Most everyone, at one time or another, has dreamed about ditching their job (or entire career) and working for themselves. Even those who are generally satisfied with their jobs sometimes wonder, “what if I could make the same kind of income but not have to leave home to get it?”
Maybe you’ve even said to yourself, “this is it…2018 is my year. This year I’m going to explore the idea of working from home.” If so, you’ll find this guide handy.
Best Work At Home Websites Guide
We’ve researched, surfed the Web, and found our top 95 picks for the best work at home Websites of 2018. You’ll want to check out at least a few of them. Not only are they sources of excellent work from home information, you’ll find them inspiring and motivating, too.
Here they are listed below in no particular ranking order.
1) Start a Mom Blog:
Suzi Whitford studied industrial engineering in college and went on to work for several big-name companies, including Walt Disney. But when her first child was born, she knew she needed to be a stay-at-home Mom. Blogging helped her get through the early days of parenting, and she found it incredibly fulfilling, especially when she realized she could make an income at it.
Now Whitford is able to share her experience and know-how, much of it learned by trial-and-error. She has a passion for Moms who want to contribute to the household budget while being present for those all-important childhood years. Start a Mom Blog features courses, eBooks and articles aimed to help would-be blogging Moms get started and become successful.
Here’s one of Whitford’s articles that makes a great New Year’s read: https://www.startamomblog.com/how-to-start-a-mom-blog-and-make-money.
2) Twins Mommy:
During her pre-Mom years, Twins Mommy blogger Elna Cain was a teacher by profession. However, she also had a love of, and a proclivity for, writing, so she blogged on the side.
When she found out she was pregnant… with TWINS, no less, she soon realized that she had a strong desire to stay at home with her babies. However, it would mean replacing her income as a teacher with something she could do from home. Her husband was already a successful Internet entrepreneur, so with his experience and coaching, she started Twins Mommy and monetized it. It now brings in $6000 per month.
She writes about her life as a Mom of twins, but she also writes about writing. She even offers a course teaching others how to create a blog that makes money.
Here is one of our favorite Twins Mommy posts: https://twinsmommy.com/succeed-work-home-mom/
In 2012, a Mom of two found herself recently divorced and stuck in a low-paying, go-nowhere job. She lived in a financed trailer on her father’s property and worked two unfulfilling jobs to make ends meet.

She built an online business that eventually brought in enough money for her to quit her jobs. She shares her story as well as tips and advice for making money through a variety of online avenues.

Melyssa Griffin teaches bloggers and entrepreneurs how to grow an audience and a following for their endeavors. Once an ex-pat English teacher in Japan, Griffin, who felt that her job didn’t allow her to use her full scope of talents or exercise creativity, started a blog. At the time, it was simply a creative outlet, but she quickly realized she had a passion for this mode of expression. Soon her following grew and she was able to use her blog as a launching pad for her first entrepreneurial endeavor. Now she uses what she learned by accident to help others do what she did.
The Website has a fresh, young urban professional feel and is packed with free resources as well as a section of classes on topics related to blogging, making money online, entrepreneurship and more.

This blog is aimed at Moms, although much of the content applies just as easily to Dads as well as to non-parents. It’s filled with life hacks, mom hacks, recipes and parenting advice.
However, there’s also an entire section devoted to learning how to make money by blogging. There’s a free “Start a Blog” e-course, a free Facebook page e-course and a detailed How-To Guide filled with excellent pointers and tips.

Dread the thought of leaving your new baby to the care of strangers (loving though they may be) to go back to work? Or are you just tired of the daily grind and longing for a little more creativity and freedom?
Roz K. Walker had entrepreneurship in her blood. She’d already started and operated a number of her own business ventures by the time she graduated high school. However, after college, she opted for the predictability of a typical corporate America job. She had a good income, but by the time her youngest child came along, she was ready to spend more time at home.
Walker’s blog details her work at home journey and is filled with helpful articles and tips. You can also access her book, “20 Savvy Startups Moms Can Launch for $1000 or less.” It’s filled with practical advice as well as motivation and encouragement.

