I have requested those who would join my blog's 4th Year Blogging Giveaway (I hope you join if you haven't) to write a post about ways of earning from home. Now, I would like to share how I earned from home last year. This is my list of make money online from home for 2011.

2. Freelancer.com. Aside from oDesk, I also got some article rewriting and spinning gigs occasionally from this site. Income: approx. $500
3. HubPages: I talked about how I earn from HubPages in a couple of posts already. I am happy to say that this is one passive way of earning income from my article (or hub) writing. Because unlike in being hired to write for others where I get paid one time, in HubPages, I get to earn some again and again even when I often write only 1-2 articles a month. However, it's not that easy. I also have to do my research. Income: approx. $30 per month.
4. Blogging: Blogging is just 4th in my list. Earnings came from showing Adsense ads, sponsored links, online contest prize, paid posts (I don't do much of this) and Adgitize. At least, I got back my investment of $10 for this blog's domain name. For my other blogs, I just use free sites. Income: approx. $20 per month.
I'm not posting this to show off. I just want to encourage others that it is possible to earn from home through legit sites and avoid the work from home scams. It is indeed a blessing because I get to do full time care for my 5 kids (no house help) and still earn some. The income was also very timely as we had to help pay for additional expenses for my mom's cataract laser surgery.
The future is still unclear whether my husband will be having a new job soon. So, maybe I might need to do more work from home this year. Thank You, Lord, for the opportunities you sent my way.
