Weekly At Home Income Update 3/24/2010

It has been a long week for me, but I have managed to earn a more of an at home income. I have lost some of my concentration due to my recent problems. After I move this week I will be more focused than ever. I am determined to make a full time income from home, and I know I can do it.

The last week had a great increase due to Ebay and MySurvey. I sold a couple of items on Ebay and I did make my payout for Mysurvey. Even all of the writing sites are doing fairly well, and has shown a small increase.

My At Home Income Earnings: $85

The next week will be slow for me. When everything is organized again I will be able to focus on my income more than I ever have before. Thanks to everyone for there support.

I will be away for a few days

I just wanted to apologize to the readers. I will be unable to do any updates for a few days. I have recently discovered that my husband is leaving, so I have to figure out my life. I am completely devastated about the separation and the fact that I am having to move out of my apartment. I just wanted to let you know that I have not gone anywhere, and I will be back updating on a regular basis within a week or two. Thank you for everything.

I will be able to focus on my home income more after this is all over with, and I am hoping that there will be even more things that are positive with this situation.

Featured Article

I have only been a member of Firehow for 10 days, and I have already had two featured articles. I woke up this morning to see my article on the front page, and it gives you a good feeling. I feel like my writing is being appreciated.

I am also enjoying the earnings from Firehow. I have already earned close to two dollars. I have been putting a few articles on every day, and have gotten the views that I need to earn a small amount of money from all of the articles.

I think any freelance writer looking for a place to write "How To" articles should look at firehow. I am also a contributor of Ehow, and love that site as well. I feel like both of the sites together will greatly increase my at home income.

I want to reach the payout by the end of the month, and how earnings has been going I believe that I can. I have $2, so I only need $8 more. It is possible, I will just have to keep submitting articles every day and watch the earnings increase.

Here is my featured article:

How to Teach A Child Good Work Ethics

Monday, March 15, 2010


I have been trying to make an at home income actively for about six months now. It was not because it was a choice, it was a necessity. I was injured at work and was stuck at home. When my work comp decided not to pay after a month, I was stuck. I was unable to work, but I had to have an income. That is when I began writing online. I am so happy I have found online writing, but I do get frustrated.

My husband works his heart out every day trying to support us. I have been looking for a job, but am unable to travel far because we only have one car. I have applied at all of the businesses within two miles of our apartment, but I am having no luck.

It has bothered me from time to time. It seems to be even more frustrating today, but I cannot pin point exactly why. I want to contribute more to our home. I am used to making a full time income of $25-$30 grand a year, and I am now making a little more than $200 a month. It is a big pay cut, and it can be very frustrating at times.

I have to be positive. We are only a little behind on a few bills, and we are both pretty healthy. Things could be so much worse, and I know it. I pray about it all the time. I do not pray to be rich, but I pray for me to be able to contribute more and we be able to enjoy our lives.

There is a plus side at the moment. I am doing something that I enjoy, and I am doing it from home. It gives us more time to spend with our families, and do other things that we love. I know it will take time to reach my goal home income, and I am working hard to reach that goal.

I know that others that have reached there goal home incomes had to work extremely hard, and be patient. Knowing this I have to do the same. I know it will be 6 months to a year before I truly see an at home income, and I am willing to work on that.

I am sure that everyone that works from home knows exactly what I am talking about. There are points in the process that are just frustrating, and can take a lot out of you. If you are looking for instant gratification the majority of online income sources are not for you. It take time, knowledge, patience, and pure determination to reach your goals.

This post was for me to relieve my mind. I needed to vent to people that understand exactly what I am talking about. It has actually made me feel much better, and I am ready to work. I feel my frustration leaving, and my determination coming back. Thank you for listening.

At Home Income Weekly Update 3/15/2010

My at home income has been pretty good this week. Adsence has began to increase slightly and I have had a small increase on some of my writing sites. I have been unable to publish articles on Ehow the last couple of days, so I have been putting my focus on other writing sites.

I have made payout on Mysurvey, and should receive that this week. That will give me a little increase for next weeks update. I have also made payout on Mypoints, but I am going to let the points build up so I can get a gift card that has more money on it.

My At Home Income Earnings-$26

My Goals For Next Week:

  • Publish more on Ehow if the publishing tool works again.
  • Publish a couple of articles on Associate Content and Bukisa
  • Promote all of my articles on Shetoldme and Xomba
  • Sell a few items on Ebay

Most Popular Firehow

I have only been a member of Firehow for three day, and one of my articles made it to the most popular article. I am pleased with this, and will be posting a lot more articles for this reason. I have been a member of Ehow for over a year, and have never had an article chosen for the front page. To actually get recognized is a great feeling. I am not sure how long the article will be the most popular, but I will be pleased with the time anyway.

Firehow Front Page

My article that has been chosen for most popular

I had this same article published on Ehow for a few months, and did not earn a penny on it. I am now getting great views, and my earnings increase by the minute.

Home Income Weekly Update 3/8/2010

I can't believe that the first week of March is already over, time seems to be flying by. Well this week has been a very positive week for my home income. Most of the sites have shown a small increase, which is always good when you are working from home. The Adsense is still having low earnings, but everything else is doing fairly well.

Home Income Earnings-$28

That is an eight dollar increase for the week, and I am hoping that the following weeks will be even better.

One of My First FireHow Articles

I am now up to 11 Firehow articles in the last two days. I am very pleased with my progress, I have already made more than .20. That is a big plus for me. I wanted to share one of the first articles that I wrote for the site. It is an original article, not taken from my Ehow article library.

How To Make A Living Writing Online

Writing online has become a great source of income for a lot of individuals. There are numerous sites that allow you to write on a variety of different topics. Writing articles such as this one could help you make a living writing online. One thing you should remember is that writing online is not a get rich quick scheme. It does take time, determination, organization, knowledge, and perseverance. There are people making a living writing online, and these steps can help you with your dream.

Read the article in its entirety.


I was reading in the Ehow forum about Firehow, and decided to try it. I signed up yesterday afternoon, and transferred three of my Ehow article to the site. I chose articles that are a few months old and had not earned anything. I decided to go and check on the site a few moments ago and I have actually earned .05. I know it is not much, but these articles have been on Ehow for about five months without any earnings.

I do not think this will be a substitution for Ehow, but a great addition. The minimum payout is $10 and the articles are in "How To" format. It took me a total of 5 minutes to transfer those articles over, and I like that there is already a positive to the site.

If you are serious about making an at home income this site can be something to consider. It will make a great addition to other freelance writing sites, and other home income sources.

Monthly Home Income Update

This month has been a difficult month for my home income; Ehow Earnings have been up, Adsense has been down, AC is just bad earnings, and the others together has been doing fairly well. In all my earnings have been doing OK. I am still trying to be patient, because I know that it can take a little time.

The next couple of weeks will be a little slow, I am working on something else. As soon as I have figured if I am going to be able to share it with you all.

For the month of February my home income earnings have been more than $75 .

I will not be putting a lot of focus on my online income over the next couple of weeks, so I will not be posting any goals for the month. I will start again after i finish what I am working on.
