Once you open an account with them you don't need to make it any complicated , just sign for the account - it's not necessary to get a credit card with them or any other additional services. Then there are other "sisters" site for that, however, it's best to go with one that most people use and trust.

Your file can be on the e-mail system or other documents like OpenOffice or Microsoft.

reader click on their adds. In order to do that, you want to open and create a publisher account
that you can use wherever the network create that option for you. It's going to be a small amount, but be patient. Example to use is: AdSense with Google, Kontera, Amazon, Ebay and more.
Step 4Make connections online on your networks you joined; social media like Facebook, Myspace, Digg, Yahoobuz, Stumbleupon, Delicious, Flickr, Plaxo is one of my favorites . Once you have your profile listed and made a few friends, you can share your work with those networks. Write on a few site, like this you give yourself exposure to more then one audience kind and catch the attention of a different crowd. Start with Infobarrel, Triond, eHow, it's always more to be found out there.

You know you like to write, you got the idea how networks will pay you; stay organized with your
emails and files.
You know you have a crowd there waiting to read your work and rate it accordingly.
