Making a little extra money

I don’t make any money off this blog at all and never will monetize it. It’s my personal blog. One day I hope to have a second blog that will be more of a niche blog that I have in the works. Well, I have an idea and a domain name anyways. This one’s not going anywhere. I just want one I can maybe make a little money off of, but in the meantime, while I get it set up and get it going and since I am practically jobless right now I am doing what I can to bring in any money that I can. I have a part-time job from home calling people for a market research company but it’s been a bit of a rocky start, to say the least, and not what I want to do. Obviously, school is still in the works so I have no student loan to fall back on and EI has not been approved yet and bills are piling up.

I mentioned in a previous post about transcribing and there was some interest in it and how I do it and how I got into it, so I decided to make a post about it and share some information on it and also on a few other sites I have been trying out with success so far. So first off, I started transcribing a number of years ago for a company my mom worked for. It was legal transcription. I have been doing it off an on for years and enjoyed it. Pay varied with the type of stuff I was typing but usually was about  $1.50 to $2.00 CDN a page. I could get about 25-30 pages a day so from about $37.50 a day to about $60 a day. Doesn’t seem like a lot, however when I started out I typed about 30wpm, now I am at 42wpm and increasing steadily. It went up for me to about $80 a day. [...]  READ MORE

Yes, that’s right!

I’m going to set aside the health issues for a moment. After a lot of consideration, I am absolutely determined to go back to school. I am 100% sure this is the right thing to do. I have talked to Eddie about it and to my parents and even my brother and they all agree that that’s what I need to do. I know exactly what I want to take. I keep coming back to the same thing. I want to work in web development. I want to learn how to develop websites. Like really learn. I want to make it into a career. I mentioned before in a previous post that I wanted to work with children and while that is still something that I would have loved to do, it’s not really practical for me.

I need to do something that I can either do remotely from home or that I can eventually transition to do remotely from home. Something I can also do as a freelancer. I absolutely love to blog and love this blog so much and love the little bit of coding that I know. I am completely self-taught with the exception of a web design course over 16 years ago which really just taught me a bit about Photoshop, Dreamweaver and HTML and CSS. It never delved into anything else and is so out of date now that I don’t even list it on resumes, etc. [...]  READ MORE

When you needs answers…

First off I just really want to say a big thank you so so much to everyone who has commented or even just read my posts over the last few months. Your support and comments have meant the world to me. Not even one bit of negativity or bashing from anyone. Just all kind thoughts and support and I really really appreciate it. This is why I love blogging and all of you guys!

As you may have guess from the title I want to write a little about things that have been going on with me in part over the last few months but really ever since all of this started years ago. In all of this there is one thing that has really really been bothering me. The need to basically “self-diagnose” because our health care system is so broken that it takes 5, 10, 15, 20 plus years to get a diagnosis and for me at least the diagnosis’s I have gotten just never really seem to fit or make sense fully. [...]  READ MORE
