5000 hits on Mturk and online earnings update October 2020

Image
I finally hit 5000 hits on mturk. This is a milestone for many mturkers because it has potential to open up more hits. I only do things I enjoy on mturk so it took me years but I am happy I finally did it. Although I don´t spend a lot of time on mturk you can see that over the last few years I have earned over $1200 US dollars which has given me some nice entertainment money. I work on many different platforms in my sparetime I think my goal for this year was $1500. This is doing things I enjoy in my spare time. Many of these platforms are based on ad revenue and the pandemic made that decrease. Things are coming back now but 2020 has been a special year even in the online earnings world. I don´t know if I will make the goal this year but I will definately be able to get to $1000 this year. I have cashed out $750 this year and hopefully the rest of the year will be better. The platforms that are good constantly change and part of the work is finding platforms that have good work…

Vegan Mayonnaise airfryer bread

Image
I was curious if vegan mayo is good for baking so time for some experiments. I am not a baker and do not measure ingredients I like to experiment. This turned out amazing I have already made it twice slightly different method. Method one came out pastry like and method 2 was more like deep dish pizza crust. Both were excellent. I don’t measure ingredients but I’ll try to give you a recipe. Method 1: ingredients vegan mayo, flour, olive oil


Add 1 tablespoon of yeast and vegan mayo to 1/2 cup tap water in a bowl mix with spoon. Add 2 cups of flour and mix with hands keep adding flour until consistency looks like this
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature. I put mine inside the Instant pot. After a few hours it will look like this.
This is a fun dough to play with it doesn’t fall apart easily. Add a little olive oil before shaping the dough. 
I tried cooking some but it was better after being in the fridge overnight. 
After letting it sit in the fridge overnight I stuffed so…

Day Trip to Harrison Hot Springs

Image
I have rarely left the city where I lived for the last 7 months as we are in a pandemic. This is a day trip to Harrison Hot Springs which is a little less than a 2 hour drive from where I live. 
Video on YouTube 
Thankfully I live in an area that has low virus cases and local travel is allowed. My mom and I both have not left our houses for more than a few hours a day and were concerned that we would run into issues of needing a bathroom. When I was younger we would often spend a few days in Harrison so we know the area. The resort is very nice but we currently wanted a place to go for a few hours. It’s almost the end of summer and although I live in a beautiful city it’s nice to go to somewhere less city like. We decided to leave at 1100 so that we would have a few hours of daylight. Our intention was to go for the drive, have lunch, walk near the lake and come home. We were not sure if the hotel and restaurants would be open due to Covid restrictions and knew the public pool was close…

Experimenting with 2 ingredient bagel air fryer recipes

Image
I have used my instant vortex plus airfryer oven almost daily since I bought it in October. I am in airfryer oven Facebook group and people keep posting the 2 ingredient bagel recipe. The original recipe is self rising flour and Greek yogurt. The time I decided I wanted to try this was a couple months ago when the pandemic was starting and I couldn’t find any flour. I finally found organic all purpose wheat and pastry flour. I couldn’t find baking powder or self-rising flour and I had Dahi which is an Indian style yogurt not Greek. I also have organic baking soda and I like to experiment.


I set the oven to airfry which is 400 degrees and the timer for 10 minutes. While it was preheating I poured some flour into a bowl and added the yogurt mixed together and shaped some of the dough into a bagel. The big bagel in the picture is just the two ingredients. That one will be a future doughnut recipe. 
Then I added some baking soda to the mixture and shaped into a bagel. The small one on th…

How I celebrated my birthday in 2020 while most of the world is in quarantine

Image
The area where I live is one of the lucky ones so far our health system has kept up with the number of cases but we are mostly self-isolating to prevent the spread of COVID19. I’m still allowed to go outside, grocery store, get take out. I work from home now but in the evenings so other people can work during the day. Now on to my birthday.

There is noisy construction near my apartment so that woke me up around 8:30.  I often go to Vegas to celebrate my birthday and always stay at my favourite hotel there which is South Point.  I put the slippers on while I checked my messages and social media.


I have been trying to do a workout in the morning. I really need this for stretch and not to sit all day. I have beachbody on demand which I have used for years. Shaun T is my favourite trainer so I did Rockin body it’s an old workout but feels like a dance party. 
I haven’t had a coffee shop coffee in almost two months there are a couple places near me that are open for take out. I am thinkin…

2020 the year the world the changed and my personal journey ie journal

I am not sure if I will publish this but it is time to write this is just a personal story on my personal blog. A couple weeks ago life changed around the world with COVID-19. Prior to this I was going to start blogging again about my journey with Fibroids including my first Ultrasound and MRI but I have a procrastination problem. I already had so much stuff going on in my life this year that I had stopped watching the news. I was getting through by looking forward to my 6 month old nephew visiting here for the first time and maybe a future trip to Vegas. I also really like my job, have the best boss, and most of my social connection happens there with people that have very different backgrounds than me. Over the last month I knew that things were going to change as our government was advising us without making us panic. Then two weeks ago everything changed here as we were seeing things happen in other places and then the last week almost every country has been in some sort of stay …

2019 Internet Earnings $1500 Goal Not Met

A real quick update while I analyze why I did not meet the goal this year. I earned $1220 which was $280 short of my goal. There are a few reasons I did not meet this goal the work in mturk was harder to get, I needed a new computer so went months without working, and I did not spend the time consistently through the year to meet this goal. Towards the end of the year I found some new sites and think I will be able to earn more from these in 2020.