20) Home With the Kids:
Mom Stephanie Foster was a medical transcriptionist working out of her home and making a livable income. When she told people what she did for a living, they were always curious. They wanted to know how she got into that line of work. Some were skeptical that someone could actually earn a living from one’s desk at home. Was she sure it wasn`t a scam?
Of course she was sure, and it was that curiosity and skepticism that lead her to start Home With the Kids. She features legitimate work at home jobs and opportunities, as well as tips and encouragement for those who want to make this lifestyle successful, particularly mothers with young children. The site itself is quite minimalist, but the information is helpful, and Foster is authentic and honest in her efforts to help others do what she does, including advice on how to avoid work at home scams.
Check out this article on that very topic, great advice for detecting scams masquerading as “opportunities” or “jobs”: http://www.homewiththekids.com/blog/avoid-work-at-home-job-scams/
This faith-based site was created by Jill Hart who, thanks to her entrepreneurial Dad, learned early in life the benefits of self-employment. Coming from a Christian background, Hart incorporates her faith into her site. However, the site has broad appeal no matter what one’s faith, or even no particular faith.
CWAHM visitors can get work at home coaching or get matched up with other work at home entrepreneurs for personalized mentoring. The site also contains articles and other content related to faith and work at home issues.
The CWAHM blog contains posts written by a variety of talented authors, and not just female ones. We like this post from a CWAHM Dad: http://cwahm.com/brad-washburn/.

23) The Take Action WAHM:
Kelly Cannon de Borda is mom of two teenage boys and lives in Lima, Peru. De Borda’s goal in starting The Take Action WAHM (work at home Mom) was simple: stay home with her kids while still being able to contribute to the household finances. De Borda draws upon her years of experience doing just and offers tips and advice specifically to other Moms who want to do the same thing.
Although the site is targeted to Moms, the advice is applicable to anyone who wants to make in income through blogging. The site is filled with articles on a variety of topics, from how to install affiliate banners on a Web page to how to create catchy, relevant graphics, and more.
Here’s one of those practical articles on the topic of content marketing: http://www.thetakeactionwahm.com/6-content-marketing-tips-for-more-traffic/
24) Money Making Mommy:
Money Making Mommy Kelly Land started out like most college grads: working in her field of study at a 9 to 5 job. She enjoyed the work, but not the commute and the other expenses associated with a career. Then she had children, and THEN she lost that job.
It was a crossroad that caused her to re-examine her life and her priorities. Did she really want to find another job, put her children back in daycare, and say goodbye to them for ten to twelve hours, five days each week? She decided to try working at home instead and found satisfaction and success. She created Money Making Mommy as a resource for other Moms. The site includes sections on work at home jobs, direct sales opportunities, job leads, blogging for income and WAHM e-courses.
Here is one of Land’s articles, a practical, step-by-step guide on how to create your first blog: http://www.moneymakingmommy.com/starting-a-blog.

28) The Drifting Desk:
Like many new college grads, Lisa ????? was broke and needed money, so she took a job that had nothing to do with what she’d studied. It wasn’t even something she was passionate about; it was just a way to pay the bills.
After saving up enough money to get by for awhile, she quit her job and started doing social media and network marketing online from home. She even combined it with one of her other passions: essential oils, which she sold from her Website. The Drifting Desk aims to spark people to pursue their work-at-home dreams with tips, hints and advice on getting started.
29) What Mommy Does:
CPA turned stay-at-home Mom Lena is passionate about managing her money and helping others do the same. After leaving her career to stay at home with her children, she began blogging as both a means of creative outlet and a way to bring in an income.

