It was only in 2017 that I realized you can make money from home blogging. So if you just found out too, you know you are not the only one! 🙂

To make money blogging, you need a passion to write and be able to spend at least 2 hours a day. I must say, this is my favorite way to make money online. You can start a blog investing in as little as $3.95 a month or go with free options to test and see if this is something that will suit you.

You can make money blogging through,

1. Ads that are inserted into your blog posts,

2. Affiliate links, and

3. By selling your own products. When I say commissions, it can be digital or non-digital.

Affiliate marketing is a process where you earn a percentage as a commission by promoting other people product. So say you write a review article or place a link to a text in your blog post to say for example a “hand blender” on Amazon when a reader clicks your link – goes to Amazon – buys the product – you make a commission! This is what is called affiliate marketing.



Now that you know what affiliate marketing is, you must be wondering if you can you do this without a website or a blog.

Yes, you can. But you would need to see if the program will accept you if you don’t own a website.

Here are two programs that will accept you,

How do I promote the products?

Once you sign up and get accepted, you can use your “special affiliate” links to start promoting fashion, books, electronics and anything that might suit your audience on the various social media platforms.

Here is a step by step tutorial with images that show you how you can promote these programs on Pinterest. I have made over $100 promoting a single product on Pinterest. Imagine how much more you can do with more than one!



Becoming a freelancer is the most flexible way to earn an income. A freelancer is someone who provides a service and gets paid for it.

Fiverr is a good place to start promoting your service as a beginner. With experience, you can branch out and set your own rates.

If writing is your passion and you want to become a freelance writer, this will help you GET STARTED and earn your first $1,000 as a writer without experience!

Want to follow the likes of celebrities that shot to fame instantly on YouTube. I am someone that likes to hide behind a computer and blog-ha! But if you like to put yourself out there then like blogging, you get paid to have your own YouTube channel by ads and affiliate marketing. So its very similar to how you make money with a blog, only difference is you do a video instead of type out content.

The more viewers you have to your YouTube channel the more money you make from ads, and you have higher chances of making sales with products you promote.

The more views = the more income.



Surveys are the most common ways to earn a few extra dollars with least effort. True some of them can be time-consuming, but I have shortlisted just a few of my favorites here.

Free to join, and you are not strapped into any contract, so is a great way to make a few dollars for your opinion.

If you are wondering why would someone pay you to take a survey, the answer is simple. These are companies looking for help with their research.

Some of them make you money just for signing up!



You can sell as a business or as a hobby.

If you are looking to sell online, like on eBay and make a full-time income from it, I would recommend you read this post. Husband-wife duo, Rob and Melissa made $133,000 a year flipping things they found at thrift stores and turned it into a profit. Definitely, something to look into if you want to create a full-time income.

But if you are looking to earn a few extra dollars, then there’s Bookscouter – for selling old books, Poshmark– for selling old clothes /shoes.

There you have it!

Rest assured these are genuine opportunities that have a potential to make you a full-time income depending on the amount of time you put in. For me, blogging has been the main source of income and me as a mom of two very little kids I only get to spend a couple of hours a day on my blog – yet find it to be profitable.
