My fridge broke. The dishwasher needed a part (after leaking all over the floor…again).
Then, we sold my husband’s car to the junkyard for $100. (Leaving us with only a 7-passenger van…in an 8-person family).
As if things couldn’t get any worse…I got in the only care we have left and the “Check Engine” light came on.
(Hello, God…it’s me, Elaine. Just wondering if you could sprinkle some of that money dust over yonder…please.)
Do you ever have seasons like this?
If you are like me, you are always trying to make an extra buck to help your family out.
But sometimes you just don’t have any more stuff to sell on Craigslist, right?
Since become a blogger in 2009, I’ve known that you can make money blogging. Within the past few years, the blog world has really started expanding in this area.
Normal everyday people are able to make money blogging about things they are passionate about.
Whole foodies. Yup.
Jesus Bloggers. Yup.
The stay-at-home mom can really be the Proverbs 31 woman without even leaving her kids at the daycare!
How cool is the internet age!
But trying to start a blog, write amazing content, grow an audience and then finally make enough money to even buy a latte at Starbucks…well, honestly…it’s not as easy as you might think. In fact, it can feel a lot like being in a car that’s stuck in the mud…a lot of movement…with no traction.
But YOU CAN make money as a blogger and help your family out too!
How to Make Extra Money as a Christian Woman
Start a Shopify Store
I just recently started a Shopify store and I’m seeing 3-figure sales in my first months!
Create a Course
Online courses are still popular. Find something you know a lot about and put a course together!
Write an eBook
Aren’t ready to create a course with modules and videos yet? Write an ebook and sell it on Amazon. I make money with little effort by selling my books on Amazon.
Create a Facebook Group
If you have a specific area of expertise and time to minister, you can open up a Facebook group and helping people. You gain recognition as an authority and then can sell your products to your members.
Write Articles for Money
Focus on the Family and other online Christian magazines pay for submissions.
Need Specifics on How to Make Money or Get Organized?
Bundles, like The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, are amazing (when it’s on sale) because they give you $5000 of product (like how to set up your store or format an ebook) for WAY less than if you’d buy each item individually.
But I’m going to warn you…if you buy it…you actually have to use it.
