    I’ve tried two different times to make money with surveys. Neither time was successful. Was I just doing something wrong. Can you really make money taking surveys?

    Hi Karen:

    Although many survey companies are scams, there are a few good ones. You will never get rich doing this, but you can make some extra money. I would suggest doing a bit of research on WAHCheck.com and see the ones they have listed. Here is the link:

    I like your blog. I am a stay home mum and have been working online from home for one year. It is possible to earn good money, but it took me some time until I found a legit online job. For me it was paid surveys, but you need to be careful because there are a lot of fake sites.
