Stay at Home Blessings: Income from Home 2011

At the beginning of 2011, I made a post about my Income from Home for 2010. Looking back, I see that the venues of my online earnings this year was totally different from that of last year's.

I have requested those who would join my blog's 4th Year Blogging Giveaway (I hope you join if you haven't) to write a post about ways of earning from home. Now, I would like to share how I earned from home last year. This is my list of make money online from home for 2011.

1. : I am blessed to have been employed as a VA (virtual assistant) since January last year up to the present. It's just a 1-2 hour job 5 days a week but it is the bulk of my earnings from home last year. I also did some other jobs like article writing, rewriting and spinning. Income: approx. $75 per month.

2. Aside from oDesk, I also got some article rewriting and spinning gigs occasionally from this site. Income:  approx. $500

3. HubPages: I talked about how I earn from HubPages in a couple of posts already. I am happy to say that this is one passive way of earning income from my article (or hub) writing. Because unlike in being hired to write for others where I get paid one time, in HubPages, I get to earn some again and again even when I often write only 1-2 articles a month. However, it's not that easy. I also have to do my research. Income: approx. $30 per month.

4. Blogging: Blogging is just 4th in my list. Earnings came from showing Adsense ads, sponsored links, online contest prize, paid posts (I don't do much of this) and Adgitize. At least, I got back my investment of $10 for this blog's domain name. For my other blogs, I just use free sites. Income: approx. $20 per month.

I'm not posting this to show off. I just want to encourage others that it is possible to earn from home through legit sites and avoid the work from home scams.  It is indeed a blessing because I get to do full time care for my 5 kids (no house help) and still earn some. The income was also very timely as we had to help pay for additional expenses for my mom's cataract laser surgery.

The future is still unclear whether my husband will be having a new job soon. So, maybe I might need to do more work from home this year. Thank You, Lord, for the opportunities you sent my way.

Congratulations Chin for finding your way to work at home and at the same time attend to your kids. Such was a perfect arrangement for a full time Mom like you. Reading few of your posts from last year made me admired your strenght for having able to raise 5 children and at the same time find the opportunity to earn from home and augment the income of the family. Not all people can do the same. Cheers for a more fruitful year this 2012! :)

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
