One of the first ways I started out earning money online was through writing short articles of less than 500 words for several writing sites. After a few months the earnings started to trickle in and I got to see which sites paid off the most.
The articles I wrote for Ehow (Now Demand Media) have generated me anywhere from a little over $100-$200/month. I wrote these article a few years ago and have not added any since but I still get this passive income every month.
This is one of the great benefits to working on the internet since you can generate passive income long after your work is done. I stopped writing articles when I learned how to create websites and ebooks since I would truly own the writing.
But if your new to creating income online one of the best ways to start generating passive income is through writing short articles and submitting them to writing sites. If I were just starting out I would choose Demand Studios to submit articles.
When I wrote the articles the site was named Ehow but Demand Studios has since bought them out. The new article guidelines are a little harder but in my opinion well worth the extra time needed to submit them.
If you really like to write it wouldn’t be too difficult to get your monthly earnings above $1,000. That would mean writing several 100 articles but at a couple of hundred words each that’s not as difficult as it sounds.
