Great stuff! I really appreciate the links. Finding real online writing work that pays is tough. Ugh, I've been trying my best to become a freelance writer on my own terms. Don't want to rely on a company for handouts anymore. I think this is where America is headed.

No problem, I'm glad I could help. I hear you! More and more people are searching for ways to make money from home and completely on their own. This is certainly related to the fact that companies are increasingly less loyal to their employees. You can literally put in 20 years at a company, and then get dropped like you're yesterday's news. It's really sad, but true. People want to be able to make it on their own, and not have to deal with the daily stress of not knowing if their job will be there tomorrow.
