As Christmas approaches and indeed at other times of the year, there are a lot of posts on sites about ideas for making money online. Here is no exception, after all, the main purpose of this blog is to help people who find themselves in the same situation as myself, older and or disabled, or with health issues that affect and limit the work they can do , but forced by finances and or welfare reforms to find a job, or ways to make an income. Obviously, by my attempts to set up a blog about this issue and make money from it, one of the ways that money can be made is by writing….
Not everyone has a best selling novel inside them , and although if you do it’s wonderful, you are not going to become rich quickly. However, you can set up a blog or website and write about anything at all that interests you, or that you know a lot about. Having got started and set up a blog or website, and started to write content on it, the next step is to monetize it with affiliate links or other forms of advertising . Again, this will not make you rich by the end of the week , but is a great plan as a new year resolution. All of these terms, affiliate etc, sound rather daunting to a beginner, and it is the need to learn as you go that means that you don’t get rich quick with a blog or website…not if it is being done properly and to maximum eventual advantage , however, a good place to start is Amazon affiliates scheme, as so much of the technical work is done for you and all you have to do is choose banners, widgets or links to display what you want to sell, copy the generated code and place the code on your site , basically that is it, and it is a very good scheme to start with.
Of course, I have already mentioned that not everyone is going to write a novel, but there are other ways to write for the web and get paid. . Writers are in demand for such areas as writing CV’s and resumes, greeting card verses, answering questions, as well as writing advertising and reviews and getting paid if you can write poetry.
