My first online gigs were on PTC sites to which I subscribed when I was still working in an office. Then more than two years ago, I started working for an online writing site. My cash flow is nowhere near my income as an accountant but I can say that the trade off was good considering that I'm spending much less now that I'm working at home and that I don't have to go through the horrendous traffic and 4-5 hours of travel each day. I have since augmented my earnings by joining online sites like PL, Spare5, and UsabilityHub. I'm getting by, I suppose, but I'd like to expand my horizon and put up my own finance blog.

I started as an online freelance writer back in 2010.  I had a great experience, though I must admit that I did go into some bumps along the road.  Along the way, I learned that keyword stuffing is.  In fact I was asked to write a new set of articles related to the topic at hand.  It was never easy, but at least I got the job right at last.  Eventually I started to branch out, starting from simple article writing to blog posting, data entry, and PTC sites in order to diversify my income.  I may try out bitcoins in the future too.

I started my online career by joining numerous survey sites in order to maximise my earning potential but it proved an uphill task and even lost the email address I used to sign up for the various sites. The next destination was with buxsites and just as it looked like I would break even, scams started to emerge. My forte now is forum posting and article writing is my next destination. Patience, prudence and continuous research are sure to yield dividends over time.

It is more of "how has my work at home career changed over time?"  I started off folding T-shirts and socks and hose at 16. I have done a number of things from home day care to pet sitting to catering (ya, they came and got their stuffs) and then it evolved to bookkeeping, data entry, research, papers, job searching, and other things. I have also done lots of call center work. That is what I have done for about 8 years now. I love it and would change any of it for anything!

I was introduced to online writing in 2007. I began writing online in 2010. However, I did not receive money that I had earned by writing online until 2012. Helium, now defunct, was the first site that paid me. Since 2012, I have been publishing online very actively. After writing on various sites for years, I decided to launch my own blog in 2016. However, owning to my hectic schedule, I have not been able to update my blog regularly. The year 2014 was a great for me because I was earning over $500 per month just by writing online. However, these days I am able to generate just about $200 every month through writing online.

I've only tried working online last month so I guess I[m still in process. I do want to be professional at transcribing audio though, I'm currently in gotranscript and it's pretty nice there but the audio quality for most files there are bad. It's hard to progress but I guess dealing with bad audio quality is just part of the job. I'd like to be a transcriptor online in the next couple of years, I've heard of people doing good with it and I want that too as I live in a third world country and I don't really mind low American wage pays.

I am only beginning my online career. I think the best advice is to have a plan. Listen to other people's advice about what to avoid and gather all the tips and information you can. Try not to be all over the place and extending yourself too much with too little pay. You gotta have a niche, and go with that. I am taking Creative Writing courses so I plan on making my career in the freelance writing world and I have certain things that I am knowledgeable and passionate about that will be my focus. There are so many scammers out there waiting for people to take advantage of, so check everything out.
