Anybody Can Make a Living Online

I lost my job in the 2010 disaster of an Irish economy. I used to drive a van and was on call 24 hours a day alternate weeks. I have bills to pay and no chance at all of ever getting another job, so I decided to make my own income.

I am a teacher by training, so I count myself as educated. I can write 1000 words about anything. My general knowledge is excellent. I use these skills to write articles for websites that need them. I have my own sites where I post some articles and I post some to article directories where I earn a percentage of the ads readers see around my work.

Every day I see beggars on the streets of Cork. These people were there waving their collecting cups at me even during the boom years. I never give them a penny. I have seen them spending there day’s begging money on whiskey and beer.

In the mess that has happened to the world economy everyone needs to learn how to make extra money. There are many opportunities online to do just that and without having to get your wallet out to buy anything.

My daughter will be made redundant next month and she asked me, “How can I make extra money?” It saddens me to see her struggling, but there is nothing I can do to help her until my own position is more secure.

I have referred her to the sites that I write for, again. I referred her to these sites six months ago, but she could not be bothered. Maybe she will this time because she has her own place and rent to pay now.

I wish I could send the beggars away with a flea in their ears, telling them to go and earn a living online.
