I was contacted my an intern at an online computer training company called Crossloop who asked if I would pass along the business to other mom bloggers. It's a way to earn money from home by helping people with computer questions. I wrote up a little press release about it. Please let me know if you'd like contact info for the intern.

Are you someone who is always giving computer advice? Are you the resident techie in your family? Or are you just so frustrated from trying to make an Excel spreadsheet that you need someone to help you? There is an at-home computer-training program that has a dual purpose: helping the technologically needy and providing extra income for individuals who can help them.
Crossloop is a business that uses free sharing software so people can share their computer skills with others. Anyone who signs up with a particular skill is considered an expert and can offer paid or free services. The tutee receives help through their own computer, on their own time and in the comfort of their own home.
Dmitry Dragilev, an intern with Crossloop, uses the service with his mother or grandmother. “I live 3000 miles away, and this makes things unbelievably easy,” said Dragilev. “No more hours on the phone troubleshooting issues. I just call her, ask her to give me her access code (which changes ever few minutes), and then I just access her computer and control it remotely. She sits back and watches what I do.”
Crossloop is also a good way for stay-at-home moms and dads to earn some extra income. “Experts” who offer services can either do it for free or charge their own wage.
“If any mom has a skill in anything computer related and wants to sell this skill, she can do so on our website,” added Dragilev. “There are many tools and things people can use (for free) to market themselves.”
Crossloop was created for anyone with minimal computer skills to use, so it is incredible simple. To get started involves a few simple steps for both the trainer and tutee. At the Crossloop website, you can download the screen-sharing software for free. The person in need of help can then do a search on the website for their specific need. Whether it’s “how to make a blog” or “how to attach a document to an email,” there is help available for any size question.
