    I just joined a few days ago, after being referred to the site by a friend. How long have you been a member of mTurk.com?

    a month or so

    I've been doing this about a month. I'm VERY part timeish, Basically just to fill free spaces in my day. I've made like $70 and it has helped pay for baby stuff.

    Ryan,

    Do you normally do $ offers or penny offers? I have come to realize that the majority of the $ offerings take a good while to complete.

    I tend to do $ offers. 350-500 word articles have been my best profit numbers. I think fast and type fast though.

    Also the 3-5 cent offers can be good sometimes. As can 50 cent type things.

    I love the 3-4 cent ask a question ones. I also love the 4-5 cent rewrite a sentence ones.

    Don't chase the 10 cent find a product or 3 cent moderate images ones you'll waste more time refreshing and getting denied then they're worth.

    Basically some hits of all values suck, some are great. A lot depends on your individual skills.

    I joined about 15 months ago, did about 40 cents worth of work, moved to a new city and totally forgot that I signed up until right before Christmas, when something sparked my memory. I logged back in (my 40 cents was still there) and started doing some jobs. It is a bit addicting, I must say. And sometimes frustrating. But no one is forcing you to do these.

    I started last year in October and have made close to $150.00. I know it's not a whole lot, but I have part time jobs and am just now getting brave enough to try higher paying HITS again. I was jilted about $1.50 once for re-typing someone's article one, so I wasn't eager to volunteer for the higher paying ones for a time.

    I agree that being declined after you have tried to complete quality work can be frustrating.

    I've been on it for about two months but haven't started to really get into it until two days ago.

    I've been on MTurk for almost a year and in that year I've made over 850.00 and that's just barely part time. I like it because if I need money in a pinch or need to pay a bill I usually can gather up the money pretty quickly.

    I have been doing this for only about three weeks. I have had times where I enjoyed the tasks and other days when I can't find anything worth my effort.

    I've been doing this since the end of September, when I accidently happened upon it somehow. I can't remember how I happened on it. I think somehow I was bouncing around amazon, and then I have been working on it since. I love doing it.
