    So here is the deal. I am currently homeless. Living in my car.

    I'm not asking for any handouts or anything. Just need some information

    My only access to a computer is the public library.

    A lot of things are blocked at the library. Including the ability to install things.

    I've gone through most of the ways to make money on this site and briefly read through each way. (im/seo/mediasales ect.)

    I'm just looking for information on what is and isn't possible. Money is currently VERY tight... but I kNow there are ways to do things without it. (blogger/wordpress)

    But my question is, is it possible to do everything I need to do, without having access to my own computer? (installing things and such)



    Also any free/non install bots/programs available out there for social media sites and blogging/website creation?
    I'm starting work next week and my wife just started at a fast food place. So currently cant buy anything but any information on freebies and how I would get around being at a public library would be helpful. Thanks.

    Plenty of online only methods available, as you stated blogger/wordpress to build sites. You could build a review site on one of these to promote a clickbank product or amazon products.

    I'm sure somebody else will be along soon with a few more ideas.

    There are a lot of ways to make money on the internet. You need to choose one method and master it.

    I suggest affiliate marketing for newbie.

    If you love blogging, you can start blogging for making money.

    I would get as many normal jobs as possible and do whatever you can to get into a cheap apartment. Save up a little bit of cash and then come back here and start your IM grind. But for now you should go with something you know is going to give you cash, even if you have to work 2-3 terrible jobs - it may suck but at least you can get a roof over your head. When you have some free time keep reading here and when you're doing okay in your life then try IM. But to do it now is risky and you can use that time to work other jobs that you know will pay out.

    You're in a library, there is someone that needs copywriting service and you can advertise yourself with flyers, nothing too intrusive. Or you can write as freelancer on oDesk, Fiverr or Freelancer.
    In my opinion write things it's the easiest way to make money (you know your language better than other things).

    iWriter and other freelance writing sites. Your english seems good enough. You can make some money there although it will take time.

    Omg that resell marketplace services idea was best idea I've heard in a long time ... Get yourself an obama phone if u dont have one. Craigslist has weekly furnished room rentals with people willing to rent a room that usually comes with free wifi and utilities . A temp job 1-2 days (pays the same day) usually pays for 1 week in furnished room if cost of living statistical data serves me right.
    Donate plasma too. Get food stamps (great 200$ a month ) .. Good luck !!!

    If you come up with a method and need hosting, get a domain name, and I will host the site for you for 6 months free ($5 a month after that, or move to your own account), if its family friendly (no pharma, gambling, porn, ect).

    If that helps.

    Are you a native English speaker? If yes, writing articles for other people would be one of the quickest ways to start making money online. It would, though, require that you can spend hours behind a computer working... is that something you can do in a public library? If yes, websites like Fiverr and iWriter will most definitely get you work.

    Imo Chris4ever (above) gave some really good advice, though. Get a temp job or two and get one of those rooms for rent, then do as many temp jobs as possible while looking for something more permanent... because while it would be possible to do IM in a public library, the most profitable projects can take months to start bringing in money and won't therefore really fit good with the situation you are in.

    Anyways, best of luck!

    Just make a blogger site and write several posts everyday. See if you can get some guest posts on other sites. Slowly build your site. Just keep working and the money will roll in.

    Thanks guys. I'm in the process of getting a job. Its kind of hard without a phone but I know if I just keep throwing applications to restaurants and such I will eventually get one. I'm the kind of guy that can get a job as long as I have an interview... So I'm hoping for an on the spot interview somewhere.

    The Obama phone/food stamp idea... hah I wish man. I live in a very terrible area. Most people here do not work or are at least on some sort of assistance. Fairly certain you need an address to get those things too. But I'm working on it. Just hit a rough patch these past 3 years... hahaha.......

    I'm not quite sure what marketplace services I could resell... unless it were to people outside of blackhatworld... I dunno I'll brainstorm some ideas.

    I really am in love with the idea of blogging. However, I have never made a blog that had more than like 15 views in a day. (pretty sure most of the views were from me, but I do remember some random person from Germany checking my blog out.) It just really discourages me when I follow peoples journeys and they have automated processes where they have like 8 blogs constantly adding people and updating content...and they making a few dollars ... lol

    I'm definitely gonna try the writing stuff. Fiverr/iwriter/freelancer.

    I dunno, we will see what happens. I really appreciate all the comments guys. Thanks for the help.

    what I do at the moment for cash is I help out tradesmen. I offer reliable labour which is hard to come by over here. Once you get used a few times and they find out you are reliable you get more work and if you have a handful of them you will get a full time income from it. Im in London and it works here. Good luck to you

    Start a Wordpress blog about your experience being homeless and occupy the homeless niche. For extra income, call yourself "The Nomadic Trooper" and give a succinct description such as "Living off the grid and overcoming the decadence of society". I would personally be interested in reading it.

    I would visit the local churches and find out what help they may be able to provide. Few people realize the outreach ministries that churches have, and I'm sure that some also have a computer you can use!

    Not your ideal job but nothing to sneeze at either if you need work but McDonalds will hire you without a phone. I know as I am involved to a certain extent with people that have no phone and a rough life history and if I send them there they almost always get a job.
