Data entry is another category that seems to be popular among those looking to work from home. If we search online we can find almost anything, but usually ‘honesty’ isn’t a part of that equation. I can’t tell you how many sites I’ve signed up with that basically won’t pay, nor acknowledge that there is an issue. I know that is one of the main reasons I wanted my own blog: too much going on that some people choose not to discuss, but I WILL 🙂
I have seen many opportunities to earn come and go over the years I’ve been earning online, but one I thought would phase out “captcha-code typing’ is still around. There are many people who’ve said those sites pay well, but I try to stay away from posting such positions because you basically get fired for making mistakes, who needs that?
I figure the average person is much like myself in that we’re looking for the one thing that will either satisfy us because we enjoy it, or that we make enough money from it that “joy” is not necessarily a factor. I never really thought about a typing job until I started researching online and discovered all of the ‘virtual’ employment available.
