Making money through adsense or making money through blogging for that matter, I think, is not for everybody. But there are other ways to make money online such as online freelancer jobs.
If you are looking for freelancer jobs, GetAFreeLancer.Com has a lot to offer for you such as encoding jobs, programming, graphic designing, copy writing and the likes. The good thing about is that you can do these jobs while at home as long as you have your internet connection.
I have just signed up and is not yet making money from freelancer jobs, but I know of someone who is making huge amount of money through freelancer jobs and is kind enough to share tips and tutorials. Visit Jonelo's Freelancing Tips and Tutorials - http://freelancersjournal.blogspot.com.
