Submission + - How to make some extra cash on the side?

mapzta writes: I have a job that i love. I get to spend oodles of my working hours outside, all year, which is something i treasure dearly. The problem is that my work isn't what you would call profitable. I earn a decent wage, but being in a steady, serious relationship with babies sometime in the near future is going to cost me more money than i currently earn.

I was thinking about get a second job, but i know the internet is a great place for work, but there are many rogue sites out there, phishing and credit card scams, so it is hard to know where to look.

The problem i have is that i cannot code or do artwork. I am a decent musician, and if i get a project assigned, I work hard with it in my spare time.

So, I'm asking you guys. Is there a solid, trustworthy way to earn some extra bucks on the side on the internet?

Oh, i dont know....
