The Reason For the Title of My Blog

The reason for the title of my blog is that eventually, after trying all of these work at home opportunities and squandering all of my hard earned money on these so called jobs that had failed, I had come to the decision that I would never try another work at home job ever again.  It was just too costly, and it took up too much of my time anyway.  Having 5 children and barely being able to make ends meet, I knew that I could not afford to try any more work at home job opportunities.  Although it seemed to be the end for my work at home dreams, I had never stopped thinking about it, and I had never stopped dreaming.  I ended up working 3rd shift for many years just so I could be at home with my children.  That was really rough trying to be up all night working while also being up all day and being there for the kids.  Working 3rd shift really wore me out.

After many years of 'knowing' that I would never be able to make my dream come true, I watched 2 of my daughters get jobs where they were working at home.  They both worked for ChaCha.  They worked on their computers and got paid for answering questions when people texted ChaCha for answers.  I tried to do this myself, but I failed their test.

One of my daughters came to me one day.  She knew how I felt about working at home to earn money.  She was always offering suggestions of which nothing was ever anything that I would even consider getting into after all that I had already been through.  Anyway, she asked me why I don't just write articles online.  She told me that she had joined a website called eHow a few months back and written a couple of 'How to' articles.  She had never continued this, but she was earning a few cents on there.

Boy was I ecstatic!  I had never heard of this before.  I could not believe that it was possible for anyone to write articles online and get paid for it!  I was also quite scared.  After all, I didn't know how to write 'How to' articles.  I didn't know anything that I could write about.  There was no way that I could be helping others by writing articles.  Yet, on the other hand, if she could earn a few cents with a couple of articles, maybe it was possible that I could write many articles online and make some real money.

It was free to join, and you could not be turned down.  This is when it hit me.  I was off and running.  Rags to Riches Working at Home.  Do it or die.  You had to earn at least $10 to get paid, and I figured that I would eventually be able to earn $10, so I started writing online at eHow.

This was the best thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.  I will always be grateful to my daughter for suggesting writing online to earn an income by working at home.  I put my all into my writings for 2 1/2 months.  Everyone thought that I had gone crazy, except for my daughter.  All of this hard work did payoff.  I earned over $100 writing on eHow in my first month.  You should have seen me dancing around the house when I saw that I had made my first penny!

I'll have to continue this with another post, starting with the reason why I only wrote on eHow for 2 1/2 months since it was such an awesome way to earn money by working at home and I so truly enjoyed it.  I think this post is already long enough.

Here are the first few articles I wrote on eHow:
How to Not Run Out of Money Before Your Next Paycheck
How to Play the Game of Life at Rite Aid
How to Rid Your Home of Junk Mail
How to Get Started Making Money By Working at Home
How to Find Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

The second article is the one that has really changed my life forever.  I really felt stupid publishing that, too.  I thought it was too dumb and I should have deleted it instead.  I still thank God daily that I didn't delete it!
