You CAN Make Money Writing

Updated on December 20, 2017

You Really Can Make Money from Home

I have been under employed since September, 2010, after the US Census Bureau closed their doors. Since then I've been searching for great opportunities to supplement my income from the computer on my dining room table.

I would like to share what I've learned so far. You certainly can earn money while working from home. It won't make you rich but you will be able to keep your head above water while trying to find a real job. Some are lucky and are able to make enough money from home to keep their water on, and their internet functioning.

Here is a review of some of the work at home sites that I've visited. The ones I am telling you about are completely free for the writer, and they pay, typically through paypal.

Text Broker: This is a great site if you know how to use commas. They have different levels of writers, from level 2, which get 75 cents for each word. The word count requirements and specific information is provided for each writing assignment. They pay twice a month through PayPal, you have to request the funds, but it is extremely easy to get paid and to make some real money if you have the time and energy to do a little research on the topics they have available.

Zemandi: You apply and then when approved, you request an article. The service will email you an article to write. If you write a lot, you will get higher-paying articles. I have experienced most articles are between 2.50 and 4.00 each, but they are easy to write and easy to submit. You are allowed to reject article writing requests, but you are limited on how many you can reject. You are paid via PayPal weekly once your 'bank' is $20.00 or more for the week.

Info Barrel: Info Barrel is a site where you have revenue sharing. They also have monthly contests that pay in Amazon gift cards, or additional revenue share on your articles. This is not a pay as you go, like the top sites, but it is a great place to write some really fun articles.

Factoidz: Another revenue sharing how-to web site, but they also pay you for when other readers vote up your articles. You choose the topic and write an article. There is a minimum of 250 words per article, but that is not difficult to do. They automatically pay you via PayPal every month. I've not done a lot of work on there, and only earned a couple dollars, but it's worth it if you know a great deal of stuff you can tell others how to do.

These web sites are 100% legitimate. I've used them all, and been paid on most of them. Zemandi and Factoids pay automatically, Text Broker pays after a request is made if you have $10.00 in your account.

Check these sites out and maybe you can make a living even without finding a corporate grind job. Besides, working at home is not terrible. Just keep your family at bay, and let them know that you are working, and to not disturb you right now.
