UPDATE: I have received word from ChoosyHomeschooler that due to outstanding response, they have received as many applicants for paid reviewers as they can handle at this time. I’ll be sure to pass the word along if they require more participants in the future! In the meantime, the review site is now in a public preview phase, and you are welcome to check it out! Use the contact feature to let them know if you have any issues or suggestions for improvement with the site so far. They are busy tweaking it to make things as useful as possible!
I just wanted to let you know that the company I work for part time is looking for homeschoolers who would like to be paid for writing reviews about how educational products worked (or didn’t work!) for their families. They are paying $10 per review for 350 words or more, until they have enough reviews to make their new site very useful to homeschoolers. They also have an opportunity for you to fill out a survey about your homeschooling preferences for $15. (They are trying to determine how to structure their website so that it is most helpful.)
The company is called ChoosyHomeschoolers, and they are getting ready to launch their new reviews website. I’ve been helping them out part time, writing and consulting, and they have been just wonderful to work with! Rich Rasmus, the owner (and former CEO of K12), has been super nice to communicate with via email and phone conversations, and Jennifer Gray, the editor, is great, too. I know it is hard to find good ways to earn a little extra spending money from home, amidst all the scams and pyramid schemes and junk out there, so I just wanted to let you all know that this is a legitimate small company. They want to employ homeschoolers for as many of their staff positions as they can, so it is even possible that a few of these reviewer positions could turn into further employment opportunities. (That’s how I got started with them.) When I found out that they were advertising for new contributors, I asked them to let me put in a good word for them, in case any of you heard about it and were wondering if it was on the up and up!

In the interests of full disclosure, I wasn’t asked to pass this information along, nor am I being paid to do it – It just seemed like a good opportunity that I wanted my readers to know about!If this article was helpful, Stumble it!
