Funny how I’ve never noticed this before.
Yes, there is such a thing as about-to-be-married syndrome. For me, the most apparent sign is my seeming urgent need to have an extra income. A most natural tendency, if you ask me, once you become aware of all the expenses you are about to incur in preparing for the wedding. True, the norm here in the Philippines is that the guy spends for it. Being a realistic bride-to-be, however, I know I should be able to at least raise a quarter of the total projected expenses… and this is the part where I usually bite my nails as I try to think of ways that could augment my income, without leaving my office desk as I do have a full-time job Mondays to Saturdays.
Internet research brought me to a lot of online business opportunities — some promising millions (most likely scams) while some, a few cents for reading emails, or clicking ads. The latter caught my attention because, hey, a few cents multiplied by a few days could equal to an additional dollar to my name. Certainly won’t hurt… for just sitting on my desk doing what I do everyday anyway.
With that in mind, I joined a few free membership services and watched in fascination as I watch my balance earn a few cents everytime I go online. It has been a few weeks now and progress is slow. I have not reached a required level to request for a payout but I’m hoping to get there soon. (If you’re still reading this, great! It means I have managed to catch your attention too).
While I am not sure if the websites will actually pay me for my efforts, I encourage everyone and anyone reading this to join too. Treat it as an experiment. Help me reach the required payout levels by signing up (I will earn for every referral) and together, let’s find out if they really will pay up!
Here goes then:
Someday, I hope within this lifetime, I will write a report on the result of the experiment and let you know definitely which among the abovementioned are scams. Til then… happy surfing!
And hey, thanks for signing up!
