Near the end of last year, I made the decision to leave my event sales manager career at Disney to be a stay at home mom and full time blogger/writer. As nerve-racking as that decision was it was even scarier to think of not pursuing this dream of being a full time writer and having the ability to be at home with my baby. I had dreamed of becoming a writer ever since I was a little girl, and after much deliberation and prayer, I knew this was the best time to close my Disney chapter and open the new one. To make the jump, I did a lot of research on blogging for money as well as extra side gigs that could earn me some extra money as a freelance writer. I plan on writing about my blogging journey and how I started making money on my blog soon, but in the meantime, I thought it would be a great start to share some websites where anyone can make some extra cash working from home as a stay at home mom, dad or students or pretty much anyone who has access to the internet! Below are my top 3 Best Ways To Earn Extra Money Working From Home!
#1. Surveys with Swagbucks and Survey Junkie
Surveys are a great way to earn some extra money while watching TV, waiting at the doctor’s office or really anytime when you are trying to kill some time. When I was going through school, I would do surveys (specifically SWAGBUCKS) on the side for some extra cash. Below are two awesome FREE survey sites for you to sign up with!

#2. Shopping through Ebates
I never would have imagined that I could earn money shopping. When one of my friends recommended Ebates to me, I didn’t realize that I have been losing out on basically “free money” through Ebates. I do most of my shopping online now that I have connected by shopping through Ebates, I now get money back for the stuff I buy. You seriously should sign up for this anyway because it is free and EVERYONE shops online! Click here to sign up for free!
#3. Start a Blog on WordPress
Lastly, why not look into starting a blog of your own? I started my blog through WordPress and I seriously am in love with their platform and support. If you are serious about blogging full time and making money, then I highly recommend starting a blog through WordPress. I started my blog with a premium account and then upgraded to a business account as my blog started to receive more traffic. All of their paid plans include live and email support, so they are there to help you through it all! Click here to sign up!
I hope this blog post helps you to make some extra money from home or start your blogging dreams!
