Start a Blog.

Following posts online {like How To Start A Blog}, starting a blog is fairly simple. Even if you aren’t great with HTML, or SEO, or social media, these are all skills that can be learned.

There are several things that are important when running a profitable blog. They include SEO (this is what gets you traffic), social media (this is what builds a following), and personality (this is what keeps them around). Being honest with your readers is what will keep you afloat!

Money is earned by doing sponsored posts (brands pay you to write about them), hosting giveaways (sometimes you only receive free products… other times you get paid), and placing ads on your blog (high traffic = more money earned).

Amount earned: This number varies greatly. I know some bloggers that don’t make any money, and others that make 6 figures each year. Middle of the road would be about a thousand a month.

Babysit someone, or something.

Start a pet sitting business! Or, if you are not really into the furry creatures, try house sitting or babysitting. Get creative – try dog walking, or even dog training if you are good at that sort of thing. In home daycare can be fun – especially if you cater to a certain age group like newborns or preschoolers – but it is a lot of work. This is a great way to be home with your own children while still making money.

Check with your local laws to see if you need a license, how many children you can care for at once, etc. Scour craigslist and other online ad sites to see what other sitters are charging in your area. You want to be competitive.

Amount earned: Again, this number varies. If you watch four children in your home full-time, you could make upwards of $1000 each week if you live in a big city. Pet sitting amounts also vary, but you can easily make $10 an hour.

Ways to Make Money From Home

Get crafty.

Sell your creations on sites like Etsy.com, or set up a booth at your local Farmer’s Market or Craft Fair. Some ideas include:

— tutus and hair bows {super popular but over-saturated}
— super hero capes and “boy” items {popular and not as saturated}
— paintings
— clothing
— dolls or doll clothing
— handmade invitations, cards, etc
— wooden picture frames {for some reason these sell well at fairs}

Selling crafts is a great way to make money from home because you set your own hours, and then you only have to sell during the “season”. That just means that if you sell things that are perfect for Christmas, you will be super busy for a few months a year, and can relax most of the other months. Of course this is a double-edged sword because that means no income during those months. Selling items on Etsy can keep your income stream steady year-round.

Amount earned: Realistically, you’ll earn a few hundred bucks a month when you first start. How much you make beyond that is up to you!

Try something new.

Out of ideas? Think outside the box. Ask your friends what you would be good at! They know you best. Write a list of ideas, and narrow them down based on the income potential, the work involved, and how good you are at them! Owning a direct sales business may be an awesome option for your personality. I recently started selling Young Living Essential Oils and could not be happier.

  1. Hi Addi! I love your post! Great for all who are a stay at home mom and/or someone just wanna make some extra cash. I just started a blog so I hope in the long run it will help me make money. Still needs lots of work but I’m getting there 🙂

  2. Nice post. I think it’s worth saying that starting a blog is NOT one of those quit your job and start working from home right away kind of gigs.

    It takes a lot of hard work and several months to build up a large enough audience to make money with a blog. It can be done though and I’m glad out are encouraging people to get started.

    There are thousands of blogs on the internet, but we can always use more honest, inspiring writers to help block out the noise on the web.
