Freelance Writer? Earn Some Extra Money With Devtome

Earn money writing about what you like

devcoin_icon_marticpsYou might have come across various websites that claim you can make extra money doing simple tasks like stuffing envelopes or writing articles. If you are one who has attempted to earn money with them, you probably quickly found out that they were mostly scams. I might have even tried some of those a few years ago and was never paid a dime for my troubles.

So, is it really possible for anyone to make money just by writing? The answer is yes, there are sites such as Fiverr and Odesk that allow freelance writers a way to make some extra income. The problem with these sites you could be the best writer in the world but never gain any traction on these sites because nobody really trusts that you will deliver what you say you will.

These are the reasons why I really like writing for Devtome. I will try and lay out the steps below on how anyone, from anywhere in the world can earn extra money writing on the Devtome Wiki and earn Devcoins as payment. You will never be paid in cash for your work, but you can trade your Devcoins for Bitcoins or other alt-coins at the exchanges (such as Vircurex) and either spend them or cash out though a service like Coinbase. It might sound a little complicated but it is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Cut That Coinsurance With Group Accident Insurance

Do you worry about your deductibles and coinsurance?

Cut That Coinsurance With Group Accident InsuranceAbout this time every year millions of people go through the dreaded open enrollment period put on by their employers human resources department. I have been a public employee for over 15 years and have gone though several of these enrollments. I never enjoy them. This period usually causes people a great deal of anxiety over wondering if their benefits will remain the same and/or if they will have to pay more out of pocket for their medical and dental care. I have been lucky over the years because I have always had employers who offered good quality health  insurance at a good price. Sure, the individual and total family deductibles have crept up over the years, but the core medical coverage has always been good.

The Procrastinator's Guide To The Holidays


Procrastinator's Guide to the HolidaysHow many people accept the fact that they wait ‘til the last minute every year to buy a less than memorable present for at least one friend or loved one? Probably more than will admit to it.  I’ve wandered down aisles (sometimes THE day of a get together) in panic mode plenty of times.  The truth is, no matter how much we like to think we’re on top of things, most of us procrastinate at some point or another.  Especially this time of the year.  It’s not like our regular lives get put on hold just because of the holidays.  We still have to go to work, pay bills, grocery shop, etc.   Life has a pesky habit of getting in the way of the fun stuff.  So it’s not my fault that you ended up with a turtle chia pet that one year.  Deal with it.  Plant some basil or something.

Getting on the Path to Financial Success - Where Do You Start?

Getting on the Path to Financial Success - Where Do You Start?When I talk to people about money and finance, they often ask me - Where do I start? What do I need to do to put myself on the right track? I always reply with a question and ask them if they have a set of clearly defined financial goals and whether or not their finances are organized.

I am a firm believer that these two things - setting powerful goals and organizing your finances are the foundation of financial success. Every financially successful person I've ever met has mastered these concepts early in their life and career. And if you want to be successful, you should master them as well.

Biolife Update : The Pros And Cons Of Donating Plasma

Who couldn’t use some extra blood, er, plasma money?

Biolife Update : The Pros And Cons Of Donating PlasmaIf you read my previous article on donating plasma through Biolife Plasma Services, you know that I have been making some extra money donating plasma. I want to give an update about the pros and cons that I have experienced during my donation process so that you can make an informed decision about getting some extra “blood money”. I have pretty much been donating twice a week on Mondays and Saturdays (you can’t donate more than twice during any 7 day period) because that gives my arms plenty of time to heal. I probably won’t keep this donation rotation up on a regular basis as sitting in the donation chair for about an hour at a time can get a little monotonous even if you have your cellphone to play with and/or watch movies. It is serving its purpose for now and I am happy to get the extra spending cash.
