If you are really desperate for money then there is a great source for building up a small and regular income. I came across iWriter when looking for a job for my step son.
Its a great way to build up a regular income. The money may not seem like a lot at first as the rates are low but they get higher as you prove yourself there. Even if you can write basic articles and have average English skills there are plenty of articles to choose from and you can always find a topic that interests you.
Its a great way to start and will give you enough money in 1 or 2 days to be able to buy a domain and hosting and set up an autoresponder and take the next steps to building an income.
Hope this helps
