{July 21, 2013}   I got a Scribie Invite

I am super excited to have a Scribie invite.

Ok, well now I am.

First I had to google Scribie to remember what it was or even if I applied.

Apparently I did.

And I don’t think that it was to long ago.

Maybe May/June.

The estimated waiting list time is 259 days.

Anywho, I am excited that even considered me for the test.

Scribie is a general transcription company that offers the following benefits:

  • Home-based job, work at your convenience
  • $10/audio hour pay rate, USD
  • Short files, 6 minutes or less
  • 2 hours TAT for each file
  • Promotion to Reviewer if performance is good
  • Monthly Bonus of $10 for every 3 hours completed
  • No obligations, no monthly commitments or withdrawal limits
  • We don’t assign; instead you pick and choose the files to work on

Work from home. Short files. No obligations. Pick my own files.

This company hits all of my wants.

Those of all of the reasons that I like transcribing for Speechink on mturk.

And then they pay a bonus for every 3 hours of audio.

So $40 for 3 hours of audio.

Not too bad for a beginning transcriptionist.

Boo! But there were no test files available.

But I set my account up to notify me when one becomes available.

There’s nothing like having another egg in your basket.

Those of you familiar with working from home know just what I am talking about!

{September 11, 2012}   Sometimes God yells NO!!!

Sometimes God whispers.

And sometimes God yells NO! in no uncertain terms.

Last week, I was seriously comtemplating becoming a full time transcriptionist in lieu of being a professional blogger.

The very next day, I awoke with an ear ache that precluded me being able to hear and type.

So, I put off doing any work until I got better.

But apparently putting it off was not good enough.

The next day my son upgraded my computer to Windows 7.

But, guess what, the audio controls were gone.

That’s right….no sound….no even with headphones….

No sound = no transcription.

Alrighty then…

There are other options….ie, using one of the kids’ laptops while they are in school.

Uh huh…

Only, I awoke with the carpal tunnel in my left hand so, yeah, no typing…

And that was when I realized that maybe God is putting his foot down on the subject.

I am meant to be a blogger.

And if I want a more steady income, then I need to actually work harder at being a professional blogger.

End of discussion.

And how do I know that I am on the right path.

Because as soon as I made the decision….

….my ear stopped aching…

…my son fixed the computer…

…and my carpal tunnel is gone…

Case closed.

So instead of doing blogging part time and becoming a full time transcriptionist, I have reversed the plan and I am back to being a full time blogger and doing transcription part time.

For one thing, I would hate to see what God would do to me next if I continue to be such a block head. Lol.
