Most of us have either an actual list or a mental one of our favorite movies, or even just the ones that we can’t forget like Rocky(1-3), or The Wizard of Oz. Wouldn’t it be nice to share your honest opinions about these films while also getting paid? I found a few sites that do just that. Many do require that you have some experience writting online and may also require that writers have great knowledge of the subject of their writting(s).
I enjoy finding such assignments/jobs because they allows us to work at our leisure and not really adhere to set schedules. We all value our time, so working and earning when we want to is an awesome convenience. Like most writting sites, the more recognition you receive (views, likes, comments) the more you can earn, which could also lead to them requesting you write more. If you’re one who knows certain genres of movies and are a big fan, this would be a great opportunity to get your views out there! Who knows, you could be the next, popular, movie critic!
Keep in mind that many of these assignments may just be used for extra money, and may/may not replace a current or more sustainable paid opportunity. Unless you are a seasoned writer, I would not totally depend on this for an income.
