    First post here, love the site, been having fun reading the threads, so hopefully I won't get eaten up.

    Well, some background on me. I'm a 21 year old male, with a young 20 year old wife, and 7 month old child. Since I've turned 18, I've been the victim of two mass layoffs, homelessness twice, and anything else that'll attack an impoverished person. Have I been hungry? I sure have. Have I been cold? Well, I live in the nice mountain state of Colorado, and had the opportunity of calling a certain 21st Street bridge my home through the entire winter of 2011.

    Anyway, nowadays, we're back on our feet. The job situation sucks, and when we finally got into an apartment of our own in January of this year, we had to race to get a job. She had the baby in March, and had a job by April. We both pounded the pavement, and she actually got the job I had applied for twice, right from under my nose haha. But because we don't have a car, and how sprawled out the town we live in is, I had to take up the duty of watching our daughter, since it's not practical to be able to take our baby to daycare everyday. I'll have another opportunity to work in January, when our lease is up and we have to move. Hopefully, the job situation locally will be a little better on my end.

    Anyway, so until January, I do need a way to bring in some side income. I made this thread, basically, just to say, and my wife agrees, we're tired of being so broke. We're used to it, but especially with the holidays right around the corner, and neither one of us have families or money to do anything with, we could really use the extra money.

    Now as far as my experience in online money making goes, I'm addicted to Amazon's MTurk, and I can consistantly pull 50 dollars no problem in 4 1/2 hours if I actually sit down and do it. I've got a little hustle going on there though. However, due to the type of high-paying hits I do, they aren't available all the time.

    I've also tried to blog to use Adsense, but wasn't successful at all.

    But if anyone has ever been in my shoes at one point in their lives, and they made it out and are now a little more "financially free", maybe we could sit down and talk?

    I love to learn, and even if I don't get any information I can actually use, I still love to learn about things, because hey, you never know what situation you might be faced with later on down the road.

    so yeah, thank you for having me, and I'm anticipating a great membership with you guys.

    Hey, squarenix, I can't PM you yet, there's a 15 post restriction on the board before I can send you a PM. I just downloaded Yahoo messenger though, and added the account you have listed on your profile though.
