Online Earnings for March 2017

Many, if not most, Americans live on a paycheck-to-paycheck basis. This makes it hard for most people to build up wealth. When you spend pretty much every penny that you make, it’s hard to build up a nest egg. This is where online earnings that can supplement the money you get from your regular job.

Prioritize Your Finances to wind up with a suitcase of money
Online earnings can build up a nice nest egg over time.

While many people do quite well financially, there are more that have a job that pays little. These people frequently look to the side hustle. This is the reason I started to look for ways to make money online about a decade ago.

It’s definitely helped improve my financial position over what it would have been had I not started. My online earnings have increased over time. Some months’ I’ll do pretty well; others, I’ll make less. The way I look at it, though, any extra money that I can bring in will help me build wealth over time.

Back in February, I made just above $200, which was less than the $334 that I made in January. Now it’s time to check my online earnings for March.

Monthly Online Earnings Report–Making Money in Pajamas for January

January was a pretty busy month. I was on the road for the first week of the month, so my online earning capabilities were not as big as they might have otherwise been. Also, I spent quite a bit of time getting my first draft of my dissertation finished, so that took a bit more time. Travel is not in the cards for February, but there will more than likely be some impressive revisions to do on the dissertation. Nevertheless, I was able to make a few bucks on the side during January.

Most of my money actually came from online writing. There are several sites that people can use to make money. Some of them are open to citizens from around the world. Some limit themselves to just American citizens. At times, my earning is limited by the types of jobs that are available. I might look at the board to see what jobs are available and conclude that the instructions are so convoluted that my pay per hour will come out to about $2.50 because of the research and or formatting involved. I tend to look for jobs in areas in which I already have some knowledge so that I can make more money more quickly.

In January, I made $116.79 from a freelance writing site. I also was able to make $70.52 from the online writing site HubPages, which is a Web 2.0 site that allows users to post their own articles and participate in discussions that are in a way like Facebook. HubPages has a large number of users and pays based upon the number of views and click that people get. I was able to earn some more money during January, but I did not make the payout amount necessary to get paid from these sites. I am continually on the lookout for legitimate ways to make money without leaving the house. I will continue to review some of these sites in the future and keep up with my goal of earning $5,000 in 2013 from my internet work. I am at $187.31 so far after one month. My hope is that the money will start to snowball over time.
