Many of us have become more accustomed to homeworking over the last six months through necessity. This shift has led many of us to question the old ways of working, the nine till five, the office culture, what we wear to the office, and even where we work. It may seem that in the current financial situation it’s best to be conservative and become risk-averse, however, if you are working at home it’s the perfect opportunity to explore how you might make your own money from home. Here are five home working ideas to make money for yourself.

There are many options to make money open to a successful blogger. You can sell space on your blog, meaning any company, organization or individual can promote their product, service, or campaign. It is important to carefully vet any articles that make it onto your blog as they may not fit with your ethical stance or could harm the reputation and integrity of the site. Alternativity, good old-fashioned adverts are still a viable earner. GoogleAds allows you to display targeted ads for your readers, and you get a small credit for every click.
