Before you say I am totally full of ___ and click exit, I am here to tell you that this real money making venture will never cost you a dime, and even if you only do what I suggest for 1 month and then never go back to it again, you will still continue to receive money, month after month for as long as your work remains online.
If you only devote a small amount of time to this money making venture, you may only see a small amount of money in return, but...

SIGN UP FOR AFFILIATES PROGRAMS
There are several web sites out there that will pay you to sell their merchandise. You do not have to do a thing but post links to their information in your resources section of your articles or if you have a website you can set up an online store or links to individual items.
Again this is free to join, and you get paid per click on the sale of their merchandise, you do not have to box, ship or otherwise handle the goods you list for sale.
If you use Tweetbucks to shorten those long URL's to the affiliate merchandise you often receive more per click than you would have otherwise received by simply using Tweetbucks to shorten those long URL's.
FINALLY, LOCATE AND SIGN UP FOR AFFILIATES LINKS I have the URL for Amazon.com affiliates page in my resources section below.
Say you are writing an article about how to properly apply eye shadow. You know that Amazon.com sells various shades and types of eye shadow, so you can log onto your affiliates account, locate eye shadows and pick a couple to post onto your resources section on your articles. Now if you use tweetbucks to shorten that long URL you can then be paid anytime someone clicks on that link, then if they actually buy something while using your link you will receive a commission off of that sale. Great right? But how do you figure out what to use out of that HUGE URL that Amazon.com gives you? Well first ehow.com does not support images so click on text only, then highlight that text by moving your mouse over the text and right clicking and then click select all, then copy. This information you will post into the box on the right side of where you enter the web address. Then go back to your Amazon.com page and you will see that there will be a " followed by http:// then a long URL and another set of " this information is what you will highlight and copy to place again into your tweetbucks URL shortener web page. Now your link will pay more per click than it would have if you just put it straight into your links box.
Play with these web sites, in the beginning you will make only a little money, but with time and patience you will quickly see your earnings grow. Nothing is easy and making money takes work but it can be done. Take the initiative, condition yourself to write just 1 short article a day and watch it grow. There are lots of people here making more than $1000 a month! Now combine that with everything else I have just shown you and you do have a real chance to earn a passive income by working at home. The best thing about all this is that not only is it free, but as long as your content remains on these web sites you will continue to get paid, even if you NEVER write another article again!
These web sites are about community, half the battle to earning a residual income is becoming a member of the community, make friends, read and rate others articles, spend time in the forums and above all else.... HAVE FUN WITH IT! WARNING earning money while you are sleeping can become addicting!
