First day of turking

I spent about an hour on Mechanical Turk today. I submitted a total of 348 A9 image adjustment HITs from Tempe, AZ. I timed myself at my peak and in 16 minutes I completed 106 HITs. If every single one of those were accepted, I would earn approximately $11.93 an hour. If my 7.5% rate of rejection stayed about the same, I could earn about $11 an hour. I used to have a job at Dairy Queen where I earned $6.00 an hour. I can almost earn double with mturk.

I used two Greasemonkey scripts to speed up the process (thanks to the Mechanical Turk Monitor for the links): 

As of now it seems very possible to make a steady source of income with Mechanical Turk, and in a week or so I might be able to make my first stock purchase. Again, suggestions of online trading companies are definitely welcomed.

    Thanks for the links to my blog and the messageboard. I’ll try to link you back this afternoon. As for online trading companies I would go with Scottrade. You’ll need $500 to start the account I think. If you’re just going to buy and hold for a long time you could also go with Sharebuilder. I still use Ameritrade but you now need $2000 to start an account there I think.
