    I only started about a month ago. I'm very pleased with the money from data entry, but am interested to know what else is out there. What type of at home job do you have?

      Being a writer is my home job. And it branches across the board.

      I'm asking a question. I'm not soliciting sign ups. What kind of job do you do? Work in office, field or home. I'm interested in learning about different types of employment.

    you have already posted many forums on the same topic, you are not trying to get information, you are trying to get people to seperate with money...let me guess your scheme is not free...if it is then i may be wrong! However in other posts you said it's only $20 and i've seen it marketed at $39 sounds like a sales pitch too me if ever i have heard one nice try though.

      I have seen it for more money. You don't shop around, trying to find a better deal??? Lots of people sell the same directory. They try and spice it up, but I can tell it's the same thing by some of their key words. I was lucky and surprised to find it for $20. I figured it would not be available anywhere for less, so I made the leap, especially with my family suffering from the loss of my last job. This job list worked for me, and as someone who has looked for so long for something legitimate online, you're damn right I'm gonna sing its praises. I don't need to be paid to do that. I don't want others to suffer as I have. If that is something that is a crime of some sort on hubpages then, you know what, I couldn't care less. I will always tell people about good, positive things I've encountered, things that have renewed my faith when I was about to give up.

    The thing is you are trying to get people to seperate with there money and that is wrong, it dosn't need to be an affiliate link you could own the site and be raking in the profit for a useless product, if i am wrong i will eat my hat but until you can prove you are not a scammer i will continue to put the seed of doubt into peoples minds!

      Well, you're welcome to your opinion, but if I was looking to scam people, I probably would have started a month and a half ago when I got the list. What I did do is apply for a job on the list and wait until I got paid/saw it was legit before even mentioning it in a post. I haven't talked about this for the last 4 days as you wrote in one of your posts. I only started talking about it today. I won't apologize for going on a bit out of excitement. Do you know what it's like to find a well paying, legitamate job after having to endure your family looking down on you for being unemployed.

      I can only tell people what my experience has been and where I found the list. I can't make people buy, nor would I want to represent a company that wasn't for real. I love hubpages. I couldn't continue to write here and interact with the community if I was pushing some shady site. You don't think someone would buy the product and post a comment hating on me if the product was bogus. Nothing is worth that. A few bucks is not worth selling your soul over. You go ahead and keep thinking the worst, though, if that is what your past experiences has ingrained in your character. It's innocent until proven guilty, not quilty until proven otherwise as you choose to perpetuate. I wish you well.

    If I am wrong then I appologize however I work in a field where vigilance is necessary, and it has been ingrained on my character. The reason you looked so spammy was that you posted multiple threads in a forum on the same subject which is normally a sure sign of SPAM. If you are legit then I am pleased for you big_smile as there is a lot of money making scemes out there!

    I do understand how hard unemployment is, and for that i feel very sorry for you and as i said before if you are for real then i am happy for you we live in a tough world with some nasty people out there and most of them are very nice when you speak to them.

    If you are just trying to help a community you like then fair enough and i commend you for this, just i also love this community and if I smell somthing fishy I feel it everyones responsibility to warn others.

    The only advice I would give is don't start multiple threads on the same subject it just smells fishy.

      I originally posted to the hubbers hang out and basically only got responses from people wanting employment, which is fine. If people are looking for opportunities, I'm happy to help.In fact, I really enjoy helping people in any way I can.

      I then posted in business forum to get a different kind of response, as in, I tell them about my job, they tell me about theirs and perhaps introduce me to something I haven't considered, but I didn't get too far because I immediately came under attack and had to defend myself against scam and affiliate accusations. 

      I wanted to discuss different types of employment, preferrably home based, and get away from all the stupdity, so I started a new thread: Anyone else have work at home job/ what do you do? That was a legitimate request for discussion/information, not an attempt to solicit people, but you immediate responded with further scam accusations.

      I started new thread to get away from the initial thread which was tainted by unfounded accusations. If you see that as suspicious then hey, to each their own. But thanks for explaing why everyone acted that way. Guess you get a lot of spam here and it's true: "No good deed goes unpunished." Good to know for future reference.

    I work from home quite a lot, as I prefer to be able to see my son more often, and work better here as no colleagues disturbing me.

    I'm in court 2-3 days a week, mostly in London, sometimes all over the place. The rest of the time, I'm reading papers, drafting grounds of appeal, skeleton arguments, defences, witness statements, all the rest of it.

      Your son is a very handsome little guy. I have two girls, 3 and 6 years of age. I'd been out of work for a few months, so they're very happy I found something, especially since it allows me to work from home and spend more time with them.

      I know what you mean about wanting to get away from distracting colleagues. My previous job, I had to deal with people who did nothing but play around and gossip all day.

    I belong to a WAHM forum...based in the US, but maybe you could glean some ideas from it.  Go to www.wahm.com.  I am always trying to find work at home work, and I have been successful to a certain degree.  Not enough to live off of, I need a full time out of the house job for that (I am the sole supporter of my two children).  Work at home money isn't that much, but it sure comes in handy...sort of like a savings account.

    My colleagues aren't that bad - we're all self-employed, so when we've done what we've got to do, that's it (-:

    Isaac's 3, coming up to 4, but the angelic looks are entirely deceptive.

      My 3 year old is an old soul. She constantly takes me by surprise with her mannerisms and unexpected comments.

      You son kind of looks like my nephew who's coming up this weekend from Sweden. His angelic looks are also quite deceptive :-).
