Your Questions About Blogging Successfully

Get a part time job, but a lot of stuff going on?

I want to get a part-time job, preferably at home, but it doesn’t have to be.

However, I have a lot of stuff going on right now and will throughout high school. I do Marching Band, Track, Boy Scouts, as well as all my AP and Honors classes.

Is there a way to get a part-time job but still do all my activities? I know there are a lot of scams out there, data-entry is usually non-legit. Blogging takes at least a year to get slightly successfully as well as having to write essays almost everyday to keep it successful.

Does anybody have any ideas on this?

Suggestion – forget about the “work at home jobs” – they are pretty much all scams. It’s not just the data entry, but also the surveys, etc – the only way you really make money is by sucking more people in to sign up for these schemes. If a “job” tells YOU to send THEM money, for training, materials, or some other reason, it’s not a job, it’s a scam. Real jobs provide those things at their expense, not yours. There are a few survey sites where you do get paid for doing surveys, but typically something like a $25 gift card after answering surveys over several months. I assume you are hoping to get a regular paycheck – maybe not huge, but at least something reasonable. Forget about things like the people who claim to make a couple thousand a month. Notice that pretty much all of them just signed up for this board in the last day or so – maybe because they got booted off yesterday for spamming/scamming?

You sound really busy, in good activities. You need to figure out how much extra time you have, to work and still keep up with all the other things you are doing, or if there’s something you can drop out of your schedule. To be honest with you, fitting a job in with all the other things you mention might just end up with grades slipping, no time for activities that interest you, and more stress than it’s worth.

The advantage you have is that you must already be very focused and hard working, and pretty organized, to keep up with all that you have going on already.

For a job, you’d obviously need to have time available. Maybe weekends could be available, since that would be a little easier to arrange your schedule around a job. But that might also be your only downtime and catch up time – and you DO need some time to have fun and be a teen.

Does your schedule settle down a little when you aren’t in the middle of track and marching band season? Summers might end up your best bet for time for a job.

Good luck.

Mark asks…

How do I get a job writing content online?

Hi, I’m a web designer/developer with a passion for blogging and journalism. I’m wondering if you have any advice on how to make money by professional blogging or creating/editing content for the web? If you have done this successfully, I encourage you to share your stories on how you did so. Thanks.

I’m a freelance writer and I create content for a couple of area online:

1. I set up my own blogs and websites on subjects I am interested in and then sometimes use ad revenue through Google Adsense to make money with the content

2. Create content for others via bidding at freelancers’ site like Elance or create commissioned content for a site like Demand Studios

3. Write articles for websites like ehow and Infobarrel to create ongoing residual income.

I make the most money through my own website but the other options all add up too. I like the idea of the residual income generated from the articles in option 3 as once you have written the pieces they just keep (gradually, and very slowly) making money for you without you doing any more work.

No real get rich quick schemes though I’m afraid. Although I believe if you have a great idea for an eBook and it takes off you can make a considerable income – I haven’t tried that yet!

Besides that – have a look at Auto Profit Machine! They do guarantee income for everybody even totally passively…
The key to this guarantee is the 70/30 formula which means everyone promoting his link for this opportunity gets 70% of the traffic generated to their link and 30% of the hits generated go to a company rotator with everybody else in.
