I’ve tested out quite a few good side jobs to make extra money, since starting my blog a couple of years ago.
It turns out there are a BUNCH of ways to make money on the internet, and although it might seem strange to some, making money online is an actual and quite profitable way of life for many people.
My favorite side job to make extra money is my blog! The start up cost is super low, and my monthly expenses are well under $100 (for now at least!)
Don’t get me wrong, you can spend a lot of money on your blog! There is a lot to know and a lot of great (and expensive) courses you can take to get your blog up and running fast.
Also, don’t fall for the trick that blogging is super easy! It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to finally start to see profits. If you love it though, it’s totally worth it!
As a doctor, I don’t have a ton of time to work on side jobs to make extra money. I love blogging, because I can stay up late or get up early. I don’t mind the extra work because it’s fun and exciting!
