    This might be the thread you're looking for making money by selling photos online?!
    If I don't respond to your posts, it's probably because you're on my 'Ignore' list.

    I bought the Writers Bureau course on Ebay for 15, and I am enjoying reading it. I recently had an article in Full House Magazine I just supplied the details to a free lance writer and they wrote the article and I received 150. In future now I will write my own and get the full fee. http://www.starnow.co.uk/Magazines-newspapers/index.htm
    This is a good site that advertises which Magazines are looking for articles/photographs etc. It really isa good way to make some extra cash

    Personally I'd really like to see a dedicated thread on freelance writing as it's a rich market for those of us who have the urge... maybe this thread could become the nerve centre for discussion on that topic? Or maybe we could pressure Admin to give us our own thread?

    I'm always on the lookout for new markets and it would be a great thread to develop I think, also helping out new writers who have never "taken the plunge" before! I'm certainly happy to help out wherever I can (PM me if you like).

    Writing letters to The Sun is good for !!!163;10 every week or so. Just keep it succinct (30 words, no more) and keep it relevent (check the headlines that day). You can email the letter (so no cost of stationery or a stamp) and you can access the articles online (no cost of a paper which I don't want to read anyway). When I can be bothered to do it regularly I find it does pay!

    Also, the tips sections in Take a Break, That's Life etc do seem to be short of material. Well worth a go - particularly if you send a photo. I've had quite a few published. I have to say though, some of them must be made up by staff - especially the one that said "save money on spin drying by putting your freshly washed underwear in a salad spinner"... ugh!

    I love reading the tips in Real People and that, I just emailed one in, I hope they pick it I could could use the money!

    Some of the tips must be made up, some people are not that cheap, surely!

    I think persistence and determination is key. I have started writing quite a bit for websites, www.carrentals.co.uk is one of the sites I work for, and I've wrote a few little articles for www.411mania.com .

    Local newspapers are fairly easy to get into as well. I advised a friend who wanted to write a sports article and it went on the front page of the sports section!

    Without stating the obvious you should obviously keep the originals and preferably watermark or otherwise identify the ones you send in.

    Or am I just being paranoid? (Or is it just something people say about me behind my back?)

    Every week I looked at the cute baby & funny pics in Take a Break and thought what an easy way to make a 100. I had a really nice photo of my daughter (10months dressed as tigger with a tigger sitting next to her) e-mailed to them and bob's your uncle. The photo was printed in feb this year a cheque arrived a couple of weeks later.

    If only they'd print one a week!
