Thank you.

Finding a good nanny is not only hard at time but it can be quite costly. As a mom I would rather take care of my kids than leave them with a stranger.

Honestly, no matter how good a nanny you have, your kids need to spend more time with you. Employed moms can be out of their homes for more than 10 hours daily, away from their little ones. That’s not a good arrangement.

That’s why lots of moms prefer to stay at home and take care of their own children.

But what if your really cannot take your job home? What do you do. How will you earn a living?

Million dollar questions.

Well in this era of widespread internet and technology coverage, moms can afford to stay at home and also make money.

I am going to list different ways a stay at home mom can make money online.

In no particular order…

You can create your own blog and build your own blogging business. There are so many opportunities associated with blogging. You get to put out great ideas, help people, express yourself and what’s sweet, you can make lots of money.

I’ve heard a lot of aspiring bloggers ask this question : which niche is the most profitable?!!

My answer:

Every niche is profitable

What matters is for you to go into something you have passion for. Create quality content that will rank high in search engines, tie in relevant affiliate products and boom, you make good earnings.
