I posted to my Twitter account yesterday that I have had some money trickling in to my PayPal account this week, which is nice. This isn't the first week I've had that happen, but I've got a few different sources that paid me this week, which I like.
Here's what I do to earn a little gas money (or more):
1. YouData. This is a little pay-per-click service that pays 10-15 cents or more per click for you to look at some advertiser websites. You don't have to buy anything. You just click and move on. I did a bunch of offers yesterday in about 2 minutes and made $2.46. That's not much, but when's the last time you got paid $1 a minute?
The nice thing about them is they pay daily to your PayPal account. You don't have to build up $30 worth of offers just to get a payout. Sign up here (and yes, I do get paid a referral fee if you sign up, but don't let that stop you!). Once you sign up you can get your own referral link.
2. Paid blogging. Probably nobody likes this, but I've found it to be somewhat lucrative. I have a couple of sites that send me assignments and articles to write and post to my blog. You can get $5 and up for posts of usually 60-100 words, depending on your PageRank, etc. It's not hard or terribly time-consuming (unless you hate to write). Payouts are bi-weekly or monthly depending on the site. E-mail me if you're interested.
3. I've Tried That. I've written a couple of articles for the guys over at I've Tried That and I really believe in what they are doing over there. They are committed to finding legitimate work from home and online job opportunities. Check out their Free Directory of Online Money Making Opportunities.
What I won't do: SURVEYS. I'm a married white female with no children in my mid-30s and I live in a fairly affluent area (even though we are not affluent). I never qualify for any surveys, so I've stopped bothering with them. Better luck to you.
