Learn how to slowly but consistently make money online. There are many things you can do to make money online from blogging to article writing.

Is it really possible to make money online? The answer is that there are legitimate ways to make money online - you just have to find them. If you are willing to work hard, you can make a considerable amount of money over time. Get-rich quick schemes are just that - schemes. Making money online is similar to making money at a regular 9-5 job. You must work hard in order to get that paycheck. The following are 5 legitimate ways to make money on the internet. 

1) Blogging

Over the past decade, blogging has continued to become more and more popular. The insight into a certain niche or area of interest can be very valuable. Thus the reason for blogging. Write about your passions, hobbies, or anything you really want. The more you write about, the more visitors you will garner, and the more money you will earn via advertisements or e-commerce. Owning your own website can also fall into this category. You can start a free blog today at Blogger or WordPress.

2) Article Writing

The internet is a plethora of information, but how did the information get onto it? Through article writing. If you have a knack for writing, articles may be just for you. You can either write your own articles for you own website, or you can join an online writing service like Essay Shark. Writing may be a bit tedious at times, and is not for everyone. If you feel you are able to write for a certain niche or even on a broad range of things, then perhaps try freelance writing.

3) eBay

eBay has been around for years. There you can sell things you no longer need or even start your own mini business. Looking to have a garage sale? Consider selling things on eBay first. You would be surprised at what some people would pay for some things. You can also start an online business by selling things on eBay. If you are lucky enough to be able to buy things wholesale, you can sell them online and make a considerable chunk of age. 

4) Freelancing 

Online freelancers can do many things to make money. Aside from freelance writing, you can also find jobs for website development, editor work, translations, transcriptions, and many more. If you are looking for the best freelancing website, Upwork is the most popular. I've done a decent amount of writing and transcription services on Upwork, but I still like blogging and eBay better, which is why it's #4 on my list. 

These 4 methods of making extra cash online are indeed legitimate ways to make money. If you are willing to work hard and dedicate some time, you will come to realize that the internet can indeed be a source of income.
