In the past, I have done quite a bit of research trying to find a way to make a little extra money online.
Most (and I mean MOST) of the advertisements you see about how to make money online are nothing but scams.
Just thought I would share some info in case someone doesn't know of these ways.
Ebay is good-- but in today's economy one has to be careful not to let all those listing fees for unsold items---turn into a debt. Point is -- price it to sell it the first time--- and be prepared to sell it at that price.
Craig's List-- I love Craig's List. NO Listing fees. Just be careful of the scam artists. When I list an item, I usually ask for them to leave their phone number when they reply. I started doing this because when I replied to their email---- seems like my spam folder got larger. Personally speaking, I have never had a problem using Craig's List. I've met some pretty cool people, too!
Surveys --- BE CAREFUL about surveys! There are a FEW, just a very few surveys--- that are on the up and up.
I did get lucky when I was filling out some surveys, they gave weekly prizes and I won $100 once. I was scared to cash the check, because the check came from England. I researched before I cashed the check and didn't see any complaints, so I cashed it and it was a good check. But, this particular survey no longer exists.
It is now part of Polling Point where one can earn rewards after you fill out enough surveys. This takes time and they send you a survey via email.

To get $100 --one has to earn 100,000 points and each survey lets you earn 500 pts per survey-- sometimes more.
Now, I am trying to learn more about blogging.
