Being rich – quick thought

Being rich is all about spending and not about wealth. When you’re spending less than you can afford you are a very wealthy person.

Manage your desire, find your own self and what makes you truly happy inside, spend within your means and you’ll feel the richest person on the planet.

I bought myself a new monitor, second hand of course, within my budget and I’m really happy with it.


One step forward : online surveys – first payout requests.

One step forward in the hunt for a first return of the online activities, the first payout request as submitted, both for Toluna and Thepanelstation. If the payments comes through it will be the very first money made online. And also it will move both sites up to the category of 100% genuine. I’m preparing a page on that one.

It’s all part of the plan, $99/year is needed to be able to monetize this site, it would be 30% on the way to get there, for the first year with both payouts. The next steps would then be to secure the the $99/year for the following year. Then it’s 100% focus on producing value add content.

All part of the plan, step by step, we’ll get there.

I got my first visitor

A milestone has been reached, I got my first visitor on this blog, either intentionally or as fluke, whichever, it did happen.

It might be a small feat, but nevertheless, calls for a little celebration. And I would say that’s what we all should do more often, celebrate the little things, enjoy what you have when you have it. Tomorrow you still might have it or not, but that initial feeling will be gone.

I did not get a prize yet on my submission to Jovoto, which is fair. It’s my first attempt and I didn’t put enough time and effort in. Lesson learned and it’s a motivation to do better and bigger next time.

That’s all for now tomorrow is another day.

This has taken long – don’t give up your job just yet and I thought I had my first visitor.

It’s been a while since I last posted something, not because I had nothing to say, but more so because I was busy with probably way too many things than that I should have. On top of everything¬† I had to work also.

I’ve been doing surveys and adding survey sites very diligently over the last couple of weeks. And I can for sure tell you not to give up your job just yet. Maybe if you’re in a large economy you might be able to gather a bit of cash on a weekly basis, but if you are in a smaller place, away from the big countries, forget it. it’s not going to happen. The closest I am at the moment to earn some money is on Toluna, maybe a week or two before I can initiate a first payout.

My aim is to still be able to run a parallel online income stream. First target is to get sufficient payout from something to be able to get this site in it’s own domain.

Additionally doing some design challenges seem to be fun ad a possibility to generate some cash. Not that I am a great designer, nor that I have a specific talent, but at least I can give it my best try and see how far we get. If you want to seen what I’m up to, check the submissions I made on Jovoto.

And I need visitors, for a moment I thought I had one visitor, it turned out that it was myself who had looked at this from a different computer. Was almost about to jump a hole in the air. I guess I just need to increase my presence, use better tags and post more. I’m learning. Slowly. Will get it right at some point.

Sure thing.

That’s all for now.

First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

I’m trying to start a blog and I’m already struggling. Nothing seems to be as easy as it seems. But then again others have done it before and others will do it after, which leaves me in company, good or bad is debatable.

So step by step I will work on this sometimes a bit more, probably more times a bit less, all based on mood and time.

That’s about it for now, more might follow.

The picture below came with the design, it’s not mine, nevertheless, it is quite nice, a bit cheesy, but I’ll leave it there for now.
