I have always been searching for online opportunities, even before by blogging days. I have tried paid online forums and also those pay per click marketing that many of my online buddies have been spreading buzz about. Some of them are actually true, but I learned early on that nothing was really easy. I have always believed on the saying, "If something seems to be too good to be true, most probably, it is."
But that should not be enough to discourage one from searching online opportunities. One has to be really patient though, if he wants to find them. It is not easy, like what I said, nothing is really easy. As for me, I found my "money bag" so to speak in blogging... writing that is. It does not really bring me fortunes as other bloggers make, or claim to make. It does keep afloat, though.
From time to time, I still get back on those paid forums or pay-per-click opportunities, especially during bouts with writer's block.
If you are looking for online opportunities, find out which one works best for you. There are other online affiliates marketing as well. Be sure to read the details, especially the "fine prints" and study if you can really do them. Some takes time, but if you are patient enough to learn, you can thrive on those online money-making schemes.
