Over the last week, I have been working with oDesk, and have made over $150 just writing for quite a few hours, and have decided that I want to find a new way to make some money, preferably without doing jobs for others'. I'm not going to complain about the money, it's $150 I wouldn't have AND I acquired it in my first week of signing up. Do you think it's possible for me to make a website, maybe write 1-2 articles a day, and profit from it? I'm not talking about $1-2 a day of profit, I'd like at least $20/day for my hard work put into both creating and managing the website. Of course, I wouldn't make this my career, just a constant income for a bit of side cash. I do have an interest in web developing, but after looking through the oDesk and how cheap they pay, I don't know how a web developing business/website would last. I guess you could say I'm quite confuzed as to what direction I need to work towards, but running some sort of online business would be my ideal job.
I'm from Australia, if that helps.
