    These are such great ideas for making money with a hobby. It’s so cool to find something you enjoy doing and are passionate about and then be able to make money doing it. Everyone needs a side gig nowadays to either have some extra spending money or just to make ends meet.

    I’m not a gamer, so that one’s definitely not for me, but writing/blogging and the stock market are right up my alley. I have always enjoyed writing and being able to express my thoughts through words. I will definitely check out the site you mentioned.

    I’ve also started to develop an interest in the stock market. I’m learning as much as I can about it and what makes the best investments. Do you have any quick tips you can share about getting into the stock market easily?

      My quick tip for investing in the stock market?

      Well, see it as a long term strategy. Probably, a lifetime strategy. Why?

      It’s because, big money is required sometimes. And, you must invest in companies like you want to become an owner or part owner of that company. Investing as a business owner, rather than just betting if the company will go up in value.

    Hey Gomer! I have been trying to get into writing and blogging but I can not seem to find a good class to become a better writer. Do you make good money with blogging? Do you know if people actually read another persons personal blog or should you focus on one particular topic in your life? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the great article.

      I thought previously that perhaps there’s no one reading my blogs. But then, after conversing with some of my friends in social media that they indeed enjoyed the article I have published (my blog is linked with my social media profiles), I realized that there is indeed audience for what I am writing. And as we know it, when there’s traffic to our blogs, there’s money to be made.

    Hobbies that make money… It’s funny that I found your article today. I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately as I go deeper into Website Creation. I’ve been enjoying the entire process so much that it’s naturally made me think about making money with it.

    I still need more practice but once I improve a bit more I’ll probably start offering my services on this end. I’m sure that this is a good way of making extra money while having fun, don’t you think?

    I also love writing and blogging, by the way. 😀

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Yes, that’s a fun way to make side income from. And like you said, if you love writing and blogging, you can combine it with offering your services via your website or blog. Just do it and be consistent with it, and soon, you’ll find yourself with an audience, and of course, making more money!

    Gomer,

    With iWriter is it possible to write an article and then use it for your website as well if the topic appeals to your website’s niche? Or does the article you write become the property of iWriter?

    Since you’re an investor in the stock market, what are your thoughts on investing in cryptocurrency? It seems as though cryptocurrency is a decentralized version of the stock market and there seems to be HUGE opportunity with it since it is still really early in it’s developmental stages.

    Thanks for the money making ideas!

    All the best,

    Geno

      Thanks for asking. And here are my answers:

      Question 1 – Does the article becomes the property of iWriter? 

      Answer: Yes, property of the requester. If you are familiar with the word “ghost writer”, it can be similar to that. They hire you to write articles, they paid for it, then it becomes the property of the person paying for it.

      Question 2 – Thoughts on investing in crytocurrency

      Answer: I also invest in cryptocurrency, but I treat it differently from investing in companies’ stocks. It’s like investing in coins versus investing in a machine that produces coins. When you invest in crypto, you invest in coins. But if you invest in a business, that business makes money, and that makes it like “money making machine”.

    I can attest that it is possible to earn online through writing/blogging. Aside from Adsense, is there any other ad network for Pinoy bloggers with low traffic?

    Another way I’m considering to earn online is through forex but as I learn more, I realized that a trader should develop discipline and let go of the ego.

    By the way, is there a way to subscribe to your blog? Be back for more posts. Thanks for sharing.

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Yes, there is an alternative network that I heard. According to my blogger friends, this one makes it easier to earn money than Adsense. Have you heard of Media.net?

      • PwedePadala

        I’ve heard of media.net. My blog has to have a high traffic to qualify. I’ve tried mgid.com but the pay is way too low. I’ll try mediavine maybe next year. Need to work in increasing the traffic to my blog.

        • Gomer Magtibay

          I checked your blog and I noticed that long horizontal Adsense banner hanging right below the header. Isn’t it not making you good money?

          • Gomer Magtibay

            Yes, I noticed that. It’s one of the best places to put a Google Adsense horizontal banner, and I wish you more earnings with that.
