There are many survey sites out there but Maximum Paid Surveys is one of the legitimate ones and Cash Crate is a free to join survey site.  You can expect to spend from ten to thirty minutes on each survey and generally earn from about one to ten dollars per survey.

2.  Make blog posts and write articles:
