Hi, I'm relatively new (well at least to the forum). I started HITs in 2009, but stopped doing them because back then it seemed kind of pointless and mind-numbing, but I started back up and finally passed the qualifications for most of the transcription, so my goals are to do at least 3 transcriptions a day, and try to make at least $30 a day between that and other HITs. I think this is totally doable. My other goal is to work on getting my HITs up to the 500 mark. yes, I know I said I had been on Mturk since 2009, but when I started back again in late last year or early this year, I only had like 6 HITs. I am up to 338 approved, only 2 rejections, and 16 pending, so I am getting closer. I am hoping to make this a really good part time income. I feel that is possible especially with the transcription.
