Oh, yes, all from home. Can't bare to be away from my TV. No, actually, I was unemployed and one day my youngest (3 years old) tried to give me her piggy bank because she knew I was struggling for cash. I cried for the rest of the day. Then I got on the computer determined to find a job. I found this site: <snipped link> It was different, not very flashy like the others and the price was right. I could afford $20. I got the online job list, applied to the most flexible (set your own hours) and they accepted me.
Bought this online job directory for $20. Had seen it advertised for $39 or more, so took a chance for less money. The very first job I contacted from the list accepted me less that 24hrs later. I nearly fainted from joy. Was still worried wouldn't pay as much as listed, so I only worked 5hrs/day, but now I got the check. So they for real. Gonna up my hours right away
Thanks. I really lucked out. And I have a whole list of other legit jobs to apply to. Applying is free. Finally after all these years, a real opportunity. I've fallen for so many scams and the real deal turns out to be the least expensive of them all. Go figure
Love the profile picture. I'm still in shock. I literally have never won anything in my life, so I guess I was due for some good luck. I'm taking the kids out to celebrate right after I cash the check.
The link I placed was direct to site, nothing to identify me as an affliate. And if you checked the site you would have seen that no affiliate program is offered. It was a straight url, so no $ for me even if someone signed.
I don't mind if you're unbelieving. My integrity is intact. Only money I've made if from work I do at job they put me in touch w/ and I am proud to reenter the work force. Wish me luck for continued success.
Thank you. Even though your comments were on the negative side, you made this chat interesting. Gosh, spam? I get a lot via e-mail and never read a single line before deleting, so I'm with you on anti spam patrol, but I'll always talk about the products and companies I find success with. I've made good friends by passing on good info. I'm a part of the hub pages community and hope to be for a long time, so I would not try to drop affiliate links. You would know that if you checked out a few of my hubs. It's all about wellness, health, pets and stuff. Not self promotion.
I'd tell you guys the url of where I work, but the more people who sign up at that particular job, the less hours that will be available to me. I had been unemployed for a few months, so I have to make as much money as I can to get back on my feet.
If you want list, you can get from same place I did: <snipped link> I'd let you buy it off of me, but I haven't quite figured out the whole e-commerce, accept credit cards thing. Good luck, yall, if you decide to try it out. I'm gonna head out soon the cash the $630. It won't be 100% real to me until it's in the bank.
Maybe you should write a hub where you can place the link and explain!?!? Congrats to you!! Do something for yourself as well. It is our nature to enjoy our extra money with our kids and I am sure you will get much satisfaction for doing so, but don't let yourself down, you deserve a treat yourself!! Way to go and please share!!!! dori
You guys talk a lot about pitch and sign ups and stuff like that. I honestly wish I was as knowledgeable on the subject as you guys seem to be. As I said in previous post, the url I indicated was direct to the site where I myself purchased a job list which worked out for me. If you want to check the site to confirm that they don't offer an affiliate program, you're more than welcome to. Right now you guys are just making assumptions that can easily be proved wrong, if you went to the trouble of doing your homework.
I bought it + was happy. I'm about to apply to one of the other jobs listed, so I'll give you that. It was for About.com Apparently they have a bunch of openings for people to write as "Guides" on different topics. The directory provided me with a direct link to send my application to, but I won't bother posting it, since it'll probably get snipped. Just go to About.com and navigate till you get to their employment listings. I already posted the site I got the list from, and have gotten flack for it, so I won't waste my time listing it again. Sorry, if I sound snippy, you seem nice and are clearly a cat lover, like myself. There's also this link to Families.com for writing gig,so you can check that out as well, by going direct to their site. Sounds real good.
yeah but it dosn't just have to be an affiliate thing, could also be she owns site and just takes your money for a useless product, in the years i have worked in IT I have seen many of these you can smell them a mile off! She has posted 4 times in last few days a slightly different title, but to the same aim to get people to part with their money on a specific site whether it is affiliate related or just a financial scam your guess is as good as mine!
I have one rule if it seems too good to be true it usually is...be careful before you part with your hard earned cash, even if it is only $20, there was a case about 4 years ago where a scammer did somthing very simillar was charging $14.99 for a directory which contained non existant jobs and made well over $200,000 it is truely shocking!
I check Guardian1 hubpages and her stuff is all pleasant. Not really commercial, you know? Kind of self help. Who knows. She seems nice, though, so I'll reserve judgement. Don't like to gang up on person without fact. Thanks for your info on scams, that's some scary shit.
Actually, About.com does have quite a bit of room for more Guides as there are available topics that are needing writers. I discovered this from a hub that listed About.com (as well as Families.com) as one of the well-paying opportunities in freelance writing. Here is the hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/50--Ways-To-Mak … line-soon. I haven't tried anything else other than hubpages yet, though.
Thanks, I'm also checking out another of the positions listed where they apparently pay you to text info to people. You work from your computer and type messages which the customers view on their phones. Pretty neat.
After my work on HubPages, my blog plus a whole lot of tweeting and twitpic'ing I have been approached by the editor of Rock Climbing UK to be a contributor, making this my first (albeit unpaid) online publishing 'job'...
