Hourly rate increase in Odesk

The past 2 months, I had a difficulty in having new projects in Odesk. That is why 2 weeks ago, I decided to lower my rate from $3/hour to $2/hour. After applying, I immediately got a response from the buyer. He first asked me if I want to work on his project since it is for guns and ammunitions. I said that I am willing to work and he immediately gave me the instructions. Then after reading the instructions, I reiterated to him my understanding of the instructions and asked some questions that I have. In all my projects, I always do this. I don't want to bill hours to my buyers when the work I am doing is wrong. He was very happy with me and decided to give me 50 hours a week. Since his payment is not yet confirmed, I decided to research a little bit about guns and ammunitions so I have a general understanding on what I am doing.

After a few days, he was confirmed and I then started working on the project. When doing online jobs, you need to be resourceful. Don't ask "common sense" questions to buyers because they might get irritated if you are bugging them with simple questions. We must understand that they are also busy.

Then today, I received an email from him. He said that "originally you posted $3.33 for this job and I see you are only being billed at $2.22. I have seen a way to pop in a raise somewhere but don't recall where. I will make sure to balance this out somehow." I was like ecstatic when I read this. Then I gave him the instructions on how to increase rate in Odesk. In a matter of minutes, he changed my rate. Here's the screenshot.

But wait, I received an email again and would you believe my buyer also adjusted the work I did.

I guess this is the result of my prayers. I prayed hoping that I will have a generous buyer and Thank God.

The problem I am having right now is how to allocate my time. Because aside from Odesk, I also have an online job outside of Odesk. I'll make a post on it later. I am planning on giving it to other providers.

Random thoughts...Guerilla blog or not...

I've been thinking to consolidate all my blogs into 1 blog. At first, I thought this isn't possible because I haven't encountered blogs that talk "everything under the sun". But good online friends told me otherwise.

In the past, I wasn't able to update my blog regularly. The number 1 reason is the unavailability of time but I guess I'll just think of a way to have an allocated time for updating my blog. The other reason is the limited topics that are connected with the original entries of this blog.

I am still a newbie when it comes to blogging and I just want to research first before I plunge in to anything. But if in case I will consolidate all my blogs, the topics will focus primarily on earning opportunities especially online. Every once in a while I might delve on topics on health & beauty, products I recommend, budget tips, experiences in the past.

I am having a difficulty on thinking of a unique blog name. Any suggestions are welcome.

Update on Odesk job

It's seems like forever since I last updated this blog. Sorry for not posting sooner. I was quite busy with my online data entry job, managing homebased business (smart link cards, eloading business, scrap business and assisting my parents on their business based in Japan (computers, electronics, ships).

I read in a couple of forums that some people are sceptic with online jobs. They say that online jobs are scams. I know for a fact that there are numerous sites promoting as online job sites that ask for joining fee/membership fee. But I understand their scepticism but I know that ODesk really pays and they don't ask joining fees. I wouldn't recommend anything unless I have tried it. And for that reason that is why I decided to check my total earnings in ODesk.

Below are the screenshots of my earnings. I didn't realize that I have earn this amount already. I didn't know that it is possible to earn an amount like this just by staying at home.
