Work From Home

The one thing that I've been hearing more and more from mothers with young children is their desire to work from home. This is not only fueled by their love for the children but also the increasing awareness of the state of the world and it's environment. More than ever, children need their mothers to be in the home and many of us are beginning to realize how crucial that is to our children's welfare. Maids, daycare centres, grandparents and relatives will never be as influential as the care and guidance provided by a mother.
However, to be in the home, working mothers have to battle their fears whether they can adapt to the different lifestyle. Usually, the BIGGEST concern is MONEY. The ideal combination is to be at home AND still earn money.

So, the question most frequently asked is "what kind of work can I do from the home?"

I was one of many people who asked this question and was introduced to the world of internet marketing. Pretty much it's about creating websites that earn you money through clicks, affiliate programs, your own products etc....

The way I see it, there are 2 ways you can do this: The easy way and the professional way.
The easy way would be to just write any content, like personal blogging, add some money making thing-ies like adsense and a few affiliates, then wait to see if what happens. Sounds just like this blog of mine. Hahaha. Well, guess what? Yes, I earned some money... like 5 cents a click. This kind of pocket money won't even earn me a bowl of noodle.
So obviously, if you want to fill your piggy bank, it's better to do it the professional way. This is where your head will be swimming with terms like adsense, niche, keyword analysis, traffic building, list building, search engine optimization, article marketing, PLR articles, linking, RSS, etc....

There are tons of information out there on this topic and if you are a newbie like me, you might drown in the information. Plus, guru after guru will introduce tools, tools and more tools. Of course if you are just testing the waters of internet marketing, you might not be so keen on buying tools yet. But, if you really want to make money, you do have to spend some eventually.

Well, here is something I found that might interest you. It's called NO-BS Blueprint.

  1. Thank you for this information. I have just signed up to receive the ebook. I write web content for others, but I've only just decided to do something for myself. I am a real baby and everything is new. All help is appreciated.

  2. thanks for the info..I for one would really LOVE to work from home....any help would be useful!

  3. The content writer:
    Hi there. Hope the ebook was of help. It's a plus that you already have practice writing web content. Good luck and let's grow together. Me a baby too.

    Thought you were working on an online store. How's that coming along?

  4. Hi
    I like reading your blog.

    I'm a novice blogger (if you can call me that because i'm still having full-time job) and don't post very often.

    How do I start blogging to earn some money? I've submitted my blog to PPP and Smorty after reading your blog and got rejected. Reasons: not google page rank & not enough indexed pages. WHat shld I do next?
    Thanks in advance

  5. Hi JH,
    I was hoping to email you privately but can't find an email.
    Anyway, since you pointed out that you are a novice, I'm guessing that your blog is fairly new and don't have enough content. The paid 2 blog programs usually require your blog be more than 3 months old and have xx number of posts before they approve. You also need to get readers to come to your blog and exchange links. This will help your page rank. Best way is to visit other people's blogs and leave comments. For people to keep returning to your site, write interesting unique content and update frequently. Good luck.


Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
