Time Out New York featured as a great way to make money on the side, and they couldn’t be more right.

In a recession-themed article titled Side jobs in NYC - Make Money, the infamous city travel guide magazine touted as a good source of extra cash for those hit by the credit crunch.

Although they’re bang on about it being a sweet gig, I’d like to correct their $200 quote and mention that our top writers have earned $2,000+ in a single month!


Trend Hunter (, a website used by bloggers, marketers and journalists to tap into fashion, tech, business and social spheres, employs thousands of trend-spotters to create its content. Join for free by writing a profile with info about your professional background and personal interests; then, when you come across new trends (off-the-shoulder dresses; urban farming), upload photos, videos and descriptions. The site shares ad revenue with its finders, so people who post frequently can make $200 monthly.
