Working From Home
Working from home used to be a novel idea. I remember when the “work at home” craze began. You would see ads in the back of magazines or classifieds for mailing letters or cleaning “Mohair”, etc. Today working from home is quite common. In fact, with the internet and todays technology, you can pretty much work from anywhere you want. Of course, it depends on your choice of work. A plumber cannot change a faucet from his or her computer or smart phone but, he can make a how to video and place it on a You Tube channel and monetize it! There are innumerable ways to make money at home.
It doesn’t have to be a profession per se’, you could sell items on “Ebay” that you obtained from garage sales or from cleaning out the attic or your own garage. If you love and create arts and crafts or enjoy painting, try selling your items through “Etsy” or “Deviant Art”. Amazon now has “Amazon Handmade”, much like Etsy but with a much broader audience. Trade shows like “Market Days” or “Peddler’s Show” are other ways to market your items. Or you could create your own website and sell your items there.
What exactly is blogging, or a blog (short for weblog)? Blogging is simply writing informational articles about events or subjects within a niche. Click here for a more detailed definition of “Blog”. There is also video blogging or vlogging. I’m sure that you have heard of children making serious money reviewing toys through vlogging. Click here for one such individual.
This article that you are now reading is a blog post. It was written to give you some ideas and ways to make money at home or anywhere else for that matter. There are people that have gained a following and are making incredible amounts of income doing the things they love. Some are traveling and blogging about their adventures. Others have turned their hobbies into a full time income. I know of a veterinarian that quit his vet practice because he made more money with internet marketing.
The Internet Marketplace
Because of the always improving technologies of WiFi and High Speed, the internet has grown with leaps and bounds into a shoppers’ paradise. In fact, a little earlier I went online and ordered my weekly groceries. I started writing this post then stopped to run some errands. On my way home I went to the grocer and picked up my groceries, never having to enter the store. Really amazing times we live in!
