If you enjoy writing articles and you are goid at it then maybe you can check on Contentgather. It accepts article for its article market and you can have your articles put up for sale. But if you prefer short burts then join a forum that pays for posting. One example is Forumcoin.
I don't think starting a blog will help the poster at this stage as the best thing needed is for understanding how the world of freelance writing works. Later, moving to higher grounds like having a blog can come up.
