1. Start a Blog
Starting a blog is a great way to make money from home. I enjoy blogging because I get to follow my passion—and help people at the same time!

How Do I Monetize My Blog?
Once you have been blogging for a few months and have built up some traffic, it's time to start monetizing! And there are plenty of ways to monetize your blog.
One of the most popular ways to monetize your blog is through display advertising.
Website income is generally measured by RPM or “Revenue Per 1,000 impressions”. An impression on a site is simply someone viewing a page once. An RPM of $50 means you earn $50 per 1,000 website views.
You can expect to earn anywhere from $5 to $50 per 1,000 views through display advertising.
The amount of income you generate through display advertising will vary from niche to niche. So it's important that you do your research before starting your blog—to ensure that you will be able to turn a profit!
There are plenty of other ways for you to monetize your blog. If you'd like to learn more visit our passive income ideas post, where I explore blogging and other passive income ideas in depth!
