Here are a few easy ways to make some extra money thanks to some MSN readers.
OK, OK, you're right... very few people make any serious money from blogging, but it is possible. You might just make pocket money to start with but big money is possible!
The first thing to know about making money from a blog is that IT'S NOT EASY! There are literally millions of blogs on the internet and the majority don’t make a penny for their creators. However, that could be simply because they're not trying.

Would you like to be paid to sit down? Well, to sit down and wander around a room occasionally? That's pretty much the deal for invigilating exams - you could get paid and catch up on a bit of thinking time while you're at it.
Hosting foreign students means you make money from your spare room without the long-term commitments

Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? You might have found it flattering or perhaps offensive, but have you ever thought you could make money out of it? Sure you can! Become a lookalike.
If it's very obvious who you look like, then you have it easier, otherwise you will have to think hard, work at it and, probably, buy some props and costumes.
Gold is up in price and will keep going up while the global economy falters. How can you cash in?

Long, lustrous locks can make you some cash on the side if you ever want to cut them.
