Unfortunately, on June 27th, Rev deactivated my transcription account because my accuracy fell below their acceptable average by a tenth of a point. So, that’s no longer an option. I did enjoy Rev and I recommend it. But, it became very time consuming once I started to transcribe every week day, especially since my children were (and still are) a full-time distraction because it’s still summer break, and my husband had certain expectations (unrealistic, in my opinion) of me in regards to my “work ethic.” I struggled to remain focused with such stressful circumstances as these.
I did start an eBay account the day before I was removed from Rev. So far, eBay is less time consuming than Rev and more of the experiential fun that I enjoy.
With more time on my hands, I decided to return to YouTube a few days ago, on the 10th of July. Besides, I missed YouTube and was debating whether or not to return before Rev discharged me, anyway.
I also decided to revert WordPress back into a hobby. I love WordPress – I love writing – and I still have my account monetized (I haven’t earned a penny yet, BTW), but it’s just a less stressful mindset for me to have for now.
Keep it simple (as possible).
