One of my readers asked me for help finding online job opportunities. Well, I know a little bit about being self-employed as a blogger with one year of experience under my belt, so I can talk about that online opportunity – but what about other opportunities? I started looking at what my fellow frugal bloggers were writing about, and I’ll send you to them for more resources. I hope this gives you a place to start in your search for online or work at home job opportunities.
I’ve shared what I’ve learned about making money blogging in my Money 4 Mom series. First I want to tell you that very few bloggers call it their job because it’s extremely hard to monetize a blog. I really believe that bloggers should write about what they are passionate about, and if monetizing their blog fits into their topics then they should explore the possibilities. I did not create Freebies 4 Mom with the intention of making any money, but with the purpose of sharing my finds and helping others. I am lucky to call Freebies 4 Mom my job now, but the success I’ve had with it is the product of hard work and a lot of networking. Please visit BlogCoach for additional resources in how to monetize your blog.
