Making Money Through Ebay and Article Writing

Choosing not to work for the time being while waiting for our Singapore dependent passes to be approved, was a tough decision I had to make.  Although I am quite thankful I am able to see the Little One in her first few months of life, I am and will forever be a career woman and the idea of not being able to work and earn my own keep frightens me.

So when I came back to Manila, I decided look for a few ways on how to make money online just to ease off the boredom and break the monotony of life.

My ebay.ph profile


One way of doing it was to reopen my Ebay.ph store.  I used to sell my old books through this online site as a way of decluttering my collection.  But with the impending move to Singapore, I find that I could sell some most of my babies off to good homes while at the same time earning a few extra spending money on the side. (Note:  Shameless plug.  Please visit my store, username christine00900, if you have the chance.  You might be able to find something of interest.  J)

Another way of earning online is by writing articles.  I signed up with essays.ph, a local site that offers writing assignments for website content (read my full review here.)  The nice thing about this is that I am given the freedom to choose my assignments.

The internet is indeed a wonder and because of this, earning from home has never been this easy and more accessible to everyone.  J

  1. It's nice that aside from honing your talent, you're earning from it also. :)

  2. You should try out Freelancer.com and Elance.com They are both very safe and they pay in dollars, so better chances of earning more :) I've been using them for five years now.

  3. you're right! the internet s full of opportunities. got my own writing tasks, too and it kept me busy. but motherhood (and being a stay at home mom while kiddos are young) is my vocation. i feel guilty letting them watch tv or play on their while i finish my tasks... so i ended up working at night:-(.

  5. Hi Tin! You're moving back to Singapore na pala? Anyway, I used to sell on eBay too---but I stopped it because of lack of time and I just ended up using the money I earned to shop for stuff there too :) hehe. But eBay is indeed a good place to sell online---i find it really has more "guaranteed" customers as opposed to Multiply.

  6. @michymichymoo: I agree. Writing has also been provided such solace for me whenever I feel bored and disheartened.

    @Wonder Woman: Thanks! Will check on that too! =)

    @myrockingcradle.com: I know what you mean. It's just so hard trying to find a balance sometimes. =(

    @anney: So true. I know a lot of people who quit their jobs just to get into this kind of work. The work environment is indeed changing bit by bit. =)

    @The Sunset Goddess: Yup! We'll be leaving by end of March but I'm still lining up a lot of posts regarding the Phils. So it will be a few months on before I'll be posting anything SG-related. Hehehe! =D

    I haven't tried multiply yet but ebay.ph and sulit are the ones I trust most. And you're right. I find more sure buyers in Ebay. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
