SL is whatever you make of it, just like RL, some people do work, others just socialise. If you just want L$ to spend it is easier to just buy them but there arelots of means available if you do want to earn your money.

You can learn to create things and then sell them or you can work for someone else. Checkout the NCI's, you can search NCI to find them and also checkout http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld-Employment/bd-p/InworldEmployment

If you don't have much for lindens then I will mention the beta grid. More info about Aditi can be found on the second life wiki (which you are obviously now familiar with from the previous link! ;) ) and you will have money there to upload. I am not sure if you have an account on there instantly, it used to be that you had to wait for them to update teh Beta test grid. But these days I think it is different....I could be wrong though. Either way, they dish out like 5000L to upload and test things and it is not at all connected to the main grid where people buy and sell things! It is a clone of a few sims from the main grid and some others for testing. For example, there are Mesh import test grids there for the Open Beta on Collada file imports into SL. So, you will can load stuff and test it BUT it will not be on the main area where everyone is at that has all of the sims running. BUT, it saves a ton of money AND you can have fun and maybe even submit a few bug finds as you play with your creations! If you are artistic...well, you will most likely be going alright IF you can get a little bit marketing down or work with/for those who do.

 

As far as jobs to get main grid uploading money...um, you might be able to sign up to be a photographer at a studio. I saw one hiring recently, but don't remember teh name and I never applied. You photoshop the images offline and load them.

 

But maybe first few lindens might be from that cone hopping thing, a college survey (look in the employment section or wanted section here on the forums) and competitions in world. If you are creative then a speed build might work out to gain you some L's! Hone you speedy building skills and knowledge of prims capabilities and if you place even 3rd and you might win 50L. They have a topic, prim limit and some other rules...um, then you build and try to wow the judges! These are advertised in the Events tabs I think. I know Fermi sandbox used to have some (I placed 3rd way back in one of their speed builds) and 50L's is a few textures worth of upload fees and if you are frugal and savy (learn the texture offset thing and you can combine 2+ textures on one single image and then roll them on each face of your objects, for example) and you will have some lindens left for server rental. I know serverrental palces are about 5L or so for 2-3 prims, but it varies. You can even find people who help people for free, they like the traffic or are making reinds with potential customers because they sell items that are used to create finished products or to help people run stores ect. Not sure who is doing this these days though, so you might want to use the Wanted forums right here at the forums.

 

Oh, the server rental is for marketplace.secondlife.com, the least costly way to get items listed and sold. This is mostly a search place, people do browse BUT you can imagine there are so many items mostly people use search words. Um, I know there is a tonne more stuff. But this is just a few quick thoughts I am putting up here since I am bothering to mention aditi and such. You can find so much on the wiki, here at the specific forums and such! So, you are always going to be able to ask here I guess and I am sleepy lol. Plus, I am not so successful....but I mean, I make linden dollars enough to keep my biz here a live and make a small amount profit (Imean, like 1-3 USD$ a month lol...yeah, that little) uh...ok, bye and have fun!