We particularly like this post on “How to Know If You’ll Be a Good Blogger”: https://www.whatmommydoes.com/how-to-know-if-youll-be-a-good-blogger.
30) Blog Tyrant:
This just happens to be one of a small percentage of sites on our list that isn’t Mom-themed. Blogger Ramsay, “the Blog Tyrant,” began working from home full-time in his twenties as a blogger. He even sold one of his blogs early on for $20,000. It was this sale that fueled his excitement for teaching others how to do what he does.
Blog Tyrant offers a variety of resources, including personal advice, a free blogging report, and access to the Blog Tyrant’s e-book. Here is one of our favorite posts, Ramsay’s advice on What to Do When Your Child Wants to be a Blogger (gasp!): https://www.blogtyrant.com/what-to-do-when-your-child-says-they-want-to-be-a-blogger/
31) DIY Mogul:
More than a “how-to-freelance” site, DIY Mogul is about embracing a lifestyle. Blessed with a career that allowed blogger Jassmine to provide for her family, it didn’t leave her time to be a Girl Scout Mom or participate in school field trips with her kids.
Jassmine wanted a work-at-home job that would give her the income she needed but also the flexibility she craved. She began blogging about what she loved, which was being creative. Not only will you find lots of cool DIY tips and projects on DIY Mogul, there’s also a whole section devoted to how to start your own blog just like Jassmine did. You can also find Jassmine’s “Blogging 101” tutorial here.
We like this post by Jassmine on writing your first blog post: https://diymogul.com/how-to-successfully-write-and-post-a-blog-entry/.
32) Create and Go:
Alex and Lauren, a young couple from Texas, felt overworked and unable to spend quality time together. Both wanted to travel, but knew that they would need more money AND more time to accomplish this dream. So Lauren, a CPA, and Alex, a personal trainer, worked full time at starting blogs (on top of their regular full time jobs).
Soon they were bringing in more than $100,000 a year just from their online endeavors. They quit their jobs and now help others leave corporate America to a life with more freedom. On Create and Go, you’ll find information on how to start and launch a blog, how to get Web traffic to your blog and how to monetize it. You’ll also find a section devoted to blogging tools.
If you’re a newbie blogger, you’ll appreciate this Create and Go post: https://www.createandgo.co/what-is-a-blog.
33) Click Start Club:
Randa (The Bewitchin’ Kitchen) and Stacie (Simply Stacie) were already successful bloggers in their niches. However, they realized that, when they began adding their own high-quality photographs to their sites, traffic and engagement increased exponentially.
Now the two have teamed up and created Click Start Club, a blog that teaches others how to integrate photography effectively into their own sites. Readers can learn how to take better pictures, how to effectively edit their photography, plus get general blogging and business help. They even offer personalized consulting sessions.
Here’s a really informative article on a topic that is rarely addressed among bloggers: https://clickstartclub.com/insurance-blog/.

We like Lindstrom’s advice in this post on finding your blogging niche: https://allisonlindstrom.com/blog/find-your-blogging-niche-starting-a-blog-tip.
35) Believe in a Budget:
Blogger Kristin Larsen is passionate about budgeting as much as she is about blogging. She is able to combine both of these passions in Believe in a Budget, which teaches readers the ins and outs of blogging as well as living within a budget and saving money.
We like Believe in a Budget because it’s not just packed with great info on how to start a blog, but also advice that you won’t find on a lot of other work at home sites. This includes instruction on how to use Pinterest effectively to drive traffic and capture the attention of search engines, as well as how to start a “side hustle.”
Here’s a post by Larsen we think will be helpful if you’re looking for the right side hustle: https://www.believeinabudget.com/find-the-right-side-hustle/.
36) The Busy Budgeter:
Mom and self-proclaimed “Budget Guru” Rosemarie Groner has a passion for saving money, which is why she started The Busy Budgeter.

Want to save more money in 2018? You’ll appreciate this post by Caroline: https://www.carolinevencil.com/stop-spending-money-you-dont-have/.
38) Club Thrifty:
Married couple and parents of two, Greg and Holly Johnson are dedicated to sharing money-saving discoveries and advice for families. The site is geared toward saving money and finding bargains rather than working at home, but putting their tips to work in your own family may be as effective as getting a second income.
The Johnson’s even show you how to take an exotic family vacation on a budget. Check out this post for yourself: https://clubthrifty.com/save-money-in-bora-bora/.
39) Side Hustle & Save:
Blogger and side hustle pro Nicki Lee says “there are really only 2 routes to failure: quit … or don’t ask for help.” Lee offers readers that help in Side Hustle & Save. It’s a practical mix of money-saving and budgeting advice as well as how-to-make-money-at-home guide.
The site contains several sections, including home business ideas, work from home jobs, blogging advice and a free resource library. Plus, Lee offers her own perspective in her personal blog.

