You’ve found a blog about making money online (or sometimes a blog about how to not make money online).
I fit the profile of most people who are looking to make money online. We have day jobs, and probably don’t like them much (at least, when I started looking into making money online years ago, I didn’t like my job. I’m fortunate enough now to have a job I absolutely love, but looking at ways to make money online has gotten to be a habit). So we’re looking for a way to make a living online.
The attractions of an online income are numerous. Work in your pajamas (or nothing at all) when you want to work. Sleep in, stay up late, make money when you’re on vacation, make money sleeping, etc.
Unfortunately, there are a huge number of online opportunities that are marketed to take advantage of the person who wants to escape a job they hate and are willing to pay money for opportunities they think will get them to that goal without much work.
This site, then, is dedicated to the idea that making money online doesn’t have to be expensive. But it also requires some work. And for those of you looking for the next silver bullet, I’ll review the opportunities that would have appealed to me when I first started, and let you know which ones look good, and which ones look like scams.
I’ll spend the money and take the risk, so you don’t have to.
My hope is that by steering you in the direction of opportunities that have a better chance of working for you, you won’t get discouraged like so many people who get lured in by hype and then fail at programs. Keep working at it, and you can get what you’re looking for.
If you have an opportunity you’re thinking about, and can’t find a review of it on this site, let me know what it is and I’ll give you feedback on it.
