Y'all, are you aware of all the companies that pay for surveys?
I'm hustling for income right now, so I use a few of them. Enroll is not worth your time. Mostly they ask for free demographic information from you, and if you get a survey, it's literally just a few cents. There are some better ones with actual UI feedback, but I'm a bit wary of them. However, now that I have some gain issues with my web cam sorted out, I might do them more and then review them here. Mostly, right now, I do Survey Junkie. Thought about linking them, but they're easy enough to find and don't need my little link to make bank.
The gist of it is, you sign up, give them all your demographic specifics, and then they have a dashboard of surveys you can try for. Mostly they are a pittance - 20 minutes for 70 cents, that sort of thing - but if you are efficient, you can make a little petty cash fairly easily. Not much - basically half a tank of gas with a little bit of effort, maybe once or twice a week.

I'm trying to be patient with myself, non-judgemental, but I am honestly intimidated. This thing is a mess. There's uneven voice, pacing, … Continue reading Such a Mess
Time. There isn't any. Or rather, there's not enough. I've been working retail for years, now, and while it's a good job at an indie bookstore, it's hella hard work and tiring. And I'm a single mom, "unevenly yoked" (his ironic words) to an ex who doesn't step it up and do his part. So … Continue reading Time
Literally. A couple of years ago I used my NaNoWriMo coupon to bag on to a copy of Aeon Timeline 2 I've fiddled with it before, but I've just recently realized it may be the tool I need to pick up the narrative thread of the story. I'm a single mom, and there are many … Continue reading Working on a Timeline
