Retirees and Baby Boomers Turn Internet Errors to Cash?

By: John Reed

Many retirees and baby boomers face rising costs that cut into their life's plans. So, often times many have returned to work. Unfortunately, as stated before, the job market isn't all that great right now, making job searches a much more competitive event.
Finding means to offset unavoidable rises in expenses becomes key to living comfortably.

Finding that the types of available jobs often require heavy lifting or large amounts of walking, retirees often turn to the Internet as a means of earning extra money to offset living costs.

Turning to websites like retirees are earning extra money online to pay those costs that seem to appear out of nowhere in one's golden years. Typobounty.com allows retirees to earn money by locating and reporting errors they observe on websites.

Retirees are paid over 2 dollars per valid error report. Errors such as misspelled words, incorrect punctuation, poor grammar, lack of clarity and many more types of errors are all up for grabs.
The Internet is full of errors, and with their life experiences, retirees are well suited for spotting those types of errors. Using nothing more than their observation skills and a free TypoBounty.com hunter account, retirees are able to make ends meet by using what they know.
Whether one calls it being forced into retirement, laid off, being offered a package, or just plain fired, the effects are still the same for many. The funds coming in are affected and the cost of essential items becomes more of an issue. The Internet is becoming an excellent tool for seniors to show they still can contribute in a technology hyped world. In fact they compete against others on the site.

"To have an affect on something as technological as the Internet is a wonderful thing",. says Jennifer Watson. "Retirement does not mean we are done or that we don't have anything left to contribute. It means that we have more time to contribute."

An error free internet is the goal.
