Advantages: Feeling a part of a community. Brushing up writing skills. Damn good fun!
Disadvantages: Hubby feels abandoned! House a bit messier than usual!
I came across Dooyoo whilst looking online for ways to make a bit of spare cash as both my husband and I (I did work from home for his company) have recently been made redundant. I signed up on some survey sites and then gave Dooyoo a look. I read some reviews and looked around the site and thought 'I could do that' - and so it began.
I have not looked back since! I have only been doing it for about six weeks but I am completely and hopelessly addicted. My laptop is attached to me pretty much all the time (how sad), only breaking off to play with my children, do some housework or reluctantly to watch some evening telly with my hubby (keeping a surreptitious eye on things until he tells me to quit it)! I think he feels somewhat of a Dooyoo widower! He doesn't get the appeal but he knows me well enough to know that once I get into something I really get into it!
At first it was just about making a little money but gradually the talented people, some of whom I am starting to get to know a little better and the great, humorous and informative reviews have got me thinking much more than about extra pennies. Reading other people's experiences has been a real eye-opener and I have received some great advice from people which I will certainly use to help me with various issues. The discussion and health pieces in particular let you know that you are not alone. I know we are here to write for consumers in the main but being a part of Dooyoo offers its own benefits. I am taking the opportunity to brush up my writing skills (as I have always been a keen writer on and off over the years) and it feels great to use my brain again since I have been child rearing for the past seven years, and it is lovely to have a little corner of my life that is all mine all mine!
Thank you to the Dooyoo community for making me feel so welcome and for your excellent advice. I hope to stay with you guys for a good while to come and get to know more of you soon.
Thanks for reading. x
