    ...and waiting on my account review on Mturk (~12 hours down, ~36 hours to go).

    I'm going to try and knock out my first 1k HITs as quickly and accurately as possible, and go on from there. I hope to average $25+ a day eventually.

    I'm currently unemployed with regular internet access, so I plan on working on that a lot. Making a little money has to be better for me than reading mass amounts of fanfiction as a time sink, right?

    I'm three days later starting than I should be. My email decided to dump my registration verification in the junk folder.

    Anyways, I'm on and just made my first 5 cents.

    Welcome! And congrats on your first earnings... It can seem like slow going at first, but stick with it. You'll find the more you learn and the more you do it, the easier it will get.

    First Days Statistics:
    Submitted: 71
    Approved: 64
    Rejected: 0
    Pending: 7
    Earnings: $2.21

    My pending stuff is worth ~$1.89. So total estimated earning today are $4.10 for about 6-7 hours of work. That's not great, but to be expected this early in.

    Also, it won't let me do any more today. I thought the daily limit (first 10 days) was 100? I'm at 71.

    @tmama: Thank you! It is so far, but I'm stubborn and determined to make this worth my time.
    I'm certainly hoping it gets easier (transcription isn't so bad unless you're deciphering some Doctor's handwriting, but we're so very underpaid there either way).

    If you let hits expire or returned some it counts toward the limit. I actually started mturk when I was on unemployment too years ago (googled Free Amazon Gift Card and found some blog linking to it). It's very nice turking while on UI, combined they make for serious income, you're probably gonna be hooked

    Ciao tutti

    I'm new too and awaiting 'verification'. Summer is my quiet time for me so I'm looking at making a few $ to pay for nice things I shouldn't be buying! Still over 24 hours to wait so I'll be spending my time reading the board and planning a strategy.
