Face it, we love that green dollar; we all hate work.
So the question is how to earn that $$$ without a “normal” job. Well lucky for you, we live in a society where we can earn money by blogging, vlogging, playing games, photography… You name it. Create the fandom career you crave: These gigs are affordable to execute and will get you into the anime community even faster:
Develop your blogging skills to thrill readers: With this new niche thing called the internet being all the rage, we often find ourselves looking for something to read or gawk at. Writing is one of the most accessible forms of creativity a person can afford, even electronics these days are fairly cheap. Grab a handy phone, tablet or computer of choice and get writing. It takes some investment and the best source of inspiration is from other blogs. Feel free to check our our entire blog roll to get you inspired.
Your trusty point and shoot or DSLR could net you some cash too: Face it, we live in a day and age where everything has a camera; including your Starbucks coffee. (Okay maybe not the coffee, but the rest holds true.) So grab that camera and go to conventions, cover cosplay, get to know people. Just don’t expect instant success, it is a long road to recognition. If you want some inspiration on what Cosplayers love to do besides getting their pictures snapped, feel free to check out Phil Mizuno or 49 Shades of Grey.
Vlogging is a sure fire way to earn some extra cash: Ask any of our video content creators and you will find that they can make some money through their YouTube channels or live stream sources. Sure it takes time to get to Jaymes Hanson’s level, but you’ll get there.
