Many of these jobs are not self-employment but independent contract work. The two are quite different even though you can work from home doing both. The IRS has special forms for independent contractors for tax purposes (W-9 MISC) but you needn't worry if your interest is purely for pocket money.
If you're good at writing there are some excellent sites to do some independent contracting work. Check them out below:
Interactive Media (Zerys)
You'll have to provide samples of your work before you can begin earning money. They'll assign you a star and based on your rank you'll be allowed access to the job board. The higher your rank, the better the jobs will payout. Payment is issued through PayPal the 1st and 15th of every month.
Content for clients varies and the jobs pay less than Zerys however the payout is every Friday as long as the minimum of $10 is reached. If you have less than $10 on your account balance it is rolled over into the next pay period before PayPal receives the amount and processes it.
This company will allow anyone to write. Based on the quality of your work you will be able to do high paying articles. They do pay but they don't offer much and if you're not a very fast typist this site may not be worth your time. Payments are issued through PayPal.
