I just wonder sometimes as to how some people totally depend on their online work to make money. I am sure there might be works which these people are really talented to do and which sites do offer them. My only question is , is it really possible to make a living online? Even though am trying myself to make few pennies to pay off my bills sometimes it seems too tough when a site turns scam all of a sudden or there is some issue with the site. I just want to know if we can make a living online though it takes sometime initially. Please do share your views about this. thanks.

Honestly in my point of view the only TRUE real way you can honestly make a living online and get money and more money each time is if your a "Webmaster" Maintain a website with alot of traffic and easily make money off your website. Or build successful websites and then sell them for a whole lot of money. Webmasters are the true people who make their living online.

Sounds true, but then how can a website owner earn money? Do you own any website? and if so, what is the way that one can earn money by purchasing a website? thanks for the info given by you.

There are many ways to make money online. Some of the popular ways are website designing and graphic designs. Website designing is basically coding HTML or some other scripting language to create website layouts and etc. People will hire and pay decent money for this, maybe a company needs a website. Graphic designing is creating pictures or animations with but not limited to software such as photoshop. Some other ways but more challenging is coding for game servers or games and you may get paid on how good you actually are.

As with any job, if you work at it then it is possible to make money at it. I am earning money online right now and it is currently my only income. I find that the harder I work the more money that I can make. I am currently only making a part time income, but I believe that it is possible to make more money on here. My time is very limited some days and so my earnings have to be made at a more appropriate time.

"Nothing is Impossible." If you're willing to do something, then you must urge your own self to do it. Be patient and don't give up. It takes time for you reach what you want in life. I know several people already who earned a lot of money via internet. We are from same countries, and of course, someday, I also want to be one of them. For me, if you're patient in every thing that you do, then you'll succeed with it. Life is not a bed of roses, you have to go through "deep holes", and even though working online is technically easy, it's still not completely easy. You need a lot of ideas, several strategies and determination as well for you to succeed here. And later on, when you're already earning so much, you'll finally realize how much you're "worth it" for being determined.

I believe it is possible to make enough online to actually make a living online. I also believe it is like any other job. To get a return, raise , etc..You have to put the time in. It's all a matter of how much time you are devoting to your online work...and you have to believe that it is possible and that should get things rolling for you.

You can earn good money online if you are a programmer, a graphic artist, professional photographer and offer services online. You can earn money if your site is also receiving good amount of traffic or you own a domain site. But as for me, I do take my online earning as my part time job, an extra money I can keep. Today I received my payment in Paypal amounting to $70.00 and that is from my freelance writing. But I don't consider it as my bread and butter. I am a home maker so my time online is divided and I also work so I consider online work as a blessing. Maybe if I decided to venture on e-store of my own or more than that, then that's the time I can say I may keep online earning full time. But for now, it is just my part time.

Well, some people have really great ideas and that's why they are able to sell something like their own products, ideas, and even articles which are able to make money for them. If you would like to make a few pennies, you should try some article writing at either Triond or Wikinut. These two pay quite well and the latter pays in British Pounds. Have a nice day!
