A stay-at-home mum is a full-time job. With a 0-3-year-old child, many women ask themselves how to make money from home. In other words, they need ideas for stay at home jobs with only 3-4 hours per day and without a settled schedule. Good news is that there are plenty of ideas. The key to being a supermum lies in turning your hobbies into jobs. A little bit of creative thinking, courage, and support will grant each mum with a bucket of happiness and self-realization.

1. Blog, Vlog!

Sharing a personal experience of being a mum is useful for many young families who are only planning to have kids. This can be anything. Have you invented a perfect way to swaddle your baby in a receiving blanket or have you performed some research and discovered all the privileges of using a sling? Share it. There are a lot of desperate mums who need a bit of support. Inspirational videos or articles with bright photos are not only helpful to others but can also be profitable.

2. Do Sport

Sport is another key to happiness. It not only helps you to stay fit, healthy and beautiful, it also gives you energy, motivates your family, and, in fact, can become a source of additional income. Involving your children in everyday training is a new trend of modern healthy living. There are no limits for new exercises. Share your daily sports routine and motivate other mums to stay fit and healthy. For those who don’t like videos, there are opportunities to create a post with gifs or info-graphics.

on earning extra while being a stay-at-home mum

I guess I might have to change that into a WAHM or a work-at-home mum very soon. Not that I have found a regular 9-5 job while I stay at home to care for my little man, ’cause that really is impossible being that motherhood is a 24/7 job in itself, but, thanks to the internet + blogging, I have found a way to somehow earn while I do exactly that, stay at home.

While I strive to work on building my blogs’ links + following {+ keeping my fingers crossed that I fully monetize them very soon!}, I also write for other bloggers, on the side. These bloggers are just way over their heads with opportunities + tasks, they hardly have enough time to finish them all. We call it in blog lingo, GW or ghost writing. Although I am certain doing GW tasks won’t make me rich no matter how many articles I write for my friends, the fees I collect from doing these tasks keep my Paypal account happy + somehow allow me to buy some things for me + the little man. I have bought some books for Jared + myself + even paid my broadband + electric bills with them at one point. Another thing I love about these GW tasks is that I get to learn something new each time I get a task. A keyword can sometimes be foreign to me that I have to research about it, thus giving me another new thing or word to learn. :)

Even if these GW tasks don’t really come regularly, + there would be times that I won’t receive one for days on end, it is but still another great way for me to earn online. + I know that even if I saved everything I earned from them, it won’t be enough to send my son to College + I might just have to get a real job when the time comes, or consider trying those nurse practitioner jobs dallas  or one of those east texas medical center jobs, + wished hard that I qualified, I would love to do those GW tasks as long as one single blogger friend will entrust me to do one for her :)

spending too much time online?

online shopping, earn online, motherhood

A very lucrative day job, a thriving social life, a night life or weekend gimmicks with my best buddies ~ these are just a few of the things I gave up when I became a mum. Not that I am complaining, I am loving every minute I spend with my little kiddo. He is just absolutely adorable + I love him to bits! Nowadays, spending time online is the only semblance of social life I have left, save for occasional meet-ups with my chums, perhaps, or a few blogger events here + there. + I must admit, I am guilty as charged, I actually spend way too much time online + you bet, I just might be checking free online bingo games very soon.

I don’t think you can blame me, really. Apart from updating several blogs that takes up a bulk of my online time, I have actually found a few interesting + productive things to do that’s got me checking up on my online accounts whenever opportunity arises {read: whenever the little man is asleep or preoccupied with something}. One of which is writing articles for other bloggers {we call it GW in our blogvernacular ~ yup, I made that word up!} who simply have way too many paid tasks they hardly have enough time to finish all of them. They share it to other bloggers, like myself, who are free to write with a deadline, for a fee, of course. Although, these GW tasks do not pay as much as when I get paid tasks of my own, they are a good, steady source of income + with a dollar or two for each task, I am able to keep the Paypal account happy + myself, a happy camper!
