    Afaik, EE don't pay the members for answering questions, you only get access to the answers. That is, I wasn't paid for my answers there, albeit I didn't post much.

    Ok 937...

    This goes for everybody here... When you say the word "work" ... that is vague and difficult for me to provide any value on.

    Tell me what you mean for WORK.

    Let me give you an example of the first 3 hours of my day on a Monday:

    9 to 10 am - create copy to send to my target market to add value (to current customers) and encourage purchase (to on the fence people) ...this will be sent out over the course of the week
    10 to 11 am - measure conversions and optimize split tests to increase purchase rates from last weeks marketing
    11 to 12 am - implement copy into marketing campaigns and setup campaigns for the week

    I'd like to see a little more detail here for me to help.

    I personally think a habit of checking sitepoint (as a priority) can make you poor, not rich.... Notice the delay in my postings here. I check it every couple of days.

    I'm excited to see more detailed responses. If you give me a detailed layout of your first few hours of the day, I'll be able to help you identify some profit pockets in your day.

    So far I havn't heard of anything that directly or indirectly results in taking money or getting money from people for a service or product.

    Well it depends on what project I have going to what I am required to do in terms of my skillset and how I distribute my time, it is hard to go into specifics when your schedule is unstructured and is reliant on something which changes on a daily basis. I do not chat here to get rich, I do it because people require assistance and personally I feel an obligation (well actually it is more like a compulsion ) to help (in terms of answering questions as opposed to contracted work - which of course I charge for my services) as it is down to people with experience to pass their knowledge to the new generations so they can avoid the same pitfalls we have fallen into through the past. As for not hearing of anything which takes or gets money from people for a service or product? Have you not heard of pay per click advertising, subscription services or donations?

    techno? nope

    hippie? oh yeah

    i left home in 1967 and took a room just off campus to go to the University of Toronto (i shared this room with another guy -- the rent was $9/wk each, we had a hotplate in the room and shared a bathroom down the hall with other tenants of the house)

    1968 was a tumultuous year to be a university student (vietnam, mlk, bobby kennedy)

In 1968, nearby Rochdale College at the University of Toronto was opened on Bloor Street as an experiment in counterculture education. Those influenced by their time in 1960s-70s Yorkville include cyberpunk writer William Gibson.
    yeah, i was a hippie

    Don't blame yourself.

    Money is very important but not that important. And Sitepointers can be a bit... unpredictible, as you have just seen

    @XPosed - In General Chat, we talk about very relaxed subjects. In general, people are happy with their lives and don't require help when it comes to timetabling their work.

    Us Humans are very intelligent creatures. When we aren't happy, we do what we can to change that. So if we aren't earning as much as we should be, we may still be happy and, in the end, that's what life is about; Happiness.

    If we never visited sitepoint, facebook, never watched TV etc we could earn maybe double what we do; However sitepoint is a community and as such we enjoy sharing our views and teaching other members. That's just who we are. Sure, we may earn more otherwise, but the fact of the matter is we are happy doing what we do.

    Ja, ja, don't require help when it comes to timetabling but could do with six figures now and then (if it means we don't need to put in more work )

    In my experience that is even not the case. So it happens that I do those things (except facebook and often TV) to satisfy my needs, if I didn't do that I'd do something else but it would adress the same needs, not other, like making money.

    One would say I have to rearrange my needs somehow. But if I'm not so crazy about making money, maybe there's no point in that. It comes natural.

    Unfortunately I have an internet connection!

    I tried ripping myself away from sitepoint. I failed. Miserably.
