  4. Great list of websites where one can earn by writing tutorials Nirmala. Making money is an evergreen topic. And when you earn by writing tutorials, it is something really great.

    You help others by sharing your knowledge, and you really make the life of others easy – just think about who will be looking for tutorials. Those who are fed up with a software or those who badly need to know how something works need a tutorial. And by helping them out, those who writes the tutorial does a service and earns money – that’s two birds in one stone!

    Thanks for sharing this awesome list!
