Earning power...

Tomorrow we head off on our journey, and of course I am not entirely "ready to rock". There is still some more work to do before they will give me a visa, we are still going through the process of getting the marriage recognised in Chile.

With my very limited amount of savings (more like none), I will have to make do, until I can begin working. A website I have been using for a long time is called Rewards Central. Unfortunately I haven't kept consistently at it, although I have decided that now is the time to do that. They give lots of rewards for online shopping etc, but also for answering surveys and clicking ads etc. Of course it's not a good earner, but I have been able to cash out my points into money a few times before, and should be able to cash out some more soon. I just did a survey this morning, about meat pies, of all topics! I would consider myself very well qualified to answer those questions :)

Anyway, hopefully that can add a little bit to my finances, which would best be described as "unstable". Of course going travelling in Asia just before moving overseas probably wasn't the best idea, but everything should work out well (hopefully). I am also going to look more into some of these writing websites, like Triond, which claim to give you money in exchange for writing. If I'm going to become a Master of Writing, that would be a good start...

As for Francisca, she is quite likely. She has been working as a research assistant at the ANU, focusing on Internet Research, and will actually be able to continue some of that work from overseas, which is a great opportunity.

Let's see how everything goes...a good challenge in life...
