Hello, my friends; welcome back to another money-making job post. I think we can all agree that 2020 ruined my new year’s resolutions of becoming rich as heck.
While I am disappointed at how the year played out, I think there are still some positive elements that we can recognize to show our thanks, even just the slightest.
If you were anything like I was during this year, you probably spent a heck of a lot of money on Amazon Prime, making Jeff Bezos extremely rich.
And now, while I’m not sitting here pointing fingers, I definitely think we should start making ourselves rich instead of others? Let’s take a look at how to make money in quarantine if we ever go back into one.
As much as I would like to think this isn’t possible, 2020 has taught me to refrain from my thinking so, never say never, my friends. Let’s take a look at how we can replenish our bank accounts this year.
Ways to Make Money During Quarantine
1. Start a Blog
Trust me, there is a reason that bloggers worldwide are making thousands of dollars around the world doing something they love. Not only is a blog a great way to express and post your thoughts about a job you love, but it’s also a great way to start making bank!
All you need to do is choose a niche you are interested in and start writing. It’s as easy as that!
Remember, it’s highly unlikely that you are going to make big money during the first couple of months, however with the right content and some affiliate marketing here and there, soon enough money will be pouring into your bank account!
2. Join Fiverr
If you haven’t heard of the freelancing site Fiverr, have you been living under a rock? Kidding, but not really. Freelancing is a great way to start earning money online during the quarantine.

Do you think you have what it takes to sell products online for money? If the answer is yes, then starting an e-commerce website might be the right job for you during the quarantine.
If you don’t have your own products to sell, you do have the option of starting a drop service business, which has become super popular in the last couple of years.
All you need to do is find a product or a couple products that are super popular in a specific niche, launch a super dope looking website on a site such as Spotify and buy a couple ads here and there to get the name of your online store out into the public eye.
