[i][i]Can you help me think of ways how to make my free time productive? I have so many free time! All I do is spend it facebooking or other online stuff. So I'm thinking maybe I can use my computer earn extra income. Ah, well, decent way of earning money of course.. :D

Thank you so much in advance Angel

Online language tutorials maybe if you have good internet connection and if you think you can do it... :-)

You could replace Facebook with meeting your friends in person. You could become creative. Painting or drawing perhaps. Do you have a garden you could improve?

Ms Chrome, I don't think making leisure time productive is always associated with income. You can utilise your time in learning something new or nourishing your hobbies. Go out, make friends, socialise if this suits you. You can opt for painting, gardening, music, swimming, cycling, expedition, sports, whatever falls under your list of hobbies.

But if you are concerned about gaining some monetory benefits and that too online, you can first decide your skills and areas of interest. If you are good in writing and language, you can work as freelance editor or writer; if you are good in cooking, you can send your recipies to magazines; if you are good in computer programming, you can contact software companies for freelance development work. But you should decide what suits your temperament.

Ms. Chrome, I recommend you study literature and great books, such as "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho.

just a minor thought, switch off your computer and try doing some voluntary work. It may not pay, but I can guarantee it will be productive, new friends, new ideas, and definitely new ways to use your computer for a more definitive and educational use. At the same time, remember to have fun too, and take on encouragement from others for your free thinking.

Oh, surprised and happy to see your good advice folks. Thanks to all of you. I am actually up something where I can earn. Help my family somehow by providing my own needs. Getting into online business crossed my mind but I am afraid I can't do it right coz I don't know how to get started. I used to accept tutees before. I wish to learn more about online tutorials like what Neri Here said. I can also do simply editing or encoding and anything new. If you know some sites that would help or give me an idea wish you could share them to me too. Thank you so much in advance. :)

If you are good at editing, look up some online editing/proofreading services and see if any are offering jobs. Quite a few of them do offer employment. I don't know what your qualifications are.
Also, online translation services also offer work.
In either case, you will just have to do some searching.

My advice:
"Keep your objectives in focus, your priorities in mind, and your tasks timely..."
