It’s been a while, and I know everyone is missing me! Here’s a little of what’s kept me away from the site for a bit:
-We’re getting our hardwood floors refinished (YAY!)
-My son is now cruising on everything (He climbed several stairs un-aided today!)
-Emily and I are performing with the C.A.S.T. production of the Addams Family at Highlands High School
-I’ve been checking into various opportunities to work online, including Freelancer, Odesk, and Slice the Pie (full disclosure, the slice the pie link is a referral link–which could help me out!)
Currently, I’ve bid on a project on Freelancer, but haven’t heard back yet. I haven’t bid on anything at Odesk yet, as that site seems a little more complicated, and my time has been limited!
On the other hand, Slice the Pie lets you basically jump right in and get started reviewing songs. The site pays a little for each song that you review. By a little, the most I’ve made on a review yet is less than a quarter. The good thing is that each review can be completed as the song plays, and you are only required to listen to 90 seconds of the song.
I have yet to figure out what the criteria is that will make for a more lucrative review, but rest assured I’m working on it!
More than that, I figured everyone would like to know, YES, I have been paid! I have put in some time over at Slice the Pie, and I have been paid for it! Now, let’s see if I can make minimum wage with it…which I haven’t yet, but each review you complete raises your rank, and I guess you can get friend referrals.
It also works on my iPhone, which means that the majority of time I spent on Slice the Pie was actually time that I would have spent on Facebook…
Regardless, it’s kind of fun to write stuff about people’s music, and get paid. I’ve heard some really great tracks, though I’ve also heard some terrible ones! Take a look–it might be worth your time, it might not, but they do actually pay money, even if it’s not much.
