You’ve likely heard the advice not to blog if you’re only in it for the money. Considering the amount of time blogging takes and the sheer effort growing your blog takes, this is good advice.
Still, if you blog because you love it, why not try to make some money while you’re blogging, right?
Eric Allyn, author of How to Build a Blog That Makes Money: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Starting and Profiting from a Blog, hopes to help you not only build a popular blog, but also make money from your blog.

Have you ever cleaned your own house? You know, like vacuuming the carpets, dusting end tables and mantels, and swiffering the hardwood floors? If so, then you are qualified to clean the houses of others.
The Rising Need for Cleaning
Have you noticed the latest trends in America today? Specifically, the percentage of women in the workforce? For the past few decades, more and more women have been hanging up their aprons and have taken their skills into the workforce. Not only that, but the average couple has inflated their lifestyle because of the additional income, which then gets them trapped into working longer and harder days to keep up with the bills.
So when is there time to clean? There really isn’t. And since the average couple now has a beefier income, they are willing to pay out some additional money to get their homes back into shape.

There are plenty of ways that you can earn a grand per month doing something that you love. Whether that be tutoring, writing, or teaching, to name a few, there are many opportunities out there.
However, what if your business isn’t growing as much as you would like? What if your goal is to earn a grand per month but you’re not still there yet?
A simple solution might be to add additional services.
Adding Services to Your Writing Business
For instance, if you’re a freelance blog writer, perhaps you could offer to create a Pinterest-friendly picture to go with your blog article for an additional fee. You’ve found an additional task that can increase your income, and your customer is saving time by letting you do the task. The customer will likely get increased traffic to his site when a Pinterest-friendly picture is used. Win-win.

Do you know anyone that got a pretty decent promotion and almost immediately increased their standard of living? They most likely went out and bought themselves a fancy new car (to fit the role of their fancy new job) and maybe even moved into a larger executive home as well. Instead of shopping at a discount grocery store, they begin to buy their food at the more upscale store down the street. Everything just seems to become bigger and better, so what do you think happens to their overall cash flow? Most of the time their cash flow (the money that they have left after the bills are paid) goes unchanged or even goes down a little! If you want to stay rich, you need to think cheaper.
Think Cheap, Yet Effective
When I was 20 years old, my goal was to increase my discretionary income to $500 a month

Are you looking for a great way to make a grand per month with a side-gig? Well I think I have the perfect solution for you: detailing cars. By this I mean, washing the outside of the car, waxing it, vacuuming the inside, and shining up the dash with a wet wipe (and perhaps even cleaning up the vents with a Q-tip).
My nephew is a few semesters into his college life and is quickly realizing how expensive it really is! His class load is constant, but his bank account is depleting. He would love to graduate from college without any debt (as I have taught him), but with a couple of $10 an hour jobs, he just doesn’t see where it is going to pay off. So I got to brainstorming – what can a 19 year old kid do that will make him some decent money and allow
