Update To Readers

I want everyone to know I took a bit of a break. I stopped posting to this blog shortly after starting my new job at a hotel. Around that time a lot was going on money wise and life wise so the motivation was not there. My family dog was put down in October which was another rough event to deal with.

I am still blogging just probably won't be updating this blog anytime soon. If you are interested these are the blogs I have been working on.

Affordable Christmas Gift And Decoration Ideas

Valentines Day Fun


I am most proud of my Christmas gift blog, which is old but I started posting to it more and even have a series about reusing old Christmas cards.

So feel free to view those blogs and comment if you wish :)
I will post to this blog again sometime just not anytime soon.

Web Perspectives Is Legit

This is a quick post to let everyone know I had reached enough points to redeem $10.00 from Web Perspectives, I had 2 so $20 in total.


So you can see from the picture above that I did get the money in my paypal and Monday I got the money showing up in my bank account.  So I am excited about it because I never had luck with survey websites! And I did tell everyone I would post payment, so here it is. :)

Why Isn't My Blog Earning Money?

A troubling thing for sure is when you blog for a long time and don't make any money off of it. I think some people just need to change their thinking though and don't expect to earn anything the first month or in some cases the second month or longer.

If you sit down and think about it there is a lot of reasons why your blog may not be making you any money. I want to share some of the reasons today:

1) New Blog -  How new is your blog? Is it a month old? a week old? 4 months old? I think a lot of people don't realize that you are not going to just magically make money over night, that is not how it works. There is a lot of time and effort involved in blogging. You need a blog that is going to appeal to the people of that niche, but more importantly you need the traffic. If no one is coming to your blog, don't expect any profit. Also keep in mind that you may not start seeing earning results until quite a few months, I would estimate 4 - 6 months or more. So be ready fo…

My Blog's Traffic Info

Image
If you are a blogger or starting your own website by now you should know traffic is very important to get your website anywhere on the web. A lot of hard work is involved in getting traffic, and being lazy about it will just result in not many visits to your blog.

Actually I want to talk about google analytics. Google analytics is a great tool to see how many visitors are coming to your website. You can also see the traffic sources they are coming from.

This video will explain it better!


This is a great video from youtube from the google channel. It explains this great tool better then I can!

Here is a overview of my website traffic at current,


So you can see from this image that my traffic is very up and down. There is numerous reasons, I know one day my blog was on the front page of the search engine results but it has been kicked back since then, but I am ok with that for a now. It just more reason to start working on it harder. The days that the traffic is slumped is mostly weekd…

Reasons Why Some People Can't Work From Home

Work from home jobs and opportunities are not for everyone. For some working at home can be lonely and they can miss having co workers. For others the peace of being away from work place drama is enough reason for them.
There are a lot of pros and cons that come with working from home, but the biggest and most important decision is knowing if you can or not. I don't mean being home office ready, I mean willing to work independently, on your own, no office.
The work from home environment is a lot different compared to working in an office, store or wherever it is you are working. So below is a few reasons why some people can't work from home.
Social Butterfly – Are you one of those people that need daily contact with others? You need a lunch break with friends, a coffee chat. When you work at home you will be in your home working so the chances of getting much social action is slim, unless you have someone at home you can talk to. For some people this is not enough though. They wa…

Updates On Surveys

Image
I posted a video about surveys and what people should know before signing up. I also wanted to talk about my earning update though.

Check out my video if interested, its informative for anyone wishing to start taking surveys online as a way to earn extra cash.




I have not got paid yet from the survey websites that I am using, but I have not met the payment threshold in either. I just want to show my stats for people to see.
This is a picture from my survey head account:
You can see my rewards at current. I still need to make $17.99 before I can cash out. I would of had over that had I qualified for more surveys, and I signed in to late and missed my chance on a couple of them!


This picture is from my Web Perspectives account:

I currently have 650 points, I believe you need 1,000 to cash out. Once my pending credits go through I should have more then enough! Which is good because if these websites work out I plan on posting my payment proof information. But until then I have to wait :) 

Free Work At Home Job And Freelance Listings

One of the biggest challenges with working from home is finding legit jobs and freelance opportunities. I want to just share a few links to websites that have free listings :)

Top 5 Successful Habits Of An Internet Marketer

Have you wondered if you have what it takes to work from home? It is important to be successful in what you do, so here is the top 5 successful habits of Internet marketers!

