First the good news: Clickworker continues to pay, and compared to EVERY other online income scheme I've tried, pays very well indeed! Here are our Clickworker earnings for August:
August 6th - $51.84
August 12th - $21.62
August 19th - $44.60
August 26th - $23.96
That's about $140.00, which ain't bad. Yeah, I know to a guy like Pat Flynn it's just peanuts, but I'm not at Pat's level yet, okay!
Now the (ugh!) bad news ........
This is shaping up to be an "interesting" month financially. The tenants of our condo back in Columbia have moved out. They did give a 30 day notice, but our management firm didn't bother to let us know until the end of this month! GRRR!!!
Fortunately I had cashed in stocks last month, before the latest "crash", and paid off the ridiculous AMEX debt. Going into this situation with credit card debt would really suck.
How bad are things? Well, after paying bills, I wasn't sure if all our mortgage checks would clear! Thank God for Clickworker and PayPal! Remember that $140 I earned on Clickworker this past month? I put in a request to transfer that amount from paypal to our checking account yesterday, (Sunday!), and by this morning it had already transferred over. Hooray! No bounced checks!
Realistically, things aren't all that dire ….. yet. We are paid ahead, (until March 01, 2016), on our auto loan, so we can use money set aside for that to pay the condo mortgage until the condo either rents or sells. All I have to do, in the meantime, is keep my job. (Happy, happy, joy, joy, right?)
While we're on the subject of employment/financial freedom, let me state that I tend to admire J. Collins, (other than the wonderful J. Money, of course!), more than other financial bloggers, probably because, like me, he is an old fart. I can relate more to his outlook, (f**k you money, for example), than I can to the concept of super early retirement/financial independence/never work again. I even think the venerable Mr. Mustache is sometimes off base with his, "save your money and quit" mantra. (Yeah, that's an oversimplification, but you know what I mean.)
Enough philosophizing! It's time for my, (drum roll please!), standard Clickworker verbiage:
I truly believe Clickworker is the only website worth bothering with, and wrote a quick review of my experiences with it here, “http://buyingnirvana.com/words/clickworker-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/”. I would highly recommend everyone to give it a try.

Until next month, good luck with your online earnings!
