Well, here we are, 2012 is now underway. I have been busy working online with many sites. I am trying to earn more. I only got into working online about a year and a half ago. It took me some time to figure out some things. I failed with some sites because they turned out to be scams. I did not start off with writing articles or blog or anything like that. I actually started with some PTC sites. I thought they seemed cool at the time so I joined a few. Well, after a while I noticed that I reached payout but was not getting paid. I would request my payout and I would wait the allotted time. Nothing ever was paid to me. Then I would find the site no longer there. That's when I started to learn about scam sites. But I did not give up there, stupidly, I joined even more of them. And some of them promised to pay 2 dollars per click and some even went as far as promising 50 dollars per reading an email. Well, was I real stupid. I wasted many hours and days clicking away.
I slowly started to learn that that was not the way to go. So I started looking further for more legit online earnings sites. I came across a few other kind of sites but was also not successful. I was getting ready to just give up and let it go. But curiosity got the best of me. So I continued looking. I spent days looking for something different. Then I stumbled upon a social forum. It looked okay, I signed up and I did not understand it very much. So I stopped going there. Again, I kept on looking. I started to find now, some paying social sites. I signed up with a few of them. Again, some of them went scam or just went out. But some of them stayed online. So, I started working them. I also started to learn that they all were not free. Some wanted a monthly payment for upgraded members, in turn they would pay you more. But I did not have enough to go around. I decided to upgrade in one of them. I was starting to make something every month, and as bad luck would have it, I lost my job and I had to downgrade my membership. I still belong to that site, but hardly go on any more.
Well, I went looking again and I found something very special. A social network that paid without spending anything. So I joined. Now this one did not pay as good as the other one that I had upgraded on, but it was consistent. Every single month. Then I was looking for something more to help increase my internet income. So I went back to that social forum and I read the guidelines. I started posting and responding, and I started to make some money. Now remember, I did not make lots of money, but I was getting excited that I was making something every month. So I worked that forum and I am a loyal addicted member. Also, that free social network, well I am still with them and hopefully it will increase over time. So not I belong to like 25 sites that pay me, some of them are time consuming. But I am akin something. Remember, there is no miracle website out there. There is n such thing as making thousands a month. You need to start somewhere, stick with it, promote referral links and try and gather referrals. I know it is not the easiest thing to do, but if you do not promote the links, then it will be harder to make money. But believe me, there are many people out there looking to do the same thing. Stay focused, stay calm and have patients.
