We all need to take control of our financial future in a way that doesn't rely on your employer, the government or Lady Luck.
So I've been looking around at various ways to make money online, many of which I'll share over time on this blog.
One site that I've recently joined is Postloop. Essentially, it calls itself a "content marketplace" and it allows you to earn money by posting comments on forums and blogs. It's as simple as that. I didn't even realise this kind of industry existed. Clearly it does.
From my initial outings, it seems to be one of the more straightforward ways to make money in the online space. You write a bit, you get paid. You write a lot, you get paid more.
Yes, you've got to qualify before you can start to build up points to convert into dollars. But that's pretty easy. Once that's out of the way, I reckon it’s actually quite easy to make a few dollars here and there. As with everything, you get out what you put in.
It's not a get rich quick scheme. I don't even think it's a get rich slow scheme either. It's simply a useful supplement to other income generators you may have. And if you're going to be online anyway it seems to make sense to pop into the site.
Does it pay out? Yes. At least it has for me a few times. Make sure you have a PayPal account to take your payments.
If it intrigues you enough, take a look at Postloop - what's it about?.
