My Job? I Work From Home

Yep, that is my job. I work from home and I love it. I mean, it has it's ups and downs -like any job- but I still get to do something I enjoy. :)

The main thing I do is write. I consider myself to be a freelance writer, as I complete assignments for clients, and of course I pretty much use this website and a similar one for blogging. It gives me a creative outlet for earning in between my actual writing assignments.

I occasionally work on microjobs, paid surveys and similar websites here and there. It's nothing to live off of, but it helps when I'm saving for something specific, like my vacation last year, and my vacation next summer!

I also babysit this adorable little munchkin, who I consider to be my nephew. He's just a baby so he needs my attention during the day. Sometimes it is frustrating trying to balance everything, but I do love him to pieces.

There you go, a little glimpse inside my work-from-home life. It is nice to share with people who understand, because you know some people look down on it. But that's life, and I know where my money comes from, and I know I work hard for it lol.

Well that was straight to the point, wasn’t it haha? I'll catch you guys later. :)

The way i look at it, Tammy, you're doing an honest day's work and that's what matters. I know a lot of young adults who make little to no contribution to their households. They don't work or go to school. Or if they work, they do a poor job and often get fired. They expect to be fed and sheltered and entertained, and they don't so much as pitch in for groceries or help with the chores.

Be proud of your work, however humble. You're doing what you can, which is all anybody should be expected to do.

Thank you very much! emoticon :smile:
I still live with my family, but contribute financially and pitching in, including babysitting the little ones when need be (which is nothing because it's usually my four year old niece and we are EXTREMELY close). Anyone who objects to me working from home? Well I ask them how they think I made it to Wrestlemania 29 week last year, which was a $1000 trip. I worked, earned and saved up MY money. :) Otherwise I don't brag or anything, and try to help my friends who cannot find employment by pointing them towards the same websites I'm on.

I know what you mean by 'people looking down on it'. In my family only my wife really understands what I do online. Everyone else thinks I'm playing computer games all day! :)

Exactly! I caught an ex-friend trying to say that I sit home on the Internet all day, which is not true, especially now that I babysit as well. Granted it was after our fight, I was still annoyed considering she knew what I did for a living and it seemed like she was just trying to make me look bad. I ignored it though even though I wanted to go off. Working from home is still WORK, hence the reason it's called WORKING from home.

If you can make a living working from home, I don't know why anyone would look down on it.

Yes,, that is my main thing I do is try to make money online. I play a few games but I am online more to try and earn. My life would be even better if I could make enough money online to never be dependent on an outside job again!

Sounds like a busy life. I used to do more freelance writing, but now I just do what I want mostly.

I praise you girl! I am a stay at home, with another on the way and I have been unsuccessfully and constantly searching for something I can do from home. I feel almost useless not being able to help supply an income. I love writing, yet all the writing jobs I seem to find are a dead end. You seem to be doing everything you can to better yourself! Keep going strong and rock on!

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 2, 2014, 10:28 PM

Neither do I. :( I guess because it's not the traditional work-outside-the-home job. It has it's perks, and it's downfalls (i.e., I pay taxes in April).

It takes time and a lot of work, but it IS possible. Do you write for clients on paid content websites? Is it against the rules to give you any of the website names?

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 2, 2014, 10:30 PM

I enjoy freelance writing, but I do need to expand my clients. Step out of my comfort zone, so to speak.

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 2, 2014, 10:30 PM

Like I asked someone else, is it against the rules to give you other freelance writing websites? The names, not the URLs, and maybe those could be of help? Thank you so much for the comment. :D

I haven't had any luck on anything other than the bubs for blogging for pay. Trying my hand here so I can put my eggs in more than one basket so to speak.

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 4, 2014, 5:23 PM

Right. And I can always send you the freelance writing websites I am a member of, though I think I already did? I'm not sure.

acrogodess914 wrote on November 4, 2014, 8:47 PM

I did try one but they only accept me as a level 3 and don't have any assignments available for my level when I log on. :(

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 6, 2014, 4:59 PM

Oh. You just have to keep checking back, a lot, and you can write level 2 and 3 posts. The more you write, the better chance you have of being raised to a level 4.

acrogodess914 wrote on November 6, 2014, 8:46 PM

Tweet me the name of the site again, it has been awhile since I checked in. Lol I was so grumpy at checking daily and being told I wasn't qualified or not seeing anything.

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 9, 2014, 9:50 PM

I don't think mentioning websites are against the rules. It's Textbroker, right?

acrogodess914 wrote on November 10, 2014, 2:19 AM

Okay. I thought that was it but wasn't sure. Thanks :)
