Before I get things started, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Darkness447 and I’m a broke community college student studying full-time along with balancing obligations to my family, hobbies I enjoy, and a simple social life that I’m content with. School does not allow me to work as I have a full load along with terrible scheduling that makes it harder for me to attain one. For almost 3 years, I’ve been earning a few dollars a day on various websites in order to supply myself and it has been an enjoyable and challenging experience called beermoney.
From the UrbanDictionary, beermoney is “extra money for non-essential payments, available for spending on luxuries, hobbies, or a fresh pint of your favorite draft.” It can also be considered “discretionary income” in the sense that money you make on the side can go towards other necessities or expenses you wouldn’t otherwise have made. I know that not many people are enticed to make money earning a few cents per day, and that’s okay, but by taking into account the amount you could save up from these websites in the long run, it might just be worth it. There are times when I’m frustrated earning on these websites because of site functions , or a new ad quarter has started meaning that these websites must create new negotiations with ad and content providers lowering the amount of potential earnings for many users, or simply the site themselves changing various earning avenues that vastly affect the majority of its user base for no apparent reason. I have experienced these things quite commonly, but at the same time, there are also new boons of opportunity to earn elsewhere if you look hard enough.
I’ve earned over $5000 on multiple websites over these past 3 years, and it’s not a lot obviously, but that’s money I wouldn’t other wise have if I never started back then.My college tuition is free but I still have to pay for books, and receive allowance that barely covers the necessities I need like books and food. Beermoney helped me buy a new computer, allowed me to treat my friends, and pay for expense to help my family out in any form I can give. Beermoney CANNOT compare to a job and definitely not a career. A job is a job and all that it entails as well as a career that defines your future, but beermoney is an opportunity in the digital age waiting to be taken advantage of. I’m happy to share if you’d let me get stated.