1) Organization - Without being organized it can cause a big mess sometimes. And the last thing anyone needs is to many messes getting in the way of a big task. If you have trouble keeping organized then buy a whiteboard or use sticky notes to keep up with reminders, write action plans if you have to.

2) Time Management - Time management is important in regards to keeping things on schedule and getting done effectively. In a day you should work and play not just work. So always keep that in mind when starting out online. Don't work yourself in the ground, just make sure you have work priorities in order.

3) Daily Task - This goes with time management. Sometimes there is way to much to do, but it can't be done in one day, so what do you do? I make a list, i sit down and I write a list of what needs to be do…

Work At Home Call Center, Data Entry And Transcription Jobs.

When I first began looking for how to work from home I was only finding programs that costed money. Well there are work at home jobs out there that do not cost any money, they are real companies that will pay you for your time and work you do.

After much researching I have been building a list of companies, I wanted to share them in this blog post because I know how annoying it is to be mislead or have trouble finding a real work at home job.

***Note To Reader*** If you visit the links please read all the detail before signing up, some jobs require you to have certain equipment or be in a certain location. Also keep in mind this is a list done solely on research, I don't know anything about these companies, and applying to these companies will not guarantee you a job. So please apply carefully

Something For Work At Home Freelancers

I just started using twitter again, and found Modern Freelance, I am following them and got a message to check out their website. I have had interest in freelancing for some time but don't have much experience to offer to the table other then customer service, call center, blogging, writing experience I suppose...

Anyhow I read some of the post on the website and its a pretty good spot to read and they have Resources listed with links to Job sites. They offer something else to, submissions! And by that I mean you can write an article for them based on freelancing mainly, your compensation is that you will recive a byline and a link to your website!

Anyways could be a good way to get some traffic. And learn as well, some of the articles are quite educational...

What You Need To Know Before Joining Survey Websites

Image
Some of you may have stumbled upon programs that might say "Make Money Taking Surveys At Home" Or "Earn $100.00 dollars An Hour..." First off I want to say chances are I highly doubt anyone is going to make a full time income doing surveys at home, but if someone wants to prove me wrong then I say bring it on! Making $100.00 an hour is a bit out there for my liking... There is so much people don't know when signing up to survey websites, its terrible really.

So let me list down what I have learned from joining survey websites.

Many moons ago I paid money to join a website that was advertising taking surveys as a job. I was young and thought it was true. The website has a listing of survey companies, that was great but because I was Canadian I couldn't sign up to 70% of them. I soon got frustrated because each website wanted me to fill out these long and boring profiles about myself, I thought "Pssh this is dumb" I filled out a few and saw small earn…

How can I learn about working from home and making money online?

I think these questions often get confused because to me making money from your PC is not a job so much, but a means to make extra cash, if you turn into a lot of cash, then great! Now you may be wondering "Do jobs exist?" Work from home jobs do exist!

Work from home is better known to some as "telecommute" basically means working outside of the traditional office, working from your home office. The most common telecommute jobs I have seen were call center related. And yes there are call center jobs and many more.

If you don't want something like that then you can still research other ways to earn money. I know people who have blogs and websites earning them money, other people do freelance work and some have their own online business.

At some point I do hope to place a list of possible work at home jobs for interested people to view. I know most people are going to prefer that over building a website.

As far as work at home jobs go, I use a trusted website li…

Welcome To My True View On Making Money Online

I am new to the whole work at home, job at home, cash at home type of genre so to speak. I do know a bit about HTML, blogging, Adsense and social networks but not enough to say I am a guru, because I am not. I have done blogs in the past that didn't make it far so I hope this one will be the one to out due those other crum bum blogs!

First off though I want to introduce myself, my name is Lee-Ann and I am from Parrsboro Nova Scotia, living in Amherst now, a town slightly bigger then Parrsboro. I am 24 years old and basically struggle to find work, so a part of me wanted to turn to the Internet as my source of hopeful income. The only money I have ever received was back in 2005 from surveylion. Survey lion is a survey site for anyone interested. Survey lion sent me a check of $10.00 bucks for doing 1 survey. I eventually grew tired of surveys but that's ok, because I am back to try and make it all work again! The only other money is my adsense which only has $10.00 bucks or so,…
