Make Money Geocaching
I have not done geocaching before, but I have heard from others that it can be a lot of fun. Geocaching is basically a world wide treasure hunt. All over the world there are 3/4 of a million hidden boxes, each box is locatable by co-ordinates. People log on to one website to find the location of the hidden geocache then they go out and find it, mostly by using handheld GPS devices.
This opportunity, while not exactly a work at home job, sounds like a fun way to make some extra money and learn about geocaching at the same time.
A small start up company in Berkeley has developed a new GPS Device that is just for geocaching, and is more afordable for families. They want people to write articles about their geocaching adventures. And you do not need to have had prior experience-- you can use one of their "geomate.jr" gadgets, and the article could come from your experience using it while geocahing.
Each article should be between 1000 and 1500 words, written in a fun humorous style.
Salary is between $70-$100, and there is a 10 day timeline (not quite sure what that means, but thinking that is the span in which they would like you to try out the Geomate Jr. and then write your article.
Articles will be submitted to various magazine, websites, newsletter. You would receive full credit for the article. It would also be posted on the company's website.
EDIT ** April 8th** Just notified that the openings have been completely filled, and applications are no longer being accepted
