Being older and on a fixed income is no fun. These are difficult economic times for everyone, but it is possible for industrious people to make money right from their own homes through the Internet. 

A computer and a connection are the only required tools to get started, and you may even be able to manage without those if you can start small at a local library or a friend's house. All you need to do is think about the opportunities available to you online and decide which is best for you.

1. Writing - One of the most common ways to make money online is to write for a site that offers compensation for its writers. Some pay per articles, while others pay a share of advertising revenue. If you can find several sites that pay, you will have a place to write for even if one of them goes dry.

2. Editing - With all the writing online, many sites are in need of good editors. If you have a strong grasp of grammar, your services could be valuable and compensated as such.

3. Selling - If you have old items lying around the house collecting dust, you could make money off them by selling them at an online auction site or used goods store. Moreover, if you have artistic talent, you can make crafts and artwork and sell them online.

4. Services - If you have a special skill that you can offer, why not advertise it online and see if people might have a need for it? You can restrict yourself to local parties if you are doing something like yard work; if it's something that can be done from a distance, you have countless potential clients to choose from.

5. Blog - You don't have to be a writer to blog. You can show off photography, artwork or music, whatever it is that you enjoy. Once you put ads alongside your entries, you will be able to earn money on every one of them if enough people click through.

As you can see, the Internet is full of ways to earn some extra cash. While making a boatload of money online is difficult, you can always get a little extra in to supplement your income. With enough hard work and some time invested wisely, anyone can make a significant amount of money online.
