Your photographs can be used in school reports, business proposals, and blog posts just to name a few. Try looking at sites like iStockPhoto or Big Stock if you need suggestions for places that are buying photos.
Blogging has been around for a while and will probably be around for quite a while longer. You can either work for a blogging network or start your own blog if you want to use this option to make money.

Different business may hire you to help out with office tasks like data entry, answering emails, answering phone calls, or reviewing office records. If you work virtually, you can do this all in the comfort of your own home.
4. Sell Your Crafts Online
Sites like Etsy connect artists and crafters with customers worldwide. Not only can you sell your wares, but many artists and crafters take custom orders too from clients. The fact is that there will always be people looking to buy handmade items–if you are talented in making those types of items, you are in luck!
5. Sell T-Shirts And Trinkets Online
Sites like Café Press enable creative types to easily and inexpensively create t-shirts, mugs, and other items using logos, inspirational sayings, or pictures which can then be sold to customers for a nice profit.
6. Freelance Online
Businesses will always need freelancers to do various tasks. Some businesses may need to outsource tasks in order to free up their office workers for other projects; they may also need to outsource work in order for projects to stay on budget.
7. Sell Your Unused Items At An Online Auction
While some people may consider sites like Ebay or Craigslist to be outdated, there will probably always be a market online for people to sell and purchase items.
8. Write Reviews
Not only can you earn money by writing product reviews, but you can also earn money by reviewing software. You can also work for a company that will pay you to review websites online.
9. Commenting On Blogs
Although this doesn’t pay the best, you can certainly earn some extra pocket money this way. Some websites will actually pay people to comment on their blogs, especially if the blog is new. In addition, you might get hired to network with other bloggers in order to get others to read your employers blog and leave comments there.
Of course, there are always those who will ask you to leave comments with a backlink for pay. It is important to check to see what will be required of you when you take a commenting job. If you are being asked to spam other blogs, you might want to think twice about taking such a job.
A moderator basically welcomes new forum members and ensures that everyone on the forum abides by the rules and “plays nice” with each other. Some moderators get paid in perks–free books and products offered by the site owners. Other times, moderators get paid in cash.
The best way to find a job online is to simply get online and start looking around. Participate in forums and socialize with others that frequent the boards. You just might be surprised at the opportunities that come your way!
