Writing Work

Writing is my bread and butter, so of course, I have to find a way to give you options in this field. I make the majority of my earnings from private clients, but there are websites you can sign up for to make extra cash without that level of commitment. These sites are what are often called content mills. They usually don’t pay great, but I still use them for extra earnings when business is slow. I prefer BlogMutt and Textbroker just because I can easily find an assignment and make some money pretty quickly, but you might find that other platforms work better for you.

Where to Find Work at Home Jobs

Just because we have listed many many companies that often hire from home doesn’t mean they’re the only ones. It’s become a pretty common trend for companies to hire telecommuters and new ones are jumping on the bandwagon every day. Also, there are companies that only have a select number of work at home jobs available and you need to know where to look so that you don’t miss them!

Indeed – Type “remote” or “telecommute” into the keywords section.



Virtual Vocations

FlexJobs – FlexJobs specializes in home from home and flexible jobs, so this is the perfect place to keep an eye out for openings. It is a fee-based service, so it’s probably only for you if you are serious about finding your next remote position.


Craigslist – Craigslist gets a bad rap for housing a slew of scams, but there are actually legitimate jobs posted there too. As long as you know what to look for, you could find a gold mine!


The following websites are also goldmines of information and work from home job opportunities:
