There are a few things that can be considered stereotypical of writers. Many people imagine a depressed author writing mystery novels. Some people imagine a 1950′s style newspaper writer with a typewriter and a Chicago accent. Still others think of a balding man with glasses who writes prose and poetry out of his mother’s basement.While these are certainly not descriptions that would match most writers, there is one feature that does in fact pertain to the vast majority of writers: Most do not get paid enough for their work. Or, that is at least how many writers feel. Luckily,the Internet has provided several ways for writers to earn an extra buck on the side, more so than it has offered for most people.One way to earn money by writing online is by creating a blog. If you believe that many people would be interested in what youhave to say then you can blog it and earn income off of advertising on your website. Many people do this and there are even some people who are able to get by on only the money they get from the advertisements on their websites. Another option is getting a second job with an online advertising and writing company. There are several companies online that pay writers to writeadvertisements for other websites to post. These kinds of jobs do not tend to pay very much, but they offer one the ability tochoose his or her own hours and give very reasonable deadlines. Also, if you are the type of person with a lot of opinions, many websites pay people to review things online. Usually, these things are simply household objects or food. Some of these websites do not pay in cash but instead let you keep the product you tested, which is often something you would otherwise have tobuy anyways.
