Things You Can do to Work from Home

March 29, 2017

It’s all the rage these days to be able to work from home. However, it feels like that’s impossible when you actually want to get started on an actual position. I promise it only feels that way because you simply don’t know where to look. It’s honestly quite simple to work from home. However, it’s still work and isn’t going to be like a walk in the park. Below are a few ideas for you to get started working from home!


Start a Blog

I’m sure you saw that one coming since it’s what I do but seriously, it’s a great idea! There are so many opportunities available to make money when you own a blog. Sure, it takes a bit of work to get it started but it’s worth it because you can start making money immediately on it. Don’t know how to get started creating a blog? No worried, check out these basic starting tips HERE.


There are a million and one ways to use writing in order to make money from home. You can become a virtual assistant for a blogger and help them write content for their site as a ghostwriter. Outside of that, there are countless magazines and online reading sources that are always accepting submissions, that if accepted, are paid opportunities. Need a few sites to get you started on writing for money? Here is the perfect list for you.

Do Surveys

I never had the patience for this but mainly because I can’t sit still for very long. There are multiple sites where you can sign up and select which surveys you want to fill out and simply answer questions like you would a fast food survey. It’s pretty cut and dry. It doesn’t make a large amount of money but it definitely is nice as extra income. Here is a list of survey sites to get you started.

Get Paid for Your Photos

There are multiples apps and websites these days that put your photography up for display. You would be surprised at how many people need or want photos that are stock photos. If you’ve got a smartphone and can download an app, you already have all you need to get started. Here’s a list of some sites to get you started. You can easily Google and find many more.

Play Games or Watch Videos

Yep, you heard that right. Sites like InboxDollars will pay you to test out various things such as games and videos. Of course, they may not be overly entertaining but it’s easy work! They even have a $5 sign-on bonus.

Edit Search Engine Results

Have you ever tried to Google something and you noticed some major typos or something that wasn’t supposed to, popped up? Get paid to fix these mistakes! Companies like Leapforce are looking for people like you who want to work from home making an average of $12 per hour. Of course, the main pitfall is that it’s not consistent hours.

These are only a few ways you can work from home. The list truly gets overwhelmingly long when the true number of work from home opportunities are compiled. Don’t believe me? Give it a quick Google and you’ll soon believe me.

    I remember about 10 or so years ago when my kids were still young, I searched far and wide for a work from home gig. I couldn’t find a thing except to take customer service phone calls for Office Depot. HORRIBLE people! Lol. You would get cursed out over a ream of paper. Lol These days, these opportunities are so much easier to find.

    I will pass this list off to my husband. We are thinking he is going to have to work at home due to medical issues.

    I have tried to work from home, and would absolutely love it. I haven’t been able to find a way to make enough to pay the bills though, so I had to go back to a traditional position.

    These are all great ways to earn money from the comforts of home. I took the leap from corporate slave to being my own boss and I haven’t regretted my decision at all. We have to be careful though. There are still some scrupulous individuals that entice you to dole out a certain amount of money first before you start working. That is a no-no.

    This is a great list of resources! I think the workforce in general is starting to move in the direction of remote employees–it’s way cheaper and much easier for the employee not to have to worry about a commute!