Talaat and Tai McNeely were high school sweethearts who brought two very different styles of budgeting and spending into their marriage. In time, Tai (the saver) and Talaat (the spender), learned to work together to conquer debt and work within a budget that both could live within. Now they help others, particularly couples, achieve the same kind of financial harmony.
So, while not specfically a work at home site, you’ll find tons of practical info that you can put to use at home to SAVE money, which is almost like a side hustle. Here’s a post we like about simplifying your budget: http://www.hisandhermoney.com/10-ways-to-simplify-your-budget/.
41) Wallet Hacks:
Although not specifically a “work at home” site, Wallet Hacks will help you learn to spend frugally, save money and use credit responsibly. Dad Jim Wang admits that he learned what he knows through trial-and-error, not in college or on the job. This is one of the reasons we love this site: he’s an average guy just like everyone else and very easy to relate to, as well as inspiring.
We think you’ll appreciate this post on taking the easier route to saving money: https://personalprofitability.com/budgeting-to-save-money-is-like-excercise-to-lose-weight/.

Blogger Ricky, the “Money Hero” grew up in a home with six children where money was tight. Through hard work in school and with the help of loans and credit, he managed to work his way through college. He came out with a Computer Science degree and $66K in debt, which was more than a year’s salary at his first professional job.
Ricky knew he needed to discipline himself and be a better financial steward in order to tackle that debt. He budgeted, tracked his spending religiously, and made lifestyle changes that would allow him to cut his living expenses. He did all this so he could pay off his debt. The Money Hero Blog is packed with practical advice on all kinds of personal financial topics. It also has a section devoted entirely to creating a money-making blog, as well as a “make money” section with ideas for making money on the side in your spare time.

Some of the most effective lessons are learned through failure. This is certainly true for Internet entrepreneur Kevin Charlie. He left his father’s well-established family business to work an online venture… that failed.
Kevin Charlie wanted to quit (and beg his Dad to take him back). Instead, he took what he had learned and came back bigger, better and more effective. He shares his secrets learned through failure, offering free tools (including an e-book) and resources to others with the drive to start a successful, money-making blog.
Before you post that first blog, read this Kevin Charlie post: https://www.kevcharlie.com/blog-title-ideas/.

51) Proofread Anywhere:
Caitlin Pyle was an American student studying in Germany. It was there that she began proofreading other students’ essays. It turned out that she had a knack for spotting errors. She later began doing proofreading of court transcriptions, work that kept her busy and brought in a good income.
Pyle gained a lot of experience and a unique insight into the proofreading business and decided to share that with her own blog. She offers that knowledge to others in the form of proofreading courses. Her site is also filled with resources to help people start their own websites, and words of encouragement for those who desire to work from home and be their own boss.
This post features an inspiring story of one successful WAH proofreader: https://proofreadanywhere.com/linsey-made-extra-3000-proofreading-part-time/.
52) Transcribe Anywhere:
Janet Shaughnessy had a career in administration in the insurance and medical industries. However, Shaughnessy found it necessary to work from home in the early 2000’s, so she began doing medical transcription work.
This lead her to start her own transcription services company, Zoom. As work got busier, Shaughnessy found herself spending too much of her time training her new hires one at a time. She began developing transcription courses, which are available on Transcribe Anywhere. Shaughnessy helps others learn how to transcribe and to find transcription work with TranscribeAnywhere.com
Here’s another success story post of a Mom who found work at home: https://transcribeanywhere.com/stay-at-home-mom-part-time-general-transcriptionist/.
The Work Anywhere Life is another of Caitlyn Pyle’s (https://proofreadanywhere.com) online ventures, one that she shares with her husband, Ben. Together, the couple was able to ditch the 9 to 5 life and make a six-figure income online. It has allowed them to pursue their mutual love of traveling. They even spent a year living in Ecuador.
The Work Anywhere Life is equal parts of instruction and inspiration. There are resources and courses on topics like starting an online business, how to work AND travel and more, plus personal stories from both Ben and Caitlyn.

