Not Everything Is Just One Click Away

I feel a bit sad today.

I joined a paid to read and rate articles site and have already made $20 from it. For days I labored to read these articles though I find some boring. I usually do this while I toggle through reading my emails, looking at facebook and reading forums on just about anything.

Through these forums, I read about a paid to chat site (I dunno, I felt naive at that time and a little bit bored,too) that I also joined. I was chatting with one of the members asking me to join a paid to click site when this member mentioned that my paid to rate articles site is a scam. I felt devastated. I said, "Oh no! You have got to be kidding me! I'm so addicted to it already and I'm almost halfway through cash out!" Then the member said "It's for me to know, and for you to find out!"

So to cut a long story short, acting on impulse, I joined the PTC site. This time I felt productive and was able to cash out at $0.05, better than nothing,huh. I don't know what's happening to me. I don't know why I'm joining the bandwagon when normally I would just snob such offers. Am I getting desperate? Desperate for what?

I dunno. So far this craze has just led me to a series of unfortunate events. I've yet to know if my paid to rate articles site is really a scam. It better not be, or else, I'll really blog about it and give them a mouthful of words. More than all the words in their articles put together.


  1. Taking a guess here.. Readbud?

  2. This happened to me while I was pregnant and waiting to pop out. I think two people hired me to write articles. One was Filipino in Canada who paid me 2 canadian dollars for each article and one from Middle East who promised to pay me (I think it's for SEO). The one in Middle East (who really wrote in terrible English) didn't pay me. I think I wrote $80 worth of articles already. But the Filipino paid me for each article I wrote. It's just that I don't like the topics he gave me and so I gave him up. Ganyan lang talaga Jeanne pag bored :) I felt I needed to be productive too because hubby was working and I wasn't.

  3. Have you tried oDesk sis? There are many article writing jobs there.

  4. @chew on this. kaya nga mare eh puro nursery rhymes and fairy tales ang mundo ko ngayon. kakaguilty kasi when hubby complains na ang laki ng bill ng credit card, and so on and so forth...sayang naman ang creative juice kung pwede namang pagkakitaan diba?

    @cha: I made an account there but so far i've not yet finished making my profile, no readiness test yet whatsoever. I don't even have a cover letter for my resume. And the interview portion scares me. I might try oDesk sometime.
