Why does anyone want to earn money online? This question was raised on a popular paid to post website by a friend of mine. She has been earning money online for a few months and decided to make a discussion on this question on Mylot and then asked everyone to go to her blog and read her reason for wanting to earn extra money online. Then she invited everyone to make their own post in their blog about their reason and link back to her and she would do the same for them. So I started thinking about why I want to earn money online and decided to write this article about my reasons for wanting to earn money on the internet.
My reasons for wanting to earn money online are a few very good reasons. First reason is that I can’t hold down a regular job because of my mental health problems. I have Social Anxiety Disorder and Bi-Polar Disorder and because of this I cannot be around a bunch of people all day long without either having panic attacks or fighting with someone. I am on medication for it but it doesn’t help like it should and I’m still trying to find the right kind of medication to help me. So with having the freedom to earn money from home I can stay at home and keep myself relaxed all day without having to worry about being around too many people and having major problems from it. Before anyone judges me please realize you are not me and you don’t know what this illness really is unless you have experienced it yourself. This illness runs in my family and there was no way to avoid it. I am not the only one besides my family that deals with this. I have met other people online that also go through the same thing that I do. It is a hard life to live but at least I can work from home and not have to worry about having any attacks.
Another reason and the second most important reason is that I have been searching for online work for over a year so I can help my family make ends meet. Before I found Associated Content I was never able to help any of my family out with anything. I had to listen to their problems and know there was nothing I could do to help them and that really sucked. I hated hearing my mom and dad talk about this bill being due and that bill coming up and I knew I couldn’t do anything about it. That is all changing with the money I’m earning online with Associated Content and a few other places.
My third reason for wanting to earn money online is that now I have a reason for getting up in the morning and I have something worthwhile to do with my life besides sitting at home and doing nothing but cleaning house all day long. I still get my house cleaning done but I have something else to do that allows me to earn money from home with my writing.
Now when my family calls me during the day to ask me what I’m doing I can say, “I’m working online right now can I call you back?” Or, “I’m writing an article for Associated Content right now but I can save my work and take a break to talk with you for a few minutes.” Instead of saying, “Oh nothing. I’m bored and a little depressed today.” I now have something to do with my life and I have a purpose. People can say all they want, “But all you’re doing is writing articles how can that give you a purpose?” Because I can now have my voice heard through my articles on Associated Content and I can tell everyone who reads my stuff about things that are important to me. I can write about things that I have experienced and earn money at the same time. Some might say, “But can’t you do that with a blog?” Yes you can do that with a blog but the only way you earn with a blog is if you talk about money making things and run ads on your blog. You can earn money with running other companies ads but it depends on the traffic you get and the clicks on the ads. With writing articles for Associated Content I can kill two birds with one stone. I can write about things that matter to me and earn some nice extra money at the same time.
So the option of earning money online and making a living writing articles helps me in many ways. I can work at home in my own pace without being around a bunch of other people, earn money for my writing which I enjoy doing anyway, help my family out when they need it and write about things I know about and have experienced in my life which also helps with my anxiety and depression. So to my friend who made the discussion on Mylot, here is your answer and everyone else’s.
