Prior to working from home, I was oblivious to the fact that you could actually earn money online. To be honest, I was a bit skeptic until I landed my first work from home job, which was ChaCha. I couldn’t believe that I actually went through with the process of applying and taking tests to get that job. If anyone has ever applied to ChaCha many years ago, then you would know what I am talking about. I don't know how things are now but back then you would have to fill out an application and pass a test; I believe that there are other tasks that need to be executed as well but I am unsure what it was—it was so long ago. Subsequently, I passed the job and started right away. I didn’t have a bank account at the time so I signed with a bank that affiliated with ChaCha. How awesome is that! I received a ChaCha card in the mail and I was able to use it anywhere, if I had funds of course.

I was an independent contractor for ChaCha and that is one of the ways that you too can earn money from home. That is amongst the most popular ways of earning money. When you are an independent contractor, it means that you are not an employee with that company--you just agree to execute tasks for them. Just because you are not an employee, it does not mean that they can’t let you go. Yes, it can happen—it happened to me. ChaCha let me go after my performance weren’t up to their standards. So, be sure to follow all of the rules if you want to earn steady income as independent contractor.

Writing is another way that you can earn big bucks online. Ever since I was a child, writing has always been something that I was interested in. I remember reading a book and rewriting the words to the book. Why I chose to do that? I have no idea, writing was always a passion. Although I no longer write and utilized a laptop as a substitution but I still consider it writing. You can create a blog of any kind and write your thoughts and opinions on there or write for cents by writing articles for clients. Okay, when you write articles for clients, you can’t write whatever it is that you. You have to follow their rules and ensure that it meets their standards. To be honest, that is my least favorite. I like to write whatever I like and receive passive income for it.

Passive incomes comes from the articles that you published on sites such as Yahoo Contributor Network, Triond, Infobarrel, Bubblews, Hubpages, Squidoo, and more. Some of these companies will pay you per like, comment, and view while others may pay you based on ads. So, be sure to check with each companies on how their earning system works. With thousands of articles written, you could earn up $3,000.00 or more per month. I have heard that some freelance writers makes more but again, you have to have written THOUSANDS of published articles written in order to see that amount per month. Don't let that discourage you, with much hard work, you can do it.
