When I did my weekend blog hopping, I chanced upon Liz’ blog "Blog Guardian Hellsite: Overcashed, and read about how she earned $111.00 from oDesk. I was impressed because the highest payout I had received from one site so far was only $85.
I got curious and clicked on her link to oDesk. I liked what I saw, so I signed up. At first, I was ready to give up because I found out that I had to pass the oDesk readiness test, and at my age, I do not fancy reviewing for an exam anymore, lol. But as the cliché’ goes,” no pain, no gain” so I chewed on my nails and motivated myself to read on and give a little effort, just for 10 minutes. I passed the exam and realized, it was not really that difficult.
I modified my provider’s profile to add the links to my blogs and my other writing ventures and applied for a job; that was December 12, 2009.
I was excited to get into the heat of the action. I applied to at least 20 jobs.
I was ecstatic when two replied, and I got my first job on December 24, then another on January 2, and then more. I even declined some because I would not be able to meet the deadlines.
As of this moment, I already earned $ 270.50 and there are still ongoing articles, they have not paid yet.
I could earn more, but I am now the one who is giving up with so many job offers. I could earn as much as I want, even up to a 5-digit mark, if I do not have a full time day job.
What is even more amazing is that I earn as I learn, and writing for oDesk has been an enriching stage of knowledge acquisition.
I traveled the world, from Shenzhen, China, to the Pantheon in Rome, to the Merlion in Singapore.
I learned about the specification of road bikes, that my birthstone opal is actually colorless, and many more valuable information that I would have not obtained if I have not written for oDesk.
I have the passion for writing and I am happy that I could share information to people online while I learn simultaneously. Perhaps after several more months, I may be a walking encyclopedia. Lol.
Thank you, oDesk for this significant and rewarding experience.
