We're all trying to make ends meet, but if you have the ability to write a proper English paragraph, there are a number of websites that will pay you to do so.
Start with Associated Content
AC pays in two ways. For exclusive content they pay an upfront fee which can be anything from a buck to 15 bucks, maybe more. It's based on how well they think they can sell the ads that will land on your page.
For non-exclusive material, they pay for hits to the site but it's fractions of a penny.
How they figure your pay has to do with a complex performance payout system that I doubt anyone can explain. But if you like to write and you have time to post regular, exclusive, relevant content, then you could make some bank here.
The loading process is a bit cumbersome, you have to fill in lots of boxes with links and proof of copyright if you use a photo - I imagine it gets easier with time.
To up your chances of making some good money, follow the prompts they send for popular content, really hit the SEO in your text and read the tips from other writers. There's money here if you know how to work it.
I'll be back with another site in a bit - but feel free to add on if you know of a good one.
