The order I purchased from Dave Ramsey came today. I'll probably spend the entire weekend reading through these books and getting the envelope system started. We need to open a joint bank account (married a year and still haven't done that, lol) and get all of the direct deposit stuff worked out so that Jerry can close his account when we go to Atlanta. In two months! D:

Still waiting on ChaCha to switch me back to being an SMS guide. I don't know what's going on with these guys, but I'm conflicted. I like being able to make extra money whenever I want to, but I really don't like how they treat their guides.

In the meantime I've been writing my butt off. Got 20 articles up on Ehow over the last week. Got a couple of new pay per click campaigns running. Going to try and get some article marketing going. Wish me luck!

What is Ehow? Is it paid work? I know ChaCha is paid work but would you reccomend it? :) Reason I'm asking is because I'm curious about web-based paid work in my spare time.

Ehow is a website where you can write "how to" articles about anything you want and they will pay you a portion of the ad revenue that is generated from your articles. It's nice because you can do the work once and they'll keep paying you as long as your articles are making them money. I'm averaging about $10 a month off of 20 articles right now, so I think you'd need to write in volume to see a decent monthly income over time.

What I like to do is write my articles and then submit them to multiple sites, like eHow, Associated Content (they pay upfront, btw), Squidoo, etc...

ChaCha, on the other hand, is hard to recommend because of the recent pay cuts they've made. Regular SMS guides make 10 cents per query. If a guide answers 200 questions or more with a quality score of 95% and up, then they will make 20 cents per query the next week. You have to continually meet the requirement each week to get that bonus, though. It sucks.

They have another position that Jerry really likes because the work is a lot faster and involves categorizing the questions as they come in. The downside is that it only pays 2 cents per query. Might as well work in a sweatshop, if you ask me.

Here's a couple of articles I wrote about different online jobs and writing online:

Hope that helps! Good luck. :)

Yeah, Marc does the categorizing like Jerry. At about $3.00 Marc said "Stuff this!" XD;; lol. I think he'll try to get to $10, which is the payout then stop for good.