Joseph Hogue graduated from college and got a job in his chosen field. He made a respectable salary and was on a career path that was leading to bigger things…. but he hated his job.

57) My Wife Quit Her Job:
Steve Chou and his wife were young urban professionals with so-called “good” careers. They made enough money to live a comfortable life, but they spent a lot of time commuting, and a lot of time wondering if there was more to life than the daily grind.
When Chou’s wife got pregnant with their first child, there was no way she wanted to go back to a job she hated and leave her precious baby with someone else. So the couple began researching ways to replace her income from home, and eventually started an online retail business. It was more successful than they could have dreamed. Now they use what they have learned to help others who want to enter the world of niche selling online. The site has numerous resources, plus access to Chou’s book, “Create A Niche Online Store in 5 Easy Steps.”

Not many bloggers can claim the kind of fame that Holly Reisem Hanna can. The Work at Home Woman was named one of the top websites for your career by Forbes. Hanna appreciates the nod, but fame was not was she was after: she just wanted to stay at home with her baby.

64) Smart Passive Income:
Family man Pat Flynn was working at a great company in the field of architecture, which he had studied and trained for in college. Working for himself, or from home, was not on his radar at all until the economic crash of 2008. Like many Americans, he found himself out of a job and wondering what to do.
Prior to graduating college, Flynn had started an architectural website as a way to help himself study for his final exam. Now he returned to that site and figured out how to monetize it. Smart Passive Income is Flynn’s vehicle for sharing what he learned with others so that they can pursue their own passive income ventures.
We picked this post as a fave because of Flynn’s great advice on timely use of affiliate links: https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/places-to-include-an-affiliate-link/.
65) Dumb Passive Income:
This blog may very well be the most unique one on our list. That’s because Matthew Allen was not a CEO or a 9-to-fiver caught in the daily grind. Matthew Allen was a truck driver. Neither was he looking to leave trucking for a work at home life. He still drives that truck, but now he also makes a steady income on the side. He didn’t have to give up trucking, nor any of his precious family time when he’s not on the road.
On his site you’ll find a variety of helpful information on how to get a passive income stream going for yourself. Allen covers topics like Amazon selling, affiliate programs and other money-making opportunities, plus how to do effective keyword research and how to set up a passive income website. Best of all, almost all of the tips and info on the site are free.

66) Budgets are Sexy:
Blogger J. Money looks more like a rock star than a budget guru, and it makes him very relatable. He learned how to budget when he bought his first house and was hit with the reality of life with a mortgage. He soon developed a passion for squeezing as much juice from a dollar as possible.
Budgets are Sexy contains J. Money’s insights and lessons on subjects like side hustles, the best credit cards, budgeting tools and apps, saving for retirement and more. You’ll even find free budget templates.
His post on 70 ways to make money is one of our favorites: http://www.budgetsaresexy.com/ways-to-make-money/.
67) Side Hustle Nation:
Nick Loper calls himself “Chief Side Hustler” at Side Hustle Nation. He started the site because (in his own words), “what’s riskier: starting a business, or relying on your job as your only source of income?”
Loper once worked a traditional full-time corporate job and built his online business on the side: his “side hustle.” Now his boss is himself and his full-time job is a mix of running his side hustles and coaching others who have similar dreams. Side Hustle Nation contains information on blogging, self-publishing, freelancing and more.
Here’s one of our favorite Loper posts on where to find side hustles: https://www.sidehustlenation.com/find-side-hustle-gigs/.
68) Location Rebel:
“Head Rebel” Sean thought he was living the American dream. As a financial analyst in the corporate world, he had a nice office with a spectacular view and a big enough income to live comfortably in Portland, Oregon. The problem was that he wasn’t happy or fulfilled. “It didn’t matter if I gave 110% effort or 10% effort.. the compensation and the recognition would all be the same.”
What he really wanted from life was to travel. So he quit his job, sold his possessions and moved to Thailand, and documented it all in a blog. From Thailand he did online freelance work while growing his blog into something that would make money. Location Rebel, says Sean, is a culmination of that journey. Sean continues to share his personal experiences here as well as resources (including a six-part course) for working from home (or Thailand or anywhere else in the world).
We recommend this post if working at home is your goal for 2018: https://www.locationrebel.com/how-to-build-a-niche-site/.

