    It's better for coders than for writers, speaking from experience. Coding is a very valuable skill (depending on language perhaps) and coding projects can pay really well. Open up a profile on a freelancing site and try it out!

    Coding can pay well as not everyone knows how to do it! Good luck.

    The number one lesson I've learned this year: you're only as good as your marketing skills. You could be an amazing coder, but if you can't promote yourself well enough, what's the point even knowing how to code?

    Be vigilant with your marketing and you can make yourself rich with any service.
