    Hello all, I am new to this forum but I had a couple of questions I would like to ask.

    I've been searching for a data entry job on Craigslist for the past 2 months and have sent out about 5000 or 6000 emails but so far have gotten no job. So I guess there are just too many people applying for the same job. I'm an American expat living in Asia and so working with local people is not feasible for various reasons, including the tiny wages people are paid here, so my best bet is to find an online job, and data entry is the best one. I had a data entry job before and it was paying really well, like 1600 dollars a month, but the asshole manager just suddenly suspended the project and then stopped communicating with all of us, so I've been unemployed since then. Basically does anyone know where to find a good online job, specifically data entry? Craigslist is useless in this regard.

    The other question I had was I am going to start up my old blog again. My old blog was a blog that was a light hearted and entertaining comedy abouy gender relations and dating, and it got pretty popular pretty fast. I have no problem getting traffic, the only question I have is how do I monetize the blog? I would like to monetize the blog in the easiest way possible, so if you guys could please give some suggestions on how to do that. Also I will use GoDaddy to register the blog URL and domain/host, but I want to make it so that no one can see who bought the domain name, that way I don't get doxxed by SJW types. Can you please tell me how to buy a URL anonymously so that people won't be able to see my name in the WHOIS lookup? Thanks guys

    Oooh a redpill blogger. Nice.

    I'd go with namecheap instead for the domain. Free whois protection and a better company overall. If you want to be completely anonymous, pay with a prepaid debit card and use fake information.

    As for monetization... hard to give a really good answer unless we know what kind of audience your writing attracted.

    Hello and welcome to BHW

    To find job online you can try places like Upwork.com or Freelancer.com

    Here on BHW people search for virtual assistents also so try to search this forum a bit.

    As for blog monetization you can try Google Adsense or it's alternatives.

    I wish you good luck

    Welcome to the forum.

    As you are a native English writer, I would suggest you to concentrate more on writing projects - like your blog. I'm not sure about data entry but I think something that everyone can do gets saturated pretty fast. As a result they start paying low, knowing someone would still do it.

    Once your blog gets more traffic, you won't have any shortage of ways to monetize it. Adsense is one of the most popular for blogs. There are many other networks too. You can browse around the forum you'll find numerous.

    Good luck!

    Try to find physical work for your typing but you can use blogger(dot)com to write article. Blogger is a site of google and you can use Google AdSense for your blog. Assent is highly paying ad network

    Problem with upwork and freelancer and all of those freelance sites is they only let you bid on like 15 jobs a month, which sucks. It's very hard to find a job when you only have 15 chances because you have to compete with people from India and China who are ready to do the job for slave wages.

    If you have no problem getting traffic, why not sell them data entry or writing services or anything else?

    Because my blog would be a politically incorrect blog and to include topics of data entry doesn't really seem to be a good combination at all. Also I would be trying to stay anonymous, so selling my personal services would make that kind of difficult.

    An endless supply of traffic makes it easy to funnel people into different pools. And if you separate the blog and the services then you can advertise and make it seem like there unrelated entities.

    The domain name I wanted to buy at GoDaddy is already taken and being put up for auction and the auction is ending in 9 days. Right now the minimum price is like 150 dollars or so. If I wait until the auction is over, what happens? Will the domain name revert back into normal and will I be able to purchase it for the normal price, which is 2 dollars a year?
