Sorry it took me so long to get back! I have a bad habit of posting and forgetting about it. It is a lot like ChaCha, basically its a text messaging service, people send in questions, I find the answers and send them back. I work from home whenever I want, usually once the kids are all in bed. Its not the best money you'll ever make, but its something, and I actually think its a lot of fun to see what people are asking about, lol.

It sounds exactly like ChaCha. Anyone do both? Curious about the differences...
I tried to do ChaCha, thought I did well on the simulator, but didn't pass so I can tell some differences. First of all, I think that kgb_'s training was much more thorough and well done that ChaCha's. I don't remember what ChaCha paid, but kgb_ pays 5-10 cents per answer, depending on whether you found your own answer or used one of their database answers. I'm averaging $3-5/hr. depending on how busy it is, and how motivated I am. They recently sent out a memo saying they were getting reports of ppl. making anywhere from $2-11/hr. I know with ChaCha you could just sign in any time and take texts. With kgb_ technically you are supposed to schedule yourself ahead of time. However, I find that they are almost always understaffed when I am available (nights) so I don't bother with scheduling now, and just sign myself up for a shift right before I want to start working. Hmm, otherwise I can't think of anything different. Feel free to ask questions if you have them, and I will answer as best I can.
