I didn’t post an income report for April and May. Since I have promised myself to be very transparent with the growth of this blog, this post will cover the incomes of April and May. 

Income report for April – 

Total hours worked  –  43 hours 3 mins

Total amount billed  –   $301.34 (approx. 19,100 INR) 

Income report for May 

Total hours worked  –  138 hours 35 mins

Total amount billed  –  $970.08 ( approx . 61,400 INR)


As you can see there was a huge fluctuation in my income during the previous two months. That is one of the downsides of being a freelancer. 


I could have easily hit 160 hours last month. I moved to a new place during the end of last month. At least 3 days was wasted on moving to a new place. Moreover, I didn’t have my laptop for like 3 days from May 1st till May 3rd. It had to be repaired.


And the month of June has been going great so far, despite many hindrances to my work. I have already netted $500 till 19th June. I should be able to hit at least $1000 this month, my highest expected income so far. Let’s see how it goes.

After making almost $3000 online, I started this blog to document my own journey as a search engine evaluator aka Google rater, bug hunter, website usability tester, and blogger. Now I teach others how to make money online through genuine work from home opportunities. I've been featured in Huffington Post among others. You can read more about my personal struggles and successes in making money online here.

    I just discovered your blog – interesting thing you are doing here- well done!
    I have a small question as I haven’t encountered the answer yet – does Search Engine Evaluator job in Appen (or any other similar company) require min no of hours worked?
    I am just looking for an extra remote job, apart from the job I have. I have a little spare time now and wanted to use it wisely 🙂
    Thanks for the response!

      Hey so sorry for the late reply. As long as you are not an American and working in Appen and not in other companies, you don’t need to put in a minimum amount of work. You only need to complete a set amount of tasks which can be done in like 2-10 hours a month depending on the type of tasks that you complete. Tasks duration differs with task.

        thanks so much! I applied for the job couple of days ago, waiting for he reply. Fingers crossed 🙂

    What are the time limitations for work in Appen?
    I eager as I’ll be giving the qualification test this week.

    1. Sam Narzary

      Depends on project. Some got no limitations while some are limited.

    No income report from June………..are you not working on leapforce anymore.

    1. Sam Narzary

      I am.. I had an accident and I will admit, I have been little distracted these days. But I am still working. 🙂

          Thank you. Means a lot.

    Hi, Sam, I took some time to read all your blog posts and I can understand your feelings of struggling from discipline and time management since I am in the same phase of working online quitting the fucking day job. Your blog is really helpful for so many people including. I really appreciate your honest of showing income proofs and the knowledge you provide on this blog. Here it is observed that there are no posts after May. I’m looking forward to your posts. Thank You so much.

      Thank you for the kind words. Really appreciate it. Keep hustling !

    What all websites/companies you are working for as of now.
    I did the aptitute test for crispthinking few hours ago. Usually how much time will it take for them to reply. What happened to your application to crispthinking.
    Even my application at Leapforce and Lionbridge is still pending. Can you throw some light on these applications.

    1. Sam Narzary

      As I mentioned somewhere, we can only work for one of the four companies – Appen, Leapforce, Lionbridge and ZeroChaos. All their clients are the same. We may work for iSOftstone at the same time while also working for those four companies.

      Unfortunately, I haven’t heard back from CrispThinking either. And Leapforce can take anywhere from 1-6 months. If it has been for more than months, you can re-apply again. Have you applied for Appen? I think you should check them out. Their pay is less though ($3.5 per hour).

      I have a friend who applied for Lionbridge few weeks ago and he is appearing for qualification test now.

      1. Dharma tej

        Thank you for your prompt reply.
        Yes, I have applied for Appen 2 days back.
        I have gone through all your answers on Quora and on your website. Now it’s clear that it may take a minimum of one week for Leapforce and Lionbridge to reply and may even take months. I think my resume isn’t good enough for that position. I have graduated in civil engineering recently without any prior work experience. I am thinking to update my resume and will reapply after a month or two, if I don’t get any response from them.
        Thanks for your help.

        1. Sam Narzary

          You are welcome buddy. Good Luck.

          And I don’t really know what is it that they look for in resume. I wish I were their HR, but unfortunately I am not.

          Work experience shouldn’t be an issue. If it has been more than 6 months, re-apply again. If not wait till its 6 months. Because if you re-apply again, it will just keep you at the back of the waiting list, and not the other way around.

          Good Luck.
