You can try to bid on jobs in places like rentacoder.com, elance.com and guru.com. Frankly, I avoid all of em though. They are plagued with people who do not know the value of work. You will see jobs such as "FACE BOOK CLONE NEEDED BY FRIDAY", listed for 250 dollars...you couldn't get a qualified web developer to work for 250 dollars per HOUR let alone the entire job. The people who go there are a bit clueless...most have business plans that look like this:
1. Hire web designer
All is not lost. There are some GREAT ways you can still make money using the web to find jobs. 99Designs.com is one of my favorites. It is competitive, but you can keep entering the same design until it sells. Basically, this kind of site let's you design however you want, then sell it to someone who likes the style...rather than listen to someone tell you what they want...when they actually have no clue and will change what they want 600 times before you get the first prototype done.

A freelance writer is a writer who works on a self-employed basis. They can work for just one magazine or, more often, they write for several different publications at a time. The more diverse a writer can be, the more likely they are to be published and paid for their work.There are many different kinds of freelance writing, such as business writing, marketing writing or web writing. On the other hand, some freelancers focus solely on querying and writing for magazines, anthologies or newspapers, while still others serve non-profits through grantwriting and proposal development. Once you dive into the world of freelance writing, you'll begin to have a good grip on your strengths and weaknesses, and be able to target the jobs that best showcase your abilities.
Craigslist... also hit up marketing and publishing company websites. My company hires LOTS of freelancers just based on craigslist ads.

Freelance switch has a good job board. http://jobs.freelanceswitch.com/
Craigslist is OK, but the people willing to hire are usually cheapskates.

Yeah. You write articles geared to specific markets (magazine, newspapers, Internet sites) then you talk the editors for those places into buying your articles. Once you get someone to buy, then you start getting a name for yourself and you keep going, until you have a group of editors who come to you to write articles.
Generally speaking, they want the articles to be current, and once they come to you, they want them both fast and good.
Piece of cake. Ha! (Not my cup of tea. lol)
