Scoring for Pearson - They are Hiring!

I just wanted to let my readers know that Pearson is currently hiring people to "score green at home." You can apply online to score elementary, jr. high and high school aptitude tests online.

Working at home as an online scorer generally requires a college degree. All training is paid and the hours are completely flexible, you log in and work whenever you wish for Pearson.

At home scoring is a great work at home gig if you qualify. The work is not steady. They send out email seasonally in the fall and spring, as school begins and ends, to check your availability and interest in upcoming projects. If you apply with them, it's a good idea to whitelist them in your email, so you don't miss out.

It's Payday at Squidoo

Well, it's payday again at Squidoo. As you can tell by my blog posts, Squidoo is the only place I'm spending my freelance writing time these days. I haven't had a lot to say about other writing sites, because I haven't been writing anywhere else.

Squidoo's payments have been phenomenally high for the last 3 payouts. Today, October 13th, I received my highest payment ever from Squidoo. It was $717.74. You can see my full earnings history at Squidoo by scrolling halfway down the page Today's earnings are listed there as August, because that is the month they were actually earned. Squidoo payout runs 2 months behind.

Like all good things, I fear this will come to an end. Over the past 6 months, I've noticed it becoming increasingly difficult to keep a lens ranked at tier 1, the highest paying tier. I've also noticed an explosion of new members writing at the site, making it more difficult to find untouched topics to write about.

I am going to keep being loyal to Squidoo and write as much as I can there, while I have the opportunity. Squidoo may eventually have all the content it needs, and writers will be looking for a new gig, but for now I am going to enjoy the ride.
