If you’ve got time on your hands to commit to providing regular information then there are many ways to earn from providing information for other websites. Many sites are now committed to providing a directory of websites or other information and are prepared to pay you for your time. Don’t expect to get rich, but you can expect to have your internet bills paid, or receive a few cents/pence etc per review or even a share of advertising revenue. In some cases you are required to make a monthly report so don’t take on too much. Additionally, with the growth in blogging, new sites are coming online all the time so remember to check this page regularly if you are interested.
All these companies are completely free to join. You just click on the relevant banners or links and follow the instructions.

Create A Blog
The popularity of blogging has led to the growth of free hosted blog providers which offer the opportunity to share in their advertising revenue. You simply sign up from their site, and create and maintain a blog. As your content generates traffic and attracts readers you get a share of the advertising income.
Squidoo is probably my favourite blogging site. Professional templates make it very easy to get started, and various extras encourage visitors to your site. Not only do you get the chance to earn from Google advertising revenue, but you can add relevant recommendations from Amazon and eBay and earn on sales made. With 50,000 sites already, your webpage isn’t sitting out in the wilderness, hoping to be discovered. Instead, you benefit from the proximity effect – your stuff is right next to thousands of other pages about other interesting stuff, and by choosing a category for your site, you make it easy for others to find. They also make it easy to encourage interaction with your readers. You can add polls, let people add their own links and even allow people to vote on the sites and products listed.
I’ve just created my own Squidoo page (called a lens) at http://www.squidoo.com/homeworkinguk/ Take a moment or two to take a look and as a reward, if you’ve got your own website you can add it to the “member sites” area of the site and create a one way back link to your site. Once you’ve signed up as a Squidoo member please also rate the lens. The higher it rates the better the value of the back links for you.
To get your own lens, just go to http://www.squidoo.com/lensmaster/referral/homeworker – it’s completely free
Thanking you for making our Squidoo lens one of the top 100 business pages on the site (and top 1500 overall out of over 100,000). Visit this blog and add your own site details free of charge.
Writingup.com also offers you the chance to earn a regular income, simply by writing your own blog.
