The Internet Is No Place For Money!

It might sound crazy but, the Internet is no place to make money. Remember, it's the "Information Superhighway," not the "Road to Riches." (Besides, money, itself, is not wealth.) Sure, there are some programs with which people can earn. Ever hear of Amazon? But, for the most part, just about every single offer of "easy money" is a sham of some sort or another - or at least doomed to failure. Ever been burned online? I have. Since then, I make my money in the real world and use the world wide web to help awaken my fellows. It's time. Relief has arrived.

Yeah, sometimes I do get worried about my online works for example what if they won't pay me? I am wasting my time everyday to get some penny from the internet yet it is so insufficient. I can't do offline jobs I have schizophrenia and depression gets me interrupt when working so internet is the only place I go to make some penny. I hope one day more legit sites will pop up and stay for long time. Meanwhile I only depends on my father who gives pocket money everyday.

There is no easy way to make big money through internet, unless you are working on some big freelancing project. But surely it is not an alternative still to regular jobs. Internet can provide you some additional income.

It's not everyone who makes it online. Nature had no intention of everyone surviving, either.

My mom always said if it sounds too good to be true, it is! She was right. I have seen so many money making schemes on the internet but if one just stops to think about it one would know it's too good to be true. There is a commercial on local radio here urging people to go to a website and sign up for a "webinar" on flipping houses. This person will share their secret for just a few dollars and make you as much money as you want in only a couple hours a week. Wow!! Well if it's such a good system, why don't they work it themselves and get rich? Why share it? It makes no sense when you think about it except that the person offering the great deal is going to get a couple hundred dollars from you and give you nothing. I do make money on the net but it's for writing and it's hard mental work. You are right, the only place to make a steady income and enough to live on is in the real world!

Some authors have made it big thanks to the web but, again, most just don't.

@Iquestionitall Well, I certainly don't! I make a couple hundred in a good month, not enough to support me but it makes a nice addition to my savings. My budget is so tight it screams so the writing is the only way I can put money in my savings for emergencies. It will keep me from completely sinking if something should happen.

very true - only Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg make money from the WWW

And those two ultimately block any non-relatives.

I think the internet can be a place for money. Though I'm not making a full-time income online, I still believe I can. I believe the responsibility to make it happen is completely down to me and that I'm the one who's been standing in my way.
