(Please note, I will need you to communicate with me in English. Sorry. Weak English is fine. Your weak English will be better than my best second language- I applaud you.)
Please like at Facebook, etc... if you find it useful, maybe others will, too?

If you have a computer, a little time on your hands, and want to make a little money, I would be willing to pay for a little of your time.
I have a notebook filled with material like the top half of what is below. I want it transcribed into a spreadsheet, as you see in the bottom half. Pretty simple, really.
It is details of books I have read. There are about 30 entries per page. (I've done a second page about this, with details which may be useful to people who decide to give it a try.)
I would send you images of the pages, you would type the data into your computer, save it, email to me as a simple attachment. (No macros, in it, for instance.) It wouldn't have to be "perfect". You would send pages back one at a time. I would pay you, a page at a time, via PayPal. (If, once we "knew" one another, you were happy to do them in batches, be paid in batches, fine. But to start with, we both should protect ourselves.)
I did a page 11/20, from scratch, including all the work (e.g. emailing the result to me at the end), on an unfamiliar spreadsheet (which gave me a few hassles). A page took me 25 minutes. If I were a good typist (I'm not), and I did a batch of four pages, i.e. "got into the swing of it", I doubt it would take me anything like two hours.
This is a new venture for me. There will, I imagine, be "bugs" to work out.
If you get in touch, send a sample, I will enroll you in a special program... I'm having trouble getting this system accepted.
For your first completed page, I will pay $10. $10 for 1/2 hour's work!
And for a second page, $7
If you are accepted into the program, I will publish the "user name" of your choice on this page. When 4 people have been accepted into the program, it will be closed.
LibreOffice's spreadsheet would be my first choice. I know that if you do the work with OpenOffice's spreadsheet, that would also be fine. I suspect that Excel would be. If none of those suit you, write! We can iron the "what software" question out pretty easily, I imagine. (But unless you really, REALLY don't want to...please try installing LibreOffice, try their spreasheet, "Calc"?
To test what MIGHT be okay, when for the first time you apply for a page to type, PLEASE SEND THE FIRST FOUR LINES OF THE DATA IN THE EXAMPLE as if you were sending a page of typing you would be paid for.
Please do not use: Google docs or Dropbox. Send as attachment to email.
The good news: I don't expect "instant" results. But I would expect a page to be sent back to me within ten days of me sending it to you... it's only 40 lines, after all!
I am offering "only" US$4 per page... for work that should take you much less than an hour to do!... IF I am satisfied with your work! So... do one page. Send that back. I don't imagine that I WON'T be satisfied! I will then send you payment. ("He who pays the piper", and all that.) You are taking a chance... you might waste the time it took to type a page! Send me half a page the first few times, if you like.
Go to the root of the site this page is on- http://sheepdogguides.com. That's who you are dealing with. Use the Wayback Machine... it will show you that I've been online for more than 15 years. Do you really think someone with that reputation to protect is going to try to rip you off?? Anyway... because of how I have set this up, how could you lose more than a hour's work? (Including reading this!)
Remember... the transcription doesn't have to be perfect- not for the fee I am offering. As long as you get most of it right, that's fine.
Don't worry about anything other than what you see transcribed in the example....
The occasional dates, over at the right side of the page, don't need transcription. Some pages have notes on them. They don't need transcription.
If you are under 18, get a guardian's consent before you write to me.
If you send me an "I'll give it a try" email, with the sample ... 4 lines from the data shown above (as a test of how you plan to submit the work)... I'll send you a few pages to transcribe. Remember: You will be paid for the first one before I ask you to start the second. We'll see how it goes! If we're both happy, I have quite a bit of this stuff to be transcribed.
By all means, suggest "tweaks" to what I've proposed, if something would make you more inclined to give it a try. (If you'd do it for US$6 per page, send your name... if I get no one willing to do it at $4, I'd consider you.) I've tried to keep this simple... let me know if you can see ways to make it simpler.
Sorry... you will have to copy the email address below by hand... it makes it harder for spam list generators if I do it this way...
I hope to hear from you! Remember: Start by sending a sample showing how your transcription would be sent. It only has to be 4 lines long.
