~kind of pathetic~

~I am poking fun @ myself...this is not a 'whoas-me' post...

~Just to show you how pathetic my life has become...I have resorted to being a ChaCha Guide online. Now if you don't know what that is, don't worry, I didn't know until a friend told me about it a week or so ago. Apparently you can text any question you can think of to 242242 and it will be answered by a live person - a ChaCha Guide.

~I figured it was a way to make some money as opposed to NO money...although it's really close to making NO money. I get .20 for each question I answer and sure it adds up but the last 2 times I've sat down to answer questions, I've calculated my hourly wage to around $5.00!! That sucks!!

~I must say though that I am amazed @ the ChaCha Guide who signed up 1 month ago and already did 5000 questions - holy crap - that's $1000!!! I barely have 216 questions completed and signed up on 7/10. That person must not do ANYTHING else.

~OK~that's how pathetic me and my life are right now...just in case you wondered.

I've never heard of that before. If you ever get to where you're making slightly more money let me know. I need to ChaCha myself out of debt!

That sounds like fun! Silly, but fun. If I had a cell phone I'd do it!

That sounds kinda cool... fun if you're bored. Does any one post silly - stupid questions (I know, I know... there is no such thing as a stupid question *snicker*)

Do you get to choose the questions you want to answer? Like do they go out to all the Guides & then you choose the ones you want to answer or do you have to answer whichever questions get randomly sent to you?

What's the best question you've gotten so far?

Nora-I don't think the money will increase as it's hard to control the speed that the questions come in @ and some take longer to answer than others.

Amy-it may be silly, but I've made $51 so far.

Chele-TONS of stupid questions!!!

Dawn-the questions are random however you set up your profile w/some keywords and questions are routed to you based on the keywords. I got a lot of Red Sox questions yesterday. The downside..lots of inappropriate questions, if you know what I mean.

Ick. Why do people have to be like that? Ha about the Red Sox yesterday huh? Were they all "Why do the Sox have to suck so badly on the road?" =P Because that's what I was asking myself.

Amy said...

$51, I'd totally do it.

Amy-why do I think you are totally being sarcastic?!?!?! :-) I know it's not alot, but it's better than nothing. It also gives me something to do while E is napping.

Mary said...

i've never heard of that - how interesting - and I hope the inappropriate people go away and you get some interesting stuff!!

Amy said...

I'm not being sarcastic! $51 is $51, especially since all I do when I'm at home is sit and watch tv.

Amy - LOL. Well, if you decide to sign up, put me down as your referral..I may get something, not sure.
