Learning to make money online from home is really all about experimenting and finding what works best for you. I'm still trucking along with Mahalo. I've even recently been added to their QC Team, so I've made about $200 on Mahalo alone in the past three days. It's great work, but I'm still not convinced the residual income will be high enough.
My next attempt at bringing in some cash is through niche blogging. I've started Become A Petsitter,which will be a place where I attempt to bring in a combination of AdSense and Affiliate revenue. We'll see how it performs, and I'll be sure to update here with that information.
