Nothing is better than making money from something you already love doing and after two years of writing for this blog, I’m starting to believe it’s possible to make money doing just about anything…

Yesterday I got an email from a reader who was wondering if there was a way her adult son could turn his love of gaming into a full-time job. I was in a good mood, so I decided to skip the judgement and got straight to the advice.

I turned to our archives & the web for some links to send her and found these 9 ‘ways to make money playing games’ so I thought I’d share them here just in case there are others looking for answers. Enjoy!

    Game testing or “play testing” is where large video game
    companies employ video game testers, who test games in development and report
    any problems or glitches they discover.Although this may sound like a perfect
    job, approach this money-making scheme with caution.
