Work At Home Jobs

Lately, I been trying to find ways to earn money at home. I thought I'd try legitimate work at home jobs. So I carefully selected the one I was most interested in.

At first, it was very luring. It seemed to be a easy way to earn some extra money. And the entrance fee was less than 100 dollars. It was highly recommended so I signed up for it.

My problem with this legitimate work at home job was the hidden fees. What started as a small fee of less than a hundred dollars quickly became something wherein I would have to invest thousands of dollars just to get started. That's thousands of dollars I do not have.

I refused to invest money I did not have. I lost the membership fee and learned a lesson that was well worth learning. First and foremost, work at home jobs are not for me. I'd rather earn money writing.

But in order to earn money writing, I have to learn more about writing on the Internet. I have two books: One on writing style and the other on writing blogs. Writing has many advantages. Two immediate advantages are that there are no membership fees and no hidden costs. So here I am.

I like hearing about writers getting books published. Getting ebooks published is easier than ever, however getting people to buy them requires marketing skills. I realize it is easy to make a book that is an e-book. They have so many competitors for that market that getting them to sell even at a dollar ninety-nine each you only get a quarter in profit for each book sold. LOL. Getting on the best seller list is what it takes to succeed in real earning potential. Oh well. I'm off to write another article. Happy Happy joy joy.

There are some jobs you can do at home that don't cost a fortune but as you say, it is difficult to find them.

i would be very wary of any site that asks you to pay them so that you can make money. I have tried several make money at home ideas over the years. i wrote a post recently about writing sites in particular which you might want to check out and i plan on doing one on other types of sites either tonight or tomorrow when i have time
