The definition of a geek may be confused sometimes when it comes to determining if someone is a geek or a nerd, but they both kind of fit the same bill. You get nerdy of tech, so you are a tech geek, or you get nerdy over science fiction films, so you’re a film geek. Whatever the geek you are, you can use your passion for that to make some money.
Geek or not, it’s a great idea to find something you love and turn it into a way to make money. When it comes to making money online there are ways you can make a little bit here and there, and there are ways you can make a living at it. It all really depends on how much time you have to devote to working.
Get Geeked About Blogging
Blogging for money is definitely a thing, and there is more than one way to get paid for blogging. You can find a job writing for one of the many geek blogs already in existence, for one thing. In this way, you can often get a steady paycheck while writing about things that interest you, but also probably about some other things you’re less interested in.
You could start your own blog and monetize it. You can do that through pay-per-click advertising, which allows you to have ads on your page that people click and you get paid when they do. You can also make some money by writing guest posts for other bloggers (some pay for this) or you can even charge people to be able to post their own guest posts on your site (some do this and make a good deal of bank with it).
Create Geeky Goodness To Sell
Geek everywhere find ways to create things that show their love for their particular fandom, whether it’s making a Dr. Who necklace or knitting a hat that looks like Deadpool’s face. If you’ve created some of these goodies for yourself you should consider making more of them to sell online. Etsy is one great place to sell geeky handmade items.
Take some time to do a little research so that you can come up with an idea that isn’t already being made by many other people. You want a unique geek brand to win over sales.
Write Fan Fiction
If you have a creative knack when it comes to words you may want to start writing fan fiction. It will take some time to get some fans to buy your writing, but the more you do the more you’ll sell if you’re writing something that people want to read.
Even with low-priced eBooks, you can make a good deal of money. There are plenty of people out there doing just that. Just put your creativity into geeky stories full of nerdy tales and watch the money start coming in. Who needs to be a paperback writer when you have the internet?
