So, nearly a week ago, I took a 7 hour coach trip to Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland. I’m here working over the summer to gather the funds for my Master’s Degree in October!
I must admit, it’s a big struggle!! A few days ago I was in tears because a) my back was killing me, and b) it is really long hours manual work! (Cooking, cleaning, ironing, etc).
But, I’m hoping I can stick it out for the whole 3 months, until mid-September, not only will I get a fat paycheck for my work here, but I can explore Isle of Skye AND gain hotel experience so I can do it again if I want to.
I haven’t seen much of the Island yet, only the sights on the coach trip, and Portree itself. Here are some photos:
If you’ve been following my blog, you may have noticed that I also mention Steemit a few times.
That’s because I blog on Steemit. And I get paid to do it.
Without getting into too much detail about the ins and outs, let me just explain that it’s a cryptocurrency blog. At the moment, a lot of people are on there who are crypto-geeks. I’m not. But I’m trying to get with the new trend as I believe it’s going to be the new brilliant thing.
You basically blog and people can upvote if they like the blog, which is where you earn money. The most upvotes, the more chance of getting money.
You also have a chance of getting a payout on upvoting blogs yourself. If you upvote on a blog that eventually does really well, expect a small cut of that.
Anyway, after finally getting my CoinBase account sorted (where I convert the cryptocurrencies into Sterling) I converted a small chunk of my earnings the other day and look what has finally gone into my account:
That’s right, I have made (from a small chunk of what’s still in my account) £108 already!
The first £6 was a small payment (and a returned fee for verifying a bank account with CoinBase) and the second, was 100% earnings from Steemit!
I wrote a post about Steemit a while ago, probably months ago now, and I was really excited about it.
That fizzled out a few months ago, back in the summer, because although I became popular quite quickly on it, I had no way of cashing out.
Steemit uses cryptocurrencies, and although I was 100% committed to giving it a go and trying to learn a thing or two at least to cash out and earn some money writing, I was faced with lots of issues.
But since I have finally managed to get a cryptocurrency style account sorted (CoinBase) I can now cashout on my well-earned Steem Dollars!
Here is a view of my Steemit account. It takes some time getting your head around it, but as a blogger, you can blog and earn money by people upvoting!
You too can contributing by upvoting other works. Even comment and interact. So come meet me, follow me, and I will certainly help upvote any writers, poets, photographers and artists alike, I only ask you help out in return!