Sophie Lizard had worked in several fields before finding herself jobless, homeless, broke…. and pregnant. With nowhere else to turn, she began freelancing as an online writer, including as a blogger.
Lizard’s philosophy is that you don’t have to be an expert on some topic be a successful blogger. You just have to be an expert at blogging.
Today, Lizard works part-time hours and makes enough money to support her whole family. Part of how she does this is teaching others how to become expert bloggers. The training you’ll find on Be a Freelance Blogger includes topics like how to find clients and how to get started in 28 days.

This site, in our opinion, is one of the top three most interesting, dynamic and inspiring on this list, and this post of his is one of our favorites: https://chrisguillebeau.com/dont-feel-pressured-to-find-your-lifes-purpose/.
73) Tropical MBA:
Business partners Dan Andrews and Ian Shoen founded a successful ecommerce company in 2007. They sold it in 2015 to pursue something new, something that would be just as successful but would free them from the confines of a traditional office.
The Tropical MBA is their way of bringing together a like-minded community of people who want to work differently. The duo also hosts a weekly podcast and shares insights and ideas in their blog. This one on early retirement is one of our favorites: http://www.tropicalmba.com/the-cult-of-early-retirement-meets-or-strangely-doesnt-meet-the-cult-of-entrepreneurship/.

Mom Lisa Mills has been working at home since the 1990’s. She’s done all kinds of different things, from eBay selling to stock trading. Work at Home Mom Revolution is a culmination of the lessons she has learned through experience.
The site has a ton of practical information, including finding training courses for home-based careers, work at home job leads, home business ideas and tips on starting a money-making blog. We like this article of Mills’ because it explores a unique work-at-home job: https://workathomemomrevolution.com/research-opportunities/6-companies-that-hire-home-based-court-researchers/.
While this site is a little bit less personal than many of the sites on our list, it is also one of the most content-rich. Readers will find hundreds of pages of articles related to working at home, from home-based business ideas to how to make a few quick bucks on the side.
There are also sections on how to start a blog, where to find useful e-courses and work at home job leads. One of the sections that intrigued us was one on “non-phone jobs,” a subject that is rarely explored on WAH sites.
Here’s a cool post on ways to make money using Google: https://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com/make-money-online-with-google/.
Free Work at Home Guide is another site that is less personal, but contains a plethora of practical info on work at home topics. Readers can find tons of leads for WAH jobs in a variety of fields, from writing to typing to customer-service work. If it’s just a little extra cash you’re looking for and not necessarily a career shift, there is a section on that subject, too.
We like this post and recommend it for those who have always wanted to work from home but weren’t sure what to do: http://www.freeworkathomeguide.com/9-easy-work-home-jobs-require-little-zero-work-experience/.
This site grew from a personal blog to one that is now team-owned and managed and absolutely jam-packed with leads for paid work that you can do from home. That includes both side jobs (one-time only jobs for extra pocket cash) and ongoing work at home jobs.
We like this post about a side hustle that few people know even exists: https://wahadventures.com/website-tester-job-home/.
Blogger Brok is quick to admit he is “not an online guru.” Rather, he was (and still is) an average guy who wanted to find a viable way to make money from home. He soon learned that there were a lot of work from home scams, and it was sometimes difficult to tell them apart from the legitimate opportunities.
It took him a few years, but eventually he found success. He started Full Time Job from Home to help others like him sift through the scams to find authentic work from home jobs.
If you’re thinking of blogging for cash, check out this post of Brok’s: https://fulltimejobfromhome.com/how-to-start-a-profitable-wordpress-blog-for-cheap/.

