The day job is nearly history by now. I am relying more and more on my art business and article writing to pay everyday bills. So far, so good. Some business like to toy with their kill before they eat it, and that is what my employer seems to be doing. They are downsizing and finding fault with everyone, while making job standards harder, to weed us out and get us to quit. This way, they don't have to pay Unemployment. Well, I fight it all the way but see the writing on the wall, so I just do my artwork, promote my business and check the internet for other ways to supplement my income without having to buy anything. It's amazing how many scams are out there, but I'm savvy about it. It is hard to find good, paying sites but they are out there.
AdSense by Google is another one that gives you a few cents here and there automatically into your Paypal account every month, if anyone clicks on the Google ads you put on your webpage. Google walks you through it, and Blogger makes it easier by making it an option here. Check it out, there's ways to make more money using it, but I haven't figured it all out yet. If you take the time to know it well, let me know and explain it to me. For now, I make a few dollars a month using it.
This site will publish your articles and pay you royalties, the amount depends on how good your articles are. The more popular ones make more money, in other words. It's worth trying, and you make a little cash along the way. It's kind of fun, actually. I've had a few articles I've written pay me, so it's worth submitting. And, you can take those articles and submit them to other sites too, they don't limit usage of it, and you own the rights.
These are just a few that I've found so far, and the more good ones I encounter, the more cash that gets deposited into my account automatically without me dealing with it further. I want to create a passive income on the side, so I can focus fully on my real work, which is art (illustration).
