It’s April 2nd already, and we’re 4 months into the year of 2011. I feel at times like I’m “growing up” .. or should I say, “growing old” with this blog. The days and years keep passing by, and day by day, month by month, I keep updating here with my progress of making money online.
I’ve made quite a few friends and acquaintances along the way, and I continue to make more each day. Thanks to all that stop by and leave comments or questions. I really appreciate your support.
Anyway, enough with the sentimental crap lol, I’m here to post all the payments I received in the month of March! As mentioned last month, I’m going to do these on a monthly basis now, just so it’s easier to keep track of things on my end.
So here are all the sites that paid me in March, accompanied by screen shots for proof! Do keep in mind, that many of these sites pay on a monthly basis, so some of these payments are actually my earnings in February on that site. March’s earnings would be paid to me in April. If you’re familiar with “make money online” stuff, you’ll know that’s the way things go on many sites!
Let’s start off with Cashcrate.com. For the past few months, I had been promoting Cashcrate via an affiliate site. In the month of March, I decided to switch things back to my old method of using the Cashcrate referral system! I’m happy to say that with my little experiment, I found that using the referral system was more beneficial to me than the affiliate campaign, and I managed to boost my earnings on Cashcrate.com, while still keeping up my earnings at the affiliate site! I’m not sharing this bit of information for no reason, but to let you know that this is the way things work when it comes to making money online. A lot of the times, it is based on trial and error to see what works best for you!
Here’s my March payment for my February earnings of $35.32 from Cashcrate.com, via direct deposit to my bank account.
As you can see, I also got paid from Google Adsense this month! I finally made their threshold of $100 after my last payment way back in December 2010. The actual amount is blacked out for privacy reasons, but I’ll tell you that it’s approximately $125.
Those were my two direct deposit payments this month. Here is a screen shot of all the PayPal payments I received in March.
The Panel Payments that you see.. are from Pinecone Research which is my favorite survey site to make money online. In fact, I just received a product in the mail yesterday to try.. FREE of charge. I also had to qualify for that product trial by taking a survey, which I got paid to take… and I’ll get paid again to take a second survey where I will give my opinion on the product I tried. I completed and got paid for 2 surveys in March, which add up to $6 total.
I love Pinecone Research. If you’re interested in joining this survey panel, then you’re in luck because they recently announced that they are accepting new applications.

YouData also paid me 4 times for the month, every Friday, which added up to a total of $7.77!
AppRedeem paid me as well, a total of $2.28 for referring 4 people to their site, and downloading 1 free app to my iPod Touch.
You can also see my MaxBounty payment for my February earnings of $261.79.
I got paid $10.37 for accumulated earnings on my lens from Squidoo.
A new name you might be seeing is “TextBroker International LLC”. This is the first time that I have cashed out and been paid by TextBroker. They are an awesome site where you can “get paid to write”. If writing is your passion, then you can make some decent money on TextBroker.com. It’s free to sign up, and I wrote a total of 5 articles in order to accumulate that $11. Each article however ranged from 200-250 words, and a couple of them were 400 words. They took me about 15 or 20 minutes maximum, to write. For my complete TextBroker review, read Textbroker Scam Or Legit? Make Money Online Writing Articles.
The payment for $106.51 is from a sale I made on eBay! The name is blacked out for privacy reasons. I sold a white brand name jacket that I had for a couple of years now, never worn, and never intended on wearing. It was a really cute jacket, but I’m just not a “white” kinda person. So I decided that I could turn that jacket that I knew I would never use, into some cold hard cash. And that is exactly what I did! I’m very proud of my recent sales on eBay.

The other payment for $18.92 is from some private advertising I sold here on my blog. Again, the name is blacked out for privacy reasons.
And as you can see, on the last day of March, Squishy Cash paid me $20.03.
So that’s all for PayPal payments, but here are a two other sites that paid me in March via Amazon Gift Cards, which I sometimes cash out for because I consider it just as good as cash and I shop from Amazon quite often!
Swagbucks and Zoombucks are both “get paid to search” sites, that rewards it members for searching online, just as they would with Google! However, they have both developed in the GPT sites, since they have also introduced ways to earn on their site other than by searching… making it easier to accumulate enough “bucks” to cash out for money, gift cards, or prizes in their rewards section.
Swagbucks sent me 4 $5 Amazon Gift Cards as you can see in the screen shot below. A total of $20.
And Zoombucks sent me 3 $10 Amazon gift cards, for a total of $30. See screen shot below.
Now there is more information about all these sites I got paid from, right here on my blog, but you’ll just have to do a bit of searching. It is impossible for me to go into detail about each one, every single time they pay me. This post is just to show you that it IS possible to make money online, and there ARE sites out there that are still 100% legit and actually do pay!
All these payments add up to a total of $655.72! This brings my total earnings online to $13,606.62!
I’m creeping towards $15k!