Dream Home Based Work is an extremely comprehensive Website. We love this one because it delves into niches not explored by many of the other work at home/side jobs sites out there. (Did you know you can earn money just from using certain apps on your phone?) It also has a super comprehensive work at home jobs directory, beautifully organized by category.

81) Finding Work at Home Jobs:
Mom-to-be Melina wanted to be able to quit her job to be a stay-at-home Mom. However, her income was needed, and even more so now that she and her husband were adding children to their family. She knew there were a lot of scams out there, but also knew there had to be legitimate work, too. She just didn’t know how to find it.
Fast forward to 2018, and Melina now has two children and has been working from home for over a decade. Finding Work at Home is just one of her ventures, and she draws on her experience finding work at home jobs to give others the confidence she lacked when she first decided to stay at home.
We like this post by Melina on a topic that many WAH would-be’s don’t necessarily think about: https://www.findingworkathomejobs.com/prepare-to-work-from-home.html.
This site is managed by Shay of Dream Home Based Work (previously profiled). It contains much of the same information as Dream Home Based Work, but has far more content: more than 15 pages worth. We already loved Shay… now we just love her more.
Did you know that you might actually be able to make money holding babies? Check out this post by Shay: http://www.freeworkathomeguide.com/make-money-as-a-professional-cuddler/.
This site is (obviously) marketed at Moms. However, you don’t have to be a Mom, or even a female, to appreciate the content here. Alaina Forbes has five kids whom she homeschools, and she still manages to make an online income at the same time. If she can do it, anyone can!
Telecommuting Mommies has a work at home job directory, an “extra money” section, a “blogging for money” and more. Plus, there’s an excellent section on how to detect work at home scams. Check it out here: https://www.telecommutingmommies.com/scams/.

Lauren Hooker is a graphic designer, online business strategist and creative entrepreneur” who swore she would never own her own business. Yet, after getting a BFA in Visual Communication Design and then working as a professional graphic designer, she felt like something was missing.
She started freelancing on the side, and it didn’t take long for her to realize she could exercise greater creativity working for herself. Now, in addition to designing, she also offers a series of courses and online workshops, plus tons of resources for online entrepreneurs.
Here’s one of Hooker’s posts on blogging that we think is fabulous: http://www.elleandcompanydesign.com/blog/blog-post-secret-formula.
You might think an Emmy-winning Web designer would be happy with her television station career… but she wasn’t. After several years all Sarah Morgan could think about was leaving her cubicle behind for good.
She eventually stopped fantasizing about leaving corporate life and made her dream a reality. She launched her freelance web design business through her first blog and quit her job. In addition to Web design, she also writes books, courses and other resources to teach others how to become successful bloggers. And, of course, she still blogs.
Here’s one of hers that we really like. http://xosarah.com/blog/.
Blogelina has a decidedly feminine feel to it. Indeed, site owner Tanya has targeted it at “moms, females and mompreneurs.” We love that she “gets” the mind of the female blogger. Her mission is to arm women with the tools and resources they need to start and grow a successful, money-making blog.
Serious about starting a blog? Check out her four-week, online blogging class. If you can’t quite squeeze it into your schedule, there are lots of other awesome resources to be found on Blogelina, plus insightful posts on Tanya’s blog page.

Here is one of our favorite posts by Roma: http://www.kylaroma.com/self-sabotage-sales/.
94) Everyday Tia:
When Tia got pregnant with her first child, she knew that she was meant to be a stay at home Mom. Giving up her corporate career was an easy choice. Giving up the income was not really an option, though.
So she turned to blogging to replace that income. Now, two little girls later, Tia uses her blog to teach other “ladypreneurs” how to make money through blogging (although the advice works just as well for men). She also has tips for using Facebook and Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog, as well as how to get into affiliate marketing.
We like this post by Tia on how to make an affiliate sale on Pinterest: http://everydaytia.com/how-to-make-affiliate-sale-pinterest/.
