As the economic climate seems to worsen by the day, many people are scrambling for other alternatives to earn some extra money. There are a growing number of people who are turning to the Internet to find a solution to this problem. For years you have read reports of Internet Millionaires and have undetectedly seen the late night infomercials. But you have to ask yourself is it really that simple to make easy money online?

Well, yes and no. You see, it is easy to make a quick buck online if you know what your doing. If you come in without a clue and think your going to make a killing you will be in for a rude awakening. Those infomercials promise you the world but in most cases will leave you with and empty wallet and constant phone calls for "private coaching". We all know or should know what a scam that is.

If you are serious about making extra money online on a consistent basis then here's the easiest way you can do it. Notice I said consistent. The reason is, you can put something up on a site like eBay and make a quick buck. After awhile though you run out of old stuff around the house to sell and then what? You rummage through neighbors trash or hope to find something at a garage sale that you can turn around and make a quick buck on. That's too much work so instead do what I say below.

First you need to choose something you are passionate about or at least have a good interest in like bodybuilding. Once you have something picked out and please be sure it's something your interested in. Why? Because why would you want to spend time doing something that bores you? You probably would not do it for long right? I'll answer that one for you, no.

The second thing you want to do is go to a site called blogger.com and create an account. They have complete instructions there on what to do so do not panic and it's free. When asked to choose a blog name make sure it relates to the topic you chose. For instance, if you picked bodybuilding then your new blog name would be bodybuilding.blogspot.com. Another words, it would be whatevertopicyouchose.blogspot.com.

Once you have a blog, now you'll want to apply for a Google AdSense account. This can be done easily from your control panel at blogger.com. AdSense allows you to earn money by displaying relevant ads on your new blog. Anytime a visitor to your blog clicks on one of those ads you get paid a small fee. Pretty neat right.

Finally, to get visitors to your new blog you should write and submit articles on the subject you chose, in this case bodybuilding. Once you have the article (s) written then you just submit them to article directories. These article directories allow you to have a author bio or resource box where you can say a little about yourself and then put a link in that that will lead someone to your blog. You can find hundreds by doing a search in Google for article directories.

This may seem like a lot of work at first but once you have everything in place it's really just a matter of writing and submitting articles. It's really pretty simple. Oh, and did I forget to mention that it does not cost you a dime? That's right, it's 100% free. The only thing it takes is a little time. Think about it though, if you just lost your job you have all the time in the world right? Now is a perfect time to get started.
