They even have a referral system setup to increase your earning potential. If you are interested in signing up you can Signup Here. Feel free to drop by and leave comments about your experience at Postloop or ask questions.
