In this hard economy, a lot of companies take advantage of hiring freelancers and online workers for their respective businesses.  This in turn has become an advantage to us, the house moms who want to earn a buck or two while not risking the quality of time we spend with our families.  Freelance jobs and web opportunities are no longer as scarce as before, and all you have to decide on is what kind of job you will venture on.

Here are some of the jobs and online opportunities that you can find over the internet:

  1. Tutors/Teachers – Put your motherly tutoring skills into work by applying to online tutoring jobs. From Basic Mathematics skills to Intermediate English Writing, it all depends on what you think you’re good at.

    Data Encoding/Captcha – The salary for this job isn’t much as compared to the others, but it is one of the most flexible jobs in the internet.  If you want to earn a buck or two while the kids are sleeping, consider taking this job.  There are lots of Captcha Encoding sites to choose from, search the web for the ones that are known to be certified paying Captcha Encoding sites.

  4. Article Writing
  5. Email Marketing
  6. Medical Transcriptionists – In this job, you have to transcribe reports that are recorded by physicians and other medical professionals into writing.  Take advantage of these if you have good hearing and precision to detail.  You don’t have to worry though, there are some who provide training first before they let you do the work.
  7. Order Processing
  8. Translator – Are you good in other languages like French, Spanish or Mandarin? Make a profit from your skills and get a translating job in the internet.  From voice recordings to article translation, you name it, the job is readily available on the net.
  9. Audio Transcription

10. Web Maintenance – Take advantage of this kind of work if you have a background in maintaining internet websites.  If you are that kind of mom that is knowledgeable in maintaining a website, this may become one of your most profitable sources of income.

11. Link-building

12. Tech Support – Computer savvy?  There are lots of companies that offer part time online tech support jobs that provide you with the flexibility of working 3-5 hours a day.  Some 24/7 companies even offer tech support positions at night, a perfect opportunity that you may wish to grab on too.

13. Answering Surveys

14. Call Center Representatives – there are basically three types of representatives in this field: Inbound (customer service), Outbound (sales) and Chat Support.

15. Copywriting – Some small businesses look up freelance copywriters in hopes of boosting their sales up a notch.  If you are good at making articles that promote a product, copywriting jobs are the ones for you.

16. Scriptwriting

17. PTC – Pay to click ads are easy to do: just go to a certified paying PTC site, register, and start clicking ads!  Like captcha encoding, however, this is not exactly as lucrative as the others, so if you are only looking for a couple of extra bucks every month, you may do this on the side.

18. Administrative jobs

Get hired as a voice talent!  This is included in this list because it’s a freelance job that you can do any hour of the day, so long as it’s quiet and you have got a good microphone or headset.  Once you get hired as one, you only have to record your voice and send it to your client in an MP3 format.

23.

You Tube– Fond of making videos?  Consider becoming a you tube product critic.  It’s just like making blogs, but in video form.  A lot of bloggers venture into this kind of media, due to its popular use.

24. Email Response – Businessmen are “busy men”, and a lot of them need help in their daily activities. Email Response handling is one of these.  Answer their emails, do whatever they want you to do about the rest of it and get paid by the hour.

25. Virtual Assistance

Though it is true that there are lots of web opportunities that you can take advantage of, you must never forget to be wary of the scammers that pretend to offer work as well.  Remember, if the job asks for your credit card or wants you to pay for anything, it is most likely a scamming plot.  Do some research; know which freelance job sites are legit, and good luck in your future home-based occupation!

Baby Shower Table Centerpieces

August 6, 2012 § 12 Comments

Author: kevin durant

If your close friend is in the family way, then you must be delighted and eagerly waiting for the baby to arrive. Before you cuddle and adore this bundle of joy, you must gather all your wits and ingenuity to throw the most amazing shower for the mum-to-be. Though organizing a party for friends and relatives might seem easy to you, remember this is like no other party. The baby shower party celebrates the arrival of the latest member in your friend’s family and the decor should reflect this mood. So what are the centerpiece ideas you can consider while planning such a merry party? Here’s some help for you.

Table Centerpiece Ideas for Baby Shower Party

● If the guests are seated at separate tables, then centerpieces on all the tables have to be decorated similarly. A great idea for baby shower table centerpiece would be to place a bunch of candies or cupcakes in the center of the table.

● You can also place a teddy bear or dolls right in the middle of the table. Decorate the teddy or doll with balloons or milk bottles. Furthermore, small balloons weighed down by a heavy bowl of candies also make a sweet centerpiece.

● For the buffet table, usually the baby shower cake is kept in the center. So, no other decoration is required there. Another option would be to ornament the center of the table with a single huge teddy or many plush toys stacked over each other. A castle with angels surrounding a baby doll is a really good way to decorate the table which will absolutely delight the mother and guests alike.

● A doll house or a Barbie doll theme can be set up if you are sure that baby girl is going to arrive in your friend’s house. Pink can form the base for the centerpiece. Petals of baby pink roses surrounding a baby pink-colored, baby-shaped candle placed at the center with glitter for additional effect will make a nice centerpiece for a shower party.

● Miniature cars and bikes will make a good centerpiece. Blue color represents boys and hence, a blue colored centerpiece can be made for a baby boy shower party.

Baby bottle is an inexpensive way of decorating the table. You can paint on baby bottles or make some crafts with the bottle as base. A combination of flowers with baby bottle will also work wonders.

● The gifts brought by the guests can be placed at the center arranged in an artistic manner. Otherwise, creative organization of baby care products such as baby lotion, baby powder, baby shampoo, etc. can also form a useful centerpiece.

● A baby diaper with some quote written over it or simply with the words, ‘It’s a boy!!!’ or ‘It’s a girl!!!’ will inform the guests whether a baby boy or a baby girl is expected.

● A movable toy wagon with a carrier can be used as a centerpiece with the additional motive of holding the tableware in its carriage. Cupcakes can also be placed on decorative stands of the wagon carriage for the guests.

● If the soon to-be-parents are expecting twins, then implementing the mirror image idea for centerpieces will work just fine. On the base of flower petals erect a small transparent glass piece and place two identical looking baby dolls on either sides, shown staring at each other through the glass. Or a very simple idea to represent twins is to place any two large-petaled flowers in a vase. If the twins are girls, then pink flowers. If not, then blue or lavender. Suppose it’s a boy and a girl, then one blue and one pink flower will make a decent centerpiece. Make sure to sprinkle glitter or spray water over the petals so that the centerpiece looks fresh.

Use ribbons, glitters and flowers in varying combination to make beautiful baby shower table centerpieces. Using flowers from your own garden and making a creative flower arrangement can be a unique way of adorning the table. Remember every little detail matters while throwing a baby shower for your dear ones and your thoughts along with efforts will be much appreciated by everybody.
