I am very curious and would like to know if there are people who earns a living through online earnings? Are you living on online earning? Or do you know anyone like this? It is very interesting to note that online earning community has evolved of late and the amount earned as we can witnessed through payment proofed are amazing. Just want to know if there are people doing this full time and what is the viability on this? What is the major program that made the money. Well, I am not full time, the earnings are bit and pieces from various program. The most will be from PTC and then followed by get paid to blog and write. Cheers.

Hi, I only manage to make some extra money from internet but I can't make a living by making money from internet. I only use internet as my extra income source. Making money from the internet is quite tough and require a lot of hard work. I'm trying to find a good way to make money from internet easily but it seems that there are no easy way to do it. So, I'm working as a part time to make money online.

The way I see it is on this site for example you have roughly 130,000 user's and I only ever seem to see maybe 5 or 6 people claiming to earn big money from the internet each month. So when you look at the bigger picture and think about how many million's of people use the internet around the world then there may only be a couple of hundred people from million's who earn good money from the internet each month. If there was so much money to be made from the interent then everybody would be doing it as who want's to get up at 4am every day to go do a 12 hour shift in a factory when you could earn a week's factory pay on one day on the internet. All those people who claim to be making big money on the internet I think are telling lies, then are using photoshop's to doctor the pay out's to make themselves look good and to try get people to join their program's and earn from referal's.

There are quite a few who do. It depends on your field. Some start businesses. Some are actually employed. For instance, my mother works in medical transcription. It is really wonderful what technology can allow you to do. And there are lots of real employment sites. www.genuinejobs.com is one. Associated Content is a good place for writing articles.
