The Truth Is...

I have been feeling down lately and this is what comes out of me when I feel depressed. Some may hurt. Some may sound wrong but if you look closer, all this is true.

- I try to be nice in all the site I write for. Most of them promise to pay us for our efforts. But if you come to think of it, if you sold your content as a freelance writer or spent more time working in an actual job, you would surely make a more realistic earning compared to the cents being drizzled all around just make us feel rewarded.

- I cannot help but think less of people who pretend to befriend me and end up just offering me something they are selling or promoting. It is downright disappointing.

- The truth is I am going on websites like this one because I am hoping to earn more money to help my husband with our expenses. I am getting quite impatient with the developments here. Don't get me wrong. i like the site but I feel like writing here is taking up too much of my time.

- Lastly, the truth is I am just frustrated and tired. I hate being broke and not being able to give my kids what they want.

I understand how you feel. Its frustrating being on the computer for long hours creating an enjoyable post for your audience & trying to generate income from it. Take a step back & breathe. Don't give up because it's hard. Keep going & you will start to make the money you want. Don't get too upset. The negative energy you bring to the table will effect how you write & how you run your business.

Before we start on any site it is good to see what the site offers. This is a young site and their payment will not be much as of now. One needs to have patience and with more presence on the Net it is expected that they will pay more. Those who want to earn big offline job would be the choice.

I am certainly not one who is above struggling with the feelings/emotions you're suffering through, and we all have our need to vent. However, one should read the fine print and know 100% what they're getting into before signing up for anything online. I don't know a single thing about any of the other writing sites, and I don't plan to look into it, but as I've touched on earlier, if you're doing this for the money, you're in it for the wrong reason. At these rates (and I do know other sites are not that much different) you'd need to be on here 24/7 to generate anything you could call an income. This is not to denigrate PP; it is only my opinion. I know there are many out there who cannot find are unable to work, but if you're looking for sites such as PP to pay your bills you're coming at it from the wrong angle.

Sometimes it is difficult, and infact very difficult to come to terms with realities on the ground. Online writing is not as "lucrative" as it is talked about by those doing it - that is a fact. Lots of people use online writing as a means to keep afloat and not as the ultimate source of income. There are very few sites that pay real good money for jobs done online - very few and far in between. So since you are here, make the most of the site and of your time too.
And as for being depressed when one is broke, you are not alone Sis - I also struggle with that but I have learnt to just shift doing things when the money to do them is not in my pocket and I get some relief and happiness from there.

I cannot say that I understand, as I am lucky enough not to have such misery as I have witnessed in friends of mine. I do understand the need to get money for the family, and the frustration when it doesn't happen.
Give yourself a number to do each day and although tiny it will surely be profit...wish you well..

I can understand your frustration. I used to be able to make much more writing on line, but then all the sites decreased the amount they paid. I guess they are no longer making much, either, so they have less to share. Maybe you should do more real freelancing.
