Top Ways to Make Money Online



I have not earned much online so I am really no expert, but I can say that I have earned quite a decent amount with my online pursuits. By decent, I mean it is equivalent to an amount that I would usually earn for a part time work. The only difference is that my online activities are much easier to do and doesn’t require much time. Right now, my online earnings can’t rival my income from my full time job but my earnings help me save some money and make it somewhat easier for me to pay some bills. For others who also want to make money online, here are some of the online activities that will make you earn money, based from my own experience:


Start a Blog: A quality blog can really earn some bucks thru Adsense and other advertisers but it is not so easy. Blogging requires time, effort and passion so it is not recommended to start a blog just for the goal of making money. The best way is to start a blog on a topic you are passionate about- then you will surely post great content that others will be interested to read and soon you might end up earning money from it.

Buy and Sell sites. Make use of sites that offer free advertisements such as sulit.com.ph where you can set some of your old stuff (or new stuff) for sale to earn money. If you have an existing business, you can reach more customers and promote your product for free by using these sites. Of course, you have to be cautious of scammers to avoid being victimized.

Paid Surveys. There are survey sites that really pay but I think they are not so many. Plus those who pay don’t really give surveys frequently so earning money here is slow. It is usually a slow but sure process so answering these legit paid surveys is still worth it for me.

Paid to Click Sites: Earning takes so much patience but there are a lot of paid to click sites.

Paid to Post sites: There are websites like ezines, mylot, squidoo and forums that need people to post something to keep the sites or the forum alive. For those people who loves to write, earning will come easy here.

Hunger Games E-Book Review


I am so into Hunger Games nowadays and it is not because of the movie. I have just finished reading Book 1 and 2 of the Hunger Games and been spending sleepless nights finishing the Mockingjay (Book 2). I am now clearly a fan of Suzanne Collins. I love the main characters in the book, Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellarck, Haymitch and Gale. 

The book is nothing like the Twilight or the Harry Potter but since it is another trilogy and also a novel that has been turned into film, I think some people can’t help but compare them. And I can say that between the three, Hunger Games is the best. Harry Potter is very much for children while Twilight is so much for teenagers. On the contrary, Hunger Games is a book that deals with concepts that concerns everyone. It tackles poverty, politics and an oppressive government but also highlights family, friendship and love issues. One thing that I noticed about the book is that Suzanne Collins never mentioned the idea of religion. I noticed that Katniss even if she’s about to die did not utter even a single word of prayer. 

Narrated by Katniss character, the book is set in the future when a television show called Hunger Games is staged every year. In this game, the twelve districts would each have one male and one female participant aged between 12-18 years old. The participants on the Hunger Games are called tributes and for 2 weeks, the 24 participants would fight each other to death in a place called the arena. The Hunger Games is a cruel reminder to everyone of the uprising that took place years ago, a war that destroyed District 13 completely. 

For a book with a violent or should I say barbaric theme, it shows so much emotions; the love of Katniss for her sister, her special relationship with Gale, her confused feelings towards Peeta and Peeta’s undying love for Katniss. I also think the character of Katniss would be a good role model for young girls – she’s brave, smart, determined and a survivor. I have seen the movie and I think the movie actors (Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta) are perfect for the role. I quite have regrets that I did not see the movie in a cinema but on second thought, I don’t think I will appreciate it as much if I haven’t read the book first. 

I was able to have a copy of the book because my officemate gave me an e-book of the whole trilogy. To those who wants to have a copy of the Hunger Games e-book, just leave a comment and I will send it to you via email.
