    So I am curious what members may work online? I am making plans for the future and setting goals for myself, but I would like to hear from a few people who work online at the moment?


    • What do you do?
    • Are you able to make a 'living' from your job?
    • Do you have a part-time job to supplement it?
    Thanks for any information, at this point in time I am just doing research into the types of jobs I could consider or the types of jobs that may be beneficial for me.

    I am looking for jobs that give me the following.


    • Flexibility
    • Ability to work from home, either all of the time or most of the time.

    1. I work only part time online, work as translator (just because i like to read). Besides, i make some money from website too like PPc advertising and affiliate program.
    2. yes, it is enough for my living fee if i dont buy too many goods
    3. This is my part time, i run own business actually

    you can work as online freelancer but you gotta have some skill

    It depends on your skill, some freelancer are doing various type of job such as programming, web design, coding etc but some freelancer just focus on only one type of job such as translation

    What do you do?
    Blogging, selling ads and forum posting.

    Are you able to make a 'living' from your job?
    Kinda. I'm helping in paying out house bills like internet and electricity bills. I can also buy what I want. :)

    Do you have a part-time job to supplement it?
    None.

    Sigma is correct. You can be a freelancer. I started out as a paid forum poster since that's the thing I mostly do online.
    Basically, you need to first point out your interest, and move from there. For example: if you like graphics, you can offer your services as a graphic designer; or if you are fond of joining forums, you can be a paid forum poster. It's like getting paid for a thing that you love to do.

    I work online as an internet market among many other things and I do not have any other job. My online ventures pay well enough so that I don't need a job in real life.

    Like sigma said, it's not easy. But of course, hard work pays more.
    Anyways, what online work are you currently doing?
