That blue bar across the top of the webpage that says home, forums, reviews, etc....click on the one that says groups. It will take you to the MDC unjobbing group.

We have a new feature that allows forum members to create "clubs" of their own that have many of the same benefits of a forum, including multiple threads, a member's list, and group messaging. All tribes are invited to switch from the one-long-thread here in FYT to the new Social Groups. You can read more about it hereLet me know if you have any questions but please post to that thread so I can keep everything in one place. smile.gif

Now that I think about it, I think someone may have mentioned groups before. I never looked it up but I'm about to. Thanks!

I know this gal that just made the most amazing birthday cake for her daughter, it would have cost about 80 at the store she said. She made four or five practice cakes to get it right. So my idea is someone could make birthday cakes for less than the stores... It's not just cooking but a really cool art form... okay idea over:)

Ive been working on cakes for a little while. It's a bit harder than I thought it would be (and m. fondant is a witch to work with) but yeah you can make quite a bit that way. Some people charge loads for a cake. I wish I had the skill.

Also, I am unjobbing like crazy these days... just added credit counseling consults for an investment firm to my repertoire (added to the regular ghost blogging, running people's social media channels - and custom consults for social media, tax preparation, resume writing, etc.). Unjobbing is hard to describe... I sort of have a bunch of little tiny jobs, but I'm my own boss, set my own schedule, and sometimes I do X, and sometimes Y or Z. I don't see it as a permanent lifestyle choice as much as just how I'm getting myself through school without having to put my little guy in daycare until he goes to school. 


Moo.

Has anyone done virtual assistant work? I just found this site that you can apply online with. Work 2-3 hrs/day 5 days/week from home w/a salary and benefits?! http://ctiny.com/jobs

Just got invited to do surveys by PineCone Research. According to this site, they're one of the best... Anyone have experience? I used to belong to a couple different ones years ago, but the payouts were so low I got tired of doing it.

I think Pincone is one that I'm either with or was with. I'm with a few and can't remember at the moment. I've been telling myself to keep with the surveys but haven't been doing as good a job. I've yet to reach payout level due to that but I'm for anything that brings in any extra. Have you tried swagbucks? You can get points easily with it and I sometimes use it for paypal cards. If you're interested here's a referral link.
