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…

Grand Bahia Turqesa Dominican Republic

This is an all inclusive resort in punta Cana. It is a complex of five resorts and this is the furthest from the beach and the cheapest. I really enjoyed it the staff were all friendly our housekeeper didn't speak English and I only speak a little Spanish but it wasn't a problem she was always around we could communicate what we needed. There was only one bed in the room we wanted two so they came right away and made the day bed it was comfy. There was always a tram available to take us where we wanted to go but we spent most of our time at our resorts pool lobby and buffet which was only a few minute walk or at the main hotel which had shops and a casino was also a short walk as well. We did take the tram a few times to see the restaurant and other resorts a couple of time just because it was a fun ride. The beach was beautiful they kept the sand so clean the first time I thought it's really rare that sand is so soft with no rocks in it but the second time it was windy a…

New York Fries Poutine

Image
I was excited to find out the gravy is vegetarian as I haven't had New York Fries gravy in over 20 years. I really haven't had poutine in that long I have had a few speiality vegetarian ones but they really haven't been poutine they have been fries with toppings. I was excited to be able to have something that resembles poutine even though I knew it wouldn't be authentic. I enjoyed this the fries were crispy and hot, the gravy was tasty and ther were a lot of cheese curds. I would have liked more gravy on this. The only things I would improve would be more gravy and it would have been nice if the cheese curds were slightly warm. I ate the whole things so it was good I will have it again and next time I will ask for more gravy.
