Cold hard cash in your hand

Pennies

Okay earning pennies doesn’t sound much and when I first started earning online my friends where falling over laughing their socks off at me for earning pennies no sooner my back was turned. Oh I could hear them all right, but now the sock is on the other foot.

They have the right to laugh at me because I tried and tried to earn online but over the years I’ve come across more scams than I’ve had hot dinners. So when I started to earn a few pennies I know what they would do. Oh here he goes again ha ha ha

First I came across Hubpages and to be totally honest I’m no writer and do find it hard to even finish writing a peace to post. Then I came across RedGage, a breath of fresh air for me not only can you back link your Hub’s on RedGage but also you can post photos you’ve taken.


Joining and friends

Now I’ve never been able to get other people to join in with what I’m doing even though I’ve tried, but with only earning pennies you can see why. Over the time with RedGage and indeed Hubpages I’ve continued to tell my friends how much I’ve earned and how well I’m doing in hopes of them joining. But yet they still laughed at me behind my back knowing that I was only earning pennies

Now like I say the sock is on the other foot, my friends which once laughed at me for earning a few pennies have now started to ask more about my earnings and the pennies that I earn online. They have started to take notice of what I’m doing as you see my earning have grown and grown. I’ve earned over $1600 on RedGage, still my earnings continue to grow. My earnings on Hubpages do grow but not so fast or as much, maybe one day that will all change. Maybe the friends which once laughed at me will join and start to earn some pennies too.

This is my earnings so far 6th Jan 2012

My earnings

My online earnings have helped me with birthday and Christmas presents and a few things for me, those pennies do mount up over time. So why RedGage, it’s simple and easy to do, anyone can do it, back link your blogs from Hubpages or write and post your own in RedGage blogs. Photos are easy and gain many more views which in turn will earn you money. Your holiday snaps, photos of flowers in the garden, photos of your pet dog or cat, post them online at RedGage and earn some pennies.

If you are reading this and you are not a member of RedGage then join here, you will be warmly welcomed. Thank you for taking time to read this, have a great 2012 I know I will, I can hear those pennies falling into my account as I write.

My earnings as of 8th June 2012

Six month update

I thought I would do a six month update of my earnings from RedGage, as it’s been 6 months since I wrote this hub. My earning has continued to grow which I'm so happy about and who wouldn’t be. As you can see that over the last 6 months I’ve earned just over $1000 taking my total earnings to just over $2700

Let them laugh. You'll be laughing, too, on your way to the bank to deposit all those thousands of pennies. The idea of getting paid for photos is really inspiring. I have thousands of those and take more all the time.

Voted up and uplifting! Thanks, I needed that. Peg

hey there, i am wondering if you might know why i cant log in to redgage. the little window pops up but when i fill in my log in info and click submit, nothing happens. same thing with my activation thing. i dont think i ever activated my account because of this. could it be that chrome is incompatible with redgage?


Arren123 profile image

Arren123 4 years ago from UK Author

Timcgaa70 you would need to activate your account, ok it's a long time since I did but you should have received an email from RedGage. Check your email, If not then try again with a new account. I use Chrome and it works fine for me.

Hey Kevin-Thanks to you helping me with some online information, I am up to a couple hundred dollars on Redgage now. What did you mean about back linking your blogs to hubpages??? If I write a blog post, I upload it as content on Redgage. If I write something on Hubpages, I upload it as a link to Redgage. What am I missing? It's funny how you just keep learning new things online. congrats Kevin on your pennies adding up-You deserve it and your friends aren't laughing anymore :-0

Great job! When I first started online, I wasn't earning anything. Then I started earning pennies and it was then that I realized that it was possible to earn online. Pennies do add up and then it also helps motivate you to earn more.

Arren123 4 years ago from UK Author

I'm happy you shared this Kevin. My friends don't believe me too and never did join RG until I came home from Bangkok and distributed presents and proudly told them I used my earnings at RedGage to buy your presents.And I'll stick it out with RedGage.

I'm just beginning to learn how to make the most of Redgage- just applied to withdraw my first $25. Can you remember how long card takes to reach the UK? Do you have any problems using the card in the UK?

Kevin - just to let you know - I visited this hub via your update on Zurker :)


Arren123 profile image

Arren123 4 years ago from UK Author

Hi Jason and well done on earning $25. My card took about 3 weeks to get here in the UK. I guess it's down to when they put it in the post. I use my card online, like Amazon and did buy myself a train ticket to Plymouth and back form Nottingham. You can't use the card in shops unless you know somewhere where you don't need to the "chip and pin", if you read my other one RedGage pennies, no scam there a link to tell you how to put your money into PayPal so you can withdraw in it in your bank account. Enjoy spending your earnings :)

Triond also allows you to post photos. However, at this point in time, I earn far more from my private clients and from posting to sites like SocialMoms, The Motley Fool, and The Krazy Coupon Lady.
