ChaCha

I have become a ChaCha guide. It's a cool new search engine that allows individuals to search on their own (like Google) or search with a human guide. A chat box allows for communication between the "infoseeker" and guide.

I had never heard of ChaCha until about a month ago. A member of my moms' group mentioned it in a forum discussion. It sounded interesting, so I signed up. You can only sign up to become a guide if you are invited by an existing guide. I do actually get paid to conduct the searches. It's fun never knowing what your next search will be. The ChaCha program "doorbell" rings whenever a search needs to be conducted. I get to work whenever I want.

I have also began using ChaCha to search when I need information. It's great to search with a guide, because they sort through the results for you. The links you are given are only the most relevant. Basically, I use it when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to read through result after result for myself.

If anyone is interested in getting paid to be a ChaCha guide, just let me know. I'll get an invite to you!
