We’ve selected some of the best to help you on your way towards realising your remote work dreams!
The work at home woman
This blog has posts and articles from numerous authors detailing how you can earn money whilst working from home. It caters specifically towards women who want to find a remote career. It’s one of the most well known blogs and was founded by Holly Reisem Hanna. Whilst being a stay-at-home mom, she felt the need to try something different from the usual 9-5. She now blogs for a living, collating articles, tips and tricks for others who would also like to work from home.
My work from home money
Joe from myworkfromhomemoney.com details a number of different side jobs and ways to make cash working from home. There are guides on blogging, freelancing, consulting, reselling and general work from home tips to help you on your way. Joe founded the website after getting tired and bored of his working life in the office. He finally managed to achieve his goal of making all his income whilst working from home in 2013, and now averages around 40 hours a week on his home run businesses.
Work from home happiness
Work from home happiness offers help, guidance and articles in areas such as career paths, side hustles, freelancing and entrepreneurship. Much like the other blogs, it was founded by someone who was finding the weekly grind tedious and tiring. Ashlee Anderson began her work from home career as a freelance writer, but struggled to make the most of the opportunity. Now with experience, she shares her journey and provides tips to jump start your work from home career. You can avoid the pitfalls and traps that many run into on their work from home journey.
This blog mainly concentrates on freelancing opportunities and jobs for those who don’t want to work in the office. Whilst it does talk a lot about the opportunities available for travel when freelancing, all posts can usually be applied to people who wish to simply work from home. There are e-books and lengthy detailed posts for the prospective freelancer, but not so much for those looking for tips on small side jobs or hustles. The blog’s author, Lizzie, felt the need to make her own luck and not be confined to a graduate job after finishing university. She founded her freelance business and moved to Spain, working from home and also travelling.
The work at home wife
Angie Nelson was sick of office politics and life, so decided to start an online business from home in 2007. After always being asked for help from others seeking to realise their work from home dream, she started her blog. There are sections for those looking to work at home full time, part time, or even just small side gigs you can do after work in your spare time. With tips on how to set up your home office and equipment, as well as remote lifestyle advice, there really is a wealth of information here for the aspiring remote worker.
