As if this kind of topic hasn’t been discuss for many many time already, Times made the leap and say that they want to get some love to by writing an article about “10 ways to make money online“.
For the sake of the summary, Times categorized this into 10 areas/topics:
1. Social networking
3. Message Boards (come on, that’s such an old term! People call them Forums nowadays. Duh!)
4. Stock Photography
10. Doing Something Crazy
Well, at least I think Poker was the only one worth mentioning.
Likely the most controversial inclusion in this list, the online poker world is awash with sob stories of empty wallets and broken dreams from people of all walks of life who just didn’t know when to quit. If you feel like having a go at making some big bucks through gambling, extreme caution is urged. Quite apart from the fact that players need a fair degree of skill in the game to get anywhere, starting small is crucial – only bet what you can afford to lose with a smile. If you are skilled – and lucky – the potential rewards are vast, with some players regularly earning in excess of £1,000 per day. But, remember, the pitfalls are even greater. Texas Hold ‘Em is by far the most popular variant of the game.
After reading it, I’m not impressed at all. Like usual, this kind of article really mean nothing, or close to any value at all. If you are totally new to earning some money online, maybe that’s news. Or else, you can totally ignore it. Like always, taking action is sometimes more important than *reading* and *knowing*.
