    What do you do besides writing to make money?

    Most freelancers do a number of jobs to bring in money. Just curious what everyone else does. I do a little Ebay selling, editing, writing and Etsy.

    I also do some editing on the side, and use sites like this, squidoo, textbroker.com, and associatedcontent.com. Also chacha offers roles to be a guide, which you answer questions to make money.  Pay is not a lot, but it does pay for a few bills.  Another option that I have heard is great is online teaching.  Have not tried it, but it seems like it would be fun.

    My writing doesn't make me any money. Guess I'm not that good at this whole writing thing. I work at a plastic/chemical plant as a crane operator/boiler maker. Hard work but pays the bills.

    Mikie, nothing wrong with that. Maybe the writing will add some income one day as well and up your income some more.

    I tried the online teaching, but found that the hours they wanted me to work for about $9.00/hour was really not worth it, so I stepped down from it. There are some out there that pay a little better, I think. Just as an example, they wanted me to commit to Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday night and Sunday. That is basically my family time, so it really was not working out well. If you were single without children, it might be more doable. The work itself was pleasant.

    I don't write to make money. I just enjoy doing it for free.

    I do business transcription from projects I get in Elance.com. Already had 4 projects from this and the 5th is currently ongoing. I also do typing jobs but these have been few and far between.

    I freelance write for magazines as well as online - still writing of course wink.  I also do Tarot readings, some transcription and I design websites and graphics.
